We loved the house - the location was great, the amenities were wonderful, and the layout was absolutely perfect for our two families traveling together. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to the big island who wants more space and amenities than a resort can offer (the kitchen and individual bedrooms were a BIG PLUS when traveling with kids). We loved it!
Perfect for our family group!
We had a great time staying in your home and visiting the Big Island!! We couldn't believe the weather: 80 degrees everyday and we had to return to -30 in Minnesota! I would give your home 4.5 stars if VRBO allowed that rating! If all goes as planned, we hope to return in 2 years, and will definitely look at your home again!
The property is beautifully landscaped and maintained. Amenities are close at hand. We were pleasantly surprised to find that beaches were within a short walk (closer than we expected based on the property description). Aquatic life was abundant and we were able to see sea turtles every day. My granddaughters enjoyed the goats, the cats, lizards, and beautiful birds surrounding the house. The house layout allowed our family of ten to gather as a group when we chose but also had sufficient room to allow for privacy within the various family units when needed. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment for those of us who enjoy cooking for the family. A few quick trips to Costco allowed us to cook many affordable meals without breaking the budget by eating out. The garage is stocked full of fun beach equipment and bikes to allow the active members of the family to enjoy the island’s gorgeous outdoor activities. The management company was very pleasant and accommodating, helping us to extend our stay and giving us a late check out. This is our fourth Hawaiian Island we have visited and the Big Island is now a favorite of many with its varied activities to keep the entire family entertained. Some favorite activities were: deep sea fishing with the Humdinger out of Kona, the nearby black sand beach, the south point and trip to the green beach, driving to the Akaka Falls, a luau, a trip to Hilo, and the La Hoihoi ea festival. My husband is ready to book our next stay!
Comfortable house with access to great beach club.
We surprised my father for his 80th birthday by taking him to the Big Island. The Hawaiian Jewel had plenty of space for all 9 of us. The AC works great, the neighborhood is quiet and, when we had a request for a few things, the staff was attentive. There is construction going on directly across the street from the home but it did not interfere with our stay.
The access to the beach club is great! It's a safe beach for snorkeling and the restaurant is really good. You can bring your own cooler and food, but, if you want food and drinks without toting all your own stuff, access to the club makes it easy. That ease comes at a cost but, for us, it was worth it.
A great stay!
'lovely to sit quietly in the morning and hear the birds and feel the warmth of Hawaii. The bedrooms were spacious, and comfortable. And we even enjoyed the convenience of laundry and drying racks for beach towels and swim-wear. The location to the pool was an easy walk, and the pool and hot -tub were perfect. We LOVED our stay at Hawaiian Jewel. Thanks!
Wouldn't stay with Hawaiin Jewel again
The house was big enough for our party and was a reasonable cost so one star for that. Having snorkel gear, beach towels, floats available for our use gets another star. Would give another half a star if possible because I like that location on the island. However the furniture in the family room was worthless: a small weirdly shaped couch that didn't fit more than 3 people and an uncomfortable chair in the corner; the house sleeps 8 yet there wasn't anyplace for anyone to sit. We were expected to wash our towels, wash our dishes and take out the garbage?!?! Seriously?!?! I paid to stay here not to clean it. I own several vacation rentals and do NOT make my guests do this as I know they are on vacation and not my housekeeping staff. Get more towels to switch out the sets if necessary but don't make guests do your work. Also they were horrible at getting back to me with my request for a late checkout. Would never stay with them again simply for this reason. Owning/managing rentals myself I know that the way they handled this was ridiculous and completely unnecessary. Their communication on it was horrible and the didn't even get back to me until the night before we were leaving even though I had been asking for months . Had even been willing to book an extra day or pay more for the extra couple hours yet they refused to let me know until last minute. Very unprofessional. (If you stay here be aware that their checkout time is 10am which is already on the early side.) Will look elsewhere next time I come to Hawaii
We take great pride in over 400 five star reviews on our homes including a large number on this specific home. We strive to be extremely responsive and provide a home that is extremely well equipped and a team that works hard to ensure our guests have the trip of their lives.
This "anonymous" guest came for a very short stay and then demanded to stay much later and decided to ignore the contracted checkout time. They knew when they booked they had a late day flight but did not make appropriate arrangements. Fortunately we were able to get the home completed for the next guest who had an amazing stay.
Within minutes of the property are many options of things to see and do, included several beaches, golf, national parks and even ruins. Wildlife around the area includes birds and goats.
Holoholokai Beach Park enjoys spectacular sunsets and provides BBQs, Picnic tables, free parking and restrooms.
Enjoy a stroll through the Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve.
