"My family just returned home from staying at this condo. The condo is beautiful, well maintained and has everything you need. The balcony has incredible views of the water and the resort. The transaction with the owner was very smooth and he was full of useful information about the surrounding area. Our only regret was we couldn't stay longer! We will be back!"

"If you're going to visit Breck, then you may as well be IN Breck. This condo location is ideal, allowing you to park your car once, and walk everywhere, including the slopes, restaurants (including the crepe cart), the grocery store, the sledding hill, and even the dog park....which is another advantage - Jeff allows pets. The place is quiet, has awesome views from the top floor, and perhaps most important, the beds are quality and comfortable. I highly recommend this property."

"We were lucky. We DID spend the whole month of Feb. 2015 in this lovely house:screen and natural materials instead of glass windows,and smooth wood floors that are wonderful on bare feet, high ceilings with fans to keep the air flowing, and authentic south pacific crafts and art and upholstery colors (greens) that give the house an organic tropical feel and create a soothing environment. We loved the small touches:having battery candles on the lanai so that we could see to eat every meal there.
We enjoyed having friends come to visit who could use the snorkel & and beach equipment that is provided (we bring our own for size and comfort). We used the portable beach chairs almost every day to have our sundownders (POG & rum) down at Manini beach.
We prefer living in a village to a resort. We rented in Opo'opo'o a couple of years ago when we also rented another house in south Kona. We have seen several others. This was our favorite and we hope to rent it again.
We appreciated the true hospitality and advice Karen provided and the insight on the house, the art, and local beaches provided by Mel in the many email conversations we had.
I achieved my heart's desire and swam with the dolphins at 2 step. We watched the surf reports every day to plan our snorkeling. Winter brings surf and makes getting into the water more difficult at some beaches. We took two boat trips we enjoyed: Hula Kai (a south kona snorkel on a new boat with good shade and smaller groups) and Fair Wind to Capt. Cook. On both trips we liked seeing whales and a 'pack' of hammerhead sharks, and being on the boat as much as the snorkeling.
We love the garden of palms and other tropical trees that surrounds the house and gives it such a wonderful cool shady green tropical feel.
Not to be missed: The botanical garden, painted church and honey farm nearby. Star gazing at the Mauna Kea visitor center. Farmers market at Capt. Cook. We did a repeat visit the botanical garden north of Hilo and the Pesto Café there. Also always enjoy the Keei Café (and the beach) and the Thai Orchid (across from Costco) and Annie's and Huggo's on the Rocks happy hour.
We give this house a 5* for its price range. It Is not fancy and doesn't have a view of water and there is some noise from the road, but as has been mentioned it IS a village and quite a few drivers use the road in front of the house to travel south to the transfer station and the City of Refuge...which is a very special place not to be missed."

"Mahalo Gordon! We had a wonderful holiday on the Big Island and your beautiful condo was the icing on the cake! Hali’i Kai is an amazing resort and we are so thrilled we found your condo. It is so lovely inside and has everything one could ever need; however, we spent most of our time on the lanai just relaxing and enjoying the fabulous view! It was perfect – which is why we booked again for next year!!! Aloha"
