Mention Kailua-Kona and many seasoned travellers will dismiss the Hawaiian district as a bit of a tourist trap. However, the area is popular for a reason; its volcanoes and sea views present breathtaking scenes. Local hospitality, behind the glitz and glam, is more than willing to take you in. We’ve picked out these 10 Airbnb vacation rentals with the most value for money, and offering authentic experiences, so you can get in touch with why the world fell in love with Kailua-Kona in the first place.

1. A convenient studio with privacy (from 55 USD)

This detached private Airbnb studio for two is a great place to have some downtime yet also be close to the town, beaches, restaurants, and nightlife. Since it’s 3 blocks from the famous Ali’i Drive, you’re never fun from the pulsating energy of the town but, surrounded by nature and your private driveway, you won’t feel it at all. The clean and newly renovated studio with a private entrance has a quaint bedroom and 1 double bed for two guests. Also available is a Keurig machine and readily available laundry equipment. A seaside sunset and sunrise is never far away at all, indeed, the beach is just a couple of blocks away.
