"Just returned from our 5-night stay at the Plantation Home. I've rented many places through VRBO and this is the first time I've written a review.
The location was perfect - close enough to Kona for some dinners out but far enough away for quiet and relaxation (after an hour out on the lanai with the cool ocean breeze we totally blocked out the mooing of the cows next door). It was also a great location for heading to the volcanoes, bypassing the Kona traffic. There were four of us staying at the home and we all loved it. It was comfortable for 4 adults - 2 bedroom suites on opposite sides of the house and plenty of space without feeling like we overdid it. Not that we needed all of the space on the inside since we spent most of our time on the lanai or in the pool. The views were fantastic and the owners were very helpful.
In case you are wondering, it took us about 20ish minutes to get to Kona (30-45ish minutes to the airport depending on traffic, about an hour and a half to the volcanoes. Greenwell Farms coffee is just down the street, as is Da Poke Shack, both great stops (though if you are hitting up Kona, you have to check out Umeke's - DELICIOUS!). Kealakekua Bay was also super close, but we didn't go down there. We were too busy napping on the lanai. When talking about whether we'd come back to the Big Island (all of us were visiting for the first time) we all responded that we'd come back and book the Plantation Home again. The pictures just don't do this place justice."

"I stayed here for 2 weeks during the month of July 2015 and it was absolutely perfect! The ideal bush bungalow where you're completely craddled by lush and beautiful nature. The vibe and energy of the apartment and area is just so lovely, relaxing and nurturing.
You have a perfect lanai to catch the Big Islands breath taking sunsets and enjoy a nice cup of tea :) I thoroughly enjoyed all the four legged guests we encountered, the Hawaiian geckos are spectacular and very photogenic! Even spotted some Jackson Chameleons right outside the bedroom window on the Frangi Pani Tree!!
This place really is a piece of paradise nestled in nature. I would recommend this to anyone looking for some relaxing and healing holidays and those who just want to connect with nature :)
I'm most definitely coming back to stay here, feels like my home away from home ❤️"

"My husband and I spent 10 days at Hale Hula and we felt that we had made the best choice EVER in our holiday
property rental history! All amenities were there; the cottage is in perfect condition with no exceptions; our hosts
were completely accessible when needed for info. on local fun and food; the bed is very comfortable, and the property itself is lovely, secluded, and pristine. We spent hours on the lanai in the morning, listening to the many birds, reading and having coffee and then went about our daily adventure. I would recommend this for those seeking true relaxation in a quiet setting with everything you need to have a perfect un-hassled experience. We hope to return for another longer visit!"

"The Rainbow Ohana feels isolated and remote even though there are other properties nearby. The residence is nestled in a lush yard of flowering plants, fruit and coffee trees, making one feel as if they were in a remote location. From the lanai you can view the ocean above the lush garden setting. Peace and serenity may be found here in this comfortable well equipped Ohana.
Honalo is centrally located within the Kona Coast area which makes for a good place to stay while exploring. We enjoyed our stay here and very thankful for the opportunity to visit.
Thank you, Brian and Kelana"
