Was really happy with our choice. Could not beat the view from our room and proximity to the water. Made us not want to leave our room. Free covered parking with a reserved spot. Nicely decorated. Had everything you could possibly need including boogie boards, beach towels, kitchen needs, and appliances. Really enjoyed that it was a small complex and not busy. When we used the pool, no one else was even in it. We could see sea turtles, beautiful yellow tang, and other fish just by sitting out on our lanai. Lots of surfers in the morning and evening. One day when there was no surf we saw people go pretty far out and snorkel. It is next to a very small beach that has shade trees. Lots of great snorkeling close by. The size was perfect for us, but you could sleep 7. Loved having a washer and dryer inside the unit. The breeze and ceiling fans kept the condo at a perfect temperature so much so that we never turned the air conditioning on. King bed was super comfortable. Appreciated the compendium binder that gave us the rules of the condo, how to use things, and suggestions on where to go and things to do. The unit is fairly close to (short drive) to Walmart, Costco, and many other restaurants, and shops. We would definitely stay there again should we come back to the Big Island.
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The location is great, and the owners are very responsive. The view of the sunrise, sunsets and surfers can’t be beat. Truly a great experience.
My wife and I spent two weeks watching the ocean and the surf borders from our unit. It was wonderful. Have been to the big island many times but never this close to the water.
Would stay there again.
The attention to detail in the condo made our stay above and beyond expectations. Location was perfect. Any time we come back to Kona we know where we’ll be staying if it is available!
Absolutely phenomenal stay! The hosts thought of everything here, from the book of recommendations to coolers, boogie boards and beach chairs, even a coffee grinder, which was put to good use with Kona coffee! Amazing views, awesome location, clean and comfortable.
We enjoyed our stay and the views from the lanai were amazing both morning and evening. Well stocked with everything you need.
There are many great features with this rental! Foremost is the view! Sitting on the lanai is almost like sitting on the beach! Even with the windows closed, you could hear the surf in the master bedroom. Plenty of space and privacy for 2 couples. Superb parking. Great communication with host and easy Check in/check out procedures. We are incredibly picky about cleanliness so for us, we felt like it could use a really deep cleaning but everything is organized and overall tidy and in place. The place could also use a few updates on small appliances. Overall, a really good place to stay with really good hosts.
We loved our stay here.
I cannot say enough good about this place
We will be back
This condo was very clean and well stocked with every essential you could ever need! We enjoyed ourselves very much and loved sitting outside on the lanai every day.
Perfect week. very comfortable beds, 25 feet from edge of ocean. Like most everywhere, the property is not EV friendly, but that, hopefully,will change in the future with all rental properties
The view from the property is absolutely breathtaking. It is centrally located which is a huge benefit as well. I already miss my morning tea on the lanai.
Excellent location and the view is spectacular. Will return on the future!
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.
Exactly what was advertised!
We really enjoyed our stay here. The King size beds were perfect, the kitchen was well stocked and the ACs made the stay really comfortable. The view from the property is soo beautiful! We could see a variety of tropical fish swimming in the water and turtles right from our lanai. The location is great, close to beaches and a lot of nice eating places. We hope to be back at this place in the future!
The property was great but the view was the best part of our trip!
This is a great place. Very clean. Right on the ocean. There is a small beach nearby. We really enjoyed watching the surfers outside our window. The pictures are exactly what the place looks like. Fully equipped kitchen. There are several beach chairs and boogie boards. Kim was a perfect host. I would recommend this 100%.
This unit had a phenomenal view and was very clean and well stocked. This property was in a really good location as well with easy access to many restaurants and activites.
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!
Wonderful stay at this super clean condo in a prime spot on the water. Super clean, great amenities, and a fantastic base camp location for exploring the Kona side of the big island.
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.
We very much enjoyed our time at this property. The view was spectacular. We had to return home early due to an unexpected death in the family, and Chrissy could not have been more compassionate. We highly recommend this property and this owner.
The property was very nice. Beach was amazing. There was really good snorkeling right in front of condo. Condo was clean and very organized. The owners and property managers were very responsive to any questions. Definitely recommend and would love to stay here again.
This condo is fantastic! The place has everything including snorkel gear! The pool and jacuzzi were great and to sit in the jacuzzi and look at the ocean is so great! The Lanai was great and being on the end and the angle to it give you privacy and such a beautiful view of the ocean and shoreline! You can walk to a beach, Da Poke Skack is a block over. This is a great area to stay on the Big Island. Go to Two Step to snorkel!
