Very comfortable, great host
Very clean, great layout, relaxing and quiet area. Awesome host (Jeff).
Walter and family were a wonderful group at The Retreat. We would love to have them come and visit us again!
Lovely spacious, and comfortable house in a quiet neighborhood.
We really enjoyed our stay in this house. The house is really well equipped with plentiful supplies of dishes, silverware, cups/glasses, along with towels/beach towels. It's so nice to not have to wash silverware before every meal so you have enough. We also appreciated the supply of cloth napkins, and more than enough dish towels.
The bedrooms have overhead fans, along with standing fans for the extra hot nights. Plenty of windows to keep the breeze moving, too.
Living room couches were actually comfortable, and there was plenty of dining space with the indoor table, and the outdoor table. Sitting at the kitchen island as well.
Outside was gorgeous, and we all enjoyed the pool. It was never too cool to use, and we had fun with the pool toys. We also used some of the snorkel equipment, and the ice chest when we were out exploring the island.
We would definitely consider The Kona Retreat again on a return trip.
We had an amazing stay! We absolutely loved the private pool! Unlike staying at a condo, its not a big event to go down to the pool! Great way to just sit back and relax without any crowds! The pool is beautifully gardened with amazing plants and trees that give you complete privacy! The house was open and airy and we loved listening to all of the different birds in the morning and the crickets at night! The air movement keeps the whole house very cool and comfortable....no a/c needed! We appreciated that the house was well stocked with all that you would need to settle in and relax or head to the beach to play! I would highly recommend this home. You will not be disappointed! Jeff was a pleasure to work with and it would be a delight to visit his home again!
Comfortable, well stocked and an exceptional nieborghhood
Very comfortable home in a great neighborhood. Very well stocked kitchen and bathrooms with any thing you may need. Enjoyed the pool, the birds, and even watching the geckos. Very close to many harbors we launched from.
We just left the Kona Retreat and are already wanting to return! House is very clean with plenty of clean (white) linens and towels. All the comforts of home but with a hotel-like feel! Neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, we woke up to the sounds of birds chirping each morning. Pool area with lots of flowers and fruit trees around. House is very accessible to Kailua Kona as well- we took Uber rides into town to go out to dinner- which were easy to get. Only thing to note is that the whole house is open-air so no air conditioning, and the occasional ant or two. Nothing that ruined our stay or would make us not come back. We would definitely return if we make it back to Hawaii!
Lovely, would definitely come again.
The house is lovely. It's tastefully decorated with all the comforts you would expect. The kitchen is well stocked with all the equipment you could possibly need. We baked bread and muffins whilst there and had a number of meals both inside and on the lovely lanai where you can see the ocean. The pool area is clean and it's lovely to sit out and catch some rays in privacy and comfort. The neighborhood is lovely and quiet within easy and short driving distance from Kailua for food, bars and beaches and also the airport. You never hear a plane. You need to be mindful to keep the kitchen clean and not leave any food out as being a tropical climate the ants are always looking for anything to get their mitts on but we found if you just clean as you go you're fine. We agree with past reviews that we never noticed or had any encounters with Jeff and Janet on the first floor, if they were even there! The only interactions were notes left strategically to call things to our attention which we appreciated. Overall a very relaxing stay. Thank you very much!
