WOW,talk about Hawaii on your own terms ,what a perfect condo,if you gave me a sheet of paper and told me to write down everything I would want in a condo this would be it,ocean view from the living room, ocean view from the master bedroom ,there's even an ocean view from the master bedroom shower,the fact that you can cook your own meals while you swim in the pool and watch the sunset is priceless, the town of Kona is awsome and only a 3 minute drive,if you need any local info (beaches,grocery stores,etc.ask John the manager he's always happy to help,one morning we saw him out front and he gave us some payapa and banana grown right on the property.If your looking for crowded pricey trumped up resorts look elsewhere, but if you want a slice of Old Hawaii on your terms go to the Smiths condo,thanks Kevin and Cindy our stay was magical.

Awesome location, Beautiful Condo! We loved the condo's location, it was a short drive into downtown and minutes from beaches. I also loved having the washer/dryer in unit definitely a plus. It was so nice to just hang out by the pool and BBQ it is a very quiet complex which I liked. I loved all the decor and cleanliness it made it very comfy and cozy. Would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much :)

Kona 2012 During our stay at the Royal Kahili, we enjoyed relaxing on the Lanai while drinking our morning cup of coffee, and watching the beautiful ocean. The condo's location was in a prime spot. It was only a short drive from town and not far from local beaches. The condo itself was very clean and updated. We especially loved being able to do our laundry due to the washer/dryer on site (in the condo). The pool area was also very clean and enjoyable. It had all the amenities needed such as a BBQ Grill, refrigerator, outdoor games, and a nice patio area which was lit up every night. Things we enjoyed doing included: Kayaking with the dolphins near Captain Cook monument, paddle boarding above the turtles at Turtle Beach, hanging out at LuLu's, and having coffee at Java on the Rocks in the morning. *****Eating at "Da Poke Shack" is a must!!!

Great Condo, excellent view, so much fun. While booking the holiday, Kevin was so helpful answering any e-mails I sent. The condo was fantastic - and had everything you could possible want for a great beach holiday. We spent every morning and every evening on the Lani - enjoying watching the surf and the surfers :-)

Awesome Stay!! We had an amazing time in Kona! The condo was very comfortable just like home, very clean and the owners did a great job on the remodel, very beautiful. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves at night. The condo is very kid freindly. Our kids had a great time useing the sand toys and the boogy boards! One afternoon we were eating lunch on the lanai and saw some turtles across the street in a little tidepool, we dropped our lunch and ran across the street to watch the turtles eat their lunch! The kids loved it!! we will for sure stay there again and will tell all our friends about this great condo!!! Thank you so much Smith family!

Paradise!! We stayed in the condo from Jan 22 to Jan 29, 2012. It is a great property. The recent renovation is beautiful. Upon check in the condo was spotless. Not only was the description accurate but we had the pleasure of meeting the owners in person. They were there on business and unfortunately they could not stay in their own place as we had booked it months in advance. They were very gracious about the fact they had to stay elsewhere. Being able to converse with the owners in person was great. They gave us all kinds of helpful hints. . We hope to return in the near future for a longer period of time.

Perfect spot in Kona! The property was exactly how it is described. The entire complex is well maintained and they have a lovely pool and deck area. The condo is nicely furnished and it is well located close to the shops and restarants in Kona and of course a lovely sand beach is not too far away. Right across the road is a beach that has lots of tidal pools full of fish and other sea creatures to explore. All the beach and snorkling gear is provided. The owners have thougthfully provided a guide book to the Big Island that was an excellent resource.

Great location for Ironman!! We were here for almost 2 weeks for IronMan 2011 - Vic finished in 13:51:15. Great pictures of the pros (and Vic) running down Alii right in front of the condo. Lava Java breakfast and Humpys lunches were great. Coffee Shack (south) was also great (view and food). Thanks so much for the accomodations - easy access to everything we needed and getting to/from IronMan activities. Also enjoyed DirecTV Sunday NFL Ticket and watching Steelers at 7am. Thanks for everything, if we're back for IronMan again, we'll definetly be back here for our accomodations!!

