The Perfect Condo in Kona

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo in August when the temperatures were hot and the crowds nonexistent. What a fabulous complex! We loved snorkelling off the rocks where we saw myriads of colourful tropical fish, octopus and giant moray eels. I would happily move to this condo tomorrow. I like that it was somewhat removed from downtown Kona. We enjoyed the walk into town. For those that aren't into walking, there is a shuttle (for $2.00, I think) that has a stop at the next condo complex.

The owners have thought of everything and stocked the closets with all manner of beach equipment. We loved the beach chairs with the pockets that you can carry on your back. Very handy. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking. Sunsets were fabulous, the views from the lanai and bedroom were wonderful. Breezes off the ocean were lovely while sitting on the lanai. There's AC for those hot days. We saw whales and dolphins in the cove and mongooses slinking amongst the beautifully kept gardens. The condo was very quiet and relaxing. The saltwater pool was a great place to relax and watch the stars at night. I don't think any improvements need to be made to this condo. It was the perfect vacation spot for my husband and me and we will be booking it again.

This apartment is beautiful, well appointed and really comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The views both front and back are superb. The pool and Jacuzzi are pristine. The grounds as well as the unit are super clean. We loved the position, the information, the ease of finding it, the extras like oil and spices etc in the fridge and chairs and mats for the beach. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will come again!

Outstanding Condo and Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Kona Makai 1-202. It was one of the most well equipped condos we've stayed in and the views of the ocean from the lanai and the bedroom, and sound of the surf, along with the well-groomed garden were a delight. It has everything you'd want.

Great Location, Everything We Needed Was Here

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this unit and enjoyed eating our breakfasts and dinners on the lanai overlooking the water. The sound of the surf through our bedroom window lulled us to sleep. The grounds are beautifully kept up and the owners are easy to reach if needed. They are also very organized and provided lots of information ahead and in the room. The wifi is great and the unit has everything one needs for the beach and for cooking meals. We had a wonderful holiday, enjoying this well-maintained, well-equipped unit at the Kona Makai and exploring the Big Island.

Wonderful location of the unit, which had all the things we needed to cook and make us comfortable. We used the lanai for every meal.

Amazing view

Great view, great location and great price! Loved hearing the waves crashing from the bed! The only downside was we only stayed 8 days :(

Highly recommend to anyone.
