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!

awesome...House is very close to nature, we enjoy in there for 3days! Sarah is so sweet, she prepared a lot of brief introduction to the local! Very helpful!
This was a really wonderful place for us. The house was comfortable and quiet; really relaxing. We kept remarking how perfect it was and how we felt lucky to have booked this place! It was 15 minutes from downtown Kona, which kept us out of the fray, and it was so easy to get to northern or southern beaches from the house. We loved the way the master bedroom felt like sleeping in a screened-in porch (but much nicer) with all the windows and the greenery and birdsong outside. The little yard was perfect for our toddler, and having laundry facilities on site was a real plus. The description is right on. There were lots of beach amenities and we used the grill almost every night!
We met up with Sarah and she was so friendly and kind; we really enjoyed staying at your peaceful place. Thanks for having us!
Sarah's guesthouse is fantastic. Everything was as described in the listing. Hosts were accessible via phone, text and email and always responded promptly. We especially loved eating breakfast on the patio. We generally left in the mornings and came back to the house for dinner. It was tough to leave. Given the chance we would definitely return.
Sarah's Big Island Guest House was perfect in so many ways; it was absolutely lovely, so very quiet and nicely stocked with a variety of things that came in handy (basic cooking ingredients, boogy board, beach towels, etc.) We loved escaping Kona to go up the mountain a few minutes to our cool, quiet retreat at the end of the day. The birds were a treat every morning. Thank you for a lovely week!
Sarah's Big Island Guest House was a lovely, comfortable and welcoming place for us to begin our stay in Hawaii. the house is located in a quiet neighborhood in the hills above Kona, where it was cool at night and pleasant all the time. The house was exactly as advertised in the listing. Beds were comfortable. Garden was nice. Sarah was friendly and welcoming. She helped us find the place when we were a little lost at night and even greeted us with a pizza for dinner when we arrived late. She offered a wealth of information and recommendations about beaches and other island activities -- all accurate and helpful. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to others.
Glad you had a good time! Hope the rest of your trip went well! Mahalo for picking my place!
Sarah's house is cozy, clean, and super convenient. Driving to town is only about 15mins. Having breakfast in the sun at this house back yard enjoying the sound of silence is the best experience. I definitely recommend Sarah's house for people who plan to visit this part of big island.
Thanks Charley! It was so nice to meet you and have you stay at my place. Glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet of Kaloko and hope to see you again someday.
This place is perfect! I planned a last-minute getaway to Hawaii and didn't want to stay in an urban area. This guest house, while close to the main house, was far enough away from everything that it truly felt like being alone on the Big Island!
The description and excellent pictures (so many!) left no surprises. Sarah met me when I arrived, gave me a tour of the guest house, and helped me understand where the best and closest places are so I could enjoy my stay. I had a number of beaches in mind, and Sarah recommended Kua Bay, which was absolutely perfect. Small, safe, white sand, crystal clear blue water ... and Sarah had beach towels, chairs, and a cooler available!
Great to have you! Hope you make it back someday! Good luck on your new adventure! Mahalo! Sarah

We had a wonderful time at this house. We were looking for a place to stay near Kona, but not downtown, and at a higher elevation so we could sleep in a cooler climate. This place was perfect. Kona can get pretty hot, especially after you've been roasting on a beach all day, and it was really nice to drive up the hill into the lush vegetation of this neighborhood, and chill out in a fully equipped house, away from all of the other tourists. Sarah was a great host. Be sure to use her directions, because Google will not map you to the correct location.
We very much enjoyed staying at Sarah's Guest House. The house was extremely clean and had all the amenities we needed, which included a full kitchen (regular size stove, not a portable cooktop; fridge with icemaker/filtered water, microwave, etc). There's a dehumidifier in the house, which was definitely a plus when spending the day outside in the high humidity. Sarah was a great host in that she gave recommendations on places to go (best beaches, restaurants, etc). She even offered to let me use some of her snorkel gear, which was really nice!
Like most houses I noticed on the Big Island, the tropical landscapes in the neighborhoods and surrounding the houses are beautiful, but this can make it difficult to find the house you're looking for...especially at night. So if you arrive when it's dark, drive very slowly and look for the address on the mailbox, otherwise you could easily miss it, because the house is set back quite a ways. Great for privacy, but tricky when first arriving.
If like good coffee, Sarah's place is just a mile from the award-winning Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation, which has been featured on several Food Network shows. It makes for a nice walk in the morning. I would definitely stay at Sarah's Guest House again, if I return to the Big Island!
