The property is in a very large subdivision of mostly 1 acre parcels and the climate is basically rain forest mitigated by the trade winds off the ocean, so the surrounding environment is very green and usually balmy and tranquil with the daytime skies are either cloudy to very cloudy or a brilliant blue or sometimes both and very dark at night.

The space

Situated on an acre of land that slopes gently downward toward a bluff at the ocean’s edge, the property offers a unique environment perfect for a peaceful and relaxing vacation experience. Enjoy the tranquility of the zen garden, long walks along the coastline, or simply sit and relax amid the serenity of a shady retreat between lily ponds. The property is fully landscaped with over 100 varieties of flora, including: bamboo, water lilies, fragrant flowers, ornamental vines, succulents, and fruit-bearing trees.

Take a relaxing dip in the Japanese-style soaking tub that spills over into a gorgeous, 42’ long, salt water, infinity edge lap pool. Soak up some sun or recline under an umbrella on a poolside lounge chair overlooking the ocean. The pool deck area includes an outdoor hot water shower.

When conditions are right, the snowy peak of Mauna Kea can be seen from the property, as can whales, dolphins, sea turtles, Nene and other species unique to Hawaii. Fishing is a common activity along the bluff.

Accommodations are in a luxurious oceanfront home offering spectacular views. The residential building includes the owners’ residence and two two bedroom apartments, one above the other. The two floor plans are identical and each has approximately 880 SF of living area. Both the upstairs and downstairs units can be rented as either a one- or two-bedroom unit. When rented as a one bedroom unit, the second bedroom and bathroom are closed off and remain unoccupied for the duration of the one bedroom guests’ stay.

For all the configurations, the maximum occupancy is two people per bedroom, so a one bedroom rental is limited to a maximum occupancy of two people and a four bedroom has a maximum occupancy of eight people, etc.

We can not say enough about our stay. The property was spectacular. It gave us an opportunity to enjoy the big island and all its splendor. The property and our hosts made us feel welcome and we had everything we needed. The beautiful sunrises while taking a swim as the ocean wave crashed in the background will bring us back again and again.

Our stay at Dan's place is the highlight of our entire trip in Hawaii. My family had a great time there! Although I have seen all the pictures before hand, I'm still amazed by the stunning view from the apartment and the beautiful garden he has. Not to mention the house is spotless and equipped with really nice furnitures and electronics. Dan provided us with all the check-in information ahead of time. And he welcomed us when we arrive. Dan is ever so friendly. He is very responsive when we have any questions. At the same time, he gave us a lot of space to enjoy the tranquility of the property. We were super lucky to be the only guests during our short stay. Chilling by the pool or enjoying the spa while listening to the waves are the best. We highly recommend Dan's place to anyone who is coming to the big island. It would be an absolutely unforgettable experience! 大岛最美的回忆,谢谢Dan!

We had a wonderful time. The accommodations were beautiful and perfect. I wanted a relaxing vacation and I got it. If you are looking for the hustle and bustle of the tourist side (Kona is a 2 HR drive away) then this is not the place for you. But if you are looking to relax, spend time with locals, and experience real Hawaii, then there is no better place to be. I miss it already!

We can't say enough good things about Dan's house. It is located in a quiet neighborhood. Everything looks exactly like the pictures. The pool area and the wide open ocean view is beyond amazing. The apartment is extremely clean and well organized. Location is perfect for exploring the east side of the island. Dan is a nice host and explained everything upon check-in.
