The house was clean and comfortable, stocked with everything you could possibly need. Our stay was great but too short.
Palani Hale is beautiful and convenient and we had a great time here. It only took 10 min to drive to the closest beach with local restaurants stocking craft beer. Many supermarket nearby and also not far from KOA airport. Very convenient for us since we had to pick up family at the airport.
Our host Jeanne and Alan are wonderful and very friendly. Jeanne is also very knowledgeable as far as where to go visit on the big island. Every bedroom has a different theme and we could tell how much time they spent to make it like home. We certainly loved the decoration. The house was well stocked (including kitchen). WiFi is fast so I was very happy. They also provided many beach gear for snorkeling or other activities so our family had a lot of fun.
Palani House was at very convenient location in Kona. All good beaches and downtown were nearby(~10-15 mins of drive). Jeanne has done a very great job in decorating the house. Every room's interior had a theme(rainforest/aquatic etc.). Kitchen was well stocked.We also enjoyed couple of good movies on her TV's cable.
Thanks Jeanne for being a good host! Hope to visit again soon!
The Palani House is great if you want to be close to Kona! Jeanne is a great host. She met us upon arrival and gave a thorough tour of the home. We were traveling with our 11 month old, and she had everything we needed for him that we couldn't bring (highchair, crib, stroller, etc.). She graciously shared her fresh fruits and vegetables with us as well. The house is well-stocked with household items as well as beach gear. Unfortunately there is quite a bit of traffic noise; and the outdoor space leaves much to be desired. If you value convenience to town and beaches over tranquility, I would definitely recommend this place.
amazing host (knowledgeable & friendly)
house has everything you need
on a busy road
lack of a comfortable yard space
Alan and Jeanne are great, their place was very nice and homely but what stuck out was their service and hospitality which were exceptional, thank you very much, it was great meeting you.
I wasn't with the group that stayed at the house, 4 guys from our company went. On the first day Jeanne messaged me to let me know that they made it "home" safe and were all settled in. The guys loved her! She'd call the guys whenever she had fresh fish available and they'd get it for a really good deal. The house was clean, comfortable and roomy enough for the group. Conveniently, the house was only a few minutes away from our project site. We'd stay here again when we start the second phase of the project. Thank you Alan and Jeanne, you're awesome.
The house was cosy and homely, in addition Jeanne was very welcoming and helpful. Our trips around the Island were mainly guided by the information she gave us and we were not disappointed. It was great to have access to a selection of body boards, beach towels and snorkeling masks, which saved us from having to hire or buy them.
We are having a dish install this month, so the guys will have lots of choices.
Alan & Jeanne were extremely accommodating to our schedules and even prepared a fruit basket for us on arrival. Everything was very smooth. The place was extremely clean.
We enjoyed our stay. On the first day, Jeanne made us feel welcome by familiarizing us with the house and its features. My kids helped Jeanne pick up some fruit from the backyard which we enjoyed throughout our stay.
With 3BR, 2BA, it's very comfortable so that everyone can get ready in the morning with ease. She has DVDs stocked up, and the kids enjoyed those on one evening when we were all tired from the day's activities. Everything is close including national chains (Safeway, Starbucks), and the local places as well.
We didn't use the boards, snorkeling equipment, etc because we had our own - but these will save some money as it is expensive on the island.
Driving on the island takes no time to get used to with the hills. On exiting and entering the driveway to/from the highway (Hawaii Belt Road or Palani Road depending on your GPS), we had no trouble.
The house was in great condition, clean and spacious. Alan and Jeanne were very thoughtful in providing everything we could possibly think of. It was perfect for me and my friends. Thank you so much!
Jeanne was a pleasure to interact with. Shortly before her stay was to commence, a family matter arose that precluded her for staying. However, she sourced another guest to stay in her absence. Crisis avoided. Look forward to hosting Jeanne in the future.
Jeanne has created a wonderful environment for your holiday pleasure. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, and very close to Kailua Kona for beaches, night life and shopping. This is a lovely bit of paradise just for you.
Aloha Folks, I have known Alan and Jeanne for over 30 yrs here in Kona Hawaii. I first met Jeanne thru the Hawaii Arabian Horse Club as she was one of the founding members. They are both very knowledgeable about the Big Island of Hawaii...Jeanne was a trail/tour director and Alan takes folks out on his charter/fishing boat..I also know Alan and Jeanne thru the Big Island Ball Room Dance Club as Alan was one of our first instructors..I recommended that Alan and Jeanne share their Beautifully newly renovated house to Guest of AirBnB. I have witnessed first hand all the extras they are offering their Guest..and can Highly Recommend you giving their house a try...Aloha, Ted Dailey
