We planned very early for a large family trip to Hawaii and found this house on VRBO. We worked with Sterling in the early planning stages and found his correspondence quick and informative. Our group of 14 included family ages 13 thru 90, and the house setup worked very well for us. Everyone had the ability to have private space and we grouped for meals either on the second floor or on the beautiful patio which was able to seat all 14 of us at 1 table very well. The best amenity of the house is the view and the open windows to that incredible view. Grandmother has mobility issues and was able to get around very well using the elevator. The younger of the group walked out to the water to either walk around the tide pools, snorkel, or kayak directly from the house. There is a very easy walk in beach just a few miles down the road for those not able to navigate the waves. From the house we saw many sea turtles, dolphins, and in the distance could watch the whales. Boogie boards provided were great. The pool was used more than we had planned, the water temperature was perfect. Kitchens also turned out perfectly we had every appliance, utensil, and accessories needed, just bought our food. Even with 14 there were plenty of beach towels and the multiple washer and dryers allowed us to return home with clean and dry clothes. We were able to find a message therapist that came to the home and gave messages at the open windows. We did find that the house was so comfortable and the view so great that we did not get out and see Kona as much as we thought we would, it was just to great to leave! On our day of departure Sterling was very helpful and even mailed back a small item that I left at the house. If you are looking for location and space you can't go wrong here!
