Some good things, some not so good things

  • 3 of 5


-close to everything on Ali’i Drive which has numerous bars/restaurants

-the condo is fully equipped with many unexpected extras (beach chairs, boogie boards, kitchen items)

-the view is wonderful and the sunsets are amazing


-had to pay extra for the AC and it could barely cool the place. It was very humid during our stay and for us, AC was a must. Hint - closing the bedroom door will at least keep this room tolerable for sleeping

-the AC ventilation fan is located on the deck which makes sitting out on the deck quite hot if there is no breeze. Many other condos in the building have fans on the deck and I can see why

-I’ve stayed in quite a few VRBO’s and I’ve never seen check out rules like this place. Make sure you read it and know what you’re to do or there will be a penalty to be paid (like we had to)

-there is a pool, but it’s not heated so nobody uses it

-major work was being done directly in front of the building . There was jackhammering every day we stayed there

We won’t be back.

Owner's Response: Deborah, I am sorry to hear the A/C was not cooling as normal. I wish you had contacted me, as I would have sent a repair person out immediately, or had my on site manager check that you were using the unit correctly (our numbers are in our guest information book). I was there a month ago and it was cooling fine, but will have someone check it as it is only a year old, and I have it serviced regularly. Normally, as long as all the lanai doors and windows are kept shut, it cools very well and I normally turn it down at night as it gets too cold. All of the a/c units are on each lanai, as it is the only authorized location to place them, per the HOA. Most people while sitting on the lanai, do not run the A/C as they have the lanai doors wide open to enjoy the seabreeze, so I have never heard this concern. There were additional cleaning charges, as the housekeeper said there was additional time needed to clean the unit after your stay, I only charge the exact fees she charges me. I looked into the noise and it appears the county is doing some work on the street/sidewalk, which unfortunately occurred during the time you stayed. Please always let any owner know of any repair issues or other concerns. We have people who can come and fix items if broken and certainly do not want things not working properly. I personally care that things are done right and your visit enjoyable. Carol

The property was great! We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

The bed was comfortable which is really important. I loved hearing the ocean. Awesome view. Only needed the AC about 2 days and that was mainly to keep the baby from trying to go out on the balcony.

Cross ventilation and ceiling fans keep it cooled off. It was great being able to do laundry also!

I come to Hawaii once a year to see my grandchildren and I definitely recommend unit 404 it was a lot like home.

Great location & greater host!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo. The location is great with amazing view & the unit is very clean & every little thing that we needed was ready for us in the unit. The owner was even greater & very accommodating. We loved our stay & highly recommend it to eveyone. If we ever comeback to this beautiful island, this is where we will stay.

Fully Stocked and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 9 days and loved that it was located right in downtown Kona. We watched the 4th of July fireworks off the lanai and felt like we had the best seat possible. The condo had everything you would need and was very clean and well cared for. We would not hesitate to recommend this condo to friends and family and look forward to staying there again next year!

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

You cannot beat this location. You are right on the ocean and can fall asleep listening to the waves crashing at night. We walked along Ali'i Drive multiple times a day as it is lovely to walk along the coast. There are shops and restaurants right there if you are wishing to go out for some money spending fun.

The condo is beautifully decorated, tidy and offers all the amenities you will need. There are boogy boards, 4 beach chairs and beach towels. The condo complex itself was quiet and respectful so we had no concerns with anyone interrupting our sleep etc. You are however limited in the number of dishwasher tabs so heads up. Not a huge deal but you will need to start washing dishes if you don't "do the math".

We needed to contact the property manager and was provided with a timely response and a quick resolution which was appreciated.

Enjoy your stay! We did!
