Great location, every beach supply you could want, top quality facility, extremely well stocked. Great communication and guidance provided by owner. Don't hesitate to book, you will be glad you did.
Highly recommended staying in this condo on your visit to Kona. Everything was fantastic from start to finish. We were a 2 minute walk from the Main Street with restaurants, shops and some beaches. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai every single morning and watched the sunset many evenings. The hosts were incredibly responsive and kind to us when we needed help. The place itself was perfect and had everything we needed. It was spotless. Beds were comfortable and air conditioners made rooms cool for sleeping at night. One of our favorite VRBOs we’ve ever stayed at. Truly can’t recommend enough!
Beautiful place. Very well stocked with everything you could imagine. Big, comfy beds and 3 nice bathrooms. Brand new washer and dryer. Gorgeous views, nice pool and bbq area. Just so convenient. We will definitely be back! Thanks so much.
This condo is the best we have stayed in. It is beautiful, clean and all the amenities you could possibly need. Pictures don't do it justice.
Would definitely recommend and stay here again!
We had a great three day stay to finish off our bi-annual Hawaii trip. This condo is clean, spacious, and well stocked with anything you’d need for food prep, beach activities and family hangout time. It’s a short walk to dozens of good restaurants and bars and the sitting on the lanai at sunset was a highlight for us. We’d definitely stay here again next time.
Very nice location and the condo was very relaxing. We enjoyed our stay very much.
This property was just as fabulous as the listing could show. We were in Hawaii to celebrate my 70th birthday, and this lodging was just perfect for that. Advance preparation, by them, made it quite easy to settle into this unit, and we loved every minute of being there. Mornings on the lanai, drinking coffee, and watching the geckos were the perfect way to start our days. Walking distance to Kailua-Kona was a huge win. Closeness to coffee ranches were also a plus. Nice drive to the volcanoes, and to other parts of the island made this our best place to stay while in Hawaii ( we traveled to 2 other islands while there).
First time staying in a rental and it was fantastic. Lots of room for my family of 6. Very well stocked from the kitchen, to the bathrooms, to the beach gear. Plenty of easily accessible information in a binder if you want to go out and eat or explore the island. I would definitely stay again and recommend this to anyone visiting the big island.
Very comfortable and convenient. Enjoyed our stay so very much!
Hosts provided all the essentials and then some. The only surprise was how well stocked the property was with all the necessities of home. My family’s stay (including two young, Gen Z adults) was very comfortable and convenient in all aspects. Will stay here again – no question.
Our family of 6 including elderly grandparents in 80s had a very nice stay here . The place is very clean. Instructions are very clear. Very well equipped kitchen . Highly recommend!
This condo was fantastic. Very clean and spacious and the lanai was great for relaxing and watching the sunset. Walked to Ali’i drive and checked out the shops and restaurants. The beach gear provided made the trip so nice not having to worry about find a place to rent or buy it.
Very spacious for 4 people. Great patio for ocean views.
The pictures do not do justice to how lovely this condo is! It was absolutely everything we could need or want for a fabulous stay in Kona.
Loved our stay. The property was clean and roomy. Walking distance to so many great resturants and the beach. Loved our experience and look forward to returning. Thanks Donna and Steve for being great hosts!!
Perfect location , very good served , easy and fast communications with the management. The condo is perfect, nothing more to say than excellent the property and the experience. We highly recommended.
From the time of booking until the day we checked out, Steve was very attentive. The condo was very clean and spacious and I must have missed it was a 2bedroom with 3 FULL baths which was a nice surprise, even though there were only 2 of us.
The condo was well equipped with soap, shampoo, starter paper products, everything you need in the kitchen or for a day at the beach.
Location is terrific, nor directly on busy Ali’i but close enough to walk anywhere in 15 minutes.
Every thing you see in the pictures are what you get! Just a great stay! Covered parking was also a plus!
Mahalo Steve and Donna, we can’t wait to come back again!
Clean, quiet, safe.
We are two couples, long time friends. The condo was plenty large enough for everyone and very comfortable. Furniture is quality and the lanai huge, very pleasant to begin and end the day.
Easy walk to shops, restaurants and ocean. I imagine it’s hot in the summer months.
