About This Listing
Enjoy this beautiful, spacious ocean view bedroom with its own master bath, large deep tub, and separate walk in shower. Less than 10 minutes from the airport, 3 mi. up the mountain, it is perfectly situated between the best beaches to the north and south of the gold coast of Kona. The elevation is perfect for escaping the heat of downtown and cooling off after a day at the beach. There is plenty of light, and breezes flow through from large sliding glass doors that open out to an expansive ocean view lanai, with garden view and your private table and chairs for that morning cup of Kona coffee. You can relax or meditate with the sun setting over the ocean. You can also enjoy dining on the shared portion of the lanai, also with a sweeping ocean view. There's a porch swing and a view of the tropical garden as well. You will share your space with me, the owner. I have my own private master bedroom and bath on the opposite side of the house, separated by a big living room, double door entry, and a large, convenient kitchen with all that you might need to prepare meals. There is a gas stove and oven, large double door refrigerator with ice maker and water dispenser in the door. The double sink has a 4 stage reverse osmosis water filter. If you're eco conscious, you can join in the household composting process, helping to make soil for the garden, and cook with the herbs grown there.
I have lived on the island for 24 years and have chosen the location because of the views, and the elevation which is perfect for gardening and my one coffee tree. There are limes almost year round, and deliscious tangelos and oranges in season. It is also perfectly located mid way between the best beaches and attractions. My favorite beach is just 10 minutes away. Kailua-Kona is just 15 minutes from the house and shopping and our Costco (cheapest gas) even closer. I will be your personal informational guide throughout your stay, helping you to feel the Heart of Hawaii throughout your adventures.
Absolutely No Smoking, drugs or parties.
We stayed the night at Elizabeth's residence because we wanted somewhere close by the airport. She took great care of us and put together a breakfast for us the next morning knowing that we were rushing to the airport. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. It was a very homey experience.
Magnifique suite avec vue sur l'océan, à 2 pas de l'aéroport.
Star est charmante, nous avons passé un merveilleux moment avec elle (et son petit chien), elle a pensé à plein de détails pour nous faciliter la vie.
Je recommande vivement !!!
Lovely suite with a great view on the ocean ; best for sunset.
Star is so kind, she welcomed us and helped us as much as she could, thinking at all little details.
We were so happy meeting her during our hawaiian trip.
I strongly recommend!!!
My husband and I needed a place to stay overnight in Kona before returning to the mainland and Star's room was the perfect choice. Located in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood just eight minutes from the airport, Star has a lovely home on the hillside above the airport. The master suite is clean, bright, and comfortable...just as pictured...with an expansive ocean view and lanai from which to enjoy your morning coffee. Our only regret was not meeting Star who was away on a trip of her own but her neighbor Keely did a wonderful job welcoming us and making herself available should we need anything. We recommend this accommodation without hesitation. Thank you Star and Keely for making our last night on the island a pleasant one...and by the way, JoJo is such a sweetie
A spacious and comfortable room in a wonderful house. It was exactly the same as the pictures shown. The broad ocean view and sun set view from the lanai were fantastic. The host, Star, was friendly and nice talking with. She kept offering me all kind of food. Have no hesitation to recommend this place.
Awesome location near downtown Kona. Spacious room, awesome bath with huge tub and 2 sinks. Nice south facing deck.
Elizabeth was super nice and helpful.
Star is just such a nice and great person, we had a very nice welcome and felt home right away. She gave us great tips on what to do and even let us lend boogieboards. The house and the room are both very impressive and perfectly clean. I can just say that we will be staying longer next time.
Thank you, Star, for an absolutely fantastic stay! You are an incredibly gracious and welcoming host, and we loved getting to know you a bit. Your house, room, and location are beautiful. Spotless, comfortable, quiet, and an amazing view of the ocean. We really wish we had planned to stay with you longer -- we'll definitely be back for a longer visit the next time!
