This 2 bedroom-2 bath condo has been the best condo ever rented. The views are amazing, location great and the condo is furnished with everything that we need. James, the owner has been wonderful with all our requests and questions. He responds to our emails almost immediately. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable and the complex is quiet. We love sitting on the lanai, listening to the birds and watching the sunsets. Snorkeling across the street is the best in Mona. Everything you need is in a shopping center only .7 miles away. You will not be disappointed if you choose this penthouse.
We loved our stay at the Kahaluu 3rd floor condo! We spent most of our time while in the condo (which wasn't much, as we were on-the-go for most of our stay) on the fantastic lanai watching the ocean, hearing the birds and enjoying the breeze. It was clean, very comfortable for a family of 4 (two teens). The optional AC was fantastic and we used it all 7 days, as trades were low while we were there and it was HOT and sticky. The full-size washer and dryer were GREAT and a really nice treat (usually we end up with tiny ones in rental condos). The only fault we found was that there was little to no hot water for showering. The first person to shower had warmish hot water for about 30 seconds---all other showers were lukewarm at best. While we liked the quieter location south of Kona and access to grocery store was great (just a couple of miles further south), next time we come to the Big Island we will definitely stay further north at a resort to have access to better restaurants and swimming beaches. The beaches further south are awesome for snorkeling, but not swimming/hanging out, and the restaurants in Kona proper aren't great (we drove north for meals most nights and our favorite restaurants are up closer to or at the resorts). We were in the car a lot more than we wanted to be staying at this location and for that reason won't stay in this area in the future.
This condo is just perfect! It felt like home and was fully stocked with everything you could need (like shampoo, laundry soap, paper products). The condo had a huge lenai that we used for eating and just hanging out! The condo complex is private and quiet. The pool was very nice and quiet too! Snorkeling at the beach was just fabulous! I would highly recommend this condo on the BI!
Nice & clean, with little touches like soap, scrubby sponges and all you need for cooking and laundry. Small insect problem brought a handyman in a few hours who handled it and also made arrangements to fix minor things after we leave. Phone calls to Abbey Rentals promptly returned. Located away from bad traffic but close to everything we needed.
The location of this condo was ideal for us. Just a short walk to the beach with great snorkeling. Couldn't ask for a better place. The condo itself was very nice and all the amenities you need they had. It was very well kept and clean. We met the manager and she was also very nice. if you had any questions or concerns, she was there to help. This location was also great for good restaurants nearby and a grocery store a few minutes away. It was also a great spot for going off to explore the island. The complex has a wonderful infinity pool, which we used every day - just perfect. The owner was great to work with - no problems there. If we head back to the big island again, we would stay there again!
