Seven of us shared the house for a seventy fifth birthday celebration. It was good location to explore all the Big Island has to offer. Great spaces for all.

A Poem For This House

  • 5 of 5

Turquoise is the Pacific water,

Blue is the Kona sky,

Green are the coconut trees swaying,

Black are the volcanic rocks nearby,

Yellow are the tangs swimming,

White are the waves crashing,

Tan is the house standing,

Ah, what a paradise!

Anacortes, Wa.

We had a wonderful week at this home.

  • 5 of 5

This home was right at the edge of the water. It was impeccably clean and well cared for. The kitchen was well eguipped and had loads of extras such as spices and paper plates. We felt lucky to stay here for a week. Don was hepfull and easy to work with. My only criticism was the quality of the barbecue.

Amazing House, Great Location...Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying at this house! It's in a great location, close to downtown Kona and close to the beaches along Ali'i. We loved watching whales/dolphins on the lanai while the waves crashed in front of us! Falling asleep to the sound of the waves was so relaxing. The rooms, especially the huge master bedroom/en-suite upstairs, were spacious and very comfortable. Having beach chairs, snorkel gear, etc. was a great bonus. VRBO made it easy to book and Don provided a very helpful information check-in/out sheet. Wish we never left! We will definitely stay here again.

Wedding on the Big Island

  • 4 of 5

We were a mixed group celebrating a wedding at the Royal Kona of my stepson and his lovely bride . This house worked well for our needs with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Every bedroom but one looked out onto the ocean. The house is well kempt and is literally situated on the ocean between Ali'i Drive and a somewhat protected bay on a narrow piece of black sand beach. When waters are calm one can see the assortment of tropical fish from yellow tangs to various butterfly fish from the balconies. This was the first 2 days ,and then the surf picked up and we were privy to watching the talents of surfers and boogie boarders from the balcony as they whizzed down large waves. The surf thundered..

The location was ideal for us as it was walking distance to the Royal Kona hotel where the wedding took place and I must say the Royal Kona out did themselves in relation to the lovely intimate wedding ceremony followed by a post celebration banquet that was delicious and accompanied by an and amazing Luau celebration with professional dancers demonstrating many of the different ethnic dances from traditional Hawaiian to fire dancers to Maori dances.

We stayed another week after wedding and toured many of the highlights of the Big island from Mauna Kea to Hilo and the botanical gardens to Waimea and Parker Ranch to Volcano National Park and this house was a nice stepping off point. Some of the best snorkeling was just down the round and then in the bay where the captain cook monument is located in an area called 2 step by the locals. We thank Don and Kila for their hospitality and the fruit basket was a nice welcoming touch.
