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

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!

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

Awesome!

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.

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.

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

Kona Coast Vacations

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.

Good place to stay

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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

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.

Great!

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

Wonderful!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!!

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!

Fantastic!

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!

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.

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.

Fantastic

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Fantastic!

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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!

#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!!!

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!

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.

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.

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

Great Experience!

by Nicolas on 03/02/2018
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.

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!

Breathtaking

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

#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

Waikoloa

by Chuck on 02/28/2018
Very well equipped and furnished unit,Nice bonus to have the beach stuff chairs,umbrella,snorkel gear,etc

LOVE THE LOCATION AND THE VIEW, WILL BE BACK

by Tingting on 02/27/2018
GOOD SIZE APARTMENT AND HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR A BEACH LIFE. Date of Stay: 2/15/18 to 2/23/18

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!

by Jody on 02/27/2018
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

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

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.

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

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

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

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 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

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

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

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

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.

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

Excellent

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

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

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 .

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

Great!

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

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

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

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

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

Excellent

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Beautiful

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!

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!

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Great view great house

by Deborah on 01/31/2018
Excellent property. Great view great house. Lovely time had by all. Date of Stay: 1/6/18 to 1/15/18

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

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

Location,location

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!

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

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!

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 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

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.

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

Lovely!

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

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

Heaven

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 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Great floor plan

by Brent on 01/15/2018

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.

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

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

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

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

Super clean, good location

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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. Date of Stay: 12/22/17 to 1/1/18

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

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

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

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

Amazing

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

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

Upgraded condo is home-away-from-home

by Laura on 01/03/2018
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. Only a 1 minute walk to beautiful private beach. The property is well maintained, with pool and tennis courts. We had a great stay here! Date of Stay: 12/22/17 to 12/29/17

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

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

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

Christmas 2017

Amazing!

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

Spacious, bright and sparkling clean!

by Nicola on 12/31/2017
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

The home is beautifully set up and presented.

by Lea on 12/31/2017
A beautiful home with all amenities provided. Is suited well to an adult party with all bedrooms having private bathrooms, and plenty of space between rooms. We really enjoyed our stay. The home is beautifully set up and presented. Date of Stay: 12/8/17 to 12/15/17

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

Great location

by Mahesh on 12/31/2017
Great location close to one of the best snorkeling locations on the island. The rental was very clean and well maintained. Date of Stay: 12/11/17 to 12/18/17

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

D 33 Kona Reef was fabulous

by Chelsea on 12/31/2017

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

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 Joyce on 12/27/2017
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

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

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

Perfect!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lovely Kohala coast rental property

by Gwen on 12/13/2017
We rented this beautiful condo for a family vacation and really enjoyed out stay. The unit is very well maintained and the property management were extremely responsive to our requests for service and information. The unit is very well equipped with all our kitchen and beach needs. I would recommend this rental as a wonderful vacation property for those looking for a Big Island vacation! Date of Stay: 12/3/17 to 12/9/17

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.

Great location and view

by Timothy on 12/08/2017
We’ve stayed in this building before and would recommend it because of the walkability to restaurants, bars and shopping. This unit is on the third floor and close to the garage, should you choose to park there. The unit is well furnished and comfortable and the kitchen has every thing you could want—including a martini shaker. The lanai is fabulous for sunset viewing and cocktails. Would return. Date of Stay: 11/20/17 to 11/30/17

Wonderful and Relaxing...worth every penny!!

by Karen on 12/07/2017
Everything was perfect and while the pictures are beautiful, they don't do it justice! The views are stunning!! David at Kona Coast Vacations was incredibly helpful and responded quickly to all emails/calls. Amazing customer service! Thank you! Date of Stay: 12/2/17 to 12/8/17

Outstanding!

Wow. what a great place. couldn't have asked for more. the view was amazing. right on the water. the unit was clean and spacious and had all the things you would need for a great stay..from all the kitchen appliances, to beach towels, to masks/snorkels/boogie boards etc. The location is perfect. close to town, but on the edge enough where are aren't in the main strip noise and congestion. from the balcony we watched sea turtles and dolphins...the pool and hot tub are great. I'd stay here over and over when visiting Kona. The property managers were prompt and friendly, called to make sure everything was ok...and were available if we needed anything. Date of Stay: 11/29/17 to 12/4/17

Great place to stay...definitely water front! Date of Stay: 11/8/17 to 11/19/17

Didn't want to Leave

by Mike on 12/05/2017
We had a wonderful time at Kona Reef A32. The unit was exactly as advertised. It was in very good condition and clean. Everything worked. The ocean front view was wonderful, we really enjoyed our time on the lanai. A bonus we didn't expect was the proximity to shopping and restaurants. In less than a mile walk there are probably 20 restaurants/bars and many more shops. So nice not to have to drive and find parking! Date of Stay: 11/10/17 to 11/19/17

Enjoyed our stay. Staff very attentive

by Hilda on 12/04/2017
Great value and great location – a short walk to restaurants, coffee shops and shopping. The condo was comfortable and much larger than I expected – two full-size bathrooms! It is located by a very busy street (during the day), but that didn't bother me since I'm from a large city. Staff is very attentive and available if needed

We had a great time!

by Lisa on 12/04/2017
The apartment was very well kept and clean. Our favorite part was eating on the porch with a view of the ocean. It was a short drive to restaurants and stores so it was very well located. I would definetley reccomend staying here.

Paradise Condo

by Roger on 12/04/2017
From the moment of first walking in and seeing a million dollar view, I knew I was in paradise. An easy 5 minute walk into town with no need to get into the car. The condo is equipped with everything you need including boogie boards, and snorkel equipment, beach chairs, and a larger washer and dryer than I have at home. I will be telling all of my friends and relatives, when they come to Kona, they need to rent this place, it's a must!

Big Island Vacation

by T. A. on 12/03/2017
We had an awesome time at the Waikoloa Colony Villas 504. The directions to the unit were very precise and accurate. The unit is spacious and backs onto a golf course. Some things to know are the unit is in a gated community. We had some difficulty initially entering the code at the gate for entry. We arrived late at night and the lighting was very dim. The instructions said the gate code is key sign ######, where ###### is the numeric entry code. I did not realize that the key pad actually had a key at the lower right of the key pad which was the key sign. I only entered the numeric entry code, which initiated a phone call to an invalid number and the recovery from this entry was about a minute for each attempt. Someone eventually came along and let us in to the community with their code. In the daylight the following morning, I could see the 'key sign' on the gate key pad. One other item to note is that both bedrooms are upstairs in case you have lots of heavy luggage as we did. The unit has central air conditioning and is located about 30 minutes north of the airport. I would highly recommend this unit. Date of Stay: 11/14/17 to 11/21/17

Loved the condo!

by Cathy on 12/02/2017
The only bad thing that I can say about this stay is that we had to leave! The condo is beautiful, the amenities were wonderful, the location is fabulous and we are already planning our next stay in this condo.

Very Accommodating

by Krissa on 12/02/2017
Nice quiet location close to Kona town. Really clean and spacious for two people. The amenities were very helpful with cooking and getting our morning going with a nice pot of coffee. It really helped of having the options of having beach towels, boogy board, umbrella, cooler, etc. I found it very accommodating to us as guest. I find this condo absolutely beautiful! I really enjoyed my stay here!

Thanks for a great stay!!

by Alan on 12/02/2017
Enjoyed staying at this listing. It was very spacious and perfectly located in Kailua-Kona. Communication with Kona Coast Vacations was seamless and all the instructions were included in one easy to read email. Would stay with Kona Coast Vacations again when visiting the Big Island. The listing was very clean and spacious. There was plenty of parking was on site.

Comfortable and pleased...

by Kelsey on 12/02/2017
The kitchen was stocked with all of the tools and appliances we needed to cook meals and the beds and furniture were very comfortable. The Lana‘i was incredible and we really enjoyed our time at the condo.

Exceeded Expectations!

by Meghan on 12/02/2017
Our family of 8 spent Thanksgiving week at this amazing house and could not have had a better experience. This place is paradise - excellent location, quiet neighborhood, proximity to several beaches, fantastic pool/grilling area, amazing lanai with even better sunsets...we could go on forever. To top it all off, our hosts were incredibly responsive and helpful. You're not going to find a better rental or value in the area. We would most definitely stay here again should we return to Hawaii.

Great Holiday

by Richard on 12/02/2017
Great location, very clean, all amenities, grounds neat and kept in good condition. The entire process regarding reservations and other communication was professional and quick. I would certainly recommend this unit to my friends.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

by Megan on 12/01/2017
This was a beautiful condo to have as home base during our visit to the Big Island! The views are SPECTACULAR and are even more breathtaking in person than the pictures can do! The location was perfect- just a mile or so easy walk into a ‘downtown' area with restaurants and bars, shops, and beaches! Other points of interest were a good driving distance away (30-60 min), which was very convenient also. The condo premises was beautiful, well landscaped with great views of the water and a very close by beach access. We were briefly locked out and got an immediate response/ assistance from Kona Coast. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Almost perfect vacation

by Ronald on 12/01/2017
The unit was in excellent condition as was all of the furniture and towels etc. Are only complaint was the unit had a great number of small almost nosee m type bugs. It did not bother us, but I can think of many of are freinds that would have been concderned. As prior Hawaii residents we learned to put up with the tiny Hawaiian insects. Date of Stay: 11/15/17 to 11/30/17

Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important positive feedback.   We believe the bugs that you were referring to were gnats – small seasonal creatures that unfortunately we can do nothing to prevent.  As you know, they can come right thru the screens but they are harmless.  We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you again.

Kona Coast Vacations

A perfect venue for Hawaii vacation

by Paul on 11/30/2017
We arrived the day before Thanksgiving and checked out the Sunday after. This is a stunning condo. It's in the perfect spot for driving to Kona beaches, activities and adventures during the day, and for Ubering to Kona nightlife when the sun goes down. Plus - the condo is furnished with everything you'll need during your stay -- and you'll feel like a millionaire everytime you walk through the door. The lease and payment processes were easy and hassle free. Highly recommended. We'll be back the next time we're on the Big Island.

Airbnb Review

by Judy on 11/30/2017
The directions to get to the condo were excellent and the efficient lockbox check-in system worked well. Our condo was clean and well equipped with anything we could ever need. When we did encounter a problem in our condo, the management was quick to respond. We would certainly recommend Kona Coast Vacations to our friends. Date of Stay: 11/8/17 to 11/18/17

Lovely condo

by Laure on 11/30/2017
We had a really pleasant stay in this unit. The condo was lovely and clean and had everything one could need. Everything was exactly as advertised. The entire grounds are well kept and the pool is really nice. They even have a nice bbq area. Kona Coast Vacations were easy to work with. They were very responsive and helpful. We would definitely come back. Date of Stay: 11/11/17 to 11/16/17

Well Equipped Condo

by Roxanne on 11/30/2017
The condo is well equipped with beach equipment and kitchen supplies. Nice view from the balcony and well manicured shared grounds. Kona coast vacations company is very eager to help you make reservations and excursions. They send out multiple canned emails with updates and information. We didn't have any issues so I didn't have to follow through with anyone but it seemed like it would be easy if we had to reach someone. Date of Stay: 11/6/17 to 11/11/17

Airbnb Review

by Amy on 11/30/2017
We enjoyed our stay in Alii Villas, and the unit was as described. It's managed by a third party, Kona Coast Vacations, so they communicate directly with you. Pros: -Good location, the complex is about a 10 minute drive from downtown (although downtown Kona itself is walkable, it didn't seem like you could walk to downtown from surrounding areas. Alii Dr takes you right into downtown, but doesn't have a sidewalk or streetlights, so I don't recommend walking there) -Nice pool. Wasn't crowded, was pretty and had nice landscaping -Right on the coast. You can walk out onto the lava rocks from the property. -Spacious, clean, nicely furnished. Cons: -No A/C -Washing machine barely worked -bed in master bedroom was not very comfortable. Date of Stay: 11/14/17 to 11/19/17

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.   The washing machine was repaired right after your visit, and we will inspect the bed.   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.

Perfect vacation stay

by Anet on 11/27/2017
We really enjoyed our stay at Sea Village 4303 condo stay. The view was spectacular. We had breakfast and lunch there everyday of our stay. We just couldn't get enough of the view. You can easily walk into town from the location. A good way to burn off those extra holiday calories. The condo came fully equipped with all that was needed. Coffee filters, salt, towels, etc etc. we will be staying here again that's for sure. Date of Stay: 11/14/17 to 11/22/17

Kilakila home

by Lea on 11/26/2017
Location - Half way between north Kohala where we scuba dive and Kona. A couple of miles from Queen’s and King’s Marketplace and Hapuna Beach = Perfect. Home - Excellent house. Loved the layout. Furniture was great. WIFI was fast. Cable TV was good. Appliances were excellent. Small appliances were all there including rice cooker. Everything you could possibly need was available. Nice having inside laundry room with new washer/dryer. Loved the large covered patio in backyard with great view of ocean and mountains. Landscaping was beautiful Everything was clean and well-maintained. Nothing was missing. Having a garage was very nice. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. We have rented a home near Waimea for 3 years. That home was nice - this one beat it by a lot. We are going to Maui next November; however, my adult son and I will be back to the Big Island and hope to rent this home again. Date of Stay: 11/12/17 to 11/22/17

Fantastic house--pool-view

by Janice on 11/26/2017
Of all the properties we have rented through VRBO and AIRB&B, this is the best one. It doesn't feel like a rental; it feels like we are staying in someone's gracious home. It is decorated beautifully with art pieces in most rooms. The kitchen is fully stocked, not just a small amount of dishes, utensils and pans. The view is beautiful, so great to have such a clear view of the ocean. And the pool is fantastic. Our grandchildren, two and four, live close by and loved the pool, plenty of room to play. Beautiful setting and private yard. And the pool area is separated from the main yard and lanai by an iron fence and gate. Very safe for kids. We hope to return again soon, and will plan our trip around availability of this house. Date of Stay: 11/13/17 to 11/27/17

Wonderful Big Island place to stay!

by Nicholas on 11/26/2017
Wonderful single bedroom unit in a nice complex. Great bed, good washroom, good living room & kitchen and wonderful porch. Unit has a great sunset viewing area, saltwater pool, regular pool and BBQ / eating area. Highly recommend this unit. Date of Stay: 11/17/17 to 11/20/17

Nice view

by Danni on 11/26/2017
Overall we enjoyed our stay at this property and the beautiful views are hard to beat. We spent most of our time outside on the lanai. The pool here was large for a property with only 6 units and well maintained. The negatives were that there was no hot water from the solar heating even though it was sunny the 3 days we stayed here. There is a booster heater but that only takes the chill off and gives you luke warm water. The other point is that it can be very noisy here as you can hear everything from other units and the road. Date of Stay: 11/21/17 to 11/24/17
Aloha! On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important positive feedback. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it’s apparent in this case that we fell short when it came to your comfort in one of our rooms. We have contacted the property owner in regards to the solar, and he has been assured by the complex management that this issue has been taken care of. We have not received any additional guest complaints, and thank you for bringing this to our attention. 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.
Mahalo Kona Coast Vacations

Perfect in every way!!!

by Jen on 11/25/2017
Heavens was perfect in every way!!! Wish we could have stayed longer! We rented the home to share with our friends and family for our wedding during the week. It pretty much had everything we needed for our stay, including some beach chairs & towels, a few snorkel gear items and even different sizes of water shoes! Didn't realize until the last day that there was actually avocado trees on the property! Could've had REAL LOCAL avos as opposed to the ones we bought at the grocery store. The ONLY thing we noticed that was wrong with the place was apparently the renters before us had a bit of a spaghetti mishap in the kitchen (there was sauce on the ceiling that was missed by the cleaners). The house was absolutely beautiful and we will more than likely be back! The only thing that would keep us from renting Heavens again would be the need for more sleeping arrangements, as I'm sure next time around we will have more guests to share with!!!! Mahalo for making our wedding week so amazing by sharing your beautiful home!!! Date of Stay: 11/14/17 to 11/19/17

JUST LOVE THIS VILLA !!

by Diane on 11/25/2017
his is the second year in a row we stayed here at #303 for Thanksgiving and just loved we would like to make it an annual thing, We also liked the changes that was made with the new painting, the curtains in the masterroom , and putting two beds in the other room . We hope to stay here again when coming to the Waikaloa to visit our ohana in Waikaloa and Kamuela. THANKS AGAIN !! The KING ohana. Date of Stay: 11/22/17 to 11/26/17

My family really enjoyed our stay

by Troy on 11/24/2017
Once you get through the booking process, great communication via email and text...helpful local advice from our concierge. My family really enjoyed our stay

Wonderful homebase for three couples

by Steve on 11/24/2017
We had a wonderful week-long family reunion at 68-3555 Awamoa Place with our two grown children, their spouses and infants. This immaculate, newly decorated home accommodated us beautifully. It has 3 very private bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large and open, well-furnished and equipped, up-scale kitchen, dining and living room area. Professional landscaping with a variety of flowering tropical plants surround the home and provided us complete privacy when outside on the two lanais or when sitting in the backyard. Located just a 10 minute drive from the beaches, the ocean could be seen from one lanai. In addition to nice linens, bedding and towels, there were lofty beach towels, 6 good beach chairs and beach umbrellas. The new washer and dryer in the garage were much appreciated as was the generous off-street parking for our three vehicles. A drawer full of books and brochures gave us lots of ideas and information for adventures and trips from this great, centrally located 'home base.'

Will highly recommend it!

by Irfan on 11/23/2017
Very nice and clean property , close to beach. We were party of 5 adults for 4 nights. We liked it. Will highly recommend it.

A truly beautiful house in a magical location!....I couldn't recommend Kona Coast Vacations more highly.

by Antonia on 11/23/2017
We loved the Ailina house. It couldn't have been more perfect for our group of 4 adults and a 5 year old. The fans kept the house cool and the beds were comfortable. There was loads of space to relax and get away from each other if we needed to. We loved having all the doors open downstairs with that lovely Hawaiian breeze blowing through the house. We were able to use the sound bar with bluetooth - you just have to download a Yamaha app for it and the sound was great. Best days spent floating in the pool, watching the sunset, and having a BBQ. I couldn't recommend Kona Coast Vacations more highly. They were helpful and attentive and easy to communicate with. A truly beautiful house in a magical location. I wish I was back there now!

I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

by Scott on 11/23/2017
The pictures for this rental do not come close to doing this place justice. It was beautiful, well stocked, and fit our party comfortably. Communication was fantastic, and they even let us check out an hour later. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

If I could give this place more than 5 stars, I would! Amazing. Simply amazing.

by Amanda on 11/23/2017
If I could give this place more than 5 stars, I would!Amazing. Simply amazing.The communication was outstanding and effortless.The grounds are immaculate. They are so well kept.We loved the peace and quiet of the condo. We really appreciated that!The actual condo is perfect. Comfortable, quiet and fully stocked. It has every single thing we needed.Now.... The amazing sunsets from the lanai were the highlight of this condo!! SPECTACULAR!!!! I think I may have over 200 pictures on my phone of the sunsets from the lanai. Funny story.... There was an open house here at one of the condos. We are actually looking into buying one! We just loved the complex and how will it was kept, the location... Wow!

