Beautiful house in a terrific location - gated community with a little children's beach close by (but not so close to be disruptive). Unlike some other houses in this community, this home's lanai is high enough that the walkway going past the back of the house along the water front does not compromise privacy. The lava rocks along the water provide endless opportunities for looking at tidal pools and watching the tropical fish dart about. The home's furnishings are all of excellent quality, the kitchen is very well equipped, and the little pool in the back is tastefully done and private. We dined outside every day (of course!) and used the grill. We also walked into the town of Kailua Kona every day -- about a ten minute walk. The only complaint we had was the construction next door. It was frustratingly noisy. I recommend checking ahead of time to see whether it has finished up.
