My family of 5 (including 3 young kids) just returned from a wonderful vacation in Kona, and our stay at Kona Leilani was a large part of why this trip was so memorable. Michele provided great information on the area and the house before we even arrived, and then there was a complete folder of where to go for sightseeing, tours, grocery stores, restaurants! The photos of the house did not do it justice - it is so warm and inviting, and surrounded by lush, tropical landscaping. Birds singing in the morning, lots of lizards running around, but no mosquitos! We loved the black pebble beach that is just a few minutes away and went there every morning, and then spent the afternoons (after naps) sightseeing - snorkeling, visiting the City of Refuge, checking out other beaches, shopping. All within a 30 minute drive. Then back to the house to cook up some dinner and enjoy the beautiful sunset while eating on the balcony. My husband needed to do some work while we were there and the internet worked great at the house.
We will definitely recommend this vacation to family and friends!
