About This Listing
Our lovely condo on the Big Island of Hawaii is beautifully appointed with all of the amenities of home. You will enjoy our Hawaiian style, in the 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home. Wireless internet, Bose radios, plasma TV's, outdoor BBQ and lanai's. Our kitchen has more gadgets than you will know what to do with, and our morning espresso's are a must with the kona coffee! There is a laundry with full sized washer/dryer.
The Villages pool, hot tub and gym are less than a block away, and the Mauna Lani Beach club has some of the best snorkeling on the island whether your a never ever beginner or a seasoned pro.
The Mauna Lani Spa and Tennis Club is one of the finest spa's on the islands. Their fitness class and yoga classes on the beach are fabulous too.
The condo is located in the Mauna Lani resort, just 20 miles north of Kona international airport. The big island offers awesome beaches, great hikes, star gazing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, world class fishing and golf.
Don't forget that from November to April 10,000 hump back whales travel 3000 miles from Alaska to Hawaii to frolic, calf and mate in the warm Hawaiian waters. These awesome majestic creatures are so prevalent they can easily be seen from the shore. If your after a closer look there are numerous companies that will take you out on the ocean for a birds eye view of these beautiful endangered creatures.
Whether you want to zip line through the rainforest, snorkel with the Manta rays, hike to see the worlds longest most active volcano, view snow atop Mauna Kea's 13,900ft peek as you walk along some of Hawaii's most beautiful beaches or just read a book while catching up on much needed R&R listening to the waves crash on the shore the Big Island of Hawaii has it all.
Very close (one block) are the Shops at Mauna Lani complete with grocery store and numerous restaurants and shops. Our home in Hawaii is our second home. It is not your typical rental unit and as such is filled with every comfort of home. There is more to do on this island than you can imagine. Our home is absolutly perfect for a family or three couples to enjoy a trip to Hawaii. No matter what type of vacation you are looking for - reading and relaxation, to active sports, our home is in the perfect spot.
Mahalo, my husband and I and look forward to exceeding your vacation expectations.
There is no smoking in the house. Our friend will meet you on arrival and tour you around the condo and give you information on the island. Our home is your home, we ask that if you need something, something is not working or breaks, that you contact us so we can fix it or provide it. We ask that you leave our home as you found it, but enjoy all of the games, videos, books, toys, and sporting equipment we have available for our guests to enjoy. We ask that you be environmentally responsible. As such we ask that you open the windows and oversized doors for the wonderful Hawaiian breeze instead of using the air conditioning.
Great location near a lot of terrific beaches, plus the condo has access to their own private beach club down the street. Condo itself was spacious and lovely. It had everything we needed from bath and beach towels to laundry detergent and dryer sheets. The owner also has kids, so a nice surprise for us were the beach toys/umbrellas and shelf full of books in the kids room. The condo development is next to the Foodland, so getting supplies was easy and fast. Highly recommend this condo for families with (big or little) kids!
Laura (the owner) is highly responsive to both e-mails and texts. After a problem with our prior living arrangements (a different condo complex), I contacted Laura about her home last minute and she immediately got back to me. We were able to have everything squared away and into her condo less than 24 hours after contacting her. On top of that, she checked in on us to make sure our vacation was going well and to see if we needed anything. Maholo for everything, Laura!
I cannot say enough about this beautiful home. We loved every minute of our stay. Laura is a treat to deal with - and she has friends in the complex to assist with questions or issues. The house is IMPECCABLE. Beautifully appointed: comfortable beds, plenty of soft towels, full laundry, gourmet kitchen - right down to the italian espresso machine, sound system that allows ipod or iphone connection, wide-screen TVs, jacuzzi tub, gas barbecue...And a beach club that is wonderful. We've stayed in a lot of vacation homes in many cities, but never one as well cared-for and well-appointed as this. We will most definitely be back.
My family spent a week in the condo! It was great being so close to the Shops at Mauna Lani. An easy walk for coffee at Kimo Bean, the grocery store and several restaurants! The beach was fabulous with a great restaurant and snorkeling! Mahalo to Laura and her family for sharing your home!
My husband, daughter and I stayed here with my in-laws. We all loved this place. Everything was super easy in terms of getting into the house and getting oriented. Laura was great about providing all the information we needed and answering all of my questions. The house is fabulous and stocked with everything you need, both in terms of beach stuff and things like kitchen stuff. The facilities (pool/gym) are close and well-maintained, and there is a market within walking distance. If I had to come up with a con it would be that you have to drive to get to the beach, but that wasn't a big deal (and once you are there, it is an awesome beach).
We spend an amazing 12 days in the Partridge condo in Kona this October with our two girls (age 6 and 9) and some friends. The condo is beautiful, clean and has all of the immenities we needed while visiting the Big Island. The kitchen and great room are very large and we love the window walls/doors that open to the patio, yard and outdoor BBQ. We stopped at the Costco near the airport for groceries and cooked many meals which really helped bring down the cost of food while we were there. I also appreciated the washer and dryer at the condo so that we could wash the swimsuits and towels during our stay.
The condo is just short distance from the nice pool and hot tub where we spend a lot of evening time after the beach visits. The gated community is well maintained and the neighbors are extra friendly.
Right outside of the gates is a local grocery store that has a wonderful selection of food and bakery items and is very well priced. Some nights we went out for dinner and it was great being within walking distance to some good restuarants at the corner Mauna Lani Shops.
When we were not touring the island, we spent most of our time at the Mauna Lani private beach. It is located in a cove that makes ocean swimming easy and much safer for children by blocking the large waves and currents. This also makes it optimal for snorkeling. They have cabana seats, equipment rentals and a nice restaurant right at the private beach area. This was my kids favorite part of the trip.
I highly recommend staying at the Partridge condo if you are visiting the Big Island. It quickly becomes a 'home away from home' and it is hard to leave when your vacation ends. We will definitely return to Kona and book our stay at this condo.
