A home away from home with everything you could want and lots of thoughtful little touches! We loved our stay and were not disappointed. Randall took the time to give us lots of tips for the island which was really appreciated! We would definitely recommend staying here!
Randall was the most gracious host we experienced on Hawaii. He was willing to bend over backwards to accommodate my early arrival, helped me with tips for fun ideas for teens, let us borrow his snorkel and swimming gear. and even after we had left his place, offered ideas for best places to snorkel, and eat local Hawaiian food. A total sweetheart.
Gorgeous place. Very quiet location. The only thing you hear when you wake up is the birds (no roosters). The garden is beautiful and the location is very central to Kona. It's just a 5 minute drive to the main shops and restaurants. All needed amenities provided in the apartment. I liked the complimentary local snacks provided in the room. They were a nice touch. There were also plenty of local tips and recommendations in the guidebook. Overall I would definitely come back to this place again!
Randall and Denni are amazing hosts. You will feel well taken care of. Their place is wonderful - the gardens are amazing with local flora and fauna. The amenities are a fantastic bargain for the price. Sunset views. A short drive to the local beaches. Well situated near great snorkelling spots. Tonnes of local tips and hospitality. One of the best stays we’ve had! Highly recommend.
If it's available, book it! Best value for your money in the Big Island. Randall's house is clean, well located near Kona and tons of attractions, and really nice! I had never booked a place with a shared bathroom, but as noted in several other reviews, this IS NOT an issue. There are clear rules for using the bathroom, plus cleaning supplies if you "make a mess", and the bathroom is in a separate, private area. Plus, you have a sink in your room for brushing teeth and etc, so no issue at all. Also, the hosts are amazing: they leave a folder with activity suggestions and we followed most of them - really, really good. I couldn't have asked for a better place.
It was really great. Easy to come and go as you please. Comfy and what we wanted. Randall and Denni were very nice and low key.
First of all Randall is a great host and the overall Airbnb experience exceeded my all expectations. I had very late flight and it was not an issue when it comes to checking in. The room was fresh and very clean. In addition you can expect to have some local coffee and snacks, which was nice touch. Randall was very helpful way before I have even arrived and also during my stay. He shares many useful tips!! Overall it was great! Definitely I WILL stay there again next time!!
