About Bradley AND Tammera Gorringe

We currently live in Idaho for about 6-8 months and Hawaii the rest of the time. We Love the Big Island of Hawaii and plan on spending as much time here as possible in the next 30 years or so.

Bradley AND Tammera Gorringe purchased this condo in 2012

Why Bradley AND Tammera Gorringe chose Kailua-Kona

We purchased a home in the Puna district on the Big Island of Hawaii in March of 2010 after vacationing there 4 or 5 times. Puna is over 100 miles from Kona making it a 2-3 hour commute. We found out that we traveled to Kona every 2 weeks when staying at our house so we decided to purchase a Condo so we would have somewhere to stay while on these outings. This makes a great arrangement for all to enjoy this wonderful place.

What makes this condo unique

The best thing about Kona Shores Condo's is the pool area....

I would rate it in the top 5 places to watch a Sun Set in Kona or Hawaii as well. What a great place to relax and take in the great Kona Experience.

Great value, great location

  • 5 of 5

Great value for the price. Convenient location, walking distance to tons of shopping/dining. Great oceanside pool and able to jump in and snorkel right in front of the property. Host was very quick to respond to questions and accommodating to our needs. Not the newest/fanciest condo complex around but we did not expect it to be for the low price point. This unit was very clean and we felt safe there and would recommend it to anyone trying to do a nice Hawaiian vacation on a budget.

No view

  • 4 of 5

If you want view from the condo,you will not get here...the picture with the view of the ocean is from common area...otherwise, very nice, very well equipped apartment. Beds are comfortable,the couch was my husband and daughter favorite. And very importantly, how I learned here on Maui, the apartment has small AC, but it’s enough to cool down. So overall, we really like it.

Convenient, well equipped

  • 4 of 5

Great set up! Appreciated having a kitchen cupboard of spices. We brought my elderly mother, so ate in many nights. We had everything we needed. Really glad also of the fully stocked beach equipment--beach chairs, boogie boards, masks, umbrella. Owners responded to any questions we had really quickly. Do wish that the complex had handicapped parking stalls, especially near the stairs.

A little less than expected

  • 3 of 5

We were a little disappointed. In order to grill at the pool area you needed to have charcoal and unfortunately the view from the chairs at the pool were looking through bars. There were a couple chairs that you could sit and enjoy the view but you needed to be pretty quick if you wanted them. The view from our condo indicated it would be partial ocean and they weren't kidding, in reality you needed to lean over the balcony and look through some tree branches to see a glimpse of blue.

With that said, the condo was clean and comfortable so if you are just looking for a place to rest from activities this would suit your needs. We also enjoyed the use of the beach chairs and there were quite a number of other items to use such as an umbrella that we thought was very nice.

We probably wouldn't stay here again though because we have found the same for less money. Our fault for not booking a little earlier.

Perfect condo

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little condo in a good location, nice swimming pool by the ocean. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the balcony. It has everything you could possibly need, full kitchen and full bathroom, even beach chairs!
