Great location and condo

We spent a week in this condo, and had a great experience. Lots of room, clean and everything that we needed was in the condo. Great lanai with plenty of seating. Wish it had air conditioning like other family members units did, as in mid July it was quite warm inside. Lots of fans to keep the air moving though. Would recommend to others overall.
Very homely, very comfortable, super lanai

This apartment is part of the Wyndham Holiday Resort however it's privately owned. This means you get access to the full resort facilities but hire it direct from the owner at a reduced rate. Win-win!The condo is upstairs (so if you have accessibility issues, this may not be for you - one flight of stairs to access) and is two stories, although only one bedroom is upstairs. We were just a couple but wanted a larger space than a hotel room for this holiday. This condo was perfect. Despite it being three bedrooms and three bathrooms, we only used the master bedroom and ensuite.The bedroom is large with overhead fans. It has plenty of storage to unpack and be comfortable. A large wardrobe, bedside chests and a chest of drawers provide plenty of storage options and means you can get your bags out of the way. The ensuite bathroom has a large walk in shower, a big bath and twin hand basins so there's plenty of room. The bathroom is a bit dated but it's all serviceable and clean.The kitchen is large and has everything you need to cook like you're at home. Big fridge, good over and cooktop, microwave, older dishwasher, big pantry with some basics for cooking like spices, etc. There's no electric kettle but the stovetop one is extremely quick but you need to keep an eye on it obviously. We had breakfast here every morning and many lunches and dinners so it saved us a considerable amount over eating out all the time.The living areas are large and generous. Big dining area and large living room. Both very comfortable. The lighting took us a little while to figure out as they switches are a bit different from Australian ones. But for Aussies, push the knob-like buttons near the kitchen door for overhead lighting in the dining room.But the lanai is the real winner in this house. It's huge and is very well set up with a lovely lounge area. It looks down the fairway and out to sea in the distance. There's a tree right there giving some privacy but also a great view of the local wildlife that live in and around the tree. Lots of birds, lizards and a family of mongoose.The furniture is all island style and a little dated but mostly quite lovely and homey. There's a lot of art by the owners around which is all quite impressive and also a lot of personal family photos, which I thought a little weird for rented accommodation but kind of nice too.The resort itself is quite good. There's a quiet adult pool very close at the bottom of the street and a larger family pool that is always quite busy at the bottom of the resort. This looks out over a fairway to the ocean and also has a bar and restaurant. There's a happy hour at the bar. The bar has just been taken over recently and it's quite good and the cocktails aren't bad. We only had snacks here but they were all good and the service was very friendly and helpful. There are also tennis courts, volleyball courts and of course you can get the time share talk if you so wish.The location isn't too bad either. There's a big shopping centre at the top of the hill with a large supermarket, drug store, a restaurant/bar and specialty shops. I think there's a movie theatre in there too. It's a bit of a drive to Kona and the main run of shops but it's only ten minutes really. There's a beach fairly close by - less than five minutes drive - but they were doing some renovation/restoration to it and the main part was closed when we were there (May 2016).All in all, this was a very comfortable place to stay. Perfect for families or for couples. The resort is great, the apartment has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, including some beach gear and the location is pretty good. Certainly can't complain about the price which was very reasonable and I really loved that we had so much space. I'd definitely stay here again without thinking about it.A couple of things to note though. You need to go to reception to get a card to access the nearby pool. It's free but you can't get in to the pool area without it. Also ask for wi fi access. There's none in the apartment. They will initially give you access to the owners network but not all phones and computers can see hidden networks. Try to set it up while you're in reception and if it doesn't work, they should give you the password for the normal resort wi fi which works very well all over the resort. At the info desk near the big pool, they will also give you a discount card for % off various restaurants and services around Kona. Worth asking for.
DO NOT STAY HERE!

