Exceptional property and management
by Benjamin O
Let me start by saying, our stay exceeded our expectations. If i'm honest, the home listing does not do this property due service. The place is massive. To say it 'sleeps 16' is really saying, it sleeps 16 EXTREMELY comfortably. I think you could probably get 25 people in there. Each room had its own bathroom which was great. Not that this can be changed, but the only thing I can think that would be better would have been to have a bathroom accessible from the pool so that people didn't track wet feet in. The gated home and driveway could probably fit 7 cars pretty easily (again, easily...10 or more if needed) and felt quite luxurious. The pool would be better equated to a small pond (in size, immaculately clean). If I were to provide 1 area of feedback, it would be the temperature of the pool. I personally, like a good chill but for the most part, not many were comfortable staying in long. It was usually a quick dip and then into the hot tub (which was great and heated up very quickly). I'm guessing that in the summer months, the pool temperature is perfect but if there was solar heating or some way to have the pool warmer in the winter, that would have been perfect. my group couldn't say enough about all the little things the place had. In addition, the rental company was extremely responsive. We emailed in the evening and got responses that night; one of the 2 microwaves died during our stay and we were fine with just the one, but we notified the rental company and they had it replaced in less than 48 hours. Great service! We were originally a family of 14 and ended up being a family of 10 so we were extremely comfortable. My 16-year-old daughter got her own room which was a huge bonus. All in all, while not on the beach, the home was a comfortable drive to pretty much everything and we would absolutely recommend this place to everyone and would rebook it in a heartbeat. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. It made for a magically family vacation.

Coffey clan visit to Kona
by Joyce C
All was excellent. There were a few swimming pool items items we needed to clean upon arrival. We cleaned out the pool items’ box and washed the sand out of everything. Not a big deal. We washed out this pool box before we left. A couple of items, lights and smoke alarms, malfunctioned during our stay but these were quickly repaired. Everyone we spoke with and met was professional and courteous. We enjoyed the stay immensely and plan to return to Kona. The next time we will not have our entire family so we will need a smaller location. Thanks for a great time had by all.

Wonderful experience with Elite
by James Burgess
We have a wonderful experience with Elite. For my 40th birthday, a group of 14 of us stayed at the O'oma Plantation Home on the Big Island. The home was easily accessible from the Kona airport and had plenty of parking. The home itself is beautiful and well-appointed. We made full use of the large kitchen, pool, and jacuzzi. Everyone raved about how comfortable the beds were, and they loved the fact that each bedroom had an en suite bath. The views of the ocean are phenomenal. We were initially concerned that we would not have air conditioning, but it was cool at night and no one reported any trouble sleeping with the ceiling fans going. Elite was kind enough to allow us a late checkout after many in our group had late-night flights from Kona back to the mainland.

Wonderful property, perfect for our family vacation of 19. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Stay at O'oma Plantation
The stay was great! Plenty of space for a large group. Pool was lovely even without being heated and well used. Some natural wear and tear from being a rental on a beautiful property. Could have used a deck of cards.
Our large group had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. We found the place very clean and stocked with everything a group could possibly need. We spent the majority of time out on the back deck taking in cool breezes. Unfortunately, the volcano disrupted our ocean view but that is no fault to the property. I would definitely stay here again!!
Best vacation ever
We had the most fantastic vacation ever. Our family loved the house and the location was great. The pool was a little cool at times, but that didn't stop the grandkids from spenting lots of time in it. We had a large group at the house (17) and to cook for that many the kitchen could use more equipment, bowl, spoons, spatulas, and pans. We did purchase a electric griddle that we left for future use. Thank you. Thank you. We would definitely recommend this house to others. Great memories were made. Thanks Nick at Boundless Hawaii for all your help.

Huge -- 7 bedrooms, 7 bath, large living areas, large well-equipped kitchen; large pool, heated spa; endless view of ocean and majestic sunsets. Perfect for 3-week family reunion of 11 adults and four young children. Property manager -- Boundless Hawaii -- was instantly responsive on the few occasions we called. Location was excellent but requires car travel to beaches and to town (and for shopping). A grand property; grand professionalism by Boundless Hawaii; a grand vacation.