Great place, view is amazing and location, condo was stocked with everything you could think of! Thank you for making out trip special and for everything there!
Loved this condo! It had everything we needed for the perfect family vacation. It had all the things you would need for a fun beach day. Kitchen is stocked well for a home cooked meal. Spent a lot of time on the patio looking at the amazing views. Beautiful sunsets and watching surfers! We chased waterfalls, hiked to green sands beach, hiked at the volcano and stopped by black sand beach.Thankful for how quiet this property was especially after an active day. This vacation was good for the soul.
Location is fantastic. Very well equipped with lots of extra beach stuff. Could use more plates, bowls, mugs, glasses.
Smaller bedroom will not cool down even trying to blow cool air in with available fans. Granddaughter was sweating at night.
This property has been one of the most wonderful we have stayed in using VRBO. We arrived and the unit was spotless and ready for our arrival. The unit was also extremely well equipped with everything you could need for a great stay. They literally thought of everything. Things were clear, clean, visible and easy to find and use. The decor was updated and beach themed which was a nice touch and the VIEW… nothing but INCREDIBLE! The building was quiet and we had privacy. Nothing but the sound of waves lulled us to sleep. Be prepared for that because you are definitely ocean side!
The owners were super helpful and responsive with prior questions and made us feel right at home during our stay. I truly can’t say more about this beautiful property. It felt as though we lived there ourselves and it was a true home away from home in paradise. We will definitely be back next time the Big Island calls for our return.
Mahalo Hawai’i for the incredible memories.
Love this condo! Beautiful views and perfect location for us. We have family in Kona so we’ll be back!
Beautiful setting once you enter the condo. The fans were on and the tv had Hawaiian music playing. The view of the ocean and sunsets are incredible from the balcony. Its in a great location. It has comfortable beds and pillows. Nice towels and amenities. Some of the fixtures need to be replaced as they show some rust due to the salt water but overall its clean and best of all no moldy smell like some places have near the water. We would highly recommend staying here.
First time to the big island and we could not have picked a better spot!! Condo is well appointed with everything you need. The view will not disappoint……I promise. Could not be closer to the ocean. Condo complex is close to everything. Renting a car is a must though!! Lots to see on this beautiful island. We will definitely book with Dana again!! We had a fantastic time.
Overall a fantastic property with many amenities. It had a nice kitchen with plenty of everything we needed. Pool area was well kept, covered underground parking, and easy access to downtown Kailua Kona. We could watch the surfers from the patio and drink our coffee. Bob was a great communicator and helpful with suggestions. Highly recommend.
Everything was GREAT and PERFECT!!!!!! Highly recommend.
Perfect spot to explore west side of the Big Island, gorgeous soothing ocean view and sounds.
Overall great stay. Some items appeared to not be cleaned from prior stay but overall very pleased.
The view was fabulous, and all the amenities and the proximity to the city center was also great.
This is an excellent condo in a great location. It felt like we had the entire complex to ourselves. The pool and hot tub was never overcrowded. It is fun to watch the surfers all day! Thank you! We will be back for sure!
The property was a little worn down. The unit needs some repairs to floors and paint.
The location is beautiful and the homeless think so too. There is public beach access right next to the property. The homeless congregate there at night drinking alcohol and smoking.
I expected the property to be enclosed but it was not. Parking was not secure.
The view is incredible just like the listing.
Location was excellent. Overall very good. One of the sliding doors is difficult to move. And even though it is advertised as having air conditioning, the A/C is poor at best; and is nearly worthless in the large bedroom.
This trip was a gift to our elderly parents who always wanted to see Hawaii. The view and the recliners in the living room just fit the bill. They enjoyed watching the surfers and the boats. The location of the unit was perfect for our daily excursions and the security features of the complex helped them feel safe.
My only concerns was that my mother in law fell immediately on the steps on the living room and cut up
and bruised her legs pretty severely. She didn’t need stitches but it was fairly traumatic for her and limited what she could do during our visit. The little brown rugs may not be enough visual warning- I’d put bright tape down or something- maybe it was just our group that had a problem.
Thank you for a nice stay.
Any little issues with the rental are completely non existent when you step out onto the balcony. The patio made the whole stay incredible. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. I will say if you are actually trying to cook in the place the kitchen isnt the most user friendly. The disposal is not operational and the limited space on countertops is missing some with the microwave on the counter. There are a ton of restaurants in the area and I assume most people are dining out but for allergy reasons we cook most meals at home, so we struggled a bit in that department, but again then ate on the deck and forgot that was even an issue. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay again!
