I visited Kona the week of Ironman and had the absolute best time! The apartment is spacious, bright, clean, quiet and very close to town, shopping and dining. It's a lovely one bedroom apartment with a little private garden perfect for morning tea or to just relax in, and the pool is perfect for an evening swim. Rick and Suzie were great host and were there when I arrived. They have snorkel gear, boogie boards umbrellas, and even a little cooler for you to take to the beach. They were also very helpful in giving suggestions of places to visit during my stay. If you are looking for a place to stay in Kona, I highly recommend staying here. It's a great place, it's quiet and close to everything. When I make it back to Kona, I will make sure to stay here again. Mahalo Rick and Suzie!
