Jae is simply an incredible host. The property is small and it runs like a well oiled machine. If you think of something you need, odds are Jae has already thought of it, and it's already there for you. Little beach across the street, typical of Kona beaches, with an adjacent snorkeling cove. Nice pool out front--small, but bigger than I thought it would be for a 3-unit property--with a nice little grounds, and comfortable chairs to watch the runners and bikers on the road, and the ocean right across the street, and the birds and mongeese that frequent the property. We liked the location, a few miles south of the busyness of downtown one way and virtually nothing the other. Very nice interior in the Honeymoon Suite--modern, updated, comfortable; can't speak to the other units, as we never got a chance to take a peek. We loved the convenience of the outdoor kitchen. Can't speak highly enough of Jae, and how accommodating she was, and how all her efforts were geared toward making the trip exciting, easy, and memorable. Outstanding.
