Milt and Christine are adventuresome accidental coffee farmers on the big Island of Hawaii. We enjoy sharing our knowledge of the island's history, culture and myriad natural wonders.
What a wonderful stay! We loved our time at Lani Iki (which truly is a "little heaven!"). The view is stunning and the accommodations were just right for us. We loved eating our meals out on the lanai and dining on the yummy fruit that Christine and Milt shared with us. We can't wait to return on our next trip to the Big Island! Mahalo nui loa!
Wow! What a great place! It has every thing to relax, get to intressting sites near by and look over the ocean and see the sunset. We, a family with two children had a amazing stay.
Like others said, the pictures can't possibly do this place justice. The views were amazing, and the area was really enjoyable overall.
If you are looking for a lovely place to stay with incredible bay views, privacy but an available host if need be, and excellent value for money, then this is it. The location was good for all our planned trips either to the beaches or the volcanoes. Clean, with all cooking utensils one might need, very useful material provided by the hosts to explore the area (including lots of snorkeling gear) as well as background information on Hawaiian culture, music etc, we could not have asked for more - and to watch the sunset from your own porch with hot tub is probably as good as it gets... go and enjoy!
we had a great stay at their awesome place! the view is just amazing, the tropical garden is beautiful and the location is quiet! the flat is perfect, very spacious and confortable! and if you nee anything, since Christine & Milt live right above your head, it's easy to ask! they were very helpful lending us snorkeling gears and body board. I would definitely recommend this place! it was super!
Don't tell anyone about Christine & Milt's place, we are afraid that if their place is discovered we will never be able to rent it again!
The view from the deck is unspeakably beautiful at about 1,200 feet over the Pacific with no obstructions over perhaps 100 degrees. The listing photos DO NOT do their view justice. We could have spent a few days just on the deck. The deck's immediate surroundings are C&M's fruiting garden, filled with delicious tomatoes, star fruits, lemons and plenty of other treats. There is even a hot tub on the deck! We loved watching geckos crawl over the deck and surrounding fruit trees. At C & M's place you will be surrounded by the sounds of nature at the end of a secluded road, yet you will be close enough to drive into Kona for a luau and you will be very close to Kona Boys Kayaks for gear rental and tours. Don't miss Annie's for delicious burgers and Up Country Bakery for refreshing smoothies.
The apartment itself is very well appointed, with a collection of books, music, family pictures, and a tiki bar. The kitchen is so well equipped that you could easily whip up a gourmet meal.
If you are even considering going to the Kona area of the Big Island make sure Christine and Milt's place is available and book your plane tickets accordingly!
Christing and Milt's 1+ Bedroom is very spacious, clean and well-equipped. The lanai is reason enough to rent this apartment from them - the views and hot tub are amazing. We had a great time!
This place is just PERFECT: lots of indoor and outdoor spaces, beautiful ocean view, wonderful garden, fully equipped kitchen, cable TV, books, etc. and also very clean.
Christine and Milt have been very nice and friendly. They provided us with help (tips regarding the best beaches around Captain Cook, etc.).
I definitely recommend staying at their place!
