Just returned from 8 days in Kona. This Akoa home made our stay of 6 people perfect. Central to Alii. Convenient to Costco, Walmart, Target and a host of local eateries. 15 minutes to Honokohau harbor and 20 minutes to the airport. The 2200 Sq ft home lived large for 6 adults. Nicely furnished with flat screens and DVD players in each bedroom. The infinity pool was the hangout after a day of touring, fishing and golf. Magnificent views in the morning and evening.
Traveling with two boys (20 & 12) we foud Akoa Place to be exactly what we needed! Each of the boys had their own room to accomodate their different sleep patterns and the Master suite was on the other side of the house providing some privacy for the adults! The house was extremely well appointed, spacious and had a great view of the ocean. We enjoyed many beautiful sunsets from the pool and patio. The boys are not into dining out so we used the kitchen extensively and always found the "tools" we needed to prepare a great meal.
The location of the home was perfect. Close enough to many attractions but nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood which provided plenty of time to relax. The attractions we enjoyed most included a morning on the Hawaiian Oceanic doing the Kona Experience Tour (swam with wild dolphins, snorkeled and saw whales), hiking down to the black sand beach at Pololu Valley Lookout, The Umauma Zip and Dip Experience (Zipline over waterfalls & cliff jump and swim in the falls), Surf lessons (Hawaii Lifeguard Surf Instructors) and touring the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden.
Of all the vacation rentals that we have stayed in, this one by far was the nicest, clean, well appointed, beds comfortable with nice linens, and a great view! My husband and I are planning to get back to Akoa Place without the boys so we can spend more time relaxing!
