Interaction with Guests
Aloha give me a call or email/text or catch me on social media any time so I can answer your questions about Hawaii and my home...I am a high raw foodie so things like a blender, food processor and juicer are standard kitchen things...
I'm sorry but at this time I cannot provide refrigerator space.
Fresh papaya abounds on the property if it is ripe and on the steps or the counters you are welcome to it..
Quiet suburb...within walking distance to the ocean and to trails, trolley runs from early morning to early evening...connecting you to manta ray watching, dancing, fabulous places for lunch and dinner...
Our Island is so big that having a rental car is the best way to see it. There is parking on the street in front of the house.
the Kailua Trolly can be used for getting around Kailua to Keauhou (6 miles south) along the ocean on "Ali'i Drive". The stop for the trolly is just a short 10 minute walk from the front door.
We do have a good public bus system that goes across the island north and south, for bus schedules look up The Hele-On Bus Hawaii County Mass Transit Agency.
There are also Tour buses that go around the island and to other destinations, look up Jack's Tours or Robert's Hawaii Tours. The pick up for the tours is usually within walking distance of the property.
Aside from from rental cars, there are moped and motorcycle rentals in Kailua.
We have lots of taxi's that also do tours, and to and from the airport, but there is also a Speedi Shuttle Bus to choose from. And occasionally the host is available for private tour...
Other Things to Note
The kona trolley runs daily from around 8 am to about 7 pm and will get you to the supermarkets both north and south as well as parks walking trails and the beach...
There is a local delivery service for small things you may have forgotten if you do not have a rental car... there is a convenience store a short walk away.
Sorry NO children and No PETS
Quiet hour after 10:PM...strict...windows are open and sound travels...