Wonderful Stay

by Jacquelyn on 11/22/2017
This condo is better than the pictures! We enjoyed the layout (we are looking for a lot in Oregon to built a similar place now). The grounds are beautifully maintained, the area quiet and convenient to many different things! Our favorite thing to do is snorkel and we are pretty low key so we shopped at Island Gourmet and had picnics. Our last night we tried the Aloha Wine Bar in Island Gourmet and had both a fantastic meal and good choices of drinks. Plus it was reasonable. Date of Stay: 11/12/17 to 11/19/17

Vacation to Remember

by Joseph on 11/21/2017
My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon for eight days. The place is very spacious, clean and inviting. It comes with all the essentials for your stay. Relax at the pool, enjoy the view from the patio or explore the nearby restaurants and beaches. We found it as a great jumping off point for all our island adventures and highly recommend it for anyone wanting to experience the "Big Island". Date of Stay: 10/1/17 to 10/9/17

Loved It!

by Anonymous on 11/21/2017
The unit was very clean, in good condition, and well equipped. We enjoyed many hours on the lanai. This is a great ocean front location. When we booked we didn't realize how close it was to Kona with all that has to offer. There must be 20 restaurants and bars with a mile, not to mention the shops and services. And it was such a pleasant walk that we did it most days! I would definitely come again!

Great vacation rental!

by Guest from Bellingham, WA on 11/21/2017
Loved this property. Very comfortable and clean and so nicely furnished. Great view overlooking the golf course and views to the ocean. AC would have been nice, but there were lots of fans to stir up the air. One draw back was that this unit is on the third floor and there is no elevator, so hauling 50 lb. luggage up the stairs was quite challenging. Not recommended for elderly people. We would surely rent this unit again in a heartbeat!

Good location, Good experience!

by Subrata on 11/21/2017
Very good location with this price range. Very clean suite! We really had a good experience, would love to go back again.

Beautiful condo in Kona

by Valerie on 11/19/2017
Great condo for a family with a lot of amenities for the beach: chairs, umbrella and coolers. The only small negative was the water fountain noise from the property next door was taking away from the ocean waves noise a little

Delightful stay in Kona

by Jeff on 11/19/2017
The condo was about 1 mile from downtown Kona, which was perfect for us; a long walk or short drive to nearby restaurants and shops. The Alii Villas were clean and quiet enough that we could hear the ocean from our room at all times. Sitting at the Lanai was delightful.

04/2016 Alii Villas 227

by Donna on 11/19/2017
This was a great rental. Clean, spacious condo. Kitchen supplies were well stocked. Beautiful view off the lanai. Coded entry, so no worries about keeping up with keys. Kyle, who seems to have multiple jobs, including groundskeeper, and contact person, was very helpful and pleasant. Be aware there is one parking space per unit. Also, request your wifi access code in advance, so there is no issue if you arrive after hours. I would definitely recommend this condo.

Lovely oceanfront ground level unit; perfect!

by Betty on 11/19/2017
Spent a great week in this 1 bedroom ground level oceanfront unit. Fabulous location on the ocean and easy walking access to all the shops & restaurants along the Kona waterfront. Unit was clean, modern, well maintained and nicely decorated. Great AC in bedroom and living room. First evening on arrival, we could not get the large sliding patio door open. Kona Coast promptly sent out a service man who opened it with a heavy pull and lubed up the track as the door was stuck in grooves that had been worn in the frame over time. Being ocean front these large doors also get a little sticky over time. Worked fine for the rest of our stay. The only suggestion I would leave is to replace or discard the 2 folding portable beach chairs as they are quite threadbare and don't actually work anymore. We loved this unit and location of the Kona Reef and will be back! Date of Stay: 11/11/17 to 11/18/17

Second time we stayed in C32

by Alvin on 11/19/2017
We stayed in C32 back in April and we were happy to rent the same unit again. It's clean, comfortable and a well supplied unit. Nicely decorated with a good supply of kitchen necessities. The living room TV could be bigger and the fold out sofa bed is beginning to show some age but we don't go to Kona to stay on the couch watching tv. Kona Isle is a wonderful complex in a great location. Date of Stay: 10/21/17 to 11/1/17

Best vacation ever!

by Ernest on 11/18/2017
The rental property was well kept and in a perfect location. The daily exploration of the rocks for sea life and visits of the great sea turtle was an added treat for all. we did not have to go very far for white sandy beaches to swim, and then a very close beach provided snorkeling adventures.

Bali Kai

by Aaron on 11/18/2017
We love Hawaii and we had a great time in Kailua-Kona...lots to do! The condo was nice. The surf out front was really good all week- The noise can get loud at night from cars driving by and partyers at the park directly next door- and FYI NO ALCOHOL allowed in the pool...although everyone just pours it in a cup and enjoys the warm pool and jacuzzi- but watch out for Female Hawaiian Paul Blart Rent-A-Cop patrolling 24-7- I guess you can just go across the street to the liquor store and sit on the beach and drink with the rest of the town...

Bali Kai #201

by Lois on 11/18/2017
The condo was way beyond my expectations. It had everything you could ask for including beach towels, and water toys. I would definitely stay here again.

View

by William on 11/18/2017
Absolutely beautiful view. Kitchen is very large with all your kitchen needs.
The beach is great for surfacing, has a small beach and great for viewing turtle's. The beds could use a little updating

Wonderful Ocean Front Condo Stay

by Ethel on 11/18/2017
When we walked into the condo we were surprised to see it was actually nicer than the pictures. The condo was nicely stocked with cooking utensils, towels, beach items and really nice quality toiletries for our initial use. The location was perfect being just far enough away from a lot of the traffic and heavier tourism. We did not have air conditioning which we at first thought was going to be a problem but as soon as we opened the windows and door from the lanai things cooled off instantly from the breeze. There were turtles outside every day. The grounds were well maintained, the pool was being worked on, but there was a shallow area protected by some rocks right out in front that was good for wading if needed. Our condo did not have anyone under us which was nice after hearing some slight sounds from someone that was above us. Not that we made noise but we could tell when they moved a chair or dropped something, but by no means an issue from the upper condo. The people that worked at Kona Bali Kai were very nice and helpful even though we did not book through them but through Kona Coast. It was nice having a concierge even though we did not have an opportunity to solicit his help. I would definitely stay at this condo again and would use Kona Coast, it felt much safer booking through them vs some of the online web sites.

Great view and location

by Cheryl on 11/18/2017
We found the condo to be even better than described. It is stocked with anything and everything you may need. The view is even better than the pictures. The rental manager responded very quickly to a need, and the on-site property manager was also very friendly and helpful. If we return to the Big Island, we will inquire about staying here again.

Great Place to Stay

by Susan on 11/18/2017
This was the second time we stayed in this condo & would stay again. It's spacious and the view is awesome- watching surfers in the morning and sunsets in the evening from the lanai. Clean & well equipped condo.

Another wonderful time in paradise staying in Casa de Emdeko 328

by John on 11/17/2017
I think this is fifth or sixth time staying in CdE 328 and never gets old. Very comfortable and relaxing. We plan on doing it again!! Date of Stay: 11/1/17 to 11/15/17

Four Weeks Of Sunsets

by Terri on 11/16/2017
We stayed at this house for four weeks as part of our 40th Anniversary celebration. We had family come and stay with us at different times and visited other family who live on Hawai'i. It was wonderful to explore the Big Island at our leisure and to not have to rush to do this and that. The house comes exactly as described on the website. It was extremely clean and well kept up. There were a few minor issues that arose over time, but Kona Coast was always eager and quick to address the situation. Every contact we had with Kona Coast staff was excellent. Except for the weekday traffic on the Queen K. Hwy between the airport and Holualoa, we enjoyed everywhere we went on the island. We particularly liked the beauty of, and everything we did on the Kohala Peninsula. Don't miss the Pololu Valley Lookout or the drive on Hwy 250 between Hawi and Waimea...gorgeous. We also very much enjoyed the east side of the island from South Point, to Na'alehu, to Punalu'u Beach, to the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. We enjoyed Lava Lava Beach Club in Waikoloa, Punalu"u Bakery in Na'alehu, Kings View Cafe in Kapa'au, Kona Brewery Pub in Kailua, and Sam Choy's and Amici's in Keauhou. In the end though, one the best memories will be all the varied and beautiful sunsets we enjoyed from the lanai of Eono. Date of Stay: 10/17/17 to 11/14/17

Nice quiet clean condo

by Robert on 11/15/2017
In general the condo was well equipped and very quiet/clean. Kitchen had lots of items and a good sized fridge and some cooler ice blocks. There is a large TV WIFI signal and speed was perfectly fine for browsing and was reliable. Very large walk in closet in the bedroom Huge amount of extra towels and bedding if needed plus several beach towels. Nice large balcony that gets the sun in the morning – perfect for breakfast time. Parking space is directly next to and in front of the condo Condo complex grounds were amazingly clean and very well maintained Note that it is a brisk 20 minute walk to the waterfront bar/restaurant area, otherwise lots of taxi/uber is available for about $7 The things we missed when compared to other condos we have rented were some basic items such as salt/pepper/spices and small packet of coffee/tea (we bought some for our stay and left it for the next guest). Condo has some simple beach items instead of the "standard" tommy Bahama chairs and umbrella that we had everywhere else but it still works. The small push in umbrella needs a lot more work on most beaches and as a result the top is damaged where someone has tried to hammer it into the ground. There is also a small playmate igloo cooler but it’s the very small 6 pack cooler so don’t expect to fit too much in We were happy with the condo and would have no hesitation to rent the same condo again.

Great Place!

by Andrea on 11/15/2017

Alii Villas 227

by Dominique on 11/15/2017
Beautiful, modern space with great ocean views. The space was very clean, comfy beds, and fully stocked kitchen. Close to shopping, restaurants, and beaches. We will definitely be booking our next Kona trip at the same spot! Date of Stay: 11/5/17 to 11/11/17

Perfect for a family holiday

by Joonas on 11/15/2017
We loved the Casa De Emdeko. The property is right on the ocean, with awesome sunset views and two large pools. The atmosphere and other residents were nice and relaxed. The unit was perfectly equipped and clean. We also found the location to be very good. Walking distance to Kona and restaurants. Very good value for money! Date of Stay: 11/5/17 to 11/15/17

nice view with comforts of home

by Dave on 11/14/2017
Unit has everything you need as advertised. Large relaxing lanai with ocean view.

Everything you need for a holiday in Kona

by Heather on 11/14/2017
The condo was exactly as described and had everything we needed with very comfortable furniture and a well equipped kitchen. The snorkeling and beach gear was a bonus. The pool is one of the best I have seen and the communal BBQ area was very clean and well laid out. The ocean view from the lanai was brilliant. I cannot recommend this property highly enough.

excellent

Excellent value for the price

by Lee on 11/14/2017
The condo was a pleasant surprise -- stocked with basic cooking supplies, boogie boards and other items not expected. It was well organized, clean and the view was enough to see the sunset every night. The lanai is sweet. The bed was comfortable and the bedroom cooler than the rest of the condo due to its north facing orientation. I would recommend this condo to anyone.

Wonderful

by Robert on 11/14/2017
We had a great stay at Akoa Place, being there for 10 days. The house was unbelievable and everything was working properly. The pool was very clean as was everything...And what a view!!!! The manager was more than hospitable and welcoming. Magnificent place, well situated, quiet and…wonderful…We should have stayed longer. Date of Stay: 10/31/17 to 11/10/17

A HAPPY TIME IN BIG ISLAND

by Kenichi on 11/13/2017
my wife and i had very wonderful time. Which we had never experienced before. Date of Stay: 8/22/17 to 10/2/17

Wonderful oasis to use as a home while on vacation

by James on 11/09/2017
The views from the back lanai were just amazing; I had not taken a vacation in many years and this house, and Island of Kona sure let me know what I had been missing. The house is beautiful with a wonderful open concept kitchen, living area, and dining area. We only had one other couple but the house could have easily handled a much larger group. The master bedroom had a tremendous 180 degree view of the ocean and included a large walk in closet along with a beautiful on suite bathroom. The house also came equipped with a wonderful BBQ which we made use of several times. We will definitely be coming back here. Date of Stay: 10/27/17 to 11/5/17

Lovely house, great location for Ironman 2017

by Rhian on 11/09/2017
Great house in a lovely gated community, neighbors are friendly and kona bay drive is kept to a high standard. The house itself has everything you could ask for even down to the snorkeling equipment. It's clean well stocked and quiet, a little bit of paradise within easy walking distance of Kailua Bay (about 10-15 minutes walk). For us the only down side was the garden could be assessed from the playing fields behind, which kind of defeated the gated access scenario, but none the less it was great to watch the American football training that was held there. We stayed for ironman world championships as my husband was taking part and the area had lots of lovely places to eat out if you want a break from cooking. A car is a must if you want to see the island and give the night mantaray a go, and the dolfin swim to. Would we stay again? Yes definitely but would like to see the garden fenced, then I think you would have piece of mind that's it's really only accessible via the main gate which has guards on at all times. Hopefully we will be back in the next couple of years for the same event, thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home.

Hit the Jackpot!

by Sallyanne on 11/08/2017
Could not have imagined a better place to stay for out trip to Kailua-Kona. As close to the ocean as you can get - listen to waves crashing on the shore! The amazing views at all hours - sunsets, moonsets; each more spectacular than the one before. Conveniently located just outside of town with a small marketplace across the street with about 20 vendors. We were provided with everything we needed - towels, beach towels, soaps, hairdryer, etc. Very clean and updated unit. Living space is like open air living! Exceeded all expectations - was nervous booking online but could not have worked out better. Would not stay anywhere else!

Beautiful home with great location. Spectacular views.

by Pamela on 11/06/2017
This beautiful home is perfectly located. Spectacular views, close to activities, restaurants and shopping. Kona Coast Vacations were very thoughtful, thorough and helpful.

Nice stay on the Kona Coast

by Julie on 11/06/2017
The unit is a little older, but has everything you need. Full kitchen, beach towels, picnic cooler, hair dryer, lounge chairs, extra bedding. We saw turtles right on the beach in front of the unit. Really fun to watch the surfers too. The volcano is a must. It's a drive, but well worth it. Go after dark for the best views of lava in the crater. Kona Coast rentals were great to work with too. We changed our check-in - check-out date and they were great. After we were there, we added one day and again great to work with. Date of Stay: 10/22/17 to 10/26/17

A perfect vacation experience

by Jay on 11/06/2017
This is a great condominium home for your Kona vacation. The home is very well appointed with comfy beds, a well equipped kitchen, awesome layout and a great view. The location is also very nice with great access to a great grocery store and walking distance to nice restaurants and bars for happy hour. Kona CC is a nice golf course and the clubhouse is only a few blocks away. The pool (1 of 3) is right around the corner from the home and was never over crowded. The residents were friendly and welcoming and both Kona Coast Vacations and Country Club Villas on-site manager were always helpful, if needed. We would return in a heartbeat! Dates of Stay: 10/24/17 to 11/2/17

Family hoilidays at Akoa

by Stephen on 10/25/2017
Very good and quite location and really nice inside. It has everything as promised in the add and is in some cases even better than in the pictures. Only small downside is that you have to be used to the temperature. No aircon but a lot of ceiling vans keep it relative cool. We can only recommend the place! Date of Stay: 10/6/17 to 10/21/17

Building is solid, and no noise from upper floor!

by Katsushi on 10/25/2017
The building of this vacation rental, also shown on the picture on the score card of Waikoloa Village GC as the best scene of this area (may be), is very solid, and we cannot hear any noise of the upper floor. On the other hand you may have to close ventiration windows of bed rooms at the night time, since Nene (Hawaiian goose) living in the golf course sometimes sings late at night. Security is very good, since there is a rocked gate at the territory entrance, and that car number has to be informed to the onsite manager upon the arrival. Over all, it it very good vacation rental. P.S. It is sad that "Waikoloa Fairways" (where this unit is located) and "The Fairway Villas" at the Waikoloa Beach resort area are often regarded as the same, though those two are different entirely.

Our family just spent 12 days at this property and it was wonderful!

by Kelly on 10/21/2017
Our family just spent 12 days at this property and it was wonderful!There was plenty of space and storage for everyone. The beds were very comfortable.The kitchen was fully stocked and then some! Lots of dishes and glasses, serving trays, bowls, and all of the expected small appliances, but also had a crock pot and rice cooker, hand mixer, and tea kettle- we used them all!!The home owners have provided coolers and ice packs which were awesome for taking to the beach or for picnics. There were two boogie boards and lawn chairs to take to the beach and these were very much enjoyed and appreciated by our family.We loved our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or to recommend it to family and friends.

Great Getaway

by Michele on 10/21/2017
We just loved this property! It was well appointed,clean and perfectly located. The salt water water pool was wonderful. At high tide the waves would break over the rocks and make you feel like you were in the ocean. We will stay here again. We did have a issue with sand clogging up the kitchen faucet and the shower but the property manager took care of it quickly. Date of Stay: 9/26/17 to 10/5/17

Incredible

by Anoymous on 10/21/2017
Unbelievable property. The pool is amazing! There is no AC but do not let that deter you. They have great fans, both ceiling and portable that keep you cool throughout the night. The rooms are all spacious. Very private property. Honestly the best rental house I have ever stayed in.

Just like the pictures!

by Jenny on 10/20/2017
Condo looked just like the photos. Beautiful ocean view. Loved the balconies. Very clean. The pool area was amazing with unbelievable views of the sunset. The Kona Coast Vacations group was very helpful and available as we needed

The family had a great time.

by Brock on 10/20/2017
Great place to call home for a week on Hawaii. The family had a great time. The property was everything we hoped for. Perfect place to relax and close enough to the beach to be there within minutes. We had plans to visit the other side of the island a few days during our stay but the property and the proximity to awesome beaches kept us on the Kona side of the island most of the week. Love the property and Kona Coast was great to work with. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay on the Kona side of the island

Great Place. Great Comlpex. Great People to work with!

by Tyler on 10/20/2017
Great location. Great complex. Great people to work with. Such a good place to relax and a perfect spot to run or walk. The condo was very big and clean with all the amenities of home.

Great place, great facility!

by Ruth on 10/20/2017
Great place to stay, awesome communication and perfect for my first Kona trip!

Look forward to coming back!

by Yani on 10/20/2017
Wonderful time at this great condo! Very clean, quiet,fantastic A/C. Just show up and roll up to the water or just sit on the balcony and watch the sunset with a bottle of wine. Views are amazing - saw Spinner dolphins first hour there. Salt water pool along the ocean is second to none-just lounge and listen to the ocean waves- nice sand area with lots of recliners to catch the rays in private. Many grills poolside to cook yourself under the stars. Wife and I picked the location right in the middle between our two favorite locations in Kona - 1) Magic Sand Beach- fantastic boggy boarding! Please be careful surf can really get nasty - never turn your back to the ocean or on the little ones! 2) The other favorite is Huggos Restaurant...reserve an Oceanside table 30m before sunset and enjoy the light show! Overall the complex was very very nice- quiet and relaxing. Not sure if it would be convienent for more than 2 at the condo as the living room was in the open kitchen. The teams responsiveness was instant and caring! Thank you for the wonderful

Beautiful, right on the water!

