Kona Kai has a beautiful, tranquil, and serene property on the bay side. The Key West style cottages are clean and comfortable. You can take a kayak or paddleboard out for a spin. The pool is also relaxing. Don't miss the hammocks under the stars.

Greetings, how's your sleep at nights when you stayed here? By looked at pictures, I could not tell if one can close their windows all the way (block/reduce outside noises) or not? Many thanks!
No issues with noise. You will be fine. It's a very quiet resort.
