great location!

  • 3 of 5

We had a great stay! The house is super clean, and comfortable. The only complaint is that the communication wasn't very accurate. The bicycle is rusted, and has two flat tires. There is a closet full of snorkel and rafts, which isn't mentioned, and when I inquired, I was told to bring/rent my own. I could have saved a lot of money, since I had to rent for 7 people. Also, there are no condiments and outdated spices. Besides that, great location, close to the beaches and downtown!

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you for your review. Past guests have left some snorkel gear etc behind and of course anyone is welcome to use it, but we do suggest renting your own to make sure you get the right type, size etc for your needs! We do not leave any opened condiments in the refrigerator as a matter of cleanliness, but the spice rack is there as a courtesy for guests to use if desired. We are sorry that it wasn't to your liking, but we are very glad that you found the home enjoyable! Mahalo nui loa! First Island Realty

Nice and clean, well appointed and decorated

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us stayed for five nights in mid July and the place worked out well. Lots of amenities that we used including some of the snorkeling equipment and the boogie boards. There were folding chairs for the beach along with a small foam cooler, beach mats, a couple of pairs of surf shoes and a variety of sizes of snorkel fins. Inside the house the kitchen had a lot of storage containers, a spice rack, and cooking utensils. AC was nice to have, we had a bit of a heat wave while we were there. There's no sofa sleeper any more, but there is a nice inflatable queen bed that I preferred anyway. The Internet stopped working but once we pressed the recessed reset button on the back of the modem, it was good. When I booked, the listing said it was a 5500 sf house, but that is the lot size. The house is about 1319 sf according to zillow, (but zillow says it's 3 bath when it's really 2 1/2) but it was enough space for us. Hopefully the listing will be corrected soon if not already. Overall a great experience!

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our stay in wonderful Kona! The beds were comfortable and the home had all the comforts of home. Just a short walk from the beach and very close to all the shops and flea markets. We will definitely stay at this home again!

The Perfect Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5


This was our first real vacation in 18 years, and our first ever trip to Kona-Kailua Hawaii. When we arrived at this beautiful home in a gated community, it instantly felt like the perfect vacation home away from home. All the amenities one needs on a day to day, plus this place has A/C. It was clean, eloquently decorated. Minutes away from beach access, close to town and shopping, and not far from all the amazing boat tours at the Marina. So much outdoor recreation to do, amazing places to dine and lots of different aspects of the Island to explore. I'm officially hooked on Hawaii and will be back to stay at this lovely home on our next vacation there.

Beautiful home...and still feel like a local!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us came to experience the Big Island for the first time, and if possible we'll book this same home again. VERY close to great beach access...two blocks off of Ali'i drive (the main drag in town), nice amenities such as cable, wifi, laundry and a fully stocked kitchen. TWO full baths to get the crew up and ready early...plenty of parking. So much better than the 'hotel/condo' experience. We really felt close to everything and connected to Hawaii in a way that the 'corporate landscaping' experiences of the resorts just cannot match. We came home after 11 days but left our hearts in Kona. We will be back, and this house is the perfect base of operations.
