Recent Kona Coast reviews

  • Tropical Oceanfront Paradise!

    "My hubby and I visited Kailua-Kona for the very first time, and were very happy with our decision to stay at this Sea Village condo. Loved the 'turtle' decor, and especially the large turtle mosaic in the center of the floor! Literally, we couldn't get any closer to the ocean! Waking up every morning to the sounds of the waves crashing the rocks below our lanai and to the smell of the fresh ocean air was amazing. We enjoyed sitting out on the lanai drinking Kona coffee and watching the boats (& dolphins) in the crystal clear blue waters. We even saw a huge cruise ship! The condo had all the amenities of home, including a washer and dryer which really came in handy. It is located just on the edge of town and only minutes away from restaurants, shops and historic sites. We drove to Volcano National Park one day and to Hilo another day (seeing the rainforest is a must!). The condo was stocked with plenty of towels, snorkel gear, DVD's, dishes, pots and pans, and lots of little extras! The bed was large and comfy, and we were happy to see there were extra pillows! The grounds were beautiful too with a nice pool/hot-tub and outdoor grilling area. We can't wait to come back again.......we already miss it. It was a great vacation. Mahalo!"

  • Perfect Place - no unpleasant surprises!

    "My husband & I stayed in this wonderful place for 25 days. I was hesitant at first to be so far away from the tourist area, but this place is truly a gem! The closest grocery store is only 1.9 miles away (right at the turn off to get to their place). Walmart is 20 min away … but they don’t sell much produce or meat. Costco is 40 min away … best prices for most things. Kona Airport is 1 hr away. The place was a great size for us. We even had friends stay with us for 1 night. I wouldn’t recommend the sofa bed (for adults) if they were using it for more than 1 or 2 nights. They do have 2 apartments in the lower level that you may be able to rent if you need to. The bed was comfortable & the bathroom was a good size (room on the counter to leave some toiletries. The internet allowed us to Skype our grandkids back home. The cable TV worked well. The kitchen had everything we needed & the BBQ was perfect. It was warm during the day & cool at night. We spent a lot of time simply reading on the veranda! Their place is centrally located. Most things were a short drive. We went snorkeling a few times. Two- Step was our favorite place - app 15 min away. The volcano was app 2 hrs away. Green Sand Beach was app 1 ½ hrs away … we paid $15/per for a ride instead of walking the 4 mile hike. The other direction was Waipio Bay (most awesome view - bring a picnic lunch) & then we swung around & saw Akaka Falls. We drove up to the Summit one evening (only as far as the Visitor’s Center as we didn’t have a 4 whl drv). Manini Beach (15 min away) was my favorite … I could watch the waves splash up on those black rocks all day long! The only problem that I had was the single-lane paved road up to their place … because we were arriving at night. But I checked it out on Google Maps & spoke to Gretchen about it. We also brought our GPS. It ended up being very easy. The only advice that I have is the same that Gretchen gave me … you need to go right to the VERY end of the road - until you get to their house. After we did it once, it was a breeze & very enjoyable. Even though you were up in the mountain it wasn’t a cliff-hanging drive! Even though we can never be promised a clear night, their place has some of the best sunsets ever! Gretchen & Vic were always close by if we needed them. They were the best hosts - so easy to talk to & very helpful. Thank you so much the coffee, banana bread, avocadoes & mostly for your wonderful hospitality. We would definitely go back!"

  • Best choice

    "This home was comfortable, beautiful, spacious, convenient, and reasonably priced with a priceless view of the ocean. For our kids, the sleeping nooks in the loft added a sense of adventure and the pool was the highlight of their trip. The prior reviews are on target on the details so we will just add that although the home is correctly listed as “not wheelchair accessible,” Grandma managed fine. There are no steps into the home from the carport and the kitchen, dining room, bedrooms and bathrooms are all on the main floor. The living room is sunken (2 steps) but we would lift her wheelchair down so Grandma could sit there or on the deck outside. Mahalo to the owners for sharing Hale Wailele. From the lei greeting on arrival to the late checkout because of a flight change and everything else in between, this home was definitely the right choice for us and we have already recommended it to friends and family!"

  • Little piece of heaven

    "Had such a peaceful time saying at this little gem. Owner Charles and his little dog Scooby has to be the perfect host. My husband and I have already decided to come back soon. We already miss this little cottage and most of all Scooby."
