Makes you want to move to the Big Island!

Our group of seven stayed at the Kailua Kona home for six nights. The rental area is the lower half of the home that the owner lives in. We seldom ran into or heard each other. I asked if we were making too much noise and the owner said no; I think he was being nice. There is space for two cars in the driveway. The home is situated in a quiet neighborhood overlooking downtown Kailua Kona and the ocean, which are minutes away.
The home is very comfortable. There are three bedrooms, which allowed for each of the three couples in our group to have their own. Our daughter slept in one of the four twin size beds in the cubicle area. One of the bedrooms is separated from the main living area by a curtain instead of a door-I'm guessing that this is because it doesn't have an egress window to exit through in case of an emergency-which makes it a little less private than the other two bedrooms. However, this last bedroom is still very comfortable to sleep in. All of the rooms have overhead fans to help circulate the air.
The kitchen is nice and has plenty of dishes, pots, pans and utensils. This makes it easy to cook in for most meals. There are two sink areas, each with their own refrigerator; the second refrigerator came in handy. There is also a propane powered grill on the patio that you're allowed to use.
There are two bathrooms, each with its own shower. There are plenty of towels, but there is a washer and dryer in one of the closets in case you run out. Having the washer and dryer makes it easy to pack light since you can do laundry during the week, if you're so inclined.
The media room is handy if you happen to be there long enough to get tired of all of the beaches-Did you know the water goes all the way around!-snorkeling, seeing the volcanoes, zip lining, shopping, etc... My only complaints are that the Halo 3 DVD is scratched and won't load and the Packer game wasn't on any of the 100's of channels!
The yard is nicely landscaped and makes for very scenic breakfasts. The hammock became a favorite place to relax for everyone, one-at-a-time that is. We didn't see any turkeys, but we heard a couple of gobblers one morning.
