  • Love those waves!

    "had a great time on the Big Island. Going to have to invest in a sound machine as we do miss the sound of the waves as we went to sleep. The only downside was that the noisy neighbors above us coming in after midnight. Of course this isn't something we blame on the condo. It was wonderful. Enjoyed cooking on the BBQ by the pool most nights but also the proximity to many fun local restaurants. So sorry we had to leave. Two weeks went really fast. Also, any issues we had were handled promptly."

  • Wonderfully comfortable and relaxing, gorgeous views and great amenities

    "We would go back in a heartbeat, and definitely try to book this unit again. Yes it is a 3-floor walk-up, and there is no air conditioning, but with plenty of fans, sliding screen doors, an expansive wrap-around lanai for outdoor dining, watching sunsets and breaking waves, it's hard to picture a nicer spot. We only closed the glass sliders one evening when a tropical storm blew by. This an end unit with south and west exposure, really great views from third floor level. Third floor gives you the most privacy also. Being on the top floor, this unit had great high sloping ceilings which added significantly to the feeling of openness. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, washer/dryer, a perfectly adequate kitchen with all the standard expected appliances, and the refrigerator has a dynamite ice maker and there are lots of cold packs in the freezer. Good size combined dining and living room, but my wife and I took all our meals out to the dining table on the lanai. Main bedroom area has a king bed, view of the ocean and there are sliding shoji screens that can be closed to provide privacy from the living/dining area if so desired. This bed was very comfortable. Second bedroom has a queen size bed and the windows in this room face the mountains. There are plenty of closets, lots of hangers, beach toys like noodles, coolers for packing lunches for day trips, plenty of beach towels, bath linens, etc. Although we only used the TV to check storm forecasts the instructions were easy to understand and lots of channels available. Also CD player in the unit and wi-fi in the complex. It seemed plenty fast for the business correspondence I occasionally needed to do with my morning coffee. I brought binoculars but owner also has two pair in the unit. The KKSRC has three really nice tennis courts and a large pool which is about to undergo some refurbishment. We spent time there every day and it was delightful. The grounds are very well tended and the landscaping is quite mature and lovely. To give the condo buildings and the townhouses some additional privacy there is no long continuous walk along the water edge or rather the 20'+ high, broken lava cliff edge. You can walk along a couple of the buildings and then the paths end either in broken lava scree or dense low barrier hedges which you don't want to try to walk through. Being an older resort (35+ years) it was built quite close to the ocean edge which makes for a delightful and picturesque setting."

  • Lovely condo and terrific owners

    "First...it must be said that the owner Janice was extremely responsive to all our requests and questions. She provided loads of information to help us plan a wonderful trip to Kona. The condo is located right at the ocean edge with an incomparable view of the sunsets. Open the slider door to the lanai and listen to the sounds of crashing waves. We love the sound of the ocean...but if you think crashing waves are "noisy"...then it's not the place for you. The condo has the best stocked kitchen of any condo we have ever stayed at. We were want for nothing...it even had a French Press in addition to the standard coffee maker. There were even many spices and loads of laundry detergent...things you hate to buy for a one week stay. There were several beach chairs, coolers and other beach toys/accouterments. The unit is well furnished and appointed. The only small complaint is that the unit gets quite hot. We were there in late October and the temps were in the mid to high 80's. The way the unit is oriented, the tradewinds don't provide any cooling effect. Even sitting on the lanai, there were no breezes..which, when it is cooler would be great...but not when it's hot. And there was very little circulation of air inside the unit other than what is provided by the ceiling fans. Be aware that you can have A/C, but it is an extra $30 + tax per day. All in all...great condo, great owners and would highly recommend."

  • Perfect Setting

    "Wonderful views. Very relaxing. We spent a lot of time on the balcony just watching the waves crash on the lava beach and enjoying the sunsets."
