Thank you very much for this wonderful place to stay.

Very nice

by Becky D on 08/20/2019
Very nice

Perfect location

by Evan on 08/20/2019
We enjoyed our 10 day stay at Sea Village #4307. It was just far enough from town that we didn’t have noise or traffic, but still close enough to everything so we could enjoy happy hours, restaurants and shopping. The condo was large, comfortable and we loved the lanai with ocean view. Definitely a thumbs up.

Property is beautiful and well appointed. Bedrooms are airconditioned. Main part of house is HOT.

by Herb on 08/19/2019
Gorgeous spacious home. Well appointed. Summer weather was hot and humid and main areas of the house terribly uncomfortable. Bedrooms have ac so sleeping was good. Would not recommend unless you don't mind hot. Humid and sweating. Fans are fine if you have them blowing on you.

Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback about your recent stay. It was a pleasure to welcome you as our guest. Kona can be hot and humid at times and we are happy to hear you were able to sleep comfortably in the air conditioned bedrooms.

Lovely house in perfect location

by Imke on 08/19/2019
For the second time we rented this house at the "Islands“ of Mauna Lani. Great rooms with plenty of space for the whole family. Everything we needed was supplied, from kitchen to beach equipment. Great stay!

Clean unit! Perfect location!

by Kelly on 08/19/2019
We stayed at this property for 10 days. It was clean, stocked with the essentials (a small cooler would be a positive addition) and bug free! The air conditioning came in handy on the hot, July days. The washer and dryer are just a short walk down the hall and work VERY well. ($3.00 to wash and dry a load) Now, let’s talk about the view! Wow!!!! We enjoyed the lanai and watching sea turtles, an eel and lots of fish below. Happy hour drinks and appetizers next door at the Royal Kona were perfect while watching the sunset! Walking distance to downtown Kailua-Kona which made getting around easy. Thanks for making our stay comfortable and oh so wonderful!

Nothing less than fantastic!!!

by Rebekah on 08/19/2019
Property was as described if not better - It was comfortable, peaceful, logistically great relative to market, movies, dinner and more... Anything you could possibly need was available for you - If you should need anything else my favorite market KTA is 2 minutes away. My family lives in Kahalu'u Mauka (Holualoa), I always stay on my own (so we all still adore each other after our visits), I usually prefer to stay closer to the heart of Kailua-Kona town - This condo (only minutes away from Kailua-Kona town) however has sold me to the breeze, less traffic, logistics to all necessities, including trolley for the kids and more! I enjoyed morning walks to Keauhou Bay!!! Simply great! We go to Kona every year - I will seek to stay here again as my family loved it and we all can not wait to return - Mahalo for everything!!

Fantastic Apartment

by Diane on 08/19/2019
This is an amazing apartment and is exactly how it looks like in the listings. It was beautifully furnished throughout, very clean on arrival and very well equipped. The views are amazing from the balcony and we watched dolphins on our first morning. The location is perfect and very easy to get into town. The bedroom has an air-conditioning unit which works very well. The only criticism though, is that the lounge doesn’t have any air conditioning and although Information says that a sea breeze will cool the room, it doesn’t. We found it very difficult to relax in the front room with temperatures well over 90°. Otherwise, fantastic. Highly recommended.
Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback about your recent stay. It was a pleasure to welcome you as our guest and elated that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us.   Kona can be hot and humid at times and we are happy to hear you were able to sleep comfortably in the air conditioned bedroom.

Hale Akoa was great!!

by Christopher on 08/19/2019
Beautiful home. Exactly as pictured. It was immaculate, comfortable and included everything we could possibly need. Beautifully appointed yet extremely livable. The concierge, David, answered every question immediately and was very helpful. I would highly recommend this home and property management team.

Kona coast vacation properties was simply fabulous. Addressed every issue we had within a two hour period.

Beautiful property. Enjoyed every minute

by Amy on 08/19/2019
We will hopefully be back.


by Laura on 08/19/2019
Great location and excellent views. Easy to work with property managers. They were very good at sending emails and updates. Dishwasher needs an upgrade since dishes were not clean after using.

Aloha! On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important feedback. Please be assured that your concern has been shared with our management team to be addressed. We appreciate you taking the time to share them with us. On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help!


by David on 08/19/2019
Great Condo, Great View, Instruction well thought out.

Photos do not do it justice - Excellent home

by Justin on 08/17/2019
Great place to take a family- photos do not do it justice. 5 minutes from the main part of Kona I'm a quiet, gated community. Plenty of space and the lanai was excellent. Would stay here again without any doubt. Excellent home and the view from the backyard overlooking the ocean is amazing. Watched the sunset every night


by Shaun on 08/17/2019
Condo over looks the sea - views and ‘feel' amazing.

Good location

by Simon on 08/17/2019
Good location, close to Kona town but not too much so you still get tranquility. There is a small convenience store located in the complex which was handy for last minute purchases(both food and drinks !). The complex had two nice pools and a "artificial" beach with long chairs if you just want to relax by the water under palm trees. Everything was as expected and the unit included a bunch of small things that made our stay better : Cooler, beach umbrella, snorkelling gear, boogie board, beach towel and all kitchen cutlery/small appliances you could need. Would definitely rent again from Kona coast if coming back to the Big Island. We rented unit 306 in Casa de Emdeko and we were 2 adults and 2 kids(6 and 9).

Great condo

by Dejan on 08/17/2019
Great condo. Perfect for our family of 5. The place is well appointed, tastefully decorated and sparklingly clean. Location is great as long as you have a car. Pool was perfect as well. The only thing that could be better is air conditioning. The apartment has 2 portable AC units, one in each bedroom, but this is not enough to cool down the apartment during hot days, making the temperatures in the LR or the kitchen pretty high.

Fantastic place

by Matt on 08/17/2019
White Sands Village Unit 109 was a fantastic place for our family to spend the week. The location is superb, right across from La'aloa / Magic Sands Beach, just a couple of miles south of the heart of Kailua. Our kids spent hours at that beach daily and loved it. The Kahalu'u snorkel area is only about a mile south as well, another favorite place. Unit 109 has a convenient key code access, two bedrooms and two full bathrooms ( the master bedroom has one bath to itself, including washer and dryer), a well-equipped kitchen, a spacious indoor dining area, and a comfortable pullout living room sofa that also has plenty of room around it. Best of all, the balcony was a wonderful place to have breakfast every morning, offering a beautiful vista of the mountainside to the left, and a glance at the swimming pool on the right, all while remaining almost entirely shaded throughout the day. All in all, this is a very practical, well-kept unit in an unbeatable location.

Great views

by Tom on 08/17/2019
Great views and easy access with reserved parking. Bring extra towels if staying more than a few nights as only two bath and two beach are provided. You may want your own pillow as well if you prefer a firm pillow. Great sunsets and patio to enjoy them. It was also nice to have the air conditioning!

Magnificent scenery

by Seiichi on 08/17/2019
空港、コナコーストの中心地共に、車で15分以内の距離にあり便利です。山の中腹にあり、雨は降りますがとても涼しく、空調なしでも快適に過ごす事が出来ます。 視界を妨げるものが一切なく、高台からの壮大な景色は圧巻、プールやジャグジーにつかりながら眺める夕陽は壮大です。 建物も新しくきれい、インテリアもセンスが良く快適、庭の手入れも行き届いています。設備や備品は必要十分、常温保存できる調味料は大抵のものがあります。 (TRANSLATION: The airport and the center of the Kona coast are both within 15 minutes by car and are convenient. Located in the middle of the mountain, it rains, but it is very cool and you can spend it comfortably without air conditioning. The magnificent scenery from the hill is spectacular, and the sunset is magnificent as you watch the pool and juggle. The building is new and clean, the interior is well sensed and comfortable, and the garden is well maintained. Facilities and equipment are necessary. There are almost all seasonings that can be stored at room temperature.)

Met and exceeded our expectations!!

by Carla on 08/17/2019
Trust me, if you rent this unit, you won't be disappointed! Everything from the upgraded appliances to the spaciousness of the rooms, including bathrooms. This host provided everything you will need for a day at the beach, including towels, snorkel gear, a small cooler and an umbrella. I'm sure they could have helped us with planning excursions but our daughter and son-in-law live in Honolulu, and have been to the Big Island several times, so they planned our days. I can't say enough about the condo and the island. It met and exceeded our expectations!!

A great place to stay

by Mitul on 08/17/2019
This was our first time staying at the Big Island and also with Kona coast. We really enjoyed the house and the amenities, small touches and the location being so close to downtown. The place was very quiet with lots of privacy. A great place to stay with family and highly recommended


by Noriko on 08/17/2019
The place is nice, clean and well appointed. The unit's layout was perfect for two adults who can enjoy private spaces. The view from the lanai is very special. I highly recommend this resort to anyone.

Everything we needed

by Joyce on 08/17/2019
I appreciated the communication and everything we needed was there and ready for us.

Spectacular views of the ocean

by Hassib on 08/17/2019
We enjoyed our stay here very much. Very Close to a couple of very popular beaches where we went snorkeling and white sandy beach with great waves. Alii street has an interesting downtown to visit. Perfectly situated, close to shopping, airport and entertainment. The unit is in a gated clean and quiet community with spectacular views of the ocean. The unit is nicely equipped with all the necessary amenities. The host was very responsive.


by Hollis on 08/15/2019
Kona Coast Vacations does an excellent job of vacation rental management. We have now rented from them twice. Both properties were clean and well maintained. Communication is easy. Prices are reasonable. We’ll rent through them again!


by Alisha on 08/15/2019
I stayed at Country Club Villas on the Big Island and it was wonderful, they had everything you could want and need in the condo. They had all the amenities. And the customer service was also awesome. A+++++, Thank You Kona Coast Vacations


by Maria on 08/15/2019
Kona Coast Vacations came through for us at the last minute when our original VRBO double booked. Alicia was so helpful and made sure we were comfortable in our condo and went out of her way to help us. She has amazing customer service and I would definitely book with this company again and highly recommend them. They used the utmost professionalism and I am so glad to have done business with this great company.


by Jaimi on 08/15/2019
We stayed at Honu House on the Kona side. It was the perfect for us. KCV was very responsive, the house was clean and comfortable with anything we needed. I would recommend KCV and will use them again for our next visit.


by Tanita on 08/15/2019
We stayed in a 4BR, 3.5 BA house in Kona Bay Estates. The house was beautiful with all the amenities we needed, and the view was amazing. The location was very convenient, walkable to 2 beaches and a lovely walking path (old Kona airport). We would recommend this rental and would love to come back. Very professionally run.

If ever on the Big Island, consider using KCV

by Kenneth (Ken) on 08/09/2019
Had a wonderful stay at the Honu House from Kona Coast Vacations. The interior was top notch and the grounds & pool immaculate. The house sits on a hill and has a view of the Pacific. A short walk down a pig path and you will see an amazing sunset. If ever on the Big Island, consider using KCV. David (concierge) was also a big help scheduling horse ride, kayaking, and suggesting other sightseeing adventures.

Completely Satisfied Customer

by Ryan on 08/09/2019
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

It's a very beautiful place! We loved it

by Peter on 08/09/2019
We had a very nice holiday, it's a very beautiful place! We loved it. The only regret is not to have taken advantage of the condo and the place where it was located.


by Marina on 08/09/2019
Our rental at the Villages # 512 was perfect. The 3 bdr is fully equipped, each bedroom has its own full bathroom. The rental has everything one can think of, even snorkeling gear and boogie boards. The cherry on the cake is the beautiful sandy beach, which is 5 minute drive. We're looking forward to returning again to this piece of heaven on the Big Island.


by Donna on 08/09/2019
My middle son recently moved to the big island so we decided to take a family trip and bring our whole family together. We stayed at the Kahalu'u Beach Villas 303. It was a gorgeous place to stay. We had a great concierge service through the vacation rental and they were easy to contact. The beach was right across the street and perfect for snorkeling. The pool was beautiful and turned into our nightly habit of winding down. We kept the insects at bay by following the directions Kona Coast Vacations provided. The last couple of days we were a little more relaxed and noticed a difference in a few bugs. It was a dream family vacation!

Everything was perfect

by Laura on 08/08/2019
This was very nice place to stay. Everything was perfect and we loved having the cooler to use.

Absolutely Amazing!

by Elizabeth on 08/08/2019
We stayed at Royal Sea Cliff in unit 109, and it was absolutely amazing. The property was right on the ocean, and the condo was very spacious and comfortable with all the amenities we could ever want. It has a huge lanai which we enjoyed using for our morning coffee and our glass of wine at sunset. There were also pool toys for the kids, and plenty of beach gear for us which was very useful. The grounds are lovely, and the building is well maintained and cleaned. We had an issue with one of the bathroom doors that had gotten off the track, and Kona Coast was very attentive, and sent a handyman out the next day to fix it. The unit is definitely a little pricier, but it was well worth the money spent, and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. The only recommendation I would give is to update their cable tv to maybe provide Netflix or at least to have a working tv guide. When we wanted to watch a show at night, we had to manually flip through each channel to find a show, because the digital guide said "no information" for each channel. But this was an insignificant detail compared to everything else that was awesome with the unit. We would love to stay here again if we're ever on the Big Island again!

Awesome house!

by Michelle on 08/08/2019
This was an awesome house. It exceeded my expectations. The house is beautiful, authentic, dramatic entry way and stairway, downstairs pool area was perfect. Rooms were spacious, perfect for our group of 8.

You cannot beat the location and the view!

by Emma on 08/08/2019
You cannot beat the location and the view! Perfect for 4 people to stay for a week if your primary location on the island is Kona. Kitchen amenities were ideal as we didn't want to eat out for every meal. The beds were nice, bathrooms were roomy and clean, and plenty of fans to combat the heat and humidity. WiFi was a nice plus! Had extra beach towels and coolers which we definitely used on our treks out. Quick walk to Green Flash coffee which was soooooo good! Thanks so much for a fantastic place to stay! We enjoyed the view greatly! Access to the lava rocks and tide pools was a plus! All the extra fans around were lifesavers from all the heat and humidity.

A great place

by Chris on 08/08/2019
A great place. Would definitely stay there again. The place was great overall. It was clean and spacious with great amenities and views.

Great location

by Ville on 08/08/2019
Great location just from Kona Magic Sands. Nice grill in the first floor, but other restaurants and stores are a bit far.

Lovely and very tastefully refurbished

by Martin on 08/08/2019
The whole property was immaculate and beautifully set on the shore. Also our apartment was lovely and very tastefully refurbished. Actually one of the best among 5 similar rentals during our 2 months on different islands of Hawaii. We only had one issue: there was only Aircon in the living room. The bedroom was super hot and stuffy and we found it impossible to sleep there. We ended up sleeping on the not so comfortable sofa bed in the living room because of this. It wasn’t clear from the booking the that bedroom is without aircon. If I would have known I would have opted for a different property.

Mahalo for having been our guest and for taking the time to share with us your recent stay.  We are pleased to learn that you enjoyed your stay.
We hope to see you again the next time you return to the Big Island.  While some of the properties we manage do not have AC throughout the entire condo, others do.  We manage over 260 properties and would be happy to help you find one that has central AC.

Clean and convenient unit

by Ronny on 08/08/2019
Condo was clean and as described. Unit was within 15 minutes walk to farmer's market and restaurants (Broke Da Mouth, Umeke's). Walmart, airport and harbor are within 10-20 minutes drive. One star reduction was for the master bedroom mattress that was too soft for us. Overall, good unit to consider if you are stay.

Great location with an awesome view

by Lisa on 08/08/2019
We had a great stay at 12F in Hali i Kai. The unit was very spacious and in a great location with an awesome view of the ocean!! We loved having access to the King’s course with the owner’s membership. We played two rounds of golf. A couple of suggestions….hopefully the owners plan to change the flooring soon. It looks worn out. Also, the beds are a bit uncomfortable and make a lot of noise when you move around. Not sure why

Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important feedback.

Please be assured that your concerns have been shared with our management team & property owner. We appreciate you taking the time to share them with us.  On you next visit, please know that we are available if you need us – we are happy to help!  We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.

Hawaiian dream home

by Scott on 08/05/2019
This is undoubtedly the best VRBO I have ever stayed in. The house and yard are amazing. The owners have thought of everything with great furnishings and well stocked kitchen. We ate all our meals at the house as we didn't want to leave. We swam every day and slept so good at night as the neighborhood is so quiet. After paying $50 per night to park in Honolulu, it was so nice to have free parking in our own driveway. The management company couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. After a late and long flight from the mainland it was so nice to go directly to the house and have the lights and a/c already turned on by the management company. We are already planning our next stay here!

Kona Vacation

by Jeff on 08/05/2019
Overall, this property is extremely nice and well maintained and located reasonably close to town and nice beaches. House is well appointed and had a great pool and views. Indoor and outdoor cooking setup were great. Had every utensil/appliance/dish you could need. The doors and fans work great to open the home up and cool the place too. Lack of AC was not an issue which was one of my initial big worries. Only a couple of issues that would have made me select 4.5 stars if possible (settled on 5 stars because the house is so nice and the property management company was very responsive). The views are slightly obstructed by two new properties being built across the street and down the hill - though we were disappointed by this and worried about construction noise at first it ended up only being a minor nuisance. You can see the lots being built in the photos so you have to imagine a house in those photos - look like single story dwellings though. (One was at framing stage and the other was foundation laying during our stay in early/mid July). The other issue was we had a surprising number of appliance issues given how nice the house is. The fridge wasn't cooling properly and we had to call on that - ended up a recurring issue where we reset the breaker which seemed to work. The dishwasher broke at some point (easy enough that a slightly handy person could fix it), and probably most annoying was we had several clothing articles damaged in the dryer so caution if you are using the dryer for more delicate items. It was also a bit odd given how much the rental costs that we weren't given control of the pool fountains and they were purely set to a timer. I get it that people are irresponsible and energy is expensive in Hawaii, but it would have been nice to have control so we could turn them on and off (especially to drown out some of the construction noise). Maybe an on button with an auto shut off would be a better solution. Overall these are pretty minor nits and both families thoroughly enjoyed the stay. We would consider coming back for sure.

Didn't want to leave

by Cindy on 08/05/2019
We had 5 kids and 6 adults. The property allowed privacy for each family and a separate place for kids. It had everything we have at home in the kitchen. The pool toys for the kids were great

Great stay

by Alasdair on 08/05/2019
Condo was very well set up with everything needed and comfortable and the property as a whole was great and everyone was friendly ... we loved it and would highly recommend to anyone.

Perfect Family Getaway

by Lisa on 08/05/2019
Our family of 4 enjoyed this lovely condominium. It was completely decked out in Hawaiian decor to give you the full Hawaiian vibe. Our unit was conveniently located right across from the pool and gym. It had all the appliances needed. Beautiful view of the golf course from back patio, where we shared plenty of meals.

We had a fabulous time!

by Linda on 08/05/2019
The Condo was absolutely perfect for my daughter, her husband and three granddaughters. It was equipped with everything you could possibly want. The view was spectacular!! The location was so convenient to everything..

Honeymoon in Hawaii

by Jana on 08/05/2019
It was right on the ocean and we enjoyed seeing and hearing the ocean waves any time we were there. Very close proximity to eating/entertainment. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent penthouse with a lanai and a view you wont forget

by Dustin on 08/05/2019
This penthouse was almost perfect. The lanai with the view is well worth the price alone. The property is very clean and very well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook or bbq. There are ceiling fans and ac units in each room which makes the entire place very comfortable to relax in . There was only one day we actually stayed home and enjoyed the unit but the temp was 91 degrees and humid which overpowered the ac units and fans so we ended up walking across the street to the beach. Our only issue was the private elevator. Our flight was delayed so we did not get to the house until around 1am. We put our bags in the elevator, closed the outside door and then the folding door and hit floor 2. The elevator started to go up and then it stopped. My wife pushed the buttons which did nothing and she tried to open the folding door but could not so we started to freak out a bit. Then i tried and was able to open the folding door but the outside door was locked. For whatever i looked at the top of the outside door and saw a metal sheet on the door and the door jamb so i assumed it was some sort of security sensor. we gave the outside door a couple of shakes, closed the folding door, pushed 2nd floor and the elevator took us up. Any other time it happened we followed the same steps and it worked like a charm. There are stairs but the elevator is very useful after a day of shopping and checking in and out and its your own private elevator! Aside from that the living space, the lanai and the view was perfect!!!

Million dollar view

by VéRonique on 08/05/2019
The pictures don't lie. This condo is beautiful, very clean and the view is amazing. Taking the breakfast on the lanai to the sound of the waves crashing was my favorite part of the day. Great spot to watch the sunset too! The condo is fully equipped (we loved that there was a blender to make smoothies) and it also has beach gears, including a cooler. We had some hesitations renting through a company instead of dealing directly with the owner, but the staff at Kona Coast Vacation Rentals was very nice and quick to respond. We had a problem with the wi-fi and they sent someone to fix it within the next two hours. Check-in was a breeze and we loved having a lock with a code on the door instead of using a key. The only thing that was less enjoyable (as others have mentioned before) is that the condo did get very hot during the afternoon. During the warmer days, it remained hot at night also. It would have been impossible to sleep without the a/c in the bedroom. But they do have ceiling fans and 3 extra portable fans. That being said, this is a great unit in a very nice, quiet and well maintained complex. We would rent it again.

Perfect spot for a group

by Marlis on 08/05/2019
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!

Nicer than expected

by Thomas on 08/05/2019
This is an amazing property. The pictures, although beautiful, didn’t do it justice. It was centrally located to many activities, convenient to shopping and restaurants, yet quiet and private. A perfect location. The only possible improvement would be central A/C in the mother-in-law suite, as we were there during a hot week in June. Many thanks to owners and property manager for sharing this gorgeous home with our family. Mahalo

The beautiful Hawaiian Honu House

by Wendy on 08/05/2019
This property is fantastic. Beautiful and a great location. The home is beautifully decorated, but totally comfortable. We never got out of the pool, it's wonderful. It was a perfect vacation getaway for all of us.

Breathtaking Experience

by Tory on 08/05/2019
A beautiful home with more amenities a person could want. Be aware of the island wide 9pm quiet hour but other than that it was more than I could ask for.

Paradise in Kona

by David on 08/05/2019
The property was as beautiful as the photos! Very private , extremely well located for activities!

Kona trip

by Saloumeh on 08/05/2019
Nice condo.

The best!

by Yudelca on 08/05/2019
This place is beautiful and so comfortable, and has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. It's very spacious and open we enjoyed drinking coffee every morning in the Lanai. It's a great location with easy access to beaches, restaurants and shopping. Looking forward to our next stay.

Beautiful Home in paradise, great value

by Jessica on 08/05/2019
Great value for the money and location. The home is large and private with a great outdoor space, inclusive of a beautiful pool. The concierge service is very helpful and easy to use. We loved cooking in the kitchen, swimming in the pool and picking limes, mangos and pomegranates from the trees at the top of the hill. We got to meet the gardeners and their sweet dog. Short walk to Magic sands beach and grill ( which is very good). The only reason we did not rate this 5 stars, is the bedding quality and the pests. Although you are in Hawaii and it a part of the experience, we would have liked to be better informed. The house is sprayed for bugs, but we still encountered more than a few of Hawaii's wonderful centipedes. We were concerned because we had a young child with us. The property manager was very helpful with addressing all of our concerns.

Lovely home for us

by Corinne on 08/05/2019
This property had everything we needed in spades. Comfortable furnishings, plenty of beautiful space indoor & out, reliable WIFI for when I had to work. Close enough to shopping and a great restaurant Pueo’s Osteria. We would definitely stay here again on a return visit.

Breathtakingly beautiful!

by Jacqueline on 08/05/2019
Thank you for a wonderful stay for my family while our daughter was getting married here in Kailua! The house is everything we wanted it to be and more! We are leaving with many happy memories! Thank you again!

Umpteenth visit to Hawaii

by Gary on 08/05/2019
Hawaii is a good relaxation place. This house is well-located for convenience. It has everything you need to arrive and lay back. Good security and assistance when needed.

Amazing Condo

by Terri on 08/04/2019
The condo is amazing with so many amenities. It's beautifully decorated with a tropical atmosphere. The complex is very quiet too! What a great place with so much aloha! It was a perfect stay and we will be back!

Dolphin Cove

by Lotte on 08/04/2019
This should be called dolphin cove . On some days the dolphins are jumping right outside in the ocean. The bedrooms and bathrooms are sparkling clean and nice but the place is a bit old and the carpets not so nice. Kitchen very old and some utilities just very old, poor quality. Still, good value

Great space with amazing views

by Matt on 08/04/2019
Great property with amazing views

Great Location

by Lars on 08/04/2019
Great location! Easy walk to Kahaluu Beach and easy drive or Uber trip to downtown Kona. Very spacious unit with comfy lanai and floor plan. King size bed and large bathroom was a definite plus!

Very Good

by Lena on 08/04/2019
This place is very good. The view is amazing, the beds are very comfortable, the pool area is nice and clean. You can walk to restaurants, but might need a car. The place is carpeted, we would have preferred stone floor. The kitchen is a bit outdated. The washing machine is excellent 🙂 The check-in process was very easy and well communicated.

Great Place

by Leonardo on 08/04/2019
Great place, easy walk to everything

Great Condo!

by Rob on 08/04/2019
Great condo at a wonderful location. The condo has everything you need, including beach chairs, towels, body board and snorkeling equipment. The lanai is very confortable and relaxing. Only downside is the fact that you hear everything the neighbors upstairs are doing. Still very much recommended!

The location is unparalleled.

by Adam on 08/03/2019
The location is unparalleled. The unit is surrounded on three sides by water and the views are fantastic. The unit is the furthest one from the road and all you can hear is the surf. The landscaping is beautiful.The furniture and fixtures are a bit dated and worn and this is not reflected in the photos.

Excellent place

by Angela Z on 08/01/2019
Plenty of room, well stocked with all he necessary cooking supplies, great view, easy check in, lots of beach toys, can sleep over 6 if you are ok with the floor, but there is plenty of floor space. Only 1 wall a.c. unit in 1 bedroom so 95 degree days in the summer are rough but doable. The property manager was quite rude several times which is where the 1 star comes from. Older guy with an attitude. Even yelled from the golf course at us not to hang towels on the railing- we knew better but he put on the show of a 2 year old that wanted his candy. Anyways, would absolutely stay again and highly recommend.

Kona Vacation

Property was great! Great location!

Beau condo

by André on 08/01/2019
Beau condo très propre et bien situé je le recommande.

Lovely property, perfect vacation spot!

by Deanna on 08/01/2019
We really enjoyed our time in Kona and this beautiful condo was the perfect spot, the only thing that could have made it better was a longer stay. This condo is newly renovated and perfectly done, the beds and bedding were everything described by other renters, comfy, clean, soft and comparable to a 5 star hotel. If I ever have the opportunity to male it back, I would love to stay here at Casa De Emdeko 116!! Thank you!

In the heart of Kona

by Cassie on 08/01/2019
This property has a wonderful location if you want to be within walking distance of all the shops/restaurants in Kona. We loved listening to the ocean crashing outside and seeing the sunsets.

Hidden Gem

by Joel on 08/01/2019
Cute 3 bedroom, 3 bath lofted condo just a couple of minutes away from great beaches and tourist area. Yet far enough away if you want quiet. Listed exactly as described. Comes with beach towels, basic cleaning (personal and household), beach chairs and small portable coolers. Walmart and Safeway only about 10 minutes away and on way from airport Also come with bonus concierge Service

Beautiful Home Away from Home!

by Jill on 08/01/2019
We just loved this house! Plenty of room and stocked with everything we needed. Conveniently located to Kona and in a quiet neighborhood. Great for exploring or just staying in and spending time in the infinity pool enjoying the view. Check in was a breeze. Communication was superb - great concierge who helped with snorkeling and Luau reservations. Fully air conditioned. Even had a washer and dryer! My family and I hope to make it back again!! Thanks for a great stay!!

Amazing property

by Stuart on 08/01/2019
Positives:Beautiful house well equipped with great pool, very quiet gated community. Convenient .very secure. Great for large group....plenty of space. Good WiFi and cable in every room . Grocery store, takeout etc 6mins away, 15mins from Kailua restaurants etc. 20mins from harbor for tours. Great pool with sunset views. Overall we loved it and enjoyed being at the house hanging at the pool or in the Lana’i. Good star watching Cons; No AC it got very hot and stuffy some nights we were there in July. Cook top and second shower head in bathroom and safe were broken. We didn’t complain as it didn’t affect us We cooked outside and got take out. 2 hour drive to the volcano park and Hilo and one hour from best beach Hapuna. Lots of towels but no beach chairs or boogie boards. Would have been great to have a good umbrella and chairs but you can rent them at hapuna.

Aloha! On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this feedback.

On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help!

 We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.

Kona 2019 Vacation at Kawena 5

by Linda on 08/01/2019
This is an amazing property. Great layout and close to everything. There were 10 adults and we had plenty of space to relax. Our concierge, David, was awesome. We booked 4 great tours through David. He knows the island and the best tours. I highly recommend this house and will stay here again.

Cozy,Comfortable, great location!!!

by Martin on 08/01/2019
We stayed here in July for two weeks. Beautiful views, clean, very comfortable , easy access to main highways, and quiet! I could go on and on how much we loved this place. It became our home away from home. Look forward to staying here again. Management & Kona concierge very helpful with quick responses if needed. Thank you.

Awesome Big Island Family Vacation!

by Michael on 08/01/2019
As a first-time VRBO user, I was a little concerned how things would go, but I am so glad I trusted the reviews, photos and description for this property. It was AWESOME!! We are a family of five, with a 19, 17 and 16 year old. We all loved this house. The layout is very family friendly, with the master suite on the second floor, separate from the other rooms. The house is super clean and very well furnished. All of the beds were comfy. Our favorite “room” was the second floor outdoor deck, with great breeze, comfy chairs and fantastic views. The house is more than well stocked with household and beach items, and everything is easy to find and labeled; so there is no wondering how to use anything. Also, the photos don’t do the little beach out the back gate justice. When the tide comes in, there is definitely good swimming available, particularly good for smaller kids. The pool is small but nice. The location of the house is also very convenient to downtown Kailua, an easy walk to Alii street, where the main drag stuff happens. If you want to work out, there are also a couple good gym options in walking distance, off of Palani. Finally, there are supermarkets, a Target and Walmart within 5 minute drives and a Costco about a 10 minute drive back toward the airport. Again, we loved this house and would not hesitate to come back again.

The property was very nice. Every thing was there for your needs

by Gerard on 08/01/2019
The experience was easy. Everything was there for your needs. The property has no AC but they provided plenty of fans

Gorgeous Beach House!

by Jason on 08/01/2019
Gorgeous views, beautiful large house was perfect for our family. Great location with nearby Keiki beach. Clean and air conditioned! Check in very smooth. Property was as advertised. The house was absolutely wonderful and the back lanai offered breathtaking views.

Paradise in D203

by Lorna on 08/01/2019
We LOVED this condo! It was perfect for us! We spent so much time on the balcony and the pool. It's in a great location. Could walk to the beach and to the grocery store. Could not have been more perfect!! Really appreciated that there was hand soap, paper towels, dishwashing liquid and pods. They really thought of everything!!

Nice place

by Katsumi on 08/01/2019
Excellent place, very clean, would stay again.


by Esben on 08/01/2019
En rigtig god oplevelse. Flot hus det levede op til beskrivelsen. Der var rent ved ankomsten der var alt det vi skulle bruge. God beliggenhed.

10E was fabulous

by Trish on 08/01/2019
This was our 3rd time at Halii Kai. We stayed in 10E - ground floor, 3 bedroom unit. Close walk to the Ocean Club. The living room was a bit tighter than on a 2bdrm, but the 3 rooms were great. The two teens got their own space, though their windows faced the east so they got the morning sun. We had ocean view from the lanai, and plenty of light from through the side windows. Kitchen was amazingly equipped. Henckel knives, Riedel wine glasses, plenty of spices. The coffee cups were good sized. There was coffee grinder and maker, blender, toaster, rice cooker, tons of dishes, bowls, pitchers, even a salad spinner! I really appreciated the supplied basics: laundry soap, bath bar soap, hand soap, dish soap, and toilet paper and paper towels. Plenty of bath towels, even cosmetic face wash cloths. There were 8 beach towels in the unit. We couldn't park in the garage, but we had access to its contents: 4 Tommy Bahama beach chairs and umbrella, plus 4 boogie boards. We left the 4 boogie boards and pool noodles we had bought earlier there in the garage. Also had tennis rackets and balls. There were also ice packs in the freezer for the cooler. The wood floors were gorgeous. If it had been winter, I would have had the gorgeous lanai doors wide open! It's always a question if a place is as good as you remember. Halii Kai delivers. The complex is quiet. Part of the Waikoloa resort but separate; I think the Hilton golf course barrier gives it a more airy feel. The Ocean Club is amazing. My kids (now 17 and 14) still enjoy the pool. Yes, they can't throw balls or do major horseplay, but did they have fun - yes. Lots of marco polo. Kids met many other kids and hung out with them at the pool. The place is soooo friendly. We chatted with other guests and some owners. The staff at the Ocean Club are great. I can't believe it's the same people who've been there since our first trip, and it speaks volumes to the quality of the establishment. Pool towels provided as is lemon water. My kids enjoyed the virgin passionfruit daiquiris. The complex has tennis and basketball courts; you can check out the equipment at the front desk if needed. It fronts the ocean and the lava-rock Kings Trail; we took it over to the Black Sand beach. You don't have direct beach access from this complex, but you drive to the best beaches anyway (Hapuna, Mauna Kea). A-Bay, just a mile away, is nice for snorkeling and okay for swimming, and has parking lot . I would stay here again!

Good place for the cost for a family of five

by Jennifer on 08/01/2019
Location was perfect! Right across the magic sands beach! The place we stayed at looks like they are in process of updating. The furniture and floors were nice. The living room couch turns into a bed which one of our kids used and had no complaints. The bedrooms have lots of hangers for your clothes, spare sheets, pillows, and blankets if needed. Extra towels & beach towels were in the hall closet. The pool was nice but deep! Not a lot of shallow areas for kids so can get crowded if a bunch of younger kids are there at the same time. Everyone we met were very nice. The balcony was big with lots of space/seating (no outdoor light for at night) and they had beach stuff to barrow during your stay (chairs, boogie boards, cooler, etc.). They did provide cleaning supplies to run dishwasher, bags for trash and to wash the towels etc (would be nice if dryer sheets were also provided but obviously not a big deal. We used our own laundry detergent to do all the wash bc we had more than a one time use which is what they provide - not sure if you can get more from the office). Our two complaints are the WiFi wasn’t great, we had a hard time getting it to work on our cellphones so we used a lot of our data (we did not complain about this to management just dealt with it) and the mater bedroom shower wasn’t clean when we arrived. But overall it was a good place with a great location! We would come back!
Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback about your recent stay. It was a pleasure to welcome you as our guest, and we’re happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. The owner has been busy updating & more updating is scheduled so you’ll come back to an even better unit next time! We will pass these comments along to the owner as well. In an effort to keep costs down, our properties provide a starter pack of supplies only, and we do inform our guests of this in the Rental Agreement. Some units may contain an additional supply as we do leave any supplies purchased by guests in the unit. On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us, we are happy to help!

Kona Heaven

by Rhonda on 08/01/2019
Absolutely beautiful property. All the comforts of home. We were there for 6 nts/5 days and enjoyed every bit of it. If there wasn't an ocean or tons of activities on the island, we never would've left the house! The fabulous kitchen was loaded with the necessary tools to cook if you chose to (including a crock pot and rice cooker!) which was a huge bonus. The refrigerator is awesome. I will be on the hunt for it when I return home! VERY comfortable beds. The ohana room was very nice; no AC but we knew that when we booked so nothing I'm complaining about. We thought about picking up a portable cooler but it wasn't necessary since we were out and about all day and the nights were fine. Plenty of bathroom towel sets for the house (great bonus) along with lots of large pool towels (another great bonus). Everything was so new and clean; we didn't lack for a single thing. We rent homes/condos every year sometimes 2-3 times a year. This is definitely one to repeat when we return. We're a family that loves to play corn hole and found a set that we bought on the island. We left them behind for the next family to enjoy!!

Great location

by Elizabeth on 08/01/2019
Truly special. Lovely condo overlooking the water, cooled by trade winds. Lanai is wonderful; we could sit there and watch the ocean and listen to the waves crashing all day. The nearby white sand beaches are protected by the rocks, so it’s possible to swim or beach-comb or see turtles—be aware that you do have to walk over rocks to get to the sand. Unit is comfortable, well-equipped, nicely decorated. You could stock up on food and never have to leave. We hope to return.

Beautiful spot

by Clive on 07/31/2019
Perfect location, ample parking, lovely furnishings, nice pools, A/C worked good but several registers leaked condensate water on kitchen and dining room floors and guest bed wall. I'd recommend it.

Kamilo house on the Big Island was like being at our own private resort

by Debbie on 07/31/2019
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!! 

Big Island Vacation

by Perry on 07/31/2019
First time to the big island and the was a perfect place to stay. Close to some of the best beaches on the island and convenient drive to Kona. Condo was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed and parking was perfect. Would highly recommend, and would definitely use again.

Awesome family trip!

by Allison on 07/31/2019
Property was even better in person! It was very clean and well appointed. The location was spectacular! The views of the ocean and tropical fish ponds were beautiful! We loved spending time at the beautiful beach just a short walk down the path. Our kids loved stopping along the way to find fish in the ponds. We spent an entire day at the beach snorkeling for hours....we even had 2 sea turtles swim past us. We would come back in a heartbeat! Thanks for an amazing time in paradise!

Great location, layout and convenience

by Susanne on 07/31/2019
The Unit was very clean and well stocked. Bedrooms and bathrooms were exactly as shown in the photos. Our kids used the ping pong table on the ground floor nearly every evening. We enjoyed relaxing on the lanai with a nice ocean breeze after snorkeling in Kahaluu bay. The best part: The location is fabulous! Fantastic snorkeling across the street, or only a short drive if you want to go to Captain Cook or Two Step. We used the condo as a base for exploring the island.

Great stay

by Joe on 07/31/2019
This was perfect location and minutes away from beach. Very clean and beautiful place. Definitely coming back next year!!

Great Location!

by Michelle on 07/28/2019
Would stay here again it's in a great location close to town, pool was great and the views were amazing!


by Grant on 07/28/2019
Fabulous property! Really nice view and plenty of space and privacy.

Enjoyed Our Stay!

by Leah on 07/28/2019
Our family enjoyed our stay very much. This is a very comfortable townhouse with many great amenities. Perfect location as part of Mauna Lani.. pool is a short walk and private beach access and the Mauna Lani Beach club is a 3 min car ride away. We had a wonderful time and would absolutely book again.

Absolutely Beautiful Home

by Jessica on 07/28/2019
Absolutely beautiful home! Plenty of space for everyone! The house has everything you can need and more! The only downfall is there is no air conditioning. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone and would love to stay again!

Gorgeous Apartment

by Andreea on 07/28/2019
Gorgeous apartment with everything you can possibly need for an amazing vacation ! Highly recommend !

Great for Our Honeymoon!

by Sebastian on 07/28/2019
This place was great for our honeymoon! Convenient to downtown (where we did a bunch of diving), but walking distance to a great snorkeling spot, nice for slower-paced days when you don't want to drive anywhere. The lanai is a nice place to hang out, eat dinner, and watch the sun set over the ocean. The fully equipped kitchen was nice too.

Loved it!

by Christine on 07/26/2019
We stayed at The Orchid Inn in Kona and it was beautiful! Amazing views and you can see the sun setting. Big kitchen and nice open space for the living room, dining area and kitchen. Whomever decorated did a really nice job on the place. The gardens surrounding the property are stunning with lots of flowers blooming. There were lychee fruit growing up high in the trees and it must have been the groundskeepers who cut down a branch full of lychee and left it on the front porch for us - they were yummy! There is a long private driveway so there is some space between the homes there. Privacy and lots of birds singing. They do have a few roosters that wake up early so you may need some earplugs for that (they have lots of disposable available at the house), but if you have been to Hawaii you know that the roosters are a familiar voice. The beds were also very comfortable! Very handy to have a washer and dryer. It is about a 10 minute drive down the hill to get to the center of Kona Kailua, but the drive is easy and actually quite lovely with all the beautiful trees and plants growing there. Really enjoyed our stay!


by Jessica on 07/24/2019
Found a really great condo with Kona Coast that met our needs. Two beds, 2 full baths. The ground floor was really nice as the lanai opened to the lawn and a pond/ waterfalls just 20 feet or so away. Very soothing and nice spot to enjoy our morning cup of Kona coffee! Waikoloa is the place to be on the Big Island. Not crowded and close to the Hilton for a pool day of fun and Dolphin Quest swim. Appreciated the concierge service provided and got to a wonderful luau and delightful dinner cruise through them. The condo was really comfortable and the washer/dryer were great to have!! Highly recommend!


by Catherine on 07/24/2019
This management company does a great job. The condo I rented was extremely well appointed. Plenty of linens, towels, beach towels etc. The place was spotless and everything worked with lots of how to tips so you actually knew how things worked. Good communication as well.


by Mary on 07/24/2019
Perfect setting! Kona Bali Kai is right on the water. We have stayed in two of these units now, and have loved each one. We watched surfers, para-sailing, and beautiful sunsets from the lanai. Clean and well managed, great kitchen. We highly recommend, and look forward to a stay in the future.

This unit overlooks the pool and the ocean

by Ken on 07/24/2019
I stayed in unit 107 at the Holualoa Bay Villas which is very spacious. It’s one of only four units with a complete wrap around lanai. The owners have done a beautiful job of decorating which will really put you in the aloha spirit. They have included every amenity possible; the best equipped kitchen I’ve seen! This unit overlooks the pool and the ocean. The pool is clean and a comfortable temperature. Location is close to many restaurants and shops.


by Kirsty on 07/24/2019
The place we stayed at was amazing, completely stocked with everything but food (obviously). Well maintained, clean, what was advertised was what we got. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on Big Island.

We would stay here again and again and again!

by Meredith on 07/24/2019
The condo was bigger than we imagined and thoughtfully appointed. The bed was VERY comfortable-I can't believe we forgot to check the brand before we left! The salt water pool?!? The man-made beach?!? Not much need to leave the property once your fridge is stocked! We would stay here again and again and again!


by Teri on 07/24/2019
Kona Coast Vacations is awesome to work with! I really appreciate their attention to our comfort and their prompt response to any requests we had. You couldn't beat the great location of our rental.

Awesome—will stay again!

by Jennifer on 07/22/2019
Exactly as described. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt at home. Had a late night flight and was allowed to stay at condo until evening. Great condo and would definitely stay again!

Great place

by Emmalani on 07/18/2019
Great place ! Had a nice time staying here , everything we expected ^_^

This is a great stay!

by Nathan on 07/18/2019
Kona Coast's "Puuwai Place" was our second Air BnB home on our first trip experience using Air BnB's as our stay, and we were not disappointed. For us, the promo picture of the pool with the Ocean behind palm trees was not an exaggeration. Sunsets took place behind those palms, and we set our clock for the evening show every night. Beautiful! Kona Coast was very quick to respond to our questions and requests for recommendations -- including their concierge, David. Directions and instructions were clear, and many side trips were offered. There was also an information notebook in an obvious place that had been put together with specific information relative to the house and things to do and see in and around Kona. We found that very helpful. Check in and out were a breeze. Directions and instructions were easy to follow and rules were very fair and expected. Very quiet neighborhood. This stay included the entire, very spacious 2 story house (minus the garage). It had a long private driveway with plenty of off street parking at the house for at least 2 cars and probably 2 more down the private drive road a bit -- at an almost parking lot. Rooms were very spacious and very well furnished. Wall hangings throughout were beautiful. The front door was at the top of exterior steps leading to the 2nd floor. Once thru the door opening into a hall, the master bedroom (w/ master bathroom and walk-in closet) was to the right (above the garage), and to the left was living room, dining room, kitchen, and half bathroom (with laundry room). The bottom floor (ground level) had the garage, 2 more bedrooms, bathroom, and game room with a sofa bed. Both master bathroom and downstairs bathroom had a separate tub and step-over shower with wand showerheads. All these rooms was gorgeous. Although there is no air conditioning, most rooms had ceiling fans and lots of windows that provided a wonderful breeze. We were quite comfortable. Beds were also very comfortable. Back decks on the top floor spanned across the whole side - a lot of room to hang out. We loved having a pool there. It was very clean and refreshing. It is treated with salts so no chlorine to smell and that was a plus for us. Location was great. There was an fairly steep uphill drive to get there, but that put us up on the hill for the great view. This would likely not be the best place for those with mobility issues because most of the common living areas were upstairs, but was perfect for us. Very clean, well stocked, and we were welcomed with their welcome pack that included chocolates, nuts, cookies, salt and spices, and the like. Kitchen was stocked with cooking/food prep items (pots, pans, etc.) more than we imagined. This is a great stay!

Staying at this condo was great.

by Alex on 07/18/2019
Staying at this condo was great. The location, right on kahuluu bay was perfect. We were able to walk to surf, snorkel and time on the small beach. The condo itself had everything we needed and the extra amenities were great. Thank you for a great stay.

Absolutely Amazing!

by Luuly on 07/18/2019
Absolutely amazing, the view from the balcony is incredible! I love how there are so many additional amenities as well. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed it so much better than a hotel/resort

by Rebecca on 07/18/2019
For family of 5 stayed here in unit 303 for our 2 week vacation and enjoyed it so much better than a hotel/resort like we've done in the past when visiting the Big Island! Our only complaint is that the loft area does get pretty hot with the not being an AC unit up there, but it wouldn't deter us from booking the unit again. We loved that we had so much space and a full kitchen (fully stocked with anything we needed for cooking/eating)! We also loved that all of the extra small amenities were already in the unit, so we didn't have to run out and purchase everything! Plenty of beach equipment supplied and a super peaceful and serene location with a great view! We definitely recommend this unit, especially for anyone that doesn't want to be in the heart of all the hustle and bustle of "downtown Kona", but still wants to be close enough that it's only about a 10 minute drive to it. We will for sure be looking in to staying here again the next time we vacation on the Big Island!

Perfect place

by Jason on 07/18/2019
Recommended! Perfect place. Quiet but not far from the market. Worth to go! The place is perfect! Quite and clean. Will book next time be there.

Incomparable View

by Paula on 07/18/2019
For location and incomparable view, you cannot beat Kona Magic Sands. The lanai alone is worth the nightly fee. We were able to watch amazing sunsets each evening and sea turtles and fish each morning in the reef below our lanai. The bath is roomy. The kitchen is comfortably equipped. Our stay was delightful.


by David on 07/18/2019
Amazing views of the ocean from the lanai! Very comfortable inside the property.

Amazing Place

by Andrea on 07/18/2019
The home was centrally located and in a beautiful neighborhood. It was beautifully decorated, well stocked and very comfortable. We would definitely stay there there again!

Awesome Kona Property

by Christopher on 07/18/2019
Our family of five had a great week here. Nice pool/hot tub and right across the street from an excellent snorkeling beach.

big Island vacation

by Dalene on 07/18/2019
Condo was very well equipped . We appreciated how well it was stocked with cleaning supplies, beach chairs, snorkels,etc. Really enjoyed our stay, will stay here again. The only down side is that it is a half hour drive to a big grocery store like Wallmart or Cosco. The Market Place at Queens centre is expensive with limited fresh fruit and veggies.

Fun for all

by Alex on 07/18/2019
Great condo and loved being next to the pool. Could have done with fewer geckos but it is Hawaii all. Close to markets and restaurants, excellent place.

BEST vacation home we have had the pleasure of visiting

by Donnie on 07/18/2019
The location was perfect for us. It seemed like we were close to everything we wanted/needed. Restaurants, grocery stores and beautiful beaches were all within a 10 minute drive. As far as the house is concerned, this spacious, immaculate and cozy getaway was truly the BEST vacation home we have had the pleasure of visiting. The ambiance was peaceful and just what the doctor ordered. We especially loved the detached Ohana which offered our children (and us!) privacy. The kitchen was fully equipped and ready for my wife’s culinary desires. We were pleasantly surprised by all of the water sports equipment in the huge garage. But my favorite aspect is the backyard...I loved the outdoor kitchen, putting green, pool and hot tub. Lastly, the view is unequaled! 10 out of 10!!


by Steven on 07/18/2019
This was a wonderful experience staying at this property! It was super clean and comfortable; well equipped with kitchenware and beach gear; stocked with plenty of essentials; and organized with important instructions. I also appreciated the call from the property manager a couple of days before our reservation to assure that we received all the email check-in instructions. Definitely a Five-Star vacation home!

Beautiful home

by Camillia on 07/18/2019
Residence was even better than advertised! Absolutely loved it!

Executive vacation rental

by Patricia on 07/18/2019
This home was perfect for our generational vacation 14 to 78 and we all fit ! Love the covered patio and pool makes it hard to want to go site see! Only thing was grandmas mobility but with the man floor bedroom we made it work, if you are unable to do stairs into the house this home would not work! But we would stay again and again!

Nothing's More Soothing Than the Sound of the Surf

by Adrienne on 07/18/2019
I spent 3 nights here with my husband and daughter and we were more than satisfied. The unit is much larger than we expected, especially the lanai where we spent most of our time. The lanai overlooks a small beach and the ocean and is the perfect place for meals, cocktails, an afternoon nap and card games. The bedrooms are also spacious. My husband and I slept in the back bedroom, and what a memorable experience it was to fall asleep every night to the soothing sound of the surf. The kitchen had everything we needed. The unit was clean and well-stocked with beach chairs and towels. This is a delightful spot.

