We had a fantastic first stay in Hawaii and Townhome 177 was just perfect for our family of 3. It was very clean and comfortable and had all the necessities like linens, dish soap, laundry soap and beach gear etc. The list could go on and on. It was so great to be able to sit on the lanai and watch the whales. The pool was nice and close so we could take our 7 year old there without any hassle. The grounds of the complex are beautiful as well. Lush tropical vegetation that provided some shade. The shopping center for groceries was a short drive away (2-3 minutes) and we could have walked to a nice little beach park for snorkelling as well if we wanted. (1-2 minute drive). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to friends and family and would definitely return if we are lucky enough to come back to the big island for another vacation. Dealing with the rental company was easy and hassle free.

Our family stayed at this townhome for our first trip to the big island. It had everything we needed for going to the beaches. Beautiful resort with great pool area. The decor is beautiful and very homey. We really loved having a bath on each floor (the shower dispensers were great). The lanai right on the ocean was such a treat. The only negative was that the surf got high on our last night necessitating closing up the ocean side of the lower level. That high surf was a wonder to behold, however! Absolutely loved the wonderful fruit and treat basket--we enjoyed it all. We didn't take the a/C and didn't need it with the ocean breezes coming through the home and the ceiling fans. We took advantage of the grill that was available for our use to grill some fresh fish we bought at Bite Me Fish Market--yummy! The kitchen was very well equipped. This is a gated resort, so was very secure. If we're ever lucky enough to come to the Big island again, we'll definitely stay here again.

This townhouse is in a great, quiet community right on the ocean (lava rock, no beach). The townhouse was stocked with everything you could need and more. We appreciated the very nice welcome basket on arrival and the use of guidebooks better than ours during our stay. Both bedrooms and a bathroom are upstairs, with another bathroom, the kitchen, dining area, and living room downstairs. There is a lanai that is partially covered and opens onto a lava rock cliff into the ocean. The lanai is not totally private as the 3 other units in this section share the same ocean view area. The only thing we could complain about is the aC is a window unit downstairs so the cool air doesn't reach the bedrooms upstairs. It's not a problem at night since open windows allow the breeze through, but it's warm up there during the day. We didn't use the extra bedroom but it would be a great rental for a family traveling with 1 or 2 children. Overall this was a nice place to stay and we would recommend it.

Condo is well equipment compare to prior units I have stayed in. Location, location...awesome for those not wanting to be right in Kona. Resort is located off ali road, but far enough away you will not here traffic, even if outside enjoying the well groomed landscape. Love being right on the beach with the lava wall in front. Easy walk to the beach and great location for having a rental car and quick access to beautiful coastline of kona. Must be prime location for local snorkeling charters. They stop outside the unit. We saw spinners dolfins almost every morning in front of unit. One day they even swam up close to the lava wall within 15 feet of shore. The master bedroom king is very, very comfortable, a very important item for me with a bad back. Often pay high dollar for a rental and then have a poor bed...not too hard and not too soft, should of look to see if it was one of those high dollar memory foam bed, sure felt like. Owner supplied several good quality masks and snorkels along with beach items including two boogie boards. Use masks but not boards. Needed bring large beach towels, she provides mats for laying on beach plus very good size beach towels. If I return to Kona again, I hope to stay here again, will not even spend the time searching other resorts. Didn't spend anytime at resorts so can't complement on amenties, however gate access easy and tennis courts in excellent condition and well lite at night. Pool is decent size compared to others I have seen at different resorts nearby.

We booked this townhome through Aloha Condos, becuase it provided a very good description and numerous pictures, showing you exactly what you'll be getting. It you want oceanfront, this is as close as you will ever get! The ocean thunders right up to a seawall just a few feet in front of the condo, and at high tide some waves actually cause the condo to shake a little. It is lovely to sit outside on the lanai and watch the water and the sunset -- we ate most of our meals out there. The condo is very well equipped, has everything you would need. We did't use the tennis rackets or the beach equipment, but it was nice to know it was there. The kitchen is small but completely equipped, full size fridge, range and dishwasher. The Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club is very nice, with a large pool and several tennis courts available. We enjoyed the quite, laid back atmosphere.

