We spent 3 very nice days at Kay's studio ohana in Kailua Kona.
The location is great for access to Ali'i Drive, but away from the hussle and noise with easy access to South Kona. The lanai is lovely and very well equipped - really everything you might need, plus snorkeling equipment. Also a very good value.
Very nice apartment with beautiful terrace. Kay is very friendly. We loved breakfast on terrace with geckos. We recommend this place to everyone.
Kay is a terrific host, a warm and friendly person with tons of Aloha. The studio is compact but has everything you need; comfortable bed, simple but complete cooking facilities, nice shower, and adorable geckos. The house is in a peaceful residential neighborhood, although there was some traffic noise from Hwy. 11 - but not detrimental to our stay. Good location with easy access to downtown Kailua and snorkle destinations to the south. A great value and highly recommended!
Kay provided an absolutely fantastic stay. The lanai was great for watching sunsets and enjoying meals and the snorkel/beach gear came in very handy. The room was cozy and comfy and great to come back to after a long day of hiking and snorkeling. Thanks a ton, Kay!!
The location was great for exploring Kona.
We stayed at this conveniently located place for 2 wks. Kay gave us clear directions how to get there before we arrived. Even if the appartment is close to the higway it is pretty quiet during nights. Kitchen was actually a two-plate-heater, an oven, microwave, BBQ-grill and fridge out on the patio. Dishes were kept in the bedroom on a shelf and were done in the laundry. Even though the place is small we had enough room for our stuff. Kay provides guests with all the things needed for a perfect beach day (towels, boards, snorkel gear etc.). The only downside of the appartment was that is was in some places a little run down and dirty (sink in laundry, carpet) but there is enough stuff to clean, which we did. We even had one or two roaches during our stay.
The gekkos on the patio are a lot of fun to watch, but better keep all food inside - they are hungry :-) I would recommend this place to everyone who wants to be close to Kona and the beaches!!!!
Great studio with lovely lanai. Highly recommended!
Great location and perfect little setup if you plan on exploring for an authentic Hawaiian experience. Kay was very accommodating and has just about anything you would need for your stay!
Kay's place has everything we wanted for our time in Kona Kailua: 1) A parking spot. We rented a 4wd vehicle to get see the sites, and we needed that easy parking spot. 2) Private outdoor sitting space. The lailani is small, but perfect for two people. You can watch the geckos crawl around and the myna birds in the nearby trees. 3) Wifi with a fast, solid connection so we could get a bit of business done quickly and get to the beach. 4) Snorkel gear, bonus.
It was a very lovely, private, comfortable setting with great hospitality. The comfortable bed was very appreciated after a flight. I would recommend this as a place to stay. The sitting/cooking area was very peaceful.
