About Kathie West
We come to Kona every winter and have always loved staying at the Kona Riviera Villas, finally one came up for sale that we couldn't pass up - it has the best ocean view around. We've decided to share our condo with others when we are not here, so it is furnished and stocked with everything we need for our vacations, and is our home away from home.
Kathie West purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Kathie West chose Kailua-Kona
The condo we chose has an ocean view from every window and we can hear the surf through out. It's very relaxing when we come here to unwind from our busy life back in Washington.
What makes this Condo unique
We can't say it enough: location, location, location. You can't beat this one. We eat all our meals at the table on the lanai, watching the waves, we even have surfers that surf the waves within view from our lanai.

Absolutely perfect! Waves!
We have rented this perfectly placed condo several times over the past few years. We keep coming back because its location is prime and the condo itself is directly on the water. The condo has glass on three sides and the lanai is directly on the water where we spend many evenings drinking wine, watching the sunset, listening to the ocean, and enjoying seeing the moray eels come into the tide pools. This year we even watched quite a few sea turtles come right in front of us to rest and shelter from the tides. The condo has a beautiful swimming pool and pool deck and it is great to BBQ dinner and eat on your lanai while enjoying the gorgeous location. There is a reserved off street parking spot allocated for the unit, so it makes coming and going easy. The condo is nicely furnished and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook and enjoy. The only thing that would add value is there is not a clothes washer or dryer in the unit. There are pay washers and dryers near the parking area, but for a longer stay, it would be nice to wash clothes or dry towels in suite.
Amazing condo in great location!
This oceanfront home is the perfect vacation getaway! We saw rays and dolphins from our living room. The tide pools are full off creatures like crabs, fish and eels. The home had everything you need to relax after a day of exploring. It’s close the many restaurants and bars. We explored all sides of the island and cannot say enough good things about our stay. Mohalo!!!!
Awesome location...any closer to the ocean and you would be in it...property issues addressed quickly...clean and plenty of room
This property was everything and more. I can’t say enough about how truly wonderful our stay was and the views...glorious sunsets, turtles feeding by day, eels by night. We even witnessed a spawning ritual between two eels that was very cool. The home has everything you need and the location is perfect. The market across the street is nice and where we got our snorkel equipment. We bought then sold it back. Was less than $3/day each. May we suggest Fosters Kitchen for dinner and Huggos on the rocks for happy hour. It was a wonderful place to spend our 25th anniversary. We even had tips on the best places to visit. It was the most relaxed I have felt in years. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. We hope to be back!
Gorgeous grounds, clean, well kept..
The condo was perfect for my husband and I. Watching the eels, turtles, manta rays and dolphins, not to mention all of the fish in the tide pools was spectacular. We ate dinner on the patio and watched the sunset every evening. The view was better than any restaurant could offer. The condo provided everything we could possibly need. We will definitely be back!
My wife and I had the chance to stay here for our honeymoon. I can only repeat much of the comments said prior to me. I will stress this... get the rental air conditioner! The unit (outside the air conditioned bedroom) was fairly humid. Breakfast off the lanai listening to the waves off the ocean in the morning was a great way to start off the day.
At night eels were visible in the tide pool. We watched while the other tennants fed them.
We saw no ants or cockroaches as in a previous review.
The neighbors in the villa were are very friendly and talkative., including a very happy service dog. We were able to socialize with many of them in the pool area outsidr yhe door.
We enjoyed our time at this villa. If not for the humidity in the unit (which was beyond anyone's control) I would have gave it a 5.
Farmer's Market across the street. Shopping and downtown Kailua Kona 2 miles from the condo. Best snorkeling beach 3 miles away, coffee farm tours within 4 miles.
