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 flat screen 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!

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!

Perfect, Affordable place to stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific stay for us. The condo is a good size, with full size kitchen that we put to use. Had everything we needed, including odds and ends you don't necessary think of like zip lock bags, water filter, moisturizing lotion, beach bags and umbrella. Location was great, we watched the sunset from the pool and walked to some restaurants nearby. Some of our favorite things while we were there: Kiholo Bay area, Manta Ray Night Snorkel, and Honaunau Bay (Two Step) snorkeling. I'd highly recommend this condo and will look for it if/when we come back to the Big Island!

My visit to Kona Shores property was awesome. Vicki was great and helped me and my daughter out on a number of occasions during my stay. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who is visiting the area. The condo was clean and accessible to all of Kona shopping and beach areas. Great little pool with a perfect ocean view. I will definitely return. THANKS AGAIN, VICKI. 👍𣐽𣑍👍𣐽𣑍

Kona shores was just what we were looking for. Very clean. Very new. It felt very safe. Provided great items like a beautiful kitchen with many items available for our needs. The deck was awesome for a private breakfast. We were thrilled to have items such as a cooler bag, beach towels, lawn chairs, snorkel set for our use! Vickie left us a very kind note with a champagne bottle for our anniversary! They had a journal that we could get restaurant and information available for exertions. The condo is not directly on the ocean but a walk thru the parking lot and there was a beautiful sunset waiting for us! We did not spend much time indoors but it was comforting to know when we returned to our place, a comfort of home was waiting for us.

Great location and everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The rental was conveniently located, and very comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay again! We found that we had everything we needed available, and it seemed like a lot of thought went into making sure we were felt welcomed and comfortable. The property manager, Vicki, was great, and even was able to help us recover my mother's lost cell phone in from the condo.
