Our flight came in really late so we didn't get to Heavenly Splendor until about 10:40pm and Cindy stayed up to greet us and show us where things are! We really appreciated that. Then there was a bottle of champagne in the fridge - awesome welcome!
This spacious studio apartment addition to the Stewarts' property is very quiet yet close to downtown Kona. It has a great view of the shoreline below and is equipped with all the things you'd have if you were living at home. It is up on the side of a hill in the middle of a coffee estate with a view of the spectacular sunset each evening from the lanai which runs the length of the bungalow. We were also wondering where to attend church while we were there but didn’t have to worry since there was a church right at the corner of the street where the apartment was.
We had heavy rain a couple of nights and were worried that it would blow in since there isn't any glass on the windows or doors - just mesh. But no rain blew in - this little bungalow was designed perfectly for the weather.
Just one word of caution: for those of you who freak out over the occasional critter here and there - this isn't the place for you - but my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay as well as Cindy's hospitality and advice as to where to eat and what to take with us on our daily excursions.
Thanks so much Cindy!
