The place was spacious, clean, and with amazing views! It looks as it is depicted in the pictures. It also had everything we needed in the kitchen (silverware, cookware, cooler for day trips, etc.) The washer and dryer was definitely a plus!
I would highly recommend getting a 4x4 vehicle. The drive way up is really steep and can be hard to see at night or in the rain!
Otherwise, it was a great rental and lovely location in South Kona! I would definetly stay here again!!
What a fantastic place! The view is breathtaking! The hale itself is really lovely and has everything you need including a really comfortable bed with lovely sheets. The towels are big and fluffy and the place was spotlessly clean with a fabulous lanai. The gardens are stunning with many beautiful birds. The driveway is steep but we had no problems in a 2 wheel drive jeep but it's so worth it when you get up there. We loved Captain Cook and we did all our shopping at the Choice Market down the road.....really friendly people and a great range of products...their sushi was the best! Cynthia was great to deal with. But the view...it must be nearly 2000 feet up looking straight out to the ocean...the sunsets were awesome. We were really sad to leave and will definitely be back. So all I can say is JUST BOOK IT NOW!
Good location. Tried using a GPS because we were coming from a different direction than the starting point. Eventually used the store as our land mark and found it right away. Wonderful view up on a hill just like a bird.
Really simple to check in, instructions to the house were clear (though in the dark we did still manage drive past the driveway a few times!). Very steep driveway, but our little rental made it up no problems. House was very clean with air conditioning (it was super hot and humid the nights we stayed). The outdoor kitchen area was really cool too. I'm glad others mentioned the mosquitoes so we came prepared with repellant and still got bitten a lot, but this place is in a jungle so its not surprising. The fish and chip shop nearby was great too, and the supermarket is only 5 minutes down the road. The view is stunning, the garden is beautiful, we would definitely stay here again.
The most important Thing at first: the given address is completely wrong. At this Point you won´t find your accomodation! Please contact Cynthia for her better description before your trip! Be also prepared of a really steep rise, short but steep! Please ask Cynthia also for the hidden place of the key - we don´t found them and hadn´t a cell phone .... Once you are inside the Bungalow you will be very pleased. Clean, enough place and an outdoor kitchen at the absolute Highlight: the great lanai with a overwhelming view about the bay. That was the compensation for the Trouble before. All in all I can say: start difficulty - but then great.
The place was as described, no surprises. The view is great and has mentioned very rustic. Not for someone who prefers the hotel setup but I do and this was ok.
The place is beautiful and wild but hard to find, hard to access (the road is very steep) and the kitchen is outside!
But everything was clean and pretty.
We did not meet our host, neither anyone!
The WiFi was not working and we could not find the box neither any instructions to reboot.
We thought to be closer to the beach from what we saw on the photos, we were closer to the top of the mountain...
We really enjoyed our stay at Bird Lover's Garden Hale. It was in a great location. The view was spectacular and our stay was very comfortable. Only note that this is up in the mountains and there are quite a bit of mosquitoes and the Coqui Frog orchestra is on full swing starting sundown to sunrise.
Cozy and rustic with stunning views. We had a lovely stay and were quite comfortable. This is definitely off the beaten path and more like a cabin. If you like camping or the outdoors this is a nice find, but if you are more at home in a Hilton keep searching.
Our stay was wonderful. The place was gorgeous and unique. Thank you for the hospitality. It was wonderful to meet you.
