This is a very unusual property. Essentially a large house with a number of out buildings that was built as an inn, it feels more like a family compound that was cobbled together.
The big drawing card is its proximity to Kona-Kailua. You can get to the main part of town in than 10 minutes. It is located above town where it is a bit wetter, so it has a lush feel.
Unfortunately, after that the negatives pile up:
* It is on a small winding road that is fairly busy. It’s location right in the middle of sharp curve means road noise comes from both above and below the property. Family and guest noise was prominent. Ear plugs offered on the bedside table were a troubling sign.
* Because it is in the wetter region, our room had a musty smell that left us congested after each night.
* THIS IS NOT A COVID-SAFE PROPERTY. Neither the owners nor guests observed any COVID precautions.
* This is a property that wears its religious convictions on its sleeve, with many bible sayings displayed prominently. Normally this would be a comfort, but in combination with the attitudes towards masking and the large American flag at the entry to property, there was no mistaking the attitudes of the owners. This is the first place we have ever felt uncomfortable because of the divisions in the US.
Between being uncomfortable physically and socially, this was without question our least favorite stay on the Island. We can not recommend it.
