Kona Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom, upstairs, fully loaded unit in quiet building

Fully stocked and ready for fun. This one bedroom very deluxe unit has all the things for cooking, fun in the sea and relaxing on the private lanai overlooking the pool and ocean. This is not some unit set back with a peek a boo view. In a very quiet 20 unit building only 2 miles from town. Right across from the farmers market so you can shop for the best Kona has to offer. The bedroom has a comfy new King sized bed and a private vanity. The travertine floor throughout makes the living space is open and tropical. The private lanai is the best spot for an evening drink or early breakfast. WiFi via wireless. Local phone calls from the unit. Photos do not do it justice as it is being refreshed and updated between each visitor with new paint etc. Gutted bathroom bathroom (all new travertine walk in shower, travertine floor and new granite vanity. Updated bedroom suite with all new linens. Entire new living room floor, TV, and lanai doors & windows. Better and better each month. Brand new showplace Granite kitchen! New appliances, new cookware. The works. You can reach out booking agent directly for fastest reply. Contact Kathie West at 530-273-3003 - a call is best to book this unit as she gets many emails. I also will respond very quickly. Being on the water in Kona we do fill up so if you want a wonderful place that you will truly enjoy call early.

Why Kathie West chose Kona Coast

Kona is a truly magical place we fell in love with it long ago and this building was the first I looked at. Sadly the unit I wanted sold to someone else before I could get it. Now 21 years later we finally are back at the Kona Riviera. Once you see it you will never want to leave.

What makes this condo unique

You really can travel light since this is such a well stocked unit. All the beach goodies and great books are waiting for you. Come relax!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Due to construction problems the unit was not ready when we arrived. However the owners & booking agent got us a nearby condo. The owners picked us up from the airport, drove us to the grocery store then to the alternate unit. A few days later when the repairs were done they picked us up and again drove us to the store and to the condo. It was lovely to be treated so well. It really makes a huge difference to have owners nearby and such nice people. Thank you!

Great place to stay in Kona!! Highly Recommend This Condo and Owner

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a number of places in Kona and this by far has been the best. Wonderful unit, awesome location, great view, quiet and well maintained. Owner was easy to work with and despite the high number of requests they were receiving, were very helpful and accomodating in booking the unit. I highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Kona. We will definitely be back again!!

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting Kona and staying at this clean, comfortable, well located condo. It was very quiet, no neighbors to be seen or heard. The kitchen and baths were immaculate and most complete. We ate our fresh fruit from the nearby market on the lanai every day. We plan to return!

Great little condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay here. Amenities were just what we needed. The view is terrific. The location close to downtown Kona, but just far away from the bustle. The owner was very helpful.

Don't believe the Calendar

  • 3 of 5

Tried to book this property or any that the owner offered (I believe they have 4-5) in January 2015 and while the calendar was wide open, we were told that everything was booked. Tried again a couple of weeks ago and didn't trust the calendar so called the owner and found dates that worked. We sent a check for the deposit the next day. I sent an email to tell the owner the check was in the mail. Within an hour or so we received an email apologizing that he had not check with his wife and the property was already booked. Don't know if they are just trying to get around VRBO or what. Did receive a note that he had torn up the check when it arrived and that would send the check back to us (didn't happen). Best of luck to anyone booking this property

Owner's Response: Aloha, Yes, because of the popularity of Kona Riviera Villa (it's a darling boutique complex of only 12 units right on the ocean!) I am unable to keep up the calendars on VRBO as they change almost hourly! This particular time I told him that my 90-yr old dad had an emergency that I had to attend to 3 hours away. So, my husband tried to cover all my 30-40 requests that day but he missed a booking. We're so sorry we didn't have a spot available. BTW, I just got home from Kona yesterday overseeing remodeling jobs on 3 condos! Boy, KRV is really looking great! Didn't want to come home. So, check us EARLY and we hope we have a spot for your next Hawaii vacation!

Manage difficult

  • 3 of 5

I had tried to rent another unit at Kona Riviera Villas and was told it was not available (even though the calendar said it was.) After calling and getting no reply, I tried to contact her about this unit that was also open for the dates we were traveling. It has been two weeks, and no reply. Today I noticed that it has been rented. I have rented from VRBO on several occasions, and it has always been easy. This is not the case with this manager. It is much easier to work directly with the owner.

Owner's Response: Aloha, I'm sorry we did not have an opening for you for your time period. In the last 3 months, Kona Riviera Villa has been receiving unusually high requests! I get 30-40 different email requests every day and my phone rings all day long! That's good and bad news! So, my advice is to request dates early. You'll also see I have high marks from my previous guests. Try us again next year. We'd love to have you! Mahalo.
