I am 70 years old and came here with my daughter and her family. We had a wonderful time and would not hesitate recommending this home to others. Loved the pool, patio and the lanai. The view of Kona and the ocean are spectacular. The home was clean and well kept. However, I would alert those that are handicapped that the property has many stairs. While I was able to negotiate the stairs others may not.

Manager's Response

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are so glad you found the property enjoyable and were able to negotiate the stairs in it. We will be sure to impart information about the stairs with future renters. We hope you'll come back and stay with us again!

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. The view is breathtaking! Sunsets are amazing. We loved that all the rooms were very well spread out. It was clean upon arrival. Few things to keep in mind: it’s a three story house-so there is a lot of steps. There is no A/C. But it’s not bad at all we always left the windows open and we got air of cool air coming it at night. Also, the driveway is very steep. We had two convertibles and scratched the bottoms of them first time we pulled up, until later we learned how to angle the car while coming up to avoid scratching. It’s manageable especially that made it up there on such low cars. Just take it slow. Other than that the house was perfect.

Myself, my husband and our two adult sons stayed at Ono Hale for two and a half weeks over June/July. We absolutely loved the house, it was clean, well equipped (plus loads of beach equipment and towels) and the chairs and beds were very comfortable - not always the case in rental properties! The gorgeous pool was a godsend to cool off in and afternoons were spent in the shade of the fantastic lanai where we could watch the sun sink slowly into the ocean. Every member of our party loved the house and Blake and the team at Knutson were very helpful and responsive. We didn't have any problems that needed attention but Blake contacted us to check that everything was OK which was appreciated. Kailua Kona is a long and expensive journey from the UK where we live but if we ever come back, and all of us would like to as the island is magical, this is where we will stay!!

Our stay at Ono hale was amazing. The one and only thing that was negative was all those stairs. There were lots. But besides that, everything was perfect. The property management was very accommodating to our needs and the home was well maintained. We are already looking to book this house again in the future. The pool is beautiful and my family enjoyed laying out for hours enjoying cocktails and really just enjoying the home. Last thing, the views from the outside lanai were breathtaking. We will definitely be staying here again.

Not quite what we were expecting, but still great!

Overall the property was just what we needed to enjoy our vacation. Beautiful view, perfect location, close to everything we wanted to do, lovely pool, great BBQ, amazing lanai overlooking Kona and the ocean!
A few things to take note of... not particularly negative, just something that potential renters should be aware of.
1. Unless you have a high clearance vehicle... do NOT go all the way up to the back of the house. I almost high centered the Nissan Quest we rented. Luckily I was going down slow so I was able to back up and after a numerous point repositioning, I was able to go at the steep incline on an angle. The driveway at the bottom is also very inclined, so be careful coming and going. Nothing too bad that angling your entry and exit won't fix. But I did catch the muffler a few times.
2. There is A LOT of stairs. We actually kinda liked them for the purpose of exercise, but if you have bad knees this house may not be the best idea for you. (But if you can handle the stairs the climb is worth the view!)
3. There is no AC. I thought there was when we booked it, but it was because the rental documents are general for ALL properties, so it was a mistake on my part. I did go out and buy two fans from Walmart to keep air circulating. Which did great.
Overall, we had a very lovely time at the house and on the Big Island!

Overall, our experience was a very good one. Beautiful grounds and pool. The house was wonderful. However, all of the towels and hand cloths need to be changed to new ones. The house does have a musty smell, especially in the lower level. The mattresses also need to be upgraded as well as bed linens. Televisions and the cable service also need to be updated. An HD tv but no HD service. Lanai is very spacious but there is mold on the support trusses.

Manager's Response

Aloha Rob,
Thank you so much for taking the time to review the gorgeous Ono Hale. The owner has agreed to change the towels, so we will buying new ones this week. The lower area of the home where there aren't any rooms a main staircase going up to the main level's smell seems to be fine at the moment. The owners are going to be replacing the older TV's with new ones the next time when they get into town. We're also looking into getting the support trusses power washed/scrubbed with jomax as we've been collecting a lot of rain these last few weeks. Thank you for your feedback. ~Blake Kessner, Broker In Charge

This is a great house with plenty of space and open floor plan. You must BOOK your car before you go. The property is up in the "Sunset" section of Kona. Close to a coffee farm and an outstanding place to buy coffee fresh! Complete kitchen, which we used. Super clean baths, bedrooms and kitchen. Great coverage deck. It's all about the VIEW!

