True Hawaiian Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Are you looking for relaxation, views, a centrally located place and a luxurious home feel? Dont look any further! Owner’s Elaine and Vernon give you place for your ultimate Hawaiian vacation. Elaine has thought of every detail to giving you a tour of the apartment when you arrive, leaving extra large fluffy towels, outdoor gas BBQ, full kitchen, a binder describing their favorite restaurants, to the apartment’s wonderful decor! You can definitely tell that Elaine and Vernon love their house as well as the guests that come to visit them. It is very well manicured. Vernon did an inceredible job remodeling the apartment. The apartment comes with ceiling fans and windows with screens to keep it cool. Did I mention the shower? Everytime I took a shower I felt like I was at a five star resort. My husband and I enjoyed drinking our morning coffee out on the deck every morning. The ocean views are incredible. We will definitely come back to Kona and stay again. Mahalo Elaine and Vernon for letting us stay at your piece of paradise!

Cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

It was our first trip to the big island and we really had a great time. This is a great place to stay for a couple, or even someone solo looking to get away. A convenient location, close enough to the major highways to get just about anywhere, but far enough away to allow peaceful times on the patio. The owners are very nice, and the rental is very comfortable.

Hideaway on Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

Overall we had a wonderful stay at this property. The owners were kind, friendly and willing to help in any way they can. The elevation (about 1400ft) is high enough to get away from the heat below, but do be aware that about 6pm the Coqui frogs start in their chirping and keep it up most of the night. Then around 5:30am the roosters start in. I thought the first night I'd go nuts, but I quickly got used to it, and we joked we'll miss those frogs once we went home. We had zero problems with bugs, mosquitoes, etc. The fans inside the home keep it quite comfortable, but then again, we were there in February.

The bed was very nice, as is the bathroom. Everything is updated and kept in good working order. A nice addition would be a retractable clothesline (or fold up wooden drying rack) for the porch outside for drying swimsuits, towels etc.

We had several green visitors throughout our weeklong stay - geckos come and visit, and once we found one on my laptop computer! We had a great view of a lightning storm too. The owners do have dogs, but they are very quiet - I didn't even realize they had dogs until after several days had passed.

Thanks for a wonderful stay!
