Direct Oceanfront 1 BR (King Bed), 1 BA Condo
Why Leslie chose Kailua-Kona
Location, Location, Location !!! You have an unbelieveable 360 degree view of the Kona Coast line and a beautiful beach next door.
What makes this Condo unique
Enjoying your meals (and cocktails) from the lanai watching the sunsets/sunrise and all of the ocean activitity going on right in front of you. It is hard to leave the lanai! With the great location you are just a short walk to restaurants and shops. Oh...and the oceanfront pool...a great way to relax or just read a book.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This was my first trip to the big island and I loved it. This condo was perfectly located, the interior was nice and the views were outstanding. I will definitely come back!
We enjoyed our stay
Everything was there what we needed. I do strongly suggest a new house keeper. Unit was a little dirty.
Lanai fan blades were warped. Just a replacement is all it needs
Kona Reef Big Island Kailua Kona
We only stayed one night out of eight that we booked. Obviously we lost our prepaid booking fee that was paid in full.
The building is grim, uncared for and badically a dump.
The unit is direct oceanfront as promised but the bedroom is cramped and claustrophobic with bare basics bedding and no openable window. The towels are cheap and thin and soaps and shampoo from the lowest shelves at Walmart.
The pool area is not inviting, little of the hawaiian landscape that one might expect and the plastic
panels in the pool security border are now translucent and ugly.
Worst of all we had a terrible time getting the lock box open at the entry door as there is no light over it , just a shared down light for the other door and this entry also felt unsafe due to the poor to non existent lighting.
I would be happy to forward my closing statement at our beach hotel that we are checking out of today to the owner ‘Leslie’ to prove we left after the first night.
I fully understand that under the terms of her contract no refund is possible but my goal was to salvage this trip, albeit at
substantial cost. I would strongly advise potential guests to look elsewhere.......
The bedroom windows do open. There are 2 operable sliding windows above the bed. We are very surprised you did not contact us immediately about your concerns. Prior guests have not found issue with the building, grounds or condo in the 17 years owing the unit. The ocean-front condo complex is a well-known sought after resort to stay with numerous returning guests. The bedroom bedding is brand new from Tommy Bahama’s (3 months old) and you can see the size of the bedroom from the pictures online before renting. In addition to the starter shampoo provided prior guests will leave shampoo for future guests. We do not judge the brands they buy. Since your flight arrived in the morning and checked in early in the afternoon the lockbox was easily accessible for the one-time use. As for the hall light next to the door I believe the HOA will be switching bulbs from florescence to LED. I have no guarantee that you did not returned to the unit to use the kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. during your stay as was evident by the dirty dishes left, w/d used, coffee grounds left in coffee pot and leftovers in refrigerator (per manager evaluating unit).
My wife and I had a great time!
Great location, nice unit, thank you.
Beautiful location and a nice unit. Very well stocked with kitchen items and books to read. We had to buy Kleenex and toilet paper which ran out. We did not realize there would be no housekeeping services which you might want to make clear up front. Thank you for opening your vacation spot up to us.
Just steps from the water, the perfect location
Couldn't have picked a better place to stay for our anniversary. The condo is beautifully updated and tastefully decorated with a fully stocked kitchen. The view from the lanai is spectacular for watching beautiful Hawaiian sunsets, spinner dolphins and water activities. Leslie, the owner, was easy to work with and accommodating. The complex is very nice and centrally located within walking distance of numerous restaurants and shops. We will definitely stay here again.
Volcano Viewing, Zip Lining, Bird Watching, Fishing, View turtles, dolphins & whales from the lanai or on a boat cruise, Restaurants & Night Life just a short walk to town, Luaus, Helicopter Rides, Deep Sea Fishing, or ... just RELAX and enjoy the sunset from your Lanai
