A True Retreat
Lovely spot. Very clean with tons of thoughtful touches. Kitchen very well equipped, plus board games and books, as well as some beach gear. The indoor-outdoor flow of the main living area and the porch isn't fully captured by the pictures and make this spot unique.
Beautiful home - great amenities
We loved this spacious home! It’s everything you could want in a vacation rental. Loved the beautiful view and the pool and Jacuzzi. It was very convenient being close to downtown Kona, snorkeling and the beaches. We highly recommend it!
Beautiful home with an okay view
The house is beautiful and very clean. It is so much nicer than the pictures show. The only bad thing is that there is quiet time from 8 pm-8 am. Just sitting on the lanai having our coffee at 6:30 am our first morning got us a note on the front door about neighbor complaints! We are in our mid 50's and are not loud people. Imagine being in Hawaii and feeling like you have to be confined to the inside of the house during those quiet hours, or be very careful to be at a near whisper. There is no way children or teenagers would do well at this home, no matter how well behaved they are. Otherwise, the house was great. If quiet is very important to you, then this is the house for you.
This is a VERY quiet neighborhood - with many retired people in their 80's and 90's. This is made very clear in both the terms and conditions, and on notes and letters in the rental. This group was not up "just having coffee at 6:00AM in the morning" - THEY WERE LOUD people in their 50's! This is not the 6 Motel or La Quinta with cars starting up and stereos cranked up - and folks yelling where to put the suitcases. If you respect the neighbors, you don't have a shouting match in the morning on the lanai. Having TWO neighbors complain withing 10 minutes of each other indicates that they were VERY disrespectful of a very special place where people enjoy peace and quite that is rare on this planet. Imagine owning a house in a very special quiet neighborhood only to have a group of VERY loud people come in, scare off the morning doves, and disrespect the morning silence. Too bad if they feel offended by being asked to keep their noise levels THE SAME OR LIKE THE SURROUNDING PROPERTIES. If they did, they just might notice some of the small and wonderful things in Hawaii - like the sound of the surf, or the sounds of morning birds like the cardinals. NO, they scared them all away, and there is no way they could hear the surf. By their LOUD behavior, they offended far more people than what was in their group. They did not 'listen' and hear the morning. They do not understand aloha and respect for others. Blather on. Enuf said.
Amazing stay for my wedding!
We loved this house! It was clean, beautiful pool, back patio, deck, landscaping, plenty of parking, such a nice neighborhood and a very short drive to the beach! Well worth the money!!!! There were 8 adults and we all fit comfortably. My fiance and I stayed in the master suite, plenty of room for all our clothes and wedding attire.
Another couple upstairs with a detached full bath. Downstairs,
two groomsmen in a room with two full sized beds a little fridge sink and private bathroom (everything a hotel would have) and a straight shot sliding glass door to the pool. The room next to that has all the same except its a king.
It has a beautiful spacious kitchen and full sized fridge upstairs perfect for our two week stay. One trip to costco and walmart and you'd have plenty of room to store and cook it! Me not being much of an ocean swimmer, I loved the pool. I spent more time in it than the ocean! And had an ocean view!
This is where you want to be
I cannot stop raving to my friends, family and coworkers about this place. We were traveling with 3 other couples to attend a wedding in Kona. This made the perfect getaway from all the hectic wedding activities.
Convenient location right smack dab in the middle of the places we needed to be. Super super clean, very nice linens and bed things.
Loved the outdoor deck where we could rince the beach off and the ability to do a little laundry so we could pack light.
Didn't realize there were hosts nearby until our last night, you wont know either unless you need them.
A thank you Jeff and Janet for stocking the refrigerator and making our stay to pleasant. If ever we have the chance to come back to Kona, we will be staying with you! Aloha!
Home away from home!
We were so pleased with our stay at the Kona Retreat! The property is beautiful and easy to access. Plenty of parking (you will need a car if you stay here). The accommodations were lovely, everything we could possibly need was at hand. We arrived to a stocked fridge and beautiful views of the sunsets! Jeff & Janet were so friendly and helpful in helping us decide what to see and where to visit on the island. We want to return with our children and this is where we will stay if we do!
