Interaction with Guests
I love contact with my guests and having lived here for 25 years I enjoy sharing all that I love about the island. I like being available when they arrive so that I can begin to get to know them, and to orient them to the area. I do travel some, and I always make sure that a neighbor/friend will check in on them and be of help if needed. I also stay in touch via email during their stay. It's important to me that my guests have a positive experience.
NO SMOKING PROPERTY
A really quiet neighborhood. NO LOUD PARTIES, or late night noise, requested of guests.
Kona does not have public transportation. A rental car is a necessity.
Other Things to Note
I enjoy hosting families, therefore, I do not charge the extra persons fee for children under 18 years of age. When listing the number in the party just list the adults and make note in the request that there are children, how many, and ages, please.
NO SMOKING ON PROPERTY, no late night loud parties, use of illegal substances or heavy drinking. Laundry is offered for a stay of 6 days or more and is to be done between 8am and 6pm by arrangement with the owner.
Star was very hospitable and the place was very well cared for. It had everything that I needed and I had a great time on the island. It was a convenient location close to the airport too! I'll stay here again if I'm back on the island.
Star was a wonderful host. The house is very clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone. If you are a dog owner and are sad about leaving your dog while on vacation, worry not as Star has a dog and her neighbors have dogs that who all enjoy meeting you and hanging out.
Star was a most gracious host and made us feel immediately at home. The space is bright, cheerful and provided good access to both downtown Kona and Kohala area beaches. We loved the dogs & cats in the neighborhood and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Thanks for making our family vacation special. :-)
Star war eine großartige Vermieterin! So herzlich, hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. Wir haben uns hier wie zuhause gefühlt. Die Wohnung war super, sehr groß und hat eine perfekte Lage für die Erkundung der Westküste und des Nordens der Insel. Die Nachbarschaft ist sehr ruhig. Schnorchelausrüstung, Strandtücher und Strandstühle sind vorhanden. Der Ausblick aufs Meer ist toll! Wir kommen gerne wieder :)
Wir hatten einen tollen Aufenthalt bei Star. Unsere zweijährige Tochter hat sich sehr über die zahlreichen Spielsachen, Bücher, Plüschtiere und Spielküche gefreut. Die Wohnung ist zweckmässig eingerichtet und ist perfekt für eine Familie. Restaurants/grössere Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind mit dem Auto in ca. 10-15 Minuten erreichbar.
Wonderful experience! We couldn't have asked for more - traveling with our 4 year old and 8 month old, Star made sure our stay was extremely comfortable! The property is very kid friendly and she provided us with everything from a playpen, bibs, high chair, swing, bouncer, changing station, diaper pail, little cups and spoons to very age appropriate toys for both kids! She welcomed us warmly (at 10 pm!) and had picked out bed time books for the 4 year old- he loved his room with dolphin night light and stuffed sea animals! She also has a range of beach stuff you can borrow. The property is not too far from the airport (hardly 10 minutes). I would recommend your own transportation to get to the beach/ Safeway/ walmart (all a short drivable distance away). You can see the ocean a couple of miles away and her beautiful garden from the ground floor unit. Overall very beautiful property to stay especially if traveling with young kids.
We couldn't have asked for a better spot to stay! Star was above and beyond accommodating. We traveled with our 9 month old and upon finding this out, Star outfitted the apartment with all the baby necessities. (ie. pack-n-play, bath toys, highchair, etc.) She even helped us line up a babysitter so we could have a beach day sans baby.
She was a lovely hostess--we would go back in a heartbeat!
Thank you, Star!

I am a retired preschool teacher, still working and living an incredible life of 25 years in Kailua-Kona. I have a wonderful dog named JoJo who is companion to my adventures. I love the beaches, snorkeling, and hiking. Just about anything outdoors makes me happy. I love sharing what I love about the island with my guests. I can help you tailor your vacation to be the memory of a great adventure!
