Situated just off the main road to Kona. There is a shopping centre a few minutes drive in one direction, main part of Kona is a few minutes in the other direction. One house back from the road with a bit of traffic noise at times but not too intrusive. Swimmable beaches scattered along the coast within walkable distance although you really need a car to get to the main part of Kona.
It's essentially a one-room self-contained apartment with enough cooking facilities for simple meals. Full-length windows open out with insect screens and a big central ceiling fan for ventilation. No airconditioning but the windows and fan work well and indeed was better than being closed in with an airconditioner. Off-street parking and some shade for the several units that make up this house. Outdoor BBQ facilities available - looked good although we didn't use them. Wifi OK, hardly aware of others in the house.
Dave, the owner met us on arrival. Friendly and accommodating although we didn't need anything extra on top of what the unit had.
Overall, we had a relaxing time there. It's got the feel of something from the 80's but everything worked and perhaps best of all it wasn't a high-rise insulated-from-everything multiplex. Laid-back and that suited us just fine!
