We found the property to be clean, well furnished, very large, and quite well equipped, from the kitchen to the many beach toys, towels, chairs, etc. The pool and hot tub was very nice, and views to the ocean and sunset nice. It was also conveniently located. On the down side, the house is close enough to the main highway that we heard every ambulance, police car and fire truck on every 911 call made all day and night, along with a fair amount of traffic noise. Also, despite being high end (Viking) appliances in the kitchen, the oven was very temperamental, and the cheap turntable mount on the microwave was broken (looked like multiple glue jobs had failed), causing the metal carousel tray to bump into the interior wall and arc out. The slider from the kitchen to the lanai was also in need of major work. Forget "sliding" it unless you can lift its entire weight.

This beautiful home was perfect for my family to spend our week in Kona for our large family reunion! It is a wonderful home--beautifully decorated and furnished, with plenty of space for all. The pool and outdoor area is beautiful too and my entire family agreed that this is the best home we have ever stayed in. Only a few suggestions from my family members: It would be nice if the jacuzzi had warm water, rather than the same temperature as the pool, and it would be nice if we could control it to be able to use it when we would like to, rather than just the evening hours. Also, the downstairs bedroom closet has the sloped ceiling and one family member hit his head and would like to suggest that a warning strip be painted on the ceiling since it is all white and blends in. We look forward to staying in this absolutely perfect and beautiful home again for our next reunion!

Few Flaws Offset by Gorgeous View and Top Notch Responsiveness
David D. from Frederick, MD recommends this property
Stayed 10 days in Dec, 2013
Our "ohana" of seven stayed at Kawena 5 for 10 days in late December. The property has a lot of pluses: great location, only 5 minutes from central Kailua and an expansive view of Kailua Bay, top-of-the-line appliances, granite everywhere, tastefully furnished. The property is, however, a work-in-progress. The dishwasher had not been fully installed (not screwed in), landscaping is not finished, and the spa (not heated) did not have working jets until late in our stay. While each bedroom has air conditioning, the house has no central air, so the common areas (kitchen, dining, gaming) tend to get very warm and stuffy. We had problems with clogged condensate lines in three of the bedrooms, where water would drip onto furniture below the AC units, but the maintenance was prompt and the issue was resolved the following day.

Overall I would say we had a very good experience in this house. It was nice to have a king bed and ensuite for each couple. It seemed centrally located.

Great - but no internet

I stayed at Kewena5 last week and had a great experience. My only complaint is the wifi was not usable. I complained four different times without success of the internet being fixed. We rented this house as a company and had to inconvenience ourselves by fitting in time to stop at a coffee shop for wifi.
Other than no internet, the place was beautiful and clean. We also felt very safe the entire stay.
We apologize for the internet not working during your stay. We know that internet access is important to our guests and this home has high speed internet provided. We understood the problem has been solved with the reboot of the router and modem. As you know, KCV responded immediately to your other concern with an evening visit. We spend hours resetting internet access for our guests, as some guests reset passwords and block off access for the next guest. Normally, rebooting the router, modem and the device you are using solves the issue. Again we apologize.
