  • Really lovely place and responsive owners

    "The Hale Honu studio is almost like being in a boat. You can't get any closer to the water or waves. We slept with the sliding doors open every night because the sound of the ocean made sure you didn't hear any noise at all from Ali'i Drive. The beach park next door was a great place to get in the water to snorkel and everything you need for beach trips (chairs, umbrellas, towels, snorkels, cooler, boogie boards, etc) is waiting for you in the well stocked laundry room. The location makes it easy to get everywhere. We had a couple minor glitches (a smoke alarm that went off if you turned on the stove at all, dead batteries in the remotes that power the fans) but Peter and Darla were super responsive and made sure everything was right very quickly. All in all, a cozy, lovely, funky little place and a good value for the price. Thanks!"

  • This place has it all

    "This is a great condo all around for Kona. This is our 2nd time staying here in this same unit. The complex is very quiet and very close (walking distance) to all the restaurants on Ali'i Drive. We had a great time and are looking forward to staying there again."

  • Wonderful stay

    "We were lucky to have stayed here for 4 months, a few weeks in the lower unit and the rest of the time in the upper. The views are incomparable and we sorely miss waking up to the Kona coast. Being up mauka made for comfortable temperatures, especially for sleeping, and wonderful privacy. It was so nice to get out of the heat of the coast with a quick drive to the farm. We loved walking around the farm grounds and watching all of the wildlife (TONS of birds such as parrots, wild turkeys, pheasants, Hawaii chickens, egrets, cardinals, and mynas; then mongoose and geckos). I could not help smiling every evening listening to the pigs and other animals rustle around eating macadamia nuts. Watching the turkeys peck at mangoes that dropped from the massive trees was also amusing. Each unit truly does have everything you'd need, but we were more comfortable in the upper unit. The kitchen is fully stocked. The lower unit bathroom is very fancy, the upper unit baths less so but perfectly functional. It's easiest if both renters park in the garage, which frees up the extra space at the top of the driveway to back up and then drive down. The walk from the garage to the units is steep...good exercise! Al was very responsive to any questions or concerns and even gave us a bag of Kona beans during one of his visits. We met the groundsman and one of the workers from the UCC coffee farm next door, and they were so friendly. All in all, this was a wonderful, unique place to stay and we enthusiastically recommend it!"
