  • 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)."

  • Comfortable Retreat

    "We stayed 3 nights in this comfortable and convenient home. The rental is in the lower level of the owner's home, in a quiet and what seemed to be a very safe neighborhood. The rental was clean and well appointed. We were pleased with amenities including a small but functional kitchen, generous bathroom, comfortable family room and bedroom, washer/dryer, and several ceiling fans to keep things dry. We were not thrilled with the electric grill; had we been staying longer, we would have been disappointed. Excellent beach gear was appreciated! Paul and Amy made the rental process very simple. We valued the privacy we were given, but the only thing we would change, would be to have the opportunity to meet the owners. Given that we were actually staying in someone's house, while they are home, we both felt as if we would have been more comfortable if we had met the owners at check in. The price for this spotless, comfortable home is very reasonable. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental to family and friends. Yes, the view is truly BEAUTIFUL."

  • Absolutely taken away by the view from the house, the pool, and deck.

    "Completely as advertised, except the view from the deck is something that cannot be described by photos or words. We had a wonderful week at the home, and in Kona. The home was very spacious, airy, clean, well decorated, and had all of the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Even the sofa bed was comfortable. The owner was very thoughtful and kind throughout the entire rental process and stay; hurricane warnings and all. She was very quick in responding to emails and questions. Well worth the rental."

  • It was all we hoped to experience.

    "The description of this home was spot on. The décor was delightful; the beds were comfortable; it was clean. The stroll down to the ocean was a real plus. The kitchen was complete and the Weber grill was available. The pool was the best! Not much of a breeze through the house which was an issue in that heat. We arrived between hurricanes and the owner responded quickly to my questions and concerns about how to care for the house during a hurricane. I was even told there was a local person I could call if there was an emergency. The hurricanes passed to the north and south and this house is in the lee of the island, so no issues at all. Besides, they were right, it is a well built sturdy home. I can see why they love it. I would stay there again. On a "needs improvement" note: the owner has reassured us they will put house numbers on the house in the driveway. And, trash really needs to go out Sunday evening as that pick up is way early on Monday morning."
