A very nice house in the Malulani section of Kona. Close to all of the beaches you'd want to visit for snorkeling, boogie boarding, and relaxation. While not visiting the attractions, the house serves as a great place to just "hang loose." The home is stocked with all of the amenities including a BBQ, outside patio, and pool area, which we used most evenings. While not a huge home, it was definitely spacious enough to comfortably accommodate the six of us tall adults. The gated neighborhood was very nice because we found it peaceful and quiet. Oh, and the views from the home we're awesome. Every evening we all grabbed an adult beverage and sat in the front patio to watch the beautiful sunsets.
The owner of the home, Bhavesh, reached out to us a number of times to make sure that our accommodations were perfect. I definitely got the feeling that he was very interested in making sure we enjoyed our stay in his home.
We would definitely rent again. Thanks Bhavesh!
My family of five loved this home. It is spacious and clean. You are less than five minutes from groceries, restaurants, and shopping and less than ten minutes from the most beautiful beaches in Kona. Bhavesh, the owner, contacted us upon our arrival to make sure we had everything that we needed for our stay. We especially loved all of the beach toys!
My husband, my two girls (4 and 7) and I stayed in this home with my in-laws in June. The house is clean and well maintained. The neighborhood is nice and the view is amazing.
But what really stood out to my husband and I was everything we needed was in this house. We have stayed in a lot of rental houses in a lot of locations over the years and I truly think this might be the most well appointed. This is especially nice when you vacation in Hawaii you are flying so you really can't travel with large items. Everything was here. Standard linens of course (and the sheets were much softer than usual rental linens) - but also beach towels and kitchen towels. There were beach toys and boogie boards for the kids. Beach chairs and snorkel gear. Pool toys. DVDs and games plus on demand tv. They leave you a garage door remote and also one for the community gate so you don't have to keep entering the code once you get in the first time. There is a clothes line in the garage for wet bathing suits and towels etc and the washer and dryer were very high quality and worked beautifully.
You are right down the street from Walmart and Safeway and very close to Kona.
A suitcase full of clothes and a quick trip to the grocery store is all you need to comfortably enjoy this home. Everything else is there for you. These owners obviously think of their renters as their GUESTS and it shows!!!
I have rented houses in Kona and around the world through Flipkey for 10 years or more. This house was not as advertised . The furniture was so ratty and old you disapeared when you sat in it. huge ugly pit next to the pool full of pool equipment. Might want to check with OSHA for safety . No BBQ utensils Ice maker was a solid block of ice of no use. The pool is a big hot tub at best. You need to vet houses and owners better. WILL
We had six adults staying in the home (2 twin and 2 queens beds). Fit nicely for us. You could fit more, but I wouldn't recommend it. Owner was very responsive and helpful with questions. Home was clean. Photographs of home made it seem bigger. It wasn't close to ocean but is in a safe, gated community close to everything. Only issue we had was running out of hot water when six people tried to take a shower at same time (water got lukewarm). The pool could have been cleaner, but we really didn't use it much. Owner made it really easy to get in the home (keyless entry). Barbeque was provided and we used it several times. Overall pretty good experience.
