About Nancy Burke-Hall

Both born and raised in Washington. We live in Olympia, WA. Even though we love Washington, with it's beautiful green trees, we needed to have a paradise escape to recharge. Phillip is a CPA and Nancy is a homemaker and primary care giver for Riley, our son who has autism. He has the best smile and laugh, but also requires an exhausting amount of care everyday. Kona is the perfect place for us to get away and relax for a few days. We are and have always been animal lovers. We rescued a very sweet dog named Duke.

Nancy Burke-Hall purchased this condo in 2016

Why Nancy Burke-Hall chose Kailua-Kona

It has always been a dream to move to Hawaii; however, since that is not a full time option for us, we can still have a little piece of Paradise a few times a year. We are still amazed, every time we visit our condo, how close we are to the ocean. Going to bed and waking up listening to the ocean is so serene. Snorkeling in Kona is one of the best hobbies one can do while visiting the island. Nancy is infatuated with the Sea Turtles.

What makes this condo unique

With the condo so close to the ocean, you can sit out on the lanai and watch the beautiful sunsets; see an 'occasional Whale's Tale waving; and see some Spinner Dolphins jumping. Kona Makai is a very quite and relaxing property. So, if you want to catch a nap or read a book by the pool or on the lanai, it is very peaceful place. Kona is such a quaint town. The coffee is incredibly can find wonderful coffee everywhere! Oh and did I mention, that our building is right next to the Ocean too!

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfectly comfortable for our family of 4. The kids had their own space in the loft, and we had a large bedroom downstairs. The condo was clean, quiet and had everything we needed. Was great having a beach umbrella, boogie boards and cooler to use on our daytrips. Enjoyed listening to the ocean waves during the night. The views were better than we had imagined. If you enjoy eating breakfast on the lanai as the sun comes up in the morning and watching incredible sunsets in the evening, this is the perfect location. The outdoor grounds are clean and very well kept. Nice BBQs, pool, and sitting area by the rocks looking out at the ocean. Great coffee shop nearby and a short distance from the shops & restaurants in downtown Kona. Thanks for sharing your beautiful property with us, Nancy!

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing condo in a great complex. First, the condo. The owners have provided a clean, comfortable place to relax and enjoy yourself! Everything you could ever need is there including beach equipment and a state of the art kitchen. Bed is very comfortable. We spent hours on the lanai listening to the birds and waves. We didn't need the air conditioning but left the lanai screen and front door lockable screen open all night to get the breezes. The complex, Kona Makai is perfect. The grounds are lush and tropical and the groundskeepers have the pool and all areas in perfect, clean condition. The condo is just feet from the waterfront and the sound of waves is 24 hours a day, soothing and relaxing. I read others complaining of the rules of the complex but my husband and I appreciated the efforts made to keep the place quiet and peaceful. You can party in town if that's your choice! We couldn't believe how peaceful this place was. Sunsets unbelievable and snorkelling right off the rocks at the complex is as good as anywhere we found on the island. Fantastic condo in a wonderful complex!

Celebrating our 28th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Nancy’s Kona condo was incredible. The condo is well set up and had everything we needed. The view was breathe taking. It is very centrally located and a nice walk into town. The property itself is impeccably maintained. Nancy responded to me immediately when I called with an issue and we had immediate resolution. We would definitely stay again in Nancy’s condo. Loved every minute of our vacation.

6.8 Miles
Kona International Airport
Car: necessary

DIRECTIONS to Kona Makai –If you are renting a car at the Kona Airport, get your luggage then cross to the center island in the roadway to catch your rental company shuttle. Head to Kailua-Kona by turning right (south) onto the Hi-19 (Queen Kaahumanu Hwy) going about 6.8 miles into Kona (Kailua-Kona). Turn right onto Palani Road. Continue down the hill through the stop lights, curving left at the bottom of the hill to follow the ocean. This becomes Ali'i Drive (uh-lee-ee), which is the main road along the water for many miles. Stay on Ali'i Drive past all the shops, attractions and restaurants, then passing Royal Kona Resort. About a mile further, you will see a series of condo complexes on your right. Pass Kona Tiki, Sea Village, Ali'i Villas, and the next one is Kona Makai. It has a lava rock wall surrounding the property. Turn right into the driveway. Free parking available on site. Enjoy!
