Better than advertised, would recommend highly
We were visiting Kona for the first time. The condo was very nice and comfortable. Fully equipped with everything you could need. Beautiful view of the ocean. Marni was easy to communicate with and answered questions quickly. The condo was on the south end of the main street along the beach. Far enough not to hear all the bar music at night but plenty close to walk to it if we wanted. Road noise can get a little loud but wasn’t too bothersome. Overall it was a very pleasant stay.
This being our 24th Kona trip, we know the drill. B24 met and exceeded our expectations: Clean, nice amenities and upgrades and a very responsive manager.
We already booked another stay.
The location is fantastic! Close enough to walk but far enough that you don’t feel like you’re in the thick of the town and tourists.
Head out to the pool to watch the sunset and hear some residents blow conch shells.
The place itself is super comfortable for two people and Marni is an awesome host!
We loved staying here. The view of the ocean and sound of the waves was fantastic. As a bonus, we overlooked Honl Park where every day there was yoga, people playing in the surf, boogie boarders, kids having fun and colorful people of all sorts. Marni was wonderful. The few minor glitches we encountered, she attended to immediately. Thank you!
We had a great stay, it was a perfect little place for my wife & I to celebrate her 50th birthday. Beach right off the balcony & a close walk to waterfront dining & shopping. Had a great time & the host even left us some chocolate covered macadamia nuts & coffee for staying. Very sweet! The only complaint we had is that we couldn’t stay longer. Hope we didn’t leave too big of a mess. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. Tim & April
This property offered everything we needed for our stay, down to all details including yoga mats, beach towels and labels for everything. Marni was excellent as the host. Mahalo.
Excellent condo right on the ocean. Short walk to town. Marni thought of everything you might need to make your stay feel like home. Personalized condo feels like a beach house. Comfy bed, living space. Lots of towels and bedding and a washer and dryer. Kitchen well equipped for cooking. with oil, spices, foil, Saran, baggies etc. Beach chairs, umbrella, coolers, boogie boards and snorkel equipment make going to the beach for the day a breeze. Beautiful outdoor spaces with your lani and large pool and bbq area to enjoy. Would love to go back. I could spend the winter in this condo.
Simply wonderful. Great amenities! Having access to beach chairs, snorkeling gear, and boogie board made the trip even more enjoyable. We were on our third of seven day here when my wife says she wants to stay here again.
The property overlooks a small public beach where one can relax, watch boogie boarders, do yoga, or read a book in the shade. We enjoyed access to the complex's pool and grills. Just enough away from the main activity on Ali'i Drive, to feel away from the hubbub, but close enough to walk. Depended on the free trolley to go shopping for groceries and visit beaches to the south. Enjoyed it very much. Marni provided essentials: coffee, beach chairs, snorkel equipment, boogie boards. Much appreciated.
This place has every single thing you could ask for. The well thought out amenities are above most other places we’ve stayed. High quality dishes, towels, super comfy bed - just a wonderful stay overall.
This apartment was perfect for our ten-day stay. We spent countless hours on the lanai, which overlooks a lovely slice of the Kona Coast. The accommodations were excellent and included a comfortable king bed, a well appointed kitchen, and all the snorkeling and body surfing equipment needed for multiple water sports. The resort has a small but lovely swimming pool that was perfect for a lap swimmer like me. Marni is a responsive and thoughtful host who anticipates and responds to her visitors’ every need. All in all, this VRBO apartment rates five stars ( and more).
We will 100% be returning to Marni’s amazing place! The view! The walking distance to town! The ease of parking! The cleanliness and modernness of the condo! The pool and hot tub with views and sounds of the ocean and the sunset! This place is absolutely perfect and exactly as advertised. My mom did yoga on the beach several mornings - it’s every morning and you don’t have to sign up. Just bring an optional donation for the instructor. Love love love Kona and the entire island and the “Pono” spirit!
Lovely place overlooking a cute public beach and ocean. Pretty birds to watch while eating on the lanai. This place has everything you need for a home away from home on paradise! Excellent communication with the owner.
This condo couldn’t have been more perfect for the two of us. It’s located within walking distance of bars and restaurants, it’s right on the coast, and there are so many amenities. Would stay here again.
Great location, easy walk to shops and restaurants, condo was fully equipped and comfortable.
Wonderfully updated condo in a great location
The location is amazing. Easy to walk to area downtown for lots of choices of restaurants, bars, shopping and the view. Balcony view of the ocean is postcard perfect. The beach is right out the door with shower, bbq and pool area. Beach chairs and boogie boards available. I love wherever I sit in this condo there is a peaceful view. The artwork across from the sofa and chair make me feel cozy. King Bed was very comfortable and roomy. All the amenities to make this kitchen like home including coffee filters to make the Kona coffee you will want to drink. I can't imagine ever being disappointed staying here.
