Close to town and there is a small market directly across the street. Private, gated subdivision kept beach area private and very uncrowded
This is a really well presented house on Alii drive in Kona. Location is good, with bikes available to ride the 2.5 m to Kona, or a shuttle bus outside if you don’t want to drive into the town.
We didn’t eat out, as we don’t know the secret to getting a good local meal in Kona. However, there are loads of restaurants not too far away.
There is a really good selection of local produce at the KTA supermarkets, (Hawaiian owned), really fresh seafood, we all loved preparing it in the kitchen, a really nice communal space.
Great living space, a lot of room to spread out, the ocean is out the back gate, lovely heated pool; everything you would want in a holiday rental. Beds were extremely comfortable. The soothing sound of the sea is something we love, both to have an afternoon drink by, and as a gentle sleep aid.
The house is very private, this always ticks our boxes, no one overlooks anyone else which is great. The house was stocked with nice little touches, a welcome basket with fruit and coffee (who wouldn’t enjoy that?) There are the little things too, like shampoo, soap and tissues, very nicely set up.
Good fishing and snorkelling outside the house. A little hard to get in and out on the slippery rocks. It is in a gated community, so it was quiet and we really enjoyed it. No one wandering past.
The owner was very helpful answering all our questions, as painful as they probably were. A great place for a family holiday; three rooms, one separate upstairs, a nice getaway if you need it, one downstairs, and one on the main level, where the older couple in our group stayed, and they were very comfortable.
Good laundry, we love the washing machines in North America.
One suggestion, a compendium with information about the house would be very helpful.
All in all, a great experience, and we will definitely be back.
We just spent an amazing week at this beautiful home! It is RIGHT on the waters edge and comfortably accommodates 6 people. We spent every morning and evening on the lanai enjoying the wonderful views, watching surfers, and listened to the surf all night long. It was so close to Kailua-Kona, that we visited often. The home was well appointed even with bicycles, beach chairs and snorkeling equipment for all. We had a wonderful vacation and would rent this property again and again.
Amazing views, great location! Close to Kona. House was perfect for us with bedrooms on each floor....would love to return some day (real soon)!
We loved it! Just minutes from the shops and restaurants in Kona. Right on the ocean. Beautiful view. The snorkeling gear, boogie boards and bicycles were in great shape and certainly added to our enjoyment.
