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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!!

Quiet and a beautiful view!

by Stacey on 12/16/2018
We only wished the second bedroom had a king size bed as well.

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.

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! 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!

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.

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!

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 condo,great view,everything was great

by Schaale on 12/11/2018

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!!

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.


by Darlene on 12/10/2018
Property was great would go again - highly recommend

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.


by David on 12/10/2018
This unit is well appointed, great lanai, easy access to parking and pool.

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.

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!

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 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 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 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 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!

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!

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!

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.
Mahalo for having been our guest and for taking the time to share with us your recent stay. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that our team provided you with outstanding service.
Please be assured that each of your concerns has been shared with our management team to be addressed. We appreciate you taking the time to share them 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!

Perfect Family Condo!

by Stacey on 12/03/2018
Loved staying here.

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!

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

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!!


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.

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!

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.


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!

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.

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.

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 Views

by Bradley on 11/29/2018
Nice layout internally, spacious covered patio, good pool and great views


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!

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.


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.
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.  We appreciate you taking the time to share them 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

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!


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).

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!


by Anton on 11/24/2018
Nice condo in good location. Quiet with great views of the sunrise and mountains.

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 Kona and our trip was fabulous! Part of the reason is the condo we rented (Kona Coast) was fabulous.

by Cathy on 11/24/2018
The bathroom and kitchen had everything I needed and it was super clean. The location was close to restaurants, grocery, shops, beaches, and all other amenities. 30 min drive from the airport. Short walk to a beautiful place called the End of the World. The pool was quite nice as well. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again the next time we're in Kona.

Absolutelly amazing

by Iana on 11/24/2018
Our stay in the house was absolutely amazing. We loved all the amenities and the house is equipped 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!

Perfect Place for a Big Island Vacation!

by Edelen on 11/24/2018
We've been to Hawaii several times, and the Big Island has always been our favorite. On this trip we were delighted to stay at Kuhinanui Way - it's the ideal place for a Big Island vacation! From the moment we walked in, we were stunned by the incredible panoramic mountain-to-ocean views and luxurious, contemporary decor. We loved how the living room opens up to the expansive lanai, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor experience. Every morning was spent sitting by the pool sipping Kona coffee. In the evening, we loved using the gourmet kitchen and grill while watching the sun set. The house was spotlessly clean, and the rental agency was incredibly helpful. The included concierge service was able to recommend a full itinerary of activities and was able to get reservations for a snorkeling tour at the last minute. The location is perfect for exploring the Big Island - just south of Kona, Keauhou is close to the shops and restaurants but away from the hustle and bustle. A shopping center with grocery store and some excellent restaurants (be sure to enjoy happy hour at Kenichi Pacific!) is a 2-minute drive away. The house itself is ideally located on the mountainside to catch the cool island breezes. Even before our last day we were already planning our return visit. We've recommended Kuhinanui Way to several friends, and look forward to visiting again soon.

Outstanding property , with fantastic views.

by Jay on 11/24/2018
This property was outstanding. Our family had a fantastic time during our stay. All our expectations were exceeded

Lots of Steps! Good Location!

by Jeanette on 11/24/2018
The accommodations were very satisfactory;however, this is NOT a handicap friendly place. Lots of steps to get into the condo and lots of steps to the living area and one bedroom. The living space is very spacious! There were a few things that needed to be repaired. Screen doors in one bedroom, light for laundry and internet modem; however, Kona Coast Vacations did a super job in fixing all of these issues and did it very promptly! A good location/place for a young family.

Hawaiian Paradise

by Kathy on 11/24/2018
The condo is very well laid out. The separation of the bedrooms on each side of the unit allowed privacy for all. The large lanai was our favorite place to have morning coffee and evening meals. The view was breathtaking.

We loved all the amenities and the house is equiped with everything you need and more

by Iana on 11/24/2018
Our stay in the house was absolutely amazing. We loved all the amenities and the house is equipped 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!

Amazing house, beautiful pool, great view

by Trenor on 11/24/2018
Thanks, we had a great vacation!


by Jeanette on 11/24/2018
It was one of the most quiet places we have stayed in....however, the closer it got to Thanksgiving the pool located across the street the kids were VERY noisy! This was not the fault of the condo owner! Kona Coast Vacations did a GREAT job in fixing any thing that needed fixed for that condo! Thank you for your promptness! This made our stay very pleasant.

Well Maintained

by Tim on 11/23/2018
B5 was just remodeled and was very well done. Property manager very pleasant and had attention to detail always busy doing something. A hidden jewel, our unit had air conditioning, some unit don't stayers said those units were stuffy but nice.

Highly Recommend

by Andrea on 11/22/2018
We were totally impressed with the quality of our accommodation. It was beautifully clean, provided us the ability to eat in and relax and the information provided both before and on arrival was exceptional. It was close enough to everything we needed and completely suited our needs!

Hawaii, land of little bugs

by Michael on 11/21/2018
The place was relaxing and cooler than staying down on the coast. We drove to all the other beaches anyway so no worries there. Several times each day we would have to kill sugar ants and maybe a cockroach every other day...we figured it was just island life. Quiet and peaceful. Needed larger than single beds for adults. Nice community of people there. Would consider staying there again.
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.  Part of living in a tropical zone, you will sometimes experience issues with pests.  The complex is very good at spraying but sometimes pests will follow the lights and enter.  We would have been happy to send pest control back for you so please know on your next visit please know that we are available if you need us.
We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.
Kona Coast Vacations


by Carol on 11/20/2018
One of the best places we have stayed in Sea Village or anywhere. Well furnished kitchen and linens. Comfy king size bed. Fantastic view. Spinner dolphins in the bay almost every day. Easy to keep cool even without AC. Maintenance management company was extremely friendly and helpful. The couple minor maintenance issues were corrected immediately. Definitely stay here the next time we come over.

Great place to stay

by Steven on 11/20/2018
Condo was very comfortable. Beautiful view

Better than the pictures!

by Elisa on 11/20/2018
This is a beautiful house that more than met our expectations. It effortlessly handled our group of 8 aging from 1 year old to mid 50's. It was clean, organized and the layout was fantastic with a bathroom separating each bedroom. The AC was wonderful, the pool was nice and cool, and my grandson loved watching for geckos. The sunsets are fabulous. We only had to call maintenance once and he arrived in less than 30 minutes and immediately solved the hot water problem - a switch had been flipped on a timer. The only complaints we had were minor and would not keep us from staying again - the knives are very dull, the pans leave something to be desired, and the mattresses were too firm for the 20-somethings but the older generation loved them. You are located maybe five minutes from downtown Kona, which we thought was perfect for those night time gelato runs. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, the yard nicely landscaped, enough parking for our three cars and we would definitely love to stay again!

A lovely property for Hawaii vacationing

by Kim on 11/20/2018
We very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely condo. It is conveniently located near the Keauhou shopping center, within walking distance to good restaurants, a grocery store, and a movie theater. It has a wonderful view. The pools and tennis courts at the facility are very nice. With the addition of just a couple items, this already 5 star property will be really exceptional. Please purchase a minimum of two beach chairs (beaches are so much more enjoyable with chairs), a stand alone fan (the second bedroom and living room really needed this), and a broom (for the sand that inevitably gets tracked in despite taking shoes off outside). We will definitely return!

Excellent value

by Kathie on 11/20/2018
Clean, quiet enough to hear the waves hit the shore. Good kitchen. What more could you ask?

Very enjoyable

by Robert on 11/19/2018
Property was very nice. Worked well for two couples.

Beautiful and convenient spot.

by Manda on 11/18/2018
Great communication.

The pictures don't lie...this is an exceptionally beautiful spot to spend your time on the Kona Coast.

by James on 11/18/2018
The interior is splendidly appointed with gorgeous wood, granite, and tile. The kitchen has all you need, and the lanai is just wonderful. You'll take all your meals there for sure. We could see spinner dolphins in the surf out front, and the crashing waves serenaded us continually. The pool is a great bonus, and the gate leads down to a small beach where you can admire the sunset and watch the crabs scurry over the rocks. The views both south and north from the lanai are amazing. I highly recommend this unit for your Kona stay.

Absolutely breathtaking view! The condo is fabulous

by Berna on 11/18/2018
We so enjoyed our stay on this lovely property. The view is amazing. The lanai is like fabulous, a story-book setting. It was really difficult to leave. The only thing missing was airconditioning, but it is not supposed to be 89 and 90 degrees every day in Hawaii! It is a little over two miles to Kailua, so need a car. It was a perfect Hawaiian setting! Miss the glorious view of the ocean.

Stunning location!

by Maureen on 11/18/2018
Beautiful location, bright spacious unit. Fully equiped kitchen. Would definitely stay here again!

Quiet, clean, absolutely stunning home!

by Leslie on 11/18/2018
Best vacation rental experience we’ve had- great home and great company to work with. David was friendly and helpful. Thanks for making our vacation great!


by Jeff on 11/17/2018
Excellent condo with fantastic view!

Great unit!

by Vicki on 11/16/2018
This is an wonderful unit with a great view. The deck is private and waking up to the waves crashing every morning was a dream. It's close to town, restaurants and shops. Sure, the property is a little older but the unit is homey, clean, quiet, well maintained and well equipped. The only negative is that the unit doesn't have a/c (which we knew ahead of time) but there was some intense heat and humidity while we were there which made for some uncomfortable days and nights. I think it would be a nice upgrade if the owners would install an a/c unit for the benefit of the guests which doesn't seem like a big deal. As much as I loved the condo, I would think twice about staying here again until there's some break from the heat. Seems odd to have a place in Hawaii with no a/c. I have to commend Kona Coast Vacations for their great service, though. They were always efficient, kind, accommodating and responsive to every need. I would book through them again in a heartbeat.

Excellent accommodations!

by Christine on 11/16/2018
We were very happy with our Casa condo. It's very nicely furnished and updated. It's clean and had everything we needed. I was especially happy with the kitchen. Nice cookware and sharp knives are a plus. A few more hand towels and kitchen towels would be nice, but there are plenty of bath towels and wash cloths.

Our stay was great!

by John on 11/15/2018
Our stay at Kona Isle in E4 was great. The proximity to town and other places in Kona was very good. The location to the ocean couldn’t have been better especially being on the ground floor. We could just walk out the back and enjoy sunset. The unit was very well equipped with probably everything you would need, but we only used a small portion of the supplies. If I had to find one thing that I didn’t like it would be the ceiling fan in the bedroom. Wish it would’ve had an in between speed....it was either very high or very low, but that was just a minor inconvenience. Overall for the price, location, and working with Kona Coast Vacations...it was five stars.

Absolutely Delightful!

by Barb & Scott on 11/15/2018
I want to thank you for the absolutely delightful week we had with the kids at your wonderful place in Hawaii. I had seen the pictures knew it had a grand view and was a beautiful house… but its spaciousness was a surprise that didn’t show up in the photos. The kitchen is so huge that four adults and two wiggly kids in there all at once was actually doable! I loved getting up early to sit on the quiet edge of the patio to look out over the ocean as the sun rose behind mountain. I had a lot of fun Googling and trying to identify some of the early birds that showed up: cattle egrets, mynahs, zebra doves, and a couple little yellow birds that I think were Hawai’i amakihi (which sounds like a sushi dish than a bird to me.) We had a delightful vacation exploring your island. I was only too happy to be the designated Grandma while the kids went on their scuba diving adventures. I had fun snorkeling in the bay but have NO desire to do the deeper diving. Scott, however, really enjoyed the opportunity to take a scuba lesson and dive with Drew and Keri since it’s something he’s always wanted to try. Drew and Keri’s adventure diving with the manta rays after dark was REALLY cool… on film. We really enjoyed the delightful outdoor showers, the breeze being free to slip through the house with all the doors open, a glorious soak in the hot tub under the stars after a day of hiking, and happy hour in the gazebo at sunset or during an afternoon cloudburst.


by Sue on 11/15/2018
Our stay was perfect! The house (Kawena5) was amazing! Thank you

Wonderful heated salt water pool and private beach

by Brian on 11/15/2018
Beautiful amenities and very comfortable unit with everything necessary available to renters. Loved the decor and killer shower. The salt water pool and private beach was so inviting, we chose to stay at the property some days instead of venture to the beach. We saw spinner dolphins right off the property's shoreline put on quite a show, spinning and flipping in the air. We witnessed a couple renew their wedding vows on the property's private beach. We met friendly people from all over! We hope to visit again soon.


by Rick on 11/15/2018
It was perfect for my wife and I, we could see the fish array from our deck, and the location is perfect. Property is in a great spot, we had access to nearby restaurants and beaches and coffee, what more do you need? Beautiful views, wake up to see dolphins frolicking around, we could literally see the colorful fish in the water from our deck, and slept well with the waves crashing. We loved it!

Beautiful property and views

by Lindsey on 11/15/2018
This property is beautiful- very up to date and well-maintained. The living room/kitchen area is large and the views are amazing. We often saw dolphins in the morning. The only complaint we had was how hot the place got during the day. There is a small AC unit in the bedroom but it does not cool off the rest of the place. We would definitely return

Wonderful facility....wonderful unit...we will come again!

by Edward on 11/15/2018
6204 is a lovely unit with great views of the ocean from the lanai. Close walk to shopping, dining, beaches. The unit is clean, useable and all the amenities we needed for our seven day stay.

Loved our Stay!

by Candace on 11/14/2018
We loved our stay in Kona! E-4 was a great unit-very well stocked with everything! Perfect location in the complex. Air conditioning would have been nice at times but we managed with the fans. How to definitely return. Mahalo!

Best Experience in Kona!

by Kyle on 11/14/2018
The house was impressive! Open, airy, spacious, very quiet (just the sound of waves and birds) and comfortable. A dip in the pool to cool off was very nice. The location was perfect. Sunsets were amazing. Easy access to the beach allowed for great morning walks / runs. Quick walk to shops and dining in Kona. It was very relaxing and just what we needed.

Great place next to snorkeling beach

by Anastasia on 11/14/2018
Great clean condo with all amenities across the street from the snorkeling beach was ideal. 2 bathrooms and bedrooms opening to a large living, kitchen and dining area provided both the privacy we needed and fun common space. The only suggestion may be to add one more air conditioner in the back bedroom (one window) but we were ok with the fans. We are already planning when to come again and stay in the same condo we loved it so much. Thank you.

Wonderfully spaceous with ocean view!

by Brent on 11/14/2018
This is a great property for larger groups. Fully equipped with all you need for a great vacation. Kona Coast staff take great care of you during your stay. Thanks for everything! Kinsella Family Sherwood Park

Awesome. Can't wait to come back!!!

by Cindy on 11/14/2018
Every thing was perfect Will rebook!

Quiet, comfortable, and open floor plan ideal for a small group

by Rob on 11/14/2018
The home was modern, clean and contained all the creature comforts (wi-fi, tv, spacious kitchen, laundry, air conditioning, etc.). Our five day trip was busy, but at the end of each day, we could relax, eat a meal together, play board games and carry on conversations in an open environment. One master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms were more than enough for privacy. The rooms were clean and contained recent updates with paint, trim, and furniture. The yard was the prettiest on the block and the evenings were quiet and peaceful. We would seek out this property again without question.

Great Villa, miss it already

by Ray on 11/13/2018
The villa was a great choice. Hats off to the owners, beautiful place, maintained and amenities were thought through. The view was 2nd to none. All appliances worked well, furniture tastefully done and appreciated the snorkeling gear. Highly recommended.

Well equipped spacious property

by John on 11/13/2018
We found the unit had a very well equipped kitchen. Also, there was a good selection of beach equipment, which we enjoyed. Of course the location is very good with many things within walking distance. The huge lanai was great, we spent most of our time in the unit outside on the lanai. The air flow was good, we only turned on the air for an hour or so in the evenings to cool off.

Wonderful property

by Anonymous on 11/13/2018
Enjoyed our stay. The unit was wonderful. There is not a washer or dryer in the unit. There are pay washers and dryers in the complex.

Great value, clean, nice condo!

by Dayane on 11/12/2018
Great place to stay. Will definitely stay here again!!


by Aurelie on 11/12/2018
Second stay in this house and not the last time! Again, amazing stay!!

Great condo

by Rick on 11/12/2018
Great condo. Property management was the best.

Clean, quite place to stay. The pool area is nice!

by Brett on 11/11/2018
Thanks for a great holiday! We can't wait to get back

Condo in Waikoloa

by Sheila on 11/11/2018
Our stay at A310 was a good one. We appreciated the quiet of being on the golf course, and around the pool. Also the condo was well equipped with whatever we needed, beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, etc. Also having hand soap in the bathrooms, and clean towels were appreciated as well. All amenities were wonderful! Big enough for a family or group of friends to stay there.

Highly recommended!

by Elizabeth on 11/10/2018
This is a large, well furnished condo in a quiet setting about seven miles from Kailua Kona. It was clean, well appointed, and had a lovely walk out lanai. The grounds are well landscaped and meticulously maintained. The pool was refreshing after a day's hike or a trip to the beach. Truly a place to be enjoyed.

Best condo we ever had!

by Katti on 11/10/2018
Everything was great!!

The unit was very well cleaned and organized.

by Vitor on 11/10/2018
We had a great time there. The unit was very well cleaned and organized. Fully equip kitchen and very spacious apartment. Great support as well, answering our questions quickly! Thanks a lot!

Thank you for a wonderful stay, we're already talking about coming back!

by Jamie on 11/10/2018
What an amazing house! Our family spent a week here, and were blown away everyday during our stay. Amazing views, great location, fantastic local tips from the house owners and a perfect layout for a vacation stay. Our kids loved the house pool!

Great condo at the ocean

by Janne on 11/10/2018
The condo is at a great location right at the ocean with view to town and in walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants. It is nice and clean with all what you need in a kitchen. The lanai is nice but small and without privacy as it can be overlooked by neighbors. Very nice informative folder in the condo.

One of our best rental experiences

by Robert on 11/10/2018
Close to all, clean well furnished...one of our best rental experiences. Well furnished and equipped, close to all activities.

Waikoloa Villas D200

by Anna on 11/09/2018
A very pleasant place to stay - clean, quiet and very well-equipped.

Beautiful house and view

by Amy on 11/09/2018
The view is 180 degrees of amazing sunsets and houses in front are low to the ground and hidden by beautiful landscaping. The pool is perfect and almost all of the rooms of the house have that amazing view. We have rented several high end homes in Kona and this was the best.

Simply Amazing and Beautiful Home!

by Tyler on 11/08/2018
Incredible Ocean Front Home that is your perfect vacation getaway! Extremely well maintained and very clean. Our favorite thing to do was open the doors on the main level which made you feel you were right on the ocean. If you get a little hot you can take a dip in the beautiful pool. Walking distance to town and food. Highly recommend this property to anyone.

Kona Treasure

by Jon on 11/07/2018
My stay at this house introduced a new appreciation for exceptional craftsmanship, gardening, and art. The house was very well put together and felt like a true home. It was a hop, skip, and jump away from the airport making things a breeze. Each day we walked to town (walking distance to Kona Brewing:). On the way home we always walked a beautiful trail which was right on the water line. The owners of the house gave some incredible recommendations on restaurants (my favorite was Umeke's). When going their I highly suggest the Poke Bomb. Thank you for sharing this treasure.

Great Location

by Thao on 11/07/2018
Our family of 6 adults stayed at the Kahalu’u Beach Villa #303 for 3 nights. The house was great,clean and spacious, plenty of room for everyone to relax and chill out. All linens and beach towels were provided. The location was great, just across the road from Kahalu’u Beach park. We really enjoyed our stay there. I would strongly recommend this house to everyone.

Clean and comfortable

by Dana on 11/07/2018
We recently returned from a trip to the Big Island in October and we stayed in Country Club Villas #117. The condo is tastefully decorated and is just as depicted. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen is well appointed with everything we needed to prepare and serve meals. They even have a gas grill on the lanai for grilling. They do have a couple of beach chairs, and snorkel masks in one of the closets, but no other “extras” for the beach, so you’ll need to buy your own boards, etc. The condo is on a lower level, so the lanai felt extra spacious. It was hot while we were there, but using the overhead fans seemed to keep the air moving in the unit. We loved our stay and would definitely stay in this unit again!

Really nice place

by Gary on 11/07/2018
Very clean great view had everything we needed good location

Our stay was very good. The condition of the unit was very good.

We had a wonderful time! The house was super clean and had everything we needed. Mahalo!

Great home away from home!

by John on 11/07/2018
Stayed two weeks and found the unit to be a wonderful home away from home. Everything in the unit was clean, well stocked, and well taken care of. Being plant based eaters, we were specifically looking for a unit with a good kitchen, and we loved the updated kitchen and the quality cooking utensils that were supplied. We were even able to find some great Vegan restaurants in the Kona area (make sure you check out Herbivores and Evolution Bakery!). The Case de Emdeko facility is beautiful and well cared for. The salt water pool is amazing! They have a very friendly team of people who are constantly making sure the area is clean and well maintained. Before we booked, we had noticed some comments about noise levels and parking issues, but we personally didn't have any issues with parking or noise. Because the Condos are set back away from the main road, you do not have any of the noise from Alii Drive. Even with this unit being right next to the middle swimming pool, we still did not feel there was noise issues. A huge plus is that we were able to hear the waves crashing each evening as we lay in bed. Personally, we feel this was a great place to stay, and a great experience. Both my wife and I will highly recommend to our friends, and will plan to return! Thank You!!!

Beautiful Stay

by Louis on 11/06/2018
We enjoyed a wonderful flat in a great location. Away from the noise but a short walk to the town of Kailua-Kona, we enjoyed cooking in our beautifully appointed kitchen as well as dining out in several nice Big Island restaurants. The facilities were immaculate, the bed was comfortable and the view from the comfortable, private lanai was tranquil. We explored four different beaches within hour’s drive and enjoyed each for its unique features. Visiting Volcano National Park was a highlight and I recommend a visit to anyone looking for a different Hawaiian day trip. The Staff and Management of Kona Coast Vacations were helpful and responsive from my initial phone call to the email at check out. They are reliable, helpful and professional. I would gladly recommend Kona Coast Vacations and look forward to using their service in the future.

Super Appartement, mit perfekter Ausstattung

by Peter on 11/06/2018
Die Anlage ist sehr gepflegt, der Pool ist toll, und das Ortszentrum ist auch nicht weit weg. Auch als Unterkunft mit Kind zu empfehlen.

Nothing to improve the place was great !

by Roice on 11/05/2018
It's a clean place to stay! It's about a 5-10 minute drive from town which is nice and also close to several surf spots. It is walking distance from the coast as well but you cannot swim there because it's a rocky shoreline. Other than that we loved the place and it was cozy and comfy and they were extremely timely in responding and giving us information about the island!!!

This house was perfect for our family.

by Bree on 11/05/2018
We definitely enjoyed everything about it. It is fully equipped with everything you could ever need. The wi-fi definitely needs some updating or fixing as we were not able to use it and my kids had homework to complete. Other than that this home is perfect.

It‘s a perfect place to stay, we would definitely come again!

by Sandro on 11/05/2018
We were really happy about the perfectly equipped condo, it had more than we needed with a lot of attention to the details. It‘s a perfect place to stay, we would definitely come again. Mahalo nui loa.

Unit 103 is very well situated for touring the island!

by Lee on 11/05/2018
It's also not in the super hustle bustle of main downtown Kona which is very busy. It's a quiet place to enjoy sitting out on the lanai. The swimming pool was a great way to cool off. We were there during a fairly hot/humid part of the year and the pool was a welcome relief

We really enjoyed our stay!

by Carol on 11/05/2018
The space was clean and beautiful.

You won't go wrong in K-1!

by Michelle on 11/05/2018
We've been renting properties on the Big Island since 1999, and this two-story town home at The Islands, a low-density development in Mauna Lani, is one of the best. The unit has been extensively and beautifully updated/upgraded, is very close to the BBQ/pool area and looks out on a huge expanse of lawn, plants and trees. The furniture and art work are tasteful throughout, and the kitchen is stocked with every imaginable small appliance, as well as plenty of stemware, flatware, crockery, and pots and pans. The rental company, Kona Coast Vacations, was excellent; staff responded immediately to all communication and addressed a couple of minor issues at check-in promptply and professionally.

Enjoyed our Stay

by Volker on 11/05/2018
Wwe enjoyed the stay in our flat very much. It was a luxerious house and we appreciated it so much. The only thing we want to criticise was the noise caused by machines which trimmed the golf green starting at 5.45 am already We would recommend to postpone this activity to 7.00 am

Great experience!

by Wayne on 11/04/2018
Property was exactly how it was described and we were not disappointed! Great location and view of the ocean from the lanai. Property was extremely well kept and clean. Will definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it. Our concierge, David, was also extremely helpful in planning our trip and ensured that we got to fully experience the best Kona has to offer! Thank you Kona Coast Vacations!

Awesome location for this condo

by Angel on 11/04/2018
Awesome location for this condo, watch the sunsets and boogie boarders and surfers shred the waves. We really enjoyed staying at this place and would definetly stay there again. It was fully furnished, even the kitchen was stocked with most everything you need to cook. The view is epic.

Just as it was pictured....beautiful, spacious, easy, comfortable

by Ellen on 11/03/2018
We rented this house for a birthday celebration with our children and grandchild. We were all quite pleased. My kids were very impressed and said "this is how the rich live." The house is a five minute drive to a great snorkeling beach and about 10 minutes to downtown Kailua Kona. Everything worked well and the couple of little things that needed fixing were taken care of right away by staff. The only minor complaint we had was there was traffic noise from the road going down to the beach. The early mornings were particularly peaceful. One morning, the entire sky was orange. We would recommend this vacation house and if we returned to Hawaii, we would definitely stay here again.

View and location

by Richard on 11/03/2018
Great direct ocean view, and great location. Lots of fans in the condo to help with the heat and humidity.

Great condo but it was Hot!

by Melissa on 11/03/2018
This condo is spacious and clean! We knew there was no A/C when we rented it. However, it was very hot in Keauhou during our stay(Oct.) and since this condo is below ground lever meaning it is at ground level out the back but the front has a stone wall in front of it which doesn't allow the winds to blow through the condo very well. But the complex has 3 beautiful pools and we either went to the ocean or the pool to cool off. The kitchen is well stocked and we loved the beach chairs, umbrellas, and boogie boards that are provided. So we enjoyed it all but being rather warm.

Wonderful property well managed

by Gary on 11/03/2018
This is a well stocked, clean, spacious studio condo in an unbeatable location. White sands beach was fun to watch, a little too much shore break for the average swimmer. We saw far more reef fish from our lanai than we did snorkeling. We enjoyed the comfortable, secure pool . temp was just right. The surf is loud and non stop, you either love it or hate it. This is one of the few units in this complex that is airconditioned. That, along with multiple inside and outside ceiling fans, made our sleeping and our overall stay very comfortable. Pests in the unit were not a problem as long as we kept things clean, and managed the garbage everyday. Although we were warned about it ahead of time, the construction noise below the unit was annoying during work hours. Strategizing when we would sightsee versus be in the unit was the ticket, along with advice from Kona Coast vacations. Kona Coast Vacations was wonderful to deal with.

Best vacation ever

by Colleen on 11/02/2018
We had 8 days of total relaxation and fun. The condo was just like going home. You could live with your door open, enjoy the view and the warm breeze. We thoroughly enjoyed the home, pool with hot tub and the well maintained grounds. Close enough to town that we could take our morning walk and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way. Relax with a good cup of coffee and be back with in minutes to explore the Island. We will be hoping to return soon.

The place is gorgeous

by Peggy on 11/02/2018
We loved the place it had everything we needed and then some. The welcome basket was a nice treat. We loved the pool and used it a lot. The view from the balcony was beautiful. We had some electrical problems but we called and the electrician fixed the problems. The outlet in the master bedroom still won’t handle more the one plug. The lava rocks by the pool are very pretty but very difficult to carry luggage over and there is no other way to get them into the house.

Exceeded our Expectations

by Todd on 10/31/2018
Our group of eight stayed at Papala Place in Kahakai Estates during the 2018 Ironman World championship in October. The property far exceeded our expectations and was in outstanding condition. The service provided by both Dave (Kona Concierge) and Kona Coast vacations was helpful and very responsive. Would highly recommend this property as quiet and restful featuring high end decor and appointments.


by Darin on 10/31/2018
We had such a wonderful time!!! I'm not sure if the owner knows about the air conditioning. It worked great but it was loud. It was not a problem at all, just thought they may want to know! The condo was lovely and we spent mornings and evenings on the lanai! Thank you again, it was WONDERFUL!!

Great Place!

by Martha on 10/31/2018
Great place to stay when visiting Kona. Good location close to Kona town - very walkable. All the amenities were as advertised and well stocked. Great to have a fully stocked kitchen plus an assigned parking space very near the front door for less than the price of a hotel room! Enjoy the sunset crowd down by the water every evening and refreshing pool to cool off.

Magnificently situated on the Rocky shoreline

by Erik on 10/31/2018
Magnificently situated on the Rocky shoreline. Spacious lanai. Breezy feel. You could not ask for a more immediate experience of the Kona coastline. The waves constantly wash ashore just below the lanai. We spent many hours lounging outside, watching the waves and the changing weather. And every night we fell asleep to the sound of surf pounding just outside our bedroom window. The location on Alii Drive is ideally convenient, with easy access to Kailua restaurants, the main highway, and beaches and snorkeling spots to the South. This condo is a magnificent way to get the most out of a visit to the Big Island.

Alii Villas 227

by June on 10/31/2018
This was our first visit to the big island. The place was Centrally located, clean and stocked including beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels and coolers. nice ocean view and breezes. Will consider staying on future visits. We can’t want to see more!

The view from our room was beautiful

by Maralee on 10/30/2018
The location was perfect and very convenient. We would definitely stay here again.

Great property!

by Beverly on 10/30/2018
t met all our needs and expectations. Would definitely sign up for the property again if we return to Kona. A/C was wonderful!!!!!

We highly recommend this property.

by Jill on 10/29/2018
The view from the porch and the condo were great. We really enjoyed having a kitchen and being so close to restaurants and other attractions. It was very clean.

Enjoyed this condo and the location

by Ronald on 10/29/2018
This condo was perfect for our family. The kitchen had every tool to make perfect gourmet meals. All appliances and TV’s worked, no problems. It was pretty quiet, which was nice.The downstairs beds were not very comfortable, and could use some new mattresses. Otherwise we would probably consider staying there again.
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 did pass this along to the property owner & the twin beds have been replaced.  We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.

We would definitely return.

by Barb on 10/28/2018
Great location. Pools were nice.

We wouldn't stay anywhere else in the future!

by Andrea on 10/28/2018
A wonderful stay. The photos of the property don't even do it justice - gorgeous views, fabulous pool, perfect for watching the sunset. Lovely little touches made this the perfect stay.

Well equipped unit, great view

by David on 10/28/2018
We enjoyed the area. Although we did not contact the concierge directly , the advice provided was helpful.

I recomment this stay alot !

by Keld on 10/27/2018
Thank you very much for the Best stay ever


by Taylor on 10/27/2018
Wonderful !

Excellent place and definitely exceeded our expectations.

by Nina on 10/27/2018
This condo has everything you need to have a fantastic stay in the Kona area. All the amenities were great and the hosts were very fast to get back to you on questions or concerns. I highly recommend the accommodations.


by Zack on 10/27/2018
Excellent location and unit. Immaculate and well furnished. Love Everything.

Highly Recommend

by Jeff on 10/27/2018
This was our second stay at C217 Waikoloa Fairways and we loved it again!! Only complements! We recommend highly to anyone who needs a home away from home. Hopefully we can get the same place again next year!


by Nelson on 10/27/2018
Perfect exactly describes our stay. We really enjoyed our time at the Waiha Loop Kona Peppa home during our Hawaiian vacation. The House is beautiful and very comfortable. The rooms are large and all have great views. We enjoyed breathtaking sunsets while sitting out on the lanai. The house is located in a very secure location and close to everything. Staying here was definitely one of the hilights of this trip.

Beautiful house, yet even better view!

by Andrew on 10/25/2018
The overview and reviews do a good job describing the house features and its location is hard to beat for the airport, activities, Kailua-Kona, etc. My wife and I spent every morning drinking our coffee on the lanai overlooking the ocean. We would go explore during the day and be back in time for sunset, the view is something you will never forget!

Voyage de rêve

by Diego on 10/24/2018
Excelent, great service, I'll be back soon.


by Debbie on 10/23/2018
The location is fabulous, a corner unit right on the water

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment.

by Lydia on 10/23/2018
This was a brilliant apartment. Our party of 5 adults filled the space but it was spacious and very enjoyable. The view from the balcony is superb and the area is generally very quiet which was great. The communal pool areas were good and the parking facilities were great. I was worried having two cars would be an issue for us but there was always a visitor bay available for our second car. It's within walking distance of a shopping centre with a couple of good restaurants/bars and also walkable distance from a lovely local harbour/bay. Kona Coast were very responsive, we had a minor issue with the door in the en suite bathroom and they confirmed quickly over email. This was true prior to our stay as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment.


by Christophe on 10/22/2018
No hesitation to go there!

Spectacular venue and condo experience!

by Geoffrey on 10/22/2018
Great location, close to everything with excellent ocean views from the top floor balcony. By far the best rental we have ever used. Will use again, if I decide to ever qualify and race Kona again. Cannot say enough great things about this condo.

Kona Isle C32

by Jorge on 10/22/2018
Fue una estancia genial y totalmente recomendable

IM Stay

by Patricia on 10/22/2018
Fabulous location with a private deck right on the waterfront. Condo was nicely updated, clean, and kitchen well stocked with everything you could need for cooking! No air conditioning but location allowed for ocean breezes to pass through. Excellent for Ironman training and acclimatization. Beautiful views including sunsets. Only downside - I was woken a few times by other guests climbing the steps just outside the bedroom window.


by David on 10/22/2018
I was in Kona for the Ironman, and found the appartment to be perfect. Near enough to the action, but far enough away to be very quiet and peaceful. Would stay again if I came back (though I don’t think I will!). Interior is fairly generic, but I appreciated the dishwasher and didn’t have any issues with anything during my stay.

Would be 5 stars but for the construction

by Richard on 10/22/2018
I would absolutely stay here again! This was the perfect location for everything we wanted to do on the big island. We’ve vacationed in the Kona area 3 times now, and this was by far the best spot (for 2 people). We had read that there was ongoing construction taking place... but we didn’t realize just how loud it would be at times. Then again, we were mostly awake early (due to coming from the Pacific NW), and then out of the condo by 9 or 10am to head to a nearby beach. But there were days that the 8am construction start time felt eerily similar to 7:30 (because it WAS 7:30am!). Oh, and we didn’t realize when we booked that we were going to be there for the two weeks leading up to the Ironman! Woo doggies there were a lot of bikers and joggers on the road the last few days we were there! Fortunately, we weren’t the only ones to visit the beaches NOT looking like we were physically fit enough to swim a couple miles, then bike around the island before finishing with a nice brisk marathon. 😉 We had a marvelously relaxing getaway, and can’t wait to head back for more!


by Mark on 10/21/2018
Great clean place. Quiet and comfortable

We were very happy with this 3 bedroom beautiful unit

by Jayne on 10/21/2018
The unit was spacious and clean with all the needed supplies for an amazing vacation from toilet paper to beach towels and chairs and a TV in every bedroom. Drawbacks were only 1 parking spot and a key had to be used to enter and exit the pool. Overall, experience was awesome and is highly recommended.

Super Appartement

by Roland on 10/21/2018
Super Appartement, Sicht direkt aufs Meer. Ca. 2km vom Zentrum und den Restaurants entfernt, hatte aber trotzt Ironman immer genügend Parkplätze im Zentrum (ausser am Renntag, Ironman). Kona Coast Vacation ist immer sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit. Werde sicher wieder bei Kona Coast Vacation buchen.

Excellent for the family

by Anton on 10/21/2018
Excellent location, great views, very well equiped unit with everything we could want. Plenty of space. Comfy beds.

The villa was fresh and clean with a homely feel with an incredible ocean view.....

by Gary on 10/20/2018
A great place to stay , very clean and a lot of care taken by the hosts to ensure the villa was fully equipped for day to day needs and the kitchen facilities and supplies where exceptional. The villa was fresh and clean with a homely feel with an incredible ocean view over the lush golf course. Highly recommended for families. Thank you for a great holiday!

This unit was perfect for our Ironman adventure.

by Petr on 10/20/2018
Well situated, very good equipment. Casa de emdeko is a quite place with good parking. We really enjoyed our stay there.

by Daniel on 10/20/2018
Very beautiful location. Spacious rooms. Well equipped kitchen. We loved and used the bodyboard

The house was spotless. We felt immediately comfortable!

by Sylvie on 10/20/2018
What a beautiful home. Perfect for a nice and relaxing family vacation. The spacious house is in a gated community, very safe, quiet and friendly neighborhood. We loved the huge garden (lovely mango tree). The pool and the outside seating and chill-out area is wonderful. You have a nice view of the ocean and you can watch the most stunning sunsets. We were very satisfied with our stay at this beautiful home. Thanks to your Emails and description the house was very easy to find. We were so excited about the thoughtful welcome gift. What a nice surprise. The house was spotless. We felt immediately comfortable. The kitchen is super equipped and we loved the outside grill. We found plenty of extra towels and bed sheets. During our stay we did not encounter any problems at all, except one of the fire detection alarm systems had a low battery and started to chirp. But other than that it was PERFECT!

We loved the space and had a great time.

by Linsey on 10/20/2018
This is a great place to stay in Hawaii - the unit is spacious, clean, not overly cluttered, the vaulted ceilings and open doors allow a great breeze to flow through. We had a great stay and would come back again. Thank you!

We loved the stay and will surley come back!

by Jessica on 10/20/2018
Everything was excellent!

Great Location We will come back for sure!

by Clau on 10/20/2018
Great location. We stay there to attend to the Ironman World Championships and we were only 3km away form starting line. The apartment was clean and have beautiful views to the ocean. We will come back for sure

Well equipped and furnished house

Comfortable modern furnishings with a well-equipped kitchen and good internet and TV. Convenient, quiet out of town location with a nice pool

Nice apartment in nice surroundings

Mahuahua Place

by Janet on 10/18/2018
We stayed at Mahuahua Place. Though only 3 of us because of family illness, it was a very quiet and relaxing street and neighbourhood. The pool was so welcome both in the morning and late afternoon. The convenience of the location being close to Kona itself was terrific. We couldn’t believe our luck that the 40th Anniversary of the World Ironman competition was held while we were there. What a great event and finding ourselves on Palini Drive late afternoon cheering on the ‘group’ competitors including wheelchairs. Such fitness!


by Ana Lucia on 10/18/2018
Apartamento muito bem localizado, em frente a melhor praia da cidade. Limpo,tudo novo, com todos os utensílios necessárias para a estadia ser perfeita. Ideal para casal.

Best of the Best!

by Nick on 10/16/2018
This was our 8th time to the Big Island and Helemano is by far the best place we have stayed in. Location is fantastic, just 1/2 mile from our favourite beach on the island (Magic Sands) and just 4 miles from town. The accommodation is first class and very well looked after. Highly recommend this property and Kona Coast Vacations overall service as everything exceeded our expectations.

Exceeded Expectations

by Lloyd on 10/16/2018
located ocean front steps away from pool, fitness, and bar/restaurant. space for 3 couples was plenty


by Jasmine on 10/16/2018
This house was the perfect facility for our stay during the IRONMAN World Championship. Thank you for hosting us!

Great location, great value, beautiful place!

by Nick on 10/15/2018
I've stayed in the Waikoloa Resort area many many times, and this condo was right up there with the best of them. Even better, checkin was automatic via email, I got a keypad combination to the door. Didn't have to go see anyone, just walked right up to my room and went in. Brilliant.

Highly recommend....beautiful property!

by Nicole on 10/15/2018
Beautiful property. Great for a large group. So many rooms and beds. Huge kitchen. Breathtaking sunsets. Quick to respond to questions or concerns. Highly recommend.

Very nice and well located!

by Michel on 10/14/2018
The sea view exceptional but no air conditioning when it is hot.


by Lori on 10/14/2018
Great location, clean and spacious area, Quiet, and a few items such as beach chairs available that were very useful.

Beautiful sparkling clean home...incredible views!

by Stephanie on 10/14/2018
We really enjoyed our stay! Great neighborhood and close proximity to other things. The views are incredible!

Beautiful view and spacious apartment!

by Ashley on 10/12/2018
We loved staying here! The view is perfect and it is steps from an amazing snorkeling location. The condo is big and each bedroom has a full bath. I loved the way it was decorated, it felt comfortable and like home. Amenities were also great, washer and dryer worked well and it was nice that a cooler and snorkels were here to use. I hope I’ll be able to stay here again next time!

Well-appointed unit with a beautiful view great location

by William on 10/10/2018
This is a beautiful unit, very clean, very well appointed with a spectacular view. It has a very large pool and the complex is very secure with your own parking space. We will definitely rent this unit in the future. Amy was extremely helpful in securing these accommodations for us.

Beautiful and comfortable unit

by Vincent on 10/09/2018
Quiet, spacious with lots of amenities. Highly recommend this to all.

This unit is marvelous in so many ways....highest recommendations!!!

by Dupertuis on 10/09/2018
I rented Casa 116 for my brother and his wife to be here for my 75th birthday from 19 to 30 October. This unit is marvelous in so many ways. The bed is very comfortable, everything one needs is there and of good quality. The place is decorated beautifully and all the furniture is very comfortable. The unit is located very close to the salt water pool, the BBQs, the cabana area and the beach area. I have to give Casa 116 the highest of recommendations.

Comfortable Large Condo

by Tina on 10/09/2018
This was a large well appointed condo, close walking distance to the coral beach, and a close walk to "A Beach" as well. The lanai was very large and an enjoyable place to drink your morning coffee or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. The kitchen had everything we could have needed, which is always great to avoid eating out at every meal. The bed in the master was also super comfortable. The A/C unit did appear to need a bit of maintenance, where by the last day we could see some ice forming on the outside, but we didn't have a chance to call the maintenance line as we were busy getting checked out. I'm sure if we had called they would have been there to help us out, as we saw several maintenance workers around the units daily. Overall, this was a nice unit with plenty of room to spare as there were only 2 of us.

Great stay

by Deborah on 10/08/2018
Place clean and supplied very well with all we needed for a terrific stay Thank you

Lovely spot overlooking the golf course and coast!

by Pat on 10/08/2018
Had a great time in this very charming condo. Nicely appointed and easy to share. Upstairs loft is a great open third bedroom and bath mini-suite. Enjoyed the two swimming pools and the nice grounds...including the wild turkeys who visited! This place is close to shopping and great restaurants both of which I enjoyed. It is clean and well cared for and I would certainly recommend it to my friends and family. Aloha!

Best Accommodation

by Chris on 10/08/2018
This would have to be the best accommodation we stayed in. The house is huge & very well appointed. The family can't wait to revisit the big island. Kona vacations is a excellent rental management team. Thanks Chris

A nice find

by Jennifer on 10/07/2018
I stayed here with my husband and two elementary school kids and had a great stay. The unit was very spacious, clean and well-stocked with the promised amenities. The overall complex was nicely maintained and cared for and the pool was a good size with plenty of surrounding chairs. While we enjoyed looking at the beach view and scrambling over the rocks to view tide pools, the sand in front of the complex was too course to work for kids sand play. We also found that the ocean was much louder that we had expected, but that was a small drawback to the otherwise great place to stay.

Kona Riviera Villas 203

by Mike on 10/07/2018
What a beautiful view from lanai, having breakfast while enjoying the view, it was great. With only 12 units it was very peaceful and relaxing and useof the pool was never a problem. The grounds were were beautiful and well maintained. Great place to stay!


by Diana on 10/06/2018
Quiet and convenient place to stay in Kona!

