The ocean couldn't be any closer for first-class viewing! Watch world-class surfers ride the waves while dolphins frolic in their wake. Enjoy seasonal whale watching right from your lanai and get a close up view of the giant sea turtles that come up to the tide pools below the lanai to sun themselves (no touching though!)

Area Information
The Big Island boasts the clearest water and finest snorkeling sites of all the Hawaiian Islands. View the famed Banyans surfers right next door from your lanai! The dry west side of the Island has no less than 20 of the best snorkeling areas in the Islands.

Excellent swimming and snorkeling at a gorgeous, sugar sand beach at Kahalu'u Beach Park is five minutes drive away. If you prefer to stay active yet keep your feet dry, try hiking and sightseeing awe-inspiring Volcanoes National Park, one-and-a-half hours shoreline drive away.

The Big Island has all that your ideal vacation location could possibly offer...and more!
Nearby Restaurants
Da Poke Shack is immediately down on the ground level of our complex, and is reknowned to be the freshest Hawaiian 'sushi' meals on the Island.
We also recommend: Annie's Burgers and Brews, Lava Java, and Humpy's in the Kona area or nearby. In Waimea/Kamuela we highly recommend Island Brewhaus for the best microbrews on the Island...and their food is also worth the drive northeast through beautiful country.
Transportation
Situated ideally just three miles from Kona, yet far away from the bustle to be secluded, our two-lane road, Alii Drive, is very active with walkers, joggers, and bicyclers on it's wide, pedestrian shoulders. There is the local shuttle bus which stops immediately in front of the complex for a quick ride to Kona, and taxi service is available just a minute away. We recommend a rental car to see all the sights on the Big Island.
Best Time of the Year to Travel
Typical weather is between 70-95 year round, with the warmest and most humid 'low season' between August-September, when the most tropical storms may also occur.
Ironman Triathlon occurs in mid-October, and is the busiest week of the year.
Water temperatures vary little throughout the year making it pleasant most months for swimming, but warmest during the summer months into Fall.

My husband and I spent a very relaxing 3 weeks here in late May and early June. It's ideally located, beautifully decorated, very comfortable and well stocked with everything you'll need. The owners have thought of everything! We especially enjoyed the BBQ as well as the pool and hot tub and most of all the lanai ... hearing the crashing surf and watching the turtles, surfers, boats and gorgeous sunsets. We even saw the green flash! We'll definitely come back!!!

Jan and Dick D

Owner's reply:

Aloha Katie and Gary, Thank you so much for staying with us once again! We agree that our location can't be bested by any other, and we are very pleased to continue offering our return Guests some welcome bubbly and a rate discount. We sincerely hope you come back year after year, returning to your favorite vacation accommodation.

We recently spent 8 nights at this "KONA AMAZING CONDO" with our best friends! This condo is very charming and very homey, comfortable for 4 adults. We spent a lot of time on the spacious lanai watching the surfers and in my opinion the best place to watch the sunset on the island! The ocean crashing on the rocks is so relaxing I could watch it forever! One night it stormed and it was exciting to watch and listen to the surf. My friend took an amazing photo of a rainbow on the ocean the next morning! The tide pools were awesome we loved going out on the rocks each morning to see the turtles and bright yellow fish and a few eels! The rocks are slippery even with water shoes best to stay on dry areas! This condo has everything you need well stocked kitchen,grills,beach towels,snorkel equip,boogie boards,beach chairs,cooler,paper products,washer and dryer,laundry and dishwasher soap. Great location 3 miles from town a five min drive! We loved our volcanic rock, tide pool ocean view! We drove to a beautiful beach Hapuna beach state park great place for boogie boards. Awesome snorkeling Kahalu'u beach park 5 min south of condo. Plan a whole day to drive to Hilo to the Volcanos National Park ( stay until dusk to see the red glow from observatory) There is so much to see on the Big Island! If you like fish go to "Bite Me" fresh fish market at the Marina near the Kona airport. We went for lunch,fish tacos and a panko breaded filet catch of the day which was "Hebi (spearfish) best tasting fish ever, we even saw a 22 Lb Mahi Mahi caught fresh that morning! Kona Brewery was a fun casual place for dinner. The owners Jan and Dick were a joy to work with and Georgia (property manager) and her husband Wayne will take care of any concerns you may have. LOVED OUR STAY AT THIS CONDO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Owner's reply:

