I had a fantastic stay at Jean's lovely house in Weimea. The studio had everything in it what I needed. Weimea is the perfect place to stay, high up in the mountains, however, you are on the beach in 15 minutes. Jean is a very lovely host. Thank you for everything!!
Everything was exactly as described except better. The bed was the most comfortable ever, and the water pressure in the shower was perfect. The whole ohana was spic and span. There was complete privacy. The whole place was a bit magical and there were rainbows everywhere I looked, just exactly like in the photo. The kitchenette was thoughtfully stocked and more than adequate for simple meals, breakfast and snacks. The host couldn't be more thoughtful but at the same time a busy person with her own life.The separate entry offers a comfortable autonomy so that you could come and go without feeling you were disturbing anybody.
Our stay at Jeanie's was fantastic. She made us feel very welcome from the start and her apartment is superb. Everything and more than we expected was provided. The location is excellent for exploring the north part of the island.
The Guest house was lovely and pictures were accurate. I was arriving at night and Jean was not there as she had a previous engagement, but she gave very clear directions making it easy to find. The place was very clean and a wonderful bowl of fruit there to great me. Jean was very helpful in providing directions when I requested them. The Guest House is located near Waimea town and handy to go in for the Farmer's market..which I highly recommend. Wonderful stay!
Jeans house is a really nice place to stay. It is clean, very well equipped and we felt very comfortable. Jean is a wonderful host! She provided fresh fruits, bread and coffee beans. it was a pleasure meeting her and we would come back definitely.
The ohana was a cozy Waimea getaway. Perfect for an adventurous traveling couple. Although attached to the main house, there is plenty of privacy. There is a humble "kitchen" with and single gas camping burner and plenty of cooking supplies --even a coffee grinder, French presses and Kona coffee stocked and on hand.
Make sure you solidify check in and out times with the host before you book. She's a one woman show running the airbnb and providing a lovely experience all by herself.
Jean has created a very nice place with a perfectly equipped kitchenette. I immediately felt welcome there. She also provided some fresh fruit and water and was very kind and supportive with questions I had. I loved my stay there. Thank you very much, Jean!
