Great location to view and volunteer for the Ironman! Definitely would stay again.
A very spacious apartment. The Lanai was perfect to sit and have breakfast. Excellent air conditioning. Nice to have 2 bathrooms and a washer & dryer. The parking spot is a bonus. Within walking distance to a wide range if restaurants. Also not far from a Safeway Supermarket. Would definitely recommend this apartment.
A nice clean unit, very reasonably priced, in a central location within walking distance to every place in Kailua-Kona!
Lovely condo in town on the west/church side of this small 4 story complex. We’ve stayed in many different units here over the years, love the convenience, parking garage, the sun decks with gas grills & the little swimming pool. The condo owner has made beautiful updates over the last couple years….nice kitchen remodel, ceiling fans added, and this year, freshly painted and new air conditioning! It just gets better and better :)
Good location. Nice two bathrooms and bedrooms. Thanks for the beach chairs and snorkeling gear too.
The property is old which was not projected on the site, no ocean view, the air conditioner is loud, the patio door auto locks if you close it when going out to sit, and there is a large buckling of the floor in the hallway where the baby fell twice. We booked this place because it had a pool but it was closed. The owner was nice when we talk to her.
Great central location, parking facilities.
Quiet, but easy to walk to beach and restaurants.
Communication was good with the host
Beautiful 2 bed 2bath with everything you need for a Kona vacation. Huge lanai and ALII Drive quiets down by midnight. Down at seawall by 7am to see what 's happening. Only concern about is the condensation from overhead A/C is falling and lifting laminate in hallway. Our stay was ONO
The place is great. 2 bedroom 2 bathroom and a bunch of snorkel gear is ready to go. Place has a nice large deck which is great to sit and read. Super close to grocery stores and a few public beaches. I would stay here again!
Great location and very clean
Reasonably priced for a convenient location. Great lanai! Nice pool. Couldn’t get TV to work but who had time for that until nighttime to wind down. Air conditioner was very loud unfortunately so didn’t keep it on at night. Walking distance to everything near the ocean. Wi-Fi connections not good.
Close to downtown and shopping
Location location LOCATION!!! This is amazingly tucked away on the main drive in Kona with a gorgeous view from the huge outdoor balcony. You can walk to everything within 10min. The inside is a little dated and could use some extra TLC but it’s a old building and let’s be honest you do come to Hawaii to hang out in the hotel room! It’s clean and comfortable just a little dated. We will definitely be back next time we are in Kona
The location is great. I cannot give a very good rating because lots of dust under beds, ceiling in
bathroom needs repairs due to peeling, black mold behind toilet and closet doors need repairs and painting There are cockroaches but that is not owners fault, every place we have rented in Hawaii has roaches (7 trips to Hawaii) it’s part of the tropics.
clean, comfortable, excellent location
Property needs some TLC and could be updated in some areas. Overall, it was very functional and served our family well. Clean and well-equipped. Would rent again.
We loved the location for walking. The condo is spacious & the lanai is large and feels very private. I loved looking out on the church, coconut palms, and plumeria. You are steps from Ali’i Drive and can walk to restaurants and shopping. Sunsets are gorgeous! My husband wants to stay another month.
Very well located, close to shops, restaurants and an easy walk to the beach. Host was responsive and helpful. Mahalo!
I loved the convenience and location! Very home away from home. It worked well for us! Can’t wait to come back again!
This home was very clean, comfortable and conveniently located. There are oodles of restaurants and shops within walking distance.
Having two bedrooms with TWO bathrooms was amazing! The kitchen was perfectly stocked and set-up. We adored the large, fully screened back patio. The beach gear was very well thought out, and made our beach days so enjoyable. Truly felt like a home away from home!
This property was great for myself and wife and 2 college students. There was some construction going on in the complex but noise was limited. Parking and elevator were a must for us and this unit had them. There were plenty of toys for the beach which we made good use of. Kitchen had everything that we needed. One small complaint was the air conditioning fan was a little loud. Would definitely stay there again when we want to be in the village
The property is very dated and lacks proper cleaning. There are bugs in the apartment.
Expedia should be ashamed to sell this property to its clients.
The Pro's to this stay, was the convenient location to Kona and all it's shops, restaurants and beaches. Having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for 4 adults was fantastic. It was well stocked with gear for your ocean excursions and so conveniently located so that you could cruise the island. Finally, I would recommend this property to family and friends. However, there was a few things that we were a little disappointed in, but I will follow up with the owner as it didn't hinder our vacation at all.
The apartment is in great location. Walking distance to restaurants, beach, and farms market (open on Wednesday and Sunday). The beds are comfortable.
Easy spot in central Kailua. Convenient to everything.
This was such a great location. We walked to everything in town. We really enjoyed the beach gear. The beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards and cooler made for awesome days at the beach. Thank you!
