We spend a week at The Kona Lighthouse. Our group was 7 adults and one 2 year old. Our family with the child stayed in the master bedroom where they had their own bathroom. Two couples stayed both in other bedrooms where they joined the bathroom. Our single stayed downstairs in his own little apartment.
Everything in the house was like it was in the web pages. No bad suprises at all. The Magic Sands beach was in the walking distance from the house.
The communication and the renting process was very easy with the owners. Our requests conserning the money transfer and everything else were fulfilled.
The renting experience, which was our first, was very pleasing.
We loved our week here! The home included everything anyone would need right down to the beach necessities. The owners went above and beyond our expectations. Highly recommend.
We were here for a wedding which was 1.5 miles away. The Magic Sands beach is in walking distance. The view and pool are great. The owners were very helpful and responsive. The garage has a supply of several things to make your stay comfy. Boogie boards, snorkeling gear. Thanks for all your help Wendy.
We stayed at the Lighthouse for the Ironman (a family member competed). The house is very well situated if you need access to Kona town. Also walking distance to White Sands Beach. And great sunsets. The house was comfortable - easily accommodated 8 people. Well appointed. Particularly liked snorkel gear and boogie boards in garage. The private pool, while small, was great to have. Wendy and Harry were great "landlords" - addressed our every concern. We particularly appreciated that they didn't jack up rates for the Ironman, which others do. Highly recommended.
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Kona Lighthouse property. The description in was perfect for planning our family vacation of my husband and I, 3 adult sons and 2 of their significant others. There was plenty of room for all of us and we loved the lanais and especially the pool when we had the rare time of not traveling to all the amazing sights on the Big Island. It's location was perfect near Kona and right across the street from a snorkeling beach and a few steps more to the White Sands beach. We also had a fantastic snorkeling time at Kahaluu Beach, another beach about a mile a way. Amazing Sunsets right from the upper lanai of the house.
We stayed in mid August and it was hot but we were usually sight seeing during the day and the bedrooms have air conditioning. The air conditioners are on timers that you can control. As a family we try to conserve so we appreciated all the conservation efforts in regard to the use of the air conditioners. There are also many ceiling fans and stand alone fans to provide air circulation. The kitchen was perfect and we cooked//grilled and ate many dinners on the lanai.
We explored both sides of the island and my only regret is that we did not book more time here. There is so much to do and it does take a bit of time to travel to the other side of the island and back .. so plan your trips to that side of the island with that in mind. We especially loved Makalawena Beach and Kikaua Point Beach to the north. We saw so many sea turtles in both locations.On the other side of the island, We went to Hawaii Volcano National Park and were lucky to hike out and see the recent lava flow into the ocean. Our other favorite trip was up to Mauna Kea to see the sunset and full moon rise!!
I would definitely recommend the Kona Lighthouse for any larger type of group who would like to stay together for a very reasonable price!!
