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.

Absolutely beautiful apartment in the perfect location!
This apartment is outstanding--clean, modern, and comfortable. It was stocked with everything we needed. The beach chairs, towels, etc. were much appreciated. The lanai is wonderful, the patio chairs are comfortable, and I was surprised how hard it was to leave!
It is right in the middle of the main strip and close to lots of restaurants and shopping.
Joanna was accommodating to our needs and responsive to emails.
It's true - you cannot beat this location for a Kona experience. You step right out of the lobby and your plopped into the action that Kona has to offer. We didn't drive our car half of the stay because beaches, restaurants, are walking distance. My 9 year old loved falling asleep to the crashing waves on the sofa bed. My husband loved swimming at the Kona pier Tri start as well as we enjoyed our dawn and dusk runs on Alii. JoJo, our host was professional, efficient in the whole check in/out process, intuitive about our interests and offered many great suggestions. I appreciated her attention to detail, thinking of every household item and knick knack so you didn't have to go the store. By far my favorite luxury was the glass sliding door to the lanai that took up the entire wall. Added to the great open air layout. As an Airbnb host myself, I took copious notes so that I may offer my guests a top experience as she did.
This place is great: it's exactly as described - extremely well made-up, nicely stocked - in the kitchen, and toys-to-play-with-on-the-beach department. The lanai and living room couch both have a great view of the surf, just like the pictures show. The building is well-maintained, and felt very secure, but you can just step downstairs to experience Kona. The assigned parking place is a huge advantage, and the washer/dryer are big enough for all the beach towels you use!
Joanna couldn't have been nicer - she's been very responsive, both before my arrival and during my trip. I lost my keys while I was here, and she went out of her way to help me out, and arranged a new set with the building manager within a couple of hours. I was impressed, and also grateful!
This unit is extremely comfortable, very well stocked, and a great home base from which to experience the island. I'll be back!
5 stars for our stay. First off, Joanna is awesome and very easy to communicate with. Second, the place itself is great. Nicely decorated and very comfortable. All the amenities are perfect and I really appreciated having access to the boogie-boards, fins, towels, and beach bags. Everyone we met in the building is very nice and the location is great. The washer and dryer were perfect as well.
Thanks for a great stay!

such a refreshing treat after yoga. 2 min walk from our place.
Fun atmosphere and great food. It is worth a 5 min trip in the car to dine here
just the quaintest little town to stop and enjoy a cup of coffee.
You must try a night dive with the Manta's! It is brilliant. Snorkel trips are always great for the kids too
If you are looking for one of a kind or unique outfits for a lady, it is a great source for beachie chic clothing or even a dress for a night on the town Kona style.
