Great condo with beautiful view
The condo is very spacious and and very well equipped. The view from the balcony is beautiful - great place to watch sunset. There is no AC and the place gets quite hot during the day, but the fans help to cool it down.
— Laurynas, Stayed 07/21/2022
Spacious but needs some updating
Except for a few updating and maintenance issues which are being addressed, the unit is a very spacious corner unit for those Kona breezes, well located, with a beautiful view and well stocked.
— Donna, Stayed 04/19/2022
The condo is very spacious and well stocked! However, no windows were open when we got there and it was very stuffy and smelled. The day to day things like countertops and tabletops looked clean, but the carpets are very dirty as are the windows,... more screens, blinds and fans (and that little shelf thing between the kitchen and dining area). I don't have severe allergies but I sneezed and was stuffy our entire stay from the dust. When you have to lift the dirty blinds, to open the dirty windows so the breeze (which is fantastic) can blow through the dirty screens it doesn't give an impression of cleanliness throughout. Otherwise, I think you have great potential for rentals with this condo, the views were beautiful, it is very spacious, the kitchen is well equipped and the lanai is huge! less

We are sorry to hear that your arrival to our condo was not up to our normal standards. We have a new cleaning service; and we are still making adjustments and communicating requirements. The lanai doors and windows are usually open upon arrival. This issue as well as the blinds have been addressed with our new cleaner. The recent severe storms have created more dust and dirt being brought into the condo. We will contact Kona Coast about cleaning the screens. The carpet has been cleaned. It is vacuumed after each reservation; and stains treated as needed. We hope you will consider a return visit, to our condo, to have the arrival you should have experienced; and enjoy the updated kitchen and new carpeting coming in May. Jeannette and Pete
Very nice condo. Lovely Lani and fully equipped. Enjoyed our stay. Recommend this condo.

Review of Condo
Really enjoyed our stay at the condo it had absolutely everything that we needed except for one thing there was no coffee so it would have been nice I think I left our coffee there I think cuz I had to go buy some but... more most places we stayed in has coffee for at least one morning so that if you don't get out that morning before you go you still got coffee in the morning the other thing is we did not realize it was on the third floor so we did have to go up two staircases short ones to get there from the second floor but my husband's had a stroke and that was quite difficult for him so next time we will have to either stay on the second floor that has a bridge to it or the first floor but other than that everything was fantastic thank you less

