This was the second time I was at Rhonda's house.
She e-mailed the way to come to her house and made a warm welcome.
She made us feel at home, and made us everyday banana pies.
She borrowed us snorkel gears and told us where to go snorkel.
She prepared games for the swimming pool for my daughters...
she was our "Hawaiian Mum".
The house was very clean and the pictures showed how it is.
You cannot imagine how welcoming Rhonda is as a host. Besides that you live in a lovely room with a nice bed and and shared bathroom with so good standards. The location is great on the west coast, close to all the attractions there. Rhonda will gladly tell you about them for hours. Just too top off she makes a lovely breakfast table with so much good stuff and there is homebaked cakes in the fridge too. If we ever come to Big Island again, we will stay here.
We are so busy after getting back from this extended excursion to the normal life, finally it is the last day that we've got to squeeze some time to write this review. Staying at Rhonda's was such a wonderful experience in this journey. The first day we got there was a little late, Rhonda was so kind to wait for us till we got settled down. The rooms are very tidy and clean. We really enjoyed having breakfast in the dining room, where through the large window panes, we could see the light gray blue ocean in the morning. We enjoyed so much the conversation with Rhonda, we talked about different lives, beaches, turtles, fruits and plants and the eternal spring of Kona. We really like to come back next time!
Rhonda is a super host. She carefully takes care of the guests and the house, making us feel so homey. Her house is spacious and comfortable for us to stay.
We arrived on the late evening. Rhonda left some nice cakes to us in the fridge. Nice :)
On the morning, Rhonda invited us and the other guests to have the breakfast together in the living room. This was a special and wonderful experience for us when we were far from home.
This was my first ever experience with airbnb and I have definitely been spoilt by Rhonda. Prior to arrival, I received detailed directions which were easy to follow and I found our destination easily. Rhonda was very welcoming and generous with her Aloha spirit. Rhonda far exceeded my expectations and was willing to share her knowledge and background which added to my holiday experience. She is also an excellent cook and left lots of treats which were delicious
Rhonda was an amazing host. Her house was pristine, very welcoming and the views - wow. Rhonda gave me some recommendations on beaches to go for snorkeling and where to see the turtles amongst many other tip bits. Rhonda even let me borrow some snorkeling equipment and a body body whilst sharing some of her home baking with me. I couldn't have asked for more. Amazing host - thank you for everything.
When we arrived in Rhonda's home, we has been rocked the beautiful house. Clean, neat, and elaborate.
We arrived a little earlier, but friendly Rhonda received us, and also has a introduction for all details of the room
In the evening, we went to the nearby to see the Manta Ray, this is also a rare experience!
The next morning, we enjoy a rich breakfast. Thanks for Rhonda's Aloha Spirit !

About the Host, Rhonda
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.
