  • Camp Aloha

    "We had a wonderful relaxing 5 nights at Camp Aloha. The outdoor kitchen was just great to make a meal or just seat and take in the wonderful view and tropical location. Enjoyed a day trip to South Point and spent time in nearby Kona. The Coffee Shack cafe was a great place to stop and enjoy both the coffee and wonderful desserts."

  • Relaxing in the Hawaiian Countryside

    "Our first trip to the island of Hawaii was made truly enjoyable by our week long stay at the Oasis in Kona. The house provided lots of space for our family which consisted of four adults, a toddler and a month old infant. The house’s two stories and huge wrap around lanai allow for both privacy and gathering together as a group in a variety of settings with plenty of room to stretch out and relax. Many little extras that you won’t find in a hotel or timeshare have been provided with the house to assist in making your stay a delight. The location is ideal in that it offers a glimpse of Hawaiian countryside living yet within easy driving distance of Kona all that it has to offer. The property which is covered with a huge variety of plants including numerous fruit trees provides for a very private setting. The house is somewhat dated but is clean and comfortable and very quickly makes you feel at home letting you focus on exploring the island and all it has to offer. The location is particularly suited to exploring the area south of Kona (Two Step, coffee plantations, etc.). The hospitality and assistance provided by Kerwin, the caretaker was fantastic. He was there if you needed him but was very respectful of your privacy. Becky, the owner, was very accommodating and helpful making the rental process easy and painless."

  • Heaven on Earth

    "My husband and I stayed 11 nights in the Jungle Cottage early February 2014. All that really needs to be said is: it is a little piece of paradise! We stayed in a couple of other hotel/B&B as well during our stay on the Big Island, and none of them, nor other places we looked into staying at, remotely compared to the accommodation at Bwana Bob. The cottages there are surrounded by lush vegetation and have a beautiful ocean view; it is extremely peaceful and one feels far away from civilization and lost in the jungle yet Kona is just a few miles away. "Our" Jungle Cottage was so cozy and so romantic, very clean - there could not have been a more perfect place to spend our honeymoon! Upon check-in, I was amazed to find absolutely everything we needed: a kitchen stocked with all the essentials, soaps and shampoos, bath and beach towels, beach mats, folding chairs, snorkeling gear, ice cooler, and yes, even an umbrella! Not to mention a pound of the delicious Bwana Bob coffee, and fresh fruit including the sweetest pineapple! In the cottage there is also a TV, DVDs, videos, magazines, guides, maps - and the list goes on. The highlight of my stay at the Jungle Cottage was being able to pick fruit from the fruit trees in the garden: nothing like starting your day with juice from freshly picked oranges or juicy mangoes and fleshy bananas! Our hosts were absolutely wonderful! They are so friendly and bent over backwards to make our stay as fantastic as possible. We witnessed the coffee roasting process. Well, you haven't lived until you have seen Steve's Roast O Rama and the place where he does it! Fascinating! I could have spent hours in his workshop studying all the machines and robots and gadgets and tackle and apparatuses and equipment! Something to tell your grandchildren about, lol! That coffee roasting process if a must-see, so is Bwana Bob's accommodation! I highly recommend it to anyone spending any time at all on the Big Island! And should I go back to Hawaii, this is definitely where I will want to stay! Thank you Susan and Steve, for sharing your paradise with us!"

  • what a wonderful surprise

    "I’ve enjoyed my stay at your hideaway much more than I expected. I had only planned the trip here to attend a wedding that fell through….. I decided that I hadn’t had a real vacation, with nothing to do and nothing expected of me for longer than I can remember. (if ever???) So I went ahead and came to Hawaii. I scanned the internet for something off the beaten track and your place seemed to fit the bill. At least on paper…. So you can imagine my delight in finding this perfect little nest in paradise when I arrived. I had no idea what I’d need so I threw a ton of stuff in a suitcase and figured I’d buy what ever else I needed when I got there. I could have shown up with the clothes on my back, hopefully a bathing suit underneath and I would have been fine. It’s as if I brought my little house and dropped it down in paradise. The only thing missing were my kitties to sleep with. You made it so easy to find my way around to all the best spots for snorkeling, shopping, sight seeing etc. Instead of spending most of my limited time here, trying to find my way around, my week was spent exploring and enjoying all the wonderful little bits of paradise South Kona has to offer. The little touches on your hideaway, such as the door handle on the screen door, the very comfy bed, the festive accent lighting, all made my stay not only homey and comfortable but special and festive. The perfect combination. Thank you."

Honaunau Travel Tips

Revel in Hawaii's Beauty with Honaunau Condo Rentals

Avid travelers who want to avoid so-called tourist traps on the Kona Coast of Hawaii know that booking vacation accommodations through Honaunau condo rentals is the way to go. Renting a private property through Honaunau vacation homes affords clients full privacy when desired - with all the amenities of home. Instead of wasting money at hotel gift shops, the smart traveler staying at Honaunau condo rentals is able to spend funds on more exciting activities, such as whale watching, deep sea fishing, or hiking among majestic waterfalls.

Savor The Kona Coast from Above

There's no debate that the coast of Kona on the big island of Hawaii provides both locals and visitors a chance to experience a bit of paradise. Explorers can hike through the rain forest, snorkel or scuba dive in clear waters, or traverse miles of immaculate beaches. However, more daring travelers may want to try parasailing. UFO Parasailing in Kailua-Kona allows participants to soar high above the scenic Kona coastline. This company also offers activities such as wake boarding or banana boating for the active enthusiast.

Uncover The Magic of The Big Island

There's so much mystery to behold in your proverbial backyard when you stay at one of Kona Coast vacation rentals. A bit north of Honaunau vacation homes lies the Puakõ Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve. Here, visitors speculate about the origins of ancient Hawaiian rock carvings called petroglyphs. Another mysterious occurrence that constantly astounds locals and tourists alike is the green flash. The green flash appears on clear evenings when the sun is setting. On such an evening, a bright green flash will materialize just as the sun drops below the horizon. One of the best places to view this miracle of nature is at Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historic Park. Be amazed when you visit the Kona Coast.
