About Ann Goody

Ann & Norm Goody run the Three Ring Ranch Exotic Animal Sanctuary in Kona. For more info and how to come visit us. see the Three Ring Ranch web site.

Ann Goody purchased this condo in 2012

Why Ann Goody chose Kailua-Kona

Kona is a truly magical place we fell in love with it long ago and this building was the first I looked at. Sadly the unit I wanted sold to someone else before I could get it. Now 21 years later we finally are back at the Kona Riviera. Once you see it you will never want to leave.

What makes this condo unique

You really can travel light since this is such a well stocked unit. All the beach goodies and great books are waiting for you. Come relax!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Due to construction problems the unit was not ready when we arrived. However the owners & booking agent got us a nearby condo. The owners picked us up from the airport, drove us to the grocery store then to the alternate unit. A few days later when the repairs were done they picked us up and again drove us to the store and to the condo. It was lovely to be treated so well. It really makes a huge difference to have owners nearby and such nice people. Thank you!

Beautiful sunsets

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely little place. The view out on the balcony is amazing. Love hearing the sound of the surf all day long. We ate dinner on the balcony watching the sun set. We even saw the green flash!

A great value for the price.

Overall, a mixed bag with some pluses and quite a few minuses

  • 2 of 5

This was the least impressive condo of the many we've rented in Hawaii. First, the pros: the location is excellent and the views are fantastic. The condo has a great view of the ocean and you can hear the waves as you relax on the lanai. The kitchen is stocked well and everything is easily accessible. It's also close to the shops and restaurants in downtown Kona.

Now, the cons: the condo was definitely not clean. The couches reeked of body odor when you sat on them and the shower curtain and adjoining walls were moldy. In addition, there were bottles of "Softsoap" cleanser by each of the sinks and they smelled suspiciously like they had been filled with watered-down Palmolive dishwashing detergent. Most condos we've been in have laundry facilities. This one had a coin-op laundromat downstairs. A major hassle! The air-conditioner was a portable unit propped up on a dining chair in the bedroom! We didn't use it much as the weather was fine but there was a notice stating the user would have to empty the water trough periodically if used continuously. Another hassle! Finally, the lanai, although offering a great view, was a walk-through lanai for the other condos on the same level. Thus, no privacy!

With a thorough cleaning and new furniture, this place would be fantastic! As it is, I'm sorry to say we can't recommend it.

Owner's Response: Aloha! Yes, the view is really amazing from this condo!! I wanted to respond regarding your comments. First, we do steam clean our furniture regularly. It's possible a guest sat on the couch wet from the ocean. We try to encourage guests to never do that! Anyway, we have steam cleaned it since your visit. Also, because of intense humidity, we do change our shower curtains regularly. And it has been changed. On the A/C, I have no idea why it was on a chair! It has a stand that it sits on. As far as lanai, there can only be one person who would walk by; the next door condo. But they can exit another way so I'm not sure why they would walk by. We have talked to our manager about that. So, we hope we have been proactive enough on your concerns! Mahalo,

We had a great time there

  • 4 of 5

The condo has a great location near Kona beach, it is clean and have wonderful sea view. We found ourselves at home when I found such a full kitchen. We enjoyed ourselves staying in this place. The only thing to note: the electric fan does not work in the living room, but it does not affect us too much as we were out during most of the daytime.

A Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I were so lucky to get a few nights when someone had to check out early. We wanted a kitchen rather than a hotel room we had and this kitchen is 5 stars. What a lovely little condo, everything was new, linen, towels, rugs-great timing for us! We met the owner when she brought down a couple of new cooking utensils and she was very friendly. She shared a wealth f information about Kona from a long time resident's perspective.

The view is excellent. There is a roof on the ocean side of the building but it is painted light but you see the ocean over it and if you sit on the lanai (they have tall seats around the lanai table) looking a little north you look right at the waves and the shore. I read the reviews and someone complained about the roof but for us it was not an issue. The photos on the listing give you a great idea of what you actually see. I think it is better than shown in some photos but everyone should look at the pictures to see it. Some people will not like it but others like us won't care a bit.

The bedroom has new drapes that close up and make t really dark. I napped after flying n for a few hours mid-day and that was great to get off the "jet-lag" feeling. The A/C is one of those in the room kind, it was very strong and I only used it in that first afternoon. The building is old so what you see from the street is not great but once you come inside the security gate that feeling is gone. The gardens are nice with tropical plantings (orchids even blooming in December!) the pool is lovely and the BBQ is a great amenity. We only saw a few people on the deck at any one time so it was pretty private and had that "exclusive" feeling. My only complaint is that we could not stay longer! We will return next year and tell friends about this little gem.
