  • 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."

  • Wonderful venue for a family vacation

    "We had a great stay at this house. We were there for 6 nights and had six people with us. There was plenty of room for everyone to feel comfortable and not cramped and for one of our couples, it was their "babymoon" so a lot of privacy for them in their own suite worked out perfect. We were able to see whales off the top lanai one morning and they were breaching which was very cool. Several turtles were easily seen each time we went snorkeling as well as lots of interesting fish species. Peter and Darla did a great job of having everything documented as to where to find things at the house as well as favorite destinations on the island and directions as to how to get there from beaches to activities to dining suggestions. Everything was close by (within a 10 min. drive from most shops and beaches). We were able to go running several times while we were there as directly in front of the house was the road with very wide shoulders and the views along the ocean front were incredibly wonderful. There were also several "toys" that we were able to use such as body boards, fins and snorkels, plenty of beach towels and chairs for the beach. Overall, everyone had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend this location. The only caveat I would warn someone about is just be prepared for the surf of the ocean being pretty loud. Just know that going in and you'll be great."

  • WOW!!!

    "We just returned from spending a week at Koa-Hale and it was amazing. From the time you walk in the door you feel totally relaxed. The view off the terrace has to be one of the prettiest views in any house we have ever stayed at. The bedrooms are all very comfortable with two of them having ocean views while laying in bed. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking. It was a short 5-10 minute drive into Kailua-Kona for shopping and restaurants. This is a great place to stay."

  • Great place to stay while visiting the big island of Hawaii.

    "This lovely home was perfect for our family of 8 adults. The house was stocked with everything we needed for our week vacation. It was so nice to have all the toys for our beach days including chairs, towels, umbrellas, coolers and more. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals when we didn't want to go out including a grill by the pool. The location was great and central to all of our exploring and close to town if we needed to go shopping. The owners were always prompt in returning e-mails and quickly refunded our deposit. We would love to rent here again on a return trip to the Big Island. I was worried that there was no air conditioning but opening all the windows and using the fans cooled the house off nicely. Thank you Cindi, Michelle Hollis"
