Beautiful house; tropical oasis
The house is in a beautiful quiet gated community. It's a short distance (few minute drive) from shopping/restaurants. The house is a very large, three bedroom bungalow, which was very clean. I also liked the little labels on stuff like the linens and light switches - it made it easy to figure out and is an example of the thoughtfulness put into everything. Similarly, there were menus from local restaurants, snorkelling equipment, books on the island, etc... I was happy to have a lot of condiments and other staples on hand, since it's such a pain stocking everything for a one week visit. We were there end of July and it was hot out. The pool was a nice temperature, and the kids spent hours in it. The waterfall is also an excellent feature. The backyard is well-treed so it has good privacy. The area of the big island is pretty arid, but this yard has been wonderfully cared for and watered to make a great tropical garden with lots of lush plants. The kids enjoyed finding some of the snails and the many geckos. They were also very excited to harvest their own pineapple that was growing in the yard. All the arrangements went off very easily and smoothly and we felt very well cared-for. It was our first trip to Hawaii, and we started contemplating our return before we had left. Thanks to Wren for making this such a great experience. Btw - apologies to the neighbours. We had surprised the kids with the house and pool, and their joy at discovering everything may have been a few decibels louder than I expected. :)
