  • Birdsong Paradise close to everything!!!

    "My family now has a favorite vacation spot on the Kona coast where we feel at home! The Property Manager was most helpful and caring with lots of great suggestions and clear directions. We were surprised how at home we felt in the condo. We knew with 5 adults we were overloading the condo a bit, so we picked up an inflatable mattress bed that turned out to be very comfortable. We left it behind at the condo since we're family now! There was room for all of us to be comfortable, even on the wonderful lanai. It turned out to be a huge blessing to have the motorized awning we could extend as we hit a rainy time. The brand new roof did great with the heavy night and morning rains, and we were even able to grill on the electric grill during a rainstorm. Even with the unusual rains, it really didn't stop us from doing everything we wanted to do. Be sure to buy to some fresh local fish and grill it up yourself for a great sunset meal and great view from the lanai. If you like to golf, don't miss the beautiful Kona Country Club. Most holes have views of the ocean. Rise with the beautiful birdsong as soon as the sun begins to shine, and get to bed early after enjoying the sunset. We left all the windows open and had wonderful air flow all night (ceiling fans helped), which also allowed the great mix of birdsong to fill the air each morning. We also loved having so many colorful birds hopping on the railing in search of some breadcrumbs. There is so much to do around the condo, and it is all so close! Shopping, shave ice, restaurants, etc. But the best part is Keauhou Bay itself. My son did a ton of research and found Anelakai Adventures, which launch out of Keauhou Bay, which is just a very short walk down the hill from the condo. Our family of 5 were all at different levels for paddle boarding, and we had the best time, with two guides who split up so my wife and I could stay more in the bay and the kids could head deeper into the ocean. Don't miss the Night Manta Ray Snorkel trip with Anelakai as it was by far the most intimate, friendly and special experience of all the teams out there. Also, the Keauhou Canoe Club on the bay will allow visitors to ride and paddle free with regular members Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for about an hour paddle. Show up about 6:15 AM. We loved having the double pool just steps from the condo - great for a late evening swim and so convenient. This was the perfect place for us. We left a piece of our hearts here ."

  • The Best of Both Worlds - The Perfect retreat

    "I had never been to Hawaii. I wanted an organic, non- commercial experience. Libby & Peter are the perfect hosts for that. They have been in Hawaii a long time & "know the ropes". There are a lot of unexpected bonus features about this IMMACUALTE cottage: It was about 15-20 degrees cooler in the cottage than the rest of the island. For example, I went to Habuna Beach which was 88 degrees of pristine perfection. I was not overly hot. The ocean breeze and amenities were outstanding. When I drove home, the temperature gauge on the rental car went from 88 to 67. It was cool, refreshing and lovely. There is no air conditioner. I was concerned about that but you truly did not need one. The bed was comfy and I slept like a baby. As to the chickens and frogs. Yes, you can hear them but people pay a fortune for those tapes to be lulled to sleep at night. I was enchanted. The rooster jaunted up to me Day One - I said nervously, "Are you & me gonna have an issue?" He cocked his head and swagged away. Lol No aggression. Just checking out his territory. The landscape, which was completely crafted by Peter from scratch, honors nature, increases privacy but what a beautiful experience to watch the animals and be at peace at night. It felt like a remote private retreat but you were 3-5 mins from Walmart and reality. It truly is accessible to everything. Fully stocked kitchen utensils & pots / pans, shampoo / conditioner, hair dryer, beach supplies (cooler, towels, boogie boards, chairs, etc... All things you would have to rent elsewhere.), Coffee Pot & bag of coffee, cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, etc... Peter & Libby will greet you warmly & be there for you 1000% but never, ever disturb you. I asked a lot of questions about living there. They gave real life answers and even offered for me to call them with more. Wonderful people. The true spirit of Ohona. I took the Gypsy Tour driving on my own and it was wonderful. The Big Island is the best kept secret. You will never be hugged by more strangers. You never see another drive that offers ocean, mountain and agriculture views simultaneously. Imagine wisteria & orange blossoms fighting for territory with the richness of volcanic soil. Everywhere. I always knew God was a talented painter but apparently, Hawaii is where he went Michelangelo on earth. The best of both worlds, really. I highly recommend it to anyone. I hope to be back soon."

  • Excellent Stay

    "My wife, daughter and I had an excellent stay in this unit. The condo is beautiful and well-equipped. It is in a perfect location, with a fantastic view of the water and close to the Four Seasons. The property manager was responsive, great to work with and very helpful. We look forward to returning!"
