Perfect for what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay that is honestly advertised - for what we desired for our vacation (just the two of us) - it worked perfectly. We fully stocked the kitchen the first day which was a great option to have for how our days flowed, we walked down to the ocean and the closest shopping area, and enjoyed the location. The use of the beach gear really helped us enjoy the stay and not have to worry about renting or finding shade/coolers/chairs/etc. If you were stocking up your own beach gear closet, you would probably have the exact same things available and just really made the beach days enjoyable. The amount of fans allowed us stay comfortable at night, and the house was quiet and private with a great little covered porch for enjoying breakfast on. All beds are subjective, but to be honest we expected worse, and were pleasantly surprised at the comfort.

All in all, if we were going back to Kona this would be my first choice of places to stay. Thank you David for allowing us to stay for our vacation.

Very convenient and lots of extras

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The property was close to so many things in Kona and had just what we needed. The snorkeling equipment, towels, ice chests and c hairs were used and really appreciated. We also loved using the outside deck to eat. The washer and clothes line were a really nice plus after traveling for 2 weeks. Thanks for providing all of this David. The owner even went out of his way and sent us a charger we left. So nice and appreciated. Thank you,
