Hosts Wayne and Jo make this vacation home a pure delight. They are cordial and attentive without being intrusive; guests are blessed with great privacy. Don't let the modest exterior of the cottage fool you. The interior is immaculate, up-to-date, and first rate in every way. The cozy house contains everything you will need or want. We especially enjoyed breakfasts at sunup on the deck overlooking the expansive property and the Pacific Ocean. Visitors may want to pay attention to its isolated location at the southern end of the Kona Coast. If you must have a variety of fine restaurants nearby or want a grocery market around the corner, you may be disappointed. Such amenities are at least 10 to 20 miles away. The same goes for sandy beaches and good snorkeling. Kailua-Kona and the Volcanoes National Park are an hour and a half (or more) away by car. But if your priorities are peace, quiet, and relaxation, this is the place for you. We'd love to return someday!
We enjoyed how close the shops and beach where to our rental. The home owner was very quick to reply back to us if we needed anything.
Most the neighbors were really nice and welcoming. One neighbor did yell at our kids for being to loud in the pool.
The unit did not have air conditioning (was not advertised) we assumed it would have an AC unit. So for us it was way to hot during the day and at night. My husband and I did ask the homeowner if we can purchase an AC to put in the master bedroom. We were told no due to the cost of electricity. For us an AC unit would be worth an extra $10 a day to cover the cost just to cool off from the heat.
The website did advertise cable TV but when we arrived there was internet TV.. Roku and Netflix so we had to go to a resturaunt to watch a football game.
Overall our stay was fun and the pool was really nice for us to cool off.
We would defently rent this place again if there was an AC unit added.
