"We (family of 4 with two grown children) spent 9 days on the Big island, using Tina's home as our base. The home was perfect for us! Plenty of room for 4 adults, including 3 bedrooms with flat screen TV's and plenty of closet space, 2 full baths (with hair dryers), 1/2 bath, washer and dryer, fully equipped kitchen (regular drip coffee maker NOT Kuerig - good to know when shopping for groceries), comfy living area with big couch that easily seated all 4 of us, and a wrap around lanai that affords a gorgeous view of the hills and ocean. Cool breezes kept us very comfortable at night. Avocado and orange trees on the property were a nice addition. There are two gates to go through to get into the property - the first requiring a code which opens electronically, and another that requires someone to get out of the car and lift a very heavy gate - was glad to have our adult son along for this, but it seems that this gate was "fixed" at the end of our stay with a wheel at the base that made the gate MUCH easier to open! The snorkeling and beach gear provided (including aqua shoes, chairs, beach towels and mats) were great to have and worked very well for our needs! A good thing to know is that this home is located south of Captain Cook, and makes for an approximate 30-40 minute drive on a winding road to reach Kona. IF you like to go back and forth to Kona for activities, dining, etc. it makes for a pretty long drive. We were fine with this as when we headed out for the day, we planned accordingly with a change of clothes etc. The good news is that this places you closer to Volcanoes National Park and the Hilo area than accommodations which are closer to the town of Kona. In all, I would highly recommend this home next time you are on the Big island!"
