Fabulous First Visit To Kona....

  • 5 of 5

We loved the unit!!!! It was super clean and very well appointed. Perfect amount of space for just myself and hubby. We came here for our 10 year anniversary in route to Kauai where we were married. Vicki had left a very sweet personal note as well as a bottle of wine. It made us feel super welcome and excited to start our vacation. It's in a great location with lots of great places to eat and shop nearby. We unfortunately were there when the volcano was having major activity and the park was closed, so we didn't get to visit there, but the unit is in a great location for accessing the north shores and south shores, as well as the volcano when open again. When we had an issue with the internet Vicki responded quickly with a quick and easy fix. If we ever return to Kona we will definitely be staying here! Thanks Vicki for everything.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are exactelly what this lovely place looks like. It’s worked perfectly for the 3 of us. It’s close to town, 10 minute car drive, and to all other stores. The welcoming book had lots of useful information as well. The sunset by the pool was lovely. Vicky was fantastic and even made sure the light were on when we arrived, our plane landed later than the check in time. I would definitely stay here again.

Really worked well for me staying alone. Even worked ok when a friend stayed a few days too. Downside, someone smoking next door and I couldn’t open windows or doors unless I wanted to smell like cigarettes.

Owner's Response: We are really glad that you enjoyed the condo and that it worked for you and your guest. I was very sorry to hear about the smoke smell and spoke to the neighbor in question and he sends his apologies and no longer smokes in or near his unit.

Very clean unit with all the amenities. Above average furnishings were very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Everything in the unit was meant to insure that visitors had a great experience. Loved the private lanai; and the pool area next to the ocean provided unobstructed views of those gorgeous Kona sunsets. When the Internet went down, the owner responded quickly and fixed the problem.
