About this listing

Just a few blocks from the ocean and beach parks. Separate apartment on the lower level of our personal home. Discounts for stays of longer than 6 nights, and monthly discounts. The price shown in the reservation request should reflect the discount when applicable. 13.5% Hawaii tax collected on arrival. Cleaning fee is waived if left clean.

The space

This conveniently located, clean, peaceful self-catering apartment is on the lower level of our house. It is just a few blocks from world class snorkeling, swimming, surfing and boogie boarding in the heart of the White Sands Beach area off of Ali`i Drive.

The ground floor separate apartment with private entrance and designated off-street parking consists of a bedroom with comfortable queen sized bed, living area with full and twin size (child size) futon, full eat in kitchen, spacious bathroom (shower but no tub) tropical decor and an outdoor deck for relaxing. There are ceiling fans in each room, but no AC. We find it comfortable most of the year, but you may not be use to tropical temperatures and humidity. Please consider this when selecting a place to stay. We are located on a quiet cul-de-sac, but there is some road noise from Alii Dr and the sound of the waves during high surf.

We love the Big Island and look forward to sharing our knowledge with you.

Quiet Hours 8pm-6am. Even though we are near the beach, this is a quiet residential neighborhood of small lots and close neighbors so we ask our guests to keep the noise down particularly after 8pm to 6am. This apartment is not a good fit for those who like to party or have lots of friends visit. We are family friendly, but our home is not "child-proofed", and children need to be supervised.

No Smoking inside or outside the unit-

$200 Security/Cleaning deposit. This will be refunded if you leave the apartment clean and as you found it. See the house manual on arrival for specifics.

There will be an additional charge of 13.5% for Hawaii Transient Accommodation Tax collected at arrival via cash or check USD.

We just wrapped up our trip to Liz and Robert's place and had a wonderful time! Everything you need is here. The bed is super comfy. The kitchen is very well equipped. The lanai was used daily for our breakfast and also a glass of wine in the evening. The place is kept very clean. Lots of gear provided to use ... chairs, boogie boards etc. This airbnb is very nicely located and allows to you get to many places both north and south quickly. We will definitely stay here again if we return to the Big Island and it is available.

Liz and Robert's apartment was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The location was great as we were within minutes from White Sands beach (where once in the water, we immediately saw sea turtles) and also downtown. Liz and Robert were on vacation during our stay, but they had a friend housesitting for them who was very kind to us and took the time to give us great travel information and tips about the island. We felt very safe and relaxed there and would definitely return in the future. Mahalo Liz and Robert!

Liz and Robert's place was absolutely perfect for us. Great location,close to the beach and lots of good spots to eat. Both Liz and Robert were super friendly and easy to communicate with, and gave us great suggestions for things to do during our stay in Kona and Hilo. The space was much larger than we expected, very clean, and has a lovely patio we enjoyed very much. thank you for a wonderful stay!

It was great time. The location is short walk to the beautiful sandy beach which is important: we did not have to look for a parking. To the other beach is about 30 min walk or 5 min drive it is great snorkelling there. It is main floor apparent- it was 4 people: one couple used master bedroom and we ( second couple ) used futon in a smaller room- we both are tall and big and this futon was totally fine and comfortable. Fully equipped kitchen and small barbecue on your patio is enough if you want to cook. Snorkelling equipment is in the good shape. There is beach umbrella, beach chairs and surfing boards- everything new and clean. Quiet at night. Hosts were helpful and resourceful, helped us in planning our trip.

This was a perfect spot for doing all the Big Island had to offer. Liz and Robert have thought of everything. The pictures don't do the space justice, it is really nice and spacious. The house dog is adorable!

Our stay at Liz and Robert's place was great. The unit is in excellent condition, it was close to a beach that we could walk to and was easy to get closer to town for restaurants and shops. Liz and Robert were both great!

Blood on the bed; too many bugs at the kitchen ( ants and other harmfull insects) The house is as showed in the photos but they are quite complicated in terms of "noise", parking, cleaning etc. They think its a bunker for army. The fans cant handle that heat They will try to take your money or threaten you about the deposit if something is not as they “expected” ( remember they think its a military stay) The host try to blackmail me with extra charges and at the end they lost the resolution but they complicated my vacations with their imaginary complains. Please visitors; there are many great places with people that really love to host instead of people that will try to take advantage. For fortune, KARMA put them where they belong.

Response from Liz And Robert:
We are sadden to see Edgar's review, as he did not let us know about any concerns during his stay and actually told us how lovely our home was when he departed. His issues all came up after we asked him to pay a small cleaning fee after he departed. We offer ALL our guests the opportunity to have the cleaning fee waived if they tidy up a bit before check out. The items are clearly noted in the listing, house rules, welcome letter and house handbook, such as take out your trash and do your dishes. Edgar did NONE of the requested check out items. Edgar left the unit strewn with trash, dirty dishes, food particulate (this does draw insects to the apartment)., soiled towels and sheets. When we asked Edgar to pay the small cleaning fee as noted, he was quite hostile and refused. We presented photos of the the mess to Airbnb and they did pay our cleaning fee. I also personally cleaned, vacuumed and mopped the apartment just before Edgar's arrival, all the linens were freshly laundered, and at that time and there were no insects present. We do ask future guests to please review our listing information and house rules. We want you to enjoy your vacation and we want our offering to be a good match for you. This is our home, not a hotel, and we do ask guests to tidy up before check out, observe evening quiet hours and be respectful with the spirit of Aloha.

I have been in the travel business most of my life and currently own Anita Travel, Inc. I love almost everything about Hawaii and I have vacationed here for many years. Several years ago, my husband and I decided to come here full time. We both love nature and watersports, so we can share our "local" knowledge of the area and help make your vacation special.