Great place to stay
The condo is in a nice complex, with access to 2 pools. Equipped with everything we needed. Would recommend.
— Bin, Stayed 06/23/2021
This is my 4th stay in the condo. The condo is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need for a Hawaiian vacation. The close proximity to shopping and beaches make for very easy navigating. The condo and condo complex are very clean and inviting.... more The quiet pool is just that, QUIET! There are no children at this pool. Makes for a nice, relaxing time at the pool without all the noise and chaos of excited children. I can't say enough good things about the condo and the owners. Fantastic!!!!! less
— Kristi, Stayed 06/18/2021
The condo was spacious with a wonderful lani. Beautiful views of the sunset. Would stay there again.
— Rochelle, Stayed 05/26/2021
Amazing Condo: so spacious and great location
Such an amazing condo, so so spacious and perfect location. King Bed super comfortable. Short walk to shopping center where the KTF supermarket is very good good restaurants there also, but it is very quiet and no disturbance by road traffic at all. The lanai... more is very large and you can watch the sunset from it every evening...the lanai furniture is so comfy. All the little details that made it more special: little beach coolers, lot of beach towels,all the kitchen utensils, zip-locks, cling wrap, ice packs, boogie boards (we used our own), closed garage so the car is cool in the evening... Lot of TV channels, fast internet. It right above one of the pool, and it is nice to walk in the resort and look at the flowers and birds. When we come back to Kona we will book this condo again. We really appreciate the very personable experience we had when reaching out to the owners for questions. less
— Magali, Stayed 04/20/2021
I stay in this condo twice a year. Every stay has been amazing, never any issues and the owners are very attentive to anything that may be needed. I feel very lucky to have found this condo when I did and have enjoyed it for... more several years now. The island is amazing, the accommodations are amazing and you just feel at home. less
— Kristi Wilkinson , Stayed 04/03/2021
1st time to Hawaii
We had an Awesome time! The Condo was perfect and the view was Awesome! Loved having our morning coffee on the lanai and watching the boats sail out. Definitely recommend and will return.
— Renee, Stayed 03/21/2021
Place has amazing views and has plenty of space and is a extremely well stocked unit. It is conveniently located to groceries, great walking, golfing and very close to the “quiet” pool where you can gear the water feature running which is a nice background... more noise. Relatively new living room dining furniture. Cons: unit is aged, no AC and is quite warm in afternoon evening even with 6 fans running. It does cool down to sleep with the fans. At least 1st part of Jan it was warm. Could Use a roller shade in front of sliders to cut down on afternoon sun in unit. Others reviewed King bed as comfortable, I didn’t find it so. The bed could use added supplies to make it more hotel or at least my home - type sleep. All in all the price is about right for the unit. It is less than other units in the Resort area. I’d rent it again. less
— Minda, Stayed 01/14/2021
Let us move in!
Our family of four (two small littles) had the honor of spending a month at this amazing condo. We cried when we left and missed that sunset that we always ran home for each day. The place was is way more spacious and lovely than... more the pictures show, and the resort itself was quite lovely. We got to know the staff and everyone was so great. What's also not mentioned is how perfect the location is! Right in walking distance to the Commons and all the fun, tourist spots like downtown Kona. We really enjoyed exploring more of South Kona and Captain Cook, and Kohala and the resorts and it's beaches are not a far drive either. We can't wait to get back. Thank you for the wonderful stay, Jeannette and Pete! less
— Ann, Stayed 01/07/2021
Luxury Condo at an affordable rate!
We had an absolutely fabulous time during our 3 night stay in your beautiful Condo! We extended our vacation in Hawaii because Thanksgiving was “cancelled” at home due to Covid 19. We had to “scramble” to find a 3 night stay because where we had... more been staying was booked! We were so very pleased to find your lovely Condo for the remainder of our Vacation. Everything we could have possibly needed was provided! Well stocked kitchen, lovely furnishings, very comfy bed and pillows, luxurious shower, enormous Lanai, and the convenience of a great Webber BBQ on the Lanai. Providing Beach “stuff”: cooler on wheels, small personal cooler, towels, and beach chairs a definite plus...as we went to a different beach daily! (BTW… your 2 beach chairs and 1 lounge are pretty tired... useable, but old! the place we stayed prior to your Condo provided Tommy Bahama Costco chairs and umbrella...just a thought!) We will be back! We bragged about your Condo just last night to friends at Home! ❤️ Mahalo! Jolee and Dale less
— Jolee, Stayed 12/04/2020
We went on a badly needed staycation. The complex is totally closed except for a few private condos like this one so social distancing was EASY!! Nearby beaches were open so made good use of the boogie boards. Well-stocked kitchen ready for pancake making and... more stir-frys! Lanai perfect for end-of-day glass of wine with fantabulous view of ocean. less
— Lynn, Stayed 08/20/2020
Beautiful Panoramic View
This condo was very clean and relaxing. The views are amazing, the balcony is perfect! We loved how close it was to everything stores, restaurants and of course the beaches. We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling at Kahalu'u and Keauhou. Good communication from the host. Our... more ohana had a lovely time! less
— Kris, Stayed 08/07/2020
Couldn't Be Happier
This is by far the best condo stay I've had in Kona. I stay here twice a year and each and every time the condo is very clean and well stocked of every day needs. Beach equipment for use is a definite bonus. The condo... more overlooks the ocean and the sunsets from the lanai are absolutely beautiful. I really can't say enough about this condo. It is magnificent!!!!! less
— Kristi, Stayed 01/09/2020
Gorgeous views and excellent community
The location, views, and community cannot be beat! The home is clean, welcoming, and spacious!!! So much room for just two people! The home came with recommendations for the town, adventures and restaurants! Beach chairs, towels... a plenty! We were very happy with all the... more above. I will say, we visited in october and the bedroom was very hot and humid. The living room we were able to have the windows open and fans, but the bedroom was so hot and humid at night time that we couldn't sleep comfortably- even without blankets and with the fans! The lack of air conditioning is understood in hawaii, but for some reason the master bedroom felt unbearably hot. Something to consider. less
— Rachel, Stayed 10/12/2019
We are happy you found our condo inviting; and were able to enjoy the views, recommendations and amenities provided. October is one of the hottest months on the island. The bedroom usually is cool with its Eastern mountain exposure. We will look into solutions to improve the air flow in the bedroom.
Condo was very large, nice and had a great Lanai with perfect ocean view. You couldn't ask for a more well stocked place, you will think you are at home. Block from supermarket and quite a few restaurants.
— Steve, Stayed 07/28/2019
Spacious with large lanai and bathroom
Great views from the spacious lanai. Large condo with lots of space and huge shower. If you aren't used to humidity and heat, this may not be the place for you. No air conditioning, so on a balmy night the windows and fans don't quite... more cool the condo down enough. less
— Karen, Stayed 07/17/2019
Couldn't Be Happier
I could not be happier with my accomodations in this condo. Everything was clean and well maintained. There were a lot of extras in the condo for the traveler. Boogie boards, beach equipment, books, puzzles, even a gift basket upon my arrival. The Lanai was... more absolutely beautiful to sit on for morning coffee and in the evenings after playing at the beach or in the pool all day. I will reserve this again and again. less
— Kristi, Stayed 06/20/2019
Fantastic Home in Paradise
The condo is located in a perfect location; near beaches, near restaurants, tourist activities, and in a resort with “resort” amenities. But the best part is the view. Overlooking palm trees and the ocean. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay and would definitely... more stay there again. less
— Elizabeth, Stayed 05/12/2019
Kona Coast Condo rental, April 2019
We had a great time. Condo was very clean and welcoming. Great balcony to hang out on and enjoy the breeze and the view of the ocean. Beach and several places to eat within walking distance.
— Janice, Stayed 04/15/2019
Spacious Condo in Serene Setting
This condo was everything we wanted and more. It was very clean with comfortable furniture. We loved the view from the lanai where we watched gorgeous sunsets. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare a meal. The different spices were much appreciated. Also, the restaurant... more on site was convenient and offered a good menu. The pools were well-maintained. The location was convenient. It was only minutes away from markets and shopping. We are hoping to return and stay in this condo again. Thank you Pete and Jeannette for going the extra mile to provide a great experience. Also, thank you for the beautiful and delicious fruit basket delivered to welcome us to Kona! Aloha, Terry & Joannne less
— Joanne and Terry, Stayed 04/06/2019
Wonderful time in Kona
A very clean, roomy, comfortable and well stocked condo with an amazing view. Look forward to another visit in the near future. This was our first time in Kona. Kona Coast was a great place to relax!
— Michael B., Stayed 03/05/2019
Another amazing vacation
This home is my favorite place to stay on the island, I keep coming back year after year. I've been watching breathtaking sunsets from lanai every night. I live on that lanai: eat, read, relax. The home is close to town of Kailua-Kona, yet in... more a quiet location, walking distance to the beach with snorkeling, convenient to grocery shopping and all conveniences. I can't wish for anything else. The owners Pete and Jeannette are very kind and quick to respond addressing any questions or concerns right away. Local manager Kaleo is a jewel - he's super nice and helpful. I always feel taken care of in so many ways. Much gratitude for all your love and care! less
— Olga, Stayed 12/29/2018
This was our first experience renting a condo, and we couldn’t have been happier. The unit was spacious and clean. Comfortable bed and furniture. Yes the micro and oven are dated, but they work fine.The fridge is new, with filtered water dispenser and ice maker... more and that is far more important to us. The lanai is huge, with a sunset view that is the best on the property. We loved having our own barbecue. There are multiple fans which combined with the trade winds kept the unit very comfortable. We will definitely be staying here again, dealing with Pete and Jeanette has been such a pleasure. less
— Jim, Stayed 12/28/2018
great condo, loved it!
Aloha! We had a great time in this condo! Everything we needed was there, it was spacious and had the best view! We were there for Ironman and it was perfect. If we ever come back to Big Island, we will absolutely try to stay... more in this same condo! Mahalo! Cornee van Loon The Netherlands less
— Cornee, Stayed 10/24/2018
We enjoyed a weeks stay here in August. The views from the lanai are wonderful and were our favorite part of the condo. We just sat out there enjoying breakfast, lunch, and dinner from the lanai. The condo is exactly as advertised and is clean.... more The kitchen needs updating especially the kitchen sink faucet and microwave, but had everything you need in terms of condiments and amenities. Lots of fans to help keep us cool but we just coincided with a hot weather week for the Kona Coast. The master bedroom is large and the bed comfortable. Really enjoyed our stay and would rent again just for the lanai, but will probably look for a more updated/air conditioned condo for our next trip to the area. less
— Melissa, Stayed 09/11/2018
This condo was in a really good spot for us. Away from the main drag and in between the places we had planned to visit. The condo was clean and well presented. The only thing missing was a kettle to boil water for a cup... more of tea. Never worked out where it was stashed. Not in any obvious place. less
— Marian, Stayed 08/17/2018
We are happy you enjoyed your stay in our condo and on the Big Island. Thank you for bringing the absence of a kettle to our attention. There is now an electric kettle, in the condo. The next time you visit our condo and for our future guests, you will be able to make a proper cup of tea.
Stay a little longer!!
Everything is here! Great resort close to beaches and shopping with use of all the resort facilities. Wonderful condo with a beautiful view. Only regret we couldn't have stayed longer!!
— Bradley, Stayed 07/04/2018
For the price, I was pleased with the condo. Our selection of Kona Coast was due partly to the tennis courts. We were disappointed in the court's plastic surface. Because of the surface, we decided to play at Holua. Still overall, we were pleased with... more the unit itself. Being on the third floor provided a nice view and more importantly a nice breeze. The kitchen was full of dishes that we found useful to our preparing and cooking meals. The gas grill was convenient. The unit was clean. There was enough extra linen and towels for our needs. We called the manager during our first night to request dishwashing detergent for the dishwasher. He came the next morning to get bring some. We were then able to use the dishwasher. I would recommend to others and would rent this unit again in the future. less
— Blake, Stayed 05/15/2018
Thank you for having a "home away from home", as that was exactly what it was. For us, it worked great, all the amenities available at our fingertips. The location of the condo is so close to the shopping center, it was really convenient. We... more enjoyed the view, and although there is no air conditioner, it was really very comfortable. Our two granddaughters enjoyed the use of the pools, thank you for the use of the extra "floaters". We will definitely return when we need another mini vacay! less
— Alfredo , Stayed 11/03/2017
Awesome Stay, highly recommend Kona Resort as a Enjoyment get away. Appreciate your accommodations available at the resort also. Had a Good time! Thank you.
— calvin, Stayed 08/12/2017
Amazing views, great stay, always!
We've stayed in this condo several times and it's never been disappointing. This location is my favorite on the island, as it's low key yet so close to town and beaches. The view and sunsets are spectacular from the lanai, which becomes our dining room... more and most favorite place in the house. The owners Pete and Jeannette are very nice people and easy to reach, and the host Kaleo is very kind and caring. We love top floor location with vaulted ceilings, lots of light and huge rooms. The condo is clean and well-supplied. I can't wait to come back again! Mahalo! Olga less
— Olga, Stayed 06/03/2017
This was our second time staying in Pete and Jeanette's large, lovely and very homey Kona Coast condo unit. The view from the huge Lanai was excellent. Perfect Sunset views are yours just by walking out to the Lanai at the right time. Just a... more brief walk downstairs is the beautiful "Quiet Pool". We made good use of that pool when it got a bit warm. Even though it was warm during our stay, the high location of the apartment allowed the cool breezes to keep it comfortable inside just by opening the entry door and using only the security screen door. Also, the kitchen is equipped with everything, including multiple condiments, needed on a vacation. We plan to return again for sure! less

