We just stayed at the Kona Hula Girl in the Tiki room and it was a wonderful experience. Dean and Sherri are the ultimate hosts. Available for any questions or help, but you wouldn't know they were there otherwise. They are both so friendly that you feel like you've known them forever. The room was beautiful, nicely furnished and very comfortable even though its small. You could tell whoever planned it put in a lot of work because they thought of everything including storage in the walk in closet, plenty of windows for the spectacular view, all equipment and utensils in the kitchen, etc. The room is open air and was very pleasant during the day and cool at night. The ceiling fan kept the air moving as the day warmed up. I admit I was hesitant when I first found out there was no air conditioning, but it was no problem at all. This unit is on the second floor and was very quiet overall, even with it being open air. It is the furthest from the street which helps although there is not much traffic, especially at night. We barely heard any of the other guests and that was really only when they were outside coming and going. There is on site parking, laundry facilities, books for your enjoyment, beach umbrellas, chairs and coolers. They thought of everything! It is just a short walk to the center of town. Other than the airport, you really don't need a car unless you want to drive around the island and they have bus tours for that. You can walk to many great and fun restaurants right on the water and grocery stores are within walking distance. I just can't say enough about the place. I can't wait to go again and I won't even look at any other properties.
