Far exceeded expectations in every way
Abbey Rentals was very friendly and professional, sent info well ahead of time, confirmed before we left the mainland, and called twice during our stay to make sure everything was OK. A phone call on a Saturday was promptly answered. Finally, the price was extremely right - much lower than hotels with similar amenities at a comparable location.The unit is beautifully decorated and was very clean. The kitchen and bath were adequately stocked at a basic level (though there were only three beach towels). The common living area is fairly small (ie., breakfast bar rather than dining room table) But the table on the lanai is full sized, and the living room furniture is comfortable and more than adequate for 4.The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are elegant. The location is superb. The condo has a lovely view of and is a very short walk to one of the best snorkeling (and surfing) beach areas on the Kona Coast. (And when I say "very short," this is coming from an out of shape couch potato). And this beach has a lifeguard and is protected from the hard surf by a wall built by King Kam to protect his kids from strong currents.We let our teens go to the beach together without us, which helped save everyone's sanity.The condo also has a great location in terms of food/dining experiences. Downtown Kona is only a 15-20 minute drive away. However, we usually bought food at the local shopping mall about a mile up the road. Restaurants in the mall include one of the best (affordable) Asian fusion restaurants on the Island and a local Hawaiian food cafe/take-out joint. The mall also had a grocery store, a drug store, a small book store, and one of the cheapest gas stations on the Kona Coast.
