The view from our room was exceptional, John was friendly and helpful, it was quiet and close to all the attractions of Kona and area. It was everything we needed. Thanks John.

“comfortable place with reasonable price, great lanai view!”

My husband and I stayed their for 4 nights. This studio share the same house with host so you can get help from the host anytime. The room is spacious, clean and newly decorated. King size bed, and the bed is comfortable. The view from lanai is great! The host, John, is very helpful and gave us a lot of local infomation. This is a quiet, beautiful community, with no crowded people, just what I want. I see some turkeys one day, the first time I see turkey. I think the only shortcome is that the shared kitchen is outside the studio, so I have to prepare food in room and move out to the kitchen area to cook. I enjoyed the peaceful days there, a good place to relax.

Management Response
Feb 7, 2013
Nadine was a very fortunate first time traveler
She and I where so lucky to catch the glitch with the schedule on the popular site software, pretty buggy,but I was available on new years day to get her into a clean room, just had a guest today that made the mistake on her end , and we where booked ,I got her great place at another establishment.
That is us
We try to go the extra mile to help ,
we picked up,and dropped her at the other place.Don, know many places that would do that.
With Nadine we did not charge for the extra cleaning fee even though the booking mishap
It was not in our control. I am glad that we have a level of service that I have not received at any hotel at twice the price.

Also we spent many hours helping Nadine with her first reservation experience with flip key ,and Hawaii, I have never received any help like that from any hotel even in the 450 range.

Extras she got
King sized bed not a futon, soap and shampoo, dance class,gave her help with local sights and restaurants, history talk,and at fruit tasting and talk , free massage, only four seasons does anything like that, kona village used too

Like any place we have blind spots so we had to get rid of the shared frig, tidy the yard,change lights and the cooking area . We continue to do a continuous improvement approach, that is why it always good to give the host the knowledge of what is not working well.

We have reward system for guests that have given us insights into how we can make the place much better.
Rewards given
for 2 days comp, chocolate fountain and a dinner pass
We recently had a guest insist that we take half of there deposit as a tip

Our rustic Hawaiian house with insights and Hawaiian experiences is not for every one but many people want more of a unique experience than it is just right for you
ie serve 3 types of passion fruit, cherries,bread fruit , 4 kind of oranges, 6 kind of avocado, 12 kinds of citrus, 4 kind of banana, and rare fruit never served at any hotel except on rare occasions at 330-1000 night hotels
