The property fit our family of 4 w two teens perfectly. It was beautifully decorated, and provided enough towels, bedding, etc. glad to have a washer and dryer on site. The kitchen was well stocked with basic items and seasonings. AC in bedrooms worked. Bed was a good size and comfortable enough.
The gym weight equipment in the fitness room is pretty much rusted. Don’t get your hopes up if you wanted to use weights. Running along the main highway is your best option.
The condo itself was exactly as shown in pictures and we were happy with our unit. However, there are a lot of rules that I feel should be posted along with the rental info. Pool rules are pretty ridiculous, courts can not be used for pickle ball, and many long time residents/owners want to micromanage the complex and are not welcoming in the least. For these reasons, I have chosen to stay elsewhere next year.
Everything was great.
The One and only problem was the shower/tub the hot water didn't stay hot very long. So made it in possible to take a long hot bath.
My two teen boys and I enjoyed our stay. The twin beds and pool were a big draw. But there was such attention to detail. Great to have access to snorkeling and other beach gear and a few staples in the kitchen including Kona coffee. I would definitely stay here again. The only complaint was that some of the snorkel hear was getting a little old and worn out. We loved the breezes blowing through.
Kona Makai is kept up nicely! The unit we stayed in is in good condition. We found out that you cannot run all the air-conditioning and the oven without tripping the breaker to several other units. We really enjoyed our stay here!
What a lovely place. Situated right in town, yet very peaceful. The place is spacious and we had a perfect sunset view with dolphins swimming by. We love the lanai, the high ceilings, the comfortable bed and everything you need in the kitchen. It was the perfect place to celebrate our one year anniversary. Mahalo 🌺we will return.
Our stay on the property was amazing, nice an quiet. The amenities on the property was great an very useful. This was My first time to Kona an it was as exciting an so much fun here. The condo was very comfortable an plenty of room,just not enough bathrooms. I thought the room had 1-1/2 bathrooms. Other then it only having 1 full bath the stay was excellent. Thank u again for letting us stay with u guys we did take care of the room we stayed in as if it was our own home. Again Thank u an Thanks to the maid for her cleaning after everyone who visits the Kona makia residence. Mahalo an YHVH'S BLESSINGS TO U ALL.
The property was as described. Very Awesome! Well equipped. Quick response when we had a question. Beautiful!
The property and unit we stayed at was clean with basic essentials stocked. The washer and dryer in the unit came in handy. The check in and check out process was not hard. For the most part we enjoyed our stay. We were out enjoying the island most of the days but it was nice to come back and relax on the lawn chair in front of the ocean and enjoy the nice breeze.
Place was as described online plus. Location is a short walk to town and all it has to offer. Home and grounds are beautiful and well kept and place is easy to access. The added bonus of beach chairs, coolers, snorkel gear, tennis gear (though not used by us) was very convenient. Everything in the house was labeled so there was no searching for things to find what you needed a great time saver. Lanai has great views of gardens, pool and ocean. I would have no issues staying here again.
Beautiful area and great little place on the beach. It is a very comfortable space and it’s in a great location right in the cute little town. I would definitely stay here again
Very grateful to have stayed at this condo. This property has all that you need. Even the snorkel equipment for your enjoyment. Nothing was left aside and Dawn the property manager is very responsive if you have a question. Will definitely stay again.
The property/gardens are beautiful. This is a great condo to unwind in at the end of the day. It is comfortable and has everything you need. I thoroughly enjoyed both lanais and the partial ocean views they provided. The pullout couch was one of the more comfortable that I have ever slept on! Thankful for the ac when the air was at a standstill, especially up in the loft. The complex has a few different gas grills along the ocean to use, a great pool/hot tub, and nice chairs to relax in along the ocean front. Very quiet for being right on Ali’i. I would stay again!
We had three lovely weeks in this very nice condo. When we arrived we felt like we were entering our own home. It is lovely and so many good things about it. Spacious and nice. The two Lanais gave us a feeling of being in Hawaii . The gardens are very beautifully kept and a joy to walk around in. Having the big TV's helped when we returned after a day at all the marvelous Beaches on The Big Island Of Hawaii. The Bathroom and the Master Bedroom were so comfy and we enjoyed the tropical breezes flowing through the Condo. The sound of the Ocean Waves lulled us to sleep
The Kitchen was well stocked with all the right Pots and Pans and Dishes and cooking utensils. There was a shortage of Wine glasses! The outside BBQ section was great for cooking and watching the sunset. However, the kitchen is really showing its age, especially the dishwasher and the stove. It would be nice to see it upgraded.
The beach equipment were plentiful and in good condition, we enjoyed the umbrella and the chairs when we visited the pretty beaches. Every thing was great and we had such a wonderful time that we booked again for next year. Thank you Bob and Karen for sharing your little part of Paradise with us. We so appreciate it. Mahalo and Aloha..... Ed and Carolyn
We really enjoyed our stay & the unit had everything one would need ...would definitely return...couldn’t have been any better ..had everything & high end at that!!
First time fir my parents from Germany in Hawaii, couldn't have been better, very spacious for the whole family, everything we needed was there, even more, perfect!
We had a great time!
property was clean, in a good location just out of the downtown zone, with a nice pool area right on the water. would recommend this place!
Beautiful property and condo. It has everything you need. I’ve lanai for meals. Great for kids and adults. Shopping and Restaurants nearby a great sunset views.
Rental was great and came with everything needed for a VRBO stay. Teen girls (16) loved the upstair loft with the twin beds. The main bedroom mattress was comfy. The patio lent for an awesome sunset view. Pool, hot tub and grill area were well kept. A very quiet time period so if you want to party - this isn’t the place but it’s a great retreat for those who want to party in downtown Kona and come back for some R&R. It was perfectly centered for distance to Hilo for the volcano or Hapuna Beach for sand and waves. It’s about 25 minutes to the Marina where we went with Torpedo Tours for 2 excursions. We definitely would recommend the condo. Awesome time.
We loved our room! We have four kids and it was the perfect family room. Our oldest girls loved the loft and the little two shared the fold out couch. There were three boogie boards, three snorkeling sets, water shoes, two coolers, two campfire type chairs and beach toys all available in the unit. We grilled almost every night and ate on the lanai which had ocean views. It was a wonderful vacation and we hate to leave!
