    "Overall we had a wonderful stay in this house. Our vacation was a bit over shadowed by the hurricane's this past summer. The owner had a care taker on island who was very helpful in getting us prepared for the [what turned out to be a non-event] and sharing evacuation details with us. That being said this house might not be for everyone…I will break down the pros/cons. Pros.. --Location was perfect. Short easy drive to town, right on the ocean with a swimmable beach less than 5 minutes walk away. --It easily accommodated our party of 8. --We had beautiful ocean views and could watch the sea turtles right in front of our house. --Kitchen was adequately equipped. --Lots of outside furniture. --Owner was very responsive and easy to work with. --Price was incredible for what you got and the location. Cons… --Windows were showing wear and tear from all the sea salt [some couldn't really be opened/closed] --The worst part was only having AC in bedroom and not one in the common living area. The hurricane made it hotter and muggier than normal, but we had to close the windows every time we left so it got pretty hot. Although all the rooms had fans and it did cool of some at night it was uncomfortable, particular in the separate mother-in-laws bonus room. In all fairness we knew the place didn't have AC throughout, but I thought the trade winds would do a better job of cooling the place down. --There was a small mix-up regarding having the place ready for our check-in. The owner quickly remedied this and refunded us the first night because of this delay."

  • Just like home....maybe a better

    "The stay here was absolutely fabulous. Nice 2 story house a 15 minute walk from anything in downtown Kona-Kailua area. 10 minute walk to the beach and shops, 15 minutes to the Kona Brewing Company. House feels like home and the amenities were great. The neighborhood was very quiet. The property is well taken care of and feels like you're staying in someones home. Nice furniture, beds, marble countertops, plenty of hot water, amazing lanais and plenty of room to stretch out if you have a large group. The house even has a detached suit that includes a full bath, tv, and fridge, to put those in your party that you might want to distance during your stay. Direct tv, fast internet service, washer and dryer, full kitchen and plenty of off-street parking. We had the privilege to stay while the owner was in town and even met the property manager by chance. Both individuals were very kind, courteous and accommodating. This will be at the top of my list when we come back and stay and I would recommend anyone stay here."

    "This home is a wonderful place to stay, spacious, homey and close to the most wonderful snorkeling with a wonderful array of fish, also perfect for beginner snorkelers. The grandkids loved playing in the pool while we relaxed in the wonderful secluded yard when we were all to tired to go any more. Owner and support staff were awesome answering any questions we had. Would recommend it to anyone."

  • Wonderful Cottage on the Water!

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This place is amazing! Accordion doors that open up to the ocean in both the family room (to the deck) and the bedroom. We left the accordion doors open every night to feel the cool ocean breeze and hear that beautiful sound put us to sleep and wake us up every morning! The outside deck area has a hammock, lawn chairs, and a fire pit, all strategically placed to see the most amazing sunset. We made it a point to be there every evening to watch the sun slowly fade into the horizon. The kitchen is perfectly sized for two and has all the necessary pieces to cook great meals while there. And the place, while in plain view to the surfers from the ocean, is very private and fenced off from Ali'i drive. Wonderful place. Loved every moment of staying there. Perfect for a couple looking to get away! Finally, the management company was very helpful in answering questions before booking, providing the needed info to get into the place, and even in following up after we arrived to make sure everything was okay. Amazing experience for us for the 7 days we spent in Kona!"
