We had a wonderful stay. The house is perfectly located close to beaches, the community pool, and resorts. The house was spacious for my in-laws and 2 small children and clean. We would love to return!
The house was immaculate. Very comfortable for our party of nine. Convenient access to the pool and near by beach made it very enjoyable!
Very close to pool and two master bedrooms with king beds for the win! The owner was also very communicative. Lots of snorkel gear. We bought an extra boogie board to donate to the house because my kids were fighting over the single one available. Would have loved if there were sand toys available too.
Thank you for sharing your place with us!
Once again, our visit to this property was great! It's a fantastic location and the house is perfect for a large group... has all the amenities we needed, host has always been great and easy to get ahold of and we look forward to coming back next year!
We all loved this beautiful home--grandparents, children, and grandchildren alike. There was plenty of space with every amenity we could hope for.
THE FACT THERE IS TWO MASTERS IS A BIG PLUS. NO ONE ARGUED OVER ROOM ASSIGMENTS. WE HAD BREAKFAST EVERY MORNING ON THE LANI! SAW MANY BIRDS (A RED CARDINAL CAME EVERY MORNING), ALSO A MONGOOSE!! THE RESORT IS BEAUTIFUL WITH POOLS AND A PRIVATE BEACH CLUB. WOULD DEFINELTY RECOMMEND THIS HOUSE TO AL LARGE GROUPS.
Great area, beautiful neighborhood, very nice beach, pool was nice and close for walking. The beds were very comfortable and bedrooms very spacious. Lovely two master bedrooms. Air conditioning was a big plus! Kitchen was well stocked with all essentials for cooking and grilling. Even had a coffee grinder and big rice cooker. Nice little back yard and lenai to enjoy. The garage had many beach essentials which were great for the kids and adults. There are bikes also but one bike had a flat tire.
So the only problems arose due to the really windy weather. We tried going to the community beach but left rather quickly due to sand flying into our eyes and the baby wasn't enjoying the sand in her face either. I also wasn't expecting to have to drive as far as we had to to get to our beach. I don't think I would have ridden the bikes that far either. But it would have been a really pleasant beach if the weather would have cooperated. Can we have a do-over??😏 So we ended having to do more sightseeing than staying to enjoy the community pool and beach. We found out that Kona's weather is calmer than this area so we ended up driving to some beaches in Kona. That was really too bad because this area's beaches are SO much nicer.
The pool was nice even though a bit cold but the hot tub was very nasty looking (needed cleaning desperately). I didn't even want to go into that.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful tropical home with our family. If it weren't for the weather it would have been an absolutely perfect vacation. Aloha!
Oof, what a place. Large open areas for extended-fam hangs; plenty of dining/quick snack seating, and super useful Island-fun supplies (swimmy/beach eqpt, in addition to decent kitchen supplies). 9 of us stayed a week, two 3/5yo kids as well. Served as an incredible home base during our island explorations. Location was fantastic, seems better to be north of Kona, here, as it was closer to cutting across the island for our exploring. Incredible pool for non explore days. Resort beach was poppin, and had other cool nearby amenit like shopping and dining. Made that stuff easy mode for sure. Ty for the fun; trip planners put this one high on your list!
Beautiful place, great communication with owner, spacious. Loved it. Will return.
This was a perfect rental for our family of 7. The location was great as well as all the amenities. The four bedrooms gave everyone their own space and the table on the lanai was perfect for our meals. The property manager and owner made booking very easy and communication was great.
We had a great time at this house. Thank you!
This property was incredible. The owner provided thorough, clear communication and was so accommodating. We truly enjoyed this location and would highly recommend!
We are a family of 9. It was great to have a place that was actually designed for that many. A table large enough for all of us, enough chairs, No one sleeping on sofa beds. This had an amazingly stocked kitchen, with just about anything you could imagine. There were lots of snorkels, boogie boards, and beach stuff. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful house.
The property served us well. amenities in the complex were used, the pool and spa were close by. The property manager was very responsive, even taking my call at 8 am on a Sunday. There is plenty of space for all to relax. Aloha!
The 2 master bedrooms made for a comfortable stay for our family.
My family and I had an amazing time in Hawaii. The planning process in regards to securing the home was easy. The owner responded almost immediately to all of my questions and provided great suggestions on excursions for my family. The home is beautiful and was spacious enough for my family of 8. We loved how close it was to the pool, all of the gear provided in the garage for a fun day at the beach and enjoyed bike riding with the bikes provided. The one and only observation that needs attention is the odor from the washing machine. The good thing is the odor did not affect the clothes. Overall, an absolutely awesome time. I highly recommend this home. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Fantastic location, great snorkeling and facilities. Well appointed Beach/play gear. But…Freezer didn’t work and wasn’t warned. Oven needed to be fixed while we were there. Didn’t fix a light in shower in main master creating a trip hazard for my 78 yr old dad. Property manager said owner didn’t want to fix until he came. Shower handle very loose master bath. Worn furniture. Bugs in hood above stove. We stayed a block away at a much better rental for cheaper in the past. Just didn’t have four bedrooms or we would’ve rented there again. Disappointed.
