Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Thomas and Simone are welcoming hosts and the condo is great, very modern, clean and comfortable. The lanai is lovely and the Sunset neighborhood is so named for the excellent views of the sun dropping into the sea. Their neighborhood is quite posh and has a sort of LA/Malibu type of feel. Less than 10 minute drive to the beach or to the main strip of town.

    Don't miss Da Poke Shack (we ate there three times) or Kahalu'u beach which is great for beginning snorkelers.

  • We stayed here for the first two nights of our trip to Hawaii. It was really great! The place was immaculate and well set up. The view is beautiful, the bed is comfortable the directions were super easy to follow and we had a great time! We are sorry we didn't get to meet Thomas and his family but we will definitely be staying in their studio again when we return!! Thank you :)

  • This is a very beautifull apartment, very neat, very modern with all the amenities you need. Our hosts, Simone and Thomas were most welcoming. It was the best apartment we rented during our 3 weeks trip to Hawaii.
    Now for the view: extraordinary. Waking up every morning and seeing the sea was so relaxing for us.
    I would not hesitate to recommend this place and if I we ever go back to the Big Island this is where we would stay.
    Thank you both for being part of our fabulous vacation

  • Thank you so much Simone and Thomas I had a wonderful time at your apartment! It is just as lovely as described, perfectly equipped and Simone and Thomas are great hosts. They gave me good recommendations for food, laundry etc. and drew my attention to the fact that my rental car was loosing oil and wouldn't even let me help to remove the oil! I highly recommend this place to everybody who wants to go to Big Island!

  • This studio is amazing! We stayed in 5 or 6 places across 3 island and this was the most modern and convenient place we stayed.

  • If you're looking for a peaceful and relaxing place to stay, away from the touristy craziness of Kailua-Kona, then this is it. Clean and quiet w a fantastic lanai and view, we really enjoyed this studio apt. Each morning and night we sat on the lanai and watched the whales play. Be sure to go to the Costco in the area to buy your fresh fish and fruit. Can't beat the prices and its a quick drive from the apartment. Thanks, Thomas for a great first airbnb experience! Mahalo!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Hale Kea last week. Set in a very nice neighborhood, it was quiet & relaxing. The kitchen is well - appointed and we were able to make many meals there. The unit has everything you would need to feel at home and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting out on the lanai and watching humpback whales breaching in the ocean. There were also many birds to watch in the yard. The location is a good starting point for many daily adventures - sight seeing, beaches & snorkeling opportunities are close by, walking trails, or a short hop gets you into downtown Kona. Thomas & Simone are excellent hosts. We loved staying here.

  • This apartment was stylish, well organized, squeaky clean, bright and luxurious. Very private and centrally located in a beautiful safe neighborhood safely nestled up on a hill. A true home away from home. We left inspired by the hosts professionalism and organizational skills in home keeping. The bath tub was large, towels plentiful, clean and fluffy, the kitchen well stocked with wine glasses, quality kitchenware and they even provide fresh coffee and a grinder. The bed was clean and cozy and the apartment was fresh and airy (two ceiling fans). They kindly leave pamphlets and informational books and brochures about the island and we were sure to visit several of the choice restaurants advertised in our room (Annie's - delicious organic burgers/fresh cocktails made with organic fresh squeezed juice & creative cuisine and Mi's Italian Bistro for Valentine's day which exceeded our expectations). Their style and care really shines through in this guest house. We will be sure to stay with them again if ever visiting the sunny side of the big island. Fantastic place at a great extremely fair rental price.
