About Janet Oldham
Newly retired and enjoying freedom to travel.
Janet Oldham purchased this Condo in 1998
Why Janet Oldham chose Hōlualoa
After doing all the islands, Kona has the best weather. Not much wind and rain. Plus it still has a small town atmosphere. I have enjoyed the Kona Makai since it was new, coming with my parents. I bought and have maintained a vacation unit since 1998. I enjoy coming regularly to ensure maintenance, updates and replenishing is done.

We had an absolutely fantastic time staying at Kona Makai, and would definitely rent here again. The condo is in a great location, close to everything and even walking distance from town. Fantastic views of the ocean - we enjoyed the most beautiful sunset on our last night. The condo itself is quiet and well-equipped with everything you need, and the bed was really comfortable. Our only comment for improvement is that the bathroom could be updated - we’re both tall and the shower head was a bit too low. But otherwise we were very comfortable and would absolutely rent from Janet again on our next visit to Kona!
It was a very nice quiet place to stay. Great location. We could walk to the shops and bars.
We had everything we needed and more. We certainly would not have run out of anything and having the washer and dryer made things very easy. The pool and pool area was very nice and everything was clean and comfortable.
We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was exactly as pictured. No complaints. Highly recommend.
Thanks for taking the time to write a nice review. I replenish regularly and always take care of any issues as soon as I know. Please come again.
Excellent location and well maintained -perfect
Enjoyed the nicely equipped condo. Lots of extras. Sunsets were perfect right on the ocean with outdoor furniture, pool and spa. Bbq excellent and clean. Will come again.
Amazing location and incredible beach
The location is perfect, within walking distance to the cute town of Kona where you will find amazing restaurants and great shopping. There is a coffee place about 100 yards from the condo if you don't want to make your own. Janet's place is perfect! She has everything you need to take advantage of the coast and be comfortable during your stay. I wish I could have stayed longer and taken advantage of the beautiful sunsets and walked the coastline more. The bed is super comfy and the bath towels are very thick and luxurious. I would go back and stay a week if I could.
We own a condo in the same complex and had our friends come stay at this condo. It was perfect for them and close to our unit. We love Kona Makai. It is well kept grounds, pool, BBQ area, and the condo was clean and complete. Close to town and right on the ocean.
Appreciate your taking the time for a review.
We also love the Kona Makai having stayed there for the last 30 years and owned for 20.
We arrived right after to do some updating and found it very clean and in good order. While there we put in a brand new mattress, bedding, towels, furniture cushions, bath rugs, new HD cable with ultimate high speed internet, as well as numerous improvements. We strive for cleanliness, well stocked, and add improvements at least once per year.
The HOA is very friendly and makes sure the ocean side grounds and common areas are exceptional. Just in the last year they have put new roofs to incorporate solar power as well as new drainage plumbing. The year before they bought all new common area outdoor furniture.
