The pros of our stay were the location, oceanfront with a swimming pool and assigned covered parking. The cons were (for the street side bedroom) traffic and neighbor noise and the rooster crowing (and not just at Sun up). We have stayed at this location multiple times and enjoy the pros over other locations. Floor plans are generally very similar and not as busy as the larger buildings. The unit we were in was in need of some minor maintenance and upgrades, but was the best rate of all the rest of the units and our visit and memories more than made up for any minor inconveniences.

This was a great property to stay in, especially if you like to be near the ocean. When you enter the place you feel like you are on a boat as the main windows are above the sea. It is also a favorite surfer spot so plenty of free entertainment from the deck. Unit is well supplied for all you need on your Hawaiian vacation. Host is quick to respond. A few downsides - very old furniture, including a couch that is almost unusable, unit does get hot (but sunshades on window provided and can open windows/screens), and an insane amount of property rules. However, if you love the sound, sight, and smell of the ocean this place can't be beat! There were just 2 of us but can fit 4 comfortably. For what you get it is a pretty good deal for being oceanfront.

The place was just as expected and supplied with so much more than we expected. The view was amazing. We were aware that there was no AC but it would have been nice during the day, not needed after sunset

I only wish I could attach pictures to my review, the view is incredible! Beyond stunning sunsets, surfers to watch all day, relaxing ocean sounds all night had us leaving the windows open at all times. Centrally located enough, but far enough away from the tourist row. Short distance to Magic Sands Beach, and anything else you’d want to do in Kona. Pool was always available for use and virtually empty. Hot tub at sunset never got old. Furnished just enough for our needs, kitchen had anything we wanted/needed. Bed was very comfortable, but we spent most of our time in the unit out on the patio. We were concerned about the no air conditioning but took a chance, and the beautiful ocean breeze and fans kept air flowing, and we were never too hot or missed the a/c. We’ve already shared with all of our family and encourage everyone to take advantage of this steal of a deal. Other units in the same building are triple what this one is and it has been my favorite stay. We will DEFINITELY be back and booking again. The pictures and the listing don’t do it justice … The views. Trust me. 10/10

amazing, we were here for 5 nights and I'm sorry it wasn't more. such a beautiful view of the ocean that we didn't want to go anywhere. Enough space for 4 people, equipped with everything you need.

This condo has a great location on the oceanfront and not far from town. We found the recliner, swivel chairs to be very comfortable which is really important to us. The unit was very well equipped including two beach chairs, a beach umbrella and a boogie board. The unit was quiet except for the ocean waves which we enjoyed. There is no AC but the ocean breeze and fans kept us quite comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

This condo was perfect for my family of four. The kitchen was fully equipped, and they had everything we needed for the beach (chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, bamboo mats, beach towels, much appreciated thank you!). We were there in July with temperatures in the 90s and the fans kept the place cool. I thought we would miss having A/C, but seriously this place was great without it. The view out the wall of windows facing the ocean was incredible. Sometimes it was hard to leave the condo to go exploring because it was so comfortable and relaxing there. =) The condo has lots of nice touches, it really feels homey, not just a sterile condo. And the best part -- falling asleep to the sound of the waves. We met several people who live full time in the complex, and they were all really friendly, and gave us great tips on where to go on the island. This is a great condo and I really hope to stay here again someday.

My friend and I stayed for a week here and the view is absolutely breathtaking. You get to see the sun set over the ocean every night. And usually lots of surfers are out as well. It's a bit of a drive to get to the prettiest beaches on the island, but other than that the location is close enough to town. We enjoyed our stay!

Seamless rental. View from condo is amazing. Watch dolphins, surfers and hearing the waves crash was so relaxing.

Beautiful view, we enjoyed every minute. Went exploring during the day and came home to a beautiful view watching the surfers.

This VRBO could benefit from some cosmetic updating, but it’s obviously well cared for and immediately cleaned. The huge windows provide a great view of the Banyan surf spot which appears to be popular from sunrise to sunset. Speaking of sunsets, they were spectacular as well. We would definitely stay here again.

Just an excellent place to stay! Photos are representative of the property - the view as you walk in is just stunning! The area on Alii Drive is a good location - we walked to Magic Sands for lunch, but otherwise is a little far to walk to town. I brought my bike along and it's a great, fast ride. The elevator is keyed in so safety was good, very secure building. Also convenient to Keahou shopping center, if you're headed south. Abby worked to get me a little earlier check-in, and she left an orchid lei for me, as this was a memorial trip for my brother. My first morning the toilet plugged up, but the staff was very responsive, had it repaired that afternoon (impossible to get repairs done on this island in a timely manner, so this was super fast). Kitchen was a little cramped for 3 of us working in there, but well equipped. It's vacation, no need to cook other meals. Big fridge, good for leftovers. We ate breakfast on the lanai every morning, enjoying the view and watching the surfers. Banyans Beach is next door, but it's a surf spot, not okay for swimmers. Kona was overcast most afternoons, so the condo was not unbearable, quite comfortable. July is not the hottest month, but we didn't need AC, fans were adequate. Nice pool, we didn't use the spa. If I had to think of something to complain about, the surf pounding on the rocks below kept me awake until I got used to it, and it was a full moon so it was BRIGHT as it sank into the ocean. Sure I could get up & close the door and drapes, but what's the point of that?! I live in Hilo on the east side, I would definitely stay here again. LOVED it!

We spent a week here lulled to sleep each night by the sound of the waves! Beautiful view of the ocean. We enjoyed watching the surfers and the dolphins. The condo definitely warmed up with no AC, but fans and screen doors were helpful. We loved it and will miss staring out at the ocean.

This property was PERFECT! The view is unbeatable - worth every penny on it's own! Abby, the property manager, went above and beyond to accommodate us (and my often demanding in-laws...sorry Abby!!!!!!). The apartment is well furnished, comfortable, and had everything we needed for an extended stay. The grounds are magnificent and the pool area is perfect. I would absolutely stay here again in a heartbeat!
