          Has anyone stayed in unit 223? Reviews on airbnb are pretty good for this unit. Staying there in December.

          Do you have to pay for parking? Also, is there a local bus we could take or shuttle, if we don't rent a car?

          We were there in February. We had a car and we didn't have to pay to park in the Kona Islander Inn. Since we had a car, I don't know about any busses or shuttles.
