Because of the shear size of this house you just felt relaxed. Lots of room for everyone. Loved it so much. Really what I needed.
The house was great for our party of 5. Very spacious, great location, and no problem checking in and out. Highly recommend.
We enjoyed staying here. Its very spacious and open. Right on Alii dr. Close to stores and restaurants. Its not too fancy to where you feel you can't touch anything but clean enough that I was comfortable letting my 18m old run around. The house is hot during the day but cools off at night. We were out most of the day so it didn't bother us too much. The 2nd bedroom has the pool table in it, so its not terribly private, but fine for close friends/ family. We enjoyed playing pool and used the BBQ grill every night.
This was an awesome house in an incredible location! The beds on the lanai were great. Everyone in the house had a comfortable place to sleep. The house was large enough for everyone to get space and enjoy the Kona afternoon. It's close enough to everything that nothing was more than a 15min drive right up the road! David was great! Easy to communicate with and made my first AirBNB experience easy and hiccup free.
Unfortunately, a huge disappointment. The description of the outdoors coming inside is truly accurate based on the number of roaches and lizards coming inside the house with their host of other winged friends.
Has more of a feel of a converted bar or beach cabin. The pictures while accurate do not quite convey the age/rundown nature of the items.
Considering all these things it could still have been somewhat improved if it had actually been clean around the windows and high dirt areas.
The area is great, the beaches near by are truly fantastic. This is a superb neighborhood, however this is not the house for families or groups expecting a quality clean stay. The snorkel gear is present, however on par with used walmart equipment. The house has great potential but needs some updating and definitely some cleaning and pest control.
Good price for the location and size of the house. David was very accomodating and easy to communicate with.
What a fabulous comfortable laid back experience. The house was equipped with everything we needed. Definitely a great place for children. When we come back to the island we will rent the house again.:)

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.
