This was a great condo to relax by the ocean. The sunsets from the oceanfront lanai were beautiful. We were ground floor, with no steps! This made it so easy for bringing in groceries, suitcases, etc. We could walk right out on the grass in front of the lanai, where birds came for some tasty bird seed. The oceanfront course of the Kona Country Club Golf Course is so close, which is a big plus.
I came with friends, but I can see romantic couples enjoying Calypso. The place had every amenity we needed. The kitchen was fully stocked. There was even laundry soap for the washer & dryer.
The Grocery store is within walking distance which is important to us. We used coolers from Calypso to take with on some enjoyable driving adventures.
I liked the pool, and the fact that there were ancient archeological sites adjacent to the pool and tennis courts. One detriment is: there is not enough shade at the pool, except later in the day when the shadow of the palm trees comes over.
The booking process was easy and the owner is very helpful in sending Hawaii info before the trip. I will be returning to Calypso!