Best Vacation Home Ever

by S M on 07/18/2019
The listing absolutely does not do the property justice. It is better than advertised! We have been renting homes for years for our large family. I am so glad we found this home. It is well stocked, great location and run by a great company. The benefit of your own personal concierge is a wonderful addition. Highly recommend and would definitely rent again. Loved it!

Family Vacation & Anniversary in Heaven

by Robert (Alex) on 07/18/2019
Unbelievable property on the Big Island. Mornings drinking coffee on the patio watching the morning the sun and ocean hitting the lava rocks and listening to the beauty that was Hawaii. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our family of 10 vacationing and also our celebrating our 30th anniversary. Plenty of room for everyone in this island paradise. The Master BR was incredible with the views overlooking the beach and ocean which we woke up to everyday thinking we were in heaven. Large great room for everyone to gather after a day of exploring the island. The house is very private in a gated community yet a short walk in to town and to explore the area. Would definitely recommend walking over to Umeke's for fresh Poke but if you are a large party call ahead as we did have to wait one night longer than expect. Kona Brewery is just right next door for a nice pint. David at Kona Coast Vacations was a great source for local things to do and provided us with great advice and helped us book several trips while on the island. We were so sad to leave as we really became attached to the house and its beautiful location. Definitely would come back and stay on our next trip to the islands.

condo visit

by Scott on 07/18/2019
above all else I loved how nicely the kitchen was appointed, literally had everything one could think of in the way of pots, pans, utensils, dishwasher with soap pods, just overall perfect

Kona Estates

by Leanna on 07/18/2019
Beautiful house, awesome location, wonderful beach right next door, perfect view!! We could not ask for more!!

The house is amazing and the location is great now that the vog isn't as prevalent

by Dave on 07/18/2019
They were very helpful with the property

Sunny stay

by Michael on 07/18/2019
Excellent a accommodation overall. Well equipped kitchen and good bbq. Lanai gives shade and a sunset view. There is no shade at all around the pool so get serious with the sunscreen. Nothing walkable, but shopping not too far. The Kona Sunshower coffee farm is 10 minute drive up the hill and has a very nice coffee “cupping” experience ($25 and reservations required) Watch for geckos on the ceiling and thank them for eating bugs. Property management company gets A+ for service.

Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, thank you for taking a moment to let us know about your stay.
Based on your feedback, the property owner has installed an umbrella that covers 2 chaise lounges – sun screen is still important, but now there’s a little shade when you want it!   On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help!  We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.

Best place and management EVER!

by Suzanne on 07/18/2019
Really impressed with the entire process from booking to checking out. Highly recommend this condo!

Clean and modern

by Eric K on 07/18/2019
Very clean. Easy to get to and conveniently located.

Heavens- Kailua Kona

by Jamie on 07/17/2019
Overall, a very nice property for our large family. The home is nicely zoned for everyone to have space without feeling like we were on top of one another. The pool was refreshing and it was great to have floats and goggles available. There were some maintenance issues that we had to have addressed but they were handled relatively quickly and did not detract from our experience. The home is very convenient to shopping, beaches, etc. the neighborhood is quiet and the view from the lanai was great! I would recommend this property for others looking for a rental.


by Kirsty on 07/17/2019
The place we stayed at was amazing, completely stocked with everything but food (obviously). Well maintained, clean, what was advertised was what we got. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on Big Is

Beds were very comfortable

by David on 07/17/2019
This condo was great!! We had an amazing time in the pool and it was a convenient time to the beach. Beds were very comfortable and they felt like home. Very large kitchen area and LOTs of utensils. Cool artist too! You did a wonderful choice making this condo


by Bruce on 07/15/2019
It was a amazing huge unit. Only my son and I but you could sleep several people and there’s a bonus loft with a large tv and Game equipment. Xbox Lots of new movies We stay 3 times a years and this unit is the best we have been in Expect a clean well stocked unit. There is a high end gas grill on the lanai. Sunsets are amazing the view is golf course and the ocean in the distance. Pool and workout room are nice. And you get a pass to a private beach club just down the street. There’s a food outlet and lots of seating and beach chairs and it’s calm waters here. Next spring we plan to rent a golf cart to run to the shopping area and beach club. I honestly can’t find a single thing neg with this place all the furnishings are high end the master bath is huge with walk in closet a private door to the lanai from the master

Fantastic Property

by Kevin on 07/15/2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this unit. The view is exactly as advertised. The property location is perfect and while the unit is literally directly next to the pool, other tenants follow the pool hours and it was not an issue. The only thing that could have been improved would be air conditioning as there is no air in the unit and it was hot during our visit. There are plenty of ceiling fans and regular fans that are provided to assist. We would happily come back

Love it

by Edward on 07/15/2019
Would defiantly stay in this condo again

Beautiful ocean view, perfect location for snorkeling

by Margaret on 07/15/2019
Of our three stays in Hawaii, we liked this place the best. The view of the ocean from the living room or lanai, the quick walk to the Kahalu’u Beach Park and spaciousness of the living/dining/kitchen area were the best parts of this conveniently located condo. There was some snorkeling gear to get us started (no fins but there were several adult masks and even a child-sized set), plenty of pots, pans, dishes, etc., as well as local guide and fish/bird ID books to entertain us and meet our needs. The A/C was also a big plus for us and kept our family of five comfortable. The one drawback to the condo was that the doors to the rooms, including the bathroom just off of the common area, are all slatted and you can hear everything from one end of the condo to the other, which made naps for little ones tough and awkward moments for those using the hall bathroom. All that said, we would definitely return for a stay here in the future!

Beautiful views!

by Amy on 07/15/2019
This rental has amazing views of the ocean and next door beach. It's such a treat to be able to sit on the deck and watch the waves. The rental has everything needed in order to have a great vacation, all you need to buy is groceries. Comfortable bed, plenty of towels, nice couch, easy to use kitchen, good pool, and best of all......air conditioning, because it was VERY hot when we were there. The only downside were some noise, making it harder to sleep if you're a light sleeper like me. We heard some sounds from the adjacent tenants/renters but that was mild. The ocean waves crashing against the wall just outside the building was incredibly loud. Again, only if you're a light sleeper would it bother you.

Terrific condo in a terrific location

by Duke on 07/15/2019
The condo was terrific and just as advertised. We had no problems whatsoever during our stay, and we hope to return!


by Pamela on 07/12/2019
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.

Sisters holiday

by Gabrielle on 07/12/2019
Five Australian sisters on holiday in Kona to celebrate a special birthday. This house was fantastic - plenty of space; beautiful ocean views; refreshing pool for relaxing after a day of exploring or shopping. It was not quite as close to the beach or shops as we had thought it would be (our mistake) but otherwise it was perfect. Definitely need a hire car for this location.


by Kimberly on 07/12/2019
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


by Michael on 07/12/2019
We loved the condo. Plenty of room and literally right on the beach. There are tide pools to explore right out front in the morning. Lots of turtle sightings. Also, BBQ grills to use to grill fresh fish. The kitchen had everything needed to cook dinners and you can eat out on the balcony overlooking the sunset. Da Poke Shack is on site too if you don't want to cook. Basically a perfect spot for families!

Clean and comfortable

by Alison on 07/12/2019
We stayed in Kona Isle C31. The condo was clean and comfortable. It was accurately represented on the website. The grounds were nice and we enjoyed using the grilling area. Before booking, Kona Coast Vacations customer service was very helpful.


by Tally on 07/11/2019
We loved this property and if we go back to Kona, we will book it again. Location and views are amazing. The property is clean, well equipped, and comfortable. It was the perfect home base for my family on our vacation.

Kona Vacation

by Zachary on 07/11/2019
Stunning vacation home! We truly enjoyed our stay! Kona Coast Vacations was incredibly easy to work with and very responsive! The pool was amazing. My family had a wonderful vacation! The house is fully stocked and very clean! I would stay here again!

The house was BEAUTIFUL and the PERFECT location!

by Leanna on 07/11/2019
Close to town but private enough to be peaceful! And the little beach was 50 feet from our back door! We also got to know the very nice neighborhood security guard (Judy) who showed us around, gave us tips on things to see nearby and always had a smile for us! Great option all around!


by Steven on 07/11/2019
This was a wonderful experience staying at this property! It was super clean and comfortable; well equipped with kitchenware and beach gear; stocked with plenty of essentials; and organized with important instructions. I also appreciated the call from the property manager a couple of days before our reservation to assure that we received all the email check-in instructions. Definitely a Five-Star vacation home!

Excellent choice

by Pearl on 07/11/2019
Completely satisfied with the accommodations for six adults. Clean, fully furnished with everything you will need. Quiet and walking distance to Kailua town. For the price I would come back again

Beautiful house

by David on 07/11/2019
From the initial booking until final checkout everything was professional and simple. The house itself is right on the ocean and within walking distance to a small beach and also to the local shops and restaurants. Bedrooms were air conditioned and had dehumidifiers which made it a nice comfortable area to sleep for us desert people who are not used to humidity. Would definitely recommend this house.

We really enjoyed our stay

by Jason on 07/11/2019
Stay was wonderful except the pool was too warm

Great daytime and night time views

by Dominick E on 07/11/2019
Clean property with everything you need. There are some critters that make their way onto the patio , but is a garden unit and it’s to be expected . Neat to see wildlife around the condo : turkeys, frogs, geckos

Perfect condo

by James on 07/11/2019
Location was wonderful, plenty of space for our family, great kitchen, clean throughout. Huge master bathroom. We would definitely return!

The property was beautiful

by Raul on 07/10/2019
Incredible stay at the big island. Everything was well taken care of and we had an amazing time. I highly recommend them. They communicated everything very well.

Wasilla holiday

by Cynthia on 07/10/2019
Great location to experience all that the big island has to offer


by Cynthia on 07/10/2019
Property is clean, quiet, and peaceful. Awesome views. You do need a car to get around. Looking to come back soon!

The salt water pool was a highlight

by Sharon on 07/10/2019
Enjoyed the condo very much. The landscaping and view from the lanai were wonderful.

It was a great stay

by Kelsi on 07/10/2019
We stayed at Casa de Emdeko which was managed by them. The location was a little further from town which we liked because of less noise/people. But it was just a short drive away. The concierge service was super nice and the property was beautiful. Couldn't ask for a better spot!

The unit was fantastic

by Liz on 07/10/2019
We stayed for a week with Kona Coast Vacations - the unit was fantastic, the property was clean and well maintained. They offered two pools both a chlorine and salt water pool. There is a beach area overlooking the ocean and lava cliffs. There are BBQ's and a gazebo area for outdoor dining. We spent afternoons lying by the salt water pool listening to the waves crashing. Staff from Kona Coast were easily accessible if needed and the unit that we rented had information about the island and activities to do. We relaxed and explored and had a wonderful vacation. We are looking forward to returning and renting from Kona Coast Vacations again.

Everything I wanted

by James on 07/10/2019
KCV and the condos they serve are the tops. Private, yet convenient to great restaurants, shops, and points-of-interest. Great view (from GMH at Keauhou Estates #9), clean, and the house needed NOTHING! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

This was my third time here and the best visit yet!

by William on 07/10/2019
Clear skies, unbelievably wide vistas; this house has a comfortable, familiar feel. I loved getting up early to watch the day break from my bedroom balcony and later watching the spectacular sunsets from the jacuzzi. The only downside is having to leave.

Beautiful views

by Susan on 07/10/2019
Kona Coast Vacations were perfect for us, we had eight people with our children and grandchild along. Directions were clear and convenient, the condo was gorgeous comfortable and had all the amenities we needed (including the piano which I used for practicing). We loved the downstairs patio and pool area with a table big enough for all of us. We all had our spaces to go to for sleep and comfort. The coastline was beautiful also and easily accessed by a walking path, beautiful views there. I also loved the private lanai off the Master bath in the a.m. with ocean views, birds, palms etc. It was a dream vacation for all of us, thank you!

We had a great stay at Mauna Loa Villages #22

by Kathy on 07/10/2019
We actually live on island, but our son came from the mainland, and decided to do a stay-cation on the Kona side. We could cook when we wanted, and do laundry before we sent him home. The condo was clean, and well stocked.

Great location

by Anne on 07/10/2019
My husband and I went to the Big Island of Hawaii to visit our daughter and son-in-love for their first year anniversary. After searching numerous properties, we decided on the Casa de Emdeko condominiums, specifically #333. We arrived very late in the evening, so it was a little difficult to locate the specific area as well as the elevators. However, we found everything. Getting into the location was just as Kona Coast Vacations had described. All was extremely easy and all was well. As I am a very clean individual, cleanliness is important. Things were not as I had expected at first, but after a GREAT nights' sleep, everything was wonderful in the morning, just a little touch-up work to do. The item that drew us most was not only the closeness to the ocean, but also the salt pool, which we swam in every morning and the private beach area; what a wonderful treat. We met some of the "locals", one named Dean. He made us feel very welcomed. We looked forward to speaking with him and loved his presence in the common area every day. We never turned on the TV, but did listen to the Hawaiian radio station regularly. It was so very soothing and authentic. I almost hate to recommend this location from the thought that the next time we want to rent, it may not be available. As a woman, and a little older, I need LIGHT to put my make-up on. You have this whether inside or out. I chose to utilize the mirrors outside on the lanai; what a treat! I wish I had this all year round to myself. Our favorite church is just down the street: Living Stones Church, which is a non-denominational Spirit-filled church.

Definitely plan on returning

by Bridget on 07/10/2019
The condo that we stayed in fit all four of us comfortably and was in a beautiful community. The gated community had two pools, tennis court and a workout facility. The workers at kona coast made life easy with holding our bags for a couple of hours so we could do our grocery shopping since we arrived on the island so early in the morning and were able to provide a couple of hour early check in. When we had an issue with the property they sent someone out within an hour and it turned out to be user error. They were able to assist with great ideas of places to visit while on our trip and overall the worst part was having to go home at the end. Thank you for everything and we definitely plan on returning.

We will return

by Roy on 07/10/2019
We have been staying at alii villas for 15 years or so. Unit 123 was in the top two units of the many fine units in Alii Villas. The grounds are always immaculate. We will return.

It was clean and comfortable

by John on 07/10/2019
Rented a condo (C22 Fairway Villas) directly with Kona Coast the first time. We have stayed at the Fairways many times before, but typically rented through VRBO or other aggregate sites. We have no issues with the rental process at all. Check in/out were easy. They provided a 24/7 number, but we never had to call them as we encountered absolutely nothing wrong the entire stay. The unit itself was on par with other units we stayed at before. It was clean and comfortable, and there were little extras like coolers, water filtration unit, beach toys, etc. to make the stay more convenient. The Fairway is our favorite property in the area. Not the poshest of them, but we rather not pay $$$$ to stay in a stuffy place. It is close to the shops on the golf course, with a good pool, hot-tub and exercise area. Grounds are well kept, and it has a low-keyed, relaxed, unpretentious upscale vibe. Weather is always nice year round, and it is easy to get everywhere on the Kona side from Waikoloa. We've been vacationing in this area for some 30 years, and hopefully will be back for many more.

Loved the grounds nice views

by Pamela on 07/10/2019
Comfortable accommodations with updated appliances and decor. Would love to stay again

The house was exceptional in every way

by Andrew J on 07/10/2019
We rented a house with Kona Coast Vacations. Everything about the experience was great. Communications before the trip were timely and helpful. David was amazingly helpful in getting us bookings for the activities we wanted to do. The house was exceptional in every way- well cleaned, well stocked, great location. If we are able to make it back to the Big Island, we will use Kona Coast Vacations again.

View was awesome

by Lovette on 07/10/2019
We had the best time at Lucky Bennett 42. The place was well equipped with everything we needed during the stay and the view was awesome. We certainly will go back again. Thanks Kona Coast Vacations for having this wonderful home available for us to pick from for our reunion.

You won't be disappointed

by Karen on 07/10/2019
Absolutely loved this apartment. Renovated stylishly, quality beach towels and crockery. Everything in the unit was high class and tasteful. Spacious and comfortable inside, private outside. Comfortable king sized bed with gorgeous lined was appreciated. Nice lounge to read book and put up feet in the sun on patio plus nice table and chairs to eat meals. Loved the ocean side pool with the waves breaking over the edge and layabouts under the shade of the coconut trees.Communal BBQ with tables and chairs and lighted flame torches created a wonderful atmosphere at night. We stayed a five different accommodations during our three week stay in Hawaii and this was our favourite place. Secure car parking and only five minutes form the heart of Kona. We could not fault this unit in any way and encourage others to stay here.


by Barbara on 07/10/2019
It is a very comfortable place to stay. Stocked with everything you need. The view is beautiful.

Our condo was amazing

by Wendy on 07/10/2019
Working with Kona Coast vacations was great! They communicated very thoroughly and often. Our condo was amazing with the most wonderful view. It was very comfortable and well maintained. Our only concern was at the pool. Rules were not respected, and it made it uncomfortable to be there unfortunately. We did notify the office onsite and called to express our concerns as well. Otherwise, we had the most wonderful experience!

Would definitely recommend and stay again!!!

by Florence on 07/10/2019
Process with Kona Coast Vacations was easy from beginning to end. This condo was absolutely beautiful with views of the ocean right out the lanai.

Very Convenient Location

by Ashwin on 07/08/2019
Very convenient location... on Alii Drive. Easy check-in process. Only drawback I could think of is that this space has no AC and it can get warm during summers. But they were super transparent about this during booking, so no complaints there.

Best BnB I've Experienced

by Tom on 07/08/2019
Best BnB I've experienced yet. David the concierge is absolutely excellent. Most responsive concierge I've had yet.

Beautiful Home

by Brandon on 07/08/2019
Beautiful home with many amenities. Very spacious and accommodated our family of 6. Nice island touches, great kitchen. Located in Waikoloa Village, so worked as a decent hub to venture out to different areas of Big Island each day. 2 of the bedrooms have A/C, the rest of the house can get warm in the afternoon on summer days like when we were there. The place was also spotless! We would definitely stay there again.


by Julieta on 07/07/2019
Wonderful all around

Good Location

by Graeme on 07/07/2019
Good location for walking to shops etc, good position for sunsets

Incomparable View

by Paula on 07/07/2019
For location and incomparable view, you cannot beat Kona Magic Sands. The lanai alone is worth the nightly fee. We were able to watch amazing sunsets each evening and sea turtles and fish each morning in the reef below our lanai. The bath is roomy. The kitchen is comfortably equipped. Our stay was delightful.

Great Company

by Aileen on 07/07/2019
Great company to work with. Very understanding people

This House Was Perfect!

by Christine on 07/07/2019
This house was perfect for our family vacation and had everything we could have wanted. Can't wait to come back again next year!

Beautiful Home Away From Home

by Janice on 07/07/2019
House was everything we needed and more! We enjoyed the fabulous view and watched the sunsets daily!

Beautiful and Delightful

by Lana on 07/07/2019
We loved our stay in this beautiful condo. It was perfect in every way. The views were amazing. The condo was lovely and so clean and comfortable. We appreciated every extra detail for our comfort and convenience. The little restaurant by the resort spa has the most delicious food, and we loved swimming in the beautiful pools there at sunset after our fun day on the island. The complex was close to everything we enjoy, including golf. It was fun to watch my husband and son play as they came around the beautiful 7th hole (me, watching from the lanai). It was truly a wonderful place to stay!

Perfect Place

by Jason on 07/07/2019
Recommended! Perfect place. Quiet but not far from the market. Worth to go!

Great Little Condo

by Laura on 07/07/2019
Great little condo, stylishly decorated had everything you might need for your stay. AC was a great bonus. Great location. Would definitely stay here again

Great property

by Katie on 07/07/2019
Our group of 4 adults enjoyed our stay here. The view of the ocean is beautiful and we enjoyed the Lanai every morning and evening. Good location with easy access to restaurants and activities. There is no air conditioning in the unit - it was a bit muggy the first night, but cooled down with fans and open windows. We would absolutely stay here again!

Great locale and priced well

by Richard on 07/07/2019
The property was clean and close to great restaurants such as Broke da mouth grindz(my favorite), Umekes and Kona Brewing company. The condo was perfect and the grounds were well kept. Spot on for the price.


by Angela on 07/07/2019
Couldn't have asked for a better location.

Lovely comfortable apartment

by Christoph on 07/07/2019
This was a lovely, comfortable apartment with plenty of room for us. We felt very much at home and the children loved the toys left for them to play with and we really appreciated the use of the beach toys. We did get the impression, however, that the complex was more geared towards senior living than families with children. As a result, we spent more time at the beautiful beaches than at the complex pool, although this is also very nice. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Kona Bali Kai 201

by Heather on 07/07/2019
Great property right on the ocean. Views don’t get any better than this. Saw a sea turtle right from our lanai feeding. Far enough away from the bustle of the touristy area of Kona yet not to far you couldn’t be there in a couple of minutes by car. Plenty of space for the 6 of us. A lot of great amenities such as chairs, beach umbrellas, snorkeling gear to help enjoy your vacation. Pretty cool to watch the local surfers as the condo is right next to a small local park. The pool and hot tub area are very nice to use especially in the evening, barely anyone else using it. The only negatives were the lack of air conditioning and lack of breezes off the ocean while we were there that left us a bit hot and sticky. But there are ceiling fans and additional fans in every room. The condo itself is pretty close to the road so guests in the queen and twin bedrooms will get road noise. The bathrooms could use a paint job but I suppose that’s life living so close to the sea. Overall a great place with great amenities for the price. Loved my time on the big island!

Amazing time

by Eric on 07/07/2019
Coming in from Colorado to your home was so enjoyable! We had an amazing time and can’t wait to make another trip back!


by Jasia on 07/07/2019
Exceeded our expectations. Can't wait to come back!

Amazing property

by Alfredo on 07/07/2019
The property was perfect. Beautifully decorated and the layout of the home was great. My family enjoyed the house as much as the island - thank you for a fantastic trip. I would definitely stay at this house again and recommend.

Our view was amazing!

by Jacob on 07/07/2019
This was an incredible location. The store was within walking distance, views were incredible, and the condo was great. Our only qualm was we would have like beach chairs and a working umbrella. That’s it, other than that it was perfect! Thanks for sharing it with us 🙂


by Tracey on 07/07/2019
This house was even More beautiful in person! We loved the property! Private, quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the outdoor living space and the pool each day we were there. Close to lots of shopping and dining. Perfect place for a family to enjoy a vacation! Thank you for making this a wonderful experience!

Cozy Comfort on the BEACH!

by Michael on 07/07/2019
Magic Sands 203 is a delight to partake of the cleanliness and the proximity to the ocean and the Magic Sands Beach. We definitely enjoyed the air conditioning. The Trade Winds were not as evident as they usually are and the comfortable breezes off the ocean were not available to keep us cool. We congratulate the owner on the amount of supplies that are provided to renters. Most appreciative of her thoughtfulness. My wife lit up like a Christmas tree to be so wonderfully close to the ocean. She finds it so very comforting to be next to it. We most definitely enjoyed our stay at 203!

Clean, comfortable, spacious and convenient property

by Brett on 07/07/2019
The online listing was accurate. Kona Coast Vacations was very responsive to our needs. We didn't have enough beach towels, and they delivered them right away. The lanai furniture had some issues, and they repaired them promptly. The place was well-appointed, clean, spacious, and conveniently located. We'd definitely stay there again. The only real feedback we have is that the ice maker doesn't make enough ice, and not quickly enough. If you go through a lot of ice, you might consider buying some. Thank you for helping make our vacation so special and enjoyable.


by James on 07/07/2019
The townhome is immaculate and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Great pool nearby - but not too close. The beach club is a perfect spot for gentle snorkeling and never crowded.

Perfect for large groups

by Mike on 07/07/2019
We had a wonderful stay. Large home with a great view to the coast. Our group of 5 couples had plenty of space. The property has everything you need for a stress free stay. About 1.4km walk to the beach which was an easy 20 minute walk home after a few drinks.

Penthouse apartment was fantastic

by Damon on 07/06/2019
Our penthouse apartment was fantastic for a family stay. The location is great particlularly for families with young snorkellers which the beach across the road is ideal for. The apartment was immaculate and verrry comfortable. Highly recommeded.

Beautiful views

by Jeff on 07/06/2019
Beautiful views, great location, good neighbors, nice amenities. We recommend morning walks to Honl Beach

Clean, relaxed, comfortable, roomy, affordable.

by Terri on 07/06/2019
Clean, relaxed, comfortable, roomy, affordable. Thank you for a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. We loved everything about it. We will definitely come back!

My husband and I loved this place

by Alexis on 07/05/2019
My husband and I loved this place. The unit was beautiful! A lot bigger in person then in the pictures. The views of the ocean, the sounds of the birds and the waves crashing, flora and fauna everywhere, there was no better way to relax. Downtown Kona was a short drive, or if you wanted to walk, it was just a couple miles. Their private beach and pools were amazing amenities, as well. There was also a convenient store right outside the complex, where we bought some liquor haha. There was a washer and dryer in the unit which was nice and an iron, so our clothes weren't wrinkly from packing. It literally felt like home away from home for us! If we come back to the Island of Hawai'i, we will definitely be staying here again!

Great View!

by Chole on 07/05/2019
Great place to stay! Has a great view!

Very nice location

by Jamie on 07/05/2019
Very nice location. Small beach very close , but also very busy , with huge waves.

Look forward to staying again

by Martha on 07/05/2019
Casa d Embeko # 225 is a one bedroom with everything we needed for a lovely five night stay. The condo kitchen is completely equipped, the complex is very quiet, the two swimming pools are wonderful. The balcony was a lovely place to have dinner in the evening and to sit out in the morning with coffee . Ample parking and the condo is a very short drive to restaurants and activities. We are looking forward to staying there in the future .


by Robert on 07/05/2019
The condo was great. All was ready to be occupied upon arrival. Location was great and all within walking distance. All essentials were there and a pleasant to use. I highly recommend this place for future accommodations. It was a pleasure to walk inside without shoes for the was clean.

A great stay

by Rina on 07/05/2019
キッチン設備がかなり充実していて、プールもありのんびり滞在出来ました。Translation: "The kitchen facilities are quite good and the swimming pool is also nice and I could stay.”


by Kimberley on 07/05/2019
We stayed at The Islands K1 at Mauna Lani on the big island. This unit was exquisite! It was exactly how it looked in the pictures. The unit was stocked with everything you needed to enjoy the condo as well as the island. They went above and beyond our expectations. It was like staying in 5 star luxury hotel but with the convenience of a kitchen. The unit was also very clean when we arrived. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with us.


by Maybelle on 07/05/2019
We had an amazing stay. The condo is beautifully remodeled and expertly designed to take full advantage of the ocean views, sounds and environment. We will definitely be returning.

Our stay at IO Way was fantastic

by Wendy on 07/03/2019
Our stay at IO Way was fantastic. Beautifully appointed kitchen, a view that was amazing and a pool we spent many a day by. Any maintenance issues were handled promptly and professionally. Our family of 6 adults and 2 10 month old twins was very comfortable and would definitely recommend this to any one looking for a great family spot. Would have enjoyed some air conditioning but the large screened walls that led to the pool were awesome for cooling. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Only thing I could add is you need another guest book. The one at the house is full!! And we did use it for prior guest recommendations.

Our condo was lovely

We had a wonderful stay with Kona Coast. Our condo was lovely and the location was dreamy. Getting to have coffee on the property's private beach every morning was the best way to start off our vacation days. Loads of amenities in the condo and they reached out plenty to ensure we had a great and comfortable stay.

Little Bit of Paradise

by James on 07/03/2019
We stayed in Waikoloa Village and the house we stayed in was beautiful and wonderfully stocked. We had an amazing view and beautiful yard to enjoy, as we had an 8 year old. We had ac units in the bedrooms; however, the living area never really cooled down comfortably. We did use the 2 fans that we found in the closet and put them in the living room in the evenings, as well as opened the doors, but it was still considerably warm. We did realize that most homes have an open air concept and we were comfortable while sleeping with the ac units. The only thing I really took issue with was the fact that we had 5 people stay in the home for 7 days and in the closing up of the home procedures if you used more than 1 set of towels per guest you had to wash linens. If you are bathing every night, which you should be, then you are going to be using more than 1 towel and wash cloth per guest. As I have already paid a cleaning fee, I did not feel that I should have had to wash towels as well. Otherwise we had a wonderful stay at a beautiful home in a great location.

Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important feedback. We do ask our guests to maintain the property during their visit, which includes in part removing the rubbish & keeping up with the towels. Guests are not expected to wash all linens but dirty towels should only be 1 set per guest.    On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help!

We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.

We had an amazing stay at Kona Coast Vacations! Great place! Wonderful location!

Waikoloa Villa Vacation

by Jennifer on 07/03/2019
Our experience at this condo was fantastic. The location was beautiful in the heart of resort village. Place had enough beach/ swimming supplies, towels, kitchen utensils & appliances. Place was clean, which is a big deal for me! The pool was so nice with bbq area. We had a great great time! Loved it!

We loved the accommodations

by Emily on 07/03/2019
We loved the accommodations and the location (my sister's family took the condo next door, so our large family group had the whole second level). Our ice maker did not work, but Kona brought ice to our location and we shared with the neighbors; using their ice maker and sharing our ice. We also shared BBQ grills because the grill in my sister's unit wasn't working. Kona did come out and fix that within 24 hours or so. Our unit had some A/C issues which were also taken care of. The overall facility was in great repair with the exception of some of the horizontal blinds that I assume got messed up by other renters. Overall very happy with the location; however part of that was because our families had access to each others amenities when there were issues.

Our vacation was wonderful

by Lloyd on 07/03/2019
Our vacation was wonderful. Excellent snorkeling, good beaches, and Volcano NP. The house was beautiful, but it was very hot and uncomfortable, even with the fans.


by Richard on 07/02/2019
The view from our lanai was spectacular. The sound of the waves crashing on the beach lulled us to sleep every night. It was great waking up in the morning with some great Kona Coast coffee. The condominium was very clean and was the perfect home base for our vacation. We hope to be staying here again in the future.

Great Stay

by Cathy on 07/01/2019
Well equipped Great beach items. Just as described.

Absolutely outstanding experience

by Tearlach on 07/01/2019
Absolutely outstanding experience. The area is right in the center of Kona with quick access to restaurants, beaches, and local nightlife. The home itself has a beautiful pool that overlooks the beach, and a balcony where we ate many breakfasts and lunches. The views are totally breathtaking. The beds were stylish and comfortable and the showers were very modern. We were extremely impressed with the customer service that was provided by the team as they called no less than 3 times to check up on us. I would highly recommend this home to anybody looking to go to the Big Island and soak up some sun. A truly fabulous vacation

Great Spot

by Matthew on 07/01/2019
I was very pleased with my stay at 311. The unit is quite big with a beautiful lanai overlooking a gold course and the ocean. It has everything you need for your vacation. I will certainly look to see if it's available next time I'm on the big island.

Nana's 80th Birthday!!!

by Kelly on 07/01/2019
We traveled to Kona to celebrate my mother in loves 80th bday. We had 7 of us in our party. The house was beautiful & clean & had everything you could ever need in the house. My sister & her family live in Kona so it made it nice to have the house so close to hers as well. We had plenty of space for everyone & it was perfect access to town/beaches & airport. I was lucky enough to meet the owners to let them know how much we loved their property. We would LOVE to be able to reserve this property again sometime. Mahalo until next time!!!


by Christine on 07/01/2019
We loved our stay at the Kona Reef. The views from the lanai were stunning. We started every morning relaxing on the lanai watching the turtles, the surfers and all the water activities. The unit needs a little updating, but I knew that going in, as I realize it was just recently purchased by new owners. The unit was clean and had everything we required. We truly enjoyed our stay!!!

very relaxing

by Kerry on 07/01/2019
It was once again a very relaxing great vacation on the Big Island We very much enjoy the Waikoloa Village area--past 11 years and look forward to coming back next year.

Relaxing week

by Cory on 07/01/2019
The property was walking distance from many restaurants and walking distance from the farmers market. Of course we enjoyed so much the view of the ocean everyday from the balcony. Property is in a very quiet complex and the complex is very clean.

Great experience!

by Yekaterina on 07/01/2019
Lovely condo, clean, in such a good location. Everything was close to town and all the restaurants were 5 minutes away! The only complaint really is the mattress in the guest room. We went with another couple and we traded for the master ocean front master bedroom halfway through the trip to be fair and we both agreed that the mattress in the guest room was terrible. We would wake up in pain. Other than that, I'd stay here again!

ocean view

by John on 07/01/2019
the unit is well appointed new kitchen, carpeting in living room and bedroom. while it's not air conditioned the 3 vertical and 2 ceiling fans kept it cool even though the temperature often dose to 87 or so. keeping the door to the lanai and the curtain closed during the heat of the day opening the lanai slider after the sun passed it was cool at nite. We enjoyed our stay there mostly we sat on the lanai the living room furniture looked nice but we found it uncomfortable. that's the only negative. we would stay there again

Great location!

by William on 07/01/2019
This place is great. Very clean. Only thing I would recommend is some extra blankets. Other than that this place is on point.

Easy in, easy out, easy everything

by Leah on 07/01/2019
Our condo was your standard 1B/1B, with balcony and living space facing the surfers and bedroom in back adjacent to the walkway. The cork flooring somehow is just warmer and more comfortable on the feet than your usual linoleum or concrete floor. The kitchen had all the basic amenities (place settings), but no spices or sauces (bring your own if you plan to bbq; I don’t recall if there were pots/pans). Parking was a breeze, we happened to be on the second level, so there were maybe 4 steps total between parking lot and the condo. The pool was warm and clean,. The lava rock “beach” provided a place to walk out (carefully) to stick your feet in the water. There’s a proper beach we’re many of the surfers launch from immediately to the south side of the condo. The location is close to everything by car and a longish walk to the first set of restaurants and stores. Kona Concierge, the company that manages the property, was professional and everything was as expected. They sent emails regularly to offer excursions, but did not oversell. We took advantage of the 2+ hour horseback ride out to Umauma Falls to swim and LOVED it. We highly recommend it! It’s about a 2+ hour drive out, but on the super easy drive, you see so many different microclimates, the drive reallly shows off the variety Bih Island has to offer.

Great location close to town

by Robert on 07/01/2019
This location was very quiet and right on the beach with beautiful sunsets Just what we were looking for

Hawaii 2019

by Duane on 07/01/2019
The property was very clean and found to be in good working order. There was an issue with ice maker in the freezer not making ice. The facilities on the property were nice with a pool and tennis courts. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained by the property staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with VRBO and the property here. We will definitely be back again in the future.

Lovely stay

by Nancy on 07/01/2019
This property was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 2 teenagers. Everyone had their own bath and bedroom, there was ample room for socializing, and the kitchen had everything we could imagine. It was quite hot and humid this week so we missed having air conditioning in the main part of the house but the bedrooms were comfortable. Great vacation in paradise.

Such a Gem!

by Christina on 06/30/2019
The Pictures don't do this Gem justice! My husband and I stayed here with friends to celebrate our honeymoon and we had a great time! The view from the pool is amazing. We really enjoyed our stay!

Great condo

by Leann on 06/30/2019
My family is from Hawai’i so I have rented condos frequently. The company that manages the condo was fantastic and called to make sure everything was good. The condo itself was perfect for us and clean and well cared for. The downfall was the association at the condo was not very family/children friendly. We had multiple groups renting ranging in ages and all had at some point been talked to about talking on lanai NOT during quiet hours. It felt unwelcoming. Otherwise we were very happy with our stay and condo

The house was amazing!

by Kevin on 06/29/2019
The house was amazing! There was ample space for both families! We had a wonderful time!

Quiet ocean front

by Richard on 06/29/2019
A well run condo complex. Nice mix of locals and visitors.

Great property. Pictures are very accurate. Would definitely stay again

by Chris on 06/29/2019
Amazing sunsets and house. We were a little concerned that it did not have air conditioning but it cooled off nicely at night. Would definitely recommend and rent again.

Absolutely loved staying at this villa

by Monica on 06/28/2019
Absolutely loved staying at this villa, it was spacious and clean. My boys loved their upstairs loft. Kitchen was fully equipped, having a washer & dryer at hNds reach was an extra perk and everyone had their own bathroom. Would definitely return in the future.

Great condo and location in Kona

by Ray on 06/28/2019
Great condo and location in Kona. Right on the water, nice kitchen and really well equipped for cooking. Enjoyed the pool and access to local beaches. One of our best trips to Hawaii!


by Amanda on 06/28/2019
The condo was in a super convenient location. We enjoyed being close to the gym and pool. It was clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of towels, beach towels, beach gear, etc. The supplied dish and clothes detergent, paper towels, etc. was perfect for a 1 week stay.


by Giang on 06/28/2019
C6 Kona Isle is exactly like described in the listing. We really enjoyed our stay because of the beautiful updated and well organized kitchen. It is very well stocked with everything we need to prepare meals. Kona Isle condominium's location is very convenient: not too much traffic, close to town, close to main highways, close to really nice snorkeling beach... The whole complex is not large but has beautiful landscape with many tropical flowers shrubs all around. The unit is on the ground floor and is just a quick walk from parking lot and hence another convenient feature for us. Kona Coast manages this property and has very good customer service. I would definitely consider staying here again. Thank yo

Great and well equipped

by Rebecca on 06/28/2019
Great, well equipped house for families.... up the hill so if you need to get around get a rental car. Lots of space & amenities. Thx


by Shawn on 06/28/2019
The view is OUTSTANDING from the balcony, the pool, or even inside from the bay windows. The covered parking kept the cars at an even temperature, which was awesome. We appreciated the towels and the cooler. Note: airflow at the secondary room was limited and needed the two fans to mitigate the temperatures/humidity.


by Julieann on 06/28/2019
We would love to stay here next time. Magic Sands Beach ended up being our favorite beach of all, and it is conveniently located just across the street from this condo. The bbq/pool area was maintained very well and has a nice sunset view. This unit had plenty of towels, a couple of small coolers, AC, 2 fans out on the patio, a fan in each bedroom (plus and extra portable fan), gas stove, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, all utensils, plates, cups, mugs, and a small washer/dryer set. Sliding glass doors can be tough to open, but it wasn't an issue for us. There is an elevator! The elevator came in very handy after long days of swimming and hiking. I highly recommend staying here.

Location, view and facilities are perfect!

by Madeleine on 06/28/2019
Location, view and facilities are perfect! Everything was so clean and easy to access. The extra touches in the kitchen were great, and these facilities were perfect for us to be able to cook and store food! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay! Kona Coast is in a perfect location for us, facilities we're great and so was the view!


by Dominique on 06/28/2019
Awesome stay and accommodations. Concierge service and amenities spot on. View to die! David our concierge was awesome and responsive. Our condo was just as explained and view was to die. Thank you for everything. We will be back!

The home is absolutely lovey!

by Marissa & Julie on 06/28/2019
The home is absolutely lovey! The views are amazing and the space is very relaxing. All of the rooms are spaced out enough to give everyone some space and privacy. The location is great, close to a grocery store and walking distance to a couple small beaches. We appreciated the cooler provided to take to the beach as well. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property!

Great place to stay!

by Roseanne on 06/28/2019
Great place to stay! Perfect for families! Clean and convenient! We enjoyed our stay!

Amazing place to stay!

by Erika on 06/28/2019
Amazing place to stay! Location was close to downtown Kona. I would highly recommend this place to anyone! Everything you need, is available to you. We would definitely come back and stay at the same location again. Thank you!

Nice place, great location.

by Morgan on 06/28/2019
Nice place, great location, easily accommodated 4 adults and one child, very well stocked kitchen and with lots of linens, loved the pool. Great value for money. And a shout out to Kona Concierge for their great communications, and offer to store luggage after check out on the last day. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful house!

by Michelle on 06/28/2019
Beautiful house! Works perfectly for 2 families. The pool and yard were amazing— the view can't be beat. Would definitely book again.

We stayed at the Hale Akoa property and was absolutely perfect for our family of 10 vacation.

by Lona on 06/28/2019
The property was clean and well maintained. The pictures posted of the property do not do it justice! The kitchen was well equipped with all of the small appliances needed and most amenities needed to begin our trip. The Lani was perfect for our meals together and the view was beautiful! For our beach outings, there were beach chairs, umbrellas and sand toys for the kids in the garage. The location was centrally located for restaurants and grocery shopping. We even needed to make a trip to an Urgent Treatment center for our grandson which was less than 5 minutes from the home. David, the concierge was absolutely wonderful and very helpful with arranging a couple of our excursions and our Luau. He also helped with advice and answered any of our questions. The property management, Kona Coast Vacations, were helpful and easy to work with as well. We would absolutely stay at this location again and highly recommend this property to anyone who is planning a vacation to Hawaii.

Outstanding service!!!

by Janice on 06/28/2019
The condo was amazing. The location was perfect and the view of the ocean was simply amazing. I was in awe. The condo was beautiful with upgraded amenities. They provided just about everything. It was well equipped with Apple electronics and sound system through out the condo. It was very neat and clean. The management team checked on us to make sure everything was up to par and to see if we needed anything. I was very impressed with the service that was provided. I would love to use Kona Coast Vacations for futures visits. The communication was excellent and all questions were answered in a timely manner.

Our condo was great!

by Dana on 06/28/2019
Our condo was great! It had all the nice upgrades. It fit our family perfectly and we loved the lanai. We sat out in the lanai daily and watched the views! We definitely recommend this unit.

Paradise view

by Diane on 06/28/2019
We loved spreading out in our fantastic “home” and spent more time dawdling and interacting than we planned on. There is everything you need and more for a relaxed vacation. Hawai’i will be forever shaped by our experience of living so graciously.


by Kendel on 06/28/2019
We were pleasantly surprised with this house, the view and neighborhood

We could not have been more pleased with this property

by Judy on 06/28/2019
We come to the big island....OFTEN. Our daughter and two grand children live in Waimea! The location, layout, and amenities were all that we need to have a fabulous weeks stay!!

Ground Floor - stunning view!

by Ruthie on 06/28/2019
We arrived early from Hilo and were allowed an early check-in. Parking spot right out front numbered just for our condo. Accommodations were great - 2 bedrooms, 2 baths. This is an older condo that could use some updating. Carpeting throughout instead of tile. Vertical blinds that are showing wear and are difficult to operate. One huge improvement would be to add air conditioning. But with the front door open and the back patio doors open and lots of ceiling fans, there is some movement of air, but it is very humid this time of year. Washer and dryer worked well. Beds were very comfortable. We loved the leather sectional in the living room. Great smart tvs in both bedrooms and living room. Many spices, oils and vinegars were supplied in the kitchen. Nice Tommy Bahama beach chairs, but the beach umbrellas were cheap and did not withstand the wind at the beach. Should invest in a Tommy Bahama one. Really very nice condo for the low price. We would stay here again. Good location and very quiet! Only waking up to the sounds of the birds at 5:30. Sunset was beautiful to watch around 6:50 p.m.


by Roberta on 06/28/2019
We appreciate that you call us within 24 hours of check in to see if everything is okay. that is highly unusual as most vacation rental people want to limit communication with their guests for fear there will be a problem they have to fix. We also had an issue one day accessing the lock box and one of your employees was in the complex and immediately took care of the situation. Her name was Irma. we've found that the units we've rented in the past have always been very clean very well-stocked and just super nice. Mahalo

Wonderful location and amenities

by Suzy on 06/27/2019
This is a fantastic property location, and amazing views right out the back sliding glass doors, and is very spacious, well appointed, and comfortable inside. We especially loved having all the beach gear for us and our kids. Would highly recommend this for a relaxing and fun place as a base for a big island visit!

Fantastic house!

by Wendy on 06/27/2019
The property was just as described. Kitchen was beautifully appointed with any thing and every thing you could want. We had a few maintenance issues that were addressed very promptly. No responsibility of the owners but most likely never reported by previous renters. 6 adults and 2 10 month old twins were very comfortable and spent many a morning and evening watching the sun from the awesome pool deck. Water temp in the pool was fantastic! It was very hot and humid and we would have loved AC but we managed with the full wall retractable screens and supplied fans. We would definitely recommend this amazing property.

Beautifully appointed condo. Close to the beach and shops

by Stephanie on 06/27/2019
Great experience. I would definitely stay here again.

Loved Kona Condo

by Laura on 06/26/2019
Clean, spacious, well appointed, comfortable beds, great location and well managed. Very relaxing stay and across the street from a public park with good snorkeling. Was very hot while we were there and started to use AC but not very effective once condo was already hot. Instead we opened up all the screened windows including ones up high. It cooled down nicely, and cool enough to sleep at night with covers. With open windows could hear wonderful birdsong in AM. Highly recommend and would go back.. Thank you.


by Gery And Katie on 06/26/2019
Wonderful vacation in a great location. This condo had everything we needed for a wonderful & totally relaxing vacation. It’s a great location & we would absolutely stay here again!

Vacation Condo

by Robert on 06/26/2019
It was a joy to use the condo where it was clean, easy to access to town's stores, eateries, and various locations. It great not to use shoes within the condo. Great interior and exterior. Looking forward to our next vacation if possible at this Condo. Thanks

Amazing property, would come back

by Aldrin on 06/26/2019
Everything about the place was great. Location - The place is very close to Kahaluu Beach, close to the Keahou Shopping Center (Supermarket, Thai restaurant, Movies, Pizza), easy access to Highway 11, great way to get across the Big Island (to the volcanoes and back to the airport to skip traffic through downtown Kona). Many restaurants along Highway 11. Amenities - AC was cold, had everything we needed for the trip. The only thing that ran out was paper towels, detergent, and trashcan liners but got all of those from Wal-Mart for a $1 each. Not sure if owner could have been contacted for these to be replinished. Great Views - You are right on the coast of the island. I was looking forward to seeing dolphins or whales but unfortunately, we did not see any. Great sunsets. You can just hang out in the lanai and watch the sun go down. The resort - Great pool, had 1 ft depth for the kids which they enjoyed. Property was impeccably maintained by the grounds crew. Grills were available right next to the volleyball courts. I loved the fact that it was gated and you needed a gate code to get in.

Great Condo

by Dustin on 06/25/2019
It's a great condo. We could find everything we needed. The place is clean and comfortable. We loved the ocean front view and had a great time there. Thank you.

Wonderful Time!

by Matthew on 06/25/2019
I had a wonderful time at my Kona Coast place. The location was wonderful and situated just south of the town closer to the lovely beaches with snorkeling and great boogie boarding in the evenings before sunset.


by Robert on 06/25/2019
The house is VERY NICE..... the view from the lanai is epic..... like an IMAX screen. The kitchen is well stocked with all you will need to cook for your family or friends (stop at COSTCO just down the hill and get your supplies) there is high quality cookware, rice cooker, and a great refrigerator. The counter space is massive with the center island (don't let it clutter up during your stay : D The bedrooms are great. The master suite is for the master of the house. If you have three couples - then the bargaining must begin to find out who gets the smallest and largest bedrooms. Good Luck with the negotiations. There is a road behind the property and so FYI..... its noisy in the morning so get ready to get up with the rush hour(shrug). The pool is awesome but a little chilly..... and the birds love it as a bird bath- ha! The hot tub is hot and has great jets. Overall we were very satisfied. Mahalo !


by Alan on 06/25/2019
Gabby was great. The room was nice, but lack of a/c made it like a sauna. Expected the breeze to keep us cool, but no luck. A small window unit would Make a world of difference when there is no breeze.

Gorgeous condo

by Joann on 06/24/2019
We enjoyed our week long stay in your gorgeous condo. We appreciate your home. Thank you for sharing!

Best Home!

by Tom on 06/23/2019
Both the home and management exceed expectations in every way. Highly attentive, home stocked to the nines, amazing home in every way, incredible view, fantastic location. You will not be disappointed by this property.

Wonderful Time

by Heather on 06/23/2019
Wonderful place to stay. I spent 6 days here with my husband, parents, and brother and everything was great. Perfect location for us and close to restaurants and shops without being right in town, very nicely furnished, plenty of kitchen items - including Tupperware, which was essential - and everything was very clean. Highly recommend if you want to stay on the Kona side!

Thanks for the wonderful accommodations!

by David on 06/23/2019
Our stay at the Fairway Villas was great! The room was bright and clean and the decor was perfect for a Hawiian vacation. It was especially nice being so close to restaurants, shops and the A bay beach. Thanks for a great stay!

Great Place

by Eric on 06/23/2019
Awesome view of the ocean from the lanai. VERY clean, but still warm and inviting. Grounds and pools are also well maintained. My wife and I loved it and we will definitely return.

Great Place

by Antoinne on 06/23/2019
Great place to stay on the island

Nice Place

by Yen on 06/23/2019
The place was nice. Extra beach amenities was great for the beach. The only thing was it was a bit hot for us because there was no air conditioning . The living room and master bedroom had a nice breeze but the loft and the other bedroom was a bit too hot for us. But everything else was great

We Had a Great Time!

by Monika on 06/23/2019
This place is awesome, we had a great time! It was well equipped and stocked. (Tabs for dishwasher & washing machine as well as soap, shampoo or salt & pepper...) The highlight for our kids was the huge warm pool. We parents enjoyed the hot tub as well. Especially the staff from the concierge-service were amazing: they answered our „code-questions“ almost immediately, even though it was well past office hours!!! Mahalo!

