Great vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

My partner, our little girl, and I stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was clean and comfortable, the kitchen functional and reasonably stocked with spices and condiments (and coffee!), the view from the porch SPECTACULAR. We really appreciated the quiet neighborhood filled with tropical flowers, the responsiveness of the owner, and the good quality BBQ grill (and spare gas bottle) that allowed us to enjoy the porch every night as we cooked dinner. It's been noted previously that the house is somewhat remote, and that's true - about 30 minutes to the nearest grocery store - but that wasn't a problem for us, we wanted to get away from the bustle of Kona. All-in-all, we had a great time and would happily stay here again. The only minor fix I can suggest would be to re-install the sliding screen door to the porch and to the second window in the main bedroom...we needed to keep all the windows open for ventilation and there are a few mosquitoes around.

Thanks for a great vacation, Laure!

Beautiful location, with the beach just down the hill. The houes can sleep 4-5 guests comfortably.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a house that will give you a great view of the ocean, this house will work for you. Very steep driveway, so park at the top of the driveway. The drive to the beach is 5 minutes. The beach is black round stones. A very beautiful place to watch the sunset.

Could be great place with a little work.

  • 3 of 5

Great location, awesome view when not hazy, mostly quiet neighborhood. Love the area, 25 minutes to all you need and great beaches. Mega exercise walking up and down hill to neat Pebble beach! House itself needs maintenance and better upkeep. Poor communication and no written documentation on how to depart. Email unanswered. No drinking water make sure to bring your own. Kitchen utensils poor. Had to buy skillet as these so worn no amount of oil could keep egg from sticking. Knives cannot cut a yam. Luckily had my own. Grill on deck was awesome even came with rat to clean up after meals. In owners defense they did respond to that and rat is no more! Bed was comfortable and plenty of fans so house does not overheat. All and we were comfortable and had fun trip!

Could stay forever

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal spot for our family of 4 to spend a few days. The location is close enough to Kona or Capt. Cook to be convenient but feels very local and removed from the tourist traffic. The view is as pictured - indescribable, you just have to experience it. The neighborhood has a small beach access at the end of the road or you're not far from any number of other places to swim or snorkel.

Overall it was an amazing experience.

Amazing relaxing vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for what I was looking for...Great location, set high up the hill with amazing views..The balcony was great, equipped with a nice barbecue.

Escape to your own private beach and swim with the turtles.

I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a true get away in your own private retreat.
