They place was clean and comfortable. Walking distance to Alii drive(10 minutes) made this location very good. The pool was clean and refreshing. On site property manager was very helpful. There is a few flights of stairs to access the condo, so be aware of this.
Awesome place, all you need is there!
This condo is literally right down street from Downtown of Kona. Nice walking distance from baby beach,next to iron man pier. Magic send beach 15 min driving. Each time we went out on this bay we saw 15-30 varieties of fish.The unit within a mile of shopping center, Grocery Store, Drug Store local farms market, restaurants and more. A short walk from the busiest area of Alii drive so this area is relatively quiet. We had the pool to ourselves for most of the stay. The pictures are not lying, some ocean view is form linai and sunsets amazing from this condo. There are boogie boards in the storage area as well as fins for the kids. Plenty enough cooking and eating utensils and a grill next to pool if you decide to cook out. I read previous review about mattresses, we party of 6, had no issue to sleep, mattresses are new, very clean, and I believe the covers are from Costco with that special body remembering ))) foam, very comfy. All kitchen cook wear bran new, nice white sheets, clean pillows, blankets. Very neat, clean place. We had enough supplies for all our days we staid. Irina's respond was within 15 min, she clearly explained all about PayPal payments, security deposits, we had no issue with any deposits, or refunds. She communicates over the phone and emails. Check in check out procedures are so easy and convenient.
This is our fifth time of traveling to Kona and staid at her unit.
Thank you Laura for nice review. Hope see you soon.
Good location; had the basics
The best part of this place is the walkability to downtown. We walked several times, there, including New Year's Eve. Irina, the host, was responsive to us about the reservation via email and effectively gave instructions for payment and check-in, etc. The apartment itself is pretty basic, but had the minimums you need for a stay. For us, it was a bit tight as part of our party was in the living room. But, we heard that the sleeper sofa was pretty comfortable from those that slept on it. Apartment has dishes, fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker, laundry detergent for one load, dishwasher. We had to buy garbage bags and more paper towels, as there weren't extra after using one. So, supplies were a bit minimal. We couldn't lock the deck siding doors, which lead into the bedroom and living room, which left us feeling a bit vulnerable, as people can walk right by the deck. The beds were a bit stiff and jiggly, so had a bit of a hard time sleeping. There isn't air conditioner, but the ceiling fans and opening the deck doors when we came in cooled it pretty well in the evening. We weren't in the apartment much during the day, but I think it would be too hot. It was nice to have some beach toys, including boogie boards, umbrella, and we did use them. The apartment has a few weird light switch configurations (behind the door, behind the fridge), so you have to kind of figure out what switch turns on what light/fan for a couple days. It also is a bit aged. The unit does come with a parking spot, which was helpful.
I think for the price, this is a good place to stay with the basics and good location. It is a bit minimalistic and quirky, so just know that when you reserve.
Thank you Laura for nice review. Usually house keeper does supply extra roll of kitchen towel and toilet paper for some one who stays more then 7 days. For short term like you stay 5 days usually was enough and I did not have any compline from others. She usually leave for short stay one new roll to each bathroom and kitchen towel and roll of garbage bags are under the sink. You should call me to ask for help to locate staff and switches.
I will definitely ask her to leave more.
Also , you are more then welcome to contact me at my phone for any questions, or conserns.
Great location, Easy Access, Large Unit.
The unit was large, very clean and had all the basic requirements. The beds and linens were comfortable. It is very easy to find and has great access to all the main highways, shopping and tourist locations. The building is clean, well maintained and other renters very friendly. We did make use of lawn chairs and float boards for the beach. Owner was very quick to respond to queries and concerns and refunded deposit very timely. Unfortunately, there really isn't WIFI. You are using the WIFI of the University next door and can only get if you sit out on the balcony and then it is only 1 or 2 bars. We enjoyed our two week stay and really had no specific complaints. We have used VRBO on 5 other occasions and were surprised that this unit did not not stock the very basic requirements - salt/pepper, seasonings, oil, etc. Not sure if we lucked out in the other units and this is the norm. This was the first time we have had to purchase all condiments and seasonings. There was adequate dishwashing, laundry and toiletry supplies.
Thank you Diane for nice review. Regarding food supplies , salt, pepper and oil, unfortunately it is a food and I can't supply, you never know who used it and what tenants can put in stead oil or salt. So sorry, but I would not take a rick on it. Regarding WIFI, we did addressed several times to internet company, they stated that every thing working find. I will contact them again, thank you for you concern.
The location is perfect for walking to Kona shopping district and very nice location for driving to sights on the island. Everything was what we expected and easy to work with the owner.
Thank you very much Bev , hope see you soon.
What a wonderful Christmas Vacation
This did us just perfectly. Nicely remodeled and everything you could want. Irina was an extremely friendly. I never used VRBO, I was not sure how it works. Irina called me right a way and she did explain, step by step.I would highly recommend this condo. Lovely gardens filled with Hibiscus and Plumeria. Overall a Top Property and loved our stay. As mentioned Irina is a superb host. All beading was very clean. She called and asked after our arrival, how clean is the unit and do we need any thing else for our comfort stay. IHer service is outstanding.
Thank you Irina, we would highly recommend your unit.