Nice to have assigned, sheltered parking
I would definately stay here again
This was our second stay at Steve and Donna's condo. Location, location, location. Being right at the top of Kona's Ali'i drive and having the shops and restaurants within a 5 minute walk is so nice and they are along the ocean which makes for nice sunset meals and happy hour. The grounds are immaculate as is the pool and barbeque area.
The condo has absolutely everything for what you see in the photos posted. Everything is in top working condition and all beach gear is in great condition, from noodles to boogie boards.
Steve and Donna are quick to respond if any issues arise or for any questions in general.
We do plan to return.
Perfect 5 days in Kona!
Great location, very clean & well stocked- perfect for our family!
The unit was just as described, clean, a close walk to downtown Kona. The owners were very accommodating from booking until check out. Looking forward to staying here again.
Wonderful morning views of the sunrise over Hualalai, and sunset views over the ocean. The condo is very well appointed with every we needed, including beach chairs and snorkel gear. Upon arrival, I was surprised to find the unit looked even better than it does in photos.
Our first thought when we walked in was spacious and modern. It has 3 baths, one in each bedroom and one near the entry. The master bath has a walk-in glass shower.
The lanai goes the whole length of the unit with entrances from the living room and each bedroom and the furniture is very comfortable.
It is an easy walk to the shopping and eating district which has nice establishments.
I can't praise the unit enough.
Everything was fabulous! Beautiful in every way. It was our island paradise - our home away from home, stocked with everything we needed. Can't wait to return to the Big Island and stay this same condo again! Convenient to shops, restaurants, anywhere we needed to go - everything was right there. Our hosts made sure that we had everything we needed throughout our entire stay.
Mahalo Steve & Donna for everything! We enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return visit! Accommodations were perfect! . Again......MAHALO NUI LOA.......ALOHA!!
This condo was very clean and worked well for a group of 6. The 3 full bathrooms were key! It allowed us to get cleaned up and out and about quickly. The walk to downtown was 5-8 minutes, depending on how fast you walk, and where you want to go. The lanai provided incredible views of the sunset, when we were there for it. When I needed to contact the host he was responsive and got back to me quickly. Overall, it was a great experience! I would definitely recommend it for anyone that needs to get a condo for 6 people. Thank you Steve and Donna!!
We were in town for a wedding at Papa Kona and Luau at Royal Kona Resort. The condo was the perfect location and we were able to walk to the locations needed nearby. Everything we needed was in the condo. The beds amd pillows were comfortable. The Lanai was very nice to enjoying eating meals at. Parking was easy. Pool was very nice and quiet and located near the condo. The town was very busy due to Ironman, so location was important!!!
This property is very nice. Close to most everything in Kailua-Kona. We walked to many places on Ali’s Drive and it was short drive to others. Complex was quiet and had a partial view of the water. Great parking available. Unit was clean and fixtures were updated. They’ve thought of just about everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.
Our vacation was absolutely perfect mostly due to our comfortable accommodations. The condo was exactly the way it was represented online...there were no surprises. It was beautifully decorated and the location was perfect. Our hosts were available and responded immediately to any question we asked. I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Big Island. We can't wait to return. We will definitely book it again.
We loved staying at Donna and Steve’s! The location was perfect, they communicated very well, and it was very clean and nice. The pictures really don’t do it justice! I would absolutely stay here again on my next visit to Kona.

Everything was great. Great location. Clean. The view from the balcony is amazing.
Having 3 full bathrooms was very useful!
And all the beach gear is great!
Thank you for a great stay
We stayed at Steve’s place for about one week, and words cannot describe how happy we are with the amazing apartment. This condo has everything you need on the big island (beach chairs, cooler, umbrellas, towels, snorkeling gears, boards…) and the 3 full bathrooms are perfect for a group of people to get ready in the morning. Also it’s close to everything, restaurants and beach are within walking distance. This would be your perfect choice in Kona.
Very spacious! There’s plenty of room for 5 people with enough beds for all of us. We get to see a lovely sunrise and sunset on the balcony. Would book this place again.
Condo was big, comfortable, and beautiful. Everything worked and the location on the south side of Kona was such that the village was within easy walking distance but we were able to avoid the noise/lights that comes with Alii Drive at night.
