“A little piece of heaven on earth!” This place has it all, it was fantastic! The house was very accommodating and well-equipped, and had everything you need in the kitchen, and for the ocean - snorkeling gear, boogie boards and noodles. We come to Hawaii for the natural environment, and this beautiful setting is a feast for the eyes and soul. In the first 30 minutes of our arrival, we were greeted by a turtle lounging in the tide pools just below the house. Like most of the Big Island, the coastline is lava rock. But just to the right of this very special spot is "the bowl" - a favorite of locals where you can safely jump into the ocean, and there's great snorkeling right there in front of the house. If you just want to relax - so many options! Our favorite spot to read and nap were the over-sized hammocks hung between the palm trees, while the kids hung out in the lounge chairs on the extensive lawn. The oceanfront lanai offers more lounge chairs, dining table, and even a billiards table! The owners - Richard and Gloria - are the nicest people you could meet, and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed for a dream vacation. There's only one problem with this place - it is so relaxing, you may never want to leave to see the rest of the island. But you must - because there's so much to do on the fabulously diverse Big Island. We will definitely be back.
“Enjoying Kona” What a delightful place to be on Kona---close to everything, but away from it all at the same time.
Every morning we are up skirting the golf courses at dawn and end up up at the bakery picking up yummy treats for breakfast which we enjoy while sitting out on the patio watching the dolphins swim by---almost daily. And the snorkelling out front is so clear that I feel like I'm flying over the coral and lava...love it!
