Guestbook comments from the owner

Kath & Bruce, thank you so much for sharing your condo. We did enjoy the sunset from Mauna Kea and experienced Waipio Valley and have enjoyed every minute on the lanai. It has been great fun watching the surfers. We would like to come back in 2013 to the Ironman in October.

My family of four stayed here for a week. The condo is very well outfitted from kitchen to beach supplies! We enjoyed watching the surfers every morning and afternoon! I found the pool area a bit small and sun disappears around 3 but it’s clean and well maintained! I would recommend this place!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our home. Our pool is newly remodeled and beautiful! It is wonderful for laying out in the morning and early afternoon sun but walking a few feet to the beach for the later afternoon sun can't be beat! Aloha, Kathy & Bruce

amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My kids were in awe when we walked in the door. Every morning we sat on the lanai and watched the surfers. Had a couple questions for the owners and they quickly responded. Fully equipped will all beach needs and kitchen needs. Loved having the door key pad rather than a key lock, made it easy not to hassle with sharing a key. Very clean and well kept/updated. We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our vacation. I would highly recommend this condo. Thank you.

We'll be back

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us, just a few minutes by car to a nearby supermarket or to the center of Kailua-Kona. Many tips from Kathy we tried to make, especially the Manta snorkeling was a one-of-a-kind experience. Initial problems in the condo were quickly forgotten, also because Kathy immediately felt responsible. The breakfast on the balcony was already worth the trip.

I would not be the daughter of my father if I didn't always know how to improve something. All in all we enjoyed our stay very much and there's so much more to do or just relax. We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you Vienna for your review and again, I apologize for the mix up on your arrival. We are very please that you enjoyed your stay and will return again. There are so many things to do and see on this island it is hard to get it all in on one visit. We look forward to hearing back from you in the future. Aloha, Kathy & Bruce

This is an absolute OCEAN FRONT location! Close to town, farmers market, arts &crafts and great snorkeling beaches. On famous 'Banyons' pro-surfing Beach. Lyman's' beach, just down the street for the intermediate surfer. Kahaluu Beach Park just 1 mile south for beginner surfers and swimming. Watch the surfers from sun up to sun set. Watch the sea turtles in their natural habitat below your lanai. Lot's of tide pools too! Seasonal Whale watching is spectacular! The true feeling of HAWAII...