This is a wonderful place to stay. We all enjoyed our stay. Pictures are exactly what is shown. We would def. stay here again!
We can’t say enough good things about this place. It is a perfect location to all things. We were able to walk to church and to area restaurants. All the amenities you need were in the VRBO. The instructions that were given to us are perfect. And we had very quick response time if we had any questions. I highly recommend this place and we hope to be back very soon.
Our stay at this condo was excellent. We had comfortable beds for 6 people (including a Murphy bed in the living room). The 3 bathrooms came in handy with 6 adults staying at this 3rd floor condo. We had two parking spaces near the entrance and there was an elevator nearby and two shopping carts to help get your bags upstairs. The kitchen was well supplied and the owners left us some nice treats. The lanai was our favorite hangout especially in the morning. I loved listening to the birds sing and the beautiful trees and flowers in the area below us were very colorful. The pool was used by us and was very refreshing. The location was one road from Ali'i (the main road through Kona) and easy to find. Thanks for opening your lovely condo to us Steve and Donna!
Great location and communication with owner!
Condo had all the amenities you’ll need for a fun day at the beach-
We had a great stay! Everything you could need is available and instructions are super thorough! Owners checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. I don’t like the vrbo site makes you login to reply to their message and since I didn’t have my login I couldn’t respond (obviously not their fault)! Maybe provide email separately?!?
Huge outside lanai has a nice view of water and sunset.
We would definitely stay here again!
Donna and Steve provide great communication about their rental property. We were very comfortable during our week long stay in Kailua-Kona. We drove all over the Island but found this property to be an ideal starting place for many of our adventures. We really appreciated all the beach gear they provided: coolers, bags, snorkel gear, towels, chairs and umbrellas. They even left some coffee and Hawaiian Host chocolate macadamias for us on arrival! The Lanai is a nice, comfortable spot to enjoy sunset and dinner. We used the kitchen to prepare breakfast, lunches and dinner sometimes. It was well stocked. My kids appreciated the wifi, the pool and watching Disney+. It seems that most residents are here older and we got in trouble for playing a game in the pool in the middle of the day so don't get too rowdy or loud in the pool if you have kids. I want to go back already and I haven't been gone for 24 hours!
We were so lucky to stay at Donna and Steve's condo in April 2022! Everything about the unit was even better than described in the photos/description and communication with Donna and Steve was great.
Pros: Easy walk to shops, restaurants, and activities. Pool on site. Tons of room in the condo for our family of 4 (including 2 tweens). Snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers, etc. included for use (which was a huge bonus). Washer and dryer in the unit. Donna and Steve provided *tons* of information about things to do in the area before the trip as well as info in the condo. All of our inquiries were answered super quickly, too. Neighbors we met were really nice, too (even left some of our leftover food with the folks across the hall).
Cons: We really had to think hard about a "Con" to list since everything really was great. But I thought it would sound like a bogus review without a Con :) So, I guess we could say that there were a bunch of rules for using the pool which would have been an issue if we had very rambunctious kids. But, as it was, our two tweens really enjoyed the pool, too. So there you go, a lame Con for the review.
This was a perfect condo for our family vacation. The condo had everything we needed for our stay…cooking stuff, beach towels/chairs, snorkel equipment. We loved sitting on the lanai each morning for breakfast and evening for dinner. Very quiet surroundings and the pool area was almost always empty when we went so it was nice to relax and read a book. Close enough to downtown to walk but far enough to feel like you were in a secluded area. We truly enjoyed every minute of our vacation and would definitely rent here again if we should come back to Hawaii.
We recently had an eight day stay at this property. The owners have thought about everything one would need especially for a family like ours which likes to cook and stay in sometimes while on vacation. They have stocked it with all the beach gear one would need as well. Having 3 bathrooms instead of 2 made a huge difference for our family of 5 adults. The place was clean and has plenty of outdoor seating. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance & the grocery store is within a 5 minute driving distance. All in all, a very conveniently located and well appointed property.
