About Sam Valenti

I came to Hawaii in 2001 fresh out of college. I worked in the Chemistry field for a few years before I moved on to Computer's and eventually running a non-profit community theatre. Just recently I was given the opportunity to travel where ever I want. So the travel bug inside me turned my condo into a vacation rental. Hopefully you'll enjoy my home as much as I do.

Sam Valenti purchased this condo in 2002

Why Sam Valenti chose Kailua-Kona

I chose this property because it was close to town and quiet. I'd looked at ones nearby but they didn't have the same feel. It had a nice view to remind me I live in Hawaii.

What makes this condo unique

I think you'll like it for all the same reasons I do, but also because it is walking distance to so many things. If you just wanted a place to relax and not explore the other parts of the island I would dare say you don't even need a car. Also this condo is still my home and has all of the things you could really need. Especially in the kitchen. Please enjoy and think of it as your 'Home away from Home'

Very clean, conveniently located and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights in early March. Sam was very helpful and accommodating. Nice place for 2 adults and 2 smaller kids if they come along. Centrally located between the northern big sandy body surfing beaches and the southern snorkeling spots. Great value as all we did was eat and sleep there. Kids loved the boogie boards and we used a couple pairs of snorkel gear already there.

Great condo close to stores and Ali'i drive.

  • 5 of 5

Every home has pros and cons. I felt this condo was priced correctly considering where it is.


Location, clean, beach toys, fully equiped kitchen, close to stores and markets. Priced correctly for space. There is a partial view of the ocean from the lanai. Also had a queen sized air mattress that fit perfectly in the living room.


The queen size bed felt old/ bouncy.

Shower water pressure appeared low.

Could use a new updated toilet as it didn't flush well and it appears to be a high flow trying to work with limited pressure.

Stairs going to the condo instead of ramps. (Didn't bother me, but it would be difficult if disabled.)

We couldn't get the pool keys to work, but the beach is close enough.


If traveling here keep in mind some stores do not offer bags for the items purchased.

As another review stated, the upstairs neighbors are a little loud but we stayed out most of everyday.

Overall we really enjoyed staying here. I will be looking for this rental again in the future.

Thank you for letting us rent your condo!

Everything you could need on vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Sam's condo and were impressed by all of the amenities in the unit. He has thought of everything you could need. The location is perfect and you can walk to everything in town including dining and shopping. The sunsets on the shoreline were beautiful. Sam is friendly and easy to reach - not that we had any major issues. We had a great lunch at Lava, Lava Club north of Kona with amazing scenery and excellent food. For a very special meal, go to the Beach Tree restaurant at 4 Seasons. Very pricey but for lunch is a wonderful experience. Thanks, Sam

Good position , comfortable unit for 2

  • 4 of 5

Perfect position for very short walk to beach behind King K hotel and to shops. Only 4 stars as although air conditioning available the unit gets little flow through breeze to cool. Old style unit but Sam has all you need in kitchen from ice maker to blender. A little noisy through night from other residents , but this was Ironman Week so perhaps quite different at other times. Sam is very available for any queries and a perfect host.

Comfy, spacious, well-appointed with great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location just a block or so away from the beach and Ali'i Drive. Clean with very comfortable furniture. Neighbors were friendly and the pool and spa were lovely after a long day. Parking is assigned and close. We never had to contact the owner/manager as all the instructions left in VRBO were complete. The swim/beach toys came in handy as did the washer and dryer. I strongly recommend this vacation rental for anyone visiting Kona!
