"We lucked out, having started our Christmas holiday vacation housing search late. The condo is immaculately clean, uncluttered of personal items, and well appointed. The unit had every utensil we needed to barbeque steaks (gas barbeque at the pool) and make a Christmas dinner; and was thoughtfully stocked with bed linens, beach towels, laundry and cleaning supplies, and tourist information.
The highlight of the condo is the location. This condo unit is on the ground floor right next to the ocean. Hop down from the lanai and you are exploring lava tide pools or snorkeling. Stay on the lanai and watch whales or local fishermen or view the sunset.
We liked the proximity to town and the amenities. You'll see lots of people walking, biking or running along Ali'i Boulevard (which runs in front of the condo). Walk a block and a half towards town and you can grab a latte at Green Flash Coffee. Walk away from town a quarter mile and you can find a semi-permanent Farmer's Market. Walk to town and grab lunch or dinner, visit a historical site, or get a Shave Ice.
You could do well here without a car but we used our rental car to take a few day trips (Hilo, Waimea, Captain Cook)."