Beautifully Upgraded

by Reiner on 10/06/2018
I have been to this complex many times and the beauty and serenity never seize to amaze me . It has been beautifully upgraded and it’s just a joy to spent three wonderful weeks at A310 . The altitude of around 900 ft makes it very pleasant at night compared to sea level Condos . I will be back against and again.

Excellent location

by Cheri on 10/05/2018
Excellent location close to historic Kona. Beautiful view. Pool was fabulous and warm. People very friendly. Fairly secure grounds, well monitored quiet and no smoking on the grounds. the condo itself was perfect. Well stocked. Kona Coast does a great job of responding promptly to requests/concerns. There are no air conditioners in the unit and it was very hot and humid during our stay. so much so we tried to purchase a portable unit but there were non under $200 and we were not about to pay more than that for something we would have to leave end. We got little sleep and had to change often as this is also a 3rd floor suite. We tried relaxing on the lanai but one evening a huge cockroach tried to join us and that was that for evenings on the lanai. I should mention there are none in the suite. The condo itself is clean and very well kept. There are some tiny knats that can be a nuisance but just don't leave food out and its fine. I would not hesitate to rent this condo again if they install air; at least in the bedroom.

Great location for our vacation

by Pia-Kathrin on 10/05/2018
We enjoyed or stay very much. Everthing was just as described. It was clean and well maintained with a nice view to the ocean. We went to the various beaches at Kona Coast and to Hapuna Beach several times and were glad about the body boards, camp-chairs, the snorkel equipment and the parasols. It was also lovely sitting outside for breakfast and watching the golfers. There was a nice shopping mall just around the corner, where you can get everything you need. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. What we enjoyed mostly were the trips to Mauna Kea and to the Volcano Park, which fortunately had just reopened.

Magnificent Condo

by Dean on 10/04/2018
My son Scott and his wife plus one of my closest friends, Joe and his wife stayed in this magnificent 2 bedroom condo for 10 days to be here and help celebrate my 75th birthday. The accommodations in 136 were ideal and completely satisfactory. This unit is very close to the complex and just mere footsteps away from the huge common areas where the BBQs, cabana area, beach and the wonderful salt water pool. I cannot make a higher recommendation for this unit. It was perfect in every way.


by Adam on 10/03/2018
We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at the house! It was perfectly located for everything we wanted to do on the island. Waking up to the ocean waves was amazing. Very clean and beautifully designed with plenty of room. The pool and patio were incredibly big and spacious. We already are wanting to come back. Would highly, highly recommend!!

Beautiful view!

by April on 10/03/2018
It was convenient, the bed was comfy, air conditioning was a life saver, next to a sandy beach (but waves are HUGE). Drawback was that there were lots of ants in the kitchen. David the Concierge was SUPER HELPFUL!

Such a Great Time!

by Jardine on 10/02/2018
My family and I had such a great time staying here. So close to so many great beaches, excursions, and dinning. Not mention the house comfortable fit my entire family for our family reunion. We highly recommend staying here.


by Sue on 10/02/2018
Wonderfully located condo unit, well appointed and comfortable with all the necessary amenities

We loved it!!

by Gladys on 10/01/2018
It was amazing , it had Everything we needed it. Very clean too. My family loved it! And we will come back again for sure.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay

by Bertelle on 10/01/2018
We always stay at the Casa de Emdeko condos when we go to Hawaii. Casa de Emdeko # 306 was well furnished and comfortable. The only negative remark about the condo is the bathroom arrangement. Fortunately it was only my husband and I staying at the condo. Enjoyed the well kept grounds and beautiful flowers plus the salt water pool. It was good to see a gate to drive through on the property. We stayed in another unit last year before the gate. I was getting a bit concerned when a few people using the facilities didn't appear to be staying there. All in all it is a wonderful place to stay and we enjoyed #306. It is well kept and has everything one would need.

Amazing beyond our expectations!

by Christy on 10/01/2018
This was to be a very very special vacation with my husband and my son and daughter-in-law, so I was hoping that I made the right choice in choosing Villa Kai for our stay. We were not disappointed!!! The description was accurate and actually beyond our expectations. Beautifully appointed home with outrageously stunning views and sunsets every night. A jump into the pool for a morning wakeup and another in the afternoon after a day of activities. We did a fishing charter (didn't catch anything), the "must do" Manta Ray night snorkel, and the Dolphin Encounter snorkel. We also did a coffee plantation tour, Octopus farm, drove to South Point and hiked a partially open Volcano National Park. We BBQ'd local Mahi one night and cooked breakfasts in the well equipped kitchen. It was a perfect location close to shopping and restaurants, yet quiet and private in this gated community. The A/C in the bedrooms made sleep super comfortable and we made use of the handy washer/dryer. Kona Coast called a couple times to check to make sure everything was OK and if we had any questions. A fabulous stay and hopefully we will be back to Villa Kai!

All of your amenities are amazing. The location is great and the neighborhood good.

by Barbara on 09/30/2018
Great place to stay with your family. The home is set up for relaxation. We had family and friends that live on the island for dinner. So much area for preparation and entertaining everyone enjoyed our get together. Love all the fresh air and fragrance of the plants and trees nearby. We definitely will stay again

Wonderful house with amazing Ocean Views from the lanais

by Brigitta on 09/30/2018
We had a wonderful time at the west side of Hawaii. The view from this large lanai was just fantastic. The house is very well equipped and we missed nothing during our stay. David from the resort was helpful for any questions, which might arise.


by Susan on 09/29/2018
Everything was wonderful. David our concierge was wonderful/. Book this place you will love it!!!

I'll be back next time.

by Hyungjin on 09/29/2018
Location was good. There was a beach where you could snorkel on foot. The children loved it too. Parking was convenient, too, and washing machine was convenient in house. I am satisfied with the price. I want to go again next time.

Loved this condo- it was beautiful and perfect for our family.

by Caralyn on 09/29/2018
Great sized kitchen, living room, and bedrooms! Would come back again. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Great house with an amazing view!

by Matt on 09/29/2018
Beautiful spacious house with an amazing view of the Kona coast and sunset every night! Kona Coast staff was always available and eager to help! Keep it up!

This house is awesome!

by Cathy on 09/29/2018
The lanai and the pool/spa were so great, it felt just as good staying home as it did going out exploring everyday. The gardens and landscape were so lush and beautiful around the yards. And the decor inside was just perfect. It really gave you the full Hawaiian experience! We were there during some very warm/humid nights. Even with the fans provided in each room and windows open, the upstairs rooms were almost unbearable for sleeping most of the night. But the downstairs was much much cooler with the wall unit. We had the great pleasure of meeting the owners on our way out. They were so lovely. I already felt like I knew them after reading about their story in their house manual at the house. You can tell that they really strive to make your vacation special. The location is just perfect!! I loved that we were so close to everything. The snorkeling was awesome. You have to go to 2 step if you like snorkeling/diving. We found it our last full day there and would have definitely returned had we visited earlier. The luau at The Royal Kona was great (free drinks from 5-7pm!). Some of our group went swimming with the manta rays at night. That was an out of this world experience for them! Definitely utilize Dave or whomever they assign you as concierge. He set us up on some awesome last minute tours. We loved everything about this trip and will most definitely be returning to this magical island!I was so impressed by Kona Coast Vacations. I will only look through their site when I revisit, just to be sure they are in charge of the place. It gave me great peace of mind, and Dave was awesome!!

The place is equip with everything you need to cook with and was clean.....amazing view

by David on 09/29/2018
My family and I stayed here in August 2018. The view from the balcony is amazing and we spent plenty of time on the balcony watching all the boats and relaxing. The place is equip with everything you need to cook with and was clean , neat and tidy. We were scheduled to depart when Hurricane Lane was approaching the island and were unsure if we'd be able to leave. When we called the 24/7 concierge they were very helpful and advised us that we could stay longer if it wasn't safe to leave. The only negative thing I can say is the place doesn't have air conditioning but we knew that when we booked and it wasn't much of a problem with the windows open and fans on. Overall our stay was very pleasant.

The view of the water can NOT be beat - sunrises and sunsets here were a dream

by Karyn on 09/29/2018
The location of this condo is hard to beat! We were just a few minutes drive from some incredible snorkeling spots, a short walk to the nearby ABC store (for toiletry needs), an easy walk or Uber to MANY delicious dining options, and next door to a luau! Everything was so convenient. The view of the water can NOT be beat - sunrises and sunsets here were a dream, and we could listen to the water as we fell asleep. Will definitely stay again, and would absolutely recommend to friends/family!

The size of the condo was perfect, very clean and comfortable, well equiped with everything you need.

by Ramona & Marc on 09/29/2018
We stayed here with two couples. The size of the condo was perfect, very clean and comfortable, well equiped with everything you need. WIFI worked very good. Only the AC was loud, not usable during the night.

unbelievable ocean front

by Richard on 09/29/2018
Very clean and mostly updated unit. The unit was stocked with everything you need (except the food of course). We slept very well at night with the balcony doors open listening to the ocean waves below us. The rental company was very responsive to an issue we were having with the tv remote and were immediately over with a new one. Highly recommend this unit and the rental company.

Great Value

by William on 09/29/2018
Very nice resort with a great pool. Good location. Unit is excellent. If you do not have to have ocean view this would be a great value. Would stay again. Unit is as advertised.

We liked staying here!

by Charles on 09/28/2018
The kitchen is very well appointed and the unit is spacious. Be advised the top floor master is an open loft style, so noise from the main area will come through. Parking spot is very handy and easy. The furniture is nice enough, but not terribly comfortable for lounging. Also, lighting is not bright if you want to relax and read in the main sitting area after dark. We would stay here again.T hank you for being so responsive and helpful.


by Kurt on 09/28/2018
Everything as advertised. Kind and helpful staff. All part of a pleasing and memorable stay.


by Josh on 09/28/2018
Amazing place!!

We loved being able to sit outside every morning and listen to the peaceful ocean!

by Priscilla on 09/28/2018
We were very happy with our stay! The view from the condo was beautiful and peaceful. The home was clean and well-stocked with everything we needed. It was a great location and easy to get wherever we wanted to be. We would definitely stay again, if we ever go back to the big island!

Best accommodation we have stayed in for this whole trip.

by Peter on 09/28/2018
This facility and outlook onto the ocean was spectacular. It was well appointed and has been decorated well with lovely furniture. The pools and grounds are well maintained and we had good privacy even though the front grassed area in front of our Lanai was open to other guests. The large spaces inside were well appreciated by our whole family. It was our favourite accommodation for our whole Hawaii holiday.

Really appreciate everything on this trip. Amazing place with great views. I would happily stay hear again.

by Brett on 09/28/2018
Fantastic views within walking distance to everything you want and need in Kona. The place was wonderful and check in and out was super easy. Could not have asked for a better place to stay.

I could not recommend highly enough.

by Brendan on 09/28/2018
We travelled over with a few friends from Sydney for a friends wedding and were absolutely delighted when we turned up at the house. Great setup, tidy, wonderful views. Ideal for large families or groups. Would certainly go back again. Thanks for a great stay!

I appreciated all of the small touches throughout the condo.

by Matthew on 09/28/2018
Our time in Hawaii was amazing, and the proximity of this condo to downtown Kona was a major plus. The view was wonderful to wake up too every morning. I appreciated all of the small touches throughout the condo. The check in and check out process was a breeze.

Clean and well maintained.

by Dennis on 09/28/2018
Well located well equipped condo in Kona.Has stairs to main level and another flight of stairs to the master bedroom. This unit has a golf course view. Complex has 3 pools and tennis courts.

The unit was perfect! Will use you all again!!!

by Kimmie on 09/28/2018
Kona Coast Vacations was a GREAT find! Customer service was fast & friendly. They were very accommodating and informative. Appreciate their quick responses to our needs. There were no issues at all! The unit was great and will use them again!!! Thank you for making our stay so easy!

Very comfortable stay and the location is great!

by Keith on 09/28/2018
This place is sparkling clean!Amazing views of the sunset from the lanai! Highly recommend this place for your Kona vacation!

Great place and amazing ocean views

by Kyle on 09/28/2018
There were lots of little amenities that were very useful during our stay.

Wunderfull oceanfront complex, quiet and well-groomed

by Ursula on 09/27/2018
Die Ferienwohnung ist hervorragend ausgestattet, der Garten sehr gepflegt, der Pool sauber und der kleine Strandbereich gut mit Liegen und mit Pikniktischen versehen, dazu Gasgrillstationen. Wir würden gerne wiederkommen und es unseren Freunden empfehlen.

Great Condo, Exellent Location !!!

by James P on 09/27/2018
Very nice 2 bedroom condo, clean and well stocked with all amenities. Within walking distance to Kona's restaurants, beaches, shops and farmers market. Costco, Walmart and Safeway are only a short distance away. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

This Condo made our vacation!

by Stuart on 09/26/2018
Clean, well maintained and appointed. Appreciated the location and the ocean front. Stafff and David were very friendly and helpful.

Wounderful stay in a great condo

by Manuela on 09/25/2018
We had 5 wonderful days in that great condo with a fantastic view! The Kitchen was fully equipped and the bed was comfortable! We highly recommend this place and hope to come back soon! Mahalo!

Thank you!

Peaceful & Serene

by Barbara on 09/24/2018
This was our first time to The Big Island & found this condo online by happenstance. What a great choice we made! We simply loved this community & the condo fit our needs perfectly! We will be returning! Mahalo

Wonderful Experience

by Kathy on 09/24/2018
"The Golden Girls" had a wonderful experience at Akoa Place. The house met our expectations and then some. We very much appreciate your efforts to make our trip special and we hope to be back someday. Thanks again.

Our wonderful Kona Vacation !

by David on 09/24/2018
Our extended family of 10 takes an annual vacation. This house was ABSOLUTELY a wonderful choice. It had everything we needed to spread out and also be together...MUCH BETTER than multiple hotel rooms. Our one question was taken care of in 15 minutes ! The pool was a very good extra...to relax in after touring. David, the concierge , had very good input to make our whole experience tremendous. We would love to go back again.

Loved the location and the condo!

by Susan on 09/22/2018
Great vacation.....

Hidden gem

by Matthew on 09/22/2018
We were very pleased with this property due to its proximity to other Kona activities and impressive views from both inside and the balcony. It's within walking distance of many things which saves the headaches of finding parking, but being right on the beach there's no traffic noise or large crowds to contend with. I debated whether or not to remove a star due to an issue with the air conditioning. It was quite noisy and clunking from the time we arrived and kept us awake during our first night's stay here. However, one call to the property management company and someone was onsite the same day and found the problem. I don't believe this noise started suddenly and it probably could've been noticed and repaired some time before our visit but their willingness to address the it as soon as it was reported was great customer service. The part wouldn't arrive during our visit but we managed to keep the air cool and the next guests likely won't have to deal with it. Aside from that the stay was perfect. There are chairs, pool noodles and other miscellaneous beach items in the closet available for use so check here first before renting something. The kitchen has a full size refrigerator/freezer which is nice. Keep an eye out the windows and you may see spinner dolphins and sea turtles like we did.

Best view ever!

by Barbara on 09/21/2018
We enjoyed the unit - well stocked, clean, a great view and the entire complex was very pleasant and well cared for. The unit comes with ample fans but there were a couple of times we wished we had air conditioning. We would return here - quiet and convenient.

Lovely place to vacation

by Marcia on 09/21/2018
No complaints from us. Kona Isle B38 is a great rental. The condo is tastefully decorated and has most things you might need during your stay. It has been well taken care of, the only problem we had was with the dish washer, it wouldn't drain completely but that was taken care of within a few hours of calling to report. Comfortable furniture and heavenly air conditioning. The manager does a great job of seeing to upkeep of buildings, grounds and is an asset to this resort.

Beautiful House

by Dana on 09/20/2018
Beautiful house and the location was very convenient We loved the privacy of the design of the house, with seven people, this is very important. The temperature in the house made for wonderful sleeping. We enjoyed the sunsets, however a little obstructed by the house next door.

Beautiful Condo

by Samuel on 09/19/2018
Lovely place. Had a fine time. Air conditioning could be better but was adequate. Also would recommend front shades on sliding doors. Otherwise perfect! Great location as well.

Great Location

by Anonymous on 09/19/2018
Loved the condo. Really enjoyed the location. I always stay at The Casa De Emdeko when I visit the Big Island. The only problem we had was the water pressure in the condo was horrible :(( It was REALLY difficult to shower and wash our hair (Everyone in the condo had LONG hair) and do dishes. But other then that....It was great!


We are so sorry that you experienced poor water pressure during your stay.  Be assured that the problem was addressed upon your departure.  We hope that you think of us in the future when returning to the Big Island!


by Cornelia on 09/17/2018
The property and condo we're beautiful. My only complaint was that the bedroom was very hot since it was on the opposite side of the apartment from the window unit air conditioning.

Nice, clean tidy unit

by Kerryn on 09/17/2018
Great spot, so close to town. There was everything you needed for a home away from home. The kitchen had everything you needed.

It was Wonderful!

by Mark on 09/17/2018
My husband and I stayed in Hale Kona Kai 410 and it was wonderful!! We sat out on the balcony and ate fresh papaya, coffee cake, and fresh coffee which we had bought from the local Safeway store! We watched the waves come in and watched turtles swimming in the clear water. We saw schools of fish from our balcony! We were definitely glad that we had air-conditioning; since, we stayed the 6th of July through the 13th of July! The place was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the view was amazing! What was super nice: being allowed to stay a little longer past check-out time because no one was booked immediately after us! Since our flight left rather late at night, we were able to relax a little longer and enjoy the ocean! Thank you!

Great Location

by Leon on 09/17/2018
Our first time to Hawaii was made easy due to the great location and the amazing amenities your apartment provided...there were 3 of us..the whole apartment was immaculate and had everything we needed ... plus more..it was clean and everything was of a very high standard...our 6 days were problem free. we would choose this apartment again. Mahalo

Hale Pohaku

by Shawn on 09/16/2018
They helped us every step of the way after we had to make a last minute change and move out of another condo that was booked with another company. They are definitely the team you want booking your next vacation to Kona.

Incredible property!

by Warren on 09/16/2018
Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home for our vacation with our friends. The home had the most amazing views and a great location! The kitchen had plenty of room and was well-stocked for preparing meals for our large group. The living room was very accommodating and we really enjoyed having the doors open to listen to the ocean. The house was super clean and looked brand new and we had plenty of linens and bath towels. We enjoyed the privacy but we were still close to all of the restaurants and shops in town. We also enjoyed exploring the beaches along the coast; especially Hapuna. Most of our vacations are focused around being on the water, and there is nothing better than laying in bed and listening to the waves crash on the beach and have the privacy of our own pool. We have been to other Hawaiian Islands, but this trip and our stay at the house was our favorite! We visited in September and the weather was hot during the day so the AC was a plus to have at night. Our only complaint is that there wasn’t any beach chairs or coolers to use, other than that our stay was wonderful!

Aloha and Mahalo for the nice review and comments.  The property owners were glad that you enjoyed the AC, this was a new addition to the house for your comfort.  They also took your advice and purchased new beach chairs and a cooler bag for guests use.  Thank you again for your comments and we hope to see you again soon!

Amazing experience!

by Carl on 09/16/2018
After leaving the airport, the condo was easy to find and close to the heart of Kona. The place was very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, even for myself who is experiencing back issues. The view from the Lanai was beautiful and would book this condo again.

Lovely and Well-Appointed Condo

by Victoria on 09/16/2018
This condo had everything our family needed for our week stay, including peace and quiet. The rental company won't admit this for good reason, but there are some condiments, beach chairs, sand toys, and an umbrella, and a few flat balls left by other guests. Highland Shopping Center with several restaurants and a large market was a close drive. The market had a good selection of food and various other items. The Queen's and King's Market Places are a short drive and often had evening music, hula dancers or a farmer's market. The King's Marketplace has a petroglyph tour with Mikaela. Wonderful. We also visited the Hilton Waikoloa Village. It is free to visit and we ate there and had our parking validated. It has lagoons with tropical fish, a tram, boats, art, and restaurants.Waimea and Waipio Valley were worth seeing and not too long of a drive from the condo. We certainly enjoyed our stay here.

Wonderful stay

by Samuel on 09/16/2018
Wonderful stay. Enjoyed the property; no complaints. Great snorkel/dolphin tour recommend by David-one of the highlights of our trip.

Great View nice quiet complex

by Kathleen on 09/16/2018
The location and view were great.The condition of the condo was adequate. I booked it knowing that there was no air conditioning and thought that would be fine. I was wrong. It was hotter than normal due to low trade winds and the rooms were 95 degrees in the afternoon. The pool was also very warm and was not the needed escape from the heat. Next time I come to Hawaii I will look for a place with AC.

Quiet and peaceful!

by Kim on 09/15/2018
We stayed for 10 nights and couldn't have been happier. The unit had everything you need including, very nice beach chairs, sun umbrella, boogie boards, beach mats, cooler bag, snorkel fins and a few other things. The condo grounds are beautiful and the condo manager Brian is always hard at work. We loved that it felt more like home then vacation, quiet and peaceful! We will definitely be back

Very beautiful place! loved it there will return again!

by James on 09/14/2018
Very beautiful place! Everything was outstanding! Highly recommend this home! the views were outstanding!

Our vacation was made all the more better due to your outstanding hospitality- thanks for a memorable week in Kona !!

by Angela on 09/14/2018
The most AmaZziNg views in an incredible suite with updated kitchen, floors bathrooms. Comfortable, homey, secure and with all amenities needed and done. Pool and hot tub added bonus. Just beautiful!!


by Tingting on 09/14/2018
Convenient location and great view. Would be perfect if there was AC as the temperature was in the 90s when we visited.

The place looks even better in person than the pictures.

by Quinn on 09/14/2018
What a wonderful place! Gorgeous, 180 degree views of the ocean, just a couple of feet out the window. We enjoyed eating on the lanaii and I loved the fully equipped kitchen. We didn't have to purchase very many spices to cook the occasional dinner. I took my family here for my 10th anniversary. It was awesome. Within walking distance to the Magic sands beach and only a couple of minutes to the restaurants off of Ali'i drive. We went right after hurricane Lane, and everything was very hot and humid. We enjoyed the beautiful pool often. The only thing that could have made the location and place better was air conditioning. As it was, when the wind blows the temperatures were comfortable. The house is amazing and very well equipped. We were surprised to find a Pack and Play (even though we brought our own) and tons of beach / snorkeling gear already in the house. We couldn't have asked for a better location. The property management company was very helpful when we landed and I appreciate the large book of info they left for us in the house. I hope you enjoy this location as much as we did! Mahalo!

Great location and a responsive staff.

by Anders on 09/14/2018
We loved the ocean view and short walk to restaurants and shops.

Could not have asked for a better place to stay.

by Brett on 09/14/2018
Fantastic views within walking distance to everything you want and need in Kona. The place was wonderful and check in and out was super easy. I would happily stay hear again.

Everything and More

by Angie on 09/14/2018
We were looking for an affordable home with a pool and view for our family of 7 adults - this home delivered on all counts. The views were spectacular, the kitchen stocked with everything needed - all the rooms were nice sized and the Master was lovely with it's own Lanai. And the pool was amazing. The location was convenient to both downtown Kona with shops, restaurants and groceries and close to Captain Cook for great snorkeling. We appreciated the beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and snorkel equipment, they were all put to good use! We had a wonderful family vacation with just the right mix of activities and family time on the lanai and the pool. We would highly recommend.

Nicely appointed with a great location

by Stephen on 09/14/2018
The unit was nicely decorated and clean. The bed was very comfortable. However we had an issue with the a/c in the bedroom not working. The maintenance man Bill was very accommodating and brought some fans. However it took to the middle of our stay to fix the a/c since we were waiting on a part. The management company did everything they could for us. In particular Amy, Mckenzie, and Bill went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The location was near to town and we enjoyed eating at Island Lava Java a number of times during our stay. (if you are going to eat there more than once I recommend joinng their loyalty club for discounts) We were able to do a manta night dive and a shore dive down by the City of Refuge before things were affected by Hurricane Lane. I would definitely recommend this unit to someone looking for a place to stay in Kona.

Comfortable Place to Stay

by Rapp on 09/10/2018
My thanks to the staff who went above and beyond to help me book a last minute work trip. Within minutes of my request, I had several great choices that fit my needs for WiFi, location, and price that I could immediately reserve and confirm. This property was everything that I asked for in a small resort with easy access and secure parking. There is a small store just in front of the parking area that carried bottled water and coffee packets so I didn't need to go very far to start my morning. The resort was clean both inside and outside. There was some daytime maintenance work near my unit, but the noise level was minimal and lasted only a few minutes. Even though my cooking consisted of eggs and toast, the kitchen was fully stocked for a real cook, just like a home away from home should be, and with new appliances too. I was able to pack light because of the washer/dryer stack inside the unit so I could conveniently do a quick load of laundry during my stay. Thanks again to Kona Coast Vacations for making my booking experience a pleasure, and for welcoming me to the island with a comfortable place to stay in Kona!

absolutely loved our accommodations

by Matthew on 09/10/2018
We stayed at Casa de Emdeko and absolutely loved our accommodations. The condo was clean, well-stocked with supplies, and in a great location. We stayed for three weeks and really got a feel for the place. There was a problem with water pressure, but a quick phone call to Kona Coast Vacations got a rapid and effective response. We certainly look forward to the chance to go back as soon as possible.

Amazing waterfront beach house!

by Gordon on 09/09/2018
This house is amazing! It was super clean, well maintained and comfortable. It has Large bedrooms and bathrooms, tons of open space, and modern decor/appliances. It’s in a great location, close to shopping, yummy restaurants and the airport. Our favorite part was the view! All the back doors (including the master bedroom) open up exposing the amazing view and sound of the waves! You can walk right out and swim in the pool, explore the lava rocks, or walk a short distance to the beach! We would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone! We can’t wait to go back!

Beautiful estate

by Nocito on 09/09/2018
We stayed here for the Queen Lilli race mainly for its proximity to the race site. The description and pics were beautiful. We did not expect the house to be more beautiful than the picture. It was lovely and very comfortable. We felt right at home. The house is spacious and perfectly laid out. We were able to walk to the race site which was a total plus. The communication with the Kona Vacations staff and David our concierge was A+. They answered all of our questions, concerns and made all arrangements we requested. We were so sad to leave as they made our stay one we will be talking about for a long time. We snorkeled we th the dolphins , mantarays, zip lined, helicopter tour, coffee tour and raced the Queen Lilli. We visited the beautiful beaches on the island, utilized the fabulous kitchen as well as eat at the local restaurants that weee in walking distance. Quinn’s was our favorite. There’s plenty to do and David will help you arrange everything !!

Beautiful ocean view house

by Jackie on 09/06/2018
Beautiful and comfortable home right on the ocean with amazing views! This home is well maintained and has beautiful landscaping and a pool in the backyard viewing the ocean! This place can accommodate a large group and is in a great location close to many activities, shopping and beaches! I would highly recommend staying here and waking up to the sounds and views of the beautiful ocean!

The most amazing house I've ever stayed in!

by Sandy on 09/06/2018
Awesome house with the most gorgeous view! Loved all the amenities especially the pool. The kitchen was great and we had the whole family together for meals. I would gladly stay here again!

Amazing Kona rental house!

by Bobby on 09/06/2018
This place was great! We had family from both sides of the country converge here for a family reunion / vacation. The house very comfortably accommodated our party of 12 with room and bed space to spare. The house was in great shape and looks to have been very recently re-modeled. They did a good job tying in the local elements with modern comforts. The kids loved the pool! The adults loved how convenient the house was to downtown Kona, the airport, and shopping... there was even a Target and Costco just a few miles away to stock up on food for the house. The community is private and gated which was great for child safety and there was a small beach walking distance right in the community itself. We were even given a concierge contact to help with planning activities and excursions around the island. We had a great time and our own little piece of paradise... even if it was for only a week. We would definitely stay here again.

Absolutely amazing

by Brittany on 09/06/2018
This house was awesome! I went with my whole family and I was worried that it would feel crowded but it was the opposite. We had so much space! And then the common areas were so massive that we could all spend time together without feeling like we were on top of each other. The house was gorgeous. The beds in the rooms were super comfy: it's the first vacation I've had where I didn't miss my bed. The pool was great too and we were so close to the beach. 10 outta 10 I highly recommend!

WOW... Love it..

by Kolby on 09/06/2018
Absolutely loved our stay. The house was even better than the pictures. We had a family of 11 in the house including 4 kids. The kids loved the bunk room, The rental company was nice enough to let us know we could bring our own xbox because the room was all hooked up and ready for it. The mornings were my favorite times it was so incredible to open all the sliding doors and feel the ocean breeze. The beds were very comfortable and it was really cool to know everything was new. All cutting edge appliances and top end finishes. When we wanted to go out it was so convenient to have down town Kona within walking distance. We will definitely be back.

The best vacation in a decade!

by Lee on 09/06/2018
Great place to stay very clean, comfortable bed, very quiet very nice condo, nice pool. Enjoyed this condo and really got a lot out of this vacation...Coming back!

Great location, well maintained and private

by Neil on 09/05/2018
The house is located about 25 minutes from the airport and is easy to find. The gated community is full of beautiful flowering shrubs and trees & lovely to drive into. The house is in a cul-de-sac and is also surrounded by shrubs and trees making it very private. It is very clean and tidy with comfortable beds and everything you could need. The kitchen is also well appointed with all the cooking spices and flavourings you might not want to buy yourself for a two week vacation. Once the hurricane had passed the pool heated up nicely and is a decent size. It is a fairly quiet location, although there are two houses nearby currently being refurbished and we did hear a pile-driver most days. There are also 3 dogs next door which were sometimes put into a run which runs along the property boundary & they did bark quite a lot when they were in there. Apart from that its a lovely place to stay - great location.

Clean , quiet and private

by Declan on 09/04/2018
The condo was immaculate and well equipped. The grounds well kept. We loved our two week stay. Thank you for an unforgettable vacation.


by Just married in Kona on 09/03/2018
Wonderful as usual, always aim to please. Well kept, clean, and just perfect.

Lovely apartment

by Alan on 09/03/2018
Lovely apartment. It was everything we could wish for.

Very Nice, Clean

by Arnold on 09/03/2018
Very nice, clean, airy condo, especially with the spacious lanai. Good location and great views. Ample dishes, glasses, tableware, pots, pans; good appliances, good mattresses. Sometimes occupants of the other properties nearby are a bit noisy, but never late at night. Road noise from Alii Drive is very minimal. We certainly will consider renting again. Kona Coast Vacations is very service oriented. Bedroom walls are not finished fully up to the ceiling. Great for airflow, but it does not provide privacy. It did not bother us much.

Enjoyed our Stay

by Pam on 09/03/2018
We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was very spacious and felt like a home away from home. The view was absolutely gorgeous. You can not find a view like that anywhere else. I spent most of my mornings, afternoons, and nights just relaxing on the lanai.


by Yanick on 09/02/2018
We loved our stay! Very clean, lot of space for us 4, perfect location. Mahalo!

Gorgeous Setting

by Karla on 08/31/2018
We arrived in Kona just after Hurricane Lane hit. We had been in Oahu during the storms and most of Oahu shut down so we were looking forward to getting out and about. This condo had all the features/amenities that we wanted. It was great having the full kitchen to cook breakfast and eat out on the lanai in the mornings. Super relaxing way to start our day. The only reason we're taking one star away is due to the toilet and the snorkeling gear provided. The toilet tank had a slow leak that would cause water to drain even though it had not been flushed, which then caused it to be refilling repeatedly day and night. This was annoying during the night when we were trying to sleep. We tried to take advantage of the snorkeling gear that was provided, however the masks did not work well at all, constantly fogging up and slow leaks causing them to fill with water. They are a newer style of mask/snorkel combo so you couldn't just blow the water out of the snorkel, you had to surface repeatedly to empty the mask. Overall the unit itself was fantastic with beautiful views.

Very pleasant, great location and view

by Catherine R on 08/30/2018
Excellent location, oceanside, a short walk to city center but very quiet building. Great to have our own covered parking spot so close to elevator. Wonderful views and sounds of the surf. Loved watching the spinner dolphins swimming north to south in early mornings. Our unit was very clean and had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The king size bed was very comfortable. With temps in the 90’s and high humidity, we appreciated the air conditioning. When we turned off the air, condensation quickly formed, making the floors slippery. Thank you!

Great place to visit Kona area

by Anonymous on 08/29/2018
The unit was clean, quiet, and has a great view. My son enjoyed swimming in the pool which was located very closed to the unit. The location was perfect to visit north and south of the island. Although we had a hurricane alert during our stay, the property manager was very helpful.

Highly Recommend

by Anh on 08/27/2018
Six of us stayed in his unit in August 2018. It was very comfortable , well-equipped. Beach towels are provided . The condo pool is beautiful and clean. Thank you for the welcome basket. That was a fun surprise. I would highly recommend this unit to my friends and family.

Beautiful home, perfect for family vacation

by William on 08/27/2018
This was the perfect location for our family vacation. The house is beautiful, clean and comfortable throughout. The kitchen is stocked with all the amenities to cook meals at home. Bathrooms have plenty of towels. Beach towels are provided along with some beach mats and umbrellas. We utilized the grill by cooking our catch of the day! We enjoyed the lanai, pool, spa, ocean view and the sunsets are AH-MAZING! 100% times better than a hotel especially with a group. Highly recommend. MIL unit could use portable A/C is only suggestion. We will definitely consider this home when we return to Kona.

Way better than expected!!!

by Will on 08/27/2018
I could not believe how great this property was for the price. Clean and spacious! The view was amazing. The grill was clean. Patio was huge. I will stay in this exact unit when I return to the big island.

Kona Isle C35

by Tudor on 08/26/2018
My wife and I traveled to Kona recently and had a wonderful time staying at the Kona Isle complex. Kona Coast vacations were very friendly over the phone, we found the directions from the airport, codes and the condition of the apartment to be very satisfactory. The apartment had all the amenities expected and more, which was a nice surprise. i would highly recommend Kona Coast to anyone traveling to Kona who wants to save some $$ and enjoy a high quality stay. Did I say it's super conveniently located on Ali'i Dr, close to shops, boutiques, restaurants, etc? Close to the Magic Sands beach also, Kona Isle is an awesome place to spend your time in Kona. Aloha!

Great location

by Cindy on 08/26/2018
This home has the most outstanding view. Located just above a shopping center for convenience. The home was clean, furniture is worn but the beds were comfortable. We did have an issue with the pool but the property management company sent someone out the same day. Great home for 3 couples as it has 3 master suites

great place and great terrace!

by Benoit on 08/25/2018
condo very spacious, very clean and well furnished. The large terrace has offered beautiful meals and evenings outside with a paradise view. groceries and services at two minutes! very convenient

A Very Comfortable Stay

by Michael on 08/25/2018
A little dated but very nice. Patio needed cleaning and bedroom window coverings let too much light through but otherwise comfortable.

What a great experience

by Matthew on 08/24/2018
KCV was easy to deal with from the beginning to end. Spectacular communication and customer service skills. They answered every question within a couple hours and were extremely quick to respond when we were stranded at the airport and then locked out of our unit. We chose Kona Isle b38 and were impressed. The unit was better than the pictures indicated. Beach view in a very quiet complex. The unit was stocked with just about everything, including beach chairs, coffre grinder, french press, and to many other items to name. It was close to town and easy to find. KCV even allowed us to check out late due to a later flight that was delayed even further for Hurricane Lane. I would happily stay in the unit again. And use KCV again, considering they had no surprise fees at check out. Thanks again!

loved it!

by Shanta on 08/24/2018
Loved our stay here! It was clean and well decorated. Wish it had air conditioning but otherwise perfect!

Highly Recommend

by Linda on 08/23/2018
A friend recommend this condo 136. There was 6 of using this condo. We all loved the property and condo location. We all highly recommend this condo. Very friendly people and the condo was very clean and equipped most anything you may need. I’m sure we will be back again. Thank you Casa de Emdeko. The best 60th birthday I could have ever had.

Great Condo!

by Greg Von on 08/23/2018
Condo looked just as pictured. The best view ever! Every aspect of renting this condo went well. Very happy and would recommend to others

Clean modern spacious awesome view

by Debbie on 08/23/2018
Very nice updated three bedroom condo with many amenities minutes to shopping nice pool clean beautiful ocean views

Best location on the island

by Heidi on 08/23/2018
Loved this condo and the sunny side of the island.

Waikoloa Villas D200

by Joan on 08/22/2018
Great condo! Neat and clean. Well equipped kitchen. Beach chairs, towels, toys etc available for use. Nice sunset views!

Great view

by Michel on 08/21/2018
The unit was big enough for 5 adults and was fully equipped except for the A/C. I think this is must because it was hot and humid in the condo. The fans didn't do the job. The site is perfect and close of everything. Great view on the golf course and the ocean.

Quite and relaxing

by Krystal on 08/21/2018
This townhouse was comfortable, clean, and relaxing. It had everything a family of 4 could possibly need. The pool was close by but I never heard anyone over there. The directions to get there are a little wonky but we found it easily. We let ourselves in with the code and never saw any neighbors, only golfers on the course. The rental agency checked in with me via email so they were available if we needed them.

Spectacular place!

by Sherri on 08/21/2018
The moment we opened the door to this villa, we collectively gasped at the beautiful sight of the blue ocean staring at us. I am thrilled that I brought my family to stay at this villa for our week long vacation on the island. Every morning we sat on the lanai drinking our coffee and listening to the waves crash into the rocks. Almost every evening we sat on the lanai drinking Pina coladas watching the beautiful sunset. In between, we were delighted to find that this villa provided every single toy that we could think of from beach chairs, to noodles, beach towels, snorkel gear, beach shoes, cooler and boogie boards. The main master bedroom has big windows that look out over the ocean. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was large. The secondary master bedroom was comfortable for my daughter. We also used the sofa bed for a few nights. The kitchen is large and well stocked with dishes, glassware, cookware, small appliances and an assortment of seasonings. The dining room and living room are large enough for everyone to spread out. The villa was quiet, has assigned garage parking and is close to everything in Kona. We used both pools and the grill. The unit includes grilling tools. David, the concierge, made it easy to choose activities. His suggestions proved to be first class. We did the snorkel trip, manta ray night snorkel trip, helicopter ride and luau that he recommended. I highly recommend that you stay at this villa. The listing description is accurate. The outdoor furniture has been updated from what you see in the pictures. The place was clean and well maintained. The team answered all my questions with great hospitality. When I told them the blender was broken, they brought a new one over right away.

Comfortable and spacious for extended family

by Heather on 08/21/2018
Our group of 8 stayed for a week. FYI for future guests, the floorplan is perfect for multiple families or generations: the master bedroom is on the south side of the house, the rest of the bedrooms are on the north side, with kitchen, living & dining in the middle. The A/C worked perfectly and kept the house cool in August, the kids loved the pool, and we spent hours on the lanai lounging under the ceiling fans. The beds and sofa were comfy, no complaints there! We had plenty of towels and made frequent use of the barbecue. Overall we had a wonderful stay at Kamilo Place.

Beach where you can snorkel!

by Hyungjin on 08/20/2018
Location was good. There was a beach where you could snorkel on foot. The children loved it too. Parking was convenient, too, and washing machine was convenient in house. I am satisfied with the price. I want to go again next time.

The location is unbeatable!

by Wismar on 08/20/2018
The view, a dream come true.Thanks again for having us. It was a great stay.

This place is a hidden gem!

by Zena on 08/20/2018
The ocean is at your doorstop. All of the extras for the beach and in the kitchen were a wonderful surprise!

This home is absolutely stunning!

by Danny on 08/20/2018
The location and view truly set it apart as for us, there was nothing better than brewing up some fantastic local coffee and sitting in the lanai as you hear and feel the waves breaking against the lava rock while getting to be in paradise. The home and furnishings are gorgeous and we easily found everything we needed to prepare our own meals. The location is perfect for a stay in Kona as there are numerous shopping and dining options nearby. This was the most luxurious vacation we have taken and we cannot wait to do it again.

Spacious, well stocked!

by Kathleen on 08/20/2018
We loved our stay with Kona Coast Vacations. The house was spacious, well stocked and and very clean and the concierge services were wonderful!

Beautiful and perfect for our family!

by Caralyn on 08/20/2018
Loved this condo- it was beautiful and perfect for our family. Great sized kitchen, living room, and bedrooms!

Great Location with Amazing View

by Alyssa on 08/20/2018
I had a great stay at this condo. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals and is also located near a shopping center that has a few restaurants if you don't feel like cooking. Everything was very clean and I can't say enough about the wonderful view from the lanai. I love to snorkel and the condo is located very close to some great snorkel beaches. I would definitely recommend this condo if you're looking to be close to downtown Kona but don't want to be so close to the main drag.

The house was even more beautiful in person than online!

by Lori on 08/19/2018
We had a fabulous family vacation! The house was even more beautiful in person than online! When we were not at the beach snorkeling and swimming, we were having fun in the home's pool. This house is a very spacious home that offers together space or one can get away from it all. There are little nooks every where!Our family would definitely rent this home again. It is not right on the ocean, but the views of it are amazing! Thank you to the owners for offering this home as a vacation rental! Mahalo...until the next time....Aloha!

Perfectly located condo with a sweet ocean view

by Mirjam on 08/19/2018
Very spacious, fresh and clean condo with all amenities you need, just a 5 minutes drive from the main strip in Kona. Lovely ocean view from both the balcony as the fully equiped kitchen. The grounds are very well kept, Always place to park, and a nice coffee place at the entrance of the premises. Only remark is that the bedroom is fairly hot, even with the available fans on. Over all a place I would go back to anytime.

beautiful, clean and updated

by Tammera on 08/18/2018
Property pictures accurately reflect the decor and cleanliness of property. Well kept and safe. easy access to the King's shops, restaurants, and Island Gourmet Market to stock up on organic food.

Very nice condo

by Lynne on 08/18/2018
The condo was new and updated. It is fully stocked with beach towels and beach chairs. It was a perfect large size with an air conditioner. It has a nice location on a golf course and is a lower floor unit. We got a parking space with it. The condo units have a smaller infinity pool but we ended up walking to the beach. It is right by the Marriott and Hilton hotels. There are also two smaller grocery stores within walking distance that was very convenient. Just note that you have to keep all the doors and windows closed to keep the air conditioning on.

Absolutely Wonderful

by Elizabeth on 08/18/2018
Wow, the view from this house is amazing!! There's no need to go anywhere else. My whole family loved hanging out swimming in the gorgeous pool, listening to waves crashing in the adjacent cove and watching the absolutely amazing sunsets!! The house is so spacious, nicely decorated, very clean and well maintained, and offers so much privacy with all bedrooms having their own bathrooms (my teenager loved it!). The snorkeling in the cove was amazing. Recommend dinner at Ray's on the Bay (Sheraton) and at restaurant the Kona Country Club, both had great food and great views. Highly recommend snorkeling with the dolphins and manta rays through Ocean Encounters. We did not want to leave!

Perfect location. Close, but not too close to town

by Brian on 08/18/2018
The sunset views were fantastic, the location was great and the parking was abundant. There were pool and beach toys and coolers for use on excursions. Our only regret was that we couldn’t stay longer!

Great location and view. Very nice stay

by George on 08/16/2018
Thanks for a great stay. The office support was great.

Loved the place, so clean and organized, I cannot thank you enough for such a great stay!

This is an amazing apt, so perfect, clean, organized, simply lovely, we were amazed that everything was thought out, we were sad to leave, we loved out stay!

This is a great place in a great location!

by Della on 08/16/2018
We have been to kona many times and this place was ultra comfortable with one of my favorite swimming beaches right across the street! Thank you for everything !! We had so much fun!


by Jamie on 08/16/2018
We had the best time here! The wifi was pretty bad in the house but other than that a great place!

Great accommodations.

by Patrick on 08/16/2018
Would definitely stay here again.


by Abe on 08/16/2018
What a perfect house in a perfect location. Kona Coast Vacations was great to work with - they even left a local selection of snacks on check in. I definitely hope to stay with them again!

