What Our Guests Are Saying
Kona Onenalo 1
We loved this home! It was a great base for exploring beaches and the volcano. Access to amenities such as beach towels, a cooler, snorkeling gear and a stocked kitchen that included Tupperware for our daily adventures made a big difference for our family—so convenient and easy. With Kona Coast Vacation Rentals looking out for us we had a quick response for all our questions and needs. In addition this property came w concierge access which helped us book the right boating/dolphin tour based on our needs and the ages of our kids. We had some lovely meals thanks for their suggestions. Between the rental folks and the concierge it was more like staying at a hotel but with the freedom and independence we love about Airbnb. All of this and being ON the water was so exceptional. We loved watching the whales and surfers from the upstairs lanai and walking to Magic Sands Beach. The kids liked checking out the tidal pools before bed and we liked having access to Netflix in the evening. We cooked in a few times because the kitchen was so well supplied. Thank you for an awesome trip to your beautiful home!
Keauhou Punahele D302
This was an ideal unit for our family , providing plenty of room for the 5 of us. The beach equipment and sporting equipment included were much appreciated. We loved the new furniture, especially the dining table on the lanai. We ate all our meals there! It was so nice to have our own BBQ on the lanai as well. Mahalo for sharing your home with us.
We spent 10 days at Blue Water at Kona Bay Estate. It was our 50th anniversary and we brought our kids and grandkids over to celebrate - as we did on our 45th. The home fit our needs well. The house is getting a bit tired and needs some updating but the location and view cannot be beat. We had several maintenance issues with the pool and icemaker but calling Kona Coast Vacations was great. They sent someone over almost immediately and stayed on the problems until solved. We will continue to book through them as we have in the past.
Waikoloa Colony Villas 1503
We had such a wonderful and enjoyable stay at Waikoloa Colony Villas 1503. This was the cleanest unit I have ever stayed at. Every amenity we needed was available to us. Will definitely share this place with our friends and of course stay here again. Mahalo and Aloha, A.G. Garcia
Country Club Villas 318
We loved the condo at the Country Club Villas. From making the reservation to arrival, everything went smoothly. The condo perfectly fit our needs. The 3 bedroom 3 bath condo gave all of us privacy and space. This was one of the best stocked kitchens in any condo we've rented. Lots of spices and plenty of cooking utensils and pots. We also appreciated the beach chairs and towels. Comfortable beds, good location. We'd love to go back!
Kona Coast Vacations went above and beyond for us. Not only did we get a great price on a gorgeous place, but we also had a concierge who was available to help us plan our vacation, select great places to eat and see, and was available to answer a multitude of questions. Any issues that came up (a coffee pot stopped working) were dealt with promptly and they were always available if needed. The price was reasonable and the service was excellent. I will definitely book through them again.
Casa de Emdeko 116
Very friendly and attentive staff and many different locations to choose from. Personally, I’d recommend Casa de Emdeko 116. It’s a beautiful complex, the suite is well maintained, beautifully decorated, full of amenities, and just steps from the ocean and two pools. Plus the residents and other vacationers are helpful, friendly and want everyone to have an amazing stay.
Sea Village 2102
As always we have the best vacation ever! Thank you for providing such a beautiful home and location to relax in. We love the location because of the Western view, a short walk to town, the beautiful pool and hot tub right outside our patio. I will be back and thank you Kona Coast for all your help.
Waikoloa Fairway B114
We had an amazing time at the Waikoloa Fairway Condo B114. The Condo was beautiful and spacious and comes with so much more then the essentials. There was a Smart TV so we could log into our Netflix, there were also a variety of DVD's, inside toys, outside toys, beach towels and much more. There was also a newly installed A/C so we stayed nice and cool the whole stay and the beds in both rooms were very comfortable. The Neighbors and Neighborhood are very friendly, clean and quite. Perfect place to relax. When you are not relaxing there are tons of close local places to visit and shop. The grocery store is less than a 3 min drive up the road, there is also Lava Java for not only Coffee, but they also have delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner options. Off the main highway (about 15 min from the Condo) there is a shopping center which was great for shopping and eating, plus it is right by a few local beaches that are beautiful and great for kids. The Kona Coast Concierge 'David' was awesome. He called a head of time and sent us a ton of information about local excursions. He was able to set everything up for us and we received the Kona Coast discounted rate on all our activities. David also provided information for a local photographer as we were doing family pictures and then also a great babysitting service. Upon arrival, the Kona Coast concierge service called just to check in and make sure we did not need anything, they really went above the expected level of customer service. We will definitely be staying there again, Waikoloa Fairway Condo B114 is AWESOME.
