We absolutely loved our 2 weeks on the Big Island and this condo unit was a big part of it. There was plenty of space for our four children and the two of us to spread out and feel at home. The lanai was large and we spent every evening eating our dinner out there and watching the sunset. Located right on the water it felt as if noone else was there when you were on the lanai - just you and the ocean. The condo was very clean and had everything our family needed. It was located close to great snorkeling - a half mile away from Kahaluu Beach and a half hour from Four Step by the Place of Refuge which is a great place. We had a chance to swim out to a deeper section of the bay at Four step and enjoy the dolphins. Boogie Boarding was great at White Sands beach a mile away. The best beach for swimming, snorkeling and relaxing was about 40 minutes north at Mauna Kea but you have to get there early because they only allow so many guests into the resort parking lot. If you don't get in there go to Hapuna beach which is right next door to it on the south side. We also paid to snorkel with the Manta Rays. I'm pretty cheap but we all felt this was one of the best things we did on our trip. Worth every penny! Sandi, who manages the condo is very helpful and made the whole process easy. We highly recommend this condo. We can't wait to go back some day!
