Excellent vacation at the Royal Kahili!
We just returned from a fabulous 16 night stay on the Kona coast. We booked this condo just a couple weeks before our vacation, and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The location is just a few miles south of Kailua Village, right across the street from a small, rocky beach that's popular with local surfers and paddlers. The building and grounds are very well-maintained and comfortable - we really enjoyed the pool and patio areas, which were perfect when you wanted to take it easy or spend some time close to home. The condo was well equipped and very spacious, with plenty of windows and screened doors so you could enjoy the sound of the ocean. In particular, we appreciated the beach towels, beach chairs, and coolers that were provided, and we also made use of the boogie boards and books that were available in the lobby. We used the condo as a "home base" and spent most days out on the road exploring all the island has to offer. In particular, we enjoyed visiting the volcano and the observatories on Mauna Kea - and we found some spectacular beaches north of Kailua (Kua Bay and Mauna Lea were our favourites!) We highly recommend renting a car - we found the weekly rental rates to be very reasonable, and without a car, you're very limited in your ability to get around. Linda (the condo owner) was very helpful when we were booking the condo and making all preparations and payments. She was pleasant and kind, and took the time to walk us through what needed to be done. The condo manager, John, was also very kind and helpful. The VRBO listing and photos accurately reflected the condo amenities and location. Overall, we have no complaints about this rental - we would recommend without hesitation, and would certainly rent this location again on our next vacation to the Big Island!
