We've been staying in this unit for 5 years, each year increasing the number of weeks we have stayed. Each year, the incredibly gracious and accommodating owner Dennis has made little improvements which have made a BIG difference in the quality of the stay - faster internet, new dining room table, outdoor barbeque and table on the lanai, etc., etc. We just love Dennis and Cheryl's condo and highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a fantastic Condo. Looking forward to coming back next year.
We believed we had rented this unit. Two things happened. First, the owner "mistakenly" overbooked us. We found this out just hours before our arrival and were told we would stay our first 5 days in "an alternate but comparable unit" in the same complex. We did not feel it was comparable. Then, on moving day, we were placed in another unit in the same complex near the advertised and pictured unit. The unit in which we are placed is not pictured, nor is it advertised anywhere on any website we could find, but according to one of the owners we spoke to, it is often used to "manage calendar issues". It was unclean, cluttered with a multitude of mismatched furniture, and had a long list of maintenance and cleaning issues which amazingly included a large blood stain on the mattress pad in one of the bedrooms. After MUCH discussion with the owner, in which he informed us we were "just too picky" and that we "should go stay at a high end hotel where we might be more pleased", we were able to get a partial refund, but had to find our own alternative accommodations to salvage the remaining portion of our vacation. As the owner put it, "we will just have to agree to disagree". The property manager who helped move us from the initial unit to what was supposed to be the unit we rented let slip the comment "geeeez, he double booked it AGAIN?!" The owner many times pointed us to glowing reviews of the property posted here which indeed may be legitimate, but we bet are related to the pictured unit versus the unadvertised unit. The problem is, as a renter, you don't know whether you will actually get the advertised unit, or the other one, which the owners both will swear is "essentially the same". Since no unit number is noted in the VRBO listing, you don't know when you sign the rental contract, that the unit number specified on that contract may not be the unit in the pictures. On the plus side, the complex is very nice, clean, well maintained, and the pool and common area is also very nice, as is the location.
My extended family (7 adults and one toddler) stayed in this great condo for a 2 week Christmas trip in December 2014. When booking our trip we were a little nervous about cramming all the in-laws, aunts, grandparents, and our 1 year old into one unit, but we were THRILLED with how much space this condo had. The 1st floor living/dining space is very big, the kitchen is clean & large, and the bedrooms were wonderful (and upstairs, so you get more privacy). The owners were accessible and friendly, and overall our stay here was wonderful.
The only drawbacks we found:
-No sandy beach for swimming nearby (but that's going to be true most anywhere in Kona area)
-The kiddy pool was fabulous but much too cold for our 1 year old (maybe this changes seasonally?)
-A few minor maintenance issues which the owners dealt with cheerfully & promptly
Our favorite things about this condo:
-Very quite & peaceful (even during the day, but especially at night/early morning there was never any noise)
-The Master Bedroom has a huge walk-in closet which we turned into a "bedroom" for our daughter... amazing!
-Walking distance to grocery store, a wonderful little coffee shop, Thai restaurant, etc.
-Garage area for storing/drying your towels, snorkel gear, etc
-Pack'n'Play and highchair provided for our daughter, as well as boogie boards, coolers, beach mats & sand toys
-Very close (10min walk) to a great snorkeling area
-Beautiful sunset views over the ocean from the Lanai
-Hot tub and pool were never crowded and everyone was extremely friendly
-Bathrooms & kitchen were clean, modern, and HUGE for a rental
-Walking distance to a small marina with kayak and SUP rentals
-Very nice grill & outdoor patio dining area
We enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return to Hawaii!
This was my third one-month stay in this nice, upscale condo with 2 levels, 3 bedrooms, and 2 1/2 baths. It has beautiful views of ocean, palm trees, flowering shrubs, a spacious lanai on ground level and a private balcony lanai on the second level with even better views. The condo is fully equipped with all basics. The owners are very easy to contact and very accommodating. During my most-recent stay they did a number of small updates, including a new comforter/bed set for the master bedroom, a few new kitchen utensils, a new serving tray, and all new pillows throughout all three bedrooms. Insect control is done on a regular basis every quarter, as required in all tropical areas. No insects were noted anywhere during the one-month stay.
There are 2 portable beds/play pens for children to use for sleeping/playing and a high-chair for infants. The Keauhou shopping center is close enough to walk to, where there are theatres and an excellent and popular farmers' market on Saturday mornings. It's an interesting 6-mile drive into downtown Kailua, with a number of places to stop along the ocean on the way. This is a gated community with an upscale swimming pool/deck area that is very attractive and popular with tenants. It is very quiet at night in this condo complex. I look forward to returning next season.
For a second year I spent a month in this wonderful, upscale condo in a gated community of condo complexes. The 2 levels with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths make it a home away from home with all the necessary appliances and furnishings. The ground-level outdoor lanai is spacious with wonderful views of the ocean. The upstairs lanai is private with lots of room. All rooms are tastefully furnished.
I especially appreciated the quiet and the privacy. Even with tenants in neighboring condos, it is very quiet and private. The owners are easy to contact and very accommodating. It is so close to the Keauhou shopping center, you can walk there or to the farmers' market on Saturdays. I can't wait to return for another month's stay!
We really enjoyed our time at this condo! The view is spectacular, the kitchen is well-supplied and the furnishings are lovely. We found the beds to be exceptionally comfortable in every room and the amply ceiling fans made the atmosphere wonderful. We used the barbeque frequently and the pool is one of the best we've seen anywhere. The owner was friendly and helpful, and even sent our battery charger home to us when we left it behind in the outlet!
