Paradise location! We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at the Palm Bungalow. The owners were so accommodating and really nice. We loved the house and location. We woke up every morning from the birds chirping in the trees and enjoyed some of the fruits that grew in the garden.We had some great outings to the lovely beaches and the towns in the countryside. All in all a perfect winter vacation!

Sublime This lovely bungalow FAR exceeded my expectations. It is so very peaceful and private, secure, serene. The owners are as described in other reviews: so very welcoming and helpful but not at all intrusive. Felt very private. Outdoor shower was divine. We didn't use the indoor shower at all (though it's huge and beautifully tiled and lovely). The pool is divine, the yard is beautiful; it's so quiet. The property is fabulously located and very convenient to downtown Kailua Kona but completely out of the hustle and bustle. <br/>There is no kitchen, per se, but a coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave and an outdoor grill. We usually had take-out poke, didn't miss a stove at all. The small fridge kept fruit and beverages cold. Cooler available for extra storage for ice! Beach chairs, beach towels and umbrella available for use. There was one set of fins and mask/snorkel which we used (not for tiny feet). The king size bed is super comfy, very nice linens, big fat soft bath towels. There is not a lot of closet space and no dresser, so be aware if you tend to bring a ton of clothes, but this was not an issue for us at all. <br/>No TV in the bungalow, thank heavens! It would have spoiled the atmosphere. Good fast WiFi available. <br/>The Palm Bungalow is a hidden gem. <br/>I'm going on 17 years of traveling to Kona and have stayed in MANY properties around Kailua-Kona. The Palm Bungalow is beautifully maintained, well situated, SO PEACEFUL; it's an excellent value and is the perfect getaway for a couple. <br/><br/>We always enjoy a snorkel trip to Captain Cook Monument and a visit to The Place of Refuge (Pu'u O Honua O Honaunau); we had a great meal at Foster's Kitchen right on Ali'i Drive. <br/><br/>In years past, I have rented SUP paddleboards from HYPR Nalu right at the corner of Ali'i Drive and Palani. This year, took a surfing lesson with owner Ian Foo and instructor Jared, which included some REALLY USEFUL dry-land instruction and then actually catching waves down at K

Private Honeymoon Paradise We spent the first week of our honeymoon at The Palm Bungalow and we can't imagine a better place. We fell in love with the photos before we even arrived and we were not disappointed. We only ventured out a few times to go to local beaches and out to eat, because we most enjoyed lounging around at The Bungalow, sunning by the pool, and reading in the hammock. The kitchenette was well stocked and we fixed 2 meals a day at The Bungalow. We loved waking up in the morning to the sounds of the tropical birds and the breeze blowing through. We loved the close connection to the outdoors that we experienced staying here. And the mattress is very, very comfortable - kudos! I think Steve told my husband that it was fairly new. Our 2nd week was at Hilton Waikoloa - a very lovely, but different style of vacation with a big resort feel. The Bungalow can't be beat for intimate setting, connection to nature and comfort.

We really enjoyed out stay in Kona at the Palm Bungalow. The owners live in the main house and they were so friendly and helpful. They gave us our privacy but were always eager to give suggestions of things to do. She even cut fresh aloe from her yard when she found out my daughter had gotten sunburned the day before. Thank you so much for opening your home to us!

We loved The Palm Bungalow. First, its location is perfect. Its on the property of a home in a gated residential community. Its a six minute walk to the water and a five minute drive into town. The bungalow itself is very luxurious with an extremely comfortable king sized bed, a fabulous bathroom, and is equipped with anything a visitor would need. There is a bbq and access to a swimming pool and hot tub.<br/>The owners are very warm and helpful, sharing fruit from their trees and information about their island. We had a great two weeks there and would certainly book it again.

Gorgeous property, our best vacation yet! First class all the way, we never wanted to leave. Waking up to birds every morning, sitting on the lanai, drinking freshly brewed Kona coffee, admiring the amazing favorite thing was the outdoor lava rock shower! I miss that the most. We will definitely be back! The owners were fantastic hosts, we appreciated their aloha spirit!

I Love this place! It's a great little secret, a special find. I"m so lucky that I found it. I've stayed here two years in a row now and will definitely go back.

This place is quiet, romantic, peaceful, and perfect for those that want to be near the activities and town without having to be in the middle of it all, we saved big money by getting food and cooking/bbqing at the bungalow, the owners are super nice and laid back and awesome hosts, the salt water pool is very nice and the outdoor shower is perfect for washing up after a swim or a run, or for an outdoor shower on a moonlit night, I would definitely recommend to others.

We spent the first week of our honeymoon at The Palm Bungalow and we can't imagine a better place. We fell in love with the photos before we even arrived and we were not disappointed. We only ventured out a few times to go to local beaches and out to eat, because we most enjoyed lounging around at The Bungalow, sunning by the pool, and reading in the hammock. The kitchenette was well stocked and we fixed 2 meals a day at The Bungalow. We loved waking up in the morning to the sounds of the tropical birds and the breeze blowing through. We loved the close connection to the outdoors that we experienced staying here. And the mattress is very, very comfortable - kudos! I think Steve told my husband that it was fairly new. Our 2nd week was at Hilton Waikoloa - a very lovely, but different style of vacation with a big resort feel. The Bungalow can't be beat for intimate setting, connection to nature and comfort. We already long to return again! Thank you!

I was in Kona for the Ironman Triathalon World Championship. The bungalow was conveniently located to town and I was able to walk every day. I was tired when I got done with my days but looked forward to returning to the bungalow because it was so beautiful and peaceful there. The pool was refreshing and the hot tub welcoming to my sore muscles. I was able to do everything I needed to, including cook all my own meals. I highly recommend this hidden treasure!

My wife and I enjoyed the Palm Bungalow. Close to Kona, yet away from the hustle and bustle. In a gated community, in the back yard of a beautifully maintained residence and grounds. The bungalow is small, but well furnished and supplied with all the needs of an individual or couple. Awesome alternatve to a condo or resort. Makes you feel like you live and Kona (we wish we did!). 5 stars.

My wife and I wanted to find a quiet place for a belated honeymoon, and the Palm Bungalow exceeded all of our expectations. It was clean, well maintained, and absolutely beautiful. The owners, Steve and Lauralynn, live on the property and were attentive, gracious, and fun hosts who made us feel right at home. The neighbourhood is a quiet spot to the south of downtown Kailua. It's close enough to walk into town if you're up for a stroll, but a rental car is highly recommended for getting around in general. The area seemed very safe, and we never considered theft to be even the slightest concern. Overall this was one of the best, most relaxing vacations we have ever taken. If we return to the Big Island, we would come back to the Palm Bungalow most definitely.

Our eight days spent at Palm Bungalow were idyllic. Met at the gate by the property owners regardless of being delayed in arriving, we felt welcomed from the outset.<br/>The bungalow is an intimate setting for two people, beautifully located on a perfectly designed and maintained property. The pool and outdoor shower were welcome cool-downs after days of exploring the Island, and the lanai was very comfortable for peaceful relaxation, and for viewing the wide variety of birds, amazing vegetation and beautiful sunsets.<br/>The presence of the property owners was never intrusive, but also a valuable resource for input on local recommendations of sights, activities and restaurants. We appreciated every moment of our stay, and highly recommend the Palm Bungalow.

Off the beaten path - live as a local. Extremely well cared for property with every amenity provided. Hosts are on site with offer to help in any way, or to just leave you alone.