A Wonderful Month in Kona
We spent the month of February in this very welcoming condo. Had terrific ocean views from the lanai! Condo was tastefully and comfortably furnished. Being above the other condos allowed a very comfortable stay with the breeze through the condo. Easy access to snorkeling down... more the street, farmer market on Saturdays up the hill, whale watching from the lanai contributed to a wonderful visit to the Big Island. Kitchen was well furnished. We found the condo description and photos to be very accurate! less
— Suzanne and Mike, Stayed 04/01/2017
Pete and Jeannette's condo is a fabulous place to stay. The condo is in a fabulous location, and has a personal parking spot. It has a beautiful, large lania for watching the sunset or just for chillin' on. The condo was very clean and had... more everything we needed for cooking and for going on picnics or heading to the beach. Pete and Jeannette answered any queries promptly and were both very helpful and friendly. We definitely want to come back to their condo again:) less
— Cat, Stayed 01/02/2017
Another Great Stay at Unit 1-304
We just concluded another relaxing stay at KCR Unit 1-304. We've stayed in this unit for a number of years. This unit is conveniently located to all of the facilities at KCR we like to use as well as the Keahou Shopping Center for our... more resupply needs ( including Bianellis Pizza!). The unit itself is functional with a great sunset view out of the living room and the lanai. The kitchen is fully equiped. The washer and dryer in the unit work fine as well. Occasionally the warm water takes a bit longer than expected to get up to this top floor unit from the hot water heater in the basement but this really hasn't been a major issue The owners of the unit are great. They are available and responsive to any condo needs or issues that might arise and do so in a timely fashion. We would definitely recommend KCR unit 1-304 for a relaxing , comfortable vacation destination in the Kona area. less
— Mark, Stayed 12/21/2016
This was a great location and the pool was really nice. For mid to late September, the weather was warm and humid and would look at a place with air conditioning next time.
— Sandra, Stayed 10/01/2016
We had a wonderful time on the Big Island, our first time on this island. Your condo was also wonderful, and yes, it surpassed our expectations. We couldn't ask for a better view of the ocean all around us. We enjoyed breakfast a few times... more at the restaurant on the premises, very tropical, great way to start the day! If we decide to come back to this island, we will definitely want to stay in your condo. The kitchen was stocked beyond our needs. The cabinets could use an upgrade, the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. But we truly enjoyed our time in your condo and wish we could have stayed longer...like forever! Mahalo less
— Gary and Brenda , Stayed 08/27/2016
Greast paradise ever
The condo was a way better than I expected. Frankly I had a big concern about accomodation before I depart to Big Island becuase there were not enough information about the Island. However all the concerns was vanished as soon as I arrived there. The... more location of condo was great very near to the calm beach and all quipments are well prepared. Especially the view of the condo was great ever. Me and my 3yrs old daughter enjoyed a private pool just beside our house. All staffs were so kind and we didn't have any problems while we were staying. Definitely I will visit again if I go to Big Island in the future. less
— Miyoung, Stayed 07/11/2016
Home away from home
I found my home away from home! The staff call this place the penthouse when we arrived and we immediately discovered that it was because of the million dollar view! I will be back for sure. Its a very spacious 1 bedroom, nothing fancy but... more it has everything u need . the lenai is spectacular which looks out over first the "quiet pool" , then the rest of the resort (below you) followed by the golf course which is ocean front. I have never been to the big island before but i have been to the islands many times and i have to say i fell in love. Its so relaxing and quiet, Right up the hill is a shopping center that has everything and .8 miles down the street is a cool little beach/reef that has wonderful snorkeling and lifegards. I could go on and on about what a great time we had in the penthouse but it just would make me more depressed because i wish i could wake up in that comfy bed, in 1-304 every morning and sit on the lenai have a cup of kona gold and watch the sunrise. It truely is magical! I was the silent auction winner at a fundraiser for this trip and i have to thank the owners for donating to such a wonderful cause. i took advice from a gentleman that night which i had never met before and he told me to go get that trip....he happened to be the owner . So Mahalo Pete! Im so glad I listened. It was One of my favorite trips ever and i enjoyed every second in the penthouse. 😃 I cant wait until the next time! Aloha less
— Mike , Stayed 07/11/2016
We loved our stay at your condo and chose it online because of the good reviews and attention to detail. Everything one could possibly want was provided for a very comfortable and fun stay. I do believe it was true that it had the best... more view in the resort! less
— Michele & Don Faia, Stayed 06/22/2016
We loved the spacious condo. As an end unit with plenty of Windows we did not need AC. Plenty of breezes & great view. It ia furnished beautifully & well equipped it was great to have a full kitchen & washer & dryer everything we... more needed was there including coolers on the lanai. Handy for day trips to the beech. Being above the quiet pool was wonderful. The Edwards were flexible & accommodating. Going in a low season made the island better for us. No real crowds. Mahalo less