This is without a doubt one of the best condos that I have stayed in during my many visits to Kona. The unit is extremely well furnished, very clean and has a great view of Honl beach and the ocean from the Lanai. It is very quiet, less than a mile walk from the pier, has great dining/shopping nearby and basically has everything that you need from a fully stocked kitchen to ample beach toys to settle right in and enjoy your stay. The recent upgrade of the sliding glass/screen door and the addition of the split system AC makes the unit very easy to relax in and get some of that Kona vibe. I had several interactions with Marni, the owner, during my stay and she was extremely friendly, always had great suggestions and certainly went out of her way to make my stay enjoyable and memorable. The outdoor barbecue area is extremely nice and the sunsets from the pool/beach can not be beat. I can't recommend this condo highly enough and I will hopefully be back for many more visits!!!
We were very happy with our 10 night stay here. This is not a sterile and sparsely outfitted place. The kitchen is equipped to actually use with all appliances and gadgets that you might need. So pleased to find some seasonings and cooking oil and not just a tiny salt and pepper. Great Bosch dishwasher too. Full size washer/dryer in unit is a plus!
Additional benefits were the snorkel gear, boogie boards, ice chest and very nice Tommy Bahama beach chairs for excursions to the beach.
Location is great, we walked into Kona with no problem and the crowning glory is the deck overlooking the small community park next door and the magnificent ocean right outside. Surfers, boogie boarders to watch in the ocean and great people watching in the park. Yoga classes meet there many mornings at 8.
We contacted our host, Marnie to ask if the tv would allow streaming and she said no but she had been thinking about upgrading it so she bought a new one and installed it the next day! How’s that for responsiveness?
Could the decor be a bit updated? Yes. Did it matter? No. We felt at home here and will definitely be back.
Incredible beach front condo that is walking distance to many Kona gems. Condo is well stocked with everything you may need and the lanai is amazing. Marni is an excellent host and the property is perfect.
Lovely beach next door. Snorkels and boogie boards came in handy. Easy walk to the bars/restaurants/shopping. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen.
Our first time on the big island started with 3 nights here. It was a perfect place to be without a car and be able to walk to everything we needed, as well as relax by the ocean side pool and watch beautiful sunsets. Highly recommend this unit for comfort and wonderful amenities. Marnie was so responsive with answering any of our questions and accommodating our every need.
My favorite part was sitting on the lanai overlooking the beautiful ocean. The condo was stocked with everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again.
The homeless in the adjacent park were a let down.
Condo was nice but mater bedroom was small
I can’t say enough about this property it was exactly as described and a great location close to town. The property was clean and well taken care of and pictures advertised are exactly what you will fine inside.
I own a timeshare in Kona but I’ll be back to this property.
Very well situated with easy access to restaurants and shops. Beautiful view. The unit is nicely furnished and very comfortable.
My wife and I visited the Big Island for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. This condo was located within a short walk to everything in Kona. We just walked into town. The condo was beautiful and was stocked with everything needed for our visit. The lanai was perfect! We enjoyed our morning coffee while taking in a fantastic view of the ocean. I can't thing of anything that could have improved our stay. This was the perfect condo for our visit. We had a fantastic time in a beautiful place!
We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was perfect!
Clean and convenient to Kona activities. Very well stocked.. Small beach next door that provides lots of people watching. Would stay here again.
Loved this condo! Beautifully decorated, comfortable bed, all the kitchen supplies you could need, very clean, and an amazing view from the lanai of the ocean and beach. We had breakfast every morning out there. There are also beach chairs, snorkeling gear, beach towels, cooler, etc. in a chest out on the lanai. It is a great location for walking to town. Marni is a fantastic host and although we did not get a chance to meet she was very attentive in checking in with us several times to make sure we were settled when we arrived and later in the week to check if we needed anything re-supplied, quietly leaving those supplies at our front door with a text letting us know they were there. Highly recommend this condo and would definitely stay here again!!
The property was exactly as described. The view from the lanai was beautiful and provided an opportunity to watch surfers catch some nice waves. Everything you might need in a kitchen was there and there were BBQ tools if you decide to cook on any of the community Weber gas grills. The bed was very comfortable, and the area was quiet affording a good night's sleep. Snorkeling equipment was supplied along with pool noodles and boogie boards. There was also a cooler (blue ice in the freezer) and beach chairs for picnics. The pool area was very well appointed with plenty of lounge chairs and the water temperature was just right. If we return to this area, we would definitely book this location gain.
