  • Vacation Renter Family of 4

    "Everything about this spacious condo is wonderful. The accommodations are comfortable and very clean and they had every dish, pot, pan, snorkel and beach towel that we needed. You can have dinner on the deck and watch the beautiful Hawaiian sunsets and then the crashing waves put you right to sleep. The owners do a really nice job with this rental. This was our third time renting this unit and we'll be back. The location is very close to a grocery store, a good Italian resturant and a great snorkeling beach."

  • California to Kailua-Kona

    "We spent 1 totally delightful week in this location. The condo was just wonderful!The location was great as we simply walked each morning to a different place for breakfast with gorgeous views! The condo was ALWAYS cool plus very nice Hawaiian decor. The island is laid-back, but lots to see and do: as in snorkel trip, para-sail, Luau, tour the oldest church in US, see the Palace across the street from the church, drive to the Volcano and have lunch overlooking the crater, drive North to the end of the highway, return and come back down through beautiful cattle ranches including the famous Parker Ranch. Golf galore, but expensive. Shopping centers nearby. Lunch at the Harbor...great beers and lunches! Did we love it...5 stars! Plus the owner couldn't have been nicer."

  • Awesome Place!

    "Incredible house. Beautifully kept. Location could not have been better. we stayed here for our spring break with three little kids and grandparents. Excellent location as we were a minute walk to Manini beach and less than that to kayak rentals. My wife and 10 year old daughter were able to swim with dolphins in the bay, beach combing was great with lots of tide pools nearby. The facilities were excellent at the house with private back yard, outdoor shower to rinse off after ocean swims. we really enjoyed the bbq and patio too and the beds were about as comfortable as they come. The care-taker, Krista was very helpful and available too. An incredible place!"

  • “Better than advertised - Talk about a VIEW!”

    "We followed Susan A. this July. Her review and the others are spot on and I simply reconfirm everything they so eloquently stated. 
We took our 15 year old grandson with for a long overdue special trip. This was our second trip to the Big Island in addition to three trips to Kauai. The Big Island is definitely better suited for a teenager. Being so close to an excellent snorkeling beach was a plus. The ocean was too flat for surfing for my snowboarder grandson, but he made up for it taking underwater pictures of sea life. He even got to see sunsets with the big green flash.
 My wife who used to be a rental and maintenance manager for over 1100 units that included college kids, young and older adults spanning 4 towns made a very telling statement the second day. As we were sitting on the Lanai enjoying a cup of coffee, she asked me, "Can you believe they let strangers stay here?" She went on about the furnishings, art work, stocked kitchen etc. I said that's why we are leaving it better stocked than when we arrived. She still can't believe that I found this gem. At first I had thought about staying in the Waikoloa area, since that’s where we stayed the first time in conjunction with a conference. That location and options just didn't fit in with grandson, so I started searching and bingo.
 If you are searching and find this lovely condo, check the calendar and book it!
 Grandson was the first to spot a mongoose. The wildlife is great with the colorful birds visiting the Lanai and the bright green geckos on the tree next to the front door. 
The must read notebook that John provides has valuable info. Even though he requests that the "Local full time personal Concierge" not call, you'll probably get one. He was easy to put off. That title threw me off a bit as I own a t/s in Sint Maarten I bought in the late 80's and they didn't and still don't use that term to lure people in. There's another booth with friendly folks offering money saving offers near the fine grocery store, KTA, up the hill. To be honest, July can be hot at this location. We endured the humidity that Susan mentioned for a few days, then the tropical storm moved on and it became bearable. Our earlier trips were in February or October and the heat surprised us a bit. Yes, we left before the double storm threat hit the Hilo side. We tracked it from NH and it was sad seeing the pics of places we had visited. The rental process was the easiest one I've ever encountered. Thanks John and Becky"
