  • Perfect for Family

    "The condo provided the perfect location and accomodations for our family's Spring Break vacation. The three bedrooms and two baths provided plenty of room for our teenagers, in a quiet location. From the third floor balcony, we enjoyed great views of the ocean, whale watching, and beautiful sunsets. There is a beautiful beach across the street, and you are only 5-15 minutes away from additional pristine beaches, hiking locations, and shopping centers. The General Store next door stocks your basic grocery items, as well as many fresh specialty items and friendly sales associates. We appreciated all of the comforts of home and recreational gear, with the well stocked inventory of boogey boards, beach chairs & towels, snorkel gear, cooler, kitchen appliances and dishes, linens, travel guides, and more. We enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves and waking up to the sounds of tropical birds. The pool is warm and clean and the grounds are well maintained and inviting, with a variety of tropical plants and flowers. The reserved parking space was a bonus, and the owners were a pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend this condo, when visiting the Big Island."

  • Spectacular view

    "The condo was perfect and we had more room than we needed. Clean, well-equipped and well maintained with a serviceable kitchen and updated bathrooms (3!) You might be tempted to bring various things but you don't need to. There were plenty of high quality beach towels, beach chairs, even a beach umbrella. Previous guests had left behind enough staples and condiments to make it easy to cook, and you can get groceries right next door, although the food land in Mauna Lani was cheaper. The building manager was lovely and put a small bouquet of flowers in the elevator every day. It's also super close to two of the best beaches we've ever experienced., Hapuna and Beach 69, and easy driving distance to charming farmers' markets in Waimea. But it's all about the view. We whale/sunset watched and star gazed on the balcony, then watched the sunrise from the back gallery. Just spectacular."

  • Wonderful beach house!

    "We spent two weeks at the Honu House, celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The home was very clean, functional and fully stocked with all essentials! The path to the secluded beach was very short, and the beach itself was perfect - just what the doctor ordered! We would definately stay here again should we return to the Big Island! 2Papayas, the property management company, was wonderful and always responsive to questions - including those related to places to go and where to find the best local food, etc."

  • Great Location

    "This property is located on one of the best beaches on the Big Island. The property its self is large and there's plenty of room for a family of 7-8 also there are two structures in the property so if you have teenagers or extended family it's perfect. Overall, the home was well equipped with the exception of an worn out but fixable BBQ and the concerige service and gift basket both were a nice touch. However, there seems to be a communication problem with the managers of the property as we did not receive a code to enter the gated property which resulted in our family being harassed by the belligerent neighbour. The home was very clean but it needs maintenance as on the last couple of days of our trip the upper bathtub/shower started leaking through the roof into the kitchen. As I mentioned before the BBQ was in disrepair but we fixed it and the beach equipment, specifically chairs were also pretty worn so we ended up renting our own. The outdoor area was clean as they use a landscaping company to keep the place tidy we were told by the manager that the garbage would be taken care of by the landscapers but we only saw them on the day we arrived, as a result the garbage was not picked up for two weeks. We are not sure as to why there was so many communication problems during our stay perhaps it was the Christmas break that caught everyone off guard but I have to mention that after the 2nd event with the neighbour I called the property manager and she apologized on behalf of the neighbour and acknowledged that she had forgotten to send us the information for the gate. For our departure I sent a email to the manager asking what we could do to assist the cleaners and we followed the simple instructions I had sent her a reply indicating our concerns garbage and leaking roof but I did not receive a response. I must emphasize how great this location is and we believe that with the proper attention to both the administrative and physical deficiences of this property it would be a fantastic experience. We did not focus on the negative while we were there and I suppose I could have made more calls to the manager regarding the garbage, the neighbour, beach equipment, leaking roof and BBQ but because we had our elderly parents with us we wanted to mitigate the problems by correcting what we could ourselves and enjoy the moment, which we did. We think it's a great property but more attention to detail is needed. Thanks The Patterson's"