-arrived to a condo UNDER CONSTRUCTION with unfinished work in the master bedroom-PLUMING NOT WORKING and hand written notes were on toilets explaining plumbing issues-MULTIPLE cockroaches including in BEDS! -followed every single detailed cleaning instruction and management had the NERVE to charge my credit card AN ADDITIONAL $50 extra cleaning fee when a $180 fee was included in original payment and EVERY instruction was followed. ****THE FINAL SCAM- charging my credit card for the poor plumbing issue of the condo $281 for Roto Rooter! A maintenance issue that was known and well in existence upon our arrival! We are in disbelief that this management would consider our 6 night stay responsible for the pre existing plumbing issues of the unit. Needles to say, BBB and a dispute with my credit card charge were soon to follow.
As a guest at our condo we appreciate feedback that will help us provide a positive experience to those who stay at our island home.
The two bathrooms on the main floor of the unit do not have plumbing issues. If you had called to let us know that there was a problem, we could have addressed it immediately with no charge to you. You were charged your deposit because of the clean-up necessary from the condition the bathroom was left in upon your departure. There was no maintenance required to the plumbing. We have never had complaints about cockroaches in the beds or anywhere else.
It is our desire to provide a welcoming, clean and comfortable place to stay.

It was perfectly fit for large family members of six. We had 3 couples from young to old, but all the couples satisfied with the room conditions and the atmosphere of the condo. The owner of the condo made the house very comfortable and welcoming for the family guests. Even if the house itself was aged, everything was prepared for the family trip. In the house, there were lots of artworks, drawn by the owner and his wife, so could feel a Hawaiian atmosphere. Anyway, I would like to recommend here for all the future guests.
A Home Run!!

We were in Kona for the 2014 Ironman World Championship. We stayed for 11 days, and had an absolute great time. This unit was more that spacious for the five of us. The location of the condo was great for all kinds of activities (snorkeling, cliff jumping and paddle boarding, etc.). When it appeared we may have to stay an extra day due to Hurricane Ana, Renee could not have been more accommodating. We would definitely stay again!!
Good location on the island & plenty of room.

The location of the condo was great for access to snorkeling and touring the island. Easy drive to/from the airport.
The unit we were in had plenty of space but needed updating. It was clean with plenty of towels, pillows, cooking utensils and extras. The welcome basket with island fruit and flowers was a nice touch.
We would stay there again.

The condo was great for two families, grandparents, adult children with two grandkids. The pools were great for the young family. Our 4-year old grand daughter learned to swim on her back while there! The kitchen left much to be desired, the stove top is in need of some deep cleaning, and one large burner did not work. There was a very nasty cutting board that looked to have been used to cut meat. I wonder how much bacteria lurked in that! We could not get it in the dishwasher, nor did we have bleach for it. It needs to be thrown out. There were many cracked plates that probably were put in the microwave and they were not to be used in that manner. Those dishes I thought were from the 1960's prior to use of microwaves. The beds were comfortable and everyone enjoyed a good nights sleep.
Home away from Home, plenty of space and all you could want.

We loved the apartment as there was plenty of space and a bathroom for each bedroom. It did not have aircon, and it was a little warm at Xmas time. The furnishing are from the '80s but that did not bother us as we were very happy and comfortable. the pool/spa were great and we cooked most nights with very well equipped kitchen. Very clean and tidy apartment in lovely quiet position. No Ocean views just golf course views.

This was our 4th trip to the Big Island, first time in this condo, it will not be our last. 2-203 has everything a family would need. Lots of room, great view of the golf course and very private. The covered lanai was really nice. It rained one day, but we were able to sit outside and still enjoy the view.The one issue is that at around 6:30am most mornings, the groundskeeper would mow the green. We were usually awake at that time so no big problem for us. I think for what you get, this unit is the best value we've seen
Perfect place to relax in a great location!

We had an amazing time staying here! This unit has a wonderful large lanai that is perfect to enjoy the water and golf course views and relax. We spent much of our time out there! The 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms can accomodate a large group or family. The location is perfect and close to many great beaches, shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, golf, tennis, pool, etc. We will definitely be back!
