Interaction with Guests
I enjoy having coffee in the morning with my guests. It's a good way to get to know them, and share with them interesting facts about the island, and the wonderful sights to see in the area.
No smoking or pets
David was very communicative and welcoming. Coffee and tropical fruit plate in the morning was awesome. The room, especially the beautiful rain shower with views of the ocean left me feeling refreshed and peaceful. Lovely piece of property...easy to find. Thank you David.
Immaculate and spacious room with a luxurious ensuite. Tasteful decor and great attention to detail. This place is definitely worth staying in.
Fall asleep to tree frogs and wake up to birds. It's about a 50 minute drive to volcano national park. There's also eateries in Pahao (10 minute drive).
David was a friendly host, the coffee and fruit in the morning was a bonus. He has three well behaved dogs that are super cute.
Lovely location. Lovely home. Lovely host. Dave was very accommodating, and informed us of the best sights and restaurants in the area. Recommended.
What a gorgeous place! The views from this spacious bedroom are what you expect from a vacation in paradise: the Pacific Ocean in the background and the grassy yard will make you love your decision to stay here. The master bathroom is also a show stopper with its green granite and waterfall shower... Showering there is the best way to start your day while seeing the sun rise over the ocean. David is a great host, who provided great advice on what to do while in the big island. The doggies are adorable and friendly. Great base to explore the volcano, lava fields and snorkeling at Wai 'Opae tide pools. Awesome fruit breakfast too!
We had a great time as David was very welcoming and the dogs made our vacation homely since our furry friends were not with us. David had a good feel of the area and recommended some good options for exploring the area. The house was magnificent with a great view of the ocean, the bedroom was very spacious with a huge closet, and the bathroom is something you see in magazines.
My boyfriend and I stayed with David for a week. He was a great host. Very friendly, funny, and welcoming. He made us breakfast of fresh island fruit every day, and helped us find the best local places to visit. The Kapoho Tide Pools (Waiopae) was an amazing snorkeling experience that David took us to. David's house is beautiful. You can watch the sun come up over the ocean in the morning right from bed. David's dogs are also very friendly and nice to have around. Altogether a fantastic and highly recommended place to stay.
My daughter and I just completed a five night stay at David's magnificent house. First about David....he is a terrific host who is warm, interesting and accommodating. From the minute I booked my trip, David was responsive to every question and request that I had. He had great suggestions on places to go and restaurants to visit. I hesitated about booking a room at someone's house, but I could not have felt more comfortable! The house is beautiful, in an incredibly serene setting. I generally judge accommodations by the bathroom, and this one did not disappoint! The rain shower was magnificent with a gorgeous view! The room was very large and comfortable enough to share with my 21 year old daughter! We would start every day with freshly picked papaya that was amazingly delicious, and great conversations with David. I would DEFINATELY recommend staying at David's!