This is a real gem!

by Frithjof on 08/16/2018
Great apartment (the kitchen was better than at home) and you are right at the sea. We (a couple and a 10 year old child)even could watch dolfins while having breakfast. The concierge David is very helpful.


by Sonia on 08/14/2018
A very sophisticated space Two swimming pools People around thanks to the sun every morning and every evening Very safe Everything clean

Great location, walking distance to all shops on Ali'i dr. Very clean condo.

Thank you for a great stay.

Good parking and good location.

Amazing view, beautiful condo

by Jennifer on 08/14/2018
This condo had an amazing view of the ocean and it was nice to have the pool view right below us for when the big kids wanted to be in the pool. I didn’t think the unit having no AC would be an issue since my house in Hawaii didn’t when I lived there but I have to give a fair warning that the unit was very warm inside during the day. There were plenty of fans in there but the air flow still wasn’t great just because there couldn’t be windows on 2 sides of the unit. If you are like us and are out most of the day it’s not a huge issue. If you stay in this beautiful condo I would recommend using the grills outside by the pool for meals instead of the oven and also taking cool showers in the master bath so you don’t heat the place up anymore before you go to bed! They had everything we needed to cook meals and also everything we needed for our 3 month old baby to be comfortable so it’s a great place to stay for families if the heat doesn’t bother you too much.

Stay-cation 2018

by David on 08/14/2018
This was an amazing location for our family to visit with other family members who live in Kona. We were able to share so much quality time with each other. The unit had everything we needed making it the perfect for our family retreat. Mahalo

Nice place, good location in Kona

by Patrick on 08/13/2018
Very nice condo, ideally located in Kona with direct access to the sea.The condo was very well equipped, you receive all the necessary information before your departure, the place is quiet and welcoming, the concierge available, satisfied not our stay!

Beautiful property with beautiful views!

by Lisa on 08/13/2018
We had a wonderful experience. We never saw nor needed management personnel. Excellent location, easy access, well maintained and well provisioned.


by John on 08/13/2018
This property was absolutely beautiful! Perfect for families traveling together. Each bedroom having its own bathroom was perfect. It felt like we each had our own hotel room with the kitchen and living room as a lovely gathering place with an amazing view! We were sad the pool was closed but walked over to see what it would have been and it looks like a great spot to lounge. The fitness center had some great equipment although it was pretty tight if you didn’t want to use machines. The shopping center next door has some great restaurants and the beach club restaurant was probably one of the best we ate at on the island.

Beautiful grounds

by Harold on 08/13/2018
Property grounds were beautiful. It was quiet and everyone was friendly. Unit was comfortable and well equipped. Only problem was air conditioning did not work well. We chose this property specifically because it had central air. Took several days for someone to come look at it and they were unable to repair it while we were there. It worked well enough to keep the humidity down and there were fans which helped a lot. In all fairness, we were offered a different unit but by then it didn’t seem worth it to pack up everything and move since we weren’t going to be there many more days. Since the air didn’t work well we were unable to use the washer and dryer. Tried it once but it made the unit too hot. All in all, if the air conditioner is repaired, I would recommend this unit
Aloha!  Mahalo for having been our guest and for taking the time to share with us your recent stay.  Please accept our apologies for the issues you encountered with our guest room.  The air-conditioning has since been replaced so there is a brand new unit!   It has been a pleasure to have you as our guest & we hope to see you again the next time your travels take you back to the Big Island.
Mahalo. Kona Coast Vacations

Everything you need for a long stay!

by Adam on 08/13/2018
This place has all the amenities you could need— even things we didn’t think we’d need! The drawbacks are that it is on the third floor and has no AC. But it’s a fantastic value with a wonderful view and plenty of space. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful Condo!

by Sherry on 08/13/2018
We spent 14 nights here and it was almost perfect and I would actually give it 4.75 stars if I could! The view is spectacular and we saw many dolphins from the delightful balcony. Since it was August and a bit warmer, we did miss the air conditioner. The upside is we experienced more of the island life than on previous trips and the pool and spa are very nice! Everything in and around the condo felt pristinely clean and very well kept. The amenities in the condo were wonderful - even a coffee grinder since we love to have our coffee fresh! Kona Vacation was so quick to help when one fan was not working. I would highly recommend staying here.

Really a first class operation.

by Roger on 08/12/2018
It was great. The condo was very clean and up to date. Exceptionally well stocked in the kitchen with everything you would want except for a large oven dish. The added benefit of having beach towels and surf toys was appreciated.

It was an amazing experience.

by Lucilia on 08/12/2018
The apartment was perfect, clean, great view to the Ocean and swiming pool.We had a wonderful time in Kona thanks to the great location and ! See you next time in Big Island!!! Aloha and mahalo! Lucilia e Roberta from Brazil!!! 🙂

Thanks for the great communication, local information and great space!

by Yoji on 08/12/2018
A very nice space with great location. The balcony was really nice to use especially in the mornings. There is no air conditioning but plenty of fans are provided. Communication is excellent.

This is a great place and we would definitely stay again

by Michelle on 08/12/2018
This is a wonderful condo with a fantastic view! We were grateful for the air conditioning, but wished it made it to the bedroom. We did buy a fan, which we left in the closet, and that helped bring some air to the bedroom. There is wifi, but it is extremely slow. We used our own data.This is a great place and we would definitely stay again.You guys have great service!


by Shaun on 08/12/2018
Great location, and very clean with nice amenities. Ideal for singles or families.


by Francisco on 08/12/2018
The apartment is as described in the advertisement. The common areas (pool ...) very well. Good communication

Loved everything about this place!

by Vincent on 08/12/2018
Updated, nicely appointed condo with balcony overlooking the ocean. Close to town. Air conditioning was a wonderful amenity in late July. Loved everything about this place!Great place, just as advertised! Loved the air conditioning!


by Anthony on 08/12/2018
Excellent location if you wanna snorkel the beach park. I liked to get up and go first thing in the AM.

We have lived in Kona before and would continue to stay at this Home anytime we visit.

by Garth on 08/12/2018
Great Home, located centrally to everything in Kona. The kids and I went to “Dawn Patrol” at Magic's several mornings. We enjoyed coffee on the Lanai and swimming to cool off in the afternoons. Home was furnished with just about everything. We have lived in Kona before and would continue to stay at this Home anytime we visit. Mahalo and thanks for everything!

We loved the condo!

by Chris on 08/12/2018
Beautiful views of the ocean from both balconies. Condo was fantastic and the swimming pool and on-site restaurant exceeded expectations. We ended up eating dinner there twice and several days just hanging out at the pool. Unbelievable sunset views.

This house has a wonderful sea view.

by Corinne on 08/12/2018
The main terrace is large and nice. The kitchen is well equipped and very spacious. The rooms are on the first floor and the 2 main ones have access to a balcony. Behind the house, the sea is near. You can easily walk to nearby restaurants and shops.

We loved it!

by Paul on 08/12/2018
Great location right on the shore. Easy walk to Huggo's, On The Rocks, and Habaneros. Great parking and quiet neighbors. Would love to go again!


by Jerome on 08/12/2018
Very good accommodation, well placed and well equipped with bodyboard to enjoy the waves. I recommend it to you

We couldn't have had a more pleasant and relaxing stay! I would recommend this location to all

by Stacey on 08/12/2018
The condo was clean and comfortable. It was easy to access and instructions provided ahead of time were clear and simple. Thank you Kona Coast for the wonderful stay!

Book this place you will love it!!!

by Susan on 08/12/2018
Everything was wonderful. The best place for our family reunion. David our concierge was wonderful!

Highly recommend....perfect house!

by Destiny on 08/12/2018
House was absolutely perfect! Visited during the week of July 24th-31st 2018. I was worried about Vog issues due to the current eruption. Most of the time the views were amazing. There were times when the vog would roll in. Luckily we had more clear skies than not. My son has Asthma which is very controlled, but was still concerned prior to arriving. He didn't need his Inhaler once during the trip. The AC was amazing to have because some nights were extremely humid and I'm sure having the AC helped not aggravate his asthma. The only downside was the hot water didn't last very long which I guess isn't so bad as I wasn't wasting time just standing in the shower lol! This is a gated community and the neighborhood is beautiful and I felt very safe. Lots of privacy even in the open backyard. Pool and views were the highlights of the house. Love the high ceilings! It had everything we needed plus some for cooking. We didn't see any bugs what so ever inside of the house. Only one cute little lime green lizard which probably followed us inside at one point. Beds were very comfortable, even the couches in the living room were comfortable! Netflix worked great when we were just relaxing in the evenings. There we some beach chairs and an umbrella. Two boogie boards however one was not in good shape so only one was usable. Lots of stores close by like Walmart and Safeway. I would highly recommend this house.


by Alessandra on 08/12/2018
Fantastic place. Silence and peace. I'll be back

Beautiful location and I appreciate the concierge services even though we didn't use them.

by Kirié on 08/12/2018
This is such a beautiful location with all the amenities you need for your stay in Kona! It's got a perfect view of the clear water-- you can see fish from your balcony! The only thing I didn't consider before renting is that there is no air conditioning (that is the norm in Hawaii). There are ceiling fans in each room and additional plug-in fans for extra comfort.

Really nice place to stay....I would return!

by Pam on 08/12/2018
Nice, well stocked home. Also, very pleasant to sit out on the deck for our meals and to visit. I would return.

Amazing home, location, service, everything? Better than expected!!

by Steve on 08/12/2018
This home is truly unique and amazing! The pics don't tell the whole story. From the little black sand beach with great snorkeling within walking distance to the fancy closing drawers and sensory touch kitchen faucets. Will look up Kona Resorts properties again next time for sure!

Fantastic Home - we had such a great time and it was so great not to be cooped up in a hotel.

by Ashley on 08/12/2018
This house was absolutely everything we wanted for our stay in Kona. A view, space, private pool, and a fully stocked kitchen. This house has everything you think you need and more! I felt very taken care of and in turn I could take care of my guests. The house itself is on a mountain so having a car is key or relying on uber or taxis - be prepared to spend a lot on those. The pool itself was clean and had plenty of seating around it. We bbq'd and had a wonderful time. Thank you so much!


by Maryline on 08/12/2018
Beautiful terrace with direct access to the sea. Apartment very well equipped and comfortable. Close to places of interest around Kona.


by Rohini on 08/12/2018
The location was awesome! The view was phenomenal. We saw dolphins almost every morning.

I would definitely recommend to a friend.

by Macey on 08/12/2018
So cozy. Great mattresses. Hosts were very nice and accommodating.By far the easiest part of our trip. Mahalo.

Excellent location, very responsive staff and outstanding views!

by Mary Ann on 08/12/2018
Excellent experience overall. Staff and concierge were very helpful and responsive.

Great service, location...well equipped!

by Eric on 08/12/2018
Great location for the condo. The views of the ocean is nice from the balcony. We had nice breakfast there. The condo comes well equip. We had great and warm weather when we were in Kona which kept the condo very warm. AC would have been usefull to chill out the place at night but it was expected. Our stay was great.

All in all a great place to stay that I can recommend.

by Mobeen on 08/12/2018
Very good location, the city of Kona is only 4 minutes away and offers many opportunities to go out to eat or drink. The area is very nice and well maintained, but this also means occasional loud noise in the morning as mowing lawn.Another tip is to read the agreement well, post should not be sent to the apartment but only to the office of Cona Coast. In my case Cona Coast was very accommodating and tried to help me in every way. All in all a great place to stay that I can recommend.

This was our first Airbnb experience and it was amazing!

Thank you so much!! This was our first Airbnb experience and it was amazing! The place was perfect and had an amazing view! We saw dolphins almost every morning we were there and the binoculars are a great touch! Beach supplies were great and the washer/dryer really came in handy too! We will definitely book again! Thank you for everything!!

Thank you for making our trip easy and comfortable.

by Katherine on 08/12/2018
Beautiful home tucked on the hillside facing the water. Sensational views, comfortable beds and couches, and all the appliances needed for a week.

Very clean, comfortable beds, and wonderful communication

by Victoria on 08/12/2018
We had two couples stay in the condo and it was perfect! Everything was very clean, comfortable beds, and wonderful communication with the host! They even booked a luau and snorkel trips for us. I would highly recommend staying here!

You guys are the best!

by Sandy on 08/12/2018
We loved our stay at this property. The location is superb and the golf course and ocean view is worth a million dollars. Our favorite thing to do in the morning was to sit at the patio with a cup of coffee and enjoyed watching people play golf and stare at the ocean view. We'd go out again at dusk and enjoyed the sunset. The condo has lots of amenities in the closet for beach goers (snorkeling masks, beach mats, beach chairs, foam board, towels) so you don't have to rent or purchase them when you are on the island. The only reasons we didn't give this property a 5 star rating were that the blinds are hard to maneuver and the fans were hard to operate (we were there when the temperature was in the 90's, couldn't get them to turn faster than a medium crawl), wish there was operation manuals for those remote controlled fans.

A great place to stay!

by Ruoming on 08/12/2018
Alii Villa is conveniently located: 10 minute drive to Kona downtown, or 10 minute the other way to Kahaluu park for fun snorkeling.


by Nicole on 08/12/2018
Kona Coast was very accommodating and extremely organized and professional. I would recommend them for your stay in Kona.


by Rob on 08/12/2018
One of the better Waikoloa Village properties that I've stayed in. Spacious and spotless. Appreciated the extra touches: snorkels, body board, coolbox. Very good value.

I will stay there again.

by Yi on 08/12/2018
It was a very pleasant stay for us. I was amazed how the unit was well equiped. No matter what we needed during the stay, we will find them in the unit. I can stay there for a long time. Also, i like the neighborhood, because its quite and has a pool and BBQ area. I think it's a bargain considering its location and hotel pool access.

Great location.

by David on 08/12/2018
Nice secure place. Great location. Appreciated amenities like beach towels. Recommend to anyone visiting Kona.


by Anita on 08/12/2018
Perfect place to stay with a family of six

First time on this island and it was perfect.

by Gemma on 08/12/2018
Fantastic apartment in the middle of a lovely complex. Very modern look with super comfortable beds and beautiful solid furniture. Well equipped kitchen, for our 6 person stay we lacked nothing. Theres 2 double bedrooms that have great beds and linens, one with a fantastic ensuite bathroom, the other with a bathroom right next to it. The mezzanine level was a big bonus as it allowed our 3 tweens/teens to have their own private area - they were very happy with that and it could sleep 4. There's a pool steps away and a lovely private beach a 2 minute drive. Plenty of great stores also 2 minute drive away including a supermarket with everything you'd need - especially great fresh fish, meat and deli sections. At the shopping area there's a range of restaurants and cafes - we especially liked the Blue Room for seafood and steak and Napua beach restaurant has really excellent food with stunning views. An upscale base for exploring the island - and the beach was perfect for safe snorkeling, has free sun loungers and double lux loungers with shade canopies. Get there before 10am to secure the lux ones. There's a ‘secret pool' with freshwater and mosquito fish that nibble your toes, you can swim in this beautiful cool water, but go before applying sunscreen so you don't upset the fish habitat - it's a one of a kind experience. Make sure to explore the Manoku Fishpond area to see a different eco system and wildlife - it's right next to the beach and makes for stunning pictures. Highly highly recommend the swimming with dolphin boat cruise and the Manta Ray night swim - book through David the concierge.

It was great

by Roger on 08/12/2018
It was great. The condo was very clean and up to date. Exceptionally well stocked in the kitchen with everything you would want except for a large oven dish. The added benefit of having beach towels and surf toys was appreciated. Really a first class operation.

Bel endroit, bien situé à Kona

by Patrick on 08/11/2018
Très agréable condo, situé idéalement à Kona avec accès direct à la mer. Le condo était très bien équipé, vous recevez toutes les infos nécessaire avant votre départ, l'endroit est calme et accueillant, le concierge disponible, satisfait ne notre séjour!

Well-equipped, easy to like

by Marilyn on 08/11/2018
This townhome in the Waikoloa area was much better than we had expected. The owners thoughtfully left everything we needed, including (as examples) soy sauce, dryer sheets, and books to read. Thank you! It is also very easy to get from this townhome to running trails and to all the Waikoloa area.

Great property, amazing management!

by Ernst on 08/10/2018
We enjoyed our stay at Awamoa place. Very nice house! I especially appreciate the offer to move us due to wildfires near the village. It didn’t come to that but the call from the propert management company that night gave us piece of mind.

Unforgettable family vacation

by Stephanie on 08/10/2018
This house was amazing. Super clean and had every amenity we needed. My husband and I and our two young kids stayed here for 5 nights and had such a blast. I highly recommend this condo for your Big Island vacation!

Very pleased!

by Nicole on 08/09/2018
We had an excellent stay. The condo was perfect and just like being at home. It was fully equipped with everything you would need for your stay.

Perfect vacation place for my family of 3!

by Amber on 08/08/2018
Townhouse was very clean and well-maintained. Great location. Not hard to find. Grounds are beautiful, pool is very kid friendly. Short drive to downtown Kona for shopping and amazing food. I was pleasantly surprised how well stocked the townhouse was. Tons of shower and beach towels. Plenty of toilet paper that lasted us all week. Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals, even cooking oil and spices. Stairs to the 2nd floor are a little steep, but doable. The downstairs water heater closet has beach toys such as boogie boards and beach chairs. There is an ice chest on the back porch. I found a drawer full of water shoes on the last day we were there, located under the bench next to the front door. You might want to add details in the listing about the beach toys and water shoes. Would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful memories!

by Clara on 08/08/2018
I stayed here with my family as a treat to myself to start off my retirement. The house had everything we needed and was professionally managed, we were taken care of the whole time. The house being single story made it very easy for children, they couldn’t get enough of the pool. I wish we had more time to spend here.

Sea Village 4303

by Sarah on 08/07/2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea Village 4303. Not having AC was a bit of an adjustment for us, but it really helped to have so many fans and the AC in the bedroom was awesome! The only thing we could suggest would be to update some of the non-stick pans because their coating is flaking off.
Aloha!  We very much appreciate you taking the time to provide us with this feedback. We will be updating the pans based on your feedback. On your next visit, please know 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.  Mahalo.

Incredible views, ultimate relaxation

by Happy Traveler on 08/07/2018
Our family enjoyed every moment at the property. The infinity pool and hot tub were such a draw with breathtaking views, we didn't want to leave. Kitchen stocked with everything you could possibly need, abundant towels, comfortable beds. Even a tropical outdoor shower. We have rented many homes and this was our favorite!

So Wonderful!

by Jill on 08/07/2018
Helemano was everything we hoped for and more. The scenic beauty, the beautifully appointed house and home....just everything about this place was so wonderful. We wanted to create a wonderful family time and this place delivered. Mahalo for all the special memories we created. God Bless You.

Great family condo on the Big Island!

by Colby on 08/06/2018
What a wonderful place to stay for our family of four. This condo offered all of the amenities of home, and was so very spacious to boot! With one teenager and one almost-teenager (plus Mom & Dad), everyone was happy with their own space and their own bed. Three bathrooms was a huge bonus! The kitchen was well-stocked with more than you usually would find in a rental. And, there were all kinds of great beach necessities available for our use as well. We loved the ceiling fans at night, and the master bedroom bathroom was HUGE! Lots of extra linens, lots of places for our family to sit and enjoy a movie (cable + DVD player), and this condo is in a very quiet part of the community. We highly recommend the Turtle House!

Worth every penney

by Terry on 08/06/2018
Magnificent property. Better than anticipated. Very accurate pictures and descriptions. Perfect for large familys or for parties. 4 large bedrooms with their own private baths, and an extremely large gathering room for "together" time. We reserved over 10 months in advance just to get in, and it was more than worth it.

The location and the terrace on the sea are fabulous.

by Maryline on 08/05/2018
Beautiful terrace with direct access to the sea. Apartment very well equipped and comfortable. Close to places of interest around Kona.

This house was absolutely everything we wanted for our stay in Kona

by Ashley on 08/05/2018
A view, space, private pool, and a fully stocked kitchen. This house has everything you think you need and more! I felt very taken care of and in turn I could take care of my guests. The house itself is on a mountain so having a car is key or relying on uber or taxis - be prepared to spend a lot on those. The pool itself was clean and had plenty of seating around it. We bbq'd and had a wonderful time. Thank you so much!

Better than expected!!

by Steve on 08/05/2018
This home is truly unique and amazing! The pics don't tell the whole story. From the little black sand beach with great snorkeling within walking distance to the fancy closing drawers and sensory touch kitchen faucets.

Nice place to stay!

by Pam on 08/05/2018
Nice, well stocked home. Also, very pleasant to sit out on the deck for our meals and to visit. I would return.

This is such a beautiful location with all the amenities you need for your stay in Kona!

by Kirié on 08/05/2018
It's got a perfect view of the clear water-- you can see fish from your balcony! The only thing I didn't consider before renting is that there is no air conditioning (that is the norm in Hawaii). There are ceiling fans in each room and additional plug-in fans for extra comfort.

Book this place you will love it!!!

by Susan on 08/05/2018
Everything was wonderful. The best place for our family reunion. David our concierge was wonderful.


by Jerome on 08/05/2018
We like our vacations un your condo, well equiped, perfect for us

Would love to go again!

by Paul on 08/05/2018
Great location right on the shore. Easy walk to Huggo's, On The Rocks, and Habaneros. Great parking and quiet neighbors.

Unbelievable sunset views.

by Chris on 08/05/2018
Beautiful views of the ocean from both balconies. Condo was fantastic and the swimming pool and on-site restaurant exceeded expectations. We ended up eating dinner there twice and several days just hanging out at the pool.

Great Home, located centrally to everything in Kona

by Garth on 08/05/2018
The kids and I went to “Dawn Patrol” at Magic's several mornings. We enjoyed coffee on the Lanai and swimming to cool off in the afternoons. Home was furnished with just about everything. We have lived in Kona before and would continue to stay at this Home anytime we visit. Mahalo and thanks for everything!

Excellent location if you wanna snorkel the beach park.

by Anthony on 08/05/2018
I liked to get up and go first thing in the AM.

Great place, just as advertised! Loved the air conditioning!

by Vincent on 08/05/2018
Updated, nicely appointed condo with balcony overlooking the ocean. Close to town. Air conditioning was a wonderful amenity in late July. Loved everything about this place!

Good Communication

by Francisco on 08/05/2018
The apartment is as described in the advertisement. The common areas (pool ...) very well.

Great location, and very clean with nice amenities.

by Shaun on 08/05/2018
Ideal for singles or families.

You guys have great service!

by Michelle on 08/05/2018
This is a wonderful condo with a fantastic view! We were grateful for the air conditioning, but wished it made it to the bedroom. We did buy a fan, which we left in the closet, and that helped bring some air to the bedroom. There is wifi, but it is extremely slow. We used our own data. This is a great place and we would definitely stay again.

High quality condo in Waikoloa Village.

by James on 08/05/2018
This is a high-quality, large two-bedroom condo in Waikoloa Village with wonderful golf-course and ocean views from the lanai. We enjoyed using the lanai table and chairs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The ocean is about 4 miles away (line of sight) and about a 15 to 20-minute drive to the best beaches on the island. One of the nice features is that while you enter the condo at ground level, because of the slope of the land, the lanai (on the other side of the condo from the front door) is at a second-floor elevation. There are condos below and above this unit but didn’t notice any noise. This well-maintained condo has all the amenities advertised. Best of all everything works! The furnishings are all high quality and the king-size bed in the master bedroom is comfortable (we didn’t use the 2 twin beds in the second bedroom). The master bathroom has a separate tub and shower stall and the bathroom for the second bedroom has a shower stall (no tub). The condo is managed by Kona Coast Vacations and they did a fine job handling the reservations, payments, and access instructions. But because there were no problems, we didn’t need to contact them for customer service during our stay. We’ve stayed at several vacation rentals over the last 10 years in Waikoloa Village and this one is the best.

What a wonderful home!

by Sandra on 08/05/2018
The grounds and pool were gorgeous and the home was so well appointed, even better than the online pictures. When we come back to Kona, this will be our place to stay. David and the rest of the Kona Coast Vacation staff were so friendly and accommodating. Recommendations were spot on, from restaurants to day trips, zip lining, snorkeling, etc.

Perfect family apartment

by Pete on 08/05/2018
This was a beautiful, clean and spacious apartment perfect for a family of 4. We stayed for 10 days and couldn't fault the place. Waikoloa is so much nicer for a family vacation than Kona and always seems to be sunny, even when the rest of the island is raining or covered in Vog. Perfect location for accessing the whole island as the road to Hilo starts at Waikoloa and you don't have that 5km traffic jam into Kona after an afternoon of sightseeing. The pool is awesome, spa is lovely and if you're into such things theres a great little gym too. It's a couple of minutes walk to shops and restaurants, even walkable to the Lava Lava Beach Club for sunset drinks and dinner. So much more space and CHEAPER than the Marriott across the road. its a no brainer. We'll be back.

Great Vacation

by Lien on 08/04/2018
We had such a great vacation. David did a great job of arranging everything. The condo was spotless and we had everything we needed. We loved the pool , the neighborhoods and beaches. Would definitely recommend the place to our friends. Thank you. The Reitmaier family.

Fantastic Home! So beautiful yet comfortable

by Tj on 08/03/2018
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.

Great location right on the shore

by Paul on 08/03/2018
Great location right on the shore. Easy walk to Huggo's, On The Rocks, and Habaneros. Great parking and quiet neighbors. Would love to go again!

Comfortable and convenient

by Abhijeet on 08/03/2018
Well stocked and organized home. Conveniently located and comfortable, with good views from the Lanai.

Unit 109 is the perfect family destination in Kona

by Mary on 08/03/2018
This unit completely exceeded our expectations. The location of this unit is the best at the property. Having the beautiful grass yard in front was dreamy with kids. The place had all the amenities we could have asked for and was stocked nicely in the kitchen. It was clean, nicely maintained, spacious and really beautiful. David at the Concierge service was a huge help as well. We couldn't have asked for more.

Great location, unbeatable view, spacious and all the amenities! C

by Mary on 08/02/2018
Just wanted to say that I have been to Kona close to 50 times and stayed at countless places. Royal Sea Cliff unit 109 has been one of the best. Great location, unbeatable view, spacious and all the amenities! Couldn't have asked for more. The concierge service is also a gem. Your place made our trip very special.

Breathtaking views! Immaculate! Fully Stocked!

by David And Muriel on 08/02/2018
This condo has many 5 star reviews...and deserves each one. We have never stayed in a condo that was so well stocked. From dishes, pots/pans, glasses, all the way to beach towels, chairs and fins. We were delighted. The housekeeping and linens were impeccable and the view from the lanai (golf course and then ocean) are breathtaking and peaceful. The salt water pool was also a treat. The building was quite and restful. We will return.


by Lucy on 08/01/2018
This place is AWESOME! My family and I love this place! It's a very neat and clean condo and all the appliances works, no problem at all. We enjoyed it very much. We just came home and we're already planning on going back again...

Excellent Condo, Stunning Views

by Dirk on 08/01/2018
The condo itself was really nice and well equipped. The views are stunning because you are just a few feet away from the ocean. The property was clean and well maintained, the equipment (kitchen, etc) was good, so we could enjoy our time there from the beginning. Next to the condo is a nice little beach (1 minute walking distance), it also takes only a couple of minutes to get to shopping/dining area of Kona. The community areas of the resort were also well maintained. I can strongly recommend this condo, it will be difficult to find anything better in Kona.

Kueni Place was amazing!

by Nathalie on 07/30/2018
The villa was wonderful with a spectacular view. The villa is extremely well equipped and everything is well indicated, thank you for the wonderful stay and thank you David for your good advices!

A hidden treasure right on the beach

by Richard on 07/30/2018
I found Magic Sands with the help of Google Maps satellite view, the great travel book Hawaii – The Big Island Revealed, and of course, TripAdvisor. Hotel prices in the area are phenomenally high and I was surprised to find that condo rentals were such a great value in comparison, even beyond the fact that they have a complete kitchen (and my wife is an outstanding cook). Like most of the prime spots on Ali’I Drive, it’s been here for a while and I think this is one of the best locations on the whole strip. It is off by itself, at the north end of a great public beach (more later) and just south of a small, palm-tree shaded park. I chose one of the larger units at the south end of the complex, with an extended lanai on our floor these were 202-205. This unit’s management, Kona Coast Vacations, provided great service from booking to follow-up. They sent all the essential information, clearly documented, and had a concierge service to answer questions. In the unit were small signs with useful information, helping me feel informed without being regimented. The units in the complex are individually owned, but there is an onsite manager to help with all. The back of the condo faces the street, so you hear very little traffic noise. The front is not much more than a dozen yards from the ocean front seawall. While we were here, at least, the sound not waves lapping over the sands but rather pounding surf. Though not much is promised in the way of accessories, our unit included a couple of great beach chairs, beach pads ,a boogie board, some pro-quality swim fins and swimming goggles, as well as miscellaneous other beach toys. There’s a pool outside, but we favored the beach next door. The furniture is all comfortable and the fairly recent remodel is practical more than lavish (and who needs “lavish” when you’re in paradise?). The kitchen is efficient and well equipped and there were a fair number of non-perishable basics waiting for us (and we will leave a bunch more). There are large ceiling fans by the bed, in the living area and on the lanai. At the far end of the complex is a secure and well-equipped laundromat. If you forgot to bring quarters, you can get change at the complex office. There were some detergent pods there and we left a box of the more conventional stuff my wife preferred. A minor maintenance issue was handled quickly with no inconvenience, even though I made the initial report on a Sunday evening. Wi-Fi is local to the room and secure. I clocked the download speed at over 60mbps, which many people will find faster than their home connection. There was a guide to the generous number of channels offered by Spectrum, the local cable company. We’re not really TV-watching people, but there were a lot of good local stations as well. The condo was pretty well stocked with basic living supplies and non-perishable sauces and seasonings (and we added to that pretty generously as well). You’re directly next door to Magic Sands beach which, it turns out, is a local favorite for boogie-boarding. And for that, it’s pretty darn near perfect. The slope of the shore is very gentle so you can go pretty far out and still touch bottom. But that’s pretty relative. When we were there, six-foot waves weren’t that uncommon. In the parking lot across the street from the beach, there’s even a bike-rental station. Notes on Kona: Parking can be a challenge along the beach area. Look for public parking lots, they’re free but often confusingly adjacent to private lots at $8.85/hour prepaid. The best and highest priced eateries are along the beach, with some better prices if you go east a block or two. For food shopping, there are KTA Superstores just north in downtown Kona and one that’s to the south in the Keauhou Shopping Center, a little further away, but much bigger and most times of the day it’s a shorter trip. It’s also a great source for the local coffee and macadamia nut souvenirs you bring home to friends.

Stay above our expectations!

by Finn Christian on 07/30/2018
Absolutely terrific. We loved Mahuahua Place, the house was so convenient for our big party of eight adult people. Enough space both inside and outside. The facilities were beautiful, landscaping outside lush and well kept.Pool very nice for our morning exercise, and the lanai for breakfast and evening meals. We also enjoyed the little guestbook, and the booklet with information and special greeting from the owners, Kathy and Bob.That made a little personal touch, just enough to make us feel welcome. The gift basket was also very nice as a welcome. We had one week at this house, and one more at another house in Waikoloa village. Mahuahua pl was clearly the best! We used to live on the island many years ago, and this trip was a reunion, both with friends and many dear places on the island. That is why we didn't use your offer on activities with concierge David. We were lucky enough to go with the locals/ our friends. Our favorite beaches: Makalawena, Kua, Mauna Kea and Hapuna. Lava Lava club at A-bay was nice for both lunch and dinner on the beach. Some of us was up on Mauna Kea, stargazing was terrific. We went out boating and snorkeling with " bite me sportsfishing" /ocean encounters, which was great fun. We were able to see some dolphins, as a bonus. However, we hope that dolphin watching is kept on a low scale as tourist attraction, as those great animals shouldn' t be disturbed, but be kept in peace in their habitats. We went on a road trip to Hilo, seeing Akaka Falls on our way. We also saw the vulcano Kilauea at a distance from a good view point in Pāhoa after sunset. Our concerns about the vog before our travels, was not any worry...for us tourists the vog was just good as an extra sunscreen when there. But we do hope on behalf of you people living there, that it's not becoming a constant problem. We missed the nice, clear views over the sloping hillsides and over the ocean, we used to have when we lived there. Anyway we enjoyed our stay above our expectations, it was awful to leave paradise, and we hope to return before long. Best greetings from Bergen, Norway Lynn and Finn Christian

Loved Nani Kahakai

by Francine on 07/30/2018
My family loved staying at Nani Kahakai. We have rented from Kona Coast Vacations in the Kahakai Estates neighborhood before and always have good properties and good service. We especially liked the large lanai and the pool. The house and yard were very clean and well maintained. We hope to come again. Our favorite things while on Island were: Snorkeling at Honaunau, Mauna Kea, Kua Bay and Waialea Bay. Eating out at Sam Choy's (Keahou), Fish Hopper and Lava Java (Kona). Driving to Punalu'u Black Sand Beach and stopping at the Punalu'u Bakery in Na'alehu for fresh malasadas (Portuguese donuts) on the way - Yum!

Great communication, local information and great space

by Yoji on 07/29/2018
A very nice space with great location. The balcony was really nice to use especially in the mornings. There is no air conditioning but plenty of fans are provided. Communication is excellent.


by Steve on 07/29/2018
wonderful place, comfy beds, great location

Loved the living space! Beautiful.

by Libby on 07/29/2018
Our villa was beautiful! The four of us each had our own bed and loved the living space, kitchen and lanai. The loft was so cute, just wish it wasn't so hot up there. The whole place was more equipped than with expected. The kitchen had almost any appliance we could think of. Our concierge was super helpful and responded quickly and effectively.

Fully epuipped, cozy, quiet location.

by Regina on 07/29/2018
A very cozy apartment, fully equipped and with a beautiful balcony and a very well-kept garden with pool area directly on the sea (but no direct access to the beach)! Quiet location, we enjoyed it very much!

Right on the sea-shore!

by Michel on 07/29/2018
Good location right on the seashore with a very nice pool and a well appointed BBQ area. The view from the balcony to the sea is nice. The communication with Kona Coast is excellent and even offers a concierge service to help us plan our activities.

Loved out stay!

by Katherine on 07/29/2018
A lovely apartment in an idyllic location. The views and the beach are beautiful, a lovely clean pool and great facilities in the apartment. We loved our stay here,

It was amazing! We recommend the condo to friends and family

by Dave And Catherine on 07/29/2018
We had such a great time. We stayed July 8th-15th. It was amazing, just as described. Very clean, close to everything. The parking spot is quite small but we had a SUV medium sized and we were okay to park the car. We recommend the condo to friends and family. Even our kids (11 and 8) loved the place and even asked to move there! We will certainly go back again to Kona and stay at this place again!

Great location, amazing lanai!

by Cindy on 07/29/2018
Great location Clean Linens Dishes available among other useful tool in the kitchen Amazing Lanai, Concierge Service


by Kathie on 07/29/2018
We have regularly stayed at VRBOs for several years now. With a family of 11 members and still growing, it has been a great alternative to hotels! I must say, we have never had a bad experience with any of them but this house was absolutely spectacular! The layout gives everyone plenty of room to be by themselves or together. Our grandchildren spent hours in the pool! The outside veranda area was huge with plenty of seating - we could all sit around the glass table shown in the opening picture! A couple of items that also stand out were the convenience of the large laundry room (we had towels washing daily) and the generous kitchen amenities. There was an abundance of silverware, glassware, and cooking utensils! We like to make family meals together and there wasn't a thing missing that we needed! The beautiful view and quick drive into Kona contributed to the experience. We have been to the big island before and will probably come again - we would definitely come back to this house!

Spectacular, well kept and clean!

by Clarisse on 07/28/2018
The home was spectacular, well kept, clean, and had everything we needed. Your organization made everything very easy and my contact with the different staff members was pleasant. I definitely would go through you for my next rental. Thank you all for helping my family have a great vacation.

Wonderful Vacation

by Jeff on 07/28/2018
We just returned from a wonderful vacation on the big island. The condo that we rented thru Kona Coast Vacations was perfect. The rental was exactly as advertised and our experience with KCV was flawless. We would certainly book with them again.

Great Views at Casa De Emdeko!

by William on 07/26/2018
I have stayed many times at Casa De Emdeko and Unit 333 was a great unit. The views are wonderful and the grounds well maintained. The unit is clean and quiet. Kona Coast Vacations was wonderful. The AC went out my 1st day there and it was July in Kona.. Very hot and humid. They brought additional fans over and called in for a repairman to fix the problem. I'd stay there again.

Great Time

by Mashael on 07/26/2018
I had a great time staying at unit 203 perfect location, simple and full of life. We have very much enjoyed staying at this unit again. Thank you and have a great evening.

Fantastic Time!

by Kerrie on 07/26/2018
We had a fantastic time. Great property and fantastic location. David the concierge was very helpful and sorted out an amazing helicopter ride for our family at very short notice. We had a wonderful family holiday. Thank you very much. The Mcfarlane clan from N.Z

Absolutely stunning! Beautiful views, perfect stay

by Scarlet on 07/25/2018
Breathtaking views! Perfect for families or a group. Ideal privacy amongst other neighbors. The views in this home are beyond beautiful and will make the best Facebook pictures 😉 Everything was perfect from the amenities to the kitchen to the bedrooms to the cleanliness. Could not ask for a better location, stay, or hosts, everything exceeded expectations. Pictures do not do this home justice until you see it in real time. Will definitely be coming back soon and bring back friends and family.

Great updated condo in a very quiet area!

by Narges on 07/24/2018
The property was clean and updated very nicely. The location was great, and my kids loved the pools. Great views of the golf course and the ocean. Lots of space for everyone to relax and have their own space. Really appreciated all the extra beach chairs, toys, etc. Enjoyed our stay very much! Thank you!

Very comfortable home with everything you need.

by David And Liz on 07/24/2018
The location is central and is easy to navigate. The pool and hot tub provided that added option to stay and chill, or go and venture out. The 2 year old had lots of fun playing in the water feature that flows into the pool. Plenty of fans provided the right amount of airflow to keep things comfortable. There was some "VOG" associated with the Kilauea volcano eruptions which reduced visibility but did not cause any irritation. A short drive to the north side of the island gets you back in the sunshine and beauty of the island. We brought a stroller and high chair on the advice of the property manager only to discover that a high chair, stroller and play pen were stored in the garage. It would have been nice not to haul all extra gear from Canada, oh well, not a biggie. There was plenty of space and elbow room for five adults and one little guy. All in all Mahuahua Place was a great place to enjoy our vacation.

Great top floor unit with views

by Susan on 07/23/2018
This was a great location. Just across the street from one of the only beaches for snorkeling and surfing. The only negative was the early morning noisy neighbors to the east. They got up early and sat outside and talked nonstop which made it difficult to sleep in past 6:30. The beach chairs, umbrella and cooler made trips to the beaches very enjoyable. We particularly enjoyed Two Step beach near the painted church. The steps are to the far right as you look toward the ocean. We were snorkeling with Spinner Dolphins. If you like sushi, don’t pass up the opportunity to try Shimaichi Sushi in Kailua-Kona. Here are a few things that could be addressed to make the property even better: 1) Check the handle on the toilet in the master bathroom. It appears to have been installed toward the seat which, when raised, prevents the toilet from flushing properly. 2) More insulation needs to be added to the roof to reduce the heat buildup inside the unit. Maybe this could occur the next time the roof is replaced. 3) The elevator was stiflingly hot in the afternoon. The fan needs to be checked and solar film needs to be applied to the windows to reduce the heat gain.

WONDERFUL unit. Could not have been happier!!

by Jeff on 07/23/2018
We loved the unit. The grounds were beautiful and the unit was clean. We would highly recommend staying at this location.

Husband and I were blown away!

by Kiyana on 07/22/2018
I stayed at Golf Villas at Maun Lani J23 in April and my husband and I were blown away. Everything was beautiful from the landscaping to the home décor it was very welcoming and clean. We made it a point to have coffee on the patio while looking at the golf course and sunrise in the mornings. The reservation process was a breeze and concierge was extremely helpful. We will definitely be staying at the Golf Villas again upon our return. Thank you so much for such a memorable stay.

Great Time!

by Leilani on 07/22/2018
We had a great time! Mahalo Nui Loa!

Will not disappoint

by Rasmus on 07/19/2018
Mahalo for a nice apartment and service

Our family loved it and votes it one of the best vacations ever!

by Holli on 07/19/2018
Kona is a perfect place to visit. The people, excursions, the beaches, all were so wonderful!

Loved the layout!

by Kathay on 07/19/2018
This apartment is a true two bedroom with a loft, so everyone has a space to sleep, on beds, not just sofa sleepers in the living room. The homeowners have provided a number of nice touches, including fans, air conditioners, ample towels and sheets, boogie boards, beach chairs and an umbrella. This is a nice touch! The kitchen is very clean and well appointed with a dishwasher, fridge and even an oven, coffee maker and microwave. We found the fully stocked set of pots and pans and even Tupperware and utensils so helpful! We did have some concerns about the flying bugs, and the pool rules for kids were pretty strict. We got earfuls from other visiting families about the strict no shouting, no floatation devices rules - we are a pretty chill family, so just having a pool as an option to play in the hot afternoons was nice. Having three bathrooms (toilets and showers) was also a big plus. You are located close the Sheraton and a great Farmer's and crafts market on Thursdays. You are also close to a dock where there is the option to sign up for boat tours and snorkel dives (though some our favorite snorkel spots are really accessible off the beach or road for free). It's outside of the traffic and super-touristy Kailua-Kona strip, but still close to a market, excellent restaurants (Sam Choy's!) and a harbor. No beach close by- you will have to drive North for that! Bring big repellent. And don't forget organic coral safe sunblock- it's now the law!

Wonderful location!

by Lily on 07/19/2018
Wonderful property in a great location. Kids beach is directly across the street which was wonderful for the group that we had (9 people, 2 kids included). Pool was smaller than we thought by the photos but it was perfect for our needs. TV's weren't working in a couple of rooms due to upgrades and other issues but the facility was very responsive and willing to work quickly to get them working. Right behind the old airport and recreational facility, perfect for walks. Incredibly spacious, den with the queen bed and pull out sofa is really a bedroom in itself. Very bright home, curtains are not blackout so prepare to wake up early with the sun, recommend to bring sleep masks if you need to sleep in the darkness.

View from the lanai was amazing!

by Kumi on 07/18/2018
It was a great stay for a week at the sea village 3112 from Japan. The view from the lani was amazing. Pool was very close from the room which was very important for small children, 3 and 5 years old so they could back and forth in a day. The room was big enough for us. It was just a perfect size for two adults and two small children. It was very clean, well furnished, well equipped in the kitchen area where we could literally cook for our kids, and the washer/drier worked they are supposed to. Especially, warm thanks to the maintenance, he came in right away after we sent an email to fix the problems when we had some troubles with hot water. Thanks again. We had a wonderful vacation!

It was a perfect choice!

by Robertha on 07/18/2018
My 2 cousins and I have really enjoyed our stay at the Kila Kila House. It was such a beautiful, relaxing and spaciously floor planned house. It was a perfect choice especially during the 4th of July fireworks that we could see jus' right from the house and we didn't even have to drive to go and see it due to we could see the fireworks right from the Kila Kila House. Thank you very much for accommodating me and my 2 cousins during the July 2nd to July 8th, 2018 holiday and we all really appreciated it very much!

Vacation in Paradise

by Paula on 07/17/2018
We had a fabulous vacation. The home was exactly what we needed for our family. The entire environment was so relaxing and tranquil after our busy day's adventures. We will definitely recommend this location to our friends and extended family. Mahalo!

Wonderful Stay!

by Holli on 07/16/2018
Our stay was wonderful! Perfect house for our family. It may be one of our favorite family vacations!

Wonderful spacious penthouse

by Franziska on 07/15/2018
We enjoyed our stay very much at your spacious and well equipped unit. Air quality and views as well as the sundowns were perfect inspite of some vog from the Volcano. The snorkeling across the street was amazing, the table tennis and table soccer was just fabulous for our teenager. What a great place to spend our vacation at. Great dining locations nearby- we saw the Rays!

