About Mark Stone

My wife and I travel to Kona, 3 - 4 times a year and stay in one of our two condo's. Currently living in San Dimas, we plan on retiring in Kona in the next few years, hopefully sooner.

Mark Stone purchased this condo in 2008

Why Mark Stone chose Kailua-Kona

I take pride in Customer Service. I treat people as I would like to be treated. I am easily reached and take care of business in a timely manner. Take a moment to read my reviews, you'll see that my past guests were pleased with their service.

After visiting the other islands, we fell in love with the Big Island. The Hawaiian culture and slower pace is where we would like to retire and hang our hat. Living in Los Angeles for 50 years has worn us out. I can't imagine driving without any traffic. Where people are very friendly, you can still leave your doors unlocked and enjoy the uncrowed beaches.

Living on the Big Island is about as close as it gets to being in heaven. The weather is outstanding, tempeture perfect. I myself love sport fishing, scuba diving, boating and just about every water-sport there is making Kona a perfect place to live.

There are plenty of beachs close by and many more surrounding the Island. You just need to explorer. The underwater sealife is simply incredible, from Sea Turtles to Manta Rays, Black sand White sand beaches. If you just want some R and R, then you've came to the right place.

What makes this condo unique

This is a very exclusive Condo that has been completely remodeled. I love the master bedroom's jacuzzi tub / Travertine Walkin shower.

Great views from downstairs and upstairs master suite. Close to town and beaches. Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! The views are spectacular. You are right on the ocean. We left our master bedroom sliding door open at night (there’s a screen door and ceiling fan to keep you cool) to fall asleep to the sound of the waves coming to shore. Loved that! We were there during Thanksgiving week. It was my first time cooking Thanksgiving dinner in a kitchen other than my own. They had everything I needed to cook a great meal. We ate every meal that I cooked on the upstairs balcony table overlooking the ocean. Don’t forget to eat out too though as the restaurants in Kona are great. The best local food = Big Island Grill. The Fish Hopper was great too - and make sure you have a dessert. The key lime mango cheesecake is awesome!

The owners of this upstairs, triplex apartment also provided lots of great items for the beach - which are all close by. We started every morning with a swim and body surfing at Magic Sands State Park which is just up the street. Awesome! The apartment has a large closet with boogie boards, beach mats, beach towels, an umbrella, beach chairs, and even sun block!

The WiFi and cable were great. The apartment homey and nice. They provide AC upstairs and down in each bedroom and the kitchen, which was great for the hotter days. At night it cooled though, so open up the sliding doors and enjoy the sweet Hawaiian air.

My only suggestion for the owners is to have a pillow top mattress in the master suite. The bed was a little hard for me. My husband loved it though (isn’t that always the way?) ha ha.

It was a great week-one we will never forget. Highlights = hike up Mauna Kea overlook (elev 9,500) to watch the sunset and visit to the observatory, hikes in Hawaii Volcanos National Park, looking into the caldera and lava show at night over Kilauea, the black sand beach and watching/swimming with sea turtles, Akaka Falls hike and drives around the big island exploring places like South Point. Of course the best thing is getting in the water and enjoying snorkeling at Captain Cook and any water-related fun. Enjoy!

Wonderful home right on the water

  • 5 of 5

The place was beautifully decorated, very cozy. We appreciated the air conditioning units that really made a difference on the hot days. We loved sitting outside on the lanai and watching the fish and waves breaking. Walking distance to the town, very close drive to everywhere we went in Kona. Mattress in master bedroom was very comfortable, made for great sleep and overall great vacation. Would definitely stay here again.

Really enjoyed the rental!

  • 5 of 5

Great place, great location. Close to downtown restaurants and shops. Lots of space and wonderful views from the lanais. Kitchen well-equipped. Clean and comfortable. Also nice to have beach chairs, cooler, etc. Owners very responsive to one minor problem. No complaints, other than we couldn’t stay longer!

Its all about the view.

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. All I can say is it was fabulous. The condo is very nice, but the view is amazing. We got to watch flying fish from the lanai when the neighbors turned the ocean light on. Amazing!

It was a well equipped, lovely and perfectly located space.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated the updates to the condo, plus the use of the beach towels, cooler and blender! Loved being right at the edge of the water, listening to the surf and watching the water action, from surfers to dolphins.
