This unit is a stand-alone structure located at the front of a house occupied by a young family with a 5 year old son. The unit offers a kitchen, dining area, queen size bed and bathroom inside. There is 7 feet of kitchen counter space which includes a kitchen sink with garbage disposal, microwave, double hot plate, coffee grinder and coffeemaker. The bathroom is equipped with a toilet, vanity and shower corner. The bathroom is separated from the main area by partial wall and a curtain for complete privacy. Right outside the front door is a small refrigerator with a freezer drawer. Also located there is a washing machine shared with the house occupants ( can be used anytime not in use). Beside the unit is a covered sitting area with a grill shared with the house occupants (can be used anytime not in use). This unit also has a screened opening between the top of the walls and ceiling to allow for ventilation and natural light. This opening may also be a source of occasional neighborhood noise at night on this short residential street. Due to higher elevation and ventilation the unit does not get hot and at night the temperature may drop to the lower 60's during the winter months. Everything is new, clean and in working conditions making your stay comfortable and convenient. We enjoyed it from mid February to mid March.
I have to say I enjoyed my stay. It was a nice, clean, and quiet little
place in a nice neighbourhood. It was perfect for a traveller like me who
doesn't care much for over-priced all inclusive resorts. I am very happy to
recommend it to my friends and family.
My wife and I live in Fairbanks, Alaska. After visiting the Big Island numerous times over the years we purchased this old house and decided to start fixing it up. The main house was built in 1972.
This studio is very conveniently located if you are staying in the Kona area or your trips start from Kona. When we visit the Island we spend most of our time in this area and make day or half day trips from here, getting back in time to go downtown for a dinner. I also feel that this studio has about everything you will need for a vacation at a fair price. You can get to most shopping centers, restaurants and downtown Kailua-Kona in 5 to 10 minutes.
This is meant to be a budget rental. It has the things you need but not necessarily luxury items. It provides a chance for a more authentic Hawaiian experience. You are not isolated by concrete walls, you may feel like you are living in a small Hawaiian community.
(Street Address: 74-5148 Kialoa Place, Kailua Kona 96740) Our rental property is located in one of the oldest (early 70's subdivisions in Kailua-Kona) with an elevation of 972 feet. It is the first subdivision you will reach driving up Palani Road above Kailua Town. It is close to an incredible amount of things that the Big Island has to offer. Here is a generalized breakdown of some attractions / activities and time it takes to get there from our place. Restaurants, Farmer's Market and Grocery/Retail shopping from 5 to 20 minutes one way. Closest Grocery is Safeway and Walmart 5 minutes. Costco about 15 minutes away. Beaches are from 10 minutes Old Airport Beach Park to Hapuna (40 minutes N ), Mauna Kea (45 minutes N). Going South Pier and Kailua town 5 to 10 minutes, White Sands on Alii drive is about 15 minutes, there are several other shoreline places here as well and a fantastic place to snorkel here at Kahaluu Beach Park (20 minutes away). Further South are Captain Cook and Ho'Okena Black Sand Beach Park and Two Step Beach for Snorkeling. Even though the distance is not that far allow for about an hour to these places because of traffic. Well I will provide more information later because there is so much to do but I hope this will give you some ideas.
