Amazing location steps from best snorkeling beach, surf lessons with beautiful view of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay on the 2nd level of this 3 level home. It is beautifully situated, just steps away from the best snorkeling beach on the island with a surf shop just down the road. The home was clean, comfortable and well equipped. We loved the open design of the kitchen to the living room with 2 separate patio door access to the Lanai for viewing the ocean and beautiful sunsets. For a large group there was enough room for hanging out without being in each other's space too much . We also appreciated it's location for being far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Kona to really be able to unwind and relax. Grocery stores and amenities were close by making it convenient to get supplies and food as needed. The owner, Steve was one of the best parts of renting this accommodation. We really felt welcome and enjoyed chatting when we occasionally ran into each other. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful home!

Best location for snorkelling/surfing and a lovely home for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

First off - Steve was a wonderful host! He met us at our "home away from home" to open up and help with any questions which was really appreciated since we arrived on a late flight.

The house was clean, comfortable and well outfitted. Our favorite part was the open design of the kitchen and the double patio door access onto the deck. We spent much of our time, while at the house, enjoying the deck that overlooks the ocean and found it great for viewing the world famous Hawaiian Sunsets!

The location was superb - right across from the best snorkelling beach on the Island! This became a daily favourite activity. It was also steps away from a great surf lesson shop and a short drive to groceries, drug store, etc.

We loved our holiday here and would highly recommend it as a top place to stay!

Thanks again to Steve and Carrie for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Comfortable, friendly vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Our host was very helpful, friendly, and generous.

The flat had a view of the ocean, a great place to sit in the shade and read in the morning.

We could walk across the street to see sea turtles, snorkel, and let our grandsons play in the sand.

We wanted for nothing. Snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler, were all available for our use.

The location was out of the worst of the traffic of the town, but with a nearby grocery store.

The flat wasn't fancy, but perfectly fit our needs with 8 people ranging in age from 2 to 67.

Fantastic Location and Service

  • 4 of 5

Two couples stayed in the "B" unit and it was a great experience. The service and location was fantastic. Only about 100 paces to get to the beach, you watch the surfers and snorkelers from the lanai and hear the waves come in when you go to sleep. The interior was not the newest but had plenty of living space and good kitchen supplies. The lack of air conditioning wasn't a big deal but did get a bit warm during the middle of the day.

Defjinitely paradise

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely excellent location! Walk down your driveway, cross the road and there is an outstanding snorkeling beach. We stayed in the top floor unit-you can not beat the view-especially as you watch the sun dip below the horizon. The unit was spacious, airy and most comfortable and you can hear the ocean waves at night while in the bedrooms Steve is a genial and very helpful host. Location-did I mention? Just outside hub-bub of Kona so you get the relaxed tropical feel but within a quick drive down to shops and restaurants.
