We are a beautifully maintained and landscaped property with sevent bright, well-appointed, clean guestrooms. We are just steps from Kahaluu Bay, which offers excellent snorkeling and surfing, but tucked back off the main road so the atmosphere is tropical seclusion.
Each guestroom has its own private lanai, bathroom with tub-shower combo, refrigerator, convection oven, electric hot water kettle and coffeemaker. Additionally, we provide the following complementary amenities: use of beach equipment, garden sitting room with library and games, and gazebo with gas BBQ.
My husband and I spent a week at Big Island! Great location to many beaches. Jenny and Britanny were so helpful. The resort has equipment u can borrow- lawn chairs, coolers, surf boards, snorkel gear etc... Our room had a small fridge and microwave so we did all over our cooking in the community kitchen. Guests leave surplus foods, tinfoils, spices so tigers can share.. keeps cost lower if you do an inventory before going shopping . There is a bbq and large 3 stove .. plates and cutlery are available as well We would definitely stay there again!! Thanks Jenny and Brittany!! You were great!
if you are 20 and don't care if the bed has big valleys and creeks each time you move at night, you are fine. But for a person over 40 the bed we had in the Honu suite was horrifying. the place is cute and close to a great beach however. The pounding (construction) of the neighbors with the new building we left after 1 day having paid for 4. the other problem is that you have to use the one sink for both washing hands/Bathroom AND for dishes. Very unsanitary (I am a nurse...) But if you want cheap and don't care about bed (or if they replace it) it's a great location. well decorated.
This is a great relaxing place to stay in Kona area. The rooms are comfortable, well equipped and the staff are very nice. This is not a cookie cutter resort with the "usual " rooms and facilities. Each room is different and a lot like a home. We will definatly stay here on our next trip to the big island.
i arrived in the dark - after closing hours - so it's a good thing the office manager contacted me earlier and gave me her number. otherwise i would have arrived at my 'surfer' room and wondered where my bed & bathroom were hiding. there is a reason there are no pictures of it. until now. the room was clean, but it has a pull out sofa with a mattress pad about 2 1/2 inches thick and no sheets. AND the bathroom was in the next building. so if you are a person who needs to visit the loo in the middle of the night, get dressed first. and collect all your things before you head over for a shower, otherwise, get dressed again. since i am an older person, this was definitely not for me. i called the manager in the morning and she arranged for me to change rooms to the 'maile' room. SO glad because this was a great room, view towards the ocean and comfortable bed. if i would not have been able to change, i would have had to leave and find other accommodations. THANK YOU JENNY for helping me with the room; the staff here is great, but BEWARE OF YOUR ROOM SELECTION!!…
Big island retreat is a beautiful vacation rental where you can relax with family and enjoy the beach which is across the street. There are grocery stores movie theaters and different type restaurants just 3 min away. The manager Jenny and housekeeper Brittany are amazing and help you with everything and anything you need. Jenny answers the phone 24/7 so there is never a worry that my questions won’t get answered they also have great suggestions on where to go hiking, snorkeling, and where to enjoy a nice dinner. Will definitely be returning!!
