About John or Marcia Braunroth

My wife and I lived in Las Vegas for thirty years and decided it was time we left the desert for the tropical beauty of the Big Island. We are grateful and happy every day and wish to share the beauty of old Hawaii with you.

John or Marcia Braunroth purchased this house in 2006

Why John or Marcia Braunroth chose Kona Coast

From the moment we drove through the gate and saw the vast ocean view and well manicured lush properties we knew we found our new neighborhood.

We wanted to be close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. This property and location fit perfectly.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy being close to the water yet not having the ocean spray on our windows. We love the layout of the floor plan with the master bedroom on one side of the house and the second and third bedrooms on the other side. The kitchen and dining area is spacious and plenty of room in the living area. The interior is designed with Tommy Bahama furnishings, comfortable sofas and chairs and tasteful accessories. And of course the fabulous pool, gazebo and the covered lanai's makes for your own private resort. A dream house we look forward to sharing with you.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Kamilo House for a week in July with our grown children and had an amazing time. The kitchen was very well stocked with cookware and treats and the outdoor area, barbecue and pool got a lot of use. John and Marcy were very helpful in helping us plan our time in Kona. We would definitely stay there again.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of seven and Kamilo House was paradise! The grounds are beautiful and well maintained - even better than the pictures. We had so much fun shelling all the coconuts onsite and having fresh coco juice.

The house is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a family stay. We cooked everyday and never came short of anything - from cookware to cooking condiments.

Always a plus when the owners greet you and are warm, inviting and helpful with any needs. It was like staying at a friend's house. Thank you John and Marcy ! We will be dreaming of coming back. Until then ...

Owner's Response: It makes us so happy to know you experienced and had fun with everything we have to offer. You really made your time 'Hawaii' time You were quite the artists with painting coconuts and then getting the benefits of the fruit and juice-picked in the back yard!. You are all welcome back anytime with Aloha

Well and good

  • 3 of 5

General impression was really well and good ... we do enjoy our stay. Some points/comments for improvement which we seem are also necessary.

1. The centralize airconditioning much cover only the living room, kitchen and dining. The bedrooms becomes uncomfortable during the sleeping time because maybe some aircon ducting toward the bedrooms are either clogged or small.

2. An outdoor sink must be put up. If eating will be done outdoor by the pool, it will be beneficial on people going in and out the kitchen and sink by keeping at opening and closing the door.

3. A standby pump for the swimming pool is a always a must. We were not able to utilize the pool for three days because the pump conk out. The filtration of the water was compromised.

Overall it was a thank you for the hospitality os the owners John and Marcy. It has served our main purpose of being in Kona.

Owner's Response: We found your review very interesting especially your points. It's too bad they were not discussed during your stay 1. Most people when visiting Hawaii are grateful that A/C is included especially at no extra charge. Along with the ceiling and floor fans being provided uncomfortable sleeping is something we have not heard from another guest 2. Sink on the Lanai next to the the kitchen is not anything we have in mind soon. However there is an outside shower! 3. A pool pump is not an item that we typically have as a spare. It was late Friday when it failed and unable to be replaced instantly however no reason your family couldn't have enjoyed for the next two days of swimming and playing with pool toys The new pump works beautifully We are truly sorry if you were inconvenienced in any way As far as our review having you as guests ...quite astonishing We thought you were lovely people ALL of you and were so surprised at the condition of the house when you left. Very of the worst things was the chocolate or blood stain left on the new chair and then food left in the crock pot and unmentionable stinky items in the frig, dirty ashtrays all over, etc Maybe just a suggestion or point. Try to show more respect for someone's beautiful, clean home. Aloha

Everything a Family Could Want in a Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

From the very beginning, John and Marcy were incredibly accommodating to our group of two families with small children. They truly went the extra mile to provide us with the perfect home for our stay.

The house was very clean and well-stocked. The pool came with many toys and floats, enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Our trips to the beach had us using the beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and cooler that are thoughtfully provided by the hosts.

The neighborhood in which the house is located is clean, quiet, and safe.

I've been telling all of my family and friends to take a trip to the Big Island and rent this house. It was absolutely wonderful, and I hope to go back.

Wonderful getaway!

We stayed at the Kamilo house for 11 days and had a great time in Kona. The house itself was perfect, especially the pool area - we spent most of our time out there! Can't wait to come back.

We took our grown kids and Sweet grandson to Kona for a well deserved family vacation. When we first arrived at the house we were literally blown away at how the house and surrounding property were even better than expected. How often do pictures make things look better than they really are? This property and beautiful home are more than you would actually expect. Amazing to say the least.

My husband and I had a difficult time leaving the property to go out anywhere because it was like our own piece of paradise. Just such a beautiful and peaceful place to call home for ten days.

The home owners Marcy and John were more than accommodating and willing to do so much for us to make our stay in there beautiful home memorable. Lovely people. We hope that we will meet again.

Thank you so much for your friendship and hospitality!
