Your house is great and your back yeard is a heavenly sanctuary that I will never forget. We had coffee out there every morning in what felt like paradise.

What a wonderful vacation home! We were there 11 days and did not want to leave. The home and beautiful grounds exceeded our expectations...

If your nana had a Hawaiian house - this would be it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 4 adults, a 10 month old baby, a 3 year old and a 7 year old. This place is huge. We didn't use one bedroom at all. It basically has two living rooms, one upstairs and one downstairs which is great for multi-family stays. We brought our nanny to help with our girls and her and her fiance had the basement area entirely to themselves and we stayed upstairs. I loved all the local decor throughout and nothing feels stuffy about this place in any way. If you're looking for shiny, new, spotless this isn't the house for you. If you're looking for a welcoming, kid-friendly house where memories get made and moms can relax, pick Tutus. She has a lot of (oldies but goodies) great kid items (2 wooden cribs/mattresses, baby bath insert, booster seat, high chair) that came in handy. We used our pack n play poolside and had the baby in a crib in the master bathroom's closet area. Bring your baby monitors so you can sit poolside while they nap. The backyard is fenced and a little slice of paradise (we didn't leave our first day to do anything). There's a double hammock, a huge gorgeous tile turtle pool with a shallow (4 ft) and deep end, tons of outdoor seating, rafts, pools toys, a outdoor pool bathroom, etc... THIS POOL IS PERFECT. The yard gets some shade and some sun which was great for this family of redheads. The front of the house had a deck that runs the length of the house with green leafy tree cover, it's fenced and covered and was where we ate every meal. The kitchen had everything we needed, the appliances are older and the pans aren't the newest but they did the trick. We grilled every night (there are two gas grills on the property, the front and back of the house) to keep the heat down and to make the most of the amazing seafood we had at our disposal. The beds are all comfortable. We put a bed against the sliding door in one room upstairs so our young girls couldn't open and there's a door you can shut to the steps downstairs which was handy with a crawler. The downstairs had a little kitchenette/beer fridge for easy pool access. Find a place called Keiki Ponds if you have young kids it's the perfect Kona beach for you and you can go right down the street to Kahaluu Beach Park and snorkel in the morning during low tide with young kids and they can stand, look down and see tropical fish everywhere!! Kona is truly paradise and this house like home there.

Terrific multi-generational vacation

  • 5 of 5

7 of us spent a wonderful one week here: 2 grandparents, adult son, and daughter/son-in-law/ two young children. The house was perfect. Room for everyone to spread out, and lovely dining room and lanai to eat all together. The kitchen was well stocked and everything we needed was there - beach chairs, towels etc. We went on excursions every day and saw most of the key sights - what an amazing, changing landscape!!! Two of our group even went zip-lining. And every evening the kids played in the pool, while we watched on the wonderful pool chairs and relaxed. The kids also played in the pool in the morning, giving us a chance to get ready for the day. Two great beaches within walking distance. Farmers' markets nearby, and grocery stores as well. Once you are in the house, you feel secluded from the hustle and bustle of the touristy areas nearby.

The only downside - which has nothing to do with the house, but you should be aware - is that no matter where you go for the day, the last hour back seems to be bumper to bumper traffic. Particularly anywhere that puts you near Kona. However, if you factor that into your trip and take a deep breath, once you get "home" all is well.

We all highly recommend this rental. The owner is in California and is easy to deal with, and there is a local person for the house and another for the pool. We never needed either. Thanks!

Spacious, Homie and well Located

  • 5 of 5

I took my family of 9 including grand kids to TuTu's house. We mostly hung out on the lanai and around the pool. The kitchen was also a hot spot as we all cooked and had our meals on the lanai. Beautiful surroundings with the muffled sound of the waves crashing a block away. Well accommodated with the feeling of a Hawaiian decor. Highly recommended this place to all. Thanks Don

Loved It!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this spacious home, there was 7 of us and we had plenty of space. I loved the wrap around balcony upstairs I felt like I was in a tree house. The location was superb, an easy walk to one of the best White Sand beaches on the island and a quick 5 minute drive to the best snorkeling on the island also it is centrally located to great local shops, grocery and restaurants. Another great luxury was the beautiful yard and pool. Look forward to returning soon!

Perfect Sorrundings

  • 4 of 5

TuTu's beach house is not placed on the beach, as the name indicate and that's perfect. With the unstoppable queue of waves hitting the beach, the silence at Tu Tu's was only interrupted by the neighbor telling us to "please be quiet" when the poolside activity took place too late in the evening. A minor problem, to be honest. The garden is fantastic, with a big pool, a lot of gardenfurniture, enough space to rump on, and again, the silence you may want to enjoy when you are on a vacation.

We rented both floors and I think that is the best solution. Even though we did not eat one singel meal inside, the kitchen and livingroom on the second floor is of a better standard then in the first flor. All the bedrooms are of good standard. It is a laundry in the backyard which was great and dishwasher in the kitchen. The balcony upstairs was perfect for breackfast and late dinners, and off course just to relax on. All over the house was nice and clean, but I think some of the bathrooms, it has four bathrooms and the kitchen downstairs, soon need refurbishment. I recomend to rent a car, when the best grocerystore is about 5 km away, and it is great to have a cre to get around to different beaches. A lot of snorkling equipment are stored in the laundry area, which came in handy. I will definitly recomend this house, because the backyard with the poolarea and the garden is fab, and the location just of Alii Drive is the perfect base for a great vacation on The Big Island.
