"We have not had a chance to stay at Shawn's condo yet but I had to write a compliment on his considerate customer service in answering questions and providing info even before we had made a confirmed reservation. Good customer service and I look forward to staying in the future."

Our third trip to the BI and this condo is THE best so far!
"We stayed for two weeks in late July and although it was El Nino and the hottest trip to Hawaii that we have experienced, we really enjoyed this condo. It was WONDERFUL! Everything you need to have a relaxing time. Working with Wendee was great, seamless, and because it was hot, we had to use the AC and the elevator a bit more than usual and glad we had both. These owners have thought of everything, and the "penthouse" was extremely quiet and had those gorgeous views for sunrises and sunsets. The kitchen was stocked with the essentials to get started, and we so appreciated this. Also, the beautiful decor, the well-stocked kitchen and the awesome master bath is truly what you see in the photos.
Even though it was hot and humid we spent a lot of time on the lanai. Sliding those doors back in the morning when it was cool made the coffee taste better (even being Kona Coffee!) and the table and chairs were wonderful. In the later evening after being at A Bay or Mauna Kea beach, using the chaise lounges to relax with a glass of wine and then cook steaks on your own grill was a treat. (Our last place literally had a line at the grill :-( so having the summer kitchen was really worth it!). For the first time ever, we DID spend quite a few nights in the condo.
And everything you would want for the beach is there, including a cooler. We have bought many chairs and coolers on our six trips to Hawaii. This was the first year we didn't have to!!!! I also want to say that this is convenient to the beach, pool, and you can walk to the Shops if you want. We also went to the Tropics Ale House (great mai tais!) and Lava Lava Club, Quinn's, Don the Beachcomber and Orchid Thai in Kona. We also tried Monstera for the first time, and it was awesome (a must if you like sushi).
Thank you to the owners for sharing this beautiful condo!
So, I would like to recommend this place to others, but I really want to keep it a secret so we can get our dates for next year!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful Villa, it is the perfect size and location for our family of four (2 adults and 2 children). We had rented other Villas before but this one fits our needs probably ideally. It is very close to the pool, a great asset with our kids who went there at least 3 times a day in the first few days. The condo itself has a great layout and is very generously furnished and equipped.
We also truly enjoyed the lanai with the table as we eat breakfast and dinner always outside which is a real treat. I imagine this is not our last visit to this wonderful Villa and place!"

"Just returned from eleven glorious nights in this property. This villa is, as native Hawaiians might say, "Kupaianaha!" This means extraordinary, remarkable or wonderful. It's all this and more!!! This is truly a luxury property—spacious, finely appointed and absolutely awesome in every way. Everything is top of the line and it was spotless on arrival.
The owner is a dream to work with and stays on top of things. In fact, the second evening, discovered the propane tanks for the fab built-in Viking grill on the lanai were empty. I emailed the owner and within minutes, someone arrived with a fresh tank. Wow! We grilled out at least half the nights, and there's a fridge out there too. Cold beverages always within easy reach. Beds were very comfortable. There are more than enough beach towels, bath towels, etc, and with 4 ladies in our group of six, that was important. His storage space is filled with beach stuff, incl boogie boards, beach chairs, etc.
I could go on and on about our experience here: the location, the Kolea community, and the value. You just have to experience it for yourself."