Condo 1-304 Rental - April 5-20,2016
Other than the door lock issue that was promptly fixed, we thoroughly enjoyed our 15 days at your condo. Highlights include the ocean view on the 3rd floor of the building, the well kept grounds and a clean and quiet pool area. I don't think... more we have vacationed in a more fully equiped condo rental. The supermarket and nearby restaurants, a 5-10 minute walk were very convenient. We would recomment this unit to other couples planning on travelling to the Big Island. less
— Dale R Andall, Stayed 05/04/2016
Beautiful View and Roomy
We had a great time. Enjoyed the lanai and the bed was comfy. Very roomy for 2 people. Can't wait to go back!! Suggestions: Bedroom and Kitchen blinds were very dirty - caked with dust and the screens needed a good squirt with the hose.... more Beach chairs were broken and it would have been nice to have some of those around to take to the beach that were the same size and comfortable but that might be something you expect the renters to purchase but then you'd have a mountain of them on the lanai. Refresh the bed pillows and throw away some of the old stained ones stashed away. less
— Michael & Kim, Stayed 03/25/2016
We are glad you had a great time on the Big Island and enjoyed our condo. We make every effort to inspect and replace items used on a regular basis, when we make maintenance visits….towels, dishes and pillows. If something was broken by the prior guest, we may not find out, until conscientious guests, bring it to our attention. We provide beach towels, snorkel gear and beach chairs for our guests to enjoy. We are working with our local contact to remove the pillows and broken beach chairs. Kona Coast Resort maintains the outside screens. We will contact them about the cleaning schedule. We look forward to your return visit. Jeannette and Pete
Our favorite place in Kona!
We keep coming back to this wonderful home year after year. We practically live on lanai with great ocean views. Everything is this home is comfortable and ready for enjoyment, not a single detail or convenience is overlooked. Love vaulted ceilings and huge bathroom. we... more truly feel at home there. less

Excellent home away from home
This condo had all the amenities that made our stay absolutely fabulous. The view from the lanaii is outstanding. The location is convenient from shopping to beaches to pickleball. The complex is quiet and everyone was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend it and... more would stay there again. less

Organized and Equipped
We enjoyed the condo for two weeks at Christmas 2015. It was organized, well equipped and so comfortable for my husband and me to unwind after a busy year. We enjoyed the local restaurants and great shopping nearby and places to walk. We enjoyed the... more spacious condo to just relax. A great experience and wonderful vacation. Can't wait to come back! less

Another Great Stay
We've had the pleasure of staying at this unit more than 6 times over the past few years.. We really enjoy the layout of the unit and the close proximity to the pool. The view and the breezes from the upper unit make this a... more real beauty. The complex itself is relatively quiet and relaxed. Guests and owners are friendly . Security staff are always present during the day and make the rounds during the evening. We've never had any issues with feeling the least bit unsafe . The location of the complex at the end of Ali'i Dr make it close to shopping, snorkeling and surf, All in all a great experience less

Great Condo for your Kona Vacation!
Enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo in Kona. It was spacious, had a lovely view and all the necessities to make our two nights stay an enjoyable one. Was just wondering why there was a no parking marking in front of the unit's garage.... more As we preferred not to park our vehicle in the unit's garage (due to the necessity of using the code box), we had to park our vehicle in the 3 parking stalls available in the area. We were fortunate to find an available stall during our return from shopping, sightseeing and other trips. Nevertheless, we definitely recommend this unit for your vacation needs! less
— Earl, Stayed 11/14/2015
We’re glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo. Kona Coast Resort does not allow parking in front of our garage, because the car would block access to the path located next to it. Security uses the path when they are patrolling the grounds, in their carts. Since the garage is a shorter walking distance to the condo than the parking stalls, we provide access, to the garage, for our guests.
Fantastic accommodation. The fruit basket was gratefully received and a lovely idea. The condo was spacious, beautifully appointed and every consideration to our comforts and needs was addressed. the large lanai was well used by us and the view fabulous. Great having the "quiet" pool... more just below us too. Loved the geckos too.We felt we were able to relax and enjoy staying in a home away from home. And finally the price was unbelievable. Thanks. Can't recommend this highly enough. less
— Sue Andrew, Stayed 11/07/2015
The apartment is beautiful, very well equipped ( although the microwave is an antique). There were many left over supplies, e.g. oil, spices, etc. and the owners thoughtfully welcomed us with fruits and snacks. Location is very good too, close to Kahalu'u park (great snorkeling),... more and a large supermarket. We had a bit of problem finding the place, the directions could have been better. But once found it we really liked the place. The view was lovely too. The one negative thing was the lack of AC. The apartment faces west, so the afternoon sun can be very strong. When the sea breezes are on it is OK, but we had two very warm days in our Sept 30 to Oct 4 stay when the breeze was almost non existent and we really missed a bit of AC. We would have used it only for a few hours. At night it is really not needed. We will probably come again but better in late October or in November A minor other complaint: I do not see why we had to strip the beddings. There is a large cleaning fee, we should not have to prepare or do the laundry. less
— Andrew , Stayed 10/10/2015
It is only missing the ocean
The condo is very nice and homey. It appears spacious and has a nice layout. It is very clean and the welcome fruit basket was very much appreciated. The bed was comfortable. The view from the lanai is beautiful. The walk in shower was beautiful... more and again like the rest of the condo was very clean. Unfortunately the resort does not really have true beach access. (Or at least not that I could find.) The surrounding grounds at the resort are beautiful. The weather during my stay was unseasonably warm and humid, which did make the days a bit uncomfortable but the nights cooled reasonably and the large number of windows and presence of breeze made it more comfortable to sleep. I would definitely consider staying at this location again! less

