Description

The space

Charming one bedroom condo with comfortable king bed, tile floors, fans and air conditioning, well-appointed kitchen, cable TV, DVD player, wifi, hair-dryer, ironing facilities, washer/dryer, shower and tub. Spacious lanai with a view of tropical gardens, waterfall and fountain, the garden swimming-pool and the ocean. Create a lovely airflow by opening the lanai door and front door and latching the screen door for security. The saltwater pool overlooking the ocean is large and deep, great for work-out swims. Sunbathe or relax on the palm-fringed sand beach, perfect for dolphin and whale watching. The complex has an elevator, free off-street parking, library, and a coin-op laundry, in case you need to wash anything not suitable for my washer/dryer.

Guest access

This is a self-catering condo and you will have access to all the public areas of the complex. Pool hours are 9am to 9pm. You will receive instructions on check-in shortly before your arrival date. Check-in time is 4pm, though this can be changed on request if the unit is ready for occupancy. If you need a later check-out time, just ask as this can often be arranged.

Interaction with guests

I may or may not be on the island during your stay. Please let me know by email or phone if you have questions or if there are any problems, between the hours of 7:30am and 9:30pm Hawaii time.

The neighborhood

This condo is a wonderful base for exploring the Big Island. Check out the great snorkeling at Kahaluu Beach Park just south of the complex on Alii Drive, the island's best white sand beaches north of Kona, the black sand beaches on the East side of the island and the green sand beach near South Point, the southern tip of the United States. I can give you tips on where to swim with turtles and manta rays. After a trip to the volcano or a hike through the jungle on the windward side of the island, this is a wonderful place to return to, barbecue and relax by the ocean in the balmy Kona evening air.

Getting around

Best to rent a car at the airport for the 10 mile drive to the condo and for exploring the island. There is a shuttle that runs along Alii Drive to and from Kailua-Kona. It's about a 20 minute walk, pleasant in the early morning or evening, hot during the day, but with a few shady oceanfront rest areas. There's free parking behind Coconut Village Shopping Center, and Costco has the best gas and food prices on the island.

Other things to note

Please note that prices change according to high and low seasons. There is a 4 night minimum stay at all times of the year except during Ironman when I require a 10-night minimum stay. Price includes 13.25% in transient accommodation and general excise taxes which I'm obliged to collect on behalf of the state of Hawaii. Hawaii Business # , Makai Retreat LLC. The complex has a no pet, no smoking policy which is strictly enforced.

Our stay in Kona was great! The location of Jane's condo was good the property grounds were beautiful. We enjoyed the two pools and the friendliness of the other residents. Jane was very responsive to our inquiries during our time there . The highlight of our stay on the Big Island was our  private tour of Volcano National Park with Haley of Akamai Tours...outstanding adventure  and highly recommended! Richard and Nancy

Jane has a wonderful rental perfect for a couple. It's comfortable and the location is outstanding. Beautiful gardens and friendly people. We loved the salt water pool next to the crashing waves. We will be returning.

The host canceled this reservation 72 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Jane User Profile
Response from Jane:
This was entirely my mistake. I accepted Volker's reservation request before advising him that our oceanfront pool will be closed for maintenance in May. He asked me to cancel the reservation for him since they were looking forward to using that pool.

We believed the salt water pool and surrounding area is a real gem and should be highlighted more when promoting this building. We enjoyed whales while relaxing down by the water many times. The folks that gather each afternoon are a real friendly group. Maholo!

Response from Jane:

The pictures of the condo adequately reflect the actual location. The highlights were: - fantastic wave watching - large common space with enough tables for a big group - covered common space for reading. - Adequate parking. - Insuite washer and dryer - very quiet building I went with a large group and everyone was very happy with the complex. Jane was excellent she kept in touch about any changes e.g. (beyond her control but) the saltwater pool was closed for a couple days because of large waves she let me know right away.

Response from Jane:
Thank you Shirley. So glad you enjoyed the Casa and I'm sorry about the pool closure.

Originally from England, I have always enjoyed traveling and meeting people from all over the world. I chose Hawaii for the location of my airbnb as it's a wonderful place to live and share with others.
