  • 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."

  • Wonderful Vacation!!

    "Simmy's wonderful home could not have been better. The home is perfect and in a perfect location. Our three teenagers enjoyed the short walk to the beach where they were able to enjoy the snorkeling and surfing. The furnishings and amenities were perfect for our family! It was the greatest place to relax and enjoy our time on the Big Island. We will certainly be back. Thank you Simmy for making our stay wonderful!"

  • Home Away From Home

    "This was the perfect home to celebrate my son's 10th birthday. I lived in Kona in '93-'95 and fell in love with it instantly, so I was happy to be able to stay near town. It felt like "home". The owner met us on the first day; showed us around and was just all around sweet. It was everything and more. We spent a lot of time out on the lanai which was perfect for watching the surfers and sunsets. I hope to return very soon. Thank you!! Stacy K."

  • Best Island Vacation

    "We felt at home from the moment we arrived. Vicki was friendly, gracious, and helpful from prior to booking right up through our visit. Mahalo! The house is spacious for friends and family, very clean, and the whole property is wonderfully private and homey. The hot tub grotto is beautiful. The pool is cold in February! The view is terrific from above the beaches and town and still the drive to everything is short. So many great beaches just 10-30 minutes drive, we could visit a new one everyday. Even Volcano National Park and sites on the other coast are just a couple of hours drive. There are plenty of supplies from beach towels, pool toys, boogie boards and snorkeling gear to pantry items and condiments. A trip to Costco and we had everything we needed to enjoy meals "at home" and pack lunches for our outings. So many things to do - just check the provided guidebook - or sit back and enjoy the island breezes. The malasadas at Tex drive-in Honokaa are worth the drive! A month was super relaxing and laid-back but at the same time too short. We could have stayed! Friends who visited were impressed and are planning to come back with their family."
