About Erika Gagnon Tax ID #W01108500-01

My husband and I moved to the islands seeking the surf and the hawaiian lifestyle. We met and married here and now have a young child. Kona is a great place to be, nice people, sun, sand and surf, it can't be beat!

If you want to go out and have cocktails, you don't have to worry about driving, just walk home. The pier and the beach are a short walk, as well as the grocery store and even the post office is right there.

Very happy with this centrally located condo

  • 4 of 5

Very happy with the condo. Very clean and well equipped and very quiet. we used the condo as a launching point to tour the Island and visit one of the many Kona Coffee plantations.

The condo is on the third floor, if stairs are a problem for you keep this in mind. Being on the third floor does have it's benefits, you have a small view of the ocean and your above any noise that might be generated by the driveway and it's far enough off the road so you won't hear passing cars. The master bedroom and main living area have a wall A/C units which will keep the temps down if it gets hot. If there's a breeze just open all the windows and enjoy the Hawaiian air.

Your pretty much walking distance to any entertainment you might want in Kona. The Kona brewery is two blocks away with great pizza, shopping just down the hill and restaurants all around. Target, Walmart and grocery stores all within a couple of miles.

The unit was equipped with some beach items such as umbrella's, beach mats, body surf boards and a small ice chest which we enjoyed the use of. Oh and there's shopping bags in the hallway which you will need if shopping on the Big Island, bags are not supplied at the stores.

If your interested in seeing the Lava flow into the ocean, plan on a 4 mile hike, have appropriate water and food supplies and flash lights because you will want to be there after dark.

Erica was very responsive with my request to stay and returned my cleaning deposit very timely. I would definitely stay here again.

Thanks Erica I'm sure we will be back, there's a lot of the island we would like to see.

Three and a half would be my rating for the condo. The best thing about this condo was location!

  • 3 of 5

Having two master suites with ensuites was a real plus! The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious with loads of closet space. However the overall condo and pool area are a bit dated and tired. Being on the third floor and further up the hill, we appreciated the coolness and breezes in the evening. The condo was within walking distance of Alli Drive where all the action and restaurants are located.

Erika was a wonderful, generous hostess and was a phone call away for any of our concerns. We very much enjoyed our stay in Erika's condo!

Clean, right in town

  • 4 of 5

The condo was exactly as described and very close (walkable) to everything in Kona. Clean, well-equipped with everything we needed. The pool was nice and never crowded, and the other neighbors were friendly.

However (and this has zero to do with the way the owners run their rental, but a drawback nonetheless) the street noise from motorcycles was almost unbearable. I'd recommend earplugs if you are staying anywhere right in the main drag of Kona.

Spacious condo in a quiet, central location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect!

My husband and I enjoyed our one week vacation at Erika's condo. The pictures don't do the condo justice. It's spacious, with a big lanai/balcony. The air conditioner in the bedroom was a life saver for my husband. The internet was very fast compared with the other two condos we'd rented on the Big Island. The water pressure was good for the showers. There was a nice breeze with the windows open. The condo had everything we needed for a beach day. We used the folder chair and the snorkeling gear. There were also body surfing boards.

We could walk easily to the center of Kona and the Alii Road. There was a big shopping plaza very close by. Many restaurants, grocery shops, and little stores around.

Erika was very good replying our emails.

The condo was normally very quiet. The only exception was when the garbage trucks came in the early morning. But it didn't bother us because I was already awake, and my husband never heard it.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Erika!! This was such a perfect spot to stay with my husband, 19 month old baby, and parents. Everything that we needed was here, including a cooler, which Erika let us borrow for a few more days after our trip. We enjoyed the lanai so much. The kitchen was well stocked, there were beach towels, it was quiet and centrally located. We absolutely loved staying here, and would again if we were to return to Kona someday (I sure hope so!) Erika was wonderful to work with, and was easy to communicate with and promptly replied. Much Mahalo, Joslin
