Condo was substandard!

  • 2 of 5

The site was well located in the town with walking access to stores, restaurants and the ocean across the street, which we enjoyed. However, in the condo, itself, there were 5 mirrors and every one of them, was dirty. The paper towels were virtually empty, and any additional toilet paper needed to be purchased by the renter. There was constant work being done outside the condo, blocking 3-4 parking spaces (parking is severely limited, as it is) with consistent noise all day. and prevented ease of access to our condo. The pool, hot spa, and grills were unavailable from Jan 25-28. (One grill was relocated to a roof in the complex). Someone spilt coffee on the stairway. It was reported to the desk, but it was left to dry up. In my opinion, the condo should not have been rented out during this period by the owner, as it caused undue hardship on the renters.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately we have No Control when Emergencies and Unexpected work needs to be done on items like the Pool, etc. No One Can Predict when that is going to happen and we have no control over it. We CANNOT Stop Renting units just because work Might Need to be done. It is just like at your Home, You Cannot Control When they are going to do Electrical, Cable, Street Work, Etc around your House and Neighborhood and to Suggest that Condo Rentals should Cease Because Work Might need to be done is Ridiculous. This Guest Obviously is NOT a Home owner and does not know that owners Rely on Rentals for their 2nd Homes that they allow guests and strangers to rent. Even Hotels Do Work Continuously, and They Close thier Pools, Hot Tubs, Etc. Maintenance work has to be done and unfortunately we have No Control When that Work will need to be done. Gayle (Agent)

Kona Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a great unit, just as described. You are in the heart of Kona and it is wonderful to have everything within walking distance. We had internet in our room which was great when we would come back to the room at night. There are restaurants, shops & the farmers market all very close.

Great Location and Very Quite even during Iron Man Week

  • 4 of 5

The studio is well equiped but could use a local phone and a kettle, updating of sink and shower would enhance the overall expereince but the location is great (you can walk to all your needs) and the pool/hottub and BBQ's are a 10 out of 10 (sparkling clean). Pleasant lobby area and very good support from hotels front office staff I would stay here again

Our favorite place to visit is the national park, Place of Refuge (or Pu'uhonua o Honaunau in Hawaiian). It is a historical site with 500 year old stone walls, petroglyphs, re-constructed temples and Hawaiian houses and some of the best tide pools, turtle sunning areas and a great beach for scuba, snorkeling, swimming and people-watching. It is worth the admission and the free parking. We go to the picnic area that faces the ocean to the south of the park---same route into area ---and watch the dolphins frolic right near the beach eating lunch at one of the many picnic tables available. This is about a 22 mile or a 45 min drive from the condo. For one of the top 10 beaches in the world , drive 45 min to Hapuna Beach. There is a HUGE perfect pale sand beach over a mile wide. The waves are perfect for boogie-boarding, body-surfing and swimming. There is a snack shop, showers, bathrooms and changing rooms. There is a fantastic beach trail going north where you will see whales in the distance all Winter long (take binoculars). The best shave ice (snow cones on steroids) on the whole island (maybe the whole state) is 4-5 miles north of Hapuna and is fantastic for after-beach cooling off before dinner. It is right near the little town of Kawaihae. We love to kayak at Captain Cook Bay (aka Kealakekua) and the snorkeling is so good a lot of the all-day cruises come to this bay for snorkeling, scuba, swimming and sea life watching (turtles, dolphins, birds). Going to the east side of the island is another world; MUCH more rain and the tropical vegetation is thick and beautiful. There are waterfalls, world renowned botanical gardens and fantastic state parks. On the southeast side of the island is Volcanoes National Park that has incredible attractions like hiking through a former volcano crater, exploring caves and lava tubes, a fantastic hands on museum about the islands and their formation, hikes along the lava at the ocean's rim where you may be able to find some flowing lava depending on the way the volcano is erupting (remember--it is 2000 degrees--you don't want to get too close). Park service does try to keep people away from the lava---you won't accidentally stumble into it!
