Great location, price, and personable staff
Let me start with saying we enjoyed our stay and have no complaints about the unit. But somethings we did not realize was this unit is small and no real cooking facilities except for a microwave and electric skillet. We usually cook all our meals to keep dining out costs low, so this is a bit of a disappointment. The unit is more of a studio than a one bedroom condo. The bathroom has no sink and the kitchenette sink is tiny for doing dishes. When washing dishes be careful with your water use because the water runs to the back of the counter and can easily get on to the floor. I think it is the slope of the counter top. Also, there is a community grill, but a lot of the tenants use it so the gas runs out quite fast. We couldn't cook our dinner a couple of nights because we cooked later in the evening. So, if you do grill, do it early. Parking is limited so if you aren't in before 7:00 p.m. you might end up looking for on street parking and having to walk a bit back to the complex. Kona offers various farmers market shopping opportunities so do a Google search on what is available. The one nearest to the condo looks a little like a homeless camp and sometimes the product is over-riped and over the years I notice the prices have creeped up quite a bit and the quality is not as good as it used to be. So, do a little homework before you arrive. Again, overall the unit worked well for us and we have no complaints. We enjoyed our time and the coffee shops nearby are great - Island Lava Java and Daylight Cafe are both worth visiting.
