Relax , enjoy the sunset maybe even the Green Flash...on large lanai where gourmet catered dinners can be arranged. Mahalo for looking and A Hui Ho!
Marthe and George are great hosts; Very gracious and accommodating. Great spot, beautiful views and a nice place to stay.
Marthe and George were wonderful hosts and the room was great. Marthe met us with a warm welcome at our late arrival (11:30 pm). The following morning George greeted us with a fresh pot of coffee (which was there every morning). They were full of suggestions for activities and good conversation with some lovely personal touches including a lei for my girlfriend on her birthday, booking us reservations at an exceptional sushi restaurant (also on her birthday), and a couple chocolate treats waiting for us in our room on a volcanic rock tray after a day of adventuring. They also have snorkel gear, a couple beach chairs and a cooler among other items for use. They have much knowledge of the island and a lot of experience in the hospitality business, which is very evident. The room itself is a screened in porch where I listened to the waves (about a mile away) crash against the shore, the tree frogs sing, and the leaves in the palms rustle as I was falling asleep. The room was just off a large balcony with a great view of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. We had access to their full kitchen which we utilized for breakfasts, since we ate picnic lunches and restaurant dinners. It was a very relaxed and homey atmosphere that we enjoyed greatly.
Marthe and George are very special people. They make you feel so welcome and are so generous with their time and resources. They also made wonderful suggestions for sightseeing and dining. We are especially grateful to them for taking us in a second time on extremely short notice when we had difficulties with our accommodations elsewhere.
We immediately felt at home thanks to Marthe and his husband. They gave us great advice to discover the area.
The lovely room has 2 very comfortable beds and a wonderful view on the sea.
We would be happy to come back to their house if we have the chance to go back to Kona.
Lovely room in a great location with very hospitable hosts. We had a great time here and highly recommend it. George and Marthe made us feel most welcome. Added perks we loved were fresh coffee in the mornings and borrowing their beach gear (boogieboards, unbrella, chairs and beach towels). Excellent location too: very close to the famous Ali'i drive and yummy Poke at Da Poke Shack.
Marthe and George were great host who made us feel a part of a family. They gave us great tips on what to do and see on Hawaii. The room was simple but met our needs perfectly. The only thing to keep in mind is that it can be a little noisy since the room is open aired but ear plugs do the trick and they provide them with the room. I highly recommend this listing.
Our best experience in Hawaii! We stay one week in this lovely room with Marthe and George, a couple so helpfull and kind. We feel like home but plus the incredible landscape. From their place you can visit all the island! We loved to get back to our room and tell them what we have seen.
Thank you both for all the special moments that you share with us!
Hope to see you once in Switzerland!

Marthe and George were wonderful hosts. My mother and I stayed here for four nights. The house is clean and well maintained. I say house because marthe and George offer you the use of the whole home. This price for this place is a steal. They let us barrow their snorkel gear as well as beach gear. George even offered me the use of some golf clubs if I wanted to go golfing. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and very well located near shops, restaurants, and beaches. I would recommend you rent a car for the area because there is so much to see and places to go. The room has everything you need including a tv with like 70 channels including espn which I used to catch a couple okc thunder games while we were there. George and Marthe always put their guests needs first. I cannot say enough good things about how we were treated. 5 stars a crossed the board for us. If I could give six stars I would. We will definitely stay their again when going to kona.
My son and I recently stayed with Marthe and George for 5 nights and they are wonderful hosts. They have the knack of making you feel at home straight away and are very generous with their home and their time. Our room was lovely and open and being away from the hustle and bustle meant it was peaceful and relaxing to come home to.
Sitting on the front lanai with the ocean view was a wonderful place to drink my morning coffee and to watch the sunset in the afternoon . Marthe and George are both kind and thoughtful people and if we are lucky enough to visit Big Island again we will definitely stay with them.
Marthe and George were very generous hosts and let us use their snorkeling apparatus and beach chairs and umbrellas. We very much enjoyed the lovely room we stayed in with a beautiful view of the ocean. They also let us use their kitchen at all times. We highly recommend this place which is also close to restaurants and shops a few minutes from their home.
