“Great stay”
Reviewed November 18, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This place was fantastic. Simply and small, but had everything we needed. The access is around the building and isolated so it feels secluded.
One con is that the shops and breakfast spots are a touch far. However the white sands beach is about a 2 minute walk, and the shopping spot up the hill is about 15 minute walk.
We also stayed in town at a hotel for 2 days after being here, and were really disappointed there. Would easily recommend.

“Hidden Gem in Kailua-Kona”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

What a find this great holiday rental was! This fabulous studio apartment is located under the owner's house in a suburban street but it felt secluded. The view from the door onto the bbq area and surrounding garden made it feel like a secret hideaway.

Once we had booked this rental I received a confirmatory email with detailed and easy to follow directions from the airport . Upon our arrival we met Janet, one of the owners, who welcomed us and told us to call on her if we needed anything. We had no need - the place was fully stocked with anything that you could wish for and if there was an item you needed - like food - there is a shopping centre a short car drive away.

I highly recommend car hire in Hawaii - it makes sight seeing so much easier. After all, it is the Big Island and with a car you are not dependant on pricey tours. Just hop in the car and go wherever you fancy whenever you want.

We had a great holiday at this clean and tidy rental. We stayed in Kona last year at the Sheraton resort and we much preferred this hidden gem. If we ever return to Kona I definitely would choose to stay here again.

This place is absolutely beautiful, clean and cozy, in a quiet and friendly neighborhood. The owners were very nice and helpful. Additionally, there was lots of snorkeling gear what could be used and the next beach is in a five minutes walking distance. We would stay there again any time.

AAA+++ clean, quite, nice, everything, you need or want on vacation. Bicycles with a basket to go to town, framers markets, stores, beach. There is a GREAT snorkeling beach/park less than a mile away. Close to trolley line only $2 per person, we just popped a $5 in the basket, got a great breezy ride, the lay of the land and meet some wonderful people. We used the nice clean bbq, french press coffee maker, and enjoyed doing dishes outside. The bathroom was suprisingly well stocked. The owners live onsite , and were friendly and helpful, What a pleasure this entire vacation was. Stay here with no worries.

Really enjoyed the location and the extra amenities that were provided. However the hosts were going through some personal problems and was completely ignored the entire visit.
Would of highly recommended this place but sadly because of the fighting and loud disagreements could not recommend it as of our recent stay. There was an incident when one of the owners mistaken her place for ours because she was very intoxicated. There was banging of upper deck furniture and very loud disagreements with her partner. Too bad because it had it for perfect location and they had provided extras like boogie boards and snorkeling equipment and bikes but we did not use these.

As a business owner I was told this would happen. These are false accusations as I had to tell these two to be quiet after complaints from neighbors for loud talking and blaring TV after midnight on several nights. The late checkout without asking was the topper. Leaving the unit full of old food and dirty Clothing. She finally showed up at 4:30 pm. We had new guests coming in and this put many in a bad position. We really went out of our way to help these two by assisting with their lost luggage, wallet and phone on their first day. I'm sincerely sorry for future guests to have to read about this couples difficulties.

“Cute, comfortable, relaxing place!”

We enjoyed our stay in this nice, quiet neighborhood. The unit is a separate space of a home with it's own entrance, patio with gas grill and outdoor sink. Inside space is one large room and a separate bathroom pleasantly furnished. Unit includes small fridge, microwave, Nuwave burner for cooking, small kitchen appliances, dishes, etc. The very thoughtful owners have provided many extras like beach gear including snorkeling stuff, info on things to do, toiletries, and were helpful answering questions. The beach was a short walk and a great place to watch sunsets. Shops/restaurants in Kona need to be driven to (about 3 miles), but the owners also provide bikes which we rode into town. A great place to stay that's close enough to Kona without the crowds and traffic.
