    Lovely Oceanfront Condo Complex

    My husband and I spent 5 nights here while visiting the Big Island for the first time, and already want to return. The location is just outside a busy tourist area yet central to highways, restaurants, etc. Traffic in the area can be crazy in the late afternoon and especially due to some road construction. The condo complex feels like a quiet oasis overlooking the ocean and some great sunsets. The beach in front is rocky and not suitable for swimming or snorkeling, although we did watch one guy surfing. The complex grounds contain tropical plantings and are well maintained. There is a gated fresh water swimming pool outside and a hot tub. A "saltwater pool" built into the beach is actually not maintained by the condo complex and there's a warning sign on the fence around it, but people were climbing over and using it. There is a meeting room onsite, seating areas and barbecues, but no restaurant. Reception people were friendly and helpful. The condos with balconies are individually owned, and ours was on the 2nd floor (#205). We would ask to be in a different room next time because a wall on one side of the balcony obstructed our view. Otherwise everything was great. Ours was a 1 bedroom, 2 bath unit with well equipped kitchen, large living/dining area with pullout couch, tvs in each room, safe, washer/dryer and very attractive updated decor. The bed was comfortable and had plenty of pillows. AC and wifi worked well. The only noise we noticed was when people walked by talking loudly on the walkway next to the bedroom. Otherwise it was quiet. The large balcony had a table, 4 swivel stool chairs and a lounger. Daily housekeeping and free parking are included. I can think of no negatives, and we would definitely stay here again.

    Rooms are great, kitchen is very well equipped with crockery/cutlery. For BBQ you have 3 gas fired ranges near the swimming pool on the grounds, and if don’t wanna cook, there are good eating places in a 1 mile radius. View from the room is just awesome !!!! - You can sit in the balcony or by the sea for hours, listening to the waves crashing on the rocks. If you are lucky you can even see a sea turtle or two. In short ... a great place to just unwind and be lazy :-)

    This condo met our needs. We were hardly in our room because there is so much to see and do on the Big Island. The view of the ocean and surroundings out the lanai patio doors was incredible. We never turned on the TV once. The air conditioning was adequate however we had to borrow a fan for the bedroom because it was still too warm for sleeping despite the controlled temperature of 72F. The a/c wasn’t dispersing as well out the vent in the bedroom as it did for the living room. The cleaning staff were so friendly and professional. They arrived between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. each morning to clean the room. A couple mornings I was still tired so I did not have them clean. They are required to come in every 48 hours by management. We received a notification last night advising of pesticide spraying that is planned for today. It is a tropical destination therefore once a month they spray baseboards etc fo keep critters out. If you do not want your unit sprayed just let the front desk know. The pool is clean and so is the hot tub. The grounds are meticulously maintained. If you are planning to stay in then I’m sure you will notice the thick layers of dust on the bamboo furniture in the nooks and crannies. It is heaviest at the bottom around the legs. You will notice the paint job which make the unit not as aesthetically pleasing.. Overall the condo is clean and you are hardly going to spend any time in it. The sound of the surf will lull you to sleep or mesmerize you into relaxation. The kitchen was somewhat equipped and it was great to make a home cooked meal. Their are a few bbq’s for the guests to use for cooking. Overall the place is quiet. Our neighbours above have children and we can hear them running and rolling marbles or balls on the floor. It’s a little irritating since we were used to the peaceful quite the first week Jew were here. I am tempted to come back for the experience and the location near the ocean.

    Great Condo on the sea

    had a great 4 night stay here. clean room a bit dated but very comfortable. Do not stay though if you want amenities. No food or drink on the property. but decent kitchen to prepare your own. pretty close to all action in Kona. Super near by Coffee farms etc. We loved the staff and loved our stay! Thank You!

    This was a nice place but we didn't like that there wasn't a regular wall between the living area and the masterbedroom. We just stayed 1 night so it wasn't terribly bad but if we had stayed longer, that feature would have been a problem for sleep with a family of 4.