This house was perfect for our group of 8! Plenty of space for everyone in an incredible community with lots of amenities! Can’t wait to stay here again!
The house is beautiful and perfect for ten people! The pool area is amazing! We called the property manager for help with the washer (user error🤣) and they responded quickly. It truly felt like home away from home. The big island is such a wonderful, diverse place to visit. We’re hoping to make it back someday and would love to stay at this property again!!!
The house was beautifully furnished with extensive features and space for a large family. The pool is a minute walk away, the shops a minute drive, and the beach club a little further. There was plenty of cookware and dishware, so we happily cooked our meals and ate on the lanai twice a day. We'd definitely stay again!
We were a party of 9 ( 6 adults and 3 kids) and it was a wonderful base for our vacation. Its in a nice development, short walk to fun pool area for the kids, and short drive to beaches and shopping. House would be great for 2 families to stay (2 master suites) and was stocked w beach and kids stuff and games in the house. Would love to stay here again. Mahalo:)
I’m a former BI resident and my husband and I were married here January 2020; and his parents, my parents, and his 3 boys (my now step cool kids) we’re all included. All of us were coming back for this spring break but last minute it just ended up being us without the grandparents. We had an amazing time. Boys wanted to be closer to sand beaches so between hapuna and Mauna Kea we were set in mornings. Could come home for lunch and chill time before going to the Mauna Lani Beach Club, which was included in rental, and enjoy another low key, non crowded/great snorkeling beach while getting a couple of liliokoi margaritas before dinner time. The house itself was perfect. Space, comfort, well stocked kitchen, plenty of towels and beach gear, plus relaxed atmosphere along with convenience to early morning runs or walks and neighborhood pool swimming were magical. We really really enjoyed ourselves. But honestly, best part was the communication. There’s nothing worst then getting a vrbo and not being able to ask questions , get further info, or get in contact if you need too. This place was wonderful. Highly recommend.
This home was wonderful for 10 family members. Bedroom situation was terrific. We had the best time celebrating our 52 nd anniversary
We had a wonderful time at this house. Everything was as described upon arrival and the check-in and check-out process were smooth. The location can’t be beat and the Beach club and pool were so fun for our five and eight-year-old kids!
Amazing time with family! Centrally located to beaches, downtown Kona, airport and Volcano. Has all the amenities, snorkels, fins, masks, beach towels. Perfect outside dining area when the sun goes down! Great communication with owner. If you don’t choose to stay here, you are missing out!!
The property was in a great location with all the amenities to make a perfect vacation. The pool was a block away, the private beach was a wonderful place for children to swim and snorkel and had a restaurant which was a nice surprise.
Beautiful place! Poor air conditioning. The 2 bedrooms off the kitchen were very hot and sweltered without air conditioning. It did not cool the house at all.
Freezer in the kitchen did not work at all, was smelly and moldy. A chest freezer in the living area. ? Was not plugged in correctly so took us a while to get that working as well.
The 2 master suites were great. Very beautiful place. Mostly needs work on the air conditioning.
This house has it all!
1. It's in a great location that is close to multiple resort areas.
2. Community amenities are many and include a really nice gym and pools which were really nice to visit in the evenings after days of hiking or snorkeling.
3. Well stocked house. The house has everything you will need for a very comfortable stay. This is probably the best equipped kitchen I've ever seen in a vacation rental. Beach equipment, towels and umbrella. Just about everything you need for a day at the beach.
4. Great layout. We traveled with 7 adults and the home's layout was perfect for family dinner and game night but it also allowed for everyone to have privacy when needed.
5. Communication with the owner was easy and responses were always quick
We would definitely keep this home on our radar for return trips to the big island.
This place is perfect for a couple of families. It’s very roomy, had everything you need to be at home and near the best beaches. We were celebrating my Mom’s 80th birthday and had an awesome photoshoot at the beach The suite upstairs had a great sunrise view and the outdoor downstairs is awesome for family hangout. The house iwas also well stocked with toiletries.
We loved this place, and our host was really awesome! Mahalo!
Location is fantastic - loved the house itself and access to the private beach for the community. It was spacious and had mostly what we needed to be comfortable for the week. Was super happy to utilize the beach equipment and toys (no need to buy anything and toss or give away when you leave). Minor issues: when we arrived, the AC was broken and the property manager let us know they would come fix it the next day. Given we had young kids, it made for a rough and hot night, but I was grateful it got fixed the next afternoon. We had some issues arise with the freezer constantly beeping, smoke alarm battery going out and beeping, empty propane tank which meant we could not readily BBQ, etc. Minor things bit a bit of a nuisance as you should not expect same-day turnaround for anything. The community pool was a little under maintained despite the lap pool being nice and new. All in all, I still think the value was great and I would love to stay in this community again in the future and hopefully a lot of these minor issues get resolved for future travelers. Mahalo!
Wonderful home and location for our stay on the big island. The home was plenty big for our family of 10. The patios and garage were a nice bonus. Plenty of kitchen supplies making family gathering a breeze. The owners were easy to work with and offered so much valuable information. We will be back.
Beautiful home that has everything that we needed. Loved the kids sand toys, beach gear and well stocked kitchen. Pool area is close and has a great grass area. Would stay here again.
