Great neighborhood, loved the proximity to The Fairmont (which has tennis, great beach walk, good restaurants, etc.), the common area pool was very nice and never crowded, great grocery story 1 mile away (plus coffee and smoothies). House was a nice size and so nice for each bedroom to have a bathroom. Perfect for the 6 of us. Good value (other than all the taxes and fees that get added to the rental cost, which is common but still annoying). Some additions that would be great include better furniture in living room, TV in master bedroom, and bikes (noticed many of the other rentals include bikes, which would be very handy.) Would be great for the property management company to check in with guests in-person and explain the amenities (like the beach club, etc.) rather than rely on the binder. Overall, we had a great stay.
beautiful home, great location, sub par appliances.
The house was lovely, location was great! We used the pool and hot tub, very handy with a 9 year old. Also had beach club access to a great little snorkel spot.
We were a little disappointed but the appliances...the dishwasher was essentially useless, even after we pre rinsed everything they came out greasy and still dirty, we ended up hand washing everything. The fridge had a slight leak, nothing major by the egg cartons were always soaked through. The washing machine would bounce forward while in use, making it impossible to open the closet door. The dryer had to be run a minimum of twice to dry anything, especially heavier loads like towels. Also the lawn furniture was wicker and well past its prime, pieces were sticking out on all sides and we suffered a few minor scratches.
To be fair, we did not call and report each of these problems because none were deal breakers and we didn't want to have repairmen in the entire time. Our second day we realized the kitchen sink was leaking underneath..I called our vrbo rep and she sent someone with in the hour...I do believe they would have been as accommodating about a few of our other issues if we'd pursued it.
The home was bright and clean, our only complaint in that department was the area around the kitchen faucet was very grungy and we were grossed out.
In our 9 night stay we received notices that the water would be shut off for one day, the pool closed for one day and they were spraying the yards with chemicals one day...We felt that that could have been better spaced out so that the same travellers weren't being affected by all..But we do understand and appreciate that maintenance is required.
Over all we were happy with the location, pool/hot tub area and the size/layout of the house. It was very well stocked with towels, beach items, soap, shampoo, dish/laundry soap etc.
For the price we were disappointed by the issues previously mentioned though.
Nice Cottage but Missing Elements
This our fourth stay in the Kamilo develpment, which we prefer when our adult children are participating in the Hawaii 70.3 Ironman that ends on the Fairmount Hotel property. We have stayed in a different rental each time. This cottage is nice but does not earn five stars from us because it lacks any televisions in the bedrooms, has beds in the secondary bedrooms that we believe are below the standard of other rentals we have experienced at Kamilo, and has comfortable seating in the living area for only five adults in a rental that is advertised for six people. It was particularly troubling to notice the lack of a television in the master suite on this trip because my wife is recovering from major knee surgery and had no TV to watch while keeping her knee elevated in the master bed.
Clean, attractive home
We enjoyed this home, plenty big for a family of six and close to many shops/beaches. Only suggestion is maybe purchasing more silverware, cups for the kitchen as we went through them quickly. Thanks again!!
Clean. Well epuipped. Check in instructions easy to follow. No concerns at all.
luxurious and modern escape to paradise!
What a luxurious and modern escape to paradise! This beach house boasts of immaculately clean and top notch utilities. My daughter especially loved the bathroom retreat which consists of a relaxing shower with tall modern showers. It’s almost like going to a Spa. The airy and open living room leads to an outside patio with stunning views and a beautiful garden. Step out at in the warm Hawaiian night and you will be greeted with the amazing aromas of the plants and you will witness the spectacular views of the moon. Take a walk in the neighborhood surrounded by picturesque flower trees and exquisite gardens that will lead you to contemporary amenities and swimming pools. The property manager was very accommodating and immediately replied to all our questions. We cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay in this beach house. We will recommend this place to family and friends who are looking for a place in the Big Island!!!
Kamilo’s neighborhood has been designed to offer its residents and guest’s magnificent mountain and golf course views. While staying in Kekakua Cottage you’ll be conveniently close by to gourmet restaurants, shopping, beaches water adventures and tours. The closest grocery store is just five minutes away at the Mauna Lani Shops and the luxury boutiques and bistros of the Waikoloa King and Queen Shops are just a 10-minute drive from the cottage.
