  • Great house for families/groups in great location

    "Great property, highly recommended for families. HOUSE: Call it 4 and a half rather than 5 bedrooms, one bedroom is a small room within the master suite. But for a family with a small child that can be a really good thing, having a little one close to parents for those nighttime wakeups but still with the all-important door in between. Kitchen is well stocked, and they keep around the various condiments (salt, pepper, cooking oil, no-stick spray) that people buy so you don't end up buying a huge container of something you hardly use. Pool is perfect, not heated but that's really unnecessary in the climate as the water warms up in the sun and was pretty much always ideal temperature for a cool dip. Also there is a bench/shelf running the length of the pool that is ideal for smaller children to walk and play in the water without being totally submerged, then the rest of the pool is deep enough for jumping in. There's a hot tub that we never used because it was just too warm out to want to be in the hot tub. Lots of snorkel supplies, and kids stuff including flotation devices for pool/beach and sand play items for the beach. Also a couple of older strollers that work perfectly well. No air conditioning in the house, but for the most part with the windows open and the fans on the bedrooms are fine at night. The downstairs bedroom gets afternoon sun and is probably the only room in the house that really suffers from a lack of air conditioning. Back yard a little buggy at night, but loads of bug spray provided and with the bugs you get tons of geckos and chameleons that the kids loved. LOCATION: Good location near Magic Sands beach. 15 min drive from central Kailua-Kona town. There was actually some extremely high surf when we were there, resulting in closures of some local beaches, and we did get to see the true "Magic Sands" phenomenon with all the sand washed off the beach a couple of days. But in even moderately high surf there is a protected area of beach at Magic Sands that is good for little ones. When the extreme surf was up we went to Keiki Ponds beach tucked away near downtown, highly recommend. KTA supermarket was a short drive away, had everything we needed, did not even go to Costco this trip which is a rarity for us. Favorite restaurants we recommend a short drive away: Annie's Island Fresh Burgers, Ray's on the Bay at the Sheraton, Sam Choy's (mainly for the view, especially sunset), Da Poke House for lunch (assuming you like poke)."

  • Great studio

    "This sweet little studio on the second floor in the Kona Islander Inn compares very well to other condos we have rented at this location over the years. It is nicely decorated and has the amenities necessary for a lovely vacation. The pricing is very reasonable. The view is diagonally towards the ocean and you can hear the waves crashing from the lanai. The Inn is close to everything in downtown Kona. Renting a car is not necessary if you like an in-town vacation."

  • Lovely Ocean front property

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We stayed here for 4 nights and moved to another condo. This condo was great the only thing I missed was the master was not on the ocean side of the unit and it was a little warm. Would have been nice to have an indoor air unit. or giant fan. Everything else was lovely!"

  • Great Two Week Stay with Amazing Views!

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a great time at this unit. The condo was totally stocked (spices, cooking utensils, condiments, snorkel gear, etc), and it was great not having to pickup those items just for the trip. The view from the lanai was everything we could have hoped for. We watched the sunset, and frequently awoke to dolphins playing in the bay. Additionally, you really couldn't beat the location. Far enough from the main strip of Ali'i Drive to keep it quiet (and an easy in and out) but close enough that it was a quick drive or a even a walk. Another HUGE plus was the AC. We talked to a decent number of people in the pool (which was never crowded), and everyone was complaining about the heat. Whole unit AC would have been ideal, but we had no problems with the unit in the living room and the amble amount of fans provided. As with anywhere in Kona, expect a bit of a drive to the main beaches (Kohala coast), but we found great local snorkeling and Magic Sands Beach was close and nice. The only negative about the unit was that we thought the complex looked a little dated (big deal... it's the outside). And, sure enough, during our stay they started working on redoing the exterior of some of the buildings. Luckily the construction didn't bother us, and looked to be going at a fairly quick pace. We're planning on trying another island for our next trip to Hawaii, but I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if/when we return to the Big Island."