Marni was very responsive to all our questions and gave us clear instructions and ideas of places to see.
Walking distance to shopping and restaurants.
The park had yoga every morning.
I’ve stayed at many vacation rentals, but none as consciously furnished and stocked as this one. Marni thought of EVERYTHING, down to the ziplock sandwich bags, drying rack for suits, and honey for tea. Everything worked, was laid out well, and was super comfortable. There was a great balcony view of the beach park below. I gave four stars to the location because homeless folks camp out in that park, although none bothered me or anyone else as far as I can tell. Just a heads up.
Bottom line? An owner who cares about her guests. GREAT CONDO.
Very satisfying R and R
Location couldn’t be better! Property manager was awesome and so quick to respond to any questions/issues. Would definitely stay here again.
Great communication from our host Marni. The location is literally right next door to a small yet spectacular beach. Great amenities compliment a condo that includes all the little extras (beach chairs, umbrella, yoga mats, boogie boards and snorkel equipment. Also a well stocked kitchen! All in all, a great place!
I absolutely loved my stay at this beautiful beachfront condo. I really enjoyed waking up to the ocean view with a cup of coffee on the patio every morning. The kitchen was well stocked, the king size bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very modern with a walk-in shower. The location was very convenient with restaurants and shopping within a 5-10 minute walk. Easy check-in and check-out. I will definitely return!
We were very impressed by the overall appearance of the entire unit; modern fixtures and appliances, comfortable bed, A/C and fans in the bedroom and in the living room, very well stocked kitchen, and a beautiful view from the lanai (balcony). The owner was very friendly and helpful, her book with instructions for guests very detailed and useful. The location is within walking distance of the town of Kailua. The people we met by the ocean side pool and the jacuzzi were very friendly, a mix of owners and guests. Overall this is a five star experience. We stayed for over a week in March 2022.
Had a great time staying at the condo. Everything we needed was available and thoughtfully provided. Very clean and beautifully professionally decorated home with a wonderful view of the beach out the back patio!
Marni went above and beyond. The property was perfect.
Great location with view of beach and ocean. Location in south Kailua has easy access in and out of town. Ie can avoid traffic on Ali Drive. Owner has taken great care in furnishing the condo and providing all essentials (kitchen equipment and supplies, coolers, chairs, yoga mats) and then some for a wonderful relaxing stay. Highly recommend.
This place was everything advertised. We were so impressed with the amenities, location and ease of communication with Marni! If you are looking for a condo that is well located (we walked every morning a few blocks to grab a coffee and returned to lanai for breakfast we cooked in the condo), and it had everything you needed to cook. Restaurants for supper were all within walking distance. The lanai was enjoyed morning and late afternoon/evenings every day. And don’t forget the beach amenities- everything you need. Our only regret was that I didn’t book soon enough to get it for our entire stay. On our top list of places to return to. Thanks Marni!!
Overall great communication with owner. Great views and within walking distance to downtown. Parking was a little hectic as not alot of spots if you go out for dinner and get back after 9pm.
Great condo in a great location. Easy to walk into downtown Kailua Kona for shopping. Condo was so well stocked. Even beach chairs , beach umbrella , cooler , beach towels , other items , all for our use. Lots of bath towels of great quality. Washer and dryer in unit was very convenient. Kitchen extremely well stocked - even a blender , crock pot , spices , lots of bowls and pots and pans. Best view is ocean off balcony and great furniture there also to enjoy. So peaceful. Sure hope we get to visit again !
Very clean at check in. Property was well stocked with provisions
We had a great stay.
We enjoyed our view of the ocean and the convenience of being able to walk right into the heart of Kona. The condo was well-equipped - beach towels, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, and cooking essentials. The bed was very comfortable. The place was very clean and the host was very kind. Really, we loved this condo! If you forced me to say one negative thing, I would say that there is some noise from the nearby road, but it wasn’t a problem for us because we were so busy enjoying the view.
We had a great stay at this place. It’s well kept and clean. The owner provides so much for your vacation experience, like snorkeling gears and beach chairs even yoga mat! Would come back again for sure! Don’t miss it!
Bruce and Gloria H.
Very clean. Great communication with Marni
The location was perfect. Everything was an easy walk down Ali’i Dr. Shops, restaurants, the farmer’s market are all just a short stroll down the road. Breakfast every morning on the Lanai was a great way to start the day, and yes there is yoga on the beach each morning. Everything you might need was supplied. The views are spectacular, and listening to the surf is the best white noise you could ever ask for.
Can’t wait to arrange a return visit to the Big Island and Marni’s place.
We will book this unit again in the future!
The condo has everything you need, is clean and very close to town.
The perfect location to be sure.
