Originally I was interested in Kailua-Kona, but now I'm looking around Kohala after reading about vog in K-K. I have found a nice place in Kohala Ranch VRBO 207907 (heated pool & hot tub, but no air-conditioning) & have asked about, but no reply yet, another in Kohala Estates VRBO 302330 (also heated pool, hot tub & one bedroom a/c). I'm concerned about the lack of a/c for the Ranch property, but maybe that wouldn't be an issue at 1800 feet & during late April/early May? It also sounds a bit isolated, far from grocery & restaurants, also dark steep roads to drive at night. We plan to cook ourselves, but also would like to go out to dinner a few times as well. We like the beach, but don't need to be super close. Thanks!
