    This rental has a lot of steps in and outside which was hard for person with crutch and senior. Also the pool did not have hand railing. Otherwise the house is located in a great location, views from all areas of the house and quiet.

    Kerry M from San Marcos, CA recommends this vacation rental

    WOW!!! WERE ALL OUR FIRST WORDS! Excellent location,very private,clean home,beautiful grounds,perfect for our family ages 18mo to 63. Out of 15 homes I showed to the family, this is the one they picked and they were not disappointed! House supplied like your own home. AC only in bedrooms but only ran at nite to sleep as it was humid all week. Loft can get hot during the day so leave slider open all day so it's cooled down before turning on AC at nite. Opened all doors & ran ceiling fans when home. Ohana was great too, fully supplied and AC & laundry. View and Pool: AMAZING!!!When home,barely in the house,most of time by pool(perfect temp day & nite),Jacuzzi was huge & great for little ones. House was better than pictures online as it doesn't show how spacious it was for our 4 families & how gorgeous it was at nite with the mini lights and lights shining out on the waves!!. Never used the TV area off the loft Bonus room, although very cool. It did have a beer pong table! Kids watched cartoons in Bonus area. Each family cooked one night & we ate out 2 nites. Costco close to airport,market close by. One family member got ear infection so we used Plush Care online video to talk to a doctor & got a prescription. But there are 3 Urgent Care centers near by house. Lots of beach towels,toys,chairs,pool floats,boogie boards. Loved Tex Drive In for Malasadas,Rain Forest Zoo even though it rained,Carl Smith Park,Akaka Falls,Kilauea Vol. & Lava Tubes,Blk Sand Beach,Place of Refuge,Kahalu'u Beach for snorkeling(can rent anything onsite),Keiki Ponds!(Fav),Greenwell Farms,Humpys,Huggos & Scandanavian Ice Cream in Kona. All this and we were only there a week! Nick at Boundless was awesome to work with,so helpful! Boundless made the trip seamless!! Only thing I'd change is the white carpet! No complaints from anyone in the family! Far better than any resort!!! Wish I could keep this a secret! The week went by so fast, but will return in a heartbeat!!! Mahalo!

    Lisa Renee H recommends this vacation rental

    From the day we booked to the day we left the Helemano exceeded our expectations.

    The house is well stocked with several goodies in the kitchen and beach and bath towels. And the location - WOW! It was a quick drive down the same road to the main drag with several cute shops and multiple farmer's markets and beaches, but it was far enough away that it was peaceful and quite.

    The house is well furnished and beautifully decorated. The hot tub warmed up quickly, and waking up to the sound of the waves may have been the very best part!

    Be aware, though, that air conditioning is NOT included in the rental cost. We visited in July with 85 degree temps during the day and around 75 at night. The house was bearable, but barely. We kept all the doors open and the ceiling and portable fans on, but we still were a bit hot in the home.

    We were also without cable for about five days, but the management company was quick to respond and very professional and courteous.

    The internet was spotty, unfortunately. We were able to connect, but the signal was weak, so I ended up using my own hotspot.

    That being said, I would HIGHLY recommend this management company and this property. If fact, if we go back to the Big Island, we will be sure to rent from Boundless Hawaii!

Please let us know when you return so that we may thank you with a 10% discount on your visit. Mahalo nui loa.

    Mark P from San Francisco, CA recommends this vacation rental

    we stayed at this stunning vacation home in mid June. it was even better than it looked in the photos, and it looks great in the photos. the Boundless Hawaii property management group was super responsive for the couple of questions we had and everything worked great, including the pool, hot tub and AC. the furnishings and kitchen equipment were high quality - something you usually don't get in a vacation rental. it was probably the nicest vacation rental we have ever stayed in across many house rental stays in hawaii and lake tahoe over the years. highly recommended.

