Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Stay couldn’t have been better. The beautiful estate home was in the cooler mountains but very close to Costco and many other stores. Few miles to Kailua beach town, restaurants, shopping and beaches. Our hostess, Cecilia, and her husband filled all our needs, plus fresh fruit from their gardens. Would love to stay with them again someday. Mary and Nadine

Recommended for quiet nights.

  • 5 of 5

I just finished a seven-night stay in the guest Ohana. It’s conveniently located a short distance from Kona town, with shopping and a movie theater a couple miles away. Having a full kitchen was great, the bed was comfortable. Cecilia and Neil are friendly & knowledgeable. They gave me great suggestions for things to do on island. I highly recommend this for quiet nights, the WIFI was strong. After you book, check my car rental business out, offering up the lowest rates through 11 major agencies at AA Aloha Cars R Us. Enjoy your stay! I had a relaxing experience.

Our weeklong stay with Cecelia & Neil Paulsen was very enjoyable. The owners had most everything we needed for our vacation, from maps to points of interest to beach equipment. Very informative on places to go, do, see. Thank you for a great week!

Wonderful place will look to book again when I'm back on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed my stay here. A nice little apartment for a very resonable price. Very comfortable bed, nice little living room set up. Kitchen came in very handy to help save on food costs. The owners are very nice and was also very helpful. Under a 15 minute drive from the airport and around 5 minutes from Kona.

Spent our 20 th wedding anniversary here. Trying to figure out how soon we can go back! Cec and Neil are wonderful hosts with beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and coolers. Great tips on where to visit, eat and relax. The Big Island guide book was so useful! We were blown away with the fresh fruit and many attractions to take in. Truly the perfect vacation. Thank you!!!!
