About Mendy

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

Why Mendy chose Kainaliu

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Nice place to stay... all the needed appliances, clean washroom, free wi-fi, very close to everything. I would recommend Kaya cafeteria in 2 minutes.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i stayed for a week at the house and the overall experience was perfect. It was very cozy and Mindy is awesome. Roomy and well stocked with everything. We liked the fact it was outside of kilo kona but still easy access to everything we wanted to see and do. We will definitly be back as soon as we can

Inexpensive Rental

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I spent the week diving Kona. We used the property as our home away from home while on the island. I was worried about dogs barking as a previous review mentioned. It was quiet, no barking, it was clean, and nice. Kitchen was superb.

The pull out bed was fine. Two step is very close for diving.

Can't wait to come back.

Comfy not fancy

  • 5 of 5

This quiet apartment was a pleasant refuge from the intensity of the Kona coast. There's lots to do around there and it's great to have such a comfortable lodging.

It's not luxurious, but it is clean and the kitchen is well-stocked. Mendy and Tiger were helpful and friendly.

Good place to stay while visiting Kona

  • 4 of 5

We live on the Hilo side of Hawaii but like to visit Kona. This place works well for us. It's close to shopping but well away from the hotel traffic. The full kitchen allows us to make a few meals making our stay more affordable. It's very pleasant eating on the lanai watching the birds. We really appricate that we can bring our kitty with us. We probably would not go to Kona if we had to put the kitty in a kennel. Overall the place is very clean and nicely furnished, nothing fancy but very affordable.

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.