Great Place!

by Raul on 06/23/2019
We're extremely in love with this place. We could not have asked for more during our stay at the big island. This place has its own little beach (no ocean access) a pool and a salt water pool. We used grills and the amenities during our stay. It is a fully equipped unit and very quiet and peaceful. We will be staying here next time!


by Jessica on 06/23/2019
Wow!!! The unit was just perfect for myself and two young boys! Queen bed plus another pullout bed made this space great! What really makes this unit special is its ground floor location and spectacular view of the ocean right in the backyard! The saltwater pool, Kona Isle pool, and BBQ area gave us plenty of things to do in the evenings. It was well stocked with essentials such as toilet paper, trash bags, dish soap, paper towels, soap, and shampoo....enough to get you started, for sure! Plenty of cookware, as well! It even has beach chairs, boogie boards, and cooler/ice blocks for day trips! The location was ideal; we were minutes away from everywhere we wanted to be the week we stayed. No regrets here! Would love to be back there now!!

Loved it!

by Walkiria on 06/23/2019
We loved our stay at Country Club Villas #302. We would definitely stay there again. The beds were comfortable, the rooms spacious, the sunsets from the patio were unbelievably breathtaking. We had everything we needed and more!

Wonderfully clean and comfortable

by Anita on 06/22/2019
We especially appreciated the extra beach towels, beach chairs and cooler. Communication was excellent with lots of info ahead of time about options and things to see and do in the area. We even got a phone call on the first evening to check and see if we needed anything or had any questions. Great stay. Walking distance to stores and restaurants and movie theater was a real plus.

We enjoyed our stay at Kona Coast's place

by Rynda on 06/22/2019
“We enjoyed our stay at Kona Coast's place. Location-wise, it was great. It was a short drive to the Kona town where there are restaurants and touristy shopping. It was about a 15 minute drive from the airport and other attractions like the beaches, national park and octopus farm. We frequented the Safeway and Walmart throughout our stay for our groceries. The unit was relatively clean except for the small pest problem in the master bathroom and bedroom. The kitchen came fully stocked for home-cooked meals. The unit itself was clean and had everything we needed during our stay. They even provided beach chairs and a small cooler for us to use during our beach outings which was nice to have since we couldn't fly with our own. The view from the lanai was probably the best part. It was so amazing waking up and falling asleep to the waves crashing and eating breakfast and dinner with sunrises and sunsets. The only issue for us was that with our one year old, trying to get him to nap and sleep for the night was difficult with the open windows and outside noise. There was no way to block out all the noise or sun. So just a note for parents traveling with small babies

Great, Very Cleaned, Well Maintained

by Charles on 06/22/2019
The apartment was great, very clean, well maintained and spacious. It was in a great location overlooking the beach and ocean. It has underground parking and is very secure. The management company is very efficient with seven day service and they even came out to show us how to use the TV/cable. We would thoroughly recommend this property for a stay in Kona


by Gabe on 06/21/2019
We stayed in 203 at Magic Sands. This place was phenomenal. Right on the water, we could hear the surf all night long. Woke up to yellow tang swimming right before our eyes and dolphins playing with tourists right outside our lanai. The bed was comfy, shower pressure good, all amenities were as promised. Premium location even with a reserved parking space. We were very pleased with this accommodation and will stay here again when we return!

Thoughtful amenities · Spacious rooms

by John on 06/21/2019
Our stay at Kona Alii couldn't have been nicer. Beautiful, spacious condo with every amenity you could ask for. The views, the layout, the location were incredible. We actually wanted to move in - it's that great!

Family vacation in Kailua Kona

by Renee on 06/20/2019
Hale Kipa was a fantastic property. We planned our family vacation, and the home had plenty of room for everyone. The home was beautiful, and so close to the waves. The sound of the waves at night was wonderful. The sunsets were amazing from the back porch, and our kids enjoyed spending hours in the pool every day. The pool was not harsh with chlorine, and was refreshing to dip in. We would definitely consider staying at the home again in any future visits to the area. Thank you for sharing your home with our family!

We loved the condo

by Alicia on 06/19/2019
We loved the condo and were especially delighted to find a coffee shop on the premises. We were also pleasantly surprised to find beach gear available for our use. Sitting on the lanai and watching the ocean was spectacular. The condo does get warm, but there are fans to help move the air. Overall, an amazing visit!

Very cute place in great location!

by Raquel on 06/19/2019
Very cute place in great location! Easy communication and very helpful service.


by Richard on 06/19/2019
I came here with my husband, 3 adult children and son in law. We booked the property through Kona Coast Vacations. This place is so well stocked it feels like a beautiful lived in home. Unlike so many rentals where things are tossed out as guests leave, this is stocked like your own home. There are spices, some baking ingredients, liquor ( we left behind grand Marnier and tequila to help fill the cabinet). They have really thought of everything. There is a bbq, tons of pool floats, balls, snorkel, beach bag, towels, laundry and cleaning solutions, etc. The location is amazing. It is on the water with views of the coastline as well as the ocean. The waves are crashing right in front of you. The sunsets were so wonderful we didn’t leave one night. The pool and jacuzzi are much better than in the pictures. The pool is big enough and everyone was in it immediately. And the basketball net at the end was used by the 30 and 30 year olds daily. Although this is on the Main Street it was quiet in all rooms. For planning if the home right for you please note: Guest house has full bed (small for 2) and the ac didn’t work great. It is good for people who want their own kitchen and space The master bedroom has a king bed and in suite bathroom. The guest room has a queen bed, windows don’t open but ac works great. It has access to powder room but needs to use a different bathroom to shower. There is a awesome second floor bedroom with king bed. Stays very cool but no door at bottom of stairs. In other words not too private There is another full bed in the study. It shares a full bathroom with the upstairs bedroom. There are tons of living spaces inside and out with lots of seating. The guys loved watching tv outside on a loggia between the guesthouse and main House. Some of the best snorkeling is right down the street and magic sands is walkable the other directions. The only issue was the color tint on the windows is clouding making it hard to see through. It needs to be replaced immediately as the view is why you stay here. The normal aging of a home on the water is understandable. Overall it was a dream vacation and we thank the owners for allowing us to feel at home in their heaven. I am very much hoping to return next year

We love this house

by Jeannie on 06/19/2019
Sooo enjoy Kona Coast - they are so gracious and professional. House is great, second time we stayed. We love this house... neighbors not so much!!! Kona coast is great!!

Amazing place

by Gregory on 06/19/2019
The check in being at 4pm was the only minor inconvenience but other than that everything was great, pool right next door, shops, restaurant and beach area very close


by Thomas on 06/19/2019
The 512 Mauna Lani Villages unit was very nice as was the development. Very convenient to shopping and beaches. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed. It was great to be able to use the garage to park cars out of the sun. We did have issues with the BBQ not working. This was fixed by maintenance after a few days. The BBQ needs more repairs but it did work. The toilet in the downstairs bedroom bath had a leaky valve which caused it to refill every 5 minutes or so - maintenance fixed this issue after a few days. The washing machine makes some very loud noises which disturb sleep. Sounds like there's a brick in there during part of the cycle. All said and done, we were happy with the rental and thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. First time to the Big Island although we've been to Hawaii many times. We'll be back.

Too Short of a Stay in Paradise

by Keith. on 06/19/2019
It's just short of being in heaven when one wakes up early at Maluhia Punana in Kahaluu Bay Villas in Kailua-Kona to the sounds of birds chirping & waves crashing on shore. The entire complex is beautifully landscaped & meticulously manicured. Top that off with it's perfect location - just a block from the best snorkeling on the big island & a short drive to a beautiful white sands beach. We only stayed 5 nights, but wish it was double that. We dined at 6 or 7 of the best restaurants in the Kona area - all within a 4 mile drive. The spacious 2 bedroom condo has everything one needs & is extremely clean & tastefully decorated. We found out about this property from the owner's cousin & are already making plans to return.

A nice home

by Joy D on 06/19/2019
This home worked out well for the 5 of us (Adults). With bedrooms separated helped with having a little privacy. House, kitchen was well equipped. nice to have the beach chairs & umbrellas. The community pool was quite a ways off so we didn't get the opportunity to use it. But there was plenty of beaches within 20-40 minutes away.


by David on 06/19/2019
Nice, new, clean, fun and beautiful. Only issue was that the dryer did not work so we were limited on the laundry that we could do. I would definitely recommend.


by Shannon on 06/19/2019
Gorgeous, clean, and exactly as described! Use of the garage was so convenient! All we had to do is email or call and any questions were answered immediately. The pool was simply stunning and the pool lights were so much fun! Thank you for making our stay perfect!

Perfect Family Stay

by Elise on 06/19/2019
We took the whole family with us to on this trip. Everyone loved the house and area and beach. We didn't want to leave. This was our first trip to the Big Island and I personally loved it. We will for sure be back and for sure stay at this home. I have already been spreading the word and will be planning our next trip soon. Thank you to everyone that we dealt with in Hawaii to have this home and our trip turn out perfect!!! Mahalo - Mahalo...

Beautiful place!

by Michael on 06/19/2019
The house was gorgeous and the location was perfect. Everything in Kona was within minutes of the home. I would highly recommend this place. The only reason I gave 1 star for communication with the property manager is that he scheduled some work to be done on the house during our stay without informing us ahead of time. The house was booked months in advance and the work was booked weeks in advance so the knew we would be there. The noise and vibration made it impossible to be home during the work. Had we known, we would have scheduled an excursion that day, but of course it was scheduled on a day we had planned to enjoy the home. It lasted 2 days. The management did reimburse us for 1 night of our stay which helped. This is probably an unusual situation, so I would still recommend the home.
Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback after your recent stay.  We are happy to hear that you overall enjoyed your vacation, and do apologize again for the inconvenience of the unscheduled work. Maintenance of this kind normally is not scheduled during guest stays but this was unfortunately necessary.  It was a pleasure to welcome you as our guest and hope that to see you back soon.

Wonderful house!

by Andrew J on 06/19/2019
Everything was fantastic. We spent most of our time sitting on the lanai enjoying the sound of the ocean.

Perfect Vacation

by Tammy on 06/19/2019
House was exactly as advertised.

Beautiful home and view

by Patricia on 06/19/2019
Everything was perfect except there was no air conditioning in the den and kitchen area. Only the bedroom had a/c. It got super hot. From the listing we thought there was air conditioning throughout the house. You couldn’t beat the view and layout of the house other than that though! It was gorgeous and well stocked with beach toys and chairs!! Overall we loved the house!!

Superb everything

by Lance on 06/19/2019
Very comfortable and well equipped condo in great location. Loved everything about it.


by Laura on 06/12/2019
Great location—close to everything. The condo was neat & clean. The complex was well maintained and quite. We enjoyed the pool and the barbecue facilities. Not fancy, but clean and convenient—just what we were looking for in a vacation rental. Well priced.

Nice stay

by Dawn on 06/12/2019
Great location

Lovely covered lanai

by Ruthie on 06/12/2019
We had a very nice stay at the Country Club Villas, unit 117 from June 1-8. It was very close to the movie theatre, snorkeling beaches on Ali'i Drive, and about a 50 minute drive to Hapuna Beach State Park! Only half hour to the airport. Unit needs to be updated with air conditioning and tile flooring. But other than that, lovely covered lanai. We did not have to communicate with Kona Coast Vacations so I really can't comment on anything they did for us. Mahalo!


by Tara on 06/12/2019
Beautiful property with tons of space and a great view. I appreciated how Kona Coast Vacations checked in on us to make sure everything was going well and we made great use of the guidebooks available. Check in was effortless and we had no issues with any of the amenities like wifi, cable, pool use, etc. Thank you for a lovely vacation!

Very Nice

by Sam on 06/11/2019
Halii Kai 8F. The unit is very nice and we like this unit lots in general. Small things which would improve the unit would be new towels and bed linens. The towels and sheets all all showing their age and at the price the condo is renting for, are negatives for the unit.
On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important positive feedback.  
We will be reviewing the linens based on your feedback.  On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help!
 We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.

truly blissful holiday

by Sophie on 06/08/2019
This stunning and beautifully located holiday home provided us with a restful and homely stay during our visit to Kona. We blissfully watched from the deck as the sunset over the Pacific Ocean every day, and fell asleep each evening listening to the relaxing sounds of waves crashing against the rocks. The condo was exceptionally tidy and beautifully furnished, with a functional kitchen decked out to prepare any kind of meal you desire. Information provided was most helpful in identifying places to eat and see, and really clear. We had such a wonderful time during our stay, hiking and exploring, visiting local monuments and becoming acquainted with local culture. We highly recommend Kona Coast Vacations and this condo as an ideal location for a small family, or one even two couple. Our holiday was truly blissful holiday the Kona Coast condo home we were so lucky to stay within made it that much more unbelievable.

Beautiful, well-appointed

by Lonnie on 06/07/2019
The ultimate home (in paradise) away from home!

Wonderful Stay

by Aaron on 06/07/2019
Great location and views. Loved the salt water pool facing the ocean. This condo had nice extras like a closet with a cooler and ice packs, a boogie board and snorkel gear, and beach mats and a beach umbrella. Would definitely stay here again.

Great property, location, and amenities

by Neil on 06/07/2019
One of the best VRBOs I have ever rented. Great communication from the rental owner with arrival info, the place was spotless...This is a very quite and clean complex and was the perfect location for our Bjg Island Adventures.

Lovely Condo!

by Jessica on 06/07/2019
We loved our short stay here and would definitely come back the next time we're in Kona! The condo is in a great location to walk to shops, restaurants or a small beach and the view from the balcony is perfect!

Completely awesome house on so many levels!

by Brian on 06/07/2019
This property is absolutely fantastic! It was so great with our 20 and 22 yr old as well and they enjoyed it. We even had extra room for another family if we wanted. The layout was great and the VIEWS are spectacular! This is a must for families or couples visiting Kona! Thank you for such a great time and place!

Beautiful views

by Abbe on 06/07/2019
We really enjoyed our stay at Banyan Tree. The unit was very clean and had all the supplies we needed. There is a washer and dryer which is sooo nice to have. The master bed was so comfortable, the sheets were super soft and pillows were very supportive. The location isn’t bad, you do have to drive to go eat or get drinks, but only about 5-10 minutes. We loved how quite the complex was. During our 4 day stay, we only saw one other couple once. We would definitely stay again.

Amazing property

by Harlan on 06/07/2019
Can’t beat the location and the property is amazing.

thank everyone again for a wonderful stay

by Jeff on 06/07/2019
I wanted to thank everyone again for a wonderful stay while I was in Kona. I'm extremely grateful for all the effort and wonderful service on the part of all the staff and in particular Makenzie. She did a marvelous job in getting us new accommodations when beyond anyone's control, my previous reservation at the White Sands was no longer available due to renovations. Makenzie along with everyone else went way and beyond in getting myself and the other party that was sharing the reservation new accommodations at the Country Club Villa. Once again I wish to extend my sincere thanks to everyone at Kona Coast Vacations for their professionalism and wonderful service provided in helping make our stay as well as my best friends wedding a success.

The house was awesome

by Luckisha on 06/05/2019
It had everything. it was spacious and had a lot of amenities that we wanted. our concierge David was awesome. We got good discounts. Everything was close by. The best local for everything. i already referred someone to give them a call for yheir 50th birthday vacation.


by Debby on 06/05/2019
Gorgeous property with great amenities. Advice to NOT use GPS to find the property was spot on, but it was very hard to follow the written directions in the dark, as some signage was not well lit. Inclusion of a map could have made arrival a little better.

Spectacular Views!

by Mark on 06/03/2019
My bad that i didn’t see there was no air conditioning. Because the bedroom is down a narrow hallway from the balcony window there wasn’t much air circulation at night and we don’t sleep well in heat. The apartment is very nice and the views are spectacular. Just sorry my last 3 of 10 days were spent with little sleep.
Aloha & thank you for taking a moment to share your experience. Many homes and entire condo complexes in Hawaii were designed to take in the ocean breezes, and they were constructed without the thought of using AC.   Our goal is to make your stay the most enjoyable as it can be so please contact us again on your next visit and we'll find you the perfect fit!   Thanks again for your feedback and we look forward to seeing you again on your next visit.

Wonderful 10 days in this condo

by Laura on 06/03/2019
This condo was all we had hoped for. It was very well stocked with everything we needed for our 10-day stay. We spent a part of almost every day at the oceanfront pool … so wonderful watching the powerful waves and listing to them crash on the lava. The sunset viewing there is perfect. We knew that this required stairs to get to the unit, but were surprised to find so many stairs once we entered. I counted 49 stairsteps from the road/parking level to the master bedroom on the top floor. The unit is entered on the second floor, but the main living area is actually on the 3rd floor and the master bedroom is on the 4th floor. We had no problem with all the stairs, we just wanted people looking to rent this condo to be clear that they needed to be able to climb to the 3rd and 4th floors. We truly did have a great time staying in this condo and in Kanaloa. Thank you for opening your Big Island home to us.

Magical Experience!

by Patty on 06/03/2019
This home was Absolutely Beautiful! This was our 1st time in Hawaii and it was for my son's wedding! We had several family members together in the home but the house was so spacious and secluded that you never felt like you were in each other's way. I would get up before anyone so I good enjoy the beautiful sunrise with coffee. The views are AMAZING! My grandkids loved the daily visits to the "Gecko Villiage" which were 2 beautiful plants with cute geckos and lizards! The pool was clean, large and the house had pool toys for the kids! We purchased a few and left for future guests! The property is very well maintained and the vegetation makes this home a tropical paradise. Donna at the gate was very professional but funny at the same time. We felt very safe staying in this gated community. Our family celebrated my son's wedding and this home was the cherry on the top. Only suggestion would be portable air-conditioning units- not sure if window units would work for the upstairs.

Condo that has it all

by Brittany on 06/03/2019
This condo had everything we needed! From kitchen supplies, to beach equipment, it had more than we could have asked for! I wish the couch and bed were slightly more comfy but by the time we came home from exploring all day, it didn’t entirely matter! The check in process was super easy as was check out. We will definitely come back!

Big Island Experience

by David on 06/03/2019
We came here 3 years ago and loved the island. We stayed here and loved the property. So we came back again and fell in love over again! The stay was awesome and our vacation even better! I would recommend staying here to everyone! It is the BEST!!!

Great trip!!

by Jason on 06/03/2019
Great property and great location, very secure and safe. Bed could be a bit more comfortable but other than that it was perfect. Highly recommend

Schön gelegene gepflegte Anlage

by Christian on 06/03/2019
Aufenthalt auf Big Island war top. Sehr schöne gepflegte Anlage, Condo war gut ausgestattet. Kleinere Reparaturen an der Küchenlichtabdeckung und der Insektenschutztür zur Terrasse erforderlich.


by Mark on 06/03/2019
We greatly enjoyed our time in Kona, and this spacious and very nice home. The nearby beach is wonderful, and the home is very close to shopping, etc. I recommend it!

Nice place and reasonably priced

by Brady on 06/03/2019
This property was very nice. It was clean upon arrival and was quite easy to find. I didn't take full advantage of the property as most days I was down at the Sheraton for a wedding party or out and about exploring but overall it worked great as a place to sleep. Pricing is very reasonable also.

Great stay!

by Hafeez on 06/03/2019
Beautiful property with a great ocean view and beautiful sunsets. Lanai was perfect in the evenings. Great location! We were able to fit a travel bassinet in the master bedroom but not sure one would fit in either of the other rooms.

Great home, great location!

by Thomas H on 05/31/2019
Very nice, enjoyed the visit!

Highly recommend!

by Tony on 05/31/2019
Magnificent view, seclusion without any want for amenities and conveniences that a discreet and luxurious accommodation today provides. Delicious restaurants nearby, many shops and points of interest. The house and lawn are immaculately kept, the neighbors were quiet, had everything and more for a family to vacation indefinitely. The island is THE island among the Hawaiian islands to explore, and what a relief to NOT have the ugly side of over-developement!

Home away from home

by Cindy on 05/31/2019
This is our second time within a year staying at this property. It's spacious, peaceful and wonderfully relaxing. Everything we need (parking spot inside close to elevators and unit; close to restaurants and activities; access to ocean - my hubby loves to snorkel - note: it takes some effort to climb into and out of the ocean from the lava coastline; pool super close; a wonderful lanai and amazing view/sunsets). We'll definitely be back!

Wonderful stay

by Nathan on 05/31/2019
Nice quiet little resort. Close to the beach and down town


by Christina on 05/31/2019
My friends and I had the most magical stay here. It has everything you need and pictures don’t do justice. Highly recommend this vacation home!!!

Great place

by Tim on 05/31/2019
A beautiful place with an incredible view Very well stocked and close to town. A wonderful place to get away!

Sea Village

by Howard on 05/31/2019
Everything about our stay was fantastic. However, the only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is the lack of A/C.
Aloha and thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay despite not having AC.

Great place to stay in Kailua-Kona

by Edward L on 05/31/2019
This was our second stay here and we came back because it has everything we want -kitchen, pools, beach and close but not too close to town. One thing to know about Casa de Emdecko is the routine, often weekly, water shut offs. They usually occur on Wednesdays from 9 to 12-a minor inconvenience at most. One upshot of this however is that sand clogs the sink outlets and shower head significantly reducing the flow of water. We were able to clear the sinks but had to have maintenance take care of the shower head as we had no wrenches. Otherwise a wonderful place to stay.

Great spot!

by George on 05/31/2019
We stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed to condo and the location! This was an excellent base to explore all that Kailua/Kona has to offer... would definitely go back!

We had such a fantastic stay at GMH @ Keauhou Estates!

by Allie on 05/31/2019
It was our second time staying at this property and it certainly did not disappoint. Stunning views, such a breezy, airy, open layout of the home with clean, spacious bathrooms and air conditioning if necessary. Not a complaint to be had! You cannot go wrong with a stay on this gorgeous property.

Amazing unobstructed view of ocean

by Mike on 05/31/2019
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at J101 in Mauna Lani terrace. The place was way beyond our expectations. It is hard to judge from photos the quality of a condo rental. This unit was so clean, immaculate and top notch in every way we were pleasantly surprised. Even though you could see the ocean there was literally no foot traffic in front of our unit. The pool was right around the corner to the right ( we never used it). There is a beautiful boardwalk along the ocean to the left of the condo that leads to the clubhouse beach. our building - building J - was the closest building to the clubhouse beach. Pretty nice. A beautiful spot. Lots of free chairs and cabanas. The water was calm in the bay so perfect for swimming. And just a few feet out from the white sand beach, there were lots of coral and fish for some pretty good snorkeling. There is also a hut at the club where you can opt to rent gear or sign up for excursions. The clubhouse also has a bar restaurant with some wonderful food and drinks. If you follow the boardwalk further to the left there are private gated homes and a golf course with a historical ancient fishing rock path. Very beautiful, unexpected and interesting. If you follow the oceanfront to the right of the condo, there is the Mauna Lani beach resort hotel which has its own beach ( not as nice - more rocky) and the resort was under renovations. So we had no neighbors at all on our right. That will obviously change in the future possibly affecting foot traffic. If you continue past the Mauna Lani resort you’ll eventually find the Fairmont Orchid which is another great oceanfront property with a bar restaurant and shops. I can’t say enough good things about this unit or it’s location. It is about 30- 40 minutes north of Kona, so we did have to drive for a couple excursions in kona but honestly you could just opt to schedule excursions out your back Door. We didn’t know that until we arrived at our condo. Also at the entrance of mauna Lani resort there is a beautiful shopping center with some great shops and restaurants and a nice grocery market. So convenient. We ate breakfast at “under the bodhi tree” one morning for a fabulous local organic fruit and grain breakfast. We also had a quick bite another morning at the coffee shop for danishes. And we ate dinner at Tommy Bahama restaurant and rented our snorkel gear at “snorkel Bob’s” - all in the same shopping center. It was wonderful. We highly recommend

Plenty of space for the whole family

by Amy on 05/30/2019
Amazing location across from Kahalu'u Beach Park! We spent a lot of time on the large lanai enjoying dinner and the sunsets. Plenty of space for the whole family. The unit included laundry, kitchen, and beach gear so we didn't have to worry about a thing!


by Ray on 05/30/2019
The property was just as advertised, although the pictures don't really depict how nice the property was, especially the ocean view. Our concierge, David, was very helpful and responsive. We will definitely consider booking again with Kona Coast Vacations.


by Rebecca on 05/30/2019
We stayed at Sea Village 1101 and it was amazing. Great location, prime ocean view and warm customer service. Definitely recommend this place.

Recommend it to anyone looking to stay in this area

by Alfred on 05/30/2019
We stayed at the Keauhou Surf and Racquet Club unit 1206. It is one of the most beautiful units we have ever rented. Just as pictured and described. The ocean view was incredible from the living room and master bedroom. Just loved sitting on the lanai and relaxing. Unit was very clean, organized and well stocked. It was also nice to have a washer and dryer in the unit. We had everything that we needed for a lovely vacation. Bed and pillows were comfortable, towels were nice quality. Dave the concierge was very helpful with booking a tour for us and with information about things to do and restaurants nearby. There is no air conditioning but there was always a nice breeze and ceiling and floor fans on the days that it was a little warm. We would not hesitate to rent this unit again and recommend it to anyone looking to stay in this area.

Paradise Perfect

by Rhonda on 05/29/2019
What a wonderful week our family of 7 enjoyed in this oceanfront home This quiet secure neighborhood location was extremely convenient to everything (downtown shopping district, highway access, food and services) but off the beaten path enough to feel remote The patio, pool and hot tub provided a beautiful overlook to the ocean black lava rock beach which provided regular soothing sounds of the crashing waves but allowed fo a nearby sand beach (the queens bath) for a quieter water experience Snorkeling is really not an option here due to the rocks and waves but several short drives away can provide that experience if needed The home provided all the nice amenities required for our family (a new grill was a nice perk) and the bedrooms provided the cool sleeping arrangements after a sunny day in the pool (or daytrips) Plenty of fans are included to provide interior comfort for the non conditioned spaces of the home; which were needed on several of the warm and humid days/evenings The sliding pivot doors from the interior to the deck are awesome to make the home completely open to the ocean (although the south doorway does need some adjustment to allow for a fluid open/close) The entire family had an amazing week in Kona and this home was the primary reason as it provided a true family bonding environment Check in/out were seamless and we regularly noted the security guards quietly around the neighborhood which was nice knowing there are a couple of public beach access points open during the day and the nearby ballparks do have several nice and quiet homeless people Quick note for groceries: head to the Safeway as it has every quality item needed Thank you for opening your beautiful home to our family for this wonderful week. We hope to return again some day.

Wonderful spot in Kona

by Julie on 05/29/2019
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.

Wonderful/Clean Condo

by Janos on 05/29/2019
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo. The kitchen was very nice and had all of the dishes and cookware we needed. The bed was very comfortable and we had access to many useful things such as beach chairs and a washer/dryer. I would highly recommend this condo/renter!

Birthday Get away

by David on 05/29/2019
We loved this property. The house is well maintained, the grounds are beautiful, the pool is such a plus to have your own. Evening swims are awesome. And the sunsets from the hot tub, fabulous. The neighborhood is so quiet, didn't hear anybody all week. Convenient to everything in Kona. Couldn't have asked for a better house to spend a family vacation in.

Wonderful unit!

by Kenneth on 05/29/2019
Beautifully decorated. Great views.

The views of the golf course and ocean were amazing

by Judith on 05/29/2019
Our stay at Hali’s Kai 8F was wonderful. The very clean unit was well equipped and a comfortable size for the 6 of us. The views of the golf course and ocean were amazing and far better than the pictures portrayed. Through communication with Kona Coast Vacations, we were well prepared to gain access to the property and start our vacation. The concierge service was helpful and I did enjoy an unforgettable helicopter tour of the Big Island. The pool area overlooking the ocean was comfortable and it was great to have the option of drinks, snacks and dinner poolside. We did have an issue with the waste disposal but a call to Kona Coast resolved the problem within hours. They graciously accommodated a late checkout for us as we had an evening flight. I would highly recommend this unit and Hali’i Kai.


by Julie on 05/29/2019
We had a wonderful experience renting with Kona Coast Vacations. Excellent communication prior to check-in. Beautiful, clean property. Nice amenities. Highly recommend them when traveling to Big Island.


by Pat on 05/29/2019
We were very pleased with our stay at White Sands Beach. The condo was spacious and we found everything we needed to feel at home. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to the Big Island.

Our place was amazing

by Renee on 05/29/2019
So much space, although we spent very little time inside due to the beautiful weather outside. The hot tub was greatly appreciated. We received prompt service when something wasn’t working. We loved the friendly little cat that liked to hang around. The views were amazing, especially at sunset. We had an awesome time at Heavens.

Great vacation

We had a great time. Fun property.

Working away in Kona

by Oliver on 05/28/2019
We were in #324, Alii Villas for 3 weeks in May. The apartment was lovely and so well stocked with really nice kitchen appliances and tools. Name brand stuff, not the usual Dollar Store things that I have found in other rentals. Bed was good, sheets were soft and there were plenty of towels. The view from the lanai was spectacular. My coffee and the ocean make the perfect combination. We were actually in Kona on a working vacation so this made a lovely home to come back to after "work" each day. There was a sunset crew down by the water each evening to search for the green flash. Oh and the pool was beautiful, small, but so well cared for. Many times I had it to myself. I had a small issue working the TV. Turned out I had an old channel list. Kona Coast, who manages the property, sent someone over to get it straight. They were responsive to all my questions. I would definitely use them again to stay in Kona.

Great vacation

by Tracy on 05/28/2019
The condo was good for what we needed. The only thing was the location can tend to be a lil bit noisy if your on the street side of the place.

Nice little spot in Kona

by Dianne on 05/28/2019
Great ocean view and convenient location . Close walk to town ( about 20 min)

Very Nice Condo

by Tracie on 05/28/2019
The condo was great. Clean and remodeled. Had everything needed for a wonder vacation.

Best location and views on the island

by Anne on 05/28/2019
We had an amazing time at this magnificent home! Everything was clean, plenty of seating, towels (even beach towels), all new kitchen appliances and well stocked with supplies. We enjoyed the pool day and night! Short walk to a nice poke bowl restaurant that was delicious. Away from the crowds of town. We all enjoyed the best sleep to the sound of the ocean. Would love to return and repeat it all!

Comfortable place to stay!

by Queenie on 05/28/2019
Well managed, comfortable, clean place, next to beach.

Lovely Stay

by Andrew on 05/28/2019
Overall, we had a lovely stay in unit 306! The ONLY thing that I found disappointing was that the deck of the unit. It was covered in bird poop and dirt when we arrived. I spent an hour on our first day sweeping and scrubbing the deck so that I would feel comfortable sitting out at the table. The furniture on the deck could also use an upgrade or just a good scrubbing. The positives were definitely the casa's location, environment, and the salt water pool is probably one of the best! The king bed is also a huge plus!

Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important positive feedback.  

We apologize that the lanai had been overlooked by the cleaning staff.   On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us...we are happy to help!

 We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again

Good on a budget

by Levonia on 05/28/2019
Noisy neighbors but a cute, simple rental in a good location.


by Mary on 05/28/2019
Wonderful property. All was as described in listing and actually better. there was 3 couples and each had a master suite which leads out to backyard. We spent all of our time outside taking in the gorgeous view. House is also very well equipped with everything you may need. We had an amazing time. Highly recommend this property

Our villa was perfect!

by Tara on 05/25/2019
We had a great time in Hawaii and our villa was perfect! It literally came with everything u need to feel At home except for food and drinks! The location was perfect just a short 25 min walk into town and the view was spectacular! The unit was clean and decorated very nicely! It even had all the beach and pool gear necessary to have fun on the beach! The host responded immediately back to me if I had any questions and they were super accommodating! We will definitely be staying there again!

Everything we needed and a little more

by Bill on 05/25/2019
We stayed at Casa De Emdeko 136. I want to preface this review by saying that I'm in the vacation rental business back on the mainland. The Kona Coast vacation rental team were fantastic. From the time I booked the property, and throughout our stay, every person I spoke to was knowledgeable and energetic. David, the concierge, was an added bonus and super helpful. I would highly recommend picking his brain during your stay. As far as the condo is concerned, it was everything we needed and a little more. Bonus items: Beach towels, cooler, life jacket and boogie boards. The location was central to about anything you would like to experience. It more then served its purpose for what we were here to do. My family and I came to Hawaii to see the beauty of what the island had to offer. I read reviews about bugs, sheets not being cotton, the decor of the property and condition of the home. This is a tropical paradise and there will be bugs. I'm sure all the properties are on some type of pest control program but you cannot expect a house to be 100% bug free. I'm sure the cleaning companies spend thousands of dollars a year replacing sheets and towels that were misused during guests stay. What people need to realize is these vacation rentals are being used by the general public and quite frankly some people just do not respect them. I know from my own experience in this industry, owners and property management companies do their best to provide a great experience for their guests. They usually are under a tight time line to turn these homes. Give them a break and try to understand who is causing the issues that may arise when staying in a property. I can promise you the owners and management company do not go into the homes before a guest arrival and sabotage appliances, disconnect internet, dink walls, scratch pans etc... I rented this property with the understanding that things can and do go wrong. It happens at my own house. I don't expect compensation, I don't expect someone to be at my beckon call. I do expect a safe environment, within the home, and I received that. I didn't come to Hawaii to do a home inspection or critique a owners decorating style. I want to thank the owners for opening up their beautiful home to my family. I want to thank Kona Coast Vacations for being as helpful as they were. I don't need my hand held, but if I had any questions, they were there to assist. We have made some lifelong memories and I'm very grateful. I don't have time in my life to be so negative and critical. Come to Hawaii to enjoy all it has to offer not to see what you can get back during your stay.


by Andrea on 05/25/2019
We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Kona Isle E21. It's a lovely condo, tastefully decorated and very comfortable and clean. The kitchen is well stocked with everything in "like-new" condition. The bed mattress is very supportive. Even the lanai furniture is comfortable! There are those little extras, too: games, playing cards, Hawaiian themed books. The beautiful oceanfront setting was amazing. The lanai was the perfect place for breakfast in the mornings and watching the sunset in the evenings. We loved the view and being able to hear the sound of the waves in every room. The grounds and pool are very well maintained. There's a lending library on site. Kona Coast Vacations was easy to work. Booking the property was a breeze. There was an issue with the TV and a friendly KCV staffer talked us through it over the phone.


by Steve on 05/22/2019
It's my second time using them, and they are great to deal with. we arrived rather early, and they offered their office fridge so our groceries wouldn't perish! Kona Reef D33 is a fantastic condo, it was spotless when we arrived. Great job, made our vacation wonderful! Mahalo!

Kona Coast went over and above

by Vickie on 05/22/2019
The condo that we stayed in on our Hawaii vacation was amazing! Kona Coast went over and above to make our stay wonderful! The condo was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. It is the nicest place we have ever stayed in our visit to the Hawaiian Islands! I would definitely recommend them to others and use them again for our family!

Highly Recommend

by Laura on 05/22/2019
We stayed at a Kona Coast Vacations property and I have no complaints. The ease of check in and check out was amazing. Our condo was well equipped and clean. The customer service was there from the moment I booked the vacation and all the way through to check out! I highly recommend Kona Coast Vacations for all your Big Island reservations.

Completely Amazing

by Elizabeth on 05/21/2019
Our family vacation was absolutely amazing because we had such a beautiful home to stay in. The location could not be any more convenient since it was on Alli Drive. I would tell anyone if they wanted to stay in Kailua-Kona area this is the place to stay. We definitely stay again

Beautiful home worth all the amenities

by Jeff on 05/21/2019
Family of 7 with plenty of personal space. Beautiful sunsets. Loved the open air windows and the airflow though out the house. Patio was amazing!

Best unit on the property for 4 to 6 guests!

by Brian on 05/21/2019
We have stayed in 3 of the 4 buildings at Sea Village and this one is our favorite! Our 3rd time in this unit which we refer to as "our Home Away From Home". This beautiful condo is a corner unit with two water front lanais. Upstairs master has one as well as the living room. The kitchen has everything you need to cook inside or bbq on the grills just outside the front door. The pool is also located just near the entry and socializing with other tenants adds to the fun. The sunsets are memorable and the quiet early morning time on the lanai starts your day with zen. The grounds are very well kept. The staff on premises are accommodating and check in is flawless! We always love to see what "finds" are in the closet for use. This year was a cooler which we took to the beach everyday. Great beach chairs to use, some snorkel gear and floaties. The location of this unit is away from parking , close enough to carry items in but far enough that you do not hear vehicle noise. Sea Village is perfectly situated to walk into town if you like or minutes in the car. We cook in the condo, shop at nearby Safeway, Walmart, Costco and Farmers Markets. Great restaurants are close as well. We even Uber'd to the beach when others in our party went hiking on the other side of the island. Love, Love Love this unit. Best location, best property, best rental ease/communication!

This place was absolutely amazing!

by Vickie on 05/20/2019
They went over and above to make our stay wonderful. It was spacious and clean and beautiful. It is the nicest place we have ever stayed in all of our trips to the Hawaiian Islands. We would definitely stay there again!!


by Derrick on 05/20/2019
Excellent accommodations, our time in Waikoloa was amazing. Thank you!

Fantastic location, great view... impressed with staff!

by Kent on 05/20/2019
The condo is in a great location, and the views are killer! The lanai is beautiful, and set up perfectly to enjoy morning, noon and evenings, overlooking the golf course and ocean, with a dining table and chairs, plus two lounge chairs. All of the furniture was very comfortable, and the place was extremely clean. Though there isn't air conditioning, there are plenty of fans to keep the air moving... and it's always pleasant on the lanai! It's also great that there are two bathrooms with one bedroom, so everyone can get ready at the same time. And we were very impressed with the people in the office! Thanks for a great stay!

Loved this home. Beautiful view, perfect location with a great beach out front!

by Gale on 05/20/2019
With out hesitation, will book with Kona Coast again. The home was all we expected and more!! Comfortable, clean and very well appointed. Will be back. Thx

We had a wonderful time! Cheaper than a hotel and Convenient!

by Valerie on 05/20/2019
This is a nice condo. It had everything we needed and the location was great. The pool was wonderful for swims after sunset. There is a salt water pool that you have access to as well that is owned by the state. The management company gave clear directions, offered us advice on activities to do while on the island and called the last day to offer to store our bags for us if our flight was much later than checkout. Overall I am impressed. I won't be going to hotels anymore. This is cheaper and more convenient.

Alii Villas 227

by Arnold on 05/20/2019
Great place.

Comfortable and well equipped!

by Justine on 05/19/2019
Overall, our stay was great, Richard, the on-site manager was very friendly and helpful. The unit was comfortable and well-equipped. The only thing we found lacking was an ironing board.

We will def stay here again!

by Sakiko on 05/17/2019
This place is amazing, especially location!And provision of beach gears is also great.

Great condo in an amazingly gorgeous and convenient location.

by Ramez on 05/17/2019
Beautiful views of the water and the sunset. A lovely beach - too rocky for swimming, but great for staring at the waves and watching surfers. Air conditioning and three king beds.Everything was easy! We loved it!

Sunsets from the condo balcony could not be beat!

by Bri on 05/17/2019
Beautifully decorated Condo. Plenty of space good location close to grocery store , farmers market and a few restaurants. Unit is hot plenty of fans though and AC in both bedrooms the vaulted sealing in the Master bedroom made the AC unit not that effective but still better than having no AC. The second bedroom stayed really cool though. The loft was hot though. Closing the balcony blinds really helped keep the place cooler. Pool was nice usually empty a nice place to hang out at the end of the day. Sunsets from the condo balcony could not be beat! Overall a great place and would stay here again.

Wonderful property

by Jessica on 05/17/2019
The condo we rented was absolutely perfect! Upon arrival there was designated parking which was a plus! The condo was very clean and very well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and the AC in both bedrooms made it easy to sleep. My family and I really enjoyed eating out on the lanai every morning. The pool was wonderful. But my most favorite part is the location!!!!! It is walking distance to everything located in Kailua. There are shops, restaurants, bars and an abundance of places to just relax and enjoy the view of the ocean. One place I must add is Keoki's Ono Fish & Chips. It is about 30 minutes south of Kailua and it is EXCELLENT!! It is definitely a must while on your trip. Thank you for an amazing place to stay. I would absolutely recommend this unit!!

Perfect Location

by Suzanne on 05/17/2019
A beautiful property in a wonderful location! This was our third time renting this property and we have never been disappointed with the location, amenities or the service of of Kona Coast Vacations.


by Nancy on 05/15/2019
Thank you for helping us have a fantastic vacation. There were a couple of bumps in the process of reserving our unit but the crew at KCV took care of the issues and we stayed with the plan. A great group to work with. Answered all questions, every email and phone call. Mahalo to the Kona Coast crew. Once we got to Hawaii, they checked in to make sure all was good and sent emails along the way with great reminders, suggestions, updates, etc. we will be using them again on our next trip. The unit : everything we had hoped it would be. Clean, spacious, convenient. Close to the activities we wanted to do. Never stay in a hotel if You can book with KCV. You will love it.

Absolutely amazing

by Sam on 05/15/2019
From the moment we arrived to when we left - nothing short of a sublime experience. We will be back!!!


by Steve on 05/15/2019
Great company to deal with, it was our second time using them. Kona Reef D33 is a great place to lay your hat in Kona

Highly recommend!!!!

by Seth on 05/15/2019
Had an amazing stay at this house !!! Great views, close to town and beaches. Easy check in. Everything we needed for a relaxing vacation! Highly recommend!!!!

Mauna Lani Lux Retreat

by Elaine on 05/14/2019
We had a fabulous 5 day stay at this well located condo. It proved to be beyond our expectations: spacious, tastefully decorated & immaculate, quiet, sunset views from upstairs master, comfy beds, good lighting, plentiful amenities (they thought of everything!). It’s a great location near the Fairmont Orchid. The customer service from Kona Vacations was excellent and prompt. We highly recommend & would stay here again.

Well equipped, spacious, compfortable.

by Thierry on 05/13/2019
Very nice apartment, excellently well equipped. Spacious, comfortable, swimming pool and very nice terrace. Communication with the agency that manages the housing very efficient. Recommend!

Best Place Ever

by Richard on 05/13/2019
This place was fantastic! Excellent location with truly "spectacular ocean views". We loved being able to listen to the waves! Everything about the place was great, from the huge and well furnished wrap around lanai, to the excellent cross ventilation, to the private elevator, and of course the well furnished interior. The condo was clean, well maintained, and very spacious. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone and the next time we visit The Big Island we hope to be able to rent the same place as it would be hard to beat!

Beautiful Unit, Great Location

by Donna on 05/13/2019
We’ve rented many VRBO properties over the years and this is one of the best maintained units we have ever stayed in. The condo is tastefully updated and furnished, the bed comfortable, and the kitchen well supplied. The view is terrific - both ocean and town views. The only caution to potential renters is that the bedroom is air conditioned but the rest of the unit is not. Because the condo faces west, it gets a nice sunset view but the living also can get quite hot in the afternoon. Generally there is a pretty good breeze in Kailua so the breeze circulates nicely with the front screen door open. The bedroom is at the back of the unit and doesn’t get much breeze so the air conditioner really comes in handy. The management company is very responsive. I couldn’t find an iron in the unit and the management company dropped a new one off the same day. I very much recommend this property. We will for sure return.

Nice condo in a great location and well-kept complex

by Magen on 05/13/2019
This is the 5th VRBO on the Big Island that I’ve stayed in. It's a 2nd story condo in a 3 story building. It has a great location being 15 minutes from downtown Kona, across the street from the Kahalu'u Beach Park and 5 minutes from the Keauhou shopping center. The pros: Most quiet condo complex I've ever stayed in with underground (shaded) assigned parking, nice and clean pool, and secured entry to elevator and stairs made it feel very safe. Large lanai with a great view, recently remodeled and well appointed kitchen, comfortable dining and living area, air conditioning, wonderful window coverings throughout that provided almost black out conditions if desired. Living room and master bed had nice size TVs with plenty of channels, and a small selection of fiction books and Hawaii related books. Compact size washer and dryer worked well, as did the fridge, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and coffeemaker. Both rooms had nice sized bathrooms with a shower and a separate tub. Condo was clean and well stocked with toilet paper, garbage bags, soaps, etc., which is not always the case with VRBOs. The Cons: Both beds were uncomfortably firm and a bit worn out for us and this was really our only major complaint, but it's a big one and one that would prevent me from booking this condo again. Maybe a foam or latex topper would help, but newer and softer mattresses would be better. The bedroom and bathroom doors were open-flow wood slatted (louvered with gaps). I've only seen this on closet doors before. The doors provided very little light and noise privacy between bedrooms and bathrooms, which was only a minor issue since I was staying with a friend, but could have been fairly awkward had we been two couples staying here. Overall nice condo in a great spot!

Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important feedback.  

We apologize that the mattresses were a little too firm for your taste but the beds are both under 2 years old.  However, on your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us - we are happy to help!

 We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again

Great location!

by Cydna on 05/13/2019
Lots of beach towels and quality beach toys. Good supply of t.p. and paper towels. Nice furnishings. Too few trash bags, laundry soap and dish soap for 10 days. Replacing rusty sink and shower rod would make this a 5 star.

Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback about your recent stay.
In order to keep costs down, our properties provide a starter pack of supplies only and we do inform our guests of this in the Rental Agreement. Some units may contain an additional supply as we do leave any supplies purchased by guests in the unit. Please be assured that your suggestion has been shared with our management team to be addressed. We appreciate you taking the time to share with us.
It has been a pleasure to serve you and we look forward to welcoming you back the next time your travels bring you to the Big Island! 

You can watch surfers and boogie boarders from lanai!

by Lori on 05/11/2019
A decent place to stay for a few days. Nice pool area. You can watch surfers and boogie boarders from lanai. The surf is very loud in this area though.

We all loved the location - absolutely beautiful!

by Kassandra on 05/11/2019
The views from this place are fabulous. The downstairs rooms get a bit warm but the host has fans & it was fine. The home is beautiful and you can't beat being right on the ocean.

Our stay was fantastic very clean place very central location awesome pool and barbecue area.

by Eric on 05/11/2019
Great place to stay I would stay there again very nice very clean very convenient centrally located in Great Falls and barbecue area would definitely recommend this place and would stay there again. Only negative was this unit did not have washer and dryer in the unit.

Very nice to stay here, we highly recommend!

by Akshay on 05/11/2019
We didn't think the beauty of the pictures would be true, but the absolutely were. Opening the door to the unit immediately shows the feeling of Hawaii. One wall is completely ground to ceiling windows. This is honest to goodness beside a beautiful golf course. Every morning we made breakfast at leisure and ate on the lanai, looking out past palm trees to the ocean. In fact the loft has its own complete washroom with shower, an extra. The kitchen was unbelievably well appointed. Big appliances, little appliances (coffee grinder, hand mixer etc.), and all utensils. We cooked joyfully. The neighbourhood is a very Hawaii style area. Less than a 5-minute drive away is a full market with fast food and necessities.

Very clean and updated. Thank you we had the best time!

by Leeanne on 05/11/2019
Great location! Condo has everything and more that we needed for our stay. Very clean and updated. We 100% recommended Kona Isle.

Stayed here 4 nights and would certainly do so again!

by Phil on 05/11/2019
The pictures don't lie. This is a view that is now ingrained into my memory. Stayed here 4 nights and would certainly do so again. There is a bit of extra stuff to do to rent this place out (separate legal agreement to sign via email IIRC as well as actual arrival and departure dates/times on the island), but smooth transaction otherwise. FYI: There is the expectation that you clean all dishes, remove all trash/recycling, and do any excess laundry (more than a single set of towels per person). Laundry machines are not in the unit, but are still attached to the building itself. Note: A prior review complained about the restaurant renovations being noisy and you should know that the restaurant is already up and running (no noise issues).

This is a truly amazing condo--the location is 100/100!

by Brad on 05/11/2019
Truly breathtaking oceanfront view. The pounding surf and rocks out front--oceanfront and a corner unit to boot. The light/brightness throughout, the cleanliness of the whole apartment, comfy king sized bed in main bedroom. Very ample 2 bathrooms. We spent so much time on the lanai and watching the surfers and the rhythmic ocean surf was mesmerizing and relaxing (although definitely loud, but not in a bad way). Very breezy too--we didn't use the AC once. A short walk into town. Lovely in every way. We had an amazing time and will definitely be back!

Enjoyed the sunset every night!

by Sharon on 05/11/2019
Great view. Nice pool and grounds.

Amazing place...we would stay here again!

by Annie on 05/11/2019
Really amazing place, the photos really represent the place. For the beach everything was there, chairs, umbrella, towels and cooler. The view is amazing we could even see dolphins.

We had a great time staying there for two weeks!

by Laurel on 05/11/2019
This place was a little dated, but very clean and quiet. Beds were comfortable, furniture was very comfortable and clean.

Awesome place!

by Catherine on 05/10/2019
The villa was large and very pleasant for a 6 night stay. The pool is less than 2 minute walk; refreshing. Have to drive 5 minutes to the resort beach area; and there are chairs and umbrellas on first-come, first-serve basis; we had no problems getting one by 10 a.m. each day. There is a FoodLand grocery store in the resort complex, so we were able to prepare meals and not eat out. Overall, I highly recommend the property.

Kanaloa keauhou 1603

by Betsy on 05/09/2019
This is not the top floor it is the middle floor. Beautiful view of ocean, golf course and coastline towards Kialua. Kitchen was very well stocked for utensils, plates glassware and cooking. Bed comfortable and well stocked towels and beach towels. Not sure if the people above are full time. You could hear them walking quite a bit and cooked most nights and mornings. Since most windows and doors are open on the porches we had an hour of their cooking blowing through the condo. Not pleasant however all smells cleared quickly. Overall place was nice however the furniture was ok and breakfast chairs fraying. Needs to be updated. We would stay here again. We have stayed in many condos at kanaloa and all are clean and have upscale kitchens and large bathrooms.

