Guestbook comments from the owner

The six days spent in your condo was a great home base to explore the Big Island. The condo was fabulous and had everything we needed. It was spacious and the beds were comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer. We really hope to come back.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 9 days and it was fantastic. The condo had everything we could possibly need and more. The location of the condo was also perfect. We were a short drive away from town and perfect snorkeling bays. I would highly recommend this condo and will be planning another stay here soon!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay! Erin was so welcoming and helpful. The condo is clean and comfortable. Erin really has everything you could possibly need ready for you. There was a pack'n'play available for our baby to sleep in, which was so convenient (less to bring on the plane!). We were able to make smoothies, cook meals, do our laundry, play games, read books, watch movies... she even has a huge box of beach gear! And the beach is literally across the street, no driving necessary! I highly recommend this rental for your next vacation.

Amazing location and every amenity you could dream of! Perfect launch pad for daily excursions!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad that we chose this wonderful condo #121 across from White Sands Beach! It had every amenity that we could have dreamed of… a well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, beach toys, snorkel gear and towels, BBQ, and most importantly, the perfect sized cooler so we could pack lunches everyday for our outings. Upon our arrival, a delightful bowl of chocolates welcomed us. We were also lucky enough to have a lovely palm tree in our view from the lanai that hosted regular geckos and an active nest with wonderful bird watching….who needs TV? We also made good use of the tennis racquets (court on site) and boogie boards for Magic Sands Beach (just across the street). When daily excursions to volcanoes, Hilo, Captain Cook, Kua Bay, Waikoloa & Kona Turtle Waching were done, the pool/Jacuzzi was our refuge. The laundry unit in condo allowed us to carry on instead of check luggage (sweet savings)! We found everyone to be exceptionally friendly in the complex and look forward to coming back again. Erin made everything so effortless and thought of all the details (even beach towels) so that we could truly enjoy our stay and not have to worry about a thing. She was very communicative and thorough with responses (yes, pool is enclosed for the safety of small children). We would absolutely book this unit again without hesitation. Mahalo & Blessings Erin!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything a family would need during a stay in Hawaii. Loved the location. Right on trolley line that takes you into downtown area. No need to drive.

We could watch the sunset every night and play on a beautiful sandy beach to our hearts content. Condo has everything you might need or want. It is clean and well kept. The pool and BBQ area were apreciated by all. Condo grounds are beautiful. Would highly recommend for families and would absolutely stay here again.

Great location and accommodations

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location near Kona Town but yet far enough away that the crowds aren't a problem. It was so nice to have a cooler and sand chairs available for use. We had everything we needed to just start enjoying our time there. The lanai was very comfortable, we had every meal we ate there on the lanai. We were concerned because the condo was one of the two buildings closer to the street but it was very quiet. Pool, BBQ area very convenient and at 10pm it was quiet. We liked the hard surface flooring in the condo, good addition. Thank you Erin for the welcome bowl of treats too.
