  • Simply wonderful

    "I'm going to add my voice to the chorus of praise for this wonderful, inviting, relaxing place. My wife and I stayed on this property for 9 nights with our 14 and 9 year old daughters, and I find myself constantly wishing to be back. The other reviewers have summed things up perfectly, so please read those as well. Our ending up at this location is what I call a "lucky misfortune". We actually booked a house a couple of doors down last October and were contacted in January that the reservation was being cancelled due to the owner saying that some working being done was behind scheduled and had a chance of not being completed by the time we arrived. He had contacted Shelley, this property's owner, to see if we could stay here and she contacted me about it before our panic had managed to fully kick in. Thank goodness things ended up the way they did. I can't say if the other home was nicer, and after staying here, I couldn't care less. Shelley is great; completely easy to work with and responsive to your concerns. One other note. Somebody else had mentioned about the disparity between the bedrooms, and I would like to add to that. I wouldn't recommend this house for two or three couples each with a equal share. Rest assured, the bedrooms in the guest house are very nice and worked great for our kids; it gave them a nice measure of privacy as they both like to go off and read (or text friends back home, ahem) by themselves for long stretches. But they don't offer the ocean (and moonset) view or large attached bath, and the sound of the ocean waves appear to be cut off as well if you like to fall asleep to that noise as I do. I also don't recommend this for families with small children who sleep in their own rooms as the separation of the guest house rooms would probably be intimidating to them."

  • Perfect spot for a family getaway

    "This house was perfect in every way, making our family holiday a great success. We enjoyed all our meals on the spacious lanai, slept well in the comfortable beds with tropical breezes blowing through the windows (no need for air conditioning), and fully enjoyed all the nearby spots for snorkelling and wandering. The location is great - accessible from the airport and also easy driving distances to other attractions like Volcanoes National Park, the green sand beach, Keauhou (for Manta Ray night snorkel) and downtown Kona-Kailua. We would highly recommend this rental house, especially for family groups (lots of room, well set-up both inside and out) ... thanks for a lovely holiday!"

  • Wonderful Family Vacation at the Aloha House

    "The Aloha House was perfect for me, my wife, our adult sons and their wives and my daughter. All seven of us had plenty of room to stretch out and relax. We woke up each morning to the sounds of the waves and the songs of birds that are unique to Hawaii. Everything smelled and sounded so refreshing. We ate breakfast on the lanai and then went snorkeling in the bay which was only a few steps away. There were more positive experiences than I can list here. Even though we were warned about mosquitoes, we did not have a problem, even when we ate on the lanai later in the evening. As long as you remember that you are in Hawaii, the changes in heat, humidity and nature make it a more memorable adventure. (We loved the geckos!) Several coffee plantations are near and we thought the Aloha House was a good hub for going around the southern tip of the island to Hilo and Kilauea volcano one day and around the northern tip on another day. Both drives were about 2.5 hours one way and were very scenic. Aloha House is in Captain Cook and a bit of a drive off the main highway, but it's location is worth the drive. The house was all that we expected and more. Beth was a great host and had everything that we needed to get started on our vacation. Thanks Beth!"

  • Excellent

    "Rick's house on Kealakekua Bay is spacious and beautiful. It is well designed, immaculate and it has everything you need for a great vacation. The old school Hawaiian style beach is a short walk down the road for swimming and relaxing . The house has great views of the bay, sunsets, the surf and even the Captain Cook monument across the bay. The area is full of Hawaiian history and archaeological monuments. It is well located right next to the bay with a great market at the top of the hill and a couple quaint villages near by for dining. I would definitely go back here. Thanks Rick! It was an easy relaxing week!"
