When you rent a timeshare or room in someone's home, you sometimes you feel like you’re couch surfing at a stranger’s. Not at Sandra’s Vacation Retreat. From the bed to the furniture to the kitchenette utensils, everything is new and high quality. The studio is attached to the home but has a private entrance and is well enough insulated that you don’t hear owners Sandra and Patrick (who are a delightful, hospitable, helpful couple). Sandra includes many little touches that went above and beyond: spa-quality bath products and towels, a welcome fruit basket, tea and coffee, good stereo system and television. Attached screened lanai has a BBQ, table, chairs and swim gear. Sweet Australian shepherd, Kai, welcomes but doesn't intrude. By the time you read this, Sandra’s spa (also in the main house) should be up and running. Sandra’s is located in a sparsely populated neighborhood a 10 minute walk to the lava cliff at ocean’s edge (sunbathing yes, swimming no), on the east side of the Big Island, half hour from Hilo, about the same distance from Kilauea Volcano with hiking trails, lava tube and great visitor center.
