I am a long time resident of Hawaii, a Pediatrician, with a love for the tropics, Paddling and all that Hawaii has to offer. I moved to Connecticut so my girls could go to better schools and I hope to retire in Kona some day in my empty nest years.
Sandra purchased this House in 1988

What makes this House unique
As soon as you walk through the front door you will see why I fell in love with this house. The ocean breeze, the warm balmy nights, the proximity to fun, food and frolicking all caught my fancy and I had to buy it. This was 25 years ago .... you might say, it's a keeper.

Great place with a couple of caveates.
The first thing we noticed was the two, in full-bloom Plumerias along the walk way to the front door. It sits right in the middle of a very nice upscale neighborhood just a short mile drive from the main highway, and sits within a three minute walk to the rocky shoreline on the bay, where snorkelers come to see the Manta Rays and small commercial boats bring people to view the underwater night life on the reef.
As always when renting homes from VRBO, (You get what you pay for). If you go on the cheap this is not the place for you. This split level home has all the amenities you would expect, including a fully stocked kitchen, (you bring your own food stuffs, as always).
The first Caveat is that there is no air conditioning, but plenty of fans and lots of windows to allow the flow-through of the wonderful breezes and flower scents. The second, is that there is a major problem brewing with the downstairs bathroom with a tub in serious need of help, of which I informed the owner. The drain has been leaking for some time and has either rotted away the flooring under the plastic tub, or it was not installed correctly, leaving the tub with a very unstable bottom because there is no support under it.
The pool was the Piece De Resistance after a full day of exploring the island. We would all jump in after dinner to enjoy the cooling waters. I did not realize when renting the home that it was a split-level, so if you have anyone with leg problems you might want to pass on this one.
Also, do not let the Volcanic eruption on the south side of the island deter you from giving this home serious consideration, as the West Coast Kona area is not at all affected. Kona also has it own airport within about a fifteen minute drive north of the home.
Great review ... however. There ARE air conditioning units in 2 of the bedrooms, the Master and the Twin; and the 2 other bedrooms are getting air first of June. But it is true that there are cooling breezes from the ocean keeping the temperature in the house perfect all day long. The tub is also being repaired very soon. I appreciate it when guests point these things out to me, otherwise I wouldn't know. Mahalo as we say here in Hawaii. I'm happy you loved the house and we look forward to your return.

Thank you for your review. It is a beautiful destination spot.
Amazing home and view.
Beautiful home in a great location. Comfortable beds, clean and amazing view. Lots of dishes etc and Sandra was wonderful to deal with at every stage. Absolutely no issues.
Property was very exotic and the view was something out of a travel magazine
The view of the ocean was breath taking and the accommodations were spacious and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the large Lanii that accommodated all the families for relaxing, eating, an viewing. The bedrooms and bathrooms were more than adequate for all our family members. We give the owner and the property a 10: excellent.
Mahalo Hugh for taking the time to let us know how much you enjoyed your stay.
Perfect location on the Big Island for a family
I turned 60 this January and wanted to spend it with my family and friends. During the three weeks at this home we had guests coming and going. Some nights we were as many as 8 adults. We all had our own space, not for a minute did we feel crowded.
Everything about this house was great. From the first night, which I spent under the stars in the perfectly-warmed hot tub to the very last day in which we spotted a whale from the house as we ate breakfast on the lanai .
The kitchen is very well stocked with all kinds of equipment. From a wok, to a blender, so you can make frozen drinks at night. The master bedroom had a walk in shower, a whirlpool tub, plenty of closet space and the bed was very comfortable. The downstairs was perfect for additional guests. More than enough space for everyone.
The back yard is a 2 minute walk gorgeous black lava beach and crashing wave.The location is perfect, within walking distance to stores, restaurants and pharmacy.
There is a gorgeous black sand beach a mile away and it is a simple drive into town. I felt like I found my Big Island home.
I spent three full weeks here and enjoyed every minute of it. And look forward to returning.
Thank you for your kind words, we're happy you enjoyed your birthday and look forward to your return.
