“Out Standing Kona Retreat”
Reviewed March 19, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

We have stayed here twice, each time for new years eve, each time did not disappoint. The house is 45min-1hr south of the airport. It is FULLLY equipped, the kitchen has every item you can think of (spices, tea, coffee, pots, pans, utensils, serve ware, crock pot, blender and more) as well as beach equipment. (Bring beach shoes, Kona beaches tend to be rocky.) )Booking was simple, done through home away. The owners Michele/Ron respond quickly to questions/needs. The home is clean, comfortable, the views are gorgeous, and every comfort of home is included. The driveway accommodates 2 cars. For those in need of internet, the wi-fi is quick. Michele has brochures, binders and pre-arranged discounts with local merchants for outings and spas.

The location is quiet, although you can see the New Years fireworks, minus the smoke and crowds. There is a beach at the end of the steep walk, or a short drive to the road across from the Hookena water fountain.

If you plan to eat at the house, do your shopping and buy your gas at the Costco located just south of the Kona airport. There is a grocery store nearby in case you need something. If you don't feel like cooking your first night Paparoni's Pizza is on the way to the house, they have gluten free choices too. Of all the Hawaii Homes this one is my favorite, it's like a home away from home.

“Beautiful CLEAN home with huge lanai overlooking the water”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is just what we wanted.... not a big tourist resort but a free standing 2 story home with a huge lanai to eat and enjoy the view! This home is close to everything but feels removed. Very clean. Can't wait to come back someday soon!!!

thank you so much for your kind and generous comments; we try hard to please our guests as we know that coming to Hawaii is such a special event. We partner with other excursion and travel vendors to make this a wonderful time for you and your families. Hawaii and our little home "Kona Leilani" is waiting for you-- Please come back soon!!

“Gorgeous Home with Stunning Ocean Views in a Terrific Location!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What can we say--but perfect! We were so happy to see that the house and property are exactly as depicted. The homeowners and managers were so helpful.. We travelled the island taking advantage of the special discounts this property offers through Fair Winds Charters and Kona EcoAdventures! Our group had a wonderful time and we so enjoyed just relaxing on their beautiful lanai--that ocean view is stunning--it is actually 180 degrees! amazing. We recommend also going on the night time mantaray dives with Fair Winds-with our discounts, one person actually went free!
We would very much recommend this lovely immaculate home to any groups or families-it is a really great location in South Kona if you enjoy swimming, snorkelling, hiking and visiting some of the loveliest national and state beach parks.. We also suggest visiting the City of Refuge, living national historic park--there is terrific snorkelling right next door at "TWO STEPS. All this was only about 15 min from the home.
We will definitely return. Lisa and friends
