We (family of 4 with two grown children) spent 9 days on the Big island, using Tina's home as our base. The home was perfect for us! Plenty of room for 4 adults, including 3 bedrooms with flat screen TV's and plenty of closet space, 2 full baths (with hair dryers), 1/2 bath, washer and dryer, fully equipped kitchen (regular drip coffee maker NOT Kuerig - good to know when shopping for groceries), comfy living area with big couch that easily seated all 4 of us, and a wrap around lanai that affords a gorgeous view of the hills and ocean. Cool breezes kept us very comfortable at night. Avocado and orange trees on the property were a nice addition. There are two gates to go through to get into the property - the first requiring a code which opens electronically, and another that requires someone to get out of the car and lift a very heavy gate - was glad to have our adult son along for this, but it seems that this gate was "fixed" at the end of our stay with a wheel at the base that made the gate MUCH easier to open! The snorkeling and beach gear provided (including aqua shoes, chairs, beach towels and mats) were great to have and worked very well for our needs! A good thing to know is that this home is located south of Captain Cook, and makes for an approximate 30-40 minute drive on a winding road to reach Kona. IF you like to go back and forth to Kona for activities, dining, etc. it makes for a pretty long drive. We were fine with this as when we headed out for the day, we planned accordingly with a change of clothes etc. The good news is that this places you closer to Volcanoes National Park and the Hilo area than accommodations which are closer to the town of Kona. In all, I would highly recommend this home next time you are on the Big island!

Beautifully furnished home with a gorgeous view of the ocean!

We had a wonderful stay at this home! The place was well equipped from the kitchen to linens to beach gear. After a long day exploring places, it was a peaceful haven to come back to and relax. The sunsets were spectacular from both lanais and we enjoyed seeing the neon green geckos each morning.

We are from the tropics and didn't mind that the house had no A/C. It would have been helpful though to have standing fans in each bedroom to supplement the slow moving ceiling ones to circulate more air.

It was a lovely, peaceful oasis on a wonderful island

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful family home. It was very clean, comfortable beds, and the kitchen had everything you could need. We made great memories with our family of six (2 adults and 4 kids aged 16, 14, 14 & 10) visiting all of the National Parks and lots of State Parks. As we are from Australia and can visit beautiful secluded beaches anytime we did not visit any beaches other than Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park to see lots of Green Sea Turtles. The owner answered all of our questions very quickly and was a pleasure to deal with. We would most certainly go back again and recommend this home to others. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Fantastic place in Ko Hawaii and fantastic owners.

It was everything the owner said it would be. We had at our disposal everything we could need for a fantastic vacation in Hawaii. The house is spacious on a nice property with lots and lots of privacy. The kitchen was fully stocked, the living space was very comfortable and there were lots of supplies everywhere ... it was home. Even beach gear was provided. They thought of everything. If you are ever in Kona Hawaii, call up these owners and just relax and enjoy your vacation.

We loved this home! It was clean and comfortable and we loved the lower lanai. We would definitely recommend this home! It was a little bit of a drive into town but we didn't mind that at all.

Remote and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

This rental property is very clean and comfortable. We loved the deck and the ability to have coffee and meals overlooking the ocean. The lower lanai is a great place to soak up afternoon sun, watch the sunset, and to store snorkel gear and wet suits after returning from the beach. The outdoor shower is a nice amenity. This is a very quiet location except for road noise that can start before sunrise. This wasn’t necessarily a bad thing since it caused us to get up to enjoy the sunrise and put on coffee. We had a really great stay and the owner was exceptionally good to work with and very responsive. Would we consider staying there again? Absolutely. It’s roomy, comfortable, and reasonably priced for the location.
