Guest Reviews of Honl's Beach Hale (Big Island)

Kailua Kona , HI

Beautiful central beach location

         
Review by Wendy Chan
Our family of 6 adults had a wonderful time staying at this beach house. There is a large parking space, & a great patio with table & chairs for enjoying meals while watching the the ocean. Plenty of room in the house, & it is a nice quiet neighbourhood. They provided beach towels, & there is an outside shower. Be aware, there are only 3 beds. 2 kings & a queen. Photo on rental page showed 4 beds, 2 queens & 2 singles. This rental company has wonderful concierge staff, that helped us pre-book all our activities online before we arrived in Hawaii. Only item I might suggest is they replace some appliances that are showing a bit age & use. But I will definitely recommend this home for families & group of friends to stay. We had a great time here.

Kailua-Kona trip Feb 2020

         
Review by Lisa Duffy
The house is in a perfect location so we were within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and the market. The guys enjoyed fishing off the rocks and mornings on the lanai allowed us to whale and dolphin watch almost daily. It was an amazing trip!

Fabulous Location!

         
Review by Alex Kaye
Honl’s Beach Hale was excellent!! We loved eating on the lanai with a beautiful view of the ocean and the property itself was well taken care of. We saw whales spouting and enjoyed sunsets in the hot tub. The house is nicely equipped with lots of things that made our stay easier... lots of kitchen supplies, a cooler, beach chairs, etc. It exceeded our expectations and we would definitely stay there again. Highly recommended!

Great location! Great outdoor shower!

         
Review by Daniel Zehnder
Great location that is walking distance from many restaurants. The unit itself could use some updating and maintenance. The checkin and checkout couldn't have been any easier. The hot tub, and outside shower, were utilized every day.
4 out of 5 stars

Incredible place!

         
Review by Nate Fisher
Incredible place! Our group had a great visit. Check-in and out was easy, the location is perfect, the house offers enough amenities. Easy walk into town and great access to a beach just up the road. Air conditioning units in the bedrooms is a nice touch to help cool off. We got a great price and value, especially with multiple people/couples staying with us. That said, having more than 6 at the house can make it feel a little crowded.

Great views!

         
Review by Casey Schmillen
We loved the house. It had an outdoor shower with amazing views. It sleeps several people so my family or 7 was able to spread out and enjoy our stay. The house is located at the busiest part of Kona so you do hear quite a bit of traffic passing the house all hours of the night. Only thing that could make the house outstanding would be to have a gate at the entrance installed. We did experience a homeless person camped out in front of the house one night and bums going through the garbage in the driveway.

Amazing oceanfront home

         
Review by Roy Miner
Amazing property with snorkeling out your back door and beach literally next door. Close to everything on the west side of Big Island. Property had everything you needed and more.

Basecamp kona

         
Review by Joe Stellwagon
This is a well maintained, cute looking home within 10 mins walk of the restaurants and shops in Kona and a 10 min drive to a few different grocery stores. My family of 7 used it as a basecamp to interminently explore the island over our 8 day stay. There is a 3-ring binder /instruction book that you should sit down and read that explains the house's functions and local information. The 3 bedrooms provided good space and one person sleeping on the couch. Plenty of hot water for showers. We all like use of the 4 person hot tub on the patio overlooking the ocean and watching people surf. There are snorkel supplies to use and I snorkeled right off our patio when the ocean was calm. Wonderful fish, sea turtle, sea cucumber, but lots of sea urchins. The beach next door is nice, not very busy with nice sand; however, you need water shoes due to rocks and sea urchins to be in it safely. There are other nearby beaches with sandy bottoms. The kitchen was very functionable. Hawaii doesn't use plastic bags at the grocery stores and there is a bin of reusable bags to take with you. I like the grcoery store Safeway the best. There is a first aid kit too. The washer and dryer worked well. The property manager communicated quickly with me via email. My only suggestion is it would be nice to have a shower curtain for the outdoor shower that you can slid across the end of the patio to block the view of others outside on the patio when disrobing to shower to get the sand off of you. We bought some twine and a shower curtain at Walmart and it worked well but a more permanent solution would be better. I'm recommending this rental to my friends. Mahalo????�

This is a great place

         
Review by Jim Bone
This is a great place. We enjoyed the view and the open air design right on the beach. The hot tub was great. They have even installed bedroom AC units for sleeping that are not listed but definitely not needed for the rest of the house. Check in and out was simple and the neighborhood was great but the yard and house were private. We could walk anywhere as it was close to town. Don't pass on this place. We would love to stay again.

Caryn was a great guest! We’d be more than happy to host her again anytime. She took great care of our property, left it clean and tidy, and was a pleasure to speak with. Highly Recommended!

Well maintained Oceanfront Property!

         
Review by Luis Rodriguez
Small, well maintained and very clean 3 bedroom oceanfront property. Beautiful views of the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. No A/C, could use a few more fans. No range hood in the kitchen.

