Best bnb stay ever!! The place look exactly as In the picture! The place had everything you needed as ex. Coffee, a very comfy bed, towels, shampoo and a beautiful Lanai where you van eat breakfast/chill In the evening!
Location is perfect to everything, but you need a rental car! We had some problems with the Wi-fi, but Thomas solve that problem immediatly (Even though he was on vacation)
Will recommend this place to everyone, and would definetly stay here again if we come back to Kona!
Have stayed at many airbnb places, but this is nr.1 :)
Thanx Thomas and Simone for a great stay!

The apartment was exactly as depicted in the images and it was a lovely place to stay in Kona. It has a completely separate entrance and the location was high enough in elevation that it was cooler, but an easy drive down to the Kona coast.
Unfortunately, Thomas and his family were on vacation so I didn't get to meet them in person, but they provide a great video orientation once you book your listing and are happy to provide any information or resources you may need during your stay.
The appartment of Thomas was the most (website hidden) I've stayed at with airbnb so far. Thomas was a great host even though we didn't have the chance to meet him. He explained very specificly how to reach the place and also gave us many recommodations as what to do. I would love to stay there again - awesome view and stylish and proper place. Just loved it with all the details - conditioner, beach towels... everything you need.
This is an absolute gem of a house! So comfortable, conveniently located, and beautifully decorated. Thomas was so incredibly helpful and welcoming, could not have asked for a more gracious host. We would love to stay here again!
We had a great time at the appartment of Thomas. Everything was very clean and perfectly equiped. We loved the evenings on the lanaii and felt like at home. We really want to recommened a stay at Thomas house. We definately would come back.
Thank you Thomas and Simone for 5 great days!!!

We had a lovely stay at this very nice apartment (2 nights only). Unfortunately, we did not get to meet our hosts personally as they were themselves on vacation, but everything was very well organized (thanks, Thomas, for all the helpful instructions prior to our visit - that was excellent). We also loved the lizards on the lanai... they are so cool and so much fun to watch!
We loved Hale Kea
The decor is an inspiration.
The location convenient.
The view from the lani is breathtaking.
And the bed is the most comfortable I have ever slept on.
There are so many intuative and thoughtful little touches here and there - it is as though as I desired something it appeard.
Having read the other reviews before arriving at Hale Kea we had high expectations - and we were not dissapointed!
If the resorts are not your thing but a little bit of luxury is what you are after do not hesitate to book this place.
2 days was not enough.
Thank you Thomas
We loved the apartment. It is tastefully decorated..looks just like the photos..and it is very comfortable. There is a lanai with comfy chairs and a table so that we could sit outside to eat, read, relax and appreciate the great view! It's also quiet and very private. Thomas's home is in a very nice neighborhood yet close to everything (short drive by car), It is also a great neighborhood for walking. Thomas sent us a video to show us how to access the apartment, where to park, etc. that was very helpful! Our only regret is that we didn't get to meet Thomas and his family in person! I highly recommend staying with them.
We loved the Hale Kea! It was hands down the best airbnb place we stayed at while we were in Hawaii (both the big island and Oahu)! It was so spacious, in a great, quite neighborhood, and just felt like home. Thomas was very welcoming (via airbnb notifications) but also gave us some distance, which was great since we were on our honeymoon! I'd totally recommend this place to anyone, it was so comfortable, clean , private, and welcoming.
This accomodation was really perfect! Very clean and modern style and everything in it, which we needed!
If we would travel to Kona again, we would like to stay in Hale Kea for sure!
Thanks to Thomas and his familiy for this nice stay!
Thomas et sa famille sont très agréables et très à l'aise, recherchant facilement le contact. La maison a été laissée dans un état plus qu'impeccable. Très ponctuels. Je les recommande vraiment.
