This place seems to get lots of good reviews, and now I know that the reviews are well deserved. The bed was comfortable, nice towels and linens, well stocked with essentials in the bathroom and kitchen, nice beach chairs, and good location. The view is nice - watched many sunsets from here. This place had an air conditioner, if needed (not all rentals in Hawaii have ac). The pool area was clean and quiet, at least the one time I went there, but with so many beaches and snorkel spots nearby, didn't really need the pool. Assigned parking spot was right in front of building.
Only caution: if you have difficulty with stairs, this was on the 3rd floor with no elevator.
The location was good. We were able to walk to dinner and lunch in as little as 5 minutes.
The owner was easy to communicate with and very helpful.

Excellent place to stay in Kona! Apartment was perfectly equipped, comfortable and located close the main roads in Kona with an easy walking distance to all the restaurants, shops and activities of the area. Showers, air conditioning, bedding and kitchen are of a high standard and will meet the need of all who don't require an all inclusive hotel experience. Parking was convenient and some restaurants were in the immediate area; Bongo Ben's come to mind and their delicious Kona Colada Cocktail. Owner was very accommodating to needs yet I never met him personally. I requested a kettle and it was at my door the next day.
Location wise, the apartment was nicely centralized to the snorkelling locations I wanted to visit on my vacation: Mauna Kea Beach is 40 minutes North, Two step beach was 30 Minutes South.
Price, accommodations and location made for a very pleasant stay.