Great stay!!

by Jerica on 05/09/2019
We stayed here last week and really enjoyed our stay. We arrived to the condo with ease and the AC was running when we got in which was FANTASTIC as it was a HOT day . The condo was very clean and the landscaping is beautiful. We picked this property because we had stayed here before (different condo). The kitchen is well equipped and there are also great beach chairs, plenty of towels, etc. We had few needs while there. The location is really great too. It's within walking distance of some great things (market, shore access, coffee) and so close to the "strip" with shopping and restaurants. I love having the liquor store at the front of the building for last minute items or an evening snack. I gave four stars only because the bed was SO uncomfortable with 100% polyester sheets. I feel like this could be easily remedied and worth the money for guests to give good reviews. We woke MANY times because it was SO hot and we would wake up sweaty and sticky even with the AC on. Otherwise, the condo was great and if the sheets are changed we would stay again!

Great place!

by Lisa on 05/09/2019
Everything we expected was there. No surprises and well managed.


by Mason on 05/09/2019
We absolutely loved everything about this condo! The hosts thought of everything! The condo was extremely clean and well stocked with all the necessities and more. The location is fantastic, just a very short walk to Kona town, the entire complex is very clean and quiet as well as family friendly. The designated parking is in a secure garage and very close to the unit. All the residents that we encountered were very friendly and welcoming. We really can't say enough about how impressed we were with the whole experience. We will definitely be back!


by Sukhvinder on 05/09/2019
We enjoyed our stay.

A view beyond compare

by Joanne on 05/09/2019
The ocean/village view from this condo were amazing. The sunsets spectacular. We really enjoyed our stay. The unit is a bit dated and could use a bit of work. However it was clean and had a good layout. The complex it is in is older but seemed well maintained. The swimming pool was a great end to a busy day. We will stay here again on our next trip

Great location!

by Colleen on 05/09/2019
Just finished our stay at #102 - overall the location was excellent and didn’t realize how close one of the best snorkeling beaches was (across the street!). Spacious and clean - only suggestion would be to have a few more beach items such as chairs or mats available. Everything exceeded our expectation and the family enjoyed our holiday!

We will be back and will use KCV everytime

by Jocelyn on 05/08/2019
The condo we rented had all the amenities we wanted plus more like a blender, beach equipment and many other items. It felt like a home away from home. I loved how there were also the basics to get you started like soap, garbage bags, paper towels. We arrived late and it was great to be able to get up and have everything we needed to start our first day. Kona Coast Vacations is easy to book without the island is amazing.

We will be back

by Joan on 05/08/2019
My husband and I stayed at Awamoa Place on the Big Island, Hawaii, for 9 days. Prior to our vacation, we received helpful emails with suggestions about everything from packing to dining to activities. Much appreciated! Awamoa Place itself was ideally located near fantastic beaches, road trips in multiple directions and quiet sanctuary — a tropical home away from home, where the sun shines (even when cloudy farther south and north) and breezes keep humidity at bay. It was the perfect place to leave the TV and radio off and just be. Our (temporary) home has two lanais: the first says, welcome. Have a seat and rest here in the shade. Listen to the splash of the fountain in the koi pond. The side lanai (between the dining room and master) is your outdoor living room, fragrant and fresh. The back yard welcomes stargazing - so many stars! Inside is comfortable and tasteful, with up-to-date decor. The owners thoughtfully stocked the kitchen for cooking and dining. There’s a ton of counter space if you have ambitious meals in mind. And when all your daytime adventures are done, and you’ve showered (large walk-in shower) and crawled into bed, rest assured, you’ll fall asleep in comfort. We will be back.


by Marybeth on 05/08/2019
Such a perfect location on the water. You can lay in bed and see and hear the ocean. The kitchen was wee equipped and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again.

This condo was perfect for our trip!

by Mary on 05/08/2019
This condo was perfect for our trip. Great view and nicely appointed with all the comforts of home. Kona Coast was quick to send someone out when we reported a slow draining shower. Both beds were super comfy. It was great that the condo had beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards and snorkels and fins for our use. While we spent most of our days exploring the beaches we did enjoy a relaxing dip in the pool. We would def stay here again.


by Michael on 05/07/2019
Wonderful residence and location. 3rd time staying at Kona Coast and we will be back.

Wonderful stay

by Kit on 05/07/2019
We had a wonderful stay at Surf and Racquet # 52. It was an amazing Condo Home that was super plus and super clean and well equipped with everything needed. Very well and centrally located in Kona and was close to getting everywhere we wanted to go. Perfect for a couple or family also ~! JUST DO IT ~!

A very nice unit in a great complex

Would stay there again. Managed by Kona Coast Vacations which is a positive for us.

Another incredible stay

by Elizabeth on 05/07/2019
We had another incredible stay and experience in Casa De Emdeko - unit 335! The unit was spacious and well equipped with wonderful breakfasts on the lanai. The kitchen is especially well equipped as is the beach gear. Thank you!

The house had everything you needed and was just beautiful

by Michael on 05/07/2019
The views were great, and the hot tub was a big plus. While it is not walking distance to the beach, it is in a good location. We found we had to drive 20 to 30 minutes to get to the very good beaches further north.

highly recommend this condo

by Anne on 05/07/2019
We had a great visit to the Big Island and #303 Country Club Villas played a large part in that. The condo is beautifully furnished and very well supplied. We instantly felt very comfortable there. Dishes, small appliances, cooler, thermal bags, and beach chairs/umbrella are all there. The golf course/ocean view is wonderful and the covered lanai is a very relaxing spot to start your day and wind down after a day of exploring the island. Although there was only my husband and me on this trip, it is evident that more people could be comfortable in the space with two additional beds and another full bath and half bath besides the master. The loft area has a great view and would be a good place to sit and read, play cards or board games, etc. We used two of the pools in the development (one is very close to the unit) and both were very clean. There were only a couple of minor things to keep me from rating this 5 star. The water in the master shower takes a very long time to become warm (but that is a small thing). We initially had an issue with the tv and the remotes. When we arrived and followed the directions for the tv, we couldn't get a signal. We called Kona Coast Vacations and they sent someone over in less than half an hour. He was able to determine how to get the tv signal and explain the remotes to us. He also informed us that there was no cable on the tvs in the other rooms which was a bit disappointing as we like to watch the news in bed. Again, a little thing for us. For someone wanting to watch Netflix or the other service offered on those tvs, it would be fine. All in all, we would highly recommend this condo. We liked it so much that we have already booked it for next year!

Kona Reef will always be our first choice!!!

by Shelly on 05/07/2019
Kona Coast Vacations was a breeze to work with very friendly & very helpful. We had a couple minor mishaps and they were right there to take care of it! This was the second time staying at Kona Reef, but first time staying in A6 loved this unit just steps from the ocean and right around the corner from the pool area. We also love the short walk to town.

so impressed with the whole experience

by Marcia on 05/07/2019
Wow, We were so impressed with the whole experience. The Townhouse was lovely, very well appointed and up to date. I want to give a special shout out to David who helped organize our helicopter tour. You made every detail so easy and we are so grateful.

310 is clean, spacious, and quiet

by Tom on 05/07/2019
The kitchen is well stocked and has a wine cooler and new appliances. This unit is also equipped with everything you may need for the beach. They also have a fresh and salt water pool. Around dinner time, many people gather to barbeque, or share a cocktail, and watch the sun set. This is defiantly the number 1 place I have stayed on the big island and cannot recommend it more highly.

Great stay at this location

by Laura on 05/07/2019
Accommodations were spotless and well-stocked. We took full advantage of the beach supplies that were in the unit. Very quiet surroundings. Pool area was fabulous- with options in full sun and shade. Location was very close/central to the different activities and dining that we participated in. Would recommend this vacation location.

Perfect Location

by Yanchen on 05/07/2019
20 minutes from Kona airport, 10 minutes from farmer market. The complex is very nice and well maintained. The unit 136 is just steps away from beach and the balcony just facing complex patio. I was told we can see dolphin in the morning. And my kids found couple soft shell crab's shells on the rocks. Comfort and Convenient Amenities: The condo is lovely. Super clean with comfortable beds. New mattress and refrigerator. Ice pack and cooler to pack your picnic lunch. Sand toys, bodyboard and life jacket for kids to enjoy beach. To my surprise, there is a rice cooker! Helpful property manager: not only timely communicate the booking and check in/out instruction, but also provide concierge service. We arrived two hours earlier before check in time, they were very happy to offer luggage storage service. Once they found out the condo is done with cleaning, they let us check in earlier. Overall we were extremely happy! I would recommend it highly.

We had a great stay in the condo in Kona

by Keith on 05/07/2019
The location was ideal for the beach visits and snorkeling trips. The condo had all the amenities and the complex has two pools that we used every day . The unit is nice and quiet as the only sounds were the waves crashing on the shore even though we were on the main road in Kona . We had unit 314 which had a nice sea view and it was picturesque to sit on the lanai and watch the sunset . There were few issues that could have made our stay more enjoyable One was the fact that the unit below us had a faulty air conditioner and when it was running it shook the whole condo We called the site manager and he managed to get the occupants to turn it down but it was still annoying as it rattled the dishes and floors. Second was the flooring in the kitchen which has a 1 inch lip in the tile which could cause someone to trip Last was the carpet in the living area is old and smells and in our view not necessary as the tile is in good shape. Overall we did enjoy our stay and dealing with Kona Coast Vacations was very helpful.
Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important feedback.
Please be assured that your concerns have been shared with our property owner & management team to be addressed.  We appreciate you taking the time to share them with us.   On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help!
We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.


Casa de Emdeko resort was ideal for us

by Richard Gordon on 05/07/2019
This was the best trip to Hawaii of many we have made over the years. Arrangements made through Kona Coast vacations have always been completely trouble free.

We had a wonderful stay!

by Kai on 05/07/2019
The place was spacious, well furnished with all the kitchen amenities and lots of towels. It even has a beach umbrella and mats for us to use. We got excellent instructions to the place,. We got in late and there wasn't enough parking inside the gated premise but we found ample parking just outside the gate.

Stayed for the third time

by Daniel on 05/07/2019
Stayed for the third time in as many years at a Kona property which was arranged through Kona Coast Vacations. As we have come see, everything was handled clearly and efficiently. After our reservation was made, we added some nights to our trip based on better flight fares and they accommodated us nicely. Our pre-arrival instructions, Concierge service for activities, and check-in all were handled in a friendly and professional and manner. The unit was spotlessly clean at check-in (with automatic door code sent for entry, so you don t need to worry about getting or keeping keys with you), the bath towels, beach towels, and linens were soft and smelled fresh, and kitchen had all we needed to prep and cook any meals we wanted (all breakfasts, most lunches, some dinners). The people at Kona Coast Vacations are a pleasure to work with and they have taken great care to pay attention to details in this property they manage so our vacation was the pure relaxation we hoped it would be. Will definitely use Kona Coast again. Thank you!

Amazing homeymoon

by Amber on 05/07/2019
We had such an amazing homeymoon at the condo we rented through Kona Coast Vacations. They were a great company to deal with. Everything was well organized and explained prior to our arrival. They called on the day we arrived to make sure we were satisfied with everything.

Beautiful house

by Laura on 05/07/2019
This is a beautiful house in a quiet neighborhood a few minutes walk from Keauhou Bay. The house easily accommodates a large group and provides enough quiet space so you're not tripping over each other. I would gladly stay here again and rent through Kona Coast Vacations.

Perfect for our stay on the Kona Coast

by Elaine on 05/07/2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mauna Lani Fairways. The property was well equipped for most anything you would want or need to explore the area, enjoy the beaches and relax in this townhouse.

Tolle Wohnung mit viel Charme

by Raphaela Tamara on 05/07/2019
Wir verbrachten fünf Tage in dieser Wohnung. Sie ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und sie verfügt über alles, was man im Urlaub braucht: super ausgestattete Küche (inkl. Abwaschmaschine), sehr bequemes Bett, sehr grosses Badezimmer, Waschmaschine inkl. Tumbler, sehr schnelles Wifi, Utensilien für an den Strand. Wir würden sofort wieder kommen!!!! Vielen Dank für die Gastfreundschaft

It was a very pleasant experience. We loved staying at the house and would recommend it to friends

by Michael on 05/07/2019
From the well maintained grounds to the house itself, we enjoyed the attention to detail that made our days and nights enjoyable. We loved the fact that the pictures from the web were true to what you got. It was also very clean upon our arrival. The furniture was beautiful and very comfortable (including beds, sofa bed and bedding) - no weathered or worn fabrics. There were also plenty of towels. To quote one of us: "Pull-out sofa bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept on and very bed-like." The kitchen was well stocked and conducive to cooking in. Many different types of glassware, cookware, dishes, spices, cleaning supplies, and ancillary items. The layout of the house (both indoors and outdoors) tempted us to just lounge around and enjoy the environment. A small sandy beach and tidal pools just in front were especially fun to explore, with a handy access gate directly from the house. The ocean beyond provided the constant soothing sounds of the waves. One other highlight was the nightly viewing of the beautiful sunsets from the well positioned lanai. It was a wonderful stay and a home we wouldn’t hesitate to rent again. Definitely a home to recommend. Suggestions: * A full-size ironing board would save time and aggravation (in trying to use the table-top board). * While there were several high-quality smaller skillets in the kitchen, we didn't seem to find a larger one (e.g. 12" diameter).
Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important positive feedback.   
We have updated the skillets & the home now has a full size ironing board.   On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help!
 We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.


by Matt on 05/04/2019
Clean and comfortable. No complaints.

Hia Place, the one with the view

by Paula on 05/04/2019
magnificent views, from morning to dusk. It was very peaceful although with two teens maybe too much for them as we had to take the car for everything. The rooms were great each with option of air conditioner and fans. The gardens were lush with amazing birds and early fun visits from the chickens. Great for a couple of families or extended families

Fairway Villas C22---An excellent unit in a great location

by Ron on 05/04/2019
The unit is a generous size, well laid out, well equipped, and very well located within the property. Pool and exercise room and gate are all close. Walking distance to Kings and Queens shops. Short drive or easy walk to A'bay beach. Hapuna beach, Spenser's beach, Kona, and the airport are all less than 30 minutes drive from the unit. Easy access to Waikoloa Village and Saddle road to Hilo is an added benefit for this location. We really appreciated the beach equipment at the unit, including the cooler bag, the two umbrellas and the good quality beach chairs. The master bed was quite comfortable, the ceiling fans and A/C worked well. The reverse osmosis water supply and garburator were great additions to the kitchen. The kettle leaks and needs to be replaced. We would definitely look to stay in this unit on future vacations to Kona

Gorgeous home overlooking ocean

by Kara on 05/04/2019
We loved our stay at this beautiful house. The rooms were spacious, the house was immaculate, and all the furnishings were comfortable. Air conditioning was available, but we only used it for an hour once or twice during our week-long stay - the breezes through the many windows kept the house very comfortable. We were three adults and two kids (ages 8 and 11), and everyone had plenty of space and comfy beds. The master suite (with its own entry to the lanai) was wonderful! The kitchen was stocked with tons of supplies, and of course we spent most of our time on the lanai enjoying the pool and the views. The only thing we would improve would be the outdoor grill - it needs replacing. Everything else was definitely 5+ stars, and I'd love to book here again on our returning trips to Kona. The folks at KonaCoast Vacations provided a concierge service and checked in on us to make sure we were enjoying the house during our stay. Many thanks to KonaCoast and to the home owners for making this beautiful property available for vacation renters.

Beyond Expectations

by Paul on 05/04/2019
This property was truly amazing! The house is much larger than it appears in the photos and our family of four had more than enough room to relax and spread out (we only used 3 of the 4 bedrooms). The outdoor deck and pool area is such a great focal point, with amazing views of the ocean and some breathtaking sunsets, not to mention the outdoor bb. The house itself is located in a nice quiet neighbourhood, about 5-10 minute drive to shopping, groceries etc. This place totally exceeded our expectations, our only complaint being that we couldn't stay longer.

Nice place as advertised

by Thomas on 05/04/2019
I thought the place was quite nice. It had a small garage, which was helpful to keep the car out of the sun, and we didn't need to search for the hard to come bye unassigned parking spots. The place was as advertised, included a washer and dryer, which we only used to wash beach towels. Overall, a nice place to stay, though a bit remote.

perfect! Best VRBO we have ever stayed at

by Amber on 05/04/2019
Everything was perfect the whole complex was very clean beautiful and quiet, security guards watched the beach area and parking felt very secure, pool was great very cute bbq area! The condo was perfect very clean had everything we needed lots of toys and beach chairs and umbrella and cooler, even supplied us with plenty of dish soap, Landry soap and bath soap, beds were very comfortable and plenty of linens , kitchen fully stocked with everything you could need! We stayed a full 2 weeks and really felt like home, all of the residents who live in complex were so friendly and full of advise on where to eat , snorkel, and site see, close enough to town to walk for shopping and dinner, grocery just a short drive, next time we visit kona we will stay here again!❤️

Beautiful House in a beautiful location

by Judy on 05/04/2019
This was a great house for the five of us. Overlooking the water, waves crashing. Everything we needed was supplied except for a broken shower handle which was scheduled to be fixed two days after we moved in but never was. Other than that we enjoyed it very much.

Amazing Home on a beautiful Island

by Jill on 05/04/2019
The house was so nice, very clean with an amazing view and awesome pool which was very warm! My boys never wanted to leave the house. It was very clean and had everything you needed, it was like our home away from home! Its very private yet just a short drive to all the tourist attractions/beaches just below. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us, its everything we expected and more!

Great location

by Linda on 05/04/2019
We have been coming to Waikoloa resort for 20 years now - Hali'i Kai is one of the better properties we have stayed at. The Ocean Club is unique and the food is excellent. We most enjoyed the amenities that were included - it was so nice not to have to purchase spices and oils, etc to equip the kitchen for our meal preparations. The quality of pots & pans were excellent and sharp knives were a new experience. For us, we would have preferred a table on the patio so meals could be eaten outside - we did, however, enjoy sitting in the evenings and watching the sunsets. Also, the beach equipment was appreciated as well as the zero gravity chairs. We had a great time.

Very nice property, clean, comfortable, well stocked and with nice view

by Anelise on 05/04/2019
We had an amazing stay at the property. The place was clean, the beds were very comfortable and we specially enjoyed the view from our lanai. The grounds were very well kept and the pool was great for the kids. I highly recommend this place!

Nice view spacious!

by Donald on 05/04/2019
Very roomy and lovely view. Close to store, golf course and 3 restaurants within a few minutes. Exception was not being able to use the lanai as the exterior patio door is not fitting close and mice are getting in, to the inside of the condo also. We were taken care of by the resort who sent maintenance persons out to set traps, however they didn’t catch the 2 mice we saw in the suite. We were able to shoo one out, and unfortunately destroy another 5 days later. Don’t get me wrong it’s s lovely stay otherwise, it’s ground floor so I imagine it’s part of life in Big Island. The condo was very clean & Kona Coast Resort were very accommodating and efficient in helping us. Mahalo!

Loved the accommodations!

by Dana on 05/04/2019
Thank you for allowing us to use your condo with a great view of the ocean and golf course!

Great Kona Condo

by John on 05/04/2019
We enjoyed the Location and the Condo. It has all the things you would want for a short or long stay. The beach stuff was very useful so we didn't have to buy anything extra. The furnishings are all new and comfortable and the art is very tasteful. Lot's of Kitchen appliances as well as pot's and pans. Spices and lots of extra's for every day use. The Condo was very Clean with lot's of Towels and Bedding.

Fantastic Location

by Connor on 05/04/2019
This location couldn't be better for our vacation - closest beach for surf and snorkeling. Groceries and restaurants a quick drive, and easy to access the highway. Clean and accommodating rental that we are already planning to return to.

Condo stay

by Patrick on 05/04/2019
We typically do not review places we stay as we would rather speak directly with the owners if there are any good or bad things to say. Our stay was longer than usual (10 nights) so we decided to post a review. The condo was clean, great to work with for our family (2 adults and 1 2-year old) and everything worked well for us. The parking was supposed to be reserved but we were told to park wherever was available and it seemed to work fine for all. We certainly enjoyed the view, even though Ali'i Drive is very busy at times, and our time spent inside when it decided to rain. The lanai was awesome and great for our two-year old as well. We certainly would stay here again.

Fantastic experience

by Gregory on 05/04/2019
The amenities were fabulous. We loved having drinks on the Lanai while watching the sunset over the ocean. Waking up and drinking coffee on the Lanai while planning our day was quite enjoyable as well. Love this place!

Beautiful home, beautiful location

by Rebecca on 05/04/2019
The home was perfect, had everything my family of four needed. The beach was close, not too crowded, and great snorkeling for the family. Also loved the pool. We will be back!

Kona Reef Great as Usual

by Frederick on 05/04/2019
We have stayed several times in various units at Kona Reef. Always good. This time it was 11 nights in A-6, which is a great 1 bedroom unit right on the water. We will be back!

Beautiful clean rental right across from a beach park

by Dorothy on 05/04/2019
We loved our stay. The condo was clean and just across from the Kahalu’u Beach Park. Lovely!

Perfect place for the race

by Michael on 05/04/2019
House is wonderfully located, perfectly positioned for enjoying the afternoon breezes, and relaxing in the shade. The beds are comfortable, amenities most welcomed, and the entire experience was quite comfortable and welcoming. Thanks so much!

Great location

by Kevin on 05/04/2019
Could use some improved/more kitchen equipment (plates, sharp knives, etc). Great location on the property.

Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important positive feedback.  

We will be updating the kitchen items based on your feedback.  On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help!

 We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again

wonderful vacation place

by Lola on 05/04/2019
We had an amazing time. The condo was perfect, it had everything we needed, the bed was very comfortable, the view was great, the complex is very quiet and everyone is very friendly. We hope to return next year.

Wonderful Family Vacation

by Ingrid on 05/04/2019
Beautiful house, spectacular setting, great lagoon for young children. Must be one of the best spots on the Big Island. Well maintained, very neat and clean, lots of beach accessories. The deck view was breathtaking. We could not have asked for more. David at Kona Coast Vacations was most helpful with recommendations for activities and restaurants.

Wonderful Unit

by Shelly on 05/04/2019
This was the second time staying at Kona Reef, but first time staying in A6 loved this unit just steps from the ocean and right around the corner from the pool area.

by Janet on 05/04/2019
Nice place. Close to all amenities. Beach access and a lovely saltwater pool on the premises.

Great condo!

by Margaret on 05/04/2019
Nice location and loved that the condo supplied beach items to use. I recommend staying here!

Beautiful, elegant, and restorative!

by Launette on 05/04/2019
Thank you for a lovely oasis!

5 Stars!!!

by Dwight on 05/03/2019
Great stay! The condo was clean and made to feel like our home away from home. Very comfortable and the location was excellent. The property is very well maintained. We will definitely look to you again when planning our next vacation to the Big Island. Thanks again, Will & DBT Seattle, WA

Such a treat!

by Darcy K on 05/01/2019
Aloha. Our vacation home "Keauhou Estates Serenity 10" was such a treat! Everything that we could possibly need was provided. The View was even more impressive in person, centrally located, we were just minutes from shopping, restaurants & more. We enjoyed several activities the island had to offer such as; snorkeling, boogie boards, parasailing, visiting the volcano, mopeds & purchasing fresh fruit + coffee/tour. We are all looking forward to our next visit staying in the same home. Mahalo

Great house with an amazing view

by Lori on 05/01/2019
We had 2 families stay at this amazing house. The pool was awesome for the kids and the view was fantastic. The only down side would be traffic noise but it wasn't that bad. We would stay there again for sure.

Fantastic week at Hia Place!

by Omer on 05/01/2019
The house is absolutely beautiful, magnificent grounds and so well kept. The staff at Kona Coast Vacation, especially David our concierge, were super attentive and helpful with every detail. There isn’t a thing we would change about our week at Hia Place and hope to return very soon! Mahalo!

Great accomodations

by Matt on 05/01/2019
We stayed at the "Heavens" recently. Great accommodations. sleeps up to 10. Easy access from airport, harbor, and Costco. Walmart, Safeway, and shopping within 15 minute drive. open floor plan, There were two families, and plenty of room, with pool, hot tub, and great view.


by Michelle on 05/01/2019
Could not have had a better view from our vacation rental than the one that we had. Right on the ocean. Absolutely perfect. Location was great. Having the washer and dryer in the unit was perfect. Used it basically every day. I would certainly rent the unit again

Beautiful & serene

by Susy on 05/01/2019
Golf Villas J23. We flew to the Big Island in January for a much needed respite from cold weather and life stress. Dean & Claire's beautiful, quiet, serene villa was just the antidote for our winter blues. It's quietly luxurious, beautifully decorated with a just a hint of surf lore and hula culture, and my favorite spot was the lanai with a view of palm trees, green grass, and a lava flow. One night we had a barbecue and savored the sunset. The birds were singing and trade winds gently flowing. The master bedroom feels like a retreat with the gorgeous tub and shower. We also used the pool (a short walk) and visited the private beach several times (a short drive). Highly recommended for a retreat from the rat race!

Would stay again in a heartbeat!

by Yanchen on 04/30/2019
Perfect Location: 20 minutes from Kona airport, 10 minutes from farmer market. The complex is very nice and well maintained. The unit 136 is just steps away from beach and the balcony just facing complex patio. I was told we can see dolphin in the morning.

Allow me to rave about Hale Pohaku #3

by Karen on 04/30/2019
It’s location directly next to the ocean is incredible! Hearing the waves crashing all day and night is exhilarating, and relaxing at the same time! The numerous screened windows with the shutters allow for pleasant cross breezes. We appreciated the attractive artwork throughout. The decor is elegant, echoing Polynesia in multiple tasteful furnishings, without the “Hilo Hattie” cliches. The bright white paint contrasts with the hardwoods for a contemporary look. The galley kitchen, very thoughtfully well-stocked, is a joy to work in, especially with that fantastic view. Enjoyed morning exercise swims—in what felt like our own, private, and very pristine pool. After exploring the island (the location is most convenient) we always looked forward to our daily return to Hale Pohaku #3 and it’s glorious ocean and cross breezes.

Terrific for a vacationing couple!

by Megan on 04/29/2019
Quick responsive customer service that is pleasant and helpful. Wonderful location of unit and well appointed and very clean. Great pool, view, beach access and parking. This is one of my favorite units.

This is a beautiful place and it looks exactly like the photos!

by Nari on 04/29/2019
Tastefully furnished and has all the little things you might need day-to-day. It is a little bit out of the village so you will need to hire a car but that is the same everywhere on the island. Recommend.

Family Trip

by Osman on 04/29/2019
Nice location, On the water. Enjoyed breakfast on the balcony before starting the day.


by Larry on 04/29/2019
It was just what I was looking for. Needs a little maintenance done for the sticking toilet handle and shower drain. Loved the grill and bar across the street.

Kona Stay for 2 Couples

by William on 04/29/2019
We loved our stay! The house was in perfect order and well maintained. Even the light switches are labeled. The pool is gorgeous. Beautiful home and would highly recommend.

Great location

by Deanne on 04/29/2019
The condo is lovely and well appointed. My only recommendations for improvement are: 1. Need at least a few firm pillows, they're all very, very flat and soft 2. Update the listing to show you have beach chairs, boogie boards and sun umbrella 🙂

Kona Vacation

by Richard on 04/29/2019
Great condo in a great location. Sunsets every night. I would definitely stay here again.

Super convenient downtown Kona location, clean and neat unit, right on water

by Sean on 04/29/2019
Unit is clean and tidy, a 5 minute walk from downtown Kona, yet right on the water with great ocean view. There aren't many condos this close to the town that are also right on the ocean, and have a pool (next to the ocean). Pay washer and drier on every floor is convenient. A/C works well in unit to manage temperature, or open sliding doors to porch and sea. I would definitely stay here again.

Waves to sleep by

by Janet on 04/29/2019
Thank you for providing such a lovely place of calm and relaxation. The sound of the waves was wonderful and I slept like a baby!

I definitely plan on returning & that says ALOT!

by Jennifer on 04/28/2019
The unit is spectacular. The layout is perfect, the view and the balcony spacious, the decor is modern and comfortable. The location is prime for all of Kona. The concierge service provides connected us with a great dolphin snorkel tour operator & the property management was great at communicating important updates. They even called to see if I needed anything after checking in. When I told them the refrigerator filter was flashing that it needed replacing, they fixed it at our convenience. The beach gear was very useful. I definitely plan on returning & that says ALOT! Mahalo for a Memorable stay!

Amazing property in a quiet neighborhood!

by Casey And Susan on 04/28/2019
The house had everything we needed to cook some of our meals. Check in/out process was simple. There were more than enough towels for every one. The BBQ was handy and the pool was great to cool off in. We stayed with 4 adults and 1 toddler. The house exceeded our expectations and we would definitely stay again.

Great location!

by April and Chris on 04/28/2019
Magic Sands beach across the street was our family's favorite beach to sit at dur in ng our trip. Condo is spacious, and has all of the amenities of home that anyone could need. Pool was amazing too.

You won't be disappointed here folks, everything you see in the pictures are exactly as it was upon arrival.

by Jessie on 04/28/2019
It was truly a home away from home and we felt so comfortable and welcome. You have everything you need, all you need to do is hit the grocery store. Privacy, cleanliness, quietness, beauty and view...we had it all! Would definitely recommend and definitely return.

Wonderful place, beautifully decorated and clean. Thank you, we very much enjoyed our stay here!

by Lindsey on 04/28/2019
This 2 bedroom condo unit is a fantastic find! Sparkling clean, beautifully decorated, and plenty of space to spread out. Lanai out back overlooks pond, and is a great spot to sit and relax. Easy self check in and great communication. Enjoy!!

Wonderful place, beautifully decorated and clean. Thank you, we very much enjoyed our stay here!

This 2 bedroom condo unit is a fantastic find! Sparkling clean, beautifully decorated, and plenty of space to spread out. Lanai out back overlooks pond, and is a great spot to sit and relax. Easy self check in and great communication. Enjoy!!

Highly recommend for family with kids.

by Luna on 04/28/2019
Convenient location, easy check-in process, fast communication with host, clean and bug-free rooms and nice extra amenities such as local guides, kids games made our stay very much relaxed and enjoyable, would highly recommend to any family traveling with kids. Kids also enjoyed the swimming pool when our youngest had a scratched knee that prevented him to enjoy the beach.

Really reccommend this apartment!

by Bene on 04/28/2019
Everything was like described and the Pictures are what you get. I realy recommend this Apartment. It has everything available what you need for a great stay.communication was great ! It is a smokefree Village. But thats More a Hawaiian Thing then from the Village. There is a smokespot at the parking place. Thanks for the great time at your Apartment. We enjoyed it so much !

Location was perfect....spent evenings watching sunset!

by Molly on 04/28/2019
Condo is located a little over a mile from downtown Kona. Which was perfect for our needs to be close to restaurants but not too close that you dealt with traffic. The condo was an end unit in the bottom floor and we spent so much time enjoying the sunsets.

Great view, amazing pool.

by Tony on 04/28/2019
Great view, amazing pool.

Waterfront sunsets every night were amazing!

by Jeffrey on 04/28/2019
We really enjoyed the location of this apartment and how well equipped it was. The condo had a great selection of kitchen gear which we found to be very useful. The views are amazing! Thanks very much!

Beautiful sunsets!

by Kim on 04/28/2019
Very nicely remodeled condo Beautiful sunsets !

We stayed in condo 101A at Waikoloa Fairways in Waikoloa Village. This was the most spacious rental we have had in our stays on the Big Island. Each of the two bedrooms has sizable bathrooms, and because of the location of the living room between the bedrooms, it felt like we had two independent suites at times. Located on the ground level, the condo has a patio with a large, expansive feel. The view of the ocean and the beauty of the flowers and golf course made sitting outside a calming experience. We also enjoyed the many wild birds around the condo--francolins, nenes, safron finches, turkeys included. The condo was attractive, utterly clean, and well-appointed. The parking space for the condo is conveniently close by--a mere minute away. Shopping for groceries was a breeze, with KTA a couple minutes drive close by. In short: an attractive, spacious condo in a great location. Thanks Kona Coast Vacations!


by Karen on 04/26/2019
Property is located in a beautiful setting on Kona. Boutique, private complex with stunning views and sounds of ocean waves crashing against shore. Unit 203 was outfitted with several amenities including a coffee grinder and a blender ! This place is a slice of Hawaiian heaven, welcoming onsite property manager and “ohana” spirit shown from Kona Coast staff as well. We’ll be back to Big Island soon!

Liked the Location

by Linda on 04/26/2019
We found our accommodations at unit L32 to be excellent and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience at Fairway Villas Waikoloa. The condo was very clean and well appointed with everything we needed for our stay. We also liked the location with a view of the pool (we could see how busy it was before we came downstairs) and golf course.

12 Day Family Vaca

by Darcy K on 04/25/2019
Aloha. This home was not only nice but provided everything we could need. The View was even more stunning in person, centrally located, making it easy to venture out for dining and activities. We enjoyed snorkeling, parasailing, hiking, visiting the volcano and playing some of the board games our home provided. We all had a wonderful time and am looking forward to our next stay. Mahalo

All the comforts of home

by Edward on 04/25/2019
Place was amazing. So clean and well kept. Had everything we needed. This is the place to stay on the Big Island.

Beautiful home and great location!

by Alexandra on 04/25/2019
This was my second time staying at this house, but this time I shared it with my family for a place to stay a week before my brother’s wedding. The layout is great for a family, with plenty of rooms, places to do your own thing, an expansive lanai with a great view, and room for cooking and grilling. The pool is big, and was a hit. The location is also ideal for getting to the highway, heading north or south, and also very close to Alii Drive! I highly recommend this place!

Wonderful Property

by Nancy on 04/25/2019
This was our third stay at GMH, and it was just as beautiful as we remembered. The owner added some new deck furniture, and some beautiful new hardwood doors which increased privacy. The Volcano was quiet (may it always stay that way!),so vog was not an issue. The weather was so nice there was no need for the AC, but it was good to know it's there. We kept ourselves in shape by walking around beautiful (hilly) Keauhou Estates; this was best accomplished early in the morning or around sunset. Overall, this wonderful property lived up to all of our expectations; we'll be back

Beautiful Location

by Patricia on 04/24/2019
We have used Kona Coast Vacations twice and love staying at Sea Village. Beautiful location and amenities. Well maintained and comfortable. Great value! Mahalo ❣️

Another year in paradise

by Julie on 04/24/2019
Such a beautiful place.

Nice view, loved the lanai and the pool but the house is very dated

by John on 04/24/2019
The view from the house was AWESOME! the house does not show all that well, it’s dated and needs to be update for sure. The road below the master bedroom has heavy traffic and is loud all day and night. The shower knob broke 2 times in the master bathroom and the kitchen is just ok compared to the other houses in the gated community, this house is just ok

Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important feedback.

Please be assured that your concerns have been shared with our management team and the property owner.  We appreciate you taking the time to share them with us.   On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help!

We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.

Highly Recommend

by Daniel on 04/24/2019
we loved our stay with Kona Coast.... and highly recommend using the provided concierge he really made our trip memorable with recommendations and booking our activities.... absolutely made our trip epic.... thanks again Kona Coast Spacious rooms · Thoughtful amenities

A great experience!

by Lauren on 04/24/2019
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!

Highly recommend!

by Tyler on 04/24/2019
705 Alii Drive is a fantastic condo- its an ideal location to explore Kona- close to so many fantastic restaurants. The condo is very nice for two couples- AC works great- front patio provides gorgeous views- I highly recommend!


by Gerald on 04/24/2019
We had a great stay at condo 109 in white sands village in kona. We found our unit to be very clean, well maintained and equipped. The grounds , pool and barbecue area were also impeccably clean and maintained. We loved the extras that were there ie boogie boards, beach cooler, etc. The only thing missing were beach chairs. We would definitely stay there again.


by John on 04/24/2019
We had a wonderful stay, it was extremely spacious and a great location. Thank you!!

Our Ohana had a fabulous vacation

by Gregory on 04/24/2019
Our ohana had a fabulous vacation at Country Club Villas 302. The location was perfect. The Lanai, pool, and entire home was even better than expected. I would strongly recommend this unit for any family wanting to vacation in Kona. Thoughtful amenities

This really should not be missed

by Cecilia on 04/24/2019
We had a fabulous stay at Helemano. The house is perfectly located between two family friendly beaches that are walking distance. The pool and watching the crashing surf were our favorite activities. The house sleeps ten as promised but there are no single beds. This created a little struggle when assigning rooms as two teen aged brothers do not want to sleep together. Luckily we found an aero bed which worked out nicely. Our favorite tour was the manta Ray night Snorkel. This really should not be missed. We didn't see any the first night but they let you try again and the second night was successful. The Kona Coast concierge will set this up for you. This really was a great vacation and we can't wait to do it again.

This was a very beautiful place to stay!

by Miranda on 04/23/2019
We watched the waves and the sun set from the very large balcony. The bedroom also looks out to the water, so we could hear the waves all night. It had everything we needed and then some. The bed was comfy. The internet was good. It felt very private when in the unit. We really enjoyed our stay. It's very short drive to the center of Kailua with lots of shops and restaurants, but not much is with in walking distance.

Had a wondeful time at your condo and we hope to come back any time!

by Pascal on 04/23/2019
Great Condo, like 2min away by foot from Kona Center with all the restaurants and shops. Very clean and stylish, it's a very new condo, AC & vents in all rooms, super lanai, would definitely come again!

Would definitely recommend! 5 STARS!!!!! & 2 THUMBS UP!!

by Michael on 04/23/2019
We stayed for 8 days at Kona Pacific Condos in unit A-206. It's located right off of Ali'i Drive on Walua Road so you can walk to everything in Kona! And our unit was right beside the pool and lanai so we could grill and chill with our family! The condo was clean and stocked with everything we needed for the beach and for just relaxing when we wanted to.


by Kamil on 04/23/2019
Very nice place with direct sea view. A bit pricey but worth it

Perfectly located, gorgeous sunsets!

by Jake on 04/23/2019
Place was perfectly located, with gorgeous views of the sunset and food and beaches just a quick walk. The decor was tropical and the fans worked great to keep the place cool.

Amazing location. Quiet and out of the way.!

by Yaniv on 04/23/2019
No crowds to have to deal with. Large patio that is perfect for relaxing and bbq. Maintenance was super fast when needed.

Highly recommended, but there is street noise at times.

by Jerry on 04/23/2019
Kona Coast Vacations was wonderful in their service and a pleasure to deal with. They were very communicative and truly seemed to care that we were happy with the condo and our overall experience. The condo was really nice. Tastefully decorated, comfortable and spacious, the photos represent it very well. Being a couple in our late 50's and somewhat picky, we found the master bed was surprisingly solid and comfortable and provided a great sleep for the 9 nights we were there. The kitchen was furnished really well for a vacation rental - folks wishing to prepare their own meals will be pleased with the tools supplied - though a grill would have been extra special. The view from the deck was beautiful if not spectacular, and we found ourselves spending the mornings and late evenings on the shaded lanai. We visited in April so the heat and bugs that some reviewers experienced were not a problem for us. The condo was well ventilated with its many ceiling fans and windows. Average daytime temps were in the mid/upper 80's and nights were in the lower 70's - and we were quite comfortable. We did not use the portable room air conditioners that are supplied.

 The one negative worth mentioning is the traffic noise. The condo is on the corner of the intersection with the road leading down to Keauhou Bay and the Sheraton Resort. It appeared calm upon arrival but we realized soon enough that the traffic was consistent and at times quite loud. Particularly in the morning with the work trucks. Closing the windows wasn't an option for us. The other thing that bothered us at first had nothing to do with the unit or the service we received. It was the location. This was our first trip to the Big Island and we weren't familiar with the various communities and overall landscape. We had researched the area and were hoping for a location that allowed us to occasionally walk as opposed to hopping in the car to go anywhere or do anything. Yes, we were able to walk to Keauhou Bay and the Sheraton Resort, which provided some activity, but there really isn't any decent cafes or specialty shopping within reasonable walking distance. The local shopping center is over a mile up the hill - but doesn't truly offer anything special other than some basics. We highly recommend Umeckes restaurant, the Captain Cook snorkel excursion and Island Naturals Market or even Safeway in town - as opposed to KTA Market. 
As far as the Big Island itself, with all its beauty and wonder, there aren't many sandy beaches around to lie on. The Kona Coast shoreline is spectacular but unless you are a seasoned ocean swimmer or surfer comfortable among the lava rocks and reefs, be prepared to drive quite a ways to find the nice large sandy beaches. Even more if you want any kind of wave action beyond 1 foot gentleness. This is the major difference with the other islands we'd been to - Oahu, Maui and Kauai. If you are an advanced body boarder, you may want to stick to one of the other islands. Again, WE should have figured this out beforehand. 

 In the end, we drove over 600 miles over 10 days to various beaches, restaurants and snorkeling spots up and down the Kona Coast…and it was worth it. We experienced a ton of the beauty the island has to offer and had a truly fabulous time. Many thanks to Kona Coast Vacations for helping to make it happen - we highly recommend them.

Wonderful access & Beautiful ocean view!

by Yu on 04/23/2019
Easy to get this condo from airport. You will have everything within walking distance. You can enjoy beautiful sunset from balcony, sunrise from lanai upstairs. Everything we need was equipped.Mahalo!

Recomended!!! Nice place!! Loved it

We enjoyed our stay. Everything was perfect! Thank you. 🙂

Beautiful place

by Laura on 04/23/2019
Beautiful place, easy to get to. Accommodated our party of 6 comfortably.

The property is superb

by Laurie on 04/23/2019
My wife and I just returned from our trip to Kona. We were staying in the Golf Villas at Mauna Lani J23. The property is superb, so lush and beautiful and well maintained. We loved the pool facility. The accommodations were fantastic, especially the kitchen and bbq on the lanai. As well all of the extra amenities like beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, games, movies, etc.. were greatly appreciated. The whole trip was top notch. Also, thanks to Kona Coast Vacations. Your company and staff is probably the most efficient, helpful and organized that we've ever dealt with. Thanks also to David our concierge who was always available to answer our questions and provide suggestions about things to do and see. We'll definitely be coming back and recommending your service to friends. Thanks.

Peaceful location

by Cynthia on 04/23/2019
Our condo, 115 at Waikaloa Shores was such a perfect homebase for a Hawaiian vacation! The condo was very clean, spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed coffee and meals on the lanai overlooking the koi pond, walking to great beaches and GORGEOUS sunsets. I would highly recommend this condo for your Big Island vacation!

This is a lovely condo in every way

by Melissa on 04/22/2019
What a wonderful visit we have had. We had everything we needed and more. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed our activities and experiences. Hopefully we will return one day.

Paradise Home

by Jerry on 04/22/2019
We found this to be the best home we have ever rented. We would love to return someday and stay here


by Linda on 04/21/2019
The view was breathtaking ! What a wonderful thing to wake up to and gorgeous sunsets every night! The condo was tastefully decorated and immaculate. Appreciated all the supplies I had to use in the condo. The property was kept up beautifully and staff was very helpful and friendly. Would go back there again and recommend it to anyone !


by Justine on 04/20/2019
Great location, right on the waterfront and a fabulous little coffee house out the front.

Highly Recommended!

by Richel on 04/20/2019
Super spacious with complete amenities including slow cooker, spices, iced tea maker, coffee beans grinder, snorkel gear, beach towels, beach umbrella. This is probably the airbnb with the most complete amenities I've stayed in! Place was super clean. Nice bathrooms. Decors a bit outdated and parking a bit tight, but these are negligible. David, the property manager, was responsive and helpful. They anticipate what their guests needs. Appreciate the binder with the local tips. Highly recommended. Mahalo!

We had a fantastic stay....will definately back!

by Jessica on 04/20/2019
The unit was clean and spacious, and the wrap around lanai was fantastic-perfect place for a cup of coffee, and we definitely took advantage of the outdoor dining and grill. The master bedroom is a good size and loved the master bath. Having an in unit washer and dryer was also key! We were there with our two kids and the unit's proximity to the pool was huge!! We loved that it was walkable to the beach (10 min or so), the Hilton and the Kings and Queens marketplace. When your picky 7-year-old says “you need to give them a 5 star rating” then you know the place is excellent 🙂 If we return to the Big Island we will definitely be back.

It looks exactly like the photos. Super great location!

by Joyce on 04/20/2019
Close to many attractions, plus walking distance to its own beach. Loved to walk there for amazing sunset photos. Hosts also provided beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers etc. They all came in very handy.

A great stay! Thank you very much

by Sohei on 04/20/2019
It is a great place to stay on the island of Hawaii, where you can see the sea in the distance, there is a golf course in front of you, you can spend a quiet and relaxing time. There is also no problem with food, and the pool is right in front of you.

Wonderful condo on the ocean

by Diane on 04/19/2019
Hate to praise this condo and make it any harder to book. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this place. Parking was the only downside sometimes, but there is parking outside the gate. Loved the pools, just wish they stayed open later at night. Will probably be back.

The views and sunsets are breath taking

by Nicole on 04/19/2019
We enjoyed our stay at Kona Heavens House. It was very spacious for the eight of us. The kids enjoyed having a “separate house” to hang out in. It was a centralized location and a short drive to Old Kailua Village and close proximity to Costco and Walmart. The views and sunsets are breath taking. The home does not have air conditioning but there are plenty of ceiling fans and floor fans. The home stayed a comfortable temperature with the windows/sliders open. The outdoor kitchen area is a nice amenity. Our kids enjoyed the pool but it is a bit chilly. It stayed at 67 degrees our entire stay despite the warm outdoor temps. I’m not sure the solar heater was working. The adults stuck to hanging out in the hot tub. The home does come with a resident outdoor cat and rooster. The cat is very friendly and chill. It was fun to read the guest book at all the names the cat has been given. I would recommend this home. It was truly a little slice of Heaven


by Anelise on 04/19/2019
We had an amazing stay at Sea Village. We very much enjoyed the beautiful view from our lanai. We also enjoyed the pool and the condo was spotless with very comfortable beds. Just a very short drive from restaurants and stores.I highly recommend this place! Mahalo for a great stay!


by Brian on 04/19/2019
We had a great time at sea village the condominium we had lots of space the view was spectacular. The grounds around the pool and BBQ area where kept immaculately we will be back.

Beautiful location

by John on 04/19/2019
This condo was very clean, organized and well equipped. There were clear instructions that made for easy arrival and departure. The beautiful beach was right next to us. The view from the balcony was amazing. The sounds of the waves crashing were very soothing. Loved the amazing sunsets viewed from the balcony!!! Would definitely stay here again!!!

The unit was very welcoming

by Ron on 04/18/2019
We had a great time in Kona, and really enjoyed the portion of our stay at Fairway Villas Unit C22. The unit was very welcoming, very well equipped, well situated within the complex and comfortable.

Great ocean front unit

by John D on 04/18/2019
Loved our ground floor ocean front unit. Recently updated, clean and comfortable. Aloha!

Private retreat in Kona

by Lauren on 04/17/2019
My family (spouse & our 3 boys aged 5, 9 & 11) just returned home from a wonderful stay at Aloha Place. It was everything the pictures promised & more! Set in a quiet neighborhood (but not far from necessities like the grocery store, etc) you feel like you are by yourself at a private resort. The house is laid out really well, no space wasted & a really nice flow. We loved eating at the table outside by the pool so much we decided to cook in (or pick up a pizza) the majority of the nights we were there. We all loved the pool, hot tub & my boys especially loved feeding the koi fish in the front entrance. The beds were comfortable & appliances were all great. Plenty of towels & quality linens. It was our best vacation ever & we can’t wait to go back. Also, I have to mention David, from Kona Concierge, who helped us with all of our activities. Without him, the trip would have been much more stressful! He helped us choose the right excursions for our family & each one was absolutely perfect! He was quick to respond every time I asked questions & was really just a fantastic bonus to an already fantastic booking/house. It was a great experience!

Family Vacation

by Kristin on 04/17/2019
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.


by Jacob on 04/17/2019
This home us awesome. This had to be the most relaxing vacation i have been on in a long time. The view from the house was amazing.

Definitely a home to recommend

by Michael on 04/17/2019
Our stay at Kona Estates was a very pleasant experience. From the well maintained grounds to the house itself, we enjoyed the attention to detail that made our days and nights enjoyable. We loved the fact that the pictures from the web were true to what you got. It was also very clean upon our arrival. The furniture was beautiful and very comfortable (including beds, sofa bed and bedding) - no weathered or worn fabrics. There were also plenty of towels. To quote one of us: "Pull-out sofa bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept on and very bed-like." The kitchen was well stocked and conducive to cooking in. Many different types of glassware, cookware, dishes, spices, cleaning supplies, and ancillary items. The layout of the house (both indoors and outdoors) tempted us to just lounge around and enjoy the environment. A small sandy beach and tidal pools just in front were especially fun to explore, with a handy access gate directly from the house. The ocean beyond provided the constant soothing sounds of the waves. One other highlight was the nightly viewing of the beautiful sunsets from the well positioned lanai. It was a wonderful stay and a home we wouldn’t hesitate to rent again

Kona coast

by Caleb on 04/17/2019
Awesome condo,spacious,well equipped our family of 6 were lacking nothing and enjoyed everything about this place. No complaints.

Property was very nice and clean. We enjoyed the pool and beautiful sunsets from the lanai.

by Daniel on 04/17/2019
There are good backpack type beach chairs, umbrellas, and plenty of water sports equipment. This is our second time renting the property and we enjoy it. The only drawback, is the freezer side of the refrigerator does not open all the way.

Perfect sunset view

by Rene on 04/17/2019
We enjoyed our stay. Very big house, cool furniture, pool with seaview, comfortable beds. And there was a concierge who was great. We loved to cook and grill and eat outside. The pool and jacuzzi was great. I can highly recommend this house for vacation.

