This was like our own private resort with everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. We spent most of our time in the pool and watching the awesome birds and lizards in the area. Highly recommend!

Amazing location, private and not far from town. This was an oasis that felt like home away from home. Excellent communication with the owners. Would love to come back.

Wow! This property was amazing. The photos on line were great and enticing: but to experience the beautiful park-like setting; mesmerizing blue-water views; refreshing pool; and making family dinners in the beautiful kitchen- waking up to the birds singing to do it all over again was amazing. Looking forward to going back soon. The location was close to restuarnts and shopping. It was a "grand vacation" with my family. Mahalo!

Definitely scored finding this place for Ironman. We loved everything about this house, and have already recommended it to friends who are planning a Big Island visit. Unbeknownst to us, the south end bike turnaround was just up the street. Communication was perfect. Sean was beyond a gracious and accommodating host. Thank you! We miss it already. Mahalo!

This is one of the top places we've ever rented in Hawaii. The property was spacious, well furnished and easy to find. I loved the electronic lock system. No more keys! Kitchen was very well stocked with quality cookware and SHARP knives. Thank you so much for this! Beds were comfortable and super stylish. Home felt well cleaned and smelled fresh. Enjoyed the pool and hottub. So much fun and relaxation. I can't wait to come back!

Our stay at House of Palms was wonderful. The house is beautiful, and well equipped. Everything we needed was provided. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub, and the beautiful view. We had fun playing with the badminton racquets and although we didn't use any beach gear, there was a lot of it! I would highly recommend staying here if you are coming to Kona.

I can't say enough great things about our stay at the Kona House of Palms. First of all the home is beautiful, spotlessly clean, and decorated with such care and wonderful style. It might sound odd, but the color schemes were particularly lovely and relaxing. Second, the grounds...what can you say about that pool and the gorgeous gardens. They were absolutely spectacular. The location is terrific, very convenient and even walkable to the beach and other sights if you so desire. It's a very nice, gated community with the best neighbors, too! Bob across the street was so welcoming and kind, even giving us a coupon he had for a restaurant we were visiting to celebrate a birthday. Couldn't ask for better neighbors. But the absolute best part of the whole experience was dealing with Sean and Anjali. They were terrific throughout at communication, but they really went above and beyond for us the day we arrived. We had been coming from another vrbo on the Hilo side and had a long lag time between checking out there and checking in at this property. On the day of our stay, I asked if we might be able to store our things somewhere at the property before official check-in, since I didn't like having all our belongings in the car as we killed time. They were so gracious about this request! They not only said it was no problem, but we were able to leave our items in the garage while cleaning was occurring, and then they moved everything into the house for us before we returned for check-in. We had an opportunity to meet them, and they were so lovely and welcoming. These are A++++ host and hostess. Thank you!

Property was well-maintained and very clean. Enjoyed our stay but would have enjoyed it more if the pool was a little warmer. Communication with the owner was excellent and he mentioned that they are heating the pool with solar heat. . The gardens at the home were beautiful. We will be coming back.

Property was amazing. The pool and hot tub was the highlight of the trip for everyone. We really didn't have to go anywhere. Christmas at HOP was a definite change of scenery the family needed! Mahalo nui loa!

Once again we had a wonderful vacation at Kona House of Palms! The owners have made some very nice updates to the house that make it even better than our last stay at this property. We love this property so much we don't even use our timeshare on the Big Island anymore, we stay here. Sean and Anjeli are so incredible to deal with and anything you need they are there to make your stay the best they can. I highly recommend Kona House of Palms for your next vacation on the Big Island.

This was a beautiful home in a great location. The pool and hot tub were a hit with the kids and adults! It’s located in a very nice, relaxing, quiet, safe, gated neighborhood. Sean was available and answered question on getting down to the beach from the house and any other questions we had. It is located minutes away from food and shopping. Would definitely recommend!

This home was beautiful and satisfied our needs. We had two families stay with us at different times and One family had older kids and they thoroughly enjoyed the pool. The other family had two small children and one older and they loved it almost as much as the other kids. We ate most of our meals at the house and was able to utilize dishes, pots and pans. Appliances used everyday. We will definitely plan to stay here on our next visit if available, Owners were accessible by phone and very friendly. We drove to many beaches and into town all within a reasonable amount of time. Thank you!

