We live in Kona and had one Monday off, so our friends invited us to stay with them here. It was an easy drive over the new Saddle road, beautiful to see our island. Since we were staying in a fully furnished home, we didn't pack much. When we saw the house, right on its own private natural pool, we thought how impressive it was for the remote area. First order of business was to put on water shoes, swim suits, grab our mask and snorkle. A short walk to kapoho tide pools and quickly we were in the ocean with beautiful fish and unusual coral. It was easy access and calm warm water. Back at the house, beautifully fully furnished and relaxing, we fixed dinner and lingered at the covered outdoor pavilion. We loaded the dishwasher and watched a movie. My husband and I had a bedroom with a private bathroom and 2 sinks. We enjoyed a warm swim in the morning after breakfast in our private tide pool. The location offers more, but we just stayed there until driving back because it's so nice. I suggested that we return to celebrate our 35th anniversary in Nov. or anytime is OK with me.
