Booked online and as others have mentioned, Sandy is very accommodating. What you'll love, is the view and proximity to the water. Great opportunity to explore tide pools, but as others have mentioned not a swimming beach. The local shopping center is close and convenient with lots of restaurants. After exploring the big island, I'm glad I made Kona my home base. You can easily access lots of activities from this location. I just wish the beach out front was a swimming beach.
Others have mentioned the concern over AC and I was skeptical at first but with the ceiling fans and oscillating fans the townhouse was very comfortable.
My only gripes are the notes/warnings put on everything and the laundry situation. I understand there are rules but a single intro letter emailed and signed off by renter as well as a spare copy left as reminder at check in would be fine. Seemed to cheapen the vibe like I'm at a Motel 6. The note about being charged $25 for leaving more than two loads but reading the note you can only do the king sheets or twin sheets by itself requires you to do laundry before you leave or face a $25 security deposit reduction.
Would recommend this rental to any small family.
