About the property

Ocean Facing Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

TRY OUT THE NEW 'BOOK RENTAL BOX' FEATURES LOCATED ON THE TOP RIGHT OF THIS PAGE FOR QUICK QUOTES AND EASY BOOKING. ----

This unit is simply furnished and priced to reflect the no frills condition. Please review the pictures which clearly show the condition of the unit. If you are looking for the best Kona Complex, at the best price, this is it. Clean and fully set up for beach vacationers, with beach equipment, towels, coolers, etc. Private WIFI in the unit. Why pay for fancy upgrades, when you and your bank book can be comfortable for less $.

This ground floor condo has NO STAIRS and has easy access to parking. It is set towards the quiet end of the complex. It features a front lanai with great direct views of the ocean and the beautiful gardens. The lanai has a dining set and very comfortable chairs for sunset watching. The bedroom is equipped with a queen bed with a micro fiber/memory foam topper and there is also a sleeper sofa in the living room. The kitchen has a dishwasher, stove, microwave, refrigerator as well as a stack washer and dryer. There is A/C and ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom. A/C is rarely needed as the mountain/ sea breezes flow right through the unit keeping you comfortable most days. Private secure WIFI is available in the unit (new modem/router). There is no smoking in the unit and Kona Makai complex is a non-smoking complex.

Great value for the location. Kona Makai is a beautiful ocean front garden complex with immaculately maintained Hawaiian native plants. It is a very quiet complex with tennis courts, pool, spa, exercise rooms and covered parking (great for keeping the car cool). It is best suited for couples and families with older children (14 and older). Enjoy the beautiful snorkeling reefs right at the property with access (except in high surf). Watch dolphins, sunsets and whales from the great pool area on the ocean with spa and barbecues. Relax and barbecue your fish down by the ocean. Kailua-Kona is also the home of the famous IRONMAN competition in October.

If you don't have transportation, and you're up to walking, it is a very convenient 10 to 15 minute walk to town and well known restaurants like Bubba Gumps. It is also minutes from a famous snorkeling beach with a sea wall, lifeguard, and sea turtles. Enjoy shopping in town and at the open market. There is also a trolley that runs along Ali'i Drive which takes you to the shops, movies and restaurants. In town you'll find many tour companies that will take you to various points of interest on the island.

About Sandra Vogel

I fell in love with Hawaii when I came to visit in 1968. I always had a love for Hawaii as my grandmother was born right here on the Big Island back in 1887. My sister also lives in the Islands (Honolulu, Oahu). It took my husband and I until 2003 to move to the Big Island. I was recently widowed, but I still live on our 5 acres down by South Point (the southern most point in the USA) here on the Big Island. Kona is my fun retreat away from rural land chores. I rent the condo out to others to enjoy the Kona life when I'm not using it.

Sandra Vogel purchased this condo in 2011

Why Sandra Vogel chose Kailua-Kona

This complex is right on Ali'i Drive. Walking distance to Kona's famous restaurants, shopping and beaches.

What makes this condo unique

This complex has beautifully maintained tropical gardens and direct access to the ocean. In calm surf, access the tide pools right at the complex.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay in Sandra's condo in Kona. It has everything we could have needed (and more). On the way to the condo from the airport we stopped by the local walmart to pickup some items we thought we we going to need (steak seasoning, beach mat,...). To our surprise when we got to the condo, it had many of the items we had purchased. The condo even had some nice extra's like boggie board, beach chairs, snorkel/fins. Sandra takes excellent care of the condo and does a great job cleaning and prep'ing for the next guests. We had the pleasure of meeting her at checkin - such a nice person and very helpful. Told us about some of the cool things to do and see and really made us feel welcome. The Condo directly faces the ocean, so you have a nice unobstructed view of the ocean. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and the bedroom has a very comfortable bed. We had only a minor plumbing issue (it was actually with the building not with the unit). We called Sandra and the problem was taken care of immediately. In summary, we highly recommend this condo. Thanks so much Sandra for letting us rent your condo for the week. We will definately look for this condo on a return trip to Kona

Great Fun, Great Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

From confirmation of the reservation to the date of check out Sandra was always checking in to make sure that everything was going as expected. The property comes with everything that one would need for a vacation from washer and drier to beach going accessories. It is only a 15 min walk to downtown Kona which provides all types of shopping and restaurants. I would and will use this property again. Even better than my wife and I expected. Even the property managers are super friendly. Awesome price for all of the amenities that are included! Little extras: coffee maker, box fan, coffee grinder, laundry basket, plenty of towels for the bathroom and the beach!

Kona visit

We had a lovely visit. The weather was perfect. So many great restaurants in the Kona area. The condo needs a little TLC. Otherwise everything was fine.

Great location in Kona

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view!! It has lots of useful things available for you to use like beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, cooler, ice packs, and books. The kitchen has everything we needed to have meals in. There are grilles & eating areas down by the shore near the pool. Great for cooking out. Sandra is very friendly and helpful. We had a great stay!

Good view in a nice complex

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a great stay in this unit . . . The view from the lanai is outstanding (as seen in the picture) and it was usually very quiet while sitting out there enjoying morning coffee or evening wine. The kitchen was well-stocked, with pretty much everything we needed - sugar, salt, pepper, toaster, coffee maker, coffee grinder, plenty of glassware, cookware, and utensils. The owner has also provided lots of beach towels, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, coolers, etc. for a nice day at the local beaches. There are a/c units in the living room and the bedroom, which help cool things down a bit at night if the breeze isn't blowing. Parking is plentiful and convenient - right outside the unit. There's a nice pool, grill, etc. down by the water, and the price was just right. Really, my only criticisms of the place are one of personal taste . . . I would prefer some type of hard flooring throughout the unit, rather than carpet and the pillows on the bed were extremely soft, so we had to double things up.

As far as proximity to things - it's about a 15-20 minute walk along Ali'i Dr to the beginning of the busy, touristy section of Kona. I'll warn you though, there isn't a sidewalk, only a narrow bike path on either side, and we didn't feel comfortable walking on it. As we were walking towards town on the first night, a woman (looking down at her cell phone) started to veer directly towards us before swerving back as I waved her down. It's also half as wide when you cross over the small bridges. I saw plenty of other people walking along each day, so I guess it's an option, but we used Uber instead and that worked for us. Yes, they have Uber and Lyft on the Big Island now, and we never had an issue getting one.

That's all I got. I recommend staying here should you find yourself in the area.

Beautiful ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our time at Sandra's condominium. All the necessities are provided from beach towels and boogie boards to kitchen supplies for baking! Kona Makai is particularly comfortable for people who enjoy a quieter atmosphere. The unit was clean and comfortable with wonderful views of the ocean and sunsets! Communications with Sandra were always prompt and clear.