This was a great place for the family. The ocean really was 20 feet from the ocean. There’s a beach next door and a nice pool. The condo is right down the street from lots of shops, restaurants and water sports.
My family loved staying here and watching the surfers in the morning. It was such a special time and place for us to relax and unwind. We can’t wait to come back.
We stayed here for our 25Th Anniversary trip. We loved it. Felt like a home away from home. We enjoyed watching the surfers.
Great view from lanai, lots of extras (boogie boards, beach towels, snorkels, beach chairs). Host was available and good communicator. Highly recommend.
We had 6 people traveling and the condo worked out great!
Very clean, felt like home for the days we spent here. you have everything you need and the most beautiful views. Would Definity recommend staying here.
We spent four nights, zero issues! We loved that we were right on the ocean. We left the sliders open all nights for some great breezes and wonderful ocean wave sounds.the little beach right next to the condos was perfect for us. A short drive had us in to the town area. I’d definitely stay here again. Fantastic sunsets and evenings on the balcony.
Our stay was absolutely fabulous! It was wonderful to wake up to the ocean and watch the surfers. The sunsets were beautiful! The location was great! It was close enough to town, yet away from town traffic. The hosts had great recommendations for everything on the island. The pool is small but perfect for a dip. The area is quiet and calm, which we loved. It was like a private hidden resort. We would come back for sure.
Our contact, Kyle, was on top of every detail. Very polite and professional.
The condo was clean, beautifully decorated and the view of the ocean from the private, corner lanai was breathtaking. We had a wonderful experience.
All of the excellent reviews regarding this property are accurate.....always delightful. Have stayed here several times over a span of many years and will return to this unit when visiting Kona. The views are wonderful and the condo is in great shape. Also Kyle very attentive and quick to respond.
This property was outstanding. Beautiful ocean view . Had my 85 year old mother with us and it was very handicapped accessible for her. Everything we could have needed was available .
We absolutely loved our stay. The place was roomy and had everything we needed. We especially loved that the Banyan Surf spot was right out side our deck. An easy walk down to surf (coral and lava rock a little tough on the feet) and easy to watch each other from the deck. Our four year old also loved exploring in the water and lava rocks. Beautiful white sand beaches were an easy drive away and all the shopping we needed was close by. Thanks for a great stay!
Check-in was easy, condo just as described. Loved the location. Very quiet when we were there. Biggest drawback-the AC never got ‘cold’ but it was tolerable, and the patio was pretty warm in the PM with the AC unit blowing hot air. So we made good use of the 2nd floor lanai! Pool was great, grounds kept tidy. Would recommend this to anyone!
Excellent 5* rental on top of the water and surf spot. All the amenities you need and a very good AC split if you want it less humid, it was 80/80 temp humidity when we were there, a life savior….
Wonderful and one of the best we have stayed at.
The accommodations were comfortable for 4 adults. The location was excellent - short drive to Kona town to the north, but far enough away from the touristy area to feel like a local. Nice little 10 min. walk to a small beach, though not for swimming. The pool was very nice; hot tub was too warm and very chlorinated. View from the room was amazing! Surfers from dawn to dusk were great entertainment. The sunsets - too beautiful to describe. Dryer has only one temp - HOT! so hung clothes to dry. Housecleaning was mediocre. Host was great!
We stayed here for all of our first visit to the big island of Hawaii. It was a great property with a breathtaking view. All four of us enjoyed the stay and the reasonable pricing and it is conveniently located to all Kona has to offer. Highly recommend this unit.
We could not of asked for anything more, other than time! Kim and Jon have a beautiful loccation if you are looking for a place close to a variety of shops and restaraunts. But the best part about it is the View and the sounds of the Ocean! ! I WOULD CHALLENGE you to find better! Thank you so much for truly making our wedding getaway a place we will never forget! And your personal phone call was very special! Thank you so much!
First time in Hawaii and wow, this was such a great place to stay. Right above a popular surf spot, was really fun to sit on the porch and watch them.
The condo was as advertised... clean and spacious and right on the water's edge and we did actually see a turtle right below our balcony! Walking distance to a very cool beach and a short drive to many amenities. Very responsive management.
Amazing view from the condo, which is why it was originally booked. Peaceful neighborhood. Great location not too close to tourist areas but close enough to grab dinner in downtown Kona since there aren’t many other restaurants nearby.
Had a wonderful stay! Loved the location & condo.
