From the moment we arrived we knew we had arrived to Paradise. Not only because we were on the Big Island but because the house was perfect in every way. The house is so well kept, the house manager is so helpful and responsive, everything you can think of possibly needed was already in the house. We forgot to buy a few things at Costco on our way in and to our surprise the house was already stocked with anything we possibly needed. The vibe in the community is amazing! You can feel the love around you. Our family won't be staying anywhere else when we head back to Kona. The day we arrived back home to LA we immediately had people asking us how to book the house because of all the beautiful photos we had posted. Kona's sunset is gorgeous but not as gorgeous as watching it from the comfort of your vacation rental. One morning I woke up and looked out our window and there was a cruise ship in the distant water. The sites and sounds from the home are unbelievable. I wouldn't honestly recommend staying anywhere else. It was so convenient to get up, make up breakfast, pack lunch for the day and head out to our excursions for the day. And then coming back home to make dinner, have a few cocktails and not worry about driving or ubering anywhere. In fact we had a few friends that were staying on the island over for dinner and they all said they wished they would have rented the home before us. One morning I woke up and went for a light jog along the coast just one block from the house. I ran along the coast for about three miles and then returned back to the house and enjoyed a nice breakfast in the outdoor family room overlooking the ocean and community around me. We stayed at the house with four other couples and it was great how everyone had their own shower, their own entrance, their own mini fridge, and coffee pot. The most famous snorkeling spot in Kona is just half a mile away from the house. And Magic Sands beach which has the best sunset view is also only a block away. Downtown Kona is about a 5 minute drive away as well. The Luau we went to which was also amazing was only a five minute drive. Green Sand Beach one of only four of its kind in the world is an hour drive from the house with stunning views of the coast the whole way. I can't say enough of how amazing this house is. And how easy the process of renting it is. The owners are amazing! And the house management team are exceptional as well! You'd be a fool to stay anywhere else!!!
Heated pool for cooler days. Air conditioner would be nice. A jacuzzi for cooler days if not a heated pool.
