My teenage son and I visited Kona in June 2014 and we stayed at Marthe and George's. The house is very conveniently located, just a short drive to Ali'i Drive where the restaurants and local beaches are. The room had a great view of the ocean. We often ate our meals on the lanai which also had the ocean view. Marthe and George were very friendly. George told us impressive stories about the ironmans he did. They are very friendly hosts. I highly recommend staying with them.
My husband and I stayed with George and Marthe when we visited the Kona side of the island and it was such a pleasure! They were also so helpful with offering advice on where we should visit and letting us borrow snorkeling equipment or boogie boards. The room was beautiful, exactly as pictured, and very clean! We felt welcomed immediately and often used the porch for our morning coffee and meals. One evening I had burned myself from spilling coffee at a luau and they immediately went and collected aloe leaves to use on it! 1 Mile from the coast and Ali'i drive which has all the shopping. Wouldn't have changed a thing!
Martha and Jorge were excellent hosts. We enjoyed our time in their home.
Lovely open room with great hosts!
Staying with Marthe and George was a great experience! They are very welcoming and give great advice for things to see and do around the island. The room was very comfortable for 2 and the location was easy to find! I'd have no hesitation recommending their place to stay!

Marthe and George had great suggestions for us during our time in Kona and even surprised me with a cupcake and candle when they found out my birthday was one of the days of our stay! We would highly recommend staying with Marthe and George if you are staying in Kona!
Really glad I booked with Marthe and George. They were great hosts and the description of the room was accurate to the experience. They were really helpful on all ends, flexible and simply fun to be around. I would definitely recommend them if you are looking to stay on the sunny side of Big Island. Aloha
Dear Marthe and George, it was an fantastic time staying with you. I felt in love with big island;) The location,our room(the bed was so comfortable and the view, was amazing), your house and you both were so great that I definitely would come again. We felt so welcome and it was like home. Thank you for being such great hosts and persons. Love your tips and advices as well as your conversations. Thank you for everything! Aloha Deborah
I stayed at Marthe and George's for 7 days and it was truly a blissful and relaxing experience. Although they were visiting on the mainland, their friend Aaron was running the Bnb and it was perfect to have some company and make a new friend on my travels. The room is magic: open and screened walls let in fresh air and the fan keeps a breeze in the room so I didn't get too warm at night. It feels like you're in tree house, but I didn't any problems with privacy (there are shades on all the walls) or bugs- only thing you'll see on their porch are geckos, which is a sign of good luck :) It was also very convenient to have access to the kitchen and be so close to the beach I could get a good run in down Alii drive. A car or moped is most convenient since the main little strip of shops and restaurants are about a 40 minute walk. Overall I felt comfortable and right at home and am very pleased with my stay at Marthe and George's. Mahalo to you both and especially Aaron!
Marthe and George are excellent guests! They left the room in perfect condition. They don't even use the small garbage can that I keep in the bathroom. They put all their garbage in a plastic bag and left it on the top of the garbage can that I provide. I hope that next year I can visit them and I use their services as Airbnb's hosts. I am Herbalife distributor and there is going to be an Herbalife Conference in Hawai in 2015. Thanks! Aloha
Marthe booked for friends Karen and Ed from the Big Island to come to our place and it was nice to have both the connection with Marthe as a fellow Airbnb "Host" to supporting like minded guests that look for the connection. Not all guests like to go through the booking process or to create a profile and in that case Marthe did a fantastic job in bridging the gap for these local island travelers ! Thank you Marthe, now we both have connections with each other.
