Property description

2008 Edition of Lonely Planet's 'Hawai'i The Big Island' by Luci Yamamoto & Connor Gorry, on page 68, 'OUR PICK'
'Ssh, this immaculate 800 sq ft one bedroom deal is a downright steal for longer stays (four night minimum). Located in an upland residential neighborhood, the unit features many convenient touches: full kitchen, filtered water, patio tables and use of washer-dryer. Wheelchair accessible; $50 cleaning fee.'

Located at the 800-foot elevation overlooking Kailua Bay, meaning cooler temperatures during afternoons and evenings. 5 minutes from the beach and downtown Kailua-Kona.

We have only one unit to rent.

800 sq. ft. of private living space. You don't have to share kitchen, bbq or patio.

Quiet neighborhood full of songbirds, turkeys and pheasants

Imagine sipping fresh Kona coffee in a tropical garden laden with plumeria trees, palm trees, anthuriums and bird of paradise.

Coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards, noodles, beach towels for your use

Unit set up with extra towels and linens. Washer and dryer in carport

Wireless internet, dvd, vcr, cd player

Parking within 20 ft. of front door.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We have vacationed in Hawaii since 1971 and finally moved here from San Francisco in 2003. We love the quiet neighborhood and tropical growth around us. We like to travel ourselves and we have set up the unit to resemble what we would like to have in a vacation rental.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Sunset:
We vacationed on the Big Island for many years and we wanted to spread the Aloha to others. The unit is close to everything in town but not in the thick of traffic. It is also nice to go to the beach, but after the beach it is great to get out of the heat. At the 800 ft elevation the climate is cooler. The area is also better for tropical growth and the area is surrounded by large trees and flora.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The unit is set up like a home. When we went vacationing, we noted the items that we thought were very important to have. Many times, we would arrive late to our unit and we did not want to stop at a store and buy a boat load of items. So we do have basics kept in the unit.