This property was five stars all the way around. It was clean, very well maintained, and exactly as depicted. The location was perfect; an easy walk to the "downtown" area. The parking spaces were an added bonus as parking is extremely limited in the area. The additional extras like the beach chairs, cooler, and sand towels were very much appreciated! Communication with Steve and Donna was exceptional. We would definitely stay here again!
Smooth operation, professional, effortless, clean, well stocked, good location, great balcony, comfortable mattresses. Plan on staying again!
This is our 3rd time staying at the Kona Pacific. We love the close proximity to town and restaurants and the generous layout of the units. Each time we have come we have stayed in a different unit with a different owner. All have been great but these host provided everything for a stress free stay and were very responsive to our questions. Hopefully WHEN we come back it will be available
Beautiful condo! Great location is quick walk to Honl’s beach, restaurants and shops. Would definitely recommend.
Clean, convenient and sizeable condo rental, with responsive hosts. Just as advertised. We highly recommend it.
This is a lovely place- we would definitely stay here again!
The condo had everything we needed, very handily stored. We loved having so much room to relax with the beautiful lanai getting lots of use. We didn't need anything from the hosts but felt very supported with their helpful notes. I was ecstatic about all the flowers, trees, and rainbows. I was determined to follow the protocol concerning electricity savings. We subsist on solar power where we live so we did not find it difficult. The best location. One small thing: the coqui frogs(which are everywhere) were as irritating as cicadas. I started calling them BoBeeps because no one could sleep without shutting the doors. Still that was all in the wonderful ambiance of the place. Thank you
We stopped at Costco on our way to the apartment and were pleased to find it fully stocked with all the tools we would need to feed our family of six. We found that most meals cost us $120 or more and the kids were picky so we saved a ton of money cooking at the apartment. The location was perfect,--close to the airport after a long day of travel. Close to the body glove boat tours, which we absolutely loved. We slept like babies with plenty of beds and lovely linens. It took us a few days to find "our" beach but once we did we were in heaven. Highly recommend.
Hands down best place I stayed.
You can tell owners meticulously stocked everything you could ever need ! Beds where so incredibly comfortable! Thank God for the a/c in August! Owner very responsive! Went for son's wedding had beautiful memories..thank you so much . Would love to book again !!!
Fantastic place to accommodate my family of five and walking distance to everything.
I arranged for my daughter's family to stay in this condo at Kona Pacific, and we couldn't have been happier. We were very impressed by the communication beforehand, as well as the quick response while we were in Kona. The condo itself is beautifully updated and decorated, with plenty of room for the 6 people that stayed, and well-appointed for cooking, should you do so. There was a lovely welcome basket and lots of unexpected amenities. The jewel is the view. There is a beautiful garden view, and an ocean view as well, where you can enjoy the gorgeous sunsets in Kona. I was very jealous that I wasn't staying in this condo myself! Donna and Steve were the most wonderful hosts, one of the best I have encountered. I hope that we will be able to stay here ourselves in the future, and would not hesitate to recommend this property. Well done!
Thank you so much for an amazing stay! Your condo has it all! A beautiful and spacious lanai. A well stocked kitchen (truly-everything you need to cook here!). A sweet welcome basket with goodies and coffee (thank you!!!). And - quick hosts who answer questions and communicate amazingly!! Thank you! We’ll definitely look to book with you again!
owners of the property are honest and responds to messages quickly.
condo is walking distance to shops, restaurants, ocean; sleeps 8 comfortably
This was a great condo. Its location is within walking distance to the beach and shops. The condo was clean and well supplied with all you need for wonderful vacation.
This place has 100% of what you need. 3 full sized baths, really well equipped kitchen, tons of outdoor space on the balcony and all the kitchen for the beach. At the end of the day a 10 minute stroll to all the facilities of Kona.
This place was wonderful!! We had to book a place for two days ahead of our group. Very nice! A ton of space for my husband and our two teenagers. Everything was clean, updated. Owners super helpful before we even arrived. Wish we were staying longer! Great place!!!
Very nice place. No disappointments at all. You will likely fall in love with the sunsets. They are amazing right from your lanai. So close to the shops in Kona that we always walked. The host was very accommodating to a need we had. Can't go wrong here!
This property is in a great location! Right by the ocean and several dining & shipping arenas!
