There is Keauhou trolley that runs from Keauhou to Kona which passes by us. There is also a mass transit bus service that runs by that goes around the island.
The home is located across the street from the ocean so most windows are only screened in with shutters that can be closed for privacy. This is done so that you can take advantage of the ocean breeze. We ask that you are considerate to others when using the TV, the sound travels easily with no glass in the windows.
Smoking at front of property, no smoking in building.
My wife and I moved here after having vacationed in Kona ourselves. The weather is warm and so is the water temperature year round. Kona is a community of good health, from all the out door activity's, both ocean and on land, and healthy eating. We both grew up on the coast of southern California which we thought was paradise. After having spent time here in Kona during the winter months we found that this was true paradise. We decided we wanted to be a part of the Island life. Now we have a place for others to come stay and find what we fell in love with. It has it all from fishing,snorkeling,hiking to exploring the volcanoes and water falls.
