I was a little skeptical after reading some of the reviews on this beautiful property in regard to the noise issues. Due in part to myself being a very light sleeper i chose to bring earplugs. However after the third night or so, the harmonious symphony of wild life playing thru-out the night turned out to be very calming. Everything that I wanted this place to be and more. Easily enabling the soul to spiritually reconnect with ones inner self. Truly an "remote jungle oasis" home away from home feel. If you have the desire to be swept away with that secluded away from tourist feeling, but also close enough to local shops for basic necessities, give this property a chance.

The Jungle apt was cozy and comfy. Secluded and up a winding road, it is very private and only a short drive from Captain Cook and Kona. The home is not far from a handful of food options and not too far from beaches and Kona. Chantel was very sweet and accommodating when we had questions. We would definitely recommend staying here and enjoying the little oasis they have created.

My wife and I had a nice stay at Chantel and Sarah's place. They communicated very clearly upfront and while we were there. The place contains all necessary items and we got plenty of towels. Chantel and Sarah were always ready to help us with our questions. The only downsides were the mosquitos and the ride to the house. The mosquitos is something you have to live with in a more rural area in Hawaii. The 10-15 minute ride to the house from the main road is steep and narrow. It is personal, but we would rather be a little less rural. Especially if you go around the island a lot like we did. But others might like the quiet, scenic location.

Response from Chantel:
We are so happy that you & Jodie enjoyed your stay! We didn't get to see much of either of you but I'm happy I was able to help with sewing kit & the aromatherapy diffusers came in time for your stay! Thank you for living the one-bedroom so nice & putting all your linens in the basket! So nice of you! Yes. Mosquitos. Hawaii. What can one say about that? We'll leave some mosquito coils for the next round if you like. Yes. Again true. We do live up country... hence why we call our listings JUNGLE HIDEAWAY OF SOUTH KONA & BIG ISLAND JUNGLE ESCAPE. I will do my best to add that to our description that it is 7 min. up from the main highway. If you are out of suburbia or tourist resort places by the beaches on this island, most roads are steep & narrow as we LIVE ON A VOLCANO!!!! Choosing the "Real Big Island" or the "Man- Made-Hawaii at the beach" is always tricky. Just something to consider. ;0)

Chantal & Sarah, our Wonderful mermaid goddess women-hosts, were ultra accommodating, helpful, heartful and fun to stay with. The house and grounds are beautiful, comfortable and an adventure in themselves. We came as guests, we left as friends.

exactly as advertised. very nice area up a little hill, really quiet and safe, no need to lock your door. chantel and Sarah were great hosts, giving our kids a nice mermaid lesson and answering all of our many questions regarding swimming with the dolphins in the nearby bay (a must) or the volcano. wifi was broken but soon fixed. would stay there again.

HOLA & ALOHA! My name is Chantel & I am currently a Circus Talent Agent & Show Producer who has lived in Los Angeles for 21 years & now I live mostly in Kona, Hawaii where I run a cirque-us arts center & host retreats up in the jungle!!! I also teach aerial art, fire dancing, massage therapy & am a professional mermaid, especially while living on an island with lots of marine life.

I love hosting & showing you my incredible city of LA when I'm in town & when we have a room available & our gorgeous tropical jungle two-story house up in Captain Cook, South Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. Sarah & I offer many other add-ons like massage, yoga, mediation & tours in our South Kona home.

Whether in LA or Hawaii, I have lovely professional roommates & these happy homes are definitely something special that I have hosted many, many people & friends from all around the world in. I have definitely taken pride in my homes & have put a lot of love into the decor & comforting things (like couches, pillows, warm comfy beds, bonfire pits, swings, outdoor lights & cleanliness). In way of the animal kingdom, in LA we house one cat & eight chickens & in Kona we have two mainly outdoor kitties & a few chickens (that provide us with daily fresh eggs) in the coop area up top of the property! I know you will love both homes!
