A beautiful, perfect place. If it's available, don't hesitate -- definitely book it!
This place is so amazing and a great value. The location is very proximate to the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park (so it's easy to go early in the morning or late at night to check out the sunrise/sunset or the glow of the lava and stars at night). You won't see or hear another person from the house, but yet you're still in a residential area. It was wonderful to spend the day in the house, bathed in the sunlight that comes from the windows. All of the amenities in the house are the best of the best -- it was even a pleasure to cook meals there. The bed is huge and heavenly. The wifi is terrific too! Mike even has guidebooks and maps of park and the Big Island. One tip is to bring some groceries with you -- the restaurants in Volcano are decent but quite pricey for what you get. Mike was very thoughtful and a pleasure to work with. He added all these personal touches upon arrival and during our stay. I won't ruin the surprises, but they were delightful. I even ran into him at 6 AM at the volcano as he was preparing for a morning hike! I'd say this is by far the best vacation rental we've ever had. If this place is available, don't hesitate -- just book it! You won't regret it.
