Overall convenient and nice
This property was really pretty and in a convenient part of Kona. Not in the middle of all the hub-bub, but still close enough to get anywhere you wanted to go. It was comfortable and clean, with our only complaint is the constant running A/C, it really starts to get to be too much after awhile. In the master it blows directly into the face of the person sleeping on that side of the bed. If you want to turn it off in the room and enjoy the sounds of the birds and breeze outside, you have to also turn off the one in the living room, because it connects to the same part of the lanai, which then leads to the place getting warm pretty quickly. We were there in mid to late April and the units had to run all the time to keep the place comfortable. Again, overall it was a nice stay, but the noise just got to be too much. The kitchen was nicely stocked, but the cutting board looked like it had been driven over out on the streets, so we bought and left some smaller ones for the next people to use. There were plenty of towels available for a quick run down to the beach and the ice chest was a nice touch to keep food with you and to help save a little money. Management was easy to reach when there was a small inconvenience with the internet and were very accommodating. Thank you for the good overall experience.
Thank you for the cutting board! Our future guests will appreciate this!
Great condo in perfect Keauhou location
Nicely appointed and furnished condo in the heart of Keauhou. Close to shopping, bay and things to do. Very comfortable bed, nice newer appliances and very clean. Loved having laundry facilities in the unit and could have packed 50% less stuff! Highly recommend going out on the Hula Kai for afternoon or manta ray snorkels. Peabody & Galette's is great for coffee and crepes.
Very clean very nice !!!!
We are family with two kids 11 and 5 and we extremely enjoy this place, quiet place with three clean pool area. Lots of stuff in the apartment (beach chair, beach toys, beach cooler etc.) Nice big Lanai with barbecue gril and beautiful sunset, five star recommendation to all.
To owner: I fix the main sliding patio door,( was very hard to open for my kids and my wife,)
Propane bottle in the grill was gone in 5 days, $21 exchange so there is a brand new now.
I replaced filter in fridge, but still five stars! really nice apartment. Jerry Silhavy
Wow, Jerry! Thank you so much for replacing the filter & the propane tank! Our team will work on the sliding door! We're so thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Please do not hesitate to contact us again for any future bookings! Mahalo!

What you see is what you get!
We stayed at the condo in December of 2018. We loved the quiet, but close proximity that the condo offered to the ‘downtown’ area of Kona, a nearby grocery store, restaurants, farmers markets, and lots of beaches. It was clean upon arrival, although with getting in very late and all grocers closed, some fruit or a small snack to get us through until morning would be a nice bonus feature that the owners could consider providing. We enjoyed playing games on the large deck and the sunshades were a nice feature when it was getting very hot or to keep bugs out at night. The pool is also very quiet and has an even more beautiful view of the golf course and ocean. Our one negative was very limited toilet paper provided and we actually had to go out and buy some because we ran out half way through our one week holiday. In the manual it mentioned a two roll limit for each bathroom, which seems unnecessary. Some basic condiments in the fridge would also be helpful in order to help with preparing basic meals. We have stayed at other vacation rentals where the owners go above and beyond with little touches to make it special, and this one was lacking that, but overall still a very positive and enjoyable place.
Good location, nice condo
Overall our stay was very good. The condo is in a very good location, and it had everything that we needed. The pool was very nice and it was close with very few people there.
The only downside were the renters in the condo above us, very noisy, doors banging at all hours and furniture scraping.
This and other issues were brought up with the booking agents and we would not get replies from them, even though we left multiple contact numbers. Calls would got to voice mail and no return calls. Even when we wanted to book and extra day it took 5 calls before it was finalized.
