Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect. It has a roomy layout, a homey feel and great amenities like a/c, dishwasher, coffee, washer/dryer, etc. The shower needs more pressure but that's probably Kona in general. The manager was easy to communicate with and we never even met face to face. I disagree that it's run down; it had an authentic island feel to it. I'm glad we found this place!

Overall good stay

  • 3 of 5

Our experience at the rental was good although the unit is worn, the patio slider in the bedroom completely off the tracks and not functional, the living room slider worked after husband put it back on tracks but had to be careful with it, the shower head in the master bedroom needs replacement, we did kill one live roach and found dead ones appearing periodically but likely typical in older buildings in the area, the TV in living room was impossible to get working properly (but who goes to Kona to watch TV we gave up). Overall unit could use some love...But the grounds are well kept we enjoyed the Pool and BBQ out front and the unit is located in the back of complex away from the road so it was nice and quiet, air conditioning worked, had a good parking space which we needed for rental car because it was a bit to far to walk into Kailua-Kona for restaurants and night life and for the price it was good.

Nicely decorated

  • 3 of 5

We had problems with the television working. Management correct the problem with help from my husband. The showers sucked not enough hot water. And there is no view of the ocean in less you lean over the side of the railing.

Big unit. Well stocked with everything that we needed for 9 day stay

The only problem is that this is an old building and the walls are not sound proof. we could everything above and below us. No view of the ocean

Not impressed

  • 3 of 5

The property itself is very nice the pool was great and it was across the street from the beach for beautiful sunsets!

I just would not recommend the apartment we stayed in. We had multiple issues on arrival and we had to contact the booking manager and she did come out and address the following : finding dirty dishes in the cupboard, bathroom not being clean, fitted sheets in master so old they had to be replaced, they had to bring garbage bags and toilet paper.

The TV never did work for the entire stay (satellite dish problems ?) and they never had anyone come out to repair it. The internet was intermittent and they could not explain it.

Buenos Aires

great location, comfortable for 4 people

  • 4 of 5

Well laid out condo, 2 baths, a little "used" but for the price and area, it was nice. The pool and Jacuzzi great after a long day hiking or at the ocean. We drove to the best beaches and sights; the beach near the condo is ok but a half hour drive away there are dreamy paradise beaches. Bring your own laundry detergent and a couple of large trash bags, some dish washer detergent because the condo only had trash bags and dish washer pellets for 2 days and we stayed longer than that. The 5th bed, the sofa bed, uncomfortable.
