Great family spot

  • 5 of 5

The large five bedroom arrangement was perfect for our large gathering. Everyone had privacy yet the large living room and kitchen was just right for everyone to be together. The kitchen is very well equipped so we enjoyed cooking and eating together and could avoid restaurants for every meal. With the patio and pool right next to the kitchen/living-room we could eat inside or out with complete ease. This is a great spot for a large gathering.

Description of property, proximity to beaches & stores in the listing 100% accurate. Met our needs

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 9 (7 adults 2 children) spent 2016 Xmas vacation here. We found the property had all the amenities we required. We would recommend this property to anyone or group looking for a special place to celebrate or get-a-way.

The orientation of the house and pool make the afternoon viewing of sunsets nothing short of awesome. This house is well laid out for family or group gatherings & celebrations The common areas (kitchen, dinning area , living room, and lanai) are big enough to accommodate all and yet the house design allows guests to have their own space as well. For those who enjoy the ocean one of the best beaches around with a lifeguard is only 10 minute walk away. For those who enjoy a pool, this property has an outstanding pool and deck suited for all ages.

For shopping, sight seeing, and trips into Kona a car is a must.

Beautiful spacious home with amazing ocean views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Palauna Hale. Perfect location! We loved being within walking distance to two beaches and close to town. We stayed here with another family and we both had plenty of space and privacy. We loved having the pool as well, it was perfect for the kids and the sunset views from the pool deck were stunning. All in all we had an amazing time and can't wait to come back!

Exceded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Thanksgiving week at the house. We thoroughly enjoyed it! It is the perfect property for a family vacation. The swimming pool is beyond outstanding and the view is amazing. We enjoyed both the nearby beaches, the night swim with the Manta-rays was unbelievable, also loved the Fair-winds snorkel cruise which was great for kids and adults, went to the local Luau, and the ATV ride on the north end of the island and the zip-line on the Hilo side. We prepared most meals at the house including a magnificent Thanksgiving Day feast. There is abundant room for everyone to relax and play. The only problem was that we didn't want to leave! We definitely would recommend it to friends and family and hope we can come back some day.

Relaxing, beautiful, well appointed home with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in this home. We had 10 adults, each room has a private bathroom and closet! Each room has it's own AC for temp control plus fans. The pool, yard, views, and sunsets are all spectacular. The home is well appointed, with lovely decor throughout! Beds are comfortable with plenty of bath towels and beach towels. Everything was clean... No problem with bugs - normal occasional cockroach or spider but that is expected in Hawaii! We are a cooking family with a chef-daughter. The kitchen is fairly well stocked but not really for a chef so we may bring a few items if we come back! The bbq's did not work properly and the ice maker is broken. The owner is extremely responsive, friendly and helpful - in all fairness, we didn't ask for help with the bbq but alerted him to the fact that it needs replacing. We purchased big bags of ice at Costco which was not a problem. Everyone loved the location of this home! It's very private- you really can't even see another home from the yard... Just lush landscape and the ocean!

This is by far our best VRBO experience ever!

A bonus - a few beach items in garage... Mats, umbrella, rafts etc! Zac brought us a rice cooker upon request which was very appreciated! Also, we just love that there are two master suites!!!

Thanks Zac for a great stay!
