"Great fully stocked condo! WiFi, kitchen has all the basics, good size shower (good water pressure! ). Bed could use a new mattress and can't see water from inside the unit. Otherwise perfect for our honeymoon. The condo is located about 3 miles from town, 10 miles from airport, so rental car is a must. Trolley service is $2/ride but comes every 2 hours, bus even less. Great many beach access points and parks within walking distance. Minimart also nearby."

The property manager was adequately helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves was fantastic. The unit is older, but we didn't really spend much time inside apart from the main bedroom which has a huge sliding door that opens onto the lanai."

"We were very pleasantly surprised when we entered the condo. Looks like new carpeting and the layout was inviting and relaxing. We opened everything up to let the ocean breezes come in to the unit and it cooled off almost immediately. They do have fans throughout the unit to help you stay cool in the bathroom and at night. We left the lanai doors open all the time we were in the unit because we loved the sound of the ocean and the breeze. The unit had everything for cooking (BBQ downstairs) and better, yet, everything to take to the beaches for your enjoyment.
We arrived late afternoon after going to Costco and decided we would get food from Da Poke Shack on the complex and enjoy it from our lanai. The food at da Schack is great. Then we walked along the rocks and the ocean. There are a lot of fun tide pools adjacent to the complex, and bits of sad here and there. The locals were surfing just to the north of the building and it was fun to watch. Kailua is really close by so shopping is easy, and it is still far enough away that you feel separated from the hustle and bustle.
We had a couple of hiccups (wrong combo to the lock but called Lisa and easily solved) and the parking space that is listed on the VRBO for the unit isn't actually assigned to anyone--you can park anywhere that is not reserved. Don't forget to check in at the front desk when you arrive, we didn't realize we were supposed to for a couple of days, but no big deal.
Beach recommendations include Hapuna for surf and sun, and the City of Refuge for snorkeling...neither can be beat. Also, a HUGE thumbs up to night snorkeling with the giant manta's. It was fantastic. We used Hang Loose boat tours, and couldn't have had a better experience! (I have SCBUA'd all over the world and dealt with many organizations, and this was one of the best!).
We had great main Tai's at the Kona Inn and Jackie Rey's--great food at both and a lot of locals. One more recommendation is the Fish Bowl (AKA Sundried Products) if you go North to the Coffee plantations or snorkeling at the City of Refuge.
All in all, the unit is in an incredible location, and the sunsets every night were amongst the best we have seen anywhere in the world! When we come back, we will definitely stay here again..."

"This is a terrific unit and great value for the location. We loved it was a corner unit with a fantastic view of the ocean. We spent almost every evening watching the sunset from there. One of our favorite things while hanging out at the lanai is to watch the green turtles coming ashore to sun themselves.
The unit has everything we needed. It's convenient to the places we want to visit. Holly was great to work with in arranging the rental. We would consider this unit again if we were to visit the Big Island in the future."
