We were the first guests at this lovely, stylish and well equipped vacation home, stayed for 10 days and really enjoyed our stay. We booked last minute and Tina was ready with the paperwork and instructions in no time. Thanks again! The owners did a great job on this house, it is as new inside and outside. The owners description and photos represent exactly what you can expect and we thought about taking the home with us and use it at other vacation spots a bit closer to Europe ! We loved the big deck with the hottub, the new gazebo and the BBQ. Great ocean views. The road down to the house is steep but no problem, parking for two cars. No street noise as it is well down from the highway and very quiet at night. Yes it is about 40 minutes south of busy downtown Kailua-Kona and no restaurants or bars nearby. Fine with us, the Choice Mart in Captain Cook is 20 minutes away and a good place to shop, we had meals at home often because we wanted to enjoy the setting. Hookena Beach is 15 minutes by car and a good swimming and snorkeling place with restrooms, shower and a food stall. Very clear water. If you are lucky you can swim with the dolphins. We visited the volcano park, drove up to the top of Mauna Kea for the sunset and stargazing, spent time at the resort beaches, shops and restaurants in Kona and north of the airport. Played golf : Ocean course at Kona Country Club has great views, fairways and greens need some attention, Mauna Kea GC is a top site.
All in all: Great home and a great vacation.
