Rating Details: The property manager was adequately helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My husband & I shared our holiday with my brother and sister in law..We arrived in Kona early, and were able to leave our bags at the real estates office. As stated in the paperwork sent to us with the rules & regulations, we were unable to check in until 4pm or later. Personally, I think 4pm is a late enough check in time.The Condo was very nice, looked exactly like the photos, and was very clean. A few things could be improved, especially when being occupied by 4 adults.... Here they are:The kitchen was pretty well equipped but I found it odd that there was no complimentary tea or coffee. One other thing missing was an egg flipper. The couch and 2 seater are in need of replacement. When you sit in them you sink to the floor. It was very uncomfortable to have 4 adults sitting in them.The place we spent most of our time was the back deck . The ocean view was beautiful. The outdoor setting looked great - but was too big for the space and also uncomfortable to sit at. As this is the only place for 4 people to sit together, possibly it should be reviewed. The watering of the gardens is set to come on automatically at 4am. The sprinklers out the back need to be adjusted as by 6am the furniture on the bedroom side was soaked.I know it was mentioned in the R&R, but it should be noted that there were a lot of bugs that looked like a tiny cockroach that hide under the base boards in the ensuite. Maybe a spray of the boards might kill a few.The pool was great. It was a nice temperature and the area very clean.The bbq area was also kept clean.Every night we got front row seats to a beautiful sunset- very nicePS.

I appreciated the beach gear (chairs mats, boogie boards) but didn't use. Close to downtown Kona.

Overall this was a positive experience. We did not need to contact management for any reason. The view was not the best compared to an ocean front unit, but it is a very good partial ocean view at the best value we could find. The unit was very comfortable for 2 adults and one kid. A few minor annoyances were that the windows were difficult to open because the screens are placed on the inside, blocking the window controls. There are no outlets or charging locations near the master bed. A simple alarm clock with usb powered outlet would be a good addition. The fixed shower wall doesn't do a good job of keeping water in the shower, so the bathroom floor tends to get soaked with every shower. Overall these minor annoyances were not enough to detract from the great location, cleanliness of the unit, and good views.

Rating Details: The property manager was adequately helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My stay was enjoyable, but that was despite an unpleasant first impression that could easily have been avoided. My frustration resulted from management's failure to warn me that my parking spot - along with about two dozen others- would not be available upon arrival because the entire property was being resurfaced in sections. I had to walk the property to find my unit because the area had been blocked off, and then park on the street that night. Management was helpful the following day by transporting me to my car and finding me a temporary spot.The view from the unit was stunning and well appreciated. The second bedroom was less than ideal (except maybe for easy kids) but we were two couples. First, the room is close to the outside parking and gets the noise and lights from that area. Second, screens were installed IN FRONT OF the windows. So what should have been a simple act of opening the blinds to allow for air circulation became a series of steps - move side table, detach screen, open blinds, re-attach screen, replace table. Repeat for other two windows and repeat again when checking out. And third, the ceiling fan was noisy on the first night when I had it on the high setting (it was fine the following nights on a lower setting). Management was responsive in addressing my complaint about the fan, but I had not replaced the lockbox key so the repair person could not access the unit... and then repairs became unnecessary because of the low-setting solution.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This is a great condo. Plenty of space, very comfortable master bed (we didn’t use the 2nd bedroom), having two walk-in showers was a bonus, as was the desk. The kitchen was well equipped and had really nice tableware and flatware. The table and chairs on the lanai are new since the photos. Very nice...higher table and chairs makes it easier to enjoy the view. We were there for two weeks at the end of March and could enjoy the sunsets from the lanai. We’re estimating that the sunset would be viewable from the lanai probably from early March through late September. The rest of the year, you can see the sunsets from the viewing area out in front of the condo.Alii Villas in a nice complex with mature plantings that are well maintained. There isn’t much open common green space however. My husband reports that the grilling area was the best he has encountered in our years of visiting Kailua Kona. A really nice touch is that all the garbage bins are in enclosed structures with garage doors that open with a button. The closest one was just out from the corner of the condo. So nice to have it close by, but we didn’t have to see and smell it. There is an assigned parking space just a short distance from the front door. Knutson & Associates are great to deal with. They were quickly responsive to a minor issue.I need to mention two issues with the neighboring property, Kona Shores. Their recreation area is just over the hedge/fence directly out from the lanai. It’s also their smoking area and the smoke blows right into the condo. It wasn’t a constant problem, and not even an every day problem, but it was an issue for me as it triggers my asthma. In addition, there are three light standards with three lights each in this rec area that come on at dusk and cast a lot of light into the master bedroom. If you need a dark room to sleep, pack a sleep mask.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My sister and I wanted to come "home" to revisit our past life in Hawaii. This condo is perfect! The condo was so well appointed with everything and more that would be needed. The decor was beautiful and homey, as if you lived there. The view of the waves and sunsets was astounding. There are only 2 steps up to the door and access was easy. Beds were comfy and the entire condo was clean. Sleeping in the master with the windows open to hear the waves was divine. Parking is ample for our huge car. It was fun each evening to join the community at the end of the parking lot for sunset views that could also be seen from our private lanai. Now, my sister is considering buying a one-bedroom unit to live in as it was such a wonderful experience.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We liked the central location of this vacation rental on the Kona side of the Big island. We liked having restaurants available to the north, but most of our favorite beaches and activities were to the south. We cooked from the apartment a lot, so we only went into town to eat for dinner once. But we did love the Hawaiian shave ice at Gecko Girls so much we went back for seconds. We loved the sounds of crashing waves when the windows were open. We swam in the pool and found the temperature just right and the loungers were comfy. We used the boogie boards and bag chairs provided in the unit. It was nice to have a reserved parking spot for the unit, so we didn’t have to hunt for a new spot every time we came back. We would stay here again if we came back to the big island.