Love this place,great view
We stay at the kona coast every year. It is a beautiful place. The condo was wonderful. It has the best view we have ever have staying at kona coast. The condo was stocked with everything you need. It is clean and comfortable. We felt... more right at home. The location is right above the quiet pool and easy to get too. We loved staying here and would stay again. The condo is close to so many things. It is a short walk to the grocery store and our favorite coffee shop. Our favorite beach is 2 miles down the road. less

Perfect place to stay
Great condo the views are spectacular from the whales jumping & blows to the beautiful sunsets. The condo has everything you could need and is very comfortable and the directions for access and departing is very easy to follow.
— Darla N, Stayed 03/22/2015
The condo has everything you need to relax and it is close to a main road as well as a close drive to the more touristy area. The kitchen is well stocked and the shower and bathroom are both large. The living room and dinning... more room are a good size and give you a perfect view. The lanai is also very large and there is a gas grill along with chairs and a table. The view is out of this world and there is nothing better than sitting outside on the third floor enjoying the breeze and beautiful sunset. less
— Oscar O, Stayed 02/26/2015
Spacious; decent view
The unit was clean and comfortable. There was a living room, dining room and nealy as much space as both on the lani which is living space in Hawaii. The overall complex was well maintained and the front office folks very nice. The owners were... more very responsive to a minor problem with the hot water. Some of the appliances were a bit dated but they worked which is what counts. Considering the rental rate, the unit was a bargain. less

Huge One Bedroom Condo in Great Location
Just got back from one week in Kona staying at Peter and Jeanette's condo at Kona Coast Resort. The condo is massive for a 1 bedroom and has fantastic ocean views. Disagree with previous post- kitchen was spotless. Microwave could have been prototype for first... more microwave available to consumers, but still worked well. In fact did not see any cockroaches or those tiny ants entire time of stay. We have seen them many times while staying in 5 star resorts on the Big Island. Wifi was very fast. Condo does not have A/C, but did not find this problem in evenings with cool mountain breeze coming in screen windows. Nice fruit and chocolate basket on check in was nice touch. Lanai is absolutely massive, and overlooks the quiet pool. Owners very friendly to deal with. Would highly recommend this condo. less

Great location, dirty kitchen
I enjoyed my stay here, but spent most of my time off the resort or on the lanai enjoying the sunsets. However, we were quite disappointed with the condition of the kitchen (the rest of the place is fine, except for very dusty blinds and... more fans). The dishes were not at all clean. There was food stuck on the plates and bowls, and the cups were extremely dirty. We spent most of the first night cleaning dishes before we were able to eat. The dishwasher door is so filthy, I was able to write "wash me" in the soapy/greasy film. The fridge door, particularly in and below the water dispenser, have not been wiped down in weeks if not months. Additionally, the blender was completely broken and the blades did not spin at all. After complaining to the owners (almost word for word what is above, different verb tense), the blender was replaced and the dishwasher had been wiped, but still wasn't really clean. Otherwise, the bed is quite old and sags in the middle. The living room furnishings are ok. The giant walk-in shower is probably the best feature inside the house, it was really nice, big and clean. The kitchen is quite dated and as mentioned above the dishes were very dirty. Although we saw none inside the condo, the resort in general has a cockroach problem. We saw them frequently on the lanai and the parking garage. There's also a whole bunch of anoles and geckos, but I don't mind those at all, they're pretty cute. Overall, the place just needs a head to toe cleaning, and a reorganization of cupboard/drawer contents. The patio is very nice, and the location is excellent for quick snorkel / beach trips, and the grocery store is right beside the resort. Would definitely stay in this area again, but just not at this particular condo. less

We are sorry this guest did not have the positive “Aloha” experience that our prior guests have had. We were unaware that the dishwasher was not performing a proper cleaning prior to her arrival. A new dishwasher has been installed. All blinds have been cleaned again; and floor fans cleaned or replaced. When we were informed the blender had broken, it was replaced within 24 hours. This guest stated they were happy with the quick response; and were enjoying the tropical drinks they were making from the new blender. The kitchen is original and organized to coincide with the flow of the kitchen and location of appliances. This is the first negative comment we have had about the bed. Prior guests have commented how comfortable the bed was. The living room and dining room furnishings are the typical bamboo tropical theme that are in most Hawaiian condos. We have brought the pest sightings to the attention of the resort, so they can schedule additional sprayings. We, as well as our cleaner, Kaleo, take great pride in the upkeep and cleanliness of our condo. As stated in other reviews, our condo provides many amenities and the comforts of home. We strive very hard to ensure all our guests enjoy their stay in our condo. Aloha, Pete and Jeannette, Owners, Kona Coast Resort, Condo 1-304
Fantastic place to stay on Kona side of big island.
The unit was very large & roomy. It has a 180 degree of the ocean, as it is up near the top of the property. The "quiet" pool is located just below our unit. Balcony overlooks pool to the left. Condo stocked with Toys like... more boogy boards & snorkels. Lots of spices and condiments, tea bags, coffee filters, etc. we picked unit not by reading reviews, by by using "aloha condos. Com"; which I ready knew to be good. Then we looked at room pictures for the part of island we wanted to stay. Then it was a matter of price and amenities as shown in Alohacondos video.

