Stayed here a week with my Family. The apartmens was great (although also rather expensive) for a family of 5. There is a fully eqipped kitchen and we enjoyed several of our meals "at home" at the balcony where we could also enjoy the sunset over the ocean.
The place is really quiet. About 3 kilometers from Kona. There is no reception so if you need assistance you'll have to call a service number. But if you don't mind using the same towels and bedding for a week (or use the washer and dryer) that wouln't be a problem. It's a bit odd when you have find the key in a key-box outside the apartment but everything worked fine. The pool was very nice too.
But the reason we picked this place was because of the proximity to the Keahaluu Beach park. On of the easiest accessable snorkel spots at the Big Island. You walk 50 meters from the Apartments and then you in the Water with beatifull fish, corals and sea turtles (Watch out that you don't step on them in the waterline. Beware though that ít's not a good Beach for sun bathring. Mostly vulcano rocks.