Condo was clean when we arrived and had everything we needed for our stay, from spices in the kitchen to boogie boards!
My husband and infant son stayed here in September and we had a great time. The size of the condo is perfect for a family of 3-6 people, the kitchen has been remodeled and has every accessory you might need to cook any meal, the décor is classy and coordinated throughout and it has been designed to minimize cleaning (for example, most surfaces are stone/glass which negates the need for coasters). The location is great - easy 5 minute walk to great restaurants and a luau experience available right across the street!
Only thing we would have changed would be to take the trip another time of year when the weather was a bit cooler - the window AC units work well but we are used to a cooler climate and it took some time to cool down.
Thank you Steve and Donna - if we have the opportunity to come back to the big island we'd love to stay again!
My husband and I have been to Kona several times and this is the best place we've stayed in. We recently spent 2 weeks there with my brother and sister in law and we were all very happy with the condo. Very spacious, huge bedrooms and bathrooms and an amazing deck. Beautiful fully equipped kitchen with more dishes than other places we've stayed. Excellent location!!! It was great to have everything needed for a day at the beach. Loved staying there and will definitely stay there again.
Steve and Donna were also very quick to respond to a couple of questions I had.
If you're looking for a condo in Kona, THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY!
Awesome, spacious condo & Lani equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing day or night in & beach adventures too! The condo was clean, fully stocked & instructions & communication from the owners could not have been better - very quick to respond to our inquiries. The floor to ceiling glass in the living room & both bedrooms allowed you to enjoy the spectacular sunsets whether you were inside or outside on the lani - so beautiful, relaxing & romantic! We highly recommend this specious, beautiful condo to anyone planning a trip to Kona & we will definitely try to stay here the next time we are able to get back to Kona.
My wife and twin daughters thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Steve and Donna's place. There is plenty of room, a beautiful lanai for talking and dining outside, a well-equipped kitchen and all of the beach toys you would want. Additionally, it is a few minutes walk from many restaurants, shops and the Royal Palace, among other local attractions. Nice to have a parking garage as well. Steve and Donna are very responsive leading up to the visit and throughout and really want you to have a good time at their place. I would highly recommend this place as your Big Island headquarters.
Great location. Within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Very clean.
Several friends and myself stayed here in March 2018. The location is perfect and having dedicated/secure parking is awesome.
You can walk to many places and it is just a short drive or trolley ride to others. My big piece of advice would be do not buy ANY beach gear. Check the magic beach closet first. Everything you need is in there. Beach chairs, umbrellas, pool noodles, cooler bags, masks, snorkels...
The lanai was a great place to hang out. We did cook many meals in the condo. The kitchen had everything we needed. There is also a washer and dryer so you can have dry clothes when you go home.
The complex is quiet and the folks that we did run into were very friendly. It was a peaceful place to relax with friends. Booking and paying was simple and my security deposit was return very quickly.
I will stay here again :)
Everything about this place is great!
Location: The location of this condo is perfect. It’s situated in the desirable Kailua-Kona area just off Ali’i drive. It’s a short walk to all the restaurants, sites, and activities Ali’i drive has to offer but is just set back far enough that you don’t get the street noise. Accommodations: This is the nicest place we have stayed in our past 6 visits to Hawaii. Kona Pacific has beautifully maintained grounds, elevator access, covered assigned underground parking and a pool/BBQ area that is a great place to prepare dinner and watch sunset. The condo has been tastefully remodeled and it exceeded our expectations. A new kitchen with granite counters, new appliances, fresh paint, and every kitchen utensil and tool you could ever need. Bedrooms are very spacious even with comfortable king sized beds. Even a pack and play was available for our infant joining us on our vacation. The wrap around Lani is HUGE and provides palm tree and ocean views. We even got to watch a lightning show on the hillside one evening. Fans in every room make for comfortable living. A/C is available but we didn’t need it with windows open. Beach gear is handy to make for enjoyable days at the beach. Plesently surprised that the living room pictures made unit seem smaller than it actually was.
Owners: Can’t say enough good things about the owners. They did everything they could to make our trip flawless. Very responsive with questions and great communication. Will be looking at this place again for our next visit.
