Our stay at Karoline's place was FANTASTIC and EXCEEDED our expectations. The place is very comfortable, has the privacy you need and was very (VERY) clean. Karoline is also a great host and she made us feel like home from the first minute. My wife and I loved this place and 3 out of the 4 nights we stayed in Kona we decided to come "home" early instead of going out to enjoy the apartment and the environment. Overall, this was the best airbnb experience we've had.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt in dem geschmackvollen Appartement von Karoline. Hier stimmte einfach alles, einschließlich der Beratung durch die sympathische Eigentümerin.
Karoline's apartment was even better than expected. It's a really lovely place with a great view. The place is also quite new, super clean, and well stocked with everything you'd need (even snorkel gear and beach towels to borrow!). Karoline was very nice and welcoming and we also enjoyed the company of her friendly dog Sundance. I was impressed by all the fruit trees - avocado, banana, mango, etc.
The only drawback to this place is that it is a bit of a drive (15-20 mins) uphill from Kona, so you definitely need a car. But if you're in the area for more than a couple days, you'll want to explore to the north and south of town anyway, so in that sense it's relatively central. It's surprisingly rural up there in Holualua so you won't hear any traffic, but you will hear roosters and tree frogs.
Overall, we'd love to go back and I'm happy to recommend Karoline's apartment.
Karoline and Sundance were there for our arrival and made our stay very welcome. This cozy condo has amazing views and is very warm and welcoming. It is clean and organized with lots of little extras such as beach chairs and reusable shopping bags. The lanai (porch) was beautiful, Sundance even joined us one night as we were star gazing. Close enough to town but far enough out so you don't get the hustle and bustle at your doorstep. Would have loved to stay longer. Mahalo!
Karoline was a perfect hostess and the apartment is fabulous. Such a quiet and peaceful space, with a relaxing view of the coast. We would definitely stay here again when staying on the Kona side of the island.
The reservation was canceled 36 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Karoline is a lovely host- considerate, thoughtful, and generous. My husband and I had a wonderful five-day visit at her beautiful apartment overlooking the Pacific above Kona.
The spacious apartment is so clean and perfectly appointed. It has everything you could want- big clean beach towels, a comfortable bed with great linens, and breezes from the ocean. There's a walk-in closet next to the bedroom which was great. The bathroom and kitchen have lovely fixtures and appliances. The open open layout of the kitchen, living room and lanai is terrific. The covered lanai is where we spent as much time as possible for meals, reading, and surfing the web using the excellent wifi.
Because the apartment was such a lovely spot we ended up fixing many more meals there than we intended.
The location is great! One can easily drive to beaches, town, and the airport in about fifteen minutes, yet it is a very peaceful spot with beautiful gardens and expansive views.
Karoline has a friendly dog named Sundance who greets guests, never jumps up, and will join you on your lanai if you like company. We enjoyed her company very much.
We highly recommend this listing, give it all five stars, and hope to return someday.
Thank you, Karoline, for such a wonderful visit!

I'm a native of Austria. When I arrived the first time almost 20 years ago on this island I felt like coming home. I had to leave of course, but eventually I managed to stay for good. Now I can share my home with travelers, and I will do my best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Being a professional cleaner you can expect the place to be spic and span.
I'm a quiet person who loves to garden, cook and read.