Nice Place

A really nice place in very good condition. AC works good in bedrooms and big sealing fans. Nice terrace with view over the golf course and the ocean.

The apartment was great. Thank you very much

by Diego on 10/20/2017
The apartment is great, with a beautiful view, and well localized. It has all utilities that you may need and a very well equipped kitchen. They also have several guides to the island.Kona Coast Vacations provided a very good description of how to reach the apartment, and was also very fast to answer my questions.

Great!

by Jane on 10/20/2017
Our recent stay at this apartment was great. The check in process was easy and the apartment was as expected. The apartment was clean and as described. The complex was tidy and well managed. The location was great.

Worth to be recommended

by Chengxiang on 10/20/2017
Very good place to live, we have everything we need in the apartment. It is next to a golf course, you have a good view seating on balcony. There is a good KTA super market in working distance( 2 mins drive), you get anything you want from it, including good California wines. Worth to be recommended.

Nice apartment. Fully equipped kitchen

by Lachlan on 10/20/2017
We liked the apartment, it's in a great location with a fully equipped kitchen. Fold out bed is quite comfortable as well. No Air con is the only pitfall, but the apartment air flow is quite nice with the doors open. Dates of Stay: 9/29/17 to 10/15/17

Everything we needed

Amazing Experience

by Rusty on 10/20/2017
This was our first time staying at this unit and it won't be our last. The condo was in fantastic shape and had all the amenities that we needed. The beds were comfy and most importantly, everything was very clean (from the unit to the linens) and we couldn't have asked for more. It's very close to the pool which is great, and the ability to access the beach club was amazing. The beach club especially was a huge hit with our child, who is young and still getting used to the ocean. The snorkling was great there too, since the waters are so calm. We had a great trip and we're looking forward to coming back again soon.

Fabulous!

The condo was extremely clean, amenities were very nice, wifi connection was great as some of us worked a little bit while here and overall the condo was perfect for our needs. Such a pretty place to stay as depicted in the pictures. Pool and complex were very clean! Communication prior to coming, instructions from the airport as well as instructions for the condo where very detailed. The location is good for Waikoloa Village. Many gorgeous beaches nearby. Again, we would stay with Kona Coast again without question. In fact we are already talking about our next trip! Best Airbnb experience so far! Date of Stay: 10/7/17 to 10/14/17

We would just like to say thank you for a wonderful stay at All'i Villas. We have checked out and wanted to say how much we enjoyed our time in Kona and especially our accommodation at Ali'i Villas. If we come back to the Island we will definitely stay again.

Nice quite townhouse with partial ocean view

by Judy on 10/12/2017
We enjoyed our stay at this unit it was clean and relaxing. We've stayed at different places on the Big Island and this was the best place we've been to. We'd come back again! They had snorkel gear, chairs, coolers which we used. It was unusually winding at the beach, so it would have been nice to have had boogie boards to use. We loved the fact that there was a gas grill on the lanai, so we cooked our dinners a few evenings and enjoyed the view. The minor things we noticed was the AC worked well upstairs (and we slept comfortably), but the downstairs was always warmer. Also most of the cable channels didn't work, so we ended up watching shows from our laptop.  Date of Stay: 10/8/17 to 10/10/17

We loved the condo! It was so spacious and homey that we almost didn't want to leave because it was so nice to just relax around the house! We highly recommend staying here when you visit Kona, it was very easy to reserve the room, the owners provided exceptional service and the location was perfect! We enjoyed the helicopter tour over the volcano and night snorkeling with the Manta Rays!

We loved our stay here! Casa de Emdeko is conveniently located and very quiet. Our condo was decorated nicely and well stocked. The property was very well maintained, beautiful grounds and 2 pools. We were close to town so that it was easy to go to dinner or the stores. We were within a 30 minute drive to some spectacular snorkeling beaches, 2 Step was our favorite. Date of Stay: 9/19/17 to 9/23/17

by Anonymous on 10/02/2017
We liked being 1/2 way between Kailua and the beach at Kahaluu Park for snorkeling! It's the best snorkeling beach in the Kailua area in our opinion. Well laid out unit with lots of room. Great for 2 couples or a family. Would stay here again for sure!

Ocean Front

by Julie on 10/02/2017
Great unit facing the beautiful sea and sunset in Kailua-Kona, snorkel beach next door and nice pool or grassy ocean-front lawn for options. Loved watching the body boarders, outriggers, parasails, and sea turtles. Walk to dinner at Huggos or a little further into the main tourist area. Walk or jog the other way for a nice exercise. Rental company great to work with. Top floor so there are stairs. Date of Stay: 9/26/17 to 10/1/17

We highly recommend Kona Coast Vacations. Our house was perfect! Just as pictured! It was beautiful, clean and welcoming and served as our home away from home during our stay on Big Island. Everyone we dealt with through Kona Coast Vacations was professional and pleasant. David with Kona Concierge was a huge help to us with planning day trips as well as organizing all of our arrangements for us. He also gave us recommendations on sights, beaches, restaurants, local spots, and general things to do while visiting. He was also prompt with following up on emails and phone calls and was always pleasant to interact with. The house was not far from the downtown area, and was in a secure, quiet gated community. It included WiFi, a welcome gift basket with local treats, and AC, among other amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would use Kona Coast Vacation again, given the opportunity! Date of Stay: 9/16/17 to 9/21/17

The Ailina House was very nice, however, do note that there is not any AC in the house, and some nights you will be quite hot. There are plenty of ceiling fans and a handful of portable fans sitting around, which came into great use. All the rooms are nice, especially the master suite, although the master suite does not have a door to separate the bedroom from the bathroom, so noises can travel throughout.
Getting in the house was easy with the provided codes and there was a garage door opener waiting for us on the welcome packet, making getting in after that much easier, only one code to memorize, instead of garage and door codes. The pool was larger than expected, which was a very nice surprise. There is plenty of seating outside under the lanai, and the lanai even has screens you can let down to block direct sun from hitting you. The views from the master and the patio are indeed beautiful, and if you happen to be at the house during the sunset, you will not be disappointed. The house did have the basic essentials you need, as well as, spices, coffee grinder, and beach towels. Maybe you will get lucky and the guests before you will leave you some other items. We had leftover water, a snorkel kit, and extra toilet paper that we had no interest in taking with us, so we left it for the next group.
Kona Coast Vacations was quick to respond to a few issues I had with the house, and they were quick to respond, although one issue was never fixed, the pool light. The pool light did not work at all during our stay. There are an okay amount of outdoor lights, but only one that points in the direction of the pool, and really it is directed towards part of the patio on the side of the pool. The lanai is well lit. The house did have some pool toys/floats. The house is a very short drive to everything in Kona. Around 5-7 minutes to Walmart and 10 minutes to the ocean, restaurants and shops. David, Kona Coast Vacations' concierge, was incredibly helpful. We exchanged numerous calls and dozens of emails and he was able to not only make recommendations, but book some of our activities. A few activities we did were Flumin' Kohala, Island Breeze Luau, and two of my small group did the Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour. All recommendations of David and all good. Do note, if you are going to do the Volcano hike, either pay for the "VIP Parking" or get a bicycle. Walking the road, while not difficult, just becomes burdensome, and if you want to see some possible lava flows, the odds are you'll be trekking over the lava rocks for a few miles on top of the 3-4 miles on the road each way.
Our overall experience was very good and I would definitively recommend Kona Coast Vacations, if for nothing else,... Date of Stay: 9/10/17 to 9/16/17

Fabulous Stay at Kamilo Place!!

by Kerri on 09/28/2017
Our experience was wonderful! The house was spotless and very well stocked. There were 7 adults that stayed here and nobody felt like we were tripping over one another. Plenty of space! My husband and I were here with our adult children and their friends, and the pool and outdoor area were a popular spot at nights for swimming and playing cards around the outside table. Communications with Kona Coast exceeded my expectations and everyone was so helpful and friendly. We would rent from them again in a heartbeat!

Well Maintained Grounds

by Steven on 09/26/2017
We have stayed at this location before, and knew what the location provided. We were pleased that the grounds were well maintained, and the unit was very clean and no sight of bugs. Air conditioning was welcome each day. Unit Management was prompt to respond to our request. Only issue was the landscape plants blocked the view of oncoming traffic coming southbound. It would improve safety to lower or remove so driver could see to pull-out into travel lanes. Dates of Stay: 9/13/17 to 9/22/17
Response from Management:

Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important positive feedback.   We have contacted the building management of Casa de Emdeko regarding the landscaping by the road and let them know. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay &  hope that we can welcome you again.

Delightful unit for our week away

by Amber on 09/25/2017
The unit was very clean and well appointed. We enjoyed the private beach access that came with the property. We also enjoyed the use of the 3 speed bikes and the proximity to the shops at Mauna Lani. Would stay here again. Date of Stay: 9/15/17 to 9/24/17

Simply gorgeous!

by Petra on 09/25/2017
View and location of the apartment are wonderful: you can hear the waves in your sleep. Decorated with a lot of taste and excellent materials, the place is equipped with everything you need for a great holiday: boogie-boards, snorkeling gear and beach chairs plus beach towles. Great! In the kitchen there is every kitchen utensil and gadget you can think off available - a veritable gourmet kitchen. It feels more like a home, than a flat for rent. The garden and pool are immaculately cared for, parking is right in front of the building. We would certainly like to come back and can highly recommend the apartment. Thanks for sharing this exceptional flat.

This is a great apartment, very spacious and located right on the cliffs. Its very well presented and clean, and if you look at the details and find the 360 degree tour, the information provided is completely accurate and you'll know exactly what to expect when you get there. The lanai/balcony was huge - with great views and made relaxing easy. As part of the service, Kona Coast also offers a concierge service - and they provided advice on activities and did the bookings. Nothing on this part of the holiday disappointed. Date of Stay: 9/12/17 to 9/17/17

Pictures don't do it justice, beautiful, spacious

by Stacey on 09/19/2017
The pictures for this villa do not do it justice. The condo is larger than it looks in the pictures. Very spacious and so well stocked. There was absolutely EVERYTHING you could want in the condo. The 2 pools were fantastic, the one closest to this condo is the quietest so we had the run of that pool. We never had to wait to use the bbq at the pool area. There are 9 bbq at the one pool and a couple at the quieter pool area. We chatted with some nice people while cooking dinner, that was great. The couches are very comfy as are the beds. Towels were thick and fluffy! There were extra pillows, towels whatever you needed. I enjoyed the little extras left to use at the beach, beach umbrellas, matts to lay on the sand, etc. The kitchen was very well stocked and a huge fridge for all your supplies! After a early morning snorkel (there are a ton of great snorkel places here within 10 mins) I sat on the upstairs lanai and had my tea, what a view! There is also a lanai off the dining room to eat dinner outside if you want. This condo is in a great location. Close to Kona and to the airport. Not far to get groceries (Costco) or to be in town. I loved that this was a very quiet location, it got busy on the long weekend and it was still quiet! I would highly recommend this condo, the management company checks in to see if you need anything. You feel very well cared for here. I hope to return soon! Thanks for sharing your beautiful condo. Date of Stay: 8/26/17 to 9/3/17

incredible time

by Cathy on 09/18/2017
We had an incredible time in Kailua-Kona and our condo at Hale Kona Kai was perfect. We stayed in 410 and it was wonderful. We especially enjoyed sitting on the lanai in the mornings and evenings! The condo is fully equipped with everything that you need, especially the kitchen. Having the beach chairs and beach towels was very nice. You can't beat this location...the sound of the ocean waves is so relaxing and you can walk everywhere. Wish we could have stayed longer...6 days went by too quickly! Mahalo Date of Stay: 9/9/17 to 9/15/17

Quality comfort

by Lois on 09/17/2017
Quality condo very well appointed with everything we could possibly imagine to meet our needs, great location, relaxing environment, very comfortable beds, breakfast and dinner on the lanai enjoying the sunrise and sunset. Great and safe neighborhood, excellent location and proximity to grill, pool & a multitude of snorkeling bays, star viewing on Mauna Kea, Saturday market in Waimea. Date of Stay: 8/25/17 to 9/13/17

This corner condo on the ocean was perfect. The place was clean and well maintained. It was stocked with everything we needed. Shore breezes made a summer stay bearable. We really like having the Green Flash coffee shop next door. Date of Stay: 9/4/17 to 9/8/17

very comfortable and well located condo

by Roger on 09/11/2017
We were familiar with it prior to renting it as friends had stayed there during earlier visits while we were renting unit #238. The condo is well maintained and the furnishing is very comfortable and easy to relax in. the lanai is terrific. Located where you get to great and chat with other residents/visitors. Any very easy to get to either pool. The only issue was nature caused; due to high surf the salt water pool was closed off and on during our stay. Not a huge issue since the regular pool is great. Made some new friends each day at the pool. This is our 7th or 8th visit to Cada de Emdeko. Can't say enough about the complex. We have gone to Maui and Kauai and keep coming back to Kona and The Casa. Looking forward to our next visit. Date of Stay: 8/31/17 to 9/8/17

We will be returning!

by Sara on 09/11/2017
We fell in love with the house with its beautiful landscaping and panoramic view. The entire family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. The kids especially had a great time. They didn’t want to leave the house to go to out to explore the island, since they were having so much fun at the pool and playing in the house. Each day started with the kids picking fresh oranges from the fruit trees and ended with a beautiful sunset dinner. For the adults, the house had great privacy and several outdoor sitting and eating areas. We cooked and barbecued a lot and the fully equipped kitchen had everything we needed. Also the 5 min drive to get to Kona restaurants, farmers market, made our stay very convenient. Date of Stay: Aug 2017

by Todd on 09/11/2017
The unit is right on the main street of Kailua-Kona (Ali'i Dr.) so you're in walking distance of all the restaurants, bars, and shops. There's no building directly across the street so the view from your balcony is all ocean. You even get a great view of the sunset since you're on the 7th floor (top floor of the building). Also, the balcony is fairly large and well furnished so you can really relax on the comfortable chairs while you take it all in. Or inside with air conditioning since the first level of the condo is wall to wall glass. Inside is well furnished with 3 comfortable chairs, a couch, and dinning table (4 chairs) in the main area. It's fairly spacious as our 2 year old took advantage of running around a lot. The kitchen is fully stocked (blender, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, pots, pans, measuring cups, etc.). There is a sound system throughout the place controlled by two ipods, i think. We didn't quite figure it out but when we turned it on it played Hawaiian music as default so we were happy. There is also a desktop computer. There is a second small patio out the door on the second level with beach equipment stored there. The second level is a loft but there are sliding doors that can be used to make the sleeping area private. Date of Stay: 8/21/17 to 8/27/17

by Susan on 09/11/2017
This property has so much to enjoy. This home is nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac amoungst local neighbors; it was quiet and private but if you are planning a party, this is not the home for you. It had four private bedrooms plus a pull out on the ground floor. Two kitchens, a full one on the main, a small one on the ground, three private bathrooms with the master upstairs having its own en suite and the bedroom on the ground floor serving as a very nice "mother-in-law" for the grand-parents travelling with us. But best of all, the home is stocked!! It has beach chairs, snorkeling equip, towels, pool noodles, golf clubs (2sets), kites, water shoes in many sizes, and we added three beach umbrellas. There are three coolers in the garage for your use and a great grill! If you will take care of these lovely things, this home will take great care of you. There are several guide books -- in fact there is a book about the island that we used as our local bible and we found places that we would have never found on our own. The home has a west facing lanai that was lovely for dining at sunset and big enough for our family of 8 but it did heat up the home a bit in the evening so run those fans so you can sleep. There is no a/c for us spoiled mainlanders as the power is very expensive there so open the many windows and let the cross ocean breezes cool the home. The cupboards are well stocked and even have several cooking staples so that you don't have to buy salt and pepper, just replace what you use. This was a last minute reservation for us as our previous reservation cancelled and the agency was very accommodating. The internet was a bit spotty at times, especially on the weekend. Wonderful stay and we will definitely go back to this home in the future as we return to the beauty and wonder of the Big Island. Date of Stay: 8/15/17 to 8/29/17

Our group of 6 truly enjoyed the Ailina house stay with the beautiful home and outdoor living. This location is about 10 minutes to Kona and near many great snorkeling beaches. The grandkids loved having the private pool and everything we needed to fix our own meals. We only wish there was one room with air-conditioning as it was a little muggy at times, although fans are available. Date of Stay: 8/21/17 to 8/30/17

by John on 09/11/2017
We stayed here with several other couples and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The open floor plan with direct ocean views was really a treat. This specific property had one of the nicer views and layouts that we could see by walking the sea wall that connects all homes in this property -but I'd bet that others are nice as well. The kitchen area is as fantastic as it looks in the photos and is perfect for feeding a crowd and watching the boats go by. The pool is small but adequate and well maintained. The service from the hosts was quick, friendly and competent. There was a wealth of info on where to go and eat etc.... all good advice and very helpful. We had no complaints and would stay again! One thing to note is there is no real beach to walk to other than near the airport which is "ok". There is a little cove area that you can wade with kids about a 5 minute walk South. Other than that it is lava rocks and low lava headlands that you can fish from right in front of your home -but are unsafe for swimming. Date of Stay: 8/25/17 to 8/30/17

The unit was as stated. The view, location and condo was perfect for our stay. We absolutely loved it and would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends. Only minor note we would make is that the master bedroom got pretty warm on hot days. The air didn't really reach it. But loved that there were beach chairs and an umbrella and mats to use for the beach along with few other items. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook some meals there. It was perfect for our toddler as well. Would highly recommend staying here. Date of Stay: 8/22/17 to 8/30/17

The place was comfortable and had everything needed! They kindly let us check in early, very friendly and timely response. Clean, well maintained and organized. Just be careful if you are looking for an air conditioned bedroom as there is only one A/C in the living/dining area (loud...! But seems like it's kind of standard here?). Also it's a partial ocean view. You don't really get the whole ocean view, but still I was happy with the place, thank you for your services! Dates of Stay: 9/2/17 to 9/5/17

We had a good stay at Kona Coast Vacations. The house was very clean and had everything we needed in the home (I.e kitchen stuff, bath and beach towels, detergent etc). There was no air conditioning the home, so it did get very warm in the home as well as at night, however there were extra fans in the home that we used which made it much easier to manage the humid heat. There was a situation that involved a pest. Kona Coast was very responsive and came to the home immediately after I called to notify them. They were very warm and offered to expense some damage that was made to personal belongings. Overall, we were pleased with the stay. Date of Stay: 9/3/17 to 9/6/17

Amazing Property That Did Not Disappoint!

by Teresa on 09/10/2017
Thank you to the home owner who opened up this fantastic home for us to enjoy! This house is amazing. It's so spacious and gorgeous that we didn't want to leave. It's well appointed and very well taken care of. The artwork is interesting and tasteful, wood floors are beautiful and we were thankful for the air conditioners. The pool and the hot tub were so wonderful we never even bothered to head to the beach. Don't pack a lot because you won't want to leave the house and the washer and dryer are super handy! The listing was accurate and the house was clean and well-maintained. Kona Coast Vacations was helpful the couple of times I called them to ask questions. We had no issues at all with this home and will definitely stay here again! We usually stay at the Fairmont Orchid so we aren't very familiar with this part of the island, but try Lava Java in Kailua-Kona. We enjoyed dining there a couple of times! Date of Stay: 9/4/17 to 9/11/17

Perfect fit!

by Felicia on 09/07/2017
Ideal for our vacation needs and then more. Gorgeous views and even without an air conditioner the ocean breeze flows right though. Perfect fit for a traveler who dislikes cramped resorts and likes to feel local with the comforts of home. Great pool and generous supply of towels and linen. Kona Coast Vacations were professional and there for us if we needed them while also being unobtrusive we could enjoy our stay. They also rescued us when we realized we left some clothing in the dryer. Would definitely stay again.

