We loved this resort. We were right on the ocean on the main floor. We saw a whole bunch of dolphins right outside our window and a cruise ship on another day. The Property Manager and the Maintenance staff were wonderful. Anything that needed to be done was done immediately

The condo was very nice. It was clean and the location was perfect. We had a room that faced a small beach so our patio had an ocean view even though it was not considered an "ocean view". I loved sitting out there drinking my coffee in the morning. The reason I did not give

The location of the resort was ideal being right at Ocean front. The resort activities and the maintenance staff were extremely helpful . The problem was on arrival because your directions did not give complete instructions. The resort needs to be sensitive To the fact that

Book this, especially the upper level rooms with an ocean view/breeze! You’re walking distance from ‘downtown’ Kailua-Kona, it feels safe and welcoming, it’s clean, there’s a real kitchen and laundry facilities in each unit, AND there’s a hot tub!

Did you stay in unit D35?
I cannot comment on a 2 BR, but I will say there are a few things you can check out. Sweet talk them and they won’t charge you. We got beach chairs and a cooler. I would agree with others that referred you to snorkel bobs for water gear. Very professional and clean.

Why didn't they contact VRBO directly and let them deal with Ken and Dia Peters?

is this property on a swimmable beach?
Depends on how you define ‘swimable’. There is a small sandy beach to the side of the condo. But it looked like rocky entry so not sure how swimable it is. There are some public beaches further south. To sit on a beach with sandy beach, we went to Mauna Kea resort area- this is a Marriott resort. You need to get there early to get in - limited public parking, but free. You can rent chairs, boogie board, snorkel gear, etc, from Kona Reef.
