Nice and open but AC does not sufficiently cool

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, clean and open living space. The only complaint I have is the AC. It does not sufficiently cool the condo and we had to buy a fan to help cool the space!

Greatly enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful place for a great price. It was a perfect home base for us as we spent 9 days exploring all over the island. Very clean with a cooler, beach bag, beach towels, beach chairs etc. to use as needed. We enjoyed walking out to the rocks by the pool and sitting there reading a book, listening to the waves and watching the crabs. It was also a nice walk to the restaurants and shops.

The good and the bad.

  • 4 of 5

Condo was very clean, however it did have some drawbacks. We were on the second floor, arrived after dark and when we were walking up the stairs I tripped on the bottom step and fell, skinning my legs. The bottom step did not have a metal front as the others did and it blended in with the landing. Another problem was there was not enough garbage bags for the kitchen (only one - how can we take out the garbage daily as requested?) We ran out of toilet paper, there should be a TV channel listing so we didn't have to hunt and peck. It would have been extremely helpful if there had been an information page with the available ride options, i.e. cabs, buses, trolleys, times and stops. We had a car for the first two days then we were sunk. I have a mobility problem and could not walk to town. Not your fault, but being that it is directly on the road, the traffic in the morning was very loud and woke me every morning. I would stay there again, only if I could get a condo on the first floor away from the road.

Our stay at Kona Shores, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Kona Shores. The location was good. Condo was clean and modern. It had all the conveniences of home. Pool was nice, clean and next to the ocean. Only downfall was access to a gas/propane barbecue. Resort does provide the use of a briquette barbecue grill. Laundry room had a number of updated washers/dryers..

Cute and Cosy!

  • 5 of 5

Great Studio apartment that is well equipped with everything you need for a great vacation! Beach chairs, umbrella, boogie board, and cooler for the beach! Lovely oceanfront pool with fabulous sunset views! Owners are very friendly and attentive to your needs and property manager close by to help with any concerns. Clean, cute and cosy! Short walk to town. The only drawback is the street noise from Alii Drive during the day. Would have loved a Gas bbq rather than a briquettes only situation at the outdoor communal bbq area, and because of this my friend and I did not bbq while we were there. Overall we had a wonderful stay!!

Not what we expected

  • 1 of 5

We requested an early check-in to be able to store our luggage before we left for the day. Kelly never replied to my request. So the morning of check-in I asked again. When I didn't get a prompt response, we went to the unit, knocked on the door, when no one answered we went in and left our luggage with a note and contact info. The place looked clean. We later got a response from Kelly saying the unit had not been cleaned yet? When returning way after check-in time, the only difference we could see was a box of candy with a card, some picked flowers on the kitchen & bathroom sinks & a dirty looking dish towel hanging near the sink. The following things are also why we were not happy: no wash cloths, no blow dryer, stained dish towel, black mold on the shower curtain. Also apparently the tenant downstairs smokes? You can smell it when u enter & when opening the patio door. There were signs in the complex that said "no pets allowed" ? We watched a cat climb up the inside screen of one of the units. We wanted to bring our Chihuahua who is completely house broken!? Won't be back & won't recommend this place.

PS-we didn't appreciate the bug sprayer knocking on the door to come in & spray. (Twice)

The Kona region of the Big Island goes beyond Hawaii's traditional offerings. Sure, there's ample sun, surf and sandy beaches, but the Kona coast features so much more. Step back in time and explore Kona's history, taste some of the world's richest coffee and view marine animals in the clear waters of the surrounding Pacific Ocean. These activities and more a wait along the Big Island's Kona coast.

Location: Kona is one of seven regions on Hawaii's Big Island, encompassing a 60-mile stretch of the western coast. The Big Island sits at the southeastern end of Hawaii's island chain, and is 4,038 square miles, double the combined size of Hawaii's other seven islands.

History: Kailua-Kona, also called Kailua-Kona Town, is a city in the Kona region and was, at one point, home to King Kamehameha in the early 1800s. The Historic Kailua Village in Kailua-Kona pays homage to Kamehameha and other Hawaiian royalty with tours of historic sites such as Hulihee Palace and Mokuaikaua Church. Also located on the Kona coast is Kealakekua Bay, where captain James Cook first landed on the Big Island and eventually was killed, in 1779.

Historical Parks: Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park has a monument to Captain James Cook. Near Kealakekua Bay is the 180-acre Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park, which was once a sacred place of refuge. The Kaloko-Honokohau National Historic Park is a 1,160-acre park just north of Kailua-Kona that is home to historic temples and ancient petroglyphs.

Beach Activities: There are many white-sand beaches and ocean activities available on the Kona coast, from snorkeling and surfing to whale watching and dinner cruises. The waters along the Kona coast are calm and clear, providing perfect visibility of green sea turtles, fish and other marine life while snorkeling and scuba diving. There are surfing schools that offer individual and group lessons, sport fishing charters, dinner cruises and boat tours that will put you up close to whales, dolphins, manta rays and green sea turtles.

Things to Do: There's plenty to do in Kona aside from beach and ocean activities. Kona's small towns have many shops and galleries. Take a tour up to the 14,000-foot summit of nearby Mauna Kea, either during the daytime, to enjoy spectacular views, or at night, to take in some stargazing. Visit Kona in October to take in the annual Ironman World Championship, a long-distance triathlon that attracts some of the world's top athletes.

Kona Coffee: Kona has many excellent restaurants that offer dishes featuring fresh seafood from the Pacific Ocean, but the real treat on this part of the island is Kona coffee. There are many coffee farms in Kona, the only place where Kona coffee beans are grown to produce 100 percent pure Kona coffee. The conditions in Kona are just right for growing these rare beans--elevation, constant cloud cover and rich, volcanic soil. Aside from taking home some of this famous beverage, visitors can tour many of the area's coffee farms, and visit the Kona Coffee Living History Farm.
