Interaction with Guests
We send you a Welcome Package by FedEx a month prior to your stay. The Welcome Package includes a map, detailed driving directions, the house key, and lots of useful info for your stay.
Our neighborhood, Hawaiian Paradise Park, is a true paradise! Just stroll along the ocean cliffs and see/hear/smell the crashing surf and you'll know why. It's so peaceful you can hear birds all day and frogs and night, and the Big Island air is the certified cleanest in the United States. You can walk or bicycle for miles up and down the coastline!
The Big Island is BIG. You really need a car to get around! Luckily car rental is really inexpensive on the Big Island, starting at only around $25/day, and all the big rental companies (Avis, Hertz, National...) serve both Hilo and Kona airports. You can also contact Discount Hawaii Car Rental for even lower rates.
There are good roads to all the principal sites (volcano, waterfalls, black sand beaches, etc.) but if you want to explore remote areas, without paved roads, you should consider renting a 4 wheel drive vehicle.
1 night minimum stay most of the year, 5 night minimum during holidays (around Christmas/New Year's and Easter/Merry Monarch Festival).
