We had a corner wraparound lanai on the south end, toward the Royal Kona Hotel for an 8 day stay. The tide pools below were fascinating, and we saw turtles below us every day..one day we even saw a manta glide over the rocks. The lanai hangs at the edge of the crashing surf. The condos face west, and sunsets were awesome. We also faced the July 4th fireworks in the bay.
Besides the great lanai location, the condo was very nicely appointed, had everything we needed for our stay, and the bedding/furniture was comfortable and in very nice condition. The air conditioning was great, as our other locations had depended on ocean breezes to cool, sometimes not so well. Appliances all worked (has a dishwasher).
You can check out all the condos at this location online and see pictures of interiors and views. I made reservations by phone and got all necessary information prior to finalizing condo choice and our dates. Everyone on staff was friendly, helpful, and gave good information about the area. We felt the price for what we received was a great value. I hope we can go back, and if we do, we will stay there...wouldn't even look for anything else.More