Great View and Location

         
Review by Christine Tudury
My family of six, ranging in ages from 3 y/o to 70, all enjoyed our five-days at Honl's Beach Hale. I’m posting a 4-star review, as a balance between 5-stars for location and view, and 3-stars for amenities.

A fun and beautiful place to stay in Kona!

         
Review by William Phillips
We really enjoyed the House. The views are incredible!! The house was spacious enough to accomdate our family of 5 plus 2 visitors we brought with us. We enjoyed it so much that we were sad to turn in the keys when we left and wished we were back in the house when we got into our hotel in Hilo. It was nice to be able to walk a few blocks down to get dinner or ice cream. From the house we could see dolphins, people parasailing, paddle canoes, and gorgeous sunsets. Wish we were still there! ❤️

The perfect spot!

         
Review by Jessica Kirkwood
We stayed 8 nights with our two kids (12 and 13) and this was the perfect base. The house is right on the ocean and all the shared space - kitchen, dining room, living room, outdoor shower, lawn and patio are right on the ocean. While it's not a beach (it's rock/lava), there is a beach two doors down. The waves and the ocean breeze are right in front of you every minute you're not out touring the island. Forget making reservations at expensive restaurants with an ocean view. There is no nicer sunset view than the one from the dining room table of this house. Make dinner or eat take out in your outdoor dining room with a view of the sunset and surfers any night you want! The kitchen has everything you'll need. There's a gas grill as well. There are beach towels for your use, binoculars, and a cooler for your day trips. There's reliable, fast WIFI if you need it and two large, flat screen tvs (though why watch TV when you can watch the ocean?) There isn't any air conditioning, but we found we didn't miss it unless we were in the house mid-day, but we weren't often home then - out doing activities mostly. At night the breeze and the fans cooled the place off plenty to sleep comfortably. We all enjoyed the outdoor shower. I don't think we showered inside the house once. There's a washer and dryer, so don't bother overpacking. I would stay here again and highly recommend it as a perfect place to use as a base to explore the whole island, knowing that when you get back to the place you're sleeping, it's just as great as al the places and things you may have seen while you were out. Loved it!

Excellent stay!

         
Review by James Frager
Our family of 6 enjoyed this place to the max! Sightseeing, snorkling and beach during the day and relaxation in the afternoons looking at the sunset from the Lanai and backyard. We took a 10 min walk to the Hotel that had the Luau we attended and we spent sometime on Alii Drive window shopping, souvenir shopping and eating at the various restaurants. All that we needed was close by, including Safeway (a short trip by car). A great place and a great first stay in Hawaii. We can't wait to be back!

Review by Matt J
This location is AMAZING! Very close walking distance (3 houses) to a great beach (really nice sand, great snorkeling), and walking distance to town (restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, etc.) make this an IDEAL spot that we'll return to many times. And the views off the patio itself are as promised and truly unparalleled! One day we watched dolphin jumping around fairly close to us, and every night we saw amazing Hawaiian ocean sunsets, all while we sat on the porch! Outdoor shower is also a huge bonus-you gotta give it a shot (though there's indoor showers, too). So comfortable and cozy, my wife and teenage daughters (and I) loved it. Everything was clean and as stated, and the property manager gave me a courtesy call after we arrived to make sure we were settled in and everything was aok. BTW we loved Huggos, Island Lava Java (walked to those), and Umeke's (delish poke). We had a great time at Honl's Beach Hale, and we'll be returning!!!! Can't wait to get back! Thank you!

Review by James Frager
This is a truly AWESOME location! Just a short walk away (3 houses) from a great beach (really nice sand, excellent snorkeling) and just a walk away from town (restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, etc). make this an ideal spot to which we'll return many times. And the views are amazing! We saw dolphin jumping nearby and we watched amazing Hawaiian ocean sunsets every night from the patio. A comfortable and cozy spot, my wife and teenage daughters loved it. All was as advertised, and everything was clean and well maintained. The property manager even gave me a call the day after we arrived to make sure we were settled and everything was aok. BTW we loved Huggos and Island Lava Java (walked to it) and Umeke's (great poke). Cannot wait to return to Honl's Beach Hale! Thank you!

Oceanfront bungalow close to town

         
Review by Michael Witcher
Small house with everything we could need, close to white sand beach and Kona village. Bbq'd and cooked every day made this the perfect hang out close to local beach. Then a walk downtown for drinks, music and dancing in the evening.

Loved the location and views

         
Review by Deborah Hempel-Medina
Had a great time here. Was fun to watch the dolphins play our first morning and the senset and moonset (full moon while we were there) views were amazing. Close - but not too close - to activities. A couple of things to note due to when the house was built. There's not A/C or a dishwasher. Given the shoreline view from the kitchen sink, washing dishes wasn't a chore at all. We knew before we came there was no A/C - just sharing so others don't have to ask. That said, it took a day or two to adjust to the temps/humidity. Lots of fans in the house helped. Also, the bedroom with the king bed has a single (~3") step down. Not a big deal for most, but might be helpful for some to know. Also, the driveway is gravely and there are two steps into the house. Mom's knee issues cause me to notice these things. Was a great place for us. Thanks so much!

