"We decided to stay at Kona Shores (#116) for our honeymoon and we are so glad that we did.
The place was just beautiful and so accommodating. Everything you could possibly need is in this condo, from kitchen items to extra bedding and even a nice TV and DVD player! We were able to save some money and enjoy breakfast there every morning, which was so nice. The condo is in walking distance to a lot and the first few days we were able to walk to shops and restaurants and get to see things that you do not see when having a vehicle.
The condo we stayed in was extra nice because it was at the far end by our parking spot so we didn't have a lot of traffic right outside our door and also the laundry room was right by our door, so that was nice! There is even a coffee place called "Green Flash Coffee" right next to Kona Shores and I thought that was pretty cool! I am a clean freak and I was very impressed with how clean everything was. Glen and Ginny were so helpful and very informative; they were always easy to get a hold of and very honest.
The pool was so quiet and never busy, usually it was just us there. We would go to the pool almost every day to swim in the morning and watch the breathtaking sunset at night. The other people staying there were very friendly and most of them go there every year. With being from Alaska, we aren't used to all the Hawaiian heat, but the air conditioner in the condo worked wonderfully and we were able to have a great sleep every night.
We walked (about 20 min) to go to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and their food was delicious! We were able to sit on the deck each time, overlooking the beautiful ocean and its waves. We also enjoyed Outback Steakhouse which isn't far from Bubba Gumps. Humpy's Big Island Restaurant was yummy too, and we were able to sit outside on the top deck in the evening and it was romantic.
I LOVE coffee, so we walked to Starbucks the days we didn't have a car, it was quite far for walking but worth it ;) driving, it only took about 8 minutes. So glad that we were able to rent a vehicle for half our stay and were able to drive and see the other side of the island and take a helicopter tour. That was exciting!
I love Kona and cannot wait to go back someday. We were very pleased with the whole stay and would do it all over again in heartbeat. My husband made my honeymoon dream come to life! Thank you Glen & Ginny"