Perfect location/condo for a Hawaii vacation!
We wanted a condo in a relatively quiet location in Kona, yet close enough to the Honokohou Marina for our morning diving trips. Unit I-304 truly exceeded our expectations! Upon our arrival, we were pleasantly surprised by the large welcome basket full of Hawaiian fruits... more and snacks! The unit is a very large one located on the top floor directly above one of the pools, and offers a view of the ocean and sunsets on one side, and the mountains on the other. Pete and Jeanette are wonderful to work with, and definitely take pride in their paradise property! Thanks - we will be back! less
— cindybr, Stayed 08/27/2014
Just my style
This was our second year staying in 1-304. The same as last year, great condo, great location and the resort has something for everyone. We especially love the tranquil pool and the laid back quiet of the users (for the most part). Pete and Jeannette... more are delightful to work with and I am so thankful to them for sharing their little part of paradise with us. For a very adult experience, this is the condo for you!

A beautiful place to relax!
We spent a delightful 6 nights in 1-304. We had spent a very busy week before on Maui so were looking for a quiet place to relax. The deck with a view of palm trees and the ocean was perfect. This might be the best... more place on the island to watch the sunset. The condo was very well equipped. We picked up groceries up the hill, cooked and enjoyed our meals on the deck. We met friends for drinks the the Kona Coast Resort restaurant. There was excellent live entertainment every night. Thanks for a great home base for our Hawaiian vacation. less

Kona Coast 1-304 stay
Wonderful stay in this resort unit that is privately owned. Great ocean and sunset views, good amenities, great location in Kona.
— microalien, Stayed 05/15/2014
We enjoyed the expansive view and convenient, peaceful, spaciou
We loved the quiet location within the complex, the wonderful view of the ocean and the availability of a garage. The condo was very spacious. We were right by the "quiet pool and hot tub". The complex has another larger pool with restaurant. The unit... more does not have an air conditioner, but the breeze cools things down nicely in the evening and at night. Everything one needs is available in the condo and we would recommend it to our friends. Helpful notebooks about the condo and area were provided. Living room chairs not too comfortable, but the king size bed very comfortable for a good nights sleep. less
— Donna, Stayed 05/08/2014
Truly home away from home!
We couldn't have been more impressed with the quality and cleanliness of this unit and of the entire resort. It has everything you could ask for and more. I didn't see a single thing that looked old or run-down. Fantastic view of the ocean and... more sunset (it appears most of the units at the resort have little to no view.) Top floor so no chance of hearing anyone walking around above you. One of the pools is directly below the unit. Very nice shopping center just across the street with restaurants and a good movie theater. We would not hesitate to recommend this unit to anyone, glad we found it! (by agreeing to listen to a timeshare sales presentation we saved $200 on zip lining at Hilo.) less

It doesn't get much better than this!!!
This was our second time staying at the condo and it was fabulous. we liked the addition of the lanai cover, as it was raining a few times during our stay. gorgeous sunsets every night!

Great introduction to Hawaii!
We stayed for 7 nights in Nov and had a great time. It was our first time in Hawaii, and we weren't sure what to expect, but we loved it. The apartment, although a bit dated, is huge! Although only 2 of us, it was... more great having the room to spread out. The condo is super close to one of the two pools in the resort (the 'quiet' pool) and we never had a problem getting a sun lounger whilst we were there - although I imagine it may get really packed during holidays. The condo had beach towels, chairs, boogie boards etc, which was fantastic as we didn't have to buy anything. It is less than a 10 minute walk to supermarket/cinemas, about 15 min walk to the beach, and there is a shuttle that runs (not very regularly) to Kona - however, if you are coming to the Big Island, we would recommend you get a car. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends. less
— Felicity, Stayed 12/30/2013
Great condo,great views,great stay!
My husband and I had a wonderful time during our stay. The condo is very well equiped with everything one would need. It is very large and spacious. The balcony was glorious with great views of the ocean where we could enjoy our morning coffee... more and our evening nightcaps! The reservation went very smooth from begining to end. It was great having the pool nice and close. We would have no hesitation on renting here again. less

Great value and close to town
Very clean and bright condo, with plenty of room for the two of us. The lanai that runs across the back was huge with a lovely ocean view and I wish we had had more time to relax on it. It's about five or six... more miles into town so we rented a car, and there was ample parking at the condo. Would recommend to a friend, and if we come back, I'd look to stay here again. less

Amazing stay at this beautiful Condo
Everything you want, in this very well appointed condo, they really have thought of everything. It is immaculate. With views to die for. With a supermarket a short stroll we stocked up our fridge with great salads and snacks. After walking around the golf course... more and dramatic coastline, we would return to the balcony (the biggest I have ever had for a condo) and gaze at the sea whilst enjoying a healthy breakfast. Sunbathing on the very private balcony, and taking a dip in the pool which is just below the condo and is very quiet, with sun beds. In the evenings a BBQ on the balcony. Or a short drive to the quaint and interesting bustling town. With breathtaking sunsets. Lots of great bars and restaurants with live music and fabulous food, a mix of american style with all the choices and some Ethnic styles as well. We loved this very relaxed holiday. The airy condo, the views and location cannot be beaten! Can't wait to return less

We were impressed at how clean this condo is. It is very spacious and was fully loaded. We didn't need to buy any supplies because this place had it all. We were greeted with a nice basket of goodies. The owner was very responsive to... more any questions we had. The bathroom was so spacious and modernized that my ten year old said it was one thing she would miss about the place. To me having a nice bathroom at my vacation lodging is very important. My husband and I couldn't be more impressed. The condo pool was clean. I liked that it had free wifi and it had 2 fitness gyms I could use. One had a universal machine which was important for a gym rat like me. No free weights but good enough. The deck had a gas grill that had everything you need to bbq. All our meals were eaten at the patio. Loveed that washer and dryer was in the unit. I dodnt i went home with clean clothes! Overall very happy and would return to this condo again. less

