We had the pleasure of staying in the Plumeria studio for 2 weeks. Our most important "make or break" in a vacation rental are cleanliness and comfy bed. This place had them both. We usually opt for a place with a king sized ned, but i would take this comfy queen over some of the inferior kings i have had. The large covered lanai was great. No problem with parking. The wifi was problem free. Easy access to utility room with washer and dryer for longer stays so you can pack fewer things! ($4.50 per load, soap included) i must admit, i haven't heard roosters on my previos stays in Kona, but they seem to be everywhere on the island now!
Nanette keeps the property in good repair and spotless inside and out. You will feel safe and looked after.

“An awesome place to stay on the Big Island”

My wife and I just returned from a seven night stay at Bear's Place guest house. We stayed in the Orchid suite and it was one of the best rentals we have ever stayed in in our 12+ trips to Hawaii. The rental is in a quiet neighborhood. The Sunset and views from the Lanai are amazing. The unit is extremely clean and well furnished. The unit even came with a travel cooler, beach towels, Beach Umbrella, and boogie boards for body surfing. Nanette was a gracious host. Are flight arrived late at night and she had juice and muffins in the fridge for us for breakfast. The unit is centrally located 15 minutes from Kona, 40 minutes from Hapuna Beach, and roughly 3 hours from Volcano's national park. Nanette also helped give us advice as to local attractions on the island. Again, an amazing place to stay on the Big Island.

We (Me+Wife+ 3 kids) spent 8 days, in this beautiful, well facilitated and well kept amazing place. the location is great, close to the air-port, to the down town and to the amazing beaches. everything you need is there, which really makes the stay perfect. from chairs & boogies to the beach, through tons of fruit you can eat fresh from the trees :) to a washing machine , coffee maker, WiFi...the owner hospitality and availability are great and we really got what ever we needed or wanted, including tips for really cool locations. we really enjoyed our stay and definitely would love to come again. Ofer & family.

“Wonderful and Enchanting”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We were married while there, we found Nannette and Anne very hospitable and helpful. The rooms were exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. The decks overlooking the ocean were large and tastefully furnish. It was nice to come back after a day looking at sea turtles or snorkeling and feel at home and comfy with the spectacular views from our deck. We cant wait to return, not just to Hawaii but at Bears place our new Home Away From Home!

I simply don't know where to start. Bears' Place Guest House is an absolute gem of a find. This is hands down the cleanest place you will find anywhere. When you arrive, the owners normally greet you if it's not a late arrival and you will find fresh fruit in the refrigerator with muffins and beagles too. There is even a few canned fruit drinks in the fridge for you to try that is made locally. There is also everything you will need here; ice chest, beach chairs & towels, coffee & filters and the list goes on. The top floor has an incredible view that you can see all the way to the ocean! You are at 1600 feet above sea level here so no need for air conditioner. No need to look anywhere else, This is the place to stay!

We were so glad to have chosen to stay at Bear's Place! My husband and I were so at home and we so appreciated all of the amenities that made our stay full of comfort and ease. Anne and Nanette have really put their hearts into this beautiful guest house and it shows, I have deep respect for the work they do in maintaining this lovely place, thank you! Also, although we didn't have the kitchen suite, we found that we didn't need it - we were able to cook with the rice cooker, the induction cooker and the hot pot. I also can't forget to mention how helpful Anne was in giving us tips about the area and encouraging us to try the boogie boards! I believe that their hospitality impacted my vacation and my future quest to move to the area!
