Mother of three, Business owner and wife. Love my husband, family, life, the outdoors and great food and wine.
I have one word for Laura's condo and that is "amazing". The property is beautiful - incredibly spacious with many outdoor areas to relax. We particularly enjoyed the upstairs lanua with its outdoor bed. The quality of the interior is very high and has everything you need for a stay with a very well equipped kitchen, outdoor baba, fabulous bathrooms and separate laundry. The area is a great place to stay. I hadn't done much research before booking my stay but Laura's condo is on the Kohala Coast (where the best resorts are). As part of the rental you have access to a private beach club which has amazing coral reefs just metres from the shore. The best beach on the island (Hapuna) is a 5 min drive away. There is also a small shopping mall v close to the condo with a grocery store and some excellent restaurants. We loved our stay and I can't recommend Laura's condo highly enough.
Thank you so much Susan. We love our home in Mauna Lani, love to share it with people that seem to enjoy it as much as we do. Aloha!
We had such an excellent stay at Laura's home! From the start, Laura was always very responsive to any questions we had, and her property manager, Kathi, was immensely helpful and friendly as well. The home was super clean and beautifully furnished, and was spacious for our party of 6 (4 adults and 2 children). The home came equipped with everything we needed- luxury kitchen and bedrooms, cooking supplies and utensils, beach towels, etc. The Villages (where the home is located) has a small but beautiful pool that our kids used everyday (1 min walk), as well as a small gym that we used (basic cardio equipment and free weights). The shops are a 1-min walk away as well, where there are nice restaurants, boutiques, and a full grocery store. We made the 5-min drive each day to the Mauna Lani Beach club, where there is an awesome beach and cove where we also swam and snorkeled every day. Our kids (ages 6 and 9) especially loved this beach. This home, with its quiet yet central location and gorgeous design, truly made our vacation special. Thank you again so much for letting us use your home!
Thank you so much for your kind words. We love our home in Hawaii so much and it is great to hear that you did too! We hope to host you or your friends again.
Laura's place proved a great place for our family holiday. Her house was clean, quiet and comfortable. The location was great for us as we wanted to be able to stroll to restaurants, cafes and a grocery store - all of which we could do from her place. The house has a nice BBQ area and a very well equipped kitchen. There is a small gym within the shared pool complex just down from the house (2 min walk) which me and my wife enjoyed using each morning. The house is well located to access many of the nice beach areas on this side of the island. It's also a good spot for morning walks
You really have to drive to the beach but the access to the local beach club that Laura provides is a bonus as it's very well set up, safe for kids and fun for grown up kids too - snorkelling there is good if you swim out a bit
Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Laura as she was overseas but her friend Kathi met us soon after arrival and helped us settle in
Overall a great holiday made possible by a well set up house in a safe resort style location
So happy your trip was a success. Kathi is amazing too. Look forward to your next journey to Hawaii. Please share our home with your friends in New Zealand.
Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. It proved to be very central for our race and close proximity to several beaches, restaurants and markets. We wouldn't hesitate to rent the house again!
Thank you! We look forward to your next visit!
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.
