                          A great home-base for exploring the Big Island of Hawaii. Centrally located 7 miles north of downtown Kailua Kona, at a comfortable elevation in a quiet neighborhood, we are 10-15 minutes from the airport and the beautiful beaches along the Kona-Kohala Coast. We are half a mile ifrom the picturesque Makalei Hawaii Golf Course. Waimea is a half hour drive, and Hilo and Volcanoes National Park make a great day trip.

                          Other Activities: Whalewatching, manta ray diving, zip lining, swimming with dolphins, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and boogieboarding.

                           

                          Owner info

                          About the owner: We have enjoyed exploring the Big Island for over 25 years and love to share our island home with guests from around the world. As fellow travelers, we know how to make guests feel at home and welcome. We designed and built Bears' Place ourselves specifically as a Guest House in 2007. Having been in the Hawaii vacation accommodation business since the 1980s, we knew what features the home needed to provide guests with a great vacation experience. Our third generation of family members are now guest house hosts in training.

                          Why the Owner Chose Kailua-Kona:
                          We chose the location, because we felt it was the best place to live on the island - close to our favorite beaches, handy to shopping and dining, close to a gorgeous golf course and a short drive to the airport. The hillside location makes for lovely ocean views of the Kona Coast, and the elevation of 1600 feet gives us the perfect year round temperature, so heating and cooling aren't necessary.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
                          One of the nice things about the four spacious studios that comprise the guest house is that they also work great for family reunions and wedding parties - guests who want to have the whole home to themselves. Guests can cook meals in the full kitchen and have fun together, yet they can also choose to enjoy the privacy of their own space, complete with kitchenette for that early morning cup of coffee or late night snack.
