Guestbook comments from the owner

Good morning trish and sterling -

We have had such an amazing week in your beautiful house! We want to stay another month - can you call our bosses and let them know?? Thank you for everything. The house was wonderful, comfortable and we'll stocked. We will be checking out by 11 this morning.

I wanted to let you know the clip that holds up the shower head in the 2nd floor bathroom broke last night. It just snapped in half when someone tried to rehang the shower head. We saved the broken piece because it could maybe be super glued. It's in the shower.

Thank you again for everything!

Overall lovely property!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, close to shopping and restaurants of downtown Kona,Magic Sands beach. Easy to navigate to most Big Island attractions and landmarks. The house,pool ,grounds and amenities are lovely! 2 big plus points-an elevator for physically challenged guests,and (optional for a $50 daily fee) air conditioning for one or all bedrooms and common spaces. Most properties here do NOT have central air conditioning. One challenge- 2nd floor master bath is beautiful but does not have its own shower, and large jacuzzi is awkward to climb into,can be slippery. Love the 3 separate units,great for giving family or other members more quiet and privacy. Sterling is a wonderful and attentive host,prompt to respond to our needs. Thank you for helping to make our family reunion truly happy and unforgettable!

The Shangrila is the perfect accommodation for families or groups, allowing for connection when wanted and downtime when needed.

It is Walking distance to town and sand beaches. It is directly across the street from a computer convenience store, with a Pedestrian crossing for safety. Also it is just a short walk to the Da Poke Shack, a local favorite source for fresh fish.

Shangrila is impeccably furnished and maintained, and the pool and hot tub created a resort type feel in the outdoor areas. Saving the best for last, are the commanding Ocean views from the 2nd and 3rd floor dining areas, and the relaxing sound of the waves that surrounded us during all times of the day and the night.

WE brought family of 15 to Hawaii, the first time for 13 of them. We could not have had a better place for us to stay while we were in Hawaii. The beach right out side the balcony for all three levels. The accommodations were as described and all 15 of us from ages 2 years to 76 years was able to enjoy our little Heaven on Earth for the week. Sterling was very easy to work with and a very congenial property owner. It was nice to know that the owners were close by in case we needed anything or just to talk to for any reason. Yet they also were out of sight so we did not feel as though they were looking over the fence.

The house was great for us. The two Master bedrooms and bath rooms were great for our family. The pool was a center of attraction all of the time. The BBQ grill allowed us to have a wonderful family dinner that we will all remember for the rest of our lives.

What we came for was family togetherness and that is exactly what we got.

We especially enjoyed the volcano at night. That was fantastic. I had never seen it at night before even though my wife and I had to the Big Island 4 previous times. It was great sitting in the restaurant eating dinner and you could see the glow of the volcano as it got darker while turning from daylight to darkness and the volcano was changing from smoke and steam to a glimmer to a completer glow. The lava tube is always exciting to see the new life that the volcano brings to the surface.

Snuba diving was a new and exciting experience for all who did it and the rest to enjoy watching them having a good time in the water.Snuba is a combination of snorkeling and scuba diving.

I would highly recommend this facility to any family that wants to spend time together.

NOw for the downside of it all. We did not catch any fish. (Boo Hoo). But it was still great fun as my 8 yr old got to steer the fishing boat.

We did not get to see any planets thru the planetarium telescope but we did see them sort of thru one of the same privately owned scope.

Unbelievable Kona Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is completely perfect. It stocked with everything you will need; it is very spacious for a large family or two families, even. We were all one family, so we used the 2nd floor and Lanai by the pool as the gathering and eating places. The picture windows on the 2nd and 3rd floor open completely allowing the trades to blow gently through the house all day. It is ON the water. Only a small lawn between you and the waves. Even so, it was great having a pool, because swimming right in front of the house is not recommended. At night automatic screens can be lowered to keep bugs out. We celebrated our sister's 80th birthday here and it was so memorable! Our host, Sterling, was available and helpful in every way. We highly recommend Kona Shangrila for your family vacation!

Beautiful home with a beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for our 2 family vacation. My husband and kids stayed in the top unit, my brother and family on the second floor and mom in the studio on the bottom. I highly recommend paying extra for the AC if you can't sleep in high heat and humidity. We saw turtles at the little rocky beach behind the house which was a plus. The only negative was the surprise that the grassy area behind the house was owned by another gentleman who does not allow anyone on it other than his own family.
