"What fantastic place!! We loved Kealakekua Bay, and the house was just as impressive. As a realtor, I see A LOT of houses….this house has amazing flow, easily the best of any vacation rental I’ve ever been in, and better than 99% of the houses I see on the market. The layout is just totally perfect. You land, and it all just works so well-very intuitive. Super thoughtful design. It’s simple, but simply fabulous. Especially perfect layout for groups (we were two families) in that the house layout enables private spaces, and wonderful group gathering places as well. The large Lanai is to die for-massive slider doors open from the kitchen/living area onto the lanai, so provides for truly seamless indoor outdoor living. A complete wrap-around deck allows for multiple private outdoor spaces. Truly, just a fantastic layout and utilization of space. Everything needed was just right there, we loved renting kayaks (from Rufus just around the corner, such a sweet guy) and touring the bay. Really just a very special place, perfect location, perfectly furnished, and uniquely fabulous layout and design of home that made it a PERFECT place to stay. Thank you so very much!!! No dishwasher, which is no big deal, but does mean family gathers to do dishes after a meal. I know the friend we brought is already planning a return to the Big Island and wants to stay at your place…she also thought it was marvelous, and is dying to share the Aloha House with her family…"

"This lovely cottage-like home was perfect place for our family of five to spend a week. We felt at home as soon as we entered and, while the house had every conceivable convenience and thoughtful detail, it was still homey and comfortable. We ate all our meals and spent much lounging time outdoors in the large front lanai or spacious back yard. The kitchen was very well equipped, including a coffee grinder and mixer. We also were able to use the snorkel gear and boogie board that are available. Bird song and gentle surf are the music you hear as the occasional mongoose scampers through the yard. Each morning and evening we took our coffee or cocktails the 3 minute walk to watch spinner dolphins in the Bay. You can swim there or walk 5 min or so to gentle Manini Beach.
The drive to Captain Cook for groceries and other services is about 20-30 minutes and it is a short drive to the Pu'uhonua o Honaunau (Place of Refuge) and spectacular snorkeling at "Two Step" and to the beach at Ho'okena."

"We stayed for 9 days at this little piece of heaven cottage on the cliff side. It was about 20 miles south of Kona. There are several grocery stores nearby as well as gas stations, coffee cafes and restaurants. The hosts provide lawn chairs, snorkel equipment, boogie board and lunch cooler which is very convenient for road trips or beach days. Step 2 beach is a 15 minute drive away for great snorkeling. The cottage has a full kitchen with a great countertop for eating, ceiling fans for circulating the beautiful breezes and enough seclusion on the property for adequate privacy. The morning visits from the hosts' dogs were lovely, very calm pets. Enjoy the ocean views and the beautiful tropical foliage from the attached tiki deck. Everyone will love this little gem and we look forward to another visit."

"The place was beyond our expectations. Owners contacted us a couple of time to make sure everything was to our liking. Lots of beach toys to use. The setting was perfect for our surprise wedding with our kids present."