We had a fantastic experience at Kamilo's Place, it was everything we had hoped for and so much more. The setting and surrounding area are great for anyone looking to exploring or those who prefer to admire the beauty from the large covered porch. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and utensils. The beds were super comfy. The pool was great and we spent most of our time poolside. The outdoor furniture made it pleasant to be outside. What a wonderful gathering space for a family or group of friends! We highly recommend this property.
Keauhou Akahi 311
Aloha! This is our 4th time visiting Kona! We loved everything about our stay on the Big Island. This is our first time booking with Kona vacations which made this visit the best yet. Everything was well organized and worry free. I must say, our condo at Keauhou Akahi 311 had everything and more....better then our expectations and couldn't ask for more! We felt at home! We enjoyed the clean, comfortable, island decor. The amenities were all we just what we needed. Beautiful landscaping, grounds and pool. The quiet friendly atmosphere and the people we met staying there also were a pleasure. We spent much time on the lanai.... our mornings having breakfast of local fruits with the sunrise, and beautiful evening sunsets after barbequing or the local shaka taco stand just down the road to name a few of our stops. We loved friendly wildlife....the sweet geckos and birds joined us always! It was perfectly located between the hustle of downtown ( we were there for the ironman) close to shopping and Captain cook and 2 step where we love to snorkel. We've been to many of the landmarks on the Island and recommend them all. I can't think of one thing I would change except having to leave. I will be looking to stay exactly there again each time I visit and would recommend it to anybody. Sincerely, Mahalo Erica and Doug

Alii Villas 309
We stayed in Alii Villas Apt 309. Apartment was perfect. Great location, brilliant views, very well equipped and clean, spacious, nice pool area. Kona Coast Vacations kept us up to date all the time but did not pester us. Really enjoyed our stay in Kona and would highly recommend the property and the operator. Hope to get back again some day. Thanks a million
We had an amazing stay in Kona for the Ironman. The house was the best! Beautiful views, great spaces, indoors and out! So nice to fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the rocks. The kitchen had everything I needed to cook great meals. The house is walking distance to everything you could need! Hope to go back and stay there again soon!
GMH at Keauhou Estates 9
Wonderful stay in a beautiful home where panoramic views of the ocean sooth your soul. The pictures could not do justice to this incredible home stocked with everything you need and then some.The two masters on the second floor are inspiring and the perfect romantic spot to view the sunset and stars. Can't wait to come back!
Casa de Emdeko 109
We had a great stay at Casa De Emdeko # 109. The unit was great. The entry process into the complex and the unit was really smooth. I like the idea of not having to worry about keys. Just punch in a code for the gate to enter the secure parking lot and another code to enter the room. The amenities of the complex itself were fantastic and totally uncrowded. Having a heated salt water pool perched on the edge of the ocean was a blast. My wife loved the beach area close to the pool for lying in the sun. Access to the ocean itself directly from the complex is not advised, the coast was all large lave rock at this area, but the pool and the recliners right on the edge of the ocean were so convenient. The large shaded or full sun patio was great to relax at for breakfast in the morning. A short walk with plates in hand from the room. The second pool (heated fresh water) was just steps away from the room as well. In room washer/dryer is great to have and the king size bed and AC unit made the stay very comfortable. Would definitely recommend for those staying in the Kailua-Kona area
Kona Reef A32
The coastal view from the Kona Reef condo was amazing! The place was clean, and came furnished with everything we needed to stay for the week. We will happily book with Kona Coast Vacations again, and perhaps scout out the Kona Reef condos for our next trip to Hawaii! The location couldn't have been better, as endless restaurants and shops were within a few minutes walking distance.
Ohi Kapua Pl.
Kona Coast Vacations was very professional from reservation to check-out. Great property.. Well kept, clean, and comfortable. They checked in with us to make sure everything with our stay was perfect and were quick to send a handyman to fix a minor issue. The best thing was the complimentary concierge who came with the house, David at Kona Concierge. I've never experienced this in a VRBO before. He gave us great tips that made our trip more convenient and enjoyable than if we hadn't talked with him (early check-in - which just happened to work out for us - was super helpful). He was great at helping us decide which activities would be best for our group, and found us a great deal on THE BEST snorkel trip in Hawaii. Highly recommend, would use them again!
