Our 15th Anniversary vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great place to stay! We have been here before and will definitely be back. The unit has been totally renovated floor to ceiling and end to end. The kitchen is wonderful for cooking and has a new large stove and refrigerator. Relax on the lanai and view the sunset each nite. The pool is just down a few steps where you can swim and then after stand at the railing and watch the ocean right at your feet. Sea life abounds for easy viewing. The on site manager was pleasant and provided us with local information. The place was very clean inside upon our arrivals and the outdoors is constantly maintained. We highly recommend this unit.

The condo was beautiful.

  • 1 of 5

The condo was beautiful. It had almost everything we needed. When we first arrived we were greeted with a torn up parking lot. Kathie had said there was a small repair and there would be a designated walkway. There was no walkway. It was so bad since the parking lot is small. The parking lot was a dangerous walkthrough. Kathy forgot to send me the passcodes to get in. I called her when we got there and that was the only time she returned any calls. I mentioned the parking lot and she stated don't worry it'll be fine. Well it wasn't. Both my husband and I have bad backs and I have rods and pins holding my feet together. It was messy and uneven. Almost impossible to roll our suitcases over the torn up ground.I called her once we got in the condo and she never returned the call. We called her 2times a day and sent her messages and again she didn't respond. The couple in the a joining condo had the same concerns and also tried daily to reach her with the same results. NO RESPONCE.

There was no toilet paper or paper towel in the unit so we found an open closet next to our unit, we thought it was part of the unit. Turned out the stuff belonged to the Manager. We were so embarrassed. The manager of the unit was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely go back to the condo but never again using VRBO Kathie West. The parking lot had 12 workers all day long and large noisy equipment everyday till around 5pm. I did take pictures.

Owner's Response: That review is hilarious. It's true, the condo is a WOW condo! The views of the ocean are spectacular! It's a great, quiet complex that our same guests return year after year. But there are so many inaccuracies in this review I don't know where to start. First I will say if you look up Karren K. name in VRBO there is a negative review. The reason is our condo is a no-smoking condo. Despite these rules, they smoked so much inside the condo that the next guests could not check in. Every single thing in the condo had to be washed, even the linens inside the closets. It took days to air out the place. Also Yes, I did talk to them on the phone so "no response" was not true. And yes there was a walkway for guests to walk on. The whole point of the repair was the driveway was damaged due to an earthquake so safety was our concern. They were told about the work in an email ahead of time. Yes, there was toilet paper and towels, just not a complete roll (really??) So Karren K. is supposed to help pay the damages incurred to our condo and has refused to pay the invoice after repeated requests. Not even a response or apology for the inconvenience it caused everyone. This has never happened in 16 years and I hope it never happens again! Most of my guests are lovely people and I welcome them back.

We loved Kona Riviera Villa and will definitely stay here again should we return to the Big Island. The location is wonderful (close to town) and I don't think I've ever stayed closer to the ocean in my travels. The condo was clean and well-stocked. My favorite thing about this condo was drinking my morning coffee while the ocean crashed into the wall at my feet. Some mornings I got the extra treat of watching body boarders as well. The sunset from this location is absolutely spectacular! Have I mentioned that I loved it here? :)

A WOW! condo!! Oceanview plus WAVES!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our second vacation in KRV. This one on the main level. Good view, good communal barbecue , nice clean pool, good neighbours and manager Brian. Nice little condo, pretty well updated, bed a bit harder than we would prefer. Nearly everything you could want to move in with your food and drink and feel like you've been there a while already.

There is only one place we have in mind to stay on our visits to the Big Island and that is KRV. Kathie West has always made our arrangements a piece of cake; she's a true pro. We are reserved for next year already albeit in a second floor condo, better view but a bit less convenient.

Do not stay in this condo if you don't like a beautiful ocean view with varied marine traffic, surfers, boogie boarders on big surf at times, spinner Dolphins,( no whales in area this year ), and oh, did I mention sunsets?. Sunsets from the Big Island are not always the same or great every night but you get to grade them yourself every night from you lanai. Pretty nice with a tastey beverage !!

Condo, location, view, sound of the surf, people, booking agent , my wife and I choose KRV. Sure bet!

5-star view

  • 5 of 5

We agree with everything that was said in the two previous reviews, including the one bug! Being oceanfront with a 5-star view was our priority, and this unit met the challenge. I wouldn't go out to eat until after sunset, since none of the restaurants had a better view! The Kona Riviera Villas complex is small and private and quiet---SO much nicer than the large condo complexes all around. We heard no noise from neighbors. Since the unit is near the entryway and the laundry room, we did hear a few noises from there, but very few, and never at night. We met several couples, all owners or long-term renters who return every year. Our biggest regret is that we spent only four nights here.

This unit (104) would be greatly improved with more lighting, especially a light on the bedroom ceiling fan, and better window treatments. The bedroom blinds are VERY difficult to use, and the sunscreen blind on the lanai is impossible to use.

That said, we were very happy here, as you can see from our rating. The unit was very clean. We only used the bedroom A/C one night; it worked well. The king-sized bed is very comfortable. The kitchen is well-appointed, down to a coffee grinder! There were some condiments in the refrigerator, and we left butter, peanut butter, and jelly.

We have previously stayed in the Kona area five times and in Waikoloa once. This is the place we would like to return to.
