I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
This was our third trip to the Big Island. Year 1 we stayed in a hotel. Year 2 we stayed in a condo. This year we decided to try renting a house--it was only slightly more expensive than a condo and still cheaper than a hotel. We will never go back to a hotel or condo for an extended vacation.
If you come to Kona to sit by the pool or on the beach, this house is not for you. If you come to Kona to experience the Big Island, this house is perfect. The house is only a short walk to Ali'i Drive or a quick drive or bike ride to restaurants, farmers markets, etc. The quiet neighborhood made it easy to relax and unwind in the evenings. The garage made storing all of our rented toys (bikes, kayak, surfboards, etc.) extremely convenient (no dragging them up stairs or worrying about damaging the interior of a condo). The house was in great condition with plenty of space to accommodate a family or group.
I would definitely recommend this house as a “base camp” for a great trip to the Big Island.