Right out of a Postcard!

by Bernie on 07/14/2018
The Bay Watch was everything that was promised and more. The host took care to make sure that everything that might be needed was provided and more. The bedrooms were comfortable, well cared for and wonderfully appointed. The main house was large, stylish and pampered guests in every way. The living and dining rooms had everything needed to take care of our family five and honestly to entertain 10 more if we'd had a mind to. Add to all of this that the house was right out of a post card and you could not ask for more. Whether sitting in the lanai watching the sunset or stepping out of the pool to look down at the colorful fish in the bay below, the house was, in and of itself, a vacation. Thanks to all who helped make this trip to the islands one of the bes

Beautiful views of the ocean. Great place to stay. The condo had everything you need. The rental company was also great to work

by Alyx on 07/14/2018
Beautiful views of the ocean. Great place to stay. The condo had everything you need. The rental company was also great to work with. Highly recommend.

Spacious, good location

by Adam on 07/14/2018
Great spacious apartment with all normal facilities. Good location just outside Kona with nearby shops & supermarket. Access to beaches excellent and if you enjoy golf or tennis both are next door!

Great experience, will be back!

by Kristi on 07/14/2018
This place is awesome!! Everything you need and more for a perfect vacation. It is nice and roomy with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms...great kitchen!!! And the views on the lanai were fabulous. It is a quick drive to town and the beaches-perfect. I was very happy here and will definitely be back to this lovely home on the ocean. What a great experience with Airbnb!!

Thoroughly enjoyed out stay.

by Aaron on 07/14/2018
Fantastic home for my family and me. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were quite comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The unit was spacious, clean and had a very well stocked kitchen with the tools and cookware you would expect. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Absoluteky beautiful, clean, great views.

by Marjorie on 07/14/2018
The condo was absolutely beautiful, clean, spacious with a really great view. The bedroom was at opposite side and it was really nice for privacy ! Thanks a lot.

Amazing view and amazing place

by Michael on 07/14/2018
Amazing view and an amazing place to stay. Very quiet and hosts offered everything you could possibly need! The pool area was quiet the time we were there. We will definitely stay here again on our return trip to Kona!

Living area and lanai are fantastic.

by Ed on 07/14/2018
Really great place. Excellent location near Kona, but quiet. Beautiful view of the golf course and the ocean. Even though you're overlooking the golf course it's totally private so you don't feel like there are golfers peering in on you or hitting golf balls at you. 🙂 Space to pack lots of kids in the upstairs. Living area and lanai are fantastic.


by Rick on 07/14/2018
We loved our stay.

Beautiful sunsets from the lanai

by Trisha on 07/14/2018
We stayed at Sea Village in unit 3112. The place met all our needs. Sunset from the deck was beautiful every night, easy location, green flash coffee (right out the door) had great smoothies and snacks. It would only be better if there was Air Conditioning. However, there were plenty of fans.

This place definitely embodies the magic of Hawaii

by Shannon on 07/14/2018
Amazing place situated right on the water. Listening to the waves roll in every morning just made our experience that much more magical. This place definitely embodies the magic of Hawaii.

Great Views

by Bonnie on 07/14/2018
Great views, 1.5 miles from magic sands beach. About 2 miles from town. The concierge was helpful in booking tours and with suggestions.

This home will not disappoint!!!

by Alanna on 07/14/2018
This home did not disappoint, it was the perfect way to end our last week in Hawaii. It was SO very clean and well-organized. The cabinets are full of cooking gadgets, bowls, tupperware, etc. I also really liked that there was a beverage fridge so all the sparkling water and juices did not take up the actual fridge. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and hanging out on the spacious lanai. The hot tub was amazing as well! The beds were super comfortable. Getting in and out of the private community was very easy. It's location is also great - we were close to the things that mattered to us. We would stay here again 100%!

Highly reccommend the locaion.

by Edith on 07/14/2018
The condo was located in a FANTASTIC area, would highly recommend the location. You are close enough to walk downtown or step out onto the beach. Condo is updated but there was a muskie smell that lasted for a couple days, probably from the condo being closed up for awhile. There were items to borrow such as: Coolers, boggie boards, beach towels, beach chairs, shade umbrella and a snorkel mask plus other items. The pool and hot tube is very close as well. Overall, I would stay here again and yes I would recommend this place.


by Tom on 07/14/2018
Our stay was phenomenal. I was a bit nervous that there was no AC, but the airflow in the home and the breeze made the stay comfortable. My wife and I couldn't say enough about the breathtaking view and enjoyed every minute sitting on the balcony having coffee in the morning or drinks at night. Location was perfect for groceries and food and the drive to Hapuna Beach was easy. The home was spotless with plenty of amenities for cooking, drinks and beach needs. We wished we booked a longer stay...maybe next time. Thank you!

Great condo, great company.

by Jessica on 07/14/2018
Great condo and location. Loved sitting on the large Lanai. Kona Coast was a great company to work with.

Beautiful views off lanai!

by Jessica on 07/14/2018
This was our first visit to the Big Island, and we enjoyed our stay here. The views off the lanai are beautiful. The location is good. It's not walkable to Kona, but it's close and there is a trolley. It was also a short drive to Magic Sands Beach, the kids favorite because of the boogie boarding. The beach at the condo is better to look at than to swim. It is rocky. The kids played on the rocks, but we had a few bumps and bruises from trying to swim. There were always surfers there, though, so it would be a good fit for surfers. The place could use an update, but it was well furnished and well- equipped. A couple times I looked for something, and I found it in a drawer. The keypad entry was awesome. The kids could come and go as they pleased. It was overall a very good experience.

Sunsets from the lanai!

by Ashley on 07/14/2018
This place was amazing! They had everything we needed, and the location was great! I loved the travel tip book that was provided.

Great place to relax!

by Maelynn on 07/14/2018
Great condo. It was clean and quiet. The two pools were wonderful. I loved sitting on the private beach in the morning and listening to the surf. David, our concierge, was fantastic to work with. He was quick to reply to my messages-even on a Sunday! His suggestions were fantastic. I highly recommend this condo.

Everything you need and more.

by Barbara on 07/14/2018
Couldn’t ask for a better condo with the help of Kona Coast. We locked into a homey, comfortable place with a view, no stairs was a plus. The condo had everything, plus more, we needed. Beautiful location!!

Beautiful, well maintained condo

by Craig on 07/14/2018
This is a beautiful condo and has everything you need to enjoy your stay on The Big Island. Great location right on the #2 fairway...close to the clubhouse, pool, restaurants,gas and grocery store. Furnishings and decorating were great ....very comfortable. Enjoyed the lanai...great place fro your morning coffee. I would highly recommend B114 for your visit to The Big Island.

Absolutely Beautiful!

by Veronica on 07/13/2018
We stayed at The Shores at Waikola #124, and the condo was absolutely beautiful! The unit had everything we needed -- snorkel gear, body boards, beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella and so much more. I highly recommend The Shores and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Relaxation at it's Finest

by Jason on 07/13/2018
This tranquil property was my first taste of the big island after getting off the plane...."What A Feeling".... Amenities abound while property begs you to spend time enjoying all the beauty Kona has to offer from the infinity pool and outside gathering area. House was spacious, super clean and offered every type of kitchenware you could ever need ... (if you travel a lot, you know what I am talking about) ...... I usually don't give reviews on places that are this cool (don't want to let out the secret) ... Definitely will be back to enjoy again...Huli Pau!

Mauna Lani Islands K1

Excellent! Mahalo Nui

Great Place to Stay!

by Dawn on 07/09/2018
This was a great place to stay with all the amenities and gorgeous view from the back patio and pool! Loved the birds that came to visit and say hello! The drive to Hilo for the Helicopter ride over the volcano is a must! Its an hour drive away but well worth the drive! We will definitely be going back to stay in this home! I can't wait for our next vacation!

Amazing Vacation Home!

by Erika on 07/07/2018
This place has everything you could ever need. View, pool, space, location, amenities. We came with our two kids (17 & 20) and they each got a room. The interior is beautiful and spotless. They have beach towels (lots) kitchen equipment, extra bath towels, we didn’t have anything we needed to get. The outdoor living area and pool by far got the most use. There are pool toys, extra cushions for chairs and loungers, BBQ, table, etc. we spent several days pool side and evenings eating dinner and playing cards on the lanai. The location is great, terrific view! Close to Kona. We watched the Kona 4th of July fireworks show from the backyard! Vacation property mangers very helpful and kind. There have been concerns abiut the vog from the volcano; and while a bit hazy some days it’s still Hawai’i and wonderful! It didn’t hinder us at all. We will absolutely return to this wonderful home!!

Amazing Experience

by Timothy on 07/05/2018
My wonderful husband planned our trip to the Big Island and found the Orchid Inn online. He had been to the Big Island before and said it was his favorite Island. Staying here at the Orchid Inn has been and amazing experience. The grounds, I enjoyed exploring the grounds and picking the fruit from the trees. I love Lilikoi and wish it had been in season. I absolutely fell in love with this house, every part of the design and being able to keep it open. It is such a comfortable place to stay and would love to return. The Lanai is amazing and the funky mirror that opens to a screened window just made me appreciate whoever customized the Orchid Inn. I sincerely enjoyed every moment of our stay even during Kilauea's eruption, haze in the sky. Hawaii has now won a place in my heart. I hope to return soon

Spotlessly clean, perfectly organised

by Devon on 07/04/2018
This is a home away from home, where all amenities have been thought of and are generously provided. Kitchen utensils, dishes & cookware comprehensive; bathroom towels, TP, soap and shampoo; the beds are comfortable and the linen quality; beach towels and snorkeling gear; outdoor seating comfortable (bbq problems); and close to thee necessities such as the beach, petroglyphs, groceries, cafes and easy access to the highway for northern, southern and eastern excursions. Instructions get in were painless.

My stay was excellent!

by Hiram on 07/04/2018
I enjoyed the room and it was very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again. Thankyou for a great room. Aloha

Fantastic view

by Richard on 07/03/2018
Fantastic view from patio, comfortable and convenient. I'm glad we stayed at 1103 Sea Village

Everything was amazing!

by Jennifer on 07/03/2018
The condo was perfect, decorated beautifully and had everything we needed and even more. Would definitely pick same condo when we come back.

Highly Recommend

by Julie on 07/02/2018
This condo was just so lovely and the ocean front ocean views were absolutely stunning!! Everything was very clean and the condo was stocked with everything you could possibly need: dish soap and detergent, laundry detergent, trash bags, zip lock bags, grill tools, beach towels, coolers, pool and beach toys, etc. I’ve stayed at the Kona Reef complex several times and the location is perfect.


by Tim on 07/01/2018
Very nice place

Amazing View!

by Jenna on 07/01/2018
The view was just like the pictures - very amazing, which is what we were hoping for and one of the main reasons for picking it. It was a very hot couple of days during our stay and the AC unit was a portable unit in the bedroom, so the living room did get very warm during the day. This would probably not be an issue during a cooler week. Located within a mile of the main shop/restaurant area and easy parking which was helpful. We had plans already but there was a concierge service willing to help if we needed it which was nice. Overall, good value for a few nights in this area.

Would definately return!

by Teresa on 07/01/2018
The condo is a very nice place and Included all the amenities. Conveniently located to a snorkel beach. Away from all the congestion and tourist traffic of the downtown area made for a peaceful night's and peaceful morning walks. Would definitely return.

Mornings and evenings on the lanai overlooking the water was perfect

by Jeff on 07/01/2018
Our place in Alii Villas was amazing--older, but clean, with a fantastic view, no traffic noise (we were just up from the water), great fairly large and little-used pool. Mornings and evenings on the lanai overlooking the water was perfect--dolphins each morning, lots of boating traffic (so far off, no sound), sunrises and sunsets. 1.5 miles from Kailua Village and only .5 miles from a great little beach to the north, to which we walked each morning.

The house is huge and nicely decorated.

by Josina on 07/01/2018
Outdooor bbq and beach club we're both amenities we enjoyed. It's fully equipped with cookware and stocked with basic spices, making cooking very simple. The host is very responsive and also let us check in early when the house was ready.

Gorgeous ocean view.....plenty of room for two couples!

by Molly on 07/01/2018
Huge wrap around lanai that looks directly at the ocean. Front room has gorgeous ocean views, back room has only mountain views. Large condo, plenty for space and privacy for two couples.

Perfect Condition!

by Albert on 07/01/2018
Everything was very well taken care of by the management company. The apartment was in perfect condition. It was spacious and just right. In addition we were near the pool and shopping areas. All very good. Thank you.

This place is amazing. The view is beautiful.

by Jason on 07/01/2018
They have every amenity you could need for a trip! The unit is clean and comfortable. Very up to date with the latest things you want and need from appliances to WiFi and flatscreens. There were no hiccups during our stay. It's in prime location right by the town. The check in and check out process was simple as can be. If I ever come back. I would definitely book again with Kona Coast. Aloha!

Awesome place and awesome host!

by Rob on 07/01/2018
Very nice relaxing and clean place. Customer service is A++. When we comeback to vacation in the big island we will definitely use Kona Coast Vacations again. Thank you very much.

Perfect location - great views

by James on 07/01/2018
This condo is in the perfect location in the complex. Sweeping views of the water and sunset, right next to the pool, and close to the shared grills. The condo is well provisioned - kitchen has all we needed to cook and the laundry machines are super helpful after days in the sun and sand. Only two downsides: No AC - it was hot. The fans and breeze helped, but required sleeping with the doors open. Property location pin on VRBO is wrong. It shows the unit right in the main drag - it isn't. It is a mile down the coast - to far to walk to dinner comfortably.

Gorgeous home

by Amy on 07/01/2018
Gorgeous home with all the amenities! The view of the ocean and sunset never ceased to amaze us during our stay. My only complaint would be the pool. Not sure why the water appeared green. We called David and he had someone out the next day. It cleared up slightly.
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 are very sorry that you experienced an issue with the pool during your stay. Your concern has been shared with the management team & the property owner and the decision was made to change to another pool maintenance company. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again. Mahalo Kona Coast Vacations

Gorgeous, fully equipped home with AMAZING views

by Natalie on 06/30/2018
We want to thank you for inviting our family to stay in this beautiful home. The views were breathtaking with the best sunsets on the island. It was equipped with anything you needed and more. The layout was perfect, a house we would want to build someday. The kids had a great time in the pool. I know reviews spoke to the coolness of the pool, but it was fine, and the little jetted area got really warm with the “warm blaster” button. We enjoyed rinsing ourselves off in the out door shower after a day at the beach. Although this house is not on the beach, I’d much prefer this view and visiting different beaches. It seemed like there were zero bugs bothering you, so enjoying the outside was great and having the walls opened up was stunning! Thank you!

definitely recommend

by Jenny on 06/30/2018
We felt very at home at our rental place. Plenty of great facilities included, even bogie boards and snorkels! Lots of space as a couple, and/or family as it had 2 seperate bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Will definitely recommend to friends.


by Nina on 06/29/2018
This unit is beautiful- well stocked and the area is so quiet. Great location, wonderful beach access- we had no problem with VOG at all, everting was above 5 stars!!!!

Practically perfect in every way!

by Guillermo on 06/29/2018
An affordable splurge for a grown up family of five with four bedrooms for 25-30 year old “kids” and spouse/friends gathering for a biannual family vacation. House offers luxury and coziness with a Kona indoor/outdoor twist. Everyone comes away with a favorite nap and sunset spot. Central to Kona coast activities. Enjoy a blend of mom & pops and 5 star restaurants as well as a mix of planned and spur of the moment Kona experiences.

Loved the House!

by Bret on 06/28/2018
Thank you for sharing it. We snorkled in the bay just below and saw lots of fish--yellow tang and a turtle. Also snorkled by the airport beach and just below us on the busy beach, and with the manta rays. Three of us enjoyed watching the manta rays come in from the observation deck at the Sheratan Hotel. Bret and Baylee did a scuba dive. We all enjoyed the pool. The 4 younger members of the family took a helecopter ride and loved it, and they visited a coffee farm. As you can see, we did plenty. Loved all the room, so we could play games and eat some of our meals together.

Condo is just right for 3, grounds are lovely

by Pascale on 06/27/2018
We were happy with the accommodations, the pull-out bed in the living room is comfortable. The stove was fine, the cooking utensils adequate (not great quality, could have used a large frying pan). We did have the water shut down on Thursday mornings due to some repairs, it took awhile for the hot water to return after but Kona Coast was responsive. The grounds are meticulously tended to, lovely. I would be happy to stay again.

Definitely coming back

by Chris on 06/27/2018
Loved the property, great location. Definitely coming back and will tell all my friends and family about this place.

Great location!

by Kip on 06/27/2018
Local surfers to watch all day. Plenty of parking close to the unit. Would defiantly stay here again.

clean and comfortable

by James on 06/27/2018
The condo was clean and comfortable. Wife love the amenities like the pool. No laundry in this unit but we made do and some kind of clunky air conditioner noise that we almost got used to haha. We had a great time doing the usual stuff like snorkeling and fishing and an awesome helicopter ride to view the eruption and Lava River. It's been 15 years since we've been to the island and yeah it's getting more crowded but we still found plenty of the Aloha spirit and will be back again

The condo was perfect!!

by Marie on 06/26/2018
We had an awesome time in Hawaii! A lot of it was because of the great and comfortable condo we stayed in. Kona Coast Vacations were very nice and were there to answer questions and make sure we were taken care of. Thank you so much for your hospitality and great service! Mahalo Nui!

Clean & bright Condo in a great location

by Caroline on 06/26/2018
We had a nice stay and the condo fulfilled all of our needs. The condo is clean and bright and we liked the fact to have snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach stairs and umbrella available to use. We explored different beaches such as Puako, Kekaha Kai Beach Park, Kahalu’u Beach Park and more! The location of the condo was perfect, right behind The Kings Shop and Shell gas station as well as a short walk away over to The Queens Market Place. Plus minutes away from A Bay. The kitchen was well equipped with amenities and I loved the special faucet to refill water bottles! The sofa sleeper we had available gave us a good laugh when we opened it up! It had never been used before and the mattress was still in its original plastic wrapping 🙂 Kona Coast Vacation is very responsive and fixed our flickering bath room light right away. Thank you for making us feel home away from home.

Perfect location! Great condo

by Yann on 06/26/2018
Well maintained and located property. Feet away from the beach and the turtle. We had a little kitchen sink problem the first day and maintenance was done in 24 hours. Great communication and service. Highly recommended


by Katherine on 06/25/2018
The pool was great, condo was VERY comfortable and the location was FABULOUS!!! Also, the concierge was FANTASTIC!!! We had the BEST trip ever and will definitely be back soon!!!!

It was a great home

by Trisha on 06/24/2018
Gorgeous views , doesn't get any more “ocean front” or beautiful, view wise. LOVE the deck on the house ; it's definitely one of a kind. The kids room is adorable & the master set up is amazing . Love that ALL bedrooms have an ocean view and LOVE the auto shades that come down to block out heat and light when wanted. I would recommend the owners get air box units in the kitchen & living room. It can get very hot inside due to Hawaii heat/humidity . It was a great home !

Comfortable stay

We had a comfortable stay at Waikoloa Villas H202. Kids loved the loft area with their own bathroom. The condo had a nice cross ventilation so we didn't need an A/C. The place was clean overall but the bathroom showers could have used a little better cleaning with some Clorox Clean-up in the tile grouts. Also the master bathroom toilet area was so small you can barely close the bathroom door when you get in. The bathrooms and kitchen are a little outdated but they are totally functional.

Beautiful very clean and spacious!!

by Karen on 06/24/2018
Karen J. Big Lanai we enjoyed our morning Kona coffee and evening cocktails. We had wonderful dinners on the BBQ grill provided overlooking the ocean. Beautiful pool, we saw some spectacular sunsets from the bench viewing area of the ocean. And we seen spinner dolphins from the Lanai. What a bonus to have beach gear and chairs available .that we took to Kahalu beach park for some awesome snorkeling. We had a great time and will stay here again and tell friends and family!

Comfortable space.....walk and explore.

by Adriana on 06/22/2018
Condo was great. Very comfortable space within an area one can walk and explore. Not much as far as building amenities go but the condo makes up for cleanliness, comfort level and overall appeal. Great find.

We made some happy memories

by Paula on 06/22/2018
Fantastic place to stay. We received nothing less than excellent customer service ....The condo was great, perfect place to stay ..... we will miss that fabulous lanai overlooking the ocean..... what a view!....

This was a good condo and we'd stay there again

by Joshua on 06/22/2018
This was a good property and we enjoyed our stay there. The AC worked well, as did the fans, we never felt uncomfortable. This was a good condo and we'd stay there again. Our only negatives were about the property and cant really be helped. The pools were mediocre and between the morning light and loud birds we found ourselves waking up a little earlier than we'd like each morning.

Very Good Experience

by Pascale on 06/22/2018
We had a wonderful time at Casa De Emdeko. It was tidy and convenient, quiet at night. The location is great, close to things but not in the middle of it. The pools were awesome. The beautiful grounds are tended to meticulously. I would do it all over again (and hopefully will soon)! They were doing some work requiring the water to be off Thursday mornings, which was inconvenient and it took about two days for the hot water to return to our condo, when I phoned to complain Kona Coast was very responsive. Overall we had a very good experience.

We recommend this place to anyone

by John on 06/19/2018
This was the nicest (most up scale) place we stayed on the Big Island, far more upscale than we anticipated for the price. The communications were above and beyond the standard expectation, and the grounds were extremely nice. We recommend this place to anyone for either a romantic get-away or for a whole family.

Would definitely come back

by Venkatesh on 06/19/2018
The fan in the master bedroom was noisy and there was no door to the master bathroom. Other than that it was an amazing place! Would definitely come back!!

Incredible Big Island Stay

by George on 06/19/2018
We had an absolutely fabulous time at Mauna Lani 333. The property is in absolutely immaculate condition and really truly a luxury stay. Not only is it a huge 3 bedroom and 3.5 bath condo, it is decked out to the nines. Let me just say, my wife is a professional interior designer and I had to drag her out kicking and screaming. All the fixtures, furnishings, woodwork, etc are of very high quality. Everything from the large and beautiful kitchen to the full wall armoir that has a TV that rises magically out of it from below with the push of a button. The bedrooms have large and very comfortable beds and luxury bathrooms with separate bathtubs and showers. TVs in every bedroom, a 2 car garage, all the towels and linens you would need.... the list just goes on and on. Then to watch the beautiful sunsets from the lanai was also a treat. it is located on the Kohala cost and the weather was picture perfect each day and also in that location you are within 5 miles of the two best beaches on the island (hapuna beach and beach 69). We couldn't have been more pleased and would highly recommend on your next trip to the big island. And for all those news stories and photos on the island regarding Kilauea, please ignore. We were there for 6 days during 'eruptions' and earthquakes and given its 70 miles from the northwest coast, it might as well had been 5000 miles away. The news has done Hawaii a major disservice so unless you are planning to stay on the southeast coast, please don't hesitate to visit.

Exactly as shown

by Michelle on 06/18/2018
This property was exactly as shown in its ad. It was clean and very well stocked with all of the tools needed to cook a meal. The waves were right outside of the patio and a nice beach was about 50 feet to the left of the patio. The pool and spa were wonderful as well as the gas BBQ's available in the pool area. As there were two 18 year olds in our group it was nice that 'town' was within easy walking distance from our unit - they could walk in and shop or grab a snack without an adult (who was authorized to drive the rental car) having to drive them. I definitely would recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Beautiful home and wonderful service

by Laura on 06/18/2018
This is our second time renting a home through Kona Coast Vacations and both have been great. Photos of the home are a good representation of the rental. The kitchen was well stocked and the grill was in perfect. Will use Kona Coast Vacations again if we return to the Big Island.

great location!

by Pamela on 06/18/2018
super comfy accommodations and nice staff!

Well appointed

by Carmen on 06/18/2018
Perfect directions given. Condo was presented exactly as appeared on line. Well appointed with beach towels, cooler, and beach chairs. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook with and was organized.

great stay

by Jean-Pierre on 06/18/2018
Very good service from Kona Coast Vacations. Very responsive to our requests. We had a great stay at Kona Isle E21.

Had a lovely stày in Condo

by Carol on 06/18/2018
No problems at all. Just wish we had stayed longer. Highly recommend this Condo to everyone. Did a night snorkel with manta Ray's, with my kona adventures thru groupon, it was absolutely amazing saw 12 manta Ray's and normally people only see between 2 to 4. Highly recommend this company too.

We loved the house!

by Whitney on 06/17/2018
Amazing home! If/when we come back with a large group we will definitely book again! The home was absolutely beautiful, there was plenty of room for our family, and the amount of amenities were extravagant. Loved!

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Ali'i Villas.

by Karen on 06/17/2018
This is a truly beautiful place. We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Ali'i Villas. The directions were perfect. We had no trouble finding it. The view was fantastic from the lanai. We loved eating our breakfasts there and watching the sunset. There were guidebooks provided, Hawaiian music CDs along with everything we needed to have a fantastic time. It is about a mile from Kona for those who like to walk. We did it several times.

We always love coming to Casa, the views are amazing

by Richard on 06/17/2018
The grounds are beautiful. Loved the saltwater pool. The views are fantastic.Our room was awesome. Loved the hawaian decor.

A very nice and comfortable stay

by George on 06/16/2018
A very nice and comfortable stay. The KCV Team was friendly, available and very responsive. We would use KCV for a rental again in the future.

Super impressed with your responses, communication, and concierge services

by Matthew on 06/15/2018
We had a great stay! The location, comfort, views, and amenities were awesome! And Kona Coast vacations customer service was beyond exceptional. We loved the concierge services and felt like they really cared to make our vacation amazing. Would definitely stay here again.


by Kim on 06/15/2018
Great place to stay, clean,quiet and good location.

We absolutely LOVED this house!

by Mariam on 06/15/2018
Every family/couple has their own room and bathroom. Extremely clean and well organized. The backyard and pool was the cherry on top.

Perfect set up for up to 8 people.

by William on 06/15/2018
Nice large rooms. Very clean. Pool is good size. Kitchen and separate dining can accommodate a large group. Nice to have beach equipment in garage.

Wish we stayed longer...

by Julia on 06/15/2018
We loved our stay in Kona! Had an amazing trip and accommodations were stellar. The view from house was spectacular and my family enjoyed every minute of it. Wish we would have made it a longer trip, always next time. David was more than helpful and responded immediately with anything we had questions about. We would most definitely come back. Thank you for everything!


by Kathryn on 06/14/2018
Property was as advertised. In great condition. Lovely neighborhood, great location and stunning views. Bedding comfortable, House well stocked. I would come back again.

Incredibly beautiful and perfectly located

by Sherry on 06/13/2018
We had a wonderful vacation in this beautiful home. Eight adults all had plenty of room to make our own. The bedrooms were nice and cool, the pool and hot tub and lanai area was so comfortable it made it very hard to get up and explore the island. Loved the large kitchen for cooking. We had a dinner party one night with 13 guests total and had plenty of room and cookware, etc. to make and serve our meal. The location is so convenient. My husband competed in the 70.3 Ironman and we also went on diving and snorkeling adventures, luau's and went shopping and found everything easy to get to. The privacy and security of the beach was nice and the guards all helpful and nice too. I hope we get to return to this house again one day.

We certainly would come back again.

by Charles on 06/13/2018
This was the second time we've enjoyed staying at the K1 villa. The first time (two years ago) was very enjoyable, but this year, after substantial renovations to the unit, our stay was thoroughly enjoyed by all five of us in the new luxurious setting. This place has all the amenities one can ask for on a Hawaiian vacation, including a variety of close by beaches, a swimming pool, shops and other tourist attractions.

Only downfall is, I wish we could've stayed longer!!

by Noy on 06/11/2018
We absolutely loved our stay at this unit! We had the best views in the entire complex and to walk out to the ocean every morning and night was exactly what we imagined. The lanai with the dining table was perfect for breakfast. Although it was nice and cool in the mornings, we wish it had air conditioning but it wasn't a big deal, thank you for providing fans! And everything else we needed, even cooking oil!! That was a plus for cooking breakfast. The coffee maker was so nice and all the swimming stuff was wonderful, thank you so much! They provided everything: hairdryer, flat iron, soap, shampoo, towels, beach towels, SNORKELING GEAR, coffee maker, sugar, salt, laundry detergents and dryer sheets! I named those because I packed them and shouldn't have. Made my luggage heavy when I could have left them at home. The pullout couch is surprisingly comfy and it wasn't mentioned in the description so it was a plus! No problems of bugs like other reviewers said just birds chirping in the morning. We will definitely be booking the same place again in the future. So close of a walk to secret tide pools at the other end of the resort near the public beach. Only downfall is, one week was too short, wish we could've stayed longer. Mahalo for everything!!

Highly Reccommend!

by Yann on 06/11/2018
Good location and very well maintained place. We had a little issue with the kitchen sink and was taking care immediately by the host. Excellent communication. I highly recommend.


by James on 06/11/2018
The condo we stayed in was excellent and very well-maintained. Definitely would repeat staying there.

wonderful stay at Waiha Loop Kona Peppa

by Donald on 06/11/2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was incredibly clean, even all of the outdoor flooring. It is just as beautiful as the photos. The pool was great, and we also really enjoyed the spa hot-tub, which was fun to hang out in. Kona Coast Vacations was very organized and has a well-tuned process for everything. We would definitely rent with them again!

One of our best vacation properties

by Annette on 06/11/2018
The house is as pictured and was absolutely perfect for a family group which included 6 and 9 year old children and grandma. Convenient access through the garage with a hose nearby for keeping sand out of the house. All the furnishings were top quality as were the decorations. Location is great for beaches and trips to anywhere on the island. The large pool is beautiful and well maintained with very comfortable outside furniture. The erupting volcano created some vog in the Kona area but it did not bother us....we found blue skies and sun by traveling a bit north. A predawn trip to see the lava flow by boat was amazing . Fairwinds does a great night snorkel with the Manta Rays and Kona Coast Vacations, which manages the property, was great to deal with both before and during our stay. If asked for any way in which this rental home could be improved, I would suggest a shop vac in the garage for cleaning the inevitable sand collection out of the car. This review is from a frequent renter of family vacation properties and I will say that Hawaiian Honu house is amomg the best.

awesome views corner unit offers great privacy

by Catherine on 06/10/2018
Kona Coast Vacations is the way to go for booking. Its less expensive and they go out of their way to accommodate all questions, needs and concerns. All of the properties were immaculately clean! (We booked 4 different condos as we had a rather large party) Each unit had various recreational gear, coolers, snorkeling, boogie boards, beach chairs etc. Will definitely book with Kona Coast again

Great condo!

by Shana on 06/10/2018
We love this location near Keauhou Shopping Center and with a nice view of Kahaluu. It’s a quiet building and the unit was clean and comfortable. Kitchen is well furnished. Everything was great.

Great for a large family or group of friends

by Pamela on 06/08/2018
The house is large, spread out with a big well stocked kitchen. The pool was much smaller in person than it looked in the photos. But it was comfortable and it ended up working just fine for our group. Location to the beach was good, walking from the driveway to the beach in a couple of minutes. Location to great restaurants, Kona Brewery, shopping was all very close. The house was clean, big lanai for entertaining and well equipped in a gated community. It is a bit dated and a few things have seen more than normal wear and tear but with our large group it worked well. One draw back is the large ball field on the other side of the pool fence so it can get loud in the evenings and weekends.The management group (Kona Vacations) was excellent! They deserve a 10 on the rating scale! They answered so many questions both by email and by phone. I got to talk to a helpful person each time I called. I never had to leave a voicemail and wait for a call back. The person that answered the phone always figured out and fixed any issues that I had. And ten days after leaving the rental I realized that I had left two important things behind. The owner of the company personally went to the house to find the items and they were kind enough to overnight them to us. They were pleasant and helpful.


by Jessica on 06/07/2018
Beautiful location and the house had wonderful amenities!

Amazing place!

by Jason on 06/07/2018
Great location in Kona and great living space.

It was all incredible!

by Kelly on 06/07/2018
Perfect vacations! The place had an breathtaking view of the beautiful golf course with the see at the horizon. We enjoy having our breakfest sitting at the balcony and apreciating this view and the birds singing. The place was very confortable, clean and fully equipied! Totaly reccomend!!

Great place and great view!

by Trenton on 06/07/2018
We enjoyed it and would stay again!

A spacious, clean and very well appointed

by Lissa on 06/06/2018
A spacious, clean and very well appointed top-floor unit in a comfortable set of condos right across the small lake from the King's Shops in Waikoloa. The unit is in one of the smaller buildings, so we didn't hear any other tenants, but it is above the pool/central area of the complex, so there was a fair amount of activity below. Kona Coast was attentive...

Had a very relaxing vacation...

by Kempton on 06/06/2018
Excellent location and well appointed with amazing views of the ocean and convenient access to Turtle Beach. Being 2.5 miles from downtown Kona, it's a spirited walk into town for an iced Kona brew or a 2.5 mile walk south to an amazing snorkeling location. We had a very relaxing vacation and the accommodations couldn't have been more suited to our needs.

Great location, spectacular susets, romantic

by Kent on 06/05/2018
We recently vacationed at Kona Nalu 203. The condo is comfortable, clean, well equipped and beautifully appointed. The lanai was where we spent the evenings watching the spectacular sunsets. Sleeping with the sound of waves in the background was incredible. The volcano did not affect our time in Kona, the trade winds kept the air shoreline clear. We watched turtles in tide pools out front while having our morning coffee. We truly love the island and would visit again and stay here for the quiet, private and romantic qualities of the place.

Great design of shared house with private spaces

by Melanie on 06/05/2018
Wonderful stay! Our group of 9 fit perfectly, and we could have easily added 1 more (1 person had private room). Loved using the lanai for breeze and could hear ocean all throughout the house. Kitchen was very well-appointed, and we made good use of it. Loved the poolside BBQ and open floor plan. The guesthouse onsite was also great. We never needed the extra kitchen, but it was a nice private space for 2 of the people in our party to share. This house is great because you can be together with your large group and still have your own private spaces. Would especially recommend for a multigenerational family group or 2 families together. Would stay again!

Our stay at Nani Kahakai, Kailua Kona was incredible!

by Georgette on 06/04/2018
Our stay at Nani Kahakai, Kailua Kona was incredible. Beautiful home, very clean, comfortable, had all the necessities we would have had in our own home to make our stay very pleasant. Definitely, will stay there again. Mahalo, Kona Coast Vacations!

Location was perfect

by Judy on 06/04/2018
Perfect in every way! 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!!

Had a great time on Hawaii

by Nathalie on 06/04/2018
We had a great time on Hawaii. The condo was well equiped, very clean, quiet and directly on the ocean. In the morning, we could hear the waves and the birds. It was very relaxing. There was everything we need for the beach too.

We loved it. it was a good fit for us

by Joan on 06/04/2018
Good location for us (2 teenagers traveling with us - an older couple). Nicely decorated and everything we needed. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub and beach across the street. Would stay here again. Liked the arrangement of the 2 bedrooms being on opposite ends of the condo.

Pretty amazing

by Shawn on 06/04/2018
This review is for the property at IO Way in Konya, HI I’ll just put the bottom line up front. If this property is within your budget just book it. It’s spotlessly clean and everything is very high quality and high end. It’s well furnished with lots of extras. The infinity pool and spa are wonderful. The master suit is huge. The bathroom has dual rainfall shower heads and a glass door leads to an outdoor shower! (See photo). The view is awesome and the landscaping makes you feel like you are staying in a botanical garden. This property is something that a movie star would book. I would add that this is for responsible adults. It was completely quiet at night. No dogs barking, no car sounds, no slamming doors, no music, nothing.


by Susan on 06/03/2018
beautiful place. Outstanding ocean view. lacking complete privacy between rooms, due to wall that do not go up to ceiling.

Beautiful views, huge lanai!

by Kimberly on 06/03/2018
Quiet, super clean, beautiful views, huge lanei, easy access/parking as well! We had lots of extra linens and pillows as well as an amazingly well stocked kitchen! This place is out of the direct hustle of Kona but super close! Pools are a bit small and nothing special, but if you are planning to explore the whole area it is a good hub!

Watch the waves from the balcony

by Beatrice on 06/03/2018
It is a very cozy apartment, which is tiptop decorated! The pool is also nice and comfortable. From the balcony you can watch the waves. We liked it very much.


by Maureen on 06/03/2018
Alii Point 12 is all it said. This home is spectacular . It is off the road and very quiet. The views are gorgeous from so many areas of the house. Opening the living room doors/screens fully open makes you not want to even leave the house. Watching the boats, snorkelers, rowers and even saw some dolphins. We couldn't stop taking pictures. The house is very clean (and I am very particular when it come to that). Kitchen is well equipped. The downstairs hallway closet is a full of extra towels and has beach towels. There is plenty of beach stuff in the garage, chairs, snorkels, fins........ equipped for all ages. We were there with 3 couples and plenty of room for all and them some. We ventured on the rocks and one snorkeled, but advisable for only adult experienced snorkelers. The location is great. Short ride into town and in less than an hour you can visit many different resorts and beautiful beaches. A few of the lights in the house were burned out and 2 of the ocean lights on seawall, but not a big deal. Fabulous place.

Big spacious lanai with a view of the ocean!

by Laura on 06/01/2018
Everything was done so nice and clean. The decor is fun and cozy and really reminds you that you are on vacation. My husband and I stayed on the pull out bed and it was very comfortable and big it is a queen size. My sister and brother in law stayed in the bedroom with a king size bed. I took a nap one day on that bed and it was very comfortable as well. Every morning we woke up to beautiful bird songs as well as lots of cute little geckos outside to watch from the lanai with our coffee in the morning and watched the ocean. The pool and ocean are close by and they have lots of beach chairs and pool and ocean toys and towels. I loved the pool it is one of the nicest I have been in. Perfect temperature and big with a deep end. Very clean with a shower to use before and after your swim. This condo was easy to find are parking spot is very close to the entrance and because it is on the main level you don't have to lug your suitcases up stairs. It was nice and easy and close to everything, beach, pool, dining, shops. Just great! Will stay again and again!

very comfortable

by James on 06/01/2018
The rental was very comfortable and well equipped. The décor was tasteful and unexpected items like boogey boards, swim fins, goggles and coolers were found in the linen area. The beds were outstanding and we slept better then at home. The manager was very helpful and friendly.

Everything was clean, quiet and orderly.

by Matt on 05/31/2018
Everything was clean, quiet and orderly. We went in May, so having no A/C wasn't an issue. Lots of ceiling fans. The lenai is awesome and the golf course wasn't crazy while we were there. Very centrally located to all things “Kona”.

Pictures don't do it justice! Amazing!

by Jake on 05/31/2018
This house was amazing! The amenities provided were beyond what was advertised and the pictures DO NOT do the house justice. We were so impressed by the layout and view. Communication with Kona Coast Rentals was great. Went with family. It was perfect for our family of five. Highly recommend.

We had a great time and the place was absolutely beautiful!

by Gabriel on 05/31/2018
This is an absolutely beautiful home that come with all the amenities you may need on a trip to Hawaii. The house was fully equipped and had an amazing view. It was very comfortable and fresh.

Clean...would defintaley reccommend!

by Jamie on 05/31/2018
Loved the cleanliness of this place. Beautiful view from the wrap around balcony. Pleasant surprise, there is a running/bike trail on the road in front of the condo. I ran each morning both directions. In 1.5 miles is a beautiful beach and a great restaurant is only 500 feet from the condo. Definitely recommend this place to stay.

Thanks Kona Coast Vacations for a great stay.

by Tony on 05/31/2018
Clean and comfortable place. Stocked with things that we needed but didn't think about bringing like a cooler and ice packs. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals when not eating out. Conveniently located across from a great snorkeling site. It was a good base for us to explore the rest of the island. Thanks Kona Coast Vacations for a great stay.

We loved it!

by Soterios on 05/31/2018
What a great place! We loved it. Especially the spectacular lanai looking over the ocean. Amazing!

Definatley reccommend....everything you'll need!

by Karol on 05/31/2018
Great space. Plenty of room for all of us. Had all our meals on the patio overlooking the ocean. Stocked with everything you'll need. Would definitely book again or recommend.

One of the best AirBnB's we have had!

by Elise on 05/31/2018
One of the best AirBnB's we have had! Perfect house for our family that included 3 couples and one child. Beautiful outdoor space with spacious patio and amazing pool! We loved that the pool had an adjoining hot tub where you could turn on the hot water as needed. The pool temperature was very comfortable (I personally dislike cold pools!). The whole house was spotless clean!! Spacious kitchen and dining area for family dinners. Outdoor shower was a neat touch. The view was spectacular! Overall, super positive experience!! Would definitely return and would highly recommend.

Highly enjoyed....and would reccommend!

by Erin on 05/31/2018
Great accommodation and view. The amenities were also very inclusive and communication with the host was excellent and quick. I appreciated the small touches like washing soap for clothes and handy notes here and there within the rental unit. Everything was clean and orderly upon arrival. I would recommend this to any friend and family member.Thank you so much for making our vacation super relaxing and easy

Good choice for quiet space...

by Michael on 05/31/2018
Well-appointed and spacious unit in a quiet residential neighborhood roughly 12 minutes from town (driving). Nearby: Golf, rock Beach, and numerous restaurants. This is a good choice if you want a quiet space. It is not really walking distance to the ocean.

Just across from beach!

by Warren on 05/31/2018
Great location just across from the beach, which has wonderful snorkeling. Quiet and peaceful at night and in the morning.

Beautiful property

by Mark on 05/31/2018
We were on the island of Hawaii for a wedding at the Hilton. This unit was a wonderful place to stay with easy access to everything we needed. The unit was clean and just as described. The only thing missing was a pathway to the pool from the unit since we were technically steps away from it but had to go around the building to get to the pool. It was not a big deal though. We loved visiting the petroglyphs trail nearby the King's shopping mall. The only thing missing was a sandy beach but then we are spoiled by usually going to Maui and having beaches at our door! Yes, we would stay here again if we came to the island. Absolutely lovely home.

Kona riviera #203

by Dennis on 05/31/2018
We had a great time and found our Kona riviera #203 unit to be perfect- quiet, clean, comfortable well-equipped, and conveniently located! VOG masked those beautiful Hawaiian sunsets, but we still had a great time and will come back!

The location of your apartment was perfect!

by Rushabh on 05/31/2018
The location of the apartment was ideal with the west facing balcony we could see the beautiful sunset every single day. The apartment was clean and spacious and was close to all the good restaurants. Would definitely stay there again

Wonderful condo - great view from lanai!!

by Fiona on 05/30/2018
This is a very comfortable condo - well- equipped and the ceiling fans were wonderful to keep the place cool. The complex is very quiet and located close to a good shopping centre. Our only issue was that new neighbors moved in the unit above and they were quite noisy, We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay there again!!

Quiet, Beautiful Setting

by Dennis on 05/30/2018
I was traveling by myself, so I was looking for a small quiet place to work on a writing project. This unit was ideal for that purpose. The unit and the complex its in are beautifully landscaped. Its very peaceful. The unit is quite small, so I wouldn't recommend it for any more than two people. The complex also has a recently upgraded swimming pool that's perfect. The unit does not have air conditioning but it has four ceiling fans that keep it comfortable. The furnishings and decor are worn and somewhat faded, but this was not a negative for me. In fact, I've already reserved the unit for two visits later this year and next. The property management company was exceptionally helpful and responsive on two minor items that came up.

Great place to stay

by Larry on 05/30/2018
Property is is very well maintained. Condo was recently remodeled and very comfortable. View was great. Enjoyed watching the boats coming and going especially the outriggers practicing. Would defiantly return here and would have no problem referring a friend. Broke de mouth restaurant is a great place to enjoy real Island food at reasonable prices.

