  • 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."

  • Great Condo, Great Location

    "This is a wonderfully large condo, with a location right on the ocean front. My husband is handicapped, which is why we booked this condo: it has a roll-in shower and an accessible bathroom with grab bars and raised toilets--not always easy to find in condo rentals. Weather was really hot this time of year (late September), with virtually no wind, so we appreciated the A/C during our week long stay. There were some problems with the television reception. Directions listed in the "help" book don't work at all, but I was able to get the set working. And the cable company was working on the property, resulting in loss of reception for a time. Also, there are no working telephones in the condo. Apparently, they are not even hooked up. If you need to call re an emergency, keep your cell charged at all times--it will be your only phone. The condo is very well stocked with anything you might need for simple living, including lots of seasonings. We had some insect problems in the kitchen (small ants), but I was able to eliminate them with Simple Green found under the kitchen sink. Also had a huge cockroach, but finally got rid of him, too. There is a small refrigerator outside, but it is in dire need of defrosting. We didn't need to use it at all. The ocean views and privacy of the condo are exceptional. We both enjoyed sitting on the lanai in the morning, having breakfast and watching the outriggers go by. Didn't see any dolphins, but certainly loved watching the surf hit the lava rocks. There's a shopping area just up the hill, perfect for picking up groceries at the KTA or getting a quick meal at L & L or Subway. Covered parking is close by, but be sure to drop off any handicapped person near the condo before using the very small space. Exiting the car is not always easy, if the other space is occupied. We truly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again in the future, health willing. The condo is very well furnished, large, and in a great location. Go for it!"

  • Wonderful and Relaxing Soothing Ocean sounds made for excellent sleep!

    "My husband, son and I just spent a wonderful and relaxing week in this beautiful condo. It is very conveniently located just south of Kona, very quiet and peaceful area right on the ocean! The grounds and pool were very well kept with flowers everywhere and everyone was very nice. It's a 10 minute walk to Kahaluu Beach where we were able to snorkel and see turtles, there is also a shave ice food truck there most of the time. We saw a school of dolphin and from the lanai one morning which was impressive, they were jumping and twirling and putting on quite a show! The sunsets are amazing! If you like the sound of the ocean to put you to sleep, just leave the lanai sliders open and it's wonderful! Everything you could possibly need is provided in the condo and it's very clean and nicely decorated. There is a great Saturday farmers market right up the hill at the Keauhou Shopping Center. We did the moonlight Manta Ray snorkel which was just incredible! Good restaurants close by too. This was really a wonderful place and I'd love to visit again someday! You probably do need a car to get here, but if you don't mind a little walking you don't necessarily need one when you are here. It might be a little quiet for teenagers."

  • Missing this place already...

    "We had such a wonderful time in Kona. The views from this condo were breathtaking and I enjoyed every morning on the lanai with my coffee, listening to the waves. The condo is equipped with everything you need and minutes from one of the best snorkeling beaches and other great beaches. We enjoyed every moment and can't wait to return!"