Tastefully decorated in island decor. Kitchen has all utensils and cooking supplies you need. Condo even included coolers and snorkel equipment to borrow. Master bedroom with louvered windows that provide stunning view of ocean. If we had wanted to play tennis, we could have brought our racquets and walked 10 yards to the court and play for free. Located about a 15 minute drive south of the Kona city center with all the shops and restaurants. No noise from vehicles along Alii drive. The only noise is the crash of the waves against the shore. This was the first half of our honeymoon and we had a marvelous time. Cooked dinner multiple nights in the kitchen and then ate out on the lanai, watching the sun set to the west over the ocean. Condo is clean, comfortable, well-decorated, and well-equipped, not to mention reasonably priced for HAWAII! We couldn't have asked for anything more.

The grounds were well kept, the pool was awesome, the home was clean, the furnishings were in excellent condition and the house was nicely decorated. The house is oceanfront with an awesome view. We had the upstairs master bedroom windows open to help keep us cool at night. With the home being oceanfront it means constant waves crashing against the rocks. This is awesome but also takes some time getting use to if your use to quiet conditions when falling asleep. Probably my least favorite thing about the home is the air conditioning unit. It's in the livingroom with the back half in the lanai. It is noisy but efficient for the downstairs part of the house. We turned it off when using the lanai. This is the second home I have rented in Hawaii with air and both were the same way. The home has fans in every room if the heat/humidity is not an issue for you.

We found out about this condo through Trip Advisor and it was very well rated there and we agree! We really appreciated the fully equipped kitchen and washer/dryer in the unit. The built-in safe in the master bedroom was nice for that sense of security. We also really liked the extra bathroom downstairs, especially for rinsing out and drying swimsuits and snorkel gear inside, without worrying about leaving them outside. We really enjoyed watching multiple sunsets over the crashing waves from the privacy of the back patio. The only downside was that the water was too rough to go swimming, especially with all the sharp rocks. The complex felt very private and secluded, while still being close to town. We walked along the coast to Kahaluu Beach, about half a mile north. It wasn't an easy walk, lots of black lava rock, so we walked back along the road. There were a lot of turtles and fish in the shallow water at Kahaluu and was really good snorkeling. The unit was very comfortable, although it was rather humid, so we should have sprung for the air conditioning, but the ceiling fans and house fan helped. I would definitely go back and stay again.

Can't wait to return! My sister, Mom and I stayed here for four days in February to celebrate Mom's 80th birthday. The condo is spacious, exceptionally clean and beautifully appointed, just a perfect place to relax after our busy days. We saw whales from the lanai every day, and chose not to eat out at all given the view and the full kitchen! The resort grounds are lush and relaxing, and very quiet. Thank you!
Comfort & Location

After visiting all of the islands and staying in multiple hotels, we finally found a place that feels like home. Going to sleep each night to the sound of the surf is sheer bliss in and off itself and the comfy beds just added to the experience. Sitting not 10 feet from the ocean each evening for cocktails while watching the 'green flash' was the icing on the cake. Might I add, the sound of the birds in the morning from the guest room was a daily reminder that we were in paradise. We loved the central location and being w/in walking distance of shopping, farmers markets, excellent snorkeling and the free trolley downtown if we didn't feel like getting in the car and driving. We really appreciated the provided beach toys, towels and coolers and used them almost every day. Although this is a large complex, it felt very private and comfy to us. We loved it, can't way to return again-loved the fact that it was secured.

Highly recommended, the condo is right on the water. When the surf is up you can feel the vibrations of the waves pounding the rocks. The views from the condo are great plus the sunsets are also something to see. My wife and i have stayed in Hawaii several times and this was one of the best condos we stayed in. The cost also was not that expensive compered to booking through Orbitz which i have done in the past for trips to Maui If i was to visit the Big Island again i would make every effort to stay there again
We appreciated the extras

My husband and 2 kids (12 & 9)stayed here in Feb., 2009 for 10 nights. It was very comfortable and we loved hearing the waves at night. In addition to the cooler, beach mats, chairs and boogie board, we really appreciated the dish soap, detergent, shampoo, soap, paper towels, etc. the were also provided. The kitchen was well stocked and I loved the extra spices, etc. that were left. (we also contributed to the stock!) And we also loved the movie and game selection in your condo. We were sad to leave - which is the mark of a great vacation. I would definitely recommend your townhouse!

Our family enjoyed our stay so much. The view of the ocean was spectacular, especially with the sounds of the waves crashing over the rocks. This was our fourth trip to the islands, so we are familiar with the area. The condo was completely furnished with every item you would want or need, including plenty of towels, and kitchen stuff. It was super clean and super comfortable. We would definitely recommend this place. Aloha and mahalo! mlp