Our stay was wonderful!

by Christine on 05/29/2018
Our stay was wonderful! The unit is very comfortable and well equipped! We enjoyed the patio and outdoor space immensely. The sound of the waves and the wonderful breezes lulled us to sleep. I will definitely return! Mahalo

great stay for a great vacation!

by Tiana on 05/29/2018
This was my third visit to the Big Island and I couldn’t have been happier! The condo was amazing! The time we had was great! If we come back, we want to book with you again!

Great condo with a great view!

by Jennifer on 05/29/2018
What a great place to stay! The condo had all we needed and more. We spent time every day on the lounge chairs by the water, and several days at the pool. We used the bbq one night and it was great. Our own parking spot and AC was very nice too! Kona and west Hawaii is beautiful and we will be back!

Very Clean and great location

by Lynn on 05/28/2018
The condo was very clean and ready for out stay. Condo was well maintained and nicely updated. David was fabulous with everything from booking activities to making sure everything in the condo was what we needed. The king size bed was very comfortable and the central AC was great to have. Some nights we kept the windows in the bedroom open to go to sleep to the sound of the waves, but when it was a little warm we ran the AC which worked great. We snorkeled with the dolphins, saw the Manta's at night and did a fishing trip and a helicopter ride, all of which David did a spectacular job arranging. My only constructive criticism would be to let people know there is a closet behind the front door that has a laundry basket, cleaning supplies and small coolers. We only found this the morning we were heading out. Also high top chairs on the patio would be nice so you can see better over the railing, but that may be a personal preference. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay while visiting Kona.

Wonderful house; Perfect Location

by Tonia on 05/28/2018
This house is perfect for three couples or a family. We stayed with our two adult children and their spouses. The upstairs living area is fantastic! The kitchen is large, very clean and well equipped. A large kitchen island makes it easy to prepare meals for a group. The very comfortable living area opens fully (with disappearing windows/walls to the large balcony lanai making the entire living area flow to the outside. We loved that. There is a large dining table on the lanai and comfortable patio furniture. What a relaxing setting to enjoy family, meals and scenery. Overall the house is very clean and well kept. (We've stayed at 12-15 VRBO homes in various locations throughout the years and this one rates in the top two). The people at the management company (Kona Coast Vacations) are great - friendly and helpful. They left a basket of Hawaiian goodies upon our arrival. They booked an activity for us, checked in after the first day to be sure everything was OK, and delivered clean beach towels when we couldn't figure out how to work the dryer (it was operator error!) The town of Kona is nearby for shopping and restaurants. A few things to be aware of: there is an elevator so you don't have to lug your luggage and groceries up two flights of stairs, although we were challenged a bit with getting it to work properly - but again, the Kona Coast people are a phone call away and very responsive. There is room for two cars to park under the house but it takes two people to get a car out of the driveway - one to drive the car and the other to hold traffic on the road so the driver can back out. The street is a little busy but you don't notice it at all inside the house because the house faces the water. Overall, this is a perfect house in a perfect location.

Very nice property. Staff were friendly & helpful

A little outdated, but very clean and comfortable. Everything you need for an enjoyable vacation.

Exceptional location, very well equipted house

by Christiane on 05/28/2018
Our stay was very enjoyable. The house is extremely well equipped and offers generous space for a comfortable stay. The location is perfect. There is a nice view on the golf course, shops and restaurants are near by. The access to the beach and to the local snorkeling spots are easy and permits are included. Geographically and strategically the house is well positioned. Access to all tourist attractions is no problem and the distances are small. Maintenance and service were excellent. Unfortunately the architects have positioned the ACs of the two neighboring houses with a direct view onto the lanais (ground floor and 1st floor) of the unit. Instead of being able to profit from the exceptional view the noise if the ACs is accompanying you. It is unfortunate, but it does not diminish all the other exceptional qualities of the unit.

The property was very clean and well equipped

by Jane on 05/28/2018
Our experience was top notch. The management company, the couple of times we called, answered the phone each time to personally answer questions. This day and age it is almost unheard of, very impressive. We travel all over the world and stay at this type of accommodations. This unit was definitely the most clean place we've seen in a very long time. Everything we looked for in the kitchen was available, very well equipped. Sitting on the lanai was just heavenly. In the morning sun we could see all the fish swimming around the lava rocks. The property is as represented in the ad. We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice condo and clean

by Lee on 05/26/2018
Very nice, clean and great location.

Gorgeous property

by Paul on 05/25/2018
Aloha Place is a beautifully designed, landscaped and equipped property. We would recommend it to anyone without hesitation. David, the concierge, was great to deal with, and provided information and reservations, whenever we needed.

Kona Bay Estates 23

by Mary on 05/25/2018
Our family enjoyed this beautiful home so much! Every thing about it was perfect, we enjoyed coffee every morning on the Lanai to dinner in the evenings, listening to the ocean and watching the gorgeous sunsets. Thank you for a vacation that we will all never forget.

Amazing Place

by Melody on 05/25/2018
Very nice home, great location less than 2 miles outside downtown Kona. Yard, and pool very well maintained. House spotless. Would definitely stay again.


by Soterios on 05/24/2018
What a beautiful place! We lived waking up and having our coffee on the lanai every morning and then coming back for the spectacular sunsets every night. The condo was great, everything we needed. Thanks for a great trip!

A beautiful room with an amazing view!

by Nancy on 05/23/2018
With only one exception, we were very pleased with the room, the amenities, cleanliness, and the support of Kona Coast Vacations. Our concierge (David) was particularly helpful, both with the room and arranging outside activities. The view from the deck was perfect, with a clear view of the ocean and the constant sound of the waves. The well-equipped kitchen was very convenient when we didn't want to go out, and we were pleased with the condiments, spices, and other incidentals left in the cabinets by previous visitors. The one negative was the inability to control the temperature. The room was sweltering when we arrived, and we were unable to cool it down during our entire stay. We knew in advance there was no air conditioning, but we expected to get flow-through ventilation to at least cool the room at night. We even tried stacking up some chairs and drawers to use as a pedestal to get a floor fan up to the level of the bedroom windows (about 6ft above floor level), but that only helped a little. Neither my husband nor I were able to sleep very well for our 6 nights there. If not for the temperature problem, which was more than a minor inconvenience, we would have given our stay a perfect score (5 stars).

Accurately described in page. Close to Kona Town.

by John on 05/22/2018
Great condo. with minor annoyances. Cooking breakfast on the stove filled the whole place with smoke. Lighting was minimal in the kitchen. AC was loud and ineffective. Bathrooms, laundry and showers were very nice. Lots of towels too. We enjoyed the warm pool.

Good Location!

by Christopher on 05/21/2018
This was a good location and a nice place. We truly enjoyed our time.

Beautiful view, good customer service

by Erik on 05/21/2018
Thought this place was great. Only a 5+ minute walk to a bunch of restaurants and 10 minutes to the heart of Kona. Beautiful view, good customer service, etc. The unit itself isn't super fancy, but it's clean and comfortable. The pool area is pretty good as well, and was never busy when we were there.

Great location close to the highways and gas station, very spacious and clean condo

by Cynthia on 05/21/2018
We had a good stay at this condo- great layout, fully equipped and very clean! They provided an extensive information pack with lists of great beaches, tips etc. and printed instructions on all the remote controls for the condo. Excellent location with a gas station and shopping centre right across the road. Only down side was the ongoing site works and the workers. When we first drove into the parking lot we had found that our designated parking bay was occupied by a worker. We asked if he could park elsewhere as we were checking in but he was very rude and did not want to move it. He very reluctantly did so in the end- it wasn't the welcome we were hoping for. We had workers refurbishing a couple of condos which made it very noisy in the mornings, with work starting at 8- drilling, hammering, loud music. And the gardener blowing grass and leaves right next to me by the pool as I was taking a phone call, I moved and he continued to blow dirt on my laptop... Such a shame that the impolite and inconsiderate workers affected my experience with Kona Coast Vacations! I'm sure the works will be done soon, other than that, great location close to the highways and gas station, very spacious and clean condo, OH! and a beautiful pool area!!


by Trudy on 05/21/2018
The view was great from the lanai!!

Kona Isle C35

by Lynne on 05/21/2018
We had the absolute best time. The condo we stayed in was more than I ever expected. It had anything and everything you needed it was absolutely the best. Word of mouth is everything and I’ve already given two strangers the link with exactly where we stayed. We will stay in this condo every time we come to Kona. Thank you so much

Outstanding from Beginning to End

by Lindsey on 05/21/2018
This property’s spectacular views, unique, vibrant landscaping and clean, spacious rooms provided the perfect setting for a wonderful family vacation. Relaxing in the hot tub and using the outdoor shower were highlights and the location was perfect for watching the beautiful Hawaii sunsets. It was truly outstanding in every way. Date of Stay: 5/1/18 to 5/11/18

Absolutely perfect and very private

by Michael on 05/21/2018
The pictures and description are right on. I would not think twice about returning to this house for a few more weeks of relaxation. Close enough for quick access to town, but just far enough away for peace and tranquility. The privacy the back yard provides is perfect, the pool and hot tub great, the view unsurpassed. There is nothing I would change. Do yourself a favor and book this house through Kona Coast Vacations.

We didn't want to ever leave!

by Cindy on 05/18/2018
You can't beat the view! We love being right on the ocean and falling asleep listening to the sound of the waves. The unit is stocked with everything you need to for the beach- sunscreen, beach mats, umbrella and is located a just few minutes drive from downtown Kona. We didn't want to ever leave!

If you're an adult couple looking for a quiet, super clean place, it's fantastic!

by Sarah on 05/18/2018
A great condo with a well stocked kitchen and lanai perfect for lounging. I have a hard time finding a bed firm enough for my back so the master bedroom was heavenly for me. The complex is quiet (which we loved) and just up the way from the Sheraton and Keauhou Bay where you can watch the boats come in and out, or charter one to swim with the manta rays. We loved being off the beaten path of Kona so this place was nearly perfect for us.

Thank you, we shall return!

by Jann on 05/18/2018
Great location at the very end of Ali'i drive....gated community with good pool area and a quiet atmosphere. KTA market just up the road for snacks and groceries.... along with some restaurants and shops. Condo is fantastically outfitted kitchen wise.. we mostly cooked in due to dietary needs and the abundance of fresh fruits and produce... the space is very comfortable. Bedrooms are booth up a short flight of stairs along with a full bathroom including a tub. One bath with a walk-in shower is downstairs.. nice lanai with resident geckos to watch! Short stroll down to the shoreline to watch the sunset.. no access to a beach, but that's not a big deal for us, as we like to explore the lovely beaches here. FYI , air conditioning costs $25 a day extra..and must be paid for for the entire time after it's activated. This was a first for me...& this is my 15+ trip to Kona. I understand that electricity is expensive and perhaps this is a new thing. We skipped it and just ran the fans.. only time it was problematic was sleeping...& really only two nights. All in all I give this place a thumbs up!!

Pictures don't do it justice! Beautiful!

by Tara on 05/18/2018
It was a very nice, very comfortable place to stay! Super convenient to the marketplace and a great location for the resort and private beach club! The pictures do not do the house justice, it is beautiful!

Very clean, comfortable and well stocked.....its pretty perfect as is

by Elizabeth on 05/18/2018
This condo is kind of tucked away - a bit out of Kona, but has great amenities. Very clean, comfortable and well stocked. The lania has a view of the ocean. Maybe it was the time of year, but I was almost the only person using the pools and facilities and it was very quiet and peaceful. Very nice tidepools to look at from the salt water pool area. The salt water pool is awesome - but apparently they will be doing construction on it soon for a few months. I hope they don't change it too much - its pretty perfect as is.

I want to stay here again. Super rental!

by Rose on 05/18/2018
I cannot begin to say enough positive things about the stay at this condo. It was off the charts awesome. The condo is right on Ali'i drive so you are in the heart of Kona. Go right and you can walk to lots of shops, go left and there are so many restaurants to choose from. Absolutely great location. And the views! Being on the 7th floor was great. We have 3 photographers in our group and made the most out of being in this location. Stunning sunsets and views all week. Cannot get too much better than this location. Now let's talk about the condo. Having two masters with private bathrooms was great. The home is beautifully decorated. The furniture is so comfortable. The addition of Apple tv and the awesome sound system was great. The kitchen was so well stocked with everything we needed to make breakfast and some dinners in was great. We even loved the toaster! Lots of towels. The A/C was great and kept us cool but we often shut it off and had the large sliding doors open for those great breezes and to hear the ocean. And the beds were so very comfy. Oh, and the waterfall shower upstairs was so relaxing. We had a couple of issues that were resolved the same day. The Kona Coast staff was incredibly accommodating and fixed everything within a couple hours. When we come back to Kona, I want to stay here again. Super rental. Mahalo for an awesome trip.

Clean, nice decorations

by Dan on 05/18/2018
This distant ocean view condo was very nice. It was clean with nice decorations. Check in was easy with no need to go anywhere but to the condo. The golf course results in a little noise, but the nice lawns and views make up for it just fine. I found that they play pickleball on most days right across the street. I had brought my paddle and had a great time with the local players.

Wonderful place, as advertised!

by Marc on 05/18/2018
The condo is as advertised. I went solo, quiet location, safe area, close to Kona (a little far for me to walk but ample parking at Kona), nice pool etc...., the kitchen had everything, great ocean front view, no sand beach but sand beaches close by, nice natural volcanic rocks with lots of ocean wave action. Wonderful place, I "will" stay there again.....

Great location, well maintained

by Michelle on 05/18/2018
We had a great stay at the condo. The property is well maintained and in a great location. The place was very lovely and the 3 balconies were great for enjoying coffee in the morning and a drink in the afternoon. The bathrooms are dated, but they were clean. (Pictures are accurate.)

Thanks, everything was as advertised. We had a great time!

by Vincent on 05/18/2018
This was the perfect spot for our young kids. They loved swimming in the pool everyday and there is a beach a short walk away with tide pools to explore. This is a great jumping off point to explore the entire island, we really enjoyed our week in Kona!

Clean, well appointed, directly on the ocean

by Marilyn on 05/18/2018
This unit in Kona was clean, well appointed, directly on the ocean, and comfortable. Kona Coast Vacations was a pleasure to work with , communication was excellent and they were always willing to assist in any way, Their best interest was making sure we enjoyed our stay!

Great location, nice amenities.

by Rebecca on 05/18/2018
Great location, nice amenities.

Beyond Expectations!

by Karolyn on 05/18/2018
The condo was so beautiful, it was beyond expectations. The location is convenient to beaches, stores and the views are lovely. Kona Coast does a beautiful job of management and I would highly recommend this condo.Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Great for family!

by Dragana on 05/18/2018
This is a lovely condo, great for a family. We had a restful stay.

Excellent Property! Love it, WE'LL BE BACK!

by Greg on 05/18/2018
This is an incredible home/condo. Any family would be happy here, or even a 'couples' vacation. We will definitely be back to this property in the future. Extremely nice, well maintained, clean and updated. You pretty much have 3 huge master bedrooms and an amazing living space. This property is close to the beach with great access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club. Only negative was that the community pool was closed during the month of May. This was a surprise to us, but the owner was very gracious in working it out for us. The pool area looks amazing, and I'm sure when it re-opens it will take this property from 5-Stars to 6..! (If only we could give it 6.) This was our first big family vacation to Hawaii and this property really helped make it special for us.

Beautiful condo. Best views.

by Anonymous on 05/17/2018
My wife and I rented this condo for 12 days in April and May. This is a very nice, clean, updated condo. The photos are accurate. It has the best ocean, city and mountain views of any condo in the complex. Several neighbors stated they wished they had our views. The most comfortable bed we've ever slept in. Plenty of parking. Some extras we didn't know about but were glad to have them: 3 portable fans, 4 beach towels, 2 folding chairs for the beach, beach umbrella, snorkel masks and snorkels, and tennis rackets. Our only real complaint is the condo was very hot in the afternoon and evenings. For some reason, there was no ocean breeze to cool the room. We closed the doors and windows and ran the bedroom air conditioner at night. The pool is nice but there were lots of kids when we were there. 2 hours of Marco - Polo can get old. Also, I missed the fact that there is no elevator and this is a third floor condo. Not that big of deal, but it may matter to some people. Kona Coast Vacations did a nice job communicating with us. Easy rental process. All in all, we would stay there again.


by Rebecca on 05/15/2018
This was a fabulous place to stay!!! It was clean and well stocked with the essentials. It is an upscale property with nice furnishings and a fantastic pool. We had 6 people there and never felt like we were on top of each other. The patio is huge and very comfortable. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, but close to the action. Would definitely stay again!

Luxurious get away

by Inga on 05/14/2018
This home was absolutely delightful. Just gorgeous and the view was amazing for nightly sunsets. It had all the amenities one could need, including beach chairs and towels for the lovely beaches close by. One would actually have no need to leave the property other than reloading for food. There was plenty of room for all age groups with many areas to hangout in. Large home yet very comfortable homey feel Hawaiian style. Loved it. Thank You for a wonderful time as well as being professional from the beginning thru the end.... Mahalo

Excellent Stay

by Michelle on 05/14/2018
We had an excellent stay. This condo was perfect for two couples. Exceptionally clean and had everything you could ever need: fully stocked kitchen -- nice pots & pans, kettle, rice cooker, blender, tupperware, spices, you name it (no sugar for obvious reasons) -- clean linens, beach supplies -- towels, chairs, boogie boards, cooler (only thing missing is an umbrella), extra linens, hangers, board games, and cards. The in-suite laundry was so useful and the condo's shared bbqs were great. We met such nice people while bbqing our supper. 🙂 Sitting on the balcony with our morning coffee watching the pods of dolphins was a highlight! The condo complex is a bit older but well maintained. Parking was never an issue. The location is fantastic! Just a quick 5 minute walk north and you're at the start of the main drag. Huggos is a must and it's so close! Magic Sands beach is a 6 min drive south. Beautiful sand and some decent waves. A/C works well in the main room but doesn't reach the back bedroom. There are plenty of fans so you can position them a certain way to help circulate the air. First few nights were warm but once we acclimatized to the Hawaiian air it was no problem at all. This place is worth every penny and I will certainly recommend it to friends and family.


by Dennis on 05/14/2018
Fantastic. Loved the location. Perfect for all explorations on the island. Lovely spot on the water. Didn't do any swimming here but looked like a great surf spot. The unit was great. Very clean and ample supplies including a few unexpected extras. The wifi didn't work for the unit but we had access to a different wifi network so overall no issue.

Lovely spot on the water.

Excellent Property

by Mark on 05/13/2018
We did a lot of searching for a Condo in the general Kona area. We kept coming back to this unit and made our decision. We are so happy we did. The pictures are an accurate representation of the property, if fact it's nicer than shown. Perfect location right on the water for a beautiful view and the sound of the waves. We only experienced one maintenance issue (minor in nature). In the master bath the dual power switch for the overhead fan and it's light did not work. We reported this but it did not get fixed before we checked out. Other than that, everything else was wonderful. We plan on coming back in the future. Highly recommended.
Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback about your recent stay. We are sorry that we weren't able to make the repair during your stay; however, it has since been fixed.
It was a pleasure to welcome you as our guest, and we’re elated that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us.   We look forward to welcoming you back!
Kona Coast Vacations

I would definitely stay again at this location.

by Zack on 05/12/2018
Everything about this place was amazing. My girlfriend and I would definitely return and stay here again!


by Kelly on 05/12/2018
We had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful. There is nothing like sitting on the lanai having freshly ground Kona coffee & watching a beautiful sunrise. Paradise !!!!

Loved our stay here.

by Magen on 05/11/2018
Perfect for family being on the 2nd floor and not having to worry about creating noise for anyone below with kids running. Walk to great snorkeling across the street and Kona only 15 minutes away. The house was clean, no one bothered us and comfortable. Would love to come back and stay again 🙂

Would definitely stay again!

by Dan on 05/11/2018
The location/view (across from the beach) is superb and the on-site pool and hot tub were great. The condo itself was really beautiful as well. Would definitely stay again!

Just a delightful place

by Kevin on 05/11/2018
Would definitely come back. Just a delightful place. Close to town. Wonderful views. Relaxing. Would certainly recommend.

Thank you for amazing hospitality! We'll definitely be back

by Anna on 05/11/2018
We had an absolutely amazing stay here! To mention just a few things that made it special: 1) location: 3 min walk to the beach, 3 min walk to the surf shop, 10-15 min drive to Kona, 2) atmosphere: smell of flowers that you start to forget after living in the city for too long, birds singing day and night, view of the ocean, sound of the waves that you can hear when falling asleep, 3) amenities: spacious living room, comfortable bedrooms, super clean bathrooms with nice towels, everything was working in the kitchen and we didn't miss a thing like utensils for grilling. Spacious deck with the ocean view made mornings so special and evening hangouts (with seafood freshly grilled right there on the deck:) unforgettable. Our towels didn't dry one night since it's pretty humid in Hawaii, and the beach towels in the apartment came in very handy. Thank you, Kona Coast Vacations team! We'll definitely be back!

Great place, spacious, ocean view.

by Wang on 05/11/2018
Great place, spacious, ocean view. They don't have air conditioning, it's ok for us in May since it's not too hot and we are out most of the daytime

Clean space and great location.

by Tanner on 05/11/2018
Would certainly stay here again when visiting the island

The condo was better than the pictures. Great location, very clean and huge!

by Peter on 05/11/2018
The condo was better than the pictures. Great location, very clean and huge! 2 big bedrooms and AC in each room. You are facing the ocean with only the pool between you and the waves. Very quiet and beautiful place. We would love to stay again.

Good value, great view!

by Mark on 05/11/2018
Spectacular view of the coast from this unit. Good value for a stay along the Kona coast.

Beautiful property with all the bells and whistles

by Sachin on 05/11/2018
Our family of 4 (including 2 kids aged 3 and 1) stayed here for a week and had the best time. This place has everything going for it - fantastic views from pretty much every room in the house, all kinds of beach equipment (mats, chairs, snorkel stuff, life vests) to make going to the beach a much more enjoyable experience, tons of fantastic books to read if you decide to lounge around in the expansive Lanai and a fantastic kitchen that is well equipped. You truly feel like you are in a home and not just a vacation rental. The Home: Very well maintained home that was clean and easy to navigate. All switches are labeled (how great is that?) so you are not spending time hunting around trying to figure things out. There's lots of art around the house including sculptures, paintings etc. which makes you feel like you are surrounded by beauty both inside and outside. Our favorites were the 3D map of big island at the entryway, the Japanese bell at entrance, the sculptures in the Lanai among a few. The owners have also thought about the small details like leaving a pair of binoculars that let us observe a pod of Dolphins from the Lanai to truly amp up our experience. Customer service; The A/C in one of the units had broken just a day or so before we arrived and the customer service was excellent. We called up the manager and they immediately sent someone over with fans because it would take a while to fix the A/C. The property managers were always available to answer our questions (like where to put trash etc.). Attractions: Ali'i point 12 is at a great location for activities. The downtown area is a short drive away so we could go every evening to take a walk and hang out. The Marketplace with some interesting finds is right outside this place so it's good to wander there if you're not in the mood to go to the beach. And a TON of the most beautiful. sandy beaches are just a short drive away. Our favorite beaches were Kapaluu'u beach for snorkeling, white sands beach for boogie boarding, Mauna Kea and Kua bay for crystal clear gentler waters and so many more! We wanted to go to Volcanoes national park but it was unsafe due to eruptions and earthquakes. Ali'i point 12 is on the far side of the island from the volcano so we always felt safe. Throughout our stay, we truly felt that like Ali'i point 12 was our home and not just a vacation rental! I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to have a stress free vacation.

Great price, especially with AC

by Melissa on 05/11/2018
Lovely property, ocean views, lots of useful amenities, great customer service. Very helpful and user friendly process.

Amazing house for a perfect vacation!

by Brooke on 05/09/2018
When you see a rental that looks as amazing as the Ailina house - you may not believe that it is as good in person. However it was WAY better than we could have imagined! We were a group of 4 and this house was the perfect cornerstone for our adventures on the big island. You could easily stay by the picturesque pool all day - with adorable gold dust geckos hanging out nearby it kept all of us entertained with our morning coffee. The sunsets over the pool are also dazzling. We chose to make two day trips to Hilo during our stay, 1 for a day of waterfalls and the other for Volcano National Park. The drive was about 1.5 hour each way and it was worth it. There were also tons of activities nearby, like the Kona brewing company, magic sands beach, a site that offered night manta snorkeling! As if the trip wasn’t amazing enough, we have to give a special Mahalo to Laurie with Kona Coastal Vacations! One of my friends left her phone at the house and Laurie went above and beyond to return it to us as quickly as possible! We will definitely be back to the Big Island again and return to the Ailina house!

Beautiful Place!

by Tammy on 05/08/2018
The condo was Great! Well stocked kitchen, snorkel equipment, beach chairs and umbrella.....so much more! It is in a great location and the view from the Lanai was wonderful! Very comfortable! My only downside would be that there was a few gaps (openings) in the blinds in the Master. This caused privacy issues when people were out on the Lanai and we were sleeping in or getting dressed! Also the railing upstairs along the windows is Very Loose! We had to rearrange sleeping and have our younger Granddaughter sleep with her parents due to the safety issue. I noticed another reviewer had complained months ago regarding this and we thought it would have been repaired.....it was not! I really hope that this is repaired before someone gets hurt! But overall we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the space! It would have given 5 stars if the railing was repaired! It is close enough to the busy town area....close to Captain Cook and to many beaches. We had such a wonderful vacation and were able to show our family and friends why we LOVE the Big Island so much! Mahalo!!

Comfortable and well eqipped

by Wayne on 05/08/2018
This is the second time that my wife and I have stayed in unit 212 . It is a home away from home with everything that we could possibly need! The balcony looks out on a little "Garden Of Eden" and you get a side view of the ocean! We loved their large salt water pool,and b.b.g. area were they light the tiki torches every evening at sunset. They also have a nice fresh water pool very close to our unit. We liked the local because we were far enough away from the "hubbub" and yet only a 5 minute drive to downtown Kona. We look forward to our next visit

Great condo to explore the big island!

by Brock on 05/08/2018
CHECK-IN Kona Coast Vacations was excellent in providing directions on how to get to the property from the airport and how to get into the property. The condo was very clean upon arrival. PROPERTY CONDITION: The beds were all very comfortable. All of the appliances worked. The thermostats were locked so you could not put the temperature below 74 degrees. The breaker to the outside fridge was taped down so the fridge would not operate. They had all the kitchen utensils that you would need. BBQ on the deck worked well (igniter was not working, but they had a manual lighter there for you to light it). There was lots of toilet paper, garbage bags, dishwasher and kitchen soap provided. There were some spices as well. No cooking oils or any other perishable items. The coffee pot was a standard 12 cup maker with a reusable filter. No single serve coffee maker. The internet in the condo was quite good. It was a bit congested first thing in the morning and in the evening (when I'm sure other people in the complex were using it), but overall it was better than what I've experienced in other rentals. The handheld vacuum did not work (battery would not charge). The main vacuum did not work well (at the end of its lifespan!). It would overheat after using it for 5 minutes and would shut off. AMENITIES: The condo pool was great for the kids. It had a nice fitness center. The complex is very close to a small grocery store and a few restaurants. It would not be an easy walk to the beach club -- it is about a 5 minute drive. The private beach club was great. The condo provided a beach umbrella, beach cooler, two small boogie boards (for kids under 6), 2 beach mats. There was some snorkel gear (some of it was in need of repair/replacement). There were no beach chairs (Tommy Bahama style that are common in most vacation rentals in Hawaii). AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT: We did encounter quite a few pests in the condo. We found three cockroaches during the day (one in the upstairs bedroom closet, one in the laundry room, and one in the living room area). There was also a small ant infestation around the kitchen sink and in the one main floor bathroom. They had a lot of ant traps/killer under the kitchen sink and in the pantry, so I suspect its a long-standing problem. There were also a few baby geckos that we found in various places in the condo that we re-located outside. DEPARTURE Amy from Kona Coast vacations was extremely helpful in sending us an item we forgot.

What a great time!!!!

Beautiful vacation home

by Scott on 05/08/2018
We had an excellent stay at sea village #1101...the location was excellent..the views were spectacular. It had all the amenities. We were extremely pleased and are looking forward to booking this place again.

My third stay in this beautiful home.

by Stephanie on 05/07/2018
This home is amazing and we especially enjoyed the pool. I brought my own pool skimmer because there were usually a lot of bugs in the pool. The Polaris vacuum was not as robust as before. The teather does not float anymore and it would get tangled up and didn't clean the corners or climb the stairs. The house is well maintained and the kitchen is very well stocked. I was there during the 6.9 earthquake and the house shook and rolled and water sloshed out of the pool, but nothing fell off the walls and there were no cracks or damage. The concierge was helpful for my guests. We love the location. The view is the best.

Would return without hesitation.

by William on 05/06/2018
This is a pleasant little unit in an older, well-maintained complex. It was thoughtfully stocked with everything we could possibly need as far as the kitchen, towels, bedding, cleaning supplies, board games etc. (Almost comically so- we didn't get the chance to make waffles or roast a turkey but we could have!) Nice cross-draft during the day (plus ample ceiling fans) and AC to cool it down at night. Pretty ocean view from the patio, which we enjoyed taking our meals on. Unit was clean and in good shape, nothing fancy but an excellent value for the price. Location is great, central Kona location but just outside of the main Alii drive craziness. Our hosts were communicative, we had all the info we needed, and check-in was a breeze. The complex seemed really well looked-after. They were painting one wing while we were there, plus there was landscaping going on, so it got a little noisy during the day, but, well, that's stuff that needs to get done. Work was done at reasonable hours. Pool was pretty small but looked pristine. Nice shoreline area for relaxation. All in all: value, comfort, location, amenities! Would return without hesitation.

Thanks for the stay, it was awesome to have the beach right at the front door!

by Jenna on 05/06/2018
This place is a great value. Very close to the restaurants and shops of Kona, and a short drive from Captain Cook, another cool spot to check out. Loved having the beach waves right out the front door. The only (small) complaint I had was that the shower head was in need of cleaning from some mold (understandable in the Hawaii humidity) but other than that the place was great and would highly recommend!

It has everything one needs for a perfect vacation.

by Ambuj on 05/06/2018
Beautiful unit over looking the golf course and ocean views. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. It has everything one needs for a perfect vacation. Furniture, bed and kitchen all are of good quality. Will stay here again if visiting Kona again.Thank for a great stay. Appreciate the details you had sent in the email about the directions and check-in. The place was sparkling clean.

Thanks for being a great host.

by Mary Jo on 05/06/2018
We loved the location. We spent much of our time sitting on the lanai watching dolphins and sunsets. Beautifully equipped kitchen. Helpful concierge.

Gorgeous Kona Condo

by Jennifer on 05/06/2018
Love, Love, Love this place. I highly recommend staying here. What impressed me the most was the ocean view from the lanai. I spent most of my afternoons drinking margaritas and watching the breathtaking sunsets. It's a super clean condo with a really nice spacious kitchen. I enjoy cooking so that was very important for me to find a vacation condo with all the amenities I have at home. It was a pure delight staying here...can't wait to book my next trip.

Oceanside rentals

by George on 05/06/2018
Clean and well furnished, all needed cooking utensils avilable.


by Cheryl on 05/05/2018
We stayed in this condo for 4 amazing weeks. The unit has an amazing location and is absolutely stunning. The Lanai is huge and the view of the sunsets every night was breathtaking. Dolphins were also out front everyday and the snorkeling is good there as well. The only issue we had was with the tv. We like to watch the news and found that often the channels weren't available. We highly recommend this unit.

Fantastic place. Wonderful!!! Very clean!

by Fred on 05/05/2018
Great place right on the golf course. I have stayed in many places in the village...this is the cleanest and most comfy yet. Location???? The Village 800 feet above the resorts is soooooo nice. Much cooler and less humid. Pool here is nice with no crowds. 15 minutes from Hapuna, Beach 69 and Mauna Kea (just ask for a pass). Do not hesitate to book this place.


by Anonyous on 05/04/2018
Exceeded expectations. Steps away from some of the best shore accessible snorkeling on the island. Elevator to transport luggage and people was a major perk. Beautiful decks and views all accompanied by the peaceful sounds of the surf.

Lovely Condo

by Sylvia on 05/03/2018
It was a lovely condo, we had a great time. As it was our 3rd visit to the Big Island we basically stayed in the Kohala area (one day trip to Captain Cook area). We would recommend 2404 Waikola Colony Villas.

Everything worked out just great!

by Gordon on 05/02/2018
Everything worked out just great. We had one issue with the second bedroom TV when we first arrived. However, after an email was sent to Kona Coast Vacations, they sent someone within two hours to rectify the matter. I would recommend them in future and would also use their services again. Thank You!

Awesome Property!!! Can't wait to go back!!!

by Jade on 05/01/2018
My first visit to Kona for extended stay . Property was amazing. Listing is 100% accurate and was very clean and well maintained. Easy to get to from airport and a great location. There were six of us and didn't feel crowded or lacking in privacy. Highly recommend this property. What a great value. We took morning walks; choice of beaches within 10-15 minutes. Golf right out the back door on ninth hole. Great grocery store 2 minutes away. Lanai was the best for evenings of relaxation and great card games. Love love loved it and will visit again!!! Cannot say enough.

Keauhou bay is special!

by Ken on 05/01/2018
Great location. Very clean and with a great lanai!


by Ren on 05/01/2018
I’ve stayed here every year for 5 years. Each time it’s been a lovely update to the condo. The ease to the beaches and snorkeling are amazing. Access to the swimming pools , golf course, and jacuzzis are unparalleled. For a FABULOUS 6-girl gathering or small family, this is IT.

The Hawaiin Honu House was superior in every way

by Gene on 05/01/2018
What can I say? Everything was perfect! The home was clean, classy and extremely well appointed with everything we needed to relax. We did cook several meals at the house and found everything we needed. The home owners should be commended for providing a truly superior experience. Kona Coast Vacations, the rental management company, was THE MOST PROFESSIONAL management company I have ever worked with.

Beautiful view from Lanai

by Troy on 05/01/2018
My mother and I had a fantastic time in this beautiful condo. It was well stocked and very clean. I only had one minor issue with the sliding glass door getting stuck but someone came and fixed it right away. Having 2 bathrooms and the Murphy bed made the one bedroom seem like a 2 bedroom. We would stay here again thank you so much.

Fabulous condo

by Jeff on 05/01/2018
Just as pictures show, beautiful view right on water, see and hear the waves all day and night. Unit has all you need, including beach umbrella, few beach chairs and some boogie boards. Kona concierge was great and easy to work with.

Pleasant stay at Waikoloa colony villas 303

by Genevieve on 04/30/2018
Nice and huge townhome in Waikoloa colony villas, close to the pool and BBQ's and everything we needed was there. Perfect for a family of four and well maintained for a reasonnable price for the area. The 2 pools are beautiful and clean. We really appreciate to find a boogie board, beach toys and a cooler. We also appreciate the help of David, we could ask him some questions and he answered and helped us quickly. Thank you.

Perfect! Clean, comfortable and great location.

by Betty on 04/29/2018
Wonderful stay!

Great Location and Amazing View

by Kristy on 04/29/2018
My husband and I were very pleased with our stay at Kona Reef A6. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai every morning and you can't ask for a better place to enjoy the sunset. The condo was stocked with any dishes and furniture we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the bedroom was quiet. I was a bit concerned about the privacy as A6 is on the lower level. There was some foot traffic on the lawn, but nothing of concern. It was very convenient to be able to access the lawn and nearby beach without having to take stairs. Kona Reef was a very quiet and clean property. The condo was very convenient to downtown Kona and we were able to easily and safely walk to restaurants and check out the sites. We traveled all over the island during our stay and Kona Reef A6 was a perfect home base for our time on the Big Island.

We could not have asked for a better place

by Tami on 04/28/2018
What an amazing place! Very spacious, clean and convenient location. The pools were wonderful! We were very well taken care of both by the owners and by Kona Coast. They checked in on us to make sure we had what we needed. Very lovely time! Mahalo!

I will recommend this property and location to all of my friends/ family

by Whitney on 04/28/2018
I would rate this accommodation 11/10. The communication from this rental was excellent! They provided us with easy directions to follow from the airport, and even allowed us early access into the property. We absolutely loved the proximity as well. We were able to quickly grab ubers into town for dinner and drinks, or enjoy a relaxing drive down the coast to Captain Cook. This rental is close to all of the popular destinations, but still a little out of the way for a peaceful night. Grabbing a poke bowl or plate from Da Poke Shack and taking it to your room to enjoy the view or beach is a MUST! This unit has amazing views of the ocean. You'll enjoy falling asleep to the sound of the waves and waking up to some of the most spectacular sunrises.

The home is gorgeous, with a great pool and garden.

by Joanne on 04/28/2018
We just spent a wonderful week at this amazing home. This was our first trip to Hawaii for a family holiday. Kona Coast vacation rentals were excellent to deal with, very friendly and prompt communication. The home is gorgeous, with a great pool and garden. It is as described, and spotlessly clean and well presented. The bedrooms are large with their own bathrooms, so there is plenty of space and privacy for families. We would definitely recommend this home and Kona Coast vacation rentals. The house is located near to a local shopping centre, but you will need a car to explore the island. We appreciated our welcome hamper too, thank you.

Clean, good size, across from White Sands Beach

by Sue on 04/28/2018
I appreciated being right across from White Sands Beach and the pool was nice. The condo itself was clean and the living area a good size. Even though it's not listed, there was a hair dryer and shampoo was provided. Water pressure was great and I was thankful for the AC. The photos were accurate -- while comfortable, the place is dated and could use a sprucing. Overall, my friends and I enjoyed our stay.

Thank you for your hospitality.

by Kayleigh on 04/28/2018
Great location in Kona. Amenities were great and space was accommodating.

Fabulous property

by Linda on 04/28/2018
This gorgeous home is by far the best property we have ever rented. It is well-stocked, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and has a great floor plan for two couples. Everything is in immaculate condition, including the lovely pool. We highly recommend this home for your stay in Kona.

Brilliant hospitality, comfortable apartment with all the amenities one could want.

by Elena on 04/28/2018
Excellent apartment and amenities with brilliant communication. Highly recommended.
Nice quiet location far from the super touristy centre and close to supermarket

We would reccommend this property!

by Susan on 04/27/2018
We loved the location. Condo was clean and well kept and would reccommend this property. We had no need to need the manager but the property was very well maintained.

Overall it was a nice, clean condo unit.

by Theodore on 04/27/2018
Condo worked good for us. Very close to everything in Kona. We walked from the condo to the waterfront area where there are lots of restaurants. The condo was as advertised and had everything needed for our stay. It is a middle unit, so it is a little dark inside. The only thing that did not work was the fan out on the lanai. That would have been nice to have on the warm, humid days. Looks like it needs a complete replacement on the fan. A/C worked good, but as a note to the owners - putting your units under the counter/bamboo on the lanai is killing the units ability to move the air and will eventually cause a premature failure of the unit. This coming from the HVAC guy with our group. He is one of the largest installers of Daikins in the US. Pool was nice and hot tub was hot. BBQ area looked nice. We did not use it but several others were cooking out there. There is plenty of parking. We would stay here again.

Fabulous rental accommodation...views amazing!

by Colin on 04/27/2018
Great accommodation and location. We couldn't seem to get the spa bath to work in the master suite but not a big issue as everything else was perfect...would recommend this accommodation to any keen on a stay on The Big Island!
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.   
Thank you for letting us know about the spa bath & we will have it attended to.  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.

Fantastic Value

by Janet on 04/26/2018
The condo with large sized, fully equipped, and ocean front - what else could one ask for. Close to town, has a pool and hot tub near by. Very nice. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful house and a wonderful space!

by Jennifer on 04/26/2018
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The house was beautiful, clean and well stocked. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The views and sunsets were gorgeous. Our group enjoyed exploring the Big Island, a couple did an ATV tour, lots of snorkeling, the Manta Rays were amazing, a day at the Volcano, and of course the beaches! We would definitely recommend this property!

LOVE Love this place..

by Janet on 04/25/2018
A home away from home with a much better view! From the private Lanai you look out onto the 9th hole of the golf course with the beautiful pacific in the back ground that gives you those magnificent sunsets. Well kept landscaping, pools, Jacuzzi and wild turkeys that wonder at times to say hello to you in the mornings. The condo is nicely decorated with comfy furniture ,beds and all the amenities you need in the kitchen. Grocery store and shopping close by. The beach is just a 10 minute drive. Its a lovely quiet community and I cant wait to go back and stay here again. I would recommend this place to all my family and friends ! We had a fabulous time.

Beautiful property in convenient location!

by Glen on 04/25/2018
Lovely townhouse style that was a perfect fit for our group. They provided all of the essentials including a well stocked kitchen with Tupperware, not frequently found in our stays at condominiums. Gorgeous master suite and lovely outdoor kitchen on one of the lanais. We grilled most nights! When you wanted to go out, the shops are a stones throw away.

Great property in a great position

by Tamsin on 04/25/2018
We loved our stay at Kona Reef. As a family of four, we like our space, and there was plenty! The apartment was well equipped and perfectly clean, and very comfortable, with everything we needed for a self catered holiday. The sea view was fantastic (and perfectly positioned for the stunning sunsets), and we really appreciated also being able to see down to the pool as well. It never got busy, but it was nice to see when other kids were around to go and play with. The kids spent a large amount of time at the lovely pool, which was always clean, and really convenient with bbqs and a hot tub. We enjoyed being able to walk down to shops etc. And the best beginner’s snorkelling (thanks for the tip David!) was just 10 mins drive away. We would return to this complex, and specifically this apartment, in a heart beat. Mahalo!

This home is amazing, a place everyone should visit

by Brian on 04/24/2018
We had an amazing vacation, with a house that was second to none. If you are looking for a home to relax in and enjoy the pool this is the house to do it in!

A comfortable place to relax

by Ruben on 04/24/2018
Kona is very humid so I was initially disappointed to learn that the coolest setting on the central air conditioner for this unit was for 74 degrees F (23 degrees C). But actually the system was very efficient at dehumidifying the entire unit, which made the 74 degrees quite comfortable. There were ceiling fans in every room which also helped greatly with cooling. The secure Wi-Fi was fast enough to stream videos. The complex provides a coin-op laundry. The instruction booklets in the unit implied that laundry detergent was available, but I could not find any. The local convenience stores did not carry detergents for single loads. Fortunately, I found some in Volcano Village (nowhere near Kona). The weather was rainy almost every day, so I did not make use of the available beach equipment. Overall, the unit was clean and well maintained, everything worked fine, and I could not have been more satisfied. I have no qualms recommending a stay here.

Beautiful home overlooking the ocean!

by Sophia on 04/23/2018
This is a beautiful property that overlooks the ocean. We saw whales and beautiful ocean sunsets. This is a short 2 min walk to the Pool Club. The kitchen is fully stocked with so many amenities. I highly recommend this property.

Great Vacation

by Marie on 04/23/2018
We had a great time staying at Colony Villas 303. The place is very clean and nicely decorated. There were lots of beach accessories which we really enjoyed. Had lots of fun boogie boarding! Location is perfect. Close to lots of beaches and activities. Colony Villas is a fairly quiet resort which we liked. Our kids loved the pool. We will definitely come again!

