We stayed in a 2 bedroom upper floor condo with loft for two weeks. This was a partial ocean view, and felt like ocean view as we had a clear view of the bay with surfers and snorkelers daily. Way too big for just the two of us, but we enjoyed the three decks off the unit, the ample supplies... More

We have had many vacations on the Big Island, but this was our first stay at this location. Many things were excellent, such as the grounds, the location, the pools, and in general all exterior and facilities. However, being condos the interiors and furnishings varied greatly. We were very surprised to be told that there was a surcharge of $25/day... More

Thank you for your comments, I am surprised to hear about the toaster not being replaced immediately and apologize for it. We keep a stock in storage for such items so they can be replaced almost immediately. Not all units have air conditioning, and thus the charge to help offset the cost of electricity (Kona has the highest cost per... More

Amazing views! Granted we had to overlook the pool to then see the ocean but it didn't matter. It was still incredible! And we appreciated that the pool closed at 7pm! The Condo is a little out of date but still very comfortable. It had everything you would need! Even a blender for smoothies and margaritas! The twin beds were... More

My first time in the Pacific ocean was this July. After choosing the destination, Hawaii, my husband booked this lovely place in the Big Island. The apartment was big, very cozy, very comfortable. The place was beautiful and very peaceful. There is a supermarket nearby, and a Wal-Mart between the apartments and the airport. The staff was great. Thank you... More

We booked outrigger almost a year in advance via the outrigger website. Advantage – great rate, no deposit, payment on departure. Disadvantage – accommodation allocated upon arrival. After harassing the staff with numerous e-mails and questions before we arrived the only “worry” that I had was in which condo we would end up in. We arrived very late one night... More

My wife and I booked a very last-minute trip to Kona for Thanksgiving week. We booked the least-expensive room available, which was a steal at $160/night. It turned out to be an immaculately clean 2-bed, 2-bath condo with 2 lanais (porches) and all the conveniences one might expect (fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, stove, microwave, laundry, free WiFi, etc.) We were...

We were a group of five, and were slightly disappointed when we arrived to stay in a 2-bedroom privately-owned condo. It was very hot, there was no air conditioning, and being a 2-storey building, it was like a hot-house. The decor is very old and dated and the premises requires a good update! Location was good, short drive to most... More
