Best condo we have ever rented
My husband, 18 month old daughter and I just returned from a 10 day stay on the Big Island. While we spent 7 days in a different condo near downtown Kona, and only 3 at this beautiful property in Kulalani, we now wish it had been the other way around. We have rented through VRBO many times, all over California, Hawaii, and Europe, and I can honestly say that this was our best experience yet. The owner was very prompt, kind and accommodating in all of our correspondence and the town home and surrounding property absolutely stunning. The pictures do not do it justice.
First, the location is great for exploring the big island and especially if you want to just enjoy the most beautiful beaches on the island, not to mention some of the best in the world. The private beach club at Mauna Lani is very nice if you want an easy day, not having to lug around beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. I also found it to be a great safe place for my young daughter, offering lounge chairs, shade and very clam water. However, Hapuna Beach and Mauna Kea Beach are also an easy drive and offer gorgeous white sand and turquoise waters. The condo is equipped with all you need for a day at one of these beaches including beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, boogie boards and snorkeling equipment. We did it all.
As for the town home itself, upon arrival, I was more than pleasantly surprised. It was perfect. Immaculately clean and well appointed. The owner has thought of everything for couples, families, etc who may be staying there. The pack n play, high chair and baby gate made everything so easy for our toddler. There are lots of small attention to detail items the owner has thought of, and there was not one thing I found myself needing or wishing for beyond what was provided.
I could go on and on, but to name a few things that will make you never want to leave were…… the open floor plan, lots of windows, light and fresh air. The super comfortable bed. The huge master bathroom and soft towels. The kitchen that has everything you could ever need to prepare home cooked meals. The BBQ on the lanai, the grassy area just beyond the lanai for daughter to play safely. The grounds of Kulalani, including the 2 pools and fitness center. Really, this was a 5 star property all the way around!! We will definitely be back. :)
