About Claudia & Jim Shukle

We have been coming to Kona for over 25 years, we are both active scuba divers and snorkelers. We have been to all the islands and the Big Island is our favorite, there is so much to see and do here. We like being down by Alii Dr. as it is easy to jog and the restaurants, Farmers Mkt and functions going on are close so you don't have to use your car at night. We live in Oregon, but come over to Kona a couple of times a year, we also own another unit in a complex on the ocean about a mi. from town.

A wonderful stay in Kona, Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I spent two weeks during the holidays at Claudia and Jim’s condo and we had wonderful time. First of all, the condo is close to everything: main street, grocery stores, restaurants, farmer market, small stores, etc. It was also very easy to get there from the airport at a reasonable price of $40 (including tip) for a taxi. If you want to rent a car (and I would definitely recommend it) there is a parking lot, so no worries at all. The condo itself was more than perfect for the two of us. It was clean and everything we needed was there, from the towels to go to the beach to the mixer to make delicious smoothies in the morning. The balcony was awesome to enjoy a small lunch outside or to look at the wonderful sunset in the ocean. The only thing is that they were building a church in front of the condo, so it was sometimes noisy, especially early in the morning. But Claudia told us before we rent the condo, so we were aware of it (and it was not as worse as we could have expected). Claudia was frank with us about the noise and this is something that we really appreciated. I highly recommend this condo for a place to stay in Kona. It is CLEAN, CLOSE to everything we need, WELL-EQUIPPED and Claudia was kind, honest and definitely trustworthy. She also answered very fast when we had any questions. My mother and I are very thankful towards Jim and Claudia for letting us use their place and we had wonderful vacations in Hawaii, mostly because we were pleased with our place to stay. You must consider this place, I doubt that you will regret your choice !

Very good central location.

  • 3 of 5

Nice and clean condo. Older bldg but very secure. Bed was comfortable and fully furnished kitchen was a plus. Bathroom could use a remodel and the ceiling fan in the bedroom needs to be replaced. Unit is in a nice central location and is convenient to everything in Kona.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place that is central to everything in Kona, look no further than Jim and Claudia's condo! This place was perfect for our week stay. The kitchen, breakfast bar and balcony were wonderful. Bedroom and living room were very cozy and bathroom was spotless. You are a block away from shops, restaurants, and stores with a great view of the bay. We would definitely recommend staying here and plan on doing so on our next trip back. Thank you Claudia and Jim!

Convenient, comfortable, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for the first few days of our trip to the big island to unwind and get familiar with the area after a long trip out. It was immaculate, comfortable, and well-equipped; views from the balcony are nice and it's high enough (4th floor) to get a good breeze but the A/C was still available for the August heat. It was an easy walk to a number of good restaurants and most shops, and a short drive (or trolley ride) to several parks and beaches. The off-season rate was an incredible bargain, communication was good, check-in was easy, and our deposit was returned just a couple of days after check-out. A very positive experience in all respects, and we can recommend it highly.

Perfect island getaway

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Claudia were wonderful to work with. They made booking easy. They made the arrival easy and the made the departure easy (as much as I didn't want to leave!). Their condo is lovely and was guest ready - comfortable bed, everything easily found, and exactly as it is listed. Lovely balcony with table & chairs allowed for lazy morning coffees while listening to the day dawn. That early in the day you can both hear and see the waves as they gently crash on the shore. It was so peaceful! The kitchen is well stocked with all you need - from coffee maker to toaster. Having a mini-cooler and beach chairs really made my beach outings fantastic. I would stay here again and I think that says it all!

Best place for a coffee - Kope Lani. Best place for a treat (pastries) - Lava Java. Best shave ice - Oceanview Cafe (same center where Bubba Gump's is). Best poke - Umeke's Fishmarket Bar & Grill. Wonderful splurge meal - Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill. The farmer's market in the Village is amazing - buy your fruit and produce there! Food shopping is made affordable and easy with both a Target and a Walmart. There is a Costco as well.

Must see - Volcano National Park! It was amazing!

Mahalo Jim and Claudia!

Clean, Convenient, excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. The location is very convenient for access to town shops and restaurants. The condo itself was perfect for our needs, we particularly liked the open floor plan and general comfort the space provided. The unit is on the 4th floor which provides an ocean view and you can also catch a nice breeze through the patio door when the wind is blowing. We also found having access to a full kitchen very useful. The owners keep the place stocked with anything you would need for a trip the beach which was super awesome, there is a cooler, Beach chairs snorkel gear, etc. I would definitely recommend this place to any individual or couple to stay while on the Big Island.
