“An excellent place to stay, surrounded by the natural beauty of Hawai'i”
Reviewed November 3, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

It was so lovely staying in the Plumeria Suite at Bears' Place! This has been our best vacation ever, thanks to this fabulous setting and all the considerate EXTRAS that the hosts have provided, including information about Kona, restaurants, beaches, OOFOS and living here. We hope we will be back soon!

Liked best: The design of the suite itself, the lanai with view of ocean, how clean and well maintained the house was!
Liked least: we are used to a king size bed, so the queen bed became challenging by the end of our stay

My husband and I stayed in the Plumeria Suite on the second floor - sitting out on the lanai felt like sitting in a tree house! We were surrounded by foliage and birdsong, refreshed by soft breezes - delightful! Our hostesses were wonderful, making sure we had everything we needed and more - we were even gifted with homemade lilikoi jam, delicious! The suite was spacious, very clean and very comfortable. We would definitely repeat our stay should we ever come to Kona again!

“Fabulously appointed studio in a quiet, lush green neighbourhood.”
Reviewed November 17, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I had the upstairs studio which felt more like an apartment. The high ceilings and good quality furnishings made me feel I was in a hotel. On arrival I received 1/2 pawpaw and a beautiful small cake - thank you Nanette. The studio has everything a traveller needs - clean rooms, comfortable bed and wi-fi that always works. After a busy day's sight seeing it was a wonderful retreat to come home to as its in a very quiet suburb with lush gardens surrounding the property.

You do need a car to reach Bears Place and to visit the Big Island (unless you stay in the tourist part of Kona and use tours). There is a supermarket, Matsuyama, a few minutes drive away which I used frequently, which also sell petrol.

Highly recommended and would stay if in Kona again.

“Great Relaxing Home Near Kailua-Kona Hawaii”
Reviewed October 18, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed two weeks at this beautiful owner-operated guest house just a short 15 minute drive from the city center. Great location, nice ocean views, very clean, well maintained, nicely furnished, parking available, with all amenities available that you'll need during an extended stay and many beach items you can use. Owner was very personable and friendly, provided a walk through, answered our questions, provided us many locations to visit and other places of interest on the island and on an other occasion drove over to accommodate us on a personal request. If you are tired of resort living and staying in a hotel, this is a great option to consider!

We had the pleasure of staying in the Plumeria studio for 2 weeks. Our most important "make or break" in a vacation rental are cleanliness and comfy bed. This place had them both. We usually opt for a place with a king sized ned, but i would take this comfy queen over some of the inferior kings i have had. The large covered lanai was great. No problem with parking. The wifi was problem free. Easy access to utility room with washer and dryer for longer stays so you can pack fewer things! ($4.50 per load, soap included) i must admit, i haven't heard roosters on my previos stays in Kona, but they seem to be everywhere on the island now!
Nanette keeps the property in good repair and spotless inside and out. You will feel safe and looked after.

My wife and I just returned from a seven night stay at Bear's Place guest house. We stayed in the Orchid suite and it was one of the best rentals we have ever stayed in in our 12+ trips to Hawaii. The rental is in a quiet neighborhood. The Sunset and views from the Lanai are amazing. The unit is extremely clean and well furnished. The unit even came with a travel cooler, beach towels, Beach Umbrella, and boogie boards for body surfing. Nanette was a gracious host. Are flight arrived late at night and she had juice and muffins in the fridge for us for breakfast. The unit is centrally located 15 minutes from Kona, 40 minutes from Hapuna Beach, and roughly 3 hours from Volcano's national park. Nanette also helped give us advice as to local attractions on the island. Again, an amazing place to stay on the Big Island.

We (Me+Wife+ 3 kids) spent 8 days, in this beautiful, well facilitated and well kept amazing place. the location is great, close to the air-port, to the down town and to the amazing beaches. everything you need is there, which really makes the stay perfect. from chairs & boogies to the beach, through tons of fruit you can eat fresh from the trees :) to a washing machine , coffee maker, WiFi...the owner hospitality and availability are great and we really got what ever we needed or wanted, including tips for really cool locations. we really enjoyed our stay and definitely would love to come again. Ofer & family.
