About Owner/Property Manager

Family owned and visited multiple times per year. We live on the mainland but enjoy vacations at Kona.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 1978

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Kailua-Kona

Our parents originally purchased the property and along with some other family friends have retained ownership since the late 1970's. Because Kona Makai is so well maintained, feels like a new complex and being located on the island's amazing shoreline, we never want to sell this condo...

What makes this condo unique

Kailua-Kona offers the best Hawaiian hospitality and ambiance of all the islands. Small town feel really makes Kailua-Kona special. Home of the the world famous Annual Ironman Race and world-class big game fishing tournaments. There are no high rise buildings. Plenty of small shops and restaurants plus Costco, Walmart, Target, Macy's and Home Depot for longer-term guests. Breathtaking views up and down the coast and fantastic white and black sand beaches. Diving and fishing are excellent in the warm, blue ocean. So much to do and see on this island including volcanoes, waterfalls, Parker Ranch, open markets, helicopter, para-sailing, hiking, snorkeling, and more...

Wonderful spot, great host

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well equipped, even when the guests shows up a day early!

We got our dates mixed, and arrived a day earlier then we had reserved, and the place was already clean and ready to go. Anne was very understanding about our mix-up, and the extra charge was taken out of the deposit. Thanks Anne for your understanding! We really enjoyed our visit.

Great Location and Amenities

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this condo for 5 nights. Lovely location on the Kona side of island. Sunny, warm, and great views of coastline! We even saw a whale in the distance from the look-out! Far enough from the downtown area that it is quiet at night but also very easy to access shops/food as very short drive. Felt very safe in unit; liked the parking area was secure at night. We enjoyed swimming in pool and using public game room (ping pong). Unit has updated washer/dryer and fridge. Unit has AC; nice in the evening if you just want to cool down temporarily! We appreciated the beach chairs/umbrella which we took with us to visit other beaches. Some things to improve: we are both coffee drinkers (and w/ Big Island being a big coffee growing island) we were dissappointed there was not a usable coffee machine in unit. I did take a star off as the condo wasn't completely cleaned prior to our arrival (albeit nothing wrong w/ physical condo, and likely was just a mistake from the cleaners); I let the owner know and she was very communicative/made things right for us. Overall, would stay again. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

Condo had everything necessary for a memorable vacation

  • 5 of 5

The location was great (mile walk to town), pool and barbecue areas were lovely, kitchen had all supplies needed to make dinner and the small things like having a cooler available for the beach and convenient parking made the trip go so smoothly

The best apartment for family vacations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks with our baby daughter and everything was awesome! It is a very clean, comfortable, fully equipped apartment located in a quiet place right next to the ocean, just 5 minutes drive to the amazing sand beach.

This is exactly the kind of condo we love to rent

  • 5 of 5

We've rented many condo's over the years in Hawaii and this was about perfect for us. It's clean and comfortable without being too fancy or giving you the feeling like you can't relax and enjoy yourself. There was laundry which was convenient, a dish washer that was also nice. It is a GREAT condo association, nice pool on site, recycling, garbage, cable and even Netflix! There was also anything we'd need for the beach in the condo including chairs, boards, coolers etc. It is exactly how it was described on the page.

It is an easy walk into town, though we had a car and had NO trouble finding parking on site.

We will definitely see if this is available when we return to Kona area. Thank you to the owners for sharing their home with us.
