  • Wonderful accommodations and hosts!

    "I enjoyed a week stay at Kona View Estate in August 2014 with my wife and two children, ages 12 and 14. The house is lovely, clean, modern, and really had everything we could possibly need during our stay. It is spacious and very relaxing to spend time both inside the house and out by the pool and Lanai. When we weren't traveling around Kona, we enjoyed lounging in the house, where we also made most of our meals in the well stocked and inviting kitchen and outside grill. It was really just a wonderful week on the Big Island! As for our hosts, Randy and Atsuni were warm and gracious while respectful of our privacy. They answered any questions we had, delighted us with some delicious Cappuccino, and made our stay most enjoyable. Atsuni also does Rolfing and Gyrotonic body work in the downstairs gym. My wife worked with her for a separate but reasonable fee and loved the experience. In all, we had a wonderful stay at Kona View Estate and would absolutely come back. It is important to note that the house is in Holualoa so beaches are a drive. Kona View is best for visitors who are looking for a relaxing stay that is close by but away from the busier parts of the island. Coming from the bustle of a big city, we were very happy getting away and enjoyed the relative quiet and the stunning views from our Lanai. We would head over to the Beaches, Volcano, or into downtown Kona but really cherished the serene beauty of this home. Our family certainly enjoyed a restorative and lovely week there. Thanks so much Randy & Atsuni, and hope to see you again!"

  • The best family vacation!

    "Hale Kawika was the perfect home for us on our week's stay on the big island. We had a family of 8 - including grandparents, aunt, uncle, and our 6 month old baby. The property is amazing and we found ourselves sitting on the lanai all day and enjoying the sunrises and sunsets, all the while sipping fresh squeezed lemonade from the juiciest lemon trees found on the grounds. The photos posted are nice, but they don't do this place justice as it's simply an amazing place! We arrived a bit early, and also needed a late checkout due to our flight and the managers were more than accommodating - thank you so much! Pros: - Gorgeous views every day. Huge Lanai to enjoy it. - Peaceful and quiet. - Very clean and everything's in great/new condition. - Huge kitchen that's well stocked. - Master and en suite are huge and amazing. - All the amenities you could need: they had a crib, booster seat, and toys for our baby. Also have pool toys and extra beach gear (umbrella, snorkle gear, etc.) - Fresh fruits around the property - we had fresh Avocados, Passion Fruit, and Lemons everyday. Also found some Papaya and breadfruit! - Heat pool and hot tub (we used it every day!) - Wonderful staff, Lisa and Herb were super responsive. - Short drive to town, not too far away from all the action and shopping. - Great Coffee roasters just down the road. Cons (not that there really any!): - A bit difficult to find the first time, especially at night! (Make sure you have a GPS!) - Rooster doesn't understand the concept of a sleeping baby We will definitely be coming back for our second vacation!!!"

  • So close and yet far enough!

    "The view - spectacular! You are short drive from everything, but look down from the spectacular 2,000-foot ocean view from the cottage window and the hustle and bustle looks 100 miles away. I highly recommend for those who want serenity on their vacation. Sam, the dog treats you like an old friend the minute he meets you. The horses are friendly too. Can't say enough good things about our hosts. I would definitely come back again."

  • Great place to stay

    "Our stay started with detailed driving directions from the airport and it got better from there. It is impossible to describe the view as you walk down the hill to the lower unit of the building and then you realize the view is the same from the sliding doors in the bedroom and the outdoor kitchen. During the day we explored the island but choose to come back for a peaceful dinner overlooking the city rather than eating out. The unit itself is modern and well equipped. It has a large bath and bedroom as well as a comfortable living room with a wet bar. If it is important to you there is a large HD tv in the living room. My only suggestion would be to have a pair of binoculars available. This was our first visit to the island and if we come back this will be our place to stay."
