Recent Ka'u District reviews

  • Enjoyable cottage, but can be rustic.

    "This is a unique house. There are a lot of pluses, but also a few rough edges. I want to give a straight forward review to make sure future renters have clear expectations. First of all, the house is very remotely located. We found the solitude to be quite enjoyable. It is about 30-45 minutes away from the Volcanos National Park. There nearest small town, Pahala, is about 5-7 minute drive. The town has limited services. It's a very relaxing and very quiet area. However, because of the remote location, there will be little to no cell phone service. The owner provides internet wi-fi. The area tends to get light rain. The elevation of the area is 2000+ feet, so the days in mid-January were very nice and could get a little hot. Because of the elevation, the nights can get very crisp, around 50-60 degrees. The house has an "open air" floor plan, so it does not have central air or heat and is not well insulated, so bring some warm clothes…it will be chilly! Because of the lack of insulation, we found a lot of spiders throughout the house. Keep in mind there is only one small bathroom for all five bedrooms and the only shower is the outdoor shower. The outdoor shower has a romantic flair to it, but by the end of our stay, we were longing for a traditional bathroom. The grounds are very beautiful and peaceful, only one or two cars passed the house during our 4-day stay. We did not meet the owner, but she was congenial over the phone. As another reviewer mentioned, we also had a late night trespasser that left us wondering who could have visited during the middle of the night. With that said, the house has some very charming and old-fashioned traits about it and wouldn't dissuade future renters from staying, just keep in mind it is a bit rustic."

  • Home away from home

    "This is a beautiful private home with all of the creature comforts. Well stocked kitchen is great for family gathering around while you prepare food. Outdoor pool area has a spectacular tranquil view, nicely landscaped with an outdoor BBQ. Four poster beds and beautiful bathrooms, flat screen televisions in almost every room. Nice to have a dishwasher and washer/dryer on the premises. Property manager Liz is located nearby and is wonderful. About equal distance from Kona or Hilo (about an hour and a half), so be sure to do your food shopping before. This is definitely not your run of the mill vacation rental. I highly recommend it !!!!"

  • Great location.

    "Lovely condo, excellent location for a few days as a base of operations to explore the south end of the big island. 25 miles from South Point and green sand beaches, 25 miles from Volcanoes national park and right on Punalu'u black sand beach. Beautiful views off the lanai of the golf course and the ocean. Breakfast on the lanai with visits by brightly colored tropical birds each morning, great way to start your day. You can't beat this for the price. The only negative would be the pest control, the giant spider in the kitchen when we arrived and a little brown gecko (we named him Edgar) who came to watch TV with us each night in the living room. They did come and spray the day we were leaving so hopefully that took care of the spider, but hey, it's the tropics you've got to expect SOME houseguests."

  • Good place to crash after exploring the southern side of the Big Island.

    "Title says it all. There are two cabins behind the Hana Hou Restaurant in Naalehu, which are great places to crash after snorkeling, Punalu'u black sand beach, and Volcano National Park. Breakfast is quite tasty at Hana Hou so plan accordingly."
