A great experience from beginning to end. The owners were very helpful, responsive and communicative throughout. I had a group of five and had no problems accommodating everyone. The kitchen had everything we needed. This is our first VRBO and it worked out well. The directions to the house was very helpful. But best to checkin during daylight because navigating can be a little tricky at night.
Great experience staying at this property, the quite idyllic forest surroundings made for very pleasant evenings here, we wished we had booked more nights. After staying in Hilo, we appreciated the cool of the mountain cabin which makes sleeping effortless. Thank you Kathryn and Bill!
We really appreciated the uphill cool of this cute place. Being up this high (maybe 2000 feet?) meant the nights were wonderful, especially after a day at the beach. No AC needed! And yet still close enough to airport, Costco and Kona beaches...
The cottage was well appointed, had a very usable kitchen with spices and condiments and there were beach stuff and coolers for use. We were only there for the weekend so didn't get to take advantage of the rentals available (kayak and SUP, I believe) through the owners.
Beds were comfy and there was even a friendly cat who joined us now and then. I highly recommend this lovely spot in the jungle.
Secluded, But a Long Drive to Everything
The property was nice and seemed well cared for and was Very secluded & private and a long drive to get anywhere. So, if we went to the beach and got hot, salty and sandy, we had a long drive to get cleaned up and a long drive back into town to be able to go out to a nice dinner. If you plan on hanging out at the cabin and not seeing the island, this wouldn't be an issue, but we wanted to explore and see the sites.
It was not as cool as we had hoped it would be. After a long hot day at the beach, I would have enjoyed some air conditioning. As it was, we purchased a fan, because the overhead fans just didn't do the job. By morning, it felt cool, but to be able to sleep, we needed it to be cooler.
Also, it was odd that there was only one hand towel for an entire weeks use, and one bath towel per person and not one wash cloth. We requested some, and received them, but it seemed strange that we had to ask for such a basic necessity. Also, there weren't enough dishes. We only had 4 plates, so we never had enough for a dishwasher full and ended up having to wash by hand. I'm not sure what would happen if there were more than two people staying here, because it looks like it sleeps 6 people.
The outdoor bathtub was nice, but be prepared with bug spray, because they come out pretty thick at night. Daytime is a little better.
Overall, it was nice, but I wouldn't stay here again.
I’m sorry you were not happy with your stay. If you had asked I would have been happy to bring you a fan. You are the first guest to comment on being too warm.
THE GREAT ESCAPE
What a wonderful place to get away from the crush of tourists and sweltering heat in Kona. We loved returning to this oasis of quiet and cool after the day's activities. The cottage is surrounded by dense vegetation--very private. Everything we needed for our stay was provided except food of course. Having said that, we loved the bananas the owner brought to us--apple bananas--delicious! She was quick to respond to queries while at the same time respecting our privacy. We felt right at home and hated leaving at the end of our stay. Ollie the cat was a bonus! How nice to have a fur person to welcome us/and we him each day. We highly recommend the cottage for any length of stay.
Great property with GREAT Hawaiian vibe!!
NO complaints here. This is a great property with GREAT Hawaiian vibe. Neat and clean. One small mechanical glitch was quickly attended to by the owners that live close by. (Thank you!). Our only suggestion would be one more chair in the dining area and another chair on the lanai. There were only two at both locations and there were 3 of us. Plans are to return to the Big Island next year and will definitely stay here again!!
