I enjoyed a week stay at Kona View Estate in August 2014 with my wife and two children, ages 12 and 14. The house is lovely, clean, modern, and really had everything we could possibly need during our stay. It is spacious and very relaxing to spend time both inside the house and out by the pool and Lanai. When we weren't traveling around Kona, we enjoyed lounging in the house, where we also made most of our meals in the well stocked and inviting kitchen and outside grill. It was really just a wonderful week on the Big Island!
As for our hosts, Randy and Atsuni were warm and gracious while respectful of our privacy. They answered any questions we had, delighted us with some delicious Cappuccino, and made our stay most enjoyable. Atsuni also does Rolfing and Gyrotonic body work in the downstairs gym. My wife worked with her for a separate but reasonable fee and loved the experience.
In all, we had a wonderful stay at Kona View Estate and would absolutely come back. It is important to note that the house is in Holualoa so beaches are a drive. Kona View is best for visitors who are looking for a relaxing stay that is close by but away from the busier parts of the island. Coming from the bustle of a big city, we were very happy getting away and enjoyed the relative quiet and the stunning views from our Lanai. We would head over to the Beaches, Volcano, or into downtown Kona but really cherished the serene beauty of this home. Our family certainly enjoyed a restorative and lovely week there. Thanks so much Randy & Atsuni, and hope to see you again!
