"This second floor condo had every thing we needed for a relaxing vacation on the Big Island. The bed was very comfortable and the sound of the crashing waves lulled us to sleep. The condo is Ocean Front with an unobstructed view from the living room and lanai. Never turned on the A/C - used the ceiling fans, kept the windows open and lowered the lanai shade during the day. Kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed the man made beach right by the ocean, sitting on the chaise lounges under the coconut palms, then watching the beautiful sunsets with a cocktail every evening. There is a nice BBQ area and picnic tables down there too. The condo manager keeps the grounds immaculate. The complex is very quiet. We had the beach to ourselves most of the time, and the pool was never crowded. A short drive takes you to the Magic Sands Beach, Da Poke Shack - (the best poke ever) and the KTA grocery store that had everything we needed (great recommendation by a local). We enjoyed dining in as well as eating out several times at the restaurants at the other end of Alii Drive just a few miles down the road. Favorites were Huggo's and Jackie Rey's for dinner, and breakfast at Island Lava Java. A great day trip was a stop for lunch at Big Island Brew in Waimea before we toured the Hawaii Vanilla Company.
Ann was very nice to work with, and responded quickly. She has thoughtfully provided beach towels, beach chairs, a cooler, guide books, and even first aid supplies. If you love looking at the ocean, beautiful sunsets and listening to the waves without a crowd of people around this is the place to be!"
