About this listing
I prefer guests that want to explore, and go see the island in a way that few visitors are able to. If you want to adventure with a tour guide that knows the island intimately, look no further.
Ocean sunset view by the pool and a lounge like feel inside. Private room and bath, a well as an outdoor shower. Only 7 minutes to the airport and 15 minutes to town, shopping, restaurants, and beaches. At 1300 ft elevation it's perfect temperature day and night. Birds sing at sunrise and sunset and the neighborhood is quiet all day long.
Full kitchen complete with juicer, blender, french press, and steamer/rice cooker. Grill High speed internet, Wi-Fi, and basic cable. ai(patio/porch/deck) with an expansive view, comfortable seating, and a BBQ grill. Guests have full use of all appliances and are asked to clean up any messes after use.
Interaction with Guests
I enjoy all kinds of company. Let's go surfing one day at a nearby spot and check out town. Take a couple day out of Kona and hike through the rain forest to see the lava. I love playing tour guide as it gets me out doing the things I love. Waipi'o waterfalls, Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, hikes to remote, unoccupied beaches. Positive, adventurous attitudes are a must to keep up with me. You tell me what you'd like to do and I'll cover the logistics and tailor fit an exciting and spectacular vacation.
We should discuss your vacation plans well in advance, as I am employed full time on top of my other businesses, and I would need a bit of forewarning to accommodate any desires for extensive sightseeing or adventuring.
I must have several weeks notice, as I am required to request time off no less than 18 days in advance.
Also, compensation is a must for me to pass up viable income, in order to play tour guide.
Rates vary according to desired itinerary.
Also, I'm in the habit of making juice every morning, however, guest are in charge of making their breakfast, unless arrangements are made. I keep the price low by not over-extending myself and am not expected to serve guests. Providing comfortable accommodations at a great price is what can be expected.
Location, privacy, and comfort are the highlights of this spot I call home. Close to everything, yet secluded in a nice neighborhood.
I'll cover the transportation, you cover fuel. I own a reliable 4WD vehicle and will drive us where ever you like.
No smoking, guests are asked to clean up after themselves, and out of respect for any neighbors, no ridiculous amounts of noise.
About the Host, Jesse
10 year resident of Kailua Kona. Family presence in the islands since the 40s.
I keep a tidy house and enjoy meeting new people. I'm adventurous, active, and quite familiar with the island and all that it has to offer. Surfing, hiking, camping are just a few of things I like to do in my spare time. Ask me a question and I'll likely have an in depth answer.