With aloha, Rhonda, we are so thrilled that your stay at Konamazing condo was so awesome! Guests will appreciate your detailed recommendations for cafes and things to see. Agreed: The Big Island has so much to offer a visitor,. Our greatest wish if for you to make this your Island home.
We cannot do this without our wonderful Guests! Mahalo

The condo with the million dollar view was the perfect place for us to enjoy 8 nights on the Big Island with our very best friends. This condo unit sits 20-30 feet from the ocean where the sound of the surf is your symphony, along with beautiful birds. Surfers to your left, your own personal aquarium right in front of you, tide pools with beautiful, fish, eels, and our favourite , the guardian and protector of families, sea turtles. Walk among the lava with shoes, carefully ,and enjoy these beautiful turtles and all the sea life. We did almost every morning . Be careful walking into the tide pools there are sea urchins that will sting you, there are signs up to warn you, be careful and watchful, so many people just stepped into them in high tide. YIKES. The grounds of this condo are well kept, lovely and you can barbecue with the surf and tide pools right in front of you , cook and enjoy the view with a cocktail and enjoy. Surfers are to your left riding the waves from sun up until sundown.. Sunsets are heavenly on the lani , another favourite time of day when we were around. GORGEOUS. The lani is set up so comfortable with a patio table for dining and two comfy lounge chair, my favourite spot. The condo is well kept and has all the modern conveniences to make your stay complete and comfy. Very comfortable beds, family room space and a great workable kitchen. There is a washer and dryer and the washrooms are a good size. The master bedroom has its own patio door that takes you out to the lani, or you can sleep with it open and fall asleep with the crashing sound of the surf. the 2nd bedrool while smaller is very comfortable. There are so many great things about this property. You are very close to much of the diviersity that makes the Big Island. There are many beaches and restaurants close by .We loved this condo, loved our exquisite views, would highly recommend as you enjoy, explore and live the Hawaii life. Thank you Jan and Dick for sharing this fabulous space. CHEERS

Owner's reply:

Aloha, Debra and friends! We are absolutely thrilled that you enjoyed your time in our condo. We couldn't do it without wonderful Guests! Your review says it all: The condo provides the ultimate comforts, where you will be sure to be lulled to the sounds of the waves just below and sunsets off the lanai. Or explore 'gently' the tide pools beside your large barbeque/picnic area just steps from your front door. Above all, we most heartily welcome you back to enjoy nature's finest setting!

We had a perfectly wonderful vacation at your condo! the couches beds and lounge chairs were comfortable and we felt very much at home. I especially appreciated the good quality cookware and knives. It made preparing meals at home easy and effortless. The pool and snorkel equipment and aqua sox were much appreciated; the "noodles" were a big hit! We will definitely return! The location is fabulous. not too close to town and easy beach access although the pool and beachfront could easily provide all the water entertainment you might want! Thanks for a great get away!

I'm planning on returning in the summer & hope the condo is available for us again. We highly recommend it for many reasons. We read the other reviews & we agree with all of them.

We stayed here for a week. My Husband and I, in-laws, and adult Son. The Room we had was AMAZING! What a view and the roar of the ocean. Clean comfortable beds with fan blowing on us slept great. In-laws had the other bedroom/bath but they wanted our room!! LOL it didn't have the closet space (owners have stored beach toys in that room) it would be perfect for kids or other couple who don't pack for every day your there! There is a washer/dryer so you don't need a lot. Besides what does everyone wear in Hawaii? Shorts/Tank Tops, Summer dresses and swim suits. All the towels for the beach plus beach chairs, coolers, umbrella, boogie boards are provided! Kitchen had everything for all kinds of cooking! I loved the decor, it's hard to keep things looking new with the ocean mist/salt water but everything was comfortable. Lanai was where we hung out! Room for all. Location was perfect. Not too close to shopping/crowds but just a short 2 mile drive. Walk down the stairs past the pool and there is "Da Poke Shack" (Amazing!!) lunch/dinner. Next door was Snorkel gear rental and a short drive to Kahaluu Beach Park best snorkel spot especially for beginners. We had our in-laws loving it. They are early 70's. This was their first trip to the island as well as my son. Sofa bed was just right for him. We didn't feel cramped at all. We spotted turtles swimming below the Lanai as well as some spinner dolphins!! My husband and I have been to the Island 4 times now and this is the best place we've found with convent location! Jan had a special gift bottle of Italian Champagne (Delish) set out for us as she knew we were there to celebrate our 20 years plus we are both recently retired! Thank You Jan for all your hard work in making this visit so special!! Will defiantly come back!! There is an elevator and parking under condo's. very convenient and safe.

