Guestbook comments from the owner
Kath & Bruce, thank you so much for sharing your condo. We did enjoy the sunset from Mauna Kea and experienced Waipio Valley and have enjoyed every minute on the lanai. It has been great fun watching the surfers. We would like to come back in 2013 to the Ironman in October.

OUR PLACE OF REFUGE

  • 5 of 5
We loved our week in this condo. Everything was as promised. The kitchen was fully equipped, the beds comfortable, and the view awesome....at first, I thought the surf was loud but it soon became our lullaby. Everything was clean, neat, and tidy. In addition to the tips sent to us by Kathy, there were other guidebooks in the condo as well. WiFi worked perfectly too.

We spent a little time everyday watching the surfers (they start early and finish late!) hit the breaks. Some of those kids were young!

The location is centrally located. We went up to Hawi.....down past Capt Cook....and east to Mauna Kea. Also 3 Kohala Coast beaches (Hapuna, Mauna Kea, and A Bay). Very convenient to return to as our home base.

I fully recommend this condo for a BI getaway. Kathy was great to work with throughout the process. We'll be back!

A FABULOUS TIME IN KONA!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have been happier with our stay in this condo! The location is incredible; we could hardly pull ourselves away from the lanai and tide pools to sight see! The condo has everything from kitchen appliances and beach towels to blow dryers and travel books to make our stay easy.
We found the beds very comfortable and followed the advice in the reviews to close the 'street' window in the bedroom and use the fan to circulate that wonderful ocean breeze!
Stay here; you will not be sorry!

FANTASTIC SPOT

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful place to stay that is just far enough away from downtown to be quiet, but close enough to run to the restaurants if you don't feel like cooking. The condo is very well equipped and the pictures are quite accurate. As a side note, the sound of the surf will drown out people who snore. The surfers provide plenty of entertainment and there is snorkeling two coves south of the condo if you have experience (saw 4 turtles at a cleaning station). Otherwise, head on down to Kahalu'u and swim with the turtles there. We were there for two weeks and had a great time.

We arrived for 6 days and met our daughter and son in-law from Alaska there. As our flight was late, our kids were able to access the condo with no problem. Property was exactly as we expected. Very clean. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need - supplies and cooking utensils. The lanai was unbelievable - the ocean is right there! In fact the first night, we commented how loud the ocean was (but wonderful to fall asleep to!). The living room was big enough for four adults. We never turned the TV on once. The master bedroom was wonderful - Very comfortable king bed with quality linens We had plenty of extra bedding and towels. The second bedroom had two twins that could be made into a king. I think it would be better if they had just a regular king or queen bed - our kids had trouble getting comfortable trying to put the twins together (each twin was a different hardness). Also the spare bedroom is on the street side and the kids mentioned it was noisy. The only cleanliness issue we had was the extra bathroom had a moldy shower liner. I contacted the owner about this after our return home and she said it would be taken care of (The housekeeper should have noticed this). The view is amazing - sunset, whales, boats, and surfers. We spent hours on the lanai being entertained. We have been to the Big Island twice now and really love it - so much to see and not as crowded as Oahu. Very relaxing, highly recommend and would return in a minute!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay...
The second bedroom beds can be made into a king upon request by our house keeper. They have a special way of doing it so the bed is really comfortable. This information may help for our future guests...

OKAY

  • 3 of 5
We really enjoyed Kona and the many activities that the Big Island offers. Kathy was very easy to deal with, answered our questions and returned our deposit quickly. The unit was laid out well and the kitchen as well as the whole unit had absolutely everything needed. There is everything from beach chairs to maps to books, whatever you could need. The view was also spectacular. I am rating this unit with 3 stars due to the furnishings and the beds. The furniture may be fine for a rental but are not what one would have in their own home due to quality. We found all of the beds uncomfortable and hard which affected our sleep considerably. I would not recommend the second bedroom for adults due to the mattresses but it could work for smaller children. This unit is located close to the main road so we were unable to keep the second bedroom’s window open due to road noise. Though advertised without air conditioning, this unit would benefit from air as it is difficult to get airflow into the 2nd bedroom with the window being closed. I have raised all of these concerns with the owner already and believe this could be a great unit with some basic upgrades in addition to the ones already completed.

Owner's Response: The breeze flows nicely through our unit because it is direct ocean front..
Any oceanfront condominium complex in Kona is located close to the street.
Unfortunatly with that, you have occasional noise. We have ceiling fans in all rooms
for those balmy nights and have not needed air conditioning.
We are in Hawaii after all...

We find our beds quite comfortable as the mattresses and bedding are new.

Thank you for your comments

This place has everything a person staying on the Big Island would ever hope for. Every morning we could sit on lanei and watch the locals walk out through tide pools and slip into the ocean to spend the day surfing. The tide pools are full of crabs and tropical fish, but the best was all the turtles that would come into feed. We made it a point to make it back to take pictures of all the activity "before "watching sunset. HA! Pictures don't lie, you are really that close. I would definitely recommend this condo others!

This is an absolute OCEAN FRONT location! Close to town, farmers market, arts &crafts and great snorkeling beaches. On famous 'Banyons' pro-surfing Beach. Lyman's' beach, just down the street for the intermediate surfer. Kahaluu Beach Park just 1 mile south for beginner surfers and swimming. Watch the surfers from sun up to sun set. Watch the sea turtles in their natural habitat below your lanai. Lot's of tide pools too! Seasonal Whale watching is spectacular! The true feeling of HAWAII...
