This property is managed by Waikoloa Hawaii Vacations, LLC

We believe you will enjoy this rural part of the island.   Please be aware this property is in the rainforest and it is the tropics. It is very likely that you will encounter Local Hawaiian Critters, the larger rainfall in this area makes it green, lush, and pretty, but also it brings out the Local Critters.

Because this beautiful and unique home integrates the natural lava landscape into the home and the setting is rural Hawaii we share space with the Hawaiian Critters.

One great aspect of this area is guests really feel like they are in nature and they are getting away from the city.

South. Burlington, Vermont

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and the location--perfect for exploring the southern end of the Kona coast, with stunning views down the coast. If you want ready access to Kailua town, this isn't your place. If you are looking to get away, this is it. Lots of beautiful places to explore, all within easy driving distance. The house is very comfortable, with well-appointed kitchen and great decks on on all three levels. If allowed, we would have rated 4.5 stars--a few minor issues detracted from what otherwise would have been perfection.

Delightful views

  • 4 of 5

One thing about this house is that it is large and has great views of the ocean - especially on the very top level. The house is 3 stories with 2 bedrooms located on the very top floor where the best views of the ocean can be had. You walk out of the bedroom onto a spacious deck and the view is truly amazing. The main level is where the kitchen and living room is located - it too has a great view and a nice circular deck. Both the kitchen and living room area is nicely designed for comfort.

The only downside to the house is that the very bottom level of the house is built directly into the exposed foundation. This is pretty cool to have but, unfortunately, it lets a lot of the insects from the ground into the bottom unit of the house and this is where the 3rd bedroom is located. There are a lot of millipedes that crawls around the floor and bed so I would not recommend using the lower level of this house. The driveway is also extremely steep but this is common for houses in the area. This house being built on the hillside is what gives it such amazing views but also challenges. If it wasn't for the millipedes and insects on the lowest level I would have given the house a 5 star.

Still, my wife and I really enjoyed this house. It has great views and the owners left a few snorkel and swimming toys in the garage that you can use. Very thoughtful. I recommend the house if you are looking for amazing views.

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Hawaii, and my husband and I agreed that this house was the perfect setting for it. The views are indescribable, the house is beautiful, clean, and well-equipped all around. It may have been a bit of a drive from the airport, volcano, etc. (not terrible however), but considering we are generally not "big city" fans, and this location kept us out of the heavy traffic areas (unless we decided to drive through it intentionally), it was perfect for us. If we are blessed enough to ever return, we would definitely stay here again. Mahalo!

Slept with one eye open.

  • 3 of 5

The house is exactly as pictured, very beautiful. Location is pretty remote. Nothing within walking distance so depends on your goals for your vacation. We traveled a lot everyday. But was a great way to see the island. We stayed for 9 days. The house was overrun with millipeds, a few centipeds. Truly had to kill over a dozen each day in our lower bedroom alone. Each evening on our return my husband would try to kill any he saw before I went to the lower level. The house manger responded to our concerns but the exterminator said that the process he used to kill them would not take effect for 2 weeks. We pulled the bed into the middle of the room thinking the worms would not get in the bed, still happened. One might one landed on my eye brow, and one was on the pillow. Truly slept with one eye open the entire stay. I had to keep my sandels on the night stand so I could put them on before my feet touched the floor. When we left there we checked into the Hilton on Oahu and slept for 3 days. If it were not for the other couples we traveled with, we would have left. The rock walls in the lower level moved with so many millipeds. I give it 3 stars as it was Hawaii, the view outside was great.

Wonderful Home with Amazing Views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the house for 5 days and had a wonderful trip. The house was clean and the kitchen was wonderfully equipped. The view is spectacular.

There is no air conditioning in the house and some days can be pretty humid, but, thankfully, the nights cool down and we slept comfortably for the most part. Because of the humidity, the rooms can smell a little musty until the evening breeze picks up. The lack of A/C is really the only thing that kept me from giving the house 5 stars. When one of the smoke alarms started beeping, the property manager got someone out the same day to change the battery (since it was too high for us to reach).

You definitely need a car! This house is about an hour from the Kona airport, an hour from the marina (if you are going diving), over an hour from Volcanoes National Park, and about a half hour from the town of Kona. We had a rental car and didn't mind the location at all. Where the house is situated feels like a rain forest and the mosquitoes can be voracious but the house was supplied with mosquito repellent :) Only about 20 minutes away there is an amazing spot for snorkeling called Two Step (by a local - I can't remember the actual name of the park).

We would definitely stay here again!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 days and had a great time. We had an issue with some big ants behind the fridge that was taking care of quickly. The snorkeling in the areas around Captain cook is awesome. We went down to Honaunau Bay also called 2 step and snorkeled with dolphins and there were lots of fish. The house was very nice and the views from all 3 levels were beautiful. We would stay here again. The drive way is steep but not a big deal after you drive up it the first time.