My husband and I arrived in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, on September 11 and left the night of September 18. We met Georgia, the manager handling the rental, and she handed off the keys to the condo and showed us around. The condo is tastefully decorated and very well stocked with necessities. When both sliding doors in the back of the condo where open, there was a great view of the ocean and a wonderful breeze came in, especially if the front door was open and the front screen closed. I loved hearing the sounds of the waves. Sometimes they were really quite loud. There is a parking garage below the condo, and it was quite easy to get into and out of the garage. We had a lovely time while staying in the condo.

Aloha! We are not the bed & breakfast type, but walking through the door of #220, Kona Bali Kai, we felt as if we'd come home. We are foodies, and the kitchen was perfect, but the beautiful lanai and intoxicating sound of the ocean waves beckoned. We immediately saw turtles down in the tidal pools, and our kids raced outside to film them. I grew up in South Louisiana, catching turtles in the canals behind our house, but until my kids saw the turtles, I'd never realized how rare it is to see turtles in their natural state. Each day, my young son and I got up at 5:30am to watch the turtles. Numerous beaches are within a quick drive or a brisk walking distance; we tried a different beach every day. (The kids even took surfing lessons.) The condo had everything we needed for our beach outings - snorkeling gear, beach towels, chairs, beach mats, a large umbrella, and even, to the kids' delight, boogie boards! Kona is also within a short drive or a brisk walking distance, and we had time to visit and explore Kona almost every day. The location of the condo made a day-trip to HIlo and Kilauea Volcano very doable, so we had a "blast," exploring the Eastern side of The Big Island. We were celebrating my birthday and our anniversary, and attention detailed Jan had left us a bottle of champagne, along with a few local treats. The kitchen had champagne glasses and wine glasses, so my husband and I enjoyed several evenings, sitting on the lanai, sipping an adult beverage while our son played his D.S. and our 20-year-old daughter skyped with her boyfriend, stationed in Germany with the Air Force. Yes, the condo had great wireless service so the long distance "romance" was not disrupted! This was the first time we haven't wanted to return to our own home on Whidbey Island, a paradise in and of itself. My husband was able to completely relax and that was a miracle. Thank you SO much for that! It's nice to see him smiling and laughing more these days, even though we are now back in the real world. The Big Island is an amazing place and #220, Kona Bali Kai made it perfect. Jan and Georgia were awesome and the entire rental experience went smoothly - the deposit check was returned to us before I could even mail out any souvenirs. We hope to return very soon. MAHALO!

Jan and Dick D

Owner's reply:

It is our absolute pleasure that we offer our amazing condo to Guests to regroup, relax, and enjoy family time.
It's location is ideally situated for discovering many of the stunning sights offered by the Big Island, or, conversely, just relaxing and being entertained by the 'symphony' of waves crashing below the lanai. We are so happy to hear that you felt at home, in "Paradise".
A huge Mahalo, with gratitude, for staying at Kona Bali Kai 220. You are more than welcome to return!!

July 16, 2015

This condo is right on the ocean with unobstructed views of the ocean. There are constantly turtles in the tide pool in front of the condo. We spent almost all of our time on the lanai (patio). This is a well stocked condo with comfortable beds. The owner and property manager were very responsive. We used the bbq outside and our kids used the pool where they met some friends. Da Poke Shack has amazing poke, right on the property. There is no air but you are on the water which keeps it very breezy. If you are not used to crashing waves at night this may be loud but I think most people find it soothing. The grounds are very well maintained. We saw a person cleaning the grill in great detail every day (this condo is right in front of the bbq area which can get busy). This area is quieter than staying close to the touristy downtown Kona area. We had a great time and I can't think of anything that they were missing, it was so well stocked. Beach toys, beach chairs, towels, paper towels, toilet paper, extra sheets, utensils, plates, coffee filters, pans, cleaner, etc. The owner put together a nice binder on with instructions and information on the local birds and area. There are some great fish books for snorkelers and other tourist books in the unit we enjoyed. And I should add it was very clean! Love that. The owner followed up to make sure everything was okay. We have stayed in other places and I have to say communication and warmth from the owner here was the best I have experienced. I would recommend it and hope to be back :)

Wonderful time. My family lives in Hawaii (grandchildren and son) and it was such a good time. We enjoyed a wedding by the water, and played in the ocean, and swam in the pool. My grandchildren told me how fun it was to stay in my beautiful home. Everything was easy with all the amenities and the resort staff so kind and courteous. Cannot wait to return.

