  • 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)."

  • Special visit with friends

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This was a lovely home. Showing signs of wear, but nothing a few hours of fix and repair wouldn't take care of. I wouldn't recommend this property solely due to the only access to the house being a very steep driveway. A vehicle with high clearance and a short wheelbase is needed. We were driving a Ford Explorer and could not traverse this driveway. Carrying luggage, groceries, and/or children up to the house is a challenge at least, a problem at most."

  • Kona Heaven

    "We just returned from spending 10 days here. What a great place to stay. Four adults were very comfortable here and we had plenty of room. The view is breathtaking. We enjoyed having the pool and spa to use on the days we didn't go to the beach and also to be able to jump into when we returned from being out all day. We arrived the same day that Hurricane Madeline was also supposed to arrive, thankfully she didn't. Sandra greeted us with a smile and hug when we arrived and was very accommodating that we had arrived earlier in the day than check in time. There was fresh fruit waiting for us in the bowl on the kitchen counter. We enjoyed having the kitchen for cooking breakfast and making lunches. Everything we needed was there. I did purchase two non-stick pans (which I left for future renters) as I found out I am unable to cook eggs in regular pans LOL. This truly is Kona Heaven. Thank you for opening your home up to us Sandra and Ken."

  • Couldn't Ask For More

    "My wife and I stayed in Bruce and Barb's rental property for our 20th wedding anniversary. The house was perfect. Everything we could have needed was there including DVDs, games, snorkel and beach equipment. The house was decorated with amazing artifacts that must have taken years to collect. Make sure you look closely at everything. Bruce and Barb are the perfect hosts. If you need it they can provide helpful tips on what to see and where to go. The location was ultra quiet but we could still hear the ocean waves from the lanai. We'll be sure to contact Bruce and Barb the next time we're on the big island. Mahalo!!!"
