This is a first time situation and it was beyond my control. (family member mis-communication). This situation will NOT happen again.
I was able to find the guest a similar condo on the oceanfront for the same costs.
Excellent seaside scenery, good environment, owner had good service , nearby shopping mall and restaurants . Only one thing bothered,no air conditioning available,myself was OK but my wife showed difficult during the night, though a lot of fans were there. In one word, it was deserved to have a family vacation there.
We had an amazing time in Hawaii and loved the condo. The location was fabulous right on the beach ( although we were there in a tsunami warning which was a little scary!) looking out at the Lava. We saw dolphins and Turtles skin right past Us! It's at the quieter end of Alii drive with shops and restaurants up the hill nearby and walkable to the beach where you can swim with fish and Turtles. Having the pool was an enormous bonus as it was unusually very hot and humid, with no breeze and there's no air con in the apartment! the condo was lovely, well equipped and really comfy. I would totally recommend it.
The view from the porch is lovely. The complex landscaping is very nice. The pool was in excellent condition. The kitchen has been updated. A major problem for us was that there was no air conditioning. This was true for the whole complex except for a few added on window units. We went in September and it was in the high eighties with the same humidity (heat index approaching 100). It made it quite hard to sleep or even be indoors during the afternoon. I found the lack of AC very surprising for a US destination in the tropics.
Thanks for the review. We are working on getting A/C in the unit. We have never needed it but it appears that it may be getting hotter now. I hope you had a great vacation.
Patty's oceanfront condo was perfect for our family of 4. We loved sleeping with the sound of the waves outside our bedroom window, and having morning coffee overlooking the beautiful sea. The location was perfect for all of our island excursions and exploration, and is just a few minutes from the grocery store and great Japanese and Thai restaurants. There were beach toys for the kids, games, water shoes and snorkeling equipment to boot! There is no air conditioning, but with fans and ocean breezes it was comfortable. I would recommend this condo, and would stay here again if we return to the Big Island. Mahalo Patty!
We had an unbelievable time! The condo is immaculate, the views are incredible and the location was perfect as home base for our day trips all over the island. Patty was a great host, easy with whom to get in touch and highly responsive to any questions. We highly recommend!
Thank you Jeff, I am so glad you had a wonderful vacation. Please come back anytime. You were great guests.
Truly an ocean view condo! Great location with view on the water, beach and snorkeling close by. Home is on a complex with pool and tennis facilities and shops close by. We recommend a stay to explore the Big Island.
Thank you Mark, I am happy you were able to enjoy your vacation. Please come again. Mahalo, Patty
Patty was so kind and accommodating to us both before our trip--when we were in the planning stages and had to adjust our reservation to fit our flights--and during our stay at her comfortable condo when a fan broke and she had a handyman fix it that very day. The condo is just as lovely and the views as beautiful as they appear on Airbnb. We usually stay in hotels in Hawaii but this time chose a condo as we were traveling with our young grandsons who are very picky eaters. Staying in the condo allowed us to provide the little guys with everything they like to eat. There was nothing we lacked for in the kitchen.
We ate every meal outside on the lanai with the gorgeous view of the Pacific. Many evenings we used the outdoor grill right across the parking lot from the condo. We enjoyed the pool and tennis courts. A neighbor asked one of my grandsons to play tennis, and when he said he didn’t have equipment, the boy said, “Look in the condo,” and sure enough we found tennis rackets and balls.
There is no air conditioning in the condo, and I found the heat and humidity very uncomfortable during the day. At night the fans did a good job, and we all slept comfortably. As others have noted, we loved sleeping to the sound of the crashing waves. But once awake, I was dripping in sweat. I couldn’t even put on my sunscreen inside but had to wait until I got into the air-conditioned car to apply it.
The location of the condo very close to Kahalu'u snorkeling beach is ideal. The water is warm and shallow, perfect for young children and people of all ages. The water is so clear that we got fine colorful pictures of the underwater life including turtles. The beach has showers and restrooms and a food truck. We went to this beach just about every day. It is walking distance from the condo, but because of the heat, we drove.
Thank you Peggy. I am glad you had a wonderful vacation. We are looking into air conditioning. Come again anytime.
Beautiful ocean front property in Kona. Close to all on that side of the island. Went to sleep each night to the sound of the waves breaking on the lava outside our window!
Thank you Randy, for being such great guests, come again anytime!
Patty and her niece Erika are five stars guests that I would highly recommend: they are friends before being perfect guests.. Communication was perfect and everything went very smoothly, moreover they left the room in great condition.. So it was a real pleasure to host you, Patty and Erika, you are one of these guests who make AirBNB so awesome.. I wish you all the best.. Bonne continuation et bon plaisir, mes Amies!!! ;-)
Thank you Gautier, it was a real pleasure staying at your home. You made us feel very welcome and it would not have been the same without you. Happy Holidays!!
Ospite molto gentile, ordinata e cordiale. Consiglio a tutti di ospitarle!
