Wonderful vacation place
My family thoroughly enjoyed the Kona Shangrila! It was big enough for my family of 5, my parents, and one more couple. We had enough space for everyone but felt close at the same time. We ate breakfast and dinners together and never felt cramped. The pool and deck were our favorite places to hang out and listen to the waves. Light those tiki torches and enjoy wonderful Hawaiian evenings! The beds are all super comfortable. The house was clean in and out. Even the grill was super clean. Check-in is a breeze, as is check-out. Sterling and Trisha are awesome! Great hosts and communication was amazing. All in all, we had a wonderful time and would stay at the Kona Shangrila again!!!
Right combination of features.
Right on the water with views, pool and location. Rent a SUP and surfboard because you will have ample opportunities for both right out the door. Snorkeling will show you bright fish, turtles and dolphins. Bring a GoPro!
Eleven of us traveled from TN, LA, MS and OK to visit Hawaii. Many for the first time. Kona Shangrila. The house was perfect. Beautiful view. The bedrooms provided privacy and we had a great time playing games while enjoying the view and listening to the surf. The elevator was useful for some who had trouble with stairs. It was also great for moving luggage and bringing in groceries. If we travel back to HI, we would definitely book the house again.
What a great 5 bedroom house!
Our family of 15 thoroughly enjoyed our 9 days at “Shangrila”! It was very clean, well-supplied, including beach towels, meeting all our needs; the pool and hot tub were fun and sparkly clean all the time; the ocean view is spectacular with so much activity—turtle visits, surfers and fishermen to watch. We are grateful!
Fall asleep with the surf!
We just returned from the Kona Shangrila and had an incredible stay. There was a strong temptation to hide the keys and stay for another week! The views and proximity to the beautiful Kona coast are amazing. We watched surfers and sea turtles throughout the day. The home is ideal for large groups and multi-family convenience. The top two levels are virtually identical with two bedrooms, as well as a large sleeper sofa in the living room, on each level. The views from the living rooms and well furnished kitchens are unforgettable. We never considered using the air conditioning because of the ocean breeze and abundance of ceiling and floor fans in each room. There are two additional beds and a kitchenette in the lower level, so truly three distinct spaces to find a relaxing and private oasis for everyone. The dining tables are great gathering spots for meals and games, but by far the best location is the pool deck right next to the blue pacific with two large umbrella covered tables, multiple tiki torches, a gas grill and outdoor shower. Although it was mid March, the solar heated pool was plenty warm and very well maintained. We were pleased to use the beach chairs and umbrella for numerous outings exploring a variety of amazing beaches around the island. We wish we could leave more than 5 stars!
Perfect for our family!
Our recent stay at Kona Shangrila was fabulous. The way the house is laid out was great. Each family had their own floor with a well stocked kitchen and living room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The view from the big windows in the dining area was amazing. Having a swimming pool was great for the little ones and the adults enjoyed the hot tub. There was so much thought put into the amenities. Lots of gear for the beach. Towels, chairs, toys etc. Pack and play for little ones and even a baby gate! The location was perfect for everything we wanted to do. Would definitely stay here again.
