We booked 2 units at the Beach Villas at Kahalu'u on Ali'i drive Kailua Kona in October. The accommodation provided everything for a terrific family holiday, fully self contained even down to beach chairs and bogey boards. The units are across the road from one of the best snorkelling beaches in the populated areas of the Big Island and if the ocean is not your scene then the unit complex has its own pool with a view of the ocean. There is a large shopping centre only 500 meters walk from the units. If you do visits the Big Island it is best to hire a car and there is ample parking off road behind the unit complex and Kona town ship is a short drive away. You could however also catch the shuttle bus into Kona, $2, bargin.
All in all a great location with all the facilities you require. More
