Beautifully maintained home in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Large home, plenty of room to spread out with separate living spaces. Beautiful ocean and coastal views. We loved our month long stay. by the time we left, it felt like home. The house had every amenity that we wanted and none that we didn't. Met some nice full time neighbors. The hike down to the beach is daunting and coming back up is impossible for the novice. We drove down to the beach which is an uncrowded place to just enjoy the surf and get some sun. Close to Volcano National Park, South Beach and a nice drive to Hilo. Enjoyed the garden area with it's fruit trees and herbs. Spent a lot of time on the lanai enjoying the view and quiet dinners.

December 2017 Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a very spacious and luxurious rental. You have a great view to the ocean. We used this rental as our launching spot to tour Kona and were not at all disappointed. I would recommend walking down to the beach at the base of the hill and then proceeding to the beach on the path leading to the west. The hill is steep so save energy for the return trip.

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.
