We stayed here for 10 days. We especially appreciated the well-equipped kitchen, gorgeous lanai, tastefully decorated interior, prime location, and responsive property manager. Would stay at this location again.

Eric and Damon are great hosts and offer a very well-equipped condo. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, including really nice pots and pans. The washer, dryer, and drying rack on the lanai were very welcome, as were the beach chairs, sunbrella, boogie boards, beach towels, coolers, ice packs…. The Keauhou Shopping Centre is only a few minutes drive away, so very handy for groceries, restaurants and other shops. The pool is great to cool off after a day exploring the island, and usually pretty quiet. We wish we could have stayed longer. Returning to Alaska winter was a rude awakening!! Highly recommend.

We like this complex and have stayed here before. This unit has an amazing ocean view, a comfortable bed, and a decent kitchen. We really like the location of the complex. Comfortable furniture, a nice pool, friendly neighbors, and clear information are things we enjoy. This place has all. Although we didn't need them, they have a well stocked cupboard of beach stuff!

Our Condo was spacious with a beautiful view from the Lanai. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishware, utensils and spices galore! Laundry soap provided by past guests. The owner had a guestbook which provided a wealth of information from past guests. (We signed it too!) No A/C but plenty of ceiling fans kept us comfy. Nice pool and golf course on site. Highly recommend!

keep in mind most condos in Kona are older. This is no exception. But, It is well maintained. We had a pleasant stay except for road noise. It was hot and humid during early November 2023. We had to keep windows open all night for it to cool off. Road noise from Alii Highway was excessive in our mind. Great location to access Keauhou Bay.

Could not have imagined a more welcoming space to inhabit! The views were spectacular, the unit was spacious and clean, and the location was central to all our activities. We would happily stay again but found it is solidly booked for many months ahead! Understandable, but sadly not a well kept secret LOL

This was the first time my husband and I visited the Big Island. We were there for the Ironman World Championships. Our stay at Kona Vacay was wonderful!! We can't say enough about how great Damon and Eric were as our hosts. Most of our communication was with Damon since Eric was out of town with family. From the very start, Damon made us feel very welcome. He greeted us when we arrived and showed us around the place and how to use everything. The place itself was excellent and just as described. We liked the fact that it was a little bit away from all the hustle and bustle but close enough to get to everything in Kona. Damon was great with communication and was able to give us advice on places to eat and things to do. We highly recommend staying at Damon and Eric's place. If we are fortunate enough to return to the Big Island, we would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much for welcoming us into your place!!

We chose this property because friends were staying in the same complex. Nice but expensive. Very comfortable for 2 people, relaxing, and well equipped. No A/C, Distant from everything in Kona, Birds chirp loud all night which didn't bother us, but others may want to avoid this problem.

But had lots of extras such as laundry soap for doing laundry. great communication with owner. good location. free parking. would be good to know where the actual unit is (park near the end othe parking lot by the poot, unit is in last building mauka side, up first set of stairs). very clean. a/c would help.

Everything about this property was perfect. The location was ideal - within walking distance to the beach, shopping area and free shuttle into Kona. The setting was perfect - beautiful view of the golf course and ocean, the amenities in the condo were great - from kitchen supplies and appliances, to washing machine/dryer and beach chairs/umbrellas for use as well as 3 pools. Comfortable beds with 2 bathrooms which was perfect for our group. We were here for the Kona ironman, and the everything exceeded our expectations - would definitely recommend this property to anyone else travelling to Kona. We were friends staying here, but would also be great for families with the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and the pools on site.

Our second stay at this apartment, even better than the first time in 2019 as we stayed longer! Great communication with hosts, no fuss booking and check in. We LOVE this location, although best to have a car. Spacious apartment, everything you need, snorkelling gear and body boards, beach chairs, coolers, beach towels, the hosts even bought us a beach umbrella. We ate on the lanai for every meal. New Air Conditioning unit in the bedroom, although we did not use it as love the ceiling fans and open windows and doors throughout. The pool in this complex is the best...clean, clear, mostly quiet, warm shower and plenty of chairs, loungers and umbrellas. Even a book lending library at the pool! We don't mind the early starts from the golf course workers and golfers, as the views and privacy from the lanai are awesome. Walks around coast and golf course. Close to supermarket and shopping centre, and walking distance to harbour and twice weekly market. Easy drive to Kona, 25 minutes to airport. THANK YOU :)

Lovely condo within walking distance of keauhou bay. Near many water activities and shopping. I really prefer this quiet area over Kona town. Have dinner or breakfast at the Outrigger or the Kona country club. This is a quiet oasis

Bonnie was easy to communicate with. Having a travel crib was a lifesaver. The view was amazing! We loved being able to watch the ocean sunset every night. Quiet little complex, which we loved, yet easy access to almost everything!

