Love the Big Island and taking time to take it all in! Travelled many place and just want to share my love of our place with people so they can see it for themselves. It is truly paradise up on the mountain!
Sarah's house is a perfect little getaway.
Note - this is not like staying at an all-inclusive beachside resort. Instead, it is like your own comfy home (with kitchen, bbq, washing machine, garden, basketball hoop and privacy) up and away from it all.
You stay in a cool, lush jungle... and in the most comfortable bed! It is about 20 minutes from town - which is just about perfect to feel like you are away from the hustle and bustle - but not so far that you can't just roll out of bed and hop in the car for a short trip to the beach.
Sarah and her family were perfect hosts (even bringing us amazing homemade treats for christmas)...
We could not have been more pleased with the experience. Grateful.
My stay at Sarah's Big Island Guest House was absolutely fantastic. Sarah was a wonderful host and her home was the perfect getaway at the end of the day after a busy day of touring the island. It is a must to rent a reliable vehicle (I do not recommend Scooter Brothers) as the Sarah's guest house is a solid 20 minute drive to the heart of the city. Sarah's guesthouse was fully stocked with everything we needed including beach towels and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Would highly recommend this place if you want something off the beaten path, beautiful and relaxing, and surrounded by lush green jungle!
Sarah's cottage was a perfect place for our stay. Privacy, comfort, and a wonderful setting in the ohi'a forest high above Kailua-Kona. Sarah made us feel very welcomed upon our arrival, and showed us everything we needed to know. Especially enjoyed the Big Island Revealed guidebook and the book about Hawaiian birds. We made good use of the propane grill to cook some teri pork we bought at the Farmers Market in Waimea. Take the drive to the top of Kaloko Drive to really get a better feel for this special part of the island. Thanks for a great experience, and hope we have the opportunity to return!
Response from Sarah:
Thanks for the treats! Was a pleasure to have you guys!!!! Many Mahalos!
We had a wonderful week long stay at Sarah's house. The house is even better than it appears in the photos. It is on a beautiful street in the mountains and feels remote and secluded while being just a short drive to beautiful beaches, supermarkets and all other amenities. The house is incredibly comfortable with everything you need and sarah could not have been more helpful.
Response from Sarah:
Thank you! Hope you come again someday!!! Best of luck with #3!!!!!
