Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful 2 weeks in your condo. The location is great and we ate all our meals out on the lanai looking at the ocean! Slept with the windows open to listen to the waves.

If we ever go back (I hope we do) we will definitely try booking your condo again. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Great Stay and Best Location

  • 5 of 5

Such a great location at this property. We really enjoyed everything about our trip and our accomadations were better than we could have hoped for. Clean and comfortable.

We were pleasantly surprised with what appeared to be new appliances and many extras such as spices, condiments, beach gear and coolers.

The owners were waiting on a new AC to be shipped from the mainland and gave us the option of refund if we didn't want to stay without the central air functioning 100%. They checked on us everyday to make sure the auxillary unit they had supplied was working for us. We appreciated their communication and between the central air fan and the portable AC, it was more than sufficient for us as we loved opening up the lanai doors to hear the waves from the beach.

We would recommend this unit to our friends and family. And hope to visit again soon.

Thank you Mark and Kira for the use of your home. Your hospitality and concern were much appreciated. Mahalo

Great Location, Awful Service

  • 1 of 5

Let me start by saying that the condo/amenities at the property and the location are great, but the owner's customer service was severely lacking. We arrived at the condo a little after check in time to find the thermostat in the unit reading 83 degrees. We didn't think much of it as it was possible that the A/C hadn't been on between guests. What we came to find out was that the A/C for the unit was broken. When we called the owner's they stated that they had purchased a window unit for one bedroom and fans for the rest of the condo and that a replacement part had been ordered and would arrive sometime in the next 30 days. One window unit is not a substitute for central A/C. The coldest the unit ever registered was 75 degrees and that was at 11pm at night. The owner's knew of this problem before our arrival and did not think it necessary to inform us of it. We all ended up sleeping in the small secondary guest room where the AC unit was located. Also, when we checked in the fridge and freezer were not cooling properly. We were told that they were fine and to give them time to cool down. Two days later we came back to the condo to find that the fridge had leaked all over the kitchen and in the hallway and would most likely need to be replaced. Finally, the welcome book in the condo stated that children who were not potty trained were not allowed in the pool. This would have been nice to know before we booked since we were traveling with a 2 year old. Would I stay in this complex again? Yes! Would I stay in this unit again? Yes, but only if it were under different ownership.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately this review is not an accurate account of the situation. Thank you for taking a moment to read our response. Unforeseen situations do occur but we are always available to respond and do our very best to work with our guests. We want a positive experience for them and their comfort and enjoyment is very important to us. With our guests arriving in less than 4 hours, we were notified by our agent that the air did not seem to be cooling as well as usual so we called our repair person in to look at it. He advised us that although working, it was struggling to cool past 73 and had become inefficient. New unit was ordered and sent from mainland. In the mean time we had our agent purchase a large portable AC unit and extra fans to help keep the air cool. We then unsuccessfully tried to advise the guests through their phone and email. At check in time we tried calling the land line in the condo many times to speak with the guests but were unable to reach them. Once we did speak to the guests we offered many possible solutions for them including a full refund as well as assistance in locating alternate accommodations. The guests chose to stay in the unit. We kept in contact with them for the first three days, checking to make sure that things were going more smoothly and to also discuss the refrigerator. They had thought it not to be working when they first came in and unloaded all of their food from the store. It takes a while for the whole refrigerator of warm items to cool. We sent out our agent immediately to check and were informed that the refrigerator was functioning properly. The ice was all frozen and the food was cooling. Once these issues seemed to be solved we advised them to contact us at any time if things changed. Fast forward a few days and they called to say the refrigerator was leaking. Our agent went back out within the hour and discovered that the refrigerator was still working fine but somehow the water dispenser handle had come off and the water was leaking from the dispenser. At this point we decided to replace the unit as it was more cost effective. New refrigerator has been installed with no damage charge to guests as a sign of our goodwill. We were under the impression from our many conversations with these guests that we had satisfied their concerns as they did not want to move to other accommodations. As our many other positive reviews show, we strive to be great hosts and not just owners. Mahalo for your understanding.

We totally enjoyed our stay. The place was clean, comfortable and the location was great!

  • 4 of 5

We were 2 couples in this condo and it was great having two full bathrooms so we didn't have to share. The beds were comfortable and clean. It was awesome to be right across the street from the beach. We enjoyed viewing the sunset from the balcony. Also, having the laundry on site was a definite bonus.

May I suggest the following that we thought were missing from the condo: BBQ tongs, tea towels, and paper towels or napkins.

We would definitely stay at this condo again if we came to Kona again!

Outstanding property and amenities, with outstanding service!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations. We had chosen it for the location and the view and both were fantastic. However, in addition, the condo is perfectly stocked for all vacationer needs on the big island. We really appreciated the supply of beach chairs, pool noodles, boogie boards, etc. As well the kitchen was well stocked with various spices and condiments.

The service from the owners is by far the best we have received. We had an issue getting the dishwasher to work and the owners responded immediately and actually had a new dishwasher installed in a couple of days with no impact to our holiday. Thank you for caring so much about us enjoying our time in your place!

If you are deciding between a couple of condos in this complex, choose this one! You will not be disappointed!
