Our unit is family operated. The Big Island has been home for over 13 years. It is peaceful, with a bit of small town heart to it. We love the beaches, mountains, paniolo country, forests, vegetation, volcano, rain forest, gold coast, plantation towns, and so much more--always something new to discover!
It may be a Big Island, but you just might meet someone you know in this small world.
English and Spanish spoken and Aloha offered to make your visit with us memorable.
We have placed much aloha and into this property to make it enjoyable for your visit. It is intended to offer a place of refuge from the business and complications of life. It offers peace and serenity, and a lovely view while still being within easy access to the wonderful sights and activities that Kona and the Big Island have to offer.
End unit, ground floor level, no smoking complex/no drug/no pet
Designated parking next to unit with guest spaces.
We stayed in January 2017. The things I liked best about the condo were that it is very private, we didn't have to go up any stairs, the assigned parking spot was close to the front door, the condo was extremely well stocked with kitchen items, linens, and beach gear, and the condo and resort grounds were nicely maintained. The condo is an end unit and is tucked up against shrubs on one side and a golf course behind the condo. This makes it very private. The king size bed is very comfortable. The condo was very clean. The condo is within walking distance of a KTA grocery store and shops and restaurants. It is also within walking distance of Keahou Bay where you can take cruises or snorkeling tours (and great sunsets). The farmers market on Saturdays in the shopping center parking lot was very good. There is also a farmers market at the Sheraton on Fridays and Saturdays that was more of a gift market (not any produce). The beach gear included beach towels, two camping chairs, two boogie boards, noodles, beach mats, and some snorkeling masks. There is also a bath mat provided that we used to line the trunk of our car to try to keep the trunk clean. Gladys has really thought of everything! We didn’t need to use the air conditioning since the condo has several ceiling fans and a pedestal fan. The condo cooled right down once the sun went down with the patio doors open since it is on the ground floor. We did not use the pool since there were too many other places to visit during the day and the pool is closed after sunset. One tip for travelers: Bring re-usable bags for groceries. Stores do not supply plastic shopping bags (most have paper bags though). We went to Walmart and were very surprised that they did not provide any bags for our groceries. They were even sold out of re-usable bags. The other tip is that if you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs since the golf course sprinkler system comes on in the middle of the night and it woke us up. We never met Gladys but we communicated by texting and she always got back to me quickly when I had questions. I would recommend this condo to anyone visiting Kona and would definitely stay there again. It is a very good value and is truly a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay.
What a beautiful and convenient place to stay while exploring the Kailua Kona area! This condo was beautifully decorated with all of the extras (snorkel gear, beach towels, kitchen accessories) to make it easy to feel at home. The Keauhou Shopping center was very convenient and packed full of places to get necessities (KTA grocery store), extras (yummy crepes, Hawaiian BBQ, independent book store, etc) as well as cultural events (lei making and hula performance). Our kids loved swimming in the pool and playing in the back yard.
The only minor drawback is that it is a condo in a 4 unit building. The neighbors were mostly very quiet, but being used to living in a house, we had to adjust to the noises from people with different schedules than ours.
Bright, cheery, clean and comfortable condo, with a spacious kitchen, 2 bathrooms and a nice king-sized bed for great sleeping-air conditioner in bedroom, 2 ceiling fans in main area plus cross ventilation through screened doors. The condo provided everything we needed for a wonderful stay (including a cooler, beach towels, and chairs for outings!). Washer/dryer was a real plus! A good location, felt private and safe, pool was great, very close to a shopping center, restaurants, theater and farmer's markets just up the hill. The bay was a nice short walk (or drive) just down the hill, great for a dip in the ocean. Enjoyed having coffee in the mornings on the back patio, looking at all the flowers and palms and listening to the birds. Gladys provided us real warm gracious hospitality, and we thank her for such a great experience. Mahalo!
This was an absolutely wonderful experience. The condo location is perfect - 5 min to the shore with perfect opportunity for an evening stroll and sunset.
Condo fully equipped and has everything you need. Our family (two adults and two teenage boys) felt right at home were we found everything that required for comfortable stay at Big Island. Parking space was right at the door and fully secure. Gladys was so helpful and welcomed us as old friends. We will recommend this condo to our friends and already looking forward to visit it again!.
This condo was perfect. It was very comfortably furnished. Loved having the washer dryer and the full kitchen. Great to have the BBQ on the lanai. The location is great. Very quiet and peaceful. The grounds of the complex are really nice too.
Gladys has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable.
We will definitely be back. We come over twice a year and are happy that we have found a new rental that we love.
