The condo was great!
We really enjoyed the condo. Great location and had everything we needed. One thing though was that the hair dryer does not get hot so we had to buy a cheap one. That was the only thing I would say. Other than that small thing we really enjoyed the condo! Thanks a lot
First the good things. The condo is just at the edge of town and perfect walking distance to Jack's Diving Locker (and many restaurants, for those of you less interested in diving). The bed is comfortable and the unit is quiet and extremely clean. The kitchen is very well stocked with utensils, pots and pans and small appliances (blender, microwave, coffee pot, coffee grinder). There are beach towels and lawn chairs, but no cooler. There is a nice little beach just a few minutes down the road (Honl's Beach). Now the not so good things. There is no balcony - just a patio door that slides open to a railing. Even though the condo is on the third floor, there were ants and cockroaches. I know bugs are inevitable in this climate, but the house we rented in the middle of the forest on the Hilo side was completely free of insects. I left a note for management that they needed to fumigate as I was tired of squashing a roach every time I opened a kitchen drawer. The condo is also getting worn – stained carpet, broken kitchen counter, broken blinds. The last was a problem as it is difficult to keep the unit cool if you can’t keep out the sun. Lastly, this really isn’t a 1 bedroom unit. There are folding doors to close off the bedroom portion, but you cut the room off from the air conditioner and windows, so you really have a small studio unit.
We appreciate you letting everyone know what you enjoyed about your stay. I am sorry to hear that you experienced some difficulties. Unfortunately pests are difficult to manage in a tropical location. All of our condos and homes are on a pest control program, I will check to see that it is scheduled right away.

Great place in Kona
This place is in a great location close to all the restaurant and shops in Kona. The apartment has a great view of the ocean and lovely to watch the beautiful sunsets of Hawaii. The apartment is also extremely comfortable and cool with the air-conditioning and fans. Great place to spend a few days when seeing the sights of the big island. Lastly the parking spot is very handy and very close to the apartment.
Only negative, is there is no lift and this place is on the third floor. So you will have to carry your luggage up two flights of stairs.
Thank you so much for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay, your feedback is appreciated. I am glad to hear the stairs were not to much of a problem for you both. Please let us know if we can assist you with a future booking, we would be happy to have you back.
