David's place was perfect! We arrived here for the first two nights of our honeymoon and he welcomed us at the door, showed us around and provides awesome suggestions for things to do, places to eat, etc. His place was clean, spacious and right by the ocean. It had everything else needed. We enjoyed it so much we booked an extra night. Highly recommended!

The place was awesome. Not downtown Kona, but couldn't care less since we had a car. Very spacious, very clean, David was easy to reach and made our stay wonderful. The sofa bed was not the most comfortable, but we slept anyway. He can even lend us chairs for the beach, boogie boards, snorkeling gear... Would definitely stay there again!

This was a really great place to stay at Kona---David was wonderful, very attentive but let us have our space. It really was within walking distance of two great beaches and David loaned us snorkel and boogie boards, so we got to swim with turtles and schools of gorgeous tropical fish at Kahala'u park, which was amazing. The place was very clean, quiet, and comfortable, just like the listing says, and easy to cook for yourself with the Keauhou shopping center just a 5 min drive away. David also gave us some great recs for food (poke!!!) and for surfing lessons. It was an amazing, golden stay. Would definitely go back---was out of the busyness of Kona, too. Many thanks to David and his wife.

My wife and I moved here after having vacationed in Kona ourselves. The weather is warm and so is the water temperature year round. Kona is a community of good health, from all the out door activity's, both ocean and on land, and healthy eating. We both grew up on the coast of southern California which we thought was paradise. After having spent time here in Kona during the winter months we found that this was true paradise. We decided we wanted to be a part of the Island life. Now we have a place for others to come stay and find what we fell in love with. It has it all from fishing,snorkeling,hiking to exploring the volcanoes and water falls.
