Our active family of 4 (kids 10 & 12) had a terrific but too brief visit to Rhonda's wonderful home. 5 star accommodations: firm beds, lots of space, gorgeous views, very clean, and delicious homemade jams as part of the simple but abundant breakfast. We also got great snorkeling advice (nearby, aquarium-like fishiness) from Rhonda. Highly recommend.
Rhonda is a fantastic host and this is a fantastic home! Located a little bit south of Kona, it is a great starting point to some wonderful snorkel areas. Da poke shack is about a mile south on the main highway and has some of the best poke around for a cheap price. The house is clean and spacious and Rhonda supplies breakfast fixings (homemade jam and home grown coffee included). There is a great view of the ocean and a porch to enjoy it on. Rhonda gave us some great tips for beaches to check out, is an excellent communicator, and more than accommodating, even let us borrow towels and flippers the day we were flying out and letting us drop them off later that afternoon so we wouldn't have to carry wet gear on the plane. I felt right at home. Other travelers were staying at her home at the same time and it was no problem at all. It was lovely to meet others passing through and exchange travel tips and stories. I highly recommend Rhonda's home for your big island stay! We loved it and would love to come again!
Rhonda's place is just perfect for travellers: close to the highway, dream house and sweet room, as well as the thoughtful care from Rhonda. We had sound sleep and good rest during the two nights here. If we ever come back to the Big Island, we will definitely choose to stay with Rhonda again!
Rhonda was a real host, she gave us good advice on what to see and where to go and even took us to the best snorkelling spot just around the corner (where we saw Dolphins and Turtels!). She helped us to sort out some problems we had with a letter sending from back home. The house and swimming pool are very nice and clean, and we were given towels for the beach. Breakfast is all there and you take what and how much you need. The place is great and Rhonda so hospitable and fun! 100% recommended! Best value might be the Deluxe Room as it is very quiet and has its own veranda facing the garden and pool.
Rhonda was the kindest host! We started the morning with the warm light shining in from the windows, drank coffee made from her coffee plants, and ate starfruit fresh-picked from her garden. I wish so much we could have stayed much longer.
She is an avid swimmer and has excellent recommendations on snorkeling locations. We were lucky enough to be able to go on a chartered manta ray night dive with her (an experience I would recommend!)
The listing exceeded our expectations. This was our first Airbnb experience.
Rhonda was very helpful in pointing out things to see in the area and even provided us with a guidebook for the day.
Rhonda provided us with snorkel gear, beach towels and boogie boards for the day.
Her home is beautiful and overlooks Kealakekua Bay. Awesome breakfast food was provided. Rhonda is a delightful host and regretted we couldn't have stayed longer.
Amazing value for what you pay!
We arrived earlier than Rhonda expected and she greeted us warmly and promptly finished getting out room ready. It was a nice place to stay, good breakfast and accessible to sites along the coast.

I have thoroughly enjoyed living on the island of Hawaii since 2002 and selected this destination after extensive traveling which included home exchanges in many countries.
To live everyday in total excitement and contentment with what the day has to offer became my mission.
Water quality and accessibility for swimming was at the top of my priority list.
I thank the Universe each and every day for allowing all of my life dreams, and more than I ever was able to imagine to come to fruition.
My passions are swimming, coffee farming, growing tropical fruits, vegetables, and flowers, as well as creating jams, jellies and liqueurs with the fruits of my little farm.
Operating a Guest House on my property became a dream that I am proud to see becoming a reality. I find it a total honor to live on this piece of paradise and feel totally compelled to share. What a great playground!!
I believe my success is based upon my guests enjoyment during their holiday. It is my desire to assist each of my guests in experiencing Hawaii in all its glory.
I welcome you to come share my most favored place in the whole wide world.
Today is the Best Day of the Rest of My Life. Come make it yours.
I want to Thank each and every one of my guests who have written such outstanding reviews on my behalf. Thank you all for your support, encouragement, validation, and your part in my dream coming to fruition with such wonderful memories and experiences. I has been my total pleasure to have shared such good times with each and every one of you.
