Our family( son, wife, her parents) has booked a private home near Kona for a week, We will probably do fairly touristy things in that week. I'm normally more a single traveler who frequently avoids the tourist track. So....I'm thinking of going three or four days early, renting a jeep, driving the coast all the way around and hopefully find a few beautiful small places to stay that are quiet, beautiful, and off the beaten track. Does anyone have thoughts on a few places I could stay as I drive around the north, Hilo & then South side? I plan on following 19 up to either or to Honoka'a then 19 to Hilo then 11 South to Green Sand Beach or the tip (?) and back to Kona. Do you think this is do able in four days before I go back to Kona? Does anyone have some thoughts on places to stay as I drive around the East side? I'd really appreciate any advice, help!
