We met David when we arrived. He was very nice and gave us some directions for supermarket etc. The apartment is spacious and the kitchen area perfect for making a quick meal. There are laundry facilities in the building but we didn't make use of them. BBQ was available, however, not very clean. Thank you David.
This is an great place to stay in Kona. The suite is very large, clean, and private. The bed is comfy, the kitchen area perfect for making a quick meal, plus laundry facilities. An excellent value and a wonderful location - you can hear the ocean, short walk to the beaches, and a short drive to the main part of Kona. David is very responsive. Snorkels and boogie boards are available to borrow. I very much enjoyed my stay here.
This is an awesome place to stay in whilst in Kona! The suite is quite big in size, clean, and private. The bed is comfy, the kitchen area perfect for making a quick meal, plus laundry facilities in the building. Everything you could ask for and excellent value. Location is great too, you can hear the ocean at night, it is close to the beaches, and only a short drive to the main strip in Kona. Plus David is responsive with his communication and very attentive to the needs of the guests. I would definitely stay here again when on the west side of the Big Island. Highly recommended!
While the apartment is centrally located, we felt it was too close to the street--lots of traffic until late. To stay cool, the windows must be left open, and the street noise was pretty bad. The apartment is not fancy, it could you a few extra details to up its rating--soap, hair dryer, etc.
Unfortunately, I got hurt during our stay and had to return home. David was very kind and accommodating.
This was a great location and lovely room. David was a great host and very welcoming. My only disappointment was that I didn't stay longer. Thank you David!

About the Host, David
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.
