                                What a great place to escape to. The crashing of the waves lulled us to sleep each night. We loved ending each day of adventure on the lanai with a drink while watching the ocean.

                                We spent four weeks at this condo in Jan 2014. The details describing this property were very accurate. The condo was clean, well maintained and cozy with excellent lighting & fans ... no need for air conditioning. We would recommend this unit and will return at some future date.

                                If your highest priority in finding a place to stay is the proximity to the water then this place can't be beat! The lanai of this ground floor condo is literally over the top of crashing surf. My wife and I stayed here from 12/9-12/16 and really enjoyed the sound of the surf and the beautiful Sunset views while sitting outside on the lanai. We also observed lots of wildlife including a breaching Humpback whale and Sea Turtles and Eels right in the natural pools that are formed in the rocky shoreline below the lanai. It was also fun to watch the locals working the waves on their boogie boards each morning. The property itself is not what I would describe as a "high-end" resort by any means but given the price point I would say that it is an excellent value. The grounds and landscaping are reasonably nice and certainly well cared for but don't expect the standards of the expensive luxury resorts. The same can be said of the individual unit. It is very nice and clean and does have some high end touches including granite countertops and a really nice big tile shower in an otherwise small bathroom. The furnishings are good and as I said before everything feels clean. The location of the property is also very good being a mile or two away from the main strip in the town of Kailua. This is very convenient for restaurants and shopping but is still far enough away from the crowds to relax. To sum it up we believe that this place is a fantastic value and if you're not interested in paying the $500+ a night for the luxury resort room this place is a great alternative and we highly recommend staying here. You can always do what we did and go visit the beautiful resorts for the day and return back to watch the sunset and crashing waves in the comfort of your own (at least for the week!) home. Just as a side note, the best activity we did on the island was going out with Kona Ocean Adventures to swim with the dolphins out in the ocean. Seriously fun experience! Look them up on Trip Advisor.

                                The view from the patio is the BEST. Morning coffee was so special watching the waves, they are so close, it's beautiful. Would highly recommend this condo and hope to come back again ourselves. I liked that it was a small complex. Grounds were nice. The condo's furnishings were good. Good location, we walked twice to town and it took 30 minutes.

                                My husband and I really enjoyed staying in this condo for a week it is nicely updated and clean and it was wonderful being right by the water and hearing the waves crash on the rocks and to sit on the lania for breakfast and watching the sunset at night. We also saw turtles every morning and some fish and sea life in the pools by the rocks. We went parasailing which was lots of fun an we did the summit stargazing tour on Mauna Kea and the Volcano tour to Mauna Loa. We went to a very nice Thai restaurant called Original Thai the food was excellent. and we also ate at Lava Java.

                                This is our third time staying in the Kona Riviera complex, but our first time in unit 102. I was very satisfied with the view and the sound of the waves is fantastic. This unit has clear visibility to a tidal pool with turtles, small fish and huge eels! It was fun to watch the variety of sea life. We also made use of the grill in the pool area to cook up some amazing swordfish! Mmmm. As for the accomodations, I found this unit very well stocked down to a screwdriver for eye glass repair (which I needed!). I was pleased that there were sufficient quantities of basic toiletries provided so we didn't have to go buy TP or other things part way through our stay (not all units in Kona Riviera are as well stocked).

                                We had a wonderful stay at this unit. The furnishings and kitchen were very nice and up to date and the lanai amazing. The pool was right around the corner and was perfect for those hot days. One of my pet peeves is having to buy new condiments and such when renting a condo but this one had lots of things we needed: lots of spices, vinegar, oil, hot chocolate, ketchup, mustard, etc... Our 12 year old had to pull out the bed every night and it was very easy to do. However, since she is a 12 year old girl she had clothes everywhere so next time we are getting a 2 bedroom. This is not a negative for the condo because there is lots of storage in the master bedroom. (our daughter is just going thru the tween phase with many costume changes throughout the day.) The bathroom is very nice with a big shower (no tub). There is no counter space but there is a medicine cabinet and it worked fine for us. Added bonus was a hairdryer. Boogie boards and umbrella too. The grounds and condo were SPOTLESS which is a big must for me. Assigned parking spot was nice as was the security of the place. I HIGHLY recommend this place for couples or a couple with a young child.

