Great unit, spacious, clean

  • 5 of 5

Great unit - clean and spacious (although it was just me, my husband, and our 2 year old son so he got his own room:). We didn't need to contact owner during our stay but the whole process was smooth and easy. We have used vrbo for other stays on the big island and this was the nicest condo we have stayed in. Thanks Wayne!

Kona Makai paradise

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying at Kona Makai for several years and this is by far the loveliest unit we have rented here. Freshly painted, new carpeting, updated interior, firm bedding, and wonderful location on the shady side of the complex so you won't roast in the sun! Debra and Wayne are onsight and make sure that this 2 bedroom condo is clean and ready when you arrive. The location is perfect for a 20 minute walk to town, 7 minute drive to a great snorkel site, and best of all a wonderful view of the ocean from your lanai. Some brave souls even snorkel here if the surf is calm. Over the years we have met great friends from the U.S. and Canada who return to enjoy the amenities of Kona Makai. The grounds are gorgeous with blooming hibiscus, palms, and other tropical plants that are meticulously groomed. Unlike some other complexes, Kona Makai is sheltered from the traffic noise on Alii Drive by tennis courts, has easy secure parking, 3 grills, pool, and spa. Highly recommend this piece of paradise.

Beautifully located with great view of the ocean from the condo's lanai. Very well equipped, including beach chairs and mats. Pool, hot tub and BBQ all conveniently located below condo. Very quiet condo complex. Condo itself was very clean and had excellent kitchen and even a washer and dryer.

Location handy to Kona sights. Highly recommend. Would definitely return.

Stayed 1 week with my family. Nice location with an amazing view on the ocean. Very well equipped for cooking and beach items. BBQ, pool and spa were OK. Very well located and close to everything while enjoying a quiet environment. Kona is a nice place to stay to visit the entire island and the weather is always great. A lot to do in a radius of 45 minutes. The owner was very accommodating and responsive. I highly recommend this place.

Great holiday spot in Kona

  • 4 of 5

This accommodation was excellent during our stay in Kona. Spacious apartment, two spacious bedrooms and bathrooms and well-equipped kitchen. Lanai had a great view of the ocean, and the complex was very well-maintained with a beautiful pool, a couple of BBQs and table tennis table. It was a great location during Ironman week -- enough away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to town that you can walk in (although would recommend still hiring a car). Our only gripe would be that the air-conditioning and fan in the second bedroom (2 x single room) seemed to only be moderately effective during our stay, so the house stayed cool but this room was generally still a bit hot and stuffy. Other than that, this place was perfect -- 4.5 stars! Thank you for having us -- would definitely stay here again!
