My stay with Denis and Vidal went way beyond my expectations! I honestly felt as though I was reuniting with old friends, rather than staying with two people that had until now been strangers.
The entire apartment shows an appreciation for beauty, and provides a warm and calming atmosphere. The walls are adorned with Denis's paintings, with employ a bright color palette, and radiate joy and a love of nature. The balcony allows you to take in the sunshine and breezes of Kailua-Kona, and is frequented by adorable gold dust day geckos, attracted by the jam left out by my hosts.
My room was spotless, and the bed was comfortable. The guest bathroom was very clean, and a variety of toiletries were provided.
One of the highlights of my stay was Denis's cooking. I myself am a carnivore, but am happy to eat a well-prepared vegetarian meal. Denis used only fresh ingredients, mostly local, and employed flavors inspired by his many trips to India. Be sure to ask for his quinoa breakfast porridge which, in addition to being delicious, helped power me through several hours of hiking later that day! I was always invited to breakfast and dinner, even if my hosts were having friends over.
Denis and Vidal are also engaging conversationalists, and I learned a lot about the area and its history from them. They were always happy to give recommendations, and then eager to hear about my activities after the fact.
I can only hope that they will still have an Airbnb listing on my next trip to Kailua-Kona!
Der 5 tätige Aufenthalt bei den beiden war das Highlight auf Big Island. Die zwei haben einen sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit aufgenommen. Das Zimmer war sauber und sie haben mich sogar selbstverständlich zum selbst gekochten Abendessen eingeladen.
Sehr zu empfehlen.
I feel I am so lucky to meet Denis and Vidal at Kona. They are the most wonderful hosts I have ever met. They make me feel at home during the stay, even better than my home... They made me breakfast, help me to find the tour and give me lovely flower:) I also learn a lot from them. After one week I feel I become a better person and full of positive energy!! I really hope my English is not this bad so I can find better words to describe my experience here. I think Denis and Vidal become one of the reasons make me come back to big island later!!! Btw, the room is clean and comfortable. Location is so great. Actually I am kind of picky, but there is nothing to complain about their place. Trust me!!! Everything is perfect.
Miss u guys and hope see u soon:)
I came as a stranger and I leave as a friend!
Vidal and Denis gave me a warm welcome, explained everything in a friendly way and were super gracious. We had good talks and good laughs too. I always had fresh flowers in my room and bathroom, only that made me more than welcome. The flat is near Alli'i Drive and the shops there and grocery stores are easily to reach by foot. Friendly neighbours, safe environment even at night. The room is nice and private. Denis paintings in it are beautiful. I realy felt at home and will miss my Hawaiian hosts a lot. MAHALO Denis and Vidal.
Amazing! Although the location could not be better, ocean view! The hosts make this place. Their generosity with information, time, and food as they kindly offered me to join for their great
Vegetarian dinners. I would recommend them and their place highly.
Denis and Vidal are excellent host, I felt like in my own home, and for me it was very important. The room is very cozy, complety furnished, with everything that you need, even your own bathroom. Every morning I enjoyed a delicuous breakfast make of papaya, cofee and bread, really nice¡¡¡. Moreover, they invited me to have dinner with them, watch a film or a cup of tea and a interesting talking. From my experience, this place is 100% recomendable.
Denis and Vidal are wonderful hosts; they treated me like an old friend and even invited me to dine with them (dinner was delicious, by the way). The room, and bathroom, are private and comfortable; the location is great, just a short walk down to Kailua-Kona town; and as a bonus there is a view of the ocean from the lanai, where you can watch the sunset. I will definitely stay with them again.
Easy going, living with partner, enjoying and sharing life on the Big Island of Hawaii
We are vegetarians but not vegans. Non smokers ...nothing against smokers or carnivores!!! Just a personal choice.
