We have been coming to Hawaii for years and Kona has always been our favorite spot. We were fortune enough to be able to buy our condo last year. We love the Big Island for it great snorkeling and fishing, laid back atmosphere.
Linda purchased this Condo in 2013

We picked the Royal Kahili for it's perfect location - walking distance to beautiful beaches, snorkeling and to shopping. The condo complex as many new amenities, including a heated pool, fire pit and tiki tourches. In May 2014, a new Jacuzzi will be installed.

Great Kona location
Clean and comfortable accommodations with an ocean view and close access to the water. Beaches are nearby and the area is nice and quiet compared to areas closer to downtown Kona. Well equipped kitchen and comfy beds. Would love to have stayed even longer. Owner responded quickly to questions and the manager John was super helpful. Love the pool area as well. A great place to stay.
Great condo in a great location
Spacious & clean 2 bedroom condo with a view of he ocean! What’s not to love. Well manicured pool and common spaces. Close walk to beaches and market. Short drive into Kona for all the restaurants and shopping.
Our family of 4 had a very comfortable stay in this beautiful unit. Clean, well equipped and situated it was more than we had hoped. The pool was lovely, warm and clean and the complex manager was friendly and helpful answering our questions and recommending activities and restaurants. We enjoyed meeting other guests and families. The grills and grounds were also very clean, green and well maintained. The colored lights in the pool area and on the palm trees were magical at night. Our children loved the complex resident cats and the koi in the ponds. The view from the lanai and the turtles across the street were breathtaking.
The only hitch was one evening when a few of the locals had a bit to drink by the pool. We had misread the rules and thought that children under 14 could be in the hot tub with a parent as per the large sign at the entrance to the pool area. Apparently that only applies to the pool and children under 13 aren't allowed in the hot tub(it is a complex rule, not a state law though according to a local doctor and state legislator we met in town - but we are fine abiding by complex rules if we are aware of them). 3 women took exception to our 11 year old being in the hot tub with her mother (sitting talking, not splashing or yelling), took 1 look at us and without acknowledging us, put their hands on their hips and walked over to report us to the complex manager who kindly advised us of the hot tub rule. We felt bad that John was put into that uncomfortable situation due to our misunderstanding and apologized and out she hopped. The 3 women then proceeded to violate the no alcohol and no glass containers rule and hopped in to the hot tub already tipsy and with full wine glasses in hand, having exercised their power over a shy 11 year old girl. The next night they sat drinking by the fire pit with a man from their locals group who loudly dropped MF bombs until I called out to advise them that there were 5 children in the pool, which quieted them down. Other locals apologized to us the next day for the behavior of these 4 locals and assured us that it was just that small contingent that does not want to be bothered with children and families. The rest of our stay we felt very welcome and found all other guests and locals to be very friendly.
Thank you Linda and Rob! We would definitely stay here again.
Great location, lovely resort complex
This is our second time staying at Royal Kahili and we thourghly enjoyed our stay. This complex is located just a short distance from the hustle of downtown Kona and a two minute drive to a popular snorkel beach. Brand new barbecues were just installed while we were there. Unit A204 was exactly as advertised. It was clean, well maintained, comfortable, very well equipped and was ready for us on arrival. the owners are very nice and Linda tlooked after every question I had during the reservation process, she kept us informed at all times. The balcony over looks the court yard and the swimming pool area, and provides a nice view of the ocean shoreline and beach area just across the street. Would we stay here again, ABSOLUTELY. Would I recommend this unit to others, ABSOLUTELY. Highly recommended. Special thanks to the owners for sharing your wonderful condo. Mahalo.
Excellent vacation at the Royal Kahili!
We just returned from a fabulous 16 night stay on the Kona coast. We booked this condo just a couple weeks before our vacation, and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The location is just a few miles south of Kailua Village, right across the street from a small, rocky beach that's popular with local surfers and paddlers. The building and grounds are very well-maintained and comfortable - we really enjoyed the pool and patio areas, which were perfect when you wanted to take it easy or spend some time close to home. The condo was well equipped and very spacious, with plenty of windows and screened doors so you could enjoy the sound of the ocean. In particular, we appreciated the beach towels, beach chairs, and coolers that were provided, and we also made use of the boogie boards and books that were available in the lobby.
We used the condo as a "home base" and spent most days out on the road exploring all the island has to offer. In particular, we enjoyed visiting the volcano and the observatories on Mauna Kea - and we found some spectacular beaches north of Kailua (Kua Bay and Mauna Lea were our favourites!) We highly recommend renting a car - we found the weekly rental rates to be very reasonable, and without a car, you're very limited in your ability to get around.
Linda (the condo owner) was very helpful when we were booking the condo and making all preparations and payments. She was pleasant and kind, and took the time to walk us through what needed to be done. The condo manager, John, was also very kind and helpful. The VRBO listing and photos accurately reflected the condo amenities and location. Overall, we have no complaints about this rental - we would recommend without hesitation, and would certainly rent this location again on our next vacation to the Big Island!
Awesome Property in Kona Hawai'i
We totally enjoyed our recent stay at this property in Kona. This beautifully maintained unit is across the street from the ocean and walking distance to town. The completely remodeled kitchen with granite counters and new appliances was very impressive. The unit is well stocked for extended stays. The unit has all new furniture and a large flat screen television with many premium channels. The ocean view from the lanai was spectacular!! The building and grounds are impeccably maintained and extremely well managed. The secure pool, picnic areas and BBQ's are easily accessible. The building has an elevator for easy access to upper floor units. We will recommend this unit to our family and friends and can't wait for a return visit.
