"We stayed in January 2017. The things I liked best about the condo were that it is very private, we didn't have to go up any stairs, the assigned parking spot was close to the front door, the condo was extremely well stocked with kitchen items, linens, and beach gear, and the condo and resort grounds were nicely maintained. The condo is an end unit and is tucked up against shrubs on one side and a golf course behind the condo. This makes it very private. The king size bed is very comfortable. The condo was very clean. The condo is within walking distance of a KTA grocery store and shops and restaurants. It is also within walking distance of Keahou Bay where you can take cruises or snorkeling tours (and great sunsets). The farmers market on Saturdays in the shopping center parking lot was very good. There is also a farmers market at the Sheraton on Fridays and Saturdays that was more of a gift market (not any produce). The beach gear included beach towels, two camping chairs, two boogie boards, noodles, beach mats, and some snorkeling masks. There is also a bath mat provided that we used to line the trunk of our car to try to keep the trunk clean. Gladys has really thought of everything! We didn’t need to use the air conditioning since the condo has several ceiling fans and a pedestal fan. The condo cooled right down once the sun went down with the patio doors open since it is on the ground floor. We did not use the pool since there were too many other places to visit during the day and the pool is closed after sunset. One tip for travelers: Bring re-usable bags for groceries. Stores do not supply plastic shopping bags (most have paper bags though). We went to Walmart and were very surprised that they did not provide any bags for our groceries. They were even sold out of re-usable bags. The other tip is that if you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs since the golf course sprinkler system comes on in the middle of the night and it woke us up. We never met Gladys but we communicated by texting and she always got back to me quickly when I had questions. I would recommend this condo to anyone visiting Kona and would definitely stay there again. It is a very good value and is truly a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay."