Very good

by Oleg on 04/17/2019
Maybe not very fancy, or updated condo but has everything you need plus some. Would like to come back again and again.

Amazing Views and Outdoor Living

by Thomas on 04/17/2019
Unbelievable sunset and an amazing outdoor living space. No complaints at all. Quiet neighborhood and great location!

Good condo

by Bryony on 04/17/2019
Close to all the action in Kona but far enough away to not hear any noise. Condo has everything you need to enjoy your stay. Clean and tidy. Quite condo unit, good quite pool with views of the ocean. Good wifi, close parking stall. Large balcony to sit out on, road were balcony is was a little busy and noisy. Would recommend this place.


by Michael on 04/17/2019
My wife and I shared this condo with another couple and we are all very pleased with the accommodation. The patio is a real high light, providing a gorgeous view of the golf course and ocean. The suite was immaculately clean when we arrived and the kitchen very well equipped. We do not hesitate to recommend this suite and will definitely re-book if we return.

Wonderful experience!

by Kimberly on 04/17/2019
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!

My dream retirement home!

by Wendy on 04/16/2019
Never get tired of the view even if raining and a thunderstorm is taking place.

Amazing View

by Danene on 04/16/2019
We had a wonderful time. The condo is right on the shoreline and the deck looks right out on a tide pool that two turtles sunned in every day. It is easy to access and had all of the amenities we could ask for.

Kailua Kona - Villa

by William on 04/16/2019
Very nice villa. Not far from activities. Very peaceful and relaxing. Villa had great views. My family all enjoyed our stay.

Unbeatable views, comfort and easy access!

by Kathy on 04/15/2019
Kona Magic Sands is the best bang for your buck! Unbeatable views, comfort, and easy access without all the costly resort fees and crowds. We will definitely return! Kona Coast were quick to respond to any concerns and we always felt taken care of-in booking the condo, helpful tips to book tours, and they even booked some for us! Mahalo!


by Roberto on 04/15/2019

Great two bedroom...sunset from our balcony every night!

by Benjamin on 04/15/2019
This is a great two bedroom apartment right on the water and in a pretty good location. It's a 30+ minute walk to town, but only a 10 minute car ride. The ocean breeze was amazing and we could see the sunset from our balcony every night which is AMAZING. We kept the doors to the lanai wide open could hear the ocean waves crashing. There are sliding screens to keep the bugs out too. The management team was super responsive when we had questions or needed ideas for activities. My gf and I traveled with another couple and the place worked really well for a jumping off point to nearby beaches and town. You can also access the water right in front of the property. It's rocky but beautiful and fun to explore. The pool is a great amenity as well. Clean and warm. Overall the place was clean but I wouldn't say it sparkled. Kitchen was nicely updated with working appliances but the bedrooms and bathrooms seems a little out dated. I wouldn't hesitate to rent from Kona Coast again, they were great.

A+++ all around 🙂 !

by Paul on 04/15/2019
We had an amazing week staying at this lovely place! Every sunset, I found myself out on the deck taking pictures. Just couldn't resist! The kids also loved the pool and were in it probably 5 hours a day. The location is great and is just a few minutes drive from magic sands beach (great for boogie boarding) and the downtown area. Our concierge (David) was amazing. He was super responsive and helped us book a few boat trips and zip lining. Super helpful and friendly!

Awesome place to vacation

by Mark on 04/15/2019
The condo was great!! Enjoyed the pool ands close to everything we needed!!

Wanna go back

by Grant on 04/15/2019
This property was perfect for 3 generations of our family. The house is spacious, exceptionally clean and comfortable. Everyone had their own space and there is plenty of room to gather together. The pool and view can’t be beat. I’ve used VRBO to rent several houses on Kauai and the Big Island. This one is at the top of the list.

loved it

by Shelley on 04/15/2019
Enjoyed the views and the quiet.

I wish my house was like this!

by John on 04/15/2019
My parents used to own in this development (The Fairways at Mauna Lani) so I knew the golf course fronting units were special - and this one definitely is. Breakfast and evenings on the lanai were always peaceful and private. The interior is spacious and feels practically new. And the access to the Beach Club makes the soft white sand and snorkeling a very short drive away. I would definitely like to return.

great location and views

by Anne on 04/15/2019
We really enjoyed our stay at Hale Kona Kai #410. The condo has a great setting, overlooking the quiet pool area and rocky shoreline right below. The constant sound of the waves is both dramatic and soothing for sleeping, and it also means that you can't hear anything from the other condos. We didn't need to use the AC during our stay, and we spent most of our time on the lanai, looking at the ocean, spinner dolphins, offshore swimmers and boats, and turtles in the tidepools just below us. The view south down the coast is fantastic. The kitchen was well-stocked, and there's a very clean grill available for everyone to use. We never had to wait to use the grill. The bed is super comfortable, as well. A beach umbrella, sand chairs and beach towels were provided, which is a nice touch for visitors. The washer & dryer are located in a separate room down the hall, and you need exact change to use them. We were able to get a roll of quarters from the ABC store down the street. Many of the other visitors at the condo complex said they've been going there for years, and everyone we ran into was friendly and considerate of others' privacy and quiet hours. Kailua-Kona is easy walking distance from this condo. I highly recommend it, and I know we'll be back again!

Very nice condo!

We saw dolphins in the morning from the lanai. The pool of the neighboring complex overlaps with part of the lanai and people stand right there and can see into part of the condo. There are drapes that can be closed for privacy. Also children playing and screaming in this pool are pretty loud in the afternoons. There are no spices besides salt and pepper so if you like to cook plan accordingly.


by Jane on 04/13/2019
Fabulous! Gorgeous views! We will definitely be back!

Great home! We will come back again!

by Wenyong on 04/13/2019
What a great place. Great amenities, and an amazing view. Highly recommended.

Overall great stay, and would definitely recommend it to others!

by Lara on 04/13/2019
This place was super clean and was stocked with all the bath and kitchen basics, that seemed almost brand new. Plus there were some thoughtful extra items like a cooler and beach mats to use during our stay. The pool was smallish but really clean and pleasant! Landscaping was nice and included lots of flowering and fragrant plants. It's right next door to a public saltwater pool which we used a couple of times. The door lock is a punch-in-the-code kind, and it was handy to not have to deal with a key. There is a little bit of road noise when the windows are open, and the sofa bed was not very comfortable, which is why I'd give this place a 4 rating. Also, when it rains the chairs on the lanai will discolor items that are spread over them, just FYI. 🙂

I highly recommend staying here!

by Desiree on 04/13/2019
Loved our stay at this beautiful condo! The location is great and has a beautiful view of the lagoon and is a short walk from the pool. The kitchen was well stocked with all appliances and utensils needed to make meals. There was even a closet that included some essentials for a day at the beach (ice chest, chairs, towels, snorkels, fins). The lanai is gorgeous and equipped with a wet bar and BBQ grill. For a quick bite to eat or some happy hour drinks, Tropics Ale house is a short walk away.

This place was above our expectations!

by Sarah on 04/13/2019
Beautiful view, close to local attractions, and loads of amenities! We will be recommending this place to all of our friends!

Highly recommend a stay here!!

by Cynthia on 04/13/2019
This is a tastefully decorated condo right on Ali'i Drive. The location is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Kona, but still close enough to be convenient. The condo was clean and well-cared for, and we appreciated all the beach amenities. The concierge services were fantastic. David helped us book an amazing Sunrise at the summit of Mauna Kea experience. It was so beautiful.

Incredible place to stay and enjoy Kona area!

by Darrin on 04/13/2019
Very spacious and clean. All the amenities are there. No issues whatsoever. Loved waking up to the native tropical birds in the morning, feels like your sleeping in a treehouse! Lots of friendly geckos around the decks, fun to watch! All appliances and mechanicals are new and work great. Highly recommend this home for a large family or group!!

We'll definitely be back!

by Virginia on 04/13/2019
Excellent stay overall. Clean, quiet, comfortable and had all the necessary essentials to make our stay enjoyable.

We didn't spend much time at the condo, but the time we did spend was amazing!

by Haley on 04/13/2019
Exactly the same as the listing. The entire place was SPOTLESS. We didn't spend much time at the condo, but the time we did spend was amazing. It is great being so close to the water and having a grill to use- the place is definitely worth the money. There were coolers, snorkeling gear, 2 chairs and an umbrella for use- which is great! The only critique I had (and it is 100% personal preference) is that the bed is very hard. I am used to a super soft, fluffy bed but as I said, it all depends on personal preference 🙂 There is also a guest book to fill out so be sure to jot down your adventures! 🙂

We like our privacy and this was a perfect fit!

by Danielle on 04/13/2019
We had a wonderful time on our vacation. Everything about the house and location was perfect for our family of five (3 kids under 10). Nice central spot for day trips and coming home was always something we looked forward to.

This is a beautiful home, great for sharing!

by Shaya on 04/13/2019
The view is nothing less than stunning. I will say that the rooms are unequal in my mind: one steps directly into the pool with tons of light, another is big with great light and a bit more privacy, while the two downstairs rooms are very private but also lack the light and views of the upstairs rooms. However, the couple who slept downstairs enjoyed the cool darkness and privacy so I guess it just depends what people want Our concierge David, was extremely friendly and helpful with all questions we had!

Great value....would stay again

by Kelly on 04/13/2019
The condo is extremely clean and comfortable, but a little noisy. There is a beach, shopping, and dining within walking distance. The area is super pedestrian and cyclist friendly. The place is an overall great value and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.


by John on 04/12/2019
Enjoyed a terrific week at the Fairways at Mauna Lani. Spent the early mornings and evenings on the lanai overlooking the golf course and several afternoons at the Beach Club - a benefit included in our stay. Kona Coast Vacations was very responsive and professional when I report a problem with the card key...that turned out to be user error on my part. We will certainly take unit 903 if available the next time we are on the Big Island.


by Joseph on 04/11/2019
Condo is beautiful inside. Outside property is very nice and well maintained but a little dated. Pounding surf noise is fantastic. Bring a frisbee or badminton racquets... community grassy area right outside (although you can’t hear or see anything other than ocean and surf from the unit). Great kitchen. Easy access to shopping. Feels very safe with gated access to parking. Pool area is clean and the Hawaii sun is magical. Although I never did contact them, the property manager was terrific about getting me information on the condo (and things to do and see on the big island). They seemed eager to assist me if there was anything we needed. Walk north of the condo project and there’s a path to a public beach with sea turtles and some ancient Hawaiian rock structure. 15 minute drive to the Captain Cook monument trailhead if your looking for a good hike (not too easy to get back up). 5 minute drive to the Kona Country Club if you’re looking to golf. We enjoyed the location... far enough away from the crowds of Kona and magic sands but a quick drive to town when we wanted. No negative surprises. The pictures are a good representation of what you get... except the ocean view and the noise of the pounding surf which can’t be captured in a picture. Beautiful.

Beautiful sunsets

by Jennifer on 04/10/2019
View was amazing. Loved the two pools. Condo was clean and well equipped. Nice to have all the beaches supplies you need. Would definitely stay here again. Amazing sunsets.

The house Allii point 12 was the best

by Yomi on 04/10/2019
The house Allii point 12. Was the best. Great ocean views. Well equipped kitchen, bedrooms, laundry, nice furniture and decorations. We had breakfast on the Lanai every morning. Enjoyed wide open (netted) sliding doors from the living room and every bedroom. Dinners at sunset were great on the Lanai or if out late on the large dining table. The place also came equipped with a fair amount of beech gear, chairs snorkeling equipment biggie boards flippers etc. A tad expensive but worth it. My whole family had a great time staying here.

I can't say enough about this house

by Susan on 04/10/2019
The IO Place House was absolutely incredible and perfect for our family vacation. The kitchen was missing nothing! I can’t say enough about this house. From the koi pond to the huge master bedroom and the gorgeous pools to the beautiful sunsets! Kona Coast was awesome to work with. They were so helpful and made the entire rental process simple. We would use them again!

Absolutely fabulous!

by Sharee O on 04/10/2019
Thank you for a wonderful place to stay! Fabulous location, beautifully decorated, overall just a wonderful place to stay. We’ve stayed in 2 other Halii Kai units and this is the best so far. Thank you!

Amazing views!

by Laurie on 04/10/2019
This house was absolutely perfect in every way for our first visit to the Big Island. The views and the pool were amazing, and we almost never wanted to leave. The kitchen is fully stocked (and very organized) with everything you ever would need. We also loved the location - only 5 minute drive to town, 20 minute drive to the airport, and close to many other attractions on the island. The management company, Kona Coast Vacations, were very helpful and accommodating.


by Kate on 04/10/2019
Kamilo House in Kona was great - it felt like home away from home. The outdoor living space and pool area felt like having our own private resort, but the neighborhood was quiet and very centrally located. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone and hope to come back!

Casa condo 210 was great

by Bill on 04/10/2019
The time spent in Hawaii and the Casa condo 210 was great. Condo was clean, fresh and one maintenance problem was looked after immediately.

Very comfortable and of high standard

by Michael on 04/10/2019
We enjoyed our stay at Kailua Kona very much. We found everything we needed was provided. Home was very clean and we appreciated the more than adequate provision of linen.

Very enjoyable stay. Lovely setting.

by Frederick on 04/10/2019
Pros: House layout is open and airy. Very nicely furnished. Kitchen both very good for meal prep and for people to congregate. Lanai porch - terrific for hanging out. Comfortable beds and spacious bedrooms. Very clean and well maintained. Easy walk to local restaurants. Secure, gated community. Con: Community athletic fields are close by and, on several evenings, hosted spirited games into the night creating a little crowd noise for those of us with back bedrooms. Not a big deal at all.


by Marita on 04/10/2019
We enjoyed our stay in Na Hale I Kona Hawaii, The house is immaculately clean and everything was well taken care of. The manager of the property was very accommodating when I requested for an early check in because we have an early arrival in Hawaii, She made sure everything in the property is okay and she let us check in earlier. When I found out the wifi was not working , she immediately send someone to fix it. I am very satisfied with the place, everything is clean, in order , and necessities were provided too from cooking pans,beach towels and swimming equipment. The place is near downtown and airport and grocery stores too. The price I paid was all worth it. Highly recommendable.

A perfect place to relax and unwind!

by Jim on 04/10/2019
As frequent travelers, we have come to rely on the reviews of past guests to help us decide on our vacation spots…and the past reviews of this property were spot on. This was the best vacation we have taken in many years. We arrived to a spotless home, and I mean spotless! There wasn’t a smudge or piece of dust inside the home, and not a leaf or twig on the patio and in the pool. The one-acre property was perfectly manicured and there was an abundance of tropical flowers, giving me plenty of muse for landscape photographs. The neighborhood is quiet and private, yet so close to shopping and great food and cocktails. This huge home would be perfect for families or groups; however, it was also wonderful for just the two of us to sprawl out. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for cooking in, and we used the outdoor BBQ almost every day. The living space was massive, and we enjoyed relaxing on the comfortable furniture after a long day of relaxing by the pool. THE POOL & PATIO!!! As others have mentioned, the pictures do not do it justice; the view was spectacular. The pool could have been a bit warmer, but we still were able to spend time enjoying the water most days later in the afternoon (even in March). This vacation was intended to help us relax and unwind, and it did just that. We will be back!

Nice view

by Justin on 04/10/2019
Great view and space. The location -- being a block's walk from Kahalu'u Bay for snorkeling was simply amazing. The condo is equipped with the essentials. I would say the flooring, although clean, needs updating since the carpet has wrinkles in it. The biggest thing that would be the most necessary upgrade is solid bedroom doors that shut and have a working lock. I understand that the slots help air flow in a humid environment. However, it would be nice if the whole condo does not have to hear each other go tinkle. Privacy is not available in the current setup.

Kona Kewl

by Jeff on 04/10/2019
Great place! Good location! Gated community. Loved the pool and patio.


by Colleen on 04/10/2019
Clean condo, great view - very enjoyable rental

Great Value for the View

by Oldenburg on 04/10/2019
The view is amazing and falling asleep to the ocean is hard to beat! The property managers at KMS are great and very prompt. Erin was extremely helpful! This room as a great lanai which we loved. The wifi in the room is too slow to be functional but the pool area has wifi that's plenty fast.

Perfect family getaway!

by Rebecca on 04/10/2019
We had a wonderful trip and the house worked perfectly for our family group!

Good deal

by Ann on 04/10/2019
Nice place near town. Kitchen is well equipped. Bed comfortable. No direct beach access but next to the ocean and we could hear the waves at night from the living room. If you are an active couple. Plan on taking day trips to beach areas for paddling or snorkeling

Would Recommend to Friends and Family

by Amelia on 04/10/2019
We had a wonderful stay here. The apartment is very clean, well equipped and the location is so convenient to the many restaurants and shops in Kailua-Kona. Would definitely choose to stay here again.

Perfect place!

by Rehan on 04/10/2019
We have stayed at this property before & absolutely loved it. Unit 109 is spacious with perfect view & is stocked with everything one needs. We will stay here again!

Kona home!

by Sarah on 04/10/2019
Beautiful home away from home! Would be nice to have air conditioning. Beautiful view.

Beautiful Condo

by Kan on 04/10/2019
The unit is modern and clean. It is on the ground floor and has a magnificent view of the golf course and ocean in the distant. Nene are your most vocal neighbors. It is difficult to find the unit in the dark the first time. The unit manager was no where to be found. Call them in a pickle because we could not see the little signs they stated in the email. They did not return the call until the next morning. That is not helpful at all.

Location! Not completely air conditioned

by Renee on 04/10/2019
Location and view was amazing. All 3 king beds were very comfortable! And the extra padding for the sleeper sofa made that more comfortable than the typical hide-a-bed. Warning: Only TWO air conditioners for 5 separate rooms in the condo was not sufficient!

Kona Time

by Joann on 04/10/2019
Loved our time at Sea Village. Perfect unit for us...made us feel at home but a much better view! Thanks so much. A big Hawaiian MAHALO!

Stupendous Views!!!

by Caprice on 04/10/2019
Words are inadequate to describe Hale Pohaku1...the condo is better than the pictures display! The moment you arrive at the covered off street parking and step out of your car you can here the waves breaking onshore...heavenly!!! It is just a short walk through the garden courtyard to the front door of the condo and when you step inside the view is astounding and better than expected. We immediately opened the glass doors to the lanai and sat down to enjoy the tranquil sounds of the surf, a welcome sight and sound after 14 hours traveling. It was wonderful to stay here and there was plenty of room for the 4 of us. The kitchen is beautiful and well stocked, we ate all breakfasts and dinners on the lanai as who could resist that view!!! We had the pool to ourselves most of the time and the complex was quiet and serene. As others mentioned there was a little road noise during the day, but it quieted at night and honestly didn’t bother us at all. We had no issues with hot water at any long as you run it s bit it was toasty hot for the duration of our showers and washing up at any time of the day. It was very nice that both bedrooms had their own private bath as we were with another couple. The decor and artwork were was the view and the sound of the surf! It was very easy to find and just a short drive into town. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and did not want to leave. We hope to return someday. Mahalo for sharing your fabulous home with us!

Lovely Condo In Keauhou

by S P on 04/10/2019
A very pleasant experience. The Condo was nicely equipped and clean upon arriving. Communication was flawless. I would definitely book again.

This condo was great!

by Heather on 04/09/2019
It was very clean and well stocked. It had every appliance and utensil you could need. The location was excellent and close to the market and shops. The oceanfront view was fantastic and a good price for the location. I loved the decor and felt comfortable there. The check in was extremely easy and I liked the electronic entry so I never had to worry about losing a key. It was also nice that there is an onsite manager for issues if needed. My only complaints are that the bedroom was very hot even with the a/c. There was a fan in the closet that helped a little. And for some reason there is a landline phone in there that actually rang twice at 1130 PM and awoke and scared me. I just didn't answer it. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Kona.

Everything about the house and location was perfect for our family of five!

by Danielle on 04/09/2019
We had a wonderful time on our vacation. Everything about the house and location was perfect for our family of five (3 kids under 10). Nice central spot for day trips and coming home was always something we looked forward to. We like our privacy and this was a perfect fit.

Super clean, well stocked...would reccommend to others!

by Lara on 04/09/2019
This place was super clean and was stocked with all the bath and kitchen basics, that seemed almost brand new. Plus there were some thoughtful extra items like a cooler and beach mats to use during our stay. The pool was smallish but really clean and pleasant! Landscaping was nice and included lots of flowering and fragrant plants. It's right next door to a public saltwater pool which we used a couple of times. The door lock is a punch-in-the-code kind, and it was handy to not have to deal with a key. There is a little bit of road noise when the windows are open, and the sofa bed was not very comfortable, which is why I'd give this place a 4 rating. Also, when it rains the chairs on the lanai will discolor items that are spread over them, just FYI. 🙂 Overall great stay, and would definitely recommend it to others!

Might not find a better place!

by 현성 on 04/09/2019
If you are looking for a place to stay for two or more families, you might not find a better place in Kona. It has everything you need for your life. It also has parasols for swimming, beach chairs and boogie boards. It would be better if you play golf, but the view in front of the 18th hole and the beach sunset are great!

The place is great!

by Lu on 04/09/2019
Great view. Looks exactly the same online. The management team is great as well.

This is a beautiful home, great for sharing!

Beautiful place to stay

by Ti on 04/08/2019
The condo was beautiful. Plenty of room for our family. Everything was very well organized and well stocked. We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet vacation central on the island. This was our first time using vrbo and it went flawlessly. Thank you very much!!!

Perfect place

by David on 04/08/2019
This was a great place to stay for our family. The location was perfect- not too far from town but much quieter. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The kids loved the pool and the bbq area was really convenient.

This condo was very clean and comfortable!

by Shaelah on 04/07/2019
It had an amazing ocean view, washer/dryer, plenty of towels and even beach toys! The pool areas on the property are very nice and not crowded at all. Perfect for our first vacation with our toddler!


by Marina on 04/07/2019
Luxury accommodations in a great resort area with plenty of activities!

Beautiful setting

by Julie on 04/07/2019
Beautiful setting, great location, peaceful and relaxing.


by Corinna on 04/06/2019
Lovely, comfortable, thoughtful home!

Our stay here was excellent!

by Misha on 04/06/2019
The location of the property makes it easily accessible to all of the many features of the Kona Coast. The surf is so close it sounds like you are sleeping on the beach (when in reality you have a comfy king sized bed)! It was perfect for our family of three. The kitchen was well equipped with basic tools. There were lawn chairs, mats, and a cooler to hit the beach with. The heated pool on the property is small but clean and perfect for taking a break from the beaches. They even have some helpful guidebooks to help plan your stay! All in all, would highly recommend and stay here again

Great stay....can't go wrong!

by Jay on 04/06/2019
Such a great stay in Kona. The apartment location is awesome. Communication with Tracy and Gabby was quick and seamless. After long days exploring the island, you'll love the fact there are no stairs. Location. Location. Our family was at the tennis courts and swimming pool almost daily - both of which are two doors down from the suite. For families, we loved the kitchen amenities, extra towels and linen & beach toys. We definitely will be back. You can't go wrong working with Kona Coast Vacations. Aloha!

Beautiful ocean colors!

by Terry on 04/06/2019
Friendly native Hawaiians. Not alot of user friendly beachs unless you just want to sunbath and not get in the water! The tide pools are numerous though and easy to get to. The weather was perfect in March. Downtown Kona on Ali'i Dr. has fabulous shopping and great restaurants. Also fun street markets! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Kona coast and hope to be back soon.

Bigger place than expected. Very clean and quiet.

by Karl on 04/06/2019
Air conditioning worked perfectly. Shower with strong pressure was a really nice plus at the end of the day. Would do again. don't do it justice!

by Henry on 04/06/2019
My wife and I with our in-laws had a wonderful family vacation in IO Way - the place is spectacular, in a wonderful setting with all the space and amenities you could ask for. Kona Coast Vacations are fantastic, very responsive and helped us whenever we had any trouble. The photos don't even do justice to the surroundings. The house and all the rooms and outside area are all very spacious - I would recommend this property to larger families or groups wanting some privacy in a stylish space with amazing views. Would definitely return!

We will stay here again when we come back to the Big Island!!!!

by Tammy on 04/06/2019
Incredible! The location is close to everything. The house is amazing! Everyone was so happy with their stay.

This condo is a walk to town and right next to the ocean.

by Gina on 04/06/2019
It has some nice amenities, and a great space for hanging out. The bed was comfortable, the sofa sleeper not so much! The hosts were quick to respond to some details that needed attention. Not a bad space to chill, hear the ocean, cook your own meals, put your feet up, and sit on the balcony.

We don't have anything but compliments when talking about this property!

by Vanessa on 04/06/2019
We loved our stay at Kona Pacific. The apartment was very clean, very well equiped and had a beautiful design. .


by Jane on 04/06/2019
Fabulous! Gorgeous views! We will definitely be back!

Enjoyed our stay. Loved the view and nearby beach!

by Lucy on 04/06/2019
Roomy facilitates, amazing view and beach. Appreciated amenities like beach umbrellas and chairs and towels.

Very nice place, we loved it. Well located.

by Isabelle on 04/06/2019
The accommodation had everything we needed and even more!

I would definitely stay here again!

by Meg on 04/06/2019
We come to the Big Island for the Lavaman triathlon most years, and love staying at the Colony Villas complex for the race! It's very convenient to the race location (the Hilton) and the townhouse has what we need to rest and prepare. This house was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Having a full kitchen is great, and it was well stocked. The only thing I thought was weird was that the master bedroom "king" bed was just 2 beds pushed together (each made up separately) with a large blanket over the top, so there was a big gap in the center of the bed. For a group of 6, this house is a very good value. The location is great, and having the kitchen makes a huge difference.

Ocean Front Views

by Osamu on 04/06/2019
Ocean Front, Sunset, Surfers, Lanai... All you can chill out in Kona!!!

Great location

by Thomas on 04/06/2019
Great location.

Gorgeous home away from home!

by Kimberly on 04/05/2019
This condo far exceeded our expectations! It was not only a gorgeous home, it had wonderful amenities and was close to lots of great places. We will definitely be booking this home again when we visit Hawaii!

Our stay was wonderful, due in large part to Kona Coast Vacations

by Aprilani on 04/04/2019
Kona Coast Vacations provided service beyond the expectations of my group. We chose a home they manage for several of us attending a workshop nearby. They patiently and pleasantly answered my questions. They also provided us with the basic info plus clear driving directions and check in process which made it flawless for each of us. The property was comfortable, immaculate and provided a lovely place for us to gather after our classes and share our experiences and meals. The fitness room was clean and comfortable too. I felt Kona Coast would be there if needed. I didn't need their help until the last moment at check out and they went beyond my expectations to lend a hand. They were polite, professional and very helpful throughout our stay. The owner wanted to repair an appliance that we weren't using and the group asked if it could be done after we left. No problem from anyone! 

Great company

by Boris on 04/04/2019
Great company to work with for lodging on the Big Island. We booked through AirBnB a condo in Waikoloa (Hali'i Kai) and enjoyed our stay and working with them as well as their free concierge service.

Calm and Beach Happy

by Christine on 04/04/2019
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Kona Isle. We could have enjoyed the island and just stayed on site the whole time. We saw whales, dolphins, spinner dolphins and various fish in the waves. We did explore the island and the condo was central to everything we needed. It was quiet, clean, comfortable and inviting in our B5 unit. All that we could have asked for and more. Thanks for sharing your unit with us! Mahalo

This was a great location

by David on 04/04/2019
This was a great location and Amy in the office and Jeff the maintenance person were great. We spent 11 days enjoying the unit. Close to many things we like to do and with the great customer service it made our stay, with our daughter and granddaughter, memorable. Our unit was Mona Loa Village 22.


by Carola on 04/04/2019
Kona Coast is truly exceptional, the staff is so friendly and personable! They are making sure our guests have a comfortable and most of all, hassle-free stay during these precious vacation times, providing all information necessary before arrival. They are available to help with recommendations and any arrangements you will need during your stay. Kona Coast's maintenance staff also ensures our condo is not only thoroughly clean but in tip-top conditions so we all can relax the moment we step in. We couldn't be happier with their service! (Waikoloa Colony Villa 303)


by Judy on 04/04/2019
Everything we needed was there. C-35 was nicely decorated. The ocean view from the balcony was way better than a peek a boo view. The grounds are immaculate. Parking was assigned. Location was perfect. Best to have auto. A million thanks!!


by Rose on 04/04/2019
We had the most amazing time at the property on Ali'i drive in May. The condo was amazing. Had everything we needed and then some. Awesome views and incredible accommodations. The space allowed us and our guests to have our own master bedrooms. The Kona Coast staff was so responsive and was able to take care of a couple of issues within just a couple hours. Thank you so much for a great stay. We will definitely book with them again.

Great views!

by Shelly on 04/04/2019
Perfect ocean views! Clean, convenient, EASY process!

Will Return

by Mark on 04/04/2019
We always enjoy Kona and have stayed in this apartment for 2, 4 week stays 2018 and 2019. We are anticipating returning to Kona next year. 324 is a nicely situated unit. We like the view. The bathroom is becoming rather antiquated and could use some renewal. The tub and sink are losing their luster and the sliding tub enclosure is a little shabby. It would be appreciated if month long rentals like our received some consideration. ( such as a late check out) We maintain the condo ourselves, cleaning and changing the linen as we stay. This is a benefit to the owner. The experience with Kona Coast has been positive and you are easy to deal with and straight forward. Since you asked for feed back, I'm taking the opportunity to provide some.

Beautiul Condo

I didn’t get in till after midnight and was told that a concierge service would be available as I have disabilities that prevent me from lifting more than 20 lbs and the parking was far off and I was put on the top floor . Trying to find the unit in the dark with a cell phone light, then getting into the condo with a code was a bit of a hassle although Kona coast tried to make up for all the confusion with a gift basket delivered to the wrong unit. They were kind enough to give it to me and as I have titanium in my neck from C2 to T1 front and back it’s difficult to turn my head and a pump in my rear end stairs are difficult. However the condo was beautiful and The manager Bryan helped save the entire time by giving me his parking spot and even helped me carry groceries upstairs. I have to tell you that he is Kona Isle saving grace!
Aloha and thank you for taking a moment to share your experience.  We are very sorry that you had such a rough start in the beginning of your stay & for any miscommunication regarding our check-in process.  We are very willing to assist our guests in any way possible and it appears that we did not receive any messages that you needed special assistance.  Brian is a wonderful person & a great on-site manager, we are so happy to learn that he was able to offer his assistance to you as well.

We are pleased to hear that you did enjoy your stay and hope that we can welcome you again.

Our third visit to this property.

Great experience!

Perfect House

by Susan on 04/03/2019
This home was perfect for our family of seven! The kitchen is the best equipped we’ve ever seen in a vacation home! Loved everything about it.

We had a wonderful stay at Shores 223

by Stewart on 04/03/2019
The apartment was more than enough for a family of 4 and was in fact much larger than we were anticipating. For us the lanai was the best part of the apartment with numerous options for outdoor seating, we spent almost all our time out there. The inclusion of an electric grill on the lanai was also useful, as it meant we did not have to leave the apartment for BBQing. The kitchen was well equipped, and both bathrooms were large. Ceiling fans in all rooms were sufficient to keep the unit cool, as we were able to keep windows and doors open due to screen doors. The pool area was close by and was a pleasant location to hang out. The grounds of the property were spectacular, well maintained with a number of large koi ponds. 5/5 would stay here again.

Wonderful Time

by Terri on 04/02/2019
We had a wonderful time at the Shores at Waikoloa 124. The condo was just right and so convenient to the pool and shopping and restaurants. Thank you for all of your help. We have rented with you before and will again when we return to the Big Island.

Fabulous location

by Bonnie on 04/02/2019
Condo unit was as pictured. Beautiful ocean views, clean, and nicely furnished. Fabulous location. Could walk to downtown and to many restaurants and bars. Kona Coast Vacations was very easy to work with. They were responsive to e-mails and made the process trouble free. There was a very minor maintenance problem and they fixed it within a few hours. Would definitely recommend KCV and particularly this unit. One small suggestion: I would provide a welcome bag of coffee as not everyone gets to the grocery store the day they arrive. Hope to return.

Absolutely wonderful visit

by Rachel on 04/02/2019
We had an absolutely wonderful visit at Hali'i Kai unit 10E. The views from the lanai are wonderful. We could sit on the lanai and see sunset every night over the ocean and watch whales breaching. The kids loved having the grass right outside the lanai to run into and found other kids to play with in nearby units. This unit was fairly close to the pool. The pool area was beautiful and we loved having the bar/restaurant right there so we could grab a very good happy hour mai tai while watching the kids play in the pool. The only time we ate at the pool-side restaurant was on Taco Tuesday, and those were yummy. We also walked to a couple nearby restaurants off this property (on the Hilton grounds, as well to Tropics Ale House). This unit was very well equipped with beach gear including plenty of beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, coolers, and snorkel gear. Condiments do not stay in the fridge from visitor to visitor, but spices do stay in the cupboards, in case you plan to hit the grocery store on your way to check in. We had a couple minor maintenance requests while staying and management responded very promptly to our requests. We highly recommend this unit!!!!

The condo is amazing and exceeded all of our expectations

by Cindy on 04/02/2019
My husband and I stayed in the condo for two weeks with another couple and had a great time. The pictures of the condo are accurate and everything that we needed and more was waiting in the condo for us. The best snorkeling beach was right across the street and a there was a trolley bus that stopped at the corner to take you to the restaurants and bars for only $2.00 per person. We are looking forward to returning again.

Great vacation

by Brandon on 04/02/2019
I grew up coming to this condo and it holds a special place in my heart. Lots of good memories here. The condo had everything we needed to make a great vacation possible.

We love the location. It's close to the beach club and the pool!

by Everett on 03/31/2019
This is our 2nd year there and, we really enjoyed our stay at Mauna Lani Terrace J101. We love the location. It’s close to the beach club and the pool. We hope to come back next year. We also really like the condo itself. That being said we did have one issue this year. The lock on the front door broke and would not unlock with the key. We had to go in and out through the sliding glass door and leave it unlocked when we were gone. Since this happened early on a Saturday and the locksmith could not come until Monday we had to lock all of our valuables in the car whenever we went to the beach or pool or anywhere.

This place is great!

by Maria on 03/30/2019
The only hesitation I have is that it is in what seems like a retirement community with unfriendly neighbors, so if you stay here either be silent on the Lanai after 8 pm or risk having older people swear at you NYC style and file unnecessary noise complaints.

Great place to stay.

by Jacob on 03/30/2019
Will definitely stay again.

Clean and nicely furnished!

by Robin on 03/30/2019
Condo is clean and nicely furnished with lovely views of the ocean. However, one bedroom overlooks the pool of another condominium complex and the other bedroom is next to the parking lot and the neighbors were quite noisy during quiet time. Be aware that the condo is located in a very (over) developed area with lots of traffic and tourists which is not to our liking. Also, parking in Kailua-Kona is difficult with very few parking spots.


by Emily on 03/30/2019
Loved the accessibility to the downtown strip of Kona, we were able to walk to dinner and local nightlife every night!

Located close to everything!

by Joumana on 03/30/2019
Condo was really nice view was amazing had breakfast out on the balcony everyday. We even go to see dolphins from the balcony

This apartment is well-equipped and very stylish.

by Tony on 03/30/2019
Exactly as described/depicted online. The perfect home from home on the Kona Coast. If we come back to this area we will definitely enquire about staying here again.

Perfect family holiday.

by Marine on 03/30/2019
Beautiful house, clean and modern, quiet and beautiful neighborhood, perfect family holiday.

March 2019

by Steven on 03/28/2019
We loved this condo, such a wonderful location, beds were nice, and the central air is a must for us. Close to Kona town, restaurants and shopping.

Good location

by Kathy on 03/27/2019
Good location for walking to town. It was spacious and having two bathrooms was great. Laundry facilities was good. Coffee machine needs replacing and my wife couldn’t find a toaster. Overall very good


by Jessica on 03/27/2019
Wonderful family vacation condo.

Really Happy with A101

by Daphne on 03/27/2019
We were really happy with A101 Waikoloa Fairways. The views were terrific and we loved the peacefulness of the unit and the complex. the unit was very clean and well maintained especially considering it was built in 1990. The beds were really comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. We’ve already let friends and family know about KCV and Fairways A101.

Kailua-Kona vacation for 7

by Bert on 03/27/2019
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.

loved this house!

by Ronald on 03/27/2019
We loved this house - it was the perfect fit for our extended family! There was more than enough room for the 8 of us - almost more than we actually needed. We appreciated all the thoughtful amenities in the kitchen and throughout the house. The pool/hot tub was a perfectly peaceful respite after a day filled with exploring the island. And the lanai was breath-taking! While it was the only seating area large enough for our group to eat together - I can't imagine a better spot to enjoy a meal!

Lovely stay

by Missy on 03/26/2019
We spent 10 wonderful days at Casa 328! Condo had everything we needed. Kitchen was updated. Condo wasn’t ready at 4:00 as promised but we checked out the property and about 30 minutes later the condo was cleaned and ready for our stay.

Enjoyed our stay very much

by Meredith on 03/26/2019
The unit was an older one and a bit dated. But the view and Lanai was fantastic. Really right on the water’s edge with loud ocean waves. Didn’t really mind no a/c. Weather is great in March. Carpet could use a cleaning and kitchen utensils need replacing. But all in all we really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful Condo

by Michelle on 03/26/2019
This condo was perfect for the 5 of us (4 adults, 1 child). It was very clean and had everything we needed! We enjoyed the private access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club and spent more than one day there. The home is very spacious and we felt the photos didn’t do it justice! Very lovely condo! We enjoyed our stay!

Beautiful place

by Anonymous on 03/26/2019
Lovely clean and spacious, appreciated the shampoo, tp.

Comfortable & Well Eqipped!

by Donald on 03/26/2019
Unit 327 was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the view from the lanai. Nice to have the beach items to borrow. Highly recommend this unit!

Awesome condo! Great location!

by Shayna on 03/25/2019
We truly enjoyed our stay here. So much space, love the corner unit with the large lanai. The condo was really clean and had everything we needed. Would highly recommend staying here!

Great villa, very clean, well supplied, nice privacy

by Darci on 03/25/2019
Wonderful piece of paradise. It was very relaxing and provided nice privacy. The only negative we could find was the musty smell, but nothing that a couple of Hawaiian scented wallflowers wouldn’t fix 🙂 Thank you for a great vacation!

Peaceful and relaxing

by Kelly on 03/25/2019
This is a beautiful home . We were so comfortable here. The kids loved the pool and it was so peaceful and light , open and airy. Cannot say in words how relaxing and welcoming this home is. No issues at all!

One Of The Best Places We Have Stayed

by Rohan on 03/25/2019
From the start to the end, we really enjoyed staying at Helemano. Kona Coast Vacations was amazing to deal with and we loved the gift bag as well. Our Kona Concierge (Dave) was awesome and recommended many great activities for the family. The house was well beyond our expectations as it was right on the water and we saw dolphins, surfers and awesome ocean life through our stay. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need and they have really soft towels and lovely seating all over the property. The doors to the backyard, once open, really open up the house to the ocean and give you an incredible inside/outside feel. The pool was great and the hot tub was heated too. It truly felt like we were living the Hawaii life when we were there and was really comfortable versus staying in a small hotel room. We would love to stay there again and we will be doing that soon.

Clean and well located

by Virginia on 03/25/2019
After coming to Sea Village for more than a decade, we tried a different condo. It was clean and well set up. The corner location meant that it kept cool without direct sun, but also meant that the view felt cut short a bit, without direct view of the sunset etc. The only things that could improve it for me would be better quality and fitting sheets in the master, and many more hooks for towels inside and outside. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo.

Waikoloa Colony Villas

by Mei on 03/25/2019
We loved the condo, it was spotless and welcome. It has everything we needed from the kitchen, laundry to beach gears. Definitely will recommend to friends and family.

Lovely Condo

by Daniel on 03/24/2019
The condo was lovely and we very much enjoyed the lanai, eating at the little table and viewing the ocean waves.Additionally, I had a few interactions with the condo manager, Brian. He was very friendly and suggested a wonderful guidebook for the island, which we borrowed from the library. A little touch that leaves a nice impression. Thank you Brian. The grounds and pool were lovely, too.We enjoyed our stay!

Beautiful View

by Linda on 03/24/2019
The perfect house for our family of 9. This home is everything you expect and more. The description, pictures, and amenities are accurate. The house is very well maintained and the Kona Coast customer service reps are fantastic. The washer broke down toward the end of our stay and they quickly took care of fixing it before we left. One of the amenities of the house is a concierge service, which I highly recommend using. David, the concierge , was great with timely responses and several suggestions. If I ever find myself going back to the Big Island, I will be renting through Kona Coast Vacation Rentals - Superb operation.


by Tracie on 03/24/2019
Absolutely the best home we have ever had! the extra amenities, supplies, landscaping and upkeep of the home was perfection Thank you so much for sharing it with us

Living up to the ad

by Greg on 03/24/2019
We went with 8 to celebrate 4 50th birthdays. The house was more beautiful then the pictures showed. Enough space to celebrate together and be alone if you wanted. The kitchen was amazing. More silverware, plates and cooking gear than we needed. The small issues that we had were remedied that day. The staff was very professional and did an impeccable job. It took us one day to realize that we wanted to watch every sunset from the lanai. So close to restaurants, grocery stores and downtown Kona. I can’t state how much we enjoyed the house and it’s location. I wouldn’t do the review any justice if I did not mention David from the concierge service. He guided us to the green and black sand beaches. And told us where to stop on the way for the best pastries we ever had. Whale watching, manta snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, helicopter rides, and set up a private dinner with a chef Cindy, a ukulele player and hula dancer. He answered every phone call and it is obvious he loves his job. Thank you to the home owners, Kona Coast vacations and David. Can’t wait for my wife to turn 50 so we can come back.

Great property right on the water

by Andrea on 03/22/2019
This property was exactly as advertised! We were right on the water and could hear the waves crashing all night long. The property was also perfectly located, just a couple of miles up from the downtown area and on the trolley line. I highly recommend this property. My family and I definitely plan on staying here again!

Just what we were looking for

by Donald on 03/22/2019
We wanted a place close to the Kahaluu beach so we could walk there for snorkeling, and this unit was perfect (5 minute walk). Its also well located if you are headed south towards the Captain Cook area (you don't have to deal with Kona town traffic). The unit itself is very nice and clean. We loved watching the sunsets from the balcony. Check-in was very smooth. And, an added bonus for couples-- it has 2 sinks in the bathroom! It was also nice to have a washer and dryer in the unit. Though all went smoothly, the manager still checked in often by email to see if we needed anything. We plan to stay here on our next visit.

Nice quiet spot with cool lanai view

by David on 03/22/2019
The property entrance is dated and they could do more with the ocean front, but the condo view, quite setting, and general location are very positive

Amazing Ocean View

by Rebecca on 03/22/2019
My husband and I loved this condo. Truly ocean front. We were in Kona for a wedding so lots of activities. I would have liked to spend more time at the condo on the lanai. With the direct ocean view it felt very private. Nice to have a table and chairs plus the chaises. The kitchen was well equipped and the bed was comfy (soft). You could even hear the waves from the bedroom. The complex was nice, great location. Nice Easy walk into town. We rented snorkel stuff before we noticed there was some in the closet. Definitely hoping to visit again.

Beautiful home, very clean, great pool and location. We had a wonderful stay

by Scott on 03/21/2019
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!

Shores at Waikoloa

by Paul on 03/21/2019
We've stayed here before and we'll stay again. Spotless unit and very comfortable.

Absolutely loved this property and our stay!

by Amanda on 03/21/2019
The property was exactly as described in the pictures. The unit was very spacious and very nicely decorated. The location was perfect for walking into town and being right on the ocean was an amazing view! The Kona Coast team was great at providing constant contact prior to arrival through our departure. I will definitely stay here the next time I visit Kona.

Great views and fully equipped

by Emery on 03/21/2019
Fully enjoyed our stay. The unit is very well equipped, complete with snorkeling gear and a buggy board, and very comfortable. It's in a very convenient location, close to the town of Kona and also close to major highways and also close to some very nice snorkeling locations. There were minor ant visits in the kitchen, but nothing to be alarmed about, the solution may be worse than the problem. Clean, quiet and comfortable...enjoy.


by Amy on 03/21/2019
Everything was great! We would stay again! Thank you!

Fantastic place to stay for a family!

by Robyn on 03/20/2019
Great location, great property. We stayed with our two young kids and they loved the pool and the lanai. Close to groceries and shopping and lots of beaches and sightseeing. Kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to make meals.

Condo a was a real joy to be there

by Bill on 03/20/2019
Thanks for the use of your great week at your Condo A very pleasantly Hawaiian touches Love ❤️ it Thanks Again

Best trip ever!

by Natasha on 03/20/2019
The photos do not do this house and views justice! Could not be more happy with our stay here!

Love. Aloha and hui ho

by Cherry on 03/20/2019
Ohana set-up so you can walk in and walk out with nothing more than a bathing suit, sarong, costco card and your friends. Super friendly and welcoming. Everything explained in a book when needed. Worth every penny. We love you guys. All the little touches are amazing. Love the stereo set-up for each area. Don't get me started on the beach. Aloha. We will see you again.

A perfect ocean air retreat! Everything described & more

by Mary Jo F on 03/20/2019
Absolutely beautiful, clean & well equipped, this home was the perfect vacation retreat for our family. The nanowalls in the 3rd level master suite made it a tropical dream suite. Our adult kids loved having their own wing on the main floor. The pool was refreshing, the patio lovely for lounging as a family & reading while listening to the crashing waves.

I would highly recommend this location!!

by Ben on 03/19/2019
A lovely, clean apartment and an ocean view. We would come back again.My wife and I had a fantastic trip and look forward to coming back for another visit. Thank you for providing all that was needed to make it an enjoyable time.

Great Stay

by Kenneth on 03/19/2019
We had a great stay and the property was much better than we thought.Our only recommendation would be to have some cold refreshments in the frig. E.g. water. Since most people had a long flight and by the time they get to the unit and the heat of the day that would be great.

Very good!

by Nadean on 03/18/2019
The condo is very nice... great location.

Seaside Kona

by Grady on 03/17/2019
This was a wonderful place. Kona was fantastic. We went on the water with Hawaiian boating adventures. Saw Dolphins turtles,whales and manta rays. Very good time on the ocean. Cooled dinner every night in the condo. Great deck with ocean views.Two bedrooms worked very well as we were both comfortable in separate rooms. .


by Michael on 03/17/2019
Wonderful residence and location. 3rd time staying at Kona Coast and we will be back.

No complaints... well worth the money and I would stay here again.

by Sharon on 03/17/2019
Loved the property;,super clean; secured; and close to down town.

Lots of great amenities. Beautiful property, designated parking spot.

by Laura on 03/17/2019
We had a great experience. Gorgeous view, private beach area, felt like we had the place to ourselves. Designated parking spot was a bonus. I looked at alot of places and the ocean close and beach area was top priority. The condo had everything we needed. We didn't spend much time there so it was adequate. It's not fantasy but it's clean, nice and comfortable. Affordable is a plus. It is a little noisy in the bedroom as it gets some road noise, pretty sure that is consistent on Ali drive. $1.00 earplugs fixed the problem. Would highly recommend Kona Isle. Looking forward to our next trip.

Nice place on the water and walking distance to town

by Ann on 03/17/2019
This was a very nice place to stay. Right on the water and close to everything. It was easy to walk up to shops and restaurants and easy to drive to other parts of the island. The only issue was the internet went out twice for several hours during our 5 day stay.

Choose this one - you won't be disappointed!

by Maree on 03/17/2019
Clean. Nice TVs. Great lanai. Comfortable furniture and bed. Fans everywhere and central AC. Kitchen had all necessities. Switches all labeled. Good decor - not a bunch of annoying nick backs! Towels were insufficient.

Great Vacation

by Colleen on 03/17/2019
Had a great vacation at Kona Isle. Kona Coast vacations were very accommodating with any requests we had

Perfect for our family

by Julie on 03/17/2019
Everything was beautiful, and clean .

Wish we could have stayed longer!!

by Alicia on 03/16/2019
Great place. Loved the huge lanai and view. Very good location . Condo super clean and well equipped.

Great place!

by Amy on 03/16/2019
Views of the ocean and the boats in the harbor snorkeling with manta rays. Close to grocery store and a few nice restaurants. Very quiet neighborhood.

It's nice and quiet there. Beautiful views!

by Kurt on 03/16/2019
This is a great rental. It had everything that was promised. There is one giant master bed/bath upstairs and 3 smaller bed/baths that are separated from the main house by a courtyard. Kitchen is a bit dated, but everything worked. A good selection of beach chairs and umbrellas that we used were available. There are “window unit” type A/C's in the bedrooms and main house that all work-although they're loud. The place is a 20 min drive from Kailua-Kona.

Great place to stay and we'll surely be back!

by Chi Thanh on 03/16/2019
This was a great location; we think it's ideal for those with plans on both the Kona and Hilo side during their stay. It's also just a great location to be at. The property itself is wonderful. It was clean and came most everything you need to be comfortable and cook your own meals.

This place has it all!

by Barbara on 03/16/2019
A great view, clean unit and it's centrally located for all of your adventures on the Big Island

This place was great, exclent ocean view!

by Abraham on 03/16/2019
Everything we needed like coolers and beach towels for three days of Kona fun. Next door to a coffee shop and close to town. Overall a great place I'd stay at again.

