Wonderful, relaxing home for large family!
"We recently stayed in Kona for the IM, and found the location of this home fantastic as if was not too far to drive into town, but far enough away for a peaceful, relaxing stay!
Our family of 8 (with our 2 older children often visiting for meals) had plenty of space when we were home, many options for quiet spaces or meals, and of course we loved the pool, and watching sunset every night was just beautiful.
The house is exactly as offered from the pictures, and the master bedroom (with renovated bathroom) is fantastic. We cooked many meals in the kitchen, and grilled downstairs often during our 10 day stay, and appreciated that many of the basic kitchen condiments were kept in the pantry!
There was also a day home where the younger kids found the games and jigsaw cupboard, and had a great time, and the pool toys were available (to which we added a few more before we left!!)
I would love to stay there again, especially during a quieter time in Kona, and would have no hesitation in recommending the property."

"First of all, the view was outstanding! We had all kinds of beach gear and kayaks to use...including directions on how to put the kayaks securely on top of the rental car! We were close to snorkeling, coffee and chocolate plantations, good restaurants and downtown Kona browsing. After a day of exploring, it was nice to come back to the privacy of our unit and relax in the refreshing pool. We look forward to returning!"

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was more than happy with the location.
I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The location was great. We were able to walk down to the bay each morning and snorkel. Believe we saw more fish/eel/sea turtles there than anywhere on Kauai or Hilo. The waves at night can sometimes wake you up during your slumber but easy to go right back to bed. They had surfboard, noodles and beach towels helped out. I would def stay in that area again."

"If I could give this home more than five stars I would. This house was paradise! Richard is one of a kind host who literally goes out of his way to make your stay perfect! The view is breathtaking, the outside shower looking at the water was one of our favorite features and waking up every morning to the site of the surfers was just spectacular! I have rented many homes over the years and this by far is the most well stocked, clean, comfortable and relaxing! The house is the perfect location for everything you could need. It was a few minute walk to the beach where we snorkeled and took surfing lessons and only a short drive to the many restaurants in either direction. We absolutely loved this house and will definitely return hopefully very soon! Thank you Richard and Gloria for sharing your amazing home and all you did to make our vacation truly memorable!"
