"The condo was beautiful and all of the extras (stand-up paddle boards, boogie boards, bikes, snorkels) were great for enjoying the beaches on the island.
The mauna lani beach is about a 10minutea walk through a lava field trail and really interesting fish ponds. Small but great snorkeling and calm for kids. Interesting hiking trails accessible right from the property. Great place to base yourself if exploring the north of the island.
Cindy was great to deal with, always responding promptly to correspondence. Would definitely recommend the condo."

"My husband and I have visited Hawaii maybe twenty times - I've lost count - and this condo definitely rates at the top. It is very well decorated and furnished. We cooked almost every night and I didn't find anything lacking in the kitchen. I really appreciated the rice cooker. We bought some really nice fish at the nearby Foodland Market to grill. Christine left salt and pepper, oil, and some seasonings in the pantry. That is very nice. You wouldn't believe the number of condos that don't even have salt!
The view in the back isn't as bleak as the pictures might depict. There were a variety of birds living there. There were some partridge type birds that make really odd calls and some bright solid yellow finches called saffron finches. We had a full moon setting out there.
We mostly relaxed, but spent one night in Hilo to visit the volcanoes. It made a much less hectic trip since it's about two and a half hours to Hilo and we got to the volcanoes before the busses. Don't miss the art gallery at the visitor center.
We didn't eat out much, but there are a lot of wonderful restaurant s in the area. We had two wonderful lunches at Merriman s in Waimea. We had a nice lunch at the lodge on Kilauea volcano. Shopping for groceries is much easier in Waimea and The Kings Shopping center. We went to Safeway in Kona, but that was a hassle with traffic and distance. There's a Longs Pharmacy in Waimea.
We definitely would rent this house again, and probably will. Christine, the owner, is very nice, and Robin, the property manager is very nice, efficient, and accommodating."

"2 families (with three teenagers) stayed for 2 nights. We wished we could have stayed for longer. Trude was great to deal with and went over and beyond in making our quick unplanned stay an easy and enjoyable experience. Great location with easy walking to "The Shops" which our kids did a couple of times for coffee and smoothies. Nice easy walk to the beach club(although the kids were not that impressed with the walk - 15 minutes by foot - 5 minutes by car). The beach club was perfect, we had shaded lounges for the six of us and spend the whole day there.
Well stocked apartment with everything we needed and lots of room for everyone.
I would definitely stay here again."

This is a beautiful condo within a small, gated complex located in an idyllic, serene location yet convenient to restaurants, shops and a grocery store. We absolutely loved it here! It was well maintained, spacious and very clean. Everything was top-notch …. gourmet kitchen, beautifully furnished living and dining area, loft, two bathrooms, and two bedrooms with very comfortable beds. The master bathroom was gorgeous and had a large shower with pebble tile flooring which felt great on the feet. The garage contained snorkel gear, beach chairs, coolers, anything and everything you may need. After our fun filled Big Island adventures everyday, we enjoyed spending the evening on the lanai which overlooked a historic preserve. Soooo peaceful and relaxing! The paved path to the beach club through the preserve and ancient fish ponds was a pleasant walk and also connected with the Shoreline Trail, fantastic for walks and/or runs as it passes through several lovely beaches. The tropical grounds were impeccably landscaped and lush, with a wonderful lava rock pool and hot tub area which was very quiet and relaxing. The reservation process went smoothly, and the owner was very informative and helpful. We hope to return for another amazing vacation on the Big Island and would definitely stay here again. Mahalo!"
