“Nice quiet place with pretty view”
We stayed in February and were very excited to find somewhere with room at the last minute. John was very friendly and tried hard to accomodate our schedule. Our room was simple but quiet and had a nice view. In the morning, John offered us fruit and eggs which was a nice unexpected surprise. Enjoyed our stay and hope to come back again!
“I would never stay there again”
I am sorry but that was one of the most dissapointing places I stayed. It started that the owner didn't know when I arrive, so I arrived at 10 pm, totally tired after a really long journey and was told that the room was not ready because he forgot my arrival date and making the excuse that he had a long day starting at 6 am and was really busy - are you kidding me I am awake since 30 hours! Then everything looked kind of messy and dirty, especially the fridge was so disgusting and the breakfast baskets were not clean at all with even mold on some fruits. The rooms itself were okay, but also full of other stuff belonging to the owner. Then I even had to move into the other room because my originally booked room wasn't ready and above this the owner moved my stuff without me being around. So actually he wanted to be helpful but I don't want to touch anyone my private things without asking me for permission. So the owner makes an effort but is overstrained.
Response from the owner Nadine was a very fortunate first time traveler She and I where so lucky to catch the glitch with the schedule on the popular site software, pretty buggy,but I was available on new years day to get her into a clean room, just had a guest today that made the mistake on her end , and we where booked ,I got her great place at another establishment. That is us We try to go the extra mile to help , we picked up,and dropped her at the other place.Don, know many places that would do that. With Nadine we did not charge for the extra cleaning fee even though the booking mishap It was not in our control. I am glad that we have a level of service that I have not received at any hotel at twice the price. Also we spent many hours helping Nadine with her first reservation experience with flip key ,and Hawaii, I have never received any help like that from any hotel even in the 450 range. Extras she got King sized bed not a futon, soap and shampoo, dance class,gave her help with local sights and restaurants, history talk,and at fruit tasting and talk , free massage, only four seasons does anything like that, kona village used too Like any place we have blind spots so we had to get rid of the shared frig, tidy the yard,change lights and the cooking area . We continue to do a continuous improvement approach, that is why it always good to give the host the knowledge of what is not working well. We have reward system for guests that have given us insights into how we can make the place much better. Rewards given for 2 days comp, chocolate fountain and a dinner pass We recently had a guest insist that we take half of there deposit as a tip Our rustic Hawaiian house with insights and Hawaiian experiences is not for every one but many people want more of a unique experience than it is just right for you ie serve 3 types of passion fruit, cherries,bread fruit , 4 kind of oranges, 6 kind of avocado, 12 kinds of citrus, 4 kind of banana, and rare fruit never served at any hotel except on rare occasions at 330-1000 night hotels
“Peaceful Sleep in Paradise with a Whale of a View”
I especially liked that it was away from the traffic of downtown Kona and close to the best beach reserve on which to learn to snorkel! And John gives a great massage to help you relax into the Hawaiian style experience and for half the price of the hotels. I like that it was a home and didn't smell of a lot of cleaning chemicals. Helpful and private with a personal touch I will return whenever I can. Thank you John for making it affordable.
