Recent Kona Makai reviews

  • Great place to stay---close to everything.

    "We needed a place to stay close to Kailua and found the Kona Makai to be just just right--only 5 minutes by car or 20 minute walk to town. Our top floor unit had a loft for some extra teen room and the two twins in the 2nd bedroom provided great sleeping flexibility. Kitchen was well stocked as promised and we cooked at the BBQs most nights--never having to wait and enjoying the fraternity with others. For sunset, we joined the others by the water since our balcony didn't view that direction--but all good again with just a short walk and plenty of plastic glasses in stock. They are serious about the pool rules with a vigilant manager on site--no kids after 8pm and all out by 9pm. Never had a problem with parking, though spots are assigned and you will have to walk a bit. Can always double park a bit for loading & unloading. Accessing the water for snorkeling just off the rocks there was not hard for adults (watch others first!), but not something for kids. Just down the road was the perfect easy access place though (Kahaluu Bay). Long sandy beaches aren't to be found in the south, but about an hour north is plenty (Hapuna perfect for boogie boarding). And don't miss the Volcano National Park! Overall, great location and nice place to stay!"

  • 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!"

  • All the conviences of home

    "Relaxing stay. All the conveniences of home including washer/dryer and a dish washer. Enjoyed cooking down by the pool and visiting with other guests/residents as we watched the sunset each night. We heard that the snorkeling is great at the shore access by the pool, but the surf seemed rough for us beginners. Only negative was the walk uphill to the parking lot (luggage, groceries, gear, etc). There are a couple of wagons available to borrow to assist with carrying heavy items. Having air conditioning was wonderful since we are used to a cooler climate (Oregon). Such a relief to sleep in a cool bedroom. The lanai is nice for coffee in the morning. The gardens are lush and beautiful and attract lots of birds and a few geckos. Made for great pictures. Couch is not a futon but still a comfortable bed. Very helpful and responsive owner. Plan to come back next year"
