  • My husband and I had the best experience ever!! We arrived late on Thanksgiving day tired and hungry from a full day of traveling. When we arrived Scott and Caroline came out to greet us and even asked if we wanted to join them by the fire. We were too tired, so we went to the cabin and they so generously provided a complete thanksgiving meal for us. Words can't thank them enough. When we got to the cabin...... its even nicer and better than the pics. They are way too modest about what they have to offer. Also anything that you could think of needing for your Hawaii vacation is there, ie cooler, beach towels, beach chairs, boogie board etc. Also the cabin is fully equipped for cooking. It is set back from the main road and also from Scott and Caroline's house too. You have complete privacy to sit out on the deck and BBQ and/or sit on the other deck in the fern grove adjacent to the house. It is a very quiet and peaceful place. This is a five star place hands down. My husband and I hope to come back here many times in the future.

  • My 24 year old daughter and I had a fantastic time in this cabin. the setting is lovely, beautiful and quiet. Caroline and Scott have created a space that is completely practical and warm. Everything you need to cook is right at hand, including sharp knives. I would return in a heartbeat.

Hi! My name is Caroline Carson. My husband Scott and I have lived here on the Big Island for 19 years. Originally from Oahu, we decided to move here to start a family and to start our own business. We have 2 children as well as 3 dogs, 6 cats and 5 chickens! We live on 5 acres in one of the most beautiful places on the Big Island called Kaloko Mauka. We are close enough to the heart of Kona, and yet removed from it all up here on the slope of Mount Hualalai. Cooler weather, lush foliage, native birds and hiking trails surround us. Come and enjoy this slice of Heaven!
