Best holiday in a long, long time
"We had an absolutely incredible time at the Kona Dolphin house. The house is in perfect condition, very spacious, with amazing views over the coastline from a stunning deck. There was a nice detached apartment above the garage that was perfect for us with our little baby, to have a little bit of space, while the rest of the extended family stayed in the main house. The location was perfect -- only 15 minutes down to perhaps the best snorkeling in Hawaii -- not to mention 5 mins to the grocery store and a good base from which to visit the volcano or various spots on the west coast on day trips. The gardener gave us a tour of the amazing garden and gave us fresh pineapple, mango, and coconuts. The owner also provided a list of incredibly helpful local recommendations. The place was spotless and had everything we needed. We can't say enough good things about it! Everyone came home relaxed, rejuvenated and happy."

"My husband and I stayed at Mik'a and Lisa's home this past spring. The house is exactly as it looks in the pictures including the vase on the window. We had to rent a Jeep wrangler to navigate the spiraling steep road to the house - It was fun driving up and down the hill.
This house certainly feels like home - it was very quiet, peaceful and away from the tourists . After a day of exploring the island we looked forward to coming home and watching the sunset with a glass of wine.
We are looking forward to our next trip to the big island and this house would be our first choice."

"Peace of Heaven was all that you would dream of for a trip of a lifetime! We could of stayed at a big fancy hotel with just one bedroom for the same price but instead we were able to stay in this gorgeously custom decorated 5 bedroom home right next to the beach. We are big time into snorkeling and were never disappointed by the coral and many varieties of colorful fish and the two good sized octopus that seemed to be the loving couple. Two-Step at the City of Refuge is not too far away and I was able to swim with dolphins, the babies were so cute!! Deanna, the owner, was always very accommodating. We would never hesitate highly recommending this dreamlike place to anyone!"

"What a wonderful place to stay! This house is out of the way from the busy resort area, and perfect for travelling. Everything on the Big Island is a drive, but this location made it all bearable. The house itself is clean, well stocked, homey, filled with artwork from Ron and handmade pillows from Michele. The owners really care about this property and were responsive to every request before, during, and after our stay! The view from this house is fantastic, from sunrise to sunset. A bonus was definitely their stock of beach materials, snorkeling masks, shoes, etc, as well as the discounts for excursions that have been pre-negotiated for guests of Kona Leilani. Really made us feel at home. We loved this neighborhood and found ourselves calling it "home" during our stay, instead of "the condo" which we had on other islands. Traveled with my husband and 3 kids. Perfect balance of feeling comfortable and feeling like we were on vacation. Loved it!"
