                            Property was great inside and out. We enjoyed outings during some days but spent most afternoons and evenings enjoying the hot tub and cooking dinner on the grill. This is a great location for traveling to both Kona and to Volcanos National Park. We enjoyed driving down to the black sand beach at the bottom of the subdivision and whale watching from our lanai. The property manager and the owners who were on island while we were there, were friendly and helpful. Our deposit was returned very promptly.

                            My wife and I have stayed in many vacation rental by owner homes over the years and this home has to one of the best. The pictures and description were right on and Tina was very easy to deal with, we had a minor issue with a circuit breaker and called Mealani (the island contact person)and she resolved it quickly. In previous reviews people complained about the hot tub, we used it daily and had no issues. We found the home to be very centrally located for most things to see and do on the island and honestly I think the highlight of our vacation was just staying at the house and relaxing , most of our meals were at the house so we really enjoyed the kitchen and all of its amenities and the perfect way to end each day was star gazing from the hot tub . One recommendation would be if you are out on the deck at night to bring mosquito repellant and use it because by the time you realize that you have been bitten they will have gotten you multiple times.All in all a great place to stay and I would recommend it to everyone.

                            My family of 5 and my folks came to kona for our first time... Gorgeous home with all the amenities anyone would need for home and for beach days. The owner, Tina was easy to contact and communicate with at anytime. Loved the bathrooms in every bedroom, spacious, beautiful home with lanai and furniture inside and out. Mosquitoes loved my husband, so spray and itch cream a must! Would come back tomorrow... Only thing stopping a solid 5 star rating, is the hot tub was out of commission. Mahalo, Tina.

                            Walking into the house, we were first impressed with the tastefully decorated living area, and soon realized the same personal touch was captured throughout. After a quick tour of the house we were pleased with both the size and layout of the rooms. The bedrooms were nice sized and the beds were quite comfortable. The private baths allowed us to get ready for the day ahead with no water pressure problems as mentioned by a previous poster. We found the living areas to be quite roomy and well appointed. While the living area and master bedroom do have flat screen televisions with cable service, they were turned off for the great majority of our stay. The kitchen had everything we needed to meet our cooking needs, with an assortment of pots and pans, bowls, dishes, utensils and even a selection of herbs and spices. The gas grill on the lanai provided a perfect option for preparing evening meals, with utensils for grilling located in the drawer below and to the right of the sink. The lanai contained a bistro table with four chairs, and a screened seating area containing two cushioned chairs and a couch. We spent each morning sitting in the screened room, sipping fresh Kona coffee, enjoying the sounds of waves crashing on the distant rocks, as the world around us came to life. During the evenings, the covered seating area provided shelter from the mosquitoes (no roaches spotted during our stay), while at the same time allowing us to watch the gecko’s scramble along the siding. Keep in mind, you are going to a tropical island, the island does have bugs of all kinds, and a little bug spray along with citronella candles took care of the little pests just fine. We didn’t use the hottub, choosing instead to spend our time exploring the many different beach options around the entire island. At the back of the house, the tangerine tree was loaded with very tasty ripe fruit, and the avocado trees were beginning to bear fruit. Also, the noni bush at the bottom of the driveway is loaded with geckos in the mornings and butterflies during the day. Needless to say, we were quite sad when it was time to pack up and head back to reality. We can’t wait to return to Hale Kumu Kai again next year!

                            As previous reviewers have stated, the photos DO NOT do this house justice! This is a beautifully decorated home, with an expansive deck overlooking blue water. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and ready for 6 adults to cook meals and mix beverages :) The bedrooms, baths and the rest of the house were well appointed and comfortable. We had no issues with the showers, water pressure or the hot tub, everything was PERFECT! We will be back someday. Loved, loved, loved this place! Thanks Tina for a great home base to enjoy our time in Paradise :)

                            Our family loved the house and especially the view off the porches and decks! The house was a great size and felt real comfortable for a full family. It was decorated beautifully and fully furnished with everything you would need to live in for the long vacations I.e. full kitchen, washer dryer, and BBQ Grill!!! The area around the house is beautiful as well. A great place to retreat and get away from the mainland city life!!!!

                            Was very excited to stay at this place, but soon had that bubble popped when we arrived. The first night we couldn't take showers as the filters hadn't been replaced so there was very little water pressure. Called about it and they came the next day to replace it. Then we go to use the hot tub since this was one of the reasons we picked this place and it really didn't work. The maintenance was called on it, but it only got worse and only got to use it for two days out of the 7 we stayed. If you don't mind massive amounts of mosquitoes or cockroaches then you won't mind staying here. Cockroaches where all over the inside of the house, plus the ants in the kitchen. Then to top things off while some of us where sleeping the several smoke detectors went off like they needed a battery replacement. One of them we couldn't even reach with the step ladder. There was also a toilet that was leaking water and a piece needed to be replaced. They want you to conserve water, but the toilet never was fixed while we where there. I don't usually like to be negative, but I feel that these things need to be said. I can over look a few things that might go wrong, but it seemed everyday there was something that happened. The owner wasn't apologetic or had a good response when I mentioned these problems. Even her Hawaii contact that takes care of everything told me to contact her about these issues. We rented this home because it was so nice looking and had great reviews. There are a few pluses. The house was fully stocked and there was lots of great equipment like snorkel gear and boogie boards. They left lots of left over food from the previous guests which was great. The views from the deck are great. Just make note there is no AC and it gets very hot and humid in the house. Even though there where lots of bugs in the house it was clean and had room for everyone. We where disappointed in the way the owner dealt with the many situations that we had and put a damper in our vacation. Also, it takes about 45 minutes to get anywhere. We will not be returning as we save our hard earned money up for great vacations and great customer service, which sadly we didn't get.

