My girlfriend and I rented this perfect little condo from Pauline and it had everything we needed for a week exploring the island. We utilized the grill and oceanside patio for cooking and eating in the beautiful sunsets many nights and definitely took advantage of our close proximity to the saltwater pool just a stones throw away. The condo was well equipped with everything we needed for packing lunches and adventuring around including mask/snorkels, beach towels, chairs, etc. We even had sunscreen and other goodies left behind by previous tenents I presume. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a great jumping off spot to explore town and the Big Island. Pauline and her husband were very accommodating and really go the extra mile to ensure a perfect getaway.
My daughter and I had a wonderful 10 night visit to Pauline's lovely condo near Kailua-Kona Village. Well-equipped for beach going, a 1 minute walk to the lovely beach...a perfect spot for sipping your morning Kona while watching the waves crash on the Lava rocks, 1.5 miles from Kailua-Kona Village, and easy access to all parts of the island. The unit is perfect for a couple or two friends. Our hosts were just the best, inviting us to a gorgeous beach to snorkel, then to join them and their weekly canoe club to paddle to a gorgeous coral reef for a swim with manta rays. Magical! I highly recommend this sweet place in beautiful Kona.
