Underground parking with security code elevator access and key access for the stairwell doors is good.
Site manager available during daylight hours and property manager can be contacted 24/7.
Nice beach 100 yards away. Life guards, foods, water rentals during the day. Snorkeling and surfing.
Hop on - hop off bus pickup 100 yards away.
Unit does not have a/c, has ceiling fans in each bedroom, and two in living room.
Good air flow through when lanai doors are open.
Master bathroom ok but shower could be updated.
Kitchen countertop tiles could be replaced with flattop granite and stove is showing its age.
Awesome view of ocean, whales and susets.
Shopping center about 1 mile away.
Beautifully decorated condo with a convenient location.
The condo is beautiful with amazing views of the ocean from all 4 lanais. It is a very large space with plenty of room for 4 adults and one child. The Kitchen is well stocked with anything you may need for cooking and there is some beach items available for guests (snorkel gear and flippers, beach towels, a cooler to bring lunch).
We used the pool frequently, it was clean and quiet during the day. The barbecue area was great for outdoor meals.
The condo did get quite hot during the day as there isn’t any air conditioning (we were there mid September). Since you need the windows open to be comfortable, note that it can be kind of noisy at night, we had a white noise machine that blocked out most of the sound but earplugs would work too.
Perfect place to enjoy big island.
Wonderful vacation with my family
Good times. ..!!!
Great place but a little hot cause of not AC and lack of powerful fans but after a couple of days we got used to it and overall everything was awesome!
Well stocked, good location and lots of space, but noisy rooster woke us up every night
We really wanted to give it 5 stars like the other reviewers because we agreed with all the positive things they said, but we had to hold back one star for the following reasons: (1) There was a wild rooster at the undeveloped land next door and it started crowing loudly at around 3 AM everyday. Most days it was not too bad but one day it was non-stop from 3 AM to 6 AM! Because the unit had no air conditioning, we couldn't close the patio doors because it would get too hot. (2) There were lots of tiny, water-loving bugs moving around by the sinks of the master bathroom. It didn't bother us too much but might freak someone else out. (3) We didn't see any smoke detectors in the unit. (4) We called the property management at 3:30 PM one day because the electricity was out. Although the office didn't close until 4 PM, no one answered the phone when we called and no one ever called back after we left a voice mail message. The power did come back eventually but someone should have called us back as a common courtesy. If we can't find somewhere better the next time in Kona, we will book this unit again.
Aloha Yi-Kang, Thank you for staying with us on the Big Island. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We sincerely apologize for the lack of service you may have received during your stay when the electricity was out. We have passed this along to our on site team & hope to provide a better experience for future guests. Mahalo!
Great location and beautiful property.
Loved this property for its amazing views. Loved listening to the birds chirping in the morning and the watching the beautiful sunsets by the patio. Very well equipped and tastefully furnished. Loved our stay. Just keep in mind that this is a tropical place so expect geckos, lizards and ants.
