What an absolutely beautiful condo and setting. Right across the street from a fabulous snorkeling beach. The condo itself was perfect. Everything that you need and more. Very clean, all the plates, dishes, utensils, wifi and appliances to make it a perfect vacation. The grounds are well kept, nice pool and jacuzzi. And being on alii Drive, it is a perfect place to walk or run in the morning. We are already planning our stay next year and will book this condo again. Oh and the communication from the Manager and the owner were top notch as well. Thanks for a great stay.

We've been visiting Kahaluu Bay for years, but this is the first time we've stayed in the Beach Villas. This unit is perfectly situated for views of the bay and beach park. It's also very nicely furnished and equipped. The best thing about this location (for us) is that we can walk to the beach for snorkeling, without the hassle of car keys and the like. We could snorkel in the morning and be home having breakfast before the crowds arrive.

This rental is beyond measure, the two bedroom two bath unit has an ocean view of the island best snorkeling beach, it includes all equipment for enjoyable water play, the cozy private infinity pool and hot tub make evening relaxation a heavenly. Free parking, close to shopping for supplies needed to fill the full service kitchen! We made use of the BBQ located in the pool area then dined on the patio till the sun hit the horizon and watched as it's oranges turned pink then fading into a purple darkness before setting completely!! The unit is clean well kept and spacious! There was a big flat screen tv we never used however made great use of the stereo system. Both showers were lovely, huge with an earthy ceramic tile color and design, there were enough towels and toiletries to last the trip, the units washed and dryer allowed us to dry towels and beach clothes for the next day usage. The view alone is worth the cost, however every other accommodation that this unit offers makes it a great gem! You as I will not be disappointed!!! Surely renting this unit again when Kona sunsets call me back!!! Mahalo and a hui hou

You will love the decor at the Villas it is pure Hawaiian. And the view from the Lanai was spectacular to include double rainbows first thing in the morning to start your day. It does not get any better than that. Also the snorkeling rocked. There were turtles and lots of beautiful fish just outside your front door. It is just a walk across the the street from the condo and you are there. Don't miss it while you stay at the Villas. The only problem that we encountered was a strong smell of bug spray form underneath the kitchen sink which was really toxic.

If you want to snorkel, this is an great choice for your visit to Kona. The snorkeling at Kahaluu Beach is fantastic for any skill level- we saw tons of fish and a few turtles. Lots of beach and snorkel equipment in the condo. The condo is beautiful with a view of the beach and palm trees from the lanai.

This condo was very nice and well appointed. Comfy beds were a plus as beds at other places we have stayed left much to be desired! Pop across the street and you are at one of the best snorkeling beaches on the Big Island. Lots of Sea Turtles! 1 mile north is Magic Sands Beach, where you can enjoy great Boogie Boarding (the surf varies of course), swimming, and sun. Around the corner to the south about 3/4 mile is a shopping center with groceries, restaurants, shops and a movie theater. It was not our goal on this trip to hang out in town. The beach, snorkeling and swimming was our first priority and this place is perfect! Pool and BBQ area was very nice. If I had any complaints at all, it would be the property across the street, the Outrigger. They have some sort of generators or something that regularly ,swoosh! swoosh!, while not bothersome during the day at night it drove me crazy!. simple solution...when making your reservation do take advantage of the a/C. close up the unit at night and you wont hear a thing! Very glad we opted for a/C. Ps The food at the Outrigger in the fancy restaurant was the worst meal I've ever had. Where's Gordon Ramsey when you need him! I hear the food at the Bar/Lounge is good but it was closed when we were there. All in all, we were very pleased with this Unit and will stay here again if we make it back to the Big Island! Please note: The Outrigger is not affiliated with the lovely Beach Villas.

Our stay at the condo was really nice! The lanai overlooks the pool one story down. The condo is very nicely decorated and very comfortable. We found everything in the kitchen we needed. We ate breakfast on the lanai each morning - our only meal there as we were out during the day and evening. The condo is right across the street from Kahalu'u beach that has beautiful sunsets. It can be busy at times, but the water is warm and there are turtles and colorful tropical fish that swim in the area. We really liked our stay - a nice large TV in the living room/kitchen area. 2 nice bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with large showers. The beds were very comfortable. There are full roman shades in the master bedroom so you can sleep comfortably in the dark (but you won't want to too long)! We did a swim with dolphin tour (Sunlight on Water with Captain "China" Mike) - it was great! He would go ahead of the pod so they would come towards us as we snorkeled. We would get on the boat about 5-6 times to keep up with the dolphins. It was amazing! One of the stops - there 2 manta rays which stopped and circled under us. Just loved it! At Keauhou Shopping Center: KTa Super Stores - very nice store - has a great selection of anything you want - wine, cheese, chocolate...and the rest! We ate dinner at Kenichi Pacific at the same shopping center. It was wonderful! I loved everything I ate (sushi)! We visited Humpy's ale House for afternoon beers and appetizers of boiled shrimp and calamari. We went to Island Lava Java for an afternoon Lava Java Shake - had to go back a 2nd time for another shake and dinner - a spicy shrimp and penne pasta - it was really good! I hope to get back to the Big Island soon - and will definitely look to this condo to stay in. Loved it!

