Tom's place was perfect for our time in Kailua! It's in a great location - on the ocean and close to town but still quiet and relaxing. We spent most of our days exploring the island, so it was nice to come back to the unit, sit on the patio and have a beer or dinner. Everything was clean when we arrived. Tom answered all of our questions and was accessible throughout our stay if we needed anything. We would definitely stay again!
Aloha to Jen, We emailed a bunch of times and she was always very nice. I like when guests ask questions, since I know the area and my apartment so well, as my nice housekeeper and I do the maintenance. We love it, and love to share it. The best summation is what Jen wrote me just after she left, she said "Thanks so much! We had a great time!" Jen would be welcome back at any time at my best rates, and she gets my best rating Sincerely, Tom Kahl
Tom was excellent to deal with, accommodated all of our requests in a timely fashion, and we had a couple including an extension and late check out request. All prompting set up by Tom.
A well organized condo! We felt right at home in the large multi-use room. 2 nice sized pools with great views of the ocean. The outside common use grill was very convenient and we had no problems grilling at dinner time. Thomas was quick to respond to our questions, and was helpful in providing a binder complete with information about the resort, the town of Kona, and a handful of other attractions. There are some beaches nearby, and several others within a short (and well worth it) drive in either direction along the coast. We had an excellent visit, at night, to Mauna Kea where the view of the night sky above the clouds was mesmerizing! Also a short trip to Greenwell Kona Coffee farms and tours. Parking right in front of the unit was never a problem and all of the staff was friendly and helpful.
The condo is cozy, clean, quiet, comfortable and has a lovely view, and the location made navigating the area easy. Tom was kind and accommodating, and easy to reach via email and phone. Perfect Kona experience.
Tom was on the island so we met him upon arriving. He was very interested in making sure we were set and having a great stay. His studio and the lanai were v e r y peaceful and beautiful. No complaints at all on this rental and would stay with him again. The only suggestion I have is for a step stool in the kitchen. The cupboards are all very high and even at 5'4" I had difficulty reaching everything. So much for being vertically challenged.
Tom, thanks for your part of our wonderful trip.
Very nice stay at Thomas' place. Very clean, spacious, good location. I highly recommend it.

About the Host, Thomas
After college at Pennsylvania State University, I started from scratch, a successful outdoor store called Outdoor Experience. Ironically, except for leading trips and teaching windsurfing, it kept me away from the outdoors. I sold it and moved to the San Francisco Bay area. I invested in homes in San Francisco, Ca. and Park City, Utah. Loving the outdoors and nature naturally drew me to Hawaii. It's so special, no where else on earth combines Fun, Excitement, and Beauty with a perfect year-round Climate.
I searched the Kona Coast with the best agents in Kona. Royal Sea Cliff Resort, has the best of all worlds. Beautiful maintained and superbly designed and on best part of the Ocean and Coast. It is the closest Resort to Kona, and it is the #1 rated Resort in Kona.
This Architecture is the best of the modern styles. It works so well with the Land and the Ocean, and the ancient Lava Flow Bluff. Though the buildings look imposing, they are not over 25' tall at any one place. One special feature is having most of the parking in the building, out of the Sun, raising my studio for a better view, and freeing the grounds for tropical Gardens. Only a few Studios were built, and are special since they are always at the end of the wings, surrounded on three sides with lush tropical vegetation. Very private and very peaceful.