Large lanai was exceptionally great and we all loved it!

by Noriko on 03/16/2019
The house is cozy and very comfortable to stay. Each bedroom except master BR is kind of small but spacey lanai with an ocean view is extra plus. Clean and lots of amenities. Safe and so quiet. We had a wonderful stay.

This was the perfect house for our group of families with young children!

by Lindsey on 03/16/2019
The view is just stunning, especially at sunset. The three main bedrooms are ideal with their en suite bathrooms and sliding doors to the beautiful backyard (and the master is massive). Our kids enjoyed bath time in the big master tub. The pool and hot tub are where we spent a lot of our time. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious. And the indoor-outdoor living area is just spectacular! We couldn't have been happier and hope to return again.

This home is ideally situated to offer views of the beautiful sunset each evening!

by Cathy on 03/16/2019
We were traveling with our family; six adults and three children. The main living area of the home did not offer a/c. We were aware of this prior to our arrival. Due to the age of our youngest grandson, we were not comfortable leaving the bi-fold doors open across the back of the home. The pool and hot tub are very close to the home. This did make the living area a little warm during the day. There are ceiling fans and floor fans in this area to help with this issue. However, if traveling with small children you might want to be aware of this. We stayed in the home in early March 2019.

The place was perfect and spotlessly clean!

by Shannon on 03/16/2019
Everything we needed was already thought of. Kitchen is fully equipped and we had plenty of towels. Washer and dryer worked great and really came in handy when my luggage went on vacation without me for the first few days of my stay. I hope to stay there again soon!

Loved the area and the rental!

by Jeff on 03/16/2019
This place was beautiful and we enjoyed every moment of it. the only complaint is how close the pool in the next complex was. it made the condo and balcony less private. there was a pull down shade that could be used to block it though. I was concerned about the lack of AC but that did not prove to be an issue . the fans and windows open kept it cool and comfortable .

3 Blocks from beach....very clean!

by Paula on 03/16/2019
The condo had everything from beach chairs and umbrellas to every cooking untensil you will every need. No signs that this home is 3 blocks from the beach. It was very clean, no sand anywhere. Thanks for having a great place available for us.


by Carlos on 03/16/2019
The location is great, had awesome time in Kona. Thank you.

Beyong expectations....spotlessly clean!

by Monique on 03/16/2019
This house was beyond our expectations, even after reading the reviews and seeing the pictures it was better than that. It was spotlessly clean, the beds and linens were so comfortable. The kitchen had every possible electrical device you could think of. The grounds were spectacularly taken care of. We were just far enough away from town - a 15 minute drive or less depending on the time/traffic. A grocery store and drugstore less than a mile away. The bay was less than a 3 minute walk where you can rent paddleboards, canoes, kayaks, snorkel or take a fishing excursion. Our vacation was flawless and i believe we owe a big part of that to the amazing house with it's amenities.

Very quiet and serene. 5 stars!

by Aubrey on 03/16/2019
Our family of 6 (plus an infant) rented the house for a week and found that it was just perfect for 6 adults. Plenty of room to relax and enjoy the amazing views. The pool and outdoor area are so nice that we spent most of our time out there. The house is near to a busy road but you wouldn't know it.

Wonderful Condo, great location, with everything you will need!

by Kristy on 03/16/2019
Has a great outdoor lanai space, parking and all the amenities you could want. Its at the end of Ali drive so can walk to most restaurants but out of the noise and bustle. Professional building management

We'll certainly come back!

by Dominique on 03/16/2019
Excellent condo in a more quiet corner, but super close to the action. Spacious & lovely.

If you are a golfer, it's a wonderful spot!

by Lyle on 03/16/2019
The golf course in Waikoloa Village is beautiful and a great value, but still close to some exclusive golf courses, Mauna Lani Golf Course was one of my favorites which is only 10 mins from the Condo. Kona Coast is vey professional and communicates great. I would recommend this condo without reservation. Thx soooooo much Kona Coast!!!! Also, it's an amazing place even if you don't golf. Wonderful amenities:)

The apartment is excellent and at a great location, just a few minutes drive from all places we wanted to go to!

by Sherry on 03/16/2019
We had a great stay and this was certainly a much better experience than staying at an expensive and musty hotel room. The Kona Coast hosting and cleaning crew are professional and ensured our stay was perfect in all aspects. We were able to notice their top notch hospitality at first glance - the bed pillows were arranged nicely, the towels displayed carefully and even the kitchen paper towel roll was artistically folded. The apartment is also very well stocked with everything we needed, from beach towels to even Tupperwares! Thank for for letting us stay at your beautiful place!

We stayed in Unit D37 at the Kona Reef Condominiums and give it a five-star rating. The check-in process with directions was very easy and all information for the condo was provided ahead of time, as well as in a book at the unit. The unit was decorated in true "island style". It was so relaxing! The view from the lanai was absolutely breathless! We enjoyed many relaxing times gazing out and were even so fortunate as to see the "green flash" one night at sunset. The kitchen was well stocked for the most enthusiastic chef and provided everything one could ask for from bath towels, to chairs, to umbrellas. It was a comfortable and absolutely lovely home-away-from-home. Thank you for sharing it with us! We hope to return one day!

The house was beautiful and the location was uniquely private. The orchard was also captivating!

by Colin on 03/16/2019
The house is minutes from downtown Kona and there are farmers markets in every direction. Yet it is nestled in a gated orchard and the pool couldn’t be more private. I really came to enjoy the kitchen which was well stocked with utensils and food staples. Close to one of the best snorkel beaches and quick access to the north highway made beach access a breeze. The lanai was perfect for dinners and stargazing! All of this and yet I still couldn’t give it five stars for one simple fact. The master bedroom matress was horrible. We ended up sleeping in the guest bedroom on a small queen frame the whole week. It may seem small to some people but back pain can ruin a vacation. This is an important piece to every house and an easy fix please address it. Other then that the house was absolutely perfect and the hospitality was amazing!

Nice Views!

by Michael on 03/16/2019
Great saltwater pool by ocean and nice views from BBQ area!

Outstanding hospitality!

by Sommer on 03/16/2019
Beautiful location with outstanding hospitality!

We enjoyed our stay here

by Brenda on 03/16/2019
We very much enjoyed the central location, large patio with ocean view . Suite has ample room for 4 guests.

The condo we rented was perfect:

by Susan on 03/16/2019
Can't say enough good things about Kona Coast vacations. Best communications ever. Plus the condo we rented was perfect: super clean, great facilities and terrific location! Casa de Emdeko is a wonderful condo development that is extremely clean and beautifully landscaped and maintained. The pools are fantastic, especially enjoyed the pool overlooking the ocean. The condo was well maintained and had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation, even chairs we could take on our day excursions which were greatly appreciated. It was nice to know that Kona Coast was available at anytime if we needed them and they even offered to help us when our flight was cancelled on our return home. We would definitely go through this agency again and will be recommending to friends.

Second time in B108

by John on 03/15/2019
We stayed in Keauhou Punahele B-108 2/27/19-3/9/19. This is our 24th visit to Keauhou complex and have enjoyed every vacation and the second time n B-108. The unit was clean, had great views, close to the pool, and well equipped.

We LOVE this island!

by John on 03/14/2019
First time on the Big Island after doing Maui for the past 20 years. What a wonderful vibe. The condo was clean and comfortable and the lanai is great for watching the sun disappear into the ocean. Very convenient to groceries (1/4 mi) and the Sheraton (1/2 mi) for manta ray sightings. The only improvement would be beach chairs, beach toys and an umbrella for visits to the water.

Perfect condition!

by Coby on 03/14/2019
Nicest place we’ve ever stayed. Owners had EVERYTHING — and all of it was well labeled. It was obvious that the owners really were trying to make our stay enjoyable. Thank you.

Our time in Kona

by Lani on 03/14/2019
Loved this beautiful unit! So well decorated and had everything we needed in a vacation home! Great location to Ali'i drive and all of downtown Kona. I just wish we'd booked it longer!!

Loved it!

by Marietta on 03/14/2019
Loved it coming back next year.People are all friendly,unit great,condo property always kept perfect,but most of all always have a great time.

Great view

by William on 03/14/2019
Great view of the ocean, able to watch whales and dolphins from the lanai everyday. Walking distance to downtown Kona. The kitchen needs a little updating, frig is on the small size and need some better knives and other kitchen necessities. Everything else is great.


by John on 03/13/2019


by Deanne on 03/13/2019
My family loved the amazing sunsets every night! Loved watching the dolphins and surfers every morning while sitting on the deck with our coffee and breakfast!! We saw turtles every day also. Had plenty of room for our family of 6. Would rent again if we would make it back to Hawaii again!!

Comfortable and quiet, great location

by Kari on 03/12/2019
Really loved this upstairs unit and property as a whole. It was very quiet and calm. Mostly older folks staying or living there either part or full time. Many people gathered at the sea wall every night at sunset for drinks, dinner or simply to watch the beautiful sunset. We rushed home each night so we wouldn't miss it and enjoyed mingling with others. Good partial view of the ocean from the lanai. Comfortable king sized bed. Sleeper sofa was nice.

Beautiful & peaceful! Easy access!

by Cheryl on 03/12/2019
Wonderful place to stay! Loved our vacation!

Perfect location! Great facility

by Diane on 03/12/2019
We greatly enjoyed this Home Away. The location was great for access both North and South of Kona. It was quiet, had all the amenities for beaching so you didn’t need to bring your own. Loved barbecuing dinner down by the beach. Even if your room doesn’t have a full view you get to watch the sunset while cooking or just enjoying the area on the water they maintain for guests. We would definitely return .

Exactly what we wanted

by Rebecca on 03/12/2019
We were very pleased with our decision to stay here. Although small, it had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable, the condo was clean and there were plenty of fluffy white towels. The location was perfect! Thanks

Home was great for the cost. Sunsets are amazing from the Master suit

by Rebecca on 03/12/2019
Love the layout and the wonderful outdoor setting area. Only wish the Pool was heated. We only rent homes with pools and unfortunately the pool was way too cold to use. The spa is on a timer and you can only have the heater on or the jets on but not at the same time. It was difficult to use and found we had to use the spa to cool off due to the Pool tempature being to cold. Breaker for the spa kept defaulting therefore had to call the Kona Property Manager several times. They were wonderful at helping but had to relay on the availability of the Pool Company to reset. Great home for the price if the pool would have been heated. Always wonderful being in Hawaii. Aloha.

We had a delightful time at Kona Makai!

by Michael on 03/11/2019
Right away we loved the Zen decor in the condo. We enjoyed early morning coffee on the lanai, and fell asleep every night listening to the waves. The condo itself was nicely appointed, and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We noticed that the community and camaraderie of many of the guests made us feel so at home. We enjoyed getting to know the regulars who come there. The grounds are beautifully landscaped , and the maintenance people obviously care very much for doing their jobs, and are so friendly. We will come back soon and stay here again. Mahalo, the Doherty's from Denver, Colorado.

Direct oceanfront, spacious, 2 bdrm/2 bath

by Doug And Carol on 03/11/2019
My husband and I always enjoy staying at A-27 "Hang Ten". Breathtaking views day and night! Everything you need and want in a vacation "home-away-from-home" is waiting for you. Owner responded immediately with our concern and took care of the issue through the management company. Walking distance to town. Mahalo!

Beautiful condo!

by Jim Sue on 03/11/2019
This was our 5th year spending an extended time on the Big Island. This condo is wonderful. We had several family members visit during our stay and everyone agrees. It was so nice to have multiple seating options in the living room and many included recliners! The lanai was so nice with the cushioned furniture. The cross breeze was perfect. The management company was very responsive and helpful. We miss this home away from home.


by Belinda on 03/11/2019
Our seven week stay was awesome. Condo equipped with everything we needed. Updated bathroom and plenty of towels, sheets, etc... for our stay. Brian keeps the grounds and pool area beautiful as well. It’s a very friendly atmosphere with owners/renters of the other condos. We Look forward to our stay next year in E21!

The sunset from balcony are stunning

by Jordan on 03/10/2019
Thank you so much for wonderful space to share with our family. We had wonderful time and created long lasting memories. The sunset from balcony are stunning, and we will be back next year, God willing

Clean condo, beautiful complex and good location

by Angela on 03/10/2019
Nicely maintained complex. Our condo could use updates, but was very clean and had a wonderful view.

Hawaiian vacation for a family of four

by Stephen on 03/09/2019
We had a great trip and a great stay. We were a family of four and the unit worked out perfectly for our needs. It was not on on the shoreline but the beach was only a few steps away. Every night we walked to the beach and watched the sunset. The pool was behind our unit and we used the available grills to cook our meals most evenings. The grocery store and drug store were just a few minutes away around the corner, so we had all we needed at our finger tips. This unit had air conditioning but we barely used it. We just opened the windows and enjoyed the Hawaii shore winds. The unit was clean and was fully supplied with everything we needed. We did have a drain that wasn't working correctly, so we called the management and they quickly came and fixed the problem. We look forward to coming back again!!!

Wonderful and clean

by Tim on 03/09/2019
Beautiful condo, everything we needed was available. Beach towels, cooler, beach chairs, etc. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Couldn't ask for anything better. Great place.

Beautiful condo unit

by Barrie on 03/08/2019
We have been staying here for the last 9 nights. The condo is a top floor unit and is beautifully renovated and decorated. Five minute drive to Kahaluu Beach which is awesome for snorkeling. Very close to the Sheraton Resort and Keauhou Shopping Centre. The only drawback with this unit is the traffic noise is constant. The location is on the corner of the street leading to the Sheraton as well as a marina and the traffic is non stop all day long. If you are just looking for a base and intend on being out of the condo most of the time, this place is great. If you’re looking for quiet and seclusion this is not the best choice.

Clean, quiet, convenient, relaxing, nice decor

by Troy on 03/08/2019
This is a beautiful rental unit. I would say I am quite picky and everything was perfect. The unit was very clean, with a very well equipped kitchen, excellent quality linens , I feel like it was professionally decorated, lots of beach accessories like boogie boards, snorkel gear, chairs, umbrella, pool noodles and even a wagon that had others we were travelling with envious as their unit didn't have a wagon. Ample towels, 2 sets of bedding for every bed. Attention to detail such as plenty of pillows on the beautiful sectional and throw blankets as well. Granite countertops throughout and so much more. A laminated map of the island with various points of interest. The main pool area was only a two minute walk away and has a hot tub, BBQ's, and tons of lay down lawn chairs. 10 minutes to Hapuna Beach and there is a market close by with various shops and a grocery store. Only 35 minutes to Kona. This place was awesome and afforded us exactly what we needed to have a relaxing stress free vacation. We loved every minute of being in this unit.


by Leslie on 03/07/2019
We very much enjoyed our stay at this wonderfully designed Lucky Bennett house! Besides being close to Kailua-Kona, Keauhou Bay, Captain Cook and the airport, it offered just about everything a guest could ask for. The pool was crystal clear and refreshing, the view was spectacular and the bird activity made you feel as if you were living in a jungle. The master bedroom and en suite were lovely and private. The additional two bedrooms were more than adequate for our other three guests. We felt right at home in the well-equipped kitchen and beautiful living room. But, most of our time was spent outside on the lanai! Every afternoon, we gathered on the lanai for one last swim of the day, a cocktail, BBQ, the sunset, stargazing and even whale-watching. It doesn't get any better than that!

It was like two months in Paradise

by Tom on 03/07/2019
This was our second two month stay at Kona Isle and we hope to return. Our first stay the unit we rented had not been updated and was in bad condition, but the development itself was so spectacular we returned. B38 where we rented this year was spectacular. It is in a great location for viewing and hearing the ocean. We have rented in many many different places, B38 is one of the best furnished and supplied we have encountered. We had one slight internet issue and Kona Coast was quick to resolve the problem. We had a great two months.

Absolute Oceanfront - Beautiful Location

by Thomas on 03/06/2019
I rate the Condo 4 stars, the location 5 stars. Kona Reef was built in the 1970's so all units have some age issues. D33 has been refurbished and is in very good shape. Condo has everything anyone would need. Being able to walk to town, restaurants, or sit on your lanai, reading, watching turtles and this year many whale sightings is fabulous.

Sunsets and More!

by Deborah on 03/06/2019
This condo provides one of the best locations for sunsets on the island. We enjoyed nightly. There were a couple of maintenance glitches that were not resolved when we were there but the condo lives up to it's hype. We also took advantage of the cooler, booogie boards, and snorkels for guests and had a great time. This condo is literally 20 minutes from 4 fabulous beaches for swimming and snorkling. We were also able to see whales from the lanai several times, once coming within 200 yards of this condo. Mahalo, HomeAway, it was a great getaway!

we enjoyed our time

by Robert A. on 03/06/2019
Mauna Lani Terrace D203 was very suitable for our stay and we enjoyed our time there We have the same unit reserved for arrival in 11/19 and are looking forward to re-occupying it. The most significant criticism I would offer about this unit has to do with the non-standard sinks in the master and guest bedroom bathrooms. These are bowl-style sinks mounted on top of the counters. The height of the rim of all the sinks is at an awkward level, and none of them had stoppers which would permit filling of the bowl. Your Maintenance Department graciously provided some rubber, cover-type stoppers, but these only worked for the guest bathroom sink. Recommendation: remove these counter top bowls and replace them with flush-mounted conventional sinks. Other than that, we only had to supplement the supplies in the unit with a few items (cutting board, candle holders, dish rack). The kitchen knives could use sharpening. The kitchen window could use a wash. All these are small concerns compared to the overall attractiveness of this unit. Thank you for offering Mauna Lani Terrace D203 for rental. We look forward to our return there in November.

Stayed a month

by Kim A on 03/06/2019
Perfect location, had a wonderful time. Condo was well stocked in pans, dishes, glasses. Just had everything for the kitchen. Only problem we had is that we didn’t want to go home. Thanks for the use of your home.


by Daniel on 03/05/2019
Location was right in front of a Kahalu'u beach, a nice snorkeling location, and the kitchen was well stocked for cooking.

We had a great stay

by Kristi on 03/04/2019
he condo was super clean, super quiet, and super spacious. There were boogie boards, an umbrella, and beach chairs which was awesome! The bed and pillows were really comfortable. We even had a welcome “basket” upon arrival that was filled with great essentials. We hope to be back soon!

A real joy

by Matt on 03/04/2019
Clean, right on the ocean and close to Kona! It was a real joy staying here.

What a wonderful location!

by Violet on 03/04/2019
his is the second time we've stayed in Hali'i Kai 10E and it certainly did not disappoint. We were very satisfied the first time, but this time was only enhanced by new pots & pans & knives. We LOVE cooking (so these were greatly appreciated) and enjoyed every evening we could bbq and use the lanai w/the accordion doors. Watching whale every morning while sipping coffee after a very peaceful nights' rest on extremely comfortable beds. There were plenty of beach chairs, towels, equipment for us to use. The only minor suggestion I would have would be an upgraded cooler. But this certainly did not take away anything from our experience. Mahalo for a wonderful vacation! We will be back!

High recommend

by Mercer on 03/04/2019
Outstanding service and follow up. We highly recommend and will use Kona Coast Vacations in future. Keep up the good work!

First time staying at a Kohala Coast resort

by Jules on 03/04/2019
It was my first time staying at a Kohala Coast resort rather than in Kailua-Kona, but I liked the location, amenities of the area, and the unit. Downsides are the lack of a grocery store and the greater driving distance from the airport and the vibe of Kailua-Kona. But this location is closer to the North Shore, Waimea and the Hilo coast and Volcanoes Park.

Our vacation was perfect

by Ron on 03/04/2019
This was or third time at Casa de Emdeko #335. As usual, our vacation was perfect. This condo is well equipped and very comfortable. King size bed, large soaker tub and large shower were appreciated. The entertainment (tv) was top notch, to keep up with the news. Wifi was excellent. The kitchen has everything you could want, and the appliances are first class. The living room has a couch and loveseat and two amazing leather chairs with matching ottomans that are very comfortable. The lanai is equally well furnished and the view from here is fantastic! We spent much time on the lanai watching whales play right out front of the complex. Three Weber gas BBQs are located in the common area with plenty of tables, umbrellas and chairs. There is a large gazebo with a large wet bar and refrigerator. Right on the shoreline, is a large salt water pool and farther back in the common area, is a freshwater pool. There is a sun tanning area like a beach with sand. The grounds are impeccably well kept! It's been six years since our last visit, and I've noticed many upgrades. Even though this complex is mature, it is still one of the best, and classiest condos in the area. The location is great too. It is easy to tell that the owners take pride in their unit. We thoroughly enjoyed our Kona vacation 2019, and would love to return again!

Little Gem By The Ocean

by Greg on 03/03/2019
Our Family stayed at this condo from Feb 13/2019 - Feb 28/2019, Overall it was an excellent Condo, clean, well kept, all appliances in good working order, great ocean view !! The pool and hot tub are great, 4 BBQ's conveniently located in park area along with several picnic tables. The grounds are well kept and clean. The condo is located close to town and shopping. There is no air conditioning, but we kept windows open and fans on and we felt very comfortable. We will definitely be returning !!


by Sheila on 03/03/2019
We enjoyed every part of our stay. The rooms were spacious, the kitchen was fully stocked and the lanai with barbecue was very large. Clean and very quiet. We hope to return next year. Thank you for the lovely time.

Loved our stay.....It was lovely, comfortable and clean.

by Erika on 03/02/2019
We loved our stay at Kona Coast! It was lovely, comfortable and clean. We especially enjoyed that the ocean was just a few paces from our lanai! Not sure if it's easy to tell from the photos but yes there is a washer/dryer in the condo which is super convenient. Plenty of appliances for cooking plus boogie boards and beach chairs. Thanks Kona Coast!

The condo was spotless and fully stocked!

by Christine on 03/02/2019
Spacious enough for 6 people. Location was great for us. Supermarket just down the block and close to Kahalu'u beach park where there's lots of fishes to see while snorkeling. All 3 pools have hot tub. Even though it's on Ali'i Drive, we couldn't hear noise from the street. The lanai was nice to relax. BBQ grill was spotless with plenty of propane. Beds were comfy. We would stay here again!

It was very comfortable and safe since it is in a gated community!

by Roxanne on 03/02/2019
This is a beautiful home. It was very comfortable and safe since it is in a gated community. My family and I enjoyed our stay immensely. The kitchen is well appointed with 2 dishwashers and a gas range. There is a coffee grinder there and the knives were a joy to use! There were beach chairs but no boogie boards.

The property is well maintained, very well appointed and beautifully manicured

by Steven on 03/02/2019
The house was great and we really enjoyed our stay. The property is well maintained, very well appointed and beautifully manicured. We really enjoyed sitting on the lanai, swimming in the the pool, and relaxing while our kids were able play in the yard.

The condo was amazing!

by Stephani on 03/02/2019
It had everything we needed to have a great vacation.

Great place, very helpful staff, very clean!

by Andrew on 03/02/2019
Thanks so much the place was great would be happy to rent from you again!

We enjoyed our stay tremendously! Lots of fun memories made!

by Stephanie on 03/02/2019
Good location. Just south of Town of Kona. Lots of space in home. Comfy beds and bed towels. Fun pool floats and beach toys (we did buy more for the house).

Beautiful unit, exactly as advertised and photographed!

by Tim on 03/02/2019
Superbly managed by KCV. Thanks for an awesome stay in Keahou!


by David on 03/02/2019
We again enjoyed our stay at Keauhou Resort # 143 for the month of February. This was our third extended stay in the same unit. It is close enough to the ocean and to the shopping mall for us to enjoy our daily walks and to grab our supplies. The condo has all the amenities that one would need. The 2 showers are a bonus. It's nice to see that a new comfortable couch has been purchased since last year when we stayed here. KRV was great--when a problem was noticed with the retractable awning, workers were quickly sent out to repair the issue. The electric BBQ was used quite often and worked well-- perhaps a small table could be purchased and placed by the BBQ for the " chef " to use for the utensils and plates. Also, an outdoor light above the BBQ would sure be helpful. BBQ ing in the dark using a flashlight was an interesting experience! Our relaxing times on the spacious lanai were generally enjoyable; however, the presence of barking dogs on either side of us deterred us from fully enjoying our time. Two dogs in the unit beside us barked whenever somebody went by the front of the units and , in the unit on the other side of us, another dog yapped continuously whenever its owners left for the day  which was almost every day. We suspect that the dog owners do own their units and are not renters, so prospective renters for unit # 143 should be aware that there probably won't be much peace and quiet during the day time. A thorough cleaning of the unit is needed; the " shag " rugs are not the best and, in our opinion, are not needed. The flat spaces above the the kitchen cupboards were quite dusty and we spent some time giving that area a good cleaning. With all that in  mind, we conclude by saying that the positives sure outweigh the negatives. We did enjoy our stay at Keauhou Resort # 143. The greatest drawback for us was the lack of peace and quiet due to the presence of these 3 small, yappy dogs. 

A beautiful setting, great location,we hope to return!

by Joann on 03/02/2019
The condo was just as the photos show; lovely decor, nice, well stocked kitchen, comfortable bed, nicely remodeled bathroom. The ceiling fans were utilized every day, no need for the air conditioning available in bedroom in case of too much heat. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub as well! Loved hanging on the lanai in the mornings and evenings. This is a great unit!

Beautiful place

by Pauline on 03/02/2019
The view at this place is amazing! Very comfortable with all the amenities we needed.

Enjoyed our Stay

by Roshelle on 03/01/2019
I did leave a 5 star review. We really did enjoy our stay. We did leave some additional spices in the cupboard for the next guest to assist in their stay. The only feedback… the BBQ is about done. The bottom is rusted out, and catches fire VERY easily. I would say that it would just need a good cleaning, but I’m afraid the entire bottom will fall out of it if you try.
Aloha & thank you for taking the time to send us this review - it's very much appreciated! Please be assured that your concern about the BBQ has been shared with our management team to be addressed - again, we appreciate the feedback!

Amazing home with fabulous views

by Kurt on 03/01/2019
The home was truly lovely with fabulous amenities in a great location. The house and grounds were very well cared for — the appliances, kitchen, pool, bathrooms, furniture, electronics and floors were all top notch. The open floor plan and outdoor living spaces were perfect for what we wanted. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was we had an issue with the hot water where we had difficulty getting it to heat up properly. The property management firm, Kona Coast Vacations, was great however and really worked hard to get the issue resolved. The team was very responsive and followed up regularly to ensure the problem was addressed to our satisfaction. I would not hesitate to stay there again or with another property managed by them.

amazing stay

by Abbey on 03/01/2019
Thank you for an amazing stay. We really enjoyed the condo and had a great family vacation

We loved watching the whales while eating dinner on the lanai

by Robert on 03/01/2019
The sunsets were spectacular as well. The Penthouse unit is a 2 bedroom & 2 bath unit, with a large open living room, dining room and kitchen, which face the ocean view. The kitchen is well stocked except for the number of glasses. The soap dispenser in the dishwasher only worked correctly about a 1/3 of the time, otherwise everything was fine. As mentioned in other reviews (and we were aware of this before renting the unit) there is an open beam ceiling through the entire unit and the bedroom walls only go up 8’. So there is not much privacy between bedrooms. All of this said, we had a great time. You are literally right across the street (Alii Drive) from the Kahaluu Park and beach, where there is great snorkeling. We saw turtles, eels, octopus, beautiful coral, and lots of colorful fish. The right side of the beach is reserved for surfing and you can rentvsurf boards right down the street. There is no boogie boarding available here though. The unit is about 4 1/2 miles from “downtown Kona”, but only about a mile from a shopping center, grocery store and good restaurants. When staying here I would recommend having a rental car. The unit has a beach towel for each guest (maximum of 4 guests) but no other beach equipment. Access to the unit is by steps or a slow elevator. But the elevator was handy when checking in & out with all of luggage and groceries. It was hard to leave the Penthouse and we look forward to returning some day. Thank you for sharing your fun home.

Great place to stay!

by Kayleen on 03/01/2019
We enjoyed our stay in unit 401. Amazing views, whale watching in winter, surfing in front of the lanai to watch, great ocean sounds, beautiful decor. and well stocked kitchen. Three bedrooms is a plus, but back 2 bedrooms do get some street noise. Pool does not get much sun, if that is important to you.

Great Family Accomodations

by Anonymous on 03/01/2019
Our little family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This condo was clean and well equipped and had plenty of space for us. Good pool and small gym in the complex a short walk from the unit. The location was great too. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful and relaxing!!

by Jerry on 03/01/2019
Drinking our morning coffee, watching swimmers, rowing teams, paddle boarders, dolphins and whales is a great way to start the day! The beauty was spectacular from dawn until sunset - wish we were still there! Our unit was first class and the location was perfect. We were super close to downtown with dining and galleries. This location is in our top 5 of favorite places we have visited. Look forward to returning.

Fantastic condo!

by Karl on 03/01/2019
The condo was very clean and had been recently renovated. It had a washer and dryer which, as a mom of a 7 month old, came in very handy! The condo is a 5 minute walk to the best beach for surfing and a short drive to a good swimming beach. We were within walking distance from a little mall with a drug store, grocery store, a bank, restaurant and a few souvenir shops. The pool at the condo was very nice and so were the tennis courts. It would just be nice if there were rackets to rent/borrow because we do not have room to travel with our own rackets. The only unfortunate thing about being on Ali’i Drive is that it is a very busy road all the time. Traffic is crazy and you need to allow yourself more time than you think to get places. Over all the condo was awesome, very homey.

Amazing location and condo

by Donna on 03/01/2019
We were so impressed with this condo and resort, it is exactly as advertised. It is an updated unit and is well equipped with everything you need for a great stay. The resort is well maintained and quiet. This unit is second from the ocean and we loved to watch the dolphins and whales during the day and spectacular sunsets all from the lanai. We had the best vacation and would definitely return to this property in the future.


by Sherri on 03/01/2019
Waikoloa Village Colony 2406 condo was very nice and met our needs. It was very clean, had small appliances, kitchen utensils, and washer and dryer for our use. It was conveniently located to the town of Kona and other routes to tour any and all areas of the island. Would recommend this unit to others. Thanks.

Perfectly situated for the sunset

by Karen on 02/28/2019
My family of 5 adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The condo had everything we needed and was well maintained. The neighborhood affords a beautiful ocean front walk and proximity to restaurants and shopping. Only thing that could have made it better, converting the twin beds to a king. Oh and a longer stay!

Amazing time....5 Stars!

by Amrita on 02/26/2019
Thank you - we had an amazing time in Kona at Surf & Racquet. The beautiful views - watching whales from the deck, the great kitchen to cook delicious meals, great linens, proximity to grocery, super washer/dryer in unit - i can go on and on. FIVE STARS

Pleasant surprises and unexpected amenities made this a perfect house for our group!

by Sherri on 02/26/2019
The pool and lanai with its fabulous views west down the hill and over the water quickly became the center point for our gatherings - whether sun or rain. The house was gated at the end of the driveway and once through, was beautifully landscaped. Though we were told there would be minimal soap/shampoo/towels, etc., there were plenty of these in each bathroom. We just washed the extra towels we used in the large sized washer & dryer. The kitchen amenities were plentiful and high quality - everything we would need. The beds were comfortable. Kona Coast was extremely helpful throughout - from booking to checkout ... even calling when we arrived and before we left to check with us about any needs.

The place was wonderful and the location is great!

by Andrea on 02/26/2019
The staff was very thoughtful and nice. Clean place, great views and nice towels. comfy and i did like their interior design. Thanks!

Love the units location

Love the units location


by Laurie on 02/26/2019
Great location with the sea practically at your feet. Very private lanai. Well appointed condo. Close to town and water activities

Uninterrupted ocean view was amazing

by Les on 02/26/2019
Sea Village 2102 was a very pleasant stay for us. It was clean, with all appliances in good working order. Great location in easy walking distance to Kailua town.

Beautiful home in a great area!

by Carol on 02/25/2019
Highly recommend staying in this amazing home. It's in a great location if you love the beach, whale-watching, and golf. All the amenities you'll need to be comfortable. Quiet, peaceful location.

This place has EVERYTHING!!

by Jessica on 02/24/2019
Best location on the island. I've stayed at a lot of places, and this was my favorite. The kids loved it! Spent a lot of time at the beaches. Can't wait to come back to this same place!


by Becky on 02/24/2019
Our second visit and we will come back again to sit on the patio and watch the sunset. Don’t miss TJ Bar-b-q for take out and a meal on the patio. (Within walking distance). Huggo’s, Fosters, and Lava Lava were our favorites.

Great home for 4 couples

by Peter on 02/24/2019
Stayed w my wife and 3 other couples - house was great!

Clean, cool, and inviting

by Wendy on 02/24/2019
Everything you need, boogie boards, umbrellas, extra sunscreen. Attentive booking agent, 24/7 tech support. Pool and hot tub were close, clean, and intimate. Felt like a guest, not a number


by Alexander on 02/24/2019
Great property and location. Wonderful views. Only complaint is that internet was slow and unreliable.


by Dianna on 02/23/2019
Fabulous all around! Vacay!!!

by Jann on 02/23/2019
We had a fabulous stay. Your place is top-drawer in every way. We hope to come again and play. In the condo that has the best VACAY!

Saw spinner dolphins and humpback whales from our lanai!

by Deborah on 02/23/2019
Best feature of this property is the location. Our uni had an unobstructed view of Kailua Bay. We saw spinner dolphins and humpback whales from the lanai every day of our stay. The unit was as advertised, but be advised there is no elevator or air conditioning. One big negative is that the bedrooms overlook the parking lot so it can be really noisy early am if you have the windows open.

Super lovely space and location!

by Sara on 02/23/2019
I stayed here with a mix of friends and family for my 40th birthday and absolutely loved the house and space. It has a wonderful flow of indoor and outdoor space and works well for a larger group. Had all the amenities we needed plus some beach gear we weren't expecting which was helpful. The lanai is wonderful looking out at the ocean and sunsets. A couple things to be aware of: from the master bedroom you hear traffic noise in the mornings but it's not very noticeable in the rest of the house andit's not very close to the ocean, but you can see and hear it. Super lovely space and vacation, thank you for helping to make my bday trip so wonderful!

Awesome condo with a great location!

by Shelley on 02/23/2019
It is exactly as pictured.

Clean, Great View

by Connie on 02/23/2019
Enjoyed watching for whales, the sunsets, and, of course, the golfers. Liked the over all location, easy walk to harbor, grocery store, just to walk. One slight problem of ants was solved immediately.


by Atsuko on 02/23/2019
We all enjoyed this property

The views......

by Andy on 02/22/2019
Hale Pohaku #1 was incredible, the views are breathtaking. My jaw hit the floor when we walked in the door, and then you step out on the lani and feel like you are standing over the rocks and surf below. Just from our lani we were able to watch turtles on the rocks, and dolphins and wales coming and going every day. And the sunsets are just stunning. The condo itself was great, very spacious and lots of storage. We had four adults and never seemed lacking for space, especially when you slide open the wall of doors that seperate the living space and the lanai. The condo was well stocked in the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. We were missing beach towels when we showed up, but they were brought over shortly after we had made the discovery. There was plenty of snorkel gear for the four of us as well. There is a great little beach area just around the point to the north of the condo, and can be accessed by a private gate from the condo grounds. Lots of tide pools and wading areas with turtles, eels, crabs, and all kinds of colorful fish. A local farmer's style market is a short walk north of the condo. When we booked I was contacted by a concierge, David, from the property management company. If David (or whomever from Kona Concierge) reaches out and offers assistance or a recommendation, TAKE IT! David was great and pushed us to book the things we wanted to do early in the week, that way if there were cancellations we had a better shot at rebooking later in the week. We were treated to unusually high wind and tides our first 3 days on island, so everything was cancelled (snorkel tours, scuba dives, manta night dives, summit star gazing). David and his team worked to get everything re-booked and the only thing we missed was because we decided not to re-book. They made all the calls, they made all the new arrangements, and they communicated with us the entire time. David and Kona Concierge were awesome and allowed us to enjoy our vacation when the weather had other plans. The only thing I thought was missing from the condo/complex was a grill. None of us really wanted to turn the stove or oven on to cook, but a grill would have gotten some use.

Absolutely gorgeous

by Rhonda on 02/20/2019
Absolutely gorgeous home in a very desirable neighborhood. The home is designed and decorated very beautifully causing us to not want to venture out much or leave the premises while vacationing there ~ For us, it was Heaven-In-A-House. All the en-suites are very private and the house is very spacious with a dream kitchen for cooking. My only complaint is that the hot-tub wasnt operating while we were there but was fixed and operating the morning we left. Thank You Halele’a, you truly are A House Of Joy!

Great place to stay with your big family!

by Gigi on 02/19/2019
The kitchen is well equipped, and the location is close to the Kahaluu Beach for snorkeling or just steps to the Keauhou Bay to join various of snorkel tours. Only one unpleasant experience is that the water heater didn't work at first except the only one in one bathroom, but the staff at the office helped us to solve the problem a.s.a.p. Thanks a lot!

Everything was wonderful--thank you for having us stay!

by Kristen on 02/19/2019
This condo was fantastic. Everything was as pictured, right on the water, could not have asked for a more lovely vacation home. The local artwork in every room was an unexpected bonus. The beds were soft, there were plenty of linens and towels, location was convenient to Kailua-Kona, and easy access to the rest of the island. The management staff was courteous and helpful, including setting up several activities. I would definitely stay here again. Of note, the arrival instructions from the rental company said to not trust map apps to find the property accurately (directions were provided). However, (Hidden by Airbnb) maps' location for this property was accurate.


by Laurie on 02/19/2019
Great place! Clean, comfortable, beautiful ocean view and good location!

Very clean and well-furnished

by Chet on 02/19/2019
Very clean and well-furnished unit overlooking the pond behind King's Marketplace. Watched a Nene (state bird) family on the golf course below every morning. Waikoloa Resort is an excellent location for visiting A-Bay and beaches on the Kohala Coast with easy access to Waimea and the volcano area. Can walk to King's and Queen's Marketplaces where there are always things going on and several eating choices.


by David on 02/19/2019

2 pools,amazing ocean view from balcony and very clean unit

by Deborah on 02/19/2019
The unit 333 that we stayed in was clean and had washer and dryer fridge, stove and dishwasher in unit. The rule book was a bit large and a bit overwhelming. The first night we got there we had been shooshed by our neighbor at 10:10pm. We weren’t playing loud music or any music for that matter. Sitting on our balcony having a cocktail. That was a bit disappointing. The grounds are kept immaculately daily. The bbqs are in a common area so are shared often ,so if you are a vegetarian that might be an issue. The rule book said you must remove your garage daily, yet we were only given 5 bags and were staying 16 days. We also were given 3 rolls of TP and 3 dishwasher pods. The recycling area is very convenient but there is another notice to recycle quietly. The overall experience was a good one. I’m thinking that we were a bit too young (50sand our son was 17) for this complex. Maybe in a few year we will fit in as most residents are in bed by 8pm. Lights out on the grounds at 10.
Mahalo for the review~!  We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in unit 333. Casa de Emdeko is a quiet property in which guests do settle in early and that does appeal to many. On your next visit, please contact our reservations team & we'll be able to find a great property to fit your needs.  A complimentary starter pack of supplies is furnished and any supplies needed beyond that are to be supplied by the guest.  We look forward to welcoming you back the next time your travels bring you back to the Big Island.

Best equipped home we have ever rented

by Nadine on 02/19/2019
We have just returned from our stay at the Golf Villas this February. Our unit was L5 It was a 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo with plenty of space for our family. It was unanimous amongst my family members that this accommodation was by far the best equipped home we have ever rented on vacation The kitchen was equipped with enough appliances from blenders to rice cookers to crock pots, that we felt as tho all our needs we happily met The owners had supplied the bare essentials such as seasonings, oils, shampoo and laundry detergent etc... even coffee filters which I have seen overlooked in other properties before Bedrooms were clean and comfortable with extra linens and pillows, blankets and beach towels The cleanliness of our unit was pleasantly impressive but be aware of the tiny tiny ants that happily occupy anything left out on the counter. At all times we felt safe and comfortable allowing our family to enjoy the amenities offered at the complex. The pool and spa was a perfect way to finish our day reminiscing and soaking under the stars There were 4 adults and 2 teens on our stay and it was agreed that we would happily return here, preferably longer than 10 days next time. So... thanks again for another memorable visit to the island. Enough good words just can’t be spoken about our stay

Fantastic place to stay with a group!

by Amanda on 02/19/2019
The house had absolutely anything we may have needed. Very clean and great location!

Great place for a vacation

by Debi on 02/19/2019
Great place for a vacation! Condo & view are fabulous. Kona coast is always available to help if you have any issues & all the reps are very nice!!

Enjoyable place to stay

by Roy on 02/18/2019
Very well run property management, great facilities, and great condo in nice location.

A really beatiful place

by Anonymous on 02/18/2019
We stayed at the Bay Watch house in February with a group of seven. The house is very comfortable in a breathtaking location on Keahou Bay. It's literally sitting over the bay; you can't beat the location or the views. The house is very comfortable and roomy, even for a good-sized group. The location and property management are top notch. The only reason I didn't give it a five-star was the cook top was almost impossible to figure out (the maintenance man helped us out with that) and the pool was too cold to swim in. I know pools in Hawaii generally aren't heated, but it was February so the daytime temps didn't give it much in the way of warming. Other than that, you'll definitely enjoy your stay here!

Beautiful location

by Nancy on 02/18/2019
We have stayed in this location twice and it is such an oasis. Our son, his wife and two grandchildren were with us. While there are many sights to see on the island, the yard and pool were great for the children! The home is beautifully furnished, clean. Having the master on one end of the house and the two bedrooms on the other gave great separattion. Nice quiet neighborhood. I would definitely stay here again when we return to the Big Island!

Amazing view & location!

by Dan on 02/17/2019
Enjoyed watching whales and dolphins almost every day. Such a beautiful and relaxing balcony view. Short walk to downtown shopping and you will find wonderful restaurants starting right next door. Condo seems to be newly furnished and the bed is super comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed. So glad we found it, thanks so much!

Fussy traveler review

by Thomas W on 02/17/2019
Long story short, I would stay again. Very well equipped kitchen, good location, wonderful view.

Can't wait to come back!

by Becky on 02/17/2019
Our family had a fabulous stay and everything could not have gone smoother! Great information was provided at every step from booking to directions and how to enter and exit the unit! Appreciated the calls prior to our stay and after our arrival to make sure all was going well! The unit was lovely and very well furnished with everything we could have needed! Can’t wait to come back!

Great quiet location

by Clint on 02/17/2019
Great quiet location. Room was sparkling clean, spacious and comfortable. Fantastic lanai surrounding the entire area with great deck furniture to relax in after a day of discovery. Grill on the lanai was very convenient.

This place is wonderful and everything we were looking for....highly reccommend!!!!

by Cricket on 02/16/2019
The sound of the waves lulled us to sleep at night and we saw whales from the balcony. The sunsets were beautiful as well. We had a problem with the WiFi (storm related) and they immediately came to fix it and called us later to make sure everything was ok. I would definitely go back and can highly recommend this vacation rental.

Hali i Kai 8F is a beautiful condo in a beautiful location!

by James on 02/16/2019
This was my fourth stay at this development and was very enjoyable.

Great for family.....quiet neighborhood!

by Xuanqian on 02/16/2019
Very nice home at a quiet neighborhood, view to the ocean and Kona airport, great for family and group of people want to get away from noisy city and enjoy the relaxing time.

Looks just as in the pictures.....planning our next time back!!!!

by Ameeta on 02/16/2019
Casa de Emdeko is a very well maintained and beautiful condo complex. Our unit had been renovated and was very comfortable and quiet. Looks just as in the pictures. The garden courtyard with fountain was lovely to listen to as we had our morning coffee on the lanai. Then condo was very comfortable and had everything you would need. The sandy area by the ocean and saltwater pool was great for sitting at any time to watch the boats go by and we saw whales and dolphins!! Definitely recommend trying it! We are already planning our next time back!

Very nice unit in a quiet complex.

by David on 02/16/2019
Very nice unit in a quiet complex. We enjoyed use of the beach towels, cooler and the outdoor grills at the complex.

Waking up to the ocean and spending time on the balcony was amazing!

by Scott on 02/16/2019
Fantastic view! Waking up to the ocean and spending time on the balcony was amazing! Very much enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend.


by 재원 on 02/16/2019
Wonderful Place!!!

Wonderful Condo

by Margaret on 02/16/2019
This was a perfect condo for two couples. We really liked the floor plan. It was quite. Very clean. Beds very comfortable. Pool, tennis courts and gym all great. Like the central location to so many shops and restaurants. The managing agent was very responsive to all questions we had and quickly came to fix the wifi on the day when we arrived. Would stay here again.

This place blew me away!!!!!!

by Meghan on 02/16/2019
This place blew me away. Super nice and the bed was amazing. My husband has bad back problems and he absolutely loved this bed. We are looking for this same bed in our home town. Great location. Very clean. Felt just like home.

I highly recommend this condo and would definitely stay here again!!!!

by Annie on 02/16/2019
Sweeping ocean views in an excellent location walking distance to many shops & restaurants as well as a small beach. The home is well furnished with everything needed to cook a full meal, including a few spices. We especially appreciated the beach chairs and coolers that made it easy to spend a day exploring. Whenever we visit Kona, we stay at the Kona Reef and this was one of our favorite condos with comfortable beds, nice showers, and sparkling clean. Having two bathrooms was also convenient for a group of four after a day of hiking or swimming.

Big Island adventure

by Dorte on 02/15/2019
We had a lovely 2 weeks at Kahaluu Bay, Surf and Racquet Club. The condo is extremely well equipped for cooking. Bedrooms are both very comfortable, nice to have 2 king beds. Lanai has great views of the sunsets. We would certainly rent this condo again.

Great house!

by Doug on 02/15/2019
Great house, great location, great memories for a "last trip" for my aging parents and siblings. The only comment I would add is that the pool was pretty cold so it was used sparingly.

A nice unit at Golf Villas

by Mary Beth on 02/15/2019
The unit is second floor with a third floor loft and getting luggage up the steep stairs on the first day was a little daunting. But, after that, we loved it! The unit is beautifully furnished and I especially liked that it has a toaster oven in the kitchen so I didn’t have to use the big oven every day. Nice view of the golf course and sunset.


by Anne on 02/14/2019
Mauna Lani Terrace J101 was everything the photos promised and more.The home is beautiful; the location could not be better - peaceful views of the fish ponds and ocean, easy walk to the Beach Club and a pool. The general location is well away from touristy Kailua yet an easy drive to stores, restaurants and activities. Kona Coast Vacations was seamless to work with.

Cleanly. Homey. Beautiful.

by Lindsey on 02/14/2019
Wonderful stay. The setting is lovely and we wanted for nothing. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Beautiful unit located within a comfortable community

by Charles on 02/14/2019
I would definitely stay here again.


by Dennis on 02/13/2019
We really enjoyed our stay at The Shores at Waikoloa. The condo was clean with all the amenities necessary for a great holiday in beautiful Hawaii.

clean and spacious

by William on 02/13/2019
loved the condo. great location and access. clean too. and nice views. Property management company was easy to work with as well.

Lovely setting

by Marilyn on 02/13/2019
Lovely property. We were very comfortable. The condo was spotless and had everything but pot holders. We made do with a few wash clothes. Otherwise perfect.
Aloha! On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to submit your review. We will be adding pot holders based on your feedback. On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help! We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.


by Marjorie on 02/12/2019
The townhouse is better than 5star. We're making plans for next year. Everything about the property was great.

Very clean and comfortable

by Jeanne on 02/12/2019
Our stay was wonderful. The unit was very clean and we appreciate you renting to us. I liked the privacy we had in the back of the building. The unit was updated and it was walking distance from town. The pool area is welcoming as well. Thank you!


by James on 02/12/2019
The whole family loved the place. Beautiful, spacious, met all our needs & desires.

Perfect for Kailua Kona!

by Anonymous on 02/12/2019
It is a VERY comfortable and well-equipped condo with a great view. Every night we sat on the lanai with cocktails and watched sunset after beautiful sunset. It is directly across the street from Magic Sands beach, and just a mile from one of the best snorkel sites in Kona - Kahalu'u Beach. In fact, this condo is conveniently located to do any of the activities in Kailua Kona, including the Fairwinds II morning snorkel cruise (highly recommended), shopping in Kailua, several farmers' markets, and great dining (love Huggo's). The condo complex has three Weber grills, a pool, and hot tub, in addition to two tennis courts. Perfect if you don't want a beach day. With two spacious bedrooms and a lanai, this condo is the best you can get for your money. All your needs are met here. I am already planning my return

Beautiful grounds and location

by Darrol on 02/12/2019
Loved being right on the ocean.

On entering the condo it was lovely, but.....

by Loretta on 02/11/2019
some improvements are needed to really make this unit perfect. It was very roomy and decorated beautifully! It has a very nice lanai with a wonderful view of the pool and the ocean beyond. But some improvements definitely need to made in the kitchen: One burner on the stove is unusable; the sink faucet is in dire need of replacement; and the garbage disposal is way too noisy. Also the king bedroom ceiling fan only works on high level. These are all small details in the overall value of the condo, but they were annoying to us each time they were used so it would be smart for the owner to make some repairs. Otherwise, a pretty nice place!
Aloha! On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important feedback. Please be assured that your concerns have been shared with our management team to be addressed. We appreciate you taking the time to share them with us. On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.

Nice place

by Jens on 02/11/2019
Very nice place. The apartment is kept in great condition and is well stocked.

