Honaunau house description

Our clean and spacious, 1800-square-foot, three bedroom, two-bath home, is located in beautiful and tropical Kona Paradise/Captain Cook on the Big Island of Hawaii, just away from the tourist areas. The master loft is furnished with a queen bed, and en suite bathroom, and has the versatility of being able to be completely screened off with privacy drapes, or leave them open and awaken to the beautiful Pacific ocean through the floor to ceiling windows in the great room below. The other two bedrooms are located on the main floor, and both have queen beds. Feel like you are on top of the world with an amazing 180 degree coastline sunset view. Just a short 2 minute drive down the street is your own private pebble beach which on a busy day you might see a handful of other people. Most days you have the beach to yourself, where you can swim, snorkel, kayak, or scuba dive, or in the winter months, watch the whales.

                            This home did not disappoint. It was well-equipped, clean, and very comfortable. Views from the deck were amazing, as were the sunsets and whale sightings. The location was away from the typical tourist areas, which made it even more special in our book. Pebble Beach is just a mile below the house and Ho'okena Beach is a few miles north and mixes sandy beach, nice surf, and spinner dolphins every day. You can rent a kayak there too. We liked to patronize the local restaurants, shops, coffee plantations, and artisans. A good fruit stand is 2 miles south on the 11 Hwy. Choice Mart in Capn Cook had better food selections and prices than Safeway or Walmart in Kailua-Kona.

                            We had a great trip - our first to The Big island. The place is very nice and spacious. We had 5 in our group and toured the island to return to a relaxing home made meal. Showers, beds, deck and living room are great. We would stay here again if we can in the future. Thanks Rhona.

                            We rented this property for 4 days while visiting Big Island in October. This house is beautiful and situated in a quiet residential area. We appreciated the fact that the kitchen was equipped with quite a few condiments and a coffee grinder :). Snorkeling at the pebble beach just 5 min away turned out to be the best in all of Big Island/Maui. Rhonda was extremely helpful - especially when having to send a few articles that we had left behind back to us. The Coffee Shack (15 min away) has great coconut pie!. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting Big Island. Thank you Rhona!

                            We recently spent 7 nights at your home and it was the best vacation I have ever had. The home was even better then the pictures, it was clean, fully stocked with not only the essentials, but it had plenty of others such as snorkel gear, beach supplies, and brochures of activities around the island. The best part was that it was far from the hustle and bustle of tourists. The home is surrounded by nature and I enjoyed waking up to the sweet sounds of the wind rustling through the trees. We had breakfast every morning and BBQ on the lanai every night which was a huge savings for us. Make sure you stop and buy your food before arriving because the house is a good 25 min drive from the nearest store. We were traveling with 3 children under 7 and the spacious layout was perfect so the kids could run around and relax after a day in the sun. The black pebble beach is a short 2-3 min drive down the hill and its basically your own private beach because each time we went there we were the only people in the area. Over all, I would recommend this stay to anyone who wants to enjoy a real Hawaiian location away from the fabrication of the big resorts such as the Hilton or waikoloa village. The owner provided excellent communication and was very quick to respond up my many many emails. In addition it felt very warm to see that Rhonda had left a small welcoming package with lotions, soaps and their business card. It made the arrival very welcoming. I have recommended this to a few friends and i know one is booking very soon! Thanks Rhonda for allowing my family to stay in your beautiful home. I can not wait to return.

                            We had a great time on the Big Island! It was wonderful to come back to this great house and watch the incredible sunsets from the lanai! The house offered so much - more than we ever needed. We grilled steaks one night and didn't need to worry about purchasing any equipment. Just about anything you'd need for cooking was already on hand. The flowers and fruit trees were beautiful! The geckos were fun to watch and were not afraid of cameras. We'd love to come back and stay longer next time. Thank you Rhona for everything!

                            Coming from Europe, visiting our son who is studying at Hawaii University, we were able to visit this house on Big Island. What you see, is what you get. The pictures are so beautiful, but we saw all the pictures ourselves, including the beautiful sunset over the Pacific Ocean. This house has everything you want, if you consider to be on the Big Island in Hawaii. Although it is almost the place most far away on earth from our home, we hope to come again. The friendly and kind contacts with the owner completes our very beautiful memories of Hawaii and this house. Thank you very much for staying there, mr. and mrs. Bekker! Van Ommen family, The Netherlands.

                            From the moment I looked at the photos I was like this is the place for my family and me to stay at on our first Hawaii vacation! As soon as I requested information Rhona emailed right away and answered all of my questions she was very nice and helpful. When we arrived to the house my family and me where blown away the house and the location are more beautiful then what you see in the photos! The house was very clean and it has everything you will need while you stay there. I will recommended this place to any family, it is a great size of home. The kids enjoyed the movies, games and the boogie boards Rhona ansd Marc have in there beautiful home. We stayed at the house for a week and we had the best time! The view is amazing, I woke up early every morning to enjoy that view!! It is a very quiet and relaxing place for the whole family to stay. We had the best experience and we look forward to staying there again on our next vacation to The Big Island! Thank you Rhona and Marc for renting us your beautiful home!

                            We were visiting the Big Island on our honeymoon and the house was very nice. Rhona, the owner was very very helpful, thank you so much. It ws a bit further from Kona than we thought but the overall value was very nice.

                          About the owner: We met at the ocean almost 40 years ago, and our lifelong dream has been to return again to where it all began. Though this is not the Indian Ocean, one look at our new home was all it took - we were home again! The views are spectacular, and the memories enchanting!
