Open, airy and comfy with a great view
We stayed here for part of our honeymoon and really enjoyed it. My favorite part of the house was the open-air feel. The unit has huge doorways that open up to the lanai, so it almost feels like a 3-sided house (the doors do shut if for some crazy reason you wanted to). Per the owner's recommendation, we didn't shut the doors the whole time we were there, even when we left the house. We loved making breakfast on the lanai in the mornings! The unit is one of three. The owners live in the middle unit and are wonderful folks. We enjoyed meeting Steve & Helen, and we really benefitted from their advise on restaurants and beaches. They also had beach towels, cooler, and snorkel gear that we borrowed. The place is beautiful, clean, and very comfortable with a fabulous view. It's pretty amazing to wake up to that view. Depending on what you're looking for, the possible downside to this property would be that it's not as private as a stand-alone place. You are connected to the other two units. By keeping the door wide open, you can sometimes hear what's going on next door. Steve & Helen were very respectful of our privacy and didn't come to our side at any point, but if someone is in the pool they can certainly see into the unit if your curtains aren't pulled. All that being said, we enjoyed this spot immensely, particularly since we had more private houses that we stayed at later in the trip so we were able to mix things up a bit. I would love to stay here again if/when we make it back to Kona.