First and foremost, we had a great vacation and loved this place. The house was beautiful with some nice gardens, a great lanai, and a stunning pool. The kitchen is well equipped, and there were a ton of swimming and beach toys to use. However, the property management was not impressive; they didn't mark the property as paid for on VRBO until the day we arrived (I had to call in long before to confirm the VRBO knew I had paid for the rental) and they didn't include a required fee in the original estimate; they also didn't collect the right amount for tax originally and charged me the difference during our stay. Still, this was pretty minor and was not nearly enough to detract from the excellent place.

Manager's Response

Aloha David,
Please accept my apologies for not meeting your expectations regarding our service. The aspect of VRBO not being shown as "paid for", I'm not sure exactly what you're referring to. We have an internal property management software for our accounting, and only use VRBO for our marketing & advertising as a channel partner. I'm sorry it seems confusing on the consumers end, I'll look into that remark. Please reach out to me to discuss what you meant by the additional fee you're referring to. Yes, 2018 did raise taxes for all bookings that started January 1st 2018 from 9.25% for the TAT tax to 10.25%, an additional 1% increase. I apologize for any inconvenience that may have caused. We're glad you enjoyed the house!! ~Blake Kessner, Broker In Charge

The house was amazing! The pictures didn't do It justice as there was way more space than expected. The lanai was the best feature. We spent most of the time on the lanai it was spacious and had fantastic views. The management was very responsive when we had an issue. We couldn't find the BBQ equipment (later found it in a box). The management came the next day with new utensils. The rental was clean and well maintained. The only drawback was limited kitchen equipment for 8 people (serving bowls,pots and pans). But I sent a list of things that would be useful for the kitchen and I expect they will address this. The location was central. We had a rental car and were able to get everywhere easily. I would recommend this place to other travellers.

From the home to the Knutson staff, this was, by far, the very best rental experience we've had ANYWHERE! Calling this home beautiful is an understatement! It's a fabulous place and deserving of any accolades given it. A fabulous lanai, incredible master bedroom, and truly usable kitchen are just 3 wonderful attributes among hundreds. Fabulous home with lots of great vibes. Blake Kessner with Knutson made this happen for us, and he has no peers!

We were a large family and everything about this property was perfect. The bedrooms could have been more, but overall a great place. There's enough room to spread around and lounge. The covered patio is awesome and the views are priceless morning and evening. The service from property manager Blake was prompt and courteous.
Only drawback was the insects due to the tropics. But it's expected anywhere in HI.
Overall, great property.

We stayed at Ono Hale for 3 nights after watching my daughter play in a volleyball tournament in Hilo. When we arrived at the house, we were amazed at how big and beautiful it was. We loved the lanai and it's view. The kids loved the pool so much so that we just spent all 3 days on property. Love this property and will definitely be back.

The positives included the location, the snorkle gear and the property. We were disappointed that the entire morning of our last day included visits by the gardiner and pool maintenance workers which kept us from using the pool and surrounding area. Plus, there was construction on the adjacent property with excess noise, which we understand was not anyone's fault-just disappointing.

This lovely property is perfect for those of us wanting to experience Hawaii from a "local" standpoint. Situated high above Kailua-Kona, the view from the tree canopy is nothing short of stunning, panoramic. We spent many a moment sitting and staring as we relished the quiet.

The house itself is stunning and unique, spacious, immaculately clean and affords privacy in each of the three bedrooms. The beds themselves are very comfortable.

The kitchen is huge and affords ample work & eating space. We do wish there'd been more prepping, storage & serving bowls.

We didn't use the beautiful pool much as it was bitterly cold, shaded by foliage and a bit of a trek to & from (we are seniors).

The other aspect of the property we hadn't counted on was the steep grade getting to and from it. Once we figured out how to navigate the driveway it wasn't a problem, but we didn't enjoy our usual daily walks because the roads were quite steep to navigate.

Access to tourist attractions, shopping and the like was easy & convenient.

Awesome house! Amazing sunset views from the huge well protected lanai. The house itself is almost too big when spending so much time outside! Only draw back is that the house interior is not very toddler friendly as the big stair case is difficult to block but my little one had a blast on the carpeted lanai.

We had a very relaxing time at the home. The only problem with the rental is that you may scuttle some of your Kona-area plans to just stay at the house. The main deck is enormous and completely covered giving shelter when it rains and providing a 15-mile view from left to right. Beds have excellent linens and are high quality, as are the towels. Good luck keeping happy children out of the pool!

