Interaction with guests
I live upstairs. The vacation rental apartment is downstairs. I am always available should guests need something or have specific questions. Guests may leave me a message on my landline, email me, or text me on my cellphone. If I am home, guests may come up and talk or visit with me.
Other things to note
In recent years Laaloa Avenue was connected to Kuakini Highway. It now connects Alii Drive to Kuakini Highway and is a tsunami evacuation route.
The connection has brought more traffic noise to the neighborhood. The vacation rental gets more traffic noise in the morning and late afternoon from commuter traffic. The vacation rental entrance faces Laaloa Avenue, and has a driveway and private parking space on Laaloa Avenue.

I have lived on the beautiful Kona coast on the Big Island of Hawaii for over twenty-five years. For twenty years I lived on a coffee farm in rural Honaunau on the lush slopes of Mauna Loa and produced delicious, world class Kona coffee. I have worked as an educator both in the USA and abroad and love to travel and meet new people from different cultures. I am co-owner of an import business in Kailua-Kona which features furniture, handicrafts, and decorator items from my travels to China, India, Bali, Thailand, and other parts of Southeast Asia and the Pacific. For the past five years I have lived near the ocean by Magic Sands Beach. I have loved the ocean and water sports since I was a small child.