Hawaiian Dream Home

by Denise on 09/05/2017
This property is not only luxurious but has outstanding ocean view from all rooms and is decorated with the feel of Hawaii! Plenty of great amenities to start your stay. You can swim all day in the infinity pool or your just minutes away from other activities, beaches and restaurants. I would highly recommend this home and absolutely would stay here again when we come back to visit this gorgeous island. So much to see and do here!

Excellent Stay!!!

by Kristina on 09/03/2017
Excellent Stay! Every year we plan an annual family trip before the kids go back to school. My family stayed at The Hilton Waikoloa Village and my husband & I and father stayed in this darling condo. The condo had everything we needed; air conditioning, wifi & cable, large kitchen, beautiful views and washer/dryer etc. The highlighted features that were a huge bonus; short and easy walking distance to The Hilton Waikoloa Village and store, this condo complex has the best pool & hot tub and gym (we only saw a few people using these features during our full week stay). Super cool experience.....the landscapers were cleaning up the coconut palm trees and there were large coconuts everywhere, they let me take as many as I wanted and I learned how to cut open a young coconut. It was so easy and we had fresh cold coconut water all week. I highly recommend this condo and vacation rental company. Thank you for a fabulous stay and we will be back next year for sure!!! 

New favorite house to call home on the Big Island

by Eri on 09/01/2017
We had an absolutely wonderful time in this house during our stay in Hawaii. We've stayed in many vacation rentals, both in Hawaii and elsewhere in the world, but we can happily say that this was one of our best stays. The house is great in many ways - just a few minutes drive to the center of Kailua-Kona, panoramic and unobstructed view of the ocean, private space for everyone staying in the house, luxury finishes and amenities. We can certainly say that we have our favorite house to call home on the Big Island! We bbq'd quite a lot so we wanted an extra day of trash pick-up, which was arranged quickly for us. Overall, the experience was fantastic and we hope to be back soon. Date of Stay: August 2017

Cozy, clean beach condo in perfect location

by Anonymous on 08/31/2017
I was extremely happy with my stay here! Before our arrival we receive numerous very helpful emails confirming our reservation, with details for our arrival, and from the concierge with helpful tips as well as options to book activities in advance. I have to say the concierge service was an absolute game changer! David was even better than a hotel concierge and personalized our experience - helping us with every activity and question that we had! Having this service made it a no brainer that I would return. The condo itself is in a super ideal location - a short drive (or walk depending on time of day) from town. We found it very easy to get to the beaches, restaurants, bars, marina, etc. We also had parking outside the unit which made it easy to get in and out of the building. The unit itself was very clean and beach-but feeling! The two bedrooms each had large beds and nice, big TVs and fans. The TVs had roku hooked up so we could watch all our favorite shows and movies (honestly didn't check if there was cable but probably is!). The living room / dinning room / kitchen is an open floor plan which made it easy to host a lot of people and feel very home-y. The kitchen had all utensils we needed and everything was clean. We could open the door from the living room and we had a patio that we could use to walk out to the pool / sand / outdoor bar area. At night there are tiki torches that were lit and made it feel very Hawaiian when we shared a bottle of wine at the community tables. The pool itself is large and pretty too - right over the cliff of the ocean! Definitely would recommend and plan to stay there again. Thanks for the great trip!

We absolutely loved this spacious condo.

by Kirill on 08/31/2017

Wonderful house that had everything you could want

by Lori on 08/30/2017
This house was perfect for my family. Each person had different needs and all were met. My mom and sister walk with canes and this house is all one level. My niece wanted a pool and the pool at this house was great for all of us to enjoy. The view is beautiful. The house has everything you could want, including beach toys. It even had a crock pot so we cooked a nice roast for dinner one night. I'd definitely stay here again. Date of Stay: 8/20/17 to 8/26/17

Just a few words to thank your team and let you know how satisfied we were with the property during our stay in Kona. The apartment was spotless, well located and contained everything one would need for a great vacation with the family. We loved the lanai for breakfast in the morning while watching local surfers have a go at the waves! We would happily return if ever in the Kona region and would also recommend the apartment and your team to friends traveling to the Big Island.

Loved Every Minute Of Our Time In Kona

by Judith on 08/30/2017
This condo is outstanding. There was absolutely nothing we needed not inside or close by. Spotlessly clean and a delight to come back to each day after our outings. Breakfast on the balcony watching the dolphins was a very special treat for us. We would return in a second and very sad we live so far away or would return more often. A huge thank you

Great view, beautiful decor, clean and spacious!

by Cari on 08/29/2017
We recently stayed at the Beach Villas, in #1-303, a 3-bedroom penthouse unit. There are several condos in one building and this one is really lovely, has an amazing view and is just right if you want to stay right across from the beach but not spend a fortune. The condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. The rooms were just right for our famly and the lanai was absolutely the best spot in the house! The kitchen was perfect for entertaining - we just set yummy fruit and mai tais out on the big bar and everyone helped themselves. Having a full washer and dryer was nice since it gave us the luxury of having dry towels every time. The location is perfect - close to town and easy drive to any part of the island. Best of all, when we were not in the mood to go to the beach areas, the pool was the perfect place to lounge. The cost was reasonable - in fact, staying at a hotel would have been 3x the price, and we got to grocery shop in the local markets and enjoy food without spending a fortune. We loved this spot and will definitely rent it again. I do think it's important which one you stay in since they are all owned by different people, managed by different property places, and each with different views, decor and layouts.

Very clean and had everything that we needed!

by Richard on 08/28/2017
This condo was everything we could have wanted (other than being 'on the beach'). It was very clean and well maintained. Despite being one in a string of 'occupied' condos it was relatively quiet; didn't hear the neighbors. It was conveniently located for shopping (groceries, places to eat) and not far from downtown (which was pretty crowded). The rental cost was competitive and we'd consider staying here again in needing to be in or around Kona.

Gorgeous Vacation Home

by Kate on 08/27/2017
Just returned from our wonderful vacation in Kona. This home was fabulous. Great location, very quiet neighborhood and very spacious. There are two bedrooms in main part of home that are very private. We stayed in master suite and it was huge! The other two bedrooms are separate from the main part of the house giving them extreme privacy. Pool was fabulous. The Spa did not work for us, but we really didn't need it. Kitchen had everything you could want. House had a lot of beach towels and chairs for the beach and boogie boards. AC worked great in bedrooms. Took awhile to cool the main house down, but as long as all the doors are closed it worked great. It was also great having security at the front gate. Overall, I would highly recommend this vacation home to anyone. We just loved it!

Ians 50th Family Get together.

by Sue on 08/27/2017
We stayed at the property from 20/07/17 till 27/07/17. The property was exactly as the photos show. The property was very clean and well maintained. There were 8 of us staying together and at no point did we feel like we were on top of each other. The concierge was great, even able to recommend a dentist at short notice. Any issue was dealt with promptly by the rental team. The only thing we would suggest is a kettle for those people that do not drink coffee, but that's a really minor issue.

This was the best of the 3 units we rented during our Hawaiian vacations!

by Jean-Francois on 08/26/2017
This luxurious unit was recently renovated. All furnitures were very clean and comfy for our family of 5. This was the best of the 3 units we rented during our Hawaiian vacations! Many shops and restaurants located within few minutes of walk. Costco, Walmart and Safeway are within a few miles of driving. Need to take car to go to the beach. We have tried 4 of the recommended beaches in the condo book and were pleased with our choices. Both quiet and snorkelling beaches are within 45 minutes of driving distance both south and north of Kona Pacific.

Perfect Place to Stay!

by Frances on 08/25/2017
Casa de Emdeko 136 was the perfect place to stay. First off, the location was PERFECT. So close to the exciting town of Kona. Very easy to stop by an ABC convenience store late at night if we needed something...close to big department stores so we could get our mass hauls..and a short walk to the best coffee spots, breakfast hangouts, restaurants for lunch/drinks/dinner. The condo itself was fully stocked with everything we needed from towels to laundry items even a cooler for us to take on our picnic at the Volcano National Park. There were TVs in the living room and both bedrooms with Netflix and other streaming services available - which made it nice for when we just wanted to relax in bed for a few hours between activities or when we wanted to get to bed early for a long day. Even small conveniences like a light switch next to the bed!! That might have been one of my favorite features as who likes to get out of bed when you're comfortably settled? Love the backyard of the condo. There were torches lit at night, beach chairs for us, even a fun little bar open when we wanted to enjoy our own drinks privately. The views from our own backyard were incredible. Lastly, David with Kona Concierge felt like my personal vacation Siri. He offered great recommendations, helped book our activities and plan our daily itineraries...but he even answered every single random detail question I had, down to what should I order at this restaurant? Even while out and about if I got lost or had a real-time question, he was there and very welcoming We never met in person but I let like I left the island with a good friend and a vacation Siri for next time. Will definitely come here again and would recommend to all!! Date of Stay: 8/12/17 to 8/18/17

The place is fantastic!

We had a great time here. The condo is really clean, quiet and well-maintained with enough equipment that we need. In addition, A/C was pretty useful especially in the daytime even though we enjoyed wonderful breezes in the morning and at night. The resident manager, Dave, was nice and kind, he kindly opened the canned spaghetti sauce for us when we couldn't find the canned opener in the kitchen! We would love to stay in the unit again when we go to the Big Island next time. Thank you very much for everything!

This condo on the top floor was perfect. AC in mainroom and in bedroom were helpfull. Also appreciate the ceiling fans. Description and pictures are accurate. In a storage on the balcony, there are many beach accessories (look under the bed for long chair) We have seen 2 other units and A32 is the best ! All king of restaurants and boutiques are at a walking distance. Grocery store at 5 min. in car. Other big stores (Costco, Wallmart, Target, Ross...) are at 15-20 minutes in car. If you choose Big Island, this is the place for you. Date of Stay: 8/8/17 to 8/21/17

Very nice

by Mireille on 08/23/2017
Very nice condo, newly remodelled with everyting you need. The only thing missing is AC in the bedroom to be able to close the bedroom door. Date of Stay: 8/8/17 to 8/20/17

Great Location!

by Mark And Carmen on 08/22/2017
This home delivered on all of our expectations...Beautiful sunsets, close to restaurants, beach to hang out on, crashing waves, quiet and safe, and comfy bed. Simply wonderful!

Everything was wonderful

by Giuseppina on 08/22/2017
Everything was wonderful at the condo we stayed at. It was clean and comfortable. We just would have liked to have basics in the fridge like condiments. I would definitely refer Kona Coast Vacations to my family and friends. Date of Stay: 8/12/17 to 8/18/17.

Kona home

by Clifton on 08/22/2017
Beautiful home everything was great except no AC in the main floor. That is where the master bedroom was and my elderly parents had that room. It was quite warm. Everything else was fantastic! Date of Stay: 8/1/17 to 8/6/17

Beautiful place and the view was more then fabulous!

by Carmen on 08/22/2017
The view the fact we saw Dolphins and Manta Ray with the light that shines and amazing array of fish! The location is perfect close to everything and you feel so at home not just like a tourist!

Amazing Time

by Toni on 08/22/2017
I had such an amazing time at our vacation home.

Amazing stay at Kona Alii 705

by Matthew on 08/22/2017
My wife and I wanted to leave a review for our amazing stay at Kona Alii 705. Our lodgings were spotlessly clean, every possible need was anticipated and provided for, and the views and location were spectacular. We were hugely impressed by the customer service from your team and our family (us and my wife's parents) were extremely happy during our time spent there. The only drawback (which wasn't a huge deal to us since my wife and her mom are from the islands), was the little critters living under the sink and the cockroach droppings on the stack of trash liners that were there on our arrival. Otherwise, everything was truly amazing! Thank you again for letting us stay there! Date of Stay: 8/16/17 to 8/20/17
Response from Management:   Mahalo for taking the time to submit your review of the property.  We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay & that you choose Kona Coast Vacations for your accommodations.   All properties are on a preventive pest control maintenance program & it may be time for the unit to be serviced again. The cleaning staff has been alerted to the issue under the sink so we will get that taken care of.  Thank you for letting us know.    Again, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you back again.

Kona Coast Vacations

Beautiful Home in a Perfect Location!

by Imke on 08/21/2017
We had a wonderful time staying at this amazing vacation rental with some great friends. We had high expectations from the pictures provided, but the house was even more beautiful in person. We realized quickly that this was not your typical rental. Everything inside the property looked brand new and high quality, from the furniture to the appliances. Having 3 master suites and a large common area, made traveling with friends easy. The suites were large and comfortable, but the showers in each attached bath, added a luxurious bonus that cannot be forgotten. In addition to being nicely furnished, the homeowner has provided all of the small details, from a well stocked kitchen to all the necessary daily amenities. Being within walking distance to amazing beaches, golf, shopping, and restaurants made the trip even more enjoyable. The community pool (with a waterfall and spa) is located right next to the property, and also provides a small kitchen and a couple large gas BBQs to grill on. We loved the option of going on adventures or just relaxing at this beautiful property. Staying at this rental made our vacation so much more enjoyable and relaxing. We definitely will not be staying at a hotel on the Big Island ever again! We cannot wait to go back!! Date of Stay: 7/11/17 to 7/18/17

Had a wonderful time at Casa de Emdeko 315

by Meike on 08/20/2017
Great Apartment directly located at the Ocean -watching Dolphins from the Lanai during breakfast: priceless! Close to Kona and all Bars, Restaurants and stores.

Great location

by Dan on 08/20/2017
Secluded yet close to grocery and shopping. Beautiful location.

Beautiful

by Alexandra on 08/20/2017
Beautiful condo located above the pool looking directly at the ocean.

Is this the best place to stay in Kona? I think so!

by Trausti on 08/19/2017
The house looks even better than the pictures, and the views from the backyard are amazing, every night we had unobstructed view of a beautiful sunset. The house is loaded with amenities, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a grate air condition with 4 individual zones, large TV with good sound system, the swimming pool and hot tub where excellent, and it only took few minutes to heat the water in the hot tub. This is a house that was build with care and everything is of high quality. We really enjoyed our 10 day stay. There was a one minor hiccup, the first morning we realized that the propane tank for the house was empty and we could not use the stove or heat the hot tub. We contacted the host, and the issue was resolved within 2 hours. If we come again to Kona we will return to this house.

Excellent service - amazing location - fantastic family vacations- everything was perfect

by Yvan on 08/19/2017
Amazing place - perfectly located, safe, amazing view, very private and quiet. So much room for everyone. Perfect family breakfasts and dinners with the ocean view every day plus what about the gorgeous sun sets from from the lanai! Great family time, Kona is where to stay on Big Island. Everything was there in the kitchen plus beach gears too. We loved it

Wonderful!

by Blake on 08/18/2017
The pictures for this place do not do it justice! Big, light bathroom with large closet, 2 sinks, and beautiful shower! Bed is large and great size room. Can see ocean from front door and sliding door. Washer, dryer were great. Awesome kitchen. Everything worked well. Wonderful supply of things you need and then some. Hot water that lasts a LONG time is hard to find in condos!. Walk right out to the ocean. Great saltwater pool. Great distance from town, can walk to town but away from the traffic and hustle. Can go for runs along alii drive. Coffee close and small store for liquor and snacks. Grounds keepers working hard every day, plus security at night was very on top of people and friendly. The central A.C. was a big plus. Also fans in each room! So much in one place this is a steal, you won't be disappointed! Will be back next time! Our favorite place we have stayed yet!

Fantastic house! It fit our needs perfectly. Staff was very helpful

by Ashley on 08/17/2017
Beautiful house located in a quiet residential neighborhood close to the bay and within minutes of great beaches and shopping. Upon arriving the house was very clean neat and it had a wide assortment of amenities. Would recommend to any large group or large family as the common areas were quite spectacular and provided more than enough room for all people

Oceanfront, Incredible Views, Nicely Updated

by Dawn on 08/17/2017
We had five adults in our group, and stayed for a week. The condo was spacious, and even more beautiful than the pictures show. It was so safe that we opened up the doors and windows in the evening to let air flow through. The location was perfect and close to everything. I was so impressed to see the pool being cleaned every morning. The grounds were absolutely beautiful! We saw dolphins playing in the ocean from our lanai the first day. Beach towels were provided, and we really appreciated all the amenities. It did get warm in the evening, but around midnight with the fans, it became cool enough for covers. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and cannot say enough good things about this condo. Great central point for traveling to various places on the island. Excellent value for our wonderful stay on the Big Island!!! We would definitely like to stay again in the future.

PARADISE with an extraordinary view!

by Jay on 08/15/2017
From the moment we stepped through the door, we knew we found the perfect location on the Big Island. The house is beautiful and the decor is just perfect. The kitchen was well stocked and the outdoor space is gorgeous. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us, and we enjoyed the pool (although a bit cold...) and the hot tub. It was an overall great location as all activities were just a short drive away.

Excellent vacation rental!

by Kazuhide on 08/14/2017
Although the outside appearance of the building was a bit rough, we were very pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and all the creature comforts in this condo. First, location is excellent and most popular locations in Kona are within walking distance. Second, it is right on the shoreline, so lots to see. All the amenities in the condo should be enough for any family or group. I would highly recommend this place to anyone considering the Kona area.

Fantastic Kona vacation

by Laurie on 08/14/2017
We loved this unit. It was right on the shore, and terrific for a 2-year old. Good location and well-stocked.

A wonderfully relaxing vacation

by Kirsten on 08/14/2017
My husband and I and 3 teenagers stayed at this house for 10 days and really enjoyed the comfortable, well-appointed, clean house and pool. I would definitely come back to enjoy this property. The neighborhood is a nice mix of rental homes and local residents and I loved walking the hills and enjoying the views every morning. The only potential downside was a little traffic noise from the highway which is a couple of blocks below the house, but that may account for the fair price for the home, given how well-appointed it is. We loved sitting on the lanai each evening and enjoying the fantastic sunset views. A special shout-out to the property management company that was very attentive and accommodating to our schedule and helpful with an "expired" mongoose we had by the pool toward the end of our stay. Date of Stay: 7/20/17 - 7/30/17

Wonderful secluded location.

by Thomas on 08/13/2017
Entire staff was very responsive. Beach/lagoon was less than a minute walk. Water was very warm (in the summer), saw many types of fishes in the shallow lagoon.

