Perfect

  • 5 of 5
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!

Perfect Location - Great Stay w Teens

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from the most relaxing and fun vacation to Kona. Having been to the Big Island twice before I did a lot of research, knowing I wanted to stay at a condo with access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club - the best beach on the island. My communication with the owners was prompt, courteous and very detailed in the information provided. I was so impressed with the owners that I booked the Palm Villas.

Location - The gated Palm Villas is close to the Shops @ Mauna Lani, dining, grocery store and alike. The spa is right across the street and it is a 20 minute walk (bring water) or 5 minute drive to the private beach club where covered cabanas for two, nice lounge chairs and a nightly groomed beach await. Truly spectacular way to spend your days.

Pool | Hot Tub - There is also a private pool and hot tub for the guests which was almost always empty. My 3 teens played in it nightly (closes at 8 for kids and 9 for adults). It is surrounded by lush gardens and blends in nicely to the hawaiian landscaping. Clean. Perfect temp. Avg 4' deep.

Our Unit - We chose a top floor unit with a loft and outside bbq | lanai. We had a peak-a-boo view of the water and great sunsets from the lanai and were able to save money eating breakfast in and using the grill at night. The kitchen was fully furnished and my kids loved the toaster oven (ha). The wine cooler was handy and the washer dryer even had Tide detergent provided.

Entertainment: With 3 teens the extensive movie library (~100 DVDs) was a nice way for the kids to decompress after the beach while adults sat on the lanai to watch the sunset.

Dining on Site: We did eat at Napua at the Beach Club and it was our best meal on island. And you can't go wrong with a bar right on the beach with you. They even have ice water and plastic cups readily available if you come up from the beach and need a quick drink of water.

Snorkeling on Site - Great snorkeling off the beach with lots of coral and fish to be seen. A turtle swam in every day, which was a treat. We rented stand-up paddle boards for the teens and they had a blast. You can dicker with the rental guys for reduced fees on hourly rentals so don't take the prices on the board. Showers are there, as is a lifeguard. Truly an amazing beach and why you should book at the Palm Villas.

I highly recommend Palm Villas for an unforgettable vacation.
