“Islandgirl”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2015

The pictures do not do this rental justice. We walked in and were in awe. Speechless. It is beautiful inside. Extremely spacious. The landscaping is luscious and gorgeous. Very private. An added plus is the private pool which we used at least two to three times a day. Temperature of the pool was perfect. I am definitely renting this jewel again in the future.

Owner's reply: Mahalo ! We have worked very hard to make the Lighthouse a special, yet affordable, vacation experience for our guests. Wendy

“Awesome”

We enjoyed every moment of our three weeks trip to this great "home" on this beautiful island! Didn't want to leave - hope to come back. The Wendt Family, a Group of 7 "old" and young adults from Germany.

“Oasis By The Sea”

This property is great. Nice big kitchen, open planned living room and 4 bedrooms. The house is situated close to town -and a quick 5 min walk to White Sands Beach. The house has everything you need - snorkelling equipment, boggie boards, pool toys ect. Wendy was a pleasure to deal with and I would have no hesitations recommending this property to friends and family. We really enjoyed out stay, thanks for making our holiday that little bit more special.

Owner's reply: Always a pleasure hosting such appreciative guests! Mahalo, Wendy

“A Perfect Location”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2010

This was a beautiful place to stay and the location was perfect! We spent a good amount of time on the lanai watching the whales and the ocean. I cannot complain about anything and I would highly recommend this house to any big island vacationer. We loved it!

“A Perfect Sanctuary”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2009

We recently ended our stay at the Kona Lighthouse and the home was a perfect setting to kick back and relax. The location was convenient to shopping yet felt private. The pool was refreshing and we spent a lot of time on the lanai off the living area. The kitchen was well-equipped for cooking up delicious meals to enjoy on the lanai. We appreciated the generous supply of towels and other amenities to make us feel we were almost at home! All in all, a perfect getaway!