Blue Water at Kona Estates

by Linda on 08/13/2017
This property is in a terrific location. Close to beaches, shopping, restaurants. This year was a return trip to the same property (that should be evidence of how much we love it here). Would definitely return. Kids loved the pool and Keiki Beach (a two minute walk from the house). Enjoyed gorgeous sunsets pool-side in the evenings. On this trip we enjoyed fishing, snorkeling, zip-lining at Umauma Falls, a day trip to the volcano and Black Sand Beach, and simply relaxing in this ocean-front home.

Highly recommended. Beautiful place, all the amenities, great location.

by Susan on 08/11/2017
Highly recommended. Beautiful place, all the amenities, great location. Would definitely go back. My only comment: it would be lovely if they stocked just very minimal, very basic cooking supplies like salt, pepper and oil. It's a small thing and prevents having to buy large amounts that won't get used. We left our oil and pepper behind for the next guests. Wonderful experience overall.

Family Vacation in Paradise

by Christopher on 08/11/2017
My husband and I and our 2 sons (17 & 20) visited the big island for our family vacation. We were all very happy with Villa #2403 and look forward to returning!
The villa is very clean, comfortable, and spacious. The kitchen is fully stocked - owner has provided everything! Beach towels, pool towels, beach chairs, sun umbrella, and cooler are all provided. The master suite lanai has a great view of the lava rocks, palms, golf course, and mountains. It's a great place to have a glass of wine and relax.
My sons enjoyed going to the fitness center and pools which are both just a short stroll away from the villa. Waikoloa Colony Villas are in a great location - close to beaches, restaurants, and shops. Our family loves to snorkel and hike so each day we picked a different beach to explore or trail to hike.
You will definitely need a car to travel to some of the hiking spots and remote beaches. Volcano National Park is a must see and is about a 2.5 hour drive away. Beach 69 and A'Bay are some of our favorite beaches. I recommend stocking up on groceries at the Safeway in Kona once you get to the airport. There are 2 markets close to the villas but they are best for picking up just a few items. Don't miss the Mai Grille (across the street) - farm to table restaurant! Lava Lava Beach Club is perfect for lunch on the beach.
Looking forward to returning to the island. 

We really like this home.

by Phillip on 08/10/2017
We really like this home. It was definitely the most well-equipped from a kitchen standpoint of all the homes we've rented. We loved the amazing few and open-air nature of the home. We really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful Secluded Home

by Mona W on 08/10/2017
We stayed at Kona Peppa for 2 weeks in July. It's a lovely home (exactly as pictured) with amazing sunset and water views. Beautiful grounds and well stocked, well cared for home!

Great House

by Ann on 08/08/2017
House looks just like the pictures. Very clean and comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped. Management was very attentive. Sunsets were beautiful from the back yard.

Amazing Vacation

by Lisa on 08/08/2017
What a beautiful place!! The lanai was great, we spent most of our time there enjoying the comfy outside seating and the beautiful views. The unit has a great kitchen with everything you need. The bathrooms have been nicely updated. The master has a rain shower that was so nice. The location is perfect. It is super quiet and relaxing but yet has many amenities close by. Alli drive was easy to access with all the tourist shops. My Daughter got a henna done at Kona Henna super fun and looks great. Kona Coast Vacations were great to work with and super responsive with any of our needs. The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained. Jimmy the property manager was very friendly and welcoming. He and his staff kept the pool area in pristine conditions. I would highly recommend this unit and Kona Coast vacations.

Perfect Big Island Paradise!

by Tess & Ray on 08/08/2017
A five star, luxurious and well-equipped property in the perfect location. This condo boasts 3 large bedrooms all with gorgeous ensuites and is close to everything (golf, beach, shopping, walking, and more). Spacious and beautifully furnished inside and out, private balconies and lanais onto green space are your private oasis. Private, gated swimming pool steps away. Our stay could not have been better! Date of Review: aug 8, 2017. Date of Stay: Feb 2017

Close to shopping and amenities

by Katsuji on 08/08/2017
Close to Keauhou shopping center supermarket and many restaurants were there no need to drive Long way to get food or beverage. Room were large enough for 3 adults and 2 kids. Room were bit hot during stay, There were no AC on this site but, it's normal in Hawaii, especially 2nd floor living room and loft bet room need fan for good sleep.

Fairway Villas L32

by Kevin on 08/07/2017
Very nice stay. Great location and unit.

This house was great!

by Kayla on 08/07/2017
This house was great! Had everything we needed and more. Only down side was there was no ac.

...will definitely use Kona Coast Vacations in my future Big Island visits

by Charles on 08/05/2017
Great location & amazing condo that had everything a vacationing couple could want and only a few minutes walk into Kona...a great all-round stay. The folks at Kona Coast Vacations were also very polite and helpful throughout the stay. I will definitely use them again next time we visit the Big Island.

Amazing!

by Josh on 08/05/2017
Better than advertised.

Absolutely perfect!

by Wendell And Susan on 08/04/2017
Spacious, nice king bed, super clean, completely updated, well-stocked, lovely lanai. We enjoyed an enchanted month-long stay and this condo was perfect. My only regret was having to leave! Casa de Emdeko is a true gem and this has to be one of the best rooms available. If you love the Big Island, you just found the perfect place to call home during your stay! Kona Coast Vacations made everything super easy in a very personable and professional manner.

A Fabulous Property to have the pleasure of staying at for 2 wks

by Alan on 08/04/2017
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The property, from the gated entrance to the details of the house itself was wonderful. You pay a lot for this place (especially of there are only 2 of you) but the price is competitive and I cannot imagine a better place to stay on the Big Island. A definite step up from Keahou Estates which I have rented houses in a few times in the past. Date of Review: Jan 23, 2017. Date of Stay: Jan 7, 2017 to Jan 21, 2017

Aloha! Paradise on the Big Island!

by Nancy on 08/04/2017
We enjoyed this beautiful property for 10 days! We wished we could have stayed forever. The house was spotless, comfortable and fully equipped with all amenities needed for a wonderful vacation. The tropical view of the ocean was enhanced by the beauty of the infinity pool. Each moment was a experience that is only available in paradise. The location was in close proximity to Kona, restaurants, shopping, farmers market, boating, snorkeling and so many other possibilities. I look forward to our next visit. I recommend this property for anyone who loves the Big Island! Mahalo Date of Review: Aug 3, 2017. Date of Stay: Jul 20, 2017 to Aug 1, 2017

Exceeded our expectations

by Mark on 08/03/2017
My wife and I had the privilege of staying at the Island Villas unit K1 in early April of 2016.
It exceeded our expectations as it came complete with three massive king bedrooms all with their own deluxe ensuite. An upper floor office/workspace with an amazing handcrafted desk for those days where a bit of work follows you to the Island. A generous living/eating area with more space than you can use with doors opening from two locations to your private lanai.
Modern kitchen outfitted with all the amenities of home and more for those days when you want to be creative with the Island fare and eat at home. Double driveway for parking a vehicle should you decide you need one but with everything in walking distance you could honestly survive without one.
Within close walking distance: An independent, well stocked, reasonably priced grocery store. A shopping centre with almost everything you may need including some of Hawaiis best coffee. Several excellent restaurants. An amazing spa/healthclub.
We gave this facility an in-depth tour and came away with this: A great lane/lap pool, a deluxe cardio workout area with plenty of the newest machines out there. A fully stocked weight area, 6 tennis courts, and a spa and massage area where they can do inside or outside completely private treatments. A spectacular facility to say the least, and just two minutes walk. The three beaches of Mauna Lani are in walking distance and will take you through an area of an old lava flow and fish ponds. Pictures simply do not do these views justice.
The Beach: We are fans of the beach for several reasons, and Mauna Lani has three terrific beaches, we primarily used the one closet to the beach club parking. This one has great, beach-water access, has an excellent swimming area and offers amazing snorkelling. I have snorkelled all over the world, and for ease and access, this beach offers a variety of sea life second to none, and in a quiet bay where even the youngest or least experienced snorkeler will fall in love with this place.
The Golf: Two amazing golf courses, we played: the North course twice and the South course once. I love the contrast of blue skies, brilliant green fairways and the black lava that the courses have been carved into, but the most breathtaking golf holes I have ever seen are located on the back nines of both courses. Some par 3 holes, a couple that are carved along the ocean that you could never tire of looking at. I look forward to playing both of these spectacular courses again and again.
It is my sincere intention to make a vacation at the Islands K1 Villa at Mauna Lani a must do every year from now on. It is a beautiful home away from home.

Luxury Paradise

by Matthias on 08/03/2017
The Condo is clean, spacious and we have loved to sit on the lanai and watch the ocean. The location is perfect. It is just a few steps to Kona.

We are definitely going to rent again!

by Wendy on 08/03/2017
I stayed at K1 in April 2017. I took my two adult daughters with me. We were the second guests to stay after the major renovation. I saw the before pictures and even toured another unit while I was there and K1 was totally transformed from a 1980s decore into a clean spacious and contemporary look and layout. The bathrooms, especially the walk in showers, were most impressive. Each bedroom with a king bed and its own ensuite was truly a treat for us!
It was easy to feel like home in the villa. Every amenity was provided: fridge condiments, shampoo, conditioner, body wash. Even bathrobes! Thought and care was put into this rental and it showed.
KCV were great in communicating with us before, during and after our stay.
The Islands pool complex was a great way to spend quiet time after a day at the beach. The pool is free form and meanders; landscaped with lush Hawaiian greenery and lava rock featuring a waterfall and grotto. The 10 person jetted spa tub is worth a soak at the end of a hard beach day. The modern shaped lounge chairs with large umbrellas makes for a great place to relax and read a book. The state of the art bbq & kitchen facilities, dining & lounge area is another surprising plus with renting at The Islands and made for a great second social place to gather with friends and family. In the pool area you can host your own pool & bbq party! The pool itself is 200 steps from K1. The pool was rarely occupied. It was like having my own private pool.
I really enjoy the Mauna Lani area. I can stroll over from K1 and get my morning latte and croissant, step into the Foodkand for some groceries and check out the clothing at Tommy Bahamas. Happy hour at Ruth's Chris and Tommy Bahama was popular for us. Tastes bites, refreshing cocktails at great prices. Sunsets were incredible!
I loved the walk to the private beach club on the path through the lava rock and then through the sacred fishing grounds. I found the special place in the fish ponds where you can sit with your feet in the water and the tiny fish nibble the callouses off. The private beach club has a restaurant for lunch and supper and clean and modern washrooms fully accessible by beach patrons.
My daughters and I rented paddle boards at the beach and saw amazing sea life when snorkeling.
We are definitely going to rent again!

Overall condo was very nice & spectacular view

by Terry on 08/02/2017
The only negative issue had to do with the cleaning. Those areas that get missed, like underneath the couch where I found (noticed only because I was doing floor exercises) several macadamia nuts and the bathroom ceiling light fixture had a lot of dust & dirt in it making the bathroom lighting even dimmer. I took care of cleaning up both of these issues. The bathroom could use higher watt light bulbs. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies. The storage chest on the lanai had beach equipment which we appreciated. Date of Review: Feb 2, 2017 Date of Stay: Dec 2, 2016 to Dec 15, 2016

A great mistake

by Arlene on 08/02/2017
I thought I was renting at Waikoloa Fairway Villa and almost drove there. But my daughter read the directions and screamed we're up at the Village and not by Queen's Market!! Well the atmosphere was bleak as disappointment set in. We drove up to the Village in silence and found our condo. When we opened the door, we were pleasantly surprised. It was really nice and comfy with two bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The enclosed patio made the condo really roomy. The pool, located really nearby, was really nice and practically all to ourselves. The entire family was happy with my mistake! We had a great time!! We'll be back to this condo for sure!!

Clean, comfortable, quiet property

by Jim on 08/01/2017
Casa de Emdeko #208 - clean, comfortable, quiet property. Often had the saltwater pool to ourselves. Kona Coast Vacations replaced a defective blender same day we called, and were ready to answer any questions we might have. Would go back to the Casa. Date of Stay: 7/16/17 to 7/29/17

You won't be disappointed!

by Stephanie on 08/01/2017
This house is absolutely beautiful!! My husband and I brought three other couples with us and had a wonderful time! We loved everything about it! Have nothing negative to say....if we ever come back, we would definitely rent this home again!!

Still my go to place in Kona

by Wendy on 08/01/2017
This is the third time we have stayed in this complex but first time in this unit and it was great. Lots of space, perfect views. This unit had lots of beach extras like snorkels and boogie boards. Only two minor issues: the twin beds in the one room are very short and not suitable for anyone over 5'2". And there were only 4 beach towels, two of which were very worn and significantly frayed. Date of Stay: 7/23/17 to 7/30/17

Aloha!  On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important positive feedback.   We will be updating the beach towels based on your feedback.  On your next visit, please know that we are available if you need us or if you think the unit is lacking some items. We are happy to help!  We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay &  hope that we can welcome you again.

great place for a family!

AirBnb Review

by Ben on 07/31/2017
We stayed at this house with 3 other couples and it was amazing! We really liked how each bedroom had a private bath and all the bedrooms were very nice with great beds. The kitchen and dinning rooms were great for our group and the pool and hot tub were fantastic to hang out in, especially to watch the sunsets. A little bit of a drive to get to downtown Kona, but quite close to some of the ocean excursions. Kona Coast Vacations did a great job - the house was super clean when we got there and they were very responsive to the couple of questions/issues we had. More than worth the price - we would definitely stay here again. Date of Stay: 7/15/17 - 7/22/17

The view

by Matthew on 07/30/2017
The only problem was the wifi and the TV set up . The wifi went out most of our vacation and they sent out a guy to fix it but still the same. If u have teenagers its a must. Then working the tv is like trying open a safe with no combination!!! . But the house and its views are the best ever and the house was great with everything u can think u . I would go back but they would have to solve the wifi and tv issues. Dates of Stay: 7/6/17 to 7/14/17
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 work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience and are very sorry about the wi-fi and t.v. issues. We would have loved to have had a chance to effect repairs immediately, but unfortunately, we were not informed of the problem until the day before your departure. The wi-fi router has been replaced and the home’s guide book examined to make sure that the TV operation is well explained. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope that we can welcome you again.

Kona Coast Vacations

Home away from home

by Tara on 07/27/2017
The condo was in great condition, clean and well kept. The location was excellent: close to Waimea, the beautiful beaches along the Kohala coast, Saddle Road to go to Hilo and of course going into Kona. The area of the condo was safe and secure and the onsite pool and bbq area is well kept and in excellent condition. When we were not at the beach we were at the pool. Mahalo for the home away from home, we hope to return soon! Date of Review: Jul 26, 2017 Date of Stay: Jul 6, 2017 to Jul 20, 2017

Exceptional Kona Oasis

by Jeffrey on 07/25/2017
Our family has been renting vacation homes both here and on Oahu for several years now and this house has been the best by far! This is the first time I have ever rated a vacation rental as "exceptional" but in this case it fits the bill. When we first arrived, we found everything very clean and neat. Everything was as pictured and even better. The pool was great! We went for a swim everyday to cool off from the hot Kona weather. Lots of pool toys to use for your kids. The outside patio was a fun gathering place for everyone, and we made good use of the BBQ grill too. The yard was also very enjoyable to walk around in. The landscaping was beautiful with many fruit trees and fragrant flowers to see and smell. There were pikake, plumeria, and tiare flowers. The vendors they use for the pool, and landscaping are top notch too. The furnishings are nice and comfortable. The beds were comfortable as well and we were able to get a good nights rest on them. There towels well stocked and there was more than enough for everyone. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook complete meals. And this time we even got to use the garage to park our car. This is a very quiet, private neighborhood that's gated so you feel safe as well. The only thing that could have made it better would be an additional ac unit for the living room. Kona does get warm in the summer. Other than that, I highly recommend this rental for anyone that wants to stay in Kona. Shopping and dining is just 5-10 minutes away Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Age 55+, Families with Teenagers

Great view and spacious

by Karen on 07/23/2017
The rental was everything we needed--convenient to Kona, lots of space, a pool, and great view. The only drawback was the house did get a bit hot during the day without any A/C. The extra fans helped, but some nights it held the heat and it was a bit uncomfortable. Also, the outdoor furniture was cheap and uncomfortable. Date of Stay: 7/7/17 to 7/20/17

Awesome family vacation for a big family-Mahalo!

by Aidan on 07/21/2017
After arriving from a long plane ride, we arrived at this amazing beautiful home! Very modern and spacious, enough to accommodate a family of 6. A guest apartment for our son and fiance which was perfect for their privacy. The home was perfect for our family breakfast, lunch, and dinners. The pool and jacuzzi put an essential ambiance for the perfect sunset as well as morning coffee. Having your home cooked meals and "hanging out" in a home setting set this vacation apart from others. I might add, the walk along the Alii highway adds to the experience because there is so much to see, eat, shop, and do on your way to down town Kona life. We had such an awesome vacation because it felt like home away from home even though we were so far away... A must if you want to have a vacation without the hotel aggregation!

All we hoped for!

by Drew on 07/21/2017
The house and setting are all we hoped it would be! We loved walking down into the village for coffee, driving to Kona for dinner, volcano National Park, Waipio Valley, Kua Bay, kayaking and snorkeling! All the fruit trees and flowers give this place the feeling of paradise. How I wish we had this view and could leave the windows open all day at home. Thank to all our hosts and guides here in Hawaii.

Fun!!

by Karen on 07/21/2017
This is our yearly vacation for relaxation and getting our Hawaii fix! The weather was a perfect 89 degrees! We loved traveling from Waikoloa to Hilo on the Daniel Highway. It takes half the time, or shaves off 45 minutes compared to driving around the island PLUS you pass through some beautiful neighborhoods in Hilo! We most enjoyed snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay with Fair Wind Cruises and visiting the Black Sand Beach! We would recommend the Hilo Zoo - it is free! Its very beautiful and you can also picnic there! Senseis Sushi at the Queens Marketplace was phenomenal! Our favorite memories include playing on the boogie boards and checking out the geckos on the lanai at breakfast time! If you get groceries, check out the Island Gourmet Market across the street at the Queens Marketplace! It has everything you need from groceries to gifts! You can get very reasonably meals there! Fairway villas is a great place - nice and quiet, clean, beautiful. This is our 2nd time here and we LOVE it. The condo was super comfortable and we really enjoyed every minute. It felt like home.

Kona Bliss

by Donald on 07/18/2017
Unbelievable vacation spot. The house was wonderful. It was a fully equipped house with everything you'll need for all your meals. We only ate out three times all week, the rest of the days we just enjoyed the location and views. The pool with the swim up grill and bar was our lunch time spot after coming in from our secluded beach. We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the entire property. The only slight drawback was that the extra rooms were not air-conditioned, however, they had plenty of fans to make it comfortable. The master bedroom was better than expected and very spacious. They had 24 hour security so you felt very safe with all the windows open. Also, it is only a 15 minute walk to Kona city center. I would rent this house again hands down over any of the local resorts.