We had a great experience here! The morning view of surfers to the evening sunset views from balcony was spectacular. The full glass wall in living room to the glass door balcony gives you really wide view of ocean right from your living room and kitchen. Kitchen was well equipped too for us to cook. Location is really nice as well.
We loved our stay and watching the surfing competition from this spacious corner unit. Comfortable, fully appointed with all the water gear, great veranda and fabulous location for activities in all directions. Thank you! We’ll be back.
Very nice place, view is excellent.
Condo was just as advertised. Great view of sunset and surfers.
Cannot say enough good things about this condo & the property! The condo was very clean and had everything we needed from kitchen essentials to bathroom items. The view from the lanai was spectacular and we enjoyed watching the surfers daily and eating many of our meals out there while listening to the waves crash on the rocks. The entire complex was very well kept and cleaned regularly. The location was just a few minutes drive to shops and restaurants in Kona. Dawn was attentive to sending all the details to make our trip successful. Would highly recommend to others traveling to Hawaii!
The condo was wonderful, with spectacular ocean views.
We just spent a week in this condo. We were very comfortable. We spent most of our time on the lanai. The view is amazing. We enjoyed watching the surfers every morning. We also enjoyed the pool and used the barbecues. I’d recommend staying here. Great location.
The pictures really don’t lie-absolutely perfect view of the water. Condo is charming and has everything you need to step into a relaxing vacation. We loved just hanging out here, but it’s also a good location for exploring the island. Owners are known by the locals and highly regarded. Nice they know their place.
We’re a couple and SIL, all senior citizens. The location is great for access to beaches, restaurants, and shops. Private covered parking is a plus. The elevator was a must-have for us. We enjoyed watching sunsets and surfers from the lanai. There’s a nice kitchen but we ate our meals in restaurants. The condo was very clean and comfortable, if a bit dated. No bugs!
Our second stay at Chrissy condo and both were wonderful. From the sound of the surf to the surfers riding the waves to the glorious sunsets. This condo is perfect.
We loved our stay. The apartment had everything we needed and we loved enjoying the view and sounds of the waves from the balcony.
Property was just as expected. Clean and well stocked. Will stay again.
The unit was clean, updated, and full of everything you need on vacation. Waking up every morning to the sound of the ocean while surfers rode waves nearby was something we'll never forget. The location is super convenient, and we made many a trip across the street for drinks and snacks at the market. Of all the amazing food we had on the island, Da Poke Shack was our favorite. Maybe we are biased because it's literally right next door, but we made three trips! We mostly had the pool to ourselves and really enjoyed spending a few "happy hours" there.
The condo was such a great fit for us. Loved being able to eat breakfast on the lanai every morning. Was too far to walk to town for my 11 year old but did walk to the Poke Shack. Don’t miss it.
All the beach things you could want, boogie board, towels, cooler and snorkel gear.
Clean, comfy beds (didn’t use the pullout).
Would stay here again. Easy with good communication.
My daughter and I stayed here for 3 days over Spring Break to snorkel and hike. She lives on Oahu so we especially enjoyed the generous parking spot and well lit garage. Condo was so special and easy drive to store or restaurants. Loved the small market/liquor store across the street. Condo on older side but well taken care of and had the best vibes. Spacious bedrooms, bathrooms, and living room. Enjoyed the variety of beach equipment and lush beach towels. Amazing views and calming ocean sounds. Lanai was so great to enjoy. Didn’t get a chance to use the pool but it looked clean and well kept. Bob was an amazing host- 5 stars across the board with ease of check-in, communications etc. No more searching for rentals on this island. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Amazing view! Entire “front” of unit is windows. Being able to open areas between the master bedroom and living area made the space to feel very roomy. Air conditioning was very comfortable. Need a new coffee maker and blender.
Loved the sunsets.
Fantastic views and great location close to everything.
Great condo location. Watch the surfers at Banyon every day all day! This is our second time here in this unit and love the big picture window that looks out at the surfers.
Very clean and comfortable! Will come again!
We enjoyed our stay, would definitely recommend and would stay here again! Easy check in, very clean and well stocked. Loved the two king beds! I chose to sleep in the full sized pull out to be closer to the ocean waves and it could use an update. Had one small issue (operator error). Dawn provided a quick and very easy solution. Mahalo, Dawn!
Great views. Great for 4 people, though it would sleep more with pull out couch. (Unit has A/C, however to keep the the entire place cool, all interior doors including both bedrooms need to be kept open. )Kitchen was well stocked with basic essentials +, and left over extra's!
