We stayed at the Bamboo House while on our honeymoon in Hawaii. The house is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. We were so glad after being there that we decided not to stay at a hotel or resort. The privacy, location, view and the pool made it the perfect place to be. Thank you Gerry and Mary Lou for making our first visit to Hawaii such an excellent trip.
Just got back from seven nights at the "Bamboo" house. While our stay was nice, we would not stay here again.
-Two big master bedrooms and plenty of room. Ideal for two couples.
-Nicely furnished including nice outdoor furniture (but only two chaise lounge chairs)
-Nice big screen TV.
-Four nice beach chairs, a cooler & plenty of towels.
-View was decent (but you couldn't see the ocean when sitting on the lanai)
-Owner answered emails quickly
-Noise from the neighbors at times. House is closely surrounded by three other homes and we could clearly hear them talking when they were on their lanai. And someone was practicing their piano every day.
-No snorkel gear & a really cheap beach umbrella.
-Old oven needs replacing- barely works. Had to call owner for instructions.
-Pool is chilly (not heated) so we only went in a couple of times in the heat of the afternoon.
-Refrigerator was full of expired condiments.
-No lights on walkway from front door to driveway. Hard to see at night.
-Ants in the house. Not many, and owner has traps out in kitchen and bathroom to catch them.
When we go to the Big Island again (we usually go to Maui), I think we will stay further north, closer to the nice beaches- or find a house with a heated pool.
We absolutely loved our stay at Bamboo House for so many reasons. We have stayed in a number of VRBOs over the years and this was by far the finest. This is a well thought out custom home with designer touches in every room, from the turtle mosaic entry, to the koa wood floors and kitchen cabinetry, to the bamboo woodwork and glass etching in almost every room, to....I could go on and on (beam ceilings, windows that frame the ocean and garden views, outstanding landscaping, the shower room for two, mosaic of fish and dolphins in the pool to name a few.) There is artistry in the design of this home that is hard to find. The way the house is situated on the lot takes advantage of views and privacy at the same time. The tropical furnishings were lovely as well. This home has everything anyone would need to enjoy a few days, or a few months in paradise. We celebrated our 5th anniversary here and had the house to ourselves. This home would be ideal for two couples as well, as the bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house. This was our first visit to Kona, and we found the location to be ideal - very close to town yet felt far removed. One of the best snorkeling beaches in Hawaii is 5 minutes away. We used the guidebook provided by the owners to find the best beaches and it saved us a lot of time. The neighborhood is gated and it is wonderful for morning and evening strolls with views all around. The home was immaculate, well stocked, and there was nothing lacking. Thank you Gerry and Mary Lou. Great effort was put into designing this home, and the same effort has been extended to make sure your guests have everything they need. There should be a 6 star rating for this home - outstanding!
Bamboo House is located in a splendid enclave of BigIsland... A gated community offers a groomed safe upscale ambience. The gardens are a botanical delight which provide a truly beautiful retreat and vista.
The house is very spacious, and thoughtfully laid out offering generous accommodation for four people which is beautifully furnished and maintained. The lanai is very large offering a great escape from the sun, and wonderful views of the ocean... A lovely spot for sundowners!
Overall a fantastic stay.... And well positioned for beaches, Kona and visiting other points of interest(of which there are plenty) on the island.
A big thank you to Gerry and Mary Lou.
As a retired maintenance contractor I was impressed by how well the home is maintained. Also, new carpet had just been installed in the two bedroom suites as well as wooden floors in the large common area. There is no better place to watch the gorgeous sunsets than from the covered lanai sitting next to the pool! There is a shopping mall right down the hill with all the amenities you might need. 5 minutes away are beaches where you can snorkel, boogie board or surf. turtles and fish galore! You don't even have to leave the Keahou area if you wish, it's all there. I would definitely return and will recommend this location to my friends! p.s. we saw a gecko or two, which is part of Hawaii, but did not see any cock roaches! Thank you Mary Lou and Gerry for providing such a wonderful place in Hawaii!
This my second stay at this location! The reason is: the covered lanai, pool right next to it, make the perfect location to sip a cocktail and witness the most beautiful sunsets night after night. Suites on opposite ends of the house are great if you are two couples. This visit owners had carpeted the suites and installed wood floors in the large common area. A nice little shopping area is right down the hill. Beaches about 5 minutes where you can snorkel and see my favorite -turtles! I found the home very clean and maintained! I would recommend this rental to my best friend!