Beautiful property....Outdoor living at it's best!

by Karen on 04/22/2018
We have now found our best place on the Big Island to continue making memories on our generational family vacations. Your property presents island living at it’s best. Your home was so well equipped with quality inventory. As trivial as it sounds, you are the first vacation rental that provided more than 1 roll of paper towels and toilet paper.Thoughtfulness appreciated. We have been and will continue to share your website so that others can enjoy your ohana as much as we did. Thank you! Mark, Rebecca, Clara, Maddie Marty and Karen West Sacramento and Davis, CA

Just perfect!

by Kait on 04/21/2018
What an amazing condo to call out home base for 10 days on the big island. The space was perfect for us (2 adults and 1 child) and could have easily housed another couple and/or more kids. Kitchen is fully stocked and modern, beds super comfortable, everything in tip top shape. The condo comes with the little extras that are such a huge help for a vacation: pool floates, beach towels, cooler bag, chairs, etc. The lanai is huge and the view is even better than the photos! We enjoyed morning coffee and afternoon drinks out there every day and even saw whales breach! Golf course was quiet, mostly seems to be used on weekends and offers entertainment during the mornings on the lanai. 2 easy sets of stairs to get into the unit, easy to manage even with bags and beach gear. Nice breeze through the unit keeps it comfortable even when quite hot and humid outside. Condo is right on the main strip (Alli Dr), but on the quiet end - no road noise and great parking + easy access to both North and South of the island. Right near a great grocery store for your food and liquor, which is next to gas station. Great value here, would definitely stay again!

Loved the condo!

by Michelle on 04/21/2018
We were very impressed with the condo and the complex! It had everything we needed for our stay and more. The bed was really comfortable and the condo is updated and very nice. The complex is beautiful and well maintained. Our stay was everything we had hoped for! Thank you!

Good Stay

by Vincent on 04/19/2018
Good stay, information provided by Kona Rental was very good. We have had no problems encountered. Will use your services again. Thank you.

Our Go To Condo

by Alberta Lavon on 04/19/2018
We always choose this condo for Kona. It was our 5th time to rent it. We are always sure what we are getting with 228, clean, comfortable, well-stocked, and the view is lovely. Sure it's a bit dated, but it is quiet and provides all our needs. Thanks

Beautiful, gated, quiet

by Jerry on 04/19/2018
Start to finish, very nice experience. Beautiful house in a very quiet gated community. Great view of the ocean. Easy access to town and beaches. We had almost perfect weather and the location was central for our excursions. Pool as a little cool at first, but warmed up. Cloudy weather affects the hot water tank, but was easily switched over to electric. The house had everything we needed including umbrellas for the beach.

Nice house...love the lanai!

by Anonymous on 04/19/2018
Perfect size house for 6 adults. Lanai is awesome. Location works for Kona. Kona concierge was very helpful and great bookings for manta rays at night and snorkeling with dolphins in day. Pros.....kitchen well stocked with spices. Lanai and living space large, pool and waterfall, comfortable beds, coolers & lots of beach items available. Great information book on condo and area. A couple things to improve... More beach towels, hot tub was very finicky and lots smaller than picture. We did have to call for service on hot tub. Ice maker not making ice very quickly.

We will definitely stay here again

by Alicia on 04/18/2018
This place is ideal. Easy walk across the street to Kahalu'u Beach park for excellent snorkeling, surfing or body board, and tide pool hunting. This was our 4th stay in Kona and our favorite place so far. Shopping and dining nearby at Keahou. Quick drive to Kailua-Kona for many dining and shopping choices. Includes beach towels, chairs, beach mats, toys, etc. Very clean and spacious condo. Very nice, large outdoor lanai with Fan. We loved everything about this place except the bed - Double foam mattress (not the tempurpedic kind) that was too soft for our liking, not enough support. Good for short stay - 5 nights, not so much. We will definitely stay here again (hopefully new bed by then).

It's great to stay

by Joseph on 04/18/2018
It's great to stay

Conveniently Located!

by Kjell on 04/18/2018
Very conveniently located: many restaurants, Honl's Beach and Kailua Pier in walking distance. Due to the ocean breeze the condo felt surprisingly cool at 84 degrees F daytime highs, even without us running the A/C. We especially liked swimming, snorkeling, kayaking around Kailua Pier. Honl's Beach is closer but rocky and thus was not easy to get in to for our 6 year old. Our 6 year old loved the pool though.

We had a great stay.

by Erin on 04/18/2018
Clean and beautiful. Parking is challenging if you have a large vehicle and can't get it to fit in the spaces provided. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. Very well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds too. We had a great stay.

We could not have asked for a better place.

by Tami on 04/18/2018
What an amazing place! Very spacious, clean and convenient location. The pools were wonderful! We were very well taken care of both by the owners and by Kona Coast. They checked in on us to make sure we had what we needed. Very lovely time! Mahalo!

Nice condo, excellent location. A place to be!

by Daniel on 04/18/2018
First of all we want to say that we had a great time in Kona. The The apartment was clean when we arrived. The location is perfect. The manager does an excellent job. The condo had everything we needed. Towels, sheets, utensils, beach chairs, umbrella and toys were useful and greatly appreciated. However, few things have to be looked at. The kitchen cupboards and the bathroom need renovations. The screen door needs to be fixed or even replaced. We enjoyed our 6 weeks stay at Kona Isle #C32. Mahalo

Excellent Location

by Nilesh on 04/18/2018
Our stay was wonderful and the Villa was better than we expected. The location was excellent, set amongst a golf resort and with easy access to shops and amenities and the beach. The Villa itself was very spacious and well equipped. Thank you for a great stay.

Good place to stay

by Sarah on 04/18/2018
Room was very clean. Instructions were very clear. Location was good.

Beautiful Complex!!

by Joe on 04/18/2018
We thought the condo was just wonderful!The location,all the amenities, everything was perfect. The view is even better than shown in the photos. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We will for sure be back. Aloha and Mahalo

fantastic unit

by Kevin on 04/18/2018
having 3 bedrooms, each with their own updated bath, was the perfect set up. The kitchen was very well equipped, the decor was updated and comfortable. Location was great, next to the pool and an easy walk to the beach area.

Had a great time and cannot beat the location

by David on 04/18/2018
Great location and had no issues with the property. We had (2) families and the layout of the house was perfect for (8) people including (3) adults and (5) kids. Was also great when we had guests for several dinners. Had a few minor issues with the microwave not working but in general the house was clean and well maintained. Was only due to our timing but the pool did get a little dirty due to the heavy rains and is only cleaned once a week. Would highly recommend the property as it was close to town and central to all activities. Had a great time at the local beaches with the kids that were a close drive. Also note that the staff was great and the location is secure and very safe. We will definitely be back in the future.


by Mark on 04/18/2018
Booked this condo just for my wife and I. Not paying attention that it was a 3 bedroom. But that aside, it was awesome. We both had separate bathrooms and an abundance of space. The view from the balcony is spectacular, especially if you catch one of the amazing sunsets. We caught a wahoo when we went sportfishing, and the condo had everything there to cook it up and enjoy it. Three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. I personally wouldn’t want more than 4 people there, but I like my space when on vacation.

Beautiful condo- great location

by Melissa on 04/17/2018
This condo in Kailua Kona is really beautiful with a fantastic view off the front deck. The kitchen has great knives and anything you could want to cook for yourself plus a new washer and dryer. It has two bedrooms each with a private bath so it’s perfect for two couples. There are restaurants and all kinds of activities to sign up for within steps of the building. My group loved the Thai place next door and rented mopeds from Hang Loose to explore snorkel sights. Definitely recommend.

Beautiful Condo, fantastic oceanside view

by Mark on 04/17/2018
The condo was clean, tastefully furnished and an easy drive from the airport. The master bedroom/bathroom has a terrific ocean view and combined with the sound of the waves is a relaxing place to sleep. The other 2 bedrooms are street side consequently they are more suitable for kids vs a second adult couple. The galley style kitchen is functional and well equipped however it is cramped. The lanai is a great place to spend time watching the ocean - the view is amazing. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this condo to others.

Sea Village 2018

by Darrell on 04/16/2018
Our stay at Sea Village 1101 was good. The location is great for visiting Kona. The condo itself is located right beside the pool is convenient but can be a little loud. The condo was clean but could use some updating and several doors were sticking- the downstairs bathroom door would not shut entirely. The management provided good customer service. I would recommend this property especially because of the spectacular views.

Big Island Heaven- Sea Village 4303

by Kyle on 04/16/2018
This is an amazing condo. Very up to date and decorated to perfection.Very well stocked and clean. The location is great and convenient to Kona. Sea Village resort is well manicured and also very clean. Manager provided good communication. I would recommend this condo

Walk across the street to snorkel...

by Ellen on 04/15/2018
Comfortable space and great location. Walk down to the park across the street and jump right in to snorkel! Easy drive to town.

Everything you could need..

by Benjamin on 04/15/2018
Beautiful views, very large and spacious for 2. The place has everything you could possibly need. Walking distance to shops, bars, everything really. Coffee on the large lanai, gazing out over swaying palms into the ocean was a wonderful way to start your day and plan your adventures

Would definitely go back

by Charlotte on 04/15/2018
Great place. BEAUTIFUL SEA VIEW (amazing for the sunset and got to see dolphins too!). Would definitely go back.

Fantastic and Amazing Stay

by Jeff on 04/15/2018
Very well put together condo. Wonderful elegant and traditional Hawaiian décor, beautiful bathrooms for two whole couples to stay (although we only had one) and outfitted with a couple boogie boards, beach towels and all the directions to make our stay great. We stayed our first three nights over at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and then easily transferred over to the Terraces. We went snorkeling, had massages at the Spa, went boogie boarding, rode bikes (from the hotel) can rent in town and went on a hike. This is the 10th time or so we have been to the Big Island so we stayed local. This is by far our favorite unit. We will be back again!

Wonderful clean oceanfront condo

by Daniel on 04/15/2018
We returned here after our first visit last year. This is very well maintained unit in a perfect location next to the best beach in the area. Kona Coast vacations management company has great people working for them. Communication before the trip was very good and they have a nice concierge that can help you line up activities or what to do and places to go on the island. Unit was fresh and nicely cleaned at move in and we saw no bugs or any problem the whole time we were here. This is Hawaii you must keep your counters clean and free of food. Kitchen is nicely equipped with everything you need for cooking your meals here and there is a blender for morning fruit shakes and a storage chest on the balcony with all the beach gear you need including all snorkel equipment boogie boards umbrellas and chairs. We will be back!

Gorgeous house in gorgeous setting

by Carol on 04/13/2018
Our group of six fit beautifully into this three-bedroom home. The gardens were gorgeous, the house was gorgeous, and the sunsets... you get the picture. Everything we needed for our week in Hawaii was available, and everyone had a great time. Before we left, one of our guests was insisting she was going to remodel her kitchen to look just like this one. Thanks for sharing this lovely home.

Really enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend...

by Samantha on 04/12/2018
Our family vacation was very relaxing because of the Waikoloa Colony Villas. The condo (two bedroom) was well maintained and stocked with all the amenities we would need in the kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and beach toys/essentials. The pools were well maintained and conviently located near by with BBQ grills for our grilling pleasure! The workout facility was great for cardio and lifting. Ask for a second pool key if half of your party wants to go to the pool and the other wants to work out. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this location to family and friends.

Clean, comfortable and fantastic view!

by Heather E on 04/12/2018
We found this ‘home’ to be very comfortable and clean and would not hesitate to book it again the next time we visit the island. Would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a place with the feeling of home.

Very clean, exactly as described!

by Jon on 04/11/2018
Great view! Exactly as described. Check in was a breeze. Very clean. Easy walk to restaurants and shops.

Convenient, near the sea!

by Tony on 04/11/2018
The house is right by the sea, the view is very good, and all the facilities of the house are complete. It is very convenient.

We would definitely stay here again!

by Erin And David on 04/11/2018
This condo was exactly as described and a perfect base for our family of five! There was plenty of room and it was well laid out for our needs. We would definitely stay here again!

Well equipped and home feel. Really appreciated it

by Wes on 04/11/2018
Had an excellent experience here. So much nicer and more relaxed than an apartment or hotel style vacation

Very Nice Condo and Property

by Vivian on 04/11/2018
We enjoyed our stay very much. The condo had all the items we needed and even some we didn't expect. Coolers, sunscreen, snorkeling equipment and boogie boards! We were far enough away from downtown Kona so the complex was very quiet. We met some neighbors who have owned their condo 42 years. The complex is very well kept. It was nice to have coffee by the ocean in the morning. A car is needed unless you love walking to get into Kona.

Great Place

by Anonymous on 04/09/2018
Clean, private and quiet with a direct ocean view. We were very pleased. Management company was very helpful. We had a problem with the TV remote and called the management company for some help. A person was there within 30 minutes and showed us how to use the remote properly. Condo had everything we needed. Would definitely stay there again.


by Maria on 04/08/2018
Great location, within walkable distance from bars and restaurants as well as shops. Lots of amenities included and the bathrooms are very nice. The only thing that didn't convince me was the mattress, but everything else was phenomenal. The swimming pool is really nice too.

Highly recommend this unit!

by Elyse on 04/08/2018
This was a beautifully decorated unit, directly facing the beach. The owners did an incredible job of paying attention to detail, and decorated the unit with so many high-end, extra special touches. It was also spotlessly clean. I would definitely stay at this unit again (#303). The only thing I would caution future renters on is that the unit is on the third floor, so people who have difficulty with stairs may want to consider a lower unit. However, the view from the third floor was lovely and I highly recommend this unit to people without any mobility issues.

Gorgeous views & thoughtfully organized

by Rebecca on 04/08/2018
This property was accurately described in its listing. The location was convenient --the layout was open and airy -- the beds were comfortable --the linens were clean -- the kitchen was bigger than expected and had everything we needed to cook and feed our family of 6 -- we had a close, designated parking space -- there were multiple pools available for our use and the one closest to us had an incredible view of the golf course and ocean -- we had good customer service when we couldn't get the wifi working and they sent someone out to help us right away. I was very satisfied with the property and would recommend it to friends and family members. Just a couple things that could have improved our experience is the floors could have been cleaner- I noticed that if we walked around barefoot on the tile that our feet got gray. Another improvement would be a more ample supply of dish washing detergent, paper towels and tissues. We ended up needing to buy our own stuff at the store because we ran out on day 4 or 5. But overall this is the best property I've ever found on VRBO or Home Away and we had a fabulous vacation.

Amazing House In Kona

by Lewis on 04/08/2018
Great place to stay in Kona. Comfortable house, great scenery, very convenient to restaurants and many island attractions. Property is well maintained with attractive garden, and many places to relax and enjoy the ocean view, including the pool and hot tub. Highly recommend this gorgeous property.  Dates of Stay: 2/17/18 - 2/24/18

Thanks for a great stay!

by Jessica on 04/07/2018
This is a beautiful condo located about a 15 minute walk to restaurants, local shops and markets. There is a lovely cafe right in the parking lot with local kona coffee that we stopped by every morning and headed back to the condo to take in the view from the deck. The condo is very clean and well stocked with dishes, laundry facilities in the condo, snorkel gear, beach towels and chairs. The view from the condo is amazing, a great place for coffee in the morning and sunsets in the evening. You can take in views of the ocean and the pool is close by. There is no air conditioning but the condo is located on the bottom floor so we had no issues with it being too hot inside as there are lots of fans. We shared this condo with another couple and found it was the perfect size, with two bathrooms we were able to have space and still enjoy each others company. We would recommend this condo and company to anyone visiting Kona !

Great Location!

by 岩 on 04/07/2018
Very close to the snorkeling location and Hilltop Supermarket, a few minutes drive to the Sheraton to see the devil fish. The community has its own beach, passing through the path opposite the room

Great Stay!

by Sachin on 04/07/2018
Great thanks please for a home base. Pool is nice and location is close to Kona-Kailua. You will need to drive to sand beaches and the parking is really tight for this unit. Street parking was readily available though. We had an issue with the refrigerator but the team was very prompt in helping us to solve it. Overall, a great stay!

Better than expected because of the home and service!

by Amy on 04/07/2018
Our vacation was even better than expected because of this wonderful home. The vacation rental company was attentive from the moment we rented it to the time we checked out. The home is not only very clean and comfortable but has many amenities and the backyard space is truly lovely. We spent much of our time on the lanai and in the pool.

Thank you, we had a great time!

by Diana on 04/07/2018
We stayed with four adults and two children and the space was perfect for us. Basically right across the street from Kahalu'u beach, which has a snorkeling area on one side and a surfing area on the other. Bring water/reef shoes as the rocks are sharp and there are a lot of urchins in the crevices of the rocks. The only drawback to the location is that there are no stores within walking distance, but we did take the trolley from downtown Kona once and that was really nice. The house was well stocked with trash bags, lots of coffee filters, cleaning supplies etc and plenty of towels. The bedrooms are on the small side, but there is enough room on the floor to add a twin mattress (from the daybed) for a child. There is AC, but we only used it once after the house had been shut up all day, normally the breeze and ceiling fans were sufficient. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets from the lanai. Our kids had fun with the foosball table and we borrowed beach chairs, pool noodles and an umbrella from the carport. The wifi is very slow and tends to drop in and out a lot - but the TV has cable so we didn't really need to use Netflix for the kids like we would at home.

Perfect View!

by Linda on 04/07/2018
Nice condo on the beach with a perfect view. Bedrooms are small - only one had room for the pack n play but you don't spend time in the bedroom and it worked.

Excellent Property

by Dennis on 04/07/2018
This is a beautiful house in a great location. Impeccably maintained and fully equipped. Best to back into the parking area for easier exit.

Exactly Like the Pictures!

by Dale on 04/06/2018
We stayed here for a week and loved it. The view from the balcony is amazing, with the surf pounding against the lava rocks about 20 feet away. The unit is attractively decorated with new large appliances and lots of kitchen tools for cooking. It wasn't too expensive for what was offered, and Kona Coast Vacations (the management company we booked from)was excellent checking with us to be sure we were satisfied. The location is great if you want to be close to shops and restaurants in Kona. Our only warning is that even with the small air conditioner running in the living room and fans going, it was very very warm in the bedroom. This didn't spoil our trip - but you need to be prepared for this . Otherwise a great vacation property with a moderate sized pool and hot tub as well as barbecues for use. You can't go wrong with this unit!

Easy check in, quiet, private, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds!

by Kristin on 04/05/2018
The unit was quiet and private. Check in was easy. Close to many beautiful beaches. It was very handy to use their beach items. It didn't have air conditioning, but fans kept it cool and comfortable. Beds were clean and comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped, but we didn't cook. There were cockroaches, but we've seen them at Fairmont Orchid, too. Tips from the concierge service were great!

Very nice one bedroom unit

by Elliott on 04/05/2018
The best feature of this unit is the recently and luxuriously renovated bathroom. The other rooms are also very nice, mostly with tile floors. The furniture is comfortable. The well-appointed kitchen has fairly new appliances. (But for some reason the dishwasher did not do a very good job; we had to re-wash some dishes out of almost every load.) The only items that are missing are barbecue utensils. The sliding door to the lanai is VERY hard to open and close, and the vertical slat drape has certainly seen better days, but other than that all of the furnishings worked fine. However the furniture on the lanai is just a tad too big, making it awkward to maneuver around it. Also, if it rains the upholstered furniture is likely to get wet, making the lanai pretty much unusable until it dries. This unit is back a bit from the ocean, but the third level location allows for a fine ocean view from the lanai. This unit is quite convenient to the elevator, but there are a few steps in between. The company that manages the rental of this unit is very responsive and helpful. We had a minor issue that required attention, and a serviceman came within 30 minutes of our call. The common areas of Casa de Emdeko are beautiful and VERY well maintained. The gas grills provided for residents and guests are top quality.

Very nice place

by Kelly on 04/05/2018
Clean. Beds were nice. It had all of the beach stuff you needed. Found the couch to be uncomfortable.


by Karen on 04/05/2018
Kamilo House was a home away from home with gorgeous 360 degree views, superb amenities, super location, walkable neighborhood, close to town and ocean, and the perfect size! Thank you thank you! We will be back.

Just Amazing

by Brian on 04/04/2018
I hate to recommend this place, because I don't want anyone else knowing about it!

Great place to stay!

by Shannon on 04/04/2018
Loved this condo, well equipped, ocean front location, clean. Responsive staff when we needed something.

Sea Village 1101

by Shannon on 04/04/2018
We stayed 2 weeks in Sea Village 1101. Great condo, well equipped, excellent location right on ocean front. We loved everything about the condo. Would definitely recommend and return again.

Family of 7 adults stay 1 week @ Kokua at Kona Bay Estates

by Craig on 04/03/2018
This home was lovely, well-maintained, and had plenty of room for 7 adults. It's centrally located in a quiet neighborhood (except for the renovation construction going on across the street). It's a very short walk to the sand beach alcove/lave rock formations/beautiful sunsets in this gated community. The weather was pleasant enough that we didn't use the a/c, although it was humid, as can be expected. There was a problem when we first arrived with a moldy coffee filter basket & dirty appliances, dishes, but the rental company was very accommodating, and quickly made an adjustment for us. We would highly recommend this home and the rental company. We will be back again, time permitting!

Perfect location for the Lavaman triathlon

by Sharon on 04/03/2018
This location could not have been any more perfect for the Lavaman triathlon. It made the logistics of race weekend so easy. The property was beautiful and well appointed. Having an assigned parking spot plus guest parking near our unit was ideal. We also made use of the clean pool and the hot tub. My young son really enjoyed walking around on the lawns and paths to look at the flowers and fish ponds. The unit itself was large and very comfortable. All appliances served brand new and we had everything we needed to cook any meal we wanted to using the kitchen and the small grill on the lanai. We didn't make use of the larger g grilling areas but it was nice to know they were available if we had wanted them. We did move some furniture at the beginning of our stay because the tables were glass with sharp corners, not safe for a very active toddler, but we had no issue moving the tables out of the way or back to their original places upon our departure. Our bed was very comfortable and the curtains in the room made it plenty dark. The showers worked well, with plenty of water pressure and water that heated quickly to a steady temperature. The tile floors, remote controlled fans and lighting, and the air conditioning kept the unit comfortable for the duration of our stay. The only downside was not being able to check in until 4pm after arriving on the island at 11:30. This was only an issue for us because my son needed to nap. It turned out to only be a minor inconvenience on the first day and the pros of the condo far outweighed it. We would definitely stay here again on a future trip to the big island, especially for Lavaman

always great

by Marietta. on 04/03/2018
Simply wonderful. Enjoyed every minute.

Beautiful location!

by Elizabeth on 04/02/2018
Sea Village 4106 was a beautiful and easy to access unit, central to most everything on the Kona side of the Big Island. The unit, although a bit outdated, was fairly clean, the common area was great for cooking out, we awoke to dolphins playing off of the lanai each morning! David, the concierge, was wonderful and very accommodating. The only thing we would suggest with this unit is that they update the beach chairs and umbrella, which were all broken. Such a small thing, but everything else was wonderful!!

Review from the Thomsen Family

by Derek on 04/02/2018
What a great experience. We absolutely loved this place and had a fantastic time. We would definitely recommend this to friends and family. The only thing we would change is the soft beds. We like harder beds. No big deal though. For those who like softer beds, then obviously no problems. Certainly lovely layout and would definitely rent again in a couple of years if it’s still available.

Excellent condo...roomy and very clean

by Carol on 04/02/2018
This is a great condo....very roomy and very clean. Worked great for us! Nicely decorated and had plenty of towels, bedding, dishes, cookware, etc! Very helpful book of information about the condo and area available in the condo. This is a residential community with access to a beautiful pool just steps away (also gas grills) plus a community pool for lap swimming and children's pool, tennis courts, even a bookmobile! Very friendly and welcoming neighbors and on-site contact. We most often had the pool to ourselves. Neighborhood was quiet and walking distance to a large grocery store. Drive to beaches not too bad (15 min?). We also drove to Hilo/volcano (less than 2 hours). Thanks for a great week!

Great place. Great location.

by Dan on 04/01/2018
Great place. Great location. Could use more umbrellas/shade at the pool and shoreline.

Top Notch

by David on 04/01/2018
We stay here at least once a year and use Kona coast vacations via Airbnb or another service. They're always top notch in regard to this vacation rental property. Thanks so much! They always make the experience stress and hassle free.

It was homey and perfect for our family

by Nicole on 04/01/2018
Kona Pacific D524 is amazing. It was homey and perfect for our family. It felt so comfortable - the beds were comfy, place was immaculate, the massive lani was a perfect place for our lunches or dinners. It was a quick walk into town which made exploring easy. Kona Coast Vacations was amazing to work with. We will be using them exclusively to stay in kona going forward. Great experience overall!


by Chris on 04/01/2018
Great place to stay right on the magic sands Beach. Family friendly. Everything was fantastic.

Amazing view. Very comfortable quiet place.

by Jermal on 04/01/2018
This was a great place to stay. Very comfortable and the host very accomadating

Everything we need!

by Toni on 04/01/2018
Lovely vacation home right across the beach. It's quiet ,convenient and has an amazing view. It's clean and it has everything that we need.

We will be staying here again in the future without a doubt.

by Kenneth on 04/01/2018
What's not to love about this property! You get what you pay for, and what you get with this home is the best of Kona locations. Keiki Ponds is the protected family beach 100 steps from the lanai, and we felt we didn't need to go anywhere else with our family to enjoy Kona's shores. The house has a plethora of beach towels, two large beach umbrellas, chairs and toys to spend the whole day enjoying the sandy beach. The crashing ocean on the other side of the lava rocks was amazing, and the mornings drinking coffee outside were wonderful. The house is even larger than shown in the photos, if possible, and was well-stocked. The description of the house was accurate, except there are also trundle beds under the two bunk beds and there's a brand new pack n play portable crib in the upstairs closet. The house is located in a great, safe, gated community that was a 12 minute drive to the downtown Kona area. Large private driveway for parking, easy to find location, good list of recommended vendors (we snorkeled with manta rays and dolphins with Jack's Diving Locker, which was on their list and fabulous). Kona Coast Vacations reached out several times before our trip to offer assistance and their concierge services, which we didn't use but appreciated. We will be staying here again in the future without a doubt.

Spacious, clean and a fantastic view!

by T. Wayne on 04/01/2018
This property is in a quiet location but within walking distance to restaurants, shops and grocery stores. The unit is clean and had plenty of room for our family of 4. The view was spectacular. Fantastic sunsets, sea views, golf course and palm trees made it hard to leave the unit some days! This unit was equipped with everything you need in the kitchen (including plenty of airtight reusable containers to save your food and take it to the beach). There are beach towels, snorkel gear and water shoes as well. The location was further south then we are used to but the view made it worth the few extra minutes of travel.

Perfect Place to stay with our large family

by Shalagh on 04/01/2018
We stayed on the Big Island for 2 weeks and we started with 7 days at this amazing home. We had 8 people in our group and there was more than enough room for all of us, couples, teens and all. It was a great house for our large family group! The kids like being able to walk into Kona without us. The small beach area is so safe if you have small children and very near the skateboard park. We loved the pool but I think the kids we had with us (ranging from ages 14 - 22) would say they like the outdoor pool table the best. We stayed in 3 homes throughout the Island this trip and when we asked which was their favourite, this was it! The house is very well equipped with boogie boards, towels, snorkels and beach umbrellas. We used it as our base to explore this side of the Island. It was fantastic!

Wonderful accommodations, beautiful views!

by Debi on 03/31/2018
We loved everything about the condo except for the open walls. The home provides all necessities and more!! We loved the comfy outdoor furniture on the patio where we stayed most of the time. Beautiful views all the way around!

Back for Round Two

by Nancy on 03/31/2018
We didn't expect this encore visit to surpass last year's memorable stay, but it did! Spent more hours in the pool and spa this time, and were happy we did. (Nothing like watching the sun set from the spa, with a glass of champagne in hand!) Discovered the garden, where the owner/management was wise enough to add a bench and tables. Also learned about the pleasures of showering outdoors- didn't even know that was an option last year. Spent a little more time in Kailua town on this trip. Must have tried every fish sandwich in Kona; guess what: they're all good! Our favorite place for breakfast was Lava Java; favorite lunch spot was Huggo's On the Rocks. Speaking of rocks... check out Kona Rocks and Minerals on Ali'i Drive if you're into that sort of thing. There is no question that we've found the right place in GMH. It was such a blast to open that door again, and be greeted by that view. The place just puts a smile on your face. We now think of it as our second home on the Big Island, and have no interest in staying anywhere else. See you next year, GMH! Dates of Stay: 2/26/18 - 3/5/18

casa 10

by Neil on 03/31/2018
everything was up to par except the weather. It was the 10th visit to the casa so the proof is in the pudding. thanks

Would stay here again

by Peggy on 03/30/2018
The pictures don't do this place justice. So clean and so spacious. Loved our stay here. I am only giving 4 stars as it needs some updating, but overall the unit was the perfect place for our family (and visiting friends) to enjoy together.

Lovely condo

by Claudette on 03/30/2018
Lovely condo, very spacious however does not have AC. Close to pool but not to beaches, you will need a car to get around. We enjoyed our stay and were pleased with the place.


by Monica on 03/30/2018
Fantastic condo. Very clean and spacious. Everything you could possibly need. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable for my husband and I and are 2 teenagers. Walking distance to 2 beaches. Excellent communication in advance of our stay.

Spacious and well furnished home, quiet community

by Doreen on 03/30/2018
We travel to the island often and have stayed in many rentals. This house was one of the better ones. The area is quiet yet, easy to access to where you'd want to go. This house itself was nearby to the gate and main entrance but, surprisingly quiet. There wasn't a house on the other side either so, pretty quiet. It was recently furnished for rental and had everything we needed except maybe a couple more kitchen towels. The pool was great to refresh during the day with good sun on the lanai. No AC but we don't like it anyway, ceiling fans and open windows worked fine in March. We will definitely consider staying here again.

vacation at Casa

by Lorella on 03/29/2018
Casa de Emdeko is THE place to stay on the island. The complex is fabulous. This unit was adequately supplied. Any problems with cleanliness or need for new cooking implements were immediately remedied by Kona Coast.

The view from the lanai was beautiful!

by Sondra on 03/28/2018
I had a very nice vacation at the Royal sea cliff unit 209. The condo was very comfortable and had all the amenities one could ask for. The view from the lanai was beautiful! Every thing about the condo was easy and convenient. Minor issues with appliances and technology were addressed very promptly and the people that came to remedy the issues were really accommodating and very pleasant! The only problem encountered was the noise from the pool repairs during the last 4 days of my stay. Makenzie from Kona coast was very responsive and did all she could to make amends for the problem, although it was not within her control to stop the noise. All in all, I am very impressed with the service from Kona coast, and all the staff I dealt with.. I will definitely return to Kona and will surely rent my vacation condo from Kona coast! Thank you for all your great work.

Wow! Really comfortable and central to everything

by Carol on 03/28/2018
This was one of the best places we have stayed. Central to everything we wanted. Fully stocked with everything we needed for our 9 days. Great view of the ocean.

Casa de Emdeko 210

by Bill on 03/27/2018
This was our 20th visit to the Big Island, 18 years in condo 210. Not really a vacation experience, just an opportunity to leave an Alberta winter.

A Perfect Holiday

by Kristina on 03/27/2018
This property exceeded all of our expectations. It was clean, spacious, and welcoming, and the perfect fit for our family. A great location for exploring the western side of the island, with so many beaches and national parks just a short drive away. We ate all of our meals on the lanai, and the kids (7, 9, 10) enjoyed late afternoon swims in the pool almost every day. It was our first trip to the Big Island, and we leave with memories of swimming with spinner dolphins at Two-Step Beach, snorkeling with turtles at several locations, and riding the waves at Hapuna, Beach 69 and Kua Bay. The trip of a lifetime. We can't wait to come back, and will definitely try and stay at this location again.

Amazing view

by Valerie on 03/25/2018
This is an amazing property. Right on the beach. The waves crashing all day and night. We saw turtles right below our lanai. The condo was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is big and very nice. We liked the location, close to town and all the services you need. We will definitely go back.

Clean condo

by Kathy on 03/25/2018
The condo has a good layout. With the main bedroom on one side of the living room and the other bedroom on the opposite side. Both have ensuites, plus one 1/2 bath. It would be fine for a couple. The condo was clean and with enough towels and linens. The bath and beach towels were the largest I have seen and good quality. The master bed (for me) was comfortable with good linens. Kitchen was very well stocked with dishes etc. Having a washer and dryer was convenient. The lanai only has a view of the golf course (but still nice) It is a 15-20 minute walk to the town of Waikoloa for meals or just a stroll. We liked all the restaurants/take outs offered, Pueo Osteria is a little pricey but the others are very reasonable. We like golfing and doing a few beach days and for this the Waikoloa Fairways are ideally situated. 15 minute drive to beaches and only 20 minute drive to Big Island Golf Course (our favourite by far) Also, golfed the course beside the condo and Hapuna Beach, Makalei golf course. All very nice. Hilo is a little over an hour away. I suggest going the high road there for the scenery and then coming back on the saddle road. The fact that it has air conditioning is another bonus.

I would highly recommend this property!

by Rachele on 03/24/2018
We had a wonderful stay and thought the property and amenities were perfect. We loved that the location had a feeling of being secluded and private with the conveniences of shops and downtown near by. I would highly recommend this property!

Thank you for such a beautiful, relaxing space.

by Melodye on 03/24/2018
I chose this condo for it's modern decor, spacious lanai, and easy access to nearby beaches. It did not disappoint in any of those areas! In terms of location, it's close to the main roads/highways that take you to downtown Kona and a few beaches (about a 10-15 min drive) and right across the street from a shopping center with a supermarket. The complex is very quiet-one night I had the pools all to myself-which made for a relaxing vacation. While it was just my husband and me, having two bathrooms was very luxurious, and the condo itself felt very spacious. There isn't AC, but the tons of fans arranged around the place provided a cool breeze. We had everything we needed, including helpful extras like washer & dryer, beach towels, beach chairs & mats, cooler, boogie board, etc. Overall, we loved staying here, and the check-in process was super simple.

We would stay here again!

by Melina on 03/24/2018
Great location! We had a beautiful view and enjoyed coffee on the lanai in the morning and dinner at night. We did have to open all the windows and doors when we first arrived because it was stuffy but that was the only thing I would call out. Quick response times and super accommodating... we would stay there again.

Great Unit, nice location

by Debra on 03/24/2018
This unit was very well maintained, clean and equipped with everything you would need, including at the beach. Out of all our rentals in the past we were impressed with the attention to detail in the unit that most rentals don't think of (hooks on the doors, walls, makeup mirror, extra fans, beach coolers, boogie boards, lots of fresh towels). We were surprised to see a portable air conditioner, which we only used a few times but was nice to have. As well, Tommy Bahama chairs and umbrellas (saved us having to rent). The lanai was beautiful to sit out in the mornings having coffee and in the evenings for dinner. Our only negative comment is the pool area is quite strict with food and drink. It would be nice to have snacks and a cocktail around the pool. The pool area is very quiet and we now understand a review on Trip Advisor that it did not seem very kid friendly. If your thing is the beach then it is not a problem. Overall we would stay at this unit again!

Family Sad to leave this great CLEAN place

by Jessica on 03/22/2018
If your debating about staying here, GO FOR IT! Great directions and easy details. A very clean condo. Nice furniture. The beds were great - the best sleep we had on the island and we stayed at we other locations. Very updated and organized kitchen and all of the fixtures and furnishings in this place was well taken care of and clean. Only problem we had was the showerhead in one of the bathrooms and its spray. Loved the views and the chorus of birds in the morning was delightful. The snorkeling across the road from the unit was great & easy for even beginners. Great Deal & Place. Would book again - we were all sad to leave this location!!! Thank you for having us!!!

Fabulous condo on the Kona coast

by Leonard on 03/22/2018
we loved this condo on the ocean. Waking up every morning to that incredible view was awesome. The condo was clean and comfortable, kitchen well stocked and both bedrooms had comfortable king sized beds! It was in a great location to all the shops and activities that Hawai'i offers. We loved the pool in the afternoon and walking the beach collecting shells in the morning. It took alittle getting used to being awakened every morning by singing birds but we grew to like them!

Beautiful Setting

by Michael on 03/21/2018
Beautiful paradise setting. We enjoyed our stay at The Orchid Inn. My 10 year old grandson was so impressed, he asked if we could leave a thank you note for the owner.

Absolutely amazing home. Will come again!

by Brian on 03/21/2018
This house is simply amazing. Very comfortable with an incredible ocean view. Only a short drive to town with lots of restaurants, bars and shops. We were travelling with 6 adults and 4 teenagers. Pool was a bit chilly on cloudy days, but otherwise nice. The attached ohana suite was great for my inlaws to be able to have some privacy away from the rest of the family. We will definitely be back to enjoy this home again.

We will definately stay again!

by Marlly on 03/20/2018
Home is exactly as shown in pictures. Beautiful, spacious and clean. Host followed up next day we arrived to make sure everything went smoothly. Only issue was some other vehicle was parked in our assigned parking so we had to park at a visitors spot till the next day. Also, couple of power outlets kept going off (not work) while trying to use the toaster and hair dryer but we will definitely stay again in this beautiful home next time we visit the big island.

We loved our stay here and would definitely come back!

by Marie on 03/20/2018
The location of this condo was perfect! Right on Ali'i drive with a view of the ocean and sunsets. Although the traffic on Ali'i can be a bit loud, it was worth it to be directly across the street from a beautiful ocean bay. The condo was super clean and well stocked for beach and outdoor activities. Our only frustration was that the east bedroom didn't have a screen on the outside door so we were unable to leave the door open for fresh air at night and we did have a couple of rather hot evenings. We loved our stay here and would definitely come back!

Nice spacious 1 bedroom condo.

by Grant on 03/20/2018
Nice spacious 1 bedroom condo. Two good pools (fresh and salt water) plus sand area for basking.

Thanks so much. Appreciate the communication.

by Leigh on 03/20/2018
Great base to explore the big island- all was good. Many thanks!

place to stay when visiting hawaii

by Cesar on 03/20/2018
Beautiful home. Great place to stay when visiting hawaii

Ideal place to stay if you're a golfer!

by Chris on 03/20/2018
It was easy to call this place home away from home. Walked to the Pro Shop in 2 minutes. Great view of the first tee and Mauna Kea. The unit was loaded with amenities. Both the maintenance staff and property manager responded to our minor concerns very quickly. Very handy having the well-stocked grocery store a 5 minute drive away. The property inside and out was clean except for the windows. I spent 4 hours cleaning all the inside windows in order to enjoy the view. We got to tour the whole island in the 4 weeks we were here, in addition to playing golf almost every other day. We loved that the neighborhood was quiet and safe.

Great Condo with a Great View

by Scott on 03/20/2018
This was a great condo with a wonderful view. We spent countless hours on the lanai listening to the waves and watching the ocean. We even saw a whale and a tail slap about 300 yards out one morning. There were also a couple of times when dolphins swam by. The condo had everything we needed and we had no problems. Kona Coast Vacations is very organized and our check in and out went smoothly. It was great having our personal concierge David, who helped us out on an outing. I highly recommend Kona Coast Vacations and this condo.

Pool, ocean , evening sunset! Want to come back next year!

by Kimberly on 03/19/2018
Amazing location. Close to restaurants, shops , or anything you could possibly need. The view could not of been better. Pool, ocean , evening sunset! The concierge, David was so helpful and so lovely. We wanted tips on what to do and where to go with small children. He helped us with hikes, beaches and restaurants, ect.. Want to come back next year!

This unit exceeded all our expectations and we would love to come back and stay in this unit again.

by James on 03/19/2018
The pictures of the unit are pretty accurate but, the unit is much better than the pics. When we walked in we could see this was a first class unit, minimum 4 to 5 stars. The owners obviously took great care in decorating and outfitting the unit with everything one could want. First off two bottles of very nice wine, gourmet Kona Coffee, treats, spice gift set as a welcome gift to their beautiful home. Brand new appliances, quality dishes, glasses, cookware, everything one would expect in a 5 star unit. Beautifully equipped furnishings in all rooms with brand new high quality beds, bedding, brand new super soft towels. Almost too much to mention. The location of the unit is right in the heart of Kona, on the main drag, Alii Dr. 7th floor (top floor), next to corner unit and is very private with awesome views of the ocean and town. The binoculars provided were a real Nice touch since it made the viewing of fish from the balcony more exciting. In fact we saw the spinner dolphins playing and swimming with snorkelers not more than 200 yards off shore. A real treat thus inspiring us to use the provided beach supplies (masks, fins snorkels, beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, picnic coolers) so we could also swim with the dolphins in Kealakekua Bay. This unit exceeded all our expectations and we would love to come back and stay in this unit again. One of the best units My wife, brother in law , sister in law and I have ever stayed in our 30 years of traveling together. If you want a wounderful experience by all means, rent this unit you will not be dissatisfied.

very spacious and very well equipped

by Ivan on 03/19/2018
We had a terrific vacation at Country Club Villas #324. Our unit was very spacious and very well equipped. We enjoyed the size and privacy of the lanai. And the beds were very comfortable. We will indeed book with Country Club Villas when we next vacation in Kona.

Wonderful location

by Cathy on 03/19/2018
We had a great stay at this wonderful condo! The condo is exactly as pictured. It is close to shopping and a few farmers markets. Amy at Kona Coast Vacations was great to work with. Would definitely stay here again.

Hawaii Trip 2018

by Greig on 03/19/2018
There was four of us staying in the unit. It was very clean and comfortable. When sitting on the lanai it was very peaceful and quiet. We did the manta ray snorkel and lots of other snorkeling - the special highlight was swimming/snorkeling with the dolphins at the Kealakekua Bay. We also did lots of walking/hiking. The Beach Club was great and the snorkeling was amazing! Would recommend staying here.

well stocked and very clean

by Donna on 03/18/2018
Fabulous, this was our 5th time to the Big island, our condo was well stocked and very clean. Spoke to Donna a few times while making reservations, she was very kind and informative. We enjoyed the stay and all the wonderful activities, David was very helpful & signed us up for Ride the Rim ATV tour, that was awesome. Our favourite spot is Hapuna beach for body surfing! We will be back!

We will be back!

by Terry on 03/17/2018
Although this isn't a top of the line unit it was clean, comfortable and very efficient for two people. You could tell the owner really did their best to include small comforts that made it very much like home or like you were renting from family or a friend. It was also very quiet with the elevator very close which was nice. Many of the guests were long time visitors which gave it a community feel. The salt water pool and the layout around it was really terrific. There is no washer and dryer in unit but the complex laundry was clean and easy to use if you wanted too. Parking was a little challenging especially when you came in later in the evening but one call to the management company let us know we could park in the parking lot outside the gate. Walking into downtown Kona is possible (less than 2 miles) but Ali Blvd is really busy these days so be prepared for traffic nearly all the time. We would recommend this unit to others for sure and are hoping ourselves to go back to Kona next year and this unit will be on the top of the list.

We loved it! Highly recommend this home for family vacations.

by Perry on 03/16/2018
We were in a family vacation with my three adult children and partners. Our accommodation was important to the success of the trip. I cannot day enough about how well this home worked for us. Great pool and gardens, clean and well equipped. We loved having dinners at the large lani table with the view of the coast and Kona. Highly recommend this home for family vacations.

I can't say enough good things about this place!

by Michelle on 03/16/2018
Highly recommend this house for your trip to the Big Island! The pictures are accurate but the house felt like so much more! The rooms were big, beautiful, and had amazingly comfortable beds. Plenty of bathrooms with lots of towels and toiletries provided. Huge kitchen with space to cook and store all of our food. We had little ones with us and there was a crib, high chair, and plenty of toys for the trips to Keiki beach. I can't say enough good things about this place! Well worth it and we couldn't have imagined staying anywhere else! So close to everything we wanted to see as well. Thank you so much!

Hello, thank you for being a great host!

by Rajdeep on 03/16/2018
Had a great stay at Kona Coast vacations. The location is excellent, being right in front of a beach known for snorkeling.

very nice property

by Wayne on 03/16/2018
as described, great location, great salt water pool, clean unit with all necessary amenities. parking was a bit of a hassle due to lack of designated parking and limited spaces.

Very Nice!!!

by Joann on 03/16/2018
This place is very nice! We really enjoyed it here for our 4 night stay. It was well stocked with towels and kitchen had everything for cooking a meal. They supplied dish soap and paper towels. Also had some laundry soap.. Only thing missing that would have been nice is beach chairs.... Beds were pretty comfortable, The only reason I didn't give this a 5 star is because there is a musty moldly odor that we noticed. It didn't bother me to much, but in case you are sensitive to odors, it is worth noting.