Great location! Right across the street from beach and snorkeling. Condo supplied all beach/snorkel gear. Kids loved shallow calm waters to look at fish and crabs. We even saw a few turtles. Kids also enjoyed the pool when they didnt want to get sandy. You can catch the trolley at the Outrigger and go to Kona's Farmers Market and walk around Village. Very convenient spot.

A well equipped condo across the street from a premier snorkeling location for a reasonable price and the easiest check-in process ever? 5 stars across the board. We loved it the same reasons so many others have in other reviews but I would like to add the component of connection to island life. From the lanai (drinking our Kona coffee of course), the school bus came, the park guy with his Hawaiian music station on unlocking the park, the fresh ahi, veggies, and yakisoba I made for a dinner, and the non-tourist restaurants all made for great experience. We are not big-time resort people and this was perfect for us. Much thanks to Chuck and his timely emails! ...Tom

Beautiful, well appointed and very clean unit with a great view of Kahaluu beach. The villa has all the amenities needed for a convenient and comfortable stay. Opting for air-conditioning is a very good idea. Our only issue was that there were a lot of mosquitoes the night we checked in and we got bitten. After an evening and night of running the aC and being extremely careful about not leaving the lanai door open even for a moment, rest of our stay was comfortable. We absolutely enjoyed having breakfast in the lanai (with a fan!) and walking to snorkel at the Kahaluu beach. Location is convenient to explore the Kona region and shop at alii Drive.

The condo "Villa 1-202" was perfect from the start. Chuck was very courteous and was extremely accommodating of our needs (since we were traveling with an infant and toddler).

The interior is absolutely beautiful - very high end bathrooms, a lovely kitchen, great flat screen TV, and an amazing Lanai for dining with views of the pool and ocean. The only snag we ran into was that the pool was closed for renovations. Our only other objection was the hefty cleaning fee because we only stayed two nights, but it was great to have free parking and the rental service was a pleasure to deal with.

This was our 5th visit to The Big Island. We were looking for a place close to Kahaluu Beach so we could snorkel every day at our leisure. Well, being right across the street from it was fantastic! Making the reservation, getting the confirmation and information was very easy and thorough. They made sure a contact name and number was available to us and easy to find in case we had any questions or needed/wanted anything. The Owner had put together a book of restaurants/menues, beaches, activities, services and maps in case you needed additional help in finding your way around the island. We had t.v.s, internet, phones, beach toys and chairs. I think we had it all. The decor of the condo was beautiful, very tasteful. It was extremely clean, bright and beyond welcoming. It had everything we needed in the kitchen to make us feel like we were in our own home. Having a washer and dryer made our stay easier. The bed and furniture were comfortable,the layout perfect, the view was fantastic. The parking lot didn't seem very full and we felt like we had a lot of privacy. There was an outdoor shower to wash off any sand that was brought back from the beach and that helped us keep the condo, bathing suits and beach toys clean. The pool and jacuzzi were refreshing during the day and also a wonderful way to end the day. We liked everything about this condo. We look forward to returning to Hawaii and the Beach Villas at Kahaluu.

First off, Chuck was great to deal with. Super helpful and accomodating. We have been coming to the Island for 25 years now, usually once a year. This is one of the best places we have stayed. It is well equipt, a great location, and has a nice pool. There are nice touches like wireless available (not mentioned in the condo description), and blackout curtains in the bedroom (great for coming from the mainland and jetlagging 4 hours ahead). I cook a lot with local ingredients not available to me in Colorado and this kitchen was pretty well equipt. A better set of knives would be my one suggestion the light cheap ones provided are pretty dangerous cutting the thick Island friut and veggies. I would like if you would have provided a few basic food staples like vinegar, sugar, mustard, ketsup, ect. I have stayed in some places where the stapes are all stored in the refrigerator door with a note to please replace something if you use it up. It was fun to use the items and see what others bought and found useful. It was nice that you provided dish soap. It really peves me when I rent a condo and there is nothing provided in the kitchen so, at least there was soap. The only other small 'problems' I had with the condo was the shower head. Neither my husband or I liked it. Also, the fitted bed sheet was too small for the bed and kept creeping off at night, it was very annoying. All-in-all it was a great stay. We'll keep you on our list of condos to check availbilty on our next visit. Thanks, Mo McKenna.

It is a room that was cleanly and functionally settled though is not wide. The dining table is only Lanai, and the room is a counter of kitchen. Lanai can eat while seeing the tree of the coconut on the beach very comfortably. It is near the beach or more and is convenient though has used next Kahaluu Bay Villas before. The sound of the car is somewhat anxious in the mastering bed room on the road side. Sunset was not able to be seen from the room of the second floor that had been used in the coconut tree.

Some nice extras were provided, such as boogie boards, beach mats, beach chairs, beach towels, etc. The beds were very comfortable. Be aware that only one small set of shampoo and lotion is provided-when it is gone, you must buy your own. It seemed like a funny thing to cheap out on when so much else is provided.

