Guestbook comments from the owner

Hale Hanaunau ha a beautiful warm sun drenched hill side location in Kona Paradise overlooking the blue Pacific Ocean and a black lava field. The Black Pebble Beach (or Kona Paradise Beach) is a snorkel or divers delight (our party of 6 adults did both) and just a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive from Hale Hanaunau.

Hale Hanaunau is a 5 star home delight. Two Lanai's offer ocean views and a third private Lanai had its own banana tree with fruit on it for picking. The gecko's are enchanting. The hardwood floors and staircase are extraordinarily beautiful, and insisted we honor the Hawaiian custom of removing our shoes at the door. The amenities were excellent as adverstised, great kitchen, barbeque/grill and family room. Wonderful bedrooms with baths and comfortable TV living room.

Oh I would be remiss if I didn't mention the lovely landscaping with beautiful plants and shrubs.

Kona Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Great place, set up just perfect. We highly recommend! We were able to swim & snorkel, pet dolphins, shop, visit local coffee and nut farms and more. We just love this place.

What a great property!

  • 5 of 5

This house is what you have been looking for! It is just as described, super clean, coffee , eggs and essentials supplied in the kitchen; bathroom and beach towels were newer and thick. Plenty of space, indoor and out! Snorkel equipment, beach chairs, boogie boards in the garage. Lots of light comes into the house. Couch outside on front porch/deck plus table for four. Lush landscaping surrounds the home. Great snorkeling nearby. Road to home and home's drive (on ocean side of main road) are very steep for flatlanders, like us. It took us about an hour to get to Kona because speed limits are very low, about 35 mph most of the way going north. Captain Cook restaurants/beaches, etc. were 15-20 mins. away. The benefits of being out a ways is the quietness and all the stars at night, very relaxing. Beds upstairs were fine for me but husband and son found them somewhat uncomfortable. Outdoor shower is cold water only but great for a quick rinse for yourself and water things. We would go back in a minute!

Best vacation so far!

  • 5 of 5

This home was by far the best VRBO we have stayed at. It is better than the pictures and would highly recommend to any of our friends. Truly a beautiful home with beautiful views. very clean and well stocked. A great plus was the snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach chairs and coolers included for your use. We loved the location being a little away from the hustle of Kona town it was a quiet and private setting. Beautiful black gravel beach at the bottom of the hill was never crowded. The only down side was having to leave! We are already planing our return next year and hope to be able to stay here again! Thank you Tina for sharing this special place with us!

Gorgeous sunsets with all you could need in a beautiful, comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for my husband and I and our two young adult sons. Not our first time to the Island but a first for our boys and what a great time they had! Thanks in great part to Tina and her wonderful home and hospitality. :) After a long, glorious day exploring the Island and all it's wonders, it was so nice to come 'home' to a place that felt like home and had all the 'fun' amenities to boot. We made use of the snorkel gear and boogie boards; what a blast! So nice to have the beach towels as was one less bulky thing to pack. We truly felt very comfortable in Tim and Tina's home, it has most of what you need and then some.

Waking up each morning and enjoying that first cup of java to a beautiful ocean view and when we were home prior to sunset, enjoying the gorgeous sunsets. We captured some great pictures.

Thank you Tina, for providing the hub which allowed my family and I to create such wonderful memories that will be with us for a lifetime! You could charge so much more for your home and you do not, for that I am grateful, as I am sure many others will be as well.

Hi Tina,

Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your home for our vacation to Hawaii. Your home is very clean and well maintained. You have beautiful decorating to match the beautiful view. We found that all our needs were met and that you had put a lot of planning into preparing the home for guests vacationing and staying at your home. We will definitely contact you to stay their in our future vacations to the Big Island.