Loved the place!Suggestion a handle in tub.

by Maria on 03/16/2018
We loved the location and everything inside the condo was thought out and very clean. We appreciated all the little touches, even condiments in the kitchen and plenty of sunscreen lotion in the cupboard! Our only suggestion is that you consider putting a handle in the bathtub. We noticed as we looked down at the guests in the pool area there were many seniors like ourselves. If someone gets soap in their eyes while bathing or slips a bit they need to have something to hold on to or they can crash through the glass. This would be important!

Family get together

by Norman on 03/15/2018
My family has been staying at various Halii Kai units over the past 9 years and this has been the nicest stay yet. Not only was the unit very clean, but the owners are very generous with what they let their guests use, including boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas. The unit is well stocked in the kitchen as well as with linens and beach towels. Lastly, it is perfectly located not far from the tennis court and pool area with a beautiful ocean view.

The condo was perfect

by Ken on 03/14/2018
Our time on the Big Island was amazing and all that we hoped to experience. Snorkeling at a number of areas was a real highlight as well as hiking through lava fields and the rain forests. The condo was perfect. Very convenient, clean and well updated. The online listing was accurate and helped us to pick just the right spot. Thanks again

Great Location!

by Gabrielle on 03/13/2018
Convenient to attractions and restaurants!

Beautiful home in paradise!

by Susan on 03/13/2018
The photos do not do justice to this lovely Keahou Estates home. The home is absolutely immaculate and appears newly remodeled. The kitchen is well-appointed and has everything you will need for your visit. We have stayed in many vacation rentals over the years and this home had by far the best selection of cookware, utensils, glassware, and serving dishes of any home we have rented. Everything was top quality; the owners spared no expense in furnishing and equipping the property. The home was so clean that it sparkled. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Two of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, and a third bedroom/den has access to a guest bathroom with shower. The master bedroom and bath are enormous. Our son (USMC 1st Recon Battalion 2007-2011) joined us from his job in Washington, D.C. and greatly enjoyed and appreciated the Marine Corps mementos in the den. Because the weather was so beautiful, we spent most of our time on the lanai and around the pool. There were plenty of lounge chairs and outdoor tables as well as a gas BBQ for grilling steaks. The pool is maintained weekly and was very clean. Two small side fountains spray water from the outer rim of the pool back into the center of the pool for several hours a day. We weren’t sure if the fountains served an additional practical function, but the pool service explained that it is simply a decorative water feature. The fountains are on a timer for the first half of the day and we grew to love the sound of the running water. You can stay to one side of the pool if you don’t want to get sprayed, and the sprinkler automatically turns off in the early afternoon. The pool guy said a family with young children had rented the house the week before and the kids thought the fountains were the greatest things in the world. They loved feeling the spray of water on their heads and shoulders. The house is directly across from the gatehouse and is on the main path as you enter and exit the subdivision. We were a bit worried whether traffic noise might be a problem, but it was not an issue. Keahou Estates is an extremely quiet, safe, and upscale neighborhood, and we barely heard any vehicle traffic. The landscaping is lush and well maintained, and the living room and lanai boast a fantastic and unimpeded view of the ocean. The house and grounds feel very private. It is obvious that a lot of thought and love has gone into this property, and the pride of ownership is apparent.

Fantastic Place and location

by Jill on 03/12/2018
This property was exactly what we were looking for! The unit was clean, updated, equipped w sand/beach stuff and and the bed.....omg the bed pillows and linen were amazing. Loved that it was air-conditioned also, not that it is completely necessary, but we slept soooooo good. We did not rent a car, we shipped our street bikes and road everywhere. Probably one of the best trips we have had to the islands, first time to Kona, and we will definitely be back.

A really luxurious home inside and out

by Ken on 03/12/2018
Pictures can’t get across how nice this home is. It really made the vacation to be able to come home to such luxury- so much so, that we spent a lot more time there than we expected. It’s in a very quiet gated community, and the grounds were perfectly manicured. The house was very open with many glass sliding doors to enjoy the view from every room, including the two spectacular bedrooms upstairs that have large lanais of their own. It was also spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated with a great modern look to it. There is a near 180 degree view of the ocean, along with the privacy provided by the lush vegetation. The pool is long enough to do laps, but we spent most of our time in the spa. Because this is a home, you get everything you would normally expect to have at home including a washer and dryer and a kitchen with all necessary cookware. We only ate breakfasts there, since the house is located close to the town of Kailua and many local restaurants. There are plenty of things to do nearby. Try snorkeling at Kahalu'u or Two Step, or just hang out there. We had a very nice tour of the Greenwell Kona Coffee Farms which is just around the corner, and the Paleaku Peace Garden isn’t to be missed. The house is close to the Kona airport and well situated for longer day trips to the northern and southern coasts as well as the volcano areas. I definitely expect to return to GMH, and would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat. Date of Stay: 2/7/18 to 2/14/18

Very nice!

by Ronda on 03/12/2018
The property was as described. I have a high standard for cleanliness and this unit met that standard. There were some beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers, etc. for use which was very much appreciated. I would definitely recommend this unit. It had a lovely large lanai. The only small detractor was the very narrow parking spaces (end to end). Doable but passengers had to unload before parking. It was covered garage parking which was a plus.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it

by William on 03/12/2018
We investigated other vacation residences, but eventually decided to stick with GMH, and we’re glad we did. As before, the house and grounds were impeccable, and the view was just as we remembered it: magnificent. (It must be quite a chore to clean all that glass!) We took some long trips to Volcanoes National Park, Hilo, and Kohala on this vacation, and the house, with its pool, spa, and air conditioning, was always a wonderful place to return to after being on the road all day. Missed out on the sunset from Mauna Kea because of bad weather; oh well, something to look forward to next year. See you in 2019, GMH! Dates of Stay: 2/26/18 to 3/5/18

Five star experience for sure!!

by Matt on 03/11/2018
We would definitely do business with KCV again!

Great Location!

by Nick on 03/11/2018
Spacious place, great location. Easy access and plentiful parking.

Great Place to Stay!

by James on 03/11/2018
Great place to stay, very quiet except for the sounds of the ocean.

Clean and comfortable

by Richard on 03/11/2018
Comfortable unit very close to the downtown area, with the Farmer's Market, library and some excellent restaurants.

Our stay was wonderful

by Syma on 03/11/2018
Our stay was wonderful. The condo was spacious, clean and lovely. We especially loved the tranquility and beauty sitting out on the lanai.

Great ocean view, clean, comfy and well equipped

by Irene on 03/11/2018
We loved staying here - such a great start to our vacation. Enjoyed relaxing on the lanai, looking for whales and dolphins, swimming in the salt water pool, cooking in the well equipped kitchen. Comfy bed with sound of the waves, quiet at night. Older building but lovingly maintained. And endless hot coffee in the morning in the cabana downstairs. Very happy!

Right on the ocean

by Roxann on 03/09/2018
Having spent two nights in the rainforest of Volcano visiting volcanoes, coming to the Kailua Kona side was a real treat. We went from non-stop rain to sunshine and beautiful blue ocean waves. The lanai is an amazing place to spend the afternoon listening to the waves crash and watching the sea going boats cruise by. We never got tired of it. In fact, the TV was never turned on, as even in the evening we would spend time out on the lanai. The unit was very clean and there was plenty of linens for the two of us. The available beach towels were appreciated, too. If inclined for a stroll, tourist shopping and many, many eateries were available within a comfortable half mile walk. I bought the nicest fruit at the market I walked to. The apple bananas, by the way, are amazing and delicious. Even the nearby (within walking distance) ABC store sold pineapple, which is a must to eat while traveling the Hawaiian Islands. There are many Kona coffee farms within 1/2 hour drive and even the worlds only octopus farm. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend. It worked great for the two of us.

Great condo!

by Jennifer on 03/08/2018
The condo was beautiful and in such a great location. We really loved staying here. Waking up to the sounds of the ocean every day was amazing.


by Heidi on 03/08/2018
We loved our time at Kanaloa. The unit was clean, comfortable and offered an amazing view of the ocean. The complex was quiet and extremely well maintained. We will try to book this condo for our next trip to the Big Island.

very clean, well-kept home

by Allen on 03/07/2018
We stayed in Fairways #1104 from 2/1/18 to 2/24/18. This was our 3rd annual stay in #1104. It is a very clean, well-kept home that is beautifully decorated and comfortable. Last year owners put in a new king-size bed in MB, a new sofa, chairs, wonderful reading lamp for living area and new area rugs. All so well appointed. Linens are always clean, appliances always work and kitchen is well stocked with dinnerware, glasses, cooking utensils, pots and skillets, etc. Porch off dining area and upper lanai look out over the 12th tee box on the Mauna Lani North Course. The grounds of the Fairways complex are beautifully landscaped and the common swimming pool area is comfortable and welcoming. We plan to return in 2019.

Great experience, looking forward to booking eith them again!

by Nicolas on 03/06/2018
Great quiet location with a lot of space inside and out. Kona Coast Vacations was very quick to respond to a small concern we had. Great experience look forward to booking with them again.

Everything was great!

by Richard on 03/06/2018
Everything was great. Especially enjoyed being across the street from the beach. The concierge service was very helpful.

Spacious, lots of space for everyone!

by Russell on 03/06/2018
The house was amazing. It was spacious and had lots of room for everyone. And the view was spectacular. Even though we had some issues with a leak in one of the bedrooms and no air conditioning in another, I would still consider renting this home again for another visit to The Big Island.

Great house, amazing lanai!

by Lindsay on 03/06/2018
We enjoyed our stay, beautiful garden and pool area and the lanai was amazing. The house was very clean. The management team and owners were great, any questions were answered right away with no issues. They also had a lot of great tips about the island which was nice!

Country Club Villa 120

by Edward & Carol on 03/06/2018
Our experience was excellent, we appreciated the updates the owners have made and look forward to next year returning again.

Vacation in Paradise

by Donald on 03/06/2018
The condo has everything a person needs for a great vacation. It is located about 1 block from the ocean and a block from the bay where all the restaurants are located. The condo is located on the north side of the building and it has a wonderful lanai. Since it is on the north, there is no direct sun so you can enjoy it all day long. It also faces lovely bushes and it is very private. Very quiet neighbors. The condo had all the items you need for cooking your meals. We especially like the beach chairs and ice chest for using at the beach or when exploring the island. Lots of water toys. Have already reserved it for next year.

Great Home Base for a week in Paradise

by Theo on 03/06/2018
Family trip - my wife and I, our 3 adult children and their significant others. Slept 4 couples comfortably - with plenty of privacy for everyone. The 3 baths provided all the convenience we needed. The kitchen was excellent - having all the gear we needed to prepare everything from blended cocktails to full meals - we just supplied the ingredients. The bbq was put to good use a number of times. Both the upstairs and downstairs lanai's were big enough to accomadate all 8 of us (and we are a tall group...). The living room was perfect to lounge about in, and with a laptop and HDMI cable we could share the days pictures on the big screen and the wifi was sufficient for 8 simultaneous users. The house was very convenient to the airport, but also to routes into town or across the island. The neighborhood was quiet and we enjoyed the wide variety of birds, especially in the early morning. One of the biggest bonuses of booking with a Kona Coast vacation was the concierge service provided by David at Kona Concierge. Not only did we get good prices on several activities (ziplining, spa treatments and the night manta snorkel), but we also got great planning advice for our lava hike and bike, as well as advice on diving sites and how best to plan everything. By the time we left, we all agreed this was one of the best family vacations, and having a great home base was a big part of it.

#323 in Casa de Emdeko

by Linda on 03/05/2018
We are just at the end of a 9 night stay at #323 in Casa de Emdeko. It was our very first time in Hawaii. Casa de Emdeko #323 is a real gem. Very clean, updated, 1 bedroom. The king size bed is awesome, big fluffy pillows and a beautiful comforter as well. Having a TV in the bedroom is a bonus. The appliances are perfect, even an ice maker in the fridge. Loved having a washer and dryer of our own! The balcony has a beautiful big table. One evening, while sitting out, we could see the full moon, lights on the hillside from homes, the waterfall and fountain in the courtyard, the freshwater pool, and the ocean. All from our balcony. The only thing we couldn't see was the salt water pool overlooking the ocean. The place is very clean, comfortable, and pretty quiet. If you forgot anything, there is a little store 2 min walk that carries almost anything you might need, including liquor. If you are party animals, this is not the place for you, but if you like a friendly, laid back atmosphere, this is it. Thank you Kona Coast for hooking us up with this perfect spot. Our only complaint - there are not marked/assigned parking spots for each unit, and my brother-in-law sometimes had to park outside the gate. But that is a small inconvenience, in an otherwise great holiday!!!

Nice Condo

by Jeffrey on 03/05/2018
Stayed 5 nights. Condo well maintained. Having towels and a few snorkeling supplies was very nice. Nice location across from popular snorkeling area. Nice lanai with good view of ocean and pool. Very close to grocery store. Short drive to downtown area for restaurants, shopping etc. Closest beach was Magic Sands less than 2 miles up the road which is small but convenient. Concierge from Kona Coast Vacations was very helpful with beach recommendations and booking dolphin cruise. Would stay here again

Bucket list vacation

by Terri on 03/04/2018
We were 2 couples coming to the big island for 4 days of our 2 week Hawaiian vacation. We loved our stay here and felt very comfortable at this condo here at Kona Coast. The neighbours were very helpful and friendly. If we return we all decided we would book here again. Great central location!

Great main living space! Very spacious and quiet

by Darcee on 03/04/2018
We really enjoyed the location of this condo! It is right across from the best snorkeling area we found while on the big island. The condo is very spacious and comfortable. The only reason I am not rating it 5 stars is because the bedrooms are right off the main hallway of the complex and you could see through the shades from the outside hallway which meant that while changing in the bedrooms I had to keep the lights off in order to have privacy. That wasn't ideal. Otherwise we really enjoyed our experience!
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.   
Please be assured that we have shared your concerns with our management team and the units owner.  We appreciate you taking the time to share them with us.
 We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.
*update date as of 5/1/18: the issue with the bedroom shades has been corrected
Kona Coast Vacations

View IS what's in the pic

by Diane on 03/04/2018
Gorgeous view. Great condo. Good location, quiet ('cept for those pesky crashing waves). Would stay here again. Date of Stay: 2/14/18 to 2/17/18

Top Quality and nice Lanai

by Andreas on 03/04/2018
We really liked the location. Kitchen is well equipped, Lanai great for breakfast and a dinner at sunset. Interior is all from very good quality, one feels immediately home and all very clean and enough space.

Hawaiian Paradise

by Virginia on 03/04/2018
Great place! Everything was clean and in working order! David, the property concierge, was exceptional! He helped book adventures and restaurants. We could call him anytime and he responded quickly. The townhouse was quiet and beautiful.

Casa wonderful!

by Murray on 03/02/2018
LOVE it!! 208 was as better than the description. Communications with KCV were prompt, professional and very helpful. They even helped us print our boarding passes. They kept the grounds very well maintained, they always seemed to be doing something to make it nicer. I can't think of anything in the condo that we didn't have. The kitchen had all the things to cook with , there was beach equipment - chairs, snorkelling, beach towels, etc.The condo was very clean, lots of towels, comfortable bed, good WiFi ( but only in the condo), AC & fans. Very quiet and restful. Date of Stay: 2/24/18 to 3/2/18

Big Island get away

by Richard on 03/02/2018
Great room, awesome view,

Highly Reccommend this Place

by Margie on 03/01/2018
This place was great! Loved the location right next to a great snorkeling beach. And the condo was well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. Highly recommend this place.

Such an Amazing Place!....Right on the Water!

by Christopher on 03/01/2018
This is such an amazing place! Far exceeded our expectations and made the trip so much more amazing. Plenty of room for everyone and such a fantastic place on the property--right on the water!


by Chuck on 02/28/2018
Very well equipped and furnished unit,Nice bonus to have the beach stuff chairs,umbrella,snorkel gear,etc

#323 is a real GEM!!

by Dale on 02/28/2018
We've stayed at the Casa many times and this unit (#323) is really great! Loved the king bed (nice linens, too) and nice shower! We saw a few ants (inevitable in Hawaii!!) but KCV came right over with little traps and they were gone the next day!! Worked perfect for us! We'll definitely keep this one on our list when we visit Kona!! Date of Stay: 2/16/18 to 2/23/18


by Joanne on 02/28/2018
Our stay at Keauhou Estate was breath taking. The pictures of the home is just what you get. Beautiful setting in the hills, house is very will laid out. Everything you would need in the kitchen. Very clean thru out the property. David was very helpful in booking trips. Rental company were a pleasure to work with. Only wish there was some beach equipment. Will stay in the area on our next visit. Date of Stay: 2/9/19 to 2/23/18

Great sunsets, great neighbours

by Traci on 02/27/2018
If you want to live like a local, this is the place. Everyday Hawaii living. Condo is good for a family with children or two couples. A little hard to get used to the street traffic; busy road close by and hard to sleep with windows open (no A/C),but this seems to be the norm in this area. The condo was very clean. Only drawback, condo is somewhat dated, furniture is not very comfortable. However, the owner and vacation rental company were very easy to get along with and everything went smooth. That says a lot in my books, I would book with them again. Date of Stay: 2/14/18 to 2/22/18

Nice stay at Waikoloa Village

by Art on 02/27/2018
Love Kona. Nice unit clean with great views of the golf course , water and Maui. Good location with nice sized pool.

Great Family House in Kona!

We stayed at this beautiful property for a week. There was 8 of us and it was large enough that we were all very comfortable and had room to move! Most of our time was spent by the pool. Shopping is close by and it is a secured gated community. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and professional. I'd definitely recommend this place.

Very clean and comfortable condo

by Tom on 02/27/2018
Very clean and comfortable condo. A bit dated, but well taken care of. Great location. Date of Stay: 2/16/18 to 2/25/18

Top-Notch Experience with Kona Coast vacations!

by David on 02/26/2018
Our experience with Kona Coast Vacations was top-notch. This apartment was spacious, very clean, with full kitchen, and a large lanai with a view to the beach. It has two full bedrooms and bathrooms with TVs in each, as well as a large one in the living room. Their owners manual had good suggestions about things to do on the island. One of the best beach and snorkel areas is only one-hundred yards away. Another plus is a shopping center with grocery, clothing, and drugstore just one mile away. Covered parking was great. The apartment is centrally located along the west coast.We highly recommend this apartment and Kona Coast Vacations. We look forward to staying here when we return.

The house was perfect and and the views were gorgeous!

by Cesarnkaren on 02/26/2018
This house was beautiful with everything you need already there! The views are gorgeous and the space is amazing. Plenty of room to hang out and enjoy the sounds while drinking coffee and taking in the views. Thank you Kona Coast Vacation's, you made this trip that much more memorable.

fabulous location and views

by Brooke on 02/26/2018
Great location across from Kahalu'u Beach Park. Beautiful views. Home was well maintained and clean. We did not really use the kitchen but appeared well stocked. Customer service was great. Felt stay was a good value. Be aware it is a bit of a drive to get to any restaurants. The description and photos are accurate. Beds very comfy. Would return!

Amazing luxury home

by Kian on 02/26/2018
This place lived up to all the pictures. The view was exactly as described in the photos and the interior was even nicer than it looked. Kitchen was excellent and well-stocked with everything we could think of for cooking and baking. Indoor/outdoor living space was beautiful and comfortable. We loved the entire experience! Date of Stay: 2/16/18 to 2/23/18

Absolutely beautiful and very comfortable

by Marilynn on 02/25/2018
The condo is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. It offered all the amenities we needed during our stay. We want to make certain the owner knows how much we appreciate staying at such a lovely property. The Royal Sea Cliff resort complex itself is extremely nice and well-kept. Everyone is doing an excellent job. We enjoyed the pools and meeting other residents and sharing stories about our travels and theirs. And we also appreciated the easy access and departure process. We will not hesitate in recommending this property and referring our friends to Kona Coast Vacation Rentals for their Hawaiian visits. Date of Stay: 2/10/18 to 2/20/18

Great location near Kona

by Dan on 02/25/2018
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. Location was great - only a 5 minute drive from Kona, with a great view of the ocean and sunset each evening. House was clean and very well stocked with linens, towels etc. and kitchen had ample supply of utensils, dishes and pots. Pool is 'solar heated' so was a bit cool for some of us in the group but that is to be expected in Hawaii in Feb. Only suggestion we would have is that a few more loungers by the pool would be nice as 2 loungers wasn't enough for 6 people. We went from busy Honolulu to the Big Island which has a nice laid back feel and we will definitely stay at this house when we do that again. Date of Stay: 2/10/18 to 2/21/18

Petfect Hawaiian Getaway

by Anonymous on 02/24/2018
This was our fourth visit to this unit on the Big Island. We appreciate its ease of access and privacy. The unit has everything you need to feel at home. The pool is great but we spend most of our time at the Beach Club close to the Mauna Lani resort. The beach is pristine and the snorkeling is amazing. It's proximity to Hapuna State Park and the north part of the island (Waimea and Havi) allow for quick trips to an outstanding market and hiking. Having a grocery store (.3 mi) very close is also convenient. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the lanai upstairs. A perfect Hawaiian retreat. The property is as described and pictured and is a nice set up for 2 couples or family of 4.

Wonderful time. We loved it!

by Stephan on 02/23/2018
We were a group of 6 people with 3 couples. The house was very spacious with 3 bedrooms and three bathrooms. The are two balcony's and a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable living room. It has a beautiful and big garden. It is located a little up in the mountain where it is very quiet. We enjoyed our time there very much and could not ask for anything better. All together a perfect place to explore big island.

Everything we needed and more!

by Linda on 02/23/2018
The view is super, the overlook to the ocean spectacular in the day and at sunset too. The decor was lovely and comfortable inside and out, with a well-appointed kitchen and details throughout the house which added to its enjoyment. We had everything we needed and more.

Great Stay. Loved this place!

by Margie on 02/23/2018
This place was great! Loved the location right next to a great snorkeling beach. And the condo was well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. Highly recommend this place.

I was immediately impressed

by Christopher on 02/23/2018
Immediately upon parking, I knew we were in for a treat. The property was beautiful, & the house was magnificent. It was incredibly clean, comfortable furnishings, climate controlled, & very welcoming. The area was quiet & comfortable. The pool was a nice cool temperature on a hot day, the patio was great for entertaining & the direction of the back yard offered insane sunset views. We had a group of 7 in the house, & at no point did the place ever feel over crowded to too small. The ONLY critique I can give of the place is that they need a new BBQ, but since I work for Weber, I'm a little biased on the types of grill I use. 😉 Overall, I can't say enough great things about this property, & we'd definitely rent this home again.

Beautiful unit with everything you need

by Bromley on 02/22/2018
Great unit with all the essentials. Staff helped us find the unit as we got a little lost coming from the airport. Service was top notch. Pool was clean and beautiful. Views from the unit were great. Quite area. Date of Stay: 2/15/18 to 2/18/18

Beautiful condo with amazing ocean views!

by Jenna on 02/22/2018
This was a wonderful unit! This was our first time renting a unit at Kona Isle. We had to book last minute because our previous VRBO fell through and this unit at Kona Isle met and exceeded all our expectations. The unit was clean and newly furnished. There were boogie boards and beach towels available for use. Though it would be nice if beach chairs and snorkel gear were also available as we had to rent those. We would absolutely stay here again. The ocean view is amazing and we watched whales and surfers from our lanai every morning while eating breakfast before heading out to the beach. We also loved all the other wonderful people who own units at Kona Isle. We felt welcomed and loved on by all our neighbors! The keyless lock entry was perfect so we never had to worry about leaving or losing a room key. While it would have been nicer to be closer to Kona so we could walk to town for dinner that is our only complaint.

Great Condo in Keauhou

by Paul on 02/22/2018
Nicely appointed , comfortable 2 BR, 2 BA condo with loft, large lanai with great view towards the coast. Kitchen was great for family gatherings and cooking. Gas grill on the lanai was perfect. Just south of Kona, less busy, less traffic, just up the hill from Keauhou Harbor. A perfect stay for our family. Would definitely rent again. Date of Stay: 2/11/18 to 2/18/18

Good location good size for studio condo

by Robert on 02/22/2018
Condo in pretty good shape. On golf course with view of ocean. We liked new pots and pans! Like most places we rent, poor knives, bring your own. They could use a foam mattress topper on bed and a larger TV. The people above have there tv on loud from morning to 11:00 pm everyday. We where told 9 steps down to condo but are 15 which was very hard for my wife. Date of Stay: 1/30/18 to 2/14/18

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.   

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.


Kona Coast Vacations

It was lovely

by Bethany on 02/21/2018
It was lovely. The house was amazing. We will be back thank you.

Great Space

by Terry on 02/20/2018
Condo E630 was a great space. Clean, Quiet with water view and close to Kona action. My only complaint was the coffee maker took 45 minutes to an hour to brew. After a few days I had the Aloha spirit and didn't care about brew time. Thanks for the memories

Great Home!

by Charles on 02/20/2018
This was a great home. We enjoyed the pools, the view, and the comfortable places to sit and talk.

Great Stay!

by Matthew on 02/20/2018
Clean, simple and cosy condo tucked away on the Kona coastline. While this unit isn't ocean front, sunsets on the pool deck area were perfect.

Comfortable, everything you need!

by Sharon on 02/20/2018
This beautiful condo was everything it was advertised to be. The furnishings were new and comfortable and the view spectacular. The owners thought of adding everything you could need. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Just what we were looking for!

by Pamela on 02/20/2018
The place was great. Just what we were looking for in the way of location. It was just the two of us so the two extra bedrooms weren't used. Wonderful whale and dolphin watching, and sunset views. If we were ever to buy a place in Hawaii, this is the type we'd look for. The kitchen was very well appointed: cooking gear, plates, flatware, and glassware. The dishwasher is the drawer type, which was nice for two of us: we could load up one drawer and run it. Place mats were an unexpected bonus! Cloth napkins would be wonderful but maybe that's asking too much. Nicely decorated throughout. The pool area is very nice. Plus there is a small restaurant and bar exclusively for residents and guests. The food there was surprisingly good. A trail near the pool area leads to the primitive shoreline trail which takes you to the Hilton area to the south and the black sand beach and Mauna Lani to the north. We would definitely stay here again. This is our fifth consecutive year to vacation on the Big Island but the first in a condo. Seventeen nights at a resort then 12 nights here. There's no late checkout. Our flight off the island is late (10 pm) so we booked an extra night and stayed until 7-ish thus avoiding aimlessly wandering the island between checkout and the drive to the airport.

Great Place.Great Location!

by Jared on 02/20/2018
Great location. Really close to Kona, and local markets. Great access and right on the ocean.

Great place for Kona area stay

by Jane on 02/18/2018
We had a great stay at this condo just outside of Kona. The unit is in very nice condition, immaculately clean, and has a beautiful golf course view with the ocean in the background. We loved sitting on the the lanai watching all the interesting birds in the tree right outside the unit. The location is perfect - away from the bustle of Kona proper but close enough for a quick trip in for restaurants and shops. Don’t miss the snorkeling at Kahaluu Beach Park just up the road from the Keahou Akahi. Loads of colorful fish plus green sea turtles. Amazing! This was our first trip to Hawaii and we found a winner on this stay. Aloha and Mahalo! Date of Stay: 2/8/18 to 2/12/18

Great House in a Great Location

by Michelle on 02/18/2018
Great house for a getaway with my fiancee and six other friends. The house was beautiful, comfortable, and a really excellent home base for exploring the island. Very close to the airport and Costco, not far from downtown Kona, and it is halfway up the hill to Hwy 190, making it convenient to Saddle Road, and really easy to avoid Kona traffic when trying to get to the South Island sights. This house is also very well stocked with amenities that made our trip really great. The kitchen has plenty of cookware, there was a grill for cooking up fresh tuna, extra beach towels, and even some extra beach chairs, snorkels, and boogie boards & pool noodles available for us to use. I don't think the boogie board and pool noodles are guaranteed (in case they break or get thrown away), but there were fun beach toys which really improved our stay on the island. The office called when we arrived to make sure everything was going well, and called the morning of check-out to remind us what time we had to vacate. Everyone I talked to was really friendly. Great house, great location, no complaints. Date of Stay: 2/10/18 to 2/17/18

Surf and Racquet is our favorite place in Kona

by Hal on 02/18/2018
We have stayed in a variety of units here, always on the ground floor. The unit was very well maintained and appointed. Comfortable. Well laid out for cooking, eating, and such. Because of the berm in the lawn, the view from the lanai, when seated, was obscured a bit. We would have preferred a lower table and chairs on the lanai as they are more comfortable for us but that would have compromised the view. The assigned parking spot is close-by, too. Close to the best snorkeling on the island (Kahaluu). The access to the highway is excellent, especially southwards towards Captain cook, Punaluu Bakery, and the Volcano. We will be back. Date of Stay: 1/30/18 to 2/13/18

All the Comforts of Home Plus an Amazing View!

by Dennis & Dianne on 02/18/2018
This unit has everything you could want and need for a visit to the Big Island! The condo has a stunning view of the ocean from the lanai and MBR. It's a quiet unit although there is definitely noise from the ocean hitting the beach. It has a great location, with a five-minute walk to Kailua Village where shops and restaurants are available. The unit has been remodeled and is equipped with new appliances, Wi-Fi, flat screen TV's, and everything you will need if you plan to make your own meals. The lanai is a perfect size for having morning coffee, sunning, or just relaxing with a good book. Boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, and anything else you might want for a beach adventure is included. You can't miss with this rental! Date of Stay: 2/9/18 to 2/19/18

Great holiday home for our group!

by Linda on 02/17/2018
Aloha! We had an amazing time at this beautiful home overlooking the ocean. Location was great... had neighbours but felt like we were in our own little paradise! The house had everything we needed... towels, bathroom and kitchen supplies etc.. and lots of space for our party of 8. Loved the pool area and lots of lounge chairs... also enjoyed the hot tub at night watching the sunset. Much to our surprise there was a gas and charcoal BBQ. Amazing smell of burgers, ribs, wings and steak on a charcoal barbecue! No issues and would highly recommend this property to others. David the concierge was very helpful with booking our tours for us. He was just a phone call away when we had any questions and he also called us a few times before our trip to offer his services which we gladly excepted. We did an ATV tour which was a lot of fun but we were a little disappointed with the helicopter tour. We did the Circle Of Fire Tour showing the volcano and a small waterfalls but it did not compare with the helicopter tour we did on Maui which showed all the beauty of the valleys and water falls on that island. Make sure you really know what you want/expect to see on the island and that you book a tour that will show you those things! Mahalo to all that made our holiday on Big Island a vacation to remember! Date of Stay: 2/2/18 to 2/9/18

Amazing property

by Sara on 02/17/2018
This house was perfect for our group - we had two couples and a family of three. We had plenty of space, bedrooms, and bathrooms. The property is very clean and the upgraded kitchen is wonderful (although our “resident chef” was disappointed by very dull knives, less than stellar pans, and a lack of a baking sheet - other than those things the kitchen was fully stocked and very user friendly). The outside area is fantastic. The pool was clean and the view and sunsets are incredible. Great to have A/C. Kona coast was very responsive to questions (the only thing they didn’t get to us was a couple more beach towels - we had 7 in our group and only 5 beach towels... we made it work). Minor complaints aside, this is a wonderful place to stay. We’ve stayed in many vacation rentals and this is was one of the best! Date of Stay: 1/24/18 to 2/2/18

Very courteous and helpful staff

by Rhonda on 02/16/2018
The unit was very nice. It was not immaculately cleaned, but this is understandable due to the quick turnaround and reoccupation. All appliances work properly, and they are modern. The washer-dryer combo is small, but mighty. Excellent pool/spa facility. Beautiful walks with easy trekking to shopping and beaches. Very courteous and helpful staff.  Overall, a great vacation value.

Great Location/Great Value

by Douglas on 02/16/2018
Spent five days here after five days at a high end hotel. This was far better as it was larger, less expensive and much quieter. Amenities were good and home was well furnished. Appreciated the laundry facility in house and as we were on the third floor, elevator when packing groceries was grand. Will definitely try to rent here again.


by Samantha on 02/15/2018
We enjoyed an amazing vacation with the lovely accommodations at Kanaloa. I know we will return. Stayed: 2/15/18

We were very pleased

by Steve on 02/15/2018
Our condo was nice and clean. The view and beach was amazing. We were very pleased and would like to stay again. Date of Stay: 1/23/18 to 2/10/18

Lots of aloha in the details

by Kristen on 02/14/2018
We couldn’t have been happier with our stay at Hale Akoa. We were absolutely impressed with the house, the decor of the house and the cleanliness. The house was beautiful with a stunning view. You could tell that the owners really cared about the house, it was stylishly decorated and perfectly cared for. Lots of aloha in the details. The house had lots of space for everyone with big rooms and we loved how the living room opened up completely onto the lanai. The house was also perfectly managed, it was very clean and it had anything and everything we could want or need. We enjoyed cooking big meals for the group in the huge kitchen that had everything a cook would need. Truly, there was nothing that was missing. Kona Coast Vacations, thanks for making everything perfect for our vacation! Date of Stay: 1/27/18 to 2/3/18

Really nice condo, clean, well apponice location

by Jeff on 02/14/2018
Very nice condo- Clean, comfortable, well appointed. Close to town, convenient base for sight seeing on west side of the island .

Great house in private neighborhood

by Spencer on 02/14/2018
Great house in private neighborhood. The pool, lanai, and outdoor space were perfect for our family. It does get quite warm in the afternoons, but cools back down at night. Overall a great place to stay with easy access to Kona. Date of Stay: 1/29/18 to 2/3/18


by Bryan on 02/14/2018
Great place to stay with a group. Make sure you have transportation. Date of Stay: 2/5/18 to 2/10/18

LOVED this cond

by Kim on 02/14/2018
Our group of 3 couples + 1 baby LOVED this condo. The condo is situated so that you can see the ocean from the common living area + master bedroom. It's in a convenient location (20 - 30 min drive from Kona airport), has a grocery store nearby (Foodland), and a couple of beaches nearby. The pool with adjacent bar / restaurant was also convenient since you could watch the sunset there. Top notch appliances and fully stocked kitchen made it easy to cook meals. The DVD player was a bit old (so picture quality was not great), but we brought our AppleTV, so that worked out fine. I'd highly recommend this condo to others, and I'm definitely going to try to come back again! Date of Stay: 1/27/18 to 2/3/18

fit our group of eight perfectly

by Kevin on 02/14/2018
The Kona Bay Beachhouse fit our group of eight perfectly. We were surprised at the abundance of amenities, including towels, beach chairs and coolers. The kitchen was equally well supplied. The property has ocean views from several rooms as well as an endless supply of outdoor space, We never felt cramped. The best part of the house was walking a few feet to the beach and a nice trail that led to the Old Airport park. We were also very close to town for dining and shopping. The house seemed a little expensive at first, but after dividing it by four couples, it was a bargain. We'd do the trip again soon if we could. Date of Stay: 1/30/18 to 2/6/18

Wonderful to be right on the ocean!

by Winston on 02/14/2018
Wonderful to be right on the ocean! By far the most well-stocked Airbnb we've stayed in, didn't need to worry about any supplies. Hosts were available to help with questions. Place was clean, and store across the highway. Down side is it's right on the highway, so bedrooms 2 and 3 are noisy, trash truck at 4:30am, surfers congregating at 6:00am. Otherwise it's a great place, and we recommend. Date of Stay: 1/26/18 to 2/1/18

Great Property

by Nathan on 02/13/2018
This property was super clean, very spacious, and well appointed. Awesome views, very nice neighborhood, and quick access down to the Keauhou shopping center for groceries and some great restaurants like Sam Choy's. Would absolutely recommend this property for anyone wanting to stay in the Kailua-Kona area. This is the first time we've stayed South of town and we really enjoyed it. Kona Coast Vacation Rentals was great to work with and super accommodating. They even went out of their way to bring over extra lounge chairs for the pool for our guests. As an owner of a larger management company I can say I was impressed with their service and would certainly rent from them again. It was easy to understand why they have such a good rating online. Date of Stay: 1/27/18 to 2/9/18

Great Kona condo!

by Sandra on 02/12/2018
Fantastic location, with great ocean views and a coffee shop just a minutes walk away. Condo was super clean and had everything we needed for a great family stay. Pool and BBQ areas are lovely. Will definitely stay here again! Date of Stay: 12/27/17 to 1/17/18


by Jeanine on 02/10/2018
Everything was great. Good instructions on how to find the unit, unit was exactly as described. Finding parking spot took a while, maybe misunderstood directions, arrived at around midnight. Close proximity to downtown was a plus. Would stay there again.

Cleanest most gorgeous place I have ever stayed in

by Marie on 02/10/2018
The views where breathtaking I’m a late sleeper but all 3 days I woke up at 7am without an alarm just to have breakfast at sunrise watching the water on the balcony ..it was serine.. and it has most amenities besides the food you eat and drinks you need.. Everything was so clean and cozy.. Date of Stay: 2/6/18 to 2/9/18

Clean, well-stocked condo in a great location

by Mark on 02/09/2018
The condo was perfect for my wife and I. Condo was spacious and nicely appointed. The landscaping within the complex was extremely well-tended as well as the entire surrounding area. Great location with easy access to restaurants, groceries, shopping, and gas. The unit is not on the ocean, but we took a 15 minute walk almost every evening to Buddha Point to view the ocean sunset. The beautiful pool is a very short walk away. Restaurants are expensive. We got in a pattern of breakfast in, lunch out, and grabbing prepared food at Queens Market for dinner. Probably the best beach on the island, Hapuna Beach, is only a 15 minute drive to the north. If we return, we would definitely choose this unit again. Date of Stay: 1/22/18 to 2/2/18

Lovely, quiet location

by Nancy on 02/09/2018
We enjoyed this quiet location away from the commercial zones further north. The small shopping center just down the road had grocery store and restaurants (we enjoyed the brew pub) The condo is well equipped. The beach sun tent was a nice surprise. We spent a lot of time on the lanai, enjoying the bird activity and the view of the golf course and water. Communication with Kona Coast was excellent before and during our stay. Date of Stay: 2/1/18 to 2/5/18

Fantastic... Beautiful

by Bart on 02/09/2018
This property was a very nice property, and met or exceeded our exceptions. The property was clean and well taken care of. If when we go back to The Big Island we will try and stay at this same property.


by Anonymous on 02/09/2018
Lovely Condo in Kona. Beautiful ocean view from the lanai. We kept the door open all night and fell asleep to the sounds of waves crashing. Short drive or long walk to most restaurants in town. Loved staying there!

Very nice condo, well decorated and fully equipped

by Robert on 02/09/2018
We very much enjoyed staying at this unit. It is large and spacious with lots of windows. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped, and we enjoyed cooking in a couple of nights. There are two gas grills nearby, which we took advantage of. The condo and neighborhood was also very quiet which we very much appreciated. One major complaint - the dryer was a big problem. Made terrible noises and it turns out it ruined a couple items of our clothing. We called maintenance, and someone came out the next day and told us not use it anymore since a new part needed ordering. It would have been nice if the previous renters had informed management about the problem so it could have been fixed before we checked in. I am surprised that the cleaning crew would not have been aware, especially if they use the washer / dryer to clean towels. It should have been reported. Beyond that, all else was good. Response from tech support for the internet connection was great and we had no issues after an initial hiccup. Very friendly and very professional. Location wise, we also appreciated being not too far for a pleasant walk to the beach for sunsets. Waikoloa is a beautiful resort area with quite a bit of housing diversity options. We were happy with our choice and would return in the future. We will likely opt for an ocean view place next time, rather than being on the golf course.

Wonderful spot

by Anne on 02/08/2018
This place was wonderful; clean and comfortable with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The pool was a great spot to land at the end of the day. The deck provided a beautiful view of the sunrise and the ocean. Kona Coast Vacations provided a helpful person to whom we could turn with any questions or concerns. Date of Stay: 1/25/18 to 1/29/18

Lovely home away from home

by Ted & Pat on 02/07/2018
Perfect ocean view.

Great Location!

by Tracy on 02/06/2018
We stayed at this wonderful property for 2 weeks January 2018. Since we were travelling with seniors, we were delighted that its entry is ground level. It has a fabulous west facing lanai over looking the golf course. It was the perfect shady spot to read, watch the golfers, Nene and spectacular sunsets. The location is great for walking to restaurants and grocery store. We also did short drives to the ocean front for snorkeling and scenic areas for hiking The furnishings were clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped for our chef. Thank you for a wonderful holiday! Date of Stay: 1/5/18 to 1/18/18

Beautiful, comfortable and pleasent!

by Aaron on 02/05/2018
A great place for big family gathering. Detail oriented management, quick response and courteous services. The hot water supply was quite limited. The water from the shower heads was too spread out. Cleaning fee (over $400) was excessive.

Nicely done unit

by Rosemary on 02/04/2018
Overall very nice place and quiet!

Great Condo

by Shirley on 02/03/2018
Stayed in this condo for a month. Very nicely furnished and great location. Convenient to pool. Short walk to snorkeling beach and grocery store and restaurants. Great location!

The views were amazing

by Barbara on 01/31/2018
This is a great vacation spot for 2 couples - 2 private bedrooms both with private bathrooms. The kitchen is very modern and has everything. There was no need for us to buy any paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, etc.) - this was appreciated. The views were amazing, particularly the sunsets. Everything was wonderful. Date of Stay: 1/6/18 to 1/13/18

great pool and hot tub on the lanai

by Christine on 01/31/2018
This home is in a very quiet neighborhood with a great pool and hot tub on the lanai. The layout worked great for two couples giving us privacy with bedrooms on each side of the house. Very convenient location to snorkeling, beaches, grocery stores, dining and sunshine. We'll be back. Date of Stay: 1/16/18 to 1/25/18

Great view great house

Great Sunset View

by Ed on 01/31/2018
Great Sunset view, soft sounds of the surf, and a "home away from home" feel to this unit. Date of Stay: 1/14/18 to 1/20/18

Very nice condo in a great location! Date of Stay: 1/18/18 to 1/22/18

This is a great place

by Joan on 01/31/2018
This is a great place. One of the best I've ever stayed in. I am an Airbnb super host myself and this place has so many thoughtful touches! I can't list them all so the big ones are: super clean, fans in every room plus on the lanai, nice furniture and decor. extra pillows, sheets and towels. There were four of us, we cooked every meal during our 7 day stay and had plenty of dishes. Big fridge with ice maker, big kitchen with plenty of room to sit inside or out. Lovely extras like novels, cookbook, cards, sunscreen, some spices, fins, beach chairs and umbrellas. Washer and dryer! plus my favorite, an old fashioned accordian style clothing rack to hang towels and bathing suits on. Location is great. The beach is just across the street, you can see it from the Lanai and watch the sunset every night. We were there at high season so lots of people staying next door and behind us as well as the complex we were in but it was quiet. There is the sweetest little black kitty that hangs out. If you have extra food the lifegaurds on the beach are always hungry and grateful for any donations. They have a trailer with a fridge for when they take their breaks. We gave them a box of fruit and dairy that we had left. I for one can not throw food away. There are also numerous homeless around as well, I noticed every plate of food I put out at night was gone by morning.(at the beach and the little church next to the beach) Date of Stay: 1/11/18 to 1/18/18

Excellent location

by Campbell on 01/31/2018
Excellent location only 5min drive from Kona . Had everything you could ask for in a self catering unit . Overall property was fantastic with friendly staff . Kona coast vacations were very quick to respond to any questions . Would have no hesitation in recommending the property or Kona coast vacations . Date of Stay: 1/13/18 to 1/20/18

Amazing location and view

by Kathy on 01/31/2018
Amazing location and view. The pool is Amazing as well as the layout of the house. Plenty of room to lounge visit and enjoy the sunset. Date of Stay: 1/20/18 to 1/27/18

Location can't be beat!

by Marie on 01/31/2018
We really enjoyed our stay here and the location can't be beat. It is less than a minute' s walk across the street to one of the best snorkel beaches on the big island. The balcony has a lovely ocean view and the suite itself is very comfortable and clean. Our only disappointment is that we didn't book a longer stay! Date of Stay: 1/19/18 to 1/22/18

Kona Coast Vacations was wonderful to work with

by Colleen on 01/31/2018
Kona Coast Vacations was wonderful to work with, and David from Kona Concierge was super helpful and found us amazing things to do on the island for a reasonable price. Would definitely go w both of these companies again. Great experience! Date of Stay: 1/20/18 to 1/27/18

I couldn't imagine a lovelier home!

by Ashley on 01/31/2018
Aloha! This home was absolutely perfect for our 10-day family vacation to The Big Island! We were able to explore just about the entire island; having Akoa Place as our home base made it all so convenient. I couldn’t imagine a lovelier home! Mahalo, Lawless Family Date of Stay: 1/2/18 to 1/12/18

Great view of Kailua Bay and Kona

by Elspeth on 01/31/2018
Nice one bedroom unit, spacious, airy and light with a fantastic view of Kona/Kailua Bay. Very well maintained grounds, pool and BBQs.

