About Anne Reece

I have been blessed to live in the Islands for about 30 years.Moved to Kona in 1989 from Oahu,raised two daughters in this home.

I own JUST UKES, an ukulele retail shop with 2 locations.One on Alii Dr here in Kona and another on the Kohala Coast @ THE SHOPS AT MAUNA LANI.Decided it's time to allow other families a chance to experience this home and great neighborhood.This home has always been a great 'GATHERING PLACE'. And maybe you'll learn how to play the Ukulele while you are here.Two Ukes and books will be in the house, and a special discount to guests who decide to buy one of their own and take a piece of Hawaii home with you...

I live in a separate studio under this home.Very private from main home.Most guests have a hard time finding me! So Home,driveway and pool are all yours.So far everyone has enjoyed having me on site. At first I was nervous about how this might affect the beauty of this vacation rental.It's been great from both sides! You have a personal Concierge,and I meet wonderful people on vacation! And then there's Kirby,my wonderful Sheltie!!! Loves everyone.... So if you love dogs,he's your doggie fix,if not,you won't even know he's on site.I take him most everywhere with me.

Remember I've lived on the Big Island for along time,so I can direct you in the right direction.

With Aloha,

Annie

Anne Reece purchased this house in 1989

Why Anne Reece chose Kona Coast

My 2 daughters learned how to drive on this street ,and so have many others after them.This home has always been a gathering place for friends and family and I hope it will be for yours also.Close to many activities,town, beaches,and I am always close by for any questions you may have.I only have this one property so you are my priority.

What makes this house unique

Salt water pool with an access known as Beach Access,because you can walk into it like you would a beach. Many children have learned how to swim here and it's also great to sit in a chair and read a book or strum an Ukulele....

Kitchen has room for many cooks. 6 burner gas stove and 2 ovens.

Slate in main living areas,so don't worry about coming in wet from the pool.

Watch the waves from kitchen bar area,while you are sipping your coffee.I usually walk down to see them up close.I also walk at night in this neighborhood,very safe...I hope you take the chance to experience this home away from home....

The master bedroom and kitchen were uninhabitable

  • 1 of 5

The photos don't match the state of the house. When we arrived with our family from a long drive, we greeted by the owner (very welcoming) and thought we could turn in for the evening.

We were wrong.

The master bedroom had alive termites in the corners, with gecko feces on the headboard and on the pillowcases. The home had not been professionally cleaned.

Because we were exhausted from our drive, we vacuumed and put covers on the bedspread so that we could turn in.

First thing in the morning we notified the owner who said she understood, admitted she doesn't have the place professionally cleaned (even though she charges $250 for it) and would refund 2 nights. We left the home, spent an extra $1,200 to rent a nearby condo and then when it was time for the refund the owner was rude, accused us of bringing the bugs (ok, that's not possible), and only refunded one night yet pocketed cleaning fee AGAIN (as she must have charged the previous renter too).

Then she warned us she would give us a negative review if we complained about it.

If you're interested in this property and would like me to send you photos, you can message me on VRBO and I'll show you the state the property was in. I have an impeccable review of my stays on AirBnB and VRBO - in fact, we stayed in one the 4 days before going to hers because it was on the other side of the island - and so there is zero incentive for me to leave a bad review except to tell the truth (as mentioned, I had to pay an additional $1,200 to get another place).

BTW, the pool was also filthy. We hadn't planned on using it while there, but it wouldn't be clean enough to swim in. The pool toys had mildew on it, and it was full of dead, fallen leaves.

The house is in a great part of town though, and our initial conversations with the owner were friendly and good. It was just when we asked for our refund as promised by her that things got negative, unfortunately.

Owner's Response: These people filed a complaint with VRBO and VRBO ruled in my favor.I refunded them 2 nights .As soon as they realized that I lived on site everything changed. They had previously stated 8 people/0 children.That's where the dishonesty started.They are the only guests that I was happy to see leave. And in 4 yrs of doing this,they are the only ones to leave unhappy.In previous conversations they had mentioned having an event here.I told them no events allowed. Home is always kept immaculate,and pool was recently converted into a salt water pool prior to their arrival. Pool is main attraction of Annie's Hale,and has been the source of so much enjoyment for all ages.Salt water is easier on everyone's skin,especially the youngsters,and easier to maintain. I take great pride in this home as it has been my family home for almost 30 years,and always love seeing other families enjoy it as well, and make lifelong friends along the way. Hopefully you will consider all the excellent reviews.Any concerns please contact me. Aloha Annie

Wish I could stay in this house every place I went for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful pool - great for kids and adults too - many, many pool and beach toys, snorkel mask and fins for nearby snorkel spots. Great, kitchen, six burner gas cook top, double ovens, large frig, more pots, pans, etc than you could imagine, lots of outside seating at pool, washer and dryer. We visited with family and it was great having a place we could all be together. Ate many meals in. Would stay here again in a heartbeat if available.

Home away home

  • 4 of 5

I came to Kona to compete in Ironman World Championship and our wedding. This house accommodated 6 adults very comfortably. The location of the house was only 5 miles away from the transition area, so it was very convenient although traffic was crazy during that time. We can cut through the neighborhood to get down to Alii Drive, so my family was able to walk down there to see me on the run course twice.

The owner, Annie, is very nice and accommodating. She gave me a ride to the start of Ironman in the morning of the race! She was always available and willing to help. On the first night, we found ants on our master bed. I called her & asked for extra sheets & she came right up trying to resolve the issue. She got us ant traps, spray & new bed sheets the next day so we didn't have any more issue after that.

The house doesn't have AC so it gets hot during the day but very comfortable in the morning. We stayed for 10 days in October, and it was hot to sleep for few days but I was comfortable on other nights with ceiling fans & floor fans. We enjoyed the big kitchen & pool in the back yard very much. The day after the race, we had a wedding, so I had about 12 people over for refreshments by the pool. It was just a perfect setting.

Overall, we had a wonderful time in Kona & would love to come back agin in near future!
