If you’re looking for a Kona vacation rental that is peaceful and feels like a true retreat from the rest of the world, I highly recommend the Kona Hula Girl. It is only a ten minute walk from Alii Drive and the farmer’s market. Don’t miss the farmer’s market. You won’t find better mangoes or papayas anywhere else. You usually have to pay to park anywhere close to Alii Drive, so I enjoyed the easy walk down and being able to explore some of the waterfront restaurants and shops.
Kona Vacation Rentals: Kona Hula Girl Review
Sherri and Dean, the owners, gave me a most hospitable welcome and a tour of the grounds and then led me to my beautiful room. I stayed in the beautiful Tiki Room which felt like staying in a tree house. The room was octagon in shape with screened in windows in every direction which perfectly let the trade winds blow through the room.
The airy room has the feeling of being on a Hawaiian plantation with the sound of swaying palm trees and a view of the ocean. There are high open beam ceilings and a wood floor. There is also a table to enjoy meals, a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. There is a grill area outside for cooking.
The quiet nights and the incredibly comfortable bed made for some great sleeping. In fact, it was the first time I had been able to sleep in for a while. I really loved the rest and relaxation that this place provided.
There was plenty of storage for my things, including a closet just outside the room, as well as a hanging space and drawers inside the bathroom.
Many Kona vacation rentals don’t provide you with anything but the rental. I was impressed that Kona Hula Girl had boogie boards, beach chairs, and coolers for me to take to the beach.
Kona Hula Girl also has coin-operated washers and dryers, an outdoor patio with an area for grilling, off street parking, cable TV, and free WiFi with a nice strong signal. I really liked staying in a room that had more space than an average hotel room, plus the ability to have breakfast in my room each day which helped save some money.
If you are looking at Kona vacation rentals and want a relaxing Hawaiian vacation, you will adore Kona Hula Girl.
