I needed a small place in Kona for six days before Ironman began. This was a perfect house for me: two decks facing Kahaluu Bay, located off of Alii Drive, and available at a reasonable rate. The house was clean, well-stocked with kitchen implements, and was decorated in an old Hawaiiana style. The wifi worked, the laundry was good, and it was quiet. There was no air conditioning, but that was no problem because you get good ocean breezes at night and there were plenty of fans. I have been traveling to Kona for thirty-five years and have "seen it all". I would definately stay here again and recommend it to another single or couple. Note: it is located on a single lane road which is easy to miss from Alii Drive unless you know your way around. Also, parking is pretty tight and you should arrive during the daytime so you can see what you are doing.
