"We stayed at three vacation rentals during our stay on the Big Island (on different sides of the Island). This was by far - BY FAR - the best. The apartment is small, but we did not go to Hawaii to sit inside, so not a problem, and there was plenty of room for getting around, making quick meals, etc. The shower is pretty cramped for a guy my size, but it worked fine. The apartment is decorated very nicely - great Hawaiian theme, but not overdone.....just right. The lanai is terrific and offers a beautiful view of the grounds and ocean, which is just across the street. The bed was comfortable. The location can't be beat - right in the middle of the action on Alii street, but the grounds make it feel isolated from the hustle and bustle. Bubba Gumps right across the street. A lot of people have complained about parking, and since there are only enough parking spaces to accommodate about a third of the rooms, I understand why, but we never had any problem parking. The unit is very well stocked with everything you might need. While there is no beach right at the apartment, there are several up and down Alii street - short drives. There is a wonderful farmers market almost right next door. We walked to the Island Breeze Luau. It is just a great location. As for driving, we did a lot of that too, and it was easy to get everywhere from the apartment. Kona is pretty small with only a few main streets, so it doesn't take long to learn how to navigate. I was amazed at how conveniently we were located to everything in town. The only real bad thing is it is on the second floor and thre is no elevator, which was a bit of a problem for my wife as she has a bad back. Communication with the owners was EXCELLENT and everything was exactly as described. Very kind people. The price was reasonable. I really hope we have an opportunity to stay here again. I do not believe we would even consider staying anywhere else. My very favorite thing about this condo, and maybe my favorite part of the whole trip, was opening the lanai door at night when we went to bed and listening to the ocean surf crash against the rocks as I drifted off to sleep. It was absolutely amazing. I even recorded about 10 minutes of it just so I can replay it now that I am back at home."

"We stayed here for 4 nights and left very happy. Our party was 5 adults.
The location is walking distance to tons of restaurants, bars and the beach. 2 of the 3 bedrooms have an ocean view (minor obstruction by a church below).
There are ceiling fans everywhere (which we used constantly to combat the heat), spare towels and beach gear.
The kitchen is well stocked and there was nothing we were missing during our stay. There are useful items left either by the owner or by previous renters (plastic wrap for food, hydrogen peroxide, minor household items that you might suddenly need).
There's only one parking spot assigned so plan accordingly. You have quick and easy access to the HWY and there's a grocery store just up the street.
The owner is very responsive and quickly addressed all of our concerns.
I could not find a better rental for anywhere close to the price we paid and we would absolutely stay here again if needed."
