Large home in a quiet neighborhood
The house was very spacious, perfect for a family vacation and was close to various locations on the island to explore. It was an easy drive to the beach for snorkeling and playing in the ocean. Having access to the beach equipment was a bonus.
Perfect property for family travel
Our family with two young kids (5 &1) spent a week on the Big Island and this property was a perfect basecamp for adventure. We were able to explore all over the island from the south point (go to Green Sands beach!) to Volcano Park and Hilo to the east as well as up north to Kailua-Kona, Hawi (go to Sushi Rock for the Harvest Roll) and Waimea to the north. The location was perfect for us. The house itself is very accurately described. Clean, open plan with room to move around inside and on the lanai. The view will truly take your breath away. We spent many nights dining outside and enjoying the sunset from the lanai or down the hill to Pebble Beach (just a 3 minute drive) at the bottom of the sub-division. Would 100% recommend to friends that travel to the Big Island. There are a few small local restaruants, cafes and fruit stands within 10-20 minute drive and pretty much anything retail, grocery, dining you could want within 30 minutes. It would be perfect for a small family (we were 2 adults and 2 kids) or 2 couples (4 adults).
Mahalo from Minnesota!
Fantastic home with a lovely view. Easy drive to activities.
This is a clean lovely home with an amazing view of the ocean. It was an easy drive to great snorkeling and beach play. There is a great fruit stand just down the road and groceries in Captain Cook. We had a fabulous time here.
Darren and Jenn have a wonderful house! The house is very comfortable and the view amazing. As with any vacation, there were a couple of issues, but Darren and Jenn were very attentive and got everything corrected, which was excellent.
It is a very quiet neighborhood - and about a 40 min. drive south of Kona, but there are several beaches nearby to keep you entertained. The house comes with plenty of beach toys, chairs and umbrella's which was nice.
The house does have a long-term renter on the ground floor ohana - which is totally separated from the main house. He's a great guy and will even share fresh fruit on the railing!
Darren and Jeff - thanks for sharing your great house and working so hard to make my vacation enjoyable.
Spacious home with a great view,big porch. All in all great value for families/groups
My wife and I stayed here 2 weeks with our infant daughter and another couple and their teenage daughter. We enjoyed the spacious house and great view from the porch. The house is in a very quiet neighborhood, and is nicely furnished. Parking two cars in the back is easy, which is important, because you need to drive every time you leave the house. There is literally nothing within walking distance. Steep driveway looks scary at first, but is a cinch to drive once you get used to it (we drove a Suburban).
What we did not like was that there were quite a few ant traps in the house, which our daughter (11 mos) wanted to play with!
Lovely clean home with great view
My wife and I had a very sweet stay here. While it was more bedrooms than we needed we didn’t feel like the house was too big.
We particularly enjoyed the wonderful covered lanai with large comfortable chairs and big table. There are two almost new hammocks there as well as a great grill.
Most of the items in the house and the kitchen are new or in good condition. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in and we were happy to find a few basics like mustard, mayo, rice, salt and pepper. The knives were sharp, the dishes were plentiful and the dishwasher worked great.
When we first arrived it was hot and stuffy at about 80 degrees. Once we opened all the doors and windows with screens and turned in all of the ceiling fans it was very nice.
The bed was ok. The shower had a beautiful view. The sofa was pretty comfortable and sitting in the big open space with a distant ocean view was charming. We had a very relaxing time here and would happily return.
There is a wheelchair symbol on this property. While it wouldn’t be suitable for someone who is confined to a wheelchair (one step and a lip going into the house, regular tub with shower without handrails and regular toilet (not extra spacious with handrails) it is excellent for folks who cannot climb stairs and want something easy to move around in.
For us the location was ideal. We wanted to go to South Kona Fruit Stand and Place of Refuge multiple times and both very within 10 minutes. We did not want to be in the touristy areas so this worked out. We did go to Downtown Kona, Kealakakua Bay and other places that were very easy to get to.
