Recent Kona Makai reviews

    "The grounds were beautiful and maintained daily. Very accurate photo on the web site. Everything about the grounds and the property seemed accurate. It is a great location if you have a car. The description to get to the condo once you are on the property, at night was a little difficult. The master bedroom curtains are not light blocking and you do start waking up with the dawn. The downstairs ac did not always keep the loft cool enough and upstairs ac unit didn't work and the window uptairs was stuck in the open position. The kitchen sink leaked water onto the floor when you washed dishes. The property managers seem willing to fix problems but I heard the sink was leaking before we got there. I loved the Acai Bowl restaurant right down the street for breakfast. The evening dinner historic cruise was great on the Body Glove. The Luau, Lava Legends was ok but I didn't like the food. I'd try another one. Driving up country was really fun going to cute shops, macadamia nut farm, coffee farms, south point and the volcanoe. Seeing the lava at night was a great idea. Hapuna Beach was wonderful and so was Kua Bay."

  • Kona Triathlon Weekend

    "We stayed at the Kona Makai for the Ironman week and it was perfect. Great location (20min walk into town) and a good size unit to relax in before the race. We would totally recommend this unit. Thanks for the stay."

    "Wonderful condo. Clean, well stocked. We loved the oceanfront view. Watched the dolphins everyday, cruise ships coming and leaving, canoes, and beautiful sunsets right from the lanai. We will be returning next year. Owner very easy to work with."

  • Wonderful Value In a Great Location

    "My husband and I had a wonderful two weeks on the Big Island thanks to our very comfortable accommodation at #3205 Kona Makai. The condo was just as describe and credited to the owner Judith, which is why we decided to choose this condo. It sounded like a place you could just move into and start your vacation--and it was! Judith was a wonderful, caring host, whom we met very soon after we arrived because the kitchen sink had backed up and the under sink alarm had gone off. We were able to e-mail her and she came the next morning and immediately had Maintenance handling the situation. We had a lovely visit and felt well looked after. The condo is furnished very nicely with high quality linens, towels, appliances, kitchen gadgets, furniture, cutlery, dishes, barbecue utensils, small kitchen electrics and even a very nice salad spinner (which I had inquired about from home before we left). There it was! I have rented other "furnished" condo vacation rentals and this was far above the usual. We could relax and start our vacation. Perfect! The condo and property are well built and maintained as well as the pool and Jacuzzi. The 3 barbecue grills, along with ample chairs and tables and lighting make sunset dinners an easy pleasure. Note there is no glass allowed in the barbecue area--but Judith supplied a second set of plastic dishware/glasses along with a tray so that you can "get cookin" right away. We appreciated the thoughtful books, DVDs, and Big Island guides that she left in the living room. But, we REALLY appreciated the two beach chairs, beach towels, the cooler, the three boogie boards, the noodles, and snorkel gear that she left for us in the closet. The condo is also very quiet at night, which we appreciated after long drives sightseeing. We never needed the air conditioner, but did use the ceiling fans in both the living room and bedroom. The front gate lock was not functioning well during our stay, but the equipment was replaced and a new code given during the last couple of days of our stay. All in all, this condo was a very enjoyable place to stay for the two weeks. It's near everything, but has a lot to offer on its own. The sunsets are remarkable and we often saw schools of dolphins right in front. Our only regret is not having the chance to snorkel in front -several people did go in, but by the time we were ready surf was up."
