We loved staying in this property & we were the only ones using the pool twice a day. Disappointed by the low number of turtles but at least we saw one. The construction noise from renovations to the unit next door was annoying when we were there during the week but the workers were very understanding about keeping the door closed. The condo had everything we needed and was clean.
Great location and great setup for family. Owners have everything you could need for a few days on the beautiful Kona coast. Great hopping off point to see the Big Island. Thank you!
We had a wonderful three week stay at this great property. Went swimming every day at the pool. Went to numerous beaches on the west side of the island.
The property is in need of some maintenance, the ocean takes its toll on the metal, but nothing we couldn’t deal with.
The owner was very easy to work with.
Best Location! Best View! Amazing Condo!! Don’t miss a stay here...didn’t want to leave!!!
For anyone looking for the perfect home-base for your Hawaiian vacation, this is it! We debated where to stay on the island, north of Kona or here...couldn’t be happier with our decision!! We had friends stay north, they missed out on phenomenal views, restaurant and shopping convenience and so very close to all the best snorkeling spots! We traveled with our two teenage girls...set up was perfect! We NEVER ran out of hot water, what a treat! The lanai was our favorite morning spot to watch the kayakers, surfers and of course the dolphins! We could even see yellow tang when the waves would curl. Tge sound of the ocean was so peaceful and relaxing, I miss it! The tide pools are fun to explore in the morning, be sure to walk all the way around to the right. A small beach entrance with a massive tide pool! Thankful the owners left an outside bin with bodyglove shoes for walking the lava rocks around the pools. Also, there were body boards that my kids used on several beaches! The owners have fully stocked the condo with paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags and plenty of condiments and seasonings! We were super excited with the selection and sizes of coolers we could borrow...we had lots of beach front picnics (go to Manini beach and bring a picnic lunch)! The binoculars were fabulous for watching the dolphins. Our number one concern in our initial booking was the absence of A/C...we’re from Texas, so we were concerned. Let me put all of you at ease...it was perfect! We never missed the A/C, never was an issue! Also, I want to point out the closet space was incredible! You won’t be living out of 2 drawers and your suitcase, what a pleasant surprise! It was perfect! In case you haven’t fingered it out, book here! One important side note, rent a 4 wheel drive car from Harpers for your stay...especially if you want to summit Mauna Kea). We truly had an amazing vacation and never wanted to leave. It was hard saying goodbye to our fabulous oceanfront condo and view! Things not to miss:
Snorkeling everywhere you can (especially around Cook’s monument/ the Bay), malasadas (Portuguese doughnuts in Punalu’u Bakeshop), black sand beach, Hilo, Hāpuna beach, Captain Cook roadside market, Kona ice, Hawaiian cheeseburgers...list goes on! Aloha, friends!
As so many others have stated, the view is the best part of this beautiful condo. The beds were so comfortable and the linens were the high thread count type that feel like silk. Loads of provided amenities. The tidal pools right in front of the condo are full of colorful fish and even eels. I would stay here again in a heartbeat in spite of the minor drawbacks. I'm only 5 ft 1, the cupboards must have been designed for NBA players. The microwave was so far above my head I had to use the provided step stool to get my coffee cup if it stopped at the back. The coffee table is a knee or shin hazard. We moved it after we all bumped into it, and rearranged a few things for more comfortable tv viewing to catch the news in the morning. Not much seating for 4, 3 must sit on the couch and look to the far left to see the tv, but we didnt watch much. We also would have loved to had a 2nd table inside, as the stools were not comfortable for very long.The late afternoon sun is intense outside. The neighbors all seemed to have blinds for that, and we met a couple of them and they were so friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful, we so enjoyed the big island, and we would stay here again! It has a lot more positives then negatives.
Great location and overall amenities.
Thanks again for a great stay in HI. Condo was just as advertised, great location and accommodations. Only feedback for improvement is the left hand sliding glass door needs some lube to eliminate a very high pitched squeel as it closes and the main door sliding screens need some TLC improvements. Very minor given the beautiful setting, location and overall amenities. Would stay again. Thank you.
Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay at Hale Pohaku. I'm sorry about the sliding door- it will definitely be fixed. I look forward to your return stay at our condo.
Mahalo and best regards,
