Love the outdoors, animals and people. The beauty of Hawaii always astounds me. I want to share my beautiful estate with you, so you can see the beauty of Hawaii. We strive to keep the place immaculately clean and well equipped so that you will have a wonderful vacation.
I come from a large family of 27 people. My family goes on a family reunion every year. I know how difficult it is to find a good place and get everyone to agree (LOL).
Tina Butler Kemper purchased this villa in 2004
This home is at the perfect elevation (not too cold, not too hot). In Kona, temperature is not dependant on season, but on elevation. At sea level it's a constant baking 90-95. Here at the 1500' level it's a comfortable 80-85 during day, and 70-75 at night. King Kamehameha had his Royal Gardens planted up here so he could watch his gardens growing as he fished in Kona Bay. It's lush, green, peaceful, comfortable. Truly paradise.
True 'Old Hawaii' tranquility, temperature and peace. You will feel relaxed and vacationed and never want to leave.
We were a family of 12, ages 5-67. This was a wonderful base to start out each day and end each night. We were very happy with the rooms, the location, the views,and of course the owner who was very helpful. There is enough space so if you wanted you could spread out and enjoy some quiet time, but you could also all hang out together..especially on the wonderful lanai. Everything in Kona is close, 20 min to Costco, Safeway, Walmart and of course some nice snorkelling spots. The following isn't complaints, just things you should be aware of; the pools are not heated, but the kiddie pool was warmer so thats where the kids spent most of their time. This may be different in the summer time. The roosters referred to in other reviews are noisy and they start in the middle of the night marking their territory by crowing. Bring ear plugs or just wait a couple nights and you will get used to it,mostly. There are ample kitchen supplies and condiments and the owner has extras that get left behind, like our sriracha sauce. I'd also recommend Google street view the drive from the airport as it is fun and twisty, respect the speed limits. It cools down nicely at night so no a/c is not a problem. We had a wonderful vacation in part because of this wonderful property and owner, and her cute "little" dog. Aloha and mahalo.
We used the beautiful home as our base with two of our children, their spouses and two teens joining us. We had breakfast and dinners together most days and then each family pretty much explored the island the day taking advantage of the variety of things to do that suited their ages. We all loved the macadamia nuts and fresh avacados on the property and appreciated the help from the caretaker on finding the nuts and providing a little flour one evening to cook our dinner. The farm animals were delightful, even the roosters once we got used to them. We loved eating on the lanai and taking in the beautiful views. The home was just as pictured and the beds absolutely comfortable. The pool table got a lot of use, there were great a.m. and afternoon walks and runs. It was a wonderful place to spend peaceful family time together...we have many happy memories. Mohala,
We had a fabulous time in this gorgeous house.
We are 11 friends & family, ranging in age from 40-75. We had plenty of space and loved the pool table. The beds are very comfortable and the house was immaculate.
Thank you, Tina, for recommending Alfred to tour us to Green Sands Beach! That was a memorable day.
We visited Kona for the first time and would highly recommend these accommodations to everyone. We have never stayed in a vacation rental that offered so many extra luxuries. We usually like to spend every second at the beach but it was so hard to leave the house as we were so relaxed and the grounds are beautiful. We completely lost track of time and experienced real Kona Aloha Spirit!!!
The beds were the most comfortable that we have ever slept in away from home. Everything was very clean and well equipped. We enjoyed walking up the hill at night and listening to the beautiful birds. We also loved sitting on the lanai and watching the sunset. If you want to experience relaxation and peace you will LOVE this property. Thank you for a wonderful vacation. We plan to come back to your property very soon!
This was our first big family vacation of 10 adults and 4 kids. This house had more than enough room for all of us. My son is in a wheelchair and was able to easily gt from room to room. He enjoyed being able to easily get to anyone/anywhere. Tina was wonderful and even did food shopping so we had supplies for our arrival. The house has everything. A shed full of beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkels, flippers and water shoes for all. Clean. Our favorite part of the day was enjoying dinner on the lanai all of us together watching the sunset and the stars. We could not have asked for more. I wish we used the beautiful pool more but we were always. Tina-thanks r making this a vacation full of memories in your wonderful home. We hope to return someday!
Our family of 8 adults and 3 children had a dream vacation staying in this home. The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The owners were on the property and very helpful with directions, tools, even clothing when our daughters luggage didn't arrive. The home was well suited for kids, and Tina provided a toddler bed, porta crib, and even a walker for the infant. We all enjoyed the goats, especially Clyde! Because of the cooler temperatures we didn't use the pools often, but did enjoy the use of the hot tub several evenings. There is so much to do in the area, our two weeks flew by! We would definitely recommend this property, and hope to return for another stay ourselves in the future!
many Kona coffee farms in the area to tour.
