“Pure Bliss - so grateful we stubble on this amazing piece of paradise...”
Reviewed 21 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This was such a wonderful discovery and unforgettable stay..
We feel so grateful we stubble on this amazing piece of paradise...
The location is unbeatable, walking distance from the magical bay where dolphins come and rest... We spent an entire morning swimming with them and then found another little park and swam with a friendly turtle for a good half hour... It was amazing!!
The apartment is super cute, cozy and comfortable and best part is you can see the ocean from the bed!
Thank you so much for your hospitality - we will be back for sure!
Sending you tons of love from Costa Rica!

“Vacation Bliss”
Reviewed 15 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Wow! What a location! The accommodation is right on the shoreline in a small bay within Kealakekua Bay. Put your feet up and watch the amazing sunsets while sipping on a Margarita or two. Take a kayak across the bay to snorkel and swim with dolphins near Captain Cook monument. Beautiful, small Spinner dolphins surrounded us and jumped out of the water. Numerous whales also frequented the bay during our stay.

The accommodation was extremely comfortable - I just loved the king sized bed. We spent very little time inside as there is a complete outdoor living space with all the mod cons. Loved the outdoor shower too! If you have forgotten any toiletries, Rusty and Janice have that covered with even new toothbrushes in the vanity. The lifestyle is that of traditional Hawaiian life where you only go inside to sleep but then again, you don't even have to do that.

Speaking of Rusty and Janice, you could not meet a nicer couple. They are friendly and very knowledgeable about Hawaii and it's sights. They go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

You will need to rent a car but that is the price you pay for a secluded location. There is plenty of parking space within their property.

We are a couple in our 60s and thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay. We can't wait to return.

“The best vacation rental ever!!”

We stayed at many places around the world, but Rusty and Janice's is definitely among the most relaxing and enjoyable places we've been to! On our first day we saw dolphins jumping in the Caption Cook Bay, relaxed on the hammock and cooked the best outdoor meal ever! If you're enjoying being outside in tropical weather, love mother nature, snorkeling and like getting some time to chill out just look no further :)

Everything is high end, fully equipped and you have all that you can asked for for a nice day at the beach, life jackets snorkel chairs swim suit and even a portable crib if you have little once. We would love to come back and stay again.

“Relaxing Honeymoon”
Reviewed 28 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

My husband and I enjoyed the end of our honeymoon here. I typically stay farther north on the Big Island, but this was a nice change of pace. Being so close to Kealakekua Bay makes snorkeling at any time convenient. The house is nice and quiet, which was exactly what we were looking for. Some things, like cups, were in slightly strange places, but once you find them it's good. Shelly was staying in the adjacent house, and was very helpful. I found that the bugs in this area was higher than other places I've been, but even that was manageable. I'm not sure I'd trust sleeping outside, but that's a nice option at this location as well.
