great place to stay for a family.

  • 4 of 5

a location is good and the house is big enough. we could live normal because everything was there in kitchen, bathroom, and laundry. the parking spot is a bit tricky if two or more cars will be parked. other than that, this place is wonderful and my family enjoyed staying there.

Well-appointed home and very friendly hosts, though not quite what we expected

  • 3 of 5

We appreciated the attentiveness and friendliness of the hosts at this property. It is centrally located. The home was clean and well-appointed, stocked nicely with towels, snorkel and beach gear, and cooking basics/utensils/plates/kitchen stuff. Did not want for anything in the house, which was great!

What we were not expecting was that the house is part of a duplex, with another house on the back, and the driveway is shared. It is smaller than it appears in the photos (~1,000 square feet). The photo of the lanai is actually not a part of this particular rental (it belongs with the unit on the back of the property). There is also a lot of clutter in the car park and in the yard (tubs, old yard furniture), and the street is quite busy and you can hear lots of traffic while you are in the house. I am convinced the hosts are sincere in their efforts to make this a nice place and I think some of this can be remedied, but for the cost I would think before booking again.

The property is conveniently located, fully stocked and cute.

  • 5 of 5

My favourite part about this place was that it felt like you were staying in a home rather than a rental. There's everything you'd need. Jeanne is super friendly and a great source of local travel advice.

Perfect location and well stocked with all we needed!

  • 4 of 5

We were initially concerned about road noise for this rental but with the modifications the owners put in place and with all the fans there was absolutely no problem. The home was clean, well appointed, the bed was comfortable and we found everything we needed in the kitchen for preparing all our meals. We are scuba divers and this property was great because it provided a place to rinse and dry our gear. The covered carport was handy on those few drizzly days and the big screen TV was enjoyed when we were not diving or golfing. This home is close to shopping, numerous golf courses and the harbor so it was perfect for us. Jeanne was very friendly and helpful at arrival and the fresh fruit basket was a lovely gesture. All in all it was a very nice stay and we hope to book this property again the next time we come to Kona!

Good central location & well stocked

  • 4 of 5

Well stocked home with kitchen supplies, shampoo & beach toys. Nice fruit trees on the property. We were surprised that there was no dishwasher but it worked out okay. I'm sure it said that on the description but I never think to double check that. Saw a few cockroaches which is expected in a tropical place but still freaked us out a bit. Very welcoming hosts. Washer broke but owners got it fixed immediately. Others had left food in refrigerator and cabinets which was really nice to help with making meals. WiFi was good. Possibly a book from the owners with maps and recommendations would be nice for things to do and restaurants.

Car: recommended

We are close to Kailua town and a lot of the activities and shopping, our 'Big island of Hawaii' is the largest in the island chain and has so much for you to do and explore it takes awhile to see, so plan more time here to enjoy it all. There are beaches, for swimming, snorkelling and surfing and diving just minutes from the house. The Largest Marina on the island is just 10 minutes away with famous fleet or sport fishing boats, but we can offer you the best fishing at affordable rates aboard The Hapa Laka Hawaiian Charter Boat, a 5 star rated sport fishing vessel, plus take some dinner fish home to BBQ. We sit on the lush slope of Hualalai Mnt. so there are views of the ocean any where you travel. The area is Sunny 90% of the year, and we are in the green belt on the island where they grow the world renown Kona Coffee. The Volcano Natl. Park is a must see just 2 hours away on the other side of the island. If you like to hike you can be very busy here! So Aloha come explore or just relax in the sun.