Snorkel equipment can be rented at the beach. As others have mentioned, a car is necessary to get to other beaches, shopping and restaurants, but it's all conveniently located. The unit was exceptionally clean and provided us with all the amenities of a home away from home. The kitchen cabinets were well stocked with dinnerware, glassware, cooking utensils and flatware.

I chose these Beach Villas based on the previous reviews. I thought they were accurate and right on. The condo itself was a two bedroom, two bath unit. We only used one bedroom, but them's the breaks. They were clean. The view was nice (although it did overlook a road, the pictures accurately showed it). And the unit was modern. When we ran out of shampoo, they let them for us. My one warning to folks would be that there is no elevator. If you pack lightly, this isn't a big deal. We didn't so we had to lug our stuff. Still, it was a small thing. I jumped into the pool only once -- who wants a pool when you have a great snorkeling spot across the street? You definitely would want a car if you stayed here. We cooked a lot. Also, I HIGHLY recommend getting the optional air conditioning. Our stay would have been miserable without it. Have fun.

This condo was wonderful - just like the pictures except for one thing...the view of the ocean was better than the pictures suggest! It was a great place to come back to in the evening or to lounge around during the day (including the nice pool). There was lots of beach gear (e.g., towels, cooler, chairs, mats) that made going to the beach more enjoyable. Aside from the good snorkeling beach right across the street, you will need a car to drive to other beaches or in to town. The drive to the Volcano Park took us about 2 hours and it's also a 30 minute drive north to the beaches of Mauna Kea and Hapuna. The condo was a great deal and well-situated to be close to various attractions.

Reviewed by Brenda Vieweg
I found this property through an internet search, google. My husband and four teenagers stayed in one of your condos. 1st, our condo was the "perfect" location. We could not have been more perfectly placed. Georgeous. It is the perfect area for snorkeling. I would have changed a few things. Not having daily maid service convinced my husband and I to only take the children to places "with" daily maid service from now on. Cleaning up after the kids and picking up after my husband was not a vacation for me and was more stressful on my family. We did inquire about maid service and were told that it was not available daily. I wish there had been an outside shower. The beach across the street is out of this world wonderful. And, they have outdoor showers. But, when you walk across the street and up the walk you still have sand and salt in your shoes and beach bag. I hated cleaning up the salt and sand after my kids came up from the beach. I was trying to keep the condo clean. I was lucky that someone had told me about purchasing land's end water shoes prior to our trip. On the Big Island, they are a must have. That tip would be helpful to people, especially since you all don't have a lot of shopping centers. I think that pre-arranged delivery service of fruit/breakfast sandwiches would be something some of your guests would appreciate. They had a sandwich truck on the beach for lunchtime but the food was not very good. Your Island has so much natural, wonderful food I would think that by ordering the night before someone could make a lot of money with deliveries. The only other issue we had was that our flight was delayed the morning we were due to check out and the property manager (via the maid) was not accomodating to allow us to pay to stay in our condo for a few more hours. Instead, we spent our final five hours in HI at the airport. My children still refer to those five hours as the longest of their life. Brenda Vieweg

Public transportation is readily available via a beach bus that will take you to other beaches, or to shop in Kona. Close to a shopping center for all of your basic needs. The condo itself is stylish, comfortable, beautifully maintained, and well-equipped. It was a real pleasure to cook and enjoy a relaxing dinner in the comfort of a lovely home-away-from-home. And the views were magnificent at sunset! The pool area is immaculate, and well planned for use by both children and adults.

This condo was a wonderful alternative to a hotel. The beach across the street was beautiful with outstanding snorkeling! We had two adults and a teenager so it was great to have two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The lanai was one of my favorite parts - we ate several meals out there - watching the ocean and the people at the beach. Sometimes eating out while on vacation gets tiring - it was great being able to cook in the kitchen and enjoy dinner in the condo. If we ever return to Kona we will most definitely come back to the same condo. The feeling of a home away from home was wonderful. Additionally the condo had many fantastic extras - such as some boogie boards, beach towels, dvd's, and guide books. The absolute ONLY complaint I have was the rusty/falling apart rack in the shower. However it seems pretty trivial when compared to all of the great points. I truly hope to return one day!

This condo is just plain awesome. Starting with the interior that is well-decorated, spacious rooms, gorgeous ocean view (dining table is on the ocean-facing lanai). Location is wonderful - great snorkeling just across the road and short drive to anywhere you want. Warning: this condo spoiled me so much that I find it very hard to find vacation rentals for my other trips! The price is right and Chuck is a great person to deal with - he was able to accomodate all my requests. Next time I am on the Big Island I will definitely stay here.

For convenience to Keahou attractions, this is a great location. It really is right across the street from Kahaluu beach, which has the best easily accessible snorkeling on the island. There are amazing archaeological sites a short walk away (including several major heiau now being restored), the hotel across the street has good food, shoreside dining and live entertainment, and you can get surfing lessons just down the street. The condo is large, very clean and modern with a clothes washer and dryer (very convenient), has access to a swimming pool you'll probably never use since the snorkeling is so great, a well-equipped kitchen, a lanai, and little extras like snorkeling gear. I know it sounds like they paid me to say all this, but they didn't and I really loved this place.
