Sandy, thank you very much! We had such a great time at your place. Wonderful view, all amenities and a very clean and spacious home. Sandy helped us to with a lot of tips and recommendations as the space is super unique and secluded in breathtaking nature. Mahalo! Highly recommended! We would love to come back! Best, Georg

This place is even better than advertised! We had planned to go in February, but pushed back our trip for a month in order to book this place. It was completely worth it. The ocean waves crash right below the deck and the birds chirp around the clock. More than enough room to sleep two people, and plenty of living space to relax in. The kitchen had everything we needed. The wifi was great. We never turned on the TV, so we can't speak to that. The location is pretty far from the main areas--it took us 3 hours to drive from the airport in Kona and Hilo is about a 45 minute drive. But if you are looking for a quiet spot by the ocean, this place is perfect. We never saw the host, but she was very responsive to all of our questions and requests before and during our stay, and even gave us some local tips! We miss the geckos already. I would book again in a heartbeat.

Sandy's upper Ocean view apartment is amazing. The views from the porch and around the surrounding area are like none other -Simply breathtaking. Sandy was a terrific host and the property exactly as explained. The directions were perfectly provided for this hidden gem, truly a slice of paradise. Everything about it exceeded our expectations.

This is a great place if you are looking to stay in the Puna district. The photos & description are accurate. Awesome ocean view from the deck. Great kitchen and a lot of space.

Magical location. Secluded and private. The constant sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks below will lull you to sleep.

This is the top floor of a two unit rental and appears to have the greater space in comparison to the lower unit, so you may have folks staying below you. We did, but we barely noticed they were there. The home sits on the volcanic south coast and the ocean is literally 50 feet from your back door providing amazing views and sound of the waves breaking on the rocks below. It was breathtakingly beautiful and made for some amazing nights of peaceful sleep. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment so that you can shop for you own groceries and prepare your own meals in the house and enjoy them at the dining room table inside our outside on the deck. And the visibility of the stars here...absolutely amazing. Make use of their telescope and take advantage of the lack of light pollution here and make sure to plan on some epic star-gazing. It rained pretty much the whole time we were here, so we didn't get to check out any of the beaches that were close by...we instead opted to head to Kona for beach time since it was sunny on that side of the island. Wifi is provided and the host was easily reachable when we had questions. Overall a wonderful stay in a very beautiful setting and clean, comfortable accommodations.

This location was ideal for us! It was close to all the things we wanted to do, including Volcano National Park, Black Sands Beach, and in general the lower end of the island. It's also only a short drive to anywhere else we wanted to go. You are directly right over the top of the waves, & have a great view of the ocean. The location itself has private parking, and washer and dryer available. Sandy was very good with communication, the location is quite remote in many aspects, and it's definitely not what one would typically think of being on the lion island vacation pay we liked it