We were a group of 6 adults who stayed at this home for a week. Everything about it exceeded our expectations. The location was ideal for exploring the big island. So many opportunities were withing 15-20 minutes of this wonderful home base. We were on the go a lot. The only thing we would change would be to lengthen our stay beyond a week so that we could spend more time relaxing at this beautiful home.
Mauna Lani Islands K1
We have stayed at multiple Airbnb homes and we can say without a doubt that this property has the most efficient and well stocked kitchen. We truly lacked nothing! So many cupboards are labeled which is extremely helpful in a large space like this one. Also, the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and the decor in the entire unit is beautiful. Lastly, the landscaping throughout the entire community is impeccably kept. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this property.
Kokua at Kona Bay Estates
Very stylish and well appointed house - perfect for large groups and lots of amenities to support (glassware, towels, pots, platters etc.) so great for entertaining and having bbqs. Easy drive from the airport and into town. You could even walk into town if you’re up for it, just a bit far to do all the time but we did a few times. Little beach cove was lovely for morning and evening swims. Aircon in all the bedrooms just not the living area (FYI only) great size pool as well. Recommend!
Kona Ali'i 705
5 stars. This was a great condo with a perfect view. The water changed colors all day and you can see the yellow fish from the balcony!! Picture perfect sunsets. The condo was beautiful well appointed. Enough room enough cabinets and dressers. Kitchen was perfect. The front room was spacious and a lot of silting area. They have a built-in Sonos system that was great even on the patio. Patio Great furniture and a fan on the patio was nice. Had beach towels and all the beach gear you would need. We would rent this place again and would highly recommend it.
Casa de Emdeko 321
Casa de Emdeko Kona, Hawaii 3, 2, 1....blast off to a world of beauty, comfort, style, humour and ease! Unit 321 marries mid century modern sensibility together with the most up to date technology. Every room is bright, warm, luxurious even - I cite the king size super comfy bed in particular. Hanging out in this large, private corner apartment is bliss. The well appointed balcony, with the sea view, bird song and fluttering palms will ensure my return. With care, attention and sensitivity, the owners have put in place everything needed for a relaxing hang out, and the home you dream of returning to, after a Big Island day away! Simply, Apartment 321 is better, and more fully equipped than even my home. It's really great here!!
Country Club Villas 324
I couldn't have been more pleased with the condition and cleanliness of the Country Club Villas 324. I was more impressed with all the amenities it came with that you wouldn't expect to find in a rental, like a BBQ, lawn chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear and an ice chest. Things like that turned a rented room into a home away from home! I would definitely recommend staying there. Completely Satisfied Customer
Great view, nice pool, lots of room for everyone to spread out. Snorkel in the cove beside the house. The house is well stocked with everything you need, including snorkel gear. We'd come back in a heartbeat!
Kamilo house on the Big Island was like being at our own private resort. We loved the outdoor living space where we could Bbq, swim, hot tub and sit out under the veranda and drink coffee in the morning and drink wine in the evening. The house had everything we needed including plastic dishes for outside, pool toys, a cooler for our picnic when we drove to the volcano and the location was amazing. Being on the Kona coast we could see the ocean from the house and we were a 5 min drive to restaurants, markets, shopping and the harbour for boating excursions. We found the Kona customer service was top notch as they helped us with any questions we had upon arrival. Thank you for letting us stay at you clean, inviting and spacious house!! Kelly Hickey - Milton Ontario Canada
5/5!!!! We travel extensively & Kona Bliss was one of the most outstanding properties we have ever had. The location on the rugged lava cliffs with the sound of the ocean in every room was breathtaking. I’ve never seen more windows with awesome ocean views from every room. Management responsive to every need. Thank you Kona Coast Vacations. Will book the same “island home” in 2021, God willing.
Kahalu'u Bay Villas 103
Had the most amazing time on the Big Island compliments to Kona Coast and the awesome hospitality, our property was perfect and clean with a spectacular view, and close to amenities for necessities. A/C was definitely a bonus too! Thanks Kona Coast for making our first trip to the Big Island epic and memorable. Can not wait to return! Mahalo 🌺
Kona Riviera #203
Beautiful, clean unit in an excellent location. We are former Kona residents and were truly impressed by this unit as well as the hospitality we received from Kona Coast Vacations. Highly recommend.
Our family had a great experience renting a home in Kailua-Kona with Kona Coast Vacations! Everything went as smoothly as humanly possible. The house was everything the pictures promised (and then some) and the concierge was so extremely helpful in planning activities for our family of 5. All emails were promptly responded to & overall, just a top notch experience! Would definitely book through them again!
