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.

Mesmerizing view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home with our 3 teens and it was perfect. The house has ample space to allow everyone privacy but has a lovely living space for gathering as a family. Our girls who are both dancers used the vast outdoor patio spaces for choreography. The kitchen is well-stocked for cooking and the house is very clean and well-kept. Email replies to our questions from the property manager were almost instantaneous. The snorkeling in the immediate area is world-class, and there are wonderful little shops and cafes along the main highway to Kona. The neighborhood beach is beautiful and uncrowded with good swimming and snorkeling opportunities. I could have spent my entire vacation in the hammock on the upper patio. We would definitely stay here again!

Fantastic Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything it said it would be and more! It is in a fantastic location away from the busy city stuff but within driving distance of everything you could want to do. The extensive deck space was fantastic for enjoying the great view and there was more than enough seating for all of us. The home was clean and stocked with everything we could need. The beds are very comfortable and it was great that there were 2 master suites upstairs with their own full ensuites. We had an amazing vacation and would most recommend this home to anyone visiting the Kona area. It is a fair drive from the airport so you would definitely need a rental car, but it is so worth it!! Thank you so much for making our vacation memorable and we would definitely stay in this home again!!

Wow is the best word to describe this house, but it was also warm, comfortable, beautiful, convenient to beaches, well stocked and equiped and perfect for three couples who enjoyed cooking in the amazing kitchen (although there is no stove draft vent, what's with that?). The house has beautiful views, lots of windows and light, plenty of space, privacy, ambience, etc. Although the house is a bit far from Kona, we found this to be an asset in the long run, giving us more peace and quiet. There are numerous great beaches for snorkling nearby, which we took advantage of and used the available towels, ice chests, boogie boards, etc. The roads in and out are quite steep so prepare yourself for that. Also, stair climbing to all bedrooms is required. One great feature is the cement floors. You never hear anyone's footsteps. The beds are all king-sized and very comfortable. Each BR has a private, stocked, full bath. Wi-Fi is available, but not always working well, due to the remote location of the property, no doubt. We all LOVED the home, would not think twice about renting it again and most probably will in the future.

Fantastic house, location and views

  • 4 of 5

We just returned after a 1 week stay at the house and had one of the most memorable family vacations. Here are our takeaways:

1. House: The house is very comfortable and clean. The bedrooms, lanai, bathrooms are well equipped and artfully decorated. The views from all levels are priceless. We ate breakfast every morning on the lanai. The kitchen is well equipped with all amenities that you would ever need. The layout is great with enough space at all levels for privacy. There is even an office downstairs if you need a private space to make a call.

2. Location: The house is a bit of a drive south of Kona but we got used to it very soon. It is very quite there and very peaceful. A bit buggy in the evenings -- so bug repellent is recommended if you are having dinner on the lanai. Sufficient parking is available.

3. Views: There are 3 decks/lanai in the house providing 180 degree views of the ocean. We spotted whales several times off the beach. The sunsets are stunning.
