The buildings are almost all built the same with two units above two others and one additional unit to the side. The one bedroom units are split-level. The bedroom is located on the entry level, along with the bathroom and a small storage closet. The living room, dining room and kitchen are on the other level. There is a nice sized lanai or patio with four chairs and a table.
The bedroom has a queen size bed and has a large closet with ample hangars for clothing. It has louvered windows at the floor in addition to the regular window. Along with a ceiling fan, this helps to keep the air cool and moving. The living room and dining room are furnished with island style rattan furniture. The living room also has a neat Murphy bed, which, when down, has a wonderful view of the golf course and ocean. The large sliding door and windows along with more louvered windows low on the wall help the ceiling fan in this room keep things cool. These condos have no air conditioning. The weather on this island--and in this particular location--is generally nice enough that air conditioning is not needed.
Other amenities of the unit include a television and VCR and direct dial telephone in the living room. All calls on the island are considered local, so as long as you don’t call another island or call home to the mainland, there are no telephone charges. The kitchen is compact, but with all full sized appliances, including a dishwasher and microwave. The unit also has a washer and dryer located in a closet in the bathroom.

Kailua Kona, Hawaii
The best beaches are North toward Kona about 30 miles, although the black sand beach, Punaaluu, is very nearby and great for wading and sunning. It is a little too rough down here for swimming safely. There is a natural soak pool at Whittenton Beach, behind the bathhouse, that offers a safe harbor in a natural setting. There are great places to eat in Naalehu and in Volcano, which is about 45 minutes away.

The condo has a view of the golf course that runs along the edge of it. Also, you can see the ocean in the distance.
It is a quiet place to stay. The wind does blow a lot in this area because it's at the southern tip area. This would not be great for families since there is not much nearby and not many kids there. This is a wonderful, quiet place to be together, and great for those who plan to go sightseeing in the Hilo and Kona areas since it's midway between them.
