Can't say enough for this lovely lovely condo. The location was incredible. The condo
well equiped and well maintained. Will miss the lovely views across the road of snorkelers and surfers each day from the beautiful lanai. The great pool and hot top for an early evening dip after long days of exploring. The BBQ on site was put to good use as well.
A smooth operation from directions from the airport to checking in and out.

We stayed in unit 2-202 from Feb 2-10. We really loved the location here. I enjoyed being across from Kahaluu beach. There was great snorkeling and the tidal pools were wonderful for the kids. There were always plenty of turtles to see there too.
The kitchen in the unit had most everything we could need except for sugar packets but we picked some up at a gas station. The lanai was really nice to eat our meals on. The lanai had a BBQ on it but we always used the one at the pool. From the lanai we had a great view of the beach across the street.
The bedrooms were well equipped and each had a TV in it. There was an extra single blow up bed for our third child so no one had to share a bed and it fit in the bedroom with the two single beds. The master king size bed was super comfortable. All the rooms were clean and well kept.
The bathrooms were a nice size and they were clean. The showers were very large. The vessel sinks were a bit high for our kids to reach the faucets however we just picked up a stool at WalMart and it was fine. We had plenty of towels and face cloths.
We made good use of the beach towels, a hard sided cooler, umbrella, and two beach chairs that the unit had for our use.
The Wifi worked well and we always had good service. The free North American long distance was alse really nice.
My only complaint would be that the washer was very loud and the dryer took a long time to run.
We went to the pool almost every day. The kids loved the pool and had a blast. It was nice that there was a hot tub to warm up as the pool wasn’t heated but the kids didn’t mind at all. The pool area also had lounge chairs and a few tables with chairs. There was a BBQ area as well.
There was ample free parking. The building had an elevator but we mostly used the stairs.
The condo is in close proximity to the grocery and drug stores which are just up the hill. There was a great farmers market on the corner of Ali’I drive and Hualalai. We found this was the best place for produce and souvenirs in terms of both selection and price.
I would recommend this complex to anyone looking for a quite location that has all the amenities you could need.

We were pleased to find the condo had everything we needed and more. The condo was tastefully furnished and cozy. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in and contained everything we needed to prepare all our meals. An unexpected bonus was two bathrooms! The lanai was roomy and comfortable with a lovely view overlooking the pool and Kahalu'u Beach Park. The amenities, including pool, hot tub and barbeque were used extensively. We also put the cooler, beach chairs and other beach toys to good use. The location was very handy to snorkeling at Kahalu'u Beach. We enjoyed being able to simply walk across the street to snorkel with the fish and turtles. The Keauhou Shopping Centre nearby was handy for our shopping and dining needs. The villa was a short drive from Kailua-Kona which we visited on several occasions. If we had to say anything negative about the condo is that it lacked night lights for midnight trips to the loo. Outside street lights are not in the owner's control but they prevented us from leaving the bedroom blind open at night for air flow. When we required assistance with the wi-fi set-up, help was a phone call away and dealt with promptly. Overall, we had an outstanding condo experience and can't wait to return to suite 1-201.

Room Tip: A front corner suite on the second or third floor provides good air flow, privacy and views.

I was wanted to stay as close to Kahalu'u Beach Park as possible and didn't remember this complex being there when I was in Hawaii in Oct. of 2009. It looks brand new! The friendly cleaning lady crew (we met them upon our last-minute departure) did a wonderful job and the condo looked spotless (except for the fridge, which has water stains or something on it and probably needs to be replaced.) The kitchen was very well-equipped. Lots of extremely soft bath towels (check the closets, too!) and pool towels- no need to pack your own! The lanai was a great spot to enjoy our meals and watch the action across the street. The sofa was also a nice spot to have late night dessert while watching the flat screen. Having wi-fi was a bonus! There are several travel books and maps which were very useful in planning our days. This is definitely not a touristy area... the closest restaurant is probably in the only nearby hotel across the street. Really good pizza (vegan! and traditional) can be found a short drive away in the Keauhou shopping center.

I had the master bedroom with the sliding glass door opening to the lanai and another large window overlooking Kahalu'u beach. I am one that likes to sleep in complete darkness, and the blinds were perfect. Plenty of drawers and a large closet for storing your belongs, too. My dad opted for the other bedroom citing noise concerns, but I slept peacefully (but cute school kids walk down the road around 6:55 am to catch the school bus). We opted for the a/c since our visit was in October, but upon arrival we found the indoor temperature to be very comfortable with the ceiling fans on. I sent an email to the property manager to see if we could have the key picked up since we wouldn't be using it, and it was removed the next day, and my credit card was promptly refunded for the a/c use charges:)

I only went in the black bottom swimming pool once (there's the ocean right across the street!) and the water temperature was pleasant, and there were plenty of lounge chairs around, as well as a barbeque area.

I would most certainly stay here again. Very reasonable rates, free parking, excellent location, so many sea turtles across the street!

Room Tip: Would prefer not to stay on the first floor because guests will be walking by and looking in your wi...

We booked apartment 1-201 at the Beach Villas for Ironman World Championships 2011 and were very satisfied with overall experience. Very close to Kahalu'u Beach which was always nice for a relaxed morning swim with the turtles. Close to Ali'i Drive but not noisy at all. Nice spacious lanai with excellent ocean views. Close to Keauhou shopping center.

My family stayed in "Gail's" condo #203. It was luxurious. Beautifully decorated with all the amenities of home. Even the dishes and glassware were gorgeous. Spotlessly clean. I didn't believe that we wouldn't need the air conditioner, but we never used it (first week of October.) Even tho the temps were 86 every day and it was humid, the ceiling fans kept the air flowing and the breeze was magnificient. No bugs, just ocean air. We were there for the Ironman race and it was super convenient as it is just at the run turnaround on Ali'i Drive so it was accessible by car on race day and just a great venue. We snorkeled every day at the beach across the street and felt very fortunate to have chosen this particular condo. Can't wait for the opportunity to go back. Thanks Gail and Phil! Mahalo!

Room Tip: #203 2nd floor is Gail's Condo. Safe to leave all the windows open.
