Gene purchased this condo in 2002

Why Gene chose Kona Coast

What makes this condo unique

This new luxury condo is quiet, private and located in a more adult residential style complex. There is only one other couple sharing the landing on our floor.

Wonderful views! Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was amazing! I don't often write reviews. It's not that I don't like the places I stay, writing the review just takes time I don't often have. This condo was so great I would stay here again and again! Perfect location between Kailua-Kona and our favorite Magic Sands beach! Easy to maintain interior design! There was enough for all of our family of 4. The kitchen was perfectly stocked for easy cooking. Great view off the lanai which was a good size and had great furniture for meals or just hanging out! Thank you so much, we had a wonderful time!

Anchor Point, Ak

Alaska Couples

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful condo almost 6 years ago and were able to book it again. What a welcome feeling to know that every need is met for your stay. There is only the sound of the surf, the view is as they describe. There was spinner dolphins, long boarders, snorkelers, para-sailers, and the sunsets to take your breath away sitting on the Lani enjoying the outdoors.

We are two couples sharing the condo and with 2 bathrooms, and bedrooms, it was perfect. A gentle breeze and ceiling fans were all we needed to stay cool. One thing we appreciated about this condo is that the Lani is facing away from the heat of the sun. We all feel that if we can make another trip to Kona, this condo is at the top of our list. Gene's watercolor paintings are placed throughout the condo of Hawaii scenes of turtles, flowers. The pool is just a short walk away, and a gathering place for meeting other guests. Not hearing any traffic sure made for a peace filled rest.

Great Kailua-Kona condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights and greatly enjoyed this condo - a convenient location for the west and northern sections of the island. The view is just as shown, and interior is very tastefully decorated with high-quality furnishings. Kitchen has everything you'll need. I'll miss hearing the surf outside my bedroom. The pool below the condo is for the other unit, and it closes at 9 p.m. Only one night was there someone down there loudly talking quite late.

The evening breezes and fans (ceiling and floor) do cool off the condo. It reached the upper 80s while we were there, and while we didn't mind it too much, those sensitive to heat may miss not having AC in the summer months. Only one set of adult flippers and one kids' (plenty of masks, breathing tubes), so you may want to rent your own snorkle gear. There beach chairs, boogie boards, towels.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your review. For future guests, if there is a problem at the pool next door, please call the manager. No one is to be at the pool after 9pm. Normally, we have very little activity next door after 7pm, especially in the winter because their pool is not heated. Since Hawaii has the highest electrical rates in the nation, we have chosen to keep rate increases to a minimum rather than install AC. In most cases, we find that the fans cool off the condo in the evening along with the sea breeze. We do not advertise AC in our unit and the rates for the amenities in the condo reflect that absence. In hotels with AC you will pay considerably more comparing the quality of this condo with many others. Comparable Kona Coast condos charge an additional fee for AC per day for your entire stay whether you use AC or not. If you do feel that you have a health condition that you must have AC, know that we have not advertised the condo as having AC. Many hotels also charge for parking. The condo comes with a fully equipped kitchen with high end appliances and many amenities and small appliances not available in many vacation rentals. There is pool/snorkel equipment in the storage box on the lanai. Due to multiple sizes, it is impossible to fit everyone for fins. There are several masks and air tubes for at least 4 persons. We do our best to accommodate our guests as much as possible.

Great Place to Stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

This condo was awesome! Right on the water. Spacious, well-appointed and the perfect place to stay for a family of four. We'd go back in a minute! Thanks, Gene.

Gene's condo is beautiful! The view is excellent. He has lots of beach equipment that we used. Also, there were spices and some basic kitchen supplies which I appreciated. My wife got a cut and there were some antiseptics in the medicine cabinet. It's nice not to have to buy every little thing, like salt or hydrogen peroxide that you'll only use a few times. The condo was peaceful and seemed more upper end. The pool off the deck was used but not by that many people. All was quiet by 7 or 8. I loved being just a mile from town. It was very convenient. Condo was very clean and everything worked. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Far exceeded our expectations! The unit was impeccably clean and beautifully decorated.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, close enough to downtown eating we could walk. Very quiet! we slept to the sound of the ocean waves and that was it! Watched every night as the neighboring property closed up the pool so there was never noise from that. Amazing views. We sat on the lanai for breakfast every morning watching the Dolphins and listening to the waves and loved exploring the rocky tide pools at the shoreline. We found ourselves returning to the condo for sunset because we couldn't find a place that had a better view. The condo is well stocked, every kitchen gadget imaginable. We really appreciated the use of the coolers and beach towels, saves a lot of room in the luggage not having to pack those things. My friend cut herself on some coral and we found hydrogen peroxide and bandaids in the bathroom cabinet. It's little details like that that really make a difference when you're away from home. Being from Alaska I was a bit worried about not having AC but with the ocean breezes we were very comfortable. We travel often and this has been our favorite rental yet. we hope to return again, and again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Michelle. We appreciate the nice review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and offer our guests a discount for their return visits in the future and that of family, friends and colleagues who you refer to us. I too, worry about the temperature in the condos for our guests. So far, the ocean breeze along with the new heavy duty ceiling fans keep the rooms comfortable along with the ceiling fans in the bathrooms. Thank you again for your review and we look forward to your staying with us again in the future. Should you ever lose the vrbo number, you can always google "geneandcharlie'scondo." Mahalo
