The Space

A comfortable and simple clean bedroom in in Kailua Town. Located within walking distance to downtown - shops, restaurants, harbor and beach makes it very convenient.
Close to public library and open market too. Third floor apartment with view of the ocean in a vegetarian household. If you're not vegetarian no worry everyone is welcome it's just a personal preference. You are free to use the fully equipped kitchen just keep it lacto-vege. No smoking and drugs. Free Internet WIFI access.
Guest and on street parking available. Close to Hele-on bus stop, and all shopping centers in Kona. Public transportation via the Hele-on bus is quite limited but there are private shuttle services within Kailua, last I checked the town shuttle was $2. If you want to go exploring outside of town you will probably want a rental car or make other arrangements.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • i have not met vidal but dennis was a most gracious and gentle host i felt right at home most of the time. he picked me up and dropped me at the airport at my request for a reasonable fee. not many hosts will do that even for a fee. thank you dennis for everything. i even learned to eat more vegetables and less meat since i got home.

  • Wow - Dennis and Vidal were absolutely delightful. Their great spacious room allowed me the space I needed while I felt very welcomed and at home in the shared spaces. Dennis and Vidal are kind and generous and inclusive. I was invited to join them for meals and even to shared events with friends. I have fond memories of laughing and having a great time. The location is brilliant and indeed minutes from downtown. I rented a moped which made the location so easy and accessible. Vidal and Dennis were gracious hosts and I highly recommend this spot.

  • I had a wonderful time staying with Dennis and Vidal. I had never been to Hawaii and decided that I was going to just take a couple of suit cases and make the move. Dennis and Vidal's place seemed like the perfect place to start off because it was so centrally located. They also had a lot of great reviews. So I decided to stay there for a month and check out the area. Through my good fortune, and Dennis and Vidal's constant positive encouragement, I was able to find a permanent place to stay, buy a used car, and find a job all within a month!
    They were perfect hosts and now I see them more as friends. They made some delicious meals and took me around the area a bit. I got some good advice on island living and we had many great conversations and movie nights.
    I can't say enough good things about these guys. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to meet them and I feel fortunate that I had such a positive experience with some great people on the Big Island!

  • What a wonderful place to stay. The space was as advertised, a good value for the price, etc. However, the real draw is the hosts, who probably ended up as my favourite part of my stay in Kona. They are nice guys who provided a relaxing atmosphere, great conversation, and the occasional delicious meal. I can't recommend Dennis and Vidal enough.

  • I enjoyed staying at Vidal and Dennis' place for five days, however, Vidal was away for a vacation and Dennis was the only host when I was there.
    Dennis was helpful and cooperative, and most of all, he was really entertaining and easy going, so we had a very good time talking, eating and cooking together one day!
    The vegetarian dish Dennis cooks is good, too!

    The location is also something remarkable!
    Only 5 minutes walk and you're right in the heart of Kailua Kona!
    I strongly recommend you to think about their place if you're looking forward to have a good time in Kailua Kona!

    February 2012
  • Vidal and Dennis made me feel very welcome, treating me like a family member and feeding me delicious meals.
    The room and bathroom are very confortable and clean and the apartment is bright, airy, and located within walking distance of the waterfront, dining and shops.
    Vidal and Dennis are the best hosts anyone could wish for and I would like to thank them dearly for their heart-warming hospitality and true friendliness!
