We loved staying here. It was beautiful and had many amenities with lots of outdoor living space and foliage. We thought the pool could have been cleaner (the home’s rule book said someone would be by to clean it weekly, but that did not happen. The pool vacuum also seemed to be broken or not working). The home’s rule book also read a little like ‘stay here, but don’t have fun’. It gave obvious suggestions like be respectful with noise and also many great ideas for local places to visit. But then it also said things like “don’t do cannon balls in the pool” which seemed excessive. The home was very clean, though, and nicely furnished. Someone put liquid hand soap in one of the bathroom’s foam hand soap dispenser’s which rendered the soap in that bathroom basically useless, but that was a minor thing to us with a simple fix to the grocery store. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would visit again! Just please clean the pool better next time. Thank you for a great stay!

Nice property, overall great time. View and pool were the highlights. The spa/soaking tub would be nice to hear to a hot tub temp for evening use

We stayed for two weeks and wished we could have stayed longer. The house was amazing with beautiful views, an amazing pool and lanai, and great kitchen for cooking. The house is really close to shopping, but also in a beautiful, and quiet, neighborhood. We had an issue with the washer as well as some little fire ants (LFA), but the rental property management team was impressively responsive. Within hours, the washer was fixed and the hot tub area treated for ants.

We had a fabulous time. Young, old and in between, there is something for everyone. The view is wonderful and the house worked well.

Property/Location: 10/10 not too far from downtown and activities, nice to be in an estate area, great views and landscaped yard, perfect home for entertaining with enough room for everyone. We enjoyed this property overall and happy to discover the fence around the pool (which were not in the pictures), the outdoor shower doesn't exist (shown in pictures) Hot tub was on a timer which was unfortunate as we like it in the morning and wouldn't come on past sunset. Although the lengthy rental agreement states #38 of 68 terms, "38. RIGHT OF ENTRY AND INSPECTIONS: Kona Coast Vacations will have the right to enter the Premises pursuant to state law; (1) In case of emergency, without prior notice. (2) To make necessary repairs, alterations, improvements, supply necessary or agreed services, exhibit the Premises to prospective or actual purchasers, mortgagees, Guests, workmen, insurance agents, or contractors. GUEST acknowledges that routine care taking, and grounds maintenance will occur periodically during the lease period." The most frustrating of this property was all of the pool, yard maintenance people that came by during our stay unfortunately interrupted our families flow and privacy. People seemed to show up every time someone was napping including the kids or we were trying to enjoy the pool. In 5 days we had the following: pool tile guy, motion detector guy, 5 guys for landscaping, someone came to change a beach chair pad. Additional Cons: for the caliber of the property and costs, we would like to see updated beach gear as the chairs and ice chest were broken, the washer and dryer are very old, this is a personal residence so personal phones calls started at 6AM. In the end still and great Escape, would prefer less interactions with outsiders while trying to enjoy such.

The house and property were outstanding. We especially enjoyed eating outside and watching the sun set over the swimming pool and palm trees. The kitchen was fully equipped with pots, pans, utensils. The heater for the "plunge pool" didn't perform as it should, but was replaced in a timely manner. All in all, highly recommended and would go back in a heart beat.

I can't say enough good things about this home. The backyard makes you feel like you are at your very own resort. You can watch both the sunrise & sunset from the lounge chairs by the pool. We enjoyed the sunshine from sunup to sundown. The home is VERY clean & comfortable. We loved watching the geckos & listening to the birds in the private tropical setting. We will definitely be returning to this beautiful home.

We absolutely loved this house! It was stocked with everything we needed. The location was awesome, close to everything. Watching the sunsets from the beautiful backyard every night was amazing! We had a perfect 2 weeks in Hawaii!

This house was our first Vrbo experience, and it may have ruined our expectations for any future rentals! We received a call letting us the house was ready for check in about an hour before scheduled check in, and when we arrived, the place was immaculate! The backyard and lanai was very well maintained, the the home very well equipped. There were labels on everything, so if there were any quirks with the appliances or air conditioning, we knew what to do from the labels, and we didn't have to contact the property management at all. As parents of a child on the spectrum, we really appreciated the lanai sliding door alarms that we could turn on at night. The view was amazing, and we enjoyed morning coffee on the lanai and beautiful sunsets. The pool and yard team were there the first day, and did a great job. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would do it again in a heartbeat!

We just recently departed from this property so my review is fresh. We would rate this the best property we've stayed at in Kona, that is still in the vrbo-market. We were pleasantly surprised that the pantry was fully stocked with spices, which cleaning crews tend to clear away those that you purchases while on your stay. The welcome gift bag from the management agency was also pretty outstanding. We've taken the spices given in that bag onto our next part of our trip! The bedrooms and living spaces are exactly as described in the picture. The living/dining spaces are slightly smaller than many places we usually rent, but the covered lanai made up for the those aforementioned spaces. Kitchen island is extremely large, which was also a secondary eating/working area for those having to use their laptops. We usually visit Kona every 2-3 years and certainly would look for this property the next time we come back.

Property is 5 min from Kailua and easy to get to. There are two large bins by the pool, and one by the side of the house with pool inflatables (and a handy pump!), boogie boards, and a couple of low beach chairs. House and yard are extremely well maintained. Kitchen has everything. Watch the water level in the plunge pool though. It seemed to go down a couple of inches each night (slow leak maybe or evaporation?), and if the level gets too low it makes a loud sucking sound the neighbors can hear and won’t like. Just add water from the convenient hose. I recommend staying here without hesitation!

We had a fantastic stay at Kamilo House! It is an amazing house, that was a perfect fit for our family of six. We spent a LOT of time swimming in the pool and running around the yard, and ending each day chilling by the pool, grilling some dinner, and watching the sunset over the ocean framed by beautiful palm trees really can't be beat. The house had everything we needed, was in beautiful condition, and the location was great for us to explore the Big Island. Would highly recommend this house, and we would love to visit again!

This property is one of the most beautiful places we've rented around the world. Breathtaking views and the home is immaculate. The neighborhood was well maintained and secure and very peaceful.

We absolutely loved this place and had a wonderful time. We would love to book it again but we noticed it went up 50% and don't know if we could afford it, especially since they will only allow six people in the house so it wouldn't work for our family situation but we may be able to go there with two other couples and afford it. Thanks so much for the wonderful VRBO you provided for us it was wonderful! Angela Kilmer

A+ on house and views; the only thing we would change would be that the hot tub is only warm from 5-8p and we would have loved to use it more during the day with our young child. Would stay again and recommend to others!

The house was super clean. The best part of the house is the backyard (lanai) and pool. The views of the ocean were amazing.

The house was as good as advertised. Amazing views! We spent most of our time at the house outside in the backyard.
