  • Last but not least: their Big Island Island Retreat had been the last one of all our accommodations on a four-weeks-trip. And it was definitely one of our best. The upgrade (what a surprise!) to oceanview room resulted in speechless stunning views inside and outside. This open two-storey room for two people is amazing. With oceanview from the lanai (of course) but also from bed upstairs your daily wake-up will be perfect. The lovely interior design combines vintage furniture and modern art.
    The retreat offers everything you need, washing and drying is available for $1 each.
    It is close to Ali'i Drive but several miles south from Downtown Kailua. Supermarket and drug store is not far in Keauhoe Shopping Center. The weekly farmers market in Keauhoe is recommended. Parking is available and the beach w/ surf shop is just steps away.
    Do not hesitate - head for their Big Island Reatreat.

  • We stayed and Randy and Shannon's place for two nights and had a lovely time there. The room (and rest of the house) was beyond our expectations. Everything was so nice and clean and we felt like we were in a luxury hotel room -but one we could cook and hang around in as well. We cooked and ate on the veranda and everything we needed was there. We even got a basket with healthy breakfast supplies and local snacks. Randy was also a great host who welcomed us the moment we arrived and who was always in for a great chat. More than perfect! We absolutely recommend this place, best airbnb experience we had on the island(s)!

  • We had an excellent 6 day stay at Big Island Retreat. Randy & Shannon are the best hosts. Their care, cleanliness, and attention was next to perfect. Plus they have a dynamite location near town and the best snorkel beach on the island. We just can't say enough about their property and will definitely be back. Forgot to mention that Randy & Shannon are very flexible and can work with you to give you a total island experience.

  • Our stay with Randy far exceeded our expectations. The room, the cleanliness, and the amount of attention they put into their space to ensure each and every one of their guests are happy, was incredible. From the moment we arrived, we were personally greeted by Randy who helped us with our bags, gave us a tour of the beautiful property and made sure we were settled in. We actually had a mix up with our room on our first night, but Randy made sure that it was rectified immediately the next morning. Because of this mix up, we had the pleasure of staying in two of their rooms, and I can say with confidence that each one was just as clean, beautiful and unique in its own way. Randy was always available when we had questions and it was very apparent that they sincerely wanted their guests to enjoy their visit (which we did!!).

    We had everything we could possibly need in our room, with the addition of an outdoor kitchen that was fully equipped with a microwave, stove, and even a collection of herbs and spices should you feel the need to fire up the BBQ.
    They also had a washer and drying (which comes in handy when taking longer holidays), and a stockpile of beach equipment available for use. They had everything from sun screen to beach chairs that were readily available for guests!

    They are located just across Kahaluu Beach, and conveniently next to a surf shop where you can rent snorkels, paddle boards and take surf lessons. Downtown Kona was just a short 10mins drive away so it was easy coming in and out!

    I would HIGHLY recommend staying with Randy and Shannon if you decide to visit the Kona area. After staying with them, I will never consider staying at a hotel again =)

    Mahalo to you both.
    Can't wait to see you again!

  • Our experience at the Big Island Retreat was wonderful and memorable ! The room was super clean (especially loved the upholstery) and had a beautiful view. Special thanks to Randy who was always so friendly and willing to make our stay as nice as possible. The place is just a short walk to one of the island's best snorkeling locations (Kahalu'u beach park) , which was a highlight of our stay.
    Would definitely recommend this place to everyone visiting Big Island.

    Mahalo !

  • Randy and Shannon's Big Island Retreat was like visiting an "oasis"! The Aloha Room theme, cleanliness, ocean view, and sunset made it perfect. The convenience of restaurants, drugstore and supermarket were better than a hotel. Randy and Shannon shared quality communication and ambience with all guests. Outdoor gazebo cooking with others was sociable. Plus we enjoyed meeting new friends with mutual appreciations exploring volcanoes, snorkel, hiking and more.

    We will always remember your enthusiastic spirit of adventure as you took in as many activities as you could and still found the time to stop and share the stories with us. We hope you come back soon, we miss you already,
    Mahalo, Shannon and Randy

  • We just had a fantastic (too short!) stay in this beautiful room. I cannot praise enough this fantastic place with goodies on arrival, friendly hosts, beach equipment (including surf boards) available for free, wonderful decor, fabulously comfortable bed and a fantastic snorkelling beach 5mins walk away. Randy & Shannon have done an amazing job making this place incredibly welcoming. Big Island Retreats will suit the most private as well as the most sociable guests, with ample facitilies within your room (private seating lanai, kitchenette, bathroom), but also communal relaxing and a sheltered bbq lanai to share if you want to meet other guests and your hosts. A perfect set up if ever I saw it. :) I would heartily recommend this place to all and am so glad we found it. Couldn't fault it, loved every moment - I wish we lived in a place like this!

    Aloha Rebecca and Luke, Thank you once again for choosing to stay here at the Big Island Retreat, we sure enjoyed having you here. You two were a lot of fun as we talked about all the adventures you were having around Kona and how much you were enjoying yourselves. Thanks again for all your kind words to us about our property and how my wife Shannon has such good decorating skills. I am glad you had a fantastic vacation, Please come back soon, Mahalo, Randy

  • I don't know if this place could have gotten any better. We had the ocean view room. You can watch the sunset and listen to the waves. Everything was spotless and new. The sheets were steam pressed! They gave us a welcome basket of granola, coffee and chocolates. Their atrium is a nice place to hang out while you do a load of laundry. It's a 15 minute walk to the plaza or a 5 minute drive to a main strip of lots of restaurants and shops. The nearby beach is a great place to learn how to surf too. I am definitely staying here again if I return.

  • The Big Island Retreat is a great place. It has absolutely everything you can wish for and the rooms are very well equipped. The place even have an outdoor kitchen which we ended using for barbeque most of the nigths. We had a booking for the first three nights of our stay at Big Island, but actually ended up coming back for additional two nights. Randy and Shannon are great hosts and very helpful and friendly. Their place is located on a quite road 1 min walk from Alii drive. This is great as you can hear the ocean, but not the cars ☺ If going to Kona again we will definitely be looking at staying here again and we would highly recommend booking a room at the Big Island Retreat if you get the chance!

  • We had a great time during our stay at Big Island Retreat. The house, including our room, was beautiful and totally matched our expectations. The location is perfect. Directly opposite to a great bay for snorkling and close to many other destinations (Captain Cook bay, Kona etc.). Gigi is a wonderful person and made our stay even nicer. She was always there for answering questions or just talking. We are very thankful for everything she did for us.
    We can highly recommend this place!

My wife Shannon and I fell in love with the Big Island and it's Aloha spirit the first time we vacationed on the island. We knew that there was something very special about Hawaii, specifically the Big Island and after about a year we made the decision to make Kona our home. We have found that life on the Big Island is paradise and more...the weather always warm and comfortable, snorkeling and surfing just a few steps away and being able to have shops, restaurants being so close you can walk to them and the access of public transportation just up the road. Our property is very special to us and knew the very first moment we saw it that it was home. We have created a wonderful vacation rental property with 5 beautifully and newly decorated rooms with either a partial ocean view or garden view, lanai to watch stunning sunsets and a fully equipped gazebo BBQ area. We are tucked in amongst a quiet neighborhood though steps away from the beach all ones hears is the surf. We welcome you to come enjoy and see why this is the perfect place to spend your next vacation. Warm aloha, Randy & Shannon