Incredible home. Incredible amenities. Best lanai in Hawaii. A wonderful, unmatched, view, 3 trees full of lucious, juicy, Kona oranges, and a family of silly turkeys. This place is The Garden of Eden!!

My family had a comfortable stay for the Labor day weekend with plenty of room for some friends we hosted.The price was reasonable and the kids enjoyed the pool. We cooked every night so the large kitchen was very helpful. If kona is our destination in the future I'll be looking for this property again

this made the trip to Hawaii experience very great. the pool for the kids having the master bedroom upstairs overlooking the vegetation and ocean. just a great way to vacation wish there was AC in the house very hot but the property manager did go buy us 3 fans to help.. if I was the house owner id invest in ac in the rooms.

Aloha David,
Thank you so much for your review on our Ono Hale! Yes, we can totally relate how hot it can be during the summer. This summer seemed to be an exceptionally hot one. Usually, Kona does not get this hot. We hope to welcome you back again in the future!!-Knutson & Associates, Property Management

the accommodations were excellent, beautiful place and all the amenities needed. they had even sunscreen, beach chairs and snorkel equipment. the view was superb. the pool was quite a treat. the only set back was the distance from the best beaches. make sure you know what you want to see at the island.

This is a wonderful property though the steep driveway challenging. Recycle bins for the property would be helpful, as well as extra paper goods. Not having extra TP and paper towels was rather unusual and not the industry standard. Little to no sun at the pool due to vegetation but lovely none the less. There were scuff marks on floor by kitchen when we checked in and some dust/debris behind doors. Many insects in house-roaches and centipedes seen. Because we had no information on wehre to find beach supplies we did not know they were downstairs-and rented equipment. The information is not in the guest book. Grill needs cleaning also.

Manager's Response

Aloha Cindy,
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our gorgeous Ono Hale. Our rental agreement does state that we only provider a starter pack for 's not intended to last the duration of your stay. We will ensure our cleaners get the message about paying extra attention to the details, especially behind the doors/grill. We have our quarterly pest control service scheduled this week to address any potential pests.
Mahalo!!

The house was incredible! We loved it. Beautiful, exceptionally clean, and very well stocked. It had lots of space and a great energy. Located a bit up the mountain, it was nice and cool, very quiet, and when the moon wasn't too bright there was tremendous star gazing. Just a short drive to town but still felt isolated. Perfect location. We didn't want to leave!

Jaw dropping is the only way to describe this property! My friends and I felt like millionaires living here as the property is beautifully finished and the view to the ocean is to die for. The pictures really do not do it justice. Great amenities and spotless throughout. The management company were great, dropping round a requested spare key and the booking process was smooth and straightforward. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this property or the company managing it. My only suggestion would be a stored camp bed to use in one of the rooms to avoid using the sofa bed in the main lounge (yes - there are two!) or if or use by any children staying. However, the absence of this did not cause us any huge issues. We have already discussed our desire to return to Big Island and if this property was available, we would book it again in a heartbeat. I'd recommend this property to anyone who stands still long enough for me to gush about it. I even took a video to show my family how incredible it was. Loved it!!!!

This is the most awesome house. The spaciousness is absolutely amazing. Everyone of us were in awe. The home is absolutely gorgeous inside and out. The landscaping private and gorgeous. Icing on the cake was the private pool. We used it at least two to three times a day. A total jewel.

I love this house! The hone is beautiful and immaculate, the grounds and pool are wonderful. The generosity and hospitality of the owner and care taker make you feel right at home.
The only negative would be that there are many stairs and a steep driveway that would make this difficult for anyone with difficulty walking.
The views are incredible as are the lanais.

Beautiful home; excellent caretakers

Gorgeous, spacious home with more than enough outside space. Wonderful for outdoor eating, on the lanai or poolside or on the back deck. Cared for outside daily; gas supplied for grill without asking. Upstairs master bedroom has private balcony and very large, well appointed master bath. Home easily accommodated our group of 5 (3 adults, 2 teens). Good location with great views. Onsite caretakers a nice touch.

Perfect family vacation!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ono Hale. Our family of two adults and three teenagers couldn't have been more comfortable. The view is fabulous, the location is perfect, and the home is clean and spacious. The management company was quick to respond to a minor maintenance issue we raised. We can't recommend this place highly enough!