My little corner of heaven on the Big Island
I loved the condo and really enjoyed watching the sunsets from the deck. The pool was right below the suite so I spent a lot of time there. After the initial chaos at check in (there was no one at the gate to give direction... more and the porch light was not left on so it was impossible to punch in the key code in order to get the keys), any problems or issues were dealt with very quickly. The condo was very large and comfortable and friends that were staying elsewhere were very envious of my lodgings. I was frightened by a very large cockroach in the kitchen but we made a gentleman's agreement to stay out of each other's way and we both followed through. Will definitely look at staying in this suite again!! less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 03/28/2013
It truly is a corner of heaven to sit on the lanai and watch the sunsets! We want each of our guests to feel “Welcome” when they arrive at our condo. This includes the porch light being on for our late arrival guests. We apologize that this isolated incident occurred. Security rotate their time from manning the gate in the morning to patrolling the grounds the remainder of the time. With this in mind, we provide each guest with detailed instructions on how to get to our condo. We have never had any report, from prior guests, of any “critters” visiting the condo. Since our condo is located in the tropics, the grounds and buildings are sprayed on a regular basis. We take pride in the cleanliness of our condo. We’re pleased your friends were able to enjoy the view and your spacious accommodations during your stay in our condo. We look forward to you staying in our condo in the future.

Honestly the pictures don't do it justice- the view when you walk in will bring a huge smile to your face :)... The one bedroom is a Villa so its a lot larger than you expect it to be- and the lanai is amazing! ...... more Everything about the condo was excellent- starting with the yummy gift basket waiting for you when you walk in, the place is kept up very nice/ very clean, all the extras they have already there make your vacation even better: fully stocked with hats/beach towel/ boogie boards/ chairs/ etc... everything you need for a great day at the beach :) Hot tub right below was a perfect way to end every day!... we will for sure be coming back!!! ... the owners are super sweet and accomodating- even calling us to check in and make sure everything was going well!!!... really awesome rental! less

Another fine vacation
We have visited the Big Island many times and have honed in on the Kona Coast Resort as our favorite place to stay. For the two of us, unit 1-304 is just right. It is up high enough to catch pleasant breezes and great views... more over the ocean. There is occasional street noise from alii Drive, but we never find it a problem. Both the resort grounds and condo are very well managed with plenty of amenities. We particularly like the location -- it's an easy drive to the restaurants and shopping in Kailua-Kona, and a very pleasant walk over to the harbor at Keauhou Bay (we stroll over in the morning when the lighting is right and there is plenty of activity in the harbor). We never tire of the great diversity of scenery the Big Island offers -- lava flows, sea creatures, mountains, beaches, rain forests, waterfalls, and great sunsets. less

We just had a fabulous vacation in this condo. It is really well situated within the resort and close to all ameninies.

We couldn't be happier and highly recommend this unit. less

Beautiful ocean view, large balcony, spacious
Highly recommend! Very convenient location to stores and attractions. Owners great to work with. They are very organized and were kind enough to mail back to me a small item that I left in the condo. Condo unit is located above a "quiet" pool. Noise... more was not a problem for us. My favorite part was the expansive ocean view at sunset. less

If your looking for a great condo to call home for a week or two you can't beat it for location, view, and price. Very comfortable and well equipped (albeit a little dated). The condo had everything we needed to enjoy our time both in... more and out of the condo. The lanai is fabulous and with your own bbq its fantastic if you want to grill a fresh piece of Ono for dinner!! Jeanette and Pete are wonderful people and were extremely accomodating to some of our requestes and questions that we had. Highly recommended and would stay again in a heartbeat! less

Great condo with million-dollar-view!!!
This condo has a spectacular ocean view that you normally would have to pay lots of $$$ for. This is my third trip to Kona and I am glad to have stayed here. My previous trips costed me much more $ from staying at the... more hotels without this much of comforts. This condo has everything I need to make my vacation a great one: quiet location, close to shoppings and highway, minutes from my favorite snorkeling beach, full-equipted kitchen so I saved a lot of $ from not eating out, boards for boogie boarding, beach chairs and umbrella, internet access, and mostly the big space that my son can roam a round. For my next visits I will definitely use this condo again. less

Excellent condo in a great location. Fully stocked with everything you need for vacation, we would with 100% confidence recommend this condo to friends and family.

Kitchen had everything you would need to make any meal you desire on vacation and the gas grill on the lanai was great. Views from the lanai were awesome, see could see and hear rowers on the ocean chanting row, row, row each morning. Truly a home away from home. less

Exceptional! Beyond our expectations...
Aloha, Once we opened the door to the Edwards condo (Unit 1-304), we were immediately struck by the breath taking view of the ocean. The lanai had a million dollar view and we stayed and had our breakfast there most of the time. The condo... more was very spacious, quiet, clean and had a big open floor plan with vaulted ceilings. Having all the basic necessities was a plus and made our stay very comfortable. We love the little touches like the snorkels and floaters, from saran wraps/ foils and coffee filters. to the pots and pans in the kitchen. As well as the excellent amenities such as the pool and hot tub that are conveniently located just right down the unit. We also enjoyed the complimentary gas grillers in every corner of the complex. This place was like home for us away from home. We highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a quality condo style stay. We'll definitely come back and refer friends and family to stay here. less
— Clariza and Eddie, Stayed 04/07/2012
The condo was very lovely, in great condition, clean, and decorated tastefully - loved the quiet and of course the views - loved having grandsons visit and use the family pool, eat at pool restaurant, etc. Restaurant staff very friendly, though one of the bartenders... more happens to be my son-in-law, so there may be a bit of favoritism here!! less

Great Stay and best value on the Island
We stayed at Condo 1-304 for a week. First the owners are easy to work with and upon arrival everything promised was there. Great views, clean room and a great rate. The unit has a breeze coming through and we had the porch sliders open... more and to sleep every night with a cool natural breeze was great. Location is good and you could get to Kona town in a few minutes. Highly recommend this unit for someone looking for comfort, views and value. With all the money I saved, I spend it on activities like golf. Planning to come back. less

