  • 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."

  • A Trip to Paradise

    "Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We booked this house as it was a perfect location and a great price. First note is the pictures do not do the house justice. Yes the house is older/bit dated, but perfect for what you need. How nice to have a full kitchen, we cooked a few meals at the house even grilled one night. The grounds are stunning. We all had our own rooms with an ocean view. We were able to go to bed to the sounds of the ocean each night. Each morning we would have coffee on the lanai and watch the tour boats head out for the day, some snorkel boats stopping out from our house bringing in dolphins to watch. The Queen's pool was a nice touch with sea life in it. We were close to town a great location. The hot tub was a nice touch as well. The manager answered all my pesky questions, I had allot. It was very hard to leave, as by the end of our vacation it felt like home. I cannot wait to go back"

  • Great house with awesome location

    "Great older home that has been very well maintained. The location couldn't have been any better and the fact that the house is right on the ocean with fantastic lava tidal pools allowed us to watch and admire many sea turtles during our stay. Kathy was fantastic during the booking and providing us with easy to understand instructions regarding the gate code, key box, etc. The only minor issue is a lack of central air conditioning. During our visit, the Kona temperature was HOT and the lack of central air was a mild inconvenience. The Master Bedroom did have a window unit that was a savior. Usual summer temperatures are rarely this hot, so there usually is no need for air conditioning. I'd recommend Kathy's lovely home to anyone wanting to stay near Kona (about a 5 minute drive from the home)."

  • 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."
