Amazing and wonderful place!-This home is absolutely amazing. The kitchen, great room, and outdoor space was wonderful! It was perfect for our family of 10. The kitchen was well stocked and the pool was amazing for the kiddos. We'd all go back in a heartbeat!
Perfect accommodation-This place did not disappoint in any way. It was the perfect accommodation for our family of six adults and four young children! The home was truly spacious and very well appointed. The grounds and exterior living area offered ample space for dining and lounging by the pool. In addition, although it was unnecessary for us to contact them during our 10 day stay, Kona Coast Vacations property managers were responsive from start to finish in planning for our vacation. They checked in with us several times to be sure all was well during our stay. This property exceeded our expectations and is a fantastic venue for a large group gathering.
Hale Akoa wasbsolutely AMAZING a!-Hale Akoa wasbsolutely AMAZING a!!!! We stayed here for my wedding with some of the wedding party and it exceeded all expectations. Everyone was in awe! The pool was heated, every room of the house was spacious and clean, the kitchen was fabulous, there were a few pool toys and some snorkeling gear to use, it was less than 10min drive from pretty much everything and only 15-20min from Costco and the airport. Just a gorgeous place!! Some tips... -Pool temp gage is on the side of the house (didn't realize til the second to last day...woops!) -Bug spray is definitely needed -A few pool toys were available, but definitely recommend bringing a few of your own -Jets in the big master tub didn't seem to work, so would check that first off and call maintenance if they're still not working -Uber is super cheap to get into town -Every room has a door to the patio and an ocean view except the room with the double beds -Couch is huge and could sleep a couple people if someone decides they don't want to share a bed :) -Keep an eye on the ocean in the morning for some whale watching
Very nice property-Very easy process - everything went smoothly
Outstanding-Exceeded our expectations in every way.
Kona Coast exceeded all our expectations-We wanted to put together a luxurious and restful vacation for our family and Kona Coast exceeded all our expectations. Sometimes our family would even just opt to stay home instead of adventuring around Hawaii (don't worry, we did adventure too!). Kona Coast was responsive even when we did have questions about our property and the sunsets were phenomenal!
Such a wonderful home-We were a family of 9, the home and grounds not only offered spaciousness so that we weren't on top of each other but an unexpected intimacy was experienced as well. The elevation of the home brought soft breezes and the views and sunsets were dreamy. The ability to open the living room to the outside was great as were the interior appointments, it was a pleasure to feel at home during our week's stay and without reservation, we highly recommend this beautiful home!
Deepest Mahalo for a wonderful vacation!-We LOVED our vacation and want to book the same place for the same week next year. The property was amazing. I have recommended you to many friends here in NY and one will be contacting you to book a place this week! Thank you for being honest and for following through with exactly what you advertised. Let us know when we can book for next year. Deepest Mahalo for a wonderful vacation! Mary Ellen Liss
Fantastic house-A fantastic house with amazing sunsets over the ocean from the patio. Waking up to the view over the ocean from the spacious bedrooms. Well equipped kitchen which was important as catering for 10 for two weeks around the World Ironman Championships was made easy. (A whisk and two mid sized pans would have been useful.) Outside seating areas provide space for chilling, reading and sunbathing around the lovely pool. Short 10 minutes drive to Kona for shopping and the Championships and easy access to the south and the volcano national parks.
Amazing House/Amazing Location-We stayed here with our 2 kids, ages 13 and 11, along with both sets of grandparents for a week's vacation. This house couldn't have worked better for this! The house is spacious and everyone had their own space. The separate "mother in law suite" was a great asset and retreat. The outside seating areas were set up well. There were plenty of places to sit and hang out but also get away from each other if we wanted. The kitchen was adequately supplied and was set up well. The grill is ok and fairly standard for a vacation rental. The pool was an adequate size and was maintained well. The pool was the highlight of our son's trip! Our biggest surprise was the neighborhood. This house is in a gated community. The neighborhood was quiet, very beautiful, nicely manicured, and very well maintained. The views from the house are spectacular and the location is great! We would definitely stay here again if we returned to the Big Island.
Aloha! On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important positive feedback. We’re elated that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Hale Akoa was great!!-Beautiful home. Exactly as pictured. It was immaculate, comfortable and included everything we could possibly need. Beautifully appointed yet extremely livable. The concierge, David, answered every question immediately and was very helpful. I would highly recommend this home and property management team.
