The women who works during the day is amazing, and the one who checked me, so polite and a beautiful personality, I’m going to recommend this place to friends and family.
from the first moment you feel very welcoming here. very cute lady, who answers all the questions and helps you with everything. surfboards, boogieboards, laundry and dryer everything you need is here. like a flat. good beach in the morning or evening for surfing. turtles are right there. If you are lucky, you can see one who's eating dinner ;P. enough parking space and great to explore the area around captain cook and kailua-kona. geckos in the room with beautiful colours.
We loved our room (Seaside) with a partial view of the ocean, slats open to the sound of the sea, and a lanai looking onto coconut trees. The room was spacious and attractive. The location is very quiet, tucked about a block up a road from Ali’i Dr. Across that road is a beach that is great for beginner snorkeling. We had a fridge, microwave, etc.
I had some minor complaints. People should know that there is a sign that says Bed and Breakfast: you make both. If you need much assistance with anything or want fresh towels often this isn’t the place for you. There is, however, a washer and dryer to use.
Our rental included a combination bedroom/kitchenette plus a separate side room lanai that we really enjoyed. We liked our room so much that we found ourselves enjoying just hanging around in it. A fully-equipped community grill/kitchen/dining area was a real plus. It was a short walk to a very nice beach park that offers excellent snorkeling, surfing, sunbathing and even people-watching. They have lots of water sports equipment that you would otherwise have to rent or buy. Close by is an excellent shopping center featuring many good stores (even a movie theater and a post office). The beachfront nighttime action for Kailua Kona is 10 minutes away and parking was surprisingly available whenever we drove over to there. Most of all, the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. We hated to leave! John & Mary Gannon Chicago
Wonderful view of the ocean. Water activity supplies were great. Terrific location, mid way to south & north into Kona.
Challenging narrow, unpaved, Private road to get here.
