This was my family's first trip to Hawaii in over 20 years, and our first trip ever to the Big Island. We couldn't have picked a nicer home for our exploring of this very large area (had no idea the big island was so BIG!). A beautiful home with everything you need to enjoy the tropical paradise. The home is located south of Captain Cook, so you're about 20-30 minutes from Kona. Hookena Beach is three miles down the road, but then it will take you another 10 minutes to travel the final 2 miles down to the access point. But once you're there, enjoy the beautiful water and excellent snorkeling.
Back to the house, great view, lots of fun little gecko lizards to greet you in the morning. A gated road that leads to a gated property giving you a sense of security. A couple of neighbors below (one group is a little rowdy, but it was World Cup time so we'll give them a pass), but other than that very quiet.
Finally, the owners are a pleasure to deal with, as was the caretaker of the property. When we had a problem getting the electronic gate to open, it was solved immediately. Tina thank you for the chance to stay at your wonderful home!
