                    My husband and I stayed at Kona Palm Resort with our young son and dog for about 6 weeks while we were house-hunting on the Big Island. We couldn't have asked for a better set-up-- it felt just like home! The grounds were beautiful! Most of the property was nicely shaded with palm trees and lush vegetation but there was also plenty of open space for our pup (and son) to run around! The cooler temperature at that elevation provided a much-appreciated break from the heat after beach days in the sun. The property was very clean and very well-appointed. The owners, Melissa and Adam, have clearly put a lot of thought into exactly what visitors will want and use when staying at their property. The kitchen was fully-stocked-- all we needed to buy was groceries! They provided all of the essentials and a few bonuses like a pretty extensive library, iPod dock, and state-of-the-art TV and sound system. They also provide a ton of beach goodies including huge beach towels, beach chairs, an umbrella, and cooler. Furthermore, they were a wealth of knowledge anytime we had questions about what to do or where to get the best food in town. They were just so helpful and accommodating! As it turned out, we ended up having a health emergency in the family while we were visiting and had to leave the Island to tend to our family. Melissa and Adam were overwhelmingly supportive and just plain decent about letting us extend our visit and store some of our things at their property. They really went above and beyond for us and that speaks a lot. Now that we have moved to the Big Island, we realize that the professionalism we encountered with Melissa and Adam is really hard to find on the Island. They really set the bar high!

                    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Kona Palm Retreat. It was exactly as described (well, the bedspreads in the 2nd bedroom were no longer pink, to my daughter's dismay), well stocked, restful, conveniently located, and private. Melissa was great in answering any questions we had. Bali the cat was a very welcome companion. We especially loved the abundance of beach & snorkel gear (including coolers) that made it so very easy to introduce our daughter to snorkeling & boogie boarding & to plan day trips around the island. Even extra water bottles available so we could have tons of water for those long days on the beach or to the volcanos. And relaxing in the hammock or the hot tub after a long day of playing? Priceless.

                    Kona Palm Retreat is simply amazing. I was so excited after booking this place I thought there was no way the place could live up to my expectations. Upon arrival I quickly realized this home easily surpassed my high expectations. The property is 100% as advertised. Adam and Fisher met us upon arrival and instantly made us feel welcome to their home. The home is completely surrounded by lush vegetation and masterfully designed landscaping. Kudos to Melissa and Adam for their attention to every detail. The interior was clean, spacious and comfortable. Every amenity we could think of was available. The Internet is fast and there are endless entertainment options great for winding down after a day exploring the island. We will certainly stay at the Kona Palm Retreat during our next trip to the big island. Do yourself a favour and skip the hotels and mega resorts. You will not find better luxury or comfort for this price.

                    Your place is amazing the lush vegetation is a Tropical Paradise! You thought of everything, Beach gear, cooler, towels, bodyboards. and kitchen supplies. We were impressed that you replaced the coffee maker the very next day after we asked. We would certainly come back here and will tell our friends all about your place. We wished we could have talked with you more, but were busy enjoying your beautiful island! Thanks for your Hospitality!

                    Thank you for sharing such an amazing place with our family! The yard is really beautiful and the kids really enjoyed the hammocks.(and of course, playing with Fisher!) We couldn't have asked for a better place! It was really great to have someplace to "come home" to after a long day of exploring the island!

                    We certainly enjoyed our stay at your Retreat! This is such an attractive setting with the lush vegetation and flowers. Its great to wake up to the chatter of a wide variety of birds and the sun streaming into the bedroom. The rental is clean, very tastefully decorated and is supplied with all that is needed;all kitchen equipment, including nice dishes, a very comfortable bed, water sports gear and complete entertainment center. Melissa and Adam were very helpful with local information and were very respectful of our privacy. We couldn't have asked for anything more! Perfect! Thank You!!!!

                    Nice and Laid back! Enjoyed just sitting out on the Lanai reading and relaxing. Very nice to have security and quietness. Enjoyed the loaner cat "Bali", he spent lots of time entertaining and visiting. Fisher is so DAWG like, full of energy, fun and love. Hope to be able to return next year, it will be our 12th trip to the Big Island and Brew Festival! Mahalo for the hospitality!

                    Thank you for letting us stay in your great, great place! The gardens are really pretty and the Mangoes are the nicest we have ever had. Fisher is really fun to play with and a clever football player! The gecko in the house is cool and so are the ones outside. Nice to be woken up by the sound of birds in the morning. Nice way to spend your holiday after a year away. PS, we couldn't fit Fisher in our bags!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: We consider ourselves among the luckiest of people to call Hawaii home. Adam has lived in Kailua-Kona for 20 years, escaping the cold winter of Minnesota; he manages a private estate on the Kohala coast. Melissa moved to the island 5 years ago as a corporate refugee and enjoys managing the family's vacation rentals. We met at a function for a local charity and have been together ever since! Our family includes our cat Bali and our Labrador Retriever Fisher, who happily greets all our guests and loves to play with them in the yard whenever he is invited.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Paniolo Country Estates:
                  Adam purchased this home years ago because he loved the area so much. He has spent many hours improving what was once barren rock into a showplace yard that reflects the beauty of Hawaii. We appreciate the quiet neighborhood, but we are also glad to be located close to town and all our favorite beaches. Because we are located at a good elevation (900 feet), we enjoy warm days and cool nights--we sleep well!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  In addition to enjoying our beautiful yard, we love the quiet days and evenings. There are no homes in sight of our house though there are neighbors nearby, so we feel as if we have our own little slice of heaven. We are visited by all kinds of birds, including turkeys, pheasants, wild parrots and migratory species from many places; occasionally we are honored with a visit from an i'o, the Hawaiian hawk. Of course Fisher and Bali keep us company and help us make our guests feel welcome.
