Clean, well stocked, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place for two families. Plenty of space, and a downhill walk to a fantastic beach area. Quite a hike up!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

House was wonderfully set up for our "grown" family of 7. A big kitchen/living room area, but also separate bedrooms to accommodate brief alone-times when needed. Very well resourced in all aspects (kitchen and bath stuff, dvds, books, beach equipment, etc). Great front porch for early morning yoga, reading, watching the sunset. Highly recommend it.

FYIs. A lot of driving! 30 min to nearest food market (Captain Cook), 60 min to Kona, 90 min to Volcano National Park, etc. And as mentioned in reviews, the walk to/from beach (which is a beautiful black "pebble" beach) is indeed steep (~400 ft climb in less than a mile), though neighbors of all ages are in great shape and were in constant up and down action. Also, before you do a big food shop, check out what's in the kitchen - quite a bit of this and that available.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you for your review. There is remarkable dining at Annie's, Strawberry Patch, Pat's Pies,TK Noodle,Loco Wraps etc within 20 minutes of our home.. Kona is 30 minutes away. We live rural where it is true unspoiled Hawaii. The local organic stands offer delectable treasures. We are glad you enjoyed your time in paradise.

Great house for family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house is south of the tourist area of Kona by quite a bit, but the location is awesome. The rooms were great, and it was wonderful having snorkel stuff and chairs and coolers available that we didn't need to rent. Would definently recommend and will stay again. Mahalo.

Beautiful, clean home with gorgeous views of the ocean. Very quiet and friendly neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

The home had everything and more than we needed to enjoy our stay on the big island. It was very clean and comfortable. The neighborhood was very quiet and the neighbors were very friendly and kind. We would recommend this property to others and would definately stay there again ourselves. It was nice to be out of the city and away from the busy (if you can call it that) streets of downtown. Most of the excursions we went on were based out of Kona which is about a 45 minute drive north from the property.