This was in a nice gated community in a mice location. It was so close to Target, Costco, and any other store we needed to go! The house was very clean. We absolutely loved the pool and jacuzzi. There was quite a bit if mosquitoes though (it could have been just the timing of our trip) so would recommend to bring mosquito repellent :)

Absolutely fantastic place that our family of 6 adults and two kids fit perfectly in. Within 5 minutes of arrival, the kids were already in the pool and found all the toys. Kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, glassware, cookware, spices, etc. There was beach towels and coolers for the beach. Very clean, beautifully landscaped place. They had a binder with tons of suggestions of activities, which we went to several of them. Then at night time relaxed on the patio and cooked out. Thank you!!! We loved Hawaii!

Great location, well kept older home with recent updates. Very well stocked. The mattresses in the two spare rooms were rather hard. I might suggest two twin beds or a double bunk bed for one of the rooms so mixed people could share the room but not have to sleep together. The cover on the hot tub was kinda rough and some of the jets didn't work in the hot tub. If we are fortunate enough to go back to Kona we would certainly consider renting the property again.

We normally spend a weekend at the Hilton but decided to do something more private and away from all the hustle and bustle of the resorts. We are so glad we did. This was a beautiful home with a pool and a jacuzzi. It has everything you need stocked up. We stopped for groceries and made our own gourmet meals, lounged poolside and just had a great time. Our kids lived in the pool the entire time. It was very relaxing and my family really enjoyed their stay. The only negative thing we encountered was the neighbor lady next door who said we were making too much noise in the pool at 10am on Saturday. Aside from that, it's a nice neighborhood. Not as close to the ocean as we had hoped, but the pool made up for that. Mahalo to the owners. Great place!

This gated neighborhood is lined with chirping birds, beautiful trees and fragrant blossoms - a tropical paradise! The landscaping was one of our favorite features, all leading to backyard waterfalls that splash into a large, deep pool. The patio area includes a large BBQ and all the outdoor furniture you could need. The home was well stocked with everything: luxurious towels and bed linens; beach chairs, water toys, and ice chests; games and books; blender, rice cooker and crockpot; clothing iron, cleaning supplies, hairdryer, etc. Decorations throughout the house are nicely themed and not cluttered. The three bedrooms have plenty of closet space for belongings. Shared living space was comfortable and there was ample room for our family of 7 adults. Additionally, there is air conditioning if you’re the type who needs it. We only used it a couple of times during our stay, since the breeze kept us cool with the windows open. The location is ideal. A short walking path leads to multiple public entrances to the ocean and to a nice market. It’s a short drive to stores, bars and restaurants. A car is necessary for traveling to the best sand beaches, but there is plenty of parking at the home. Sean and Anjali were fantastic hosts - kind and extremely helpful. We happened to be in the House of Palms during Hurricane Lane. Sean went above-and-beyond what I would expect from any host. Despite the weather, we had a great time and were completely comfortable. Plenty of games, books and gorgeous views to keep us occupied. We highly recommend the House of Palms if you are looking for a modern home with easy access to all of Kona’s best spots. 🌴

My husband and three young children and I stayed at this lovely home for 6 days in mid July and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. INSIDE: The house is neat, clean, roomy, and has a lot of unique and personal touches that made it feel special: from the premium linens and towels to the beach-themed dinnerware and drawer pulls in the kitchen. Just lovely. The kitchen is VERY well stocked and the living area/kitchen boasts a great open floor plan. OUTSIDE the house only gets better. Beautiful pool with lava rock backdrop (my kids really enjoyed jumping off the rocks into the deep end); roomy and deep hot tub; loungers, a dining area, umbrellas for shade, and more. Kids enjoyed looking for lizards in the side yard and along the fence. LOCATION is great: a nice, quiet, gated community just a short drive to the airport, and a mile and a half or so from the main shopping section on Ali'i Drive. Would highly recommend and would definitely consider staying here again! Everyone loved it.

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was well-stocked, from a first aid kit to anything you could need in the kitchen, to an abundance of bedding and towels. The owners were helpful anytime we had a question. We’d stay again and recommend it to anyone.

The house was beautiful and simple; well decorated. The pool and yard were gorgeous! My family enjoyed their stay. There were beach toys, boogie boards, snorkeling gear and coolers to use for our outings. The kitchen had all the appliances needed for the days we stayed home. We completely enjoyed the home!!! Mahalo!!!

We stayed 3 days at this property and were very pleased. I rated it 5 stars as the landscaping is lush, pool and hot tub area just as mentioned in the write up. Kitchen has everything you need with all updated appliances. Sean was very responsive on any questions I had before we came. Great location away from the downtown area but close if you need to go. You can’t go wrong with the property as it is everything as described. I would certainly go back!
