About Teri Gambril

We bought this property because of its stunning ocean front views, we also enjoy being able to walk to the great snorkeling Kahaluu Beach and Magic Sands Beach. We love the peaceful feeling sitting on the back lanai watching the boats, whales and dolphins.

Teri Gambril purchased this house in 2014

Why Teri Gambril chose Keauhou

We were looking for ocean front property that we could enjoy the beautiful view, plus have an easy walk to the Kahaluu and Magic Sands beaches.

Stunning views, lovely private spacious home!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home on a beautiful island! Our group of 8 adults had plenty of room to move about without feeling like we were on top of each other. You can tell the owners have put a lot of heart and soul into renovations. LOVED the pool and spa, what an amazing work of art! Had several sightings of whale, spinner dolphins, paddle boarders, snorkelers and swimmers right from the lanai. We appreciated the equipment provided for a day at the beach. Teri was very accommodating for all our questions and early/late arrival/departure. This property is an "ONO", recommend to anyone looking to stay on the Big Island. The Ohio Gang of 8

Amazing house right on the ocean front

  • 5 of 5

Both the house and the location were wonderful! The pictures do justice to the house but don't really convey the large size of the house! The three bedrooms have completely separate living areas, either different floors or in the separate Ohana house. The living room and gigantic lani give a wonderful community area but the bedrooms suites also allow for privacy.

The lani was perfect for enjoying meals or watching whales off the coast. The sun sets from the lani were absolutely gorgeous.

Teri was a great host, making sure that we were constantly happy with everything. This is obviously a house that gets a lot of TLC from its owners.

This is a one of a kind property and owners who have looked after all of there guests needs

  • 5 of 5

This property consistently gets 5/5 for a really good reason. The home is authentic Hawaiian and has been perfectly assembled by the owners to make there quests experience be next to perfect if not perfect. They have thought of everything including all the so many small things. You arrive everything is clean perfect working order a pantry your invited to use all your bathroom shampoos conditioners soaps, don’t worry all there.

In the kitchen may not be a gormet range but a fully stocked spice rack will sure help prepare that great meal. need a gas or a berket bbq don’t worry it is there.

Oh there are three separate living areas so if you want privacy or a place of piece from kids or family or guests you have three to pick from. As for views you are on the water and given the position of the volcanic rock the waves break righ in front of you.

The pool is not ordinary well the basics are but the mosaic tile work is superb as with the hot tub.

All furnishing inside and out are good plus quality as are all the beds

The only drawback we had was we could not book the same time with one year advance notice

Maybe that says something but we booked another time slot. The key the owners treat there home with absolute care and they extend that to each quest.

Fantastic Paradise Property Perfect for a Large Family

  • 5 of 5

This house is a dream. Right on the ocean with a great backyard with a pool, spa and large grass area. Sunsets every evening! There are three very distinct sleeping areas but a large living area to congregate. The lanai is amazing - huge and comfortable. You could sit there all day looking for dolphins and whales in season.

The kitchen is very functional and the food in the pantry is available for use. This is a highly under-rated benefit since it eliminates some trips to the store for basics like olive oil or condiments.

Although it is on a busy road, it is very quiet (except for the waves!) and very secluded. It is convenient to downtown Kona and to various beaches.

Teri is extremely great to work with - very responsive and not obsessed with rules as we've experienced with other property owners.

Overall, I would highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to the Big Island and wanting a relaxing vacation in paradise. We certainly hope to stay there again.

We hope to return! Perfect all around.

  • 5 of 5

This place is a great spot for families getaways (and/or 3 couples). Our family (including a 18month baby) had an incredible time as this home. It truly felt like our home away from home and was so relaxing. They had all the helpful items for a baby (car seat, stroller, play pin/bed, toys, and more). Beautiful Sunsets, clear sunny days, and so close to everything. Great location.

We hope to return, and when we do it will be renting this place again! Thank you for making our Thanksgiving holiday so wonderful.
