The view from the large back deck of Mauna Kea and the valley below was incredible. We enjoyed watching the sunrises each day from the deck. The climate at the house was great. The evenings were nice and cool which was very conducive for relaxing and sleeping. The living room and kitchen were great for hanging out, eating, and relaxing. The décor of the house was beautiful. The turkeys that hung out in the front yard were fun to watch. The backyard kitchen under the straw roof was nice and it was a great place to hang out. The house was big enough for the 5 of us to enjoy hanging out and eating together while at the same time we all had our privacy too. Upgraded Internet services were able to handle all our devices (laptops, tablets, cell phones using wi-fi) without any issues. Google Chromecast and Amazon Fire Stick worked flawlessly. We were able to stream that day's photos and music everyday. Hot tub was... hot. Temperature control would be a nice improvement, but otherwise nice. Love the climate. Coming from a very sunny, dry California, the wet cool weather is exactly what I wanted. It was great to drive to the 85 to 90 degree beaches, then come home to where it was nice and cool. Loved it. Fantastic hike very close-by at the end of White Road. There are a couple obstacles, but very doable. A hike of about 40 minutes will give you a great payoff (if the weather is cooperating) at the end of the trail. The trail is a mixture of everything: inclines, declines, dirt, rock, mud, puddles, stairs, and a sheer 2,000 ft cliff. What more could you ask for? Proceed at your own risk - but we didn't have a problem. The custom made wood furniture in the home is beautiful. There are gorgeous wood floors throughout the house which are made from local wood. There is a high bar between the kitchen and living room which makes for a great place to sit while enjoying snacks, appetizers, and beverages. We cooked several nights as the kitchen was well stocked and it was nice to have access to the herbs and spices. We enjoyed the beautiful view of Mauna Kea and being able to walk out onto the large deck. Enough cannot be said about the amazing views. The home is a quick 5 minute drive to the town of Waimea where there is the Isaacs Art Center with estate collections of art and furniture as well as new furniture and art made by local living masters. Great restaurants, farmers markets, and wine shop.
