Well set up condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo was beautifully kept and ready for a renter, it was very central to all things in Kona and had a lovely view.

Wonderful Unit!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our Kona vacation and I simply cannot say enough good things about the property. The unit is very well equipped and maintained with everything you need for a romantic getaway. The owners provided towels, coolers and everything you need for the beach too!!

The complex is right on the ocean and the view from the balcony is diving, I could sit for hours watching the waves crash on the rocks. The complex in located just a short walk from Kona town so everything is easy to get to , restaurants, shopping it's all there. The great thing is that the location is close enough that everything is easy to get to, but set in a perfect location for peace and quiet. We liked it so much that we rebooked the unit for our upcoming trip this June, can't wait!!

We loved Unit 311 at Hale Kona Kai

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a 7 day stay in this unit, and we have difficulty understanding the only other review of this property. We have been to Kona

several times in the past and always were impressed by this property's nice lanai's and proximity to the ocean, so this year we booked unit 311 at HKK. Granted, this unit does not face the ocean directly, but it does have a wonderful ocean view, as well as of the neighboring lagoon and ceremonial grounds of the Royal Kona Resort. Let me point out a major advantage of this unit....the condo and lanai do not get the direct afternoon sun that the west-facing properties get, so afternoons on the lanai are much more pleasant, and the condo stays much cooler without the direct sun. This property exceeded our expectations in all areas. The decor is very nice and contributes to the Hawaiian experience. The owner provides amenities such as nice beach chairs instead of the usual woven beach mats, a blender for afternoon drinks on the lanai, and central A/C in the unit....which is far better than the typical single window unit in most condos. We

thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this unit and we are already talking about another trip next year, hopefully for a 30 day stay. Kona is our favorite Hawaii location and we plan to return to Hale Kona Kai.

This is ocean view, not ocean front, as advertised. You only have about a 40-45 degree view of ocean. Straight out from the unit sits the Kona Royal Resort. The picture they posted implies that it is a corner unit when in fact it is not. Terminex sprayed inside the unit while we were there which isn't a pleasant vacation experience. It is close to town and is a nice unit otherwise. Just be aware of what you are paying for.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that a guest is not 100% happy with our accomodations as we have prided ourselves for 9 years to not only please but to wow our guests. We know we can't please everyone, but it is still disappointing. Our unit IS oceanfront and has closer to a 90-degree view of open ocean and lagoon activity between us and the Royal Kona Resort. We haven't kept our unit booked with repeat and very happy guests by ever implying we have a corner unit and when Terminex shows up (the smell dissipates in about 10 minutes), that means your unit is kept bug-free and clean as a whistle. Yes, you should always be aware of what you are paying for, and we are quite confident that we offer an excellent oceanfront experience in Hawaii at today's bargain rates. Toni B.

About Toni Brehm

I've been coming to the Big Island for over 45 years and my late husband and I finally decided to buy a small piece of Paradise! It is a very special place and we love sharing it with our guests, many of them repeaters, who enjoy many great memories from their time at HKK 311!

Toni Brehm purchased this condo in 2003
