Our stay with Wayne and Shan was excellent! The location was quiet and far from any busy roads. If you're looking for a real get away from touristic crowds, this is the place. There is also a beautiful state park near by, Hamakua Forest Reserve that it's worth to check it out.
The interior of the apartment was immaculate and included everything one needs. From a full selection of kitchen items, including an electric hot plate for cooking, pans, tableware, cups and glasses to a mini microwave and even a wine bottle opener. The bowl of fresh local fruit, coffee and muffins added a nice welcoming touch.
The living area and sleeping area are both well equipped. The seating could use a slight upgrade to maybe a more comfortable love seat. The wicker chairs (two) almost didn't accommodate my boyfriend's 6'4" frame. The seating however, should play little if any role in one's decision to rent this perfectly put together, spacious, and extremely well kept location.
A GPS is highly recommended for your initial drive up the hill, especially if arriving at night as we did. Wayne waited up for us as our rental car acquisition was delayed topped with a one hour drive from Kona airport. We did arrive late and at no point did we feel our arrival time was an inconvenience to Wayne.
This was an EXCELLENT choice and if you're looking to stay away from the much more tourist packed south side of the Big Island, look no further and simply book this location.
