“Relaxing Vacation”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2013

Sandra was an excellent host and the location perfect for our stay. All a amenities were within a five minute drive. There was a great guide book at our disposal pointing us in the direction of our interests and I'm sure we covered more of the island during this stay than any other so far with her guidance and that of the guidebook. The accommodations were exactly what we expected and the view spectacular. Thank you so much Sandra! We will be back. Evelyn and Jim

This is a very relaxed and peaceful location. Up in the mountains overlooking the ocean you catch the gentle trade winds that cool the apartment. The owner was very helpful with our checking in and out times and the whole experience was very relaxed.

“A picturesque and quiet retreat in an ideal location”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2013

Sandra is a warm and friendly host who went out of her way to make our late night arrival as easy as possible and our entire stay an enjoyable one. She even gave us fresh fruit off her trees for breakfast on our first morning, while we sorted ourselves out and waited for the car rental company to come and get us. This condo is the perfect size for two people. It is well maintained and very quiet (no Coqui frogs!) and private. The views from the living room and bedroom are gorgeous and Sandra has clearly put a great deal of effort into keeping her gardens in beautiful condition. The kitchen, while small, has everything you need to cook a variety of hot dinners. Overall, we wanted for nothing during our stay.

“A Kona home away from home”

Reviewed 7 Mar 2013

Such a pleasant place to stay, well equipped and roomy. It's up the hill a bit where the trade winds blow. Great home base for seeing the island. Convenient to shopping. A beautiful garden setting and great avocados. Sandra was a gracious hostess.

“First rate accommodations in a lovely setting”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2013

A perfect spot to enjoy all that Kona has to offer. The home is well located between Kailua and the beaches along the coast heading north. It is very clean and well appointed with a living room, kitchen and dining area, bathroom and bedroom with an amazingly comfortable king bed. Sandra, the owner, is warm and gracious. She has the uncanny ability to be around if you have a question and not when you don't. She has lived there for many years and was invaluable in advising us on places to go to fully experience the environment and culture. As they say: "location, location, location." Far enough outside of town to make you feel you have a private retreat yet close enough to be in the heart of Kailua in 15 minutes. I highly recommend this property as a home base with which to appreciate the richness of Kona. We've already made the arrangements for our retun.

“Little slice of paradise”

Reviewed 27 Jan 2013

We stayed for a week at this unit. It was spotless, comfortable and close to beaches and activities but far away enough that it was quiet. The bed was very comfortable and the place felt very private. Sandra was a great resource for us as this was our first trip to the Big Island. She also gives a great massage. Would recommend this as a great place to stay.

“Great Kona Escape - perfect!”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2012

It was a year ago that I stayed @ Sandra's beautiful place. Since I'm returning again this year, her's was the first place that I checked since I have some friends that want to share also. However, her larger place is taken for our travel period. If I was going alone or with only 1 or 2 people, I would stay here again. Everything about the place was great - felt like a vacation & being home (or better than home I should say) @ the same time. She was a perfect hostess with great info to share also.

“I didn't want to leave!”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2012

I love this place. Total privacy, absolute value, and unparalleled beauty... what more could you ask for? Picture this: you wake up in the morning to the sounds of birds singing and the smell of fresh plumeria... you wander over to the fruit orchard and pick yourself a breakfast of fresh fruit... then you settle back into your private escape and plan out your island adventures, knowing that everything you could possibly want to experience is within a short car ride. I can honestly say that my trip to Hawaii was made exponentially better by choosing the Great Kona Escape. It truly is my new home away from home. I will definitely be back!

“Great Vacation Home..Truly a hidden gem...”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2012

Everything about the rental home was just great.. It was very clean. The location was just perfect. Sandra, the owner, is very nice and she shared a lot of information about the places to see and visit. It was very helpful as it was our first trip to Hawaii. Thanks Sandra for sharing your home with us. We liked the coconuts and fruits from your garden very much. Thank you.
