If you're like us, you love the ocean, the mountains, and everything in between. Our home is close to all the activities we love, but far enough away to unwind and enjoy our quiet evenings.

Mendy purchased this apartment in 1992

I have lived on the Big Island for most of my life. I have raised two children here. We love our island and love sharing it with visitors from all over the world.

Where you stay on vacation shouldn't be the most expensive part of your vacation. Our family loves to travel and we have always traveled on a budget. Vacation rentals are the best way to get the best value for your dollar.

Good base camp

  • 3 of 5
With a full kitchen and access to the owner's washer and dryer, my girlfriend and I found this ground floor suite to be a convenient base camp for exploring the Island. It was always comfortable temperature-wise and was very quiet and private. It's a short drive to some of the Island's best snorkeling sites (Kahalu'u to the north and Kealakekua to the south), and is close to the Keauhou shopping center, which is home to a KTA supermarket, Long's Drugs and various restaurants.

The owner is friendly and respectful of her tenants' privacy - we saw her only twice over our 10 night stay. Her dog and cat are very friendly ambassadors for the property. The suite was well stocked with towels, bedding and toilet paper, but could have done with a good cleaning and some basic maintenance; the window sills and light covers were strewn with dead bugs, the window screens were filthy and in some cases broken, the tile floor was dirty, and the toilet bowl leaked water for our entire stay - even though we alerted the owner to this, who assured us she would have it taken care of ASAP. Also, had to empty the dehumidifier's water tank the first night, as the machine was full and therefore issuing an alert to such.

Overall a pretty good value for the money, but in need of some TLC.

Good budget accomodation with caveats

  • 4 of 5
Rented for 15 nights Mar - April 2014
PROS.
Listing and photos accurate
Easy to find with EMailed directions
Covered parking ( with a flashlight for the steps in case you arrive late )
Well equipped and supplied, both Bathroom and Kitchen. Nearly everything we needed to use except our actual food was already there, much better than some we have rented !
Bedroom and Bathroom nicely fixed up
Comfortable bed, we slept well. Quiet at night
Spacious rooms
Little noise from upstairs
Fan in bedroom window was sufficient ventilation - never got too hot
Good and fast WiFi. When DVD player failed, it was replaced very quickly
Nice private Lanai with comfortable chairs ( but see below )
Has cooler, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie board and two sets of fins.
Both the owners dog and cat are nice.
All rooms except Kitchen were clean, the Kitchen mostly OK.
CONS:
Apt can not be locked up ( we could live with this - have solid suitcases we locked stuff in, and there was no problem )
There is a noisy / yappy dog at the neighbors. It was often quiet for hours, but at other times became very tiresome. Generally quiet at night. This is obviously not under the control of the owner of this rental.
INFO:
Coffee shop 1 block away. Convenience store and gas stn. 2 blocks
Choices market 6 miles south, Safeway and Walmart 7 miles north
About mid way between the Kona Beaches and the ones at Napoopoo and Two Steps.
If you like snorkeling, Two Steps is best - ask for directions, or Google it
RECOMMENDATION:
If the cons don't concern you, we are sure you will be satisfied with this apt.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a thorough review! The dog is a recent addition to the neighborhood. I showed your review to the property owner and I haven't heard a peep since. Mahalo!

Nice affordable stay

  • 4 of 5
We loved our stay in Honalo. The place had everything we needed and more. It was nice and quiet, but still close enough to everything. Great place to stay in when you want to explore the west side of the Island. It is really close to downtown Kailua-Kona and some of the best snorkeling spots on the Island.
Really enjoyed the Lanai were we had our breakfast every morning, and watched the birds surrounding us.
Great plus to be able to use washer and dryer.
Mendy was nice and helpful and respected our privacy.
Thank you, We would love to come back

Perfect Place for 1-3 Ppl. Great Host. Close to everything, yet tucked away

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for my 1st month, while getting situated in Kona. It was perfect. It within 10-15 min away from everything. Has everything you need to cook, also during our 1st week Mendy got us a grill. Mendy was a great host, anything we needed she got us. We enjoyed many of the nights under the stars on the lanai(patio), and some night listening to the light rain run down the tin roof. While we where searching for places for our 1st month, we kept finding places that after taxes, cleaning fees, and other crazy charges quickly exceeded our price range. With Mendy's ohana all that is included in the price you see. Your not going to find a more comfortable bargain for a 1 bedroom, kitchen, huge living room, dinning room, nice bathroom with stand up shower, and lanai (plus wifi and cable TV) anywhere within the island. My friend and his girlfriend slept on the queen bed, which was very comfortable. I slept on the fold out futon, Im close to 200lbs. It was the most comfortable futon Ive ever sleep on, and I slept their for a month. The convenient store within walking range has great snacks, drinks, and wine and beer. Mendy's place was a great experience. Thank you so much Mendy and Tiger.
