We Will Be Back!

  • 4 of 5

Our weeklong stay with Cecelia & Neil Paulsen was very enjoyable. The owners had most everything we needed for our vacation, from maps to points of interest to beach equipment. Very informative on places to go, do, see. Thank you for a great week!

Wonderful place will look to book again when I'm back on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed my stay here. A nice little apartment for a very resonable price. Very comfortable bed, nice little living room set up. Kitchen came in very handy to help save on food costs. The owners are very nice and was also very helpful. Under a 15 minute drive from the airport and around 5 minutes from Kona.

Excellent spot for couples to relax!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent our 20 th wedding anniversary here. Trying to figure out how soon we can go back! Cec and Neil are wonderful hosts with beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and coolers. Great tips on where to visit, eat and relax. The Big Island guide book was so useful! We were blown away with the fresh fruit and many attractions to take in. Truly the perfect vacation. Thank you!!!!

Excellent...everything you need for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable bed, good wifi, lots of suggestions from the owners, we used the Bbq, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella, travel guide and more inside the suite. The owners really made our stay special...we felt like we were staying at a friends house.

If this place is available book it quick....we almost missed out.

A wondeful place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights at the house of Cecilia and Neil. We rented the "small appartment" which is not small at all- we had a huge living room, a very good kitchen with lots of equipment and a nice bathroom and sleeping room. Cecilia and Neil are both very friendly and helpful. They will show you a lot of nice places to go to and they offered us lots of fresh fruits from their garden! If you are not into the hotel stuff and you like it quiet and want to get to know very nice people, this is the best choice of big island! I hope we will be back one day.

Good place for good people

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed stay in Cecilia≠il's property. It is not close to the beach, but weather and home conditions are more comfortable. This property is for those who do not plan to spend whole days in the beach under hot sun. The property is clean and well-maintained, as well as the owners provide good customer service. We will recommend this property to our friends or relatives.