    Our family group had marvelous discussions and fun meals and soaks
    together, while looking out at magnificent seascapes, sunsets, sunrises,
    paddlers, rowers, boats, swimmers, dolphins, whales, and tide pools.
    The setting could not have been better and seemed very luxurious to
    us. We all began to swim together like a lovely school of the tropical fish that we looked at while snorkeling down the road.

    Emma F from Port Lincoln, South Australia recommends this vacation rental

    If you want to rent an amazing house right on the ocean front & each night have the waves crashing metres from your lounge room - this is the place for you.
    Every thing has been thought of in this beautiful property.
    A full kitchen, great BBQ area, wonderful pool & spa.
    We really did not want to leave this luxurious property.
    The lounge area does get a little warm in the afternoon - but that is Hawaii & just jump in the pool to cool off.
    Stunning sunsets made it just perfect.
    I hope we return to Hawaii just so I can stay at Helemano again.
    Thank you very much

    Ben C from Gilroy, Ca recommends this vacation rental

    This was the best vacation experience we ever had . there were 10 of us including 3 kids . The house was so roomy and well laid out that we all had our own private spaces to relax in .
    The beautiful house , STUNNING oceanfront views , the sound of the waves just a few feet away , the trade winds blowing gently thru the house and the property , our own private pool AND hot tub and patio , gated entry with parking for 4 cars in the driveway , plus an outdoor man cave type area .
    THIS PROPERTY IS FAR MORE IMPRESSIVE IN PERSON THAN IN THE PICTURES OR THE VIRTUAL TOUR .
    It is very clean , well maintained , well stocked with everything we needed including pool and beach stuff for the kids .
    The beach parks are a short walk away . No need to load up the car and try to find a parking spot .
    And downtown is just a few minutes away .
    Boundless Hawaii (the property manager) was great . Friendly , professional , and very efficient . Now I see why they are chosen to manage so many of the better and best rentals on the island .
    WE LOVED THIS HOUSE !!! ITS WORTH THE PRICE !!!
    THE MEMORIES WILL LAST A LIFETIME ....

    Rachel S from Santa Fe Springs, CA recommends this vacation rental

    I have always rented a house in Maui but never in Kona; this was going to be our first year of inquiring about renting a house due to how many family members were joining. It apparently worked out great for us the first house we chose had to cancel our reservation (5 months after we made the reservation and 3 months before our trip). Panicking, we searched for another house and luckily came across your offer of Helemano. This house was WONDERFUL and my entire family had a wonderful time! We definitely would love to stay again the next time we go to Kona. Thanks again!

    a guest from Bloomington, IL recommends this vacation rental

    The view from the patio is absolutely lovely with crashing waves and wonderful sunsets. The house is designed for the master bedroom which was the only comfortable bedroom in the house. There is a small bedroom off the entrance which had A/C once we obtained the controls. There is an upstairs bedroom with no A/C and it was very hot even with the doors wide open and fans on and there is no bathroom upstairs. There is a den area with a pull out sleeper sofa, but there were numerous dead lizards and centipedes under it so we elected not to use it. The guest house is quite nice but very noisy from street traffic and you have to use A/C to sleep at night. No one told us that A/C doesn't come with the rental. You have to pay extra to get the remote controls for the A/C units. They were delivered but the A/C in guesthouse didn't work. Two nights with highway noise and lack of sleep made me a little cranky. The service technician did arrive the next day to fix it and I actually slept well with the windows shutting out the highway noise and the A/C on with the fans. The kitchen was well supplied and the outside grille worked nicely. I personally would like to be able to watch TV in the evenings and see the ocean but the layout of the house doesn't make that possible. We put a beach towel down on the floor to cover up the white carpet in the dining area to keep it from getting dirty. Not sure what they were thinking with upholstered dining room chairs. Coming in from the sun with sunscreen on and then sitting on the chairs didn't seem right, so we covered them with a towel also. The pool water was very cool and the hot tub was comfortable but only one jet worked. We had a lot of trouble with the security system which kept going off at numerous times each day. After working with the security company we were given instructions to reset it. In all fairness we did receive a $400 refund for our troubles.
