This condo across from White Sand beach near Kona was everything we hoped for and more. It was clean, spacious, well stocked, and beautifully decorated with Hawaiian decor. It was a short drive from the KOA airport and was our convenient take-off point to explore the Big Island. We were so glad we stayed near Kona rather than Hilo. Liked the town and atmosphere much better.
With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, it was a good fit for us and another couple. We enjoyed the balcony which was accessible from both the spacious living room and one of the bedrooms. The kitchen saved us money because we fixed lots of meals there--and it was better equipped than my kitchen at home! When we went sightseeing for the day, we took the provided coolers and packed a picnic lunch. We didn't do much TV watching, but there were three of them--one in each bedroom and a third larger one in the living room. Air conditioning and ceiling fans were appreciated. The bedroom without the balcony exit had a tricky ceiling fan and light switch system, but we figured it out.
There was a swimming pool with the condo complex, but we didn't get a chance to use that. Some of us did get into the ocean which was right across the street and easily accessible.
Our hats off to Margaret and Larry for providing the perfect vacation condo for us at a reasonable price! I highly recommend this condo to anyone who wants a great place to stay on the Big Island.
Loved the location,we stayed in same building before but in the rear.this unit was in the front.View from lanai was beautiful for coffe every morning.Unit was well stocked and owners were very helpfu with mid stay questions.Would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Across round from lovely whispering sans beach, the flat has everything you could need for a Hawaiian holiday. Rooms are very comfortable with a full kitchen and lounge overlooking the sea and beach. Parking is easy and location is near to supermarkets, restaurants, major roads, etc.
Coming to the Big Island you want to find a good location and for the two of us girls, safety was important also. Not only was the view of the Pacific and Magic sands Beach amazing right off the balcony, we also felt very secure on the 3rd floor. We always used the elevator because I was still walking on a new knee joint from a surgery a few months ago. The owners will send you a list of ideas about the sights and recommend the best places to eat as well as parking, which is not one of the easier details since there are few free places. We spent most of the time learning everything about the Big Island but toward the end of the day, couldn't wait to get back to the condo. It is a home and has everything so that is why it is much better than a hotel or even a resort. The condo feels like a resort (without all the extra fees and parking fees resorts charge) because the ocean views and lovely flowering courtyard, which is very private and the pool is better than any hotel pool I've been in, with plenty of relaxing lounges for suntanning. We chose not to use the bar-b-cue parts of the common area outside. Had we not been exploring so much of the time, we would have used the pool area more than once.
Great location for touring the big Island. Well stocked apartment and a comfortable place for the family to sleep with the sound of the surf.
This place is perfect. Everything we need is at our fingertips. Very clean and everything works. Wonderful home away from home!
