This is our ohana (in-law unit) downstairs.

Interaction with guests

We rent our home when we are off-island, but are available 24/7 via cell phone and text messages. We have wonderful cleaning staff, landscapers, property manager, and a cadre of professionals who can handle any needs that might arise. You just have to let us know if you are experiencing any problem, and we'll respond quickly. We also rent the ohana (in-law unit) at ground level. But there are no internal stairs connecting the two levels, so each unit is completely separate, with plenty of privacy. Our Airbnb guests have all been splendid and considerate.

Other things to note

We will email our series of "Great Places to See on the Big Island", with links to websites, maps and recommendations for great restaurants, favorite beaches and art galleries, events, etc.
You set the pace. It's your vacation.

Refrigerator and stove provide a bit of luxury--big stainless steel double door side-by-side refrigerator-freezer, full gas range with grill. Washer with dryer are available for your use in the carport, with all supplies provided.

Caryl has a lovely, clean home in a quiet, respectful neighborhood. The home was perfect for what we needed. We stayed for two weeks. It was very nice.

Caryl was so nice and sent a ton of info about the house and the island. She was quick to respond to any questions we had. The house was also really nice and had a great outdoor porch area to relax after long days of exploring.

This is a gem of a place, located a short drive from the airport it provides a great view from the deck over the ocean and is still very close to Kona. The house has all the comforts of home you could ask for and acted as a great base for us to explore the west coast from. The outside deck was the highlight for us as it provides great views of the sunset and a great view to go with a morning coffee. Caryl was fantastic for communication and upon booking provided all the information you could possibly need relating to things to do and to see. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would love to return!

Great place. I had a wonderful time staying at Caryl's place. Beautiful apartment and great location. Waking up every morning overlooking the ocean is unforgettable experience. Kitchen appliances were great for cooking. Everything was perfect. I would recommend this place to anyone who is considering to stay here.

Caryl's house was absolutely amazing. Although it was located nearby the airport, the neighborhood was very quiet. We could see the ocean from the porch and the view was fantastic. The house has basically everything you need during a trip, including beach gear. We especially loved the kitchen which was large and well equipped. We cooked almost every meal and didn't come up with a single problem. Caryl was a spectacular host. Communication was great, and Caryl was kind and flexible enough to offer us both an early check-in and late check-out. We are very grateful for Caryl who made our stay so wonderful and would definitely like to come back again.

Before arriving in Hawaii, Caryl sent us some very valuable information on the area with activities. Located just minutes from the Kona Airport, and only 15 minutes to town and some incredible beaches to the north (Kua Bay, Hapuna). We found staying here was a great location to explore the area on the kona side of the island. The place is perfect with all amenities (even beach equipment) and an incredible view of the ocean. The communication was great and we liked it so much we stayed an additional 2 nights. Highly recommend staying here and we plan to stay again the next time we come to Hawaii!

Love meeting new people. Thatʻs one of the reasons we enjoy the guests in our ohana (in-law apt.).
Love to cook. I have a huge collection of recipe books with cooking from many countries.
Really love beaches on Hawaii, snorkeling, reading at the beach, napping at the beach.
Love showing family and friends around the island, sharing favorite cool secret spots and restaurants. Enjoy living aloha on Hawaii time.
