Beautiful property tucked away from the crowds. Gigi is a warm, fabulous hostess. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants a different stay on the big island
JULIUS, usRomance trip
Good 6.0
Its OK if you dont want AC
The property and grounds are very nice clean. The service was OK, but not outstanding like some of the other reviews. We got nickel and dimed on some charges. "Pizza Night" means bring your own. They advertise free snorkel gear but dont count on any being available, and you will want to snorkel as there is a great beach right across the street. Might be nice in December but I would not advise staying at this property during summer months. The room was very uncomfortable at night until the dewpoint was reached, and uninhabitable after about noon. But hey, you are there to be at the beach or out and about, right? At least that was what the host pitched about this being a typical Hawaiian "island life" property. Funny thing is we saw AC units all over the place, so that got to be kind of a joke. More people like AC on the Big Island than you let on Gigi.

A wonderful, relaxing place to stay. Gigi was full of tips on places to visit and best companies to book with for ocean activities. Highly recommend!

Pleasant and relaxing, just as Hawaii should be
Wonderful place to stay, clean and well maintained grounds, comfortable beds, close proximity to great snorkeling and easy access to grocery store (5 minute drive). Property manager Gigi was especially helpful and a pleasure to meet. Would definitely stay at the Big Island Retreat again!!

We loved our stay here! The owner is very accommodating and there to help. She's very kind and on top of it. Our lil room was so comfy and perfect. I love that we could hear the ocean waves lap while laying in bed. The bed was very comfortable and so was everything else. We'd definitely stay here again.
