Amazing Rental House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for ten days and loved it! The property is beautiful and has so many different seating areas both outside, in the sun and shade, and screened in. The house had everything one would need including all beach and snorkel equipment, coolers, and kitchen items to cook. You really do not need to bring anything! It was also really nice to have a washer and dryer available. It got slightly chilly at night but there were plenty of blankets to keep us warm. The house is also nicely located only 10 minutes from Kona (get out of the noise and traffic), 20 minutes from 2-step snorkeling and has some great restaurants nearby. Check out Caffe Florian for breakfast and Sun Dried Specialties (both around the corner) for lunch and dinner--probably the best dinner we had on the island! We would 100% stay here again!

Amazing place and location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for two weeks with my wife and daughter. Its was exactly what we expected and then some. Great location close to everything, shops, restaurants, and more beaches then we knew what to do with. Perfect elevation to enjoy the cool nights and cool afternoon shade. We would get off the beach in the afternoon and climb on up to the cool elevation to enjoy the afternoon evenings.

Quaint quiet house so peaceful it couldn't have been any better. Everyone we ran into was so friendly. Even had a bowl of fresh picked fruit left on our doorstep one morning. What a great surprise and man that fruit was as tasty and fresh as it gets.

Evening noise wasn't too bad I liked it and slept on the outdoor bed every night, its the sound of the rain forest. Roosters will wake you up occasionally but that's anywhere they are all over the island.

Definitely coming back and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.

Mahalo Reggie for the great stay and say hi to Jessie and your cute little dog for us.

What a charming, tropical place!

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, everything works, it's large, it's private... if it weren't in such good shape I'd call it funky... it has a laid back feel and loads of the cutest geckos, but with all the amenities we needed. The frogs are really loud at night, so you might want earplugs... but they're also part of the exotic, tropical charm. For snorkeling go to 2-Step!

Owner's Response: Aloha Barbara, thank you for choosing to stay with us and getting the full Hawaii experience in our cottage. We are located near some of the best snorkeling that Hawaii has to offer, and 2-step is definitely one of them. We hope you'll consider again next time you visit Kona. Mahalo!

Remote location privacy guaranteed

Rented thus site for our honeymoon. It was perfect for our needs. The geckos and frogs were a welcoming committee and sang us to sleep every night.

Found out geckos like guava jelly. Lol

We didnt get to use the hot tub but once, unfortunately the mosquitos ran us off. This is not the owners fault, just a side effect of the humidity hawaii is currently experiencing.

We had a lovely time.
