This was our 3rd visit to the KSS. 2005, 2007, and now 2011. We have stayed there with family and friends. J and John are excellent hosts. J is a great resource for locating the best beaches and shopping. John enjoys people. They are very accommodating. Everything is there at the house! Beach, snorkel, you name it, they have it or they know how to get it. They have fully equipped kitchens. Lovely view of the ocean. Great pool. It's as if you are in your own home. Fresh bananas on the property. I can't say enough. My go to for Kona. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
