The Kona Lighthouse

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week at The Kona Lighthouse. Our group was 7 adults and one 2 year old. Our family with the child stayed in the master bedroom where they had their own bathroom. Two couples stayed both in other bedrooms where they joined the bathroom. Our single stayed downstairs in his own little apartment.

Everything in the house was like it was in the web pages. No bad suprises at all. The Magic Sands beach was in the walking distance from the house.

The communication and the renting process was very easy with the owners. Our requests conserning the money transfer and everything else were fulfilled.

The renting experience, which was our first, was very pleasing.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

3rd time back to the big island and by far the most useful property we've rented! Like the other reviews say...the second floor lanai is awesome! Nothing like starting and ending your day overlooking the whales, boats and surfers frolic in the beautiful Pacific. Great for two families. Plenty of room so the teens can do their thing. Very clean and well equipped. Not spanking new for sure but thats not what we look for. It's all about the function for us. If you bump into something your not holding your breath. Lastly, I left my backpack in the yard one day while packing for a day trip. Among other things, it had a $1000.00 camera and my wallet containing all my credit cards, licence and $600.00 in cash. Being from Boston I thought, ok, it's gone, anyone could have picked it up. I texted Wendy and there it was waiting for me when I returned. I cant thank them enough!

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Walking into the Kona Lighthouse was like coming into our home away from home. We came from the mainland with my mom, and met our kids/grandkids from Honolulu. It was a perfect place to explore many places on the island, and had all the equipment, toys, and items as advertised. We arrived as the owners were leaving, and they were great, Wendy even suggested quilt shops in Kona! My only complaint, and I didn't ask, is that it was not handicapped friendly. My mom faced a staircase to access the main area of the home. We loved the pool, and the close walk to White Sands Beach, and a great snorkeling bay about a mile south! Would rent again without mom!

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Kona lighthouse was perfect for our family of 10!

My husband and I stayed in the master, 2 of our 3 sons and wifes took the 2nd and 3rd upstairs bedrooms and our 3rd son and wife and two children took the apartment downstairs.

The kitchen was equiped with everything we needed for meals, and they had everything we needed for the baby.

We loved walking to magic sands beach, and did so every night to take in the beautiful sunset!

They had everything for a day at the beach...chairs, mats, snorkle gear, toys for the kids.cooler,and towels.

We would love to come back....soon!!!!!

LOVED the lighthouse!

  • 5 of 5

Great getaway beachhouse!

One of those places that you instantly hope you can return to once (or even better more than that!)

Clean, comfortable and also quite a few hosts' personal touches throughout!

Our family had the easiest and most enjoyable stay here, we loved the easy walk to magic sands beach as well as the close convenient shopping center in Keahou (sp?) very soothing feel all in all on the property but also an easy jaunt to Kona's best dining, vendors, people watching etc.

The decks are large, and the pool feels very private, as does most of the house thanks to the trees and surrounding yard.

Great airy kitchen/dining & living area that made mornings & breakfast so nice (sounds of the surf, ocean view from almost all of the living area)

Great details like a "sandy feet hose" as well as washer/dryer, HUGE fridge & dishwasher also added to our comfort, as well as the nicely sized garage.
