It's our hope that making our unit available will ensure others get to experience the magic of the Island and the tranqulity of the Kona Makai.

There are many activities you can enjoy on the Kona Coast and on the big island of Hawaii - but you can also just sit back, relax, and stay in! The condominium and the Kona Makai complex are a wonderful place to do just that. There are a number of activities you might consider during your stay.

An excellent and often-updated guidebook to the whole Big Island is "Hawaii the Big Island Revealed: the Ultimate Guidebook". (There is a copy for your use in the condo - please keep it indoors and "clean and fresh" for other guests.) You can do a google search for this book and other information and activities that you may be interested in during your stay. If you use Facebook you can search for "Kona Makai Condo" and visit our page and see a variety of photos and activities.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Husband and wife team who work hard and play hard. Life long Oregon residents.

Why the Owner Chose Kailua-Kona, HI, USA:
Been going to the Big Island of Hawaii for over 20 years and staying at the Kona Makai Condominium Property. It's construction and location and garden like manicured grounds make it so inviting. Typically very quiet and relaxing non-smoking complex and property.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Right on the ocean this property has a million dollar west facing view with beautiful sunsets. With a nice pool and hot tub, exercise facilities, and tennis courts and a small ocean cove which you can enter the warm pacific ocean all right there - you will soon see what we fell in love with. Close to downtown shops, markets and dinning.
