Amazing Oceanfront Home - BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my eighth time in Kona during Ironman week and my second stay at Little Piece of Heaven. This is hands down the nicest place I have stayed or seen in Kona. The views are simply breathtaking and the outdoor kitchen /dining area / patio is perfect for small gatherings of friends. The daily visits by the sea turtles were a huge bonus too. But the best part of this house is how well appointed and how much detail was given to the aesthetics. It's just a gorgeous place all around and worth every penny! I will always try to stay here on future visits and would recommend it to anyone (except during Ironman week - I want it then!).

Spectacular! We were enchanted by all the details of the property:the ocean, turtles, dolphins, beautiful sunsets, the aroma of myriad flowers, cooking and dining outside and of course the comfortable elegant indoor accommodations. Eagerly await the opportunity to visit again. Many thanks to hosts for making our stay memorable!

Gorgeous spot, great patio, sea turtles

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased that the place looks better even then the photos. So sweet and private and frequented by sea turtles. Need bug (gnats) candles at night, but the kitchen being outside makes for a really fun evening experience on the patio. Peaceful and beautiful and the owner's art and decor are very classy. A second bedroom and bath can make it family friendly, but it was just our couples getaway. The realtor was a little snippy with us, and we're very low maintenance so boo back at ya', This place is a real find.

Truly a little piece of heaven. Home was amazing and location great for the kids.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing. Highly recommended. The location right off the water made it perfect for the kids and us parents to enjoy the snorkeling. The outdoor living space was perfect to cook our few meals and enjoy the views of the ocean.

Beautiful property

We loved this house. It was very unique. The outdoor livingroom and kitchen were perfect. We had turtles everyday on the rocks, my kids loved naming them. It was such an amazing view. You could really hear the waves at night.

What an AMAZING house!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at "a little piece of heaven" was just that HEAVENLY!! The house itself is quite secluded, the house on one side is vacant, and the other way has a stretch of beach that's quite close to the road (with little or no roadside parking), and not much foot traffic (especially close to the house). It was very quiet except the sound of the surf, and some road noise (though we found this minimal). The bedrooms and bathrooms are very nicely appointed with the softest towels ever!! We were very impressed with the house and the beds and there were TV's at each bed and in the living area of the house (though we barely used them). The ouside space is where the house really exceeds expectations all around. The kitchen is gorgeous and well appointed (would have liked an oven, but made due without), with granite countertops and super spacious prep areas. There are 2 eating areas with comfortable seats, and a view of the ocean from every part of the kitchen/outdoor living area. We didn't find that there were really many bugs on the counters despite it being outside, but we are very clean and never left anything sitting out either. Absolutely loved spending time outside, and in fact that's where we spent most of our time. There are a few grassy areas to sit in the sun if that's your wish, and plenty of shade to keep out of the sun. There is a small rocky pebble beach just down the stairs where there were often turtles sun bathing throughout the day (this was quite a thrill). There were turtles around most of the day, either in the water or on the beach, it was fun to watch them feed. The water is a beautiful turquoise blue with plenty of rocks and coral for pretty spectacular snorkeling literally right outside your door. Getting into the water was a bit of a challenge, but once we got used to our entry point, it was very easy. There is a crescent shaped bit of rock close to the house but towards the road with a flat spot in the middle (towards the house side), if you watch the waves and see where it is, it's the easiest entry point. We spent endless hours swimming and snorkeling here without anyone else around, we had the whole bay to ourselves most of the time. There are a lot of fish in the water here, and I even saw an octopus!! There is also a really cool sheltered pond/pool out towards the water to the right of the house that was fun to float in (would especially be great for kids to play in). Durable water shoes are an absolute mus
