What makes this house unique

Most beautiful beaches are within minutes of drive:

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were a large party of 9! Two families, 4 adults, 1 teen and 4 kids under 6! We spent 10 days exploring the island. The house was perfect! Before arrival Mei was in contact with me and was helpful with our trip planning. On the day of arrival everything went smoothy, Kathy the house manager was there to greet us and was always there if we needed anything. She was never intrusive, she even reminded us of garbage days and was helpful if needed. The house was exactly as pictured, no surprises! 9 of us were quite comfortable in the space. Mei had a portable crib set up for us as requested, which was nice to not have to pack! The beds were all comfortable and there was room for all of us to sleep comfortably. The house was stocked with many of the things one would need,soap,shampoo, hairdryers. The kitchen had many spices and cooking basics so to make our lives a bit easier especially on the day of arrival, before we had time to shop. With young kids we did lots of cooking at the house, and we never needed anything, it's all there. Pots,pans,utensils, I even baked a cake as it was our daughters birthday! Waikoloa Village is a small community north of Kona and is set around a golf course. A golfers paradise, we did not golf,but we did use The community pool and tennis courts. Mei has all the things you will need for a great day already at the house. Many beach towels, tennis rackets, beach chairs,pool and beach toys. We went to many of the local beaches and the house is close to some of the best beaches the island has to offer. Mei has a guidebook and many pamphlets at the house to help with your trip planning. We explored Mauna Kea, Hilo,Kona, Waip'o Valley and visited Volcanoes national park, all from the house,we felt it was a perfect home base. The house was safe and clean,located on a quiet cul de sac.We spent a lot of time on the Lanai and it felt like part of the house. Another bonus was the garage,you can hang up wet clothes and towles and the kids loved the ping pong table! Also the TV had Netflix, so the kids could watch a show in the morning while eating breakfast a small thing,but nice to have. It was a great place to call home on our trip to the big Island, we would highly recommend it, and would stay again!

A Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and enjoyable time in the Big Island with our family. The owner's beautiful cozy home is very relaxing and ideal to our group of 6 adults. It is everything we expected and more. Great location to everywhere we went, from beaches to the many sightseeing trips we did. This place is truly a home away from home. Mei is very helpful and replies quickly. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit and will surely get our 5 star recommendation to friends.

Spacious, comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Mei's beautiful home. The house is spacious, well-appointed, comfortable and in a great location for exploring the island and all that it has to offer.

We were a group of 6 (4 adults and 2 older kids) and there was more than enough space for us to do our own thing yet still be able to gather together at the large dining table for meal times. In particular, there is a lovely lanai looking over a pretty, quiet garden - ideal for soaking up the atmosphere.

The house is also well-appointed: the kitchen is large, clean and well-equipped; the beds very comfortable; there is a large laundry room; and there is lots of storage space including a walk-in closet off the main bedroom so you can unpack and make yourself at home.

Waikoloa is also a great location - the best beaches on the island are a short drive away and the road across the island has been upgraded and improved so getting across to Hilo (and on to Volcano) is much quicker than it used to be. There is a good supermarket and a few shops / restaurants in Waikoloa town centre, all of which are in walking distance to the house.

As others have noted, the house does back on to a road so there is some traffic noise but it didn't bother us much.

Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely recommend to others. Thanks!

Comfortable and well appointed, beautiful home and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Mei’s home is beautiful, with quality furnishings and a spectacular lanai overlooking a well kept yard. We enjoyed having our coffee out there and enjoying the many different kinds of birdsong and the warm breeze. We even had a wild turkey show up one morning. The massage table was an appreciated touch. We plan to return soon. Thank you for your hospitality!

Lovely tropical villa with plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

First let me give you a bit of background about my family and our expectations. We are a family of 8 with 6 of us being young adults, we live in a beautiful waterfront home in Canada. We are busy, love to cook, explore and play together. This home was perfect for us.

Although it wasn't beach front, we wanted to explore the island and the location was perfect: an easy drive to the beach, Kona and the southern coast, an hour to Mauna Kea, Ponolu Valley, Waipo Valley, and Hilo further to Puna and Volcano but all doable as a day trip. There is a fantastic little grocery store/plaza within minutes of the house. Of course we got most of of groceries at Costco but we made a daily trip to the KTA to get the smaller stuff.

