Amazing Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I have to share your experience to all that reads this.

Zacks retreat is one of the best places to be removed yet close to everything in Kona- Kilauea. This gated community provided a safe haven for our family. The house comfortably has 5 bedrooms all with in suite bathrooms. Everyone got to spread out. The kitchen and main room are comfortable but most important are the big sliding doors to the lani and pool where we spent 95 percent of our time. From coffee thru after dinner drinks this was our hang out. The pool was magnificent. Be prepared for the best sunsets of your life at this retreat from the pool deck. Driving into the covered carport made us feel very welcome.

Not bad

  • 3 of 5

Nice house on a very! Private lot great for a big family. Downside not much close by in the way of really nice beaches for families traveled most days 45 minutes to the really nice places north. Pool was very nice attended to be on the dirty side owner sent a man to clean it but all they did was really throw some chemicals in it. The whole pool deck is porcelain tile from the edge of the pool all the way to the house a nice idea I’m sure when it was built but very dangerous we had several slip and falls while we were there. Overall experience was very positive but I would probably stay a little closer to some attractions like the volcano or the nicer resort Style beaches next time I go

Beautiful Sunset from Pool

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Zac for a wonderful time! Driving into your private road and entrance felt like we were driving up to our own personal resort. The layout of this property had so many areas for our party to gather or have a little peaceful time. Sunsets with pool lounge chairs area exactly as shown. Barbecuing was the easiest to feed our big group. And with the pool a few steps away our entire family and grandchildren loved the expansive pool from mornings till evening. Thanks for being so responsive to our questions and needs. We Loved the experience !

Memorable Stay - Excellent Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and worked perfectly for the 10 of us. Very private setting and we never saw another person besides the outdoor maintenance person. Home was clean and maintained. The private pool, ocean and mountain views were awesome. There was plenty of space for the 10 of us, and having 5 bedrooms w/bath allowed for plenty of private space. The home was as good as advertised and I would highly recommend it.

Great property!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and our experience turned out to be exactly as we expected. We would like to recommend few things- there are no given specifics to enter the property- like the gate code: one cannot access the property without the code! Swimming pool needs cleaning and attention! Also the house Ac wasnt turned on -it would be nice to be greeted with a cool place when its 83 degrees!
