Comfortable and convenient for Ali'i Drive attractions

  • 4 of 5

The property was comfortable for our family of 5 adults and 2 children. Finding the property was a little tricky, as the street off from Ali'i Drive did not have a noticeable street sign. But once we found the street, things went smoothly. We appreciated being able to connect to WIFI, but could not figure out how to play a DVD (there were a number of DVDs available). The location is very good: easy to find a beach for snorkeling, close to restaurants on Ali'i Drive, and a good starting point for many sight-seeing adventures. The property is low-key, nothing flashy, but comfortable -- and quiet. Good choice for a family vacation.

Clean, new, rental

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property. Relatively new construction with nice furniture, bathrooms, and kitchen. No view of beach or water(but that didn't really matter to us since we left early and came back late). The place is quiet and serine. Somewhat difficult to find and get to. A gate was locked so my wife had to find another route.

Beautiful stay

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I am rating 4 stars instead of 5 is because when we arrived the downstairs bathroom had been used, the evidence was left in the toilet and the TV in the living room works but, theres something wrong with the screen and the cable was not working downstairs. The TV wasn't a huge deal so we didn't contact anyone for it because there was really only maybe 2 days where we had some down time at the house so we just used our netflix account on the tv. It took us a minute to figure out the AC system but the house was lovely. The bed in the master bedroom is super comfy, its a sleep number bed so you can adjust it which was great. The location was perfect, safe, quiet street, and not a far drive at all to a beach and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Aloha, We are so glad you love the house, the neighborhood and the sleep number bed! We have just gotten a new TV so there should not be any more issues with the screen. The housekeeper was notified of your comments and assures us that she will pay more attention in the future. We hope you will come back and stay again on your next vacation to Kona!

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!
