About Andrew Witherspoon

I am a Yacht Captain overseas and love returning to Hawaii whenever I can. The first thing I usually do is head straight down the hill to the beach. I spend a lot of time away from Hawaii and I miss it each day, especially the house and Waikoloa. What a great place to live or visit, I know you'll enjoy it! Aloha!

Andrew Witherspoon purchased this house in 2004

Why Andrew Witherspoon chose Kohala Coast

I chose this location because of the neighborhood, the cool evening temperatures, and the close proximity to golf, stores, and the beach. Its an easy drive up to Waimea or down to Kona with all the resorts, shopping and great Kohala restaurants being right along the way.

What makes this house unique

I love the pool and the private back yard. Great for entertaining or to simply relax. The kitchen has been completely remodeled with contemporary stainless steel appliances, ample storage, bamboo cabinets and a full compliment of cooking utensils, you won't be disappointed.

Better than shown online!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! This is the first time I have ever rented a house for vacation so I was a little nervous about how it was going to turn out. That all vanished when we arrived at the house!! The house sits in a quiet neighborhood just minutes away from the best beaches and restaurants on the island!! The house was very clean and well kept and had just about everything you would ever need or want! The second floor does get a little warm in the afternoon if there's no breeze but cools nicely throughout the evening. We will definitely be back!! Andy was very hospitable and only a phone call away when needed. Thank you Andy!!

Good property and a very responsive owner

.House is spacious and well maintained. Great backyard. Close to grocery and gas station. It's near some great beaches. Nice views of sunset on the upper deck. My family liked it.

Peace and Quiet in the islands

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Andy's house for Christmas. There were nine adults in our party and while the house says it sleeps 8-10 I would cap it at 8 unless the last two are younger children. Having said that, the house is clean and comfortable and located in a quiet neighborhood. The trees planted in the backyard give one their own private oasis for sunbathing or swimming in the pool. You really feel like you're in your own special place when your only companions are budgie birds and geckos! :)

As far as the house goes, the beds are comfortable and the house is well supplied for cooking anything you want to cook. When something was not there that we wanted he responded to our requests quickly to make sure what we wanted was there. Andy is a nice guy who always responds to emails within 48 hours and really wants to do what is necessary for you to enjoy your stay.

Located in Waikoloa Village this house is situated perfectly for nice neighborhood walks and has a peekaboo view of the ocean. If you're lucky the moon will rise over the palm trees in the back yard and if you like to golf you're only two minutes from the course.

I would definitely recommend this house and hope you enjoy your visit to the islands.

Wonderful place to call home

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time here, there were 10 of us, 7 adults and 3 kids, and we had plenty of room. The pool was fabulous on those hot days,(not heated) but you really didn't need it...very refreshing. The house had many extra things to enjoy, such as, games, books, movies, pool and beach toys, beach chairs, etc. The only thing we missed was A/C, it was fairly windy at night, but it still would have been nice to have. Andy was wonderful to deal with, got back to us right away with any questions we had for him. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay! A group of 10 went and there was plenty of room to spare. Andy was great communicating and assisting with whatever we needed. We plan on coming back next year and we will defiantly be looking at this house again. Pictures don't do this house justice. Amazing location, if you like to be outside the crazy busyness of the big city and just minutes to beaches. This was well worth it!

Owner's Response: Aloha Brady, I guess we should try to get some better pictures :) There's been quite a few upgrades too since those were taken... like the big shade structures on the upper lanai and all the new lighting and landscaping. I better take your advice! Mahalo for staying in our vacation home...we really love it too! Cordially Andy Witherspoon

Great house with almost everything you need

  • 5 of 5

I say almost because it really had everything, except AC, which we quickly learned was customary for the big island. So I would still date the property 5 stars! It had a great pool, a nice house layout for the 10 of us, 7 adults, 3 kids. It also had a bunch of extras for the beach and everyday activities like boogie boards, a cooler, snorkeling gear, etc. Andy was also a great and responsive host

Owner's Response: Aloha Benjamin and thank you for your stay and great review! The weather was crazy while you were here that's for sure. We've had hurricane after hurricane come precariously close to Hawaii and seen the highest water temperatures in years! I was in Kealakekua Bay the other day and the water temperature was 84F, I've never seen it that warm. Along those same lines I'm sure the upstairs of the house was warm and I've made some modifications to our welcome packet to help future guests understand how to keep it cool. The good news is I don't plan to see this type of weather for a long long time. Mahalo for the great feedback and a hui hou! Andy
