  • A home away from home in paradise

    "I recommend Larry and Trisha’s place If you are looking for a home away from home in paradise. - Larry and Trisha seemed to anticipate our needs. Prior to our arrival they sent information about the island, the condo and the surrounding area. On our day of arrival, they touched base with us to make sure we knew how to get into the condo. We were welcomed with a bowl of fresh lemons and limes. We arrived late at night and had a question. Larry responded to our text and followed up with a call to make sure we had everything we needed. - The condo was sparking clean with updated kitchen, bathrooms and flooring. We spent a month at the condo to vacation and for me to practice working from home from Hawaii. We had everything we needed from the loft office, kitchen, bathroom and laundry. - We ate outside on the lanai that overlooks a golf course and the ocean. We grilled out almost every night when we ate at home. Watching the sunsets never got old. - We hosted friends for 10 days during our stay and the condo was plenty big enough for the four of us. We could have easily accommodated another couple upstairs. - The condo was equipped with extras for us to enjoy from a shelf of books, dvds, games and jig saw puzzles. I love doing puzzles at the beach and completed two of them during our stay. Larry stopped by on our second day to meet us and spent time reviewing the best beaches and snorkel locations on the island. We had a great time exploring his suggestions. - The condo is located within walking distance to the Sheraton that has a wonderful luau. There is also a farmers market on Wednesdays on the grounds of the Sheraton with food and locally made goods. - There are so many different beaches and bays, we tried a different one almost every other day. In the afternoons we headed to the pool for a refreshing dip and a soak in the hot tub. In the evenings, the complex has a quiet time from 10pm to 8am which makes sleeping with all the windows open a plus. I loved waking up to the singing birds as the sun rose on the other side of the mountain. - The condo is in a great location south of Kona only 30 minutes or less from the airport depending on the time of day. The Costco is 20 minutes away and was stocked with local produce and fresh fish. The gas price at Costco was the lowest we found on the island with extended hours. There is a grocery store, movie theater, and multiple restaurants less than 2 miles from the condo."

  • Good place. Great value.

    "We stayed 10 days. The view was great of the crashing waves, the pool and jacuzzi,, and even the center well-kept garden. View of sunset requires one minute walk to common area, not from lanai. Very quiet, didnt see young kids. They had snorkel gear, but we had brought our own. Good security for parking. One mile from everything in Kailua. Three miles from great snorkeling and sand beach. One mile to place where getting and dropping keys. No elevator didn't bother us, even though I counted the 24 steps. Air conditioning was marginal but it was only in high 70's so was adequate. It's dated, but also no big deal. Couch and inside chairs not comfortable. We only sat on lanai, thoigh. Kitchen plates, glasses, toaster, coffee pot, pans, etc were adequate. Consumable supplies were not. We bought paper towels, toilet paper, soap, etc, even remote control battery. Coffee drip type pot heating pad covered in burnt coffee crud but otherwise all was clean. We are a mid-50s couple. Overall, it's a great value, a place where you'll be left alone and feel at home, but not the luxury or cost of a $400/night hotel."

  • Perfect Base for Kona Coast Explorations

    "The stay at KAK afforded us a luxurious pause in our non-stop tour of 4 islands: a great place to cook, read, catch up on email and just watch birds or watch surf. The view from that unit is mesmerizing. But it was also the perfect spot from which to snorkel at Kahalu’u, walking every day the mile to and fro, and surviving the warnings and currents. As fish, we are learning that Hawaii in December and January are not good bets for safe swimming. And, as luck would have it, the “surges” were up. We survived, but we are experienced and cautious swimmers. I believe this was an unusually cold and windy "winter". That made hanging out in this unit even more pleasurable. It is a beautifully decorated space and the light and breeze filter gently in everywhere. You could spend your entire time all settled in and sipping coffee on the teak porch table watching the view of the incredibly active cove's waves and surfers, birds, and boats. The owner/host was most immediately responsive to questions about where to snorkel, get groceries and even where he bought his great murphy bed system! There were a few issues that I am sure the owner has already taken care of. Normal wear and tear that you would have in any home. They probably were not reported by previous renters. This space is good value for the money."

  • Perfect location!

    "We booked this condo for 3 weeks. We enjoyed it so much we extended another week. The location was perfect. Basically just pack your clothes, you don't need anything else. The condo was like being at home! Everything you need. Beach chairs, snorkels, ice chest etc. We live on Maui and haven't been to the Big Island in more than 20 years. We enjoyed sight seeing so much we put over 2000 miles on our car! Really!!! Air conditioning is a must at least in the summer and this condo had one in each room. Thank you for that! Richard and Deanna were easy to work with. Thanks for having a copy of Hawaii Revaled! It is a must read. Pool pass is a must at the pool!! Met some permanent residents at the pool. Great people. Bbqd almost nightly at the pool which is 125 steps from the condo! Yes I counted! We hope to come back next summer and there is no place we would rather stay. Thanks for sharing your condo with us!"
