Vacation Rentals By Owner (VRBO) on the Big Island of Hawaii
As it turned out, we had wonderful friends who were renting just such a home on the ocean, and they kindly invited us to spend some time with them.
Bob & Karen Schroeder, owners of Mayberry Homes in Lansing, Michigan, annually make a 6-8 week pilgrimage to the Big Island of Hawaii. We have watched them, as they have essentially become annual residents of the island, transition from the island’s world class resorts to the privacy of a vacation home rental.
As Karen explained, “when you make a prolonged stay on the Big Island of Hawaii, you will find yourself longing for the privacy of a personal residence, and a vacation home rental through Vacation Rental by Owner (VRBO) just makes perfect sense”.
During our stay with Bob & Karen, we enjoyed taking trips to the Waimea farmers market to bring back lots of goodies to cook in the kitchen. We also enjoyed watching the whales breaching off the deck, spinner dolphins playing in the bay, amazing starlit nights, and a good bottle of wine as we watched the sun set on the horizon.
