About this apartment

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 North Unit) is booked during the dates you wish to stay, please review the VRBO listing for the adjacent unit, 648636 (the South 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.

    Fantastic place to stay!!! Clean, peaceful, and convenient. Layout was perfect and the garden is beautiful. There were great snacks, communication/info, and accessible equipment that made our stay a little extra. Lots of details about the property that we appreciated and made our stay carefree (e.g. key box, info binder, recommendations, etc). We highly recommend!

    We had an awesome stay! It is a beautiful property with a perfect sized suite for two! Lisa and Martha left detailed instructions for everything! Super organized! We loved how well thought out everything was! The kitchen was stocked with a basket of goodies, there was coffee, creamer (real, not powdered!) and sugar as well as some drinks and snacks in the fridge! It was great not to have to rush out to a store first thing. As well, they have beach towels, chairs & snorkels & fins that you can borrow...oh and an umbrella too! We were just there for a short stay so it was very convenient for us to not have to pack snorkelling gear & towels. The suite was very clean & comfortable & had everything we needed. The garden area is stunning! I took my best picture of the trip, at sunset, in their backyard. They also have a lanai with a table and chairs for outdoor dining, two loungers and a grill available for use. And this might sound silly but I also really appreciated theirrevyclung system. I have been on many vacations where recycling was a major hassle or (I suspected) they didn’t recycle at all. Lisa told us they donate the proceeds of the recycling to the local humane society. Finally, as they didn’t have a booking the next day, they allowed us to check out later so we were able to hit one last beach on our last day and clean up before our flight home. It was truly a wonderful stay & we would highly recommend their vacation rental.

    Martha and Lisa were both very hospitable and the property was very well maintained. The best part was all the little extras which were included with the stay (Snacks for hiking, snorkel gear, bags, towels, sun tan, bug spray and so much more!) The location is great and easy to get to the main places for night life in under 10 minutes. Irrespective of where you stay in Hawai'i, you will need a rental car and will need to travel atleast 1 hour to reach the various activities and best places on the island and the commute was easy from their place. Both ladies were also helpful with directions and ideas for travel while we were there. We hope to visit again soon!

    Tranquility Base Here

    Perfectly located away from hustle and bustle of downtown area, but conveniently near enough to a food store and a Walmart. Beautiful view. You leave unit in morning and return in evening to a lush tranquil setting filled with the sound of tropical birds and not auto and pedestrian chatter as you would if you stayed at one of the local resorts. On site owners friendly and more than accommodating.

    Beautiful property, great location, immaculately clean and well appointed

    This was one of the nicest rental properties we have ever seen. Absolutely spotless; incredibly quiet and private, off the beaten path but still very close to the busier in-town waterfront area; easy access to everything but still an escape from it all. The starter provisions/welcome basket was abundant with something for everyone; sweet and savory, even gluten free options, plus lots of local favorites to enjoy, We also appreciated having a well stocked kitchen with plenty of condiments, cookware, and even storage bags and foil/wrap etc. It was nice to have access to the gardens as well as outing gear, including sunscreen, bug spray, coolers, beach towels and even a beach bag! They literally thought of everything! The bed was incredibly comfortable and A/C plus ceiling fans made us very comfortable! Hope to come back soon,
