Absolute oceanfront! Hear the waves and watch the sea from this corner unit condo on the 3rd floor.

The living room is furnished with seating around a TV, and comes with access to a private lanai with amazing ocean views. Sit out here and enjoy your morning Kona coffee! There is a portable AC in the living room that only keeps the living area cool (it is not strong enough to reach the kitchen or bedroom).

The kitchen comes equipped with a dishwasher, drip coffee maker, toaster, microwave, and more. If you don't feel like cooking, hit the town and try the famous Hawaii poke or BBQ.

The bedroom holds a King bed, great for couples! The full bathroom in the hallway has a shower/tub combo.

There is 1 assigned parking spot. A washer and dryer are included in the unit.

Unit has a portable AC unit in the living room and ceiling fan in the bedroom. Not central AC.

The location was perfect. It was wonderful to hear and see the ocean right in our backyard. The complex was comfortable and well laid out. It was quiet and neighbors were friendly. The location to restaurants and other activities was very good. There are three floors to the complex so be prepared to bring up luggage on the stairs.

This was our second stay at Kona Isle, our first in this unit. As others have noted the direct water view is the highlight and reason for staying here. The unit itself is a mixed bag; relatively clean and well stocked but there are several needed updates; carpet is very dirty, dishwasher unusable due to rust and clogged filter (which my husband attempted to clean), and furniture is old. There is no roll down shade on the deck for the afternoon sun which all other west facing units have. The complex itself is a bit worse for wear but the pool and common areas are very nice and well maintained. Probably will not return.

Property was very quiet which we enjoyed but it does get quite warm during the day. Once the sun went down it was easy enough to cool off the bedroom, but the single portable ac unit is not enough for the condo.

+ The Good + We stayed in early Feb and saw SO MANY WHALES from the lanai. We'd see the whale watch boats park right in front of the condo complex to whale watch. Bring a pair of binoculars or pick up a $13 pair from Walmart. Condo was well stocked with the little things that make stays more homey - full sized shampoo+body wash, a few spices and olive oil, appropriate amount of dish soap, laundry detergent, hand soap, etc. Charming decor - prints of underwater photos taken by the owner! - Issues - For 3 days we had to flee the premises because loud power tools were being used to replace the pool fence. This was frustrating since we'd booked a unit that we could watch the ocean from, and if we'd gotten advanced notice from the management company (we got no notice at all) we would've picked those days to go around the island. As others note, AC doesn't reach bedroom. Needs one more box fan to move chilled air to bedroom. Lanai table is too big, need to replace w/ a half-round. The management company was very responsive when we reported issues w/ the keycombo entrance. It'd sometimes randomly error out after entering the correct combo and before hitting the "check mark" button that completed the key entry process. (Keypad entries are remotely monitored by the management company.) They sent someone to replace the battery, but the issue persisted. Please, please, please, your keycombo setup isn't working - go to the usual lockbox with regular key that most places use!!

We vacationed in January and enjoyed the 70-80 F weather with cooling breezes. As others have mentioned in reviews, the air conditioning unit in the front room will not sufficiently cool the back bedroom; but we were comfortable this time of year with opening windows (although some aren't functional but will maybe be fixed?) and using the ceiling fan. We found Grand Welcome responsive to our needs and have already booked this unit for next year. (Note that there IS a washer and dryer in the unit. Also note that the parking space is next to #17; it's not sequentially found.). You can't beat the view from the balcony: we saw spinner dolphins and humpback whales, and you can hear the ocean 24 hours a day. The property is well maintained, clean, and quiet. Enjoy your stay!

Beautiful waves and sunsets. Very comfortable. We’d be happy to stay there again.

This was our first time staying at a VRBO rather than a hotel and we have mixed reviews. The parking spot was really hard to find, the access into the unit had to be input multiple times for it to work. The unit itself was very dated but had what we needed. The shower could use a curved shower rod to make it feel bigger. The old rod must have broke and pieces of it are still on the wall (not sure why it hasn’t been taken down - looks terrible). There was dust all over the bathroom walls from the ceiling fan which I know was not just from our stay. The towels were very nice. There is way too much furniture on the lanai so we had to put some in the unit so we could move around. The kitchen was nicely remodeled and had everything you need. The carpet isn’t ideal for a beach rental and felt dirty. The views were incredible and the pool is nice. Location was perfect for walking into town to grab a bite to eat.

Everything was nice and clean. Mant inclusions! Nice experience!

Way too hot in the back area, but the mattress was good. Carpet is older and holds odors from not being very clean. We got the general feeling that it was dated and cluttered with too much stuff. But, the property is good, as is the view. For the price…

Our condo had all the things we needed for a relaxing stay - full kitchen , washer/dryer, ac and beautiful views of the sunset every evening from the balcony! The only downside was the communication with the property manager Grand Welcome when confirming our upcoming stay. We kept getting different reps and they sent a a confirmation email for an entirely different condo complex which we eventually sorted out, but was it was a little stressful initially .

Condo was exactly what I expected from looking at the pictures. The view from the lanai was awesome. I would definitely stay here again. Super convenient being next to a convenience store and only about a 25 minute walk from town.
