Great elevation, great ocean view from lanai. Includes Internet service. I have two queen beds and a full bed. I have a sectional that is comfortable and can be rearranged as well as a queen size air mattress if needed. I have a cooler, beach chairs, and some boogie boards for the beach. The washer and dryer are available to guests. Matsuyama's market is a healthy .7 mile walk or drive. (HI Tax ID W13908552-01)
This is where I live when working on projects between our U.S. and Chinese offices. I will retire here in the next 4 years.
Billy Funk purchased this house in 2012
Cool temperatures at this elevation, nice grocery and take out just up the street.
I'm near the route to the airport or downtown Kona. You don't need a GPS to find your way around.
We had a family of 8 for our stay at this house, and we were all very comfortable here. We all travelled from different places to have a vacation together, and this place was perfect for us! The views of the ocean are beautiful, and the frogs "whistled" us to sleep every night. The house was stocked well with everything we needed, including extra linens and beach gear.
Billy kept to himself in his home downstairs, but was always very helpful if we needed something or wanted advice on places to see. The center of town is only a 15 minute drive, with grocery stores even closer. I would highly recommend this house for any vacation, and we will definitely be back!
Nice house with balcony with a good view of the Pacific. We stayed with our grown children and baby grandson. Billy was very accommodating and helpful. Everything we needed and expected was provided and we all had a great vacation together. We would love to come back again!
This house is in the hills, a little north of Kona. Just over 1,000 feet in elevation, it stays *much* cooler as compared to being right on the coast. You're only about 10-15 minutes away from town and it's far more comfortable than other places I've stayed on the island, there's also a small convenience store a 1/2 mile away so you don't have to drive into town for every necessity. Afternoons are often cloudy or rainy so if you're looking for lots of sun, you'll want to head down to the ocean after noon or 1:00pm. The house itself is clean and cozy with a deck that offers a panoramic view of the coastline, we spent mornings on the lanai drinking coffee and enjoying the view. Furnishings are comfortable, although not opulent - which was actually a plus in my book as we have young children. The owner of the home lives downstairs and is very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The only disadvantage I would list is that the house sits along a steep, somewhat busy road. Since we left all the windows open for the cool breeze, we did hear a fair bit of traffic during the mornings and evenings as people leave for work and return in the evening. Overall we had a very pleasant and would happily stay here again if we ever need to rent a home in Kona.
This place was fantastic for us and our 2 small children (beach toys and puzzles/boardgames in the house). Nice backyard and porch with beautiful view of sunsets. Billy was an excellent host, available should we need anything.
Billy was very helpful and accommodating. We saw his son occasionally, but he kept to himself. The house is adequate and clean. The beds are clean and comfortable, except we bought mattress pads as we can't stand sleeping on a plastic mattress cover. We loved the view from the lanai of the ocean and the sunsets, and would have used the deck more but the road noise can be quite annoying. There is parking for one vehicle, and we managed to squeeze 2 in for part of our stay. The kitchen is fairly well equipped, and we did most of our meals at the house. We love the general location of the house - close to the airport, Costco and the nicer beaches north on the Island. We have stayed in this area before, but on a quieter street.
Great central location, easy access to Kona and Westside Beaches. We spent a week here during the holidays and did many day trips all over the island. Even the drive to Volcano was only 2 hours from here or Mauna Kea (the top) in an hour. The elevation of the place gives it a view of the water and relatively cool temperature compared to down at the beach. Kitchen has everything you need. I requested a coffee grinder and the owner set one out for us. It was great having separate bedrooms for the kids. Owner has clearly responded to previous reviewers with cooler, sand toys, updated furniture etc. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
