Our family stayed here last month and had a wonderful time, our lanai was about 20 feet to the ocean and we were able to see schools of fish swimming, turtle eating, and dolphins. We even saw some whales! We did a fair amount of cooking at the condo and eating out on the lanai, the sunsets were so amazing that it did not make sense to go out to eat when we had a ring side seat. Town was a short walk so we did walk into town to eat a few times, loved Huggos. I walked to the farmers market almost every morning and bought some great fruit for breakfast. We used the pool a few times, very nice and warm. Next door there is a lagoon that we swam in, a turtle swam with us one morning and that was one of the highlights! The condo itself was very pretty, we had a king bed in the bedroom and a nice TV which we hardly used, the bedroom window was on the ocean so we could hear the waves all night and see the ocean first thing in the morning. The kitchen was great and had things like a blender, coffee bean grinder, microwave, all the things we were looking for. Living room had a flat-screen TV, stereo, DVD player and that was how we went to the lanai, which is where we spent the majority of our time. They had air conditioning, which we did not need, free parking which my husband was happy about (we stayed a few nights on Maui and had to pay for parking) and an elevator. The woman in the office was very helpful, we found fresh flowers in the condo when we arrived, when we stopped by to thank her we found out she grew them herself and we all got to talking about flowers. We made reservations via the 800 number we found in a guide book, the reservation person (Adeline) gave us the web site which I really enjoyed because you can see lots of photos of each condo they have. She also helped us with suggestions on snorkel trips, the Volcano National Park and places to eat. I think anyone looking for a condo should consider Hale Kona Kai, we are already planning a trip back.
