Adults-only apartments in Kailua-Kona
Apartment Description:

This spacious, well appointed apartment, with newly remodeled kitchen and bathroom, is located in Kailua-Kona, Big Island, on one acre of land, on a private road, and overlooks 15 acres of grassland and jungle, with background ocean views. At 938 feet above sea level, the property enjoys morning and evening breezes, cooler temperatures, and spectacular sunsets. This apartment is one of two ground level apartments in a two story private home (owners reside in the 2nd floor living space); it is the right unit in the photos taken facing the sliding glass entrance doors. Each apartment has a separate outside entrance which is located on the opposite side of the house from the owner’s 2nd floor entrance. The owners are very quiet and considerate of guest privacy but they are always available to answer questions, make suggestions, and provide directions.

The apartment has one large bedroom, with a high quality queen sized mattress, one bathroom, and a dining/living area/kitchenette. The apartment sleeps a maximum of 2 people.

If this unit (the South Unit) is booked during the dates you wish to stay, please review the VRBO listing for the adjacent unit, 648500 (the North Unit).

The home is conveniently located just off of Palani Road and it is only a 13 minute drive from the Kona Airport (KOA), a 7 minute drive to the Kailua-Kona pier and the Ali’i Drive “old-town” tourist and restaurant district, a 5 minute drive to Walmart, and a 10 minute drive to Costco. Additional attractions include multiple nearby world-class snorkeling, swimming, sunbathing, surfing, and turtle/whale watching beaches, multiple golf courses, and numerous coffee plantations, farmers markets, restaurants, historic sites and other tourist attractions. As an added bonus, the property is a great spot for bird watching, including wild parrots, kalij pheasants, francolins, wild turkeys, cardinals, saffron finches, various song-birds, pueo (Hawaiian owl), and 'io (Hawaiian hawk).

Additional amenities include air conditioning, 40" cable tv, highspeed internet, barbeque grill, outdoor dining area, shared laundry access, use of snorkeling gear, beach towels and beach chairs, and off-street parking for one car per apartment. Also available, upon request, is a portable mini-grill and a portable Coleman camping stove, for use during your outings. The kitchen and bathroom were remodeled in October of 2020 and the unit has newer furnishings, is very clean, and has everything you will need, including stove/oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker (combined K-cup & large large drip-pot). Out of respect for the health of owners and other guests, smoking is prohibited anywhere on the property (prohibited areas include all indoor and outdoor areas) - closest area where smoking is not prohibited is the street adjacent to the property.

Covid Cancellation Policy: See state/county quarantine information and liberal Covid cancellation policy details below.

Covid Cleaning Notes: A minimum of 48 hours of vacant time will be maintained between each reservation, and a thorough deep-cleaning will be completed no less than 24 hours before guest check-in. All horozontal and touch surfaces, including knobs, handles, remotes, light switches, and furniture are cleaned and disinfected, using EPA/CDC approved Covid-19-killing-products, between each guest. Glasses, dishes, cooking utensils, pots & pans, and silverware will be clean but sanitization of these items is not guaranteed because there is no dishwasher in the unit; however, disposable paper/plastic plates, bowls, glasses and silverware are provided for your convenience. As an added protection, each room is subjected to a sterilizing UV light treatment between guests.

Covid 19 HVAC Notes: This unit has a completely separate air conditioning system and there is no shared duct-work or "shared-air" between this unit and any other unit.

Covid 19 Condiment Notes: To the extent that single serving packets of creamer, mustard, ketchup, mayo, and soy sauce are available at the local Costco store, these items will be stocked in the apartment at no cost to you.

Covid Quarantine/Cancellation Notes: Hawaii has implemented strict Covid-19 quarantine requirements that may affect the quality of your vacation and may affect your ability to stay at this property.

As of the current date, to avoid Hawaii’s 10 day travel quarantine, you must get a Covid 19 test, from a Hawaii-approved testing facility, no more than 72 hours prior to your flight from the mainland to Hawaii, and you must create a “Safe Travels Hawaii” account (at https://travel.hawaii.gov) and upload your negative results to your account PRIOR to boarding the final leg of your flight to Hawaii.

As of June 15, 2021, if you have been fully vaccinated, in the United States, you will not need to test again for inter-island travel. This means that although you will need to get tested before your flight from the mainland to Hawaii, you won’t need to retest, within the islands, if you are traveling to more than one island during your visit (provided, that you bring proof of vaccination within the U.S.).

On June 25, 2021, the Governor announced that effective July 8, 2021 the State of Hawaii will eliminate its pre-travel testing/quarantine requirement for domestic travelers to Hawaii who have been fully vaccinated in the United States. Vaccinated domestic travelers must upload their CDC issued vaccination record card to the state’s Safe Travels Hawaii website and have that card with them upon arrival in the State of Hawaii.

Note that if you are required to pretest and do not upload your results to your Safe Travels Hawaii account prior to the last leg of your flight, the State will require that you quarantine for 10 days. And, if you are required to quarantine, County law prohibits us from renting to you and you will need to quarantine in a hotel. For this reason, the key box code will be given to you after we receive confirmation of your exemption from quarantine. Therefore, when you upload either your negative test results or your domestic vaccine card to the State's Safe Travel's Hawaii website, please email a copy to us at halepamahoa@gmail.com. Or text a photo/screen-shot of this info to us at 808-225-2266. I will then email the key box code (and wifi password) to you.

Note that for as long as pre-travel Covid testing is required by the State of Hawaii, you will be given a full refund if you cancel because you tested positive on the pre-travel test.
Rooms open to patios. Smart televisions are featured in guestrooms. Guests can surf the web using the complimentary wireless Internet access. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

Perfect and clean paradise
We absolutely loved this beautiful apartment! It truly was immaculately cleaned and just as represented online. The gardens and outdoor space were like paradise, and Lisa and Martha had truly thought of everything. We had all that we needed (and more) for a perfect getaway. We would love and hope to come back with friends sharing the other apartment.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent place to stay on the big island
Awesome place to stay on the big island. Spotless ohana unit with everything you need to stay comfortably. I loved the basket of snacks and appreciated all the small details that made the stay very convenient, from having oil for cooking and having beach chairs to borrow for the beach. Also had reliable internet for working remotely Lisa and Martha were very helpful, answering any questions we had right away. When I had an issue using the outdoor grill they went out of their way to help and resolved it right away. Couldn't have picked a better place to stay

5/5 Excellent

Second time staying at this house!!
We enjoyed our stay on this property so much the first time that decided to stay here again for our 2nd trip to Kona! Lisa and Martha are wonderful hosts that obviously enjoy sharing their home with their guests. The house and grounds are meticulously taken care of. They provide everything you need for a comfortable stay. From the snacks and drinks to the beach gear you are covered! They are both very knowledgeable about the islands and all the activities on the Big Island. When we come back to the Big Island we will definitely stay here again!

5/5 Excellent

Wish We Were Staying Longer!
