  • Master Class in Condo Excellence

    "I so agree with all the other reviewers - this is an amazing location. The views are so wonderful from the large lanai (and the 2nd bedroom too!). We sat on the lanai for hours to take in the varied views (and did see one turtle in the week!) The place really is even more beautiful (inside too!) than the already great photos on the site. What also sets it apart is the wonderful service from the owners. They are so prompt and thoughtful. Great info before we arrived and the condo itself is perfectly organized. Everything you could need in the kitchen, plus a lot of great beach stuff (tons of beach towels, boogie boards, tatami mat). You don't have to leave the complex, but it's so easy if you do. Parking spot is right out front and you can either go into town or out sightseeing. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!"

  • Comfortable, convenient oceanside gem

    "Kona Makai is a comfortable, convenient, oceanside gem with absolutely beautiful grounds. It is obvious the complex takes great pride and care in the setting - lush green grass and plants; colorful flowers; clean parking, pool, grills and common areas. There is a very nice covered eating area with exercise equipment, ping pong tables, and a tucked-away library for beach reading. The evening sunset is an EVENT at Kona Makai, and provides an opportunity for residents and guests to gather oceanside to watch the waves, enjoy the sunset, and spend some time visiting. While the complex is right off Ali'i Drive, road and environment noise is not an issue. The condo, while small, is nicely equipped with all you need to make your stay in Kona easy and stress-free. Bedroom has plenty of storage for your visit, and the bath is nicely equipped (the tile work is really lovely). Lots of extras: plenty of towels in bath and kitchen (and good beach towels, not flimsy ones); beach toys for those who would like those (chairs and umbrella); dishes, glasses, and utensils are plentiful. Maria made the booking process easy - responsive, understanding, personable, and honest."

  • Vacation Perfection

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We arrived early to find that I hadn't read the instructions with the key code etc. The property manager was helped us figure it out. The unit was in very good con diction, perfect set up for a sizable family. Because we were early housekeeping wasn't done, but when they finished with a smile it was immaculate. The exterior is very well maintained, like a private paradise. Everything was there for our needs."

  • Perfect Hawaii vacation

    "My husband and I and are two adult children decided to ditch the turkey and tinsel and instead, have a family Christmas vacation in Hawaii. We had a wonderful time! The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. They provided us with easy to follow directions and a host of ideas as to what we could see and do during our stay. We stayed for 6 nights and it provided us with a comfortable base to discover Big Island. We drove across to the Hilo side of the island to visit the National Volcanoes Park which was really interesting but it made us glad we had chosen the Kona side for our main accommodation as the beaches are so much nicer on this side. Our favorite beach was just north of the airport and required about a mile long drive down an unmade road but it was worth the effort as I got to swim with so many turtles! The complex was beautifully maintained and the pool and Jacuzzi area was never overcrowded. The views of sunset from the pool area were amazing! The accommodation is spacious and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans and having the washer and dryer to use was very helpful. Perhaps the only issue we had was that the internet Wi-Fi signal wasn't very good. It is about a 20 minute walk into the center of Kona where there are plenty of bars and places to eat. We had such a great time and if we ever return to Big Island we would try and stay here again."
