Beautiful, relaxing home in a quiet neighborhood close to town

  • 5 of 5

Helen’s property is absolutely gorgeous! We had such a wonderful and relaxing stay during our week in Kailua-Kona. She has everything you need, the house is nicely decorated and very clean. We loved seeing the different visitors every morning while we enjoyed our coffe on the lanai. I would definitely recommend this property for your stay, you won’t be disappointed! The bananas, pineapple, cookies and sweet Hawaiian bread we such a nice surprise. Thank you Helen!

Beautiful home and area!

  • 5 of 5

This home was very nice. It had all of the things we needed along with a delicious pineapple and treats when we arrived! It is close to stores and places in town. Helen was wonderful to work with and checked on us shortly after we arrived to see if everything was ok. The only draw back for us was during our stay it was a little warmer then usual and it would have been nice to have a fan for each room, being there was no air conditioning. Leaving the windows and front door open did help slightly with a small breeze.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had all had a lovely time in Kona. I wanted to mention while our rooms have ceiling fans we do have an extra stand fan for use in the house. With the trade winds here in Kona it usually keeps the air cooled down. Sometimes perhaps it takes a little more time to acclimate to our Hawaiian temperatures. I always suggest leaving the windows and door open to allow the breeze through during the day and night.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay. It was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed. The pineapple and macadamia nuts that were left for us were such a treat. Because this house is at a higher elevation, it was very cool and breezy, and because it is fairly rural, it was wonderfully quiet. It was still close to everything we wanted to do. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, and I urge you to give it a won't be disappointed.

Beautiful Villa in Kona

  • 5 of 5

Large and spacious villa just 10 minutes drive to the beach. The villa was in a very quiet neighborhood. Lovely patio and huge backyard behind for the kids to play. 3 full bathrooms made it perfect for a family of 8. Very well equipped kitchen and spacious bedrooms. Tastefully decorated. Owners were very helpful. We ran out of gas in the cooking range and Mr. Eric stopped by to change it. We loved the fruits and huge loaf of sweet bread that were left as a welcome gift for us. Everyone enjoyed the ping pong table outside. Want to visit Kona again just to stay at this villa.

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely place to spend a vacation! The house is clean, contemporary, and in good working order. There are no random weird furniture pieces or knick-knacks that you often find in vacation rentals; this feels like a home. There is decent outdoor furniture and a working grill to help you enjoy your time outside. It is far enough from neighbors to have a country feel and the yard is much larger than shown in the photos. The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans, dishes, appliances and condiments for those who wish to cook at eat at home.

The location was perfect for my family. It is a short drive to town (Kailua), but away from the noise and traffic. It's also a great home base for exploring both north and south from Kailua, with a great variety of beaches and activities within an hour's drive. The owners were easy to communicate with, and they graciously allowed us to check in a few hours early.

Two minor additions that would have improved the experience for us: trimmed vegetation to allow for a (far) ocean view, and some books/information about local history, flora and fauna. Also, the ubiquitous Hawaiian fowl are definitely alive and well here, so be sure to bring your earplugs! That said, it was a wonderful experience overall and we would definitely stay here again.
