  • Beautiful Home with view, would expect some 'extras'

    "We had 13 family and friends in the home over the Thanksgiving week. As with the other reviews, there is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, comfortable beds and furnishings and really no reason to leave (except for beaches and experiencing the island). We ate dinner every night as the view from the pool/back deck is fabulous. As it's a home in the hills, the ants found their way into one bathroom and cockroach visitors were found in the kitchen cupboards and dishwasher. Yucky! We sprayed anything that moved and were very clean - no food left out anywhere. Two garbage cans were full when we checked in so we had 1 can for 6 days. We had issues with the spa heater/thermostat which took a 'village' to figure out. The ice maker in the fridge wasn't working and a toilet seat in one bathroom was completely broken off. I called and reported the issues. The Boundless Hawaii agency said we didn't have to be home and they would send maintenance out to fix things. Well things got fixed and a new GoPro was taken from the bedroom with the broken toilet seat. Boundless Hawaii has not offered to compensate or do anything for this loss. "We have reliable contractors", is what I as told. Well apparently not. The contract provisions indicate the renter is liable for theft, which I understand if we left the doors open.....but to have the theft come from the rental company.....after their assurances......not OK. We also had partying 20-somethings on the vacant street below the house. A couple of guys started scaling the garden walls to use the pool one night until we flashed some house/yard lights letting them know the home was occupied. 2 'scouts' on motorbikes came up the hill the next day (a couple times) checking to see if we were still there so they could use the backyard for their Thanksgiving party. "Sorry, rented." Overall, a great experience to be able to have everyone together, comfortable and have a good time. But for the heavy rental $$, I expected a near flawless service experience - which didn't happen."

  • What a View!

    "This condo is in a great location. Quiet away from the touristy area, yet close enough to walk to restaurants, shops and other things to do. Mainland type shopping(Safeway, Target, Walmart etc.) is about 10-15 minutes away by car. The condo was clean, and well appointed, roomy. It is located right off of a lava reef. A sandy beach is just steps away. The views are just perfect. One morning a cruise ship was out in the ocean ready to enjoy the activities of the area. The owners are readily available if any help is needed. The area in front of the condo is public, but there were very few people who walked here. We would definitely stay here again."

  • What a View!!!

    "I stayed here for a month this summer. The weather was more humid than usual so it was great we were right on the water. This condo has the best view of the ocean and the park and the sunsets. Place was clean, interior is beachy, just the right place for a laid back vacation. Everything is walking distance to shop and eat. There is a nice pool, and awesome barbeques. I will plan to be back again. Thank You so much. Sonya was great."

  • Lovely Home, Beautiful View, Great Location - what more could you ask for?

    "We absolutely loved our stay at Bamboo House for so many reasons. We have stayed in a number of VRBOs over the years and this was by far the finest. This is a well thought out custom home with designer touches in every room, from the turtle mosaic entry, to the koa wood floors and kitchen cabinetry, to the bamboo woodwork and glass etching in almost every room, to....I could go on and on (beam ceilings, windows that frame the ocean and garden views, outstanding landscaping, the shower room for two, mosaic of fish and dolphins in the pool to name a few.) There is artistry in the design of this home that is hard to find. The way the house is situated on the lot takes advantage of views and privacy at the same time. The tropical furnishings were lovely as well. This home has everything anyone would need to enjoy a few days, or a few months in paradise. We celebrated our 5th anniversary here and had the house to ourselves. This home would be ideal for two couples as well, as the bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house. This was our first visit to Kona, and we found the location to be ideal - very close to town yet felt far removed. One of the best snorkeling beaches in Hawaii is 5 minutes away. We used the guidebook provided by the owners to find the best beaches and it saved us a lot of time. The neighborhood is gated and it is wonderful for morning and evening strolls with views all around. The home was immaculate, well stocked, and there was nothing lacking. Thank you Gerry and Mary Lou. Great effort was put into designing this home, and the same effort has been extended to make sure your guests have everything they need. There should be a 6 star rating for this home - outstanding!"