A relaxing, residential retreat

by Greg on 07/17/2017
This is a very pleasant place to stay. We enjoyed the quiet, peaceful atmosphere. It is conveniently located, yet doesn't feel like you're in with the rest of the tourists. We wanted to live more like locals this time, and definitely had that experience! Thank you for your hospitality.

Wonderful Location

by Richard on 07/17/2017
This is a great condo with a lot of room. We loved the waterfront and the little beach just steps away was great for a quick swim with sea turtles. We did have a few bugs in the kitchen, but you need to keep the garbage empty and all food packaged away. I would recommend this condo to anyone.

Lovely holiday penthouse

by Anna on 07/15/2017
Our family of four had a fantastic few days in the kahalu'u Ali'i penthouse. The apartment is exactly as seen in the photos. Everything was spotlessly clean and the lanai was a really lovely place to eat and relax watching the sun set.
We were a bit concerned about the location near the road before arriving but the noise wasn't a problem at all- just a bit of care needed crossing with the children.
We spent our early mornings snorkeling over the road where the fish and turtles were beautiful. We also enjoyed visiting two step and beaches further north. The rental really is in a great location.
The booking process was easy and efficient.
Coming from the U.K. I am not sure we will get back to Hawaii but if we ever do we would love to stay in the apartment again!

Nice large condo in great location!

by Karen on 07/15/2017
The condo is very nice and big! The size is great and location even better. Right across the street from the best beach in Kona. Only complaint is that the couch and chair cushions in the family room were all flat. Fortunately, we didn't need to have anyone sleep on the couch bed, it would have been very uncomfortable! The condo was furnished with a nice cooler (that we used everyday), some pool noodles and one nice boogie board. It was a great place to stay!

Great place to stay in Kona!

by Jean on 07/14/2017
Wonderful private house with pool in Kona!!! 

Great view, great location, well equipped rental

by Stephen on 07/14/2017
We spent 10 days here and found the unit very comfortable. Excellent view of the ocean from the lanai and couch. The bed was awesome, one of the most comfortable mattresses I ever slept on. Date of Review: Jul 12, 2017. Date of Stay: June 20, 2017

Beautiful

by Pamela on 07/14/2017
Well maintained, good-looking condo with everything you need! Great lanai to sit and watch the tides and hear the surf on the rocks. It was a perfect getaway for two! Reviewed: July 17, 2016. Date of Stay: July 3, 2016.

Big island - great house

by Brian on 07/14/2017
Excellent stay for the whole family.

Amazing home and great stay!

by Patti on 07/14/2017
This is an incredible house and VERY well appointed! I was impressed with the fact they had so many kitchen items (never seen a slow cooker in a rental before!). The house is comfortable, very clean, nice furnishings and the landscape is gorgeous. We will definitely be back!

Kona Getaway

by Kevin on 07/14/2017
Fabulous house and location in Kailua. Just minutes from downtown and we really appreciated the gated community. Highly recommend. 

Clearly a Home Away from Home

by Donna on 07/14/2017
We truly enjoyed our stay in this home. There were four of us and plenty of room both in the house, on the patio and around the pool. The mattresses were excellent so everyone had great sleeps. The rental was well equipped, with the exception of the towels which we felt were scratchy and needed replacing. Also, a beautifully decorated home in a great location. Very central to everything in the heart of Kona in a gated community. We would definitely stay in this home again!

Vacation Paradise

by Cheryl on 07/12/2017
The property description was spot on. We had 9 in our party and we never felt crowded. Very spacious loved that we all had our own bathroom! The property was spotless. We had a couple of minor issues that were resolved before we could hang the phone up. Great customer service. Can't wait to return. Loved our dolphin encounter, drive to Hilo, exploring the volcanoes, kayaking adventure, parasailing, mantarae dive, Splashers, Lava Lava Beach Club, Bubba Gumps, and all the amazing beaches!

Very nice home, fantastic location

by Victoria on 07/10/2017
Very nice home, super high-end homes location, gated community but the home needs updating. Sink garbage disposal needs rubber insert as food starts flying to your face when you use it. The home could use an A/C as it gets pretty warm there in the month of July. Driveway design is crazy S shape and if you are not careful you will hit the concrete wall. The house is situated close to a busy street so there's always car noise present. Other than that, its a beautiful home with an awesome view.

Amazing hawaii 2017

by Pamela on 07/04/2017
Our experience at the bay watch house was so amazing. Everything we wanted and more. I have always wanted to stay in a home on the big island and for my retirement that is what we did. Including my grandkids and family what a forever memory for all of us. Date of Stay: 6/24/17 to 7/2/17

We LOVED this condo!

by Cindi & Gordon on 07/04/2017
It is close to everything, yet when we returned from an outing it was very quiet! Several times we had the pool to ourselves! The manicured yard is simply beautiful with constant upkeep! Our condo was very spacious and clean! It was well stocked with everything we needed and the furnishings were very comfortable! I'd definately recommend this condo to anyone staying in Kona area!

Great vacation

by Jim on 07/01/2017
Our family had a really nice time.

AirBnb Review

by Thomas on 06/30/2017
This was our first time going through a property management company on Airbnb (as opposed to working directly with the owner). We have always had excellent experiences using Airbnb and this time was no different. The level of service and communication we received from Kona Coast Vacations was unparalleled. Everything was handled smoothly and professionally. And they were so kind as to give us a welcome gift basket upon arrival! Thankfully, we encountered no problems whatsoever during our stay. But if we had, I am confident that they would have been handled promptly. The listing itself was out of this world. For the price, and even for twice the price, it was well worth it! The views, the comfort, and the spaciousness certainly made this our most memorable place to stay during our trip to Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island. Pictures certainly do not do this place justice! Highly recommend! Date of Stay: 6/3/17 to 6/7/17

Wonderful

by Lee D on 06/30/2017
Great time in your place. We had a wonderful family vacation. Golf was a lot of fun. House was full of anything you needed. Left on Jun 30, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We loved our rental home!

by Angela on 06/25/2017
We loved our rental home! It was very spacious and our favorite was the table on the balcony with an ocean view. We had breakfast outside every morning. What was great about this unit is that there were beach chairs, beach towels and umbrellas provided. Those were much needed. We used them everyday at the beach. There were also spices, ziplock bags and containers provided and that was a big use as well. We loved this home. One thing that was a little inconvenient was the water pressure in the showers. Warm water had barely any water pressure so we ended up taking showers in Cold water where there was a lot of water pressure. But I'm sure that's an easy maintenance fix. Thank you Kona coast vacations! We will be back! Date of Stay: 6/16/17 to 6/26/17

Amazing!

by Morgan on 06/25/2017
This was a wonderful rental. The house was stocked with all needed amenities. Great view and great neighborhood. Date of Stay: 6/15/2017 - 6/23/2017

Absolutely as promised

by Steve on 06/23/2017
To tell you the truth, I was a bit skeptical when I booked thinking the pictures were "doctored" or the description was "enhanced" but it was even better than advertised. First, everything went flawlessly with the rental company, they provided all the information and kept us up to date, second, we arrived to find our condo was everything they had promised - and more! For example, it was well stocked, even had beach chairs, beach bags, beach towels along with plenty of dishes, pots, pans, and kitchenware. Third, the view and the loft were even better than the pictures and there was a pool, plenty of parking, and convenient trash deposit just steps away. The bedrooms and living room had air conditioning which had not been mentioned which was another great surprise and best of all, we were located perfectly within walking distance of a shopping center. Bottom line, the entire experience, start to finish exceeded our expectations from the rental process to the accommodations, to the view. Date of Stay: 6/7/17 to 6/21/17

Ocean, Ocean, Ocean

by Tim on 06/20/2017
We've stayed at this beautiful condo before because you just can't beat the proximity to the ocean. The condo is exactly as pictured.The pool is an added bonus. Two negatives-1. is the amount of time it takes to heat the water in the shower, even with the booster. A lot of water is wasted waiting for the temperature to come to semi-warm (it never got remotely hot)and 2. the vegetation on the wall and around the gate to the beach needs to be cut way back. Part of the view of the beach is hidden because of the overgrown bush and the little path from the gate to the beach is really difficult to walk through. I know some cutting has been done on the bushes but it needs a little more trimming.

Hale Pohaku ! review

by Rob on 06/19/2017
This is a lovely condo in a great location on the Kona coast. There are lots of positive aspects to the condo in the it is roomy, the location is perfect, it's well stocked, and it's well kept. On the negative side however there are some items that we struggled with. We normally rent condos in the Hawaiian Islands that have air conditioning and this one does not. While we knew this going into the rental, we didn't fully comprehend what that would mean. This unit, being right at ocean front, was designed to fully open up to ocean breezes by opening up sliding doors and louvered windows. While this kept the unit reasonably cool, it also meant that it is very noisy, not only from the ocean surf but the neighboring units as well as the very busy street traffic. We all wore earplugs at night to help quiet things down but it still is a very noisy spot.
Another issue with being right on the ocean with no air conditioning, is that the inside of the unit is damp. The tile floor became slick, the carpeting damp, the glass table tops cloudy, the countertops moist, all from the ocean air and high humidity. We were not used to this coming from an area that has relatively low humidity so perhaps this is normal for the area. I just think an air conditioned unit would have been more to our liking but the tradeoff was staying at a beautiful location right on the ocean.

Beautiful condo with a beautiful view

by Marica on 06/17/2017
I recently returned from a 14 night stay in Stephanie and Jerry's condo. The condo is as described and depicted in the listing. I traveled solo so I had an abundance of space in a condo that will easily accommodate 4 to 5 people. I had no issues with this condo and everything I used was in good working order. The unit and grounds were well-maintained. The owners are very responsive, in a timely manner, to any inquiries you may have. I particularly liked the location of the condo within the complex; it's located in Building 3 that is the closest to the ocean and the furthest from the street. The view from the lanai is very expansive and beautiful and you don't see other units; I ate most of my meals there accompanied by the lovely sounds of happily chirping birds. I wanted to spend my time on the island living as much like a local as possible while having easy access to shopping/attractions and this condo was perfect for doing so. The unit is so comfortable and conducive to a very peaceful feeling. I would return here in a heartbeat and would highly recommend others to stay here as well.

A great vacation rental experience

by Ronald on 06/13/2017
Beautiful suite. Lots of openings didn't need air condo. Beautiful view.Quiet location.Suggestion for improvement is replace rusty knives and ensure lights are on upon arrival. Remote fan/light controls are challenging to set.

An Excellent but Too Short Week

by Thomas on 06/13/2017
The condo was everything we expected it to be if not more. Clean, comfortable, and an absolutely fantastic view and lanai almost made us want to just hole up and not go out! The grounds were immaculate. The location was very good and it was quiet and yet full of life with families.

Beautiful home is gateway to a great experience

by Jeffrey on 06/13/2017
Having done no "vrbo" type vacationing in the past I was a little apprehensive signing up for one. My fears were completely unfounded with this property. It was fantastic. The views are gorgeous, the location very convenient for all the big island adventures you will want to be taking. Little extras like scuba equipment, bocce ball set, coffee grinder, nice outdoor grill, really made this a home away from home for our week long stay. The property management company was top notch and the concierge service helpful. My only regret was having to leave this fabulous vacation home.

Very good

Amazing stay at the Casa de Emdeko, loved the location!

by Gary on 06/12/2017
we thoroughly enjoyed out stay at the Casa, unit 310 was beautifully appointed, the kitchen had everything that was needed and more. The stove/oven was a blast from the past(late 60's?) but worked perfectly well. The grounds were lovely and well kept. The bed was very comfortable. The Casa is very quiet facility, so fyi for families with children, there are not many attractions other than the 2 pools. Not an issue for us though. We had booked a manta ray snorkel adventure with Kona Coast Vacations. The catamaran KonaStyle, left Kona heading south towards the Sheraton Resort. It was a nice boat ride, however there were approx 6 other boats at that location at the same time. We noticed that the lights used to attracted the plankton to our boat weren't as bright as the others, hence our manta experience wasn't as exciting as it could have been (no whoops or cheering from our group) although, that being said we did see a few manta's. We also found other tours advertised in Kona that were less expensive. We will return to the Casa again one day! Mahalo and Aloha from BC Canada

Fantastic Unit!!

by Dale on 06/12/2017
We had the best time ever this past week! The place was perfect for us. Loved the view! Enjoyed a potluck dinner with other guests for Thanksgiving! What a great place! Cannot wait to go back!!

Beautiful property and value

by Page on 06/12/2017
First off I would like to express my family's wonderful experience at this property. The pictures really don't do it justice. We ate 5 out of 7 dinners out on the lanai rather than going into town because....well,,,,why wouldn't you?! So peaceful and glorious with the setting sun. That being said we did have a major issue with the A/C which controlled the main part of the house and lower master BR. although the Kona Coast Team returned all of our calls and emails the compressor/parts had a failure which was unresolved by the time we left. We did however have A/C in the other bedrooms which were controlled by separate units. Fortunately the sliding glass doors helped to provide flowing air throughout the main portion of the home which was without A/C. Also, the owner was gracious enough to provide a partial refund for out inconvenience! The jets in the spa did not work but Kona Coast sent a couple of guys out... so for future guests I hope it works. Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our time there even with those couple of glitches and would consider returning to this home on our next visit!! Beautiful property!

Bay Watch Yourself Fall In Love With the Big Island

by Bobbie on 06/12/2017
Very beautiful home set in a perfect location above the bay. We were able to see Honu (Green Sea Turtles) and many types of fish right below us as well as great sunsets and a little wild weather 🙂

Definitely a Five Star Vacation Home!

by Gail on 06/12/2017
We live in Alaska and this was our reward at the end of a long cold, dark winter. The home is tastefully decorated, roomy and comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with everything needed to create delicious meals. The landscaping is beautifully designed to ensure privacy, and listening to the early morning bird song was a lovely way to wake up. Some excursions fell by the way as we relaxed by the pool and soaked in the warm sun and ocean views. The only negative was leaving. Thanks so much for everything!

Beautiful location

by Pam on 06/12/2017
This was our first time at this location. It was perfect for two couples. It was furnish extremely well, very clean and had perfect view of the ocean. Easy access to the beach and shoreline. Turtles basking right in front of our condo was especially enjoyable as well as seeing dolphins jumping. We will definitely come back. The beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, sun umbrella came in very handy.

Terrific Hawaii Vacation Home

by Linda on 06/12/2017
This home was perfect for our family vacation. The 3 bedrooms, opening to lanai and ocean view, gave us all a space of our own. The common areas are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped for just about any cooking you want to do. Entire property is very clean and well maintained. Being up the hill a bit from Kona we had nice ocean breezes. The home is somewhat off by itself, so a real feeling of privacy. A very relaxing place to stay! The pictures on the web site are true to the reality of this beautiful spot. Highly recommend to others. We all decided we'll be back!!

Great Place, has everything you could need

by Heather on 06/12/2017
This condo has been beautifully updated. It is quite spacious, has a great lanai with a partial ocean view. The location is great, near to many restaurants and shops. The communal pool area is great. The condo is stocked with everything you could need from cooking utensils to snorkel gear. Don't rent a van or SUV as the parking stalls are very small.

Mahalo for a great stay!

by Janet on 06/12/2017
We stayed in this property for a week and truly enjoyed the experience. It was spacious, well appointed, modern and comfortable. The location was great, the grounds and pools lovely and the staff very helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

by Theresa on 06/12/2017
This is our second year staying at Maluna Palm. I find the kitchen to be well stocked with everything you need to cook at home. The furnishings throughout the home are very comfortable. It is very close to Kona Town less than 5 minutes so very conveniently located. Right off why 11 that takes you to the Valcano.

Second time's the charm!

by Teri on 06/12/2017
We have stayed here twice now and will likely return! Love the location - being right on Keiki beach cannot be beat. Walking distance to downtown Kona and easy access to the highways for sightseeing. Management and maintenance staff is excellent and easy to contact.

Awesome!!!!!

Vacationer's Paradise

by Nancy on 06/12/2017
My daughter and I have been to the Big Island many times, but always stayed in a resort close by. Since it closed, we decided to try this cottage as we'd driven by it going into town. Are we glad we did! It was everything we hoped for, and more. It was exactly as described, easy to access, booking was easy, information was provided regularly, small but cozy, convenient to everything, immaculate inside and out, appliances all worked, high top table made it easy to see the water over the railing. It was also nice we didn't have to worry about a key as there was a pinpad entrance. Everything that was listed as included, was! It was a perfect spot and size for us, it may be a little small though for 4 adults. We hope to get back next year. I would highly recommend the cottage.

Nice Condo.
Absolutely zero beach equipment. Realize it's not guaranteed, but have always found equipment in other condos

Awesome

by Susan on 06/12/2017
We love the Kona Reef for it's oceanfront location and proximity to Kona town. However, we really loved Kona Reef A27. This place is amazing with it's oceanfront lanai, 2 bedroom and 2 bath. Everything one could possibly want was furnished. And, I have to say, this was by far the cleanest condo we have ever stayed in, so kudos to the housekeeping - I believe her name is Rose! Everything was terrific.

Very special place

by Faye on 06/12/2017
Loved the unit. Very nice and clean. Could not ask for more. The walk along the lava coast was spectacular.

An amazing house in an amazing location.

by Shane on 06/12/2017
My wife and I were celebrating 20 years together and had family with us to help celebrate. This was a great value for such a beautiful house. We were greeted with a small welcome basket and amazing views of the coastline and a gorgeous sunset. We spent the majority of our time on the lanai, enjoying the views and the breeze coming off of the coast. The house was located a mile or two from the beach and downtown Kona, so it was an easy drive. There are multiple farmer's markets to get fresh produce, and the pantry here had some basic spices to save us from buying them at the supermarket. Overall, this was an incredible experience and would highly recommend this house.

Such an awesome view of the beach!!

The house and location was amazing. We had the best time of our lives!!

Kona Reef A37

by Jeff on 06/12/2017
My wife and 2 older kids stayed for 10 days at this amazing ocean front unit. You can not get a better view or be any closer to the ocean. The unit is very nice with a large master bedroom, smaller second bedroom and nice open living area and kitchen. It is less than 1/4 mile from Kona, just a wonderful short walk. The unit has beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach towels and the kitchen is very well equipped. The bathrooms are fine but need updated. We have stayed at the Kona Reef several times and love the small complex with pool and hot tub right on the Ocean. We had a great time in maybe the best unit in the complex.

by Darryl on 06/12/2017
We have been to Hawaii numerous times as well as Maui, Kauai and Oahu. This is our second stay at the shores and our family had an amazing time. The grounds were very well kept although the gardeners started at 7:00 am, didn't bother us as we were up at 6:00 am LOL. Pool was very nice and the room was exactly what we needed. Friends that visited us and stayed at the Hilton were very impressed with the space and the overall quality. Overall the stay was very enjoyable at the price we payed. Normally we like to stay in Maui and know it is more expensive but the value was worth visiting Kona again. Mahalo

Perfect Neighborhood and Home for our Family Trip!!

by Brenda on 06/12/2017
We stayed here for 11 days to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and also invited my in laws and brother & wife. It was perfect.

