This place is amazing. The big island is the best island and Kona is the best area. This house is perfectly located just off Alii Drive. If you've never been to Kailua/Kona, this is where you want to be. It's two miles from town, 1 and 2 miles from amazing beaches but also across the street from a secluded ancient canoe landing where sea turtles swim all day every day. You are best to have a car to explore the island but if you don't you could get away with the transit a block away that runs through regularly. You don't need to bring anything other than your swim suit. The house is very well equiped with excellent quality snorkle gear and boogie boards, beach mats, coolers etc., it is endless. The house is very clean and spacious and in a quiet dead end street where you won't be bothered like in a hotel. There is costco, walmart, Safeway, Target and so on 10 minutes away. It is the ideal house in an ideal location on the ideal island in Hawaii. It is great for couples or a family - so relaxing and peaceful yet minutes from everything and everything you need is in the house. Just show up, relax and enjoy.
