Great condo in Kona!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo in the heart of Mona. The owners provided wonderful extras, in addition to all the amenities described. Coffee, chocolates, bowl of fruit, bottles of cold water and locally brewed beer, frosted mugs in the freezer, prompt return of duo deposit! Thanks for a great experience Robin!

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were perfect. The location was awesome. The bed was very comfortable. And the toilet rocks!… But not in a good way. I'm sure that I'll get fixed by the time you get here. Plenty of extras too much to name go ahead and book it!!

Owner's Response: Hi Tony and Kathy, Thank you for your kind words! Also I appreciate you letting us know about the toilet issue - it is now very firmly bolted in place! I hope to see you in the future. Aloha, Robin

Located perfectly to launch Big Island exploration!

  • 5 of 5

This condo unit is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The woodwork, counters and bathroom are gorgeous and the bed is super comfy! The owners have stocked the condo with everything we needed for cooking, grilling, lounging on the lanai - including several nice surprises upon our arrival, like a bowl of fresh fruit, etc! We were out and about to all sides of the Island and generally spent the evenings (grilling by the pool) and the early morning (breakfast on the lanai), so the (large) studio size didn't bother us at all. There was virtually no neighboring condo noise, but if you're super sensitive, bring ear plugs for a very slight bit of morning rush-hour traffic. The front desk folks were very helpful and sweet and we met nice people at the pool, to boot! We looked forward, after our days of snorkeling, hiking, fishing and general exploration, to coming home and relaxing in the condo, or by the pool. We highly rate this unit/owner and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Great style and lots of amenities in the heart of Kona. The garden protects you from the busy town.

  • 5 of 5

Robin has thought of everything for the beach vacationer! We were able to prepare meals easily and eat on the lanai. Custom touches in the decor were beautiful. Lots of built ins and storage for so no need to leave anything lying round. Great value in a comfortable old style inn. Easy walk to many restaurants so no need to worry about parking. You can walk to the King Kamehameha beach or drive to many beaches north and south. Very clean and well maintained studio and lovely garden grounds around the pool and hot tub. Very quiet and peaceful. I would recommend this studio to friends and family.
