Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in the heart of Kona, this fourth (top) floor unit has views of the ocean and the mountains. The sunrise over the mountains is spectacular but you won't want to miss the sunset over the ocean either. The complex is across the street from the ocean on the main street, Alii Drive, that runs along the shoreline of Kailua-Kona. Close to the pier where they have Luau's, dinner cruises, and where other water activities originate. Close to shopping and restaurants and other attractions.

Our unit is fully equipped with everything you'll need for a short or an extended stay. With a queen-size bed in one bedroom, a full-size bed in the other bedroom and a queen-size sofa-sleeper in the living room, the unit will sleep a maximum of six adults comfortably. It also has 2 full bathrooms and a stacked washer and dryer. The complex has underground, secure parking with elevators to your floor.There is also access to the mall on Alii Drive through the door to the left when you exit the elevator with a large Aloha mural on the wall. Your pool/elevator key fits this door also. So no worries when you are ready to return home, you do not have to walk around to the front door. or carry the garage remote with you. The fourth floor has a large common sun deck that over looks the historical Church of King Kameamea, Alii Drive shops and restaurants as well as the Pier. Just on the other side of the pier is the Luau pit and seating, on Luau nights you can watch the fire dancers perform for their guests. The Lanai is equipped with propane BBQ grills, chairs and tables for a 10 to 15 person get together. The unit also has a large lanai itself, with a table that seats 6. The railing is screened so nothing can get through and fall on the patio below. Everything is in short walking distance so park your car and walk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha David! Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your condo in Kona. It fit our needs perfectly and we particularly enjoyed the large lani. I hope we will have a chance to use it again in the future. Enjoy your future time there. How lucky to have such a beautiful place to go to! Thank you for listing it on VRBO! Aloha,

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Really can't beat the location for ease of getting around. Cozy and comfortable and had everything you might need. Also very impressed with how quiet the complex was. Would definitely stay there again.

Do not rent from this owner. You get what you pay for-cheep/run down/horrible customer service

  • 1 of 5

The unit is not cared for at all, not sure when the owner has actually been there. If they had I would hope they would want to make their condo better not just for themselves to stay in but others as well. They attempted to make an upgrade by slapping on new counter tops in the kitchen and the bathrooms but the doors and cabinets are so old it just looks bad. The carpet is horribly dirty and in reality should be taken out and replaced with tile or something else. My brother rented a separate unit in the complex and night and day compared to this one. Much nicer, more modern and obviously cared for. The unit can sleep 4 but there were only 3 beach towels. Two bathrooms only 1 bathmat. If you sit on the lani in the morning expect twice a week to be greeted by the garbage truck. The smell is horrible that you can't sit on the lani while they are dealing with the trash. You can see the ocean but your real view is of the alley. The unit is situated so that you can't see the sunsets as well.

My biggest complaint is about the owner and their failure to communicate. The only way we were able to get the access codes to the unit was by involving VRBO customer support and even then she wouldn't provide us with the codes until 2 days before we traveled. We have rented through VRBO several times before and this was the first time we encountered this. Even then once we got to the unit at 8:00 pm the code she gave us didn't work. We had to call her and she had to issue another code. Thankfully she picked up the phone.

The other significant issue was the owner notified us that the washer/dryer was broke in the unit and they were trying to get it replaced by the time we arrived. I sent an email asking if there was a laundry mate in the area we might be able to use. No response. After we got there I sent an email asking for a status on the washer/dryer. She stated that it was now not going to be replaced until May 31st because she couldn't get anyone to deliver it. Within that email she indicated she would reimburse us for the cost of doing the laundry. I sent the owner two separate emails asking about the reimbursement and as typical this person's communication style-zero response. We stayed for 2 full weeks, we brought enough clothes for 7 days but going to the beach everyday and taking a shower after meant dirty towels with no means to wash them-gross. The owners lack of response to make it right-not cool. Rent at own risk.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It was obvious to me a month or more before you came that there would be a review like this. I contacted you more than a month before your arrival and let you know about the washer/dryer not working, giving you the option to cancel your reservation and find somewhere else more accommodating to you. As far as answering your attempts to contact me after the 10th one inquiring about the washer/dryer and trying to explain to you that things do not move on the island as they do in the mainland cities. I have no control over when the boats come in with shipments for the Islands. It clearly states in the contract that the door codes will be sent out during the week prior to your arrival, and thats exactly what happened. And as for my not having been there recently you are correct. My husband just passed in September from Pancreatic cancer and at 81 years old I chose not to travel by myself. Since my husband took care of all of this I am sure things have fallen in disarray, but not to the extent you are trying to portray. Mahalo

Miserable stay, no response/help from owner

  • 2 of 5

The building's air-conditioning was down our entire stay, which is not the owner's fault. Of the three portable fans in the unit, only one was blowing air that could be felt. You could sit in front of the other 2 fans and sweat and not feel any air at all. We emailed the owner our plight, but received no acknowledgement or response.

Location, facilities, cleanliness were all good. If nothing goes wrong, great. But if there is a problem don't expect a response. We would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: I received no email about the air not working. All you needed to do was call my on island contact/housekeeper and let her know. Something would have been done about it. I am sorry you had less than enjoyable stay.The complex is currently attempting to change over to individually operated air conditioning units to alleviate this problem in the future. Mahalo

I love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here twice now and plan on renting this place again next year too. Big comfortable condo in a perfect location with a fantastic lanai. The owner Carolyn is great to work and does a wonderful job of making sure everything goes smoothly.