Perfect vacations, beautiful house, the best view

by Nicolas on 02/11/2019
We absolutely loved the Kamilo House. Of all the places we’ve stayed over the years, be it Florida, Hawaii or anywhere else, it is by far the best place we’ve ever been to. We dined at home every evening, enjoying the killer view and the beautiful sunsets, while the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we could need. Bugs thrive outside, but we haven’t seen one inside the house. The cleanliness was top notch. The Big Island is indeed big, and the house is ideally located just outside Kona, making it a perfect base for all day trips around the island. While the weather was uncertain on many places around the island, we’ve got good weather throughout our stay. We could see the rain pouring on the mountains behind our neighbourhood, while we enjoyed sunshine and rainbow views at the house. On top of everything, all the dealing with Kona Coast Vacations was smooth and efficient. We can’t insist enough on how much we loved this property. It is pure bliss. Give yourself a treat and book a trip to Kona and the Beautiful Big Island of Hawai’i, staying at the Kamilo House.


by Joanna on 02/11/2019
This home is lovely! All the comforts of home in such a beautiful setting. We could not have been happier with the place, the location, and the service! Thank you for making dreams come true!

Absolutely beautiful!

by Janine on 02/11/2019
We stayed at the Shores at Waikoloa 126 Jan 28-Feb 4, 2019. The condo unit was absolutely beautiful! The unit exceeded our expectations in design and comfort. The decor was phenomenal and the location was perfect for the 3 of us. Only one concern was the bed in the master bedroom. The mattress was a little too soft for our taste and the twin beds base for the king size bed would separate a bit so we just pushed them together when they moved. We found the path to the pool quite accessible. The pool itself was lovely and had a fairly quiet atmosphere. Only one of the two pool keys would open the lock and we made a note of that for the owners. We will definitely try to book the same unit next year as it was just perfect in every way. Mahalo!

Great Stay!

by Nicholas on 02/10/2019
We had a great stay! One minor plumbing snafu but they took care of it right away. Would stay again.

Beautiful place, very clean and well kept....felt like home!

by Christie on 02/09/2019
Beautiful place, very clean and well kept. The condo had everything we could think of, including every kitchen tool one could need, movies and books for the kids, all neatly labeled. Felt like home and we wished we could stay longer! Plenty of space for our family including three young kids, although the upstairs loft got very hot. Location is great too, with excellent snorkeling nearby, as well as grocery store, drug store etc within walking distance.

NIce house, large lanai!

by Angela on 02/09/2019
Conveniently located close to Kona yet out of the way of the busy tourist area. Nice house with a large lanai. Great choice for families that can keep it quiet after 9pm because it is located in a residential neighborhood.

Everything you need......would come back again!

by Scott on 02/09/2019
I had a wonderful stay great ocean views it was stocked with everything you need including an electric grill on the deck. Close to shopping if you have a chance book a fishing outing with Bite me sport fishing request Nate as your captain we spent 6 hrs,out and caught 7 fish brought some home to have for dinner. David was are concierge that set up our trip. If you want alot of square footage this is the place to stay but be aware if you want A/C this does not have it other wise everything you need is provided had a great stay and would come back and stay longer.


by Alexey on 02/09/2019
Excellent service, location and facility! Thanks a lot! Will be back!

Pure enjoyment

by Laura on 02/08/2019
It couldn’t of been a nicer place to stay, perfect for us, clean beautiful quiet with views and condo well stocked, booking was seemless


by Teri on 02/08/2019
I have stayed at the site for years. It is a perfect location. Enjoyed this unit because of its location in the complex, the water views and tidy, comfortable furnishings. Love Kona and Love Sea Village.

Loved every second! Clean and so many amenities!

by Danielle on 02/08/2019
This was our first stay at Casa de Emdeko 323. The property was just as described, but better. The location within the complex is great. It is close to the elevator but not in a very highly trafficked area. Loved that the unit had a washer and dryer, and that boogie boards, umbrella, chairs and cooler were provided. We used all of these amenities, and boy was this place CLEAN! We've stayed in many vacation rentals and have seen the good, bad and ugly. I didn't feel like I had to clean everything as soon as we got in, and the kitchen utensils and cookware were spotless. This unit benefits from having a good stock of kitchen items, but not too many in that items go unwashed between stays. The bed is very comfortable and it was nice to have cable and roku available. The grounds are beautiful and my husband and I watched the sunset nightly from the oceanfront salt water pool. The complex is a very short trip to downtown kailua-kona and close to keauhou as well. The only room for improvement is with the sheets on the bed. They were 100% polyester. I'd recommend switching to cotton, even at a lower thread count as it became very hot to sleep on. I've already bragged about this unit to so many friends and family. We are hoping to make it back to Kona in 2021 with our extended family and will definitely look at booking this and/or another couple units managed by Kona Coast Vacations.

Beautiful ground floor unit

by Scott E on 02/07/2019
Well furnished and lots of extras, I.e. boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler and beach towels. Faces north, so the sun doesn’t beat down on you all afternoon. If you want sun, the pool is a few steps away, and A bay is a short walk. Convenient to shops and stores, as well.

Great Place to stay

by Patti on 02/07/2019
The folks at Kona Coast Vacations were great to work with -- quick responses and helpful. Our rental Hale Pohaku 1 was amazing! We've been renting through timeshare exchanges and VRBO for 30 years and this property is among the top 3 for exceeding my expectations. Spacious, incredibly well stocked (particularly the kitchen) and the location and view are incredible. Made it hard to ever want to leave to go out! Although a previous review expressed concerns about some road noise, we never found it bothersome. With the windows and doors open all night, the wonderful sound of crashing waves was all we heard. Hoping to return and rent this great place again!

Gorgeous Ocean Views

by Nick on 02/06/2019
We had a wonderful time at this rental in Kona! The condo has been beautifully updated and is well furnished and decorated. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need. The patio has the most amazing ocean view, with a surf break directly in front, allowing you to watch the surfers while you enjoy dinner and the sunset. Kona Coast Vacation rentals were very attentive and had excellent and fast communication. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Great place.....would stay again!

by Matt on 02/05/2019
Great place! Yes it does have AC but ONLY in the bedrooms and it's limited on how cool you can set it. There are worms and centipedes everywhere and often inside the house but that's probably just local area and not this property. It was a nice house and would stay again.

Very spacious and very comfortable!

by Lyndsey on 02/05/2019
The condo was great to accommodate all 5 guests , very spacious and lots of room to fit us all very comfortably. You could fit 6 guests very comfortably in this unit. We were close to the beach, but not one I would recommend for swimming. The pool was closed for a few days for renovations and you have to be quiet and out of the pool by 9 pm. The noise restrictions were a bit frustrating but overall a great location and a great experience. Would highly suggest this unit, and I will be back again for another vacation.

Everything is wonderful!

by Jessie on 02/05/2019
The unit is in front of the beach. clean, spacious, good scenery out of window. Thanks to the wonderful house, it was a pleasant family trip.

The location and view could not be better...great for multiple couples!

by Deb on 02/05/2019
A great apartment for two or three couples to share. The location and view could not be better and we so enjoyed coffee on the lanai in the mornings and wine and appetizers there in the evenings to watch the beautiful sunsets. Thekitchen is nicely stocked with plenty of plates, silverware and glassware. There are also plenty of towels, including beach towels. The Kona Coast property management team (offsite) is extremely responsive should any maintenance issues arise. We loved every minute of our stay and highly recommend it. What we didn't realize upon check-in is that there IS an elevator in the center of the complex, so you don't need to carry your luggage or groceries up the stairs...a real plus.

Good facilities and great location!

by Domenico on 02/05/2019
Big apartment with lots of space. Good facilities and great location. More access nearby. However, without a sandy beach. For access, you should wear bathing shoes, because the access is very rocky. For small children rather unsuitable, since neither sand nor unobstructed access to the sea are available. But that is a bit rare on the Big Island anyway. But otherwise 1A.

I would definitely choose this again!!!!

by Stephen on 02/05/2019
I would definitely choose this again. The community is friendly and the location is awesome. If you like to walk you would not need a car and you have awesome snorkeling right off the back of the property. The unit was clean, well apportioned and well maintained. Staff was friendly and communicated well on what to expect. All amenities were as expected.

Fantastic location, great views of the Ocean!

by Mayank on 02/05/2019
Fantastic location, great views of the Ocean. we travelled with a baby and really appreciated the full kitchen and appliances. The microwave oven in our unit went kaput on our second day there and they had it replaced with a brand new one in less than 24 hours. Overall, we were very happy with our stay.

Clean, comfy, quiet, and spacious....highly recommend!

by Jessica on 02/05/2019
The condo was wonderful! There were even beach toys, chairs etc in a closet for us to use. I highly recommend staying here for families or traveling professionals.

Beautiful ocean view from the balcony.........would highly recommend!

by Liping on 02/05/2019
Highlights: - Washer and dryer inside the apartment. - Great location, close to everything. Lots of great restaurants and stores within walking distance. There is even one Walmart with 5 minutes driving distance. - Full kitchen with cooking utensils and some seasonings. There is also BBQ grill by the pool downstairs. Great for some simple cooking if you are getting sick of restaurant food. - Beautiful ocean view from the balcony. It is not full front view of the ocean but still beautiful. - The apartment is well maintained, spacious, clean with all the necessary amenities This is our first vacation using Airbnb. We had a great time staying there and would highly recommend this place.

The home is large and spacious. Kitchen well equipped.

by Ron And Katrina on 02/05/2019
The home is large and spacious. Kitchen well equipped. The house could use some major updating but the reason you choose this home is because of the outdoor entertainment area and pool. You will not be disappointed in that but this house sits right above a major road so expect road noise. The view is soo great you get past that..

Highly recommend....magical and unique!

by Sue on 02/05/2019
We had a wonderful time, the orchid inn Is a magical unique home, Both comfortable and beautiful. Besides for the beautiful location, we also appreciated the home's great decorating. There were all kinds of extra touches such as very well stocked kitchen.

Fantastic location. Ton of space and well appointed!!!!

by Jamie on 02/05/2019
In Kona a few times a year and this will now be my go to place.


by Laurie on 02/05/2019
Terrific townhome. Great location. Well appointed and comfortable


by Luba on 02/05/2019
Great Mauna Lani Resort area, quiet and convenient luxurious house.

Good layout with Master on opposite side from the 2nd bedroom - lots of privacy!!!

by Polina on 02/05/2019
Very nice space - huge veranda, well stocked with comfy chairs and tables, everything was super clean, kitchen is well stocked with dishes, etc, lots of towels and spare bedding. Good layout with Master on opposite side from the 2nd bedroom - lots of privacy. Nice showers and tubs. It would have been nice to have a few more beach supplies - most places I've stayed in Hawaii have more, though there was 1 chair, 1 boogie board and we bought an umbrella and left it in the unit as well. The location is really nice too - within 15 minutes we could walk to multiple shops, restaurants, a grocery store and the beach at A-Bay. My only real complaint is that the unit is FAR from soundproof. You can literally hear every step from the upstairs unit and every time a drawer or closet is opened. It was hard to believe there is no soundproofing at all. Our flight was delayed, so we got to the unit at 1 am. Without realizing how poorly the units are insulated, we rolled our bags across the floor and did a few basic things to settle in. We were tired and subdued, but the very few things we did were enough to have the downstairs neighbors banging on the ceiling. I thought they were overreacting until the next day when we could hear absolutely everything from the upstairs unit starting at 6 am. This did not ruin our stay, just be aware this is what you should expect.

Great location and incredible view!

by Brenda on 02/05/2019
We enjoyed watching the surfers from The lanai. We ran both air conditioners at night but the bedrooms were still too warm to have a really comfortable sleep. All in all we really enjoyed our stay.

This condo exceeded all our expectations!

by Erika on 02/05/2019
It has everything you could need from beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers, containers to take food to the beach or pool, and all the appliances are top of the line. It was very clean and there were extra linens, pillows and towels. The lanai is beautiful. The concierge, David, was amazing. He booked our excursions and gave us beach and restaurant recommendations that were great! The parking is a bit tight but we got a full size SUV in the spot. Would definitely get this condo again.


by Benjamin on 02/05/2019
Awesome place across the street from a beginner surf spot!!!

Well appointed condo in a quieter area of the Kona waterfront area

by Anonymous on 02/05/2019
We loved our stay at this condo. The best part was watching whales and spinner dolphins from the lanai. Mahalo for a wonderful stay at this lovely condo.

Fantastic view of the Ocean

by Hans on 02/05/2019
Stayed 3 weeks in January 2019 at Sea Villiage 3210. Fantastic view of ocean just like the pictures.Saw dolphins from lanai. The unit was clean. Bed comfortable. Had most of our meals on lanai. We saw the pool and hot tub cleaned 7 days per week. Laundry in unit is a bonus. This is our 3rd time at Sea Village and 4th time in Kona and we would rate this unit the best. We would definitely stay here again.

Nicely decorated ,clean and very comfortable to stay in

Great Condo!

by Deborah on 02/04/2019
First time staying at this property and we were very happy. The gated community is in a good location, close to town, but far enough away for peace and quiet after a fun day of adventures. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed and much more. The owner/property management does a good job with the details. There was always someone available for questions we had. The information book regarding the property was the most comprehensive I’ve seen and we’ve stayed at several other condos in Kona. Overall, we found our time at the condo relaxing, which is what you want on vacation, but with all the comforts that make you feel at home. Only issue we had was that the air conditioner didn’t seem sufficient for the condo. The upstairs was cool but the downstairs was much warmer even with the fans. We’d love to stay in Na Hale O’Keauhou with our next visit and hope this condo will be available. Mahalo!

If you are looking for a house in Kona look no further!

by Thomas on 02/03/2019
My family and I stayed in the most beautiful house in Kona for 15 relaxing days. The house was stunning - big rooms, clean bathrooms, excellent kitchen, and the most amazing view. The pool was perfect, and we spent every evening watching the sunset from the hottub. We could not have asked for a better place to spend our vacation.

Comfortable Unit

by Judy on 02/03/2019
This unit had plenty of space and was very comfortable for our 3 week stay. It is the only unit I've seen that has a door on the bedroom instead of the sliding divider at this property. We enjoyed sitting out on the lanai every morning & evening. Didn't really need to use the air conditioning as the trade winds kept us comfortable. Only thing we were disappointed in was there is a landscaping hill in front of the unit so you can't see the ocean when sitting inside. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

Beautiful View

by Edward on 02/02/2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment. Great views and lots of privacy. Great airflow to keep cool.

Perfect for a Big Island Vacation

by John on 02/02/2019
We really enjoyed our stay. The condo had everything we needed. It was a great place to start our daily adventures or to just hang out and watch the golfers from the lanai. Thank you so much for sharing your home. John & Kathy

Had a Great Time

by Lori on 02/02/2019
The house was clean as were all the linens, but a little bit tired. The pool is not heated, so not of any use in January. The hot tub heated, but jets wouldn't come on. We called the manager who had someone out that day who fixed the jets, but the next day they didn't work again and we just dropped it. All in all, we had a great time, and the place was perfect for 4 couples.

Wonderful Lanai, Beautiful Sunsets, Great Location and Sea Turtles

by Jeffery on 02/01/2019
I chose this condo for the lanai and unobstructed ocean view and it did not disappoint. We watched the sunset every evening and enjoyed leisurely breakfasts on the lanai. When I saw the photos I thought the camera they used probably made it look larger than in reality, but it really is huge. The condo itself is very clean and has everything you need to prepare and enjoy meals. It's located around the 2.5 mile marker from the town center, so far enough away to be peaceful but close enough to pop into town for shopping or dining. We enjoyed walking along the lava rocks and saw sea turtles next to the property. Definitely recommend this condo for anyone looking to be right on the ocean. One note: the front bedroom faces the street so if you keep the window open, you will hear some traffic as well as roosters every morning starting around 3am. But with the windows closed, it was very quiet and the ceiling fan kept the room comfortable.

Wonderful stay! So hard to leave!

by Ruth on 02/01/2019
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.

Wonderful view! Perfect location!

by Bonnie on 02/01/2019
This condo was very clean and well equipped. The lanai was our favorite hangout place. This is a smaller unit building, very friendly, a helpful staff, and within a five to ten minute walk to the restaurants and shops in Kailua-Kona.

A Wonderful Condo

by Martha on 02/01/2019
This was our second stay at Casa de Emdeko but first stay in this Condo (#327). It was by far a nicer Condo than we stayed at last year. It is well equipped, has a fantastic bathroom and new appliances and state if the art TV's and blue tooth. The furniture is modern and comfortable. The location is just off the elevator and the view lovely. The parking is secure, the pools are fantastic and the sunsets magnificent. The salt water pool right on the ocean is what drew us back for a second vacation. Great location from town and an easy trip to large stores such as Walmart, Bag & Save, Costco and the town has an abundance of restaurants. There were a couple beaches with several life guards just south that are great for snorkeling. Just off the parking lot is a small deli so when you arrive you have a means to get food for dinner after a long airplane ride.

Perfect Vacation Condo

by Michael on 01/31/2019
This is the most spacious and beautiful condo we've ever stayed in! The townhouse style was really nice for giving everyone the space they wanted while the layout allowed plenty of open-space for together times. The location is wonderful, quiet and also near the beach, shopping, dining and exploring. We appreciated the use of the boogie boards, cooler, beach chairs and there were plenty of beach towels. The master suite is huge (tip: avoid resort prices and schedule an in-room massage -amazing!). We seldom turned on the TV's but there are 3 - one in the living room and one in each bedroom. Great wifi service. This condo is near the smaller of two lovely pools for swimming and I appreciated the workout room to work off the extra mai tais. If you want to relax, enjoy the option of cooking and BBQ'ing for some of your meals, and be near the many island amenities, then this is the condo for you!

Fun time in the sun

by Karen on 01/30/2019
It was great! Comfortable unit.

Lovely, comfortable home

by Gary on 01/30/2019
Well maintained home with a nice view. Everything you'll need, complete with a guide for area recommendations.

Fantastic views!

by Paul on 01/30/2019
We loved our stay in Kona, the unit was incredible with everything you could ask for thought of and documented. We ended up sleeping on the murphy bed so we could here the sound of the surf all night long. The only draw back is no elevator, which was only a problem twice, bringing the suitcases in and out.

Loved this place

by Debbie on 01/30/2019
We loved this place and it was just as it appeared online, no surprises other than better than we expected! First time I have stayed in a condo that was so fully supplied with everything we could possible have needed to cook with, go to the beach with and even in room entertainment with games, music, etc Would definitely come back and would request same unit! Mahalo

Very Nice, just as we expected!~

by Rodger on 01/30/2019
The unit was well maintained and very clean. The location is great, close to downtown with easy access to other shopping by car. Very quiet with the Lanai face the mountains (opposite the pool) which is great and peaceful. We loved it... R&K Jan 2019


by Jo Ann on 01/29/2019
The property was amazing. House well stocked with what we needed. So private & still close to everything. I lived in Captain Cook so I enjoy the privacy. Picking citrus in the orchard was a treat. I would stay here again.

Such a great stay!

by Marisa on 01/29/2019
Country Club Villa 241 Alii Drive, Kona. We had such a great stay! Best view, it was so beautiful and had everything there that we could have needed! The bed was so comfortable, and the condo had a very cozy feel to it. I did my research on the island before I got there, but still didn't feel like I planned enough. Owners had a book with a lot of information and a personal concierge that booked us a Luau. If you didn't plan thats okay, they have you covered! Can't wait to go back, we don't plan on staying anywhere else. Thanks for the great time!


by Richard on 01/28/2019
We’ve just returned from our amazing holiday at the Golf Villas unit L5. We found the support and service from Kona Coast vacations was excellent. There were some issues with the shower and toilet in the en-suite that were resolved immediately and the service provider was friendly, professional and solved the issue. This is our 5th time staying at the Golf Villas and we wanted to left you know the kitchen was very well stocked in particular, the glassware and dishes was nicer than most. The appliances all worked well except a temperamental ice maker which wasn’t a big deal as we just bought bagged ice. The outdoor lanai and patio were quiet, scenic and lovely and we really enjoyed relaxing on the comfortable furniture. This is a big benefit for me as I won’t even consider a unit that has unwelcoming outside furniture. The pillows were comfortable in the bedrooms and there were lots of nice quality towels including extra beach towels. If I were to give a recommendation, it would be regarding the beds. A couple people in our party (my daughter and husband) found the beds a little uncomfortable and had sore backs. It would be ideal to use linen on the beds that’s a bit more breathable (100% cotton) vs blends for a more comfortable sleep but it’s a small thing. We’d be pleased to stay in the unit again and thank the owners for the beautiful decor and stay

Fantastic Property!!!

by Loretta on 01/27/2019
This property is very clean, very well equipped with all the things you need for your stay on the big island. It has the best view and the most comfortable lounge chairs that we have every had. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Big Island. Mahalo

We definitely would like to stay again at the house!

by Debra on 01/26/2019
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.


by Kathryn on 01/26/2019
From the spotless, tastefully decorated condo to the fantastic view from the lanai, this condo was a wonderful getaway for us. We loved the layout, Two balconies (one for the morning and one for the afternoon), and the nearby restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

All you can ask for

by Barb on 01/26/2019
Kona Makai 6204 was a wonderful choice for our recent Hawaiian vacation. The property is perfectly situated within walking distance to Kailua Kona and nearby beaches offer great variety. The complex offers amazing ocean and sunset views and is well cared for with excellent facilities including a saltwater swimming pool, ping pong table and fitness facility. The unit is well cared for, up to date and contains everything you need to enjoy your stay including kitchen amenities and beach gear. Onsite property management is very diligent in daily maintenance and the well cared for facility shows beautifully.


by Sue on 01/25/2019
We had a most wonderful stay in Kona with no problems at all

Very nice condo

by Dixie on 01/25/2019
Very nice condo, beautiful view but noisy. Bedroom right next to stairs and people moving down early. Kitchen needs a large frying pan and sink cleaner. Bathroom has several issues: leak in toilet tank, loose seat and needs a good cleaning around the base. Otherwise very nice.
Aloha! On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important feedback. Please be assured that your concerns have been shared with our management team to be addressed. We appreciate you taking the time to share them with us. On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help! We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.

Awesome view of the ocean!!

by Ruby on 01/25/2019
Great location! Nice and clean, we will definitely come back next year!!


by Rosemarie on 01/24/2019
Wish the parking was better.... very hard to park cars in the spots


by William on 01/23/2019
You will not find a better company to book your vacation! We are very happy we chose to book our vacation through Kona Coast. Their entire team worked through our vacation plans and helped us with schedule changes and found my family the perfect vacation property. Makenzie and Lori took excellent care of us. They answered all our questions and made our Christmas vacation the trip of a lifetime. I have booked with other companies in Kona and you will not find this level of service anywhere else. As for the property we rented-PERFECT. We are a family of 5 and Keauhou Estates Aloha Shores 7 was the perfect place. Everyone had there own bedroom with a great TV. The beds where comfortable. The kitchen had everything we could want and more. The bathrooms where large and spacious. Plenty of linens and towels. The laundry room came in handy. The pool/hot tub was perfect. It was fun to BBQ dinner while the kids where swimming. Having the patio with an amazing view was great in the morning and made for awesome sunset viewing. There is some extra beach stuff in the garage, we added 2 chairs to the collection, for the next guests. If and when we decide to come back to Kona I will be booking with Kona Coast vacations again!

A large and very well equipped apartment building dream location

by Bernhard on 01/21/2019
The apartment was clean. The machines all right. The kitchen equipment very rich. The bed a bit too soft. Great service, that you could store your luggage in the office. A star deduction, as small ants were mostly in the kitchen.


by Judy on 01/21/2019
Best house for a Kona vacation. We will return!

Beautiful and peaceful

by Nedra on 01/21/2019
Fairway Villas is well located and a wonderful place to stay. This particular condo was the cleanest in which we have ever stayed. It had air conditioning but the nice thing about the weather is that we never even turned it on. The kitchen was well stocked, even the kitchen drawers were organized and spotless. We would definitely stay here again.

Amazing views and a well stocked clean apartment

by Justine on 01/21/2019
Nothing to fault about the actual apartment. It was well stocked with spare items and just the little extras that made you feel like you were at home. Lots of fresh air and light and we were all very comfortable. The only downside is that if you want to walk into Kona proper for dinners it is just a little bit far at about 2 and 3/4 mile out of town. But other than that cannot fault it and would stay again for sure.

The view from this unit is amazing!

by Dana on 01/20/2019
Location location location!!! If you enjoy play tennis it is also very close to the courts! The unit is well stocked in the kitchen with all the things you will need! If you are wanting a few extra touches to play games, read, go to the beach look no further this is your unit! The pool is fabulous

Everything was perfect !! We highly recommend this house!!

by Veronique on 01/20/2019
We loved our stay at this house. It was very clean and lacked nothing. The house is really consistent with the photos. The outdoor decor is beautiful with the exceptional sunsets. The house is so big that we did not feel crowded at all and we were a family of 5. We had great service from Kona Coast. Very good follow up on their part to check if everything was fine.

Our suite was very stylish, clean and spacious!

by Krystyna on 01/20/2019
There were plenty of pillows, blankets and towels. The location is good, only a 5 minute drive into town. There are also many good restaurants around town. It truly felt like being in a fancy resort and it was a great stay overall! Thank you for an amazing stay! We really appreciated the clear communication and spectacular room with a view. The facilities were very nice as well, we enjoyed both pools.

This is a very clean, spacious, and well-stocked home!

by Rima on 01/20/2019
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


by C on 01/20/2019
Nice oceanfront location


by Corbern on 01/20/2019
The unit had everything we needed and more!

Very nice unit in a townhouse community!

by Laura on 01/20/2019
The living area on the upper level was very comfortable with a wonderful lanai with ocean view. Bedroom is on the lower level. The only issue I had was the lack of walking/jogging trails in the area. It was a short walk to Keauhou Bay and the very quiet He'eia Bay, but other than that, not much to explore in the immediate neighbourhood.

Terrific in every way

by Martha on 01/20/2019
Really lovely! Great location in Kailua within walking distance of restaurants/bars/coffee places. Quiet (except for the sound of the surf, delightful), lovely decor, lots and lots of amenities. We did not cook (because vacation) but the kitchen was very well equipped and spanking clean. Big washer dryer. Pretty, private sun deck off the master BR. Loved watching the sunset from the lanai and listening to the ocean. A very good choice for family with teenagers. Thanks Michelle!

Come for the surf

by Bruce on 01/20/2019
This condo is located in the Kona Reef and the location could NOT be better! Fully stocked kitchen helps cut the expense of eating out. Free parking and wifi. This place is marvelous for the view and is CLOSE to the center of Kona. It has everything you could possibly need for a delightful stay except a bed. Our ONLY complaint is the horrible, uncomfortable dilapidated bed! As soon as I tried it, I thought "Oh no! My back will never make it!" My sweetheart agreed. The king bed has a crown down the center, so if you are alone, you could sleep in the middle of the bed OK. But for 2 people we discovered it was more comfortable if we lay sideways, parallel to the headboard. I spent the last night of our honeymoon sleeping alone on the couch because it was more comfortable than the bed. Once the bed is replaced, this will be the PERFECT Kona condo experience.
Mahalo for having been our guest and for taking the time to share with us your recent stay.  
Based on your feedback, the issue with the bed has been corrected. We appreciate you taking the time to share this with us.
It has been a pleasure to serve you, and we look forward to welcoming you back the next time your travels bring you to the Big Island!
Kona Coast Vacations

Everythings are good!

by Thomas on 01/20/2019
Good VBRO works every time

Great Stay!

by Susan on 01/18/2019
We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. The view was awesome and it was always fun watching the Nene's and turkeys on the golf coarse. This was our second time staying in this area -we like the quiet low-key vibe. The condo was clean, well equipped and furnished nicely- my husband & son especially enjoyed the big screen tv:). We hope to return again this year and will definitely stay here if available.

Beautiful Condo

by Deborah on 01/18/2019
We had a wonderful stay Dec 2018 - Jan 2019. This condo was just as lovely as in the pictures.. The kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, cookware, bakeware, blender, dishes, cutlery etc. The appliances were clean and in good working order. The bedrooms were spacious. The bed in the master bedroom is extremely soft (personal preference). As far as beach toys go, there was only one boogie board and no sand toys for smaller children. There was a couple of sets of snorkel gear, beach umbrella, beach chairs and a cooler. The pool area was beautiful and we never had a problem finding chairs. There were also some shady spots by the pool. The Mauna Lani private beach is a great perk. We went early to get cabanas several days. The ocean is very calm in this bay. It is also nice to have Lava Flows or chocolate milk shakes on the beach. We would definitely stay here again!

Another fabulous visit to Kona!

by Chris on 01/17/2019
We were celebrating a birthday and anniversary on our recent visit to Kona and felt so comfortable in this condo for this special trip! We had all the comforts of home with the added bonus of the "aloha spirit" in this beautifully decorated condo. The spectacular views from both lanai's made our trip all the more amazing. Great location - close to all the great shops, restaurants and bars along Ali'i Drive. We will definitely be back!!

Lovely property- we will be back!

by Taryn on 01/15/2019
Beautiful property with lovely gardens, artwork, so well appointed and close enough to uber to town for a night out.

Nice place to stay

by Shawn on 01/15/2019
This unit had everything that one would expect at this price point. The windows above the slider were nice, as they allowed surf noise in at night, while still providing security. There were chairs, coolers, shade umbrellas, etc. The property managers did a good job of being available without being intrusive. A large box fan to pull in fresh air when the the trades aren't blowing would be helpful and keep the AC bill down. I would stay here again.

The place was awesome!

by Marc on 01/15/2019
Nice and quiet at night, clean and comfortable. I hope this unit is available for our next trip to Kona.

Highly recommend!

by Mk on 01/14/2019
amazing location great communication huge space (we are a family of 6) and we had more than enough space as described.

Can't wait to come back!

by Prabhat on 01/14/2019
Fantastic place with gorgeous ocean View and soothing sounds of waves... can't wait to come back!

Beautiful location, very clean home

by Lydia on 01/14/2019
Everything was extremely neat and tidy in the house, all appliances working properly and access very easy via keypad locks. As it is an ocean-side house the emphasis is on furnishings and finishes that can hold up to the salt air, humidity, water and sand. That said, everything was in good condition yet not terrifically comfortable. Patio furniture for the living area (pretty typical for rentals in Hawaii) and no large rugs or carpets, and no extraneous furniture like lamps in the downstairs living room creates the feeling of just hanging out on a patio. The views and location are what you’re there for anyways and with all the activities the island offers, how much time would you spend being a couch potato anyways? Thanks for the wonderful week!

What a beautiful home!

by Deanne on 01/14/2019
The family gathering in Serenity 10 was so much fun. What a beautiful home. The place was clean,open,decorated with class and with such views. Each family had their own bathroom which was so nice. We enjoyed having our own pool, bbq, washer/ dryer,and the kitchen had everything we needed. It was a peaceful location very private and secure plus so close to everything. The New Years Eve fireworks could be seen from the patio area. Great place to have fun in the sun. We are coming back again and again. Thanks so much for sharing your home.

Convenient location to explore the area!

by Melissa on 01/12/2019
Nicely appointed spotless condo.

The view and location was great!

by Danyel on 01/12/2019
The house was quaint and the front balcony was beautiful! I would recommend this to any older couple, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with teenage kids or young couples. It is more of a older living area.

Very good location!

by Andrew on 01/12/2019
Parking right in front of condo was fantastic. Clean condo.

If you're looking to get away from the resort vibe, I highly recommend this place!

by Jeffrey on 01/12/2019
With two kids, having amenities like a full kitchen and a barbecue make vacationing budget-friendly and more convenient. location is place does require you get a rental car but I recommend getting a rental car anyhow. there is a beach walking distance that is great for swimming and snorkeling, if you want to visit other beaches and other sites get a rental car.

This is a very special place!!!

Amazing location, beautiful space, and wonderful amenities! The Royal Sea Cliff and Kona Coast Vacations made our family vacation a once-in-a-lifetime event!

Amazing location and perfect size for us!

by Justin on 01/12/2019
. Great view to wake up to in the morning and watch the stars at night.


by Admilson on 01/12/2019
The place was clean, well stocked, had nice amenities, a great view, and the hosts were friendly and responsive. It was very spacious and comfortable. The only downside was that there is no insulation from sound. If you end up with noisy neighbors above your or next to you like we did, you will hear everything. If your neighbors stay up late and make a lot of noise you will hear all of that too. If you are a night owl and sleep like a rock you will be fine! Otherwise, the place is really nice and we were happy with it.

Highly recommended!!!

by Chris on 01/12/2019
Perfect accommodations for our family for the Christmas break. We were 8 adults and 3 toddler boys. Lots of space to spread out and everyone (especially the boys) enjoyed the pool. Everything from the well stocked kitchen to the spectacular views made the house a perfect fit for us.

The pictures do not do this house justice!!!

by Kari on 01/12/2019
We stayed 10 days at this home and were pleasantly surprised that it exceeded our expectations. My family would definitely stay here again. We were disappointed to learn that the pool was not heated but once over the initial shock of mid 70 degree water it was refreshing to swim in. We were a group of 6 and found this place very spacious for our group.


by Prabhukumar on 01/12/2019
Good place, comfortable, golf course views from lanai, check-in & out was easy. Place as presented in the photos. Would choose Kona vacations in the future.

Amazing sunsets!

by Rebecca on 01/12/2019
Enough room for everyone to spread out

Lovely view where the pictures don't do it justice!

by Julian on 01/12/2019
Very homely with everything you need. Lovely view where the pictures don't do it justice! Grounds are kept well and quite nice. There is a public salt water pool close to the unit which is awesome (though you can expect some foot traffic during sunset that is not a bother). Would recommend and stay here again.

This is a perfect place in Kona!

by Viswanatha on 01/12/2019
The place is renovated and close to beaches and shops. It is clean with all the amenities. We used the salt water pool and watched sunsets from there. Our kids enjoyed this place. The AC is also in good condition. Overall, I recommend this place.

Everything was perfect! The house was beautiful and the location was spectacular!!!

by Kim on 01/12/2019
Thank you so much for the great experience! We would definitely stay with you again! Everything was perfect! The house was beautiful and the location was spectacular. We had beautiful sunsets every night from our deck. We knew that you were available if we needed anything, but everything was perfect! The house had every type of amenity: blenders, coffee pots and bean grinder, a juicer, even a barbecue on the back deck. All the rooms were spacious and there were plenty of sheets and towels and all kinds of toys for the beach. The pool was wonderful and so was the hot tub. There was even a plunge pool to get in and cool off. Would definitely recommend and we will definitely stay there again when we visit Kona! Thanks again!!

This place was great and I would definitely stay here again!

by Jeni on 01/12/2019
Loved that the beach was just out the front door. We ate our meals watching the ocean, beautiful sunsets and turtles play in the waves. The restaurants and shops of Kona are in walking distance, and it's just a short drive from many beaches, snorkeling and boat harbors for arranged excursions.

We loved this condo!!

by Sharon on 01/12/2019
It was so well equipped - better than most we have stayed in. Location was great and property was well maintained. Pull out bed was much better than the usual hide a bed. Wish there was recycling.

Will come back for sure!

by Starla on 01/12/2019
Beautiful home, location and view. Could not have asked for a better place to sit back relax and watch the ocean! There were days we did not want to leave to explore the island and just relaxed, walked the shore and enjoyed the breeze.

This place is wonderful!

by Shea on 01/12/2019
a beautiful hawaiian home fully outfitted with everything and in a great location

This condo complex is our favorite place to stay in Kona!!!

by Julie on 01/12/2019
The view from this particular unit is excellent, and it was really pretty quiet. It is a short walk to all the stores and restaurants in Kona, and there are some great lounge chairs that you can put out on the grass next to the ocean and just sit there all day enjoying the water and the sun. There is also a small beach next door. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We especially love having a blender to make smoothies. There are well working overhead fans in the bedroom, the living room, and out on the lanai. We really enjoyed having those. If you park in the first parking lot that you see when entering the complex, then you only need to walk up about six stairs to get to the level of this unit. Check in was very easy, we had arrived around 10 PM, and it was a simple lock box on the door with the key. If we come to Kona again we definitely will check to see if this unit is available. It was super clean and well stocked.


by Tehung on 01/12/2019
great place to stay

Loved number 52

by Brigham on 01/12/2019
Perfect for a family of four.

Great location!

by Duane on 01/12/2019
Great location! some many extras included. beach heat, chairs,umbrellas, mats etc. every possible kitchen appliance. even some sunscreen. we will be back

Very nice property

by James on 01/12/2019
This is a great condo with all of the amenities. The kitchen has a very nice assortment of dishes and utensils, including a coffee grinder, which we used to make fresh ground coffee every day. The furnishings are in good shape and are comfortable. We enjoyed the nice view of the ocean on the balcony and spent a good portion of our time on the wicker chairs which were provided. Another great aspect of this particular unit is the combination lock on the front door, which meant no lost keys to worry about. Our only minor complaint about the property is that the scald guard on the shower is set way to low, making impossible to get a decently hot shower. A very minor complaint. Overall this is a very nice unit with everything you need to enjoy your stay on Kona. Highly recommended.

Fantastic place for a family trip to Kona

by Pey-Shiuan on 01/12/2019
This home is beautiful! It is spacious, clean, nicely decorated and has pretty much all you need for a relaxing family vacation. The beds were quite comfortable and each room has a ceiling fan so you didn't really have to use the AC at night. The pool was a great size and it's nice it was right off the kitchen and family room. It was nice to be able to borrow boogie boards for our trips to the beach too. The location is good - only about 10 minutes from downtown, easy to find and in a quiet neighborhood. Our whole family felt at home here and we would definitely be back.

Perfect home for a family

by Patricia on 01/12/2019
Ten days with my two grown children and their spouses and my husband. When not sightseeing we lived in the outdoors swimming in the pool, eating at the outdoor table, relaxing on the outdoor furniture. This house had everything we needed and I mean everything. Worth every penny.

Beautiful property, great location, stunning view!

by Lisa on 01/11/2019
Who could ever get tired of the view from this property?! Accommodations were very comfortable and exactly as seen in photos. Just a quick walk across the street for some of the best snorkeling, and we saw more there than on the tour we paid for, though access into the water is a bit tricky, as there really isn't any sand to water entry but definitely worth the effort! The unit was very welcoming and comfortable for all five adults in our party. The location was great and a bit off the beaten path but that's what we wanted. Just a note: the school bus stop is directly on the corner below the unit and the kids are quite vocal in the morning! Everything was beautiful and comfortable about our stay. You won't regret booking your stay here unless three flights of stairs pose a problem for you. Just wonderful!

The Orchid Inn is balm for the soul!

by Antonia on 01/11/2019
David was very responsive and helpful in arranging kayaking, whale watching, the luau and the submarine, in addition to providing helpful information about the local scene we would otherwise not have had accessible to us. You do, however, need to pay attention to some of the electrical issues I mentioned in the earlier note. I would recommend this property for a family like ours, recognizing that not everyone wants a peaceful setting filled with nature.

Wonderful Golf Course Condo with Spectacular Views

by Chris on 01/11/2019
The Country Club Villas are a tremendous complex on the Kona Country Club golf course. There are three swimming pools, 2 with solar heat that keep them a very pleasant temperature. The grounds are quiet and well kept. There is some road noise from Alii Drive but mostly during the day. Conveniently located close to shopping, restaurants, etc. at the Keahou mall. Unit 117 is ground floor with an expansive lanai overlooking the 18th fairway and the gorgeous Pacific ocean. It is very well equipped with everything you will need for a wonderful vacation. We ate in most nights and were particulary pleased that it had it's own BBQ rather than the standard communal area. Communication with the agent, Kona Coast Vacations, was clear and straight forward and they were responsive to any questions we had. If we were to quibble, I would suggest to the owners that they invest in retractable sun screens as many of their neighbours have. As there is no air-conditioning the fans (mostly in the master bedroom where you want it to be cool) struggled to keep up with the heat that builds up all day due to the lovely western exposure. Highly recommended!


by Patricia on 01/11/2019
The condo and building was exactly how it was described - or even better. The pictures were accurate. The washer and dryer were actually in the unit. The condo was a block from snorkeling and the surf shop, where we rented surf boards. My kids were able to walk to the surf shop everyday and pick up a board, and then walk across the street. The condo was clean.

Amazing stay!

by Diana on 01/11/2019
We had a wonderful stay! The place was beautiful, super clean, and very well stocked with kitchen and bathroom supplies. I was concerned because I didn't check beforehand regarding our accessible shower needs, but was grateful when I found a new shower chair stored in the closet. Every need was anticipated. The view was great and we were able to watch the sun set over the ocean each night. The property is peaceful and well manicured, and the lanai layout was perfect for outdoor lounging. The only thing that would have made it better was if the pool was heated. However, the water wasn't too cold and that didn't prevent the kids from swimming all day! The property management team was attentive and reached out before and during our stay to ensure everything was perfect. Thanks!

Beautiful View

by Deidre on 01/10/2019
View is stunning. Kitchen has everything you need. Beds are comfortable. We really didn’t like the high chairs at both the tables. Was not comfortable to eat at, hard to get on and off of especially if you are short or have limited mobility. One of the beach chairs was broken, we purchased a new one and left it for future guests to use. There is a lot of street noise heard in the 2 bedrooms facing the street. Overall we were quite happy.


by Tetsuaki on 01/10/2019
非常にきれいな部屋です。設備も完璧、立地も申し分ありません。楽しく10日間過ごすことができました。また来年もお世話になります。 Very clean room. The facilities are perfect, and the location is perfect. I enjoyed spending 10 days. I am indebted to next year.

Great stay

by Karen on 01/10/2019
Highly recommend! Very well stocked townhome. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, lots of linens and beach towels, new Tommy Bahama beach chairs. Would stay again for sure.

Very comfortable and quiet

by Paul on 01/10/2019
The condo was clean and spacious and the surroundings quiet and well maintained. Property manager Albert was gracious and helpful. We'd stay there again

Wonderful place and great location

by Ginette on 01/09/2019
Excellent location and excellent service from staff members of Kona Coast Vacations. The property was clean but the bathtub and showers of the main bathroom need attention. We really appreciated the air condition. Alii Villas is a beautiful complex well maintained. The property description was very accurate. The lanai was great with perfect view of the ocean. Beach chairs and lots of beach towels were provided. We had all the amenities required for condo living and even more. We would definitely go back.


by John on 01/09/2019
We have been to Hawaii many times and although our accommodations we’re adequate they were nothing to write home about. This experience was completely different! The unit was beautiful and spacious. Our kids had room to play and run around. The unit was clean, had everything we needed and more for cooking. There was a ton of linen and a great washer and dryer. Just overall a wonderful experience! Thank you.

Paradise found

by David on 01/09/2019
Enjoyed a 2 week Christmas & New Years stay. Property is fantastic location in a exclusive area. Very charming and comfortable condo. Already planning to return and stay here again.

Clean and quiet

by Sheryl Renae on 01/09/2019
This is a lovely condo up in Waikoloa Village. It’s close to the grocery store and in a nice gated community. We travel to Waikoloa every year and stay in a condo for two weeks, every condo has its different perks! This condo has plenty of hot water and good water pressure. It’s lovely to take a refreshing shower and actually be able to get the sand out of our hair at the end of a beach day! The condo is very spacious, clean, and has a big screened lanai. Regarding the comments about bugs- all of Hawaii has bugs. They like the warm climate as much as we do! The owners have obviously put a lot of effort into pest control. If you do not leave food out, do the dishes, wipe the counters, take the garbage out each day and keep the floors clean; no bugs. The green lizards are actually darling little geckos on the lanai. I’m super glad I didn’t read the reviews before staying here- I wouldn’t have booked. But after staying here for two weeks, we would book again! Thanks for a lovely and restful stay!

Great place!!!

by Hilda on 01/09/2019
All around fantastic and comfortable stay and great view. The place had everything we needed. The only glitch was that the property was listed with 2 twin beds but upon arrival there was a queen bed instead. The property manager quickly did their best to rectify the issue as best they could with an air mattress. But other than that everything was great.

Gorgeous home and very baby friendly

by Emily on 01/09/2019
My entire family loved our stay at the house. We have a 10 month old baby who loves to get into everything-this house was very safe for her. The pool was great, the yard was very well groomed and perfect for little kids. The house itself was very well prepared (kitchen was stocked for cooking, there were plenty of towels) and everything worked well. We would absolutely stay again. It is a perfect location to get to downtown Kona but still have privacy and with peace and quiet.

Enjoyed the Stay

by Jiguang on 01/08/2019
My wife and me and my two big sons loved the clean and spacious property, and enjoyed the beautiful view of golf land and ocean.

Great view - clean unit - safe facility - easy parking

by Emily on 01/08/2019
The unit was clean and easy to access. Great location, relaxing surf 30 feet from the lanai where we watched sea turtles. The BBQ area was nice and clean for grilling fish. Would absolutely stay there again.

Awesome Sunsets

by Chris on 01/08/2019
This is the first time that we have done a Hawaii vacation with VRBO as we usually stay in resorts. Since my daughters are older and need more space, we decided to go this route. The suite had plenty of space and had all the amenities one could want. It is dated and could use a thorough clean as there was old dust /dirt in the corners (baseboard). The access to parking and pool was good. I guess I'm spoiled by staying in resorts. All in all, it was a great vacation!

Wonderful home, perfect location

by Jamie on 01/07/2019
Our family stayed in Awamoa Place for Christmas and New Years and had a fantastic time. The home is welcoming, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. When not enjoying the nearby beaches or driving to Kohala, Hilo, or Kona we practically lived on the lovely lanai. The location is as central as it gets for almost everything you want to do. Minutes to A-Bay, Hapuna and the other west side beaches and easy hops to Waimea, the Saddle Road and Hilo, or down to Kona. We really enjoyed ourselves. It was hard to leave and we'll definitely return!

Nicely furnished and equipped condo

by Anonymous on 01/07/2019
3309 is a nicely furnished and decorated 2BR/2BA condo at Sea Village. Living room and eating area are clean and roomy. It has a TV, fully equipped kitchen, and a comfortably shaded patio with a great view of Kailua Bay. Beach chairs and other accessories are provided. The pool, hot tub, and BBQ area are well groomed and attractive. The only reason I am not awarding five stars is because the unit has no air conditioning. Natural air flow from sea breezes helps to cool off the bedroom temperatures at night but the windows must be kept open to do so. Light and noise from the hallways and parking lots thus become a nuisance after dark. Loud conversations from other condo units were also a bother on some nights. The external light and noise is not really the fault of unit 3309 but it was a drawback at times. I would stay here again, regardless.

Great House!

by Brian on 01/07/2019
My family stayed here during our Christmas vacation. The house accommodated the 10 of us very comfortably. It was very spacious, and we particularly loved the upper lanai and the sunny pool area! The location was great as well - a 3 minute walk to Keauhou Bay to watch sunsets, walking distance to the Sheraton, the golf course and Keauhou Shopping Centre which has everything you need from groceries to restaurants. We also found the area to be very central to excursions and beaches both north and south of us. The house was very clean and the grounds were well maintained. No AC on the main floor but we were able to keep it cool with fans and opening doors/windows. A couple of suggestions would be to have someone meet you at the house on the first day to run through everything, and let you know when garbage day is etc. Also for a house that sleeps 10, there should be enough plates and chairs at the dining room for 10. Had a great time and would definitely return to the house and stay in the same area!

Very Happy

by Janet on 01/07/2019
We were very happy with Kona Coast Vacations, their employees and also our condo at Casa de Emdeko. We would surely choose KCV for our next trip to the Big Island.

Home away from home

by Jaymee on 01/06/2019
The place was super spacious and had everything we needed to be comfortable in the home but also to enjoy Hawaii: beach chairs, floaties, boogie boards, snorkels, etc. Was great!

Fantastic stay

by William on 01/06/2019
We had a fantastic stay at Kona Isle! The condo was great and very clean! They had everything you need - beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers, a fully stocked kitchen, a grill area, and a beautiful view of the ocean just steps away! I could have sat by the ocean watching the waves all day long! The concierge, Dave was fantastic and gave us great options for tours that we loved! I highly recommend them!

Beautiful home!

by William on 01/05/2019
We walked in to a very clean and well stocked home. When we woke up the view of the ocean was amazing. Hale Akoa had all the cooking amenities you need, plenty of towels and beach extras!

Fantastic kitchen

by Kristine on 01/05/2019
This is the best furnished rental kitchen I ever cooked in. We were Very comfortable here. We would rent this unit again !

No surprises except exceptional service

by Penny on 01/04/2019
Totally accurate description. Impressed with quick response to maintenance issue.

Beautiful Property

by Benny on 01/04/2019
Beautiful Property located in a secluded neighborhood with an unbelievable view of the ocean. This was a spectacular property. They did not spare any expenses in terms of details. My opinion of the house went up immediately when I found that the owners had installed a safe in the house, just like any high end hotel. It is within easy driving distance to Ali'i drive where the main restaurants are. The TV and Cable along with the pool spa is a little tricky. Took us a few phone calls and visits by the pool guy before we figured out how to watch the TV shows and to enjoy the spa. They have a computer room which I did not use...I don't think it provides a computer but just a link up to your lap top etc etc. I really wish they provided a clicker for the garage. They didn't and we had to get in and out of the car in order to activate the wall clicker in order to close or open the garage doors. But this was jus a minor inconvenience. Wish the sofa was a little more firm...seems like the springs had gone. Overall, I would return in a heartbeat.

