Keli's place is a wonderful place to stay for your trip to the Big Island. It's tucked away on a gorgeous hillside overlooking the ocean and, even better, away from the touristy and more crowded areas of the area. The apartment is lovely -- nicely decorated, cozy, well-supplied, and private. Having coffee out in the garden was great, and her cute dog even came and said hi:) Keli was also super responsive, including providing us with a beach umbrella one day when we asked. I'd definitely come back here!
What a beautiful place on top of the hill overlooking Kona. Kelli was a great host and did a perfect job describing the place, so we knew exactly what we were getting when we arrived. Kelli met us in the driveway when we got there and showed us where to park. Your room will be in the house at the bottom of the driveway to the left. Kelli stays upstairs and you're downstairs in a completely separate unit. The view from the front yard is amazing, and the apple bananas were so yummy! I'll miss not being able to get these on the mainland.
The room was perfect with a very clean kitchenette and high ceiling bathroom. The Kona coffee on the table was a nice touch too, thank you! We only saw one of the dogs, and he was super friendly, following us around the yard and giving us a tour :)
Couple things to be aware of: The coqui frogs can be pretty loud, so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The bedroom has an elevated platform with a step that might be tricky at night, we left the bathroom light on to provide a little light just in case.
Book this room - you won't be disappointed!
This was the perfect place to stay for my solo vacation - close enough to town for activities, shopping, amenities, etc but at a nice elevation for cool and comfortable evenings. Keli was a great host - easy to contact and had lots of tips for things to see and do. The space was just like the photos, relaxing, clean, comfortable, with fluffy towels and lovely view of the sunset. If I'm lucky enough to return to The Big Island, I will definitely stay here again.
Great place to stay! Our First Appartment on the hawaiian islands without any bugs:)
Keli was a really nice host, too!
Keli was there to guide us down a challenging driveway, and helped us bring our belongings into the apartment. She was very friendly and even left us a box of candy to help us celebrate our 50th anniversary. The apartment was lovely, with new furnishings. It is compact but complete, and the bed was very comfortable.
5 stars! Keli was amazing and always made sure that my wife and I were enjoying our trip. She even gave us some wine and a hand written card because it was our honeymoon. Can't wait Till the next time we visit the island!
The Cozy Hideaway looks just like the pictures on Airbnb, and was comfortable and clean. Keli was very welcoming and provided us with a list of places to visit in the area, which were great recommendations. In addition, she has a "Big Island Revealed" guide book at the apartment that we used the entire time. She even provided sunscreen--very useful for those who forgot to pack it! Unfortunately we had bad weather while we were there, so the sky was too cloudy to enjoy the gorgeous sunset view -- but if you have better weather than us (which is likely), I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Thanks to Keli for a great stay!
About the Host, Keli
Aloha! I'm Keli. I grew up in Kona and love this town and the Big Island! While I moved away twice, it always calls me home…being a part of this community is a really special experience and visitors can feel the aloha from the moment they step off the plane. If I'm able to share any knowledge or connect visitors to the best surf instructor, shave ice place, or coffee shop…that's my goal! I love surfing, good books, great coffee, ahi poke, and bakeries. A hui hou!
