In my ongoing quest to find a quality affordable house to rent for a unique vacation experience I found my way to the Kona Travel Blog. Unfortunately this isn’t so much a blog in the traditional sense as a daily repetition of the same marketing hype that also fills their Kona vacation rentals website. Moving on to the website itself it was both attractive and relatively simple to use given the massive amounts of data it holds. Of course, it’s all downhill from there. Although there are numerous homes, condos and hotels listed on the site, none were much more appealing then those I’ve seen elsewhere. For some reason, however, the prices were extraordinarily high. Yes, I’m aware we’re talking about beach front Hawaiian vacation rentals here, but the prices were still three to times higher then I found on similar sites. Their Kauai Vacation Rentals page has the exact same problem. Plenty of selection, but nary a deal to be found.
