Joanna was great through the whole process! She kept in constant contact with us to make sure that we had everything that we needed. The apartment was fully stocked with all of the necessary items and beach items! She left us a great guide to local restaurants, shops, and places to see. We also loved reading the journal that all the guest get to write in. It gave us great insight for places to visit and must-do activities! The location of the apartment was ideal for us. Shopping and eating were just an elevator ride away! We enjoyed staying right in the heart of Kailua-Kona! Thank you for providing us with such a great experience!
We had a fantastic stay at Joanne's beautiful renovated condo. As everyone said, it is very conveniently located and has a spacious living room, well-stocked kitchen, and 2-bathrooms! Coming from a fog-thick San Francisco, we were nervous about not having AC and the first night was particularly humid. But we quickly adjusted and learned a trick from a neighbor: open the entrance door, which brought nice breeze from a hill side. Although the condo is situated right on the downtown Kailua Kona, it was surprisingly quiet and felt very private. The pool was very clean too. Joanne was very helpful, checking in with us a few times during our stay. She was able to make an arrangement for us to pick up a few things we forgot in her unit. All in all, it was a pleasant stay and we will sure to be back!
Beautiful place right in the center of Kona! We had so much fun! And Joanna has everything nicely planned out for check in and check out. We loved our stay here!
I'll try and keep this short and sweet. I am from England and my wife is from Portland, Oregon and this was the first time we have ever used Airbnb.
First of all, this was a last minute trip, I messaged Joanna the night before we arrived in Kona and Joanna was unbelievably helpful, very prompt at replying, easy to work with and a great communicator.
The condo was amazing, wayyyyy better than it looks on the photos, if it was a hotel it would be 5* no doubts!!! Very spacious, superbly decorated, clean and full of beach gear for you to use so you don't have to buy your own so that will save you a few pennies. The condo is probably in the best location on the island, bars / restaurants / shops are 1 minute away and there is a pool & sea view from the balcony.
We were there for just 4 nights, went to a few amazing beaches, the volcano, the black and green sand beaches, snorkelled with massive sea turtles and also did a night snorkel with manta rays. Those are a few things that are a must when you are on the island.
Seriously i couldn't recommend the condo, the host and the location any more, you should definitely book Joanna's place.

Joanna was an awesome host. She reached out multiple times for check-in procedures and offered great recommendation prior to our trip. Her home was exactly the same way as it was shown in her listing. Location can't be more perfect - It was in the main strip of Kona. Many restaurants, bars, and cafes were within walking distance. A perfect home base spot if you're staying on the west side of the island, specifically in Kona. We can't wait to go back and stay here again.
Beautiful modern spacious home and very comfortable in a great neighborhood. Great walkable neighborhood with delicious restaurants.
Joanna's place was wonderful! We'd forgotten that there was no AC and were a little nervous about that when we first arrived. But it is NOT a problem! There are plenty of quiet fans, and the ceiling fans bring in lots of cool air from the deck. The place is so close to town, but very quiet and private. The pictures don't show how large the living room space is, its huge. All her furnishings are beautiful; I wish this was my house :)
Thanks Joanna, great tips in the binder, they were very helpful regarding places to check out in town.
We would stay here again and/or recommend to others. Thanks again.