Wow, Amazing, Breathtaking, Ocean views for miles!

by Kimberly on 01/30/2018
This house is immaculate. The views go on and on for miles. We had family join us for a total of 8 people. Our ages ranged from 60 to 19. I can tell you no matter what age we all had a blast. Plenty of room for us to hide if we needed down time. The pool and outside lanai were used the most. This home is exactly as shown in the pictures. Kinda funny we like to get out and explore but we all felt guilty for leaving this house. I would highly recommend. So many provisions were provided with the rental it made our vacation almost stress free. Thank you Kona coast for making this a great experience. The welcoming gift basket was nice and thoughtful. We did have a problem with the code and I can tell you that the after hours emergency number not only worked but had us in the house in no time at all. We also experienced a shower door that kept coming off it's hinge a quick call to maintenance and a few ours later it was like new. I also want to give a shout out to David our concierge. David arranged some super great trips at discounted prices for us. Thank you!! What can I say this rental thought of everything. Thanks, Smith family Date of Stay: 1/19/18 to 1/28/18


by Mary on 01/30/2018
We were very pleased with the studio we stayed in. Everything we needed was there, clean and easy to get to all the sights we wanted. The birds were amazing , the view breathtaking. Perfect for our vacation, we will return!

Very Good

by Juanita on 01/30/2018
Very good, the house was perfect for 4 couples. There could have been better cutlery, bigger toaster and better coffee maker. Date of Stay: 1/16/18 to 1/26/18

Perfect place for 3 couples

by Rod on 01/30/2018
We really enjoyed our stay at 333 Mauni Lani Villages! The house had everything we needed. Well stocked with everything, towels, bedding, dishes, even beach chairs, cooler, umbrellas etc. It was a beautiful place! Perfect area, close to the shops for supplies. Beach was beautiful with great snorkelling. The house is set up perfect for 3 couples or a large family. Each bedroom has an ensuite and large closets. We had trouble with bbq tank the first day, all we had to do was call and another was delivered. Would definitely rent again!

Awesome Ocean view condo

by Edward on 01/30/2018
Comfortable and well stocked condo with incredible ocean views from the shady lanai. The interior was lively and clean with great amenities . Location of condo was perfect; close to Kona village but not in crowded part of town. Easy access and parking was no problem. Date of Stay: 1/21/18 to 1/25/18

Perfect Accomodation in Waikoloa

by Alice on 01/28/2018
We love this Apartment,with a View on the Golfclub and the Sea. Years ago we were in this same Location,which is now renovated.You have all the things you need to feel comfortable.We hope to come back soon.

Perfect place with great snorkeling!

by Jeffrey on 01/28/2018
Amazing house in perfect location. Great snorkeling at the beach just across the street. Hope to stay there again! Date of Stay: 1/17/18 to 1/22/18

Excellent in Every Way

by Bruce on 01/27/2018
This is a beautiful unit in a very friendly building. The location right next to Magic Sands beach is perfect allowing quick beach excurtions without using the car. The interior has been renovated providing lots of counter space for easy meal preparation. Oodles of cupboards for storage and a large bathroom with ample shower. Bed very comfortable. Good to have a car for shopping and site seeing. No restaurants or grocery stores nearby. Date of Stay: 1/13/18 to 1/28/18

We felt like we had come to a resort in this room!

by Michael on 01/26/2018
We have changed our favorite place in Kona to Sea Village. I adored the room and decor which was stunning and relaxing. The view from the deck was amazing and we did see yellow tang and blue fish from the deck. We were close to everything in Kona and all the snorkeling you could want. This stay really was saving the best for last. Date of Stay: 1/19/18 to 1/22/18


by Louise on 01/25/2018
Great! Kitchen had all we needed. Beautiful lanai. Good to be across the street from a great snorkel beach. Suggestions: Only the master bedroom had drawers to put clothes. The smaller bedrooms had no dressers, just closets and the bedroom with 2 beds had a closet with lots of beach gear and not much room for clothing. The storage cabinet was locked so the only space was the bedside table or floor. It's nice to unpack your suitcase and feel at home. Also the two beds were shorter than a twin size. The last day we figured out you can move the headboards to get a few more inches. Date of Stay: 1/14/18 to 1/21/18

Fantastic Vacation

by Chris on 01/24/2018
The vacation unit was truly fantastic from the décor to the cleanliness to the great views

Love this place

by Angie on 01/24/2018
We rent a lot of VRBO type of homes and own one ourselves. It's hard to find a good management company, but this one is great. They stock the essentials well such as paper towels, soaps, sponge, etc. There were a couple small repairs needed and they were quick and friendly about it. The condo was very clean and well taken care of. Thank you to the owners for stocking the kitchen with everything needed including good knives, pans and tupperware. Those items are almost never in a typical rental because tenants destroy everything. The view here is the best! Even the pillows in the master are very comfortable. If I were to ask for anything it would just be personal preference items such as a queen bed instead of twins in the 2nd room and a larger frying pan. The complex recently redid the pool too since our last visit. I highly recommend this unit. I don't say that about many places. We loved our stay and I could see us coming back here again!!

Great Stay!

by Robert on 01/24/2018
Our stay at Kona Pacific condos was great. We loved the condo and appreciated the fact that all the paper products were sufficient. Great location, quiet but close enough to walk to eating establishments. Date of Stay: 1/15/18 to 1/23/18

Magnificent way to spend your time on the island!

by Anonymous on 01/23/2018
We fell in love with IO way the moment we arrived, and were never disappointed! It is the most peaceful place to be at! From the views to the pool to the hot tub, we loved coming home at the end of a busy day and just relaxing! The rooms were perfect for our family, and the kitchen was stocked with many high-end appliances and extras. I would stay there again if I could! Even though it's not on the beach, we actually enjoyed the view better, and loved getting away from the crowds. David at Kona Concierge did a fabulous job of picking out the best activities for us. The morning snorkel and dolphin cruise was fabulous, and they even stopped so we could follow a mama and baby whale! Ate dinner at Jackie Rey's at the recommendation of the property managers, and it was excellent!

Great stay. The condo was perfect for us.

by Carmen on 01/20/2018
The condo was a perfect spot for us to enjoy our visit to the "Big Island." Beds were comfortable, linens and towels were new, healthy assortment of appliances and kitchen utensils. Was really nice to see, and to be able to use, the assortment of beach toys - thanks, nice touch. Having turtles regularly visit the beach directly under the lanai was a thrill. Date of Stay: 1/7/18 to 1/21/18

Super Condo - home way from hme

by Jeff on 01/19/2018
We have stayed at other units here at Casa de Emdeko but we really like this unit. It is very clean, well maintained and cosy. It was not as close to the salt water pool as other units and is therefore a little more quiet. It has all the conveniences including dishwasher, fridge, stove and HD TV Perfect location for a nice vacation. Date of Stay: 12/27/17 to 1/20/18


by Susan on 01/18/2018
Beautiful oceanfront Location. House was well equipped and everything in working order. Quiet neighborhood. Quick drive to Kona or a 10-15 min. Walk. Management company excellent as well. Date of Stay: 1/8/18 to 1/14/18

Really a great place and a great value.

by Dianna on 01/17/2018
We were very happy and comfortable in this unit. It is very well equipped in every way. We enjoyed sunsets from our lanai. We cooked most of our meals here and found nothing lacking. Our concierge, David, was attentive and very helpful. Would certainly return. Date of Stay: 1/4/18 to 1/16/18

very nice, very useful

by Mieko on 01/17/2018
Though the kitchen was flooded a caused clogged drain pipe after our arrival, the repair staff came soon. And wine opener and can opener were broken, but brought us new ones soon. They took care of us well. All belongings are enough, well equipped, we're so satisfied totally. Date of Stay: 12/16/17 to 12/26/17

Great stay

by Lisa on 01/16/2018
This unit was very large and comfortable. The service was wonderful - when we realized 2 chairs were missing from the balcony, they were brought within a couple of hours. The kitchen was well stocked and the view from the balcony is amazing. We saw dolphins in the bay and a couple of whale spouts. You cannot swim in the ocean from the unit due to high surf and rocky access, but the pool is warm. Date of Stay: 1/6/18 to 1/13/18

Great Service From Kona Coast, Property was OK

by Christopher on 01/16/2018
After having been BURNED by another rental company and owner, we were VERY HAPPY with the proactive, responsive, accurate and attentive service of the Kona Coast team. We rented 2 units from them, both were as advertised and the kitchens were well equipped. There were also boogy boards to use, camping chairs, coolers, etc. Of course, the prices were premium during the high season and I would not normally have paid what we did for what was offered. But fair is fair and the Kona Coast team was great. Date of Stay: 12/22/17 to 1/1/18

Spectacular views

by Ryan on 01/15/2018
If you want a spacious with all the comforts place to stay with spectacular views this is a place to stay. Checkin and check out was extremely efficient and pleasurable. Date of Stay: 12/25/17 to 1/4/18

Really cool spot

by Michael on 01/15/2018
Really cool spot. Will try to book again if I come back. They have Tupperware, sandwich bags, all kinds of little things that I’ve never seen at an AirBnB before that made it really feel like home. Date of Stay: 1/2/18 to 1/7/18

We were very happy and pleased!!

by Tracy on 01/15/2018
Overall, the photos and description are as promised! The condo was very clean, included all stated amenities and was beautiful. Prior to arrival the communication was very good and responsive to our inquiries. Getting to and from "downtown/main street" was very easy. Although only about 6 miles away, the amount of time to travel varied on time of day and route. We were very happy and pleased!! Date of Stay: 12/24/17 to 1/4/18

Stunning view and crashing waves

by Sandra on 01/15/2018
This property is so well located, just a short walk to the restaurants and shops on Ali's drive. The condo is right on the ocean and we saw dolphins and whales from the balcony. It also is perfect for watching the sunset in the evening. There is ample parking, the suite has a washer and dryer. The linens were very clean. We mostly cooked only breakfasts and the kitchen was well appointed. There were beach chairs, an umbrella and beach towels which we really appreciated. It is not a 5 star all inclusive resort but we wanted a place that we could make a comfortable home base that wasn't pretentious and this was perfect along with a stunning view and crashing waves. Date of Stay: 12/22/17 to 1/5/18

This house is beautiful and in an excellent location

by Matthew on 01/15/2018
This house is beautiful and in an excellent location to explore Hawaii Island. The house did not disappoint as the amenities and descriptions were as advertised, enabling our extended family to enjoy our vacation while enjoying BBQ, oceanside relaxation and lots of space. Kona Coast manages the place well, instructions and communication is overall clear and the team is very proactive before, during and after our stay. While there were one or two minor issues, those are to be expected when renting a house. Overall, I recommend highly both this property and Kona Coast Vacations management. Date of Stay: 12/22/17 to 1/3/18

Beautiful Ocean View Unit!

by Weiping on 01/15/2018
We really enjoyed to stay this ocean view unit! We sit in balcony and watched whales and dolphins in the open ocean and it was very nice experience for us and made our holidays more wonderful. Very well managed vacation unit: clear instruction with greeting from the company in the first night, equipped a lot necessary items even chairs for beach use, clean room and much more. The location is excellent. We walked in the streets at nights. We will stay this unit again if we come to the Big island in the future. Date of Stay: 1/6/18 to 1/9/18

Great floor plan

by Brent on 01/15/2018
The condo was better than expected. Lots of space and a great floor plan. Date of Stay: 12/15/17 to 1/4/18

Great experience

by Greg on 01/15/2018
Our stay at Waikoloa Fairways C217 was a great experience. The condo has a great floor plan, was very clean and well appointed. Our family of five had plenty of room. While a bit of a drive is required to get to beaches, the value outweighs the inconvenience. Would stay here again. Date of Stay: 12/28/17 to 1/8/18

Very nice and spacious

by Laura on 01/15/2018
Very nice and spacious. Everything you will need and withing walking distance to main Kona. Date of Stay: 12/2917 to 1/9/18

by Woo on 01/15/2018
Very professional, provides everything needed for a short stay. Super clean, good location, nice oceans views and pretty spacious. Date of Stay: 1/3/18 to 1/8/18

Great vacation rental!

by Melissa on 01/15/2018
I would stay here again. Very nice grounds, friendly and very quiet neighbors all around. The unit itself was gorgeous. No major issues, plenty of beach towels, very good amenities. Pool is beautiful. Walk to beach is about 15-20 minutes or so depending on route you choose. Date of Stay: 1/2/18 to 1/13/18

Very Clean

by Ed on 01/15/2018
House was very clean and well suited for eight people. There were minor problems ie Barbeque,propane screen doors that were dealt with quickly and efficiently. Hot tub took a little longer to resolve but completed to our satisfaction. All Kona staff were were polite and willing to help. We felt very secure in gated community and felt location was central to any of our needs. We would recommend Kona Coast Vacations for your vacation requirements. Date of Stay: 12/29/17 to 1/11/18

Awesome Stay on the Big Island

by Joel on 01/15/2018
Hali'i Kai is an excellent place to stay. It was a perfect location, close to restaurants and shops in the Waikoloa Beach area. The place was in tip-top condition, and had a wonderful patio to stare off into the ocean. I would absolutely stay here again on my next visit to the Big Island. Date of Stay: 1/7/18 to 1/11/18

Beautiful sunsets

by Helen on 01/15/2018
Would highly recommend Keauhou Resorts ... in particular unit 120! Beautiful sunsets and accommodations. Date of Stay: 12/20/17 to 1/3/18

Christmas holiday

by Marian on 01/15/2018
Very comfortable and beautiful property. We liked the split bedroom arrangement and the large open living area. It was perfect for a family holiday get together.

Waikoloa Colony Villas 303

by Wilda on 01/15/2018
Nice furniture, excellent location. gulf course view, nice size 2 story with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 very nice baths, garage available, cooling repaired on weekend, wonderful 2nd floor balcony, enjoyed Java,Java very enjoyable restaurant

Expectations - Exceeded!!

by Sharon on 01/11/2018
An absolute dream house. Where to start? First off, very much appreciated booking through VRBO and Kona Coast Vacations, no troubles at all with the booking and all information received for us to have an enjoyable 6 nights. The house is even better than the pictures. The owners clearly put a lot of thought into it. All pictures are accurate, but its so mich better to see first hand. 3 bedrooms, lots of indoor space. The kitchen is well eqipped. The outdoors reflects the beauty of the house, with infinity pool, jacuzzi, BBQ, lounge chairs and ample spaces to relax and take sun or enjoy the magnificent sun sets. The only downside is leaving. Truly want to take this house with me. Date of Stay: 1/6/18 to 1/12/18

Wonderful stay!

by Patricia & John on 01/11/2018
We just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful stay in our accommodations at Sea Village in early November 2017. We loved the condominium (2102), and the grounds including the pool, hot tub, and BBQ facilities. The location was perfect for us and we felt very comfortable and at home there. We hope to return to the Big Island sometime in 2019, probably February or March, and we are hoping to stay in the same condo, if possible. Once we have established a firm date, I will inquire again. I hope you are all doing well and Thank You so much ~ Mahalo ! ~ for the wonderful vacation stay. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Date of Stay: 11/2/17 to 11/10/17

Beautiful condo - Perfect for family vacations!

by Maribeth on 01/11/2018
We stayed at #401 Kona Bali Kai for our family vacation. The condo was perfect for our family of 4 (with two teenagers) and was perfectly located for a "home base" for our Big Island adventures. The condo is just as described and pictured . The view from the balcony is beautiful - there is a table and chairs and we enjoyed a number of meals on the balcony, enjoying the sounds of ocean surf and watching the surfers. The bedrooms and bathrooms had plenty of towels, and hairdryers were available. the Washer and Dryer certainly came in handy during our week-long vacation. Beds were quite comfortable, and there were ceiling fans and/or floor fans in every room. Two of the bedrooms do face the road and there was some street noise (although the kids slept fine!). There was a pool on property, although we did not use it during our stay. Everything was very clean, well maintained and nicely furnished. The communication with the rental agency was excellent - and we appreciated the concierge assistance with planning some activities while on the island! We were so glad to have found this condo for our vacation home and would highly recommend! Thank you! Date of Stay: 12/23/17 to 12/30/17

This place was great

by Laura on 01/10/2018
This place was great. It’s spacious and has a great lanai where you can sit out and see the ocean. The beach is a short walk away. It’s a quick drive into Kona where you can find plenty of restaurants and shops. The place itself was very clean. The building it’s in is quiet. There’s parking underneath the building. We felt very well taken care of and I definitely recommend. Date of Stay: 12/30/17 to 1/2/18

Wonderful home!

by Geraldine on 01/10/2018
We had a lovely vacation at Awamoa Place. The home is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting out on the lanais and enjoying the sunsets. The kitchen is well-equipped and we had some lovely meals during our stay. We had fun exploring the island, and appreciated the beach chairs and umbrellas that were available in the garage. We would love to return. We recommend this property. Date of Stay: 12/2817 to 1/6/18

Everything was great!

by Daniel on 01/10/2018
Everything was great and the house is beautiful. The property was more than adequate and everything we needed worked well. Two fan controllers were inoperative and the fans run continuously which was fine for us but a draw on the owners utility. One trim cover was removed so i assumed this has been addressed in the past or is in the process of repair. the two fans were in the front entry and over the dining. The only suggestion would be to have a few beach chairs to go along with the towels but not a big deal, we enjoyed our stay very much and will consider this property again and definitely contact Kona Coast Vacations next Hawaii visit. Date of Stay: 12/31/17 to 1/10/18

Lovely quiet location

by Meghan on 01/10/2018
We enjoyed our stay at this condo. The unit was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. It had a lot of beach gear which my kids really enjoyed. The complex was quiet and my kids loved the swimming pool.

Beautiful view of the ocean

by Cathy on 01/10/2018
Beautiful view of the ocean, daily surfers and sea turtles. Beautiful master and nice living, dining, and kitchen spaces. Pool and hot tub also. Upgrades would really be great to furniture and some attention to sliding doors and dishwasher. Date of Stay: 12/18/17 to 1/2/18

Did not want to leave.

by Kevin on 01/09/2018
The rental unit was up-to-date very beautiful and clean. Great location walking distance to town.

Modern clean and comfortable

by Charles on 01/09/2018
This unit was so comfortable. At first we were hoping to rent one of the units closer to the ocean ( 20 feet closer) but after listening to the crashing ocean day after day we were glad to be back a bit. We had the best seat in the house for relaxing quiet sunsets. One thing we look for is access to a BBQ when we rent. With this complex you have no fear of that. There are so few people the place is quiet, always have an empty pool area, so it feels like you have it all to yourself.The unit was clean and modern with everything you need to just settle in. It is also located close enough to downtown Kona that you could (we often did) walk to town although it is a 20 minute walk.We really enjoyed our stay at Kona Riviera #203. Oh and David, the concierge, was over the top in his suggestions and assistance in booking activities. He knows the companies that will look after you. Use his service, you can trust he will get you great memories. Date of Stay: 12/24/17 to 1/5/18

Awesome Kona Sunsets

by Michael on 01/06/2018
This house had a nice layour for our vacationing family of four (mom, dad, and 2 teenage daughters). Main floor has entry foyer, family room, and kitchen with a wall of glass doors to the west opening on to the lanai and infinity pool overloking the ocean view. Second floor has two bedrooms that share a bath to the east and the master suite with screened balcony alcoves looking once again to the ocean. We were cool enough to sleep with the ceiling fans and screened windows open during our 2 week stay over Christmas/New Years...not sure that would be the case in the summer months. Kitchen has a large pantry and almost enough cooking utensils...seemed we were always needing something. Pool is beautiful but was too cold to swim in for our family...once again winter months. Location is convenient to Kailua-Kona. Home is decorated with native Hawaiian décor that we found interesting. We did have an issue with the microwave oven and contacted Kona Coast Rentals. They were very attentive and replaced the microwave within an hour. Date of Stay: 12/221/17 to 1/4/18

Holiday at Kona Reef A37

by Steve on 01/06/2018
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Kona Reef in A37. The location was fantastic, the views were excellent. The unit was well stocked with everything you would need...the only thing missing was some utensils for the barbecue. The experience as a whole was a border line 4+ star and the only reason why I don't rate it a 5 is that the unit does need some upgrades primarily to the bathrooms, and a deep cleaning...again to the bathrooms. The twin bedded bedroom could use a curtain to black out the light as well. BuI was impressed with KCV, they do a good job calling to check in prior to and upon you departure to see how its going. Date of Stay: 12/23/17 to 1/2/18

gorgeous expansive ocean view

by Robert on 01/06/2018
The condo was a perfect size for the two of us. It had every amenity we could have wanted including two bathrooms! Being on the golf course resulted in a beautiful setting with a sunset every night and expansive ocean view beyond the course. I would tend to warn anyone considering this unit to be aware of the early morning maintenance (manicuring) of the course, and sometimes at odd times during the day. It didn't bother us, generally, but might be of concern to anyone wanting total serenity at all hours. This unit did not offer any 'leftovers' from previous renters (such as sugar, flour, spices, coffee, canned or boxed goods, etc.), as we have encountered with every other condo we've rented in the Kona area. Not sure why, but another thing to keep in mind upon arrival in the event you assumed there might be a tad of coffee grounds in the freezer to get your started the next morning, for instance. You might want to make a stop to pick up anything you will want that following day in the event the time difference makes it slow-going in the morning. Overall, we would rent this unit again if is available the next time around. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with the comfort, the quality of the unit, or the location. Close to everything needed, yet not in the midst of the chaos closer to Kona village. Date of Stay: 12/23/17 to 1/2/18

Excellent View unit that is greatly furnished

by Patrick on 01/05/2018
This is an Excellent View unit that is greatly furnished with everything you will ever need for your stay. The View is fantastic A+. I think one of the best that is on this property, with a view of the Pool and the Ocean and coastline looking North towards Kona. You will not be disapointed with this unit as it is one of the best VRBO units we have rented anywhere. Date of Stay: 12/24/17 to 1/4/18


by Ryan on 01/05/2018
Unbelievable property. You won’t regret staying here amazing views great ambiance nothing bad to say at all. The concierge service was also great, used them to book a fishing trip and also got some great tips for hiking. Definitely staying here again. A hui hou. Date of Stay: 12/15/17 to 12/20/17

We give Alii Villas #227

by Fred on 01/04/2018
The condominium is very tastefully furnished, has a very good view of the ocean, and is conveniently located. The entire condominium was very clean and well maintained. The barbeque was convenient for cooking seafood dinners, and other Alii Villa residents we saw were friendly. We would like to return and stay for a longer period next time. David was very helpful in sending information and suggestions in advance of the visit. Date of Stay: 12/4/17 to 12/9/17

Upgraded condo is home-away-from-home

This condo is centrally located, with easy access to local grocery and other stores. The condo has modern, upgraded amenities and is in excellent condition.

Fantastic family or group vacation home

by Denise on 01/03/2018
The house was even better than the pictures. Two large living rooms, 4 bedrooms, and numerous outdoor spaces. We had 9 in our group, and we were very comfortable. The pool isn't huge, but was large enough to float around in, and the hot tub was great - also a really nice side yard. House is in a neighborhood, but has a long driveway and feels quite private. House was very clean and well-stocked. Our group also REALLY appreciated the assistance in planning our vacation from David of Kona Concierge. Highly recommended! Date of Stay: 12/17/17 to 12/27/17

we loved our stay in this apartment

by Tanja on 01/02/2018
We enjoyed our stay very much. The place is big and nicley furnished. The kitchen has everything you need. We cooked 9/10 in the apartment, as we loved our balcony with the seaview so much. You can even sip on your drink while watching the sunset from the balcony. The view from the bedroom is also very nice - the ocean is smiling at you. The bed is one of the most COMFY ones we ever had. The own laundry facilities in the apt. were very handy as well. Date of Stay: 12/11/17 to 12/21/17

We have been here several times and we love it.

by Lissa on 01/02/2018
I never write reviews but I am writing this to give giant props to Asi at Kona Coast properties and the entire concierge staff. They allowed us to mail Christmas presents to their office for our children and were so accommodating when we were late. Asi took the time to bring the packages to us ON HER DAY OFF so our kids would have presents. So thoughtful. The unit is clean and has a comfortable bed. Everything works. There are no "extras" like beach chairs or a decent cooler etc... like you find in some of the units but it had all of the basics. Date of Stay: 12/24/17 to 1/3/18

Great House in Kona

by Phyllis on 01/01/2018
My family of eight rented this property for two weeks. It worked great for our family! It was spacious, had a great kitchen, 4 nice bedrooms with adjoining baths, and a spectacular view of the ocean. Great location in a gated community. Lovely neighborhood with sidewalks that make for great walking and running. I highly recommend this property! Date of Stay: 12/2/17 to 12/16/17

This is the ultimate pad in Kona, spacious, bright and sparkling clean! The deck is huge and perfect for morning coffee and afternoon drinks, would stay here again in a heartbeat! Date of Stay: 12/4/17 to 12/19/17

Great amenities and very quiet and spot for our first time in Kona.

by Kim on 12/31/2017
My husband and I stayed at Sea Village the week of 12/8-12/15. The condo was amazing with a great view of the bay each day. Great access to all the local spots for food and entertainment! Easy to find parking and easy to get in and out for our days adventures. We loved the space with lots of room to stretch out and enjoy ourselves from a fun days outing. Great amenities and very quiet and spot for our first time in Kona.

The condo itself has it all

by Tate on 12/31/2017
The condo itself has it all. Comfy beds, very convenient technology/computer/sound system and much much more. Walking distance to most things Kona. Great space, if there wasn’t so much to do outside it would be easy to stay in. Date of Stay: 12/12/17 to 12/17/17


by Sean on 12/31/2017
My girlfriend and I spent a week at the place with Kona Coast Vacations, and it was amazing. The space was clean, had all the amenities we needed, and was so close to the water that we could hear the waves with the door open all through the day and night, which was so relaxing. The building is also very centrally located in Kona, just a few minutes to the downtown area, so exploring on foot or by bike was very simple and easy. We were very encouraged to explore all the time because of how easy it was to get to and from the place. Great time overall! Date of Stay: 12/14/17 to 12/22/17

Location is perfect

by Carol on 12/31/2017
Location is perfect, the surfing beach is at backyard, and the famous white sand beach is half a mile away. The condo is clean, spacious, family friendly, a bunch of snorkeling equipment and beach towels provided. Date of Stay: 12/17/17 to 12/20/17

This is our second time with Sea Village

by Colleen on 12/31/2017
This is our second time with Sea Village, which is in a great location. It is a great place to spend the night, but plan on leaving all day because there is not much there. There is no shore access on the property, but beaches are nearby. Sunsets are great from the pool. Alii Street is a very busy traffic zone, but that comes with the territory. Green Flash Coffee is right there in front of Sea Village. Not only good coffee, but great healthy foods.

This place is better than the pictures shown!

by Peter on 12/31/2017
This place is better than the pictures shown! By far, the best Air B&B I have had the chance to stay in... Took my 84 year old mother and wife and they absolutely loved every minute we spent at the property. Every detail you can think of has been thought out by the owner... Impeccable in appearance and amenities... The view is stunning... Access to downtown Kona just an elevator ride away... Pool and outdoor BBQ on ground floor are great... The complex residents are superb. They are friendly and treat you like family... This place should be rated 6 stars!!! Thank you for having us and we look forward to being able to return in the future... Happy New Year!!! Thank you for an excellent stay... Date of Stay: 12/17/17 to 12/29/17

Great location!

by Cheri on 12/31/2017
Great location! This condo was comfortable, clean, and well supplied. We especially loved the Mountain View of the sunrise each morning on the Lanai. The hot tub and pool were so close to the condo we used it every day. Date of Stay: 12/18/17 to 12/30/17

The Ailina House was absolutely incredible!

by Shayan on 12/31/2017
The Ailina House was absolutely incredible! The view from the lanai and infinity pool was enjoyed by all each night. We were also very close to Safeway, Walmart, and Costco, so we were able to cook from home most meals. David, the concierge, was knowledgeable and very helpful in booking activities for us. We definitely recommend the dolphin excursion! Date of Stay: 12/11/17 to 12/18/17

Wonderful condo near Kona

by Peter on 12/30/2017
Great location just across from good snorkeling and surfing. Condo in excellent shape and grounds are very well kept. Nice small pool with view of ocean and well maintained. The condo kitchen had all necessary cooking utensils and great dishwasher. The lanai has wonderful view of the beach so you can watch the surfers. The shopping center with grocery store, Long’s drugs,movie theater and restaurants 5 minutes away is very convenient. Close to coffee and chocolate farms. A quick 10 minute drive to downtown Kona and all of its shops and restaurants is also a great feature. The street below is not noisy at night. It made for a wonderful family Christmas vacation.

Nicely decorated and appointed two bedroom condo

by Graham on 12/30/2017
We've stayed in Kona / Keauhou many times and really enjoy this location near the beaches, harbour and shopping center. The condo itself is wonderfully appointed with everything you could ever need (boogey boards / flashlights / tape etc). We really liked the ground level lanai and BBQ with spare propane. Chapeau to those managing this unit! Date of Stay: 12/19/17 to 12/30/17

Airbnb Review

by Leah on 12/27/2017
Amazing view and just a beautiful place! We would love to stay here again. Date of Stay: 12/14/17 to 12/20/17

Great Location

by Marti on 12/27/2017
I really loved our stay at Waikoloa Fairways A310. It was a great location and the condo was quite beautiful. It was larger than I thought it would be and I loved the decor and art work around. The setting was lovely. - overlooking the (quiet) golf course (with turkeys and baby nenes around the pond and a view of the distant water). The kitchen had everything we needed and we did several meals there. The bbq outside was in a lovely setting with hot tub and pool. I really appreciated that it was a small complex. I recommend it and would stay there again. Thank you! Date of Stay: 12/13/17 to 12/19/17

AirBnb Review

Excellent view, looks exactly like the photos. Location was very convenient, about 10 min from downtown Kona where all the shops and restaurants are. Date of Stay: 12/18/17 to 12/22/17

Perfect Location for families

by Kelly on 12/27/2017
Our family stayed 10 days at Heavens and it was the most relaxing, perfect, unbelievable vacation we have taken in a while.  We have been to the Oregon Coast, New York, Vegas and Alaska over the last 3 years and will rate this #1.  The pool and hot tub was the focal point for us because we all love the water and the sun.  Although the bar rates pretty high too.  The bedrooms were perfect for 10 of us.  We have 2 older kids who brought their fiances and the 2 separate rooms out back was perfect for them.  My wife and I of course stayed in the bigger master next to the pool and enjoyed post card sunsets every night.  Although the ocean was 3 miles away it seemed like it was right there.  We brought binoculars to look out at the cruise ships and other ocean views.  The convenient location was minutes from the beach and downtown.  We enjoyed thanksgiving around the large dining table and played games in the living room.  We had friendly Geckos visit us everyday while sitting out by the pool, FYI they love maraschino cherries.  I recommend this house to anyone and would be confidant they would do the same.  We plan to return as soon as we can.  Aloha from the Secls

Excellent Kona Vacation!

by Michelle on 12/26/2017
The house was perfect and David, our concierge, provided exemplary service! There were plenty of extras, i.e., towels and linens. The house was close to all the amenities and it's location made getting around easy. It was a great home to host younger kids as the pool and hot tub were a huge hit! I would highly recommend it to friends and family and we hope to return again in the future. The hot water in the master suite was a little tricky, but we figured it out after a few attempts.

Perfect Spot!

by Linda on 12/25/2017
Kona Bali Kai was the perfect spot to base our family of six for our first time to the Big Island. Not only was the condo clean and beautifully furnished, but was stocked with more than enough towels, linens, soaps and cleaning supplies, not to mention anything we needed in the kitchen. When we reported an issue with the washing machine it was quickly and professionally taken care of. Throughout the entire process from booking to checking out, Kona Coast Vacations was very pleasant to work with. I would not hesitate to book through your company the next time we visit Hawaii. Thank you so much for helping us to have the family vacation of a lifetime! Date of Stay: 12/13/17 to 12/20/17

Perfect Location for families

by Kim on 12/24/2017
A very nice home in the perfect location for families with young children. The only minor complaint was the pool heater didn’t work but not a big problem. Date of Stay: 11/24/17 to 12/8/17

Best spot in Kona

by Michelle on 12/24/2017
Great condo, within walking distanceto downtown, clean and well maintained, kitchen was well equipped, beach towels, beach chairs and a cooler were great to have. Definitely would stay here again and recommend to family and friends. Bonus was we met some really nice folk here too. Date of Stay: 11/20/17 to 12/20/17

Great view in a very quiet neighborhood

by Masanori on 12/23/2017
6 of us enjoyed this spacious home in a very quiet neighborhood in Kailua Kona. The view from the Lanai is fantastic and the home comes with full equipment for cooking, including a special coffee maker that brews excellent coffee! Date of Stay: 12/13/17 to 12/20/17

Awesome Vacation

by Celia on 12/22/2017
Our vacation was awesome. We had not been to the Big Island in many years and were surprised in the changes we found especially around the Kona area. Not a little "burg" anymore. The Kona Bay Estates 23 home was beautiful and so perfect for our family. We were NOT ready to leave. We explored beaches, the Volcano, green sand beach, black sand beach, Wiamia, Keck Observatory, Captain Cook's momument - we walked, hiked, kayaked, snorkeled and in general enjoyed our time at the house and nearby beach. We loved it! Thank you so much. Date of Stay: 12/13/17 to 12/20/17

True Ocean Front Well Kept Condo

by Hillary on 12/19/2017
Lovely condo with breathtaking views. Sit on the lanai and enjoy the sunset. You might even be lucky enough to see dolphins and whales while you are having dinner like we did. Exactly as pictured and described. Location was easy to find and we actually went by it the first time because it is so close to the Kona shops. For this unit, I would recommend parking at the front of the building in the outside parking because it is just a few steps to the unit so you can avoid the elevator. The kitchen is super well stocked if you chose to eat in. Lots of added touches like freezer beer cups, ice packs and tupperwear. Passed vacationers have also left oils, hot sauces and spices which made cooking easier. The unit has a dishwasher and washer/dryer which was a nice added bonus. We had an issue with a neighbour constantly smoking on the balcony so that was a bit annoying but when I called the rental company to complain they were extremely helpful. The unit was very clean and had shampoo and soap in the bathroom along with lots of towels and extra pillows. The outside box with beach essentials was extremely well stocked with new snorkel equipment, lots of chairs, umbrellas and a cooler. We were disappointed that the really nice white sand beaches are about 40 minutes North of this unit but that was our fault for not doing our research before the trip. Traffic was a nightmare because of the construction so it took about 90 minutes to drive home from Hapuna beach. The pool area was great though and there is a beach right next door but because of the dangerous surf we were not able to swim there. It was nice to watch the surfers from the pool area. A second pool key would be very helpful as you need it to get in and out of the pool area. Overall was very impressed with the unit. The building itself is a bit older but the unit has been upgraded and it obviously well taken care of. A nice added touch was David, the "Kona Concierge". He was great at providing tips for anything you want to do on the island. Although I booked our excursions myself it was a nice touch to be directly contacted by an individual since this unit is through a rental company. Don't hesitate to book this unit especially if you want easy access to the shops & resturants at Kona. Date of Stay: 12/12/17 to 12/15/17

Paradise Found in Waikoloa

by Sue on 12/18/2017
We had the pleasure of spending two weeks at the lovely condo in Waikoloa Villas. The unit is spacious and well equipped for a long or short stay, the grounds are well manicured and with 2 pools on site it made for a wonderful trip. The unit was clean and comfortable with an amazing view from the lanai, can't wait to get back!! Date of Stay: 5/13/17 to 5/27/17

Kona Vacation

by Mark on 12/18/2017
This house was excellent. There was nothing wrong with anything any time we needed anything they were very quick to get us anything we were missing or anything we needed help with. Very clean and very nice home. The pool was great as well as everything in the home. I have been to the Big Island 6 different times and this was the best place I have stayed by far. Date of Stay: 12/5/17 to 12/16/17


by Rebecca on 12/18/2017

Our stay was wonderful. I would recommend Kona Coast Vacations to all of our friends and family. Wonderful to work with!  The house was beautiful and Kona Coast Vacations made the trip very easy and welcoming. Thank you!  Date of Stay: 12/6/17 to 12/13/17


by Clancy on 12/18/2017
Stunning property all the bells. Pool is next door. Beach club is very nice. With such limited beach houses this is as close as it gets. Date of Stay: 12/12/17 to 12/19/17

Great location Great property Great service

by Judith on 12/18/2017
In short we wont be looking for another place to rent on our next visit unless this one is unavailable....... and more likely try plan our trip around the dates available WE were a little nervous about renting this unit at first because there were no reviews.... i guess because there were no complaints the unit was very clean well located & well supplied The beds were all comfortable with no indentations we enjoyed the steady ocean breeze this time of the year..... no air condition required. Kona Coast Vacations was a dream too deal with...... our main interaction was over the email and they left us without a single question or concern on our arrival.... If there name is connected to a rental you are considering I would suggest you google there company & Chq out the reviews One of the best decisions of this trip was using the concierge that was included with this unit..... in our case his name was David and he went way beyond the call of duty to help make our trip memorial. one thing we discovered on this trip was the value of pre-booking...... we didn't have to waste time once we arrived on our holiday and we were able to book every event we wanted before they were sold out The complex has 4 or 5 barbecues that are in good condition and fed with natural gas so you will never run out. The secret is out.... these guys deserve a thumbs up. We had a great Visit.... if you say here you will too. Date of Stay: 12/7/17 to 12/13/17

Well-equiped, clean and comfortable!

by Sarah on 12/17/2017
We had a fantastic time at Waikaloa Villa. I thought the property was actually a lot nicer than the pictures show. It was super clean, the loft space is gorgeous and this was definitely the best-stocked kitchen of the three places we stayed at on the island. We also appreciated having the boogy-boards there for our use. (We actually used one as a make-shift baby gate by sticking it between the rails of the first step to the upstairs loft). The place was super kid friendly and we felt very relaxed letting our one year old and 4 year old nephew have the run of the house and the lanai. The pool and hot tub were lovely and the BBQs were top notch for grilling local fish! Only drawback is that the location can be a bit windy but a short drive to some gorgeous beaches seems to take you quickly out of the wind tunnel. You can't beat this place for the price! Highly reccommend! Date of Stay: 11/25/17 to 11/28/17

White Sands 210

by John (Jack) on 12/17/2017
I love The Big Island, and White Sands Village is in an ideal location. The units are very comfortable, reasonably priced and more than adequate for our needs. Date of Stay: 11/3/17 to 12/1/17

Awesome location away from the congestion in Kona

by Jennifer on 12/17/2017
We loved our stay at Keauhou Resort 125!! The layout and amenities were perfect. The bed was absolutely wonderful for someone with a bad back. Honestly after looking at reviews for 50+ condos we went with this one because of the bed and I'm so glad we did. We did book a last min one night stay down in Volcano to allow us to enjoy that area of the island more and minimize our driving. I would recommend this condo to anyone who doesn't want to be on top of the resort downtown Kona area!! Date of Stay: 12/8/17 to 12/18/17

Room with a view

by Brian on 12/16/2017
This was our first stay at the Kona Isle C32 and we were impressed with the complex overall. All was in order.. It's clean, comfortable and a well supplied unit. Nicely decorated with a good supply of kitchen necessities. There was a nice sitting area immediately behind the rocky beach with barbeques and tables near the pool. This place would be great for a couple to base out of for exploring the big island. Unit C32 is on the 3rd floor with no elevator. You get a designated parking spot which is great. Date of Stay: 11/20/17 to 12/12/17

Comfortable and affordable spot

by Jenny on 12/15/2017
Comfortable and affordable spot, close to Kailua-Kona. Great full ocean view, with tide pools and TONS of turtles. No a/c was a bigger issue than we expected for December. Also, the ocean is LOUD here, especially in the master bedroom. Date of Stay: 11/30/17 to 12/6/17

Great condo and location

by Noel on 12/15/2017
Great condo and location. Walking distance to downtown shops, farmers market, and bay. Apartment has a wonderful layout with a nice lanai. The great thing about this building are the walls, made out of concrete, no noise from neighbors and you really don't feel like you are in a condo. Communication with Kona Coast Vacation's was easy and very responsive. Will stay again. Date of Stay: 12/9/17 to 12/12/17

Highly recommend!

by Shannon on 12/15/2017
The location and view are outstanding! Perfect view of sunset each night. Great communication the entire time. Upon arrival, the wifi didn't work and they had it fixed right away. The host recommended Cindy (Smart Chef Hawaii) to prepare meals for us and she was amazing! Definitely worth it if you're interested in private meals at the home. My wife and I had a very relaxing babymoon here. Highly recommend! Date of Stay: 12/2/17 to 12/9/17

Kona Beautiful!!!

by Douglas on 12/13/2017
This was our second visit to Kona but had the pleasure of brining 2 other couples with us that have never been to Kona or Hawaii for one couple. The views were spectacular. The house was very impressive. A lot of mountain climbing with the car but worth the trips. Last stay we were water front and I enjoyed this location better plus the privacy of our own pool and outside grill etc. Would have liked the air conditioner working for several of the says but overall very nice home. Date of Stay: 11/2717 to 12/2/17

I recommend this home!

by Alex on 12/11/2017
This place is great! We went with a group of friends. The home was spacious and beautiful, the location is great, the view from the lanai is wonderful. There is a nice pool! I could go on and on. I recommend this home!Kona Coast Vacations was extremely helpful and hospitable.

I would rent this property again in a heartbeat

by Mike on 12/11/2017
This property was perfect for my 5 person family. Four of us love to snorkel, and one of the best snorkeling beaches on all of Hawaii Island is just down the driveway from the property. There are 3 units in this building. One larger top floor unit and two bottom floor units, one that faces the ocean and one that they call the "mountain side". We had the mountain side unit, and there was still a great view of the sea, the beach, and the sunsets. We just about lived on the lanai. We did a lot of cooking for ourselves, and the kitchen was well set up and well supplied with new equipment in perfect working order. Kona Coast Vacation was a great host. I would rent this property again in a heartbeat

Very nice property

by Kim on 12/10/2017
Casa De Emdeko is the perfect location for a quiet and relaxing vacation. Clean and safe, close to town and the "sandy beach" area is the perfect place to enjoy sunsets. Date of Stay: 12/1 17 to 12/10/17

November Kona Vacation

by Norman on 12/09/2017
Our stay was pretty good overall. The condo rental was in a central location close to the Royal Kona which has wonderful lobby and pool area. We would spend each morning having coffee in lobby of the Royal Kona and watching the dolphins perform in the bay. In the evenings we would sit at poolside of the Royal Kona and watch the luau shows. Short walk to markets and restaurants. Condo was clean and in good shape and very well stocked with kitchen tools. Good laundry facilities nice large bed and good bathroom facilities. Very large balcony which we used as a dinner and breakfast area and good view of the ocean ships and boats.
