Just 2 miles from the Kona International Airport, 3 miles to the closest Beaches, Surf spot, Coffee Cafe with the best Kona coffee, Costco, Restaurants and only 7 miles to Kailua Kona town. We are located less than 10 minutes to Kekahakai State beach/Kua Bay, 15 minutes to Kukio beach, 25 minutes to Beach 69/Hapuna Beach and 30 minutes to Kaunaoa beach.

The state of Hawaii's General Excise tax of, .04167 and the Occupancy (transit taxes) of .0925 are incorporated in my nightly room rates.

1. Check-in will depend on the arrival information you provide. Because I have a dog, I must have your arrival time prior to you coming (at least two hours or more), so that someone can be home to meet and greet you. I work a 10 hour shift at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai (full time) outside of the home, therefore I am not always at home. Airbnb is secondary to our full-time jobs.

Check-out, is at 10:00 am. Early check-in, will be permitted, providing the previous guest has checked out. No restrictions on how late you can arrive. At your arrival, I have a registration form for you to fill out.

2. It is customary in Hawaii to remove all footwear, before entering someone's home. Please leave all shoes, sandals, slippers etc., outside (please, no dirty feet either)! Also please make sure that all the lanai gates are closed and locked at all times. This prevents the dog and babies from going out on the street.

3. NO consuming of food or drinks allowed in the bedroom, water is OK. Eating will be permitted at the dining table and or breakfast bar only.

4. Please stop all loud noises by 9pm. As a courtesy to others who may be asleep, please refrain from slamming the bedroom and bathroom doors.

5. No smoking is allowed in the home. Smoking will be permitted outside, at the front of the house, ashtrays provided for your use.

6. Absolutely no illegal drugs of any kind, is permitted in the home or on the property.

9. Bikes, Surf Boards, Stand Up Paddle Boards, etc., should be kept on the Lanai (pourch) or in the garage room.

10. In case of an EMERGENCY, who should be contacted? Please write that person's name and telephone number on the back side of the registration form.

It was such short notice that we inquired a place to stay in Kona for one more night in our 10-day vacation. I am so thankful they allowed us to stay in such a short noticed. I literally contacted them at 1:00am the same day and was allowed a late check in time at 5:30pm. The room was bigger than I thought it would be and they offered a business like feel to the resident. They have a pup at the home that is like a guard dog but he's very loving after the owner introduces you to him. The home was very close to the airport. Again, we stayed a night and it was nice. When I come back to Kona I will look into staying here again. Thank you again!

Good location. It's really close to the airport. Room is clean and no bugs in the room but there's some little bugs and little lizard around the house and living room. Someone told me that's usual at the Hawaii so it wasn't a big deal for me but if you don't like bugs or lizard, this house is not for you. Only problem I had was drain problem and hot water. Bathtub drains little bit slow and I like to shower with hot water but it didn't work well. If you trying to shower with hot water, you'll get warm water so it wasn't too bad. Everything else was great. There's a guard dog in the house and he is very friendly but if unwelcomed people come home, he is very protective. Very smart dog. The host responses very quick. If you have a rental car, parking lot is available and host lets you use refrigerator and kitchen.

My mom and I stayed for one night just after arriving at the airport. Chandy's place was very easy to find and as close as you could get to the airport which was really convenient for a late arrival. My mom and I slept comfortably and even though there were roads nearby, we couldn't hear them or the airplanes at night. We also were able to meet the other family that was staying there which was nice because we could share our experiences. Chandy offered wonderfully thorough suggestions on activities around the island, places to eat, and must-do's which really enhanced the quality of our trip.

I loved the convenient location Chandy's home in relation to the Kona airport. I experienced a very comfortable night. To top off my stay Chandy was extremely helpful to pick me up and drop me off at the airport. I highly recommend at Chandy's.

I was born and raised in Hawaii and I am of Hawaiian descent. I love hula, making lei's and meeting new people from all over the world. I'm the kind of Hawaiian that loves poi, but I do not like poke (raw fish), a'ama crab or anything raw! I am a greeter at the Kona International Airport for the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. I help people from all over the world who are stranded at the airport because of their missed connections or flight cancellations. By accommodating them with a comfortable place to stay. And those who come to Kona on a whim, with no hotel reservations. With my 24 years of experience in the hospitality industry I believe that I will be an excellent host for all future guests.
