About Wendy Bachman

Aloha! We love traveling and fell in love with Hawaii! We have been fortunate enough to buy this unit and hope it's a comfortable home base for others who want to explore the Big Island.

Wendy Bachman purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Wendy Bachman chose Kona Coast

Great 'Home Base' unit to explore the island. Some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii and downtown Kona just a few minutes away!

What makes this apartment unique

The Oceanside pool is pretty spectacular and it is not unusual to see dolphins in the water right out front! About 5 minutes from White Sands Beach. Walking distance to downtown Kona, 'farmers market' and some great snorkeling spots.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed very much our visit in Kona. Your condo is very comfortable and is ideally located, and with everything nearby, we could profit more of our little 6 days in the big Island!!!

Nice local spot

  • 4 of 5

The condo was perfect for us. Its close to downtown kona and was super clean and tidy. Not a lot of privacy in the bedroom area due to the open upper wall going to the living room. The two headed shower was a bonus. The ocean access is on lava rocks but a perfect place to see the sunset. We didn't use the pool, mostly because we were in the ocean all day but it looked nice. Parking was easy and the complex was relatively quiet. I would recommend to anyone going to kona.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks in this nice condo at Kona Shores Unit 119. We have stayed in it before and we always feel like it is our home away from home! The complex is very conveniently located on Alii Drive close to great snorkeling, shopping etc. Our favorite thing about this place is the pool located right by the ocean! We love having our morning coffee sitting down there watching dolphins spin and boats go by.

The condo itself is nicely furnished with everything a person needs. It did lack a DVD player. We enjoy watching Redbox movies after a day at the beach but we made do. Not a big issue with us. I do think it would be beneficial if a family had small children as its nice put in a movie for the kids. It could use more towels and washrags and maybe a couple more beach towels so a person doesn't have to do laundry so often. Me, being the woman, REALLY, liked having a dishwasher. Many of the condos aren't furnished with one. The refrigerator also has an icemaker which saves numerous trips to the store for ice. It has filtered water so we didn't have to keep buying bottled water.

We will definitely stay here again.

Clean comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Kona shores had all we needed for a week's stay on the Big Island. Well-equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, reliable WiFi and the swimming pool by the ocean was a terrific bonus. We did see dolphins swimming by as we relaxed by the pool.

It's close enough to town to make a comfortable walk, but also close to exit roads so we didn't have to drive through main street traffic when we wanted to go somewhere.

Excellent value.

close to activities, clean, safe.

  • 5 of 5

very comfortable, with everything you need to stay in if you want, just pick up your supplies. very nice and clean laundry facility with a bench to sit and look at a peek a boo view of the ocean. just a few minutes to all of the activities, a few minutes to one of the best snorkeling beaches, a minute to watch the surfers on a beach. If you like to run or walk, the main road has a shoulder for that. The downtown and road can be very busy, just be patient. Parking is tight but we always found a spot, sometimes free, sometimes pay. The complex is a blend of residents and renters. You can meet people from all over the world. Everyone there was very nice and friendly, absolutely felt safe. This is not a five star resort, but very clean inside and out. No beach, but has a nice pool by the ocean, to lay out by if you don't want to go to the local beaches. The area has all of the big box stores and local places, within a 15 min drive. fresh local fruit, food and crafts within 2 min drive. We would stay there again. The owners answered all of my questions within a few minutes. We even went on a zip line ride 20ish minutes away, zipline hi kona, went through the trees, was amazingly quiet, all the others were 2+hrs away.

Great location and awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Wendy's place for the Ironman World Championship. Her condo is about 2 miles away from the race start and it's located on the run course on Ali'i drive. Wendy's place was perfect for my needs. It has a great kitchen with all the amenities (pots, pans, plates, utensils, etc). It was also stocked with extra items like beach chairs, coolers, towels, etc. The place was adorably decorated and very, VERY clean. The best part of the condo was the dual shower heads in the shower. I would definitely recommend Wendy's place to anyone and I hope to stay here again if I ever return to Kona.
