  • Can't beat this spot

    "This was my first visit to the lovely Big Island so I had no idea where the best location to stay was and I must say we got really lucky with this place. The location is prime; literally right on the water and close enough to the restaurants and attractions yet not so close that you get all of the noise & foot traffic that comes along with being near the entertainment. It's important to understand that this house is older and has history as it has been in the owner's family since the 60s so you must respect the things that come with older places. Still, it has great character, plenty of parking, towels, silverware, snorkel gear, and just about everything you need to enjoy your time in beautiful Kona. Tim was great to work with and the house was in expected shape upon entrance. So while this isn't the Four Seasons, if you want a quiet getaway where all you can hear are the crashing waves as you sit and watch the cruise ships disembark for the night, you've found your spot. I will be remembering this place for future visits to Kona as we really appreciated our stay."

  • Exceptional!!

    "We spent three weeks enjoying this lovely house, that has an exceptional layout and location! We have rented many homes over the years on VRBO, a few of which are on the Big Island, and we have to say this house was one of the very best. You simply can not beat the location; it is a nice short walk to town, but you will be hard pressed to want to leave the house! We had worried initially about being on the main road through town, but found it was very easy to get in and out, with a side street close by that hopped you up and away from town. We spent a lot of time enjoying the oceanfront pool and large pool deck with it's many comfy loungers. The ocean view is spectacular and the sunsets are stunning. We watched pods of dolphins playing out front and passing by daily. As avid scuba divers, we enjoy the underwater world and found the little reef right out front to be an excellent snorkelling location (a little care needs to be taken to enter and exit, but the reef is very nice and there is a abundant variety of fish right there in your 'front yard'). We found the house to be private and peaceful, with soothing ocean waves lulling you to sleep at night. Many nights we enjoyed a BBQ dinner on the deck and found the kitchen to be well stocked with everything you need to make a nice meal. The hot tub was a fantastic way to end the day; it was so nice to be able to relax, watch the ocean waves and star gaze. The house itself is unique, in that it has 3 good sized bedrooms, each having their own ensuite bathroom and there is another full bathroom downstairs---this is such a great feature especially when travelling with friends or family--privacy for all! We would not hesitate to recommend this house at all and we plan to book it again for our next trip to the Big Island."

  • Awesome view Great stay

    "The owners are absolutely awesome and very family oriented. I am rating my stay a 4 star because there were a few things that are not necessarily the property owners fault but un acceptable in my book. We arrived and the house was supposed to be open but it was not. We waited on the lanai for about an hour after arrival to get in but once inside we were very happy with the spaciousness of the property. The next day we left and when we returned we found that the key did not work!!!!! I ended up finding a way in through a unsecured screen window. There were many fruit tree that had fruit and Charles allowed us to pick and eat the papayas, bananas, avocados and macadamias. The kids had a blast searching the property for food. On the down side there were very many geckos in the house, they don’t bother me but my mom was terrified and did not sleep the whole vacation. The floors were extremely creaky especially in the hall to the master bedroom which also has the main bathroom so we were constantly waking up to kids using the facilities. Cockroaches and ants are a problem here as well. I was told in the beginning to keep it clean to avoid ants so we did, but I did not expect to wake up and realize my toothbrush would be swarming with ants (there was a colony on there no joke, I washed about 200 or more off before I could use it). I wish I had taken a picture…. The beach items were awesome but I would not use the snorkels and mask because they may not have been cleaned, so I brought my own, if there were cleaning supplies in the house and Clorox wipes I would have been happier. over all I would give Charles a 5-star rating and his property management company a 3-star rating. I would definitely stay here again because it feels like a home!"

  • Great Stay!

    "We recently stayed in this Unit last week for 10 nights. The unit was clean, updated, and we'll furnished. Grounds were immaculate, grills were awesome, and pool and spa were nice. The AC also worked well. We did everything that the Big Island offers. One night we stayed in Volcano and I would not do that again. All Kona stuff is in walking distance. I found the KTA market in town a reasonable option for groceries. It is a short distance to Da Poke Shack that has great seafood. Greg was a pleasure to deal with. I'd have no problems suggesting this unit to others."
