“An area / vacation that will NEVER be forgotten!”
Reviewed 21 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

There are only positive things to say about the Cliff House, the love cation and owner..... This vacation was one that will go down in our "books" of fabulous vacations.... the pictures on the web site just don't do this property justice! It is VERY private, VERY quiet and VERY beautiful!!!!! The only sounds you hear are the birds, ocean, cows and an occasional chirp of a gecko (yes... They chirp). Richard M. Is "the bomb".... What a gracious host! He went over and above to make our visit unforgettable! We will DEFINITELY be coming back! thank you, Richard, for sharing your treasure with us!

“Privacy and a view!”
Reviewed 14 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We spent 4 nights at the Cliff House and our only regret is not staying longer. After 5 days of volcano-related activities on the east side of the island, this was the perfect "second-half" of our Big Island vacation. The view from the lanai of the Cliff House is every bit as good as others say, and pictures can't do proper justice to the feeling of waking up and having it be the first thing you see. The house itself is clean and well-appointed, full kitchen, carport, comfy beds, etc, but we found that we spent most of our time sitting outside and just taking it all in. The only other houses you can see (and that can see you) require binoculars to make out (with a nifty and high-powered pair of them left at the house for your use). If you want to get away from it all in a place that feels like it is at the end of the world, this is the house to rent.

“Amazing view in a really nice cosy quiet house”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I wasn't sure what to expect from the cliff house only that the view would be spectacular and it was exactly that. Facing the sea and with the valley and coastline going off in the distance it is definitely a special place.

Richard was enthusiastic and friendly. We had a welcome basket awaiting us, he also called up to make sure we were OK when we arrived which was nice but was never intrusive and only called up again to ask if it was OK for the neighbour to do some gardening nearby.

The house itself was great little place and was as it looked like in the pictures, all things were catered for from kitchen utensils to towels etc.
and we had nothing bad to say about it except that the main bedroom let in a little too much light which meant my wife and I woke up at the crack of dawn each morning.
We also had to shut all windows and doors as we found gekko's and other crawlies entering the house despite the netting, be warned if you are not used to them! :)

Despite the above I would definitely come back and if we are ever back in Hawaii, the cliff house would be top on my list.

Mahalo Richard.

Matt.

“Amazing place, great memory.”
Reviewed 4 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We spent one night on Oct 28th, the view on the Cliff house is absolutely amazing! We arrived around 2 pm on that day and don't wanna go out again. The owner Richard is a vey nice person and kindly offer us a basket of fruits and some Kona coffee. Just remember to bring your food to cook before you arrive there.
The only thing we think need to be improved is the kitchen need a dishwasher and a range hood. In addition, there is only one bathroom in the house.
