About Claudia & Jim Shukle

We have been coming to Kona for 20+ years, we are both avid scuba divers and also love to snorkel. This island is great for shore diving, plus there are several dive shops that have boats for those that like boat diving. We had looked for a condo in this complex for a long time and finally found the one we wanted. The unit has a great view of the ocean and the BBQ's are close, . The unit is stocked with just about anything you need to make meals.

The island of Hawaii is large and has a lot to see, you will need a car to get around, though some people have rented from us and just walked to town or taken the little trolley bus that goes by our condo on Alii Dr. everyday. There is a guide book in the unit that gives good directions to beaches and all the attractions that the Big Island has to offer. The volcano and all the tropical water falls are on the other side of the island. We also own a unit in building #3 on the 2nd floor and it is also listed on VRBO.

Claudia & Jim Shukle purchased this condo in 2013

This is a great place to stay and a great location

  • 4 of 5

We found this location perfect for us! We traveled the entire island and think that it was a good base. It worked out well to have a grill available for cooking and we enjoyed the pool & hot tub daily. The ocean view and hearing it each day was fantastic!!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I am an owner at Kona Makai, and I rented this condo for my stepdaughter and her partner when we were over in September. The condo was very well maintained, had everything needed, and they loved their stay. Reasonable price and very responsive owners. Highly recommended.

Great place and came as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Near to town. The apartment was well set up with a great view of the courtyard and ocean in front. Claudia was very responsive to questions and offered us lots of suggestions about activities. I would highly recommend this to anyone staying in the Kona area.

Beautiful, quiet Kona Makai

  • 5 of 5

Condo is located on a quiet area on Alii Drive. Ten miles away from the Kona Airport, about 5 mns away from Downtown Kona where you can find some nice Restaurants, some of our favorite ones are: Humpys, Island Lava Java, Bubba Gump, Fish Hopper, Pancho & Lefty's, On the Rocks, Splashers, Laverne's, Get Sum Pizza (large pie $18.00 dollars/delicious) & the Kona Brewing Co. Pub. Some nice beaches near by: Magic Sands, Kailua Bay, Kamakahonu Beach and Kahaluu Beach Park (not a big fan of this last one) other very nice beaches (bigger) about 30 to 45 mns away. Also near by there is a Walmart, Target, Costco, Safeway Supermarket, 4 ABC stores, Longs Drugs (same as a CVS pharmacy) and Mrs Barry's Kona Cookies. We took the Kona Trolley to get familiarized with the area, we enjoyed the ride. We are 3 adults, condo was comfortable, very well equipped with everything you need in a kitchen to cook a meal if you wish to do so. Has a Keurig coffee machine, one of the regular coffee machines, toaster, toaster oven, microwave, dish towels, dishwasher (which we didnt use) beach gear, towels, boogie boards, 3 chairs, umbrellas and a small size cooler perfect for us to take bottles of water & fruit to the beach. The lanai is spacious, 4 chairs and round table, it has a beautiful view of the ocean from the side, and right in front of the pool & hot tub. You can hear the waves crushing against the rocks. It has an over head fan also. Nice size bathroom, had no problem with the water pressure & or the water temperature at any time. Good amount of bath towels, which you use and then you can wash on the washing machine/dryer that the condo unit has in the kitchen. Toilet paper, soap, shampoo, conditioner & even some other products left by previous renters. Spacious bedroom with a big bed. AC in the bedroom on a timer, ceiling fan. Big closet. Sofa bed in living room, ceiling fan & portable floor tower fan. Had no issues sleeping there at night, even with the lanai's sliding door closed. Temperatures were everyday in the upper 80's. Also tried leaving the bedroom door open & the air reached the living room area. There is also a flat screen TV which we didn't watch a lot & free Wi-Fi. Didn't have any issues at night with the outside gate/code. Parking spaces available at all times. Pool & hot tub were cleaned every morning. 3 nice size BBQ grills. We saw amazing sunsets seating on the rocks. Beautiful gardens. Property owner was great & easy to communicate with.

It was fine. It met our needs.

  • 3 of 5

This unit was fine. It was clean and met our needs. In reality, a 3.5 rating is what we would say. It had the basics. We would have liked having an oven. The bed was just "ok", not that comfortable really. It was well-equipped with beach equipment. We appreciated that. We also appreciated the communication of the owners. Finally, while we may not use this particular unit in the future, we do like the Kona Makai complex.
