Guestbook comments from the manager

Spent three nights here in October 2013, and loved every minute of it. Beautiful home with very interesting architectural features, fantastic location with panoramic views of the water. Wayne was extremely professional and easy to work with. The master bed room was an absolute pleasure to sleep in, the jacuzzi was awesome. The guest bedroom - which is downstairs and has its own entrance - has two twins, and is extremely comfortable; again with panoramic views of the water (as noted by others, the separate entrance would make this less than ideal if you were traveling with a child). Close to Kona but away from the din. The downside? We spent a LOT of time at home! Totally zen.

Reviewer Comments:

The location alone earns 5 stars, and keeps those 5 stars. The house is on the rocks overlooking the ocean with a beautiful palm tree to the left and a large banyan next door to the right. Waves crash on the rocks and lull you into a tropical mood almost immediately. We saw 1 whale and dozens of spinner dolphins would come by every few days. The deck is the place to be. The house itself is very functional with a few caveats. It is a stretch to say "like new." It would be awkward for 2 couples as the downstairs is nothing compared to the upstairs (put the kids downstairs). Not enough basic supplies like toilet paper, hand soap, etc. provided. We had to purchase more 1/2 way thru our stay. Kitchen is well appointed but needs sharp knives and a kettle or teapot. The pool is big enough for 3 to relax on floats but was not ready when we arrived and we had to turn off the water the next day once full. Trash was not removed before or during our stay. Overall, communication is not great. For example, other homestays have resource notebooks indicating if you need to take trash out and what day, how the hot water works (solar, be aware of showers in the morning), where local stores are and some recommendations. Putting these things aside, the view and location more than compensated for us. We spent hours on the deck with the wall of windows wide open to let the winds blow thru. We cooked many meals and dined to the sound of the ocean and birds. You can walk to Kailua in 10-15 minutes for shopping/dining/drinks. There are a few swimming beaches within 15 minutes’ walk as well. We would recommend a car as groceries are more limited close by and you will want to explore. We will likely stay here again in the future as the view/location are outstanding.

We rented here for the location, which was even better than we expected. When we arrived, the house turned out to be so much better than we expected too, as the picures don't capture the total package. Well appointed and so comfortable. One wall opens up, and all you see and hear is ocean, which is a dream We would love to stay here again. The extra, detached bedroom and bath is downstairs, nice for privacy, but not for young children. This worked for our group of four. Great house, great location. So relaxing and a great find!

Reviewer Comments:

We have been vacationing in Kona for 28 years. This was our first time to stay on the oceanfront. We loved the house and the large lanai on the water where we spent most of our time. The house had everything we needed and was close to Kona village. We always love to eat at Huggo's for sunsets but because of the privacy and gorgeous sunsets with the sound of the waves thrashing against the shore we dined at home more often. It was a very peaceful and relaxing home and we would definitely rent it again for our next trip to Kona.

Reviewer Comments:

We were very happy with the house and amenities. Great location, walking distance to town. House is set back off Alii Drive, very private. Amazing views and sunsets. Pool was perfect for a dip. The kitchen / living area has an open, spacious design. The master bedroom was a good size and had a nice layout. Beautiful views right from bed! Second bedroom is small and has a separate entrance. It is not part of the main house. Would not advise this rental if you had younger children. When we arrived the house was clean with a few minor exceptions. The large window / ledge area above the kitchen sink had not been wiped down. There were one too many dead bugs to have to see. When we went to use the dishwasher, it was completely full, so we had to re-run it. Also, previous reviews mentioned torn screens. This is still the case. We came across quite a few that are still in need of repair, especially the front entrance way screen. Overall a really nice rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The location is amazing. The house is spacious and furnished nicely. There were too many little nagging issues for the property to be considered awesome. It's apparent the owners are very conscientious about spending on maintenance. The screens are unable to stop the bugs because they are either torn, don't close properly, or rusting off their tracks. I've rented homes through VRBO many times and every property has issues. When the issues infringe on my limited vacation days I feel compelled to write about it. On day 5 of our stay the elements on the range refused to turn off. I found the breaker panel and forced the stove to turn off. I called the manager and he had a repair guy at the house 4 days later. The wiring harness was charred and brittle. Not only inoperative but dangerous. The repair guy cobbled it together and got it working on our last day there. The food I had planned on cooking went bad and we spent more time in local restaurants than we wanted to. Gourmet kitchens are only good if you can use them. Had the manager offered us an electric element from Wal Mart this review would be very different. If the owners were to replace the broken air conditioner on the main floor, and get a new stove I'd rent this place again. The house deserves to be air conditioned properly. Like all VRBO houses, the description is deceptive and misleading. The "pool" is actually a giant plunge style pool. No filtration or skimmer just a watering hole next to the ocean. Pretty certain the pool is frequently drained into the ocean and refilled. The ocean area directly in front of the pool looks bleached out. It's a great house with an incredible view just don't expect the moon. Not willing to recommend it as is, but with proper maintenance this place could be fantastic. Disclaimer: The property manager gave us a nights credit after I badgered him about the broken stove.

Owner's Response: Upon inspection a small tear was noted on the front door screen. The sliding screen doors on the lanai worked fine and are not rusting off the tracks. I received a call Friday evening on the range and was not able to get a repairman there until Monday morning. The wiring had come loose and was reattached. There was no charring or danger to the guest. (confirmed by the repairman that fixed it) During this period the oven was working, the microwave was working and the BBQ on the lanai all were usable. The fridge was working so do not know how the food went bad? The A/C unit in the kitchen area has been disconnected for some time and not advertised as usable or even mentioned on the web sites. There is A/C in both the bedrooms. This house sits right on the ocean with lovely breezes day and night. A/C in the living room has not been an issue with other guests over the past 2 years. The pool is treated with chemicals on a weekly basis and is drained and refilled for each new guest. There is nothing deceptive or misleading in the description. We make every effort to maintain this property in the best condition possible. It is oceanfront and requires more attention. The screens are being addressed. The stove top is fixed. I am sorry this guest was not able to enjoy this very special home as the guests before him have with all 5 star ratings. Respectfully, Management

The home was perfect for our party of four! We loved the house and waking up each morning to a wonderful view. The walk to town was easy and it was nice to enjoy the area. The owners have stocked the house with everything you need for a relaxing week in Kona.
