“Island Getaway in Paradise”

Having just closed our stressful business and retired, my wife and I needed a place to escape, think and rejuvenate as we finally now have the time to actually enjoy life as it is meant to be. Jill found the HALE HONU HOUSE on line and booked a six day stay. To say the property met all of our expectations is an understatement. We went to sleep to the sound of the surf and spent idyllic days and nights in a truly gorgeous very private oceanfront home. While close to the many attractions of Kailua-Kona village, we found great contentment just hanging out in the honeymoon suite with all the windows open or outside in the covered lanai. Our hosts, Peter and Darla, could not have been more attentive to our every need. Thanks to both of you guys for a truly memorable and very relaxing vacation!

Aloha Rick and Donna,
Mahalo for your choice of Hale Honu and your feedback. We're getting new lanai furniture pads for the upstairs based on your observation. All of the loungers along the sea wall have almost new full length pads.
We purchased new bed linens for Hale Honu in June and October of 2013. We provide a choice of down or foam pillows for every bed at Hale Honu. We'll contact our housekeeper to assess the linen condition as we are not returning to Kona until April.
We own the Hawaiian Oasis Estate Bed and Breakfast in Kona and can always address these kinds of issues at anytime during your stay. We're happy to change out pillows and linens for guests if they are unsatisfied and we know about it.
