Do not stay here! Health and safety hazard. Had to wait 4 days for dresser in room. Coffee pot had terrible mineral stains and heating element had 2-3 Inch hole. Requested another. Deck was dirty. Microwave was dirty. Only provided two towels...no hand towel nor wash clothes. Had to request hand towels and two white ones were stained. No electric plug in bathroom and was not legal grounded plug if it did work. Deck electrical plug was overloaded with about 8 items plugged in. When oven toaster was in use and then microwave turned on, circuit would break and shutdown microwave. An extension cord lead from upper deck electrical over deck and down to unknown area. No table and chairs for eating for 3days and when requested then on deck. Dishes and silverware were dirty and had to wash with limited supplies. No cable nor local tv connection. So no tv news or weather. No sound on tv either. Grill under deck in a cluttered Junky area. Breakfast was a huge misnomer. Papayas were placed on microwave table some mornings. That was it.. Area was quiet and lots of trees

Awesome place to stay with all that you need! John is an excellent host
This was a first time for my wife and I booking a place like this to stay. Normally we always stayed in known hotels and resorts (spending usually hundreds a night for just a place to shower and sleep). We were a little nervous at first but it turned out to be one of our best travel experiences. If your looking for that local feel and hospitality than this is the place. If you want the ritzy feel that costs a small fortune go stay at one of those chain hotels. John was an awesome host and made us feel right at home. The view was great and the neighborhood quiet. Nothing like waking up and sitting out on the deck with our ocean view. John gave us the scoop on local places to eat and have fun that also saved us a ton and let us do more. We got a little taste of true hawaiin culture and food with little dishes John made us right from food growing wild in the yard. We will definitely be heading back in a few months and will be hitting up John again for a comfy place to crash. Mahalo for the great experience.

What a refreshing experience from the typical hotel!
As a frequent traveler to the island, I am constantly stuck in tiny hotel rooms, hostels, and friends couches. John's place is a beautiful house located up on the hillside above Kona. Its close to some really cool attractions like a chocolate farm, and my favorite coffee plantations like green well farms and Hula Daddy. John's rooms are spacious and literally feel like home. A major feature that I really enjoyed about this place is the ability to cook a full scale breakfast on the outdoor stove. On the island, you can expect to pay $15 for a simple plate of bacon and eggs. Being able to reduce my food costs down to a minimum by cooking at the house proved to be an excellent way of saving some hard earned cash in Hawaii.
Overall, the room was spacious and clean and John is an amazing host who is genuinely dedicated to making sure that you are comfortable and enjoy your stay.
Erholung abseits vom Trubel
Als wir anreisten hätten wir nicht gedacht, einen solch wunderbaren Ort vorzufinden. Nur wenige Querstraßen abseits vom Highway fanden wir Ruhe und wunderbare Natur. Das Quartier ist sehr günstig gelegen, wenn man abends essen gehen möchte oder einkaufen will.John ist ein hervorragebder Gastgeber. er gab uns viele Tipps, die wir gern befolgten. Wir können diese Unterkunft gern weiterempfehlen.