One of the best locations on the island for snorkeling. 2Step is nearby. If you are lookin Goff a beach for the kids with sand, Magic Sands is also near. Shopping center with a grocery store is also nearby. The owner is extremely responsive. There are Beach chairs and other items needed for play. All in all a great time.

Beautiful place, wonderful amenities! Just be aware, the place does not have any AC (it is listed as no central air, but be aware there is no ac unit whatsoever). Also, the property has very strict rules, and some residents were very unfriendly towards us over them. On our first night moving in, we had a neighbor yell at us for rolling our luggage in because we were being too loud. We additionally were given notes from the property about not being able to have a phone call on our lanai and backing in to the parking spot in which they threatened to contact our property manager. Overall, this place was beautiful, very clean, and had many things that helped our vacation go smoothly (coolers, chairs, towels, etc). We absolutely loved the place itself. However, the strictness of the rules and the unfriendliness of neighbors made us feel very unwelcome as paying guests.

Location is great. Quiet neighborhood and has a beautiful view of the coast from the lanai. We hear song birds all day. Lanai is nice for breakfast with a view. Having snorkel gears, boogie boards, and baby floatie are a plus. Those can use a little more cleaning, though. The house itself is generally clean and comfortable. we just ran into one issue, trash was not left under the sink and was not thrown out by the previous guests or the cleaners. The unit has lots of fans inside which really helped to keep the house cool. No A/C unit. Kitchen is complete with pots, pans, utensils, cups, plates, etc, which was such a big plus to our stay as we cooked our own breakfast everyday. I would suggest adding a jar of ground coffee, though. 3 flights of stairs to the unit so if you have big luggages it wouldnt be ideal. We had 2 hand-carry size luggage and a toddler, it wasn't too bad going up to the unit. The owner Bonnie is easy to communicate with for any questions. 50 minutes from Hapuna Beach, 1 hr 30 minutes from Black Sand Beach, a little over 2 hours from volcano. Overall, I would recommend this place. Very comfortable, beautiful view, quiet.

This condo is great if you are a slightly mobility impaired. There are no stairs, but you do have to walk around the building. The showers are easy to get into. There was a very comfortable queen size bed at a good height. Our friend slept on the Murphy bed and she said it was very comfortable also. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you will need to cook. There are a few extra spices which is great. I have rented in the complex five or six times over the years, different units and I will definitely come back to this condo again. Easy to communicate with the owners.

This place has all the essentials! We only stayed 2 days, but this place allows you to enjoy a beautiful sunset while having all the amenities for a relaxing vacation! From chairs to umbrellas to spices for cooking to a cooler, this place allows you not to have to worry about a thing and just go explore Big Island! Would definitely recommend!!

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. Communication with the manager and the entire check in process was excellent, and the property was very clean and well stocked with linens and supplies for cleaning, as well as resources for going to the beach and cooking. I wish we could have stayed longer and took advantage of the well stocked kitchen. Additionally it was only a few minutes away from the Fair Wind tours. There was a delightful artisan fair right down the road too. I definitely recommend this place and hope to stay again.

The condo was in excellent condition when we arrived, clean, all you could ask for in Hawaii. Plenty of extra's for outdoor activities, the indoor accommodations were great too. There was plenty of space and a great view of the ocean and sunset's. We enjoyed all that the place had to offer.

Keauhou is a great area to stay. Very convenient to everything. The property is well maintained and the pool is great. The lanai makes this rental amazing. Coffee in the morning with a view and sunset viewing at night. Just wonderful. Our property manager, Steve, was the best. I have never had a better manager than him. Made our stay very easy.

From breakfast on the balcony and dinner enjoying the sunsets, and everything in between. We needed nothing except food for the kitchen. Everything provided for beach days, right down to a cooler. Bonus washer and dryer in condo. Two bathrooms. So breezy, we didn’t even miss our central A/C at home. One of our best VRBO stays ever.
