Very Good

“Great house, location and owners!!”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2014

We stayed here for 4 nights in November. The booking was very easy to make, the owner replied promptly to our request and the house was easy to find. The location of the house is fabulous. It's very close to stores, restaurants and of course, the ocean, but yet far enough that you aren't in a busy spot heavy with traffic (I clocked the drive to the boardwalk area with all the stores and restaurants from the house and it was about 4-6 minutes). The house itself is very spacious (especially for one couple), very clean (a huge bonus) and easy to get around (no stairs). We didn't end up using most of the house anyway but I'm sure for larger groups the spacing of the bedrooms and bathrooms is essential for privacy, which you will have in this house. The bedrooms are large as well as the bathrooms. The living room is huge and so is the kitchen. The property is stocked with everything that you may need (towels, soap, bath tissue, detergent, sun screen, paddle board, ect. ect. the list goes on and on). Also, the higher end washer and dryer were great to have. The deck/patio is enormous and runs along the whole side of the house along the ocean. Even more impressive was the super soft grassy area with the hammocks and the outdoor shower. Access to the ocean is just steps away. The sunsets and sunrises were spectacular as well as the fish that we spotted just sitting outside in the mornings with our coffees. Richard, the owner, and his wife were super friendly and easy to deal with. Overall, we had a fantastic stay and time at this property with memories that will last us a lifetime. I would definitely recommend this rental and hope to stay here again in the future.

Fantastic property right on the ocean with fantastic views from inside and outside. The home is well appointed and comfortable with great living, cooking and dining areas. Yard is well manicured with beautiful landscaping, several area to relax and enjoy the view. The owner of this property was extremely easy to work with and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. We will definitely rent this property again.

“My Favorite Place!!!”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2013

This beautiful house exceeded all of my expectations. I stayed here for 10 days for the Ironman in October of 2013. It is an ideal location for the race...not too far away, but not so close that you are overwhelmed by the craziness of race week. The view is staggering. The pictures do not do it justice! It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed in my life. The house has a patio and a side yard that look like a movie set. We would sip our coffee and watch the dolfins cruise by in the mornings and sip our wine and watch the sun set in the evenings. I can't imagine staying here and not falling in love with this house. The applebaums were incredibly hospitable and provided everything we needed and more. The amenities in the house were perfect. I will definitely be back in the future!

“Peaceful yet near eveything we needed”

Reviewed 24 Nov 2013

We loved appleOasis. Somedays we just stayed at the house, changing our outlook of the stunning ocean by moving around the deck and many delightful gardens. From there we could watch the sailing boats, sufers, row boats...and the incredibel sunset. We had everything we needed - a comforatble bed, barbeque, well equiped kitchen. But when the mood took us we discoverd many excellent restaurents and fatatstic beaches just a short drive away. We had a great vacation - thank you for renting your house to us Richard.

“A little piece of heaven on earth!”

This place has it all, it was fantastic! The house was very accommodating and well-equipped, and had everything you need in the kitchen, and for the ocean - snorkeling gear, boogie boards and noodles. We come to Hawaii for the natural environment, and this beautiful setting is a feast for the eyes and soul. In the first 30 minutes of our arrival, we were greeted by a turtle lounging in the tide pools just below the house. Like most of the Big Island, the coastline is lava rock. But just to the right of this very special spot is "the bowl" - a favorite of locals where you can safely jump into the ocean, and there's great snorkeling right there in front of the house. If you just want to relax - so many options! Our favorite spot to read and nap were the over-sized hammocks hung between the palm trees, while the kids hung out in the lounge chairs on the extensive lawn. The oceanfront lanai offers more lounge chairs, dining table, and even a billiards table! The owners - Richard and Gloria - are the nicest people you could meet, and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed for a dream vacation. There's only one problem with this place - it is so relaxing, you may never want to leave to see the rest of the island. But you must - because there's so much to do on the fabulously diverse Big Island. We will definitely be back.

We have stayed at the apple Oasis several times now over the past 5 years, and keep coming back over and over. The house is situated in an amazing location - big wide oceanfront - relax in the hammocks, on the lawn, or on the lanai, watch the turtles and dolphins and brightly colored fish surfing the waves, wade in the natural tidepools, or jump in the water! Kahaluu beachpark is a short stroll away with great snorkeling, surfing lessons, and paddleboards. A wonderful place to stay!

“best time in hawaii”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2012

After being in Hawaii 12 out of the last 14 years, we found the "Apple Oasis" a dream place. The outdoor shower, the continuous deck with the ocean at your feet, close proximity to everything, the privacy etc,etc., really made it for us.

“Oceanfront Shangri-La”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2012

Stayed at the apple Oasis last winter with 1 year old daughter, wife, and her parents. This house was a perfect alternative to a resort or hotel. We were able to brew local coffee/cook local fish in the kitchen, play pool on the porch, and jump into the snorkeling area from the lava rock "backyard." It is a 5 minute walk to a chill surf beach and turtle viewing bay. There are 2 farmers markets in walking distance, and it is a quick drive to Kona. Maybe the most relaxing vacation situation of my life. We will be back this winter. Thanks Richard!

“Many Happy Returns”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2012

Of all the islands of Hawaii, the Big Island is by far our favorite. Over the years we have stayed in ocean front houses and condos up and down alii Drive, but since finding the apple Oasis four years ago we haven't looked any farther. The spacious lanai and the fabulous lawn to the side give a very open, yet private, feel. The hammocks swinging beneath the palms are a great reading/napping spot, and the house is well appointed. The best snorkling beach on the Big Island is a five minute walk (you can see it from the lanai, along with the surfers), but if you are even slightly adventuresome there's an easy entry/exit at the "Bowl" 30 yards from the front door and fantastic snorkling all along the shoreline. We have found apple Oasis to be both child and handicapped friendly. Our grandchildren as young as 18 months had a ball -- there's a neat tidal wading area near the base of the retaining wall -- and the house is definitely wheelchair accessable. The owner, Richard, is very responsive if there is an issue (we've only had one -- propane for the huge grill), and makes sure all the flora are well tended.
