About Tim and Abbie Clark - Owners

We both love to scuba dive and snorkel, and Hawaii has some of the best areas to do just that. Which is why we picked this house. We want other people around the world to enjoy what we have discovered here in Hawaii and enjoy it, and our home, as much as we do.

Tim and Abbie Clark - Owners purchased this house in 2001

Why Tim and Abbie Clark - Owners chose Kona Coast

When we were looking for homes on the Big Island, this one stood out from the others we looked at. The location was perfect, not to far away from Kona and the beaches, but still has that country feel and the privacy that we were looking for.

We were getting tired of the hotel scene, too many people, too much noise and just not the privacy that we were looking for when we vacation. We wanted more of a home feel where we knew we could relax and recharge. And that is exactly what we found here. We know that you will feel the same way the minute you walk in.

The layout of the home and the size of the rooms just had the 'Wow' factor we were looking for. That's actually what we said as soon as we walked in was, 'WOW', so we knew it was for us. We know that you will feel the same way when you walk thru front entry door.

We feel at home here, after a long day exploring all that Hawaii has to offer. We love to scuba dive and snorkel, and we are just minutes away from some of the best diving and snorkel sites. And the when you come home there is plenty of room for everyone to relax and hang out, and the pool and hot tub are just the thing to have to make the end of the day great, while watching the sun set over the ocean, which is always so spectacular to see. Truly Paradise!!

What makes this house unique

The location of the home is perfect! Only a short drive (7-8 minutes) to wonderful pristine waters to snorkel, swim and kayak and in the same amount of time will find grocery, fruit stands, gas, and restaurants. Personally, we have enjoyed the peaceful quality of the neighborhood and home as a sanctuary, far from the busy-ness of the world yet convenient enough to hop in the car to pick up take-out, a movie or even an afternoon latte.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight really enjoyed our 10 night stay at this property. There was ample free parking for all 4 rental cars onsite, unlike a hotel stay in Hawaii where parking is often a hassle and an extra charge. The house well more than large enough for everyone in our party, was well stocked, maintained and clean. We flipped a coin for bedrooms and settled in. We ate most breakfasts and quite a few dinners in the home. Grocery shopping was done about 20 minutes back in Kona at the Safeway. One person in our party really enjoys cooking so we put him to work on the outdoor barbecue for some great meals. We were on the road everyday taking in the local sights and activities. You do need a car on this Island if you want to explore and see everything. The home is located on a quiet street so you hardly hear a car on the road. We spent most evenings relaxing out on the outdoor furniture on the lanai or down at the saltwater pool and hot tub. We found that the mini fridge in the poolside Cabana was handy as we filled it with our favorite beer and didn't have to send someone up to the house for refills. The home face west so the sunsets are beautiful. The frogs do start up at dusk and go through the night until sun up. Their singing helped put everyone to sleep. If we come back to the Big Island we will definetly stay here again.

This home felt so comfortable and so spacious. There were six of us with plenty of room to spread out and have our own space. The house was spotless, even the lanai and the cabana, which are open to the air! The kitchen was well-equipped and had the little things that you don't like to have to buy, like spices and condiments. It was great having all the bathrooms so everyone had a place to shower without having to wait. We also really liked the grounds. They were beautifully maintained and we enjoyed seeing mongooses (I think that is what they were) and the geckos and hearing the birds, roosters and coqui frogs. The frogs put us right to sleep! We tried some of what the island had to offer, like the volcano, a kayaking and snorkeling tour, and a surfing lesson. I highly recommend the Kona Boys for your water sport needs. We tried some of the local cuisine like laulau from Super J's and poke from Da Poke Shack. I also highly recommend breakfast at Big Rob's Bakery. It is where the locals go to eat breakfast, isn't nearly as crowded as the Coffee Shack, and has wonderful food and luscious pastries. In the evenings we broke out the poker cards and chips on their awesome poker table. My goal for our vacation was to relax and we were well able to do that in this house. We would definitely come here again.

Lovely home and location

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home for my family of 9 adults for 10 days. There was plenty of room and space for all of us. Loved the covered lanai on the back. This is a great location- close enough to Kona and beaches but far enough from all the hustle and bustle. We were able to explore all of the island from here. The house is well taken care of and is in a beautiful location -- more tropical than the Kohala coast area. We would definitely rent this home again. Thanks Tim and Abbie.

Excellent property and location!

  • 5 of 5

Easy drive to many beaches, hikes and harbors. Did the FairWinds snorkel tour and two days of sport fishing. Visited Pu'uhona O Honaunau Park, Volcano, Diving cliffs, Kona and more. This was a great home base and couldn't ask for better accommodations. All necessities are provided to make your stay feel like home. Our party of nine had a great time and would do it again. Thank you Tim and Abbie!

This house is overwhelming. It met and surpassed every thought I had.

Location was great, and so was the house. From the pool to jacuzzi to the well stocked house, me and my family didn't want for nothing.

Pots and pans, to cups and forks, to even some complimentary beverages, this house was fully loaded, and clean!

I would stay here again, and I would recommend to friends, family, and to strangers!

First time trip to Hawaii - will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved visiting Hawaii, and enjoyed staying at Tim and Abby's home. It is very well cared for, incredibly spacious and really has everything you could possibly need! Our family rents homes frequently for vacation, and this one was one of the best equipped houses we have visited. Everything you could ever need and more! The home is in the country, so it is a little bit of a hike to Kona/Kailua. Plan for this if you are going on any excursions, etc as the traffic here is an adjustment! One of the residents that we met referred to it as the "Kona Crawl", which is accurate. There are plenty of great places to visit nearby, though, so you have lots of options. Hookena Beach is amazing! It was our favorite by far and very close. We tried the Coffee Shack and the Kona Cafe for breakfast - also awesome!

We had our close friends and neighbors with us on this trip, and there was plenty of room for all. We have three boys, they have two, and all of them had space to hang out, play and swim. Really wonderful property. We will definitely be returning to Hawaii, as we fell in love with all that it has to offer!
