At first I was unsure about renting out an owner owned unit ... Richard was very patient regarding all my questions! Once I got settled in, I realized just how great a choice I had made. I traveled alone so I probably was a bit more hesitant than the average traveler. However, once I got acquainted with the area, I was so happy about this unit.
The unit was adorable, perfect "Island" theme... the balcony...you can hear the ocean from the balcony, as well as see it! Walk downstairs, and a few feet, and your on Ali'i Drive. Great spot to walk to any of Ali'i Drive's restaurants, bars, attractions, and shops. You meet some great local people just wandering around the area. Farmers market almost next door- try out the pineapple & banana with chocolate chip loaf! I felt safe and comfortable (the bed is very cozy!) during my short stay. Also, if you do have a car, there are some great beaches along the way, and you can drive a couple of hours to the volcanoes, etc. while taking in the views. Only wished I had booked for longer! Oh and the unit's caretaker, Sherill, is great. I had to call her to ask a question and she was just so lovely to speak to.
Next time I plan on staying in Kona I will definitely be contacting Rick and Colleen!
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: Natalie: Happy Thursday to you! My wife and I are always happy when a guest likes our studio for the same reasons we do. We only hope you can get back for an extended stay to explore the Big Island that we love. And yes our friend Sherill that cares for our studio, is the best. Without her, what our studio has to offer would not be possible.
Thanks again! Rick and Colleen
