Kona vacation rental

The Islands of Hawaii is sometimes called the Orchid Isles or the Volcano Isles. The Big Island of Hawaii is divided in half by three volcanoes, Hualalai, Mauna Kea, and Mauna Loa. To the east is the Hilo side which is the windward side of the island, and to the west is the Kona side which is the leeward side of the island. The weather and ocean conditions can be vastly different on each side of the island depending on the time of year and the predominant trade winds. The Big Island is large and diverse, boasting 11 of the world's 13 climate zones. Because the mountains block the northeasterly trade winds, the Kona side of the island gets very little rain and enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year. For this reason you would have to be having very poor luck to find your vacation rainy if visiting there. However for this reason its probably not going to be as lush as the other islands.

You won't have any trouble finding Kona vacation rentals. There are just as many here as there are on the other islands such as the Kauai Vacation Rentals. If your interested in checking out the Kona Travel Blog be sure and check out the link.
