I hardly ever write public reviews on anything, but I felt it was necessary to review this property after spending an excellent week here with my family. First off, the reason I selected this property was because of the great location next to Magic Sands Beach, and after spending about a week there, that was one of the most outstanding things about this property. This house is about a 5-minute walk to the beach and a 2-minute drive, with plenty of free parking available. This is one of the only nice beaches anywhere near Kailua-Kona, without driving north for about 45 minutes, so this is huge.
After initially looking at this listing on airbnb, I wasn't impressed with the house after looking at the listing, and the reason for that is the mediocre quality pictures. What I can tell you is that the pictures on the listing don't show you just how nice this house is. As soon as we walked onto the property, we felt like we were staying at an MTV Cribs house, and after a week of staying there, I can tell you that the layout, furnishings, outdoor area, and overall level of comfort at this house is truly outstanding. This is a luxury home with a luxury pool and outdoor kitchen/entertaining area, and the house is one of the nicest rentals in this area, in a quiet and secluded upscale neighborhood. Based on what the mortgage would be for me to buy this house, the price we paid for a week stay was an incredible deal.
The last thing I'll say is that Peter and his associate are a pleasure to deal with, and they are extremely responsive. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, and I will actively seek this house out during our next trip to the island.
