Great time on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

Great time and great house for a large family like ours. reminded me of a Palm Springs motor Inn the way all the rooms opened up to the outdoor swimming pool. Quiet neighborhood and short drive to Sam Choy's that we ate at every chance possible. Thank you Tina for all your assistance and the extra mile that you went to to make sure our vacation was special. Your attention to the comfort and service made this a truly memorable and worryfree trip. Plus we loved all the geckos!!!!!!

Family Vacation 9/19/2010

  • 5 of 5

This was my retirement and family vacation...this house was perfect for all of us. The house has a great layout...lots of privacy for the bedrooms. The house had everything we needed. Loved the pool and the sunsets each nite were amazing. The location was great for traveling to Kona and everywhere else.

Would definitely love to come back here again.

Perfect time of year for Kona - Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

We chose September for our vacation because it is good weather in Kona and not very many tourists. We had a great time at A Perfect 10 house. The view is mesmerizing and the pool is wonderful for morning swims and late night swims after a day at one of the many beaches near Kona. We liked Kua Bay, which now has a good road to the beach. The house has got everything you need for a great vacation. It's clean, has strong wifi (we appreciated that muchly), and is well equipped. There were 8 of us in our 60's. We didn't miss AC because we were usually gone during the day and the trade winds were right on when we got home.

Thanks Tina for making our vacation!

Sorry to hear about the loss of your Neapolitan - George.

What a wonderful place to stay! The layout of the house was terrific for our large family retreat. There were twelve of us from ages 17-80. Everyone found some quiet space to relax and renew. The lanai was a morning and evening gathering place for all of us, with the most incredible sunsets! Beautiful bird songs in the morning to wake up by. Close to beaches and easy access to other parts of the island. I would love to come and visit again. Tina was easy to work with and responsive to inquiries. Maholo

"A Perfect 10", it was not! A 3 or 4 on a scale of 10, maybe.

  • 2 of 5

This property is in need of an pest exterminator, we checked out a day and a half early. The A/C was only for the basement which was very musty smelling and unacceptable. The description saying that you don't need A/C was very misleading. Plastic chair by the pool broke with my son when he sat in it. Pool was very nice and handy to use. Hot tub cover broken, and very hard to use, also it did not have chlorine tablets in it, and was not clean. The view was spectacular, the property wasn't. The design of the kitchen is open to the outside via a open hall window which means that insects, birds, etc. have access to the kitchen which was apparent. The geckos were delightful, but not in the kitchen. Instructions on the use of the property were very incomplete, until the day we checked out we did not know that there was access to the garage. The result was that we rented boogie-boards and beach umbrellas that were in the garage and that we could have used if we had known that they were there. We are truly sorry to have to rate this property only a two-star because it has great potential, and could easily be a five-star property with some tender loving care, pest control, and a good maintenance plan. Maybe our expectations were too high since we had just left a five star property on Kauai. MAHALO!

Owner's Response: We have signs in the house asking guest to call if there is anything that displeases them about the house. We did not hear a word from this this guest until now. They were 6 adults & 5 teens, staying only 4 nights. On the 3rd day, I received a text that said "We have checked out of your house a day and a half early. We decided to go to Oahu early. We know that there is no refund, that's understood. Dishes in dishwasher and running. Beach towels clean. Garbage in can in garage. Mahalo and Aloha." Upon inspecting the house when guests departed--the house was a disaster. It looked like 10 messy teens had lived there for 2 weeks instead of only 3 nights. The new plastic arm chairs with drink holder on lanai are very sturdy and difficult to break, unless kids are horsing around. We regularly bomb and spray the house for pests. We have a 4 person cleaning crew spend 4.5 hours cleaning, to make sure the house is always immaculate for our new guests. A simple phone call or text to me would have explained where the beach equipment was stowed. (In our description we say we supply beach equipment). Other guests have had no qualms calling or texting to ask questions of the house - and we always respond immediately. In the house description, it is explained that the house is very open, the basement has no windows, but is a good sleeping spot for kids and has an AC unit. Usually we recommend that the basement door coming up to the pool deck remain open to get air circulation in the basement. I surmise these teens became bored, as Kona is built on the side of an extinct volcano and to get anywhere you must drive. The Big Island is not easily seen in only 4 days. Please, if you find anything amiss at our home you can give our caretaker or Tina a call and we will attempt to correct the situation immediately. Please don't wait until you get home to let us know you had a problem. Mahalo!

Great stay! Had everything we needed for our vacation with 8 adults. We spent every night on the patio around the pool. It was a great atmosphere for our social group. The hot tub was a nice bonus after a cool swim.
