About the Owner

Marci and I(Chuck) moved here from Seattle and are crazy about living here, no thought of what clothes to wear, always shorts and flipflops! 80+ degree ocean water, It just doesn't get any better!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the snorkeling and boogie boarding gear, we did not have to rent a thing. We also really enjoyed all the fruit on the property, esp. the bananas, mangos, and papaya. FYI, in the winter the best place to see fish in relatively calm waters is Kalalu'u. There is sand there to and shade! P.S. Don't forget to try all the Kona Coffee!

FANTASTIC HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently spent 7 wonderful days in Hawaii and stayed in Marci's dream house. The house is immaculate, great size and totally furnished with everything you could need. From the moment we arrived Chuck and Marci were there to greet us and helped us to get settled in. There is a nice size yard with lush surroundings and patio furniture for relaxing under palm trees. Also provided were snorkle gear, ice chest, boogie boards and other items. We will be coming back in the near future for sure. We could not have asked for a nicer host couple to make sure our vacation was all we hoped it to be. I suggest Marci's dream house to anyone wanting a nice out of the way place to stay. Maholo Chuck and Marci!!

The house is ideally located, lots of sun in the spring and close to the ocean, where we can snorkel. We definitely enjoyed it wholeheartedly. My kids think this was their best vacation and I have to include their experience in this house. We got to enjoy the very unique backyard where all sorts tropical fruit trees are. Eating apple bananas, soursop just harvested was quite an experience. It is not hard to tell that the owners have put a lot of thoughts into the house, from body boards to bikes, from sandwich bags to hand towels. Very convenient! I have told a couple of my friends who are interested in visiting big island next time, I am sure they will be as fulfilled as we were. Highly recommended.

Super family get-away, with all sorts of extras!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Marci's Tropical Dream from March 18-24, 2014, and couldn't be more pleased. We brought 10 people in all, mostly family but also a family friend/couple. Our party included two married couples, two teenaged children from one of the couples, two seniors (the teens' grandmothers on both sides of the family, one of whom was in a wheelchair), and two additional single women. For two dinners, we were joined by additional family members who live on the island as well. The house easily accommodated all of us. The house was clean and comfortable, and in a great location. The kitchen came fully equipped, including a nice blender perfect for making tropical smoothies and blended drinks. The oven, toaster oven, microwave, dish washer, coffee maker, and large refrigerator/freezer met our needs well. The bedding was clean, high-quality, and comfortable. The house included both bath and beach towels, with plenty to go around. An added bonus is the variety of beach gear (snorkels, fins, boogie boards). We didn't use the bicycles, but they were a nice touch. The owners were wonderfully accommodating. We recommend this property highly.

How did we get so lucky to find this house for our vacation?

  • 5 of 5
This is the place, stop looking for and waisting your time. It is awesome!
It seems to be in jungle, but same time next to the highway. The garden... to see how are growing the plants and fruits and geckos and all these exciting sounds. We made a recording of these and now in home it is possible to jump right back.
In this house, there is everything you need and even more, nothing is missing. And the photos represent it very well. The owners have furnished all like for home not for just rental house, you can feel the touch of creators. They always are willing to help and suggest and more, we were surrounded from their warm alohas.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
I was fortunate enough to have been able to spend 1 month at Marci's Tropical Dream on the Big Island of Hawaii. Needless to say it was a vacation I will never forget. Chuck and Marci exemplify the meaning of aloha and made sure I was comfortable during my stay. They were able to make recommendations on places to go and things to do as well as restaurants to try. Absolutely everything I could have asked for was provided for me including books, movies, snorkel gear, boogie boards, coolers etc. This home is very spacious and clean and the geckos are friendly. It truly was a home away from home and I will miss it greatly. Aloha!
