Recent Kona Pacific Reviews

We had a great visit to Kona. The condo was clean, conveniently located, and comfortable. Short walk to Kailua-Kona, short walk to Honl’s Beach for sunsets, kitchen was stocked with cookware and dishes, beach gear available to use, washer and dryer were nice to have, and the pool and ground da were well kept and felt safe. Parking a full size car in the assigned spot was difficult but manageable. Overall, this was a great place to stay and we would stay here again.

It needed updated, the washing machine and dryer didn't work properly, (Was rusted and dryer only worked on high) and the road that faced the condo had traffic going by continually so we couldn't use the Lina. TV was hard to use as noisy. I tried to go ahold of the property office as one of the cupboard doors would't close so we had put tape on to close. Wasn't well stocked we had to buy essential things needed.. We have had success in renting for yrs and we would not use the Property outfit again. Disappointed with condo and Property people. They're office is in Hilo... hr away. When did get ahold of them it said Hilo

We were part of a group of 13 ( 3 condos rented ) all family members. Our plan was to spread my Mother's and my Sister's ashes in Kona which was my Mother's favorite island. My immediate family of 3 were lucky enough to have stayed at this condo the property was amazing. Within walking distance of town, restaurants, and most important the ocean. Our view was fantastic. We appreciated all of the beach goodies available at the condo including ice chest, beach towels, sun screen, beach chairs, etc. The condo was beautifully decorated. Carpets looked brand new. The condo included everything that you would need at a vacation rental making our stay very comfortable. Thank You so much.

The condo is tastefully decorated and comes with many amenities (various kitchen appliances, books and board games). We enjoyed the pool and bbq’d there a few times. We enjoyed the use of beach chairs, cooler and boogie boards on the beach. Conveniently located. (Parking spot IS for compact car)

The condo is great! It’s clean and bright and beautiful. The kitchen is well equipped. We ate only once at a restaurant. The rest of our 10 day stay we ate on the lanai with its great views and beautiful sunsets. We highly recommend this condo complex and this condo in particular. The pool was awesome, too!

Reviewer Comments: We were disappointed during the first week with the pool being under maintenance, but we spent a lot of time enjoying the lanai especially enjoying the fan out there. The parking spot was super convenient. We very much enjoyed our stay. It might be time to consider replacing the indoor/outdoor carpet on the living room lanai.

Great location for our family. Close to town, large accommodation. There were many beach items available and pool items available for use if needed. The lanai was wonderful to sit and watch the water. The beds were comfortable. Our only disappointments were that the pool was having an upgrade maintenance for half of our stay. Would absolutely recommend this unit for a family

Can walk to all restaurants and shops on Ali’i dr. Place had everything needed and then some. Only missing snorkel gear. It was in the photos. Maybe add an umbrella? Cooler was handy and so were the beach chairs. AC was definitely nice to have. Pool and lounge area is beautiful. We would for sure stay here again. Host is easy to get in contact with and super fast to reply. Mahalo!!!!
March 2024

We should have been notified the pool would be closed for most of our visit. We expected it to be available and it was unfair to pay for a complex with a pool and not get one. Unit was OK, definitely needs modernization.

We had a great stay at Kona Pacific. The condo was fully equipped. It was walking distance to restaurants. The complex is quiet and the underground parking was a plus. The pool and grill area are nice. The pool was closed for 1 week while we were there which we did not fiind out until after we booked the unit but it gave us the chance to explore the island beaches. We Appreciated all the recreational equipment especially the beach chairs, boogie board and umbrella. All in all a great stay.

We had a problem with a TV and Host solved the problem the next day. We were not too happy either wooden benches at the counter because your knees wouldn’t fit under the counter so you had sit sideways. There was not a sharp knife to cut Pineapple.

The condo was exactly as portrayed in the listing. It was very clean, and the kitchen was well equipped. The location is excellent: walking distance to Ali'i drive, yet removed enough to avoid the crowds and traffic noise. It's easy to get to beaches and other locations both north and south. We appreciated the beach chairs and umbrella, etc. Highly recommend!

Arrived at 1:30 am. Opened the door to an awful odour. Condo is old and smells. Furniture and carpets smell and need cleaning or replacement. Needs thorough deep cleaning. Management Company is aware. Location is great, within walking distance to downtown Kona. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay.

Carpet stained, sliding doors to bedroom and bathroom do not work very hard to open or close, Electrical switches to fans do not work, bathroom fan sounds like a semi trailer is running . Overall this place needs a make over it is in need of a major overhaul. Location is good.

We like the location of the condo as it is within easy walking distance to downtown Kona. The condo was clean and recently refurbished. Quiet building. Very satisfied with the unit.
January 2024

Pros-Close to DT Kona and Coconut Grove/kitchen is well equipped/pool is nice/good parking/managers are responsive and will fix immediate problems. Cons-Bedroom and living area are is dark-overhead lighting and fan needed/mattresses are uncomfortable/refrigerator leaks-signs of rust/washing machine is rusted through/lots of traffic noise-even with A/C on. There is no storage drawers or shelves for your stuff-the place is filled with the owner's belongings. Heavy Fibreez odor on arrival. Walls dirty and old nails/hangers-needs painting/loose chair leg on one chair needs tightening/remote control for rear gate does not work. CAUTION: The walkway out front has no height transition from concrete to tiles-significant tripping hazard!!

Great. Two things I wished for but could not make happen. Hot tub and to hear the waves at night

My wife, her two adult daughters and I stayed here for 4 nights in January 2024. The best thing about this property is the location which is excellent. It is close to and walking distance to restaurants, stores and the waterfront. We also attended the Voyagers of the Pacific Luau at the Royal Kona Resort just across the street. Ali’i Street a few yards away has a bike path on both sides and is a great place to go running. A short half mile walk south on Ali’i street is Hon’l beach which has a small sandy beach a shaded grass area and toilet and shower facilities. Another beach close by about four miles south is Magic Sands Beach which has parking and shower/toilet facilities. I gave four stars for the check-in because the management company Knutson & Associates has strict instructions regarding the stay but the condo was not ready for us at 4:00 pm. I understand that some circumstances are beyond their control and they did do their best to compensate us for the inconvenience. The condo is clean and comfortable with three full bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. The door to the MB bathroom was broken but they promptly had it fixed the next day. The living room and bedrooms had window air conditioning units which some reviews had complained about the noise and sometimes when it cycled on in the MB it did wake me but it made the climate more comfortable to sleep. We walked everywhere to eat at night. Overall it is a great place to stay with oceans views from the lanai.

Had a wonderful time enjoying this accommodation for a ten day stay. Close enough to walk to many places and helpful to have assigned parking for the unit so we could have a rental car to do day trips
