The condo is located less then 1 mile south of the center of Kona. Huggo's is a restaurant close in town. Its a great place to party on Friday nights. There is a live local band every Friday night where you can dance the night away. Located directly across from Huggo's is Bongo Bens and Humpy's which are also popular restaurants and also great places to dine. The food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. You will find fresh fruits and vegies at the local farmers market located right in the heart of Kona. You will also find yourself grocery shopping at Safeway, KTA, Sack and Save and Costco. There are several places to rent bikes, mopeds and jet skies if you wish. Two miles north of the condo is, Kahalu'u Beach park. This is a wonderful spot for some really great snorkeling. About a quarter of a mile before Kahalu'u is Magic Sands Beach. Magic Sands is a beautiful white sand beach. Its a popular beach to go boogie boarding and to do some serious sun bathing. Kona has a wonderful street fair once a month that features local artists. Every day is a beautiful day in Kona!

Awesome experience!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this place is soo awesome! First of all my girlfriend and I got a place in Kona( rented for the whole week) and ended up not happy with the place and being in Kona there isn't a lot of options at certain time of the year because everyone is booked up. I messaged him the first night saying we NEED to get out of here and he messaged me right away saying he would be glad to help. He was having the place cleaned and let us drop all of our luggage off so we didn't have to carry it. It's also in a great location right in the middle between snorkel beach and kona. There is also a little grocery store down the street called Banyan mart. There is snorkel gear as well as noodles and boogie boards on the back porch and has a little kitchennet. The last day he moved our time out from 11 to 1pm because our flight was at 5. Overall I would give our experience a 5 out of 5!

No Worries when you stay here

  • 5 of 5

The picture is your view from the pool. The entire complex is quiet and well maintained. Ali'i Dr is a busy road with pedestrian's and vehicles. Not so much that you can't get out into traffic. The unit itself was nice. We didn't use anything but the fridge but it is well equipped for cooking. The bed and sofa were both comfortable to sleep on. No bed bugs, I checked :) The only thing that I noticed was the caulking around the tub needs attention. I would definitely stay here again.

Convenient and comfortable. Reasonably priced !

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful view of the ocean on the courtyard/BBQ area/pool. Quiet generally with privacy on the small but nice lanai. Beach chairs and towels available for use. Convenient location for easy morning run or walk on Alii Drive. Bed was comfortable and accommodations were nice. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kona Shores! The apartment is just the right size for two people. We appreciated having a full kitchen, and there’s a small cooler available which was perfect for taking a picnic lunch on our day trips around the island. We brought our own snorkel gear, but we noticed there was gear stored on the deck if you didn’t bring your own.

The room was clean, the bed and couch were comfy, and the air conditioner kept things cool at night. The complex was very quiet while we were there. The pool area was a bonus—a nice pool with a lovely view of the ocean. We only used it once (we prefer snorkeling), but it seemed to be seldom used so although the pool was small, it was a nice place for a quick evening swim.

We walked into Kona nearly every evening—a great way to end the day. There are a few nearby beaches to watch the sun set, which was great.

The place is very affordable, the owners were very helpful, the wifi was greatly appreciated; we will definitely be staying here on our next visit to the Big Island!