Chance of a lifetime
We my family (17 members) my children and their children. Such a great opportunity! I give praise to the Lord and thank HIM greatly! We had a wonderful stay and pool was a plus. We all slept comfortably and were comfortable. We especially love the pool and adult time at the Jacuzzi. A few minor things the toaster is a four slot toaster but only two slots work and we needed the four slots to work. Also the rule to throw everything out of the frig (food) but good eggs, good water etc. Thought the rule should be leave what can be salvaged not leftovers but good food eggs, packages that are not opened, perhaps the cleaning staff can make use of it. Frig ice maker didn't work a the bed upstairs needed to be a king bed not twin size. However, all in all we had a great stay and a wonderful time!
Family reunion on the Big Island
We had a great time at this rental, 11 adults and 2 kids. Pros: everyone had own bathroom attached to their room, close to airport and Costco, beautiful ocean view up on a high hill above Kona, and house was clean and spacious. Cons: main con is there is a beautiful pool but it is not heated so we used the hot tub a lot but not the pool. Also, one of the days we were there was fairly warm and a/c would have been nice but we were thankful for the ocean breeze and fans in every room.

Great place to stay for a Large group.
The place was great. We had a large group. We all had our own rooms and bathrooms. The Kitchen even fit us. The only complaint I have was that the hot tub was not hot upon arrival which I had asked for.

6 nights in October
Our overall experience at O'oma was good. The house is as described, seven bedrooms, private pool & spa, with spectacular ocean views. It was a nice place to relax and spend time with family and friends. We enjoyed the space and the quiet location provided. The management company was very helpful from the beginning of our booking and throughout the majority of out stay. There were some communication misses with one of the agents that led me to asking to speak to the person in charge. It took an entire business day to get resolution of the problems we encountered. Although beautiful, the house is in need of a few things to make the cost of it worth staying at. The kitchen does not have many items that you would need for a large group such as large bowls, plates, cooking utensils (spoons/spatula/tongs/measuring cups), plates/bowls. The BBQ is broken and filfthy and needs to be replaced. We spent an hour cleaning the grills and the top of it is being held together with a screwdriver. The theater room is not as described. The surround sound, cable network, and DVD player do not work. A maintenance man came twice to fix them but there was not any resolution. It was a good thing we brought our AppleTV so we were able to watch tv/movies. The cleanliness of the kitchen did not meet our standards. Deep cleaning around the kitchen has not been completed in a number of months. The vents over the stove were covered in multiple layers of flies (pictures were sent to the) and the sink was leaking causing a moldy smell near the sink. If we were to come back with a large group again, I would consider staying at O'oma with reservations butI would explore other homes. Christina with Boundless Hawaii was great to work with.
Wonderful Vacation in Paradise!
We were part of a wonderful 2 wk stay for an awesome family reunion! Everything was perfect. All bedrooms are well appointed with beautiful views from the 4 poolside masters. The kitchen was well equipped - a possible addition could be a big pasta pot and drainer to accommodate cooking for large groups and another cooler to store beverages to free up space in the fridge. There were 15 in our group -ages ranging from 2 to 73 and everyone was quite comfortable. Add’l fans in the bedrooms were a nice touch -we were always comfortable sleeping and the temperature was never too hot. The pool and jacuzzi were absolutely awesome. Most of our home time was spent on the expansive lanai! The views are unbeatable! We were conveniently located to beautiful beaches and shopping -downtown Kona is only about 20 min away and Costco is only about 10 min. away -which served us well! We would definitely recommend this vacation property to others. There is so much to do in such a short distance, you will never be lacking activities though it will be hard to leave the lanai - always nice to come back to after a long day of beaching, shopping or site seeing! We highly recommend a day at A-beach with a lunch snack or happy hour at the Lava Lava beach club right on the water to the left of the beach. Kids did paddle boarding at this beach and had a blast. Hapuna Beach is also one of our favorites. You won't find a more beautiful beach on Hawaii. Another of our favorite spots is 2 step beach next to the City of Refuge Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park (another great visit). The snorkeling there is out of this world, just be careful walking out on the lava –stay where lava is dry – this can be dangerous. On the way back, stop by Kaaloa's Super J's for delicious homemade LauLau's. (recommended by Andrew Zimmern!) and then get gelato at Gypsea Gelato. YUM! We had a GREAT vacation! Looking forward to returning to the Big Island!
We loved our stay at the O'Oma Plantation, our second stay there, once in 2012 for our 50th Anniversary, and June of 2015. We didn't even look for other accommodations when we planned this trip with 13 others because of the wonderful time we had in 2012. Everyone loved the home, and all the amenities such as the beautiful pool, hot tub, lanai, landscaping, kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, laundry facilities, grounds and cleanliness, etc.
Amazing 5 nights an experience my basketball team will never forget. Big enough to give everyone their own space when needed but most of the the everyone gathered together for an awesome team bonding. The weekend was pretty chilly so swimming wasn't exciting for the kids cause the water was freezing cold. They spent more time in the hot tub. The estate was clean and had everything we needed. The kitchen items was limited to prepare meals for a large group but we managed. We would highly recommend this property and my team is already asking if we will return again next year. Mahalo to boundless Hawaii for your excellent customer service from beginning to end...
Great place to relax
wonderful home for a great vacation. very central on the island for all you want to do. quiet neighborhood, close to amenities. upstairs area should have a big bed but the daybed sufficed for our needs. more than enough room. will definitely be going back!

