This home is everything described and more! The location is well situated between Kailua-Kona, Kealakekua Bay, coffee plantations to the north and Volcano National Park and Green Sands Beach (to the south.) The owners are very helpful and send out lots of information before you get there to help you plan for your trip. We loved the large lanai, the surrounding palm and plumeria trees and the fantastic ocean views. It is really peaceful and tropical. The owners have pride of ownership and have decorated the home beautifully; there are new appliances and furnishings and there is a barbeque on the lanai for cooking every dinner so you can relax on the lanai during sunset. Beautiful home and great service; we would recommend this home to our friends for sure!
