To say we were pleased would be an understatement. My wife and I are very experienced travelers - we've been at this for more than 40 years. In all of that time, we have never had a better stay, we have never had a better place and we have never had a better location!
Thanks to everyone involved with this effort.
It was simply magnificent!

Beautiful house. Gorgeous sunsets.
For the fees charged, we were a bit disappointed.
Small concern was the inexplicable absence of any condiments- gorgeous kitchen, but no spices, etc.
Major concerns: A/C was pre-set to not go below 76 degrees.
Pool heater was disconnected.
Also, at times we were made to feel like second-class citizens as we entered the guard-house check-in. The attendants ( as well as some Keauhou Estates property owners) seem to have a unnecessarily haughty opinion of themselves and their station in life. We were told directly and indirectly that a sub-set of owners resent the presence of seasonal renters.
Also, the audio on the high-end TV was a problem. After 10 pm, we were told to lower the volume, as a neighbor complained to the aforementioned guardhouse. The volume was not that high, and needed to be where it was to make out the movie audio. Solution was simply to watch TV with the sliders closed so anonymous neighbor could get his/ her sleep- perfectly understandable. However, aforementioned AC was useless as inside night-time temperature climbed higher than outside temp.
Konacoast Vacations ( Chris) was excellent. We'll be using them again.
In considering the rental fees for this property and our overall experience, we will look elsewhere in Kona in the future. We are regular visitors to the Big Island ( 20 years) and have owned as well as rented during this time, so we feel that we can see the rental process from both the landlord's and tenant's perspectives.

This property is the best vacation rental we have experienced. The home and the view are magnificent. The kitchen is top of the line and fully loaded; great BBQ to use on the lovely covered lanai overlooking the infinity pool. The master suite with walk-in closet is lovely and the master bath is outstanding. The guest suite is similarly great. Hard to beat.

Just a few heads up on the property. Listed as having air conditioning and paid extra for air, but there is NO air in the master bedroom so it was stuffy and hot at night. Cleaniness of the kitchen dishes/pots, stemware was not the best - we washed all the dishes we used before we actually cooked with them. Had to wash the placemats before we used them. Hot water for spare bedroom is heated by solar, so you will have really hot water in the middle of the day and then in the evening you only get luke warm water. Pool not heated. This property is not a full time rental - the owners just leave when there are renters. Located in a nice, gated community and close to shopping.

We had a wonderful time at the Hale O' Nani home in Kailua Kona. The home was absolutely beautiful, with every amenity you could want. The views were outstanding, the sunsets were amazing. The home is located in a very quiet, private, secure community, but close to shopping, tourists centers, restaurants, and the ocean. I would highly recommend this home and the management company without hesitation. We would like to return sometime soon.