The property was exactly like the photos. It was very clean and taken care of. We did have super small items we had to call the property manager for: (1) the propane tanks for the grill were empty. They graciously provided new tanks the following morning (2) We thought the keypad lock didn't lock. Maintenance called us immediately and explained how to secure the lock. (3) the Master toilet flush didn't work after awhile and we had to flush by opening the back lid and manually flushing (yuck). It wasn't a deal breaker and we reported it on our final day. They were really great about it.

We would absolutely stay here again. The service. The home and the location was perfect.

I would highly recommend the Haleo Luau at the Sheraton, as well as Hapuna beach and the Four Seasons Resort for dinner. The home was a central location and the driving to sights weren't bad at all.

Wonderful home and stay

by Tom on 06/12/2017

The rooms were lovely & beds so comfortable. The saltwater pool was enjoyed everyday & evening. We loved the location of the house - very peaceful & tranquil. We loved coming back after a day of excursions. The views from top balcony were wonderful! Mahalo Pu'uwai Alii!!

2017 kona vacation

by Sonja on 06/12/2017
We needed assistance from the on-site property manager to enter the room on arrival as the door code didn't work. On-site manager was very helpful. Room was well equipped and pool towels were nice to have. Kitchen cabinet door next to microwave stays open and gets in the way. New shower head needed. Clothes washer faucet leaked at the stem. Bedroom fan is off balance and makes noise. Liked the BBQ area and adjacent seating with lounge chairs. Pool area excellent. Overall a good experience, would recommend this place to
others.

Great vacation

WAY Better Than Photos

by John on 06/12/2017
As stated in the title, photos do not do this place justice. Every little detail was there. The support crew, who were easily reachable at any time, were just fantastic answering our questions. Further, the concierge service provided with the rental (David) was so friendly and helpful it really made the whole trip so perfect. As it turns out, my sweetheart and I chose this place to elope. We have shown some of the photos to family and friends and they think the images were photo shopped. They have said there is no way it is really that nice. But it is. We slept with the doors open and screens pulled and were lulled asleep by frogs and woken in the morning by birds. Such a paradise. We hope to make a tradition of returning to celebrate future anniversaries.
Thank you so much for allowing guests in this lovely home.

Hawaii Vacation

by Kris on 06/12/2017
This was a wonderful vacation. It was my husband and I and my adult son. The beach just across the street was a amazing snorkeling spot. The street was a bit load however that didn't bother us. The only reason I gave 4 stars on the condo, is because it was warm. The air wasn't very cool in the unit. We didn't call about it, we just slept with the windows open. However it was warm in the back of the property. The bedroom my son was in. They were very helpful before arriving with reference to things to do, reservations to make in advance. I loved it. Would stay again.

Property was beautiful,convenient, with great amenities. It was comfortable and extremely well stocked. Probably one of the nicest places we have stayed at. Property management accessible and great to deal with. Dates of Stay: 5/28/2017 - 6/7/2017. Reviewed on 6/9/17.

AirBnb Review

by Shannon on 06/10/2017
Beautiful views, immaculate common areas with pools and gas grills. The apartment itself is as advertised, although the furniture and decor are a bit tired. Reasonably good base for exploring the Big Island, and good value. Date of Stay: 6/7/17 - 6/10/17

Def going back!

by Lorraine on 06/08/2017
We just got back from our delightful stay in Casa de Emdeko , unit 136. The place was immaculate, lower floor which means instant access to both pools, the BBQ', the roaring ocean and its dreamy view: in short, perfect! It was nice and quiet too, well located to the little village of Kailua/kona (short walk to Bongo Bens for breakfast and Huggos for Mai tais!) Actually, there was access to most anything you need for a great vacation. Telling all my family and friends about this reasonably priced gem. Date of Review: Jun 8, 2017. Date of Stay: May 2017

Magical...Just Perfect

by Theresa on 06/07/2017
Our group of 8 rented this property for 5 nights and while we had high expectations, this house far exceeded them. The house is gorgeous, more than well stocked, spacious, clean, beautifully furnished and warm and inviting. Be sure to leave lots of time in your schedule to just sit and gaze upon the mountain view of the coastline and ocean while sitting next to the large pool and hot tub. The two bedrooms in the ohana are very large and nicely done. The location--between the airport and Kailua-Kona--was perfect for all of our exploring. While we were all looking forward to our next stop, Maui, none of us wanted to leave this house. Our group couldn't recommend this house enough. We all hope to return again. Also, David of Kona Vacations was so helpful and responsive re: planning our trip. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us.

Our favorite place to vacation

by Valerie on 06/06/2017
This is our 2nd time in this unit and our 4th time at Sea Village. It is the only place we will stay in Kona. The location is perfect and exactly what you expect a Hawaiian vacation to be. Oceanfront! Waves continuously crashing the surf, unobstructed sunsets and a beautifully manicured property. Situated close to town, you can walk or drive to restaurants, the funnest beaches, shopping etc. We keep our circle tight. Magic Sands is our favorite daily beach. Shopping for condo goods is easy at Walmart and Safeway after getting coffee from Starbuck's. (Seattelites) This condo is next to the pool and the has the side wall of windows for a view and the 2 lanais are the best! We spend days at the beach so the people in the pool are not an issue. We have seen whales and spinner dolphins from this condo. It is by far the best unit on the property with the parking lot close but not too close. The bbq grills are near the front door and eating in is easy. The condo has everything we needed. The beds are comfy and the dining room is recently updated. We lacked for nothing. Having the w/d is helpful for beach towels etc. We are a party of 6 and fit comfortably in this unit. We rented mopeds and drove to the End of the Earth where we jumped off a 30 ft cliff into the ocean. Then lunched at Sam Choy's, a place not to be missed! The moped rental was 24 hrs so we got up in the morning and drove to coffee and more! Happy hour at Huggo's On The Rocks with our feet in the sand, brunch at Fish Hoppers and a stop at Bubba Gump's for the trivia. The bike rentals on Alli'i Drive were cheap but worth it for a morning ride along the seawall. We tried a new beach, just passed the airport, Kua Bay. Good surf, much bigger beach than Magic Sands and there is a food truck! We will be back to this very spot in 2 yrs. It is perfection. My only complaint? I never have enough time there!!!

Holiday Dream

by Keiran on 06/01/2017
The house to commence our Holiday dream. Beautifully presented and offering every conceivable thing required to a point where it was very hard to leave..It was a real pleasure to arrive at the house. Even to find flowers in a vase. I am a florist by trade,so to walk around the garden an see all the wonderful fruit and flowers was a real joy. We even found a Bat flower in bloom, which we picked and had in a vase the whole time we were here. The view from the house is lovely, as we watched watched the cruise boats come in and out.
Thank you for a lovely Holiday

Absolut perfect Condo, best location, best equipment, fair price!

by George on 06/01/2017
Excellent resort, very modern, quiet, friendly. It was a perfect location, full equipped flat, own Parking space, we come back!!!

Great Time!

by Justin on 05/31/2017
We had a great time celebrating our 2nd anniversary with special honeymoon/anniversary champagne glasses provided in this fabulous townhouse. The townhouse was very quiet and well equipped for all of our kitchen, lounging (inside and out) and beach needs. The two pools are beautiful and have plenty of lounge chairs and grills for cooking dinners and making new friends. The downstairs lanai is great for morning coffee and meals and upstairs lanai for relaxing and taking in the views of the mountains, golf course and peek-a-boo view of the ocean. After a day at the beach, we relaxed in the townhouse’s very comfortable living room and watched premium cable TV or owner’s provided DVD movies on a 55’ inch flat screen TV. Definitely check out the swim with dolphin program at the Hilton. The Waikoloa Colony Villas complex is ideally located near fantastic sandy beaches that offer snorkeling, boogie boarding, relaxing and swimming. There are also 2 sets of shops (Kings and Queens) that include stores and restaurants within the Waikoloa Resort area. The property management company made it very easy for us to get into the townhouse by sending us an email with the gate and house codes well in advance of our visit so we didn’t have to waste any time checking in. We can’t wait to come back to this area and this townhouse. Date of Stay: 5/12/17 to 5/20/17

Awesome

AirBnb Review

by Lesley And Bobby on 05/28/2017
Comfortable rooms with a large living space to relax. Environment is very quiet but still comfortable for a family of five to enjoy. Farmers market across the way with town 5 minutes away. Date of Stay: 5/25/17 - 5/28/17

Fantastic View

by Theresa on 05/28/2017
We enjoyed our stay at Bali Kai 213. It was a bit smaller that other condos we have stayed in for the price but it was very clean and I liked that. The ocean area outside the condo was great and one day we saw 10 sea turtles! Kona Coast Vacations requires that you either buy damage insurance or put a $3000 deposit on your credit card. We opted for the deposit on my credit card and as of today, it has not been returned (15 days after departure and I sent an e-mail). Other than that, the condo was nice and I would stay there again. The pool is being remodeled soon so if a pool is important to you, double check that it will be available.  Date of Review: Jan 28, 2017.  Date of Stay: 1/2/17 to 1/18/17.


Management Response:

Aloha! On behalf of the staff and management of Kona Coast Vacations, we very much appreciate you taking your valuable time to provide us with this very important positive feedback.We did check on the status of your refund, and we processed it on our end 5 days after your departure.  We are sorry to learn that it took a little time for the credit to process. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay &  hope that we can welcome you again.

Kona Coast Vacations

Wow!

by Bret on 05/27/2017
This was everything and more of what we expected. This is not a four star resort, it is basically someones rental so know that going in. We were not at all disappointed. The house is large and with our three families we never were on top of each other. We lucked out and had the master room, though we did switch out for a night so others could share the experience. The ocean waves can be so loud that some may choose to close the sliding door (thats how close the water is!) ,we did not! However, keep in mind that by leaving the door open that the A/C will not work which can effect the rest of the rooms. The breeze seemed to work for the others in our case. Some of the areas in the house appeared to have been updated and some were a little dated. EVERYTHING WE SAW WAS CLEAN AND IN GOOD SHAPE. The house has an iron and a full size washer and dryer which is wonderful. The wading and snorkeling beach is very close and parking is ample. Enough for two cars and it is covered. The house well equipped with dishes, pans, utensils etc. We absolutely would stay here again.

Waikoloa A205

by Barbara on 05/26/2017
Wonderful! Everything we needed.

Excellent place to share!

by Sean on 05/24/2017
We were here for business and there were 3 of us. It's a gated location - nice. The house was spacious and clean. They even had visitor parking the additional car. Will definitely be coming back! Left on May 24, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Fantastic house and location!

by Kristian on 05/23/2017
This house and its location just by keiki beach with its calm water pool which is perfect for young kids, was perfect for us. We spent a week there with 7 people, including a 3 year old and a 4 year old.
If we go to the west side of the Big Island again, I'm sure we would book this same place again.

Relaxing days in Kona

by Brigitte on 05/20/2017
Very comfortable house, very clean and very well equipped. We mostly enjoyed sitting on the covered terrace with the perfect sea view!

Perfect House for a Family Vacation

by Jeffrey on 05/18/2017
Kawena 5 was a lovely home in an upscale residential neighborhood a short distance above Kona. The location was convenient to everything in the area, and its position afforded wonderful views of Kona, the ocean, and sunsets. All the bedrooms were exquisite and air conditioned. Note that the lower floor (except for the bedroom there) ha no AC, but with ceiling fans in every room, the house stays comfortable and cool off well at night. The kitchen was very well equipped and there was plenty of indoor space and outdoor space, all with lots of seating. Finally, the pool and hot tub made for an excellent stay. Plus, the concierge service provided by David was so helpful with great recommendations and on target descriptions. This was a perfect house for group of 7 adults and two small children.

Great little Condo

by Emily on 05/13/2017
Excellent Ocean View in a cute and clean condo. This was perfect for my husband and I for a week, it was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend! Kona Concierge was extremely helpful.

Lanai Loungers Loving Mona Coast

by Jayna on 05/12/2017
Had a great experience. Active volcano and 45 minute swim with wild dolphins were highlights. The condo was quite comfortable and convenient. The condo we stayed in was nicely sized for two couples but the kitchen and appliances could use updating, as well as bathrooms. They are a little tired looking. The washer and dryer was nice but the spin cycle was really noisy. Living and dining area lovely. Bedrooms a little close to parking area noise but quieted down fairly early. Would have loved air conditioning in bedrooms at least, but luckily only really hot a couple of days. Overall acceptably comfortable. Pool and Oceanside location awesome, and nice BBQ area.

May Vacation at the Casa

by Tim on 05/10/2017
We've been coming to the Casa for 20 years and still enjoy it. Unit 328 was very nice with pleasing decor and excellent kitchen updates. We'd happily stay there again. My only complaint was the pillows were too thick but we dropped by Walmart and got some thinner ones. Problem solved.

Great vacation

by Philippe on 05/10/2017
A beautiful big place , well decorated, large. Great kitchen
Was awesome will definitely recomand

Absolutely perfect!!

by Shannon on 05/09/2017
I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this condo was. The pictures didn't do it justice. I was absolutely perfect!! The location being able to hear the fountain as well as the ocean was so relaxing. Also having air conditioning along with plenty of fans was kept the temperature perfect. Let's talk about the Master. I have a very bad back and was really nervous about the bed, and no need it was SO comfortable!! With all the extra pillows and he dark shades in the room in was easy to sleep as long as you wanted. Lastly the kitchen. I was so surprised at how well the kitchen was stocked. It had everything! My husband and I will definitely be back. We had an absolute wonderful stay!! Stayed 3/23/2017 - 3/27/2017

Beach Vacation

by Laura on 05/09/2017
great!! stayed 3/1/2017 - 3/6/2017

Great Casa de Emdeko

by Waltraut on 05/09/2017
Property was beautifully landscaped. Location of unit was perfect. The weather was great but the swimming pool would have been a bit more enjoyable if the water would have been a bit warmer. stayed 1/9/2017 - 1/23/2017

Great complex, dated unit

by Mark on 05/09/2017
Stayed in Casa de Emdeko 221 for a week. Loved the complex with its two pools, bbq area, beach area, beautiful grounds & location to Kailua-Kona. Staff at Casa where very helpful & pleasant. The unit itself was very adequate, but dated. Kitchen okay, though toaster needs to be replaced, dishwasher in need of repair & cabinets could be spruced up. Bathroom was good, but toilet slowly drained on its own & would have to refill during the day & night. Also would have been nice to be able to use more than 1 bath towel, face towel & face cloth per person during the whole stay. Overall, I would recommend this property to others & would stay at the complex again. stayed 2/28/2017 - 3/7/2017

Great holiday

by Glen on 05/09/2017
Our vacation rental was nice and clean. The unit could do with an upgrade for sure, I found the kitchen really tight, the dishwasher and oven hit cupboard doors. The complex itself is great loved the pools and BQ area. Would definitely come back, but maybe to a different unit.stayed 1/31/2017 - 2/15/2017

Wonderful appartment for two

by Madeleine on 05/09/2017
The appartment is very clean and comfortable. We found everything as described on the website. It is perfectly situated near Kona city to explore the island. The pools let you have an evening swim after an island trip.We would definetely recommend this appartment for couples.Thank you for having us! Stayed 1/9/2017 - 1/20/2017

Nice option in Kona

by Shourav on 05/09/2017
We were looking for last minute accommodation during the Christmas-New Year period and this was the only option available. We were pleasantly surprised. The apartment is quite spacious, with a lovely balcony. The location is pretty good as well, just outside the main drag of Kailua-Kona.stayed 12/26/2016 - 12/29/2016

Condo 221

by Barbara on 05/09/2017
Unit was clean and quiet. There is no AC included. Weather was moderate so it wasn't a problem. Great for two people, but might be a little crowed for more than two. stayed 12/29/2016 - 1/5/2017

July 19-28, 2016

by Reta on 05/09/2017
The pool were amazing, the general courtyard was jut beautiful and the area for BBQ was nicely equipped. I would recommend this place to anyone!Kitchen was well equipped, and refrigerator large and nice. Beds were comfortable, even the pull out. TV very easy to use and picture clear. We were close to places that we could walk and enjoy a morning coffee, if we chose to do that! Thank you for a nice vacation!!

