  • Laid-back Rural Getaway

    "Here's why I will remember our stay at Nikki's house with such fondness. -big, spacious comfortable rooms. 4 adults could work in the kitchen together. We all could do floor exercises in the livingroom together. The bedrooms were large enough to retreat to for quiet time and the beds were great. -the wonderful deck, with it's view over papaya, avocado, hibiscus, macadamia, etc. and a big BBQ to grill our dinners. -the veggie garden and chickens -the friendly cats who greeted us each day but respectfully declined indoor visits. -the outdoor shower******* -in the background, Nikki's cheerful, unassuming, helpful and friendly presence This is not a 4 star hotel. It's a clean, funky, well-used and loved home with a great vibe. It is not convenient to malls, restaurants, resorts(those are an hour away). There are noisy frogs croaking all night long. But those are everywhere. The location gives easy access to south Kona and south island points of interest, but with it's easy to go up the Kona coast and do a Costco run too. Would I go back? In a heartbeat!!!!!!!!"

  • If we could, would rent again this beautiful house

    "Rented this home for a family reunion vacation that included 12 family members plus a 3 month old. The layout was perfect giving the parents & baby a master bedroom on one side of the house while the other members used the guest house bedroom, the other master bedroom & another bedroom which slept 4. Because of the layout, the baby only woke the parents during the night. We could have added at least 2 more guests before someone would have had to sleep on air mattresses which the owner would/could provide. We had plenty of space to move around the common areas (kitchen/livingroom/entertainment area/lanai) which was our main reason for renting this house. Heard no complaints from anyone regarding the availability of hot water for showers with this big group. Loved the scenic views from the lanai at dinner time and also in the morning. Loved the breeze that came through the doors leading out to the Lanai. Plenty of bath towels and etc, & plenty of beach towels for everyone to use during our stay. The high quality kitchen supplies (smaller appliances/plates/dishes/silverware and etc) were plentiful so that we would have only had to run the dishwasher twice a day but the dishwasher had to be used in shifts to handled the amount of dishes used by the group. We had a little issue with the food disposal (our fault) & the safe (not our fault). Both times the property manager responded quickly & fixed the issue. He was very cordial & helpful giving tips of good places to eat, little known scenic by-passes & excursions. The helpful "tip packet" given by the home owner was also very valuable. Homeowner was prompt & easy to deal with. Location was excellent. We felt the location was great for getting to all the areas on the Kona side of the island and it also allowed us to drive a doable 1 1/2 hours to the Volcano National Park on the Hilo side. The parking area by the garages was roomy enough to hold 3 rental vehicles (2 midsize and an extended van) plus a motorcycle. I most warn people, the first time going up and down the driveway was a little scary. It's a great place for walking for exercise!! If I have to say something negative - the dogs next door barked a little - never during the night & never for extended periods of time. Just interrupted the peace & quiet now & then. We learned after the 2nd occurrence that after showing in the guest house, make sure to keep the bathroom door closed or the steam will set of the smoke detector."

  • Great month

    "We just returned from a month at this beautiful house. It was perfect for us and our disabled daughter. The beach at the bottom was difficult for her but that is not the home owners problem. When we needed something they were there with a phone call or maintenance man. Loved sitting on the balcony watching whales and spinner Dolphins. The papayas on the tree were great and I loved looking after all the plants, inside and out. The area is quiet and very close to many activities. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We are already talking about going back. A rental care is a must!"
