Recent Kona Bay Estates reviews

  • Pretty Amazing.....

    "Having visited the Big Island over fifty times, my wife and I like to think of ourselves as experienced in what to do and where to stay. We’ve stayed at all the major resorts up and down the Kona Coast, as well as many vacation rentals throughout the island. This house has many amazing features, but he best one is probably the location. We would venture to stay that this may be the best overall location on the entire island - close enough to walk into the hub of Kailua-Kona, yet peaceful, quiet, and secluded beyond words. It’s located in Kona Bay Estates, a gated community with 24-hour patrolled security. Check it out on Google Earth. Sitting on the pool-deck with a glass of wine is escapism like no other - close enough to the ocean to feel the spray of waves crashing against the lava, daily pods of dolphins traversing the coastline, in-season humpback whales that sometimes breach so close that the sound is deafening. You even have your own personal lava “blowhole” next to the pool, putting on a show when the surf is up. Plus, the enjoyment of your own pool and spa makes one wonder why you’d ever want to leave the property. Upon entering the home, you immediately know you’re somewhere unique, with a courtyard that is a tropical paradise of lush greenery, a lava waterfall and a walkway over koi ponds with fish to greet you on every arrival. Talk about good “chi”. Moving on into the house you’ll find two huge master suites (one overlooking the Pacific), a homey koa-wood kitchen, large living and dining rooms. Most walls of the home fully retract, leaving one with the feeling of open-air living. Tradewinds off the ocean flow throughout the entire home. The kitchen is fully equipped - we like to take a couple of hours to prepare a gourmet dinner, usually fresh fish on the barbecue, or prepare breakfast (with mimosas!) to enjoy before some suntanning and chilling out around the pool. In a word, this place is special."

  • Mele Kalikimaka from Hale Pahukoa

    "Rating Details: The property manager was adequately 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 recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our daughter graduated from University of Hawaii in Hilo and we decided it was an ideal time to for a Hawaiian Christmas. I think we have a new tradition! It was the perfect way to spend the holidays with family and Hale Pahukoa was a great place to stay. We loved having a pool AND beach access. We were a little worried that "retro or vintage" could mean old, outdated, or dumpy but not the case here. We found that the house was "as described" and we were not disappointed. It was clean and had all we needed for our stay. I recommend a quick call to the management company before arrival to ensure they have your name at the gate and the pool has had a recent cleaning. We had to wait at the gate for about an hour because security did not have our name and they had to get it all sorted before we were allowed entry. I would not have even mentioned this but I understand this was not a "one-time" incident. Can't beat the location, close to town and on the water. We especially enjoyed the lanai. We will do it again!"

  • Kona Kai

    "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 just as described on line, but it was a much nicer feel because of the outside space and the proximity to the ocean. We felt safe the whole time and I would stay there again. Our family LOVED it!"

  • Kona Paradise

    "We had a wonderful time here, what a beautiful home. You can just sit and watch the ocean all day long if you desire. The owners and property management company where wonderful in making us feel at home. I dont think there is a better location in all of the islands. peaceful, elegant and relaxing, yet only 5 minutes from town. everything you could need is right around the corner, yet when you are at the house you feel miles away from everything. The sound of the waves on the rocks at night was just magical. We got home and could not sleep the first night, it was just too quiet. we absolutely loved this home and hope to be back soon. Thank You Sheree"
