Recent Kona Coast reviews

  • Heaven on Earth

    "My husband and I stayed 11 nights in the Jungle Cottage early February 2014. All that really needs to be said is: it is a little piece of paradise! We stayed in a couple of other hotel/B&B as well during our stay on the Big Island, and none of them, nor other places we looked into staying at, remotely compared to the accommodation at Bwana Bob. The cottages there are surrounded by lush vegetation and have a beautiful ocean view; it is extremely peaceful and one feels far away from civilization and lost in the jungle yet Kona is just a few miles away. "Our" Jungle Cottage was so cozy and so romantic, very clean - there could not have been a more perfect place to spend our honeymoon! Upon check-in, I was amazed to find absolutely everything we needed: a kitchen stocked with all the essentials, soaps and shampoos, bath and beach towels, beach mats, folding chairs, snorkeling gear, ice cooler, and yes, even an umbrella! Not to mention a pound of the delicious Bwana Bob coffee, and fresh fruit including the sweetest pineapple! In the cottage there is also a TV, DVDs, videos, magazines, guides, maps - and the list goes on. The highlight of my stay at the Jungle Cottage was being able to pick fruit from the fruit trees in the garden: nothing like starting your day with juice from freshly picked oranges or juicy mangoes and fleshy bananas! Our hosts were absolutely wonderful! They are so friendly and bent over backwards to make our stay as fantastic as possible. We witnessed the coffee roasting process. Well, you haven't lived until you have seen Steve's Roast O Rama and the place where he does it! Fascinating! I could have spent hours in his workshop studying all the machines and robots and gadgets and tackle and apparatuses and equipment! Something to tell your grandchildren about, lol! That coffee roasting process if a must-see, so is Bwana Bob's accommodation! I highly recommend it to anyone spending any time at all on the Big Island! And should I go back to Hawaii, this is definitely where I will want to stay! Thank you Susan and Steve, for sharing your paradise with us!"

  • kona holiday

    "are stay in kona was great. the condo was not very clean when we got there. the floor was filthy if you walked on the floor in bare feet, the bottom of your feet black. we found a big bug in one bedroom and had to move a bed under the bed had dust from years. there was a pair of glasses and a bracelet,also a mouth guard. so the wife spent two hours cleaning the whole place. other than the screen door not fitting properly to keep the bugs out. the rest of the place was fine. I would rent the condo again if I had a guarantee it was clean. wally"

  • AMAZING HOUSE!!!

    "Best week EVER!!! Not only is this house across the street from an awesome snorkeling beach, but it's perfectly comfortable for 2-3 people. The kitchen is very modern and has everything you need with all accessories available. There's a nice big flat screen tv just off the kitchen as well as in the bedroom. There's a nice patio that you can eat outside while watching the surfers. There's also a little office nook with a desk that you can work on your laptop while watching ocean views. Just 4 miles down the road, there's a ton of shops and restaurants with live music on the weekends. I can't wait for my next trip!!"

  • Very Nice!

    "Very Nice condo, clean, quiet, comfortable and with everything needed for a relaxing stay. So nice to have a washer and dryer in the unit too. Beautiful ocean view from the large lanai and a short walk to the bay where there are activities and kayaks and paddle boards to rent. I would stay here again for sure!"

Kona Coast Travel Tips

Kona Coast Resorts Offer the Best Weather

Even if you have never been to the Kona Coast on Hawaii’s Big Island, you have probably heard of it. Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, as it is called by Native Hawaiians, is most well known for the Kona coffee produced there. To reach Kona Coast resorts, you will need a flight into Honolulu and a rental car. Kona Coast condos are on the leeward side of Mauna Loa, which provides perfect weather throughout the year for snorkeling, diving, and sunbathing. Each morning, you may decide to wake up to enjoy a Kona coffee at your Big Island vacation rentals while watching for dolphins or sea turtles from the balcony.

Kona Coast Condos near the Atlantis Submarine Tour

Chances are very good that your Kona Coast condos will be on the beach, making it easier for you to snorkel or scuba dive. However, you may want to sign up for a boat dive or tour of the coast to explore more of the tropical elements Hawaii can offer you. Deep sea fishing tours are also offered near Big Island vacation rentals. If you are feeling truly adventurous for watery fun, book an Atlantis Submarine. The dock the submarines leave from is a short walk from Kona Coast resorts. An hour-long tour on the underwater submarine gives you an educational experience that covers the coral reefs, tropical fish, and other marine animals.

Big Island Vacation Rentals Tell Tales of Captain Cook

Twelve miles south of Kona Coast condos, you'll find Kealakekua Bay which is the site of Captain Cook’s death. Captain James Cook died in 1779, a year after he found the Hawaiian Islands. Cook was the first British explorer to reach the area, but a skirmish with Native Hawaiians caused his death. When you leave Big Island vacation rentals for a day of fun, you can explore the bay which is a Marine Life Conservation area. Often Spinner dolphins, tropical fish, and coral can be seen when diving or kayaking in the bay.

Kona Coast Resorts near the Lawbreakers Refuge

For a day trip away from Kona Coast resorts, consider Puuhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park. South of Kona you will find 180 acres of national park that was once a refuge for ancient Hawaiian lawbreakers. The only chance of survival for many was to make it to the park and form their own society. Today, you can visit the Great Wall, wooden images of gods, and black lava rock shoreline.
