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

Sports & Adventure Activities
Right on the ocean! Dolphins every day. Soothing sounds of surf.
Great space; lots of room, comfortable & clean. Loved that it was 2 levels, with bedrooms upstairs.
Walking distance to Kailua-Kona town and good food, outdoor markets, interesting shops & historical landmarks, etc. Short drive to good snorkeling areas & walking distance to Hon’ls Beach, a nice sandy stretch with some shade trees. We were welcomed by Chris who gave us a lot of good info. Felt immediately at home & will return if we can.
RIGHT ON THE OCEAN
HAVE STAYED AT THIS HOME SEVERAL TIMES, GREAT LOCATION FIFTEEN MINUTE WALK FROM TOWN ON THE MAIN STREET. PLACE IS CLEAN AND HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR YOUR STAY INCLUDING PERSONAL BBQ WHICH MOST PLACES DO NOT HAVE, PROPANE WAS LOW WHEN WE ARRIVED BUT TEXT TO OWNER MARK AND WAS REPLACED QUICKLY THAT DAY. SAW DOLPHINS AND WHALES RIGHT OUT FRONT. RENTED A KAYAK AND PADDLED OUT FROM IN FRONT OF THE PROPERTY ALSO GREAT SNORKELING WILL BE RETURNING AGAIN.
Perception is better than reality. We would not stay in this condo again.
The condo we stayed in on Alii Drive looked wonderful in the on-line pictures. However, reality wasn't quite the same as perception. Although the location was good, the interior of the condo was dated and the A/C units were dirty and we had to shut them off after the first night because we were all coughing in the mornings. There was evidence of ants and we sealed all of our snack items and didn't eat a meal there. We saw many dead winged insects that I photographed and had to sweep up every morning. We are guessing they were termites because we saw evidence of termite damage in the second bedroom closet floor. On the last night there, we found a cockroach on the kitchen counter. It was as big as my forefinger. We did contact the owner and report this because none of the four of us have not encountered one in any vacation rental or hotel at any time in the past 10 years in any warm climate in the USA. The owner said that although he had the condo fumigated a few months earlier, he would do so again. We stayed in Kona in 2015 and never saw a single cockroach. I waited to write this review until after our VRBO stay on Maui the following week. The condos were comparable in price (less than $100 difference), size, and they were both 2 BR, 2 BA, and both were on the ocean. However, the second condo which was contracted by the friends with whom we stayed in Kona, was many times better than this one with no evidence of insects or insect damage. That condo was also rented through VRBO. None of the four of us would stay in this particular Kona condo again.
If you leave the sliding glass doors open and do not have the screens fully closed, insects will get in. This unit is so close to the water, I'm surprised he didn't complain about seeing to many dolphins or Whales.I just purchased the new A/C less than 2 years ago, by the way, who uses the A/C in March?, I have the condominium sprayed quarterly.
Best views of the ocean on the island!
Very comfortable and well equipped with all the essentials
Very comfortable and the view couldn’t be better!
This was our fourth time staying here, and we are already planning for our fifth! It is very comfortable, and has the best sunset view possible. The ocean is just steps away. We saw dolphins and whales every day from the lanai. The owners are very responsive and friendly. I can’t say enough about the Kona Luana!
Two weeks in Paradise
We loved Kona Luana. The rooms were nicely decorated and the beds were very comfy, but the balconies were the most used place in the house. It was wonderful the hear and watch the the waves coming in and out.
