Guestbook comments from the owner

Good morning trish and sterling -



We have had such an amazing week in your beautiful house! We want to stay another month - can you call our bosses and let them know?? Thank you for everything. The house was wonderful, comfortable and we'll stocked. We will be checking out by 11 this morning.



I wanted to let you know the clip that holds up the shower head in the 2nd floor bathroom broke last night. It just snapped in half when someone tried to rehang the shower head. We saved the broken piece because it could maybe be super glued. It's in the shower.





Thank you again for everything!





Shanna

Beautiful home !!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 14 stayed here and we had a great time!! There were a few bumps but Sterling always came through and made sure we were taken care of!! He even brought us fruit from his own home. I would stay here again knowing Sterling would take care of us.

Everything that you see in the photos... and more

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Shangrila. There couldn't be a more beautiful and convenient location. We had 9 adults (including our children and spouses) and the privacy and gathering areas were perfect. We met together on the 2nd floor for meals and games. We were grateful for the air con in August. The elevator was quite convenient. I used the house at my own Kona staycation while the kids ran all over the island, hiking, SUPing, kayaking, snorkeling, etc etc. The waterfront area in front on the home is gorgeous but do watch out for sea urchins. The home has every possible thing you may need for a wonderful Kona vacation. We want to go back to this special house.

Great house and location

  • 4 of 5

Kona Shangrila was a great house in a great location for our family vacation. The overall layout is a bit odd with separate entries to each floor through stairs and an elevator. Stairway to 3rd floor opens into the master bedroom. Elevator seemed a bit dated and creaky, but it worked. Parking and getting back onto the street was a bit tight for three cars. The house was clean and in reasonable condition. Some outside facilities were a bit worn, but usable. Beach chairs were old, rusty and some broken.

A GOOD IMPRESSION

  • 4 of 5

We had a family reunion of eight adults and two children. Sterling and Trish were very helpful and patient in responding to us with information prior to attending and receptive if there was a need to call them, fortunately that was occasional. Extra items were available such as a small gift pack, (thank you) in the house such as spices and condiments, hair shampoo and conditioner, clothes washing detergent, etc. and the kitchen equipment. Remember to wear something on your feet in the ocean, due to sea urchins. Extremely slippery around the pool area when the tiles are wet and the littlies need to be watched around the stairs and balconies area.

The weather was very humid in July and found that we needed the air conditioner for sleeping at night, although we are accustomed to a hot climate. We were a little disappointed with the beach access and we did expect more sand!

All in all we had a good time, thank you.

Excellent beachfront property

  • 5 of 5

An excellent space for 11 adults, allowing for privacy as needed and communal dining when desired. The pictures can't capture how incredible the view is from the two large windows in the upper units. It is also directly opposite a small rocky beach where many turtles can be found and swimming, snorkeling, paddleboarding and surfing is even possible in the right conditions (though our group never quite stayed at the house long enough during the day to enjoy it). The pool and hot tub are lovely, and the grill was also very easy to use. We also loved how close it was to snorkel/surf gear rental, the essential beach chairs and umbrellas, and how easy it is to go to the nearby beaches/attractions like Magic Sands and Da Poke Shack. Sterling was also an excellent host, answering questions and addressing things as needed (which, fpr our stay, were mostly small things). Overall, we had a most delightful stay and only regret that we weren't able to stay longer!
