About Greg and Carol Guile

We are long time Oregonians. We've been to the other islands and didn't like the crowds, so we visited the Big Island and loved the laid back, friendly, Aloha atmosphere. Hawaii is a great escape from the Oregon weather.

Greg and Carol Guile purchased this condo in 2014

Why Greg and Carol Guile chose Kailua-Kona

We searched for a vacation investment property on the Big Island because we enjoy its laid back lifestyle. We searched many complexes and found ourselves continually being drawn back to Kona Makai because of its extensive landscaping, pool, ocean front, tennis, ping pong, amenities, and up front sunset views

What makes this condo unique

Only complex I know with ping pong, BBQ and the pool all with an ocean view!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Relaxing stay. All the conveniences of home including washer/dryer and a dish washer. Enjoyed cooking down by the pool and visiting with other guests/residents as we watched the sunset each night. We heard that the snorkeling is great at the shore access by the pool, but the surf seemed rough for us beginners. Only negative was the walk uphill to the parking lot (luggage, groceries, gear, etc). There are a couple of wagons available to borrow to assist with carrying heavy items. Having air conditioning was wonderful since we are used to a cooler climate (Oregon). Such a relief to sleep in a cool bedroom. The lanai is nice for coffee in the morning. The gardens are lush and beautiful and attract lots of birds and a few geckos. Made for great pictures. Couch is not a futon but still a comfortable bed. Very helpful and responsive owner. Plan to come back next year.

Awesome! Very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying in this condominium the third week of September. The unit was super comfortable and well equipped with all the needed amenities for a great vacation. When I arrived, the unit was very clean and set up with all the comfort of my own home! I will definitely be returning to the island of Hawaii and renting this unit again. I highly recommend this unit.

Wonderful! #3-102

  • 5 of 5

We came to Kona and stayed for a week, such a great trip and awesome condo to stay in! The lani had a really pretty view of the ocean. If you're a walker, it's only about a mile to walk into town! We used the BBQ plenty of times while we were there and the ocean is right at your feet. Super a beautiful view and area all around. I can't wait to return. Thank you #3-102 for letting us stay in your home away from home!

Great place for relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a great base of operations for an exciting Big Island vacation. Easy walking distance to downtown Kona and it's abundance of restaurants and nightlife. Checkin/checkout process was easy, and the condo was stocked with everything we needed for a week long stay. Beach towels and chairs were provided, which was useful for visiting the many gorgeous beaches within easy walking/driving distance of the condo. Will definitely be back!

Great Big Island experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas through New Years at this property, and it was a fantastic experience. The condo was well stocked with everything needed to be comfortable for a week. The fully stocked kitchens and communal bbq area made prepping and eating dinners easy and enjoyable. The condo (and entire complex) was quiet and peaceful. Easy walking access to restaurants/nightlife in town, and a quick drive to several awesome beaches for snorkeling. Would definitely stay here again!
