Fine for what it is

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 19, 2005

I was only here for a few days, visiting my brother and sister who had rented the condo for a couple of weeks. They had an ocean-side two-bedroom condo on the second floor (which is the first floor of rooms). They rented the condo privately.

The building is old and a little scruffy, but the staff I met were extremely pleasant and very friendly, and the view is gorgeous. Our condo was well-equipped but needed a little fixing up (fridge leaked water, dishwasher door spring was gone), blandly decorated, and clean. The sound of pounding surf at night may be tough for some folks (LOUD!), but it's a sound I really like. Surfers ride the waves out there pretty much all day.

There's a pool and barbecue area, but I can't comment because I never had a look at them. There is parking under the hotel at ground level.

The condo is about a five-minute drive from downtown Kailua, and about a 15-20 minute drive from the airport, on a main drag that is easy to find.

Directions: Just south of the centre of town.

As close to ocean front as it gets

We had an ocean front room on the third floor. Was it really ocean front?

This picture tells all. I stood on a lavarock formation looking back to the back of our hotel. The water was crashing ashore at night not more than 60 feet from the back of the building. That's as close as you can want it. There are more photos in my travelogue.

Here's an interesting story about this place:

We didn't arrive here until after dark. We checked in and went to our room. We knew there was no air conditioning because of the info we had from the hotel's website. The constant cool ocean breeze makes it obsolete. So we knew the windows would be open.

As soon as we opened the door we were met with a strong ocean breeze and the loud roar of crashing surf. It was so loud at first I thought there was a storm brewing. I went onto the balcony to see what I could see. All I saw was a little of the whitewater from the crashing surf in the dim light. Not much else.

It was a little tough the first night to try and sleep with all the noise. But we managed. After all, we wanted oceanfront. AND WE GOT IT!

On the second night, the roar of the surf was not so noticible although I'm sure it was just as loud as the first night. We actually started to like it and slept well.

By the third and forth nights, we didn't want to leave.

Unique Quality:

Directions: It sits on the fringe of all the action in Kona.
