Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in May 2014

The first night there I thought I was experiencing the most beautiful l sunset ever but they just kept getting better with every night. We arrived and our bedrooms and the living areas all faced out to the ocean view. We spent most afternoons and evenings out on the pool deck sunning, reading, and enjoying the hot tub and the view. The kitchen was very well equipped and opened up to the living room and dining room. It was nicely decorated in a Tommy Bahama style with really comfortable sofas. We went on beach walks to the Fairmont for cocktails and appetizers, took bike rides down to the local general store for snacks and groceries, and took day trips to Hawi, coffee plantations, and Honaunau Bay for snorkeling. I would definitely book this property again. You are out of the touristy area of Kona or the resorts and can really relax and spend time together.

We had such high hopes for a beautiful stay here but without central air conditioning
throughout the home and the only air conditioning controlled by the one bedroom suite upstairs for all the bedrooms it made for an uncomfortable stay at a very hot time of year.
They forgot to clean the bathroom in the master downstairs and left hair in the drain
and a half bar of soap. There are no night stands downstairs to put your glasses on
for reading just one chair by the bed. There are no chest of drawers to put your clothes
in also. They accused us of breaking glasses and staining a sheet which we did not do.
They kept 2000.00 of our deposit of 5000.00 and sent our remaining deposit out late beyond the 14 day required time period. I left the house spotless. Not a single item in the dishwasher or sink, all the laundry in the laundry room, all services clean. I took all our trash away and they did not have to empty trash. It was broom swept and I removed cob...
