We are long time Oregonians. We've been to the other islands and didn't like the crowds, so we visited the Big Island and loved the laid back, friendly atmosphere. Hawaii is a great escape from the Oregon weather.
Greg and Carol Guile purchased this condo in 2014
We searched for a vacation investment property on the Big Island because we enjoy its laid back lifestyle. We searched many complexes and found ourselves continually being drawn back to Kona Makai because of its extensive landscaping, pool, ocean front, amenities, etc.
Only complex I know with ping pong, BBQ and the pool with an ocean view!
Relaxing stay. All the conveniences of home including washer/dryer and a dish washer. Enjoyed cooking down by the pool and visiting with other guests/residents as we watched the sunset each night. We heard that the snorkeling is great at the shore access by the pool, but the surf seemed rough for us beginners. Only negative was the walk uphill to the parking lot (luggage, groceries, gear, etc). There are a couple of wagons available to borrow to assist with carrying heavy items. Having air conditioning was wonderful since we are used to a cooler climate (Oregon). Such a relief to sleep in a cool bedroom. The lanai is nice for coffee in the morning. The gardens are lush and beautiful and attract lots of birds and a few geckos. Made for great pictures. Couch is not a futon but still a comfortable bed. Very helpful and responsive owner. Plan to come back next year.
We had a great experience staying at this property. The condo was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The check-in/out process was simple and easy. Great location, walking distance to good beaches and local restaurants/ nightlife spots

We spent Christmas through New Years at this property, and it was a fantastic experience. The condo was well stocked with everything needed to be comfortable for a week. The fully stocked kitchens and communal bbq area made prepping and eating dinners easy and enjoyable. The condo (and entire complex) was quiet and peaceful. Easy walking access to restaurants/nightlife in town, and a quick drive to several awesome beaches for snorkeling. Would definitely stay here again!
Our condo at Kona Makai was the perfect location for our holiday . Ideally located with great access to town, beaches, grocery stores, etc.. We enjoyed the deck with the tall chairs and table to view the landscaping and ocean . The pool was perfect to cool off in the afternoon where we met very nice people. Cocktails by the ocean at sunset and barbecuing our dinners were wonderful. The staff was very efficient and managed beautiful , clean grounds. Parking never a problem. Perfect place to relax and enjoy Hawaiian life.
We stayed for a month and had a good time. Condo newly updated with nice furniture/flat screen Tv's. Beautiful gardens, well maintained property. Condo best suited for two people of 50+ age group.
Our twenty-five day at this condo unit was absolutely wonderful. It was conveniently located about one mile from the downtown area with a coffee shop within blocks. We enjoyed the well-equipped unit, outside BBQs and our meals on the lanai with the partial ocean view. The kitchen had everything we needed. The king size bed was clean and comfortable with new bedding and we could go to sleep listening to the sound of the ocean. We enjoyed the flat screen TVs and air-conditioning units in the living room & bedroom. The internet service was upgraded while we were there and it was faster and more accessible. This is a great lower unit with easy access and upgrades. The grounds are beautiful with flora and fauna. We would recommend it to our friends.
Less than one mile to town for shopping, dining, local farmers market, snorkeling and swimming. Covered parking, pool, spa, tennis, extensive landscaping, ping pong. Very sought after resort.
