Recent Private Homes reviews

  • Dolphins Galore

    "We spent 4 glorious weeks at this home and enjoyed it immensely. The sheer numbers of dolphin and whale sightings from the front porch was mind blowing. The owner was very accommodating as was his housekeeper. The surf was high most days, so the waves were crashing a lot of the time so some might find it noisy. This also made it difficult to enter the water at the house. The yard is rough and difficult to walk in for anyone with mobility issues. But it is a great location for a great holiday. Easy access to public transportation in case your rental is not available!! Not a good choice for people with disabilities but otherwise a great choice. Aloha."

  • We'll be BACK!

    "This was our first trip to the Big Island. We loved our stay at the Hula Hut. We hit a real muggy/rainy period and we were comfortable at the home. The private pool is nice but we were so busy we didn't have much time to enjoy it. It is centrally located to everything we wanted to do. We couldn't do everything as the island is so big, so we'll be back. Everything and anything we needed was available at the home. Loved it!"

  • Truly Wonderful

    "I spent my childhood in Kona. our family could not have experienced a better home on the island. The home speaks for itself, the pleasant surprise was in how fabulous the home manager was. From preparations for our visit throughout the entire stay she was extremely helpful and responsive. Truly exceeded our expectations!"

  • Family gathering

    "We were a family of 12, ages 5-67. This was a wonderful base to start out each day and end each night. We were very happy with the rooms, the location, the views,and of course the owner who was very helpful. There is enough space so if you wanted you could spread out and enjoy some quiet time, but you could also all hang out together..especially on the wonderful lanai. Everything in Kona is close, 20 min to Costco, Safeway, Walmart and of course some nice snorkelling spots. The following isn't complaints, just things you should be aware of; the pools are not heated, but the kiddie pool was warmer so thats where the kids spent most of their time. This may be different in the summer time. The roosters referred to in other reviews are noisy and they start in the middle of the night marking their territory by crowing. Bring ear plugs or just wait a couple nights and you will get used to it,mostly. There are ample kitchen supplies and condiments and the owner has extras that get left behind, like our sriracha sauce. I'd also recommend Google street view the drive from the airport as it is fun and twisty, respect the speed limits. It cools down nicely at night so no a/c is not a problem. We had a wonderful vacation in part because of this wonderful property and owner, and her cute "little" dog. Aloha and mahalo."
