Interaction with Guests
We live and work in Kona, and from our home office, relaxing in the evenings. Most guests are out and about enjoying our island after breakfast and are home in the evening to relax and sleep.
Nice and quiet neighborhood, guests have some of their best sleep here!
A rental car is recommended, we have extra parking at bottom of driveway.
We ask that you give us the same courtesy we give you! Honesty, respect for personal possessions, friendly, happy nature and quiet sleeping hours. Coffee can be ready as early as 7am-8:30am or special needs or requests may be handled on an individual basis. AND, have fun in Hawaii, enjoy our beautiful island!
I stayed at Sheryl and Joey's during the Ironman World Championship week, which is generally the craziest time of year in Kona. The fact that they were accommodating of this stressed out athlete, all her gear, and her husband (who arrived later)--and beyond that were enthusiastic volunteers for the race--goes to show what great hosts they are, and how they care for their community. Whenever I was at the house it was enjoyable to catch up with them and I learned something about the local scene every time. It was easy to communicate with Sheryl for the duration of our stay, even when everyone was out and about. Staying with them truly felt like having a home away from home, and I only wish we had had more time to relax and enjoy the view from the house, and all that the Island has to offer also. Thanks for making us feel so welcome!
Sheryl and Joey were fabulous hosts! So down to earth and funloving gentle souls =) Sheryl was so kind as to wait up late for us since we were driving in from Mauna Kea/Hilo the night we arrived. I'd certainly recommend this place to anyone! Gorgeous views from the lanaii and wonderful breakfast. You made us feel at home =) Mahalo!
About the Host, Sheryl & Joey
After 15 years of "deciding" whether to move to the Big Island or not, we finally did it June 2012 and it's like being home. My husband is local Portuguese/Spanish and I am originally from the Midwest, relocated to CA for past 34 years, blessed to have a job I can travel to and fro! Love swimming and local music, always looking for that next Happy Hour to socialize with friends.
