Interaction with Guests
I can provide guests with travel information and advice about where to go and what to see and how to get there.
The location of this home is ideal. It is at 1000 feet elevation so there is always a sea breeze and it is cool for sleeping at night (not like the heat near the ocean). Yet I am only minutes from town and shopping. Costco is nearby and I am less than 15 minutes from the airport. I am closer to the nicer beaches on the North Kona coast and Kohala coast than if you were to stay on Alii Drive or a condo in town. I have an acre of flowers and trees that you can wander around. This is a private location on a flag lot so it is removed from the street and the traffic.
Getting around Kona is easy-There is a rush hour during certain times, but usually you can get anywhere around town in about 15 minutes. There are 4 or 5 beaches within 15-30 minutes. The very best white sand beaches are 30-40 minutes North of town and convenient to my location.
Other Things to Note
Check-in time is 12:00pm - 6pm unless other arrangements have been made with owner.
There are papaya, mango, and avocado trees on the property and you can have as much as you can eat when in season. There is a barbecue grill for your use under the lanai.
This is a quiet neighborhood so I would discourage loud party groups.
Laundry use is restricted to one load per day.
Guests are not allowed to smoke on the premises.