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We have stayed here before. It is a very well maintained community. Very clean and tidy and friendly people. The condo was absolutely beautiful. My only complaint was not having an early check-in option. One person in our party had to stay in the hospital and had just been released the day before, so we extended our stay and moved here. The condo had been empty the day before and we would have happily paid extra to get in, but they said no. Other than that it was perfect.

Condo was nice size for the 4 of us. Clean, nicely furnished. No AC, but large ceiling fans kept air pleasant and moving. Large lending with lovely flowering hedge that welcomes birds. Enjoyed breakfast with nature every morning. Would definitely recommend this property.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great space. Condo wasn't originally my rental, but due to a water issue at another property I was moved here. Turned out to be a blessing. Dolphins every morning out in the cove and beautiful sunsets. Overlooks the neighboring pool a bit, but still have water views. Condo was exceptionally outfitted and had everything needed including outdoor gear. Upgraded fixtures and materials were nice. Beds comfy. Sliders work well. In unit washer/dryer very nice to have. None of the following affected the stay, but its me being overly persnickety and looking at craftsmanship and layout at this pricepoint: I don't like the fact that the ceiling fan hits the cabinet door in the kitchen when partially open. Annoying and damaging in the future. Under cabinet lighting didn't get finished off/cosmetic cover for particle board needed. Toe kick in bathroom doesn't match the cabinets and they didn't finish the edges. Nice home away from home though and would stay again.

Great kitchen - fully stocked with pot, pans, silverware, plates glasses. Nice having 2 bathrooms. The things I would add is another TV in the second bedroom and a price that wouldn't strain our budget. We would stay there again if we could afford it.

We really enjoyed the location and amenities of this condo. Great view of the ocean with wonderful breezes each day. A much large patio than a hotel where we could enjoy breakfast each morning. The pool had lots of loungers and trees when you needed shade as well as a library to borrow a book. There is a great viewing area for the sunsets each night. A bit of a walk to the restaurants and bars but it helped burn off the delicious meals. The front room is very bright so best for morning people. We would definitely rent again.

Absolutely lovely condo - well equipped in terms of kitchen and beach towels/umbrella/chairs/boogie boards - nice to have washer/dryer too. Somewhat obstructed view of ocean but lovely to hear the waves all night long .. nice lanai. Also the primary bedroom faced the ocean view but also patio lighting of the adjacent condo complex which left their lights on all night long. Maybe a request could be made to them to turn off lights at some time?

The condo has all you need to enjoy your stay in Kona. Well stocked kitchen, with new appliances perfect for prepping meals. Lots of extra linens, beach towels and boogie boards. Perfect outside dining area and a very short walk to the pool. Enjoyed sunsets every night and a easy walk into Kona town. Got my 10,000 steps in every day. Highly recommend staying in this unit!

This was a beautiful space, conveniently located to the center of town. We are neat freaks, so the ants (we were on the ground floor) were a bit annoying. Also, there are no basic cooking spices or oils provided. The instructions to check in- to download the app were provided when we didn’t have internet, so arrival and figuring out how to get the key was a little difficult while traveling. The patio furniture smelled like somebody had smoked there, and the neighbors smoking on the patio was bothersome at times.

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
