About Mai Lieu

You may have seen me on ABC's TV show Shark Tanks- Season 7 episode 27! I'm a entrepreneur, Bestselling author, and business owner. I love surfing, tahitian dance and hiking. I grew up in Canada however once I moved to Hawaii 11years ago I fell in love with the beaches and great weather. I've traveled all over the world and Hawaii is the best place to live!

Mai Lieu purchased this condo in 2014

Why Mai Lieu chose Kailua-Kona

I fell in love with this property because of the beautiful sunsets and ocean view from the living room. Plus Honl's beach is next door some of the best surfing and snorkeling in town. I'm passionate about surfing so this unit is just perfect. I love that you can hear the was from the room! It's most of all so convenient, I love to walk everywhere and the property has everything you need.

What makes this condo unique

I love the lanai, you an sit outside and enjoy the view of the ocean and pool! Perfect if you have kids you can keep an eye on them from the unit. You can hear the waves at night it's so relaxing. There's not many sandy beaches in Big Island and we happen to be next to a famous one! The condo is spacious and it has 1 bedroom so when we do have guest they can stay on the pull out sofa bed. It's perfect for a small family or a second couple! I also love the pool over looking the ocean, plus the spa is so relaxing. We love the BBQ area for family dinners! The best part is it's only 5 mins walking from town, to all the great restaurants and shops its so convenient. I just love it.

Clean, dark, and mostly quiet

  • 3 of 5

I enjoyed the room and appreciated the modern upgrades. The condo owner was very responsive and always got back to me within 1-4 hours. The condo was clean, dark, and mostly quiet. I couldn't see the ocean, which was disappointing. If I were taller, I would have been able to see it over the pool. I could only hear the ocean if I stepped outside and focused on listening. My grandparents had a room that overlooked the whole ocean, and you could hear even it from the back bedroom. I would recommend springing for that kind of room if you can.

Overall, I feel like I got a good value for what I paid.

Fantastic Location, Awesome property, Great Value

  • 4 of 5

The location of this property- next to a beach and a 5-minute walk from downtown Kona/Kailua- is unbeatable. The views from the Kona Reef pool are incredible. And Mai's unit gives you this for incredible value! The unit has some quirks, but is very clean, tidy, and well-decorated, and the easy access to the pool and Kona/Kailua made this a perfect choice. The views from the Lanai are much better than we had expected (from the tall table it's easy to see out to the pool and the ocean), and overall this was a great value for our stay. Mai was also very responsive, and check-in/check-out was seamless.

Amazing hostess, exceptional views, perfect location to

  • 5 of 5

Mai was very responsive, even provided her cell phone upon arrival for texting which made answering questions almost immediate. The condo is perfect with all the necessities. We loved that you could easily walk to town and there are several great snorkeling beaches just minutes drive from the condo. Open the sliding door to the private lanai and you can hear the ocean every morning. A few steps to the pool and you have exceptional sunsets views. Mai even offered us an option for late check out (until 9pm) on our final day so we could enjoy the convenience of having access to everything while we awaited our evening flight. We'll definitely return to Kona should we get another opportunity! Thank you, Mai, for making this long overdue vacation such a blessing.

Beautiful Condo and so close to town!

  • 5 of 5

I loved how they newly renovated the condo with new floors, and appliances. First time having a dish washer and my own washing machine in my airbnb! You have to check out the BBQ pool area, we watched the sunset each night! I also like being on the main floor it was easy to walk to the pool and not have to go up and down stairs! I also liked the view of the pool and ocean from our patio. Defiantly coming back again. Oh yes and owner is really quick at responses and very helpful, she even helped us call a shuttle to airport when she didn't need to. So thank you!