My husband and I took his parents and our two children (8 and 5) and stayed at Hia Place for 7 nights. We all agreed that it was true paradise! It's located centrally and is extremely private, very clean, well stocked, gorgeous grounds, very comfortable! The master bedroom and bathroom is amazing. There are only two things that weren't perfect. The beds in the two other bedrooms are small, pretty sure they were full size and there is no air conditioning in the main part of the house, which is not a problem as long as you're sitting at the pool. It does get hot inside during the day but cools off beautifully at night. It has an open air floor plan which allows for air flow so we weren't really bothered about not having A/C in the main part of the house. I can't say enough good things about this place and the property management company. While we were there the grill wasn't working so we had a new grill the very next morning. I mentioned that the coffee grinder wasn't working and I had a new one within a few hours! The concierge service that came with the property was amazing as well! David, who was our concierge, helped us with everything that we needed. This is definitely worth the money spent. Check in and check out was a breeze and the pool was ideal! My kids were in at the second they woke up until bathtime at night. If you're thinking about renting this place...just pull the trigger! It's worth it!
Keauhou Estates Hale Kuhinanui Way
We stayed in this home for a much needed getaway from our busy schedules. I had read in several reviews in which people mentioned that the pictures did not do the house justice & I must say I agree. I loved how the walls opened up to allow for an open air environment, exactly what you come to Hawaii to enjoy. The view from the house was spectacular & is in a safe gated community which we really enjoyed. It was a great location close to many amenities and beaches & a perfect landing point if you want to explore the island. The concierge was very attentive & friendly, overall I really have nothing bad to say about this vacation home. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 10-day stay in this beautiful home. It has been well maintained and was spotless, and we had no issues during our stay beyond some minor issues lighting the bbq. The infinity pool is unheated, but was warm enough to be pleasant even in March. The neighborhood is quiet with good walking, with a decent walking and cycling route out the bottom of the neighborhood to get to Alii Drive. Our adult children appreciated having their own bedrooms and bathrooms, and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen is spacious, and we enjoyed family meals on the lanai with lots fresh fish on the bbq. We plan to return for another relaxing stay!
Lucky 42 at Kona Bay Estates
Two grandparents, two parents, a four-year old, a one-year old and an uncle went into a wonderfully open house on the ocean near Kailua-Kona and didn't want to leave. They were lucky to be at Lucky42. Being an easy walking distance to the kids' beach made this location special for our grandkids. The pool at the house was an added plus, although the solar heater was not working while we were there. The house easily accommodated our set of people. The upstairs master suite was perfect for the grandparents, the separate upstairs bedroom worked well for the uncle, the four-year old enjoyed the bunk bed tucked in on the first floor, and one of the first floor bedrooms had dark enough curtains so the one year old could nap/sleep easily with his parents close by in the other bedroom. The large living room with fully openable doors brought in the delightful Hawaiian air and gave easy access to the pool (but required a vigilant eye on the one-year old crawler). The kitchen was well equipped with new appliances and the table big enough for our full group. We ate many meals there, also used the grill outside, but enjoyed the island's restaurants as well. Would highly recommend this house for a family vacation.
Kulalani at Mauna Lani 802
The pools and fitness facility are excellent and having access to the beach at the beach club (2.5 miles away) is a great asset to one's vacation. A few cruiser bikes would have made this place ideal for us as it is about 3/4 miles from the beach (at Fairmount) and a nice grocery store/shops/restaurants. it was described accurately
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our ten day stay at Mahuahua Place. Every aspect of the home was perfectly appointed for a wonderful stay. The home, pool, hot tub and landscape are kept immaculately. The peaceful view from the sizable lanai is restorative. We would recommend this home and the wonderful support system that is included to any family looking for a rental home in Kailua-Kona.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bay Watch. The house was clean, orderly, and stocked with with plenty of clean towels for both home and beach. The setting is simply amazing! We did encounter problems with the dishwasher and washing machine, both were handled professionally and expediently, and did not impact our stay. Having been an owner of a vacation rental, we understand that unexpected issues of this nature do arise from time to time. Thank you to Erin and the Kona Coast Vacations maintenance team, for the quick follow-up on issues. Collectively, our family felt that the only thing to improve the quality of our stay would have been having an additional 4 chaise lounges to match the number of guests, and perhaps a bistro set on the upper lanai, as the view is splendid from there.
