About Karen Loudon

Karen is from Canada and Robert is from Louisiana, we met in Hawaii and our daughter was born here. We love the simple, slow pace of life of the Big Island!

Karen Loudon purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Karen Loudon chose Hawaii

We love this location, the proximity to Kona & beaches, the cooler elevation, with the sun rising from the slopes of Holualoa in the morning and the cool breeze flowing through our windows in the evening.

What makes this apartment unique

The sunsets are fabulous as well as evening stargazing.

Clean, homey, stocked with all you'll need

  • 4 of 5

We booked Karen's place when we needed to make a quick move from our previous rental without a chance to see it in person ahead of time. The photos on the site show it "like it is" and we enjoyed our stay there. The only drawback was some heavy footsteps upstairs in the evenings at times, but I can't fault owners with living their lives. Too late to add soundproofing. We appreciated the gas cook top, full size refrigerator and all the counter space compared to the place we had been.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for for feedback Mary, we enjoyed hosting you and your husband! I apologize for the loud footsteps, and I will be reminding my husband, who can tend to have a "lead foot" to walk more softly in the future, I only wish you had mentioned this to use during your stay. In fact, we have actually taken considerable steps, at considerable expense, to soundproof the floor/ceiling when we constructed the apartment in 2007, we installed insulation under the floor boards, a double layer of drywall with resilient channels that decouples the drywall from the studs, as well as sound absorbing acoustic underlayment under the flooring. Other than the footsteps, I don't imagine you would have heard any voices or any other sounds coming through the floor. Best Regards from the Loudon Family

Great time!

We had a great stay at this property. Karen and Robert were very friendly and the apartment was clean, nicely decorated and in a nice location. The apratment had pretty much everything you would need on a vacation. We really enjoyed ourselves and would for sure come back to stay here again. Thanks for the great memories!

Great Place for a great price

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this ohana suite for a week while searching for a long term rental. We have kids and I can say their property is very kid friendly. Lots of vegetation and fruit trees which we were given full permission to take what we wanted from. We were provided with a full household of utilities including pots, pans, plates, spices, blankets, beach toys, beach towels, you name it.

The property is about a ten minute drive from the airport and about fifteen minutes from downtown Kona. You do receive a guaranteed parking spot for one vehicle and there is plenty of open parking on the quiet street if you need additional spots.

If you're looking for a place to stay that isn't loud and is in a cooler climate, this is a good rental to pick.
