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 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!
Our experience with our host "Star" was very positive. She welcomed us, did not bother us, but made us feel comfortable and at home. She has a lovely space to spend time in. The location was very convenient. We used the hwy 190 road most of the time to travel into Kailua-Kona to get to Safeway and Walmart or the farmers market. Costco is close to purchase gas for the car, as well as food and gifts for those at home.
Star was a wonderful hostess. Her walkout vacation rental was removed from the busy downtown and so peaceful. The view from her hillside home was amazing. On the Big Island you drive to the different beaches and sights so you really don't need to be downtown . Star gave us a lot of personnel tips to getting around and what to see. Thanks again for opening up your home to us.
We had a fantastic time in this place.
The location is amazing. Very friendly and safe neighbourhood, private parking, fresh lemons daily from the garden. Our host was kind and helpful. Definitely a 5 "star" experience. Go there. Enjoy.

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!
