Our stay was absolutely wonderful. The condo is fully stocked with all the little things you don't remember. Getting in was a breeze and Paulette was always very responsive. The open air lanai was really a unique experience. The geckos were very friendly!
Can't wait to stay there again!!

This is a wonderful, 2 bedroom condo in a good location with a gorgeous view of the Kona coast from the dining area table and veranda and we spent 9 great days here. It is well appointed and we were very appreciative that there was food and condiments available for our use in the fridge, shelves and pantry and we left extra food (jars, bags of tortilla chips, etc.) for those that came after us. There was also a washer/dryer, beach equipment, sunscreen, lotion and many other useful items that you don't find in a hotel or time share exchange. You felt like you were moving into the owners home. Overall the complex is very quiet - we rarely heard any neighbors and everything is kept very clean. The unit is very unusual in that there are no doors on the two bedrooms, which provides a great feeling of openness. Bedroom opening curtains provide sight privacy, but early risers or those going late to bed need to be very careful not to make noise to bother others in the unit. There is no Wi-Fi or TV in the unit, which was fine for us. We used our phones as "hot spots" and watched Netflix on our laptops when we wanted to watch something. We would definitely return.
O apartamento da Paulette é incrível! Ótima localização, uma vista maravilhosa e super aconchegante! E ela é uma ótima anfitriã. Super recomendo a estadia
The condo was well equipped and clean. It is in a quiet residential area and the view from the lanai is amazing. We could come earlier than planned due to hurricane Iselle.
There bed in the masterbedroom was terribly uncompfortable (much too soft). There were no doors to close the livingroom or bedroom from the lanai, which meant that everything was always open, letting in the bugs, wind and rain. We were not informed about that in advance, though the owner knew there was a hurricane approaching and found that very misleading. We ended up spending two days moving furniture the knickknacks, tables, vases, etc. from the lanai and livingroom so nothing would get broken if the hurricane hit the building.
After our holiday we emailed the owner and told her how upset we were about this and how scared we had been (we have two little children). The owner felt sorry and asked how she could make us feel better. We asked for a partial refund, but she flatly refused and offered no other form of compensation. She only said we should have gone to a hotel to wait out the hurricane.
We fail to see how we could have gone to a hotel upon arrival at the condo with a hurricane fast approaching and most of the hotels being evacuated. We found this to be a very unpleasant and frightening experience and it was so disappointing beacause we had been looking forward to our once in a lifetime trip to Hawaii
I'm so sorry that the Decker family had their trip interrupted by the hurricane. I did my best to accommodate them and even made arrangements for them to come early. I would have gladly let them cancel the reservation and refund their money if they had found another place more suitable or if they had decided to leave the island before the hurricane hit. I also kept in contact with them and the neighbors. It was unfortunate timing for everyone concerned.
We stayed at Paulette's for two delightful weeks. It was very well equipped and roomy. The open lanai was very nice and airy. The washer and dryer are nice so you don't have to take too much clothes. the pool area was clean and sunny. Paulette was quite solicitous and called us to check on status. the location is convenient for Kona, just a few yards from Hwy 11 the main road on the island and close to a popular walking path for morning strolls. It was about 10 min to downtown Kona. The view was great. The only downside was that we had to leave.
My boyfriend and I just got back from an amazing 6-night stay at this condo. The condo is beautiful, with an open layout. The entire back wall is open to the air and has an awesome view out on to the ocean. The first morning we were there we spotted some whales from the balcony and it was so great to view them with the binoculars provided in the condo. The condo is outfitted with everything you might need for your vacation. We cooked breakfast in the kitchen every day and made coffee. The washer/dryer are super useful for washing your beach clothes. The location is also great, a short drive from downtown Kona. We would love to stay here again on our next trip to the Big Island!
C'était ma première expérience avec AirBnb et je suis très satisfaite. Le processus de réservation a été facile et j'ai eu plusieurs communications avec Paulette. Le condo est bien situé, un peu en dehors de la zone touristique de Kona mais à proximité de l'autoroute. La vue du sur l'océan est superbe. La surprise a été de constater que l'appartement est ouvert sur l'extérieur mais nous nous sommes vites habitués. Le condo était propre, bien équipé. Il y avait des articles de cuisine et des articles de ménage. Nous avons adoré notre semaine et nous avons trouvé tout ce que nous avions besoin pour passer un séjour agréable.
About the Host, Paulette
I am one member of a family of six who shares in ownership of our Hawaiian condo. We are all from Montana but consider Kona our second home. We love the mountains, outdoors, sunshine, warm weather, fun times and the ocean. Hawaii offers all of those. It gives us pleasure to share our condo with people who want a place to rest, relax and retreat into the spirit and gentle ways of our island. We are family friendly and appreciate others who are thoughtful about sharing our home. As our guest, we try to make your stay informative, enjoyable and relaxing. One of our favorite things to do is to sit on the lanai soaking in the magical views of the ocean. We are sky mile fans and make as many trips over as possible. Probably our motto would be: Treat others as you would like to be treated. Aloha
