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!

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.

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.

Great value, great location

  • 4 of 5

A great complex. Nice and small and we always had the pool and/or deck area to ourselves. You cannot beat the view. Bed was very comfy as were the other furnishings. Kitchen is quite dated but everything worked. Condo was very clean on arrival and I loved the new bathroom and the tiled floors everywhere. Having coffee on the lanai and watching the early morning surfers became a favourite activity as well as watching the sunset. One bug on the last morning but to be expected in this southern spot. Great location away from the craziness of Kona but close enough to that, Walmart and grocery stores and shops.

Wonderful place in Kailua-Kona.

  • 5 of 5

Booking this condo with Kathie was easy and very professional. She patiently answered my questions and made our stay pleasant. The complex is well kept and is small and personal. We immediately felt at home after arriving and checking out the ammenities. The pool is cool. The master bedroom is comfortable with a great quiet ceiling fan and if necessary a wall a/c unit. The kitchen had all of the appliances we needed for any cooking (great money saver - food is pricey on the island). The living room was comfortable and roomy with a nice tv. Parking was easy right on Ali'i Drive. The live-in manager Brian was courteous and helpful. There is a nice barbeque grill by the pool. We recommend #104 and would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your wonderful comments!! This is a new listing for me so there aren't many reviews yet. But this unit has an amazing view and has been remodeled inside. So, I think this may become one of my best listings!
