Recent Kalapana reviews

  • Cozy Kehena Studio

    "If you are one or two people who want to stay in the Kehena neighborhood, Babette's place is an excellent choice. It is roomy, clean, quiet and feels comfortably secluded. It is very well stocked, and there are showers inside and outside. Babette made herself very available in case I needed anything, but was very respectful of my privacy. It is a short and beautiful walk to the beach."

  • Wonderful stay

    "We had a wonderful stay in this large and quiet house. Chad and Sue (the owners) are very kind, helpful but also very discrete. They welcomed us with a pineapple of their own production. The house was very clean and nothing was missing. Be sure that we will recommend this condo to all our friends and that we will rent it again if we came back in Big Island again."

  • Nice cottage in a quiet location

    "First let me say that our experience is clearly not the norm judging by the reviews submitted by previous guests. We were there at a time when the trade winds were nonexistent and right after a devastating hurricane had knocked out power for two weeks. We rented the cottage for a month but delayed our stay, due to the hurricane and uncertainty about when power would be restored, and came down thirteen days late even though it meant paying for another VRBO rental during that time. Diane did offer to refund a weeks rent but I declined since she, most certainly, could not have foreseen a hurricane. The cottage was neat and organized but not as clean as we would have expected. We found tiny ants were thick on the counter tops. My wife and I did a through cleaning in an attempt to rid the house of ants the first evening we were there but were never able to rid the cabinets of ants. The ant problem should be taken care of for the following tenants as Diane said it would be a priority for her caretaker. Being seniors in our seventies in not the best physical condition, we had planned spending a lot of time just relaxing in the cottage and, with a month to stay, only venturing out when the mood struck. However we found that the cottage was too hot to spend time there comfortably. There was seldom a breeze due to the lack of trade winds. The lanai was extremely hot during the day. The cottage did cool off at night and we never felt the need to run the AC unit in the bedroom. This cottage is for younger folks that want to spend their days on the beach, hiking or some of the many other activities available."

  • Good Value

    "I would say that this is a great deal for the money if you appreciate a remote location. It is near some very interesting natural sites. It would rate five stars from me if the squeaky doors were oiled. The homeowner provided good directions and a map."
