About Kai Hinz

We have been coming to the Big Island since 1988 and we absolutely love this Island.

Why Kai Hinz chose Kona Coast

We love the view and being on the water and watching the dolphins and whales and sunsets. The building and all its amenities are immaculately maintained and since it is a concrete construction, it is very quiet.

Location, location, location! This is perfect! Amazing views of dolphins and sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

Arrived in the afternoon with 3 adults and kids age 16, 12, 10 and 7. The 3rd floor unit was just like the photos. Kona Makai was our fabulous home for 9 days. First things first, kids chose their beds in the loft. The adults chose the bedrooms. No need for air conditioning with all the fans and ocean breezes! The only reason a tv was turned on at an point during our trip was to watch the Olympics- when we were home we all hung out on the wraparound lanai. The view was simply breathtaking! In the mornings we had coffee watching the spinner dolphins flipping out of the water. At night, we watched the sunset from the lanai or from the oceanfront lounge chairs. The property surrounding the pool and parking lot is very well maintained with some gorgeous brilliant foliage. The swaying palms are a reminder of paradise- also kept groomed. Having spent time in Kona previously, this location is perfect. Nice walks in either direction bring you to beaches and surfing or into town. We packed lunches for our day trips all over the island and the stores like Safeway, are close driving distance. We spent a couple days just hanging out by the pool and relaxing and there were more than enough lounge chairs available in the pool area. The pool and hot tub temperatures were just right. Hot hot tub, not too cold pool! The condo had all the necessary kitchen items for cooking dinner every night. The washer and dryer work great and there were more than enough towels for our family. The photos on vrbo are right on. The owner is so nice. Green sand and south point are a must see. Waipio valley and the brewing company in Waimea are also must do's. Adventurous and relaxing trip with a very comfortable condo in a perfect location!

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Overall I loved this condo and would definitely stay again. Beautiful view, great location close but not too close to the centre of Kona. Pool and grounds were well maintained. Quick replies for any communication with owner. It could use a few interior updates.

Really nice view of the ocean and comfortable space for 6 people

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the space. It was nice to have two bathrooms and room for 6 to sleep. Kitchen was very handy and the grills were nice. Enjoyed dinner down on the patio just feet away from the rising tide at sunset. It was wonderful. Access was easy and parking was available whenever we needed it. Others staying there were very friendly and enjoyable to be around. Area was quite and relaxing. Pool and hot tub were clean and comfortable.

Condo in Kailua Kona - A Little Closer to Heaven

  • 4 of 5

What you see is what you get -- and so much more!

Patio, deck chairs, tables and grills beside the ocean, small tide pools in the lava below the patio, dolphins playing in the surf! The grounds, the pools, and the grills are checked and cleaned each morning under the supervision of the resident manager. There were beautiful flowers everywhere!

The third floor condo has screened, sliding glass doors in the master bedroom and family room. They open to a wrap-around lanai and allow the ocean breezes to cool you and the sound of the ocean to lull you to sleep.

We found the location to be ideal. It is on Ali'i Drive with easy access to the Queen's Highway, making trips to stores, restaurants, beaches and other sites on the island easy. The two bedrooms with separate baths were both roomy and the beds were comfortable. (We did not use the twin beds in the loft.) The kitchen was well-supplied for cooking breakfasts and dinner; Safeway and K-Mart are just a short drive away. The security gate and private lot reduced our worry about parking the rental car. The downsides? There are two flights of stairs to climb; and since this is not a newer condo, the bathrooms, while clean and functional, were not updated. But if you can accept these, you will find yourself in a place overlooking the ocean that is quiet, convenient, and has many amenities. Kai and her husband, whom we met, are lovely people and were always quick to respond to questions.

Great condo and complex, Location is PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 adults and 2 kids (age 11 and 14) recently stayed in this condo for 10 days and we had a wonderful experience! The view from this unit is gorgeous, we were often out on the very large lani relaxing with a drink, eating dinners or having morning coffee...pure bliss! The condo was clean, has most amenities you will need, plenty of space with tall ceilings, lots of beach gear and large rooms with comfortable beds! The loft is large/roomy and was perfect for our sons. We cooked most of our meals and the kitchen was stocked well with mostly anything you will need! The location of the condo complex is close to town, restaurants and shops. The complex is very well maintained and the landscaping is so beautiful! We loved using the pool everyday and also experienced great snorkeling right in font of the condo (as long as the surf is not too high). Other guest and residents in the complex were very friendly and had fun visiting with others down by the water while watching the sunset!

Kai the owner was very prompt to respond when booking or answering any questions. Very friendly and professional!

Overall I'd recommend this condo, it was exactly what we expected from it's pictures and description! We will definitely will be returning :)
