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 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 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.

Very nice apartment
Good location,Liz and Robert was helpful
Good they have beach and snorkel equipment
We just came home from a 9-night stay on the Big Island at Liz and Robert's ohana in Kona. The apartment was nicely appointed, clean, comfortable, and quiet. It's on a cul-de-sac in a lovely residential area, so it was quiet and safe, but it was also very close to the ocean and all the action on Ali'i drive. It's within walking distance of White Sands/Magic beach and just a short drive to Ka'ha Lu'u beach park for good snorkeling. We don't like to deal with a lot of people at the big resorts and we like to explore on our own, so after going to a different beach everyday, it was nice to come back to the peace and comfort of the apartment. Liz and Robert were super nice and available to answer any questions and give advice. We packed light so when I needed to do a load of laundry, Liz readily gave me access to the washer/dryer. We really appreciated that, and the huge, tile shower with the awesome shower head was a real treat after a day in the sun, sand, and salt water. The location is really unique because we felt close enough to the shops, markets, and restaurants of Kona and the marina of Keauhou but tucked in a quiet, residential neighborhood. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay with all the comforts of home, that's reasonably priced, where you can eat in (full kitchen) or go out to one of the many restaurants, this is an excellent choice. If we make it back there someday, we'll stay here again. We had a wonderful vacation.
All 3 of us had a great stay at Liz's place. We really appreciated how fast Liz answered all our questions prior to finalizing the booking. When we arrived we were impressed by the cleanliness of the apartment and how close it was to the beach. Highly recommend this place.
Beautiful place. Great location. Super nice hosts. Yay!
Liz's place is BEAUTIFUL! Our downstairs apartment was very fresh and clean, had 2 separate bedrooms, bath, full kitchen and even an outside patio. We felt very comfortable there.
Nice, out of the way apt.. but close enough to down town. It was advertised as quiet & it was (except for New Years Eve, but it was after all New Years Eve in Hawaii so the fireworks were expected). The kitchen was fully furnished if I had ever felt like cooking. There were also boogie boards, beach mats, & scuba gear for us to use. My two grandchildren loved the cat & dog that belong to Liz. I felt like this was a safe, restful place to stay & would recommend Honu Ohana
Absolutely love this place! Liz and Robert are excellent hosts and the unit provides all amenities need to make you feel comfortable. The two of us stayed there 8 nights with our two adult sized children and the unit was VERY comfortable. The location is great and downtown Kona is a close drive. There wasn't one bad thing we could say about the accommodations, in fact they way exceeded our expectations, especially for the reasonable rate!
The only disappointment we had is that we did not have the chance to get to know Liz and Robert better.
When we return to Kona, we definitely know where we will be staying!

Staying in this home was extremely enjoyable. It's a two-story house in a quiet neighborhood with the owners living upstairs, so it's not suitable for those looking for a party (no problem for us). It is quite spacious; the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom are all very large and comfortably furnished. The place was totally clean. Amenities (including wifi) as well as some toiletries and other small provisions are provided.
The owners seemed friendly and helpful, and they left us to our own devices (for those keen on privacy). The location was perfect -- within walking distance to a nice beach area and a 10-minute drive to Kona's touristy shops-and-cafes area. Overall, it was a perfect stay!
The pictures of our apartment were really nice and it was even more lovely than we expected. The kitchen had everything we needed and the space was clean, bright and airy and so close to the beach. Flowers fell from the overhanging trees right outside the front and back door. SO beautiful! It was a lovely place to stay, I have told all my friends and I look forward to finding my way back!
