The location can't be beat. Less than a two-minute walk to the Royal Kona Resort, where I spent many hours watching the water and sky and enjoying $5 pina coladas as the sun set. A five-minute walk to the heart of downtown. Free reserved parking (be sure you get the parking space number or you will be threatened with towing) and you can avoid the downtown, oceanfront conjestion by taking the road behind the condo if you need to make a quick trip. The condo has been rennovated with tile floors and current appliances, including a washer dryer unit. There is a small wall unit AC downstairs. No AC upstairs which was problematic only when people were smoking on adjacent balconies or in the parking lot or if other guests are making a lot of noise, which was not an issue when we were there. The master bedroom has its own balcony and a splendid view of the water if you sit facing southwest. There is a smaller second bedroom which is comfortable but not as well-ventilated. My friend refused to sleep there, calling it a "dungeon." (She referred to the condo as a ghetto, as well, but she was pretty negative about everything.) If you are not in good shape, you may want to consider staying elsewhere. Getting heavy bags up the stairs (both outside and inside the apt.) is difficult unless you are exceptionally strong. I never got any hot water downstairs (maybe I didn't wait long enough), but there was plenty of hot water upstairs in the master bath. The place was well-stocked with all the basics: paper towels, laundry and dish detergent, beach equipment, mats and towels. (Fortunately, I brought my own coffee filters because we couldn't find any.) And there was a wonderul gift basket there on our arrival that contained organic coffee and fruit-- a promotion by a local owner. The condo was clean and uncluttered. The bathroom towels were high-quality and professionally laundered. No complaints in this regard. Bottom line: I doubt you can do better for the money, but the AC (or lack thereof) could be a deal-breaker for folks who can't take the heat and humidity. (I'm from Florida and keep my home AC at 78. I was fine, even in the "dungeon.") Tip: To really enjoy the view, either from the living room or the master bedroom, you need to stack up seat cushions so you can see over the wood railing, which is a bit wide and otherwise blocks the view. I called these modified chairs my "thrones" and I spent hours reading and enjoying the view.
