"We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren at the Dolphin House in June. What a perfect place for a family reunion! We loved the location. It was close to Kona for souvenir shopping, grocery shopping and occasional meals. We also loved the wall of windows that opened up the living area to become open air. Most of our time was spent at the beautiful marble table on the lanai. We spent time there with coffee in the morning, lunch, happy hour and dinner! We walked to the sandy cove beach (which was perfect for the children) and walked the stone wall path to see the blowhole and the sunsets (although the sunsets are also seen from the patio.)
We did attend a Hawaiian Festival at the north end of the island and the 30-somethings went on the Night-time Manta Ray Dive.
We used the chauffeur from the airport, which was a wonderful way to be welcomed to Hawaii. We also had two Hertz cars delivered.
Thank you, Nicole, for all the assistance from where we could rent baby equipment to recommending a professional photographer for a family photo! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. We'd love to return soon!"

"Let me start with saying we enjoyed our stay and have no complaints about the unit. But somethings we did not realize was this unit is small and no real cooking facilities except for a microwave and electric skillet. We usually cook all our meals to keep dining out costs low, so this is a bit of a disappointment.
The unit is more of a studio than a one bedroom condo. The bathroom has no sink and the kitchenette sink is tiny for doing dishes. When washing dishes be careful with your water use because the water runs to the back of the counter and can easily get on to the floor. I think it is the slope of the counter top.
Also, there is a community grill, but a lot of the tenants use it so the gas runs out quite fast. We couldn't cook our dinner a couple of nights because we cooked later in the evening. So, if you do grill, do it early.
Parking is limited so if you aren't in before 7:00 p.m. you might end up looking for on street parking and having to walk a bit back to the complex.
Kona offers various farmers market shopping opportunities so do a Google search on what is available. The one nearest to the condo looks a little like a homeless camp and sometimes the product is over-riped and over the years I notice the prices have creeped up quite a bit and the quality is not as good as it used to be. So, do a little homework before you arrive.
Again, overall the unit worked well for us and we have no complaints. We enjoyed our time and the coffee shops nearby are great - Island Lava Java and Daylight Cafe are both worth visiting."

"The apartment has a wonderful view on the ocean and it was highly above my expectations. Me, Marco, my son and my mother spent almost 2 weeks there and the whole apartment was comfortably equipped to have great time on holiday.
I don't know if I'll be lucky enough to be back in Hawai'i in the future but, if I am, I'll come again to your wonderful place."
