    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...

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...
