"Absolutely our best vacation ever. The condo is absolutely gorgeous, the grounds are immaculate and the weather was warm and sunny everyday-one couldn't ask for anything better than that! Patti was so personable when we spoke on the phone and made our stay effortless. Patti and Don have truly put alot of thought into decorating the condo, and it shows in every detail of the decor.
It was such a treat, after a day of exploring the amazing island, to return to the 'Honu', sit at the lanai, read a book as the sun goes down, while BBQ'ing right on the lanai.
We are planning next year, and we will look no further than 'The Honu'.
Even loosong my eyeglasses the last day didn't put a damper on the trip, I wanted new frames anyways!!
Thanks again Patti and Don for sharing 'The Honu'."

Comfortable place. Great location. Excellent value.
"My husband and I stayed here a week and found it very comfortable and convenient. Especially positive was the location, both in terms of relative to the places we wanted to go on the island (dry side,NOT the resorts/shopping,Kona area) and the general setting (quiet, simple.) It is not the quaint "old" Hawaii bungalow, but the trade-off was right for us; this was functional and pleasant too. It was clean and well equipped; David was favorable about a few suggestions we made for making it a bit better for people like us who like to fix every meal at home. There is an exceptional local property manager who seems very responsive the the inevitable things that seem to arise (i.e., leaky faucet, broken coffee maker carafe.) A very good value!"

"What a great way for a getaway to the Big Island for our family of 6. This well located condo is close to so many fun things to do. Beach, hike, snorkeling, golf--we were busy every day. The house had everything we needed for our excursions. The families we were travelling with were jealous of our beach umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards that we were supplied with. Julie was fantastic too. Great recommendations for everything and super responsive. Can't recommend this place enough!"

"This is an absolutely beautiful home, located in a gated community on the side of an extinct volcano with terrific views of the ocean.
The house is quite private with a distinctive Tuscan feel to it. Built around a center courtyard, it is well-furnished with a quiet and air-conditioned bedroom wing and comfortable public rooms. The kitchen is well equipped and large.
The lanai, where we spent most of our time, is superb. The covered section is reminiscent of an Italian villa, the pool is large and heated and the grounds are well maintained. The lanai is perfect for whale-watching in the morning with that second cup of coffee, or enjoying the sunsets with a gin and tonic while grilling a fresh caught opakapaka - absolute heaven!
The owners - Sue and Dave - are great to work with and are very intent that your visit is memorable.
There are simply not enough superlatives to describe this house. What better recommendation than to say we had reserved it for next year before we departed this
