If you are looking for a place to decompress that is "away from it all" look no further. Fantastic ranch house that has a pool with a view that pictures do not do justice. We wound up never doing any of the "touristy" sightseeing locations because it was so serene and beautiful just relaxing by the pool.
Sally was extremely responsive with information prior to, and during, our trip. We highly recommend checking out Up Country Bakery for breakfast (our favorite was the vegan pancakes and the Gandhi on Lava Salt bagel) located in the Coconut Grove "mall" and Annie's Burgers for dinner (loved the buffalo chicken tenders and Māla burger) located in Kealakekua (it is about 1/2 way between Kailua-Kona and the house on Mamalahoa Hwy to the house). If you have a hankering for pizza we thoroughly enjoyed the vegan option pizza from Get Sum Pizza which is co-located with Up Country Bakery.
