My family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) will be spending two weeks in Hawaii this August. We'll be on the Big Island for 6 nights in the middle of our itinerary and are trying to decide where to stay. We want to be away from the crowds (e.g. Kailua-Kona area) and will also be touring / day tripping a lot. Our budget is $200 or less per night. I've found two 2 properties on VRBO that both have most of the features / qualities we're looking for, but would welcome thoughts, pro or con, from experienced residents or visitors. One is near Ocean View:
and the other is pretty much the opposite part of the island:
Any feedback would be welcome!
PS - you may notice, but I'm brand new as a poster here on TA, though I've benefited from being a reader-only for years. :)
