We arrived after dark in the rain, but Susan was there waiting for us. After a greeting she lead us up the bumpy road to the Banana Bungalow and showed us around the cottage. There was a bowl full of fresh fruit and a big bag of their Kona coffee for us to use. Since we were exhausted we went...

I stayed in the Banana Bungalow for a week in April. I loved it. The bungalow is very spacious and has a very comfortable king size bed. The bungalow has everything you could possibly need and the higher elevation provides a pleasant cooler environment in the evenings. The property is very serene and beautifully maintained. The owners obviously have a... more

Additional Rate and Availability Information
The state of Hawaii taxes are 13.41% of the total of however many nights you are staying including the 100. exit cleaning charge.

To figure your weekly rent please take the amount as shown above under weekly rent, add in $100. for the Exit Cleaning charge, then take 13.41% of that total for the Hawaii State Taxes, and add that amount to the sub-total and you will have the total amount of your total stay.

For example, the JUNGLE COTTAGE one week rate (120. X 7 nights) is the 840.00 as shown above, plus 100. for exit cleaning = 940. X 13.41% for the Hawaii State Taxes which comes to 126.+ 940.. = the ONE WEEK TOTAL OF 1066.00. The deposit is half, 533. now, and then 30 days prior to your arrival the balance is the same, 533..

And exactly the same thing for the BANANA BUNGALOW; the one week rate (140. X 7) of 980.00 as shown above + 100. exit cleaning = 1080. X 13.41% Hawaii State Taxes which come to 145. + 1080. = so the ONE WEEK TOTAL OF 1205. The deposit is half, 602.50 upon reserv...

How to get there
Airport: KOA: 26.1 mi
If you arrive hungry, there are many restaurants to choose from in Kailua-Kona proper and also others along the main 'Mamalohoa' highway as you drive south to reach So. Kona. They stretch from the Kona Int'l Airport (KOA) into South Kona.

Further travel advice is really about how to differenciate between us and the literally thousands of other places to rent!.

There are places suited for every kind of person and/or couple in the world on this island! This is why we think it's our place is the best, not only on the “Kona” side but in the world! Let us paint a picture of a stay with BwanaBob's. You will immediately notice that we are the last property at the end of a private road and the quietness is wonderful. Then candy for your eyes as you start to see the soothing...
