This location is soooo stunning and breathtaking! I would love to go there again. The bed is right next to the ocean!!! I will never forget the days we have spent there. Definately recommend it!!!!
Sandy's home was an amazing place to stay on our first trip to Hawaii. The entire communication process was so easy -- Sandy sent us comprehensive instructions and lots of handy tips about the area. The home was extremely clean, tasteful, and the kitchen was well-appointed. The view is incredible and the nearby town of Pahoa was quaint and a great place to buy groceries and pick up supplies on our way to visiting Volcanoes National Park.
Wow! I can't say enough about this place. Sandy provided great details about the house as well as the surrounding area. She sent us 3 emails a few days before arrival with all the information needed to check in/out among other info. We spent a lot of time just sitting on the deck and watch the ocean waves. The hot tub and hammock were definitely a plus. The place is bigger than we anticipated, the pictures didn't do its justice. It's fully loaded with everything we needed and more (even had a few snorkel sets). The washer/dryer were nice to have. Even thought there's no A/C, there is a ceiling fan and a standing fan, and the nights get cool and breathy. The sound of the waves crashing and creatures chirping took a bit for us city folks to get used to, I recorded them to use as sleeping sounds for later :-). There is a local farmer's market on Kalapana-Kapoho Rd (turn left from the house and goto the end, $3 parking) every Wed. night, there's a lot of delicious food, live music, local crafts, etc. You can also take a walk on the lava rocks to a beach nearby. Over all, this was quite an experience for us and would definitely recommend to others. Thanks Sandy!
Sandy had great communication leading up to my arrival at the space, then was very gracious about simply letting me enjoy the beauty of the ocean right outside the door. Everything you could need (including ice cubes in the shape of fish!) was there. It was exactly what I needed.
For the price you can't beat the location - the view and ocean surf are fantastic! The apartment has everything you really need and we felt very welcomed, including a comfortable bed. I miss waking up and going to sleep with the sound of the surf!
Even saw spinner dolphin and flying fish from the deck while drinking morning coffee ;-)
Sandy's place is a hidden treasure. We stayed here three nights as part of our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing. First impressions were that it is exactly as described, with beautiful ocean views that can be enjoyed from either the hammock, spa, lanai or even from lying in bed! The amenities were all clean and in working order and having access to wifi and the washing facilities was a bonus.
We found the location perfectly private - excellent for driving to Hilo, Volcano and exploring the Pahoa coast line. Sandy left very detailed instructions on how to get to her place and also with very helpful information on the surrounding area.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone and only wish we lived closer than Australia so that we could come back for more frequent visits.
The oceanfront studio Sandy hosts is wonderful. It's the bare essentials-- a nice bed, a kitchen with great cooking equipment, a table on the covered back deck and less than twenty feet from the beautiful waters of Hawaii. The studio is in a very rural area, but Sandy provided great directions to the house as well as helpful information about local spots to eat and explore. I loved it here. You can sleep with the back door open and listen to the waves and the frogs all night long. The studio is remarkably private, despite there being another unit upstairs. It's a great place to unplug, take days at a slow pace and recharge.
Das Apartment ist sehr idyllisch direkt an der Küste gelegen (das Foto mit dem gedeckten Tisch passt perfekt). Es war sehr groß, sauber und sehr gut eingerichtet - alles wie in der Beschreibung angegeben. Sandy hat uns zur bestmöglichen Anreise und einem reibungslosen Aufenthalt eine sehr gute Wegbeschreibung und Auflistung mit Informationen zur Verfügung gestellt.
Da das Apartment direkt in einem Waldstück an der Küste liegt, konnte man zum Einschlafen am Nachtleben der Waldbewohner sowie dem Wellengang teilhaben, was uns sehr gefallen hat.
Der Sonnenaufgang beim Frühstück auf dem Balkon ist unübertroffen :-)
MAHALO für einen schönen Aufenthalt.

Our stay at Sandy's place was a very relaxing and pleasing experience. The view from the lanai and the hot tub was breathtakingly beautiful. As for the inside of the apartment, the room was small, but comfortable and quaint. The bed was comfy and the whole apartment was set up nicely to accommodate a couple. Sandy remained in contact with us via email to be sure we were doing ok, and also to be sure we didn't miss the Wednesday night market just down the street. (The local market food was great, and the live band was entertaining) All in all, we would definitely stay here next time we come to the Big Island!
This place was literally right on the ocean and the photos are accurate. We loved going to sleep at night to the sound of the waves! So cool to be able to lay in bed and see the ocean! This place is out of the way and perfect for folks that want to get away from a large hotel/resort feel. Real value to have a kitchen in your room. Sandy pays attention to the details like having snorkels, beach towels, swim noodles. It was so nice to have a milk frothing wand to make a latte in the morning! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you might need to cook a meal or heat something up. Everything was also super clean! Honestly I could live in this small studio, it was PERFECT!