Kona coast vacation properties was simply fabulous. Addressed every issue we had within a two hour period.
We stayed at the Hale Akoa property and was absolutely perfect for our family of 10 vacation.-The property was clean and well maintained. The pictures posted of the property do not do it justice! The kitchen was well equipped with all of the small appliances needed and most amenities needed to begin our trip. The Lani was perfect for our meals together and the view was beautiful! For our beach outings, there were beach chairs, umbrellas and sand toys for the kids in the garage. The location was centrally located for restaurants and grocery shopping. We even needed to make a trip to an Urgent Treatment center for our grandson which was less than 5 minutes from the home. David, the concierge was absolutely wonderful and very helpful with arranging a couple of our excursions and our Luau. He also helped with advice and answered any of our questions. The property management, Kona Coast Vacations, were helpful and easy to work with as well. We would absolutely stay at this location again and highly recommend this property to anyone who is planning a vacation to Hawaii.
Awesome-This home us awesome. This had to be the most relaxing vacation i have been on in a long time. The view from the house was amazing.
Pefection-Absolutely the best home we have ever had! the extra amenities, supplies, landscaping and upkeep of the home was perfection
Thank you so much for sharing it with us
Beautiful View-The perfect house for our family of 9. This home is everything you expect and more. The description, pictures, and amenities are accurate. The house is very well maintained and the Kona Coast customer service reps are fantastic. The washer broke down toward the end of our stay and they quickly took care of fixing it before we left. One of the amenities of the house is a concierge service, which I highly recommend using. David, the concierge , was great with timely responses and several suggestions. If I ever find myself going back to the Big Island, I will be renting through Kona Coast Vacation Rentals - Superb operation.
Living up to the ad-We went with 8 to celebrate 4 50th birthdays. The house was more beautiful then the pictures showed. Enough space to celebrate together and be alone if you wanted. The kitchen was amazing. More silverware, plates and cooking gear than we needed. The small issues that we had were remedied that day. The staff was very professional and did an impeccable job. It took us one day to realize that we wanted to watch every sunset from the lanai. So close to restaurants, grocery stores and downtown Kona. I can’t state how much we enjoyed the house and it’s location. I wouldn’t do the review any justice if I did not mention David from the concierge service. He guided us to the green and black sand beaches. And told us where to stop on the way for the best pastries we ever had. Whale watching, manta snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, helicopter rides, and set up a private dinner with a chef Cindy, a ukulele player and hula dancer. He answered every phone call and it is obvious he loves his job. Thank you to the home owners, Kona Coast vacations and David. Can’t wait for my wife to turn 50 so we can come back.
Beautiful home!-We walked in to a very clean and well stocked home. When we woke up the view of the ocean was amazing. Hale Akoa had all the cooking amenities you need, plenty of towels and beach extras!

Gorgeous house, great location-This was a large, gorgeous house that was perfect for our family (6 adults 5 kids). There was enough room for everyone and the pool, just off of the living room was used all day. The house is in walking distance (approx 1 mile) to Ali'i Drive and it was a short drive to restaurants, downtown Kona, grocery stores and beaches. Having a concierge was nice - we called David quite a bit. We also had a few issues with the house that were taken care of promptly which was nice.
Quiet, clean, absolutely stunning home!-Best vacation rental experience we’ve had- great home and great company to work with. David was friendly and helpful. Thanks for making our vacation great!
Wonderful memories!-I stayed here with my family as a treat to myself to start off my retirement. The house had everything we needed and was professionally managed, we were taken care of the whole time. The house being single story made it very easy for children, they couldn’t get enough of the pool. I wish we had more time to spend here.
Fantastic Home! So beautiful yet comfortable-Beautiful home. Exactly as pictured. It was immaculate, comfortable and included everything we could possibly need.

