About Vicki Vaughan

We fell in love with Hawaii during our first visit to Kona in March of 2013 and purchased our condo at Kona Shores knowing we would return again.

We hope you catch the 'Aloha Spirit', as we have, while you relax and vacation in paradise!

Mahalo for stopping by! Enjoy Kona Shores!

Vicki Vaughan purchased this condo in 2013

Why Vicki Vaughan chose Kona Coast

This condo was totally remodeled (8/2013) and features full sized appliances, gas stove, granite counters in the kitchen and a full sized bathroom. A king size bed, sectional couch with a 40 inch smart TV with cable, Wi-Fi, AC and assigned parking. The condo is fully furnished and stocked with everything you need for your vacation. You will truly not want for anything during your stay.

The spectacular sunsets at the pool area will be unforgettable. And, since the pool is literally on the Pacific Ocean you may see dolphins playing, colorful fish, sea turtles, and when in season, humpback whales.

What makes this condo unique

The location of this property is amazingly central, close to downtown Kona and easy to get to! There are laundry facilities, bike rack, assigned parking, Wi-Fi and cable. The cabana and ocean side pool are just a moments walk from your unit.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a wonderful time! The condo was great-good location and well stocked. Loved visiting Kona Joe's for breakfast & coffee tasting. Makalawena beach was beautiful -the water was so clear, plus it wasn't crowded. The botanical gardens in Hilo were very cool. Thank you! We will be back!

Vicki was an awesome hostess and unit had more than everything needed to enjoy yourself in Hawaii. So very clean and organized. We had a fruit fairy that would leave fruit on the lanai. Mahalo Vicki

Surpassed my expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had stayed at Kona Shores before in a similar condo and knew we would return. Besides the really nice accommodations, the cost is also the best we have found in Kona, period. We happened upon Vicki's listing and jumped at the chance to book it.

Kona Shores, itself, is close to shopping, has a nice pool, and is very convenient to the Kuakini Hwy and major roads that take you out to Captain Cook to the south or Kohala to the north.

Vicki's condo, in particular, is well appointed with upgrades everywhere, including new appliances, stone countertops, nice tile floors, and comfortable furniture. She was very thoughtful to include other finishing touches, like dryer sheets, plenty of nice bath and beach towels, lots of toilet paper, shower gel, a hair dryer, etc. The bathroom has tons of storage, and the place is clean. Vicki also accommodated us with a later checkout so we could enjoy our last morning in Hawaii before catching our flight out.

The air conditioner is also wonderful. It cranks cold out out quickly- we were respectful of the high electric costs on Hawaii and didn't use it during the day when we were gone. When we turned it back on at night it got cold fast. This was the major difference between Vicki's condo and the condo we rented last year, which had an absolutely ridiculous one hour timer, making nights nothing short of miserable with El Niño going on.

We took time to enjoy the pool, the rocks by the ocean, and the short walk to downtown Kona. Piece of advice, take your car and park on the right side of the road on the way to downtown. We never had trouble finding parking and it cut the walk I half. It's not a bad walk by any means, but when you're in a hurry to get your Island Lava Java fix and its hot out, it's worth taking the car and parking on the side of the road halfway down.

Thanks, again, Vicki for everything. We truly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back soon!
