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. 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 Kona Coast

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.

House is better than could be imagined.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the website did not do this house justice. You just really need to experience it in person to understand. The house itself is so comfortable, inviting and spacious. We shared it comfortably between two families and never felt on top of each other. The outside grounds are remarkable. The waves break so close that you feel they are coming for you even though they don't. Sleeping to the sound of the ocean was so relaxing. The house was equipped with everything you could possibly want .

The location was perfectly situated between two great beaches. We highly recommend the one that is about a mile south for snorkeling and surfing lessons. The town of Kona was just a bit to the north. Be sure to make it up there for dinner or a drink during sunset.

Teri is a great host and extremely helpful and informative. We had the best vacation of our lives and were so sad to have to leave. We have no doubt that we will try to stay again in the future.

Family Retreat in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my recent retirement with our entire family. The well maintained and clean house had all the amenities we needed for our larger group of eight. The lanai overlooking the ocean was a great place to relax and enjoy the view including porpoises and beautiful sunsets. We appreciated that the railings were protected with rope netting so our 2 ½ year-old grandson was safe. We had fun in the pool and hot tub throughout the week. We visited many beaches and appreciated the snorkel gear, boogie boards and beach towels for these adventures. The house is situated in an ideal location very near a grocery to the south and Kona just a few miles north. The guidebook provided by the owner was very helpful with suggestions for secluded beaches, activities and restaurant recommendations. We thoroughly enjoyed the big island and look forward to another visit to paradise someday! Mahalo!

Amazing Vacation in a SPECTACULAR Ocean home!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our incredible trip to Hawaii. We have visited the island numerous times and what made this trip so memorable was the house. It met ALL of our needs. Teri has created an unsuspecting oasis of relaxation, fun, and inspiration. The pictures on the website do not do the house justice although they are what drew us to this magical place.

The house was our respite...when not out surfing, snorkeling, standup paddle boarding, lava looking and exploring the island, we spent the rest of our time on the lanai and in the pool/hot tub.

There was a chest of great resources available for boogie boarding, snorkeling, and climbing around on the lava next to the ocean so we could better access the ocean from the house. We did not have to go buy/rent much as everything was provided.

WE brought our family and their statement at the end of the vacation was "it is going to be hard to top this place". That sums it up in a nutshell.

Teri was a wonderful "internet" hostess- welcoming us and making sure that everything was in place and our needs were being met. She went the extra mile and that made all of the difference.

This was one of the best houses we have stayed in!!! We highly recommend!!!

Convenient location, beautiful views, oceanfront, well-maintained home and grounds

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family. Far enough away from town, quiet and relaxing, but close enough to everything. Walking distance to beach. The detached suite and downstairs suite provided much-needed private time for the teenagers. I can't imagine a better rental property on Big Island.

Best place to stay in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

I've been reluctant to post a review because I don't want the rest of the world to find out about this amazing house!

The location is perfect, the house is everything that it's described to be, and you can't beat the view and the proximity to the ocean. We really appreciated how the kitchen was stocked with all of the tools needed to cook and barbecue. The house felt more like we were borrowing a friend's house rather than staying at a rental property.

This house will always be our first choice when visiting Hawaii!
