Makai means “towards the ocean,” as you certainly will be facing at this great condo! Wake up with the ocean breeze every morning in a Kona Makai vacation rental, and enjoy your coffee while gazing out at the beautiful blue expanse. Enjoy dining on your lanai, which overlooks the pool, ocean, and lovely landscaped grounds.
Cozy Kona Comfort
The Kona Makai condo is a spacious one-bedroom condo is a great spot for a honeymoon or romantic getaway, and is also able to accommodate small families, with sleeping space for four people. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the pool, hot tub, barbeque area, and tennis courts. The great location on Aliʻi Drive means you’re close to lots of popular swim and surf spots, and not far from all the action of town.
This part of the island is famous for so many reasons. Pretend you’re an athlete in the elite Ironman Triathlon as you go for your morning run. Feel like royalty of old as you enjoy the same special coastline as did King Kamehameha. Charter a deep-sea fishing boat, and get some practice in for the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament! Or just experience good, old-fashioned vacation enjoyment as you stroll through shops, farmers’ markets, and oceanfront restaurants. Don’t forget that sunset cocktail in a seaside bar!
Kona Coast Adventures
While Kona is a convenient location for both fun and necessities (Costco, anyone?), it’s also a great central spot for heading to adventures up and down the coast. To the north, you’ll find beautiful South Kohala beaches, with some of the finest winter whale watching in the world. At the end of the highway, gaze in awe at the amazing view from Pololū lookout, and browse the art galleries of the tiny towns of Hāwī and Kapaʻau. Stop at Puʻukoholā Heiau, the huge rock temple commissioned by Kamehameha as he embarked on his conquest of the Hawaiian islands.
If you venture south instead, you’ll pass through the fragrant coffee fields in the uplands of Kona. Stop at roadside stands for island fruits and the freshest Kona coffee you can buy! Spend an afternoon snorkeling at incredible Kealakekua Bay, or take a kayak tour to Captain Cook’s final resting place. Also check out Puʻuhonua o Hōnaunau, the place of refuge in ancient days. If you feel like a longer drive, go all the way south to Ka Lae, South Point, and gaze over the steep ocean cliffs into the deep sea below.
Whether you spend your days north or south, east or west, coming home at night in the Kona Makai Resort is the best!