Paradise!-We have regularly stayed at VRBOs for several years now. With a family of 11 members and still growing, it has been a great alternative to hotels! I must say, we have never had a bad experience with any of them but this house was absolutely spectacular! The layout gives everyone plenty of room to be by themselves or together. Our grandchildren spent hours in the pool! The outside veranda area was huge with plenty of seating - we could all sit around the glass table shown in the opening picture! A couple of items that also stand out were the convenience of the large laundry room (we had towels washing daily) and the generous kitchen amenities. There was an abundance of silverware, glassware, and cooking utensils! We like to make family meals together and there wasn't a thing missing that we needed! The beautiful view and quick drive into Kona contributed to the experience. We have been to the big island before and will probably come again - we would definitely come back to this house!
Gorgeous home-Gorgeous home with all the amenities! The view of the ocean and sunset never ceased to amaze us during our stay. My only complaint would be the pool. Not sure why the water appeared green. We called David and he had someone out the next day. It cleared up slightly.
Aloha! On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important feedback. We are very sorry that you experienced an issue with the pool during your stay. Your concern has been shared with the management team & the property owner and the decision was made to change to another pool maintenance company. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again. Mahalo Kona Coast Vacations
We absolutely LOVED this house!-Every family/couple has their own room and bathroom. Extremely clean and well organized. The backyard and pool was the cherry on top.
Luxurious get away-This home was absolutely delightful. Just gorgeous and the view was amazing for nightly sunsets. It had all the amenities one could need, including beach chairs and towels for the lovely beaches close by. One would actually have no need to leave the property other than reloading for food. There was plenty of room for all age groups with many areas to hangout in. Large home yet very comfortable homey feel Hawaiian style. Loved it. Thank You for a wonderful time as well as being professional from the beginning thru the end.... Mahalo
Absolutely amazing home. Will come again!-This house is simply amazing. Very comfortable with an incredible ocean view. Only a short drive to town with lots of restaurants, bars and shops. We were travelling with 6 adults and 4 teenagers. Pool was a bit chilly on cloudy days, but otherwise nice. The attached ohana suite was great for my inlaws to be able to have some privacy away from the rest of the family. We will definitely be back to enjoy this home again.
Lots of aloha in the details-We couldn’t have been happier with our stay at Hale Akoa. We were absolutely impressed with the house, the decor of the house and the cleanliness. The house was beautiful with a stunning view. You could tell that the owners really cared about the house, it was stylishly decorated and perfectly cared for. Lots of aloha in the details. The house had lots of space for everyone with big rooms and we loved how the living room opened up completely onto the lanai. The house was also perfectly managed, it was very clean and it had anything and everything we could want or need. We enjoyed cooking big meals for the group in the huge kitchen that had everything a cook would need. Truly, there was nothing that was missing. Kona Coast Vacations, thanks for making everything perfect for our vacation! Date of Stay: 1/27/18 to 2/3/18
Highly recommend!-The location and view are outstanding! Perfect view of sunset each night. Great communication the entire time. Upon arrival, the wifi didn't work and they had it fixed right away. The host recommended Cindy (Smart Chef Hawaii) to prepare meals for us and she was amazing! Definitely worth it if you're interested in private meals at the home. My wife and I had a very relaxing babymoon here. Highly recommend! Date of Stay: 12/2/17 to 12/9/17
We will be returning!-We fell in love with the house with its beautiful landscaping and panoramic view. The entire family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. The kids especially had a great time. They didn’t want to leave the house to go to out to explore the island, since they were having so much fun at the pool and playing in the house. Each day started with the kids picking fresh oranges from the fruit trees and ended with a beautiful sunset dinner. For the adults, the house had great privacy and several outdoor sitting and eating areas. We cooked and barbecued a lot and the fully equipped kitchen had everything we needed. Also the 5 min drive to get to Kona restaurants, farmers market, made our stay very convenient. Date of Stay: Aug 2017
New favorite house to call home on the Big Island-We had an absolutely wonderful time in this house during our stay in Hawaii. We've stayed in many vacation rentals, both in Hawaii and elsewhere in the world, but we can happily say that this was one of our best stays. The house is great in many ways - just a few minutes drive to the center of Kailua-Kona, panoramic and unobstructed view of the ocean, private space for everyone staying in the house, luxury finishes and amenities. We can certainly say that we have our favorite house to call home on the Big Island! We bbq'd quite a lot so we wanted an extra day of trash pick-up, which was arranged quickly for us. Overall, the experience was fantastic and we hope to be back soon. Date of Stay: August 2017