My husband, 1 year old son, and I had an awesome stay at Kona Plaza. The building is old, but the rental was perfect for us. Having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms was helpful, and we spent most of our time (especially meals) out on the super spacious Lanai. We were especially grateful that the Lanai was closed off as our son has taken to throwing everything in his path. The best part of this rental was the location. We easily could have gone without a car rental. We walked to the beach in the mornings, spent the hot afternoons across the street in the grass under the palm trees, and utilized the pool as soon as it cooled down each day. Also, super close to multiple stores which made shopping easy.
Thank you for an awesome vacation. We will definitely be looking you up for future vacations in Kona!
We had a fabulous stay at the Kona Plaza. Just walking into the unit made us feel like we were on vacation. The tropical furniture is comfortable and inviting. The full kitchen had everything we could possibly need and more. It was great to have two bedrooms and two bathrooms, no competing for closet space or shower time. It was nice to have access to everything we needed for the beach so we didn't have to pack it all, and having the washer/drier was a plus. So nice to be able to bring clean and dry clothes home.
Our favorite place was the spacious lanai. We enjoyed our morning coffee there listening to the birds and, on Sunday, the bells and singing from the church next door. In the evenings we were treated to the live music from Gertrude's down the road. When we wanted quiet, we could shut the sliders and didn't enjoy the peace.
It has air conditioning, but we only needed the low setting during the hottest part of the day. At night, there were cool breezes and since the unit doesn't face the sun, it never got overly hot.
The underground parking is great and we never had to get into a hot car. The condos have not one, but two sun decks, where you can BBQ, check out books from the little library, or enjoy the gorgeous ocean view.
As for location, you couldn't ask for more. Centrally located on the main drag, we were within walking distance of all the restaurants, bars and shops. We tried a new place every day and still didn't get to all the ones we wanted to try.
We only had one minor issue and Shane was very quick to address it and make sure it didn't impact our stay. He was great to work with.
We would definitely come here again.
Our family of three seniors stayed here for two weeks. Unfortunately while we were here, we were impacted by exterior floor resurfacing. For two days of our stay we had to leave our suite by 8 o’clock in the morning and not return until 5 PM. And there was a bit of grinding noise.
As to the actual unit, we found it to be spacious and comfortable. We especially enjoyed eating our meals and playing cards on the lanai. The suite had ceiling fans, as did the lanai, and the unit has air conditioning. I would say the air conditioner needs an overhaul as it didn’t seem to have good airflow, and it was very noisy.
Another plus about the unit, was the direction that it faced. The church was a lovely view, and the lanai was sheltered from direct sunlight. The view seemed nicer than some condos facing other directions.
We also took advantage of the view from the fourth floor sundeck on occasion, and enjoyed the pool.
As others have mentioned, the amenities had a bit of a tired feel; the beds were only supplied with two thin pillows, and the bathroom towels and mats looked tired.
There was a lot of beach gear to choose from, and the kitchen was well supplied.
For us this was a prime location, close to beaches, the Harbor, live music and many eateries. We would definitely recommend staying here.
We struck the jackpot when we found this condo! Our entire family was happy with the condo, amenities, cleanliness, spaciousness, screened in patio, view to the beach, and location. It is literally a 60 second walk to the beach and where the International Ironman race starts. And it is surrounded by shops and restaurants. Don't want to eat out? We cooked and ate most our meals in the great, full featured kitchen, dinning area and screened-in outdoor eating area. A/C works great, but we did not use it most nights as there were cool ocean breezes as we watched the sunset from the lanai. We have this place bookmarked!
We loved this condo. The location was fantastic. It’s an easy walk to everything in town. It had all the beach gear and snorkel equipment you could want. The air conditioning kept us comfortable, and everything worked. I can’t think of anything this condo lacked. There was even a little ocean view from the lanai. We would book this again, for a longer stay next time.
Owner did not let us know flooring work on floor above us was occurring then when we let her know, she refused to provide a partial refund for the days impacted (she gave us a token $25 out of over $900 paid). The noise was akin to a jackhammer (but grinding) and we were forced to leave the unit by about 8:15 am the last 3 days of our stay because the noise was intolerably loud (we had to yell to talk to each other). Also, the AC unit had a loud popping noise, so we all had to sleep with earplugs in and shut our doors. The AC had to be kept on max 24/7 but the temperature was still too warm (thank goodness for the ceiling fans). One of the sheets had several blood or wine stains or spills (the largest about 5 inches in diameter) on it when we arrived and had to be washed before using. While we were very disappointed in the noise, lack of disclosure about the construction work (the schedule was posted on the fridge when we arrived, so the owner knew about it), the unwillingness to refund, the AC noise and sheets, the unit itself was nice and has a lot of potential along with a great location. Unfortunately, we will be passing on future stays with this provider due to the customer service issues and noise.
We hoped we could have stayed longer… very spacious place in the hearth of Kona town, just next to the Church and across the Palace.
The apartment is supplied with everything you could think of, and even more, not only in the kitchen but also good quality gear for the beach. Beds were super comfy and the balcony is a treasure in the morning and at night…
Wishing we could come back sometime soon!
I had a great experience. The closet of beach gear was perfect for us. The location, secure parking and keyless entry was convenient.
Right off Ali'i Dr. , close to everything in Kona. Nice and quiet, owner is very responsive.
