The description of the house was accurate. In fact we were pleasantly surprised. The house is in a residential private gated estate right on the ocean, not in a resort type setting which we liked. The house is very roomy. The open plan kitchen is a good size and well equipped. The lounge/dining area is large, with a small TV. There was also free wifi. When we were in the house we spent our time out on the large lanai (terrace/balcony) eating meals, and spotting whales, or watching the sun set. There is a great BBQ on the lanai, and a laundry room with a large washer and dryer. The bedrooms were large, with plenty of storage space, and the bathrooms were all a good size and functional. I stayed in the master bedroom which had a great double shower, and double sink combo. It also had its own balcony which was lovely. The master suite also has it’s own TV. The property was clean, and well maintained. The property is 20-25 min walk into the town of Kona where all the bars, restaurants & shops are, but I wouldn’t let that put you off – it’s easy to drive and park in Kona. It’s only a 5 min drive into town. Alternatively for a night out taxis are cheap and reliable (less than $10 USD for a people carrier into town).
You can walk 5min in either direction along the ocean front right from the house to get to little beaches with great rock pools – we saw a sea turtle!
I would definitely recommend this property to a friend.
