About Mark Stone

Married 35 years, two children, two grandchildren, 5 dogs. 2 goats, 3 Macaws, and a few other critters.

Throughout the years and having visited the Islands of Hawaii, we fell in love with the Big Island. In 2008 we purchased Kona Luana, units 2 and three, a unique oceanfront, 3 unit condominium.

The Hawaiian beaches, beautiful scenery, Polynesian culture and slower pace is what we fell in love with.

Imagine driving without traffic, where people are very friendly, the beaches are breathtaking and not over crowded, the sunsets are spectacular, weather is always outstanding. The Hawaiian Islands claim 8 - 11 of the worlds 14 climate zones.

Living on the Big Island is about as close as it gets to being in heaven. A place we hope to visit often and retire too soon.

Mark Stone purchased this condo in 2008

Great views, great location. Spent a week here with my wife and daughter. The bed was very comfy.

  • 5 of 5

Mark the owner was very quick to respond to any questions I had. We really enjoyed all the amenities, including the bbq grill. The kitchen is fully equipped . I loved the washer and dryer. I washed on a daily basis, you can’t do that in a hotel. Very nice overall.

Right on the ocean! Dolphins every day. Soothing sounds of surf.

  • 5 of 5

Great space; lots of room, comfortable & clean. Loved that it was 2 levels, with bedrooms upstairs.

Walking distance to Kailua-Kona town and good food, outdoor markets, interesting shops & historical landmarks, etc. Short drive to good snorkeling areas & walking distance to Hon’ls Beach, a nice sandy stretch with some shade trees. We were welcomed by Chris who gave us a lot of good info. Felt immediately at home & will return if we can.

Perception is better than reality. We would not stay in this condo again.

  • 2 of 5

The condo we stayed in on Alii Drive looked wonderful in the on-line pictures. However, reality wasn't quite the same as perception. Although the location was good, the interior of the condo was dated and the A/C units were dirty and we had to shut them off after the first night because we were all coughing in the mornings. There was evidence of ants and we sealed all of our snack items and didn't eat a meal there. We saw many dead winged insects that I photographed and had to sweep up every morning. We are guessing they were termites because we saw evidence of termite damage in the second bedroom closet floor. On the last night there, we found a cockroach on the kitchen counter. It was as big as my forefinger. We did contact the owner and report this because none of the four of us have not encountered one in any vacation rental or hotel at any time in the past 10 years in any warm climate in the USA. The owner said that although he had the condo fumigated a few months earlier, he would do so again. We stayed in Kona in 2015 and never saw a single cockroach. I waited to write this review until after our VRBO stay on Maui the following week. The condos were comparable in price (less than $100 difference), size, and they were both 2 BR, 2 BA, and both were on the ocean. However, the second condo which was contracted by the friends with whom we stayed in Kona, was many times better than this one with no evidence of insects or insect damage. That condo was also rented through VRBO. None of the four of us would stay in this particular Kona condo again.

Owner's Response: If you leave the sliding glass doors open and do not have the screens fully closed, insects will get in. This unit is so close to the water, I'm surprised he didn't complain about seeing to many dolphins or Whales.I just purchased the new A/C less than 2 years ago, by the way, who uses the A/C in March?, I have the condominium sprayed quarterly.
