Great property, but may not work everyone (see below)
"My girlfriend and I just spent a week at Sandra and Ken's property and it was wonderful. The pictures depict exactly what the property is like, and the rooms were clean, spacious, and comfortable. The outdoor kitchen was wonderful and the pool and hot-tub were perfect to the point where we spent pretty much every evening relaxing in them. Enjoying a nice glass of wine while relaxing under the stars was definitely some of the high-lights of our trip.
The one caveat that I would give is that you should understand what you are renting: the bottom half of someone's home. Now everything was completely separate and very private. If we approached them Sandra and Ken were happy to provide information about the island to us, but other than that they left us strictly alone. Some people might have an issue with people living and working right above you, but if you can step out of the traditional hotel model this is the place for you."

"This was a great location to kick off our trip around the island. Jackie and Ken are wonderful and really welcomed us into there home. Everything was immaculate, well signed and easy to find. We really enjoyed our 5 minute walks to the beach and shops. Forth of July was really special!"

"If I could give this place more than 5 stars I would. Myself and my sister stayed here for 3 nights and found the 2 bedroom, huge house so comfortable. It has a great, well equipped large kitchen with plenty of the essential supplies such as herbs, spices, sugar, etc. Also a large living and dining area. The fabulous lanai wraps around all three sides of the property with great views and lovely outdoor seating for relaxing in the evening, with the resident geckos keeping all the bugs at bay.
Great location just a short drive from Kailua-Kona town - and really you can explore the whole island from here. We moved on to Hilo after here but wished we had stayed in Kona as we could have accessed everything from there (in fact we even came back to Kona from Hilo to take an air tour and it was an easy drive across the saddle road - less than 2 hours on a clear morning).
Rory is the perfect host. Great communication and information before we arrived. Perfect level of interaction while we were there. He gave some great tips and recommendations - had even just replaced his "Big Island Revealed" guide book which his last guests had accidentally left with - with additional annotations of personal recommendations (We highly recommend Splasher's for dinner & Mojitos!). Rory allowed us our privacy also but made it very clear that he was contactable for advice or any help needed. He even offered us a late check-out as he didn't have guests arriving that day.
All in all, we loved this place, would highly recommend it and Big Island, and would return in a heartbeat if we ever get the opportunity."
