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.

I agree with all the other reviews here. Denis and Vidal are great hosts and generally lovely people. Their apartment was nice and as described. They made me feel welcome in their home and included me in dinners when I was there. They even made vegan options for me if something contained dairy and they also offered me breakfast. The location is great for walking into town, shops etc. They also answered my questions about things to do on the island. This was my first airbnb experience and I enjoyed it a lot. Stay with them, you won't regret it.
I don't even know how to write enough superlatives that would cover the care, good vibes, and great time that I had staying with this guys. As soon as I arrived they considered me as family and now when I left I still keep them as family :)
Great location, nice apartment, excellent hosts, warmly recommend!
Denis and Vidal are great people! I highly recommend their place, clean, quiet neighbourhood, with a fan in the room and very knowledgeable and helpful hosts!
I had a great time. If I come back to Kona I will stay there again.
Denis war eine toller und sehr netter Gastgeber. Die Wohnung ist sehr gepflegt und das Gästezimmer gemütlich. Toll dass ich sogar ein eigenes Badezimmer hatte. Der Blick vom Balkon ist klasse und lädt zum Verweilen ein.
Nach meiner Ankunft gab es direkt was leckeres zu Essen und auch für das Frühstück wurde gesorgt.
Noch einmal vielen Dank für alles, ich komme gerne wieder.
This is a great place to stay and Denis was a wonderful host. The apartment itself is located within walking distance of the 'night life' of Kona. This includes cafes, restaurants, live music places and gift shops.
It's very clean and has a great view of the ocean. Denis was a good a host as he could have been. One day we went out snorkeling and he offered us his equipment so we didn't have to purchase our own.
The apartment is filled with lovely pieces of art work and has a very warming feel to it.
I would highly recommend staying here if you intend on spending some time on the west coast of the island.
Denis is an excellent host. From start to finish he made my stay both comfortable and enjoyable. He was also really friendly and generous. In fact, he made dinner for us on two occasions and offered a light breakfast for each morning as well (fruit, toast, coffee etc). The room was comfortable and clean and there was a private bathroom for me as well which was great. The place is very centrally located to everything you'll need while staying in Kona, which is perfect for travellers without a car as many of the other listings in the area are farther out and public transit in the area is spotty. I highly recommend visitors to the area stay with Denis!
Denis was very welcoming and polite . Had a wonderful time using their space.
