traveler reviews for this honaunau house rental


Review submitted: August 25, 2014   Date of arrival: August 16, 2014

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!!

Review submitted: April 19, 2014   Date of arrival: April 4, 2014

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!

Review submitted: March 26, 2014   Date of arrival: March 18, 2014

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.
