Following our arrival at Kona, it was an easy drive to Waikoloa. The condo unit was unbelievably clean and beautifully furnished, which made our six day stay stress-free. Everything about the property was just as described in the listing, although frankly, the photos do not do justice to the beauty and "freshness" of the unit. Everything worked - we experienced no maintenance issues of any kind. The kitchen had everything we needed to make some meals in, access to the grounds and unit was easy, and there is plenty of nearby parking. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. The unit is part of a larger resort community, including Hilton and Marriott resorts, and there are plenty of nearby shopping areas and restaurants, much of it walkable from the unit. We were out exploring the island every day, so we did not avail ourselves of all of the amenities, but it was a comfort to come home to a complete apartment after busy days. The owners also provided us with a list of recommended places, which we took advantage of.
I have already recommended this property to several friends that are planning a visit to Hawaii - I'm trying to sell them on the idea of taking the time to visit the big island. There is so much to see and do - we especially enjoyed Volcanoes Natl. Park, although a visitors would enjoy a very fine vacation even if they never left the resort community. This is one of the best properties we have rented, and I would absolutely recommend this property to everyone.
Great service and quick response time by Marty (owner) and Linda (property manager). Very well equipped: Beach amenities - great quality chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, snorkelling equipment and cooler. Condo - kitchen equipped for all needs. The unit is spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. Large deck with patio furniture and close access to BBQ's and pool. Excellent location close to beaches, numerous restaurants within walking distance, grocery and shopping close by. Overall the property is peaceful and the grounds are very well maintained.
We highly recommended this property and would not hesitate to return.
Thank you from Victoria BC
It was a pleasure to stay in this condo----extremely clean and comfortable and
located within easy walking distance of beautiful beaches, great restaurants, and
good shopping. We especially appreciated the owner's quick response to our
request for additional cooking equipment! The resort is quiet and the grounds
are immaculate; the pool provides a wonderful area for reading, relaxing, or
enjoying the water. We really enjoyed our Big Island vacation and wished we
could stay much longer!
What can I say that everyone hasn't already raved about?! This place was perfect for my relaxing trip to the Big Island. This was my first trip to the Big Island and wasn't sure what to expect, luckily these amazing hosts made it so easy. They have a handy binder with personal feedback and suggestions of places and activities, as well as car rentals, near by grocery/store/shopping. The condo is located in a beautiful resort area that has everything within walking distance! You want to eat out? Lots of restaurants to chose from ranging from Italian to local fresh sushi! Beaches? Beautiful ones are just a walk away with lots of beach activities to try. There's a ton of popular and trendy stores accessible and close by for shopping, dining or just a nice Evening walk. The landscapes are beautiful through out the vacinity and the gated community gives it that extra touch of privacy. The Condo was furnished beautifully and was stocked with everything you could need and even things you might of not thought of beforehand like the handy beach wagon that's provided by the hosts. For example I forgot to pack snorkeling gear, but I assumed I would just rent some, however, the hosts had gear for me (guests) to use so I saved in rentals thanks to their thoughtfulness! The home was very clean and comfortable. I felt like Queen of the Island having the comfy King bed to myself as well as an amazing huge shower that felt like a waterfall (amazing water pressure)! The central Air Conditioner was nice for cooling off for Lunch after a long hot morning at the beach. The patio was a great private place to enjoy the weather and sunshine for any meal time, a glass of wine, or just hear the tropical birds chirping and local greenery. I felt like I was right at home and was able to wash clothes and towels as needed, so I didn't even have to take a checked bag and pay luggage airline fees. This condo saved me money left and right and was much more comfortable and affordable than any hotel!!! The communication was always quick and helpful. I would definitely come back and suggest this place to anyone visiting the Big Island. I can see why this place is in demand it's a GEM! Thank you Marty and Rachelle for sharing your home with me and making this vacation stay not only amazing but very comfortable!
