  • Nice stay

    "Very comfortable and conveniently located. The lanai is worth every penny. A great home away from home."

  • 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."

  • No way!

    ""No way" was the first thing one of our sons said as we entered the condo for the first time. It was very spacious and comfortable, and we ended up spending a lot of time on the lanai just listening to and watching the surf smash against the rocks beneath us. There were two couples, each with their own bedroom, and our son had his own bedroom up in the loft. The air conditioning was quite nice, and we never had to adjust it during our 8 day stay there. There are three pools on the property, though we only used the oceanfront pool and the one closest to us. They were quite refreshing, and the spas were also welcome. The tennis courts are quite close, though we did not use them. A couple of suggestions for people who rent. If you want to drive over to the volcano via Hilo, the road over Saddle Point is really quite good now. If you're consulting slightly older guides to the Big Island, it may say that it's not a good road. Just the opposite. Except for a quarter mile of road being worked on just outside of Hilo, the road over Saddle Point is probably better than any other road on the Big Island. Most of it is part of the Daniel Inouye Highway. It's a lovely drive and much shorter (and safer) than going the southern route, especially at night. Also, you should note that all of the snorkel equipment, etc., in the storage off the lanai are leftovers from other renters. None of it is very good, and you're much better off walking or driving up to the Keauhou Shopping Center and buying inexpensive snorkeling equipment at the CVS/Lonn store there. In addition, there is a KTA shopping center there to buy food and beverages. There is also an Urgent Care Center there, but they don't accept insurance cards. You have to pay cash and then bill your insurance for reimbursement. As for places to snorkel and body surf, we would recommend Two Step as the first choice. It's near a National Park to the south. Closer in to town is Magic Sands. Much better for kids and adults not wanting to slice open any part of their bodies on the rocks. Finally, in town and near the pier, is a lovely area (with a nice park) where you can swim without having to deal much with the rocks. Not a lot to see if you're snorkeling, but little kids might like it. To give you an idea of the area, it's a place where swimming teachers work with little kids. We hope this has been helpful."
