We stayed here 15 nights with our kids who are 13 & 15. We LOVED the location. Magic Sands Beach across Alii Drive was so perfect to have just a short walking distance from the condo. It was the first and last place we went most days before any other daily excursions. Great for boogie and body surfing. For strong swimmers there's some cool snorkeling outside the beach area. The condo is only a few miles from the town of Kailua-Kona and many restaurants, grocery stores, department stores, sporting goods stores and best of all farmers markets. There is a great bus/trolley service with a stop right in front of the condo complex but it runs about every two hours so you really have to plan around it. Having a car was important to us. The condo itself was very clean, well equipped and spacious. There are plenty of towels, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment and various other items that you may not care to pack. The lanai was so nice. Never completely in the glaring sun and has a ceiling fan so always a comfortable place to sit. It's huge so room to put out beach gear and still have plenty of room to dine and sit. My son slept out on the linai every night and loved it! When I first made the reservation i was a little concerned the condo was in the back building of this complex - away from the pool and farther walk to the beach. However, after staying there, i wouldn't have wanted to be in the other buildings. This condo was so quiet and really - the walk is not far at all. The owners were very responsive either by phone or email. Highly recommend this condo for your trip to the Big Island!