I'm Kona but on the edge. Easy to walk everything, but also right next to Honl's Beach. The condo itself has been very thoughtfully updated and all the appliance are nice and work perfectly. I can tell that If things go wrong here, they are immediately attended to. I appreciate that they put a fan on the Lanai. This is always so helpful when it get warm, but not everyone does it.
Also, I loved that there is actually kitchen stock! Though I did not cook, you have a good basis there to start from. They thought of everything here, and you can actually just come over n and start living here. So much better than a hotel room!
This was a perfect home base for our week in Hawaii. The condo has a spectacular view, is clean and comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. Mari was a wonderful host and available when we had questions. Make sure you walk to the Farmer’s Market for fresh mangos and papayas, Sushi Shiono for dinner, On the Rocks for a fantastic sunset view and Honl’s Beach to watch the surfers. Kailua is a beautiful and we will definitely visit again!
Great place Marni as host was very responsive; esp concerned about any needs we had; great location and affordable thanks,
We enjoyed our stay at Marni’s. Perfectly stocked kitchen, very clean, and location was great. The complex was quiet and pool area was well maintained. Great views. It was easy to walk into Kona. We would stay again!
Well equipped property. Extras like yoga mats, boogie boards, fins, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and umbrella for weather.
This property was perfect for us. It had everything you need for a great beach vacation, beach towels, chairs, cooler. We walked into town every morning to start our day and were able to explore the entire island from this great location. We cooked in a lot so were so pleased that the kitchen had everything we needed. Amazing ocean view!
This was the perfect home away from home for exploring the Big Island! The condo was clean, comfy and so well stocked with everything we needed! The view was amazing! We loved sitting on the patio, listening to the waves while we drank our morning coffee and had breakfast. The split air conditioning system worked great to keep both the living area and bedroom nice and cool. The owner was very responsive and helpful. When we couldn’t find kitchen towels or extra batteries for the tv remote, she dropped some off right away. We loved our stay here and can’t wait to come and stay again! Wonderful condo!
Marni was right there to help us. Property is perfectly kept, everything worked, the view was phenomenal. Could not ask for a better stay!
Really nicely appointed condo with a gorgeous view! The other reviews were right - this place was very clean, has everything you can think of needing for your stay, and Marni is absolutely fantastic to work with. The location is really convenient for walking to the restaurants and activities in Kona so we only rented a car for half the week we were there. The lanai overlooks a public park with beach access which is great. A few people live at the park full time and there were a couple of issues with noise/odd behavior but we didn't feel unsafe.
Marni’s place was clean and stocked with everything we needed to have a fabulous family vacation. No rental car was needed as restaurants and stores were all within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay here and will be back if we return to the Big Island.
Gary & Laura E.
The rental property was great. Very good location near to town so we could walk to most places. A little road noise when outside on lanai occasionally but overall this was not a big factor. Nice view overlooking ocean and beach area. Parking was easy. Comfortable room and slept well on bed. Very well organized condo. We would stay here again!
Spotless condo, extremely responsive and helpful host. Location was perfect to walk down Ali drive every evening and see the sunset. Everything you could think of was in the condo and more. The bed was just amazing.
This is a great property and has been totally updated as shown. The location is an easy walk to town and restaurants. Water view is great. Marni has thought of everything and all the little extra touches make it even better. This condo has everything you will need.
Alex Nadra K.
The condo is very well organized and clean! It was fully stocked with everything you need! I would definitely stay here again.
Marni sent the Check-In procedure before the date and time described when we first chose this property. Check-in was easy and painless. I had a couple of questions about sightseeing spot which were answered right away. The location is right in the middle of everything with gorgeous ocean views! The beach and pier is right outside the complex and everything is in walking distance. The condo was in excellent condition and updated. There were plenty of trash bags, dishes, toiletries, beach chairs, towels, and even masks/hand sanitizers. We were so happy with our stay. Definitely come back and stay the same place when we come back. Marni is Awesome!!
This is a fantastic, updated, clean and comfortable condo with tons of amenities, great views, very convenient location, with an easy 10 minute walk to town. If we decide to vacation in Kona again, this will be the first place we look for because we liked it so much. There were a lot of thoughtful additions in the condo as well and we can’t say enough good things about our stay!
We loved staying at Marni’s condo and listening to the ocean waves 24-7! Super comfortable and convenient! Everything you need is at the condo and is 5 stars!
Really well equipped apartment, including a starter supply of coffee, as well as laundry detergent. Very comfortable bed and the AC unit in the bedroom worked perfect (we didn’t need to use it any other time than sleeping). Just a block or two from many restaurants so easy to walk. We never had issues finding a parking which is included with the rental. We would stay here again if back in town.
