The H23 Palm Villas condo was exactly what it was listed to be and much more. Upon first impression, the size, cleanliness, and decor were exceptional. Once we got settled in, we were very impressed by the detail in the amenities such as the towels (nice quality, size, and number), closet size, incredible kitchen and lanai with grill. The owners even provided additional goodies which went above and beyond our expectations. We were supplied with some "basics" to keep us from immediately having to go to the grocery store, as well as some very helpful information to get us familiar with the island (laminated maps, Big Island book, etc.). Another wonderful surprise was the provision of necessary beach items within the condo and the storage area including: beach towels, chairs, mats, umbrella, even snorkel gear for our whole group! I also appreciated the access to a washer and dryer within the home and the provision of soap. What a help!
My favorite things about the accommodation were the bed (size and comfort) in the master bedroom and the provision of snorkel gear. The furnishings were of very high quality (though, candidly, we did not spend a ton of time inside). The kitchen was very well equipped. I was the only one of our group of four to use the Palm Villas pool area, but I thought it was beautiful, and it was never crowded or noisy at all. It was always very clean and well maintained, and I thought the incorporated lava rock was beautiful. We all enjoyed the local beach, which was very convenient to us, as well as the beach side cafe/bar. The location of the home was perfect, which we appreciated much more after having driven around the entire island! Everything within the home was most definitely clean, and everything appeared to be in working order.
The only thing I would recommend would be to add an extra blanket somewhere for chilly nights, though it could have been somewhere that I just did not see. All in all, our group had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Palm Villas!
