Great location, great layout, great views!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has everything you need in a location that is just the right distance from town. It's perfect for viewing sunsets (we saw the green flash from our balcony!). There are three gas grills in a common area by the pool. We did not use the pool but there were always people relaxing around it. The grounds are clean and lush. The condo itself has everything you need and is very well laid out and clean. Be sure to look through all the closets because there are A lot of closets and you'll find most anything you need to enjoy time at the beach. Robert was very responsive to the small issues that arose. He came and fixed a leak under the sink and also brought a coffee grinder when we mentioned the one in the condo was broken. He provided outstanding service and very promptly. I will happily recommend this property to everyone. Stay here; you won't regret it!

New owners took over right before our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was a little tired feeling upon arrival but the new owners jumped in and put in new beds, linens and TV within 2 days while we were there and were going to upgrade the other furniture after our stay. It will definitely be ready to go after they finish. It has a great view of the ocean and with 2 bedrooms plus the loft can easily accommodate a family. We absolutely love the Kona Makai and will definitely stay here again.

Wonderful stay at the Kona Refuge at Kona Makai.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Kona Refuge at Kona Makai. The condo was comfortable, spacious, well appointed, and well stocked with kitchen implements. The grounds of the Kona Makai complex were meticulously cared for. There was easy access to the pool area and sitting area overlooking the rocks and water. Sitting area was great for watching the sunset and pods of dolphins swimming by in the mornings. We did have a couple of minor issues when we first arrived; but, the owner, complex manager, and agent immediately took cares of those issues. This was a good sign they care about their visitors and the accommodations.

Great condo for a Hawaiian getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the condo as a group of 6 and had a great stay. The only regret I have is lugging a bike bag up the stairs (no elevator) myself - so please be cautioned if you pack large suitcases (with no help to carry them) or have accessibility issues. Otherwise, it was very clean and well stocked with all the vacation basics. The kitchen was used often - you'll find everything you need. The location is great, just off the main Ali'i strip and has shoreline access! Would definitely stay there again if I'm on the Big Island.
