"First trip to the Big Island, and it was FaNtAsTiC!! My husband and I came out for a little work and brought the 3 kids (ages 8, 11, 15) for a lot of play! Finding Dennis & Cheryl was a Godsend! They were very accommodating and easy to work with. What a surprise it was to come to the condo and see the great renovations. We hear new photos are coming soon :) My biggest worry about traveling is that I have a bad back, and the bed is REALLY important to me. No worries here. The master bed was heavenly - thank you!!!! My second concern is the kitchen. I like to cook instead of always going out to eat. The spacious kitchen was very well stocked with every pot, pan, and utensil we needed. They even had a cooler for us to take to the beach! With five of us in the condo, I was worried about us being cramped, but this condo is very roomy. You can always find your own space to read, watch TV, enjoy the beautiful large lanai, etc. The master bedroom feels like its own mini getaway with a very spacious bedroom, reading nook, large, remodeled bathroom, and private access to the secluded lanai overlooking the golf course. Our favorite thing to do each day was pack the cooler and head to the private beach club, layout, read, eat our snacks, snorkel in the perfect little lagoon for HOURS, watch the amazing sunset, return to the condo's pool to wash off the sand and soak in the hot tub, then head home for dinner on the lanai and a movie in the comfy oversized living room chairs (I want those chairs!!!) We often spent the night strolling through the nearby shopping centers (Kings Shops or Queen's Shops) that were decorated for the holidays. Great stores and fun outdoor entertainment -- something for everyone! Thank you, Dennis & Cheryl. We are coming back again next year -- save us a week!!!"
