Utterly perfect

  • 5 of 5
House was clean, view stunning, the kitchen had everything needed for cooking, lanai amazing, ample space, tons of towels, washer/ dryer worked great, everything one could ask for.

Location serene, peaceful, quiet, safe, picturesque.

Beach below beautiful.

Completely chill. Possibly some of the quietest nights and most restful sleep I've had in years.

Hostess most helpful and gracious in answering my numerous questions.

Fabulous stay! So glad I stayed here!!!!

Stunning views, but average house

  • 3 of 5
The view and the lanai was all that this house had going for it...other than the location too! We fell in love with Kona Paradise! The snorkeling at the beach at the bottom of Kona Paradise was amazing! The beach may be a rocky, but at least you don't have to deal with the sand! We also enjoyed our mornings & evenings out on the lanai, in the morning taking in the beautiful ocean view and surrounding beauty. In the evening watching all the geckos play on the lanai! The house wasn't bad, but the carpets were dirty, the floors felt sticky and there was no soap for the showers. Would definetly like to stay in this area again!

Good Value

  • 4 of 5
We have no complaints. As the owner and others have noted, the house is remote - 45 minutes from Kailua, 20 minutes from most services. But it's only 8 miles from Hookena Beach. A little further north you'll find Two Step/Honaunau. Don't miss the Arch City coast hike there. Stop at the coffee/breakfast/lunch place at the nexus of Hwy 11 and 160 -- forgot the name, but the food is good, at the best price you're likely to find and the staff is excellent.

The ocean view from the house is remarkable. It's quiet (mostly), comfortable and if you're the sort who complains about the heat in Hawaii, at 750 feet up it's very pleasant. For what you get, the price is very fair. The kitchen works well, and is perfectly adequately stocked. There's a good bottled water supply provided -- don't forget there's a water catchment system, so mind your shower time.

Note that there's some construction next door; nothing too intrusive. Looked like they were finishing exterior work in February (2013).

If you're looking for sun at the house, maybe look elsewhere -- the deck is big and nice, but perfectly situated for shade. Do not stay here if you have trouble climbing; the driveway, like the neighborhood in general, is mostly vertical.

Could it be more comfortable; improvements made? Yes, at a cost, so adapt and enjoy. Aloha!

Quiet house with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time with the family here. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. The house has everything you need for cooking. We saw whales daily(bring binoculars). Access to good snorkeling and boogie boarding beaches is a close drive. It is a long ways from Kona so stock up on the essentials before leaving. The closest local grocery store is around 20 minutes away. If you like to be away from swarming tourists this is the place.

Fabulous house in Kona Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I would definitely give this property an "Excellent" rating. The owner was most helpful in arranging our stay, with good communications and thorough information in advance of our stay.

It was very clean and thoroughly prepared for our two-week stay in May 2012. Everything worked, the kitchen was well stocked with various miscellaneous condiments, and we couldn't have been happier when we stepped in the door. The linen closet had plenty of extra bed linens and towels (including beach towels). Although we didn't use most of them, there were lots and lots of beach toys and other beach items -- perfect for a family with children, large or small. There was even plenty of laundry soap with the washer & dryer downstairs. We didn't try the gas grill on the lanai, but plan to do so during our next stay at this property in August of this year. From the lanai we were able to see wild pheasants, mongoose, and geckos, and were blessed with beautiful flowers all around the property.

All in all, it was exactly as advertised, and the view from the spacious lanai was just like the photo. Having toured the property on a previous visit to the island, we came prepared for the steep driveway and rented an all-wheel-drive vehicle. It managed the incline (common in this area) without a problem, although there was ample parking at the top of the driveway off the side of the street. The stairs up from the driveway to the door didn't cause us a problem, but should be noted for potential guests who have trouble going up and down steps.

The house to one side of us was for sale and thus vacant during our entire stay. On the other side of this property there was a vacant lot. We rarely saw anyone in the area, although that may be due to the time of the year (May).

Local restaurants & stores are approximately 15 miles north of Kona Paradise, as this is not close to any town. There were numerous ones about half way between the property and the city of Kona, and Kona itself is about 45 minutes to the north. Two good public beaches are within 5 miles of the property. I don't recommend the "pebble" beach at the waterfront below the property -- too hard to navigate the tennis-ball-sized rocks there, although we saw some folks who were braver than we.

We highly recommend this property and will definitely being going back ourselves!

Very Nice Rental

  • 5 of 5
I found the home to be very nice and just as listed. The view is incredible from the lanai. It is 45 min from Kona but that was just what I was looking for. It is very close to some of the best snorkeling around. I will try and rent again in the future.
