Newly remodeled studio condo with full kitchen, bath with shower and tub, in unit washer and dryer and air conditioned. All at an economical price.
We just returned 2 days ago from the big island, stayed in this nice condo for 8 nights. The condo was exactly as described: fast internet, full kitchen, a TON of paperback books from many genres, washer and dryer, easy parking. It was also very clean, we didn't see a single bug the entire time and the kitchen and bathroom were nice and clean. He also provided extras: beach mats, beach towels, beach chairs, pool noodles, an ice chest, maybe a few other things I'm forgetting too. The owner was very quick to respond to emails and takes credit cards - many of the owners on here don't take them, which makes it more difficult to send in the deposit and payments.
My boyfriend and I were travelling to the Big island for the first time & I am so happy we found this place. One thing to understand: virtually all of the vacation rentals & hotels are on the street this property is located on, so if you are worried about location do not be. You may pay more money somewhere else but you will be somewhere along the same road. This place is across the street from the ocean, but as the picture shows, you can see beach from the balcony.
The condo was very comfortable, and the washer/dryer was a huge bonus. The place was clean and well stocked.
When I spoke to Michael to make the reservations, he recommended a manta ray night dive which was the highlight or our trip. If you are coming to Kona, do not pass this place up. It was a gem & we enjoyed our stay very much.
Perfect for two people who want to have a great place stay! Kitchen, laundry and beach toys. If you are looking for a great get away without the cost of staying at a resort and have access to amenities, this is the place for you! Bed was comfortable, kitchen had all the dishes and pans you need to have an evening in. Close to all shopping and beaches. We love going to this island and definitely will look into staying here again. Owner was very nice and when we had questions, he got back to us quickly.
Disregard the old adage: If it's too good to be true, it probably is. This unbelievably affordable condo was equipped to the rafters. I didn't expect toiletries, detergent and so many other amenities including beach gear. If it wasn't the owner himself, thank you to the previous guests for leaving some kitchen provisions behind like condiments, coffee and aluminum foil. I could tell that the TV, clock radio and stove were brand new. My only suggestions are to replace the cracked lamp shades and the worn pans. I wish we could have stayed longer.
We came to Kona for a short getaway weekend from the Hilo side of the island. The condo was perfect for us (a couple).
It was very clean and well kept. I thought the furnishings were great. I find satisfaction in the little things and I was pleasantly surprised by the soft bed sheets and the extra amenities provided for us. The owners provided soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and extra paper products! We really enjoyed having a full size refrigerator and the kitchen! It's a nice way to save a little money on trips.
Overall, great spot and reasonably priced! We would love to stay again!
i don't think you can get any better for the price. the apartment is clean and private, and it is close to town but away from the tourist craze. poke bowls & water sports rentals are across the street, as well as a little local surf spot.
my husband and i stayed there for 10 days and would definitely stay there again.
