About Mark Stone

Married 35 years, two children, two grandchildren, 5 dogs. 2 goats, 3 Macaws, and a few other critters.

Throughout the years and having visited the Islands of Hawaii, we fell in love with the Big Island. In 2008 we purchased Kona Luana, units 2 and three, a unique oceanfront, 3 unit condominium.

The Hawaiian beaches, beautiful scenery, Polynesian culture and slower pace is what we fell in love with.

Imagine driving without traffic, where people are very friendly, the beaches are breathtaking and not over crowded, the sunsets are spectacular, weather is always outstanding. The Hawaiian Islands claim 8 - 11 of the worlds 14 climate zones.

Living on the Big Island is about as close as it gets to being in heaven. A place we hope to visit often and retire too soon.

Mark Stone purchased this condo in 2008

Ocean front rental house but a lot of stairs

  • 3 of 5

My family stayed at this property between 8/11 - 8/17, 2016. It was overall a great experience. Let me sum up pro and cons for this unit.

Pros: ocean front, uninterrupted view which is really nice. Clean unit, it comes with a lot of tools in the kitchen. Location is ok, as we did not find it quite convenient to walkable scores. Pretty much we drove to pier and beach side.

Cons:

Stairs were a big problem for us. The unit is in a three story house. The entrance of the unit is on second story, with 13 steps. Inside the unit, all the bedrooms and two bathrooms are located upstairs (3rd floor), where living room and kitchen is located downstairs. I dont think the description clearly express the layout of the unit, especially stairs situation. Thats a lot of stairs. I find it quite troublesome because we have a baby, all we did was carrying her up and down, for millions of times a day. My husband and I both swore that we would not get a multi-story house after this trip.

the rooms were too hot for us, although it came with AC.

There were ants in the kitchen. a lot of ants.

The bedroom were quite noisy at night, as a main road was just outside the window. Also, next door was quite noisy playing in their pool till very late night.

================

That should be the end of my review of the unit. However, I had a bad experience with the landlord. I was impressed by how responsive he was when we had the Internet problem at the unit. Then I was informed I was withheld $$ from the damage deposit, reasoning "we left diapers in the trash bag, and some sand on the floor." I contacted Mr Stone for dispute but his response was "asking me to talk to his house cleaner". I paid a lot of money for cleaning. And I am considering filing a complaint because I dont think I made a damage to the property.

Beside bad experience above, overall was okay. I would give a 3.5 star, but with the dispute, 3 stars.

Owner's Response: Just look at my reviews and decide for yourself. Thankfully, the house cleaner took pictures after this guest left my place in a disaster. I'm sure there would be ants, when you leave food all throughout the house and on the floors. This guest also left baby diapers filled with feces in the trash cans and never bothered to empty the trash in the trash dumpster that they passed every day. The house cleaner was over taken by the smell of poop, not to mentioned all the sand that was tracked throughout the house on bamboo wood flooring. Over 400 rentals and this guest takes the cake, I get left a 3 star rating, because, I charged an additional $40 which the house cleaner requested. I gave the guest, the house cleaners number, for verification. Regarding stairs; I have rented to many guest, including the elderly, never was there a complaint, please look at the reviews. The condo is listed as a 3 story unit, occupying floors 2 and 3.. It's only obvious you have to climb stairs to get to it. The guest is upset because of the additional $40 charge.. I don't understand the issue of street noise since the bedroom is facing directly on the ocean side. The condo is describes as being 1/2 mile from the main town. my wife and I have personally made this walk on many occasion one even with our 90 year old parent, no problem! Again, check the reviews for comments. I might add that I also don"t understand the issue of hot rooms. The condo is listed as having air conditioning and it works fine.

Excellent accommodations and location!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place! The rooms were comfortable, accommodations as advertised, and the view was superb! I chose this rental because I wanted to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean... and have AC to take the edge off the humidity and heat. We were NOT disappointed. The sunsets were beautiful from our decks (yes, two decks), and the 5 of us slept comfortably, with room for privacy as well. Communication with owner and local help was easy and effective. The beds were comfortable and baths were great. We did have some local cockroach visitors, but it's Kona, where it's hot, and well, that just goes with the territory. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location right by the ocean. Overall clean and maintained. Beds are comfortable except for pillows, had to go and buy my own. The master bedroom

Is very spacious, the second bedroom is tiny. Newly remodeled bathrooms. Our biggest suggestion for the owner is to turn air on before new people arrive. It was worse than a sauna when we first got in, took hours to get it to a cooler temp. We also had some issues with air units, that where somewhat resolved with the property management people. Dining room chairs need serious cleaning or replacement. Also, it's on a second floor, which we did not realize, hard to shlep all of our stuff a steep flight of stairs. Other than that, it was great to be so close to the ocean

Owner's Response: Took care of all their needs immediately, never mentioned anything about pillows. There are brand new pillows in the closet, if you would have only asked. Can't do anything about the unit being on the 2nd floor. If you can't climb a flight of stairs, don't book this unit. One air conditioning unit's line was clogged and was taken care of immediately. As far as turning on the AC before guests arrive; guests arrive at different hours throughout the day and evening. If I run the AC day and night, I would have to increase the rates. AC is only needed on certain days ,being directly on the ocean, all you need to do is open the lanai door for the ocean breeze which will cool the unit down substantially.

Romantic oceanfront house with sunset view

  • 4 of 5

Quick, friendly & helpful responses / instructions / communication

Nice location with ocean & sunset view

2 full bathrooms are just renewed

Please remember the color of the house - blue & white! It's easy for you to find where it's, as I missed it when I first time arrived according to the GPS; or look for the Art Gallery. The owner may add a picture of the house taken from the street side.

If you forget to close the window or door, there may be some flyers coming in. No worry, it's natural. Just put a dish of water under a light and turn off the other lights. They will swim in the water, and you just need to dump the water with them into the sink or toilet.
