About Greg and Carol Guile

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, Aloha atmosphere. Hawaii is a great escape from the Oregon weather.

Greg and Carol Guile purchased this condo in 2014

Why Greg and Carol Guile chose Kailua-Kona

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, tennis, ping pong, amenities, and up front sunset views

What makes this condo unique

Only complex I know with ping pong, BBQ and the pool all with an ocean view!

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Such A Lovely Spot

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Kona Makai 3012 and what a wonderful place to stay. Carol and Greg’s unit is even nicer than the pictures and so comfortable with the King bed and AC which we only used at night. There is a nice view from the lanai and it has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. We loved the complex - grilled most nights by the pool with lots of the owners and guests as the sun set over the water - so beautiful and so enjoyed sharing our days adventures with other lucky visitors. Saw whales and spinner dolphins right from the shore and location so convenient to Konas many restaurants and beaches. Thankyou Greg and Carol - we can’t wait to go back!

Enjoyed our 3 week stay

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this property for 3 weeks after being here for 2 weeks last year. We like this condo complex and have rented at least 6 other units over the years. The property is well maintained with many amenities and the unit itself is as well. The owners of this unit are very responsive and the grounds and common areas are actively maintained as well. We enjoyed the on site pool, jaccuzi, and BBQ area. Sunsets at the waters edge were spectacular. The town of Kailua Kona is about 1 mile north, and we walked there most days. The island of Hawaii has many beautiful beaches, Volcano NP, coffee and macadamia nut farms, and many other interesting places to explore. Would highly recommend.

Awesome! Very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying in this condominium the third week of September. The unit was super comfortable and well equipped with all the needed amenities for a great vacation. When I arrived, the unit was very clean and set up with all the comfort of my own home! I will definitely be returning to the island of Hawaii and renting this unit again. I highly recommend this unit.

Wonderful! #3-102

  • 5 of 5

We came to Kona and stayed for a week, such a great trip and awesome condo to stay in! The lani had a really pretty view of the ocean. If you're a walker, it's only about a mile to walk into town! We used the BBQ plenty of times while we were there and the ocean is right at your feet. Super a beautiful view and area all around. I can't wait to return. Thank you #3-102 for letting us stay in your home away from home!

Great place for relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a great base of operations for an exciting Big Island vacation. Easy walking distance to downtown Kona and it's abundance of restaurants and nightlife. Checkin/checkout process was easy, and the condo was stocked with everything we needed for a week long stay. Beach towels and chairs were provided, which was useful for visiting the many gorgeous beaches within easy walking/driving distance of the condo. Will definitely be back!