The perfect Hawaiian house for a large group!
We were a group of 17 women staying in this beautiful place and there was enough room for all of us to gather together when we wanted or have our own space when we felt like it. The 2 bedrooms with the double beds were a little small for 4 adults, and would have been better either for just 2 people or 4 kids, but we made it work. The furnishings were great but could have benefitted from some pictures on the walls. Some extra blankets and pillows would be nice. With such a large group we had several cars and there was more than enough room for all. It is very close to the airport and the town of Kona and more importantly Costco!

We had a fabulous time. The house was the perfect place for our retreat. Everyone enjoyed the pool and the hot-tub, it was the icing on the cake.

Our family reunion on the Big Island
The house was beautiful & well equipped . We had a few items that needed to be taken care of, ice maker not working, refrigerator not cooling adequately, extra linens needed since we had 17 , but the management team was very prompt in taking care of all items
Extremely comfortable stay !
We have stayed this house with 16 family 4 nights in August. It was much more great experience than we expected. Big enough public space with pool and spa. The view from the lanai is special ! Morning,daytime and evening.. every hours the view have been changing the color and schene.... We all families are really really satisfied our stays there !!
O'Oma Plantation rental for Family reunion
We stayed at O'Oma Plantation for a family reunion - 9 adults and 6 children aged 5-17 years…the property was PERFECT for our family - incredible clean, easy to access from all parts of the island and MORE than enough space for all 16 of us…would definitely return in the future!
Beautiful House & Great Location
We chose this house because we were celebrating a family reunion. There were 10 of us in all.We loved the house, it was very comfortable. The location was perfect! not too far from Downtown Kona or airport or hiking areas. We were very pleased with most of the amenities. However one should be aware, there were no disclosures in the listings of there not being any air-conditioning. And their BBQ was not clean,virtually unusable. The Spa, worked, but only at certain times of the day & night.
Great For Big Groups
The house is a great group escape place. It looks just like all the photos. Ants were a problem if even the smallest crumb was left on the counter however that may be endemic to the area as the house was very clean. Comfortable beds. Location is very close to the airport and about 7 minutes from downtown. A car is required to stay here. Just be aware that the house is not AC ( not an issue when we were there) and the pool water may be cold. We had a great stay.
O'oma Plantation - A place to relax
We stayed at the O'oma plantation in celebration of my parensts 60th wedding anniversary. There were 10 adults and the place met our needs extremely well. Each couple had their own bedroom and bath. The Center of the house was perfect for the family to gather. The outside patio and view were perfect for watching the beautiful sunsets. I would highly recommend these accommodations for parties with multiple couples or multiple families
WHAT A WOUNDERFUL PLACE 10 + ROOMS ALL WITH BATHS!GREAT POOL &HOT TUB LOCATION GREAT CLEAN & NEAT WOULD GO BACK (SOON)

