Big Island Retreat is consistently rated as one of Hawaii’s top places to stay by our guests!

“Traveled with family”

Had the master suite on the top floor for a week and it was AMAZING especially for the price and location! Snorkeled at the beach across the street with sea turtles and every fish from “Finding Nemo” as my son puts it! Our first time to the “Big Island” and we plan to return and stay here again!

“...just 5 minute stroll from a state beach”

Place is very laid back and just 5 minute stroll from a state beach with masses of fish and sea turtles. Perfect for a relaxed vacation in Keauhou Bay section of Kona. A car is not strictly necessary as you can walk 20 minutes to a shopping center with grocery and drug stores plus a selection of decent restaurants. There's a shuttle bus that runs every couple of hours all the way to downtown Kailua.

“The Hawaiian feel was very present!”

So charming! Loved that it was tucked away. The Hawaiian feel was very present! Beds were so comfy, and the open air room was peaceful, and relaxing! Gave me such a wonderful first impression of Hawaii!

"This place was amazing!"

We had such a pleasant stay here. The retreat was a sight for sore eyes after spending the previous 2 nights in a tent. We loved the tranquility of the space. We camped for a few nights while on the island to get away from people, but we found just as much seclusion and serenity at the retreat. We really enjoyed borrowing all the available beach gear, as we packed extremely light. When we come back to the Island, we will definitely stay here again.

"Great location "

Great location. Loved the room and the balcony. Handy little kitchen in the room. Getting to loan snorkeling gear boogie boards and Sunscreen and bug repellent was fantastic.

"Would stay here again in a minute"

We were at the beachfront for a long time and being hidden in the trees, still just a 3 minute walk to the beach was great. They have a great Gazebo with a cooking gas stove as well as a really nice Weber bbq. We had Surf and turf, cooked ourselves on the BBQ. that was refreshing. There are surfboards, waveboards, snorkel gear, coolers that you can just borrow and walk to the beach. Would stay here again in a minute.

“Wonderful in many ways”

This was the perfect location for our visit to Kona. Centrally located, clean, well equipped. We'll definitely be back. They had coolers, snorkels, beach chairs (and more) available to borrow for our adventures.
