I am from California and now live in Hawaii.
I was in Kona for the Lavaman Triathalon and wanted to stay in a nice, quiet place as opposed to the big resorts further up the coast. Bridget's condo was a super relaxing, easy access place for our base camp. It's a very comfortable condo with everything you might need. Loved the sound of the ocean at night while sleeping. Really nice snorkeling just down the road. Fun shopping and good restaurants just up the road. Helps to have a car, and the parking space is awesome. Da Poke Shop across the road is the best! Would definitely recommend and would stay there again.
This is a very nice condo on the fourth floor ( nice view) and we had a great time here. There is a elevator. We sat on the lanai and watched about 50 spinner dolphins for over two hours jumping in the ocean. We walked to town a couple of times but used a cab for the night life. It was great. There is a small beach just to the right of the condo and a big snorkeling beach 1 mile away. We had a great stay. Very clean and well kept.Thank you Bridget, for everything.
Bridget and John's condo is a perfect location for a couple or small family visiting the Kailau Kona area. The condo is well equipped and worked well for us. The traffic noise is considerable but its not something that would stop me from staying there again. It is a great value for the cost to stay in this location.
When I had a small problem with the tv, John came over immediately and helped me out.
Condo was open and we were greeted by Bridget and John upon arrival. Very cordial people and wanted to make sure our needs were met. Everything about the condo and island was wonderful. No problems and we had EVERYTHING we could possibly have needed. Beautiful grounds and comfortable condo. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely be back!
Amazing condo, amazing view, amazing host!
folks I gotta tell you this was the last minute book I was it mediately accepted when I arrived I did not expect to see such a glorious 2 bedroom apartments the balcony overlooks the front of the building and the pool area and you could see the ocean literally 50 yards away. this apartment has everything you could possibly want to live all you need to bring your clothes. and you couldn't even wash them in the apartment. I arrived with an engaged couple that were pleasantly surprised also. I would highly recommend this piece of property, thanks Bridget for your hospitality hopefully I will see you again.
A wonderful place to stay while in Kone. The hosts are friendly, helpful, available and Accommodating. The apartment is amply furnished and equipt for cooking, swimming, and relaxing. The pool and grounds are well kept. I had three different sets of visitors stay for a week during the month i was there, it worked out well. The only difficulty was useng the trolley or bus to get to the stores. A car was convient but renting one during the holidays was very exprnsive, i highly recommend this condo.
The Condo felt like I had been invited to stay and look after a friends house. Very homey, clean, neat with everything I needed. Good location - close to the water, a 5 minute walk to Da Poke Shack, 5 minute walk to a swimking beach, and a 5 - 10 minute drive to Kona central.
Another great air bnb stay! The condos location was the best - i stayed here for ironman week and it was a short walk to all of the festivities. Very convenient to town, restaurants, and groceries.the condo was clean and equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay.
Great place to stay. Literally 5 minute walk to downtown Kona...the heart of it. Convenient to EVERYTHING yet complex was quiet and a great place to rest. Would have loved to have had some owner "tips" on things to do/see, but there are plenty of magazines for that, so we felt like we had enough info...I guess just some tips on how to maybe break up your vacation and see things (can be lots of driving involved to see Mauna Kea, Volcano, etc.) Pool was nice. Condo was pretty well stocked, but could have had more toilet paper, foil, garbage bags (think they just didn't realize those things were running low...went to grab a garbage bag and the box was empty). Bridget was very prompt in responding to anything we needed. When we didn't have the correct key to get into the pool area, she had it there the next morning.
Kona is an amazing place as is the Big Island in general. SO much to see and do! We will definitely be back and would love to stay here again.
