If all you care about is the view when you rent a property this is a great place. If you would like to stay in a nice unit too it's not great. The pictures are very misleading. The walls are filthy dirty and need to be cleaned and painted. The floor is also dirty and in bad repair. The dishwasher is all rusted out inside, the buttons are broken and it leaks. The stove top is dirty. You need to use barkeeps friend to get the burned on stains off. There is rust showing on a lot of things including sinks and showers. The patio furniture is not the same as in the photos and the tables are completely rusted out. The throw pillow cases were not cleaned. There is a general mold smell especially in the 2nd bedroom. All of this just gives off the general feeling of unclean. The pool is not heated and as a result almost no one uses it and the hot tub is for adults only. The property does have some nice things. The view is awesome and you can watch surfers all day. The countertops are very nice and washer dryer is also. There are a few sand toys, beach chairs, and boogie boards that were very nice to have. The reserved parking is nice. However, for the price I paid I expected the property to be maintained better. Also the pictures do not show the disrepair at all and I think are very misleading. I would have preferred to have spent my vacation in a nicer place.

Very nice condo. Just a couple of small issues: fridge motor very loud, might be failing. Spectrum TV remote missing parts, had to get it within 3 feet of cable box to change channels, volume control worked fine. Queen bed very uncomfortable, sags towards lanai, a new mattress is due! ( please get a king!!)

Parking was convenient. The condo was nice well appointed and clean. The views were spectacular. You can’t beat the banyan tree 305.

We loved the lanai and often would just sit outside and watch the whales breach! With the ocean views and access to a heated pool, this place had all the Hawaii vibes! Loved it!

Condo had a breathtaking view that just can't be beat! We watched whales and surfers from the lanai and enjoyed beautiful sunsets. Inside layout of condo was done well with very good use of the space. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with everything you can think of. A/C worked great and there were plenty of ceiling fans as well. Check in was easy and instructions very clear. The only downside was that the condo is definitely showing wear and tear (flooring, bathrooms) and it could have been cleaned a bit better. There was mold on the shower curtains and I found interesting things underneath the bed from previous tenants. But overall it was a wonderful stay that I would definitely recommend.

This property was amazing! Pictures do not do it justice. Waking up to sit on the balcony, drinking my coffee & watching surfers at sunrise was my favorite! Clean and convenient. Fun pool for my son. This was a gem!

The pictures do not deceive. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed being down the way from downtown Kona. The view is magnificent and the condo had everything we needed. The only downside was the elevator and the fish smell. Maintenance was on it right away. We loved our stay here, thank you!

The condo was right on the shore, which was wonderful. Even with the sliding glass closed at night you could still hear the ocean....great sound. The location was perfect!! Close to everything but more relaxing and quiet than booking downtown. Garbage shoot was another great feature. Two things that could be improved. The baking trays under the oven were dirty and oily, probably from drippings from the oven. Supplies provided were very limited. I expected garbage bags, foil, coffee. Loved having a washer and dryer. There is a mini mart across the street where you can purchase small ziploc bags of detergent I would definitely stay at this property again. My daughter and I didn't want to leave.

Had everything that was advertised. Views of surfers in the morning was enjoyable to watch. I would recommend to a friend.

Clean place with a wonderful view from the lanai. Saw whales and a turtle from the lanai. Very close to beautiful beaches for snorkeling and boogie boarding.

Surfers from dawn to dusk in front.

The property was perfect for our annual mother/daughter trip to the Big Island. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each bedroom had air conditioning which was wonderful. A large lanai overlooking the ocean view where we could watch the sunset and watch the surfers in the early morning and in the evening just before sundown. Check in and check out was super easy. I would definitely stay at the property again. The location on All'i Drive is really close to shopping and great restaurants. Chris

Unfortunately disappointed in this stay. First, the floors were completely sandy and felt dirty upon entering. With a sign asking not to wear shoes inside we were left constantly brushing sand off our feet. Then to open the pull out bed and find sand all throughout the bed was another disappointment. This property clearly wasn’t cleaned before hand. This property had an abundant amount of rules yet wasn’t properly cleaned. I’ve never stayed anywhere that requires you to do laundry if you use more than one towel, blanket per guest. Also of note there is only AC in the bedrooms. Bathrooms were outdated and rusty. With bathroom Reno and AC in every room, less rules and actually being cleaned properly it would have fun great.

Very spacious and clean two bedroom condominium in a great location. Watched beautiful sunsets from balcony. Parking is very convenient on premises. Plenty of good restaurants and supermarket within 2/3miles as is the Royal Kona golf club. Kitchen was well stocked with essentials. In unit washer dryer was very helpful. Overall a great place for a family vacation.

Oceanfront property, mainly as described, spacious for the family of 4, older but everything works. Convenient parking. Beautiful little beach next to the property, easy drive to other Kona locations. Easy check in and check out. The only drawback was obvious luck of cleaning. All main surfaces were at least touched up, but some of the dishes and silverware had been put on the shelves skipping dishwasher. Moreover, some objects in the rooms looked like they haven’t been cleaned for half a year at least. As a final welcome touch the hand towel left for us was torn in pieces looking as a rag.. yes, it wasn’t the only one, not a big deal but it was probably the best illustration for the low quality of maintenance..

We love the location but we were very unhappy with the overall condition of the suite. It was a very expensive unit and we could write our names in the dust on furniture. Floors are in terrible condition and it needs some serious paint touch up. . The shower in the master was downright scary...

Condo was great. Perfect location. Prime surfing spot in the area so we had sun watching them at any time of day. Had beautiful view of sunset every day. Convenient to all Kona are sites. The detail to cleaning was a bit lacking but not a big problem for us. Highly recommend

If you like ocean front then this is the place for you. We really enjoyed beginning our day watching surfers or dolphins from the balcony, place is getting a little worn down but it is clean. The AC is a highlight. I would suggest they include more towels (1 wash cloth and one hand towel per bathroom?) but otherwise no complaints.

The only issue was the bureaucracy surrounding the COVID-19 documentation. This was true for the air travel and the hotel stay.

The location was great for our family. It was centrally located for all the activities we were interested in - scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and golf. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the surfers just about any time of the day. The sunsets were amazing and no need to be anywhere else but on your own balcony to enjoy them. We cooked most nights in the condo because dinner reservations were hard to come by. Thankfully the kitchen has everything you need to cook. There are a few things like salt, pepper, and olive oil to help with cooking. Check the cabinet before shopping. There is not an ice maker but trays are provided to make ice. There is a dishwasher and they provided pods for it. There is dish soap and a sponge for washing dishes. There are beach towels, a few beach chairs, a small cooler with reusable ice packs that came in very handy. They provided one Tide detergent to wash a load of laundry which was super helpful to return home with clean clothes. The decor is a little dated and could probably use a refresh. The mattress were not that great but doable. They do not provide bath soap, shampoo or conditioner. The pump hand soaps that were provided were very watered down. Way more water than soap. The TV cable was not working upon arrival but they were in quick communication regarding it and offered compensation because it could not be fixed until midweek. Overall we were happy with our stay but wish the bath items and hand soap were provided. It would be helpful to have these items and that touch of hospitality would feel welcoming.

We stayed in #305--perfect location, with awesome views. You can't get any closer to the water. Great surfing spot out in front!

Property is facing amazing surf and surfers entertain morning and evening! But lanai is narrow and only could sit with chairs facing rail. Condo is worn.. floors beat up but all appliances functioned. I tried to stay at the Kona Bali Kai just north but was abruptly canceled had to scramble to find a place. Would not book again.
