Perfect location on the Kona Coast; and killer sunsets.
Close to everything.
Condo stay was great minus one thing, the bath and beach towels smelled terrible (like sour onions?). During the second day we all noticed we smelled weird after drying off. Discovered the towels were the culprit so we tried washing them (condo has a washer and dryer). After the first wash they still smelled so we washed them again on Hot and extra rinse, didn't work. Its the washer itself that smells awful. I assume guests throw wet towels in the washer upon check out and they sit for a day or two, the dishwasher smelled off as well but nothing like the washing machine. We bought towels at Longs down the street, now on to all the positive things. Condo is close to pretty much everything near Kona, also had a couple coolers we took to the beach everyday so no need to bring one. The condo is in great location on the water, only thing separating you from the water is lava rock. You hear the waves crashing all night, pretty cool, not too loud for you light sleepers. Kitchen was nice, large fridge, all cooking gear you'll need, there were the tiny ants on the countertop in the corner but I heard thats normal in Hawaii. We went with another couple and plenty of room for everyone to not feel cramped in the 2 bed 2 bath place. Theres a couple large plug in fans to utilize if you get hot middle of the night. We didnt need to contact the owners while we stayed and there is a binder that had instructions for pretty much everything. A local guy leaves a farmers market basket for your arrival with fruit and coffee. Like I said, I loved most the location. With a rental car you are close enough to do/see tons. I emailed the owner before writing this to mention the washer but no response. I would probably rent again, even if I had to bring/buy towels. If washer issue got taken care of I would stay here for all future Kona visits. Thats the only reason I gave a 4 instead of 5. Great value as well.
thanks for the great review. Just a quick note about the dishwasher and towels; we were having issues with the dishwasher so we replaced it with a new high quality one. Not certain what the problem was with the towels. In the many years of our condo rental, we have never had that issue and it wasn't noticed by the Cleaning person either. Like you mentioned, maybe a previous Guest left wet towels in the washer. Also if the supplied H.D.laundry soap wasn't used, that might contribute to the "off" smell. In any case, no "smell" has been detected before of since. Thanks for your feedback, we always strive to improve our Guests" stay at our condo. K Spitze
Stunningly beautiful. .
Beautiful location. Stunningly charming unit by the sea. Super comfy bed.
Would loved to have had air conditioning though .
Breathtaking view... beautiful accommodations
This condo was just perfect for our time on the Big Island. The unit was immaculately clean, well stocked with anything that might be needed. We loved the king bedroom ocean side view and comfort. It is located close to shopping and restaurants. A great place to relax surrounded by beautiful gardens. We will definitely return!
We stayed in August
The property is really nice, and clean. lots of supplies in the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry detergent pods . It was very nice that the owner welcome us a basket with fruits, and coffee. We really enjoy our stay, definitely stay here when we come back to Kona.
The condo is wonderful, great location, had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
Thank you for all the personal touches that made it feel like home.
We would like to stay again !