Mahalo, Bunny, for staying with us: We feel honored that your newlyweds chose our waterfront condo for the beginning chapter of their lives. The sun's warmth, moist sea breeze, swaying palms, and lovely tidepool swimming with sea turtles is the perfect atmosphere to enjoy a celebration!
Your experience of our professional Kona Bali Kai employees will be passed on. They consistently respond with courtesy to our Guests, and are truly the best in Kona!

When we first arrived at the Kona Bali Kai condo and stepped thru the door, we were immediately drawn to the large lanai and amazing views. You are right there on the ocean with the waves crashing just a short distance away. Overlooking a tide pool where you can spot turtles basking on the rocks everyday, the ocean providing spinner dolphins for entertainment, and just out to your left surfers catching the waves. The condo offered everything needed plus some, very well maintained, clean, well stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, beach chairs, towels, cooler, and enough room to sleep 6 and entertain. There is a pool area and hot tub, which we never found crowded and a nice addition for a quick dip. Also located in the condo property is "Da Poke shack" rated by Trip advisor as the #2 restaurant in Kona. The condo's location is in a quiet neighborhood, with great access to downtown Kona for shopping and wonderful restaurants, farmers markets for local produce, and some of the most beautiful beaches for snorkeling, body surfing or just relaxing. We had a wonderful time at Kona Bali Kai and cant wait to come back for another visit...Aloha...

Exquisitely located. Great views of the ocean; turtles, whales, dolphins...Close to the famous Banyans surf break. The lanai is the best space to hang out! The complex has common BBQ that we used almost every night. I would recommend this place to anyone who like to fall asleep with the sound of crashing waves. It is mesmerizing - we came back home and everything felt flat!!

My husband and I stayed here for 8 days in late February. I can't say enough good things about this great condo. We went to Hawaii to relax and this was the perfect place! The view from the lanai was incredible .... whales, spinner dolphins, surfers, tide pools with turtles, boats of all kinds and, best of all the sunsets. The complex was quiet except for the crashing surf and birdsong, the pool & hot tub were never crowded, the BBQ grill which we used every night was convenient, and the owners have provided for our every need. We especially appreciated the well-appointed kitchen and we made good use of their cooler, beach towels and beach chairs. Check out the Farmer's Market in downtown Kailua as well as the bigger one in Hilo for a variety of interesting tropical fruit.

Jan and Dick D

Owner's reply:

Aloha Katie and thank you for your great review! Relaxing on the lanai is awesome and we're so glad you loved it as well!! The location is very central to everything that the Big Island has to offer, whether you prefer to just enjoy a glass of wine watching a spectacular sunset off the lanai, or you prefer hiking the many trails at Volcanoes National Park.
Please be our Guests again soon. Mahalo!!

My wife and I stayed here in February for a week and had an absolute blast. The lanai is perfect with the waves crashing on the beach just below you (there is a little patch of grass with some grills, then the Pacific!) and was a great place to sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset each night. Working with the owners and their local contact for the condo was super easy. We had no trouble with payment, or getting our deposit back super fast after our stay. Overall the only down side was that we had to leave!

The owner, Jan, was a delight to work with. Very professional and quick to respond. My deposit was returned quickly! The condo had everything I needed...and I mean everything!!! Including "island" snacks to carry me through to the morning when I could get to the store. All necessary cleaning/laundry supplies, beach towels, chairs and boogie boards, etc! The only thing I needed to buy was an ice chest which I left for future travelers. I stay on Big Island regularly and would definitely stay here again if it is available.

