A delightful retreat in busy Kona

  • 5 of 5

This breezy, comfortable, casually elegant apartment served us beautifully on a week's stay in Kona. Both the living room and the master bedroom open to the lanai so you are never far from the sound of the waves and a wide view of the sea. Apparently the big wave in front of the Banyon Tree is a classic surfing site, and it's fun to watch any time from dawn to dusk. The apartment is meticulously kept, and the hosts provide excellent snorkeling equipment and lots of toys for venturing out to nearby beaches. We go to Kona every year or two to visit family and hope to stay in this serene retreat again.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

Bob was friendly and easy to deal with. The condo was spotless and it's easy to see that the owners care about keeping it in tip-top shape. Bob and Ronda have thoughtfully provided all household wares as well as the beach equipment needed - evening a guidebook to the island! The location is superb - right on the shore overlooking Banyan's, a popular surf spot. The condo complex has a pool and hot tub. It's easy to get around from where the condo is located - not far from great beaches and snorkeling, and just a quick drive to Kailua. There is a small market across the street and delicious poke at Da Poke Shack just a few steps away. By and large, the evening trade winds cool things off nicely, however as a future upgrade, two or three wall-mounted ductless air conditioning units might merit consideration. Overall this is a great value and I would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. As you said, the trade breezes keep things comfortable. The air conditioned condos do cost $30-$50 more per night, so we're glad you recognize the value. We actually are considering adding air conditioning, but are concerned the extra cost/nt might impact more guests than the convenience of AC. We welcome any thoughts on the idea.

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful vacation in this perfect condo.

All the amenities, a perfect location on the 4th floor for watching all the activities on the water. Couldn't ask for more. We plan on returning again and again. Bob and Rhonda are very accommodating and want their guests to have a great experience, and we always do.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded the condo description-what can I say--the view, the condo, location, well equipped rooms along with beach and water sport equipment all were wonderful. Every day, from sunrise to sunset, the surfers were right outside with wonderful views. Get ready for the evening sunsets. Bob is a delight to work with and sent wonderful instructions. We enjoyed our 10 day stay over the 2016 holidays and hope to return another time. I have already recommended this condo to several of my NYC and CT friends.

Great Place! We Will Be Back!!

  • 5 of 5

I was super impressed by this condo, clean, and comfortable. The location was perfect, can't beat the sounds of crashing waves. We were close enough to all the touristy stuff, but far away not to deal with all the people. Condo was very large, it was only 2 of us. The condo could easily have 6 people in it comfortably. The views were amazing right outside on your private lanai, I could see fish, and even saw a turtle from 4 stories up. The kitchen had all we needed for our snacking we did, we ate out most days/nights. I could see you could cook full meals there if you wanted to. The pool area was clean, right on the water, and they have 2 grills down there if you wanted to BBQ. The wifi worked great for the work I had to do. Plenty of covered parking in the garage below building. There even was a little store across the street that sold wine, beer, and snacks. Bob was even kind enough to let us check in a bit early, and check out a couple hours later than his usual time. I own several properties which I have on VRBO, Bob does it like I do. I would not hesitate, and will rent again from Bob.

Banyans Surf Break and Tropical Breezes

  • 5 of 5

Kona side for the Queen Lilokalani Outrigger race and needed a good location close to downtown. We picked the condo for the view and I was hesitant because I didn't think the movable wall would be private enough traveling with another couple, I was pleasantly mistaken. It was perfect. Our hosts were in contact well before our stay, I did not have to ask for anything it was all provided including instructions and directions so we were never left wanting. Our friends were fantastic as well which helps but I would highly recommend this condo, it was clean, well equipped, near to all including The Poke Shop (yep, delicious). I would say bring your surfboard if you are a seasoned surfer (mine was wishing he had) we all had a blast watching the surfers mostly locals. Just as photographed the rocks below welcomed us with Aloha until the water washed it away with big surf. All in all, a 10. Note: in HI most outsides of buildings are not fancy and look rundown- this is weather issue and does not reflect the overall condition of the inside so go in, relax and watch the surf from bed, living room or the lanai and enjoy Hawaii! We will be back.