I love this property! The views from the living room are outstanding. Our host, Kim was very helpful and provided timely help.this was our 2nd time staying at the property… can’t wait to visit again
Love the location for this part of the island! Great host, very helpful and great communicator.
We have traveled all over the US and other countries…….the view from the condo is one of the best ever! We loved having coffee on the Lani each morning and watching the surfers.
The condo was fully stocked with everything we needed and then some.
Location was perfect. The “book”,which was very comprehensive, was very helpful.
There were two couples staying here and we felt right at home. Great way for us to Celebrate 41 years of marriage.
Thanks for sharing your piece of heaven.
We love this place with its floor to ceiling windows bringing the waves into your living room and bedroom. Nice furniture and kitchen
Only downside was that the floors had not been cleaned and were sandy and the front bathtub and bath mat were substandard for cleanliness
Condo was clean and comfortable for the family. It was well stocked with home and beach gear. The view was fantastic. The property manager was very helpful and communicated with us very well. Would recommend
Enjoyed 3 great weeks at this very well equipped condo. Right at the oceans edge. We totally enjoyed watching the surfers every morning from the lanai. Spotted whales, turtles and dolphins and watched the sunset every evening. Great wrap around lanai so you can have sun or shade as desired. The condo is a little aged but well maintained. We received quick response to one issue. With the 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms suited our family perfectly.
Had everything that was advertised. Views of surfers in the morning was enjoyable to watch. I would recommend to a friend.
Close to everything. Enjoyed watching the surfers every morning. Condo was big with lots of space. Pool was very enjoyable. Hope to come back and would like to stay in the same place.
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.
The perfect small quiet condo complex, a few miles from Kailua-Kona. Pristine views of ocean, great pool and common areas. Covered parking easy to get in and out of garage. Secure elevator. 2 bedroom and 2 bath. We were there in March and did not need a/c. But there is 1 small unit in living space above lanai doors. Very comfortable and clean and great for 4 people. The little convenience store across the street is great!! We will be back! Thank you Bob!
Janice and Roland K.
The property is tastefully decorated with all the amenities for our family including use of boogie boards and snorkeling gear. The lanai was very spacious.
I can’t say enough about this condo! The lanai is all it’s advertised to be, and the perfect spot to watch the sunset, or whale watching! I was so excited to see that in addition to the comfortable furnishings, it was stocked with beach towels, snorkeling gear and coolers! It rained the last few days of my trip, but no matter! I just grabbed a book from the reading nook and made myself comfortable. Can recommend wholeheartedly, and will definitely be staying again!
Great place wonderful view every morning and sunset in the evening!
Beautiful condo with beautiful views! Host was good at communicating. Would definitely recommend this spot!
Property is even better than the pictures. Very clean, comfortable & excellent location. Has everything you need including those things you forgot to pack! Comfortable beds, beautifully decorated & LOVE the balcony!
It rained on Kona the entire week e were there, but this beautiful location right in the beach was our saving grace! We could sit on our covered patio and watch the surf and surfers and feel we were in the beach. Property has two king beds, one in a separate bedroom and one that is able to be closed off with sliding panels for privacy. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, it was perfect for two couples traveling together. Dawn is wonderful to work with and we would definitely choose this location again.
I have rented condos in different cities 8 times. This condo is the best of them all. Very roomy, laid out very nicely. Covered parking and Kona Trolley stops across the street to take to downtown Kona.
So much better than the pictures show. Definitely highly recommend and Dana is easy to work with. Thank you, Dana, for sharing your home with us.
The condo is exactly as described in the photos. The place has everything; from the kitchen to the laundry and even beach gears (for kids and adults). You don’t need to pack anything than just your clothes and aloha spirit
The ocean view is spectacular; perfect to see the Hawaiian sunset and even star gazing (when the night is clear).
We came to Big island many times, but this is the longest time we stayed on Kona side. I personally like the local vibe and quietness (like Hilo or Captain cooks). The location of the condo is great; not too touristy and bustling like few miles down the road, plenty of snorkeling spots as well as beaches nearby, many shops and great local restaurants.
I have two recommendations: 1. I wish the condo would have blackout curtain(s) that can keep the unit cooler when the sun shines directly throughout the day. 2. The AC keeps turning off, perhaps we set lower than 74. We usually opened the door and turned on the fans the whole day to keep the air circulating. However, when we were gone the whole day or when the waves became too loud at night, the AC is not efficient and strong enough to keep the cool air throughout (at least for my family).
Renting for a second time says it all. We even asked to drop off a few things early and that was arranged. We highly recommend this rental.
