Finally- as VRBO as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything we expected - and some. The huge sliding door onto a lanai you could live on, the sound of the surf at breakfast, the quality furniture, the spaciousness of the rooms and the bathrooms all contributed to making our Big Island week relaxing and soothing. The shopping mall up the hill provided us with all we needed, including a wonderful morning with local ladies teaching us to make leis and do the hula. The snorkel beach across the street is wonderful, turtles and scores of different coloured fish.

I can definitely recommend this. The owners are clearly thinking of everything that will make a holidaymaker's vacation trouble-free and pleasant.

Good Location, Well Stocked, Very Satisfied.

  • 4 of 5

My son, wife, and I stayed in the unit for 8 days in June. The listing and other reviews were accurate, so no surprises when we arrived. The unit was just fine for us, with large bathrooms, a nice deck, and a well stocked kitchen (utensils, pots/pans, water filter, etc...). The bedroom AC units worked well and there was a nice breeze during the evenings. We were really pleased with all of the supplies and amenities; plenty of kitchen items, washer/dryer + soap, speedy wireless, beach towels, and lots of beach gear in the storage unit (beach chairs were a real plus). In addition, the location is up the street from a great snorkeling beach and a nearby rental shop (SUPs, boogie boards, surf boards). The grocery store, gas station, other stores and a couple of restaurants were right up the road. Downtown Kailua-kona was short drive, all in all the condo had great access. We give it 4 stars, it worked great for us and the price was right.

We try to keep the kitchen well stocked and this is good confirmation that it is! Come back and visit us next year and enjoy the many benefits at Kahaluu Bay Villas! Aloha to you.

Great convenient location, nice rooms

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to stay with a family, and want a place with a good kitchen, this is it. I loved being close to the public beach (great snorkeling) and it worked out fine with my small children. Don't expect fine sand, it's gravely but good enough for filling plastic buckets. The pool was fun for the kids as well the BBQ was a good option for making dinner.

The bedrooms had air conditioners so you could sleep cool. We were there during a hot spell and it was definitely hot. Do note that the main living area isn't air conditioned but you can draw air through the apartment by opening the front door.

Some of the fans were installed incorrectly and didn't blow down air like they should. I couldn't figure out how to reverse them.

If you're not used to them, yes, there's bugs. Cockroach traps were set around the place. But the tropics have bugs.

If you're like me and cooking, bring your own knives because you know if you rent a place, there are about 10 not-so-sharp knives to choose from.

I'll give this place 5 stars, not because it's perfect but because it was a good deal at a fair price and exactly what I had hoped for.

Amazing location and spacious unit

  • 4 of 5

We brought our four daughters - ages 13,12,11 and 8 here for spring break. The location is fantastic and Kahaluu Bay has incredible snorkling. We swam with turtles every day and the kids did surf lessons across from the condo. The unit is also only 2 minutes from a great shopping centre with a large grocery store and drug store. The condo is well stocked and had everything we needed. We really appreciated all the beach gear - mats, chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards etc. in the storage locker. It was great to watch the sunset from our balcony every night and watch our kids having fun in the pool. The building is well maintained. My only feedback is that the carpet is in need of replacement or deep cleaning and the sofa bed has seen better days - my kids ended up putting the mattress on the floor and that worked out fine for them. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you for your 4 star review and so glad you enjoyed the snorkel beach across the street! Yes, there are a lot of items to use and play with for the beach and pool. Glad your kids had a great 'spring break' in Hawaii and did a lot of snorkeling and lessons! Come back and stay with us again, we would love it, and perhaps by then there will be new carpet!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I brought our 3 kids to this condo & we enjoyed every minute of our stay! The location was convenient. The condo was spacious & had everything we needed. The pool area was great for those evenings we wanted to stay in & grill dinner while the kids swam in the pool. The "neighbors" we met at the pool area were all friendly & welcoming. We would love to return!
