The room was amazing! Very cosy, clean, comfortable, and the mosaic bathroom was awesome! The outdoor kitchen was well equiped and it was fun to cook on it. Kevin was very nice and friendly and gave lots of tips where to go. I would definitely stay there again.
Kevin is a very nice host and easy to communicate with. The place is close to Kona and the harbor which was most important for us as we needed to be up early to get on our dive boat. The accommodation is clean and roomy, the bed was very comfy. Only downside is that the house has very thin walls, the room is under the kitchen and beside the garage and you can hear everything - so earplugs are recommended.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed staying at Kevin's place a lot! It's super clean and tidy. The community is nice and quite. The bed is so comfortable. We had so great sleeps during the stay. Kevin is a very responsible and nice host. He greeted us on our first day of arrival and showed us the place. He also prepared fresh fruits and banana bread for us. Oh man! The banana bread is the best!!! He has everything we need in the house such as coffee, utensils, snorkeling gears, beach chairs and so on. We really love the place and will definitely come back next time.
Thank you, Kevin!
100% recommended. If every airbnb host was like Kevin, it would be awesome. Thank you for hosting us.
We enjoyed our stay overall. Thank you for opening up your home to us. Banana bread was awesome! Quiet neighborhood.
Kevin was very welcoming. He stayed up late to make sure we got in from the airport okay. He was always available for questions and even offered up some local snorkeling spots to check out.
The delicious banana bread was a delight to wake up to our first morning on the Big Island. We're sure it's the best we've ever had.
The suite was very comfortable, clean and quiet. Only about a 5 minute drive to downtown.
We would definitely stay again and recommend it to friends.
Kevin- Sorry we missed you when we left, thanks for everything!