A wonderful place with a great view
We flew into the airport, rented a car, and took a half hour drive to the resort. There is a security guard at the gate and he was friendly and professional. We stepped through the front door of our condo, and we felt like we... more were home. There was a fruit basket waiting for us with island fruits and cookies. The view of the ocean and the wonderfully furnished living/dinning room was a surprise. Every detail was set up for our comfort. The bed was more comfortable than any of the hotel or timeshare beds we have slept in. Every amenity for enjoying your stay is there, including beach hats and chairs, beach toys, stereo and flat screen television, wi fi, and every possible kitchen appliance and tool that you would need. The lanai has a bbq and comfortable furniture. We hardly left the place. It is a great place to kick back and relax. The condo has a very large lanai that looks down to the quiet pool. There is a spectacular view of the ocean looking over red tile roofs of the resort. The view of the mountains in back of the condo is also beautiful. We did not notice any street noise. The condo is a very short walk to the rocks and ocean front, a restaurant on site and a second pool area. There is a half mile easy walk to a sandy beach. There is a large and well equipped market two blocks away and at least five restaurants in that center. We will stay here often, and we expect to return in the fall of 2011. less

Comfortable Stay/ Great Lanai
We stayed at this unit for 10 days in January 2011. We found the unit clean and welcoming when we arrived late the first night. The front door was a bit tricky to open initially but no problem once you got the hang of it.... more The location of the unit was great both in relation to downtown Kona and to access the main road north or south on the Big Island . We found the bed very comfortable and the bedroom clean/not fancy, in general. The bathroom was also clean , the shower huge and all the towels and linens available as promised. We did have a small problem with the toilet cistern not filling after flushing, 3/4 of the way through our stay . We notified the owners who responded immediately to us regarding our problem. We were satisfied with their responsiveness. The "clinching" reason we will return is the absolutely amazing lanai with lanai doors that open to that great Kona coast breeze . To sum it up, the unit/complex is not brand new but tidy and fairly well cared for in general. The owners were responsive. The lanai was great! I would recommend the unit to friends. less
— Mark, Stayed 02/25/2011
A view to die for and all the amenities of home.
The view in this condo is really special. Some days we just stayed in, sat on the lanai, swam in the pool, relaxed and enjoyed the view. The lanai is large and you feel as if you are on top of the world. Pretty much... more everything you need is there, a well stocked kitchen, beach towels, hats for the beach, a DVD player with Dvds and even a cooler to pack lunch on those days you want to explore. The location is within walking distance of a theater, restaurant, grocery and other shopping. The unit is older, but the price reflects that. One negative is the traffic on alii drive can by noisy so we needed to keep the bedroom windows closed. There are plenty of fans to keep you cool. We hated to leave! less
— Deb, Stayed 02/13/2011
The Edwards condo in the Kona Coast Resort is ideally situated above the adult quiet pool with the lanai facing west toward the ocean. It is a 3rd floor condo but the way the building is laid out, only requires that you walk up 1... more set of stairs to get to there. You can watch the sunset from the lanai and take beautiful pictures from there. The interior is very nicely laid out and beautifully decorated with island themed lamps and wall hangings. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped. The bedroom is very large with plenty of storage space and is very quiet for sleeping. The bathroom is huge with a very large shower and double vanity. The living and dining room span the entire west side with sliding doors the whole way opening to the lanai. Very comfortable furniture - the lounge chair is especially cozy! The lanai has a nice large dining table and we found that we never ate indoors because the weather was perfect for all meals outside on the lanai. The unit ha d wireless internet so we were both able to work and stay connected with friends and family through Skype. The east/west/north windows and doors along with fans in the bedroom, living room and dining room kept a constant fresh breeze moving through and eliminated any need for air conditioning. We had one maintenance issue that was immediately handled by the Edwards' on island manager alan Wilson. The Edwards followed up to make sure the issue was addressed to our satisfaction ensuring that in the unlikely event anything does go wrong, it is fixed right away without impacting their guests in any way. Well done! This is a truly wonderful unit in an excellent property. I would highly recommend this unit for anyone planning a trip to the Big Island. less

Very nicely appointed, conscientious...felt very welcome
Our large lanai spread out across the entire front of our unit with ample space for dining, lounging and gasping at the incredible sun setting over the Pacific and behind the palm trees surrounding the condos. 3rd Floor top unit (but only one flight of... more stairs from the lot behind) gave us a wide expanse of ocean...about 500 yds distant past a golf course surrounding the complex. Sandy beaches are just down alii drive with gentle coves for snorkeling, lifeguards, bath house, shower, family style beach location..more adventuresome waters are not far away either. A basket of fresh fruit was waiting when we arrived..this unit was by far the best, Many bath towels and assorted goodies, beach towels, snorkeling gear, sun lotion, kitchen touches like cooking spices, foil, baggies, a beach bag, hair dryer, and just dozens of little things that you often forget to bring. Dishwasher with soap, disposal, microwave, refrig with ice maker & water in the door, laundry with supplies off kitchen, plenty of closets extra hangers, many dishes pots and pans, cooler for beach, you get the idea. Huge shower, two bathroom sinks...very nice bed, two TVs, dvd, video, wireless in the unit, nice "quiet" pool below for adult relaxation...larger "splash" pool for families was down by the restaurant and offices. Tennis courts. Nearby supermarket, drug store, pizza place, sports bar, sub shop, movie theater...this was just an ideal location...very friendly workers and folks staffing the entry gate. Local handyman zipped right over when we had a minor problem...very conscientious feeling about the place. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 02/04/2011
A pleasant enough place, but too many glitches made this a frustrating stay, especially travelling with a child.The unit's owner was kindly receptive to my complaints, and notified the handy man immediately. Points for that...But, between the door knob lock and stuck key,(even security had... more problems opening the door) the toilet tank malfunction (from day one), and the terribly stained bed pillows (which I discovered after stripping the bed upon leaving...) I would not recommend this unit. The bedroom is also very noisy at night from car traffic on alii Drive. My fault for not researching that point more. less
— Idaho traveller, Stayed 01/31/2011
We were surprised to read that our guest considered her stay in our condo frustrating. Our front door is a heavy door with a simple lock and key entry. Our local contact makes sure all keys function properly before each guest arrives. Our local contact made several trips during this guest’s stay to ensure the key and lock were working at all times. Each time the key and lock worked properly. The guts of the toilet were replaced a few months ago. There have been a couple of issues with the installation which have been promptly dealt with. We were unaware there was an issue with the bed pillows. All bed pillows have been replaced. Our condo is located at the highest point in the resort, but far enough away from Alii Drive to avoid noise from car traffic. Our condo is a spacious, well kept and updated condo with panoramic ocean views. Our cleaning crew does an excellent job keeping the condo clean and fresh for each guest. We do our best to make sure everything is in working order upon their arrival. Our goal is for our guests to have an enjoyable time in our condo with the desire to plan a return visit.