Review by Mary Schmidt
Amazing property great location!! We loved it here! Wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful sunsets and the outdoor shower was wonderful. We didn't even use the indoor shower. The location was perfect. Easy walk to downtown shops and restaurants. This house was my mother in law's favorite thing about Kona...she didn't want to leave. Would recommend to anyone staying in Kona.

Awesome location and view with older kitchen

         
Review by Jill Peterson
We loved location and the views. The kitchen was small and no dishwasher as well as limited cutlery. Refrigerator is small. Shower outside was great but overall waterpressure is lacking. We had great dinners on the lanai and decore was neat. Nice to stay in a house vs condo.

Fantasic, private, great location, 10 min drive to beautiful sandy beach!

         
Review by Kelly Hougham
We had a great vacation here. This place has all you need. Beach chairs, towels, boogie board, all snorkel gear, even binoculars! Listen to the surf all day. We were able to walk everywhere we needed, market, shopping, restaurants..... and the outdoor shower was amazing, we didn't even use the indoor showers. Comfy beds too!

Honl's Beach Hale - four doors from surfing beach and a half mile to Kailua/ Kona

         
Review by Robert Hixon
Comfortable, Casual Beach house. Great for our family, who loved boogey boarding at Honl's Beach. My wife and I snorkeled at calm wave times and there were lots of beautiful fish. Location was very good because the kids could walk the half mile to Kailua - Kona with the restaurants and stores. We all used the wifi and two TV's. Kitchen was small, but had everything.

INCREDIBLE Beach House Making for a Perfect Stay in Kona!

         
Review by Jillian Frager
Wow, what a beautiful little beach front home! It has a very homey and comfortable feel, while also feeling spacious at the same time due to the open layout. We were very impressed by all the amenities provided, including beach toys & chairs, a multitude of kitchen appliances, games, towels, and an awesome grill. The proximity to town is ideal - a close 5 minute walk to some of the top restaurants, shops and bars in Kona. Plus you seriously cannot beat an ocean view like this has...enjoying breakfast on the porch overlooking the beautiful water & waves in the sunshine, and then using the incredible outdoor shower while watching the sunset after a full day. Most days of our stay we spent at least half the day at the house because it was so beautiful, relaxing and right on the water. When we did adventure out, we found we were in close proximity to amazing other beaches, hikes and coffee plantations. The house's location also has a very local feel, which we loved as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone traveling to Kona - I am already trying to plan my next trip back!

The Perfect Ocean Front Beach House!!!

         
Review by Robert Hixon
I am still in awe! This beautiful beach home has everything you need. It was casual, comfortable, and clean. Very family friendly. My son loved the beach toys and the games! The best part of all is how close we were to shops and restaurants. That was definitely a pleasant surprise as we didn't rent a car. We're already planning our next trip to this Kona beach house. We are looking forward to the glorious sunshine, gorgeous blue water, and the beautiful sunsets. I will definitely be recommending this house to everyone! If you are looking for amazing accommodations, BEAUTIFUL views, surfing waters, with the local feel, then this the beach house for you! Book it! You won't regret it!

Love this place! Our friends rented it before but now it's been completely redone. It's fun to be able to walk in to town. Bongo Bens for breakfast is our new go to. My wife liked Dons Mai Tai bar, 1 block away at the Royal Kona Resort. Thursday nights they have live entertainment. Our sons rented boards across the street and had a blast! We could actually watch them from the front yard. We found Honls Beach Hale to be very clean and comfortable. It's not super fancy but neither is Kona and we love that.

Review by Robert Hixon
What an incredible transformation this property has had! We had stayed here a couple years ago and it was all about the location but now the place is so comfortable and decorated so fun! We love being able to go to sleep and wake up looking at the ocean there is just nothing so totally relaxing while having our morning coffee or sunset glass of wine. I could never get tired of the color of the water out front! We snorkeled right in front and my husband surfed and we both fell in love with the big outdoor shower. At night we just chilled in front of the giant flat screen smart T.V. After our initial trip to the grocery store we pretty much just walked everywhere almost didn't need the car- they also just installed a blue bike rental station just a few blocks away which was fun. We will definitely be back and I want to stay longer-- this place is magical!

Absolutely wonderful place right on the water. We really were impressed by the recent renovations completed. There is a sandy beach a few doors down and the surf was actually extremely fun. Totally coming back again!

The place was recently remodeled and updated and is right on the ocean within walking distance to the beach and the Kailua Kona village. Great surf spot too. We found the place comfortable and the location close to everything we needed. The property was very clean and well maintained.

Great location! Close to restaurants, shops and hotels.

         
Review by Gail K
It was great being on the water watching for whales and viewing the spectacular sunsets. The bedrooms were very warm for sleeping. One bedroom had an AC unit hooked up but it wasn't very efficient. The other two bedrooms had the same AC units in their respective bedroom closets waiting for the exhaust parts to arrive from the mainland. Elishi was wonderful. - responded quickly and very pleasant.
