An immaculate home with a sunset view over the pacific

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I shared this home for two weeks in January/February using it as a central point for visiting other areas on the Big Island. Reasonably priced, spacious, clean, and a great kitchen, there was little to need for our creature comforts. The primary bathrooms had their own full baths, and the breezes and fans cooled us at night. With our rental car we toured the area between Kona and the National Volcano Park snorkeling, hiking, birdwatching, photography, fishing, volcano tripping, historical stops, and a myriad of things to get involved with. Good hiking trails right there at Pebble Beach along the ocean and the crashing waves into the rocks. Sunsets and starry skies off the deck were special times to relax and forget the rest of the world. We simply did not have enough time to see everything we wanted to see. One is a little far from goods and services, but when compared to home, there is not a lot of difference except for the higher food prices in Hawaii. Tina has a really great place to stay and we need to go back to see the things we missed.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home, location and property. We had a lovely time with our whole family and their was plenty of room for everyone! The lovely kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils we needed for cooking. The deck was a great place to hang out and our grandkids enjoyed watching the geckos! Many things to see and do on the Big Island. We enjoyed the many beaches and our adult children loved the snorkeling. Even swam with dolphins on one of the many beaches and we saw many turtles. We had a fabulous two week stay and wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you Tina for letting us stay in your gorgeous home.

What a wonderful stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was wonderful! The atmosphere, the home, and the company present was more than we could have imagined. The place is beautiful (very spacious - perfect for multiple families sharing a home)! It's stocked with so much and more... the kids had snorkel equipment, beach gear (boogie boards), sand playing tools. The adults has beach chairs, sun screen, bug repellent... you name it. Thank you, Tina and family! Pebble Beach is just 1/2 mile down the mountain, and we stumbled upon what seemed to be our own private black sand beach as well (just a ways down from Pebble Beach)! The view from the two rooms in the back of the house is Ocean view - perfect for whale watching and dreaming. The sky was beautiful at nights, and the neighbors were friendly - everyone we met. The neighborhood cats were even a treat to our party of 10. Hawaii owes us nothing and this is large in part due to our wonderful accommodations. Thanks again to you Tina, for always answering my questions and providing tip top customer service. To all who come after us, remember that having transportation is a must! We visited Volcano and Kona many times throughout the week which were all at least a 30 minute drive or more away. Also, the house is nestled on a steep mountain - perfect for the quiet, family oriented, adventurous type of vacation. We got our exercise daily by just walking down to the beach (we usually drove back up to the house)! Enjoy your time - future guests that come next! Thank you for offering this home for rental. The pictures posted are an accurate portrayal - but doesn't do the place justice. This was our first trip to Hawaii but it won't be our last! Mahalo!

It was an awesome view!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The home was so comfortable!!!! We found that the sliders down stairs and one bathroom door upstairs needs attention. The fan in the laundry room and the one by the bar were not working well. Other than that, we had a blast!!! Hope we can do it again. Tom and Marcia Gaura

Another Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed another fantastic stay at Hale Kumu Kai. When walking in the door the house feels like everything is just the way we left it. The upgrades and upkeep are absolutely amazing. Really appreciate your diligence in maintaining the house in such a harsh environment. Love the new chairs and sectional in the living room, and moving the "old" sectional to the ohana room not only provides a place for kids to sit and play, but also a quiet space if you need to getting away and enjoy some solitude. Thank you so much Tina for letting us stay at your house again this year, and we hope to return "home" the next time we are on the Big Island.

Beautiful Home Far away from all the hassles of tourists.

  • 5 of 5

The home is big and beautiful, far enough from the tourists and the noise. It is packed with everything you need for a sort or long stay. There is no AC but with the breeze and fans the house says cool all day. Pleanty of snorkle and boogy boards to use. All new appliances washer,dryer,dishwasher there is a DVD player but no blue ray only 2 tvs in the home but with the view from the 2 room patios and the back deck looking over the ocean you don't need the tvs. Would recommend this home for any on who wants a vacation away from the busy life beautiful private beach 3min drive down the hill make sure to bring water shoes it's a rock beach great for snorkeling!
