'Ssh, this immaculate 800 sq ft one bedroom deal is a downright steal for longer stays (four night minimum). Located in an upland residential neighborhood, the unit features many convenient touches: full kitchen, filtered water, patio tables and use of washer-dryer. Wheelchair accessible; low cleaning fee.'/
Located at the 800-foot elevation overlooking Kailua Bay, meaning cooler temperatures during afternoons and evenings. 5 minutes from the beach and downtown Kailua-Kona. 800 sq. ft. of private living space. You don't have to share kitchen, bbq or patio.
