  • just what we were looking for

    "After a few rainy days in the Hilo side, we were looking for a quiet and nice place for some sunshine and it turned out this place was just what we needed - the house was beautifully decorated and the location overlooking the small subdivision and with a gorgeous sunset view made us felt luxurious and relaxed. It's an hour's drive south of the airport so the "quietness and remoteness" was perfect for us. Upon seeing the lanai and bed with mosquito net and the view, the one stallion in our group commented how he can see romance being "kindled" in a place like this! The house is at the end of the street with view of the hillside and it's resident herd of insufferably cute goats. Jogging up and down various steep streets was a nice challenge for me but my wife had to walk them although she did fairly well. The beach was nice but small and the temptation to get into the water was great seeing others playing in the surf. Definitely a place for a romantic get away and R&R. The owners were great, and the cleaning lady was incredibly helpful and understanding when we got into a jam with our rental car on the way out - we accidentally locked the car with the engine running but with her help we still got to the airport with time to spare. Thank you!!"

  • Awesome View and Relaxing

    "My wife and I spent 4 wonderful nights at the Bamboo Bungalow. It was everything as advertised and more. All the beach gear was super...chairs, umbrella, snorkel, fins, cooler..and even home grown bananas if you wanted!! The best part of every day (morning, afternoon, or evening) was just relaxing on the beautiful large porch with a great view of the ocean. Location just super...down the hill from a local grocery store, nearby restaurants, and quick access either to Kona or towards the Volcano. We hope to return and highly recommend this as a place to stay."

  • A Magical Place!

    "We just returned from an amazing vacation at "The Blue Roof". An amazing home, in amazing surroundings this vacation home is a must see!! Hearing for whales in the morning and enjoying the most amazing sunsets at night, this house has something for everyone. A short drive away from the home is Hookena beach. Undoubtly one of the most amazing beach experiences ever. Whether swimming with dolphins, or exploring coral reefs this will be a beach day you will never forget. We highly recommend "The Blue Roof". The Koellhoffer's"

  • Delightful!

    "We loved our stay here! We especially enjoyed the STUNNING gardens, amazing views, fantastic hot-tub, great deck and fun pool. The pictures may not do it justice and my partner and I became obsessed with taking pictures of the great landscaping and beautiful sunsets. The location is near great little villages to explore coffee shops and boutiques. I always thought that I was purely in love with the Puna Coast but having stayed here I am now equally enamoured with the Kona side of the island. We stayed in the lower unit and I'd most recommend this for a romantic escape from the madding crowd. We actually stayed with my mother and her husband and even though privacy wasn't optimal we were all so taken by the unit, it's grounds and ammenities that this proved to be minor. However, my partner and I are keen to return to take full advantage of it as a romantic retreat. The homeowner is fabulous: Professional, warm and friendly. I enthusiastically recommend this delighful home to stay!"
