Birthday Trip was a great success
This house is great and was very much appreciated by my family and me for our trip to celebrate my mother-in-law's 60th. Less than the cost of a hotel or other places up in Kailua-Kona we got a great deal for our week on the Big Island. The homeowners have plenty of room for people to sleep, eat, relax, and have fun. The lanai out front allows you to watch the sunset every day (you are clearly facing west) and to watch the rolling waves come in in the morning while sipping your coffee. The gas grill was great to have out there, too. Grilled pork chops, fish skewers, and steaks in our time there. The layout and beds really allow for multiple people to be comfortable. There are 4 twin beds so non-couples and siblings can have their own bed and not sleep on the floor. Two large beds help 8 (we were 7) stay there comfortably. I never felt like we were crowded. It is about 30 minutes to Kailua-Kona and there is a good amount of driving to get around the island, but that would be true if you were staying anywhere on the island. It's not like Oahu with its H-Freeways. We drove down to the Volcano National Park and that was a great day trip. We spent a lot of time swimming and snorkeling at the beaches nearby and up in Kailua-Kona. The walk down to the pebble beach is not for the faint of heart as the road goes down to sea level from about 600-700 feet so it's quite steep in spots. There is room for a few cars at the bottom and if you take the 15 minute walk over to the more secluded black sand beach to the north, it's worth the trip. You're close to several coffee plantations, macadamia nut farms, beaches, and scenic points. A full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms plus a queen-sized futon, beautiful lanai, quiet surroundings, and house geckos (they stayed outside as far as I could see) for the low price for the week, you'd be crazy not to check this place out.