O'oma Plantation Rental
Overall experience was very good. Few issues as listed below, but overall happy. 1) dish washer was broken when we moved in. It was obvious to us that this was a known issue that should have been taken care of prior to our arrival. It was replaced on Wednesday (4 days into our stay). 2) Hot tub was an issue. We had asked that the hot tub be on 24/7. this was not the case, and when it was turned on 24/7 on Tuesday, it was done incorrectly, and we didn't have any heat for a full 24hrs. No other issues where noted, and the house was very nice.

Perfect for family adventure
This home was perfect for our family of 14 - ranging in ages from 6 months to 60+. Many people have commented on the pool not being heated, it certainly did not deter any of us from jumping in. We stayed a few days at a resort and I don't think they heat their pools either. The views are amazing and it is a beautiful home. Would certainly want to stay here again if we were visiting with a large group.

Awesome family stay at O'oma Plantation
Wow! What a great stay we had at O'oma plantation. We had a family reunion/vacation on the big island of Hawaii and stayed 8 nights in paradise,enjoying every minute of our stay. The house is perfect for families... with the large kitchen, pool, hot tub and with 5 out of the 7 bedrooms have sliding doors that open to the patio pool area you can have privacy and all be together at the same time. The view over the infinity pool was stunning - the pool, beaches, ocean, horizon and sunsets were perhaps the best we have ever had at any of our vacations in the last 25 years! The house is near great beaches, dinning and airport, but with all the privacy we needed. We traveled around the entire island; 1.Waipio Valley hiking 2. Waimea for dinner at Merrimans 3. Hilo for water falls and botanical garden and the best lunch at “What’s Shakin” 4. Visited the live glowing Kilauea volcano at dusk. 5. Cliff jumping from the United States most southern point Ka Lae. 6. Many beaches including black sand beaches. After every daily adventure we looked forward to the hot tub and pool. We all look forward to a return trip in the future!
We recently stayed at this house and could not have found a more perfect rental for the price. We were a group of 17 (9 Adults/8 kids) There was room for everyone and the house is so large that we had our own space. I will agree my biggest disappointment was that the pool was too cold and the hot tub had specific hours of which it could be used (electricity is very high on the island but you can purchase I believe through the agency an all day run rate). However the kids didn't mind at all but the adults hardly used it. Instead we sat on the deck for hours and stared at the amazing sunsets. It is very close to everything and Kona airport (don't worry you won't hear planes). The house sits far on a hill and it's only one of 3 in the Ooma Plantation that we could see. Your neighbors are very far so it's very private. The furnishings are high end and the beds, linens wonderful. I searched for for over 6 months for the right property at the right price and this place delivered. Additional notes: There is a high cleaning fee but for the size of the house it can be expected. The only upstairs room could use a bigger bed instead of the daybed, seems like it could be a master instead of an afterthought.
O'oma Plantation was great, just needed a few things added!
We had a wonderful stay, however the pool needs to be heated and renters should be able to us the AC, just charge more for use of the AC units if need be. The worst part was the street noise at night. The neighborhood is not fully developed and has no gate so car loads of people would park on the street and party. We had windows and doors open at night due to the heat so you could hear their music and talking, it was awful and it was almost every night.

