  • A piece of heaven

    "We have stayed in just about all Sophia's properties and have had no complaints. The houses are beautiful and well stocked. All you need is groceries and you're all set. Sophia will address any issues you have and get them resolved quickly . The area is quiet so don't expect a lot to see but if you're looking for piece and quiet you have it. Rental car a must. Getting across the island is easy and Kona has all the tourism you need."

  • Paradise!!!

    "My husband & I had a fantastic stay at Bay Front Bungalow. This gated community was so quiet & peaceful & offered the wonderful opportunity to "play in the water" right in your backyard. It's nice that the home owners provide kayaks & some snorkel gear. We snorkeled in the cove & also at Champagne Pond. The best snorkeling for us was at the tide pools just a short drive from the house. The rental was very clean & comfortable & the view was fantastic!!! Yes, construction is still happening next door, but it wasn't any big deal. Glad we chose this rental, as it worked so well for us."

  • Modern appointments, great location- what a steal

    "We stayed here last week for spring break as part of an extended family trip and could not be more pleased. The house is well appointed with modern amenities. We aren't talking a beach house that has been aging for 15 years. The kitchen was modern (only lacking a dishwasher), and the house had a large main bathroom, a large upper suite and plenty of room for our 3 kids (age 3 - 8) plus six adults. Want wi-fi? Got it. Nice grill for cooking outside? Done. Plenty of patio space for lounging or napping during hammock time? Oh, you know it is there. Look, I love me some resorts where there are throngs of staff waiting on you hand and foot. But that comes with a huge price, especially in Hawaii. If you are searching VRBO you know what I am talking about. This place is about 40 minutes to an hour from Hilo International Airport, with a Wal-Mart and grocery stores on the way. With some simple planning, and shopping before you arrive, you are setup in a wonderful (small) neighborhood near some of the best snorkeling Hawaii has to offer. My 8 yr old daughter caught the snorkeling bug, and we had wonderful father/daughter bonding time every morning and evening as we dove together in calm waters. Pros: Modern house well appointed with snorkel gear, kitchen needs, electronics (tvs, dvd, wi-fi, etc) and lounging (lots of couches and a hammock to snooze on). Walking distance to amazing tide pools with breathtaking, novice snorkel opportunities. A bit off the beaten path. On the busiest day we saw maybe 20 people spread out over a large area. We could easily get off on our own. Lush rain forest terrain with fruit trees, tide pools and lots of wildlife. We saw birds, Mongoose, wild pig and more. Within a 20 minute drive of grocery and some restaurants. Only 40 mins to an hour to Hilo. Great owners. We had an electrical problem there (GFCI tripping periodically) and the owners did everything possible to fix the problem for us. It was easily worked around, but their attentiveness was ingratiating. Cons: No beach. This is where the lava flows, so think lunar landscape, not sandy white beaches. When you go snorkeling you are stumbling over sharp lava rock, so wear decent shoes and gloves. Even then, most of us had some scrapes. A bit secluded, so you'll want a car for times you just want restaurant food and it is hole-in-the-wall dining. Rainy side- not constant sun but every day there were hours of light sun for every hour of rain. Be flexible."
