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!
Thank you Maureen! We love our home and love sharing it with people like you! Maholo!
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.
Thank you Julia! Look forward to meeting you in person one day.
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!
Very well maintained house, privat setting, short drive to beach, some restaurants, shopping and small pool less than 5 minutes walking distance, check-in and check-out worked out very easy. Thanks for the organization and thanks for renting 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.
My second stay here was as good as the first. Even better, as they've added a coffee set up in the kitchen. I look forward to staying here again as it's a great solution for the Truckee/Northstar area.
Like everybody else, we really enjoyed our stay. Nice host who is very friendly and welcoming. Great communication leading up to our arrival, too!
The place is very nice, cozy, quiet, and private in beautiful surroundings just as described in the listing. Well stocked and nice little kitchen for cooking, a great bathroom, too.
I strained a muscle that kept me from getting out and about as much as I would have liked, and the access to fast wifi while resting up was great!
We had a fantastic stay at Laura's Truckee Studio. From the first point of contact, right until when we checked out, Laura was extremely responsive and communicative. The studio had everything we needed and is perfectly located only minutes from Northstar. It's also about a mile to the Fifty-Fifty Brewing Company, where we had a fantastic, reasonably-priced dinner. And it's also only a couple of miles to charming, pretty downtown Truckee. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks Laura!
A nice studio apartment in the woods, about five minutes drive to downtown Truckee. Very clean, recently remodeled.
Great wifi for those who can't leave the outside world; for those who want just peace and quiet, it's there.
The host met us and was helpful at all times.
