My wife and I are moving to Kona this coming Monday, July 6th (and we're getting quite excited!). I've been reading a ton online and really enjoy reading the advice and info here in this forum -- I was hoping that someone might have some suggestions for us.
We can stay with some family until we find a place, but then were thinking it might make sense to find a furnished place to rent for a month or so in order to give us a chance to get to know the area better and understand better what our options are before we look for something more permanent.
Does this seem like a good idea?
Since it's just for a month, we're pretty flexible:
- Our budget is up to about $1400, although we'd be open to higher depending on what it includes.
- We'd love something in a great location that is walking distance to town if possible.
- We're flexible in terms of type (condo vs. house, etc.) and size of place.
I've been scouring Craigslist pretty regularly, and that's been useful, but I was curious if anyone had any other suggestions for us -- anything (whether it's specific places or just good ways to find a place once we're there) would be useful!