We just returned from our stay at this beautiful condo..What a gorgeous view and this property has everything you need to just relax and have a great time. All of the great reviews on this condo are spot on !!!! It has a fully stocked kitchen from all the paper supplies you need down to the seasonings for grilling. I've never stayed in a place that supplied so much. The unit is located in a quiet neighborhood but an easy drive into Kona if you like. The owner Jan is great to work with and if you have any problems during your stay the manager Georgia will take care of you immediately. It's nice to have someone there if you would need them. I guarantee you will not be disappointed staying here. If you are planning on just relaxing and enjoying the ocean views this is the place for you. ENJOY !!!!! :-) :-) :-)

We just got back from a one week stay at this beautiful condo. This two bedroom-2 bath unit comes FULLY stocked with beach towels, snorkel and boogie boards, laundry supplies and more. It was impecably clean. Georgia, the local property manager, met us at the condo when we arrived and showed us around. The condo is centrally located in Kona and has the great advantage of being about 100 feet from the Da Poke Shack, where we ate no less than 5 times on our trip and is rated as the best restaurant in Hawaii! There is a convenient underground parking and it was a short walk from the condo to our car. The unit is right on the beach, in front of a tide pool area where we saw turtles. There is also a popular surf spot just to the left of the building so we could watch the surfers from the lanai each morning. It is so close to the water that the sound of the surf is loud, which we loved but which might bother some people. The unit is also right in front of the communal barbeque area. I was a little worried about noise from people gathering to barbeque but this was not a problem at all while we were there. We spent a lot of our time on the large lanai, either eating at the dining table or relaxing on the chaise lounges. I'm already missing falling asleep to the sound of the waves and I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone planning a stay in Kona.

Owner's reply:

Aloha Christine,

Thank you, we so appreciate your review! As owners of this condo, our guests' top rated experience is our highest priority. Da Poke Shack, conveniently located on the lower level of this unit, has indeed delighted their clientele of thousands with their fresh seafood dishes, and now it seems that they have two more faithful customers :0)

We hope you return to visit our little slice of paradise again, soon!!

Mahalo,

Perfect place to stay for ocean front view. Clean place, comfortable furniture, well-stocked kitchen. I appreciated newer refrigerator with filtered water, microwave, and stove. Internet was really good too! Check-in was prompt and easy. Jan was very nice making sure that we've got everything we need and offering advice on local beaches. Great patio with comfortable furniture and a million dollar ocean view. We enjoyed morning coffee there as well as the view of thunder & lightning from passing storm. Location is great as it is 5 min away from town center and our favorite Bongo Ben's restaurant and 10 min away from Keahou Bay (and Keahou shopping center). There is also a small store across the street where one can buy immediate necessities.

"This is a beautiful condo in a beautiful location. We stayed here seven days and made it our jumping off point for visiting the Big Island. The condo is large, and slept four of us comfortably. The lanai is large and we ate all our meals outside, with a great 180 degree view of the water, and beautiful sunsets every night. There is a great breeze that blows through the unit, and it remains cool inside, even though it is hot outside. The condo is well stocked with kitchenware and linens- everything you need. There is a communal BBQ just outside the condo which we used a few times. The condo maintenance people take very good care of the grounds- we watched them clean the BBQ every morning! We had a welcome gift of some local Kona products, which was really nice. Jan also left us a binder with some helpful information about the local area. The checkin process was flawless- Georgia was waiting for us in the unit when we arrived. If you stay here, make sure you go down to the small tide pool outside; we were able to see sea turtles every morning. And the Poke Shack downstairs is excellent for a mid-day snack! "

The Kona Bali Kai condos are away from the busiest section of Ali'i Drive, but still close enough to the bars and restaurants in Kailua-Kona. The condos themselves offer easy parking, a shared pool and jacuzzi that were held at the right temperature, and of course super easy to get delicious poke at Da Poke Shack for lunch. In addition we appreciated the well-maintained shared grill and ability to watch the turtles in the tide pool right outside our window. The views from this particular unit were fabulous and we liked the location of this unit within the complex (easy access to stairs to garage, away from the noise from the pool or elevator).

But the best part was that everything we thought we would need was supplied in the condo: A huge selection of kitchen items like a pitcher for drinks, steamer basket, coffee maker, etc. But it also had everything we'd need for a day out: beach chairs and beach towels, an insulated picnic bag for a packed lunch, and of course an in-unit washer and dryer. The only thing we had to buy was our own food.

Thank you to the Dodge's for providing such a relaxing place for my husband and I and my sister and brother-in-law.