An overall good place to stay, but...
The pool was too cold to use; it definitely should be heated. The chlorinator broke down and we couldn't use the hot tub or pool for 3 days. The television channels were very limited. There should be a better cable/HD connection. Otherwise, we really liked the quality of the home and the layout was particularly good for our family. The young children and their parents could be in a separate wing and gave the adults privacy and quiet. A great pool would have made a real difference in our stay because this location is not very close to town or beaches.
14 Happy Family Members
When we arrived we had no idea just how beautiful a place we would discover. It more than fulfilled our expectations and was a dream come true. We spent hours in the pool and hot tub enjoying the view and relaxed atmosphere. The home was in easy access to town the air port and routes to anywhere we desired to go. The landscaping was gorgeous and we really felt we were in paridise. It made it very hard to leave. The only issue we found with this marvelous house was that the bedroom upstairs could have used a queen or king sized bed instead of the day bed. The kitchen was wonderful for a family of 14 being able to prepare our meals without tripping over one another. It was well supplied with all the necessities that is normally expected in a kitchen, and more. We took great pleasure in watching the eyes of our children and grandchildren as they entered the house for the week. Their expression did not change even as we left to return home. Everyone is in agreement that we want to return sometime in the future. Thank you so much for all your considerate assistance in making our 50th anniversary dream come true.
Great House at Kona Big Island
Highly recommend this luxurious house! Our whole family of 10 absolutely loved our stay here! Our two kids didn't want to get out of the beautiful infinity pool. We'd love to stay here again if we come back to Kona!
Great family rental
Extraordinary family trip to the Big Island, so much to do. We ranged from grandparents, parents down to 6 year old and everyone LOVED it!
The most beautiful, magical home that you have to see to believe. The perfect spot to disconnect from the world and reconnect with yourself yet close enough to surrounding hot spots so everything you need is within reach. Highly recommended. Prince properties is just a phone call away no matter what you need. I even received a call just to check and see how I was doing. Everyone in my party absolutely adored this home and we hope to return very soon. GO! It's so worth it!

This house was perfect for our family! The grandchildren would have stayed there 24 hr/7 days and played in the pool. We will definitely stay there again if in Kona.

O'oma Plantation stay October 2011
Beautiful house, loved the design and amenities. Only issue we had was with the hot water in one wing of the house. We called the management company and were told that someone would be by to have a look at it. We were away from the house for most of that day so I'm not sure if anyone showed up but we continued to have issues. Must say a big Mahalo to the Management team for making a special trip to the house after we checked out to look for and return our passports which were forgotten in a bedside table.

No written review provided.
I am not sure where to start, but our entire group can not stop talking about our recent trip to the big island and this house was the main focus. We had 11 adults and 6 kids and the house was perfect. We loved that all the bedrooms had there own bath. 5 of the bedrooms had ocean views. It was nice that the house is on the hill because it was cooler up there (no a/c---but did not matter). On days we were gone it took a little while to cool down, but soon the breeze and fans made it comfortable. We can not stop talking about how comfortable the beds and pillows were. So much so that we wrote the make and models down of the matresses to buy for our own houses. None of us woke up with "broke back" the first night. Slept like babies. If we were at the house the kids were in the pool/spa all the time. Great backyard deck area with plenty of seating. New cushions for the 2 lounge chairs would be nice-too hard without cushions. The kitchen was great. We used it a lot. Only a few thing we could have used, but nothing important that we could not improvise...like a pizza cutter. With a house that big a seperate freezer for ice would be great, but we made it work. Just extra runs to the convenient store up the street. We all had an awesome time. The island was great also. Traveled the entire thing and enjoyed every inch of it. From black sand beaches to green sand beaches to zipline tours, helicopter tours, waterfalls, snorkeling, boogie boarding, restaurants, farmers markets, shopping in Kona...I could go on and on. Great trip...Thank you!!!
Great home for a large group
We enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous home in Kona. The house is beautiful. It is not near a beach or oceanfront. The closest beach is a 15 minute drive. You have to have a rental car because this house is not within walking distance to anything. The pool and hot tub was nice since getting to the beach was a bit of a chore.
O'Oma Plantation .We had a fantastic holiday at Kaila-Kona the best part of it being our stay at the plantation house.The house

Family Reunion 2011
The property was fantastic in every way - there were 10 adults and 5 children and lots of space for everyone without feeling crowded. The facility is first class, private, quiet and all you could ask for - making our Hawaii experience as good as it gets!!

This place was incredible
Brand new home with fantastic views of the Kona area. Gorgeous pool and brilliant sunsets. You could not have a better home away from home. Our family stayed here for the Ironman week and its a short drive into town and a close drive to the airport. The house is close enough to town to enjoy it but not so close that you cant relax in a very quiet tropical spot! Its not cheap but you get what you pay for.
