My wife and I have spent time here on several occasions and we are never disappointed....
Everything exists exactly as described; the main reason we keep coming back is the personal privacy that you can enjoy on this corner end unit. The glass sliding doors (there are 3 of them) that open to the lanai allow you to enjoy the tropical gardens and the small bird feeder attracts the local songbirds including the cardinals, canarys and saffron finches. There is even a comfortable sofa outside to relax and read and admire the foilage and fauna in your small tropical paradise. For the both of us, this place is like a second home, morning coffee on the little glass dinette table outside is a pleasant way to start the day.
There is a partial view of the ocean from the unit, but a one minute stroll to the BBQ and pool area allows excellent viewing of some dramatic sunsets. Newly installed flagstone tiles around the poolside and picnic area makes this an attractive place to be to grill your dinner over real charcoal (there are no gas BBQ's here) Just another reason to come down early, lit your briquets, walk down to the edge of the ocean or sit by the pool side to watch the sun sink in to the distance along the horizon. The recent addition of a water fountain just adds to the serenity. Great photos can be taken with the palm trees in the foreground as the day slowly comes to a close. You have the option of enjoying your meal in the covered patio area or you can bring it back to your lanai and dine in candlight.outside in the garden patio,
Parking is located just steps away from your unit and you are the closest one to the laundry unit.
To walk into town, it is just a short trip of 15 to 20 minutes, and next door you have the Aloha Nail salon and Green Flash Coffee bistro. For oceanfront access this place is ideal. Just like living like a local in a tropical paradise. ....Chris & Shelley - Vancouver BC
Owner's Response: Chris & Shelley: These guest visitors have come to our 1 BR unit a number of times over the years--even before marriage. Wonderful review--this is why we love this unit too. Also, Kailua-Kona is unspoiled (not too busy) and the complex has predominantly local owners or renters that make you feel like you are part of the local scene--and resulting in an uncrowded, great location, swimable pool.
