Air Conditioning is optional and you may choose to deselect it; however we strongly recommend that you include it in any reservation between June 1 and October 31.

A $250 security deposit is required with this reservation and we may process a credit card authorization in that amount prior to your arrival.  A charge may result for damage to the condo or contents, missing contents, excessive cleaning required after checkout or for exceeding the maximum number of overnight guests. 

Smoking is strictly prohibited in the condo or on the condo lanai and doing so will result in full loss of security deposit.

No pets of any kind are allowed. 

Check-in time is 3 PM and checkout time is 11 AM.  Please be certain to plan your arrival and departures days accordingly.

This property is situated uniquely very close to the ocean.  During infrequent occurences of very high surf, property management may tempoarily place protective covers over lanai openings limiting the ocean view from the condo and the lanai. 

The reservation deposit is nonrefundable; however if cancellation is made more than 60 days prior to the check-in date, the full reservation deposit may be applied to a new set of reservation dates in the same condo beginning anytime up to one year from the original check-in date (subject to availability).

Cancellation made within 30 days of the check-in date results in loss of all payments.

We cannot begin to tell you how fabulous this condo and resort were. The condo itself had everything one could possibly want or need and we fell asleep each night listening to the waves beating against the rocks. We almost always had a nice breeze so left windows open whenever we were there and never once missed the air conditioning we did not opt for. Our friends were in the same complex but not actually on the ocean and they spent more time at our unit then they did at theirs! We were close to so many of our adventure spots and near a grocery store which worked out great since we definitely used our kitchen! We would not hesitate to stay here again when we go back. This was our first trip to Hawaii and we loved all of it but there is so much more to see. Thank you for a fabulous "first time"!

Our stay at this condo &amp; resort was fantastic. You cannot beat the location of this gated property. The unit provided everything that was needed for a comfortable stay on the island. We felt it was extremely clean and well kept, and slept the four of us with no problem. The pool and tennis courts are just a few feet away from the unit.

This condo location is directly overlooking the ocean waves crashing into the black lava shoreline! The surf was very high upon our arrival and really enjoyed watching the waves crash against the rocks - Exactly as it was pictured. The condo is very roomy and the furniture was comfortable. Really liked the location in respect to downtown Kailua-Kona, the shopping center right up alii drive and all the close attractions. we were able to walk the short distance to the state park for snorkling just a 1/4 north on the road - easy!!

Booking the townhouse was very well organized and instructions to gain access were clear. The condo was very clean and had all the amenities we needed - even some fresh lemons! It was a very quiet location and the pool was just what we needed in the heat of the day. The snorkeling beach just a 10 minute walk away was a great bonus. The many tropical fish and sea turtles were fascinating to watch. The shopping mall was also very convenient. We liked being away from the busy Kailua Kona area too.

We stayed in 178 Jan/Feb 2013. We found the unit to be very old, tired, not updated and suffering from a general lack of maintenance. It should also be pointed out that this unit is so close to the sea that corrosion is a factor caused by the salt water. At times of very high surf all the doors and windows, which are equipped with hatches, are covered up to prevent the sea from damaging the unit. We found Kaleo Lindsay our local contact to be very good in dealing with the numerous issues that we raised most of which he fixed during our stay and others he was continuing to work on. The uni...

Liked the condo and amazing oceanfront view. Found the condo to be very clean and quiet and looked exactly like the photos posted on the website. Very quiet resort, not much going on and only amenities were a pool and tennis courts. Once we had booked our condo at the rate of $149/night, we learned the owner had reduced the price to $109/night for any future rentals. Found this very disappointing.
