A fantastic apartment right on the coast. Comfortable, two fantastic beds and baths and a fab terrace. Everything you could need for a great vacation.
This condo was truly excellent -- great location, spacious, everything you need, and most importantly a very friendly and helpful host. Even though we could only stay for a few nights, Rebecca made us feel at home and provided tons of information about the condo and local area. Any inquiries we had were answered very promptly. Instructions for getting in and checking out of the apartment were very clear and we had no issues with it.
The condo itself was a good size for our family of 4 adults, and was clean and well decorated to make you look forward to coming back every night. Some days you might not want to leave and just sit and relax on the lanai with its great ocean views. The private parking spot makes it easy to go in and out as you please and it's only a 5 minute drive to the main Kailua area strip, which makes it a great base for any Kona related activities.
I would strongly recommend this place and would consider it as a top choice for myself next time I get a chance to come back to the beautiful Big Island!
The condo is great. Rebecca was extremely helpful and always available to answer all of our questions. She is a fantastic host. I'd definitely stay there again.
Rebecca gave excellent instructions for everything, from how to get to the condo from the airport, to good places to eat. The description was very accurate. The place was comfortable and well stocked with everything, The kitchen was especially well stocked. We were able to see the ocean easily, and hear it at night. that was a real treat. We were a little way from the really busy traffic areas, there were alt of runners and bikers, there was plenty of room for that. I rented a bike and enjoyed daily rides. The pool was spectacular, warm and clean. I would definitely stay there again.
Rebecca could not have been a better host. This was our first-ever use of Airbnb, so I was pretty unfamiliar with the protocols, but she was very patient in explaining them to me. She provided abundant information about how to take care of her lovely condo, and we could not have been more pleased with its amenities, location, and other features. It proved to be the perfect home base for our explorations of the west side of the Big Island, and I would heartily recommend both the facility and the host to anyone seeking a great place to stay in the Kona area.
Rebecca was a great host.
Always replied very quickly and friendly on requests.
The apt. was in very clean shape. The wonderful pictures tell the truth.
Will come again!
Words can't describe how perfect Rebecca's apartment was for our stay in Kona. The view from the lanai is amazing and the sunsets are beautiful! We immediately fely at home with everything we could possibly need available in the apartment or in close proximity - Banyan Mart a very short walk and the trolley easily accessible. We found beautiful beaches close by where we were often the only people there. We were sad to leave Rebecca's apartment but we know we will definitely be back!! Thank you Rebecca!!
About the Host, Rebecca
Our family is a long time resident of Colorado. We recently purchased a vacation rental property at the Royal Kahili in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. The Big Island drew us with the abundance of interesting things to do there. We hope to make it our retirement home someday.