                                Our stay at this condo was 1/11/13 to 1/19/13. We loved it. We sighted whales from the lanai daily... and watching the surfers and boogie boarders was great entertainment as well. The condo is well equipped with everything you need for your stay... the owners kindly provide boogie boards too (which came in handy when snorkeling in some big surf). The bed was comfortable, but provided good support. The island provides so many different activities... beyond swimming in warm ocean water ~ there's the volcano & the crater drive, rain forests with botanical gardens (Hilo area), star gazing at the top of Mona Kea (INCREDIBLE), "riding the rim" at Waipio Valley, kayaking or just relaxing by the spring fed pool. We will definitely come back to this condo!!!

                                We had learned of this complex- Kona Riviera Villas- through a coworker. We arrived late in the evening and found this unit to be quite the hidden gem. Quiet, except for the sound of the waves, it has most private lanai of all of the other units. You cannot get any closer to the water without being wet! That first evening we went to sleep to the sound of crashing waves. The unit is very well stocked with everything one might need for a stay on the Big Island. We found many pleasant surprises when we opened the bed room closet- 2 body boards, an assortment of sun block and other toiletries, luxurious beach and bath towels and the list goes on. The caretaker of the complex, a fellow named Andy, is very helpful and welcoming. We spent many nights just sitting on the lanai watching the sunset and enjoying the relaxation that Hawaii gives. The unit is clean and confortable. My only critique, and this is because I am a Canadian, was I couldn't get the hockey game on the TV- Magic Sands Beach is two miles away to the south- about a 4 minute drive or 25 minute walk. Downtown Kona the same distance in the opposite direction. The beaches to the North- are all less than an hour away by car. Snorkelling in the front of the complex is risky as the entry into the ocean is rocky. But if you are experienced and the surf is not too high, the coral there is pristine compared to nearby Kahalu'u Snorkel Beach. But be warned the rip in front of the the Complex is strong. If the surf is high you will enjoy watching the locals surf the breaking waves nearby from the Lanai as you sip on your Mai Tai. Tired of cooking and want to treat yourself for a night out- Huggos on the Beach or next door, Huggos on the Rocks for live entertainment and dancing. Breakfast- Bongo Ben's. All these establishments are minutes away from KRV. There is a farmers market across the street and another in Kona proper. Fresh fruit and vegetables abound! If you want a clean place with a killer view in paradise, then this is for you. Oh and one last thing, the owners Cris and Bryan- very professional and helpful to deal with.

                                Your are on the ocean! Well not quite it was only 6 ft. away. The turtles are within easy site. And the Eels will entertain you. The sound of the waves are perfect. The pool is well kept. The location is a couple of miles from the main part of the town which is not a negiative. Very private setting. You cannot beat the location! The condo is the right size for two. It would be best for adults only. Overall it was very enjoyable. Parking is tight. Recommendation: It is time for a "do over". The appliances needed to be updated and the furnitature needs to be replaced.The place has much potential and needs some help. A couple of more bath towels would be great. We like clean and the cleaning folks need to pick it up a notch. On site person Andrew very helpful. Breakfast at Bongo Ben's, Dinner at Sammy Choys and drinks at the Rock. There is much to see on the Big Island. Rent a vehicle.

                              Why the Owner Chose Kona Riviera Villas:
                              Kona Riviera Villa #102 is the most private unit in the complex. Downstairs and direct oceanfront, not just oceanview from upstairs toward the middle of the complex. You will hear the sounds of the ocean not just see them from a distance.
