We have stayed at Kona Mansions in the past but in a different unit. We like that Kona Mansions is within walking distance to Kona. We had lovely view and the unit had a telescope so it was fun to watch the various boats and para-sailing from the dining room area as we drank coffee in the mornings. Kona Mansions has a nice, clean pool and BBQ area which we used a couple times. This particular unit is a bit noisy though. Early in the morning you can hear the garbage truck and residents leaving for work (cars starting/car doors slamming/people talking). All in all Kona Mansions is a nice, clean, safe complex and we will stay there again
First the good things. The condo is just at the edge of town and perfect walking distance to Jack's Diving Locker (and many restaurants, for those of you less interested in diving). The bed is comfortable and the unit is quiet and extremely clean. The kitchen is very well stocked with utensils, pots and pans and small appliances (blender, microwave, coffee pot, coffee grinder). There are beach towels and lawn chairs, but no cooler. There is a nice little beach just a few minutes down the road (Honl's Beach). Now the not so good things. There is no balcony - just a patio door that slides open to a railing. Even though the condo is on the third floor, there were ants and cockroaches. I know bugs are inevitable in this climate, but the house we rented in the middle of the forest on the Hilo side was completely free of insects. I left a note for management that they needed to fumigate as I was tired of squashing a roach every time I opened a kitchen drawer. The condo is also getting worn – stained carpet, broken kitchen counter, broken blinds. The last was a problem as it is difficult to keep the unit cool if you can’t keep out the sun. Lastly, this really isn’t a 1 bedroom unit. There are folding doors to close off the bedroom portion, but you cut the room off from the air conditioner and windows, so you really have a small studio unit.
This place is in a great location close to all the restaurant and shops in Kona. The apartment has a great view of the ocean and lovely to watch the beautiful sunsets of Hawaii. The apartment is also extremely comfortable and cool with the air-conditioning and fans. Great place to spend a few days when seeing the sights of the big island. Lastly the parking spot is very handy and very close to the apartment.
Only negative, is there is no lift and this place is on the third floor. So you will have to carry your luggage up two flights of stairs.
Property is within walking distance to many activities. Luau at the Royal Kona Resort, sunset cocktails at Huggo's on the Rocks, morning coffee at Lava Java...just a few of our favorites!
