"We had an terrific time at Hale Kona Kai. We needed last minute accommodations and the staff was very helpful - put us in two different units to complete our stay. The location is excellent, an easy walk to shops and restaurants. The local information that Adeline provided was very helpful. And as others have mentioned, watching the sun set over the ocean from the lanai is truly memorable."

"“Amazing” is the best way to explain me and my husband’s stay in Kona, HI at the beautiful and cozy condo that overlooks the ocean! From the sound of the crashing waves through the night to waking up to gorgeous sunrises while sipping my coffee on the balcony with my feet up on the railing looking out at the ocean….our stay at the condo was PERFECT. The condo offers a full kitchen with all appliances and amenities that we needed to cook meals daily, wash clothes, dishwasher, pots, pans and silverware. The condo also has beach chairs and snorkel gear on hand so that it’s easy to pack in the car and head to the beach for the day. The bed was soooo cozy and comfortable, I think me and my husband got some of our best sleep there! The condo was clean and fully stocked with every item we could possibly need! Needless to say, as I’m wiring this I wish we were back at the condo in Hawaii. Enjoy your stay! You’ll be so grateful you selected this location!"

"Spent five nights at Ann's condo and could hardly have been happier. It is clean, quiet and comfortable, and is perfectly located with a wonderful view of the ocean and sunsets. The condo contained nearly everything I could have needed during my stay.
Just three recommendations to make the place even better:
1- Do not leave the A/C cover on A/C unit for guests' arrival - may create confusion and guests could potentially damage the A/C unit. There are instructions on the wall near the A/C remote but I only read the instructions provided on the fridge. Alternatively, provide ALL relevant instructions on one piece of paper or in one document;
2- Leave enough laundry detergent for guests to do at least a couple of loads. There was plenty of dish soap but no laundry detergent provided, so I had to buy a large bottle and left it almost full, I hope it can be used by future guests;
3- Sofa bed was very uncomfortable when used as a bed - I would either discourage people from using it that way, or else replace it with something usable.
The toilet was leaking when I arrived, I called the property manager and someone came the very same day and fixed the issue.
Very happy with my experience and hope to return in the future. Thank you again Ann! :-)"

"We were married in Hawaii 25 years ago, and over the years we have spent time on Maui, Kauai and the Big Island. This year, we wanted a special getaway as we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We came across this adorable cottage and from our very first phone call to Sidnie, we felt the Aloha spirit! That spirit continued to grow during our 7-night stay at this charming property.
From the moment we stepped inside the cottage, we felt relaxed and at peace. The room was attractive and impeccably clean. A beach blanket and two bathrobes were among the standard provisions, which we thought was a nice touch. We enjoyed seeing roosters and chickens on our daily walk, and then greeting Sam and the horses when we returned. The panoramic view was beautiful as we sat on the porch having breakfast, or even sitting at the table inside. We thoroughly enjoyed the privacy and quiet in our standalone cottage – and slept so much better than in a condo or hotel room! We equally enjoyed the welcoming, yet unimposing, hospitality of Sidnie and Wayne, along with their wonderful friend Annette who was visiting them. All in all, terrific hosts, excellent accommodations and a serene location! It was, indeed, a very special getaway! Thank you Sidnie, Wayne and Annette for everything!"
