I stayed here for 4 nights during a writing/vacation trip to the Big Island. It was wonderful. I stayed in a downstairs unit that had tons of windows, which provided plenty of natural light and fresh air. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything I needed to make my own meals. The bed was comfy with lots of pillows, & there was a ton of closet/storage space. The unit was clean & surprisingly spacious for a studio-style set up.
The property location was perfect. 10 minute drive from the airport. The house is up on the mountain & in the clouds, but I was down at the beach & in the sun (weather varies dramatically here, even within a couple of miles) in less than 10 minutes. This is something to consider, because it's cooler up on the mountain & may make for more comfortable sleeping after a long, hot day at the beach. The house is in a quiet, calm, tropical residential neighborhood. It's a 4 minute drive up the mountain to a well-stocked neighborhood grocery store called Matsuyama Food Mart. The store has some decent carry out food--pizza & Hawaiian-Asian cuisine if you don't feel like cooking. The larger chain grocery stores like Safeway are a 15-20 minute drive down the mountain. Groceries are expensive here, & I didn't find the prices at a place like Safeway much different than those at Matsuyama's.
There were considerate touches from Della that made my stay even better: beautiful leis & a tropical bouquet to greet me; tons of fresh clean towels; fresh papaya & cherries from trees just outside the door; snorkeling & beach equipment for free (warning: test the snorkeling equipment before using in the ocean. I found a lot of missing or broken parts from past guest use/abuse); & farm fresh eggs from Della's chicken coup. The other folks staying on the property were quiet, considerate & friendly. I was a young woman traveling alone & felt completely safe. The whole place was quiet by 10pm & the other guests/tenants were up and moving by about 6am (it was hard to sleep past this time because of this, so just be aware if you're a night owl). Overall, I would highly recommend this place!!
We had an awesome five night stay one of the upper units. Ours had a great ocean view. The unit is very clean and has everything you need. An extra bonus was a nice bouquet with Bird of Paradise flowers and leis. The property is gated, so very safe. It is only about ten minutes from the airport and about fifteen minutes to Kailua Kona; there is a grocery store about five minutes away. Beautiful beaches are also close by; this is just the perfect spot to explore the west coast of Hawai'i Island.
We rented this unit from Feb 4th to Feb 14th 2016 and this was my first experience with VBRO. I can't imagine finding a better value anywhere on the Big Island. Della (the owner) was so kind and helpful and very accommodating. The unit was clean, modern, and very comfortable. There are folding chairs, a cooler, snorkel gear, and other various accessories that can be borrowed for the day. These things are VERY expensive to rent. Also there is a modern gas grill that can be used by guests. We used it several times.
Della also had a hand-made lei waiting for us and a couple of bottled waters. We arrived in from a late flight and didn't have time to stop for anything on the way. The water was a lifesaver! If you are considering staying in the Kona area, I can't imagine doing any better than this unit. It's that good!
Thanks Della, the next time we visit Kona, we'll be looking to you first,
A great place to stay on the Kona coast- Della has made this place a really nice, comfortable place to stay. The unit is spacious and well kept with towels, lovely bed linen, comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen. It was brilliant to have the beach equipment and snorkel gear to use and the fresh flowers and leis were really thoughtful. This is great base for exploring the whole west side of the island, and away from the busy resort areas. The apartment was cool and comfortable. Booking and check-in was easy. Highly recommended. Thank you
We loved staying here! It was clean and the perfect elevation for sleeping temperature!
Della was kind and made us feel very welcome! The perfect place to come home to after a day of exploring!
One of the best owners I have ever come across. We reached there pretty late and was having difficulty in getting the address which was completely our fault. When we called her, she not only received our call at 1:00 AM her time but was there over the phone until we got into the place!
Whatever on the Earth could be required to feel at home was there in this unit.
Such a secured and cozy unit!