Ocean front oasis

by Cindy on 01/03/2019
My husband and I travel to the Big Island quite a bit and always stay in VRBOs or AirBnBs.. This location was by far the very best place we've found. The unit is near the elevator and one floor below the parking spots. The interior is spacious - the moment we walked in we felt at ease and at home. Nice bedrooms and bathrooms. Kitchen is a good size and well stocked with the basics. Everything very clean. We loved how close we were to the water and the lanai was wonderful with tables and two lounge chairs.. The "quiet" pool is close enough to get to easily and far enough away to not be disturbed. A lot of privacy with very few people walking on the grass between the lanai and the wonderful view - sunsets were terrific, you could watch passing boats, dolphins, parasailers and cruise ships in the distance. Location is only a short drive to restaurants and shopping. We'll definitely be back again AND highly recommend this amazing place!!!

Wonderful vacation

by Dana on 01/03/2019
We enjoyed a wonderful vacation here on the Big Island. The apartment is well equipped, very clean and the location worked for us too. Pool and BBQ area are conveniently across and well maintained. Overall, we can absolutely recommend staying here. Kona Coast Vacations was also very friendly and helpful - many thanks!

Terrific Place to Stay

by Gerhard on 01/03/2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Casa 116 over the Christmas holidays. The unit itself was super clean and fresh, comfortable in size and a great location even within the complex because it’s so close to the pools and ocean. We were wakened by the ocean’s waves and closed the days with the conch farewell to the setting sun. The unit was well equipped for cooking and the barbecues pristine and handy for all those delicious Ahi, Mahi Mahi or steak cookouts. Casa-De-Emdeko is unique in its friendly atmosphere and a terrific place to stay.

Spacious condo in a great location!

by Elizabeth on 01/03/2019
This property was spacious, clean, and in a very quiet location (but so close to Kona!) The layout was great, nice views, and provided everything we needed. Excellent value for the area.

Absolutely wonderful!

by Lisa on 01/02/2019
This property was exactly what we hoped for. It's across the street from one of our favorite snorkeling spots. It made our vacations so relaxing to be able to come and go to the beach so easily, run back if we forgot something, or take part of the family back for nap time. Check-in was very easy, the home was very bright and clean, and we had everything we needed including an excellent washer and dryer. we even use the barbecue to grill fish one evening and got to watch the sunset over the ocean. We can't wait to come back, and this will be our first choice for where to stay!

Very convenient location

by Geoffrey on 01/02/2019
Just steps from the beach. Plenty of room for my family of five. Comfortable condo with plenty of room for the five of us. Internet and TVs were great to keep teens occupied too. Convenient location and just a few minutes to grocery and restaurants. Great central location for all our Big Island adventures.

Didn't want to go

by Treena on 12/31/2018
Great condo: beyond fully stocked, perfect layout, clean, comfy bed, fluffy towels (and lots of them), lots of light, good location, quiet....would definitely stay here again Thank you.


by Glenn on 12/31/2018
Amazing condo golf club Villa #219 overlooking the course and ocean. Beautiful sunsets EVERY evening perfectly visible from the lanai. Condo had all amenities from snorkel gear to beach chair/umbrellas. Kitchen fully equipped for meals/drinks. Best value by far of any other listing on the island definitely recommend.

Great family vacation

by John on 12/31/2018
Beautiful resort. House was well furnished & we’ll stocked for our comforts. We had a great time!

Great Place to stay

by Craig on 12/31/2018
We had a great time and the condo was in great condition.


by Jim on 12/31/2018
The unit (CCV 303) was wonderful. Having been an owner in CCV's for two units for the last 15 years we know the units, area, shopping, places to go, etc. very well. We have been owners in Kona since mid 70's. What is a disappointment is the fact the rental company was unable to rent the second week of our visit after having notified them over a month previous to our release of the second week. Now, unfortunately, the unit sits vacant with no return of our payment for the second week. Very, very disappointing. Thank you. Jim
Mahalo for having been our guest and for taking the time to share with us your recent stay. We are sorry that we were not able to re-rent the second week that you had reserved. Perhaps if it were a different time of the year and we had more notice than 5 weeks, we may have been more successful. Like yourself, most guests will book 6-months to 14-months in advance for the Holidays. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again. Mahalo Kona Coast Vacations

fantastic home and awesome location kona coast were super organized and responsive all around superb

We highly recommend this unit & would stay there again!

by Julia on 12/29/2018
We loved our stay! The location was beautiful & convenient, with a supermarket, gas station, many restaurants & shops just outside the condo complex! A gorgeous beach within 10 minute walk! A beautiful hike on the King's Train, which picks up right outside the gate and leads to secluded beaches through a field of lava. The condo itself appeared as presented on photos, if not bettter: clean & well stocked, with everything one needs, from the kitchen to the beach necessities!


by Anonymous on 12/29/2018
We had a ground floor suite .with lanai....adequate facilities & occasion to use beach equipment ...e.g. chairs, beach shoes & surf boards & towels. Very nice pool for the children & the beach was close. Will look fwd to our next trip MAHALO


by Deanna on 12/28/2018
Everything about this condo is perfect. Already booked for next year!

Shangri La!世外桃园

by Bonnie on 12/28/2018
It makes such a big difference where you stay when you are on vacation. The home is so special and we really enjoyed it very much. It is classy from beautiful paintings and beautiful decoration such as Tibetinese carpets to high quality kitchen supplies. It is very easy to cook meals. The location is great and is surrounded by beautiful tropical plants. There are panoramic views of the ocean framed by palm trees and there are beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed the snorkeling very much at a state park nearby that had many free facilities. The management company is helpful and prompt. Enjoy!

Excellent condo in perfect location

by Thomas on 12/28/2018
Very clean condo, good furniture, good equipt, quiet (condo above not in use), fantastic view.

Beutiful View

by Linda on 12/27/2018
The perfect house for our family of 9. This home is everything you expect and more. The description, pictures, and amenities are accurate. The house is very well maintained and the Kona Coast customer service reps are fantastic. The washer broke down toward the end of our stay and they quickly took care of fixing it before we left. One of the amenities of the house is a concierge service, which I highly recommend using. David, the concierge , was great with timely responses and several suggestions. If I ever find myself going back to the Big Island, I will be renting through Kona Coast Vacation Rentals - Superb operation.

Beautiful Home

by Theresa on 12/27/2018
Pros: The home is beautiful, has an amazing ocean view, gorgeous landscaping, perfect layout, well supplied kitchen, and very convenient location. The kitchen, dining, and living rooms have massive sliding windows that open to the huge lanai. All seven of us enjoyed having that area to play games and enjoy the sun and view. The whales were late this year, but we did see a few from the lanai on the last two days of our stay - bring your binoculars. There is plenty of seating inside and out. The star gazing from pool side is amazing when the moon is down; we saw 50+ shooting stars between 2:30 and 3:30. The internet and TV functioned well. We are very competitive with ping pong, so the table was really nice to have. Fortunately, our son brought his "pro" paddles; there were no paddles provided in the home, only two balls left in the drawer. The location is convenient to several good snorkeling spots, with the best offshore snorkeling just down the road within sight from the lanai. The most economical shopping is just 15 minutes away at WalMart, Safeway, and Costco (just a few minutes farther). Cons: The road noise is, as mentioned by other tenants, very loud for the back and right of the house - which includes the master suite, pool, and lanai areas. It echoes up from the road constantly until 1 am, and begins again at 6am – it is not just rush hour. The sound is somehow magnified up from the road. A single car will wake you. We wore earplugs at night and ran the floor fan on high to mask it. The fountain does not help cover the noise (as mentioned by another guest) and the fountain only runs occasionally (the switch on the wall makes no difference as to ‘on’ or ‘off’). It must be on a timer. It is difficult to swim laps with the pool vacuum running constantly - the cord gets in the way. Management: If you have any problem, note the time, date, and representative’s name. Maintenance and Cleaning is handled very well. BUT, communication between the management company staff is lacking and they do not inform clients of progress (if any). I had 2 separate issues; one maintenance issue and a checkout extension request. I thought that both were resolved with one phone call, but each request resulted in me having to make multiple calls for status, follow up, clarification, confirmation… It was too much to explain in this note. Vacation is to get away from work, not generate more work and then pay for the frustration. I must say that all, but one of the young ladies was very mannerly over the phone – just not thorough. Things to do: If you are comfortable navigating and handling a boat in the ocean, I suggest renting a power boat from Kona Boat Rental for the day, Eric and Blake. We are avid snorkelers and were able to go to several great spots, seeing porpoise, eels, octopus, shark, rays, fish, fish fish... and 2 whales on our last day out. Two of our college grads went diving with Manta Dive Shop and came back with some really cool video. Speaking of mantas, be prepared if you go on the night manta snorkel viewing. As many as 12 people are assigned to hang (you are not to let go unless being escorted back to the boat) on to a single float that shines light to attract the plankton. It is very difficult to hold on to the float and take video or pictures. We did see 3 mantas within 15 feet. Don’t expect to get decent video considering the plankton and the depth. I would not take anyone less than 14 years old. Pololu Valley is a beautiful hike! It can be very slick so bring good shoes. Give yourself plenty of time to go up the continued trail at the other side of the black sand beach. Carry water,water, water. Enjoy!

Kona Coast Vacations

Family Reunion

by James on 12/25/2018
We stayed in this awesome home with great views and amenities. We had 9 in total for ten days and there was plenty of space so we got along great. Great location close to town and all that Kona had to offer. We will be back.

We loved this condo!!

by Sharon on 12/23/2018
It was so well equipped - better than most we have stayed in. Location was great and property was well maintained. Pull out bed was much better than the usual hide a bed. Wish there was recycling.

We had a very good relaxing time in this condo!

by Kerstin + Thomas on 12/23/2018
The cleanliness was extremely high- thank you so much! It was our 2 nd time with Kona vacation, we think about to come back.

Could not have asked for a better place to sit back relax and watch the ocean!

by Starla on 12/23/2018
Beautiful home, location and view.There were days we did not want to leave to explore the island and just relaxed, walked the shore and enjoyed the breeze. Will come back for sure!

Ocean front perfect

by Scott on 12/23/2018
Absolutely wonderful experience. Ocean front, turtles, waves. Couldn’t be better.

It was super clean and well stocked!

by Julie on 12/22/2018
This condo complex is our favorite place to stay in Kona. The view from this particular unit is excellent, and it was really pretty quiet. It is a short walk to all the stores and restaurants in Kona, and there are some great lounge chairs that you can put out on the grass next to the ocean and just sit there all day enjoying the water and the sun. There is also a small beach next door. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We especially love having a blender to make smoothies. There are well working overhead fans in the bedroom, the living room, and out on the lanai. We really enjoyed having those. If you park in the first parking lot that you see when entering the complex, then you only need to walk up about six stairs to get to the level of this unit. Check in was very easy, we had arrived around 10 PM, and it was a simple lock box on the door with the key. If we come to Kona again we definitely will check to see if this unit is available.

Reccommend for friends and family!!

by Cindy on 12/22/2018
The condo is true to the pictures shown. The common areas are clean and very accessible. The pool is quiet and great to relax in. The condo's balcony is amazing, perfect place to spend time with the family. Be sure to keep an eye out for dolphins! We saw them daily. Great touch to have the binoculars in the condo as well as beach chairs, towels and umbrellas to use on our day trips. The rooms are spacious and overall clean. I was slightly disappointed to have found ants in the bathroom and kitchen area and the balcony net door needs some tlc. I would recommend this place if you have a couple of friends or family as it is a great space to spend time together. As far as location it is great, not far from town and easy to find.

Beautiful, clean.....views!

by Kevin on 12/22/2018
Keauhou Estates is a premier location and house we stayed was beautiful, clean and provided excellent views of ocean and Kona coast line. We will rent again on next visit for sure.

Wonderful view. Perfect for two people.

by James on 12/22/2018
This was a great location to access all parts of the big island. Very quiet and relaxing to stay in Waikoloa Village. The suite had everything we needed.

Best choice in Kona!

by Karoline on 12/22/2018
We stayed in this property for 3,5 weeks, so I´d say I am qualified to share my opinion of this vacation rental. Pluses: - Easy and safe booking with KonaCoastVacation (who have an office in Kona if there's any question, or is just a phonecall away). - The first morning, while drinking coffee on our terrace, just steps away from the ocean, we saw dolphins leaping on the water. AND the last morning, we even saw a humpback whale breeching twice, and slapping its fin - waving goodbye to us! - Steps away from ocean (although you have to be a strong swimmer to go in the ocean here, during winter-season, as there is some pretty big waves at times, and reef just below the surface). - Easy access to pool area, since the apartment is on the ground floor - so you can just walk around the corner to cool off, and then go back to your patio to warm back up again in the sun! - Full kitchen with everything you need, and the complex has gas-grilles for your convenience, if you would like to grill some steaks one night, or all of the nights. - There´s aircon both in livingroom and bedroom - even though you don't strictly need it in Hawaii, it is a nice feature. - Walking distance to Kona-restaurants! - Free indoor parking, so your car is still cool getting into it, and not scorching hot from staying in the sun. - If you're staying for a longer period, this place has a washer-dryer, so you can bring less clothes, wash them, and then have more space for macadamias and kona-coffe on your way home! Minuses: - The cleaning of the place did leave someting to be desired. Especially in those hard to reach places, like behind the bed-table, tv, etc. But it wasn't dirty, just dusty! Would I ever stay here again or recommend to anyone going to Kona? Yes and yes!

Wonderful stay in an Island Paradise

by Wayne on 12/21/2018
We were very satisfied with our stay. Property was exactly as described on the website and Kona Coast Vacations ensured we had all the items to make our stay a pleasurable experience. Views from the Lanai were fantastic. Sunsets were spectacular. The only reason we didn't give five stars was because of the morning noise from the parking area (disposing of the liquor bottles and trash at 6:30 am) interrupted our sleep. The grill area was super but I would suggest that the cleaning brushes be replaced a little more often (I used three of the four grills provided at different times and all the brushes were gunked up with crud). Overall, we would definitely consider staying at this property on a subsequent visit.

highly recommended

by Peng on 12/21/2018
Really nice condo at a great location for a vacation in the big island. It locates in a well balanced position to visit Wapio, Mauna Kea and Kona. Also, very close to Hapuna beach (a beautiful white sand beach) and within walking distance to the Hilton resort with lots of fun resources (if you have a kid). The condo is very nicely maintained and in a very clean condition with all necessary amenity. Our whole family (3 generations) stayed there for a whole week and we enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful time!

Tree house bungalow

by Jeff on 12/20/2018
We loved the unit's location and the fact that it's an end unit. It's like being in a tree house. We love the lanai. It's the perfect spot for whale and turtle watching. The kichen is bright and cheery and well stocked. The tile on the floors really need some deep cleaning. They are black. The king size bed is very uncomfortable because the sheets and mattress pad are so old. The sheets are thread bare and so thin. They just bunch up on the bed and it's impossible to get a good night's sleep. The bathrooms really need upgrading too. The furniture is attractive and the unit has everything you need for a day at the beach.
Mahalo for having been our guest and for taking the time to share with us your recent stay.  We are pleased to learn that you enjoyed your stay.
Please be assured that each of your concerns has been shared with our management team & the property owner to be addressed. 
It has been a pleasure to serve you, and we look forward to welcoming you back the next time your travels bring you to the Big Island!
Kona Coast Vacations

We will be back

by James on 12/20/2018
Good location in Kona, nice cabana, nice unit, reasonably priced.


by Carrie on 12/20/2018
Excellent location, resort, and unit! Would stay here again!

Perfect for us !

by Jon on 12/20/2018
I live here in Kona, and I have a friend in Los Angeles that has never been to the Big Island so I flew her out here. We are both seniors and don't like to walk long distances . We were very happy to see that we could park just a few steps away from our own elevator ! I took my friend all over the Island , and what a wonderful place to come back to. Without the crowded hotel scene we were able to find the solitude and surprisingly quiet that enabled us to enjoy each other's company ! What a great view !

Stunning property in a heavenly setting

by Justine on 12/20/2018
Wow! I spent a week here with three friends and the property was just perfect. It's situated away from the fray a bit north of Kona, but still easily close enough to go into town for any activities/shopping you want to do after you've had your fix of peace and quiet. It's also in a great location for a home base if you want to visit other parts of the island, especially the northern coast (eg Waipi'o and Pololu valleys) and Hilo areas. The property itself was immaculate - beautifully furnished, and with absolutely everything we needed to make ourselves at home. We did a lot of cooking and baking, and found everything we needed (and more!) in the kitchen. All the appliances are modern and quiet, which is a huge plus. And the community also has a pool and hot tub that we made sure to take advantage of. Hopefully we'll get the chance to come back for another stay in the near future!

Beautiful place to call home for 5 weeks.

by Brian on 12/19/2018
It was exactly what we were looking for. The location is great, parking right at the door, close to one of the two pools and bar-b-ques. The unit is large for two bedrooms and the kitchen is well equipped with all the pots, pans, plates, cups, glasses etc you would need for a large group. There was lots of beach gear, chairs, snorkeling gear, boogy boards etc. There was no shortage of towels, sheets, cleaning supplies, dish and laundry soaps etc. The appliances and furniture are a bit dated but are functional and clean. The management company was great to deal with and very helpful. We found this to be great vacation rental and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.

Great view, wonderful property

by Vladimir on 12/19/2018
Was just perfect. Property just like the pictures. Was beyond our expectations. Everything in great condition. The view the breathtaking. Would like to comeback in future.

Excellent Vacation

by John R on 12/19/2018
We had an excellent vacation. The property was fantastic and the location was as expected. I enjoyed morning walks at the Old Airport. What a true gem for the area. The family enjoyed all the tourist stuff. My kids snorkeled with manta rays and dolphins. Visited Mauna Kea and Kilauea and the black sand beach. Thank you so much. Mahalo

Great. Newly updated. Exactly like the picture!

by Kirk on 12/19/2018
This unit is great. Kona Coast Vacations mgt. is excellent to deal with. An absolutely wonderful value. Superb. Million dollar view.

Beautiful condo, well appointed!

by Kerry on 12/19/2018
This condo was beautifully decorated and nicely upgraded. Comfortable bed and easy to login to the internet and Tab system due to a family emergency that took me to Honolulu, I was only able to be there two days but enjoyed those two days! I would definitely stay here again thank you to Kona Coast Vacations who helped me when I wasn’t able to get my things at the end of my rental period.

Great condo

by Jordan on 12/19/2018
Beautiful views, spacious interior. Absolutely gorgeous. Hope to stay here again!

Excellent condo

by Jordan on 12/19/2018
Beautiful interior, seamless check-in experience, perfect place to stay for our vacation.

Fabulous sunset views!

by Teresa on 12/18/2018
Great location! Clean and had everything you need for your stay. Enjoyed watching the surfers while having our morning coffee. My only complaint would be that there is no air conditioning and having your window open at night found the street and ocean sounds quit noisy.

Well equipped unit

by Leslie on 12/18/2018
Within a day the management company was checking to see if we needed anything upon arrival..Very clean well equipped unit. All the comforts of home. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Well stocked kitchen for cooking. Nice to have coolers and beach equipment. Great vacuum which was nice to clean up the sand. Our coffee maker was leaking on the counter and they brought a new one overs with in hours. Great place to stay and would book the same unit again if available

Sweet Paradise

by Elaine on 12/18/2018
Breath taking view from this wonderfully furnish and decorated condo. Everything was perfect! Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us. Can't wait to come back!

Exceptionally clean and all you could ask for

by Nelson on 12/17/2018
This was a great condo. Walking distance to downtown Kona. Exceptionally clean. Air conditioning in bedrooms was a plus. Friendly people at complex. Would stay again

Great condo, would stay again

by Noella on 12/17/2018
This is a great vacation rental. Really appreciate the comfortable king size bed, dishwasher, and the in unit washer/dryer. The shower is awesome. It has four smaller heads against the back wall that spray along with the main head and detachable wand. Electronic shower control has me completely spoiled and now we want one at home! Would absolutely recommend this unit to anyone wanting to stay in the Casa de Emdeko complex.

Very beautiful and exceptionally maintained. The house had everything we needed and was perfect.

by Darren on 12/17/2018
Gorgeous property, great pool, very accommodating. The view, the house, it was all perfect. We didn’t want to leave!

We had a wonderful time!

by Jeffrey on 12/16/2018
Beautiful apartment in a great location. More spacious than it appears in the pictures. Wonderful sunsets every night.

Quiet and a beautiful view!

by Stacey on 12/16/2018
We only wished the second bedroom had a king size bed as well.

Another great trip with and amazing home!!

by Leah on 12/16/2018
The initial impression of the property and home was an exquisite home with an amazing view. As we drove into the neighborhood you could begin to see the view offered and once at the home it was even greater. This was our third stay on the big island and we would stay at Akoa Place again. We had two issues during our stay that were quickly taken care of by Kona Coast Vacations. They were very accommodating which made for another pleasant experience. The home is as beautiful as the pictures represent but the views from the lanai and pool are even better. We did not miss a sunset if we were at the home. The neighborhood was quiet and in a great location to get to Ali’i by foot or drive down to Lava Java. Overall the home was more than we could have wanted and KCV did a great job! Would recommend both the home and KCV for anyone visiting the big island!!

Perfect in every way!

by Mary on 12/16/2018
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in #232 at Casa da Emdeko. The manager Greg was very approachable and friendly. He gave us some tips about Kona and sightseeing. The residents and their evening sunset ritual was very relaxing and friendly. We didn't need anything, but groceries once we arrived. We did all our cooking in the unit or on the one of the furnished gas grills on the common patio area by the cabana. Our early December trip was at just the right time of year. The weather in Kona was great. Only rained a bit on our last day. This complex is central to everything. We had a rental car so were able to get around just fine. It's a bit of a walk into town. We will definitely return again!

Amazing location and great accommodation.

by Tavis on 12/15/2018
Easy check-in with the door code, provided ease of mind arriving close to midnight. Lovely community at Kona Isle, everyone was very pleasant and quiet. BEST location on the island for watching the sunset! The condo had all of the necessities to make for an amazing beach day. Great place, but I hope you like a firm bed!


by Jacob on 12/15/2018
If location is high on your priority list, this place is for you. It's within walking distance to numerous shops and restaurants, but far enough of the main route to get away from the crowd. There is good AC but we found it comfortable with the windows open and fans on.

Wonderful place! Our family really enjoyed the home and it was so well appointed!

by Maia on 12/15/2018
Great location, well equipped and all around wonderful home. We enjoyed this home very much and will be back. Plenty of space for a large family to spread out. Views were spectacular! Mahalo

It was the perfect pad to come home to after the day's adventures!

by Kathleen on 12/15/2018
This gorgeous space is located right in the middle of Kona town. The ocean, shops and restaurants are just a short walk away. We loved the fully outfitted lanai. So perfect for taking in the sunrise. We also really appreciated the thoughtful additions the hosts left for us like beach towels and a beach umbrella & chairs. It was the perfect pad to come home to after the day's adventures. We would definitely book again. Looking forward to coming back!

Beautiful view! Loved the pool and happy hour. Could use new linens, kleenix and pen and paper.

by Jonathan on 12/13/2018
Ants were annoying. Would definitely stay again though.

Great house for Hawaiian vacay

by Michele on 12/13/2018
Nicely appointed home, away from curbside and lots of privacy thanks to landscaping amid close neighbors on both sides. Generous backyard that grandkids enjoyed. Overall fantastic retreat for son & family from the mainland.

Incredible Accomodations!

by Christopher on 12/12/2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mauna Lani Terrace D203. Incredible view, beautiful decor, great location. We have stayed in a different condo at this property but really enjoyed having both bedrooms facing the lagoon and ocean. The condo had lots of extras- the kitchen had every appliance and utensil you would ever need, lots of extra beach towels, even free weights if you want to exercise. We would definitely stay here again!

Very comfortable

by Jamie on 12/12/2018
Love the sandy patios and the salt pool for cooling off.

Great condo,great view,everything was great

by Schaale on 12/11/2018

Fabulous. More than we even hoped for

by David on 12/11/2018
Incredible! The property is perfect, better than advertised! Location, cleanliness, amenities, pool area, bedrooms, all of it is fabulous. We already booked it for same time next year.  Close to everythig, more quiet than the Village area. Fabulous golf even though windy a few days. 5 stars plus!

Best condo in the complex, for sure!

by Kimberly on 12/11/2018
Stocked kitchen and everyhting you need during your stay. We left some toys for baby/kids, and there are a few boogie boards without leashes plus a chair or two to use. Would recommend the condo, and the management company, but the complex itself isn't much to brag about.

Beautiful !!

by Shawn on 12/11/2018
We loved our stay here!! What a beautiful, peaceful place to relax after a day of exploring this wonderful island. We will be back!!

Beautiful! House is gorgeous inside and out. Very quiet and private and with a view of the ocean!

by Joanne on 12/11/2018
Need to turn on air conditioner in advance of guests arriving. It was very uncomfortable the first night. Other than that very satisfied!

The property is updated and very nice!

by Lucille on 12/11/2018
The property is updated and very nice! Everything was very clean! The views are incredible! Another bonus is that it is walking distance to shops and restaurants. We had a few things that needed attention and the staff took care of them immediately. The staff was very good as well. We would definitely stay at Kona Reef again. In fact, it is our second time to do so.

Great Stay!

by Corina on 12/11/2018
We were extremely happy about our stay, great facilities and close to everything. No noise, 2 pools, great people to spend time with. Highly recommend this place.

Plus que parfait!

by Nathalie on 12/10/2018
Emplacement idéal! Assez près du centre-gauche pour y marcher mais assez loin pour jouir de la tranquilité! Grand condo bien fourni, grand balcon avec vue sur la mer et les couchers de soleil! Il serait temps par contre de changer le matelas (mou et boussu) et la glacière qui tome en morceau. J'ai aimé avoir laveuse/sécheuse dans l'unité.

Great location

by Kathryn on 12/10/2018
Love the location and this complex. while the condo is dated it is clean and well furnished with extra towels, sheets, kitchen appliances, even a boogie board and beach chairs.

Well appointed indoor and outdoor space

by Carolyn on 12/10/2018
The property was clean, welcoming and had every amenity we could possibly need. Customer service was exceptional and we would recommend this company and this particular house to our friends and family. Swimming with the manta rays and the helicopter tour made lifetime memories for our 2018 family vacation.


by Darlene on 12/10/2018
Property was great would go again - highly recommend

We had a wonderful time

by Sheila on 12/10/2018
Great view. Comfortable furniture. Well stocked kitchen (except for dishwasher soap, but we ate all meals in). Loved the ventilation. Both bedrooms get road noise and noise from the neighbor’s ac. We had plenty of hot water ... it just takes a while to get to the shower head. Lots of birds to see! Did I mention the excellent view!


by David on 12/10/2018
This unit is well appointed, great lanai, easy access to parking and pool.

One of the Best Places on the Big Island

by Teresa on 12/09/2018
This was the second time we were fortunate enough to stay at this home. We were able to book this home for our Thanksgiving get together and I can't even say enough about what a great value this home is for a family or group. I have looked at many private homes to rent and this one has some of the best features of any I've found. The four private bathrooms and the a/c are a huge plus with this home, but the big features are the outdoor space and views. Other homes just can't compete with this beautifully decorated home in such a nice area. Kona Coast Vacations is also very helpful and easy to work with. I highly recommend this home and Kona Coast Vacations.


by Mark on 12/08/2018
Place is in a good location for walking around the town , has private parking allocation which was good , clean rooms

We would stay here again.

by Marsha on 12/08/2018
We were happy with Kona Coast and the condo.

Great property! Has everything you need!

by Bonnie on 12/08/2018
This was our 2nd stay at Country Club Villas. Love this complex! This unit has everything you need. Has everything for the beach. We have been to the island several times. Had fun zip lining, did the night manta ray snorkel. We have several beaches that we love. It is or favorite island and would definitely rent this unit again. Thanks for having us!

Well kept and Beautiful

by Carmen on 12/06/2018
Everything was exactly what was offered and then some! We appreciated the late check out on Thanksgiving Day. We had a minor issue and it was resolved quickly. The property was well kept and beautiful. The parking was safe and we never had a problem. I hope to come back soon here. Mahalo Kona Coast

Beautiful place in a quiet area and near downtown

by Michael on 12/06/2018
Loved the place and location. Quiet area with view of the ocean and three pools. Grocery store and other stores right up the street. On a golf course with thee balconies and beautiful rooms with kitchen and cable. Perfect location. Nice to be away from the hustle but only 10 minutes from downtown area and five minutes to nearest beach. I will always stay here and the staff were amazing with concierge service and following up to make sure the trip was great!!!!

Beautiful Home!

by Jodee on 12/06/2018
Beautiful home in a beautiful area. We enjoyed our stay only wish we had booked for a longer time. Kona coast vacations is tremendous! Highly recommend!!

Beautiful home!!!

by Dianna on 12/05/2018
Was a great way to share a trip with my daughters and their family. Beautiful, spacious rooms that accommodated all 10 of us comfortably. Would love to rent again if I can get us all together again!!! My grandsons loved the ocean being only a few hundred feet away and that the lava formation allowed a great lagoon for a nice snorkle learning area and sandy beach without wave actions. They then were not the least intimidate to snorkle at Hapuna, Snorkle Beach, Two Step, or the other 3 smaller beaches we also enjoyed.


by Danielle on 12/04/2018
Fabulous place to relax and get away! Everything we needed and more. Cant wait to visit again!

Beautiful Condo!

by Joan on 12/04/2018
We loved our stay in Waikoloa. It was close to the beach, favorite surfing spot and shops! The condo was beautiful, clean and nicely furnished. Would definitely stay here again!

Book Mauna Lani Fairways 1101

by Blake on 12/04/2018
We could not be more happy with the decision to book Mauna Lani Fairways 1101 for our stay from November 11 - 26, 2018. The property was as advertised and even more. The townhouse styled unit is very spacious with more than enough room to house up to 5 guests. We only used it for the 2 or us. The property was exceptionally clean and maintained in great order for our stay. We arrived late in the evening and the property pre check service had left lights on for our arrival making check-in very easy (as everyone that has stayed in the area before, it can be very dark in the evening). All the communication throughout the booking, stay, and departure process was handled extremely professionally by the staff of Kona Coast Vacations. Booking with a professional management company gave us the confidence that we made the right choice. We support #BookDirect with professional managers like Kona Coast Vacations because they provide all the important services to ensure our stay is the best and saving us having to pay out unnecessary booking fees to HomeAway/VRBO or Airbnb. We highly recommend them and save yourself money and seek them out directly before booking with the online travel booking platforms. The property development came with an amazing outdoor pool and lava rock spa pool that was resort styled in size and scope with less the crowds. However, the best is for last. The property renters all get access to the exclusive Mauna Lani Beach Club with private parking, restaurant, and one of the best beaches on the Kohala Coast. The beach may not be large, but it might be the best places to snorkel in the region. Experience all the marine wildlife to your hearts content in relatively calm waters. Snorkel Bobs at the The Shops at Mauna Lani just a couple minutes away can set you up with snorkel gear. Say hello (from a distance) to the many Honu sea turtles. (little hint, get down to the beach club early such as 8:30 AM to get a cabana and snorkel early before larger crowds show up.) There are many beaches in the region that you should experience as well from Hapuna Beach to Beach 69 or the not so well known Beach 49 black sand beach to name a few. The Fairmont Orchid is literally a 10 minute walk from the property where you can access some great food and entertainment. The Mauna Lani Resort is currently closed until the end of 2019 going through a major renovation and re-build, however, when it re-opens it will provide more restaurants and experiences to the resort area. Waikaloa Resort is just to the south with great shopping, theaters, restaurants etc in the Queen and King Shops. You will also find great stores and restaurants at The Shops at Mauna Lani just down the street such as Tommy Bahamas store and restaurant and Food Land Grocery Store. Some other great places to check out is Waimea (cattle town 2500 feet above) and its great shops and must experience breakfast at Hawaiian Style Cafe (order the pancakes, we dare you). Also take the self tour of the Parker Ranch houses with its deep cattle ranching history and more. Hawi and Kaapau (considered the birthplace for King Kamehameha I) are wonderful historic towns at the north end of the Big Island along the Kohala Coast (make stops at Keokea Park and the amazing views and hike into the Pololu Valley which is at the end of the road). Love mac nuts? Go to Hamakua Macadamia Nut Co in Kawaihae and take a tour and get amazing various flavoured macadamia nuts (wasabi flavour was off the charts) and other baked goodies, tropical dreams ice cream (made in Waimea), and local produced coffee. Take the Mamalahoa Highway from Waimea to Hilo (side excursion to Waipi'o Valley) and see Akaka Falls, many little historic sugar plantation towns, as well as some of the best large waves to watch at Laupāhoehoe Beach Park. We could add the many other places from exploring Kona, volcanoes, coffee tours, star gazing on Mauna Kea. It would take a life time to see all that there is to see on the Big Island. However, if you do, book Mauna Lani Fairways 1101 with Kona Coast Vacations.

Beautiful Condo in Great Location

by Ann on 12/04/2018
This was our third stay at Waikoloa Beach Resort and it was our best. The condo is beautiful and was is perfect condition. It had everything you could possibly need right down to the hand soap and paper towels. The beach chairs, umbrella and small cooler were the perfect addition to make those beach days all the more amazing. The location in the beach resort was also very nice. Close walking distance to the shops and restaurants but tucked back out of the way so it was very quiet. The view was wonderful as it looks out over the pool and Kings lake and also Mauna Kea and the beautiful sunrise. Our thanks to all at Kona Coast Vacations for a wonderful and memorable stay. We can’t wait to return to the Big Island!

Another Great Stay!

by Norman on 12/03/2018
Another great stay in Kona! The home was very clean, great location and had all the amenities. This is the third time renting through Kona Coast Vacation and again, another great experience. You site is great and the home is as you advertised. Keep up the great work and SEE YOU next year!! Norm

Very Satisfied

by Lisa on 12/03/2018
We stayed at the Villa Kai in Kona and were very satisfied with the home. Not only is the location amazing, but the house is great for larger groups as well. We were two families with little kids (5 kids 1.5-9 yo) and everyone had enough space and was happy hanging at home. The pool and hot tub were great for playing and relaxing in. The home was laid out really well - with the main sleeping area in the back - so that we could have company over and the baby could nap all at the same time. The kitchen was well appointed (not top of the line but good enough) and easy to use. Pool floats, snorkel gear and beach towels were all provided. We would certainly stay again! Aloha and Mahalo!

Perfect Family Condo!

Loved staying here.

We loved the lanai and had all we needed for our stay

by Jill on 12/03/2018
We loved our stay at the property and had all we needed. There was an issue with the refrigerator and I don't know that the management company could have been any more helpful - we called on a Sunday and had a brand new fridge installed by Tuesday with lots of attention and repair attempts in between. We even received a credit on our bill for any food that might have spoiled. The condo is great, mattresses comfortable and the lanai was our favorite spot. So close to the pools! The floor rugs and couch cushions need to be cleaned - there was an odor that wasn't "must" from humidity. I suspect a guest had a pet and didn't tell? We enjoyed our stay and would request this space again.

Kona Coast Vacations

Great Condo

by Tim on 12/03/2018
We were so surprised to have all the amenities included at 4106. Great view, great location and very comfortable bed. We slept great . We have a vacation rental ourselves in Lincoln city, Oregon and provide all of that and more so it's nice to be on the receiving end. Please thank the owners for us.

Incredible on the water view....would absolutely stay again!

by Matt on 12/02/2018
Very clean, great kitchen with unexpected amenities like mixer, rice cooker, crock pot etc. Quiet, convenient location (small convenience store across street). Overall excellent experience and would absolutely stay again!!

Our stay in the house was absolutelly amazing.!

by Iana on 12/02/2018
We loved all the amenities and the house is equiped with everything you need and more. The views are unreal and watching the sunsets from the deck was a blast. We will definitely be back again!

It was lovely!

by Janet on 12/02/2018
We enjoyed our stay at Casa de Emdeko with you guys . Yesterday we saw the first whale of the season out in front and flew home last night full of much aloha!!

Great Place!

by Cathy on 12/02/2018
Great place, great location, great vacation. Everything was easy - we actually made a full Thanksgiving feast. Beach club access is great!

Looking forward to coming here again

by Jingyuan on 12/02/2018
Very good house, facing the sea, you can swim in the pool while enjoying the sunset. The room is very clean, tidy and very comfortable, all the daily facilities are available, and we have a very pleasant 5 days here. Holidays, everyone thinks this is a perfect holiday destination, and look forward to coming here again to enjoy the holiday.

This is a wonderful and spacious house in a good place for exploring the Big Island.

by Steve on 12/02/2018
It was great to watch the sun go down from the pool deck. You can't walk to anyplace from the house, so you have to drive, but that's the case for most houses in Kona. It was quite comfortable and well prepared for visitors.  We really enjoyed staying there.

Tamara Staunton Beautiful well appointed condo.

by Tamara on 12/01/2018
Loved the view and relaxing spot.


by Austin Walt on 12/01/2018
Great place to stay not far from the beach

Beautiful view--amazing, really!

by Jen on 12/01/2018
This condo is in a great location, a quick walk to the beach and oceanfront views. We had a great stay--thank you so much!

Great Place!

by Kathleen on 12/01/2018
Great place to stay in Kona. Speculator house, great scenery, very convenient to restaurants and many island attractions. 5 minute drive to the best snorkeling spot. Property is well maintained with attractive garden, and many places to relax and enjoy the ocean view, The pool overlooking the ocean was incredible. We watched the sunset each night from the comfortable lounge chairs. Enjoyed the and hot tub. This house had all the amenities to just relax and enjoy. Highly recommend this gorgeous property.

This place has it ALL!!

by Lee Ann on 11/30/2018
Kona Isle E4 was exactly what we hoped it would be. The main photo is THE view and is only better in real life. It is tastefully decorated and stocked with almost everything. A beach umbrella, binoculars and insulated cups are the only things you may want to bring along. This island has SOOOO much to do and see. Highly recommend renting a jeep and heading out each day to find something new. The saltwater pool just to the right is so much better during high tide but the condo has a lovely pool and great beach area. The grounds are immaculate and tropical. Highly recommend this piece of paradise.

Fantastic views and accommodation

by David on 11/30/2018
The space was a perfect base to explore the Big Island. Views were incredible to enjoy while we were at the unit. Convenient to Kona and all activities on the west side of the island. Highly recommend.


by Janice on 11/30/2018
This condo is ideal if you want true oceanfront living. It is direct ocean front on the 4th floor of Kona Reef. Easy walk to restaurants such as Foster's Kitchen, Humpy's, Bongo Ben's, Huggo's, etc. The unit has recently been upgraded, so all furnishings, appliances and flooring are topnotch. The outdoor chairs are a bit creaky, but that goes with the corrosion of being right on the ocean. There is a foldable chaise lounge on the patio, as well as the bar level table and swivel chairs. The unit is very well-appointed, with everything one might need on a beach vacation, including the greatest beach chairs (can be worn as a backpack with an insulated cooler in the back), umbrella, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment and plenty of beach towels. The unit was VERY clean and there was detailed information in the renter's manual provided. Lots of extra towels, sheets etc. The washing machine and dryer worked well. We loved listening to the waves crashing on the lava rock beach 24/7. Being on the 4th floor, we felt comfortable leaving the patio screen door open, so there was always a nice breeze. There is a nice pool area at Kona Reef, but frankly, you can see more from the condo, so we spent most of our time right there! Enjoyed seeing the dolphins and sea turtles from this perspective! Loved it!


by Heather on 11/29/2018
Pictures don’t do it justice. Best place we ever stayed. Kitchen amenities were amazing. Cooked every meal here except last night. Pool was fabulous! Super clean place. Master bedroom was great waking up to the sunrise every morning from bed. Will definitely come back!

We hope to Return

by Shelley on 11/29/2018
Lots of towels. Property was very clean. TV's in every bedroom . Kitchen well stocked with beautiful dishes and cooking items. Beach front. We loved our stay in room 401.

Great Location

by Anne on 11/29/2018
Great location, love the classic Hawaiian wood and decor. I requested more pillowcases from the property mgr who called and did not receive a follow up. Our unit only had 2 pillowcases and 4 extra pillows in the closet. Also only two bath towels for two people so needless to say we did laundry and I used a rolled up beach towel (supplied by the owner!) as an extra pillow. Well stocked with laundry and dishwasher pods as well as tupperware, reams of coffee filters, trash bags, TP, and dishes. Very comfortable and well appointed.

Great Views

by Bradley on 11/29/2018
Nice layout internally, spacious covered patio, good pool and great views


by Tony on 11/29/2018
The condo we stayed at in White Sands Village #109 was fantastic. When we arrived, everything was sparkling clean. The apartment was well decorated and well stocked with kitchen necessities. We particularly loved the large balcony, with plenty of room for seating, and appreciated the snorkeling masks stored in the trunk there. A few day into our visit, when we called the manager about some problems with a broken window, they were quick to respond and come address the issue. We really enjoyed the condo and absolutely loved its location right next to a great beach.

A pleasant surprise

by Robert on 11/28/2018
Overall it was a excellent property to stay at, it met all my expectations. No smell, comfy bed, clean, minimal bugs enough amenities. I definitely would recommend to friends and family to stay here. I have a few suggestions for the owner to make it even better. Include a little coffee for the morning. We got it late and didn't have time to get coffee on our arrival so the morning was tough. Include conditioner along with the shampoo. Get the sliding glass door rails cleaned and greased. I'm a big guy and it was hard for me to open and close them.

Kona Coast Vacations

Great Condo!

by Don on 11/28/2018
We had a wonderful stay at the condo! It was very clean and in a great location. We walked to the stores, restaurants and the bay. We went in the Jacuzzi every night too which was great. The condo looks exactly like the pictures.

We were SO happy we booked this unit managed by Kona Coast.....

by Christina on 11/27/2018
This is a great unit, we stayed with a teenager and it fit us just fine. The unit is stocked with great added touches like salt, pepper, an ice pack, cooking oil, etc. The balcony has a great sized table. The wifi is good too. We were SO happy we booked this unit managed by Kona Coast because the condo management will not help if you need blankets or something like that. Having a pro management company was nice. The grounds at this unit was my favourite thing. They have two pools and both are great - one looks over the ocean, and the other in the garden. We used the grills and ate outside in the grounds everyday, it is such a lovely space. As a tip call the volcano national park before you drive there - 99% of it was closed to the public and what we did see was not worth the long drive. Aloha!

If you were looking for a beautiful, stunning completely stocked place, you want to stay at this condo!

by Meri on 11/27/2018
Bed was super comfortable . awesome pillows, kitchen completely stocked with every utensil pot and pan you could ask for! Definitely book this unit! Above and beyond! We had Thanksgiving in this unit and we did not have to look for one thing, the kitchen was so adequately stocked! And Gabby with your company was simply amazing! I would give everything and everyone about this six stars out of five!

Perfect for some fun in the sun!

by Trula on 11/27/2018
We loved the condo, surroundings and atmosphere of complex. The condo was very clean and well appointed. We also liked how the bedrooms were divided for privacy. The only issue was the dishwasher rack rollers were missing on one side. There were beach towels and kiddie stuff to take to the beach or pool. Customer service was excellent from the manager. The pool was very nice and the kiddie end depth was 1 foot which was perfect for our grandson to play in. The barbeques and the area in the gazebo were cleaned daily and plenty of tables and chairs for cooking and also eating your food there. The Keauhou shopping center is very close and you'll find most of condo necessities there. We would definitely recommend this condo for some fun in the sun!

A well-appointed condo in a great location

by Deanna on 11/27/2018
We have stayed in many different units at Surf and Racquet over the years, and this is one of the nicest units. The owners have upgraded the kitchen and bathrooms very nicely, and have provided very comfortable furniture and beds. We love the location of the unit because it's on the corner and has great views.


by Kim on 11/27/2018
Beautiful home, great for a family vacation. Good location on the island.

Clean, great views - nice stay, but high fees

by Steven on 11/27/2018
We likes this place - it was clean, stocked adequately, and great views. One day we even had an entire SCHOOL of dolphins swim by the condo - right in front of our lanai! Location was good - providing easy access to the things we wanted to do and see. While it was within walking distance of the Kona town area, we opted to drive (I didn't measure it - but probably a mile or so). Overall - we are happy we stayed here, and one positive I should also mention is that they have a concierge who contacted us early on and offered to help us make reservations at various attractions, like the Manta Ray night dive. That service was very thoughtful, and nicely done. Dave did the scheduling for us, and saved us that work. We found that the AC unit in the living area really didn't help cool things too much, so we turned it off and set up fans (they had plenty of them) to move the air from the bedrooms into the main living area and out the door - which helped a lot. A couple negatives: We have stayed in VRBO condos before, and while this was really nice, the privacy on the lanai isn't what some others have been - we could see our neighbor lanais both left and right, and below - a little privacy barrier would have been nice, but that is in the design/layout, and too late to change that. Not terrible, but I like a bit more privacy. The photo they show in the listing was taken from the door to the lanai, not on the lanai. The fees and taxes are high compared to other listings - and while that information is not hidden, it's important to take note. After staying in this place we moved down the coast to a house with a private pool, right on the ocean. It was a splurge at a much higher cost per night, but in looking back, if you add all the taxes and fees to the cost of this place, it brought the two costs per night a lot closer. Clearly a business has to pay taxes that a privately owned property may not, but it's hard to compare apples and oranges if you are just looking at the cost per night (which is generally our first filter for looking deeper at a property). It would be easier to compare if their price per night included all the fees except the cleaning fees, since those appear to be listed separately for all the places we stayed. We stayed at 4 different VRBO places on this 3.5 week trip to Hawaii - deciding it was better to separate our trip into quadrants rather than try to drive everyone from one location (it IS a big island, after all).
Mahalo for having been our guest and for taking the time to share with us your recent stay. We are pleased to learn that you enjoyed your stay and that our staff provided you with outstanding service. To save yourself up to 10% or more on your next visit, book direct through our website, as many other booking sites charge additional service fees. You will always find the best prices by booking direct. To legally operate a vacation rental, even private home owners are required to pay taxes in Hawaii, some do not & that may have been a part of the rate difference. It has been a pleasure to serve you, and we look forward to welcoming you back the next time your travels bring you to the Big Island! 

lovely and comfortable

by Carmen on 11/26/2018
The place was lovely and comfortable. The kitchen had everything that was needed. We miss it already. We enjoyed the birds singing and the grounds were nice. Parking was okay, sometimes had to park outside the gate but plenty of overflow. Bbq pits worked fine. The water pressure was slow at first but we called and someone got right back to us and fixed it right away. I'd love to stay again and again.

Gorgeous house, great location

by Melissa on 11/26/2018
This was a large, gorgeous house that was perfect for our family (6 adults 5 kids). There was enough room for everyone and the pool, just off of the living room was used all day. The house is in walking distance (approx 1 mile) to Ali'i Drive and it was a short drive to restaurants, downtown Kona, grocery stores and beaches. Having a concierge was nice - we called David quite a bit. We also had a few issues with the house that were taken care of promptly which was nice.

Aboslute gem

by Kristin on 11/26/2018
This condo is a gem right across from the ocean in Kona. This is close enough to shops and restaraunts to walk and was centrally located along the west coast. The views from the lanai were stunning and we had a perfect spot to watch the sunset each night. We watched dolphins in the ocean one morning and there is snorkeling right in the bay. The rental was immaculately clean and every detail was thought of. This was great for 2 couples, as we each had a bedroom and bathroom. A rare find to have A/C in Hawaii and was such a relaxing and beautiful place to stay while in Kona. I would not hesitate to stay here again, all 4 in our group loved the place. We do wish they had a recycling option on the premises. One small note: the internet wasn't working and we tried troubleshooting in the book that was in the condo. Was not a huge issue for our group and would not impact us staying again, but just wanted you to be aware so you can address it for the next guest.

Awamoa place is a wonderful home and our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay

by Gina on 11/24/2018
Waikoloa Village is a great jumping off point, easy access to all areas of the island and a nice escape at the end of the day exploring. House was fully equipped and beautifully decorated. I think I enjoyed coffee in the morning on the lanai best - perfect way to start the day. Communication was perfect and added concierge service a bonus. Would highly recommend this home to anyone staying on the Big Island.

Wake up to waves crashing on the rocks every morning, views of dolphins, and the sound of birds.

by Julie on 11/24/2018
Beautiful views! Great location! Wake up to waves crashing on the rocks every morning, views of dolphins, and the sound of birds. This condo was the perfect place for our family of four to relax and visit with local friends for a week. We enjoyed the pool, snorkeling with dolphins and manta rays, and took in a luau at the Sheraton. Highly recommend all three. House is well equipped with linens and a washer/dryer in the unit. Kitchen was well stocked (we even had what we needed to make Thanksgiving dinner!).

The value of the location was spectacular!

by Megan on 11/24/2018
The views are spectacular! The photos do not do it justice. Amazing value for waking up next to the ocean every morning.

Great house with an amazing pool and hot tub!

by Beth and Jeremy on 11/24/2018
Tons of space to relax and wonderful kitchen to cook in! Thanks for the stay in your great house! We loved it!

Amazing ocean view and fantastic location!

by Charlie on 11/24/2018
The unit has everything you need from kitchen to bathroom. Would love to visit and stay again!

This condo surpassed our expectations......We will come here again and highly recommend it.

by Mikeandlinda on 11/24/2018
You are as close as you can possibly get to the ocean and the lanai is large enough to enjoy it. It's an easy walk into downtown Kona for shopping and restaurants, yet private, too. It's very clean and well-appointed. They provide beach chairs and snorkeling gear—coolers—beach towels. The kitchen has everything you need and the bbq area is fun to use. Everyone was very friendly and the agency was extremely professional. We will come here again and highly recommend it.

The condo is very clean and spacious, and the property managers very responsive.

by Dimitar on 11/24/2018
Great location, within easy walking distance to Kona's waterfront which has numerous shops and restaurants.

This was our first time in
