Great accommodations and location
We stayed at Banta Hale with another couple for six weeks. (Feb/March '18) Everything we needed was there - each couple had their own bedroom and bath which we all found comfortable. We had occasion to use the sleeper sofa which was surprisingly comfortable. We didn't want or need to use the AC; there are ceiling fans as well as additional fans available. We liked the windows open to enjoy the sounds of the waves. We ate every meal on the deck. The kitchen had most everything we needed. (We contributed a 12 cup coffeemaker, the Keureg wasn't practical with four serious coffee drinkers)
The condo building has a great pool, hot tub. pool table and grills available. The location was perfect - close enough to get to downtown Kona by trolley (stops right by building), rental bikes or car - but not too close to the crowds and bustle of that area. The unit's parking spot is even convenient - close to the elevator - nice for carrying up groceries, etc.
There's a snorkeling beach a mile down Ali'i Drive. You are right across the street from Magic Sands Beach where we'd go for a morning dip or to watch the sunset. But it's a small beach that can get crowded during the day. We used the condo's beach chairs, boogie boards, towels and cooler for day trips to the beautiful beaches north of Kona.
Keahou shopping center is a quick car drive south of the condo - everything you'd need is there. We made a few trips to Costco or Walmart for staples. Not many restaurants within walking distance but we cooked at the condo a lot and had a few special dinners out. The Big Island is amazing - you definitely a need a car to take incredible day trips and then back to the condo to enjoy an evening swim. We feel fortunate to have had a long stay on the Big Island at Banta Hale. It's a really great place at a very reasonable rate. We didn't need to contact Gary for anything; but I'm confident he would have responded quickly if we had. He was very pleasant to work with.
Thank you for this thorough, descriptive, kind review. We're glad you had a good stay and found the condo to be all you needed. Your advice to other travelers is well offered, and we would second it. We would be happy to welcome you back some time.
Excellent place to stay!
Well stocked, clean condo that is close to several beaches. It’s terrific to wake up to the birds singing, waves crashing and sunshine!
A great holiday home
The condo was just perfect for 3 of us for our 2 week stay. It was well equipped, comfortable, well located in Kona. The large smart TVs were great and allowed us to watch movies on my Netflix account. The lanai was terrific especially since the sunscreens could be lowered to save us from the sun. The owner was very responsive and the price was fair. The pool and BBQ common area were great. Mahalo for a great stay.
Very nice place, well recomended!
Apartament very good, exactely as the descrition! I will try to come back for sure.
Great location and wonderful stay!
Clean, comfortable, well-stocked condo, particularly the kitchen. We had most everything we needed, including beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and even a coat for Mauna Kea. It was nice to have a relaxing breakfast on the big open lanai most mornings and then take off exploring. There were lots of fans in addition to A/C that we did need to use at night; we were thankful for that as some units apparently don't have A/C. We loved having a washer/dryer available as we were able to cut down on packing beforehand. Great location near "downtown" Kona. We were right across the street from White Sands Beach. Turtles would come very close and even bump into you! We highly recommend renting a car as it would be hard/expensive to use Uber to see everything on the island or go out for dinner. Take note of the rule book: you'll need to make time to strip the beds and start a load of laundry before you leave. We didn't mind doing so since we didn't have to rush off for an early flight out; just not something I'd been asked to do at a VRBO when a cleaning fee was included. Overall, very nice stay and recommended!
