My wife and I enjoyed our stay in this cute little condo. It was perfect for the two of us and located centrally to everything we wanted to see. The kitchen was well stocked and we were able to fix meals to save some money when we did not feel like eating out. Everything was as described and communication with Pat and Allen was excellent. They answered all of our questions quickly and the check in and out process was very simple.
This condo was perfect for me and my girlfriend, and with the pull out couch would probably suit up to 4 just fine. There is a private lanai (porch) with a partial ocean view as well. The kitchen had all the dishes and cookware we needed to have a few dinners in to save on the absurd Kona restaurant costs.
The real benefit of this place is its location. It’s a mile south of the shopping area and all of the restaurants as well as the pier. It’s about 2 miles north of magic sands (a must visit beach). If you are inclined to get around by bicycle, it’s across the street from the HiBike rental station where you can rent a bike for a few bucks.
We would both definitely come back. The hosts were great and check-in/check-out was a breeze.
The condominium was very nice, and conveniently located for exploring Kona. The kitchen was nicely equipped, and the apartment was comfortable. We only turned the AC on once, otherwise, the breezes kept us cool enough. The amenities were just as advertised. We would love to return.
Nice sunsets from the pool area, and convenient for Kailua Bay shopping and restaurants. But, we were surprised that this property doesn't have a dishwasher and we were only provided a used (sour smelling) kitchen sponge and dish soap. Unfortunately most of the "clean" forks still had food residue on them. Not only was this gross, but a health hazard to my wife as she has food allergies. We ended up thoroughly pre-washing all the items we needed using paper towels. This is the first rental where we haven't been provided a new sponge or clean cloth for washing.
Great location. Lots of beach gear.
This is the perfect little spot for 2 people. It met our expectations and had everything we needed during our visit. This is our second visit to the Big Island but our first staying at Kona Shores. We were able to check- in earlier than the stated 3:00 check-in time once we communicated with the property manager. It was in the perfect location away from the busier part of Alli Dr. but an easy walk to the restaurants and shopping. The condo is very clean, and the bed is comfortable. There are plenty of stocked towels and beach towels along with supplied coolers to take to the beach and a beach umbrella. There was only one beach chair, and we could have used two. So, unless management adds another chair you may have to rent one if you don't want to sit on a towel while you are at the beach. Parking was great, as you have an assigned spot right behind the condo and it faces your patio. Just a short walk around the building and the condo is the first door. We had our days planned in detail ahead of time, so we really didn't spend much time in the condo except to shower and sleep. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice and inviting and the walkway leading out to the pool area was very charming and clean. The area is safe and quiet and has plenty of lighting at night if you arrive back from your excursions late. If you want an ocean view from your patio, this is not the place for you. You would need to be at the pool. We have stayed in ocean view condos down the way in the past and in our opinion, you don't really need that especially if you have your days planned out because you see plenty of beach/ocean on your outings. We highly recommend this property to others and would stay here again on a return visit to the Big Island.

Highly recommend this property. Exactly what we needed.
Loved this property. The pictures don’t do it justice, it looks better in person. Very comfortable for two people. Access to a pool with ocean views. Excellent for evening sunset viewing. Condo was really well Equipped with everything you need, which is very appreciated as a renter. It had ample towels and some Pantry items like salt and pepper Would definitely stay here again.

Close to most things, yet 'tucked away' in a peaceful community and somewhat away from the hustle and noise of the Kailua Kona Coast . The guest have created a nice interior decor, with tastefully decorated touch of Hawaii. Great sunset by the community’s shared pool.
Great location, great tiny wave sound. Apartment has everything you need for a wfh getaway or a week vacation getaway. The breeze through the apartment was perfect. And the proximity to Green Flash Coffee was super helpful for my West Coast time zone phone calls!
We truly enjoyed ourselves here for my boyfriend birthday. Full kitchen for cooking. The swimming pool overlooking the bay is about a minute walk away.
We rented a car and driving we were close to restaurants, beaches, a Farmer's market, bars and plenty of ABC stores.
We didn't do laundry but loved that this was an option. Laundry detergent is provided. Plenty of bath towels ave towels for the pool/beach and other equipment.
I do wish there was Netflix on the TV though. And a full length mirror. This isn't a complaint, but more so a note. We really enjoyed ourselves
We enjoyed our interaction with our host and his assistance when we reached out to him. Good location & a great time.
We enjoyed our stay and it was the perfect location. Communication with the property owner was terrific. Would highly recommend.
