  • Lovely place with great hosts


    We had a lovely time at Suzie and Rick’s place. They were great hosts and very accommodating. The place was great, we had everything we needed and the yard is amazing. Spent a lot of time in the pool or bbq-ing. definitely would come back. Wifi is a bit weak (if you work remotely) but works fine for Netflix and stuff.

  • Wonderful vacation rental


    The space was just as advertised. It was really great. The house is well laid out and has very comfortable furniture. The little pool was so nice - a nice way to cool off. It got sun throughout the day, but there was always a shady spot to sit and enjoy the outdoors. The neighborhood is residential and quiet. Rick and Susie were very welcoming and available if we had any questions.

  • Kona stay


    We were very satisfied with our comfortable accommodations. The apartment was clean, nicely decorated, and had a wonderful bed. The owners lived upstairs and were very welcoming and gracious. Access to a washer/dryer was important to us, and it was always available. It was only 5 minutes to downtown Kona by car, and the neighborhood was quiet.

    My only complaint has nothing to do with the hosts or the property. The added property fees, service fees, and taxes were over $1,000 for our 9 night stay, which raised the cost by over 25%. I would caution the customer to be mindful of these fees when booking.

  • The BEST Vrbo Stay – Book it!


    Suzie and Rick were phenomenal hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at their home in Kailua-Kona. It's a beautiful, clean, bright garden level apartment with access to a perfectly manicured and landscaped backyard with private swimming pool. What more can you ask for? The apartment was clean and spacious. We slept so so well at this Vrbo––which never happens. The bed was comfy and the sound of the frogs soothe you to sleep. The neighborhood and location are a 10/10 as well – super close to Kona, restaurants, action but in a relaxing neighborhood in the hills. If this ones available it's a must book!

    We really enjoyed our stay at the home, Fred and Sally both greated us and showed us the property, the grounds are just beautiful and all of the flowers were blooming. The pool was nice for a relaxing soak after a long day of sight seeing and shopping. The home had all the amenities you'd find in your own home, very comfortable and peaceful. We enjoyed our stay here very much.
