What a wonderful place to stay! No wonder it books up so quickly! This condo was recommended by a friend who had stayed and loved it and we can only second her accolades. The view is spectacular, just a few feet from the ocean, and the wall of windows and doors maximizes the oceanfront setting. During our stay we loved watching experienced surfers right in front of our lanai. The access beach next door also has sea turtles. The unit is immaculately clean and stocked with every imaginable beach item and the kitchen has all cookware, spices, etc. for those who want to cook or maybe grill outside. We loved the 2 full baths and the in-room washer and dryer. 2 bedrooms with a total of 3 beds give lots of options for sleeping arrangements. Reserved first level parking and an elevator were much appreciated. Owner Janice is amazing at immediate replies to questions. Kona weather is reliably warm and sunny. I only hope I can return to Hawaii someday and to this condo.
