Karen's place was great! I enjoyed a relaxing time when I was not working and she was very quick to respond to my questions and make my stay comfortable and welcoming. The fruit and coffee were delicious! Thanks Karen!
The reservation was canceled 52 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Karen was very welcoming upon my arrival, taking me immediately to the apartment, giving me the low-down, then leaving me be to rest up from a long journey. She stocked the apartment with wonderful Kona coffee and produce from their garden (avocados, papaya, and delicious dragon fruit).
The apartment was perfect, with plenty of space to work, cook, eat, and relax, and a super comfortable bed. I loved the location, too--high above Kona town (but only a 10 minute drive), with an expansive view, a treed yard, comfortable and cool nighttime temperatures for great sleeping. It's situated nicely to get to some great hiking on the island (Waipi'o Valley is about an hour and fifteen minutes, Pu'uwa'a'wa'a cinder cone about 15). I absolutely look forward to staying here again!
Jessica, it was a pleasure having you, come back anytime! Thanks for bringing my attention to the tv, you have to turn it on and then use the cable input from the DVR. I will make a note with directions for future guests on how to use it, I realize now it may not be so easy for people who don't regularly use DVR's!
