"We enjoyed two glorious weeks on the Big Island, and Dave & Pam's condo was the perfect base camp. The condo was perfect for two of us - and four of us for a week when our adult kids joined us. Though we only made an occasional breakfast and lunch in the kitchen, it was convenient and well stocked. The beds - and pillows - were comfortable - and we appreciated the quality of linens. The Lanai was where we spent most of our time...playing games, eating and watching sunsets and spinner dolphins in the bay. A bonus was delighting in the fireworks over the bay on the 4th! The Honda Element was a terrific vehicle from which to explore the Island: we did tons of snorkeling, hiking, waterfall gazing and loved exploring Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Having been to Maui, Oahu and Kauai, our stay at Dave and Pam's has assured us we will return for many future explorations and delights of the Big Island. And, Hawaii is now our favorite Island! Finally, Dave was an absolute pleasure to work with; he is incredibly responsive, thorough and generous. Mahalo!"

4th time staying...wonderful property and great benefit-to-price ratio in Kona
"I also wrote a review in 2013 but realized I'm counting, I think, my 4th stay this year. First, as everyone mentions, the sounds of the ocean and views of the whales/dolphins, etc. is awesome. Even more importantly, the owners are totally and instantly responsive. Prior stay, I got permission to replace the recently broken tv and get the wifi installed. This year Amber immediately ordered new blender. The upgrades are regular: new curtains and couch before; new tile coming this Spring. Finally, the unit is very well equipped with all the toys you want (ie snorkel, boogie board, chairs, umbrellas, etc) and the Aloha spirit at Alii Villa condnimium, which Gina mentioned in her review, makes sunset viewing a social event for all."

"Our family spent a fantastic week in Kona with this condo as our home base and enjoyed diving (do the manta ray night dive if you can) and snorkeling and the beach. The condo was immaculate and well appointed, and most of the open floor plan has an unobstructed view of the ocean. Gene and Charlie were clearly very committed to providing a superior guest experience, and they responded quickly when we noted a minor maintenance issue.
The condo is just over a mile from downtown Kona. There is a reserved parking spot, and having a car is recommended but would not be necessary.
As others have stated, the condo has virtually everything you will need for your visit, including two coolers, binoculars, board games, sunscreen, a full set of dishes and silverware, and seasonings and condiments - I recommend you check in first and then go to Costco or Walmart or Safeway or a local store to stock up with what you need for the week. The high efficiency washer and dryer (with detergent) was nice, too.
Our family, including two teenagers, all really enjoyed the cono and fit comfortably in it. The ocean is so close that I had to shut the bedroom slider at night to keep the waves from waking me. There is no air conditioning, which took some getting used to, but a breeze and muliple ceiling fans kept the place comfortable. You can't help but feel relaxed waking up with coffee or juice on the balcony each morning and watching the sun set over the Pacific each night.
We wholeheartedly endorse this condo, and found it to be a great value for everything you get."
