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.

Absolutely gorgeous home!! Beautifully furnished private home on the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

My family has visited Kona several times over the past 15 years but we have never experienced a stay like this. The "house of peace" is truly amazing. With the option of 3 private entrances there is more than enough room for 2 families. The home is beautifully updated and Teri has chosen stunning furnishings. My family spent endless hours in the pool, down at the tide pools, fishing, and laying in the hammock. We had an absolutely unforgettable vacation and can't wait to come back.

From the moment we entered this property we fell in love!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I cannot wait to bring our family back here to experience this beautiful property! We couldn't stop being in awe of the view, the beautiful pool, the peaceful landscape, the heavenly beds and the crashing waves and wind chimes lulling us to sleep. Snorkeling was a treat! We entered at the public entrance and immediately dropped into "turtle hole" (our name for the advanced entrance in a lava cut out down the street). Easier still is the public beaches so close you can walk. Love this Kona property and families can split into 3 distinct private living quarters. Hurrying to book again! Thanx so very much for providing such a blissful spot. J & S Kraus

The perfect house for a large family that wants it all and at a great price!

  • 5 of 5

Words can't express how grateful my whole family was to have found and stayed at this beautiful home. It couldn't have been a better fit for our group of 3 couples and 4 kids . The three separate suites each with their own entrance, king bed, and pull-out sofa bed was the perfect set up. The grandparents where able to stay in the more quieter guest cottage, while my brother-in-law and his family and mine stayed in the two-story main house. We loved how all of us could come together by the pool and parts of the up stairs of the main house, but could also enjoy the privacy that the individual suites provided.

The pictures Teri has of her home do not do it justice. The decor is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The house is large. The main kitchen, dinning and living room space upstairs easily accommodate 10 people without being cramped. In addition, the house was completely stocked with all the kitchen / BBQ supplies and beach/pool toys you would hope for in a vacation home. The view from the back porch is something out of a magazine. The first morning we woke up to dolphins swimming right in front of us. My kids and husband loved the tide pools behind the house that where filled with crabs, sea urchins and on one day, an eel. For the adults there is a hammock that is positioned just right so you can have a cocktail and watch a full sun set over the ocean.

As a first time visitor to Hawaii I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Out of all the things we did the one thing I will miss most is just being at that house and relaxing and sitting on the back porch. Teri from the first encounter to the day we got home from are stay was so hospitable and wonderful to communicate with. If a future vacation ever takes us back to the Big Island our family hopes to have the pleasure of staying at this wonderful home again.

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!!!
