As advertised, but better than I expected!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my grown family of 7 to help celebrate our 30th Anniversary. I was a little apprehensive as this was a big trip for us and we had never been to Hawaii before, so I wanted to make sure everything was perfect. This house and location helped make it the perfect trip. First, it is located in a private gated community with about 7 to 8 other $1-2 million dollar homes on acreage. But this house is less than 1 mile from the main road, so it is so easy to get on and off the main road and you can hear the ocean waves from the pool and deck. So, you feel secluded, but not isolated. Magic Sands Beach is walking distance. It is one of the few white sand beaches on this Island. Perfect boogie board waves. Best Snorkel beach is 1.5 miles away. We drove the 4 minutes each day so we could bring lots of chairs, boards and coolers. Then everyone could just walk back to the house if they wanted to take a nap, grab a snack, etc... The garage is filled with beach stuff, so check it out before you buy anything. At least 7 beach chairs, boogie boards, masks and snorkels, etc... to go along with pool toys and coolers. Also, I was very happy with how close we were to the strip with great shops and restaurants. Strip is 7-10 min drive. Grocery Stores, Walmart etc..within 10-15 min drive. You can always make a place look bigger on-line with the right photos, but the kitchen, dining and living areas are larger than I thought they would be. There are two large bedrooms/full bathrooms on the pool side and 3 more large bedrooms / full bathrooms on the aft side. Plenty of room for everyone to have privacy and plenty of room for everyone to be together. All rooms have central Air Conditioning which was needed during our August visit (temps in the 90s some days). The kitchen has everything. We hired a private chef one night who also brought some hula dancing entertainment. He is a professional chef and was very happy with the kitchen set-up and amble kitchen supplies. The dancers had plenty of room to set up and entertain us on the deck by the pool. The sunsets were breathtaking. The beds are comfortable. The TVs have cable and there is a central stereo system for music in the living room and pool deck. Zac was awesome. When we arrived the WIFI was down. One phone call and he personally came out and had it fixed. If you want more details, or info on the Chef, contact Zac and he can get you my contact info. 5 Stars for Sure!!!

Great Family vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This home is very close to 2 beaches, and one great snorkeling location if you are willing to swim out aways. It is 200 yards south of Magic Sands beach in a small cove .

A short drive to Kailua-Kona for shops , water activities, and restaurants. The home is in a very quiet guarded community and a very short walk to the ocean.

When we stayed, there were 2 beach chairs and 2 small umbrellas,floating stuff for the beautiful pool, and lots of snorkeling stuff left by other families. The 2 suites in the main house are great and the 3 other rooms worked out great for in laws and kids.

Lots of birds in the morning, mongoose in the outer gardens , and we even saw a wild pig at night looking for food.

The land scraping is very nice and adds to the Hawaiian charm.

The small things that need fixing are just part of a VRBO rental as we also rent out our home in the California desert through VRBO.

The home was gorgeous and the view of the ocean was just as gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful with two gorgeous master rooms. Large kitchen and eating area for our huge group. The pool was lovely and warm. The house is located very close to the beach where we walked each day, it’s also close to downtown Kona!

Spacious home in great Kona location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this property. Even though the air was quite hazy, negatively impacted by the recent volcano eruptions, we still loved the location. It's within a 30 min. drive to some of the best snorkeling to be found anywhere on the Hawaiian islands. There are a few small sandy beaches within a walk-able distance. We also drove to the Kohala coast beaches a couple of times during our stay. The home was well stocked, and perfect for our family of 10. It was so nice having a full bathroom attached to all 5 bedrooms. There are 10 beach towels for your use, several beach mats, 2 beach chairs and misc. pool and beach toys. There are also 10+ pool side loungers. The pool is so lovely--better than some resorts we've stayed at. The owner was very responsive to any questions or concerns. The only negatives we noticed at the property are some lifting tile on the patio areas, and, while the home was clean enough, there were a few areas that could use a deep cleaning (walls and door trim wiped down, etc.) We would definitely recommend this property, in fact, we already have friends who are considering booking it for a vacation later this year.

Amazing pool and house!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! We had our extended family staying here for 10 days and we had 5 kids and 5 adults and the pool was where we spent most of our days. We also went down to magic sands beach about 5 min walk where we played in the white sand and went booth boarding. We will miss this place, but we will come back soon. Thanks!!

Amazing Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I have to share your experience to all that reads this.

Zacks retreat is one of the best places to be removed yet close to everything in Kona- Kilauea. This gated community provided a safe haven for our family. The house comfortably has 5 bedrooms all with in suite bathrooms. Everyone got to spread out. The kitchen and main room are comfortable but most important are the big sliding doors to the lani and pool where we spent 95 percent of our time. From coffee thru after dinner drinks this was our hang out. The pool was magnificent. Be prepared for the best sunsets of your life at this retreat from the pool deck. Driving into the covered carport made us feel very welcome.
