Interaction with Guests
I will be there to greet the guests on their arrival make sure they have what they need. I am always available to answer any question and take care of any needs that come up.
We are with in walking distance of two of the most popular beaches in Kona. We are also 1 mile from Keauhou shopping center so if you need groceries, want to see a movie, mail off something or get something to eat you don't have to go into the bustle of town.
There is a trolley bus that travels by us in both directions of Kona, there is also a mass transit bus system that travels all the way around the island.
The home is located across the street from the ocean so most windows are only screened in with shutters that can be closed for privacy. This is done so that you can take advantage of the ocean breeze. We ask that you are considerate to others when using the TV, the sound travels easily with no glass in the windows.
Smoking at front of property, no smoking in building.
Our stay at Palm Hale was very short (1 night). We did have a very pleasant talk with David and he did all he could to make us comfortable. We would have liked to have more time to enjoy the area.
Dave's place is great and he was a fine host. Accommodated our wish to drop our stuff early after we flew in. Was helpful and then stepped out of our way. Nice location near a good snorkeling beach and town as we'll. would love to go back sometime.
I stayed in the Queen Palm Suite with my daughter and we were very pleased with the set-up, which included kitchenette amenities, a screened porch that provided privacy by means of overlooking a jungle view as well as partial ocean view, and beach toys to ensure a fun stay. Wifi and guide books included. David was helpful in recommending places to eat and get groceries. The place is really close to two beaches, one of which had excellent snorkelling with tons of tropical fish and sea turtles. We had a small problem with the doorknob on our first day and David came right away to fix it. It was fun chatting with him about BnB ownership and the perks of living in Hawaii.
We had a great experience staying at David's place . Communication was easy and check in was smooth .
The room is located around 3.5 miles ( 7 mins) from the center of town . It is also walking distance to two great snorkeling spots .
The room is big , bed is quite comfortable , lanai is nice and breezy !
Would recommend .
This room was perfect for our short 3 night stay in Kona. Private top floor room with a nice screened in porch and a beautiful view of the ocean and mountains. We also very much enjoyed the on site laundry that was available. The only knock on the place is the location to any restaurants. You will certainly need a car or bike to get to any of those. However, the place more than makes up for it with two great beaches just 10 minutes walking distance from the room. David was a great host. He was very responsive to my messages and very accommodating with our late arrival. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Kona.
We loved our stay in this room. The room was exposed to the outside world with a screened in porch attached to the room, which we enjoyed. The house was conveniently located and we rode bikes all over town. There was off street parking. Having coin laundry on site was a huge plus. David was super pleasant and willing to help.
The room was clean, light adn very well located (just near the beach) and David was very welcoming and helpful. The room has a mosquito net (and not really windows) so if you want to be close of the nature (you can hear birds, sea) it is a good choice! We really enjoyed our stay (2 days) here.

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.
