We enjoyed our stay in this nice, quiet neighborhood. The unit is a separate space of a home with it's own entrance, patio with gas grill and outdoor sink. Inside space is one large room and a separate bathroom pleasantly furnished. Unit includes small fridge, microwave, Nuwave burner for cooking, small kitchen appliances, dishes, etc. The very thoughtful owners have provided many extras like beach gear including snorkeling stuff, info on things to do, toiletries, and were helpful answering questions. The beach was a short walk and a great place to watch sunsets. Shops/restaurants in Kona need to be driven to (about 3 miles), but the owners also provide bikes which we rode into town. A great place to stay that's close enough to Kona without the crowds and traffic.

“Excellent Value, with lots of extras!!”

This is an excellent place to stay, very close to the beach but on a quiet dead end street. A two minute walk to a great beach spot and only minutes to shopping and other attractions. There were plenty of extras provided with this rental like, boogie boards, beach chairs, a beach cooler, snorkel gear and also extra bathroom items in case you forgot, or kitchen items too.

there is free parking in front and the place was nice and clean. a bbq is also available with a gazebo and patio furniture for dining outdoors.

The unit also has strong wifi and cable as well, in case you want to relax and stay in.

I would recommend this to anyone and likely stay again.

thnx.

“Great place, comfortable, easy-going”

We only saw the hosts during the few minutes at check-in. The rest of the time, we were gone or they were gone. But they were nice, and available if we needed anything. The room is comfortable, well-equipped, with fans to circulate the air for a bit of a breeze. An outside, shaded area was reserved for our use, where we could entertain a couple of friends and barbecue food. The wifi was strong and fast. There was pretty good snorkeling equipment, a couple of beach chairs and couple of nice boogie boards.

Minor points: I would have preferred a solid door between the bathroom and the bedroom, instead of a slatted door, for noise, privacy and odors; and I think they should install a bathroom exhaust fan.

All in all, an easy-going place, comfortable and nicely appointed.

Stayed here for 4 nights with my significant other. The owners had bicycles with locks ready for us to ride (although we didn't get a chance to ride them...next time!), fresh mangoes from the yard when we arrived, lovely bouquet of Hawaiian flowers, not to mention excellent guide books that we took with us on our island road trips! We enjoyed the provided boogie boards and snorkel gear. Could hear the ocean waves from a block away as we fell asleep. They gave us privacy so even though it was attached to their home, we felt like we had our own little cottage. Back porch was nice. Owners were quick to respond when we had questions. It was very hot and sweaty being Hawaii in the late spring, thankfully the fan was helpful, but still very hot. An A/C in the unit would be a cherry on top. Great price for the quality overall! Thank you Janet and Gina! Can't wait to return.

Quaint little bungalow with frig, microwave, and tv, just a few steps up the hill from White Sands Beach. Janet, your host, has provided all of the "toys" you need for a beachside holiday including mask, snorkel and fins. I highly recommend this place for your stay in Kona!
