If you're visting the Big Island in a main search of relaxing at the nice beaches and getting your feet wet....this location is no good. Rent in Kona and Kona only!! Trust me!!!!!! Me and my girlfriend came from Oahu to the Big Island on 5-19-2011 to 5-24-2011 to do a little bit of exploring. If you are looking for a relaxing, out-of-the-touch-world type of vacation..this location will work for you. We both had no service on our cell phones... Couldn't figure out the internet, no searchable wifi connection. It really wasn't a big deal so didn't ask the owner about it, but we were completely out of touch in the "world" so to speak. This house is amazing. Everything is very tastefully decorated..CLEAN..just nice. I felt right at home from the moment we walked in. Bob Riley was extremely helpful from the moment we landed to the day we left... he suggested a great waffle house and gave us directions to the place. The thing we noticed about the Big Island...and Bob even mentioned... EVERYONE gives the directions as "go down ten blocks... turn a left at the stop sign. Take your first right, go down another five streets" - well you get the point... Thats how they do the directions over there..so if you are not good with that and your planning to use your GPS... Ask for the physical address. I will say, when we landed in Kona and drove to this place..about 3 hours away... yeeup 3 hours away (really not a bad drive though so don't stress because you see a lot on the way ... well depends what direction you take too.. there is three ways.. left ... or you can cut right through the middle... or take a right. We took a right) .. we visited kona beaches.. then worked our way down to the black sand beach (not amazing) and then finally made our way to the house at like 8PM ... we arrive in Kona at 6AM. Yeaahhh.... Anyway Bob had left fresh fruit. Fresh Milk..soy and regular which was PERFECT for us. I like regular she likes soy -- bob didn't know that though. He left us pancake mix, and coffee. Both Brand New!! This place is just nice and very peaceful. You will love it!
