We had a great week's stay here in the middle of January.
We stayed in a ground level 1 bedroom 1 bathroom condo. It had all the normal amenties of a vacation condo, washer/dryer, full kitchen. The small lanai looked out at the pool area. We had to go out and around one more unit to access the pool area and great barbecue area. The unit was very clean. The bathroom showed wear but was clean. The bedroom was short on electrical outlets and some might have been overloaded. As other reviewers have said there is only a small air conditioning unit in the living room, but ceiling fans and windows allowed for enough air flow. Two complaints would be that the bedrooms are on the courtyard side and people walking by talking sound like they are in the room and secondly I would have preferred a chair in the living room, there was only a futon/couch. It was comfortable enough but I prefer a chair. I don't think I would have like to share it with another couple even though it was rated for four. It would be small and close quarters. For one couple it was just right.
We really enjoyed our stay and it was within walking distance to much of the Kona business district.
Lastly the unexpected extra was the covered garage parking. We had a convertible and left the top down every night with no fears. The people we encountered were real friendly, employees and guest/owners, all. I'm sure there are differences in units but we had a wonderful unit and time.
