"This unit was quite comfortable for my stay in Kona and was a good value for the nightly rate. I really liked the privacy afforded by being on the ground floor with the plantings around the two sides of the lanai. Located on the end of the building and with the adjacent property beyond the lanai much lower, it really was quite private. I also noticed that units in the middle of the buildings only had one pair of doors out to the lanai, but maybe those were studio rather than 1 BR. This unit has two pairs of doors in the living room, and another single sliding door in the bedroom, so very nice additional airflow. Even though it was up to 90 degrees during the day, by late evening it had cooled off nicely and I felt safe keeping the glass doors open and screens closed for sleeping at night. I really don't like the sound of the air conditioners running, so only used those during the hottest part of the day. Even though this complex is on Ali'i drive, I was surprised at how quiet it was all through the night.
If you want a comfortable, quiet place to stay that has all the basics you need, this is a good choice. The kitchen has been upgraded not too long ago and is well equipped. The bed was comfortable. The unit was very clean."

"My daughter and her family stayed in this wonderful condo for ten days. Ocean view, pool by crashing waves, a big kitchen big enough for a party of twelve. . . this place was absolutely perfect. We were amazed at the size of the wrap around lanai. The parking spaces are within view of the unit. Great for reminding the kids to lock the car! Glen and Ginny made the stay better than we expected - Thank you!"

"This was my first time renting through VRBO and I was a bit concerned. However, Donna's home was a dream. This condo is in an ideal location and is just beautiful. It's beautifully decorated, clean and has everything you need. I fell in love with Hawaii and hope to come back soon. I will definitely book this home again. Thank you so much Donna."

"I thought it was odd that Doug used the picture of the pool as cover picture and unfortunately for us we didn't realize sooner the reason why. It is a beautiful and awesome spot to just hang out and relax!!! It was probably the smartest condo property set up we say along the shores around Kona. Having the common area with BBQ and then the pool right up against the shoreline for all renters to enjoy the waterfront is smart designing, yes, just like a resort!!!
Then the finish/set up and access including parking was a very good, especially for Doug's place. It was well equipped and furnished. For a couple it is was definitely awesome for the price (no it's not a 6 star resort room). Would be pretty decent for a couple with smaller kids that can share a room/bed. The bathroom would be just be a bit tight for everybody to be brushing their teeth in the morning.
The next great surprise for us was a great little coffee/breakfast place right next door (The Green Flash)!!!!! Wife loved the Lattes and the breakfast sandwiches were very tasty and nice pastries (early morning because seem to sell out) for the sweet tooth.
Then the location was perfect because close the center of things without being in the hustle. About a 20 minute walk to the edge of downtown on the well marked and maintained wallking/bike lane along Ali Drive. And central to access to most of the best beaches and snorkeling along the coast.
Even though we were told it is a laid back place to visit there were plenty of activities besides the beaches and pool to explore and experience. Especially the Volcano national park and the landscape and small towns on the north highway loop. The vastly changing landscapes and vegetation make it a beautiful drive.
The last and happily wonderful experience was managing the whole rental process with Doug in the private process. Doug was on top of all communications and while not as simple as just giving a CC online he made and managed things very smoothly including a very timely return of security deposit!!
Thanks so much Doug. We will definitely make any plans early should we return to the Big Island so we can secure this property. Wouldn't want to take a chance on any less enjoyable of an experience visiting this beautiful, safe, clean and welcoming home and vacation destination!!!"
