  • Beautiful and Relaxing Paradise Home

    "This home is wonderful, particularly for families with small kids who don't want to stay in a condo or resort. We traveled with three kids (5, 3, 18months) and I loved the idea of an orchard and a swimming pool to keep them occupied if we were working around nap times or meltdowns. Our kids LOVED playing (though closed toed shoes are a must for the orchard) and exploring. The setting was picturesque and private even though it is a residential neighborhood. Debbie was also so thoughtful to provide a pack n play when I mentioned I might need one. Beach towels, snorkeling gear, and sun hats are also available for your use so don't bring from home. In addition to the lovely setting, the rooms were spacious and clean. There was plenty of garage storage for our stroller and suitcases and preparing meals at home rather than eating out was very nice. It felt like home, which if you travel with kids, is a big bonus. This home is located on the "beach side" of the Island so if you want volcanos and waterfalls it is a bit of a drive, but it is close to Kona and all the shopping you could desire. Its proximity to the airport and the Costco were a big plus as we had rental car issues that required us to KEEP going down to the rental places near the airport, but it wasn't a distance. Debbie was great to work with. She replied to all questions I had very promptly and the people she had caring for the house (gardner/pool maintenance/trash guy) were all very affable and accommodating. The gardner even took my mother in law and husband on an hour long tour of the orchard describing the fruits and plants AND brought lovely fresh flowers. It was paradise and if I am lucky enough to go to the Big Island again, I would DEFINITELY stay at this home a second time... maybe without the kids! ;)"

  • Oceanfront Perfection

    "Last month was our 4th stay at Apple Oasis and it definatly won’t be our last. We love the ocean view, the sound of the waves, watching the surfers, the excellent Wi-Fi, the security and how convenient the exceptionally well-stocked house is to everything. Richard is the perfect host and goes out of his way to make sure you have everything you need. He also keeps things updated. Between our stay last Feb. & Sept., he replaced the refrigerator (ss with an icemaker), the microwave, the kitchen faucet, the fans in the kitchen & living room, the table & chairs on the lanai plus new matching chaise lounges. A new dishwasher & a new washer & dryer were also scheduled for delivery. And we thought the house was perfect before!!"

  • 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."

  • A much needed vacation

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very 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: The House was very clean and smelled good upon our arrival. All the necessities we needed were there. The only issue we had was no A/C made for some uncomfortable nights sleeping. The views are beautiful and the house offers multiple places to sit and relax. All and all we enjoyed are week long stay here and would recommend it to anyone who can live without A/C. Thanks for all your accommodations, Sam and Stacy"
