  • 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."

  • Pleasant and relaxing

    "The house was neat,tidy and clean. It was pleasant to have the private pool and quiet away from the noise of the coast. The view was beautiful but not always clear as the vog was in most of the time. That I am sure comes and goes. We could still see the coast most of the time even with the vog. We enjoyed eating and spending time on the Lani. Although the house is away from the ocean the hill side slops/drops down so you over see the coast. The building don't block the view and the greenery and flowers are a very pleasant sight. We were very pleased with our stay and the location. She was easy to contact and deal with any issues we had. We were very pleased with this VRBO and would stay again!"

  • Dazzling, private and serene

    "We recommend this property in the highest possible terms. Photos cannot evoke the actual splendor of the setting and the house itself. The Ali'i Drive location is extremely private but surprisingly close to restaurants, bars, surf board rental, beaches, and grocery stores. Once you enter the large and impressive automatic gate, you are closed off from the rest of the world and enter an idyllic scene that knocks ones socks off. We are used to 5 star accommodations and this was right up there with the best. The house and gardens are well designed and meticulously maintained. It is true indoor/outdoor living. You sit on the lanai and feel the soft trade winds as you prepare meals, or just watch the surfers on the break a short paddle distance away. We saw turtles in the lava rock pool directly in front of the house every day. The sound of the surf is all you hear. There are no adjacent neighbors. The owner Ali and the agent Kim were both very kind and responsive in all our dealings with them. Jose the caretaker was also very obliging upon our arrival and helped settle us in. We keep dreaming of this place and look forward to returning."

  • A wonderful, comfortable house right on the ocean!

    "This house was perfect for us...had everything we needed! The lanai was a real plus, to be outside and watch the ocean and just hear the waves crashing. The house was well stocked with everything one needed for cooking. Beds were comfortable. Lots of fans...much needed and enjoyed. We will stay here again in the future for sure! Thanks! Joan & Ali"
