About John or Marcia Braunroth

My wife and I lived in Las Vegas for thirty years and decided it was time we left the desert for the tropical beauty of the Big Island. We are grateful and happy every day and wish to share the beauty of old Hawaii with you.

John or Marcia Braunroth purchased this house in 2006

Why John or Marcia Braunroth chose Kailua-Kona

From the moment we drove through the gate and saw the vast ocean view and well manicured lush properties we knew we found our new neighborhood.

We wanted to be close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. This property and location fit perfectly.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy being close to the water yet not having the ocean spray on our windows. We love the layout of the floor plan with the master bedroom on one side of the house and the second and third bedrooms on the other side. The kitchen and dining area is spacious and plenty of room in the living area. The interior is designed with Tommy Bahama furnishings, comfortable sofas and chairs and tasteful accessories. And of course the fabulous pool, gazebo and the covered lanai's makes for your own private resort. A dream house we look forward to sharing with you.

Beautiful property, you won’t be disappointed .

  • 5 of 5

The House was well stocked with all the essential Annenities of Home. So thoughtful to not have to buy paper towels, laundry detergent things that you don’t use much of during a week stay.

Cozy home with a nice layout to accommodate family time. Nice back patio and of course the pool. Water a little chilly in January. (pool not heated).

John and Marcia were wonderful host. Communication was seamless prior to arrival as well as during our stay. We appreciated their kindness and warm hospitality. You won’t be disappointed choosing this spot to enjoy a taste of the Big Island and all it has to offer.

This property made our family vacation the best ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed many times through VRBO, but this one is absolutely the best! We have been planning this trip for some time, and Marcy and John communicated with us promptly through the process. We were welcomed when we got there with warm welcomes. These owners have given this property much thought and love to make it a vacation dream for families. They were available for any problems that came up,

The house has a wonderful layout, with a separation of bedrooms, we’ll designed open kitchen, dining area, and the best of all, a lanai with all the comforts looking out to the most gorgeous pool and yard We’ve seen. The house is fully stocked and feels like home, allowing us vacationers to relax, enjoy and have our Hawaii adventures! Thank you, Marcy and John. You deserve six stars!!

A gorgeous home with hosts who care!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were delighted with our stay at John and Margie's place! It's a comfortable, welcoming home, and working with our hosts to prepare for our arrival was a cinch. We particularly enjoyed the very comfy beds, immaculate kitchen, gorgeous swimming pool, and having accsss to air conditioning (as most of our days in Hawaii were unseasonably hot!) I would be delighted to book this place again in the future.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time at Kamilo house - The place is amazing , everything you need and more was available in the house and in the garden.

John and Marcy really took the extra mile to make sure we enjoy our time there.

One warning - leave some free days to stay at the house , the kids loved it so much they didn't want to leave and do some planned activities in the Island.

We were family of 5 - 2 adults and 3 teens

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of seven and Kamilo House was paradise! The grounds are beautiful and well maintained - even better than the pictures. We had so much fun shelling all the coconuts onsite and having fresh coco juice.

The house is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a family stay. We cooked everyday and never came short of anything - from cookware to cooking condiments.

Always a plus when the owners greet you and are warm, inviting and helpful with any needs. It was like staying at a friend's house. Thank you John and Marcy ! We will be dreaming of coming back. Until then ...

You really made your time 'Hawaii' time You were quite the artists with painting coconuts and then getting the benefits of the fruit and juice-picked in the back yard!. You are all welcome back anytime with Aloha

Well and good

  • 3 of 5

General impression was really well and good ... we do enjoy our stay. Some points/comments for improvement which we seem are also necessary.

1. The centralize airconditioning much cover only the living room, kitchen and dining. The bedrooms becomes uncomfortable during the sleeping time because maybe some aircon ducting toward the bedrooms are either clogged or small.

2. An outdoor sink must be put up. If eating will be done outdoor by the pool, it will be beneficial on people going in and out the kitchen and sink by keeping at opening and closing the door.

3. A standby pump for the swimming pool is a always a must. We were not able to utilize the pool for three days because the pump conk out. The filtration of the water was compromised.

Overall it was a thank you for the hospitality os the owners John and Marcy. It has served our main purpose of being in Kona.

Owner's Response: We found your review very interesting especially your points. It's too bad they were not discussed during your stay 1. Most people when visiting Hawaii are grateful that A/C is included especially at no extra charge. Along with the ceiling and floor fans being provided uncomfortable sleeping is something we have not heard from another guest 2. Sink on the Lanai next to the the kitchen is not anything we have in mind soon. However there is an outside shower! 3. A pool pump is not an item that we typically have as a spare. It was late Friday when it failed and unable to be replaced instantly however no reason your family couldn't have enjoyed for the next two days of swimming and playing with pool toys The new pump works beautifully We are truly sorry if you were inconvenienced in any way As far as our review having you as guests ...quite astonishing We thought you were lovely people ALL of you and were so surprised at the condition of the house when you left. Very of the worst things was the chocolate or blood stain left on the new chair and then food left in the crock pot and unmentionable stinky items in the frig, dirty ashtrays all over, etc Maybe just a suggestion or point. Try to show more respect for someone's beautiful, clean home. Aloha