There are 3 comfortable bedrooms and a queen sized hide-a-bed. The beds were comfortable...I'm picky and I'd give them a 7 out of 10. The bed linens are so soft and luxurious.

For a family of 8 we could have used a third bathroom but with the layout of the master bath and the outside shower we managed quite well.

The kitchen was very well equipped and very clean. I always travel with my favourite kitchen utensils and I didn't need to bring them out at all. There is plenty of counter space for food prep and although the ad states the table sits 6, it comfortable sits 8.

The very large garage has a ping pong table, clothes line, laundry sink and tons of beach paraphernalia...chairs, matts, boogie boards, flippers and lots of beach towels.

There's a nice laundry room off the kitchen and plenty of linens/towels in the closets.

There is a lovey covered lanai with lots of seating and a nice BBQ. The yard is small but there is a grassy area in a lovely garden.

The owner was very responsive to any requests and provided excellent details for checkin and checkout. The house is well maintained and the owner obviously takes a lot of pride in it. We really couldn't have asked for better.

The only negative about this property is the traffic. We come from a very quiet secluded area with absolutely no traffic. I'm sure that most people would find the road noise perfectly normal but it took us a few nights to adjust.

Comfortable Local Home

  • 4 of 5

We were here for 2 weeks and there were a few things “wrong” that could have been caught in a pre-inspection or post inspection by the property manager – ie: burnt out bulbs, broken shower head, dirty counters, broken screens, broken dvd, etc. Regardless, we reported them to Mei once we were back and were assured they were being fixed or on list to be fixed in 2018. Mei was extremely pleasant to work/speak with. We were not interested in being disturbed for contractors/Property manager to come in while we were there so we waited to report issues.

House faces cul-de-sac, but back of house faces the main street in/out of village so traffic can be “noisy” if windows are left open for both bedrooms. Note that only outdoor usable space is the lanai that faces street and Property Manager house. Lanai is completely covered too. Note for weather conscious visitors - House got a little muggy even with ceiling fans and box fans going as cross breeze is not an option with window layout and no AC.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay, but would not stay here again as we got tired of doing the 8 miles (one way) drive down the 1 lane road to the coast or up to the junction at 190 to do or go anywhere. We are annual visitors and prefer to be closer to Aneaeho’omalu Beach area – more time on beach and less in car. Location is 8 miles from Queen’s Market area (location of other restaurants/grocery store), 12 mi from Puako beach, 19 miles from Waimea and 25 miles from Kona airport.

House is well equipped with everything you can want though! Ping Pong table in garage, beach accessories available, etc. allow for all the comforts of home. Wild turkeys visits were the hit of our stay here!

Owner's Response: Hi Michelle, Thanks for your feedback of our property. we won't have known that the guest bath shower head was broken, and the light bulbs were not working until you told us. I wish you told our property manager so she could arrange a fix right the way so that you would have a better experience. Our plumber did fix the shower head within four hours after the problem was reported, and a new Blu-Ray/DVD player is in the house already. We take pride in providing a clean, comfortable & spacious home for our guests, and as our over 100 5-star reviews show (including 85 5-star reviews from other listing sites such as airbnb), most guests think we hit the mark (the three groups of guests came after your departure gave us 5-star reviews as well). We're sorry to hear that in your case, we fell short. While we do try to keep our home fresh and updated continuously. Some problem is hard to discover by visual inspection until guests told us. We'll keep trying in that regard, and appreciate the feedback. Our property manager Kathy and her husband Henri are such a nice couple that so many guests love. They do live across the street but with good distance. They always leave the complete privacy to guests and only offer help when the guests need. Many of our guests enjoy chatting with them to get tips about local attractions, since they both have lived on the island for more than 40 years. However, you don't need to interact with them at all just as you chose to do, and they respected that. Staying on the beach hotel is fabulous, but that doesn't come without a steep price hike. In our house, with a fraction of the hotel and restaurant price, family and friends can stay under the same roof and cook their own gourmet meals, and have all the extra space to unwind. That's why so many of our guests appreciate our house and don't mind to drive the few miles down to beach. Again, we value your feedback and will keep improving. I wish you a Happy New Year! Sincerely, Mei
