Kevin is very kind, and the place is very convenient, neighborhood is quiet and nice, near supermarket and sea. It's worth to be there again.
Thanks, Kevin, for sharing your house with us. We enjoyed our time there. Mahalo!
Hello Kevin. Thanks again for having us at your place. Fruit and cake was a very kind ans tasty welcome present. We were very comfortable, and would have appreciate the access you give to the lanai if weather had been warmer. We hope to visit again in the future!
Description of place is accurate. Clean and bed comfortable. Located at the back of the house but share a patio with front apartment. We did not cook there, but does have facilities outside. Arrival fruit, banana bread and coffee for first breakfast was very nice. only down side is there is no sound proofing so noise from up stairs and next door is heard (vacuuming and snoring) nothing that earplugs couldn't cope with.
This private room is in a quiet, family neighborhood just a few miles from central and downtown Kona. You have your own parking space that is only for you, so no need to battle for a spot anywhere. Private shower and bathroom were very nice, and I made use of the coffee machine, plates+silver and microwave.
Here's the best thing about the property: the bed is very comfortable. I've stayed in quite a few airbnbs, and this bed is the best. It actually felt like a b&b, and not just someone's spare room with all their personal items laying around. Another plus is the overhead fan and the screen door that lets in the cool air at night. I felt very safe. Kevin also leaves snorkel gear for your use free of charge, and they fit me just fine. A big save on money, considering what some places in Kona charge tourists!
Tip: arrive in daylight and drive slowly through the neighborhood. Lots of kids, dogs, and families walk the area.
I had an excellent esperience staying at Kona Cottage. Kevin was an excellent host who responded very promptly to any enquiries I had, both before and during my stay. He was very accomodating to me. The accomodation was a great fit for me. I cooked up a mean little dinner one evening at the outdoor ktchen. As long as you have a car, you will be very satisfied.
It was an all around awesome trip! Kevin welcomed us with an aloha spirt, providing us with delicious banana bread, fresh fruit and lots of helpful information on where to eat or what beaches to visit.
The neighborhood has a good local vibe, Kevin's place is really quiet and private. But also, very close to town. Felt very at home the entire time.
We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return soon. Thanks Kevin!