                            Owner response: We are extremely sorry to hear the experience at our vacation property was less than expected. We pride ourselves on providing a positive, memorable Hawaiian vacation to all of our guests. Our customer service representative and local caretaker take great delight in being responsive if and when our guests encounter issues or concerns with our property. We also recognize guests experiencing island living for the first time may be somewhat unprepared for nuances they may encounter while occupying private homes as opposed to the larger hotel chains. We are somewhat perplexed by the comments regarding infestation of ants and roaches, as we have NEVER received a similar comment from another guest. Ironically, during discussions with the guests during their visit they were unable to identify specifically where they encountered the roaches. To that end, our customer service representative contacted guests who rented the property prior to and following this guests' departure, and none of those guests experienced the problems contained in this review. As a matter of fact, we routinely receive feedback praising our responsiveness and customer service, amenities and overall condition/upkeep of the property. We regretfully had to perform maintenance on one of the four toilets during the visit, and were pleased to do so without interruption to the guests. Further, our spa maintenance technician was able to return the spa to routine working order after resetting the controls to their original settings, as documented in the operations manual located in the house. During a discussion with our local caretaker the reviewer mentioned receiving a partial refund on a previous vacation, indicating she was hoping to get a similar refund on this home as well. Therefore, based on positive feedback from previous renters, and comments from this reviewer regarding her desire for a refund, we must question the motivation for this unfortunate review.

                            This was a dream vacation rental for me and my wife. We first wanted to be away from busy touristy area, a bit taste of local living, able to see sunset and starry nights, not only we had all those, the house was loaded. Fully equipped kitchen. We had 8 people for a few days, and there were no shortage of anything, you name it, house has it. Cleanliness of all rooms including down to smallest details were at 5 stars. The bonus of the house was seeing Milkyway, Scorpion, Summer Triangle, Big Dipper among millions of other stars. Not only would I recommend this house to friends, I would vacation in this house all over again. J S Bar

                            I cant even begin to explain how beautiful and perfect this home and location was for our first trip to Hawaii. The house was beautiful and perfectly located. The view of the sunsets and sunrises are remarkable. The town of Captain Cook and surrounding areas had so much to offer. The food and ice cream shops had great food and great service. Everyone is so pleasant and welcoming. There were many beaches to explore with the provided snorkel gear. I couldnt have asked for a better place to stay. Thank you again for the wonderful experience!!

                            Loved the sunsets from Hale Kumu Kai and star gazing from the hot tub at night. And the ocean breezes that gentley teased the plumeria fragrances from the bushes throughout the neighbourhood. The house was well appointed for jaunts to the beaches, (coolers, boogie boards, towels). Comfortable and spacious and a large deck that came with geckos! We were fortunate to have a couple of lovely swimming days at Pebble Beach. Great area for exploring south and east of the Big Island. Kona Paridise is located quite south of Ali Drive, but we thoroughly enjoyed the quiet residential area. The drive down to the house is steep, so be careful at night. A bit of a drive to the popular beaches north, but such lovely scenery both ways and lots of sites to visit close by - Captain Cook, Hookena, Two Step etc. So much to see and we did it all! Two Step was a highlight for snorkelling, especially the third time after hiking the coast just to the north to view numerous arches. After our return we were treated to Spinner Dolphins during our snorkel! Must snorkel at Captain Cook and also the old Kona airport and the area just north of the Fairmont Orchid. The Hilo Farmer's Market is the best on the island. The KTA grocery store just outside of Hilo is a fabulous grocery store that has a great bakery, fresh seafood, and local vegetables and fruit. And the prices are great. Annie's Burgers and the Coffee Shack have great food. Try the chocolate chip macadamia cookies at the Coffee Shack! Visit the local coffee & macadamia nut farms, and the local fruit & vegetable stands. The locals were always friendly and extremely helpful. Love, love this island. And I am not even going to mention my favourite swimming beaches because I don't want to get the word out. But of course the word is out, because every tourist you see is clutching a copy of "The Big Island Revealed". The house came with 2 copies! Swam with Mantas, turtles, and dolphins, perfect weather, warm waters, and beautiful scenery. Close to perfect! Thanks Tina for a great spot to explore from. Jelena & Craig
