My husband and I stayed at the Evett’s Kona Coffee Vacation Rental for one week in April 2009 and loved every minute there. Having stayed on the Kona Coast twice before, we were ready for a quieter, more peaceful place than the typical oceanside lodgings and this was it. The location is far enough from the crowded town and the traffic but very convenient to the highways; in fact Costco is LESS than 10 minutes away, I think! The cooler temperatures are so pleasant up at that higher elevation. The apartment is new, very clean, and tastefully and beautifully decorated; the photos on the website are lovely but can’t do it justice. So many windows, so much natural light! The kitchen is very well equipped which was good for us because we spent a lot of our time cooking (the farmer’s market in Hilo is fantastic). Every day we enjoyed the best Kona Coffee we’ve ever tasted, grown right there on the estate by Donna and Robbie. We had our meals out on the spacious deck which overlooks a slope of trees, flowers, and lush tropical vegetation, all very private and quiet. Donna and Robbie allowed us as much privacy as we wanted but were also quick to respond when we had any questions or needed anything, and their warmth and friendliness made us feel so comfortable and welcome. They really show their guests the aloha spirit. We would love to go back to Kona Coffee Vacation Rental someday to relax again in that beautiful place with the big view of the Kona Coast and to spend time again with our new friends the Evetts! We highly recommend this vacation rental. It’s a wonderful place to come back to after each day’s adventures on the Big Island.
