Winter escapee from Idaho
The condo was well furnished in very nice island heavy rattan style. Husband and I felt very at home there. The Queen bed is quite comfortable and it has drawers below so you can store everything to keep the unit neat. Great little kitchen fully stocked. No dishwasher but who cares when you are on vacation? The unit is very well located near old town Kilua and the best snorkel beach down south about a mile. Fantastic. This convenient 1st floor unit is close to the parking area and a bbq. There are bbq's and lounge chairs across the street on the beach front where you can take dinner or a few drinks and enjoy the sunset every night about 6pm. The owners provided ice chests, beach towels and beach chairs as well. The lanai faces the street so there is traffic but we sort of did not mind. Just had another rum & ? or walked across to listen to the ocean. Costco, Walmart, Safeway etc are about a mile from the condo so we found it easy to shop. The unit was very clean, cute, and relaxing. The price was excellent so that overrides the traffic issue plus there is a small view of the ocean crashing on the lava shore that was very nice to wake up to. We slept with the patio door open all night. On Sunday morning we heard beautiful harmonic songs floating our way from the church of The Living Stones. One of the exceptional things we did was take a Mt. Kileuea tour with Hawaii Forest & Trail Company. They will pick you up at the bus stop out front of the condos. Well worth the money and time. The tour guide was a native Hawaiian and shared both science and Hawaiian legends and culture of the big island throughout the day. Take the tour and stay in this condo. Excellent value and location. We stayed 9 days beginning of February during Humpback whale calving and green sea turtle mating season so loved those treats as well. We will return to this condo in Kona Bali Kai property. I tossed my lei into the surf and made a wish before departing ( Hawaiian tradition).Did not want to leave. Mahalo to the owners for a great spot to stay!! Many Alohas
