Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house in South Kona. The photos online don't do this place justice! It was extremely well-stocked with supplies - everything from grocery supplies to beach chairs/towels/boogie boards, etc. Had we known about the snorkeling equipment we would have left our six sets at home and avoided the luggage fee.

The only negative was no A/C, but this was only uncomfortable a couple of nights, and we went in the hottest part of summer. Plenty of fans (both ceiling and stand alone).

Wonderful home with everything we needed for our stay

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful home. It is well stocked with everything you need for a vacation. Tina and the caretaker were super responsive when the new washing machine broke and found an alternative option for us while waiting for the part to arrive. They came and met the repair person so it didn't interrupt our plans which was their concern. We had two families of four staying and the kids had a great time snorkeling and boogie boarding at the beaches between here and Kona. Plan to drive 15-30 minutes to those beaches but take your time and enjoy the drive, lots of coffee stops and a beautiful drive along the way. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful home ! Fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

This property is like being at home. Everything you could want or need is furnished by the homeowner. If you like to cook every night while you are there the kitchen has everything you need for a 5 course meal. All of the furnishings are beautiful and very comfortable. Sitting outside every night on the Lanai watching the sunset is amazing. I was there on a ladies trip and throughly enjoyed our stay. Kudos to the homeowners they take care of their home wonderfully. I can assure you next time I am in Hawaii I will be staying at this home.

We had a very comfortable stay at Guava House. The owner and caretaker were quick to respond.

  • 5 of 5

The view was fantastic, the nights were peaceful and quiet. The house was spacious and well equipped. We enjoyed all aspects of the island. The owners and caretaker were very quick to respond to a pump problem. Fixed within 24 hours.

We enjoyed the unusual beach at the bottom of the hill. (Pebble Beach)

It was a perfect location and House for our family. We stayed a month and got to play at the ocean and beach and see many places. We really appreciated the sunbrellas, beach chairs and swim fins. Bring your own snorkel mask. It is hard to leave and hope to come again.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Totally loved our fourth stay at Hale Kumu Kai. New landscaping and shrubbery, including the orchids on the lanai, set the tone for changes made throughout the property. The fresh coat of paint in the interior and new hardwood flooring on the stairs and second floor landing give the house a more intimate feel. The new decorations in the kitchen added some freshness to the space above the cabinets. Absolutely loved the small touches that keep the house bright and cheery. The lanai provided a comfortable outdoor space for hours of entertainment, from taking in the views while enjoying a morning cup of coffee, to watching the geckos in the evenings. Returning to Hale Kumu Kai was like seeing an old friend after a long separation. A huge thank you to Tina for allowing us to enjoy your house for another year. We hope to make it back to the Big Island and Hale Kumu Kai for another memorable vacation.
