Words fail to describe the experience my family had staying with Karen and Tim. The accommodations were beyond my expectations and the Aloha Spirit was very much alive there. She has created an "Eden like" environment of exotic landscapes that epitomizes everything Hawaiian.
From the gorgeous sunrises filled with exotic birds foraging their breakfast from her orchard to the overwhelming floral bouquet every morning with Kona coffee on the lanai, this special place has created an indelible impression burned into our collective memories. My 92 year old mother and wife were both near refusing to leave when the day came to extract ourselves from this paradise. We will be back in few months and can't wait to see our new friends and experience the daily life within the natural world they have created. Truly a heavenly place on Earth. Mahalo...
Karmasu was absolutely the perfect base for our vacation on the Big Island. It is nicely located at a higher elevation in Kona for cool breezes and a spectacular view, and very private and quiet. It is centrally located for day trips to the beach, Volcano National Park, Kona town, the Saddle Rd. and Hilo. The house itself is quite spacious, beautifully appointed, comfortable for our adult family of 5. The master suite is spectacular. The crown gem is the kitchen!! Best equipped one we have encountered in any rental, with luxury appliances and a stocked pantry. With fruit and avocado trees on the premises, and Costco < 10 minutes away, and we were in cooking heaven! Thanks Su and Gail!!!
