Why Keri Campbell chose Kailua-Kona
Our Plumeria Hale is one block from the ocean in a local neighborhood where ohana and friends have been for many years. The house is a cute and cozy Hawaiian plantation style and invites relaxation! Bright and cheerful interiors for a happy feel.

THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL WANT TO STAY IN KONA
We really enjoyed our stay at Keri's property. She was very easy to work with and very accommodating and thoughful. We were in Hawaii to celebrate our grandson's graduation from high school. The first thing we found in the house when we got there were two leis and a mylar balloon with congratulations for our grandson. That made us feel welcome immediately. We were thankful for the snorkeling gear, the beach chairs, mat, beach towels and the umbrella. It was a very delightful place to relax and enjoy the cool ocean breezes. The kitchen was very well equipped and so were the bathrooms. There was very easy access to Highway 11 and Ali'i. Keri was very prompt in returning our rental deposit and we really appreciated that. We very highly recommend this property.
Our second stay in this charming local home
We stayed at this house during our wedding/honeymoon 2 years ago. When we were planning our trip back to Big Island, I asked my husband where he wanted to stay, and he said "that house was perfect for us, why stay anywhere else?". He was right of course.
It's a perfect location, just minutes from "downtown" Kailua-Kona. Very comfortable, well ventilated, charmingly decorated, and all the amenities...Including 2 bathrooms and a washer/dryer!
Owner is super to deal with, and you guessed it - we will totally be back!
A place that feels like home!
This place was perfect. My three friends and I really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was very helpful when you asked for assistance. She provides more than the basics or more than what typical hotels would provide. I felt as though I was at home. I also really enjoyed how comfortable the beds were! She makes the cottage so comfortable, you are more than tempted to stay in for a day and relax. She will provide tips on activities if requested and is very generous with her fridge and pantry items. Accounting for the fact that this was our first experience in Kona, we were all expecting to find flat, sandy Beaches in close proximity to the cottage however that was not the case, beaches in Kona are generally rocky. So if you want to find yourself in a sandy beach to sun bathe or lounge around, you will have to drive there (about 15-20min drive) as walking on a pretty hot day might not be so pleasant. Overall, the cottage is thoroughly clean and well stocked. We will definitely stay in this place next time we're in Kona!
Great little cottage!
Great place to stay. The house was clean, comfortable, and stocked with plenty of kitchen supplies, bath towels, and beach equipment. It's a very short walk to some nice public beaches. There's no AC, but plenty of ceiling fans to keep the place comfortable. The only negative was that the neighbors were close by and a little bit loud at times.
Hale Sweet Hale ... Kona cottage, great location, clean & super-comfy ...
This little cottage is super-clean and super-comfy; great location, loved the sea turtles nearby, great public parks nearby, owner has thought of every last detail to make sure your stay is enjoyable.
We love this little house
My 13-year-old granddaughter and I stayed in this wonderful little house for almost two weeks at the end of April, and we loved it. The house was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, and well stocked with kitchen and beach supplies. It looks better in reality than the pictures on VRBO indicate. We each had our own bedroom and our own full bathroom. The house is situated in a regular Hawaiian neighborhood approximately two blocks from the ocean. It is close to stores and beaches, and Kona is delightful. Like most Hawaiian homes, there is no a/c, but with huge screen windows and ceiling fans in every room, it was lovely and cool. Of course, that means it is not sound proof, but we did not mind. We really enjoyed life in the neighborhood. Two other people live on the property. We saw one of them only twice and never saw the second. We enjoyed the yard with the giant mango tree and had breakfast on the lanai daily. We felt at home as soon as we arrived. If I have any suggestion, it would be to get a comfortable chair. The low sectional couch is not comfortable for older people.
Thank you Keri for sharing your home with us. I much preferred it to staying in a condo or resort.
House is one block from ocean access. Sandy public beach (magic sands) is 1 .5 miles south. Public transportation one block. Busy town approximately 2.5 miles. Schools and church in the neighborhood.
