Aloha Lorin and Terry,

We got in after dark last night and woke up this

We know we will love it here!

My wife, Terry, and I have been to the Hawaiian Islands many times. But, after visiting the Big Island we knew it was the place we would like to retire. We have four grown children and 3 grandchildren. We built this house as our retirement home, not just a vacation rental. But, before we retire and move to the Big Island we would like to share our Kona Paradise beach home with others.

Lorin Fluent purchased this house in 2006

We fell in love with the Kona Coast and built in rural Kona Paradise because of the relaxing feeling we got while vacationing there. The people are very friendly and it became our home away from home. We believe that Pebble Beach, just steps away is our own private beach. Most of the time, we are the only people on the beach!

We relax on our lanai and count the whales as they breach (in the months of December to March). We very often see young whales following their mothers. It’s hard for us to decide what direction to travel when spending the day exploring because it’s beautiful going north and spectacular heading south. You can see beautiful beaches, snorkel, and kayak. Take a trip to Volcanoes National Park, and visit the many waterfalls along the way. You will never be bored. And if you enjoy amazing coffee, you are in the right place! You can smell the Kona coffee roasting during a leisure drive into town.

GREAT SOUTH KONA LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
This was our first trip to Kona and we were very glad we stayed in this home. The location was great for us. The drive down & up the property made for fun entertainment every time, the views were awesome & the landscape breathtaking. Cute & quiet neighborhood and private beach about 5-10 walk from house or minute drive down. The owners have thought of everything you would need during your stay, from beach towels, umbrellas, and coolers down to a water jug to bring along for fresh water rinsing while you are out! We hung out to watch the sunset everyday and was able to leave the doors open to the lanai all night since it was fully screened (brilliant!). They really did a great job on this house and it is a great get away from it all.

PERFECT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late in the evening. The description does warn of the steep hill which is one mile long off the main highway. Don't worry, your car will make it up! When we walked into the home, which had the lights on for us, it literally was a dream come true. You do have to walk up about ten stairs to get to the main level of the home.The kitchen/living room are simply beautiful. The lanai is simply outstanding. The view is incredible, and plenty of chairs, etc for lounging. The home had all the small items we had forgot at the store coming in. Four 3 gallon containers of drinking water were there for us. The beach is about a five or ten minute walk or short drive, and in June it was absolutely divine. Not to mention the ample supply of masks, snorkels fins and towels, and the outdoor shower. the We cannot think of anything more the home could have. We have recommended this home to others, and we cannot wait to come back.

Thank you Lorin & Terry for the use of your beautiful home.

A REALLY NICE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
A great place! We like it quiet and this home in South Kona is just that. Clean, well maintained, a nice layout for our family of five.

One comment -- it is in SOUTH Kona, so it is about a 40 minute drive to downtown Kona. Not an issue for us. But for those who like the nightlife and wanna be closer, just note it is a 40 minute drive south.

We used this home as a launching point for all of our activities on the big island: hiking, boating, beaching, everything.

We had a great time!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
Helpful hint: Recently opened Mamalahoa Bypass Road which connects to Alii Dr. cuts about 10 minutes off the commute to Kailua Kona. There is no traffic and the drive is beautiful and peaceful, hugging the shoreline.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my husband, 2-year-old daughter, mother and step-father. We all LOVED this property. In fact, after our 6 night stay, we moved over to the Hilo side for 3 nights, and we were all so sad/instantly nostalgic for this home. It's charming, absolutely clean, and makes you feel at home. The views were incredible and the screened in lanai was the best part. Not only was it airy and offered gorgeous views, but my daughter was 100% safe hanging out there, and everywhere else in the house. It's clear the owners understand the needs of families with members of all ages. Additionally, the kitchen was stocked, and we took full advantage of the snorkel equipment and boogie boards downstairs. Pebble beach at the end of the road was our favorite sunset location -- such a unique spot. We watched two whales very close to shore one night. We also enjoyed tons of other beaches, and simply fell in love with the Kona side of Hawaii. I know we'll be back! The beds and sheets could have been more comfortable, and the downstairs room was without a bathroom and really would just work for older/teenage kids or a single person, but it's hard to complain when everything else was perfect. I was initially concerned about the remoteness of the home, but ended up finding the location convenient to all spots on the island -- truthfully we could have stayed there the whole time (and wished we had) and done day trips to the Hilo side. Thank you for an awesome vacation with many, many memories. We all have little doubt that we'll return.

KONA PARADISE IS TRULY PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Had a great stay with our kids and grandkids. The house was very nice and well suited to our needs.The photos did not do justice to the beautiful home and setting. Everything was nice and clean and comfortable. We could hear the ocean at night and sometimes hear the whales.Would highly recommend to anyone seeking peace and quiet with proximity to wonderful beaches

WOULD BE BACK HERE IN A HEARTBEAT

  • 5 of 5
I well up in tears when I think of this house. Tears of joy and longing to come back. I look at the photos from the listing again, and I want to cry cause I miss this house so much. I rented this place for my wedding, and I had my family and I stay at this house. During my early stages of wedding planning, I chose this house since it looked fairly close to St Benedict's Painted Church. In the end, it was a little challenging driving back and forth to Kona everyday and to the church due to the steep turns up and down the mountain. Nonetheless, the beauty and location of this place immediately relieves the stress of the 1-1 1/2hr commute of the days. Be sure to get there before dark, it could be a little challenging finding it. The driveway into to the house was also really steep! My dad did comment that walking up the steep driveway was not good for his arthritic knee. However, he did comment that if this house goes on sale, he would buy it in a heartbeat or even build his own vacation house next to it. The main living quarters are on the 2nd floor with the two rooms. My dad stayed in the room downstairs next to the carport, we left the main door open so he can use the bathroom at night. We felt safe. Very spacious, can really accommodate a lot of people. My communications with the owner Lorin, was mostly via email but was very responsive, nice, and helpful, not to mention the property's caretaker who was very nice on the phone and helpful as well. I also like that the bookings were through this website and not by mailing a check, etc. like other rentals. I think this house is perfect for family, fun girls vacation, kids. It's a place to stay to just get away from it all and retreat. The listing, description, and photos were very accurate. It was clean, well-maintained and nicely decorated. House is well equipped (movies, game boards, enough towels to last you your entire stay) and the pantry was surprisingly well stocked, may not even need to do groceries at all (however we did do a Costco trip, but left a lot of microwavable ready to eat untouched orange chicken in the freezer, enjoy future guests!). During our stay, the only thing that was lacking was actual sugar (there was artificial sweetener), but we got some and left it for future guests! My favorite place was the lanai, which was screened and just so perfect. We left it open to let the breeze in, no a/c needed at all.

You won't regret renting this house. Thank you Lorin, for letting us stay!!
