Our stay was great
This place was great for 2 people nice deck area, peaceful neighborhood, close to a couple of beaches and just up the hill was a fun coffee plantation..was a nice drive to downtown Kona up and around pretty drive, and not on highway easy drive to any where you are going woud stay here again.. loved it..thanks Jim & Allison
Nice place to stay outfitted with nearly everything you need
The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to anticipate everything a guest might need for a pleasant stay. Everything is new, or near new, and of good quality. The only item we missed was a blender (one morning we wanted to make smoothies) otherwise it was outfitted perfectly.
It's ideal for one or two and maybe a small child. Any more and the place would be too crowded.
What keeps this from being a five-star review was the lack of any kind of walkable amenity. A car is an absolute necessity. Also, beyond basic cable (the four networks, PBS, and a weird independent station), there's no entertainment. We brought our Roku streaming box so we were able to get caught up on binge watching and could stream Pandora for music (the Hawaiia'an Channel really helped the mood). Thankfully there's lightening fast internet so you might as well take advantage of it.
Would we stay here again? Probably not. It's just too far from anything but it could be perfect for you if you know this beforehand.
Great Suite and Fabulous Location
We spent a week at Jim & Allison's one bedroom apartment. It was quite new, open and airy. We really liked the location - very close to the airport - just up the hill and therefore we didn't have to deal with the traffic getting in and out of Kona. (there's a lot of road construction on the main highway). It was therefore closer to get to the fabulous beaches or the north kohala coast, waipi'o and pololu valleys and mauna kea. We took the inland highways to get to 2 step and keauhou bay. Jim and Allison are very quick to respond to any questions or needs. The only caution would be to anyone who has knee issues as this is accessible by a flight of stairs, being above their garage. We will definitely try and rent this unit again if/when we return. Mahalo Jim & Allison!
We had a bit of a rough start as there was no house number or any other indication that we were in the right place. I recognized the lanai and Jim was working in the front of the house and noticed a couple driving by looking lost and confused and waved us in. We had a couple of issues that were handled quickly and in a friendly manner. It was a pleasure to work with all newish things. We tried to be home as often as possible to watch the sunsets. On New Years eve Jim suggested we keep the windows and doors shut tightly to keep the fumes from fireworks outside. We did. But to our pleasure the neighborhood lit up with fireworks from sunset to just after midnight. The show was amazing and we are glad we picked this location to see the new year arrive. Thanks for a lovely stay