What a wonderful condo!
The pictures do not do this place justice! The view from the lanai was amazing and totally unobstructed. We saw whales and dolphins. And in the tide pools just below the lanai we saw sea turtles, colorful fish, crabs, sea cucumbers, sea anemones, etc. You can watch the surfers from the lanai too. The bed was extremely comfortable. Everything you need is in the condo, the kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, silverware, cookware, blender, toaster, coffee maker, full refrigerator, stove with oven, dishwasher. All paper products, foil, dish soap, etc. Even laundry soap for the washer! I was worried about no air conditioning but there was a nice breeze through the condo and we didn't need it. Fell asleep listening to the ocean every night. Close to town, easy walk to restaurants and shopping including the farmers market. We will definitely stay here again!

Wonderful week
My husband and I spent a week int his nice condo. At first glance, from the outside, it seemed a little dated, but it is extremely well maintained and we loved everything about it: the kitchen is well stocked, the lanai is large with its dining table and 2 chairs for lounging, the view is just amazing. Beautiful sunsets from our lanai. We cooked most nights so we really enjoyed the nice plates and the quality wine glasses. The condo was clean, comfortable and well situated. We appreciated the covered parking. Our deposit was promptly received a few days after our departure. We would definitely go back and we recommend this condo.

GREAT VIEW FROM LANAI!!
Our family stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The full kitchen made it easy to cook breakfast and enjoy it on the lanai where the sunrise view was amazing. There are 2 beds and one couch that can pullout which sleeps a total of up to 6 people comfortably.

LOVED OUR WEEK STAY AT THIS AMAZING CONDO
We came for my niece's wedding. Loved the condo and its location! The lanai is fabulous! Eating meals out there was such a treat! Gorgeous sunsets every evening. The family enjoyed climbing on the lava rocks to view all the sea life. We were blessed to see a Giant Sea Turtle sunning itself on the rocks. What a treat! My sister stayed in the same complex. We all loved it! Thanks for a magical vacation. The condo felt like home right away! I would highly recommend Paradise helicopter tour. Wonderful way to see the entire island!!

Best choice
We are here now and we are having a great time. I agonized over the choice of a condo - it's very hard not knowing the area, but this unit turned out to be the perfect choice. We have seen whales and sea turtles steps from our lanai, there is a great surfing spot right out in front, a poke shack (Hawaii dish with fresh fish) at the condo, small grocery store a few hundred feet away, everything you need. The condo is perfect for us and we are two couples with an 8 year old. Arranging everything through the manager was flawless. It is close to many shops and restaurants. There are plenty of beach towels, snorkels, chairs, everything you need. The gas grills are well maintained, with a picnic area. Everything is perfect.

Our Wedding & Honeymoon Getwaway
This trip was very special to us, since we were coming to get married on Kuki'o Beach and to spend our Honeymoon in Kona after. When we thought about where to stay, we did a lot of research, and when we saw this condo, and read the reviews of how helpful and personable the manager was, we knew we found our place!

When we arrived, the manager arranged for us to get the key, since it was late in the day. She had a bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge for us, and the baking items set out, since I was planning to bake our own wedding cake. What a nice surprise!!! She really went out of her way to make the experience awesome, and we couldn't have asked for more. She was amazing to us and we were so appreciative. It was great being in a condo, versus a resort for many reasons, such as it was way less crowded, we had the pool to ourselves most days, and we had all the luxuries that you don't have at resorts such as a stocked kitchen, BBQ grills, beach chairs, a cooler, and a beach bag to go. It was perfect!
When we first stepped onto the lanai and saw the view of the ocean, it took our breath away! We watched turtles and surfers and the most gorgeous sunsets ever. We spent a lot of time there relaxing and enjoying the sounds of the ocean. It was also awesome having the waves lull us to sleep each night, so peaceful! This was our first trip to Hawaii, and the manager made it so welcoming and stress-free for us. Mahalo!!!

Our wedding and Honeymoon were absolutely perfect, and after all of our adventures such as the manta-ray night snorkel, our helicopter ride over the volcanoes, numerous trips to explore different beaches, sightseeing in Hilo, or just hanging out on the fun and touristy Ali'i Drive, we always were happy to head back to our home away from home! We enjoyed two fun-filled weeks, and wish we could have stayed longer! It was honestly hard to leave such a beautiful place that truly was paradise!

The condo was spotless and decorated with fun Hawaiian touches, the grounds were beautifully kept, and we felt very safe with security making their rounds to make sure all was well. I know we were there just before the high season, and that too was perfect for us. It was quiet, relaxing, and a place we would love to return to. We were so thankful for all you did to make our trip one we will never ever forget! Mahalo!!!
