Great home with fabulous views. Nearby "hidden" beach was a real gem. We enjoyed our stay in this quiet and relaxing home. Nicely located between kona and volcanoes natl pk for easy access to both locations. Would love to return! Cheryl really took the time to answer all emails in a very short amount of time. Daniel, the house manager, was full of knowledge and gave great recommendations. My recommendation, stay longer than you think you want. You won't regret it!
Loved the house. Best place to stay in South Kona on the Big Island.Spend at least a week, you will be glad you did. Aloha, G&D
We've just returned from our third stay in the makai house and it is a perfect fit for us. We love its proximity to the sea, that the location is far from the tourist crowds, the quiet and dark nights. The house itself is ideal...comfy beds, ample bathroom space, washer/clothesline/dryer, beach towels, good kitchen provisions. Daniel is always warm, welcoming and helpful. Suzie is wonderful as well. They both contribute much to make our stay comfortable.
If away from touristy Kona is a must for you and you don't mind driving a bit for groceries/gas, then the makai could work well for you, too.
Thank you once again, Cheryl. We'll return. Aloha.
I stayed in the home for a total of 7 days and i enjoyed every second. One of my favorite activities was the Swimming home about 400 FT from the front door. Where you walk onto the ocean and it is a great snorkeling spot and. Also you are in the perfect location to go to either of the two major cities on the island. The view from the deck is absolutely breath taking. in all i had a amazing and wonderful experience.
A truly relaxing experience! We needed time to regroup and reteam with the teenagers. It was not hard to sit around the lanai table after a bbq dinner to play games (provided at the house) and laugh together - a few boys vs girls challenges with ping pong and pool (I won't tell you who won because I don't want to hear the taunting again!). The boys golfed the girls shopped! The extremely clean house was amazing and comfortable with all the fully stocked amenities of home. Daniel is a wealth of information about the island - abuse his brilliance. Do shop for groceries prior to getting to the house; it is a trek to the house. Listen for the horn to signal for whales and use the binoculars to view them from the lanai. The geckos, whom I have named the "George Family" all have different markings on their backs. the one with three orange marking resembling a cats paw is Boy George - he is a mischievous one!
