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!

Beautiful house and convenient location

  • 5 of 5
The house is beautiful, spacious, and has everything you need; the large garden is a wonder for kids to explore. We were only 6, but 10 people can be very comfortable here. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a blender for making tasty smoothies. We benefited from the snorkel gear, towels, boogie board, coolers, and even clothed for cooler weather (which you'll need if you go to Mauna Kea). We stayed 7 days and were sad to leave. Marci and Chuck were very helpful to us when we needed them, plus they had fruit and coffee for us on arrival.
I liked the closeness to Honaunau for picnic and sunset and 2 step for snorkeling. The house is very close to a wonderful fruit stand (at mile 103-104 on hwy 11), and if you want to explore Kohala and the south part of the island, all from one location, this will be a great place to stay.

We stayed here for 6 nights. The house is very cosy and well situated between kealakekua bay and two steps, which is a wonderful choice. We were with more than 10 people which we would not recommend. 10 is really good, but more is quite tight. kitchen was not very well equipped for the amount of people, that suppose to fit in. fridge was compared to this really great. there were enough beachtowels and some boogie boards and flippers.
marci and chuck did the best so we could feel very comfortable and brought some stuff for the kitchen over that were needed. they are very warm hearted people and helped us with every question we had.
mahalo for everything and we would defiantly come again with less people :-)

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.
