Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our family had the greatest time in this peaceful and lovely vacation home! It was a perfect base for our daily scuba, snorkeling, beach and volcano trips, and only few minutes drive outside the Kona-Kailua village with restaurants and shopping. It was wonderful to wake up in the tropical garden listening birds singing their lungs out every morning, and have breakfast at the patio watching the sun rise. Thank you, Beth, for hosting us the best possible way. We'll be back :) !!

  • We had the most amazing vacation on our trip to the Big Island. Our stay at Beth's house was perfect. Everything was clean, the kitchen well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. The location was great because it was just up the road from the main strip, which made it quite and close tooneverything. We could jog in the morning, swim at the great beaches, snorkel at one of the best spots around and finish the day on the deck with a BBQ. Highly recommend it!

  • An excellent stay! Beth warmly welcomed us when we arrived to answer all of our questions, and gave us some great tips about good local beach, grocery, and hiking spots.

    The home is as nice as the listing indicates. One pleasant surprise was how the lanai seamlessly melds with the house -- you can walk onto the rear balcony from one room, and then reenter the house in another room. It may sound simple, but with the amazing weather, and all the doors open, it really adds some special character and relaxation. The house is also in excellent shape -- it was super clean when we arrived, the yard was lovely, and there was no leaks, despite the *insane* rain that fell over our first two days. There's a large driveway that you can easily park your vehicle on. The wifi was very fast. There's a nice washer and dryer unit as well.

    The kitchen is fully stocked, which we took full advantage of to do some serious cooking (with ingredients from one of the local organic stores Beth told us about). There were multiple pots, pans, a rice cooker, plenty of tableware, ziplocks, spices...

    Beth provides just about everything else you might need too: the "blue book" (an indispensable travel guide to the Big Island), boogie boards, Nalgenes, coolers, ice packs, snorkel gear, ear plugs by your bedside (though we didn't need them)...

    The home's neighborhood is crowded but not overly so -- it's very lively, but quiets down at night (though you may hear the faint sounds of people chatting and enjoying the evening). It felt safe, and we enjoyed partaking in the local scene. The location is great too -- it's a short walk to a nice beach, where you can play in rocky pools and watch an amazing sunset; a short drive to Napo'opo'o (Hawaii's "Napa" of coffee); and right on Queen K, the main thoroughfare for just about anywhere you'd want to go on the west side of the island.

    I'd highly recommend this home if you're looking for a relaxing and convenient place to enjoy the Kona side of the island. Thanks Beth!

  • We stayed here with a group of four (all in our late twenties). The house was very clean and well decorated. There was free laundry and a nice stash of beach supplies (boogie boards, cooler, snorkel gear, beach towels, etc). There was also a bowl of delicious fresh fruits for us when we arrived. The house is a few blocks off Ali'i Drive, about two miles south of the main drag of shops, restaurants and resorts in Kona.

  • We stayed in this gorgeous house in late January. The house is very clean, tidy, extremely well equipped (Beth has thought of everything!) and it is really comfortable to live in. We were a party of four adults and we had more than enough room for all of us to spread out, and we very quickly fell in love with its Hawaiian charm. It is located in a quiet and peaceful area and there is a lovely spot on the covered verandah where you can watch the sunset over the ocean. This home was a great base for our many travels across and around the Big Island. Unless you plan to stay >very< close to home, you will need to hire a car. The oceanfront is a 5 minute walk away and the Kona town centre is too far to walk to. Plus the Big Island is one of the most incredible places in the whole world - it needs to be explored! We absolutely adored our time here and were sad to leave. The bathroom is spacious enough for four adults, the laundry facilities are clean and well maintained. We felt very safe in the area, and travelling around at night. If we are ever lucky enough to return to the Big Island, this home would be on the top of our list. Mahalo Beth!

  • Beth's house was a real pleasure to stay in and the longer we were there, the more we loved it. It's VERY CLEAN and organized! That was a huge plus. It's also very well thought out for both families and couples. She has everything from dinner for friends and family to beach and surf day at the beach. The house is in a great location and we had never been to Kona and turned out this was just a fabulous starting point to begin our fantastic week about the island. Everything is thoughtfully laid out, handy, clean and the house is so quiet. One of our favorite parts were the exotic and colorful birds!!! Everywhere are birds, gecko's and fresh fruit on arrival - a great patio in the front and a nice and quiet screened patio in the back. The birds are wonderful to wake up to... songs and fresh flower scents in the air with the surf in the distant background made this just ideal. I would really recommend this for the price, location, value and quality.... just great! Thanks Beth.

  • A great place. We'd definitely stay at Beth's again. Clean, good layout, fast wifi, well stocked with kitchen utensils, and lots of goodies to borrow for the beach. Perfect for young families, especially as it appears the city has begun to put a park in around the corner.

  • Our stay at Beth's Ocean View Home was just as we expected. It's located very close to downtown Kona and you can easily walk/jog down to some beautiful beaches. The place was spacious enough for us 5 adults to stay. She decorated her place very nicely for her guests to stay comfortably and every little things in the house were carefully thought out.

    She has a grill on the front porch where you can cook your meat and enjoy the nice view of the houses lit up on the hills. There is also a closed back porch where she placed a chess table and a little table for you to sit down and chat after dinner or with a morning coffee perhaps. The kitchen is very well equipped as well.

    We will absolutely recommend this place for your vacation in Kona.

  • We absolutely loved our stay at Beth's place in Kona. It's exactly as advertised...a spacious 3 bedroom rental with full kitchen and plenty of room to spread out and relax. Beth is the perfect host...she made sure we were comfortable and happy, and that we knew she was available if we needed her. This rental is very convenient to restaurants and shopping just a mile or so to the north and to one of the best snorkeling coves in Hawaii just a couple miles to the south. A nice little beach and place to snorkel is just a five minute walk from the rental. Beth's place is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The master bedroom has a private screened porch. The full kitchen is well equipped for cooking any meal. We would highly recommend this rental over and over again. Aloha.

  • Beth's house was a great place to stay on the big island! Very close to downtown Kailua/Kona and beach and the main road around the island. The home was very clean and welcoming and had most house hold items that you would need on a vacation! She had everything clearly labeled with directions on how to use. We only stayed for a few days, but it was perfect for what we needed! I would recommend staying at Beth's place to anyone who is considering a trip to that area.
