Reviews

  • Mar 13, 2024 Perfect house for 2 couples. Pool was awesome, we wish the pool cleaner hadn’t been in the pool the whole time. But we made it work. Plenty of space outside. We loved all the outdoor living upstairs and down. We even had access to the garage for parking!! Jennifer Hottes
  • Nov 12, 2023 Beautiful house in a quiet neighborhood. The views were gorgeous… we loved having our coffee out on the deck in the morning and watching the sunsets in the evening. The pool was a highlight, we used it daily and even after sunset a couple of times thanks to the nice lighting in the pool area. There are wild chickens and boars in the wooded area behind the backyard that were a lot of fun to watch. This was the perfect house for our stay on the big island. Only suggestion would be a hard copy binder with the home instructions as well as some activity/restaurant recommendations. Jeannette Mahmoud
  • Oct 16, 2023 The house is super clean and the view is amazing day and night. Neighborhood is clean, nice, and great for walking to get some exercise Bj O'Hare
  • Oct 06, 2023 Great place, highly recommend it. Nik Nikic
  • Jul 03, 2023 This house was perfect for the 7 of us. Kids loved the pool, amazing, changing night lights! Beautiful view of the coast and ocean from main floor and upstairs. Coffee on the lanai every morning was best way to start the day. Convenient to everything north and south. House was exactly as described and as photos represented. We’ll be back!! Cynthia Purcell
  • Jun 24, 2023 To start, the view from the house is spectacular. From each and every vantage point, the ocean view is ever present. The house itself is comfortable, well appointed, and open/airy. The kitchen too had most every utensil needed to cook a fine meal. Really no concerns here. Simply put, you can move right in and get ready to vacation. I will add that this really is a 4 bedroom house. For anyone concerned about the “2 bed” sleeping space, it is an enclosed room. Not sure why it’s listed otherwise. Again, this is a wonderful house, in a wonderful location. Rent it, and you and your family/guests will be very pleased. David Raker
  • May 06, 2023 The house was perfect. Very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. View was amazing. House has a perfect setup to give everyone their own space. Perfect vacation home. Jennifer McKinney
  • Mar 25, 2023 We had an amazing spring break at this awesome house! It was perfect for two families with kids - we loved swimming in the pool and watching the geckos between adventures and beach days. The deck with its phenomenal view was an amazing spot for coffee every morning and listening to frogs in the evening. The hosts were super responsive when we had questions and made extending our checkout time super easy when we decided we wanted to stay just a little bit longer. This house was a great base for exploring Kona and the surrounding area, and we were always happy to come back to it when we were done exploring. 🌴 Sarah Wachs
  • Jan 22, 2023 This is a great property for family vacations. Lauren Smith
  • Aug 17, 2022 Can’t beat the view and location! Made some great memories with our family here. Kelly K
