Recent Kona Coast reviews

  • Great place to stay for one or two people.

    "My husband found the listing for the Little Surf Shack and all the reviews had five stars. So we booked for two weeks. Easy to find with our GPS, located high up and back from the Kona Airport. No plane noise, an expansive view, the house has lovely gardens, enough storage for our items, a small refrigerator, coffee maker and other items you want. We prepared our breakfasts using the hot plate and pans, and there is a grill on the lanai that we did not use, the lanai provides additional space to walk out on or relax at the table. Plenty of towels are provided. There was a beach umbrella, two beach chairs, and two boogie boards which we used nearly daily. The neighborhood is residential and we enjoyed our stay always looking forward to returning to the the Little Surf Shack to relax until the next day of adventure on this our now favorite Hawaiian island the Big Island. Thanks again Amy for providing wonderful accommodations and your Aloha spirit."

  • Our family loved this property

    "Our family of six, including my retired parents, stayed one week with Barbara. This was our second time using vrbo, so we don't have much to compare with. However, we have to agree with all the positive reviews. Truly exceeded our expectations. My nine year old asked if we can come back again next year!"

  • Perfect. Will spoil us, I'm afraid, for other island stays.

    "We enjoyed every aspect of our time at the hide away. Beth and Dave are warm and gracious hosts. The apartment is spacious and we'll appointed; beautiful surroundings- in and outside. Mahalo."

  • Nice Modern Condo

    "This is a very nice, updated, modern condo in a great location right on the ocean with a "to die for" view from the lanai. The building has covered parking and a pool, although the pool and surrounding deck will be closed for renovation sometime next year (2018). The owners live a mile away, but only for 6 months of the year. They live on the mainland and/or are traveling the rest of the time, but reachable by cell phone/email. A caretaker is used when the owners are off the island, and she was very helpful during our stay. We appreciated the direct booking with the owner which saved us some money. However, there are a few negatives. Be prepared for a long list of rules, including doing some laundry before you leave. We paid a cleaning fee which should include all laundry. We had to launder the beach towels, and it was requested, but not mandated, that we wash the sheets. A limited amount of the basics are supplied initially, but if you run out of things like toilet paper, paper towels, body wash, etc., you will need to replace them. We couldn't even find an extra garbage bag in the condo. Due to allergies to scented laundry detergent, we requested that laundry detergent free of dyes and perfumes be used to wash the sheets and towels before we arrived. The owners accommodated our request, but because there was a caretaker at the time of our stay, we were charged for both the new laundry detergent and her time. It seemed a little petty. Even though we got to keep the detergent (but had no intention or way of bringing home to the mainland), the owner could have kept it and used for future guests. We made the same request of the owners of the place we stayed at in Hilo, and they cheerfully accommodated our request without a charge. The place in Hilo uses a caretaker all year long, as the owners are never in residence. Overall, we were happy with the condo and its quiet location close to many of the sights we explored."
