About Rhonda

I have thoroughly enjoyed living on the island of Hawaii since 2002 and selected this destination after extensive traveling which included home exchanges in many countries.

To live everyday in total excitement and contentment with what the day has to offer became my mission.

Water quality and accessibility for swimming was at the top of my priority list.

I thank the Universe each and every day for allowing all of my life dreams, and more than I ever was able to imagine to come to fruition.

My passions are swimming, coffee farming, growing tropical fruits, vegetables, and flowers, as well as creating jams, jellies and liqueurs with the fruits of my little farm.

Operating a Guest House on my property became a dream that I am proud to see becoming a reality. I find it a total honor to live on this piece of paradise and feel totally compelled to share. What a great playground!!

I believe my success is based upon my guests enjoyment during their holiday. It is my desire to assist each of my guests in experiencing Hawaii in all its glory.

I welcome you to come share my most favored place in the whole wide world.

Today is the Best Day of the Rest of My Life. Come make it yours.

I want to Thank each and every one of my guests who have written such outstanding reviews on my behalf. Thank you all for your support, encouragement, validation, and your part in my dream coming to fruition with such wonderful memories and experiences. I has been my total pleasure to have shared such good times with each and every one of you.

Rhonda purchased this house in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay at Rhondas house very much. The views from the living room and the loft were outstanding!

The house is very clean and has everything you need - even a swimming pool.

Rhonda is a very attentive host and offered us so many extra information and equipment (like snorkeling gear). The breakfast, that was provided for us, included everything from fruits, bagels, toast, yoghurt, tea, coffee etc.

There is parking space right infront of the house.

We would recommend this accommodation!

The home was very well maintained and the host Rhonda was very knowledgeable about the island and suggested many worthwhile sights. We had a great time and would stay here again.

Amazing weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

This property is a beautiful country home, just a short drive from Kona. The room was clean, comfortable and had a lot of amenities. Rhonda was a great host and provided a lot of local knowledge to plan activities. I highly recommend staying here and hope to visit again soon.

Kein schöner Abschied!

  • 3 of 5

Es handelt sich um eine sehr schöne und saubere Unterkunft mit herrlichem Ausblick. Die Launen der Vermieterin trüben diesen Blick aber leider etwas: mal bekommt man selbstgemachten Kuchen und Gelee gereicht und es werden einem frische Früchte aus dem eigenen Garten angeboten und am nächsten morgen wird man kaum begrüßt und man fühlt sich einfach nur fehl am Platz. Die Vermietung erfolgte inkl. Frühstück und es wurde in den Emails bei der Buchung immer angepriesen, dass das ihr Weg sei, den "Aloha-Spirit" zu teilen. Das Erstaunen kann dann am Tag der Abreise: da wurden wir von der Vermieterin beim ins Auto steigen nicht wie erwartet freundlich verabschiedet, sondern aufgefordert, uns an den Kosten der Lebensmittel fürs Frühstück zu beteiligen. Wir und ein anderes Pärchen, das ebenfalls an dem Tag abgereist ist, waren sehr verwundert über die Art und Weise der Ansprache. Was uns aber zuvor schon während unseres 12tätigen Aufenthaltes gewundert hat, war, dass über sämtliche Gäste gelästert und hergezogen wurde, sobald sie das Haus verlassen hatten. Sehr schade!

Owner's Response: I was extremely shocked and saddened by this guest's review. The guests were informed that I am not operating a Bed and Breakfast. I do my absolute best to accommodate all of my guests. I made many attempts to communicate with the guests who constantly ignored me using their language of origin, but were able to speak perfect English when requesting personal favors such as requesting me to run numerous mail services, locating bike rental services, and many other personal favors which I kindly accommodated. Many house rules were not adhered to and I felt totally taken advantage of with their usage of my personal food items in massive proportions. Perhaps she was embarrassed upon her departure that I kindly asked her if she had replaced some lost and used items she had promised to do, which left me totally perplexed at her accusation of slander. Each guest, host, and home is a totally unique situation, but I would not recommend this guest to other hosts who might potentially receive such a nasty review after all the consideration and kindness they were provided during their stay. I believe these guests would have been better suited to have chosen hotel accommodations rather than a personal home.
