    Hello,

    My husband and I will be in the Kona area for a week at the beginning of May. We're hoping to do mostly shore diving and are bringing some of our gear with us.

    We're having a hard time finding accommodations that would enable us to rinse and securely hang our gear to dry each day after our dives. We'd like a quiet apartment/studio (something where we can cook).

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    I've stayed at Uncle Billy's a couple of times and enjoyed my stay. Each room has a balcony to hang gear and some rooms have a stove and sink.

    Three years at Kona Bali Kai, 2 miles south of down town, never had a problem hanging gear up to dry on balcony. As a bonus, Da Poke Shack is in the complex (best poke on the island!).

    Our favorite place is Sugar Cottage. Guided diving, tanks and weights are included with the vacation rental.

    We are friends with the owner and still dive together.
