  • Nice Modern Condo

    "This is a very nice, updated, modern condo in a great location right on the ocean with a "to die for" view from the lanai. The building has covered parking and a pool, although the pool and surrounding deck will be closed for renovation sometime next year (2018). The owners live a mile away, but only for 6 months of the year. They live on the mainland and/or are traveling the rest of the time, but reachable by cell phone/email. A caretaker is used when the owners are off the island, and she was very helpful during our stay. We appreciated the direct booking with the owner which saved us some money. However, there are a few negatives. Be prepared for a long list of rules, including doing some laundry before you leave. We paid a cleaning fee which should include all laundry. We had to launder the beach towels, and it was requested, but not mandated, that we wash the sheets. A limited amount of the basics are supplied initially, but if you run out of things like toilet paper, paper towels, body wash, etc., you will need to replace them. We couldn't even find an extra garbage bag in the condo. Due to allergies to scented laundry detergent, we requested that laundry detergent free of dyes and perfumes be used to wash the sheets and towels before we arrived. The owners accommodated our request, but because there was a caretaker at the time of our stay, we were charged for both the new laundry detergent and her time. It seemed a little petty. Even though we got to keep the detergent (but had no intention or way of bringing home to the mainland), the owner could have kept it and used for future guests. We made the same request of the owners of the place we stayed at in Hilo, and they cheerfully accommodated our request without a charge. The place in Hilo uses a caretaker all year long, as the owners are never in residence. Overall, we were happy with the condo and its quiet location close to many of the sights we explored."

  • WOW A Great Hawaii Experience ++++

    "A big thanks to the owner and rental team. This is a wonderful place to home base for all of the big island. So much to see and do and the condo is a wonderful place to call home. The ocean is right there. with fans and ocean breeze this was a wonderful sleep. Lots of great restaurants in close proximity. Snorkeling, swimming with Dolphins, Luau's, Volcano's, Segway, Mule Carriage at Wiapio Canyon and if you are a history buff like I am, learned a ton. Turtles on the beach every day. One of the best surfing and body surfing areas on the East coast. Had super surf and got to watch both. Alas at 69, my hang ten is on the scales. My wife and I celebrated 30 years of marriage and her retirement with this trip. It gave us so many pleasant memories that remain with us for ever. Please take advantage of this wonderful retreat and enjoy the Big Island over and over."

  • Wonderful!

    "If you like watching dolphins, turtles, and colorful tropical fish,not to mention surfers and every type of boat from Polynesian canoe to cruise ship from your balcony , this condo is the place. Sunsets indeed are spectacular and why don't you enjoy them while sipping a drink made up in the blender because yes the condo has that as well as a coffee grinder so you can grind your own beans in the morning. It was definitely the most thoroughly appointed condo I've ever stayed in in my half century of experience. Plenty of great restaurants as well as grocery stores close by. Liane was amazingly responsive to our every need! I can't thank her enough for sharing this gem of a place to stay in Kona."

  • Lovely and comfy condo with amazing view

    "This is a terrific location right on the water just a mile or so from the downtown seaside Kona shopping district. We had a wonderful stay here and specifically enjoyed the nice lanai with views of surfers and turtles. The condo is adorable and so comfy, including the wonderful kitchen. Being on the top floor was definitely a plus for the views! And within minutes we could be dining and shopping in Kona, or snorkeling at one of the many beaches, such as at the Captain Cook monument. Thank you so much, Renee! It was fantastic! Mahalo :-)"
