About The Owner

My wife and I recently retired from our respective careers in Alaska, and have since moved to the Tri-Cities in SE Washington.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Kona Coast

Kona is a very relaxing location, not to say there isn't plenty of night life, but if your looking to 'party like it is 1999' you will probably be happier going to Maui :-0

What makes this condo unique

Located right on Alii Drive, in less than a five minute walk will get you to the farmer's market, as well as most of the shops and restaurants in Kona.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great apartment on scenic Alii Drive

  • 5 of 5

Apartment had all amenities you could ask for apart from air conditioning which can make it hard to sleep. Apart from that, everything was fantastic, comfy bed, great living room area, good kitchen utensils available and a wash/dryer. Location is awesome, a short walking distance from the shops of Alii Drive and the beach is even closer. Great instructions for how to find the place and get the keys from the owner - I would recommend, just be aware of how warm it can be to sleep at night!

All you could want in Kona

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for the Ironman in 2015, the owner was very responsive and provided all the information we needed to make our stay great. Unit was clean and well maintained, very close to the action and the pool perfect. Would definitely come back if staying in Kona, highly recommended.

Great for the price

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here month of July 2015; weather was in nineties and fans just didn't cool condo. This place is convent to town but road noise and condi's next door lots of noise; the parking isn't covered so car very hot also road out of parking can be hard to go left, toward town. Mike got back quickly on a few issues we had. Overall place not bad. If we would have been there in winter would have enjoyed it more

Owner's Response: As this guest indicated, he had a few minor issues that were resolved quite readily, as for the noise, we are right in town and this is unfortunately one of the draw backs to be "within walking distance to everything". Reading the other reviews, the "lack of noise" considering the location has been highlighted. Yes it is true the parking space is not covered, my spot is on the upper deck, but then again it is free, I don't charge extra for parking. Yes, it is also true, I don't have AC, but I have never needed it, and it helps keep the cost down, which this guest did mention, if you are looking for AC and absolute solitude be prepared to spend three to four times as much.

Beautiful, Affordable, with a truly amazing owner!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were very nervous renting a condo privately, but Mike instantly made us feel at ease. He is absolutely wonderful to deal with. He answered all of our questions quickly, and in great detail. The Condo was EXACTLY as described and EXACTLY as shown on the photos. The location of this place is absolutely perfect. We were going to rent a vehicle when we arrived but, when we got there, we realized that we didn't need one. We were so close to everything. Farmers market, restaurants, shopping centers, and most importantly, the ocean was right across the street. The upper level parking area was being resurfaced during our stay which is where the parking spot for this unit is located. Since we had no vehicle rented, it was not an issue for us but it's something to maybe inquire about before renting one.

Even though we were on Ali'i Drive (the main street) we heard no street noise or music during the night. Having no air conditioning was absolutely not an issue at all for us. Mike has plenty of fans there as well as the awesome sea breeze you get once you open all of the windows and lanai doors is just enough!! The home was equipped with everything that you need plus more. I would recommend this condo to anyone planning on staying in the "Heart of Kona". The next time we go, this will be our choice!!!

Thanks Mike!!!!!

A great place and a great owner!

  • 5 of 5

Unless you are someone who is spoiled rotten and love to spend a small fortune to stay in Kona, this is the place for you. We stayed for four weeks. The owner was nothing short of fantastic to deal with. He usually got back to me within a few hours if I had a question. The condo is not directly on the ocean, but still has great views (partial ocean view). You can go up to the 7th floor sundeck if you want an even better view. We loved being downtown. And although the condo is fairly close to the street, we heard very little street noise. At night you can easily hear ocean waves hitting the shore. Having two bathrooms was great, and the condo came equipped with many of the things you need for water fun. You can also walk out the front door of the building (which has a spectacular location right in front of the ocean) and get everything you need or want within a few blocks. The living room is spacious, the kitchen well equipped, the lanai great for watching sunsets, and the building manager is readily available if needed. Frankly, if we ever go back to Kona, this is the place we will rent.
