Guestbook comments from the manager

We were a party of six adults vacationing on the Big Island to celebrate my retirement. From landing in Kona, to getting our rental car to settling into Hale Honu, we had a smooth and wo derful trip. The instructions for entering the house were easy and without complication. The garage door opener didn't work...batteries? We ended up figuring out a routine that worked just fine for us. The first floor didn't disappoint- the views were stunning. We saw wales, dolphin and great schools of fish. The sunsets were simply spectacular. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Just like my kitchen when guests put things away, we searched a bit to d what we needed. It was actually a little amusing and we ended up finding everything....well stocked kitchen. Would recommend kitchen towels and aprons. As we had stopped by Costco and the grocery store on our way to the house, we had more than enough food for the week. The bedrooms were lovely...all with a balcony facing the ocean. Beds were super comfortable. Plenty of towels. Jacuzzi was a little difficult to get up to temp. We did a lot of driving around the island, went to the King Kamehameha Hotel- very nice. Huggos was a treat for lunch! Loved it. Don the Beachcomber for afternoon drinks and evening snacks. Kona Brewery, Quinns and Splashers great for a small pub crawl. Kona Inn has the best calimari!! Loved downtown. Markets were great and full of nice gift buying items. We would stay at Hale Honu in a heartbeat!!! Wish we could have stayed longer.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is in the absolute perfect location. Directly on the rocky beach (no swimming access but also no intruders who wanted to swim). We left the windows open to the ocean breeze night and day and it was divine. In the morning schools of fish congregated near the shore, and in the afternoons we often saw dolphins in the distance. All bedrooms faced the water which was nice. The kitchen was well appointed and the common space big enough to entertain. Now, the negatives. There seems to be a bit of deferred maintenance. The carpet in the hall way is nothing short of filthy and as it was the first thing you saw after walking in the door, it really detracted from an otherwise nice ground floor. The garage is cluttered (and contained two dead rodents), the deck furniture worn, the hot water faucet in one bedroom stopped working while we were there, there is lots of visible exterior rust which is probably a given in the climate but also detracts from otherwise a gem of a building, and the hot tub was not functioning (and not able to be repaired because of a holiday weekend and needing to order parts). A bit of sprucing up and more attention to management would make this place an A+. Our family very much enjoyed our stay.

We were able to watch a gorgeous sunset every night from the balcony. It was fabulous! And the house has everything you need to cook, relax, and enjoy. Very nice!

The home is very nice, location is perfect. This home fit our family of 8 perfectly. The large kitchen was a great plus. All the extra stuff, beach chairs, umbrella, snorkel, fins, ice chest. They had every thing for the beach and then some. This house will be on our list for future visits.

Reviewer Comments:

Enjoyed location as described online and worth the expense. House was very clean. However, there were many maintenance issues that detracted from what would have been otherwise a 5 star rating that could have been resolved with attention before our rental. Garage door was jammed close. Frig had stopped cooling & needed replacement. Many light bulbs out. Missing sink stoppers. A couple of missing screens (keep bugs out). One jammed window. Upstairs TV unresponsive to remote (TV was replaced). One ceiling fan did not work. To be fair, manager quickly addressed each issue, but should check maintenance issues of house between renters to be proactive rather than reactive for the rental rate being paid. Should also have informed us of the broken garage door in advance of stay, as that kept us from securing car each day, a key reason we rented this property.