Exceeded Expectations!! Spent 6 incredible days at the Smith condo. Upon arrival I knew we had picked the right place. While the pictures were appealing in our decision to stay at this condo, the unit itself and the grounds were more impressive than the pictures suggested. The location was perfect. Very close to downtown Kona yet a truly Hawaiian feel with a beach 50 steps away. The condo was very clean and comfortable and nicely furnished with a useful layout. Spent most of our time while at the Condo on the lanai. The views were amazing. With the wrap around lanai, we had a view of the lush grounds and well-maintained pool along with the sights and sounds of the beach and ocean. This unit is one of, if not the best in the complex. Others we met there were very friendly and courteous. The pool, lawn, lounging area and BBQ were ideal for a leisure evening meal as the sun set. We spent a couple of nights in Kona and was pleased with the variety of things to do. Shopping, dancing, ice cream, coffee, walk along the ocean; all a short distance from the condo. After a morning coffee at Lava Java and an outside breakfast at one of the many wonderful cafes, we would spend our days at the beach. Went to a beautiful, secluded beach via an off-road trail which was one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. Fantastic weather and no more than a dozen people to share a mile+ long beach. (Thank you Kevin and Cindy for suggesting Makalu Wena (sp?) and for compiling a well thought out and informative Big Island favorites list. It was extremely helpful!) This was our first trip to the Big Island and after many trips to Maui and once to Oahu, I have to say I enjoyed the Kona area the most. It is definitely the laid back Hawaiian style I was looking for and the condo accentuates it nicely. I would highly recommend the Smith condo for couples and for small families with chidren of all ages. You cannot go wrong. Thanks to the Smiths for a true Hawaiian vacation.

Anniversary trip!! Thanks Kevin & Cindy for sharing your Hawaii home. This was our first trip to this island. We had a great time checking the island out! We did snorkel to Captain Cook along with a few other adventures. All the restaurants had the most beautiful views at sunset. Can't wait to return and see even more. Thanks again!!
Guest: Cyndi Rodrigues Date of arrival: Length of stay: 7 days
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We were so comfortable and able to recharge batteries for thel last of winter's cold up in Canada. We were amazed at all the athletes- those battling the surf and pounding the pavement. Gave inspiration for our own activities, running, golfing, ziplining. We especially appreciated the Magic Jack so I could keep in touch with my family at my dad's bedside. Again thank you so much. Mahalo!!

Everything you need is here! We really enjoyed our stay at the condo. It was great to feel like we lived here, instead of staying at a hotel. Everything we needed, and more were here. Got a lot of use from the icemaker/cuber/crusher. Love a good mojito.
Guest: Colleen Cameron Date of arrival: Length of stay: 14 days
Great experience! We stayed at this property for 4 nights with another couple in mid-July 2010 and found the property to be everything we expected. The location was great, the property was very clean and well maintained, and the list of recommended activities and favorite restaurants that the owner provided was very helpful. Sitting on the lanai and watching the surfers across the street was a great way to enjoy our coffee in the morning! The owner was very prompt in refunding our security deposit after our stay, which was another plus.
Guest: Jan Ashbrook Date of arrival: Length of stay: 4 days
We highly recommend this property! What a great time we had! We highly recommend Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill for dinner-great service, food and reasonable prices. Our favorite beach was Kua Bay north of the Airport- white sand, turquoise water! Get there by 10am for good parking!
Guest: Jan Ashbrook Date of arrival: Length of stay: 4 days
Best holiday we have had! The place was amazing. I bet were going to be here again. It was beautiful. I am 11 from B.C. Canada. I loved the fish in the little pond, I can watch them for hours. The sunsets were great. My sister loved all the mirrors, I don't know why? It was a bit to hot when I sleeped so I sleeped on the balcony. Thanks for everything!!

A Christmas we will never forget! Thank you for your hospitality. We had a great time in your condo, Madison(age 9); Wow! Wow! Wow! What a great place to stay. We truly made it our home for our first trip to Hawaii. I am sure we will be back... from Horseback riding at Waipio Valley, snorkeling @ Captain Cook and exploring the many many extraordinary beaches this will be one Christmas our family won't forget! Thanks so much!! Tom & Heather
Guest: Heather Duczek Date of arrival: Length of stay: 14 days
Condo was in a great location; just a short drive from the downtown area,and an easy exit to the southern part of the island. The ocean view from the lanai was beautiful. My husband went snorkeling right across the street and although the entry was 'rocky', the wildlife and colors of fish were excellent, "The Blue Book, The Big Island Revealed" kept in the living room was an awesome resource for us with great tips for our stay. The condo was immaculate and tastefully decorated. We used the pool and were the only ones in it at the time; the pool is also visible from the lanai. The owner was most helpful prior to our arrival giving us tips for our stay. Other condo residents were also very friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great stay.