Home Away from Home

by May on 05/09/2017
We were lucky to find Casa de Emdeko at VRBO last year, and that was the first place we looked at for our visit this year. My son, for whom this was a first visit, exclaimed on seeing the apartment, "I could live here." My thoughts exactly!!! stayed 6/21/2016 - 6/24/2016

Fabulous condo on the ocean

by Geoffrey on 05/09/2017
Lovely location with sea views and conveniently close to town. Well equipped and friendly residents. Felt very much at home. Would gladly return. stayed 4/15/2016 - 4/18/2016

Paradise

by Ana on 05/09/2017
What a perfect getaway! This was our first time staying in Kona, and staying at Casa de Emdeko unit 212 helped to make it a relaxing and magical visit. We woke early each morning to greet the day, spending one morning out by the saltwater pool to meet the sunrise. We were a few miles from town, but only went into town a couple of times, spending most of our time on the beaches of Waimea. We didn't mind the drive at all, knowing we were returning to our peaceful unit. It was wonderfully air conditioned so we were comfortable during our entire stay and the unit was equipped with everything we could have needed. We cooked at least 1 of our meals in the home daily. We have been spending each year in Hawaii for our anniversary and we will never forget this year's stay at Casa de Emdeko.stayed 3/17/2016 - 3/25/2016

Fabulous Condo and Location

by Reynold on 05/09/2017
We loved staying in this beautiful one bedroom condo, March 1st to 14th, 2016. It was so well equipped and the oceanside setting and parklike grounds were spectacular. We loved it and would recommend it to others

Nice, quiet place to stay

by Kathy on 05/09/2017
We had a wonderful time; could have stayed longer. The condo was a tiny bit small but certainly well appointed. We purchased food and ate in most of the time. They had a fully stocked kitchen to cook in. We were very pleased with our choice. There were only 2 small things I would like to pass along: keep your counters cleaned off-- the tiniest ants invade-lots and lots of ants! The other thing was the stairs. When called I specifically asked for a room near the elevator due to medical issues. I was told that we were close to the elevator with 1-2 steps. That was very difficult to deal with. This condo I would definitely recommend. The seawater and chlorine pools were great. We sat on the lanai and watched the sun go down--don't miss this! stayed1/29/2016 - 2/13/2016

Had It All

by April on 05/09/2017
This was the perfect place for us to relax after exploring kona and the big island. Perfect location with all the amenities we needed. Great value, and we would gladly stay again. stayed 1/20/2016 - 1/27/2016

A little piece of paradise.

by Melanie on 05/09/2017
It was a great rental unit, with all the nice to haves. Tastefully furnished, and comfortable except for the bed...very hard mattress if you are not used to it rock hard don't stay..we dreaded going to bed. Sorry but really it was meant for a guest room where you are hoping the guests will leave after a couple days. The mattress also had a plastic mattress cover on it which added to the misery. OK enough about the bed we survived it.The kitchen had everything ...blender, rice maker, coffee bean grinder, even a few spices. In the cupboard there was laundry soap, beach chairs, umbrellas, a cooler, snorkel gear, 4 beach towels and more. Another great feature was the screen door locked so you can have the balcony door open and the entrance screen providing that great sea breeze through the unit rather than the air conditioning.The large screen TV was great for the playoffs and I did see a sound system but we didn't use it. The grounds are well manicured and there is two pools salt or fresh water with a small beach and lounges scattered under palm trees, a BBQ common area if you feel like socializing, everyone seemed friendly. Andrew the manager lent us a great book on the island and helped with directions to local hot spots....a super nice person. stayed 1/3/2016 - 1/19/2016

Christmas 2015

by Lisa on 05/09/2017
A lovely first vacation rental experience. Great first impression of Hawaii. The place was well equipped for stay and daily travels. Loved that we could hear the ocean from the unit and watch the sunset on he ocean from the Lanai. stayed 12/11/2015 - 12/19/2015

AWESOME!

by James on 05/09/2017
One of the most relaxing, quiet and best-equipped places we've ever stayed in. No traffic noise. Good location. Comfortable and quiet a/c. and ceiling fans too! Tremendous value. A bit dated but the only thing missing was a walk-out sandy swimming beach, but close enough to that and good snorkeling. Exceptionally clean, peaceful, friendly, casual, zen-like courtyard, awesome salt-water pool (regular one great too but a bit too cool for us) and very pleasant shaded cabanna with attached outdoor patio. Wonderful man-made beach strip. A place for everyone: sun, shade, at a table, on a lounger, in or out of the water, with others or alone, in the wind or sheltered. Exceptionally quiet accoustics; LOVED our lanai! Tranquility at its best. Good privacy too if that's important to you. The quiet we crave and enjoy! Can't wait to return!! stayed 2/20/2017 - 3/16/2017

Seven days in Kona

by Mike on 05/09/2017
Location was walking distance from the attractions on Alii drive. Easy access to main roads. Casa De Emdeko was clean and well furnished. stayed 12/24/2016 - 12/31/2016

Emdeko vacation

by Simon on 05/09/2017
This was our first Kona vacation but second visit to the Big Island. We selected our vacation accommodation based on review of the available vacation properties offered through the Kona Coast Vacation web site and Trip Advisor reviews of both the complex and our particular unit. All the reviews were very positive. Kona Coast made the booking process easy and check in process was flawless. Both our unit and the complex in which we stayed met our expectations and provided excellent value for the money. The unit and complex while older was well maintained and Kona Coast Vacations provided all information that we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We would have no hesitation about booking a future vacation using Kona Coast Vacations. Mahalo stayed 12/1/2016 - 12/12/2016

Lovely Kona Condo!

by Anna on 05/09/2017
Pictures don't do this condo justice. It on the first floor with a spacious patio looking out to the water and adjacent to a patio area with tables, chairs, umbrellas, BBQs for easy dining outside with a gorgeous viewl The ocean water pool was a treat. The condo is situated on Alii Drive close to shops and restaurants!I rated a 4 only because the mattress was too soft for me. stayed 1/10/2017 - 1/13/2017

Good place

by Jeanne on 05/09/2017
Very convenient, close to town and to the beach. We especially appreciated the washer/dryer in the unit.stayed 1/2/2016 - 1/9/2016

review of Casa de Emdeko 327

by Donna on 05/09/2017
The only issue I had was with the towels. It was stressful thinking we could only use one of each size and I was not into doing laundry. I think its reasonable to leave behind the towels we used for the week to be laundered because I would want to make sure they were sanitized properly before someone else came into the rental.stayed 11/17/2016 - 11/24/2016

Rollason Vacation 2016

by Peter on 05/09/2017
Very good

Great Unit

by Frank on 05/09/2017
This unit is near elevator but not too near. Just a few steps down to negotiate. Place was great for wife and I for a seven night stay. The two pools were fun and clean. The landscaping is beautiful and well maintained. Bed and fold out were problems at all and company managing the place (Kona Coast Vacations) kept in touch to make sure everything was going well. Property description was accurate as well as the photos. We would recommend. stayed 2/7/2016 - 2/14/2016

Amazing Stay

by Erin on 05/09/2017
The condo association here is amazing. Our room was very clean and nicely accommodated. Landscaping is beautiful and the little beach and pool areas are clean. We were very please with our stay here and likely to return. We were unaware that many of the folks that stay here either own their condo or rent for months at a time. Most of our neighbors/guests were older which made for a lot of peace and quiet. Location was perfect, not far from grocery shopping and the city strip. Enjoyed our stay here very much, would highly recommend to friends and family. Stayed 1/29/2016 - 2/6/2016

Casa de Emdeko 307

by Sylvia on 05/09/2017
We really liked the condo, the grounds and surrounding area. Everything was well kept and clean. The unit was extremely well equipped with everything one could need for daily living. stayed2/25/2017 - 3/8/2017

Super Cute, Convenient, and Clean Condo

by Brianna on 05/09/2017
Everything was great at the Casa De Emdeko 307! They provided everything that we could possibly need for our stay in Hawaii (coolers, beach towels, beach umbrella) and things that we didn't even realize we would need (bottle opener and scissors and everyday items)! Great place and would recommend to a friend and go again!stayed 3/9/2017 - 3/15/2017

Casa De Emdeko 307

Casa De Emdeko #307

by Heather /Rob on 05/09/2017
We have stayed in the complex many times, but this is the first time in #307. Unit was nice, not as nice or as updated as others we have stayed in, but comfortable. Kitchen had no dishcloths, only a sponge and the flatware needs to be replaced, but otherwise well equiped. stayed 12/31/2016 - 1/21/2017

Great Kona condo

by Beth on 05/09/2017
This was a great condo for our family of four. The kitchen was well-equipped, we used the cooler daily, and appreciated having a boogie board, 2 beach chairs, beach towels, and an in-unit washer and dryer. The place as clean, with a nice view of the ocean. We chose not to use the A/C, but it's there if you want it. It's a great location, and the grounds of the complex are very clean and tidy. stayed 12/20/2015 - 12/31/2015

Purdy's stay Casa 210

by Bill on 05/09/2017
Same as usual, great accommodations. Mackenzie in maintenance very helpful, needs we very few, she looked after them. stayed 1/7/2017 - 3/26/2017

Amazing place with an option to sleep outside

by Hanna on 05/09/2017
The apartment was amazing. The best part was the kitchen that was fully equipped, which for people who love to cook, this is important. I also loved the large shower. The second best part was the bed outside. I am not sure if that was meant to me a bed, but we ended up sleeping on the balcony and it was amazing. The complex was nice and casual with many friendly people. There is a nice sandy area where you can have a nice view on the ocean. The only problematic (only until we switched to sleeping outside) for me was the bed in the bedroom. It was VERY soft, and since we prefer harder type of beds, this completely didn't work out for us. I can't even imagine what we would do if there was no bed on the balcony...stayed 12/22/2016 - 1/1/2017

The perfect place to stay

by Dane on 05/09/2017
I dont know what to say the property was perfect.everything was great, and went smooth. We will do this again. stayed 12/8/2016 - 12/12/2016

Beautiful Condo

by Jenny on 05/09/2017
We loved the condo!! Kitchen was amazing! Loved sitting out on the lanai for breakfast and in the evening! The shower was awesome! The only thing I would change are the sinks in the bathroom. They are awful. They don't drain. stayed 12/13/2016 - 12/20/2016

Perfect place to stay

by Kim on 05/09/2017
The property was very clean when we arrived. There were basic supplies to get us started (toilet paper, etc.) which was particularly helpful since we arrived very late. It was well maintained. The unit had a washer and dryer which was very helpful and convenient. The management company was easy to work with. The description of the unit was very accurate. At the time that we stayed (April 2016) the unit had beach chairs and a beach umbrella available for use which was a nice surprise as that was not included in the description. The location is farther from town than some might like but my husband and I found the location perfect. Overall, the environment of the location was great. The amenities such as the beach, the bbq area, and the pools were great to have and added to a great vacation. I would no doubt recommend this unit and hope to stay here again myself in the future.While in Kona, we did a manta ray swim with Neptune Charlie's/Manta Ray Swims which I would highly suggest. The crew was great and engaging and the experience itself was wonderful. We also did a dolphin swim with Ali'i Ocean Tours and had a great time. Again, the crew was great and it was a laid back, relaxing time. We consider this one of the top vacations we have taken and the condo certainly contributed to that. stayed 4/19/2016 - 4/29/2016

Lovely Condo

by Patricia on 05/09/2017
We stayed in Casa de Emdeko Unit 210 for 10 days in April 2016. The condo was immaculate and very nicely decorated. Bed was very comfortable and we really appreciated the central air at night. We never used the dining furniture as we would eat all our meals on the lani. Kitchen was well stocked and we really enjoyed the beach chairs. Umbrella was a slightly broken but still worked. The grounds were well kept up and enjoyed both the pools and the "beach". They have a nice area to grill food with tables surrounded by tiki torches. Watching sunsets in the evening was superb. We highly recommend this condo and would rent it again if visiting the Big Island in the future. stayed 4/6/2016 - 4/16/2016

Very Pleasant Facility

by Michel on 05/09/2017
We enjoyed our stay at Casa De Emdeko. There were a couple of minor problems when we arrived, but they were dealt with very promptly, kudos to the Kona Coast people. 202 is a little dated, but I think that was reflected in the price. The only drawback was the lanai only had a table for two, so we couldn't invite another couple for dinner; something you like to do over a long stay. A real plus is the telephone for local calls.stayed 2/19/2017 - 2/20/2017

Paradise

by Terry And Jeanette on 05/09/2017
We had a wonderful stay in Our condo. It was clean and comfortable. Our first time was a great experience. Only one thing was somewhat bothersome: the rug. It seemed musty smelling when all windows and doors were closed and we returned to it. Perhaps new no rug flooring could be a solution. Thank you so much. We also loved being near the ocean and sitting on the beach watching the whales and water. stayed 2/21/2017 - 3/7/2017

Mmmm, that sound of the ocean!

by Ruby on 05/08/2017
We visited this place for a couple of days as we got our bearings on the Big Island. It was just right, clean and super location. First and foremost to be right on the ocean with turtles swimming 10 yards away was amazing. Then we had the convenience of beings able to to walk to dozens of restaurants and shops along Alii Drive was a big plus. Date of Review: May 8, 2017. Date of Stay: May 4, 2017.

by Glenda on 05/07/2017
The property was well maintained. I would suggest that the interior bedroom and bathromm doors be replaced. They are in disrepair and detract from the overall good condition of the property. During the first week of our stay the refrigerator had a problem and I contacted the management company. They did a good job correcting the problem and came out the same day I called "good job". stayed 1/15/2017 - 1/28/2017

Great place over all

by Taras on 05/07/2017
Cool condo complex. Great location. Condo itself in decent shape but little renovation would make it exceptional. Despite the request to take of shoes when inside, the floor was not so clean to do that. stayed 12/13/2016 - 12/23/2016

Great spot near Kona's tourist center.

by Monica on 05/07/2017
Casa de emdeko is just as described--well equipped, comfortable, accessable to town (but you do need a car). The grounds are well kept and there was always parking pretty close to the door. stayed 4/16/2016 - 4/22/2016

A Great Stay...Wish It Could Have Been Longer!

by Laurence on 05/07/2017
This was a great place for us to stay during our all-too-brief first visit to the Big island. The location is close to downtown Kailua, but not too close. There is a grocery/deli across the parking lot that is very convenient and had almost everything we needed. The condo was clean, well-equipped, and certainly roomy enough for two people. We spent a lot of time at the oceanfront and would certainly consider staying here again on a return trip. Overall, we were quite satisfied with the experience. stayed  2/4/2016 - 2/9/2016

Had a blast!

by Mark on 05/07/2017
The elevation was perfect. Some thunder showers early afternoon to cool off the day and breezes at night. The unique lay out of the home around the pool worked really well for us.
Thank you.

2 Weeks In Paradise

by Michael on 05/03/2017
We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. The views are amazing. The location is close to everything with a local trolley to get around if you want. The condo is well stocked with pretty much everything you need. The breeze is great through the unit as we didn't require a/c even though it was very hot outside. The only downside is not the fault of the unit. Being on a golf course you get ground maintenance starting before dawn so having your peaceful mornings doesn't happen. It's hard to ignore. Once in a while a stray golf ball also gets your attention banging off the lanai. Again not the condos fault. Concierge service was available to help with any excursion needs as well. Overall we were very happy with this property.stayed 2/10/2016 - 2/24/2016

AirBnb Review

by Sheridan on 05/03/2017
Incredible experience. Wonderful location: right on the water, walking distance to restaurants and shops in Kona, 15 minutes from the airport, small beach right next door, great snorkling and surfing right outside (if you are a strong swimmer), can watch plenty of dolphins and local surfers play in the water from your deck. It was baby friendly and adult friendly (although the elevator did not reach this floor - we had to walk one flight of stairs - which made taking our daughter out in her stroller a two person job). Pictures of condo were accurate. It was very clean and had lots of great tools to use like containers to pack food for picnics, snorkel gear and flippers, body boards, blender, etc. Hoping to come back one day!

We would definitely stay again. The location is excellent - close to shopping and activities in the heart of Kona. Beautiful true view of ocean, flowers and grill area which we used almost every day. The complex is older but is well maintained and very comfortable and quiet. We often felt we had it to ourselves but enjoyed meeting the friendly residents. The condo was extremely well stocked and clean. The bed was comfortable and the in unit washer/dryer was ideal for traveling with an infant. There was also plenty of free of parking.

Our condo was nicely decorated and the kitchen supplies such as dishes, utensils , appliances etc were superb. In our past rentals we have had access to the garage, which was very convenient for drying beach attire etc. We also had to purchase boogie boards, snorkelling gear etc. Otherwise enjoyed our stay immensely. Proximity to pool was awesome! Date of Stay: 4/22/17 to 4/30/17

The most beautiful home that truly feels like a tropical vacation in itself. Decorated and landscaped perfectly! The pool was amazing and the home made our trip to Hawaii even more amazing!

Perfect Family Vacation Home

by Jeff on 04/23/2017
This property has everything we were looking for in a vacation home. It comfortably slept all of us, it was in a convenient location, the views were fabulous, and it has a pool and hot tub. Everything was in pristine condition and offered an inviting, relaxing environment for everyone after many long days at the beach and other activities. The Master Bedroom mattress was heavenly. There is a separate 1 bedroom apartment off of the garage complete with kitchen and bath. Our two teens loved this situation! All in all it was a fabulous place to stay and I would not hesitate to choose this home again on my travels to Hawaii!!

Great condo, great trip

by Carla on 04/20/2017
My husband and I stayed at Bali Kai 201 with my sister, husband and her family (2 teens) and the condo was a great size for the 6 of us. It was well equiped with all the items we needed for our stay. Only item that we didn't notice when booking and turned out to not be a big issue is there is no air conditioning in the unit. We used the fans provided and didn't find that it was a huge issue but could be for others. The absolute highlight was sitting on the deck watching the waves and surfers. Having said that, due to the surfers and the public area, there were a few nights that people would be chatting/congregating into the evening which could be heard. The condo does need a few updates but for the most part, was clean on check in. The one bedroom had a lot of spare items in the closet (extra bedding, new ceiling fan in the box, etc) which took away from our use, but otherwise was fairly minor. Lots of towels for our use and was nice to have the washer and dryer in suite.

Great Kona Getaway

by Sam on 04/19/2017
It happened, we struck the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation. This loft unit is the perfect launching spot for a Big Island escape. Seriously, it was perfect. An instant tradition in our family (I hope!) This rental is a tremendous deal. It met all our requirements and then exceeded our expectations. The high ceilings and spacious layout were perfect for our romantic evenings watching the glowing sunsets as well as for the times the extended family converged at our spot for an afternoon of tennis, swimming and sunset barbeque on the huge balcony. We could have lounged entire days on the lanai alone, soaking up the serene landscape - truly an idyllic setting. The second story mezzanine was perfect for the kids and their family sleepovers. The condo was clean, well maintained, comfortable from the second we walked in. The fully stocked kitchen made it simple to prepare our meals or host family gatherings. At night, a cool breeze comes rolling down the mountain, through the apartment and toward the coast making AC unnecessary and keeping the temperature ideal for sleeping with open windows and the sounds of nature. The pool, hot tub, and tennis courts were well maintained and made for a great, easy hang out spots for grown ups and kids alike. We have travelled a lot, mostly using AirBnb, and were thrilled to find a place this nice for such a great price! We rented a car for full exploration of the island, yet we found most of the things we wanted to do within a coupe of miles! The short walk down to the ---- bay was our go-to spot for a quick dip or for Sheratons happy hour. This area is also where the manta ray night swims happen which was definitely a highlight of our trip! (If this sounds like something you are interested in, the folks at Anelakai Adventures took us on an awesome night snorkel in their traditional paddle boats.) There are also really good snorkeling and surf spots right down the road from the loft. Kahaluu Park, the nearest break is the primary beach in Kona for surf lessons and on the beach board rentals. Apparently there is always a steady beginner break. A bit farther out is a great left frequented by intermediate and advanced surfers. (The outside waves are way bigger than they look from shore!) The south end of this beach is a semi-protected lagoon, so it is also one of the more popular destinations for beginner snorkeling adventures. Within five minutes we had a sea turtle swimming along side. : Date of Stay: March 2017. Review of Review: April 2017

The perfect getaway

by Lindsay on 04/19/2017
This property was absolutely perfect. We had lots of space, a great kitchen, and a beautiful view. Although there were just two of us, we easily could have fit our family of four and then some. The patio was very peaceful, we enjoyed coffee and breakfast on it each morning looking at the ocean. The management company was easy to work with and very attentive during our stay. There were many recommendations and anything we could want to know in the binder they left. It was located in a great area near restaurants and easily could get to snorkeling but at the same time very quiet. We will absolutely stay at this location again. : Date of Stay: June 2016.

Best Stay

by Lou on 04/19/2017
I have stayed at many places on different islands, but this place is fantastic. This is a very comfortable and well kept place with great views of the ocean and golf course. The sunsets from here were amazing. I was able to get to so many places in just a very short walk and I rode my bike along the ocean many of the days. The people I met while staying at this rental were very friendly and the tennis courts and pool were in great condition. I am definitely coming back! : Date of Stay: April 2016.

by Crinnie on 04/19/2017
I loved this condo! Very clean, newly updated and well maintained stocked with everything we needed for a perfect week on the big island. Very spacious with high ceilings and gentle cool morning and afternoon breezes. The ocean views and sunsets from the lanai are amazing. The pools, recently resurfaced tennis courts and grounds were very well maintained and the property is close to shopping center and easy walk to Keahou bay. The manta night dive was incredible. I will definitely come back. : Date of Stay: March 2016. Date of Review: May 2016

Fabulous Condo on the big Island!

by K & Chris on 04/19/2017
We stayed at this condo in February of 2016 for about a week. There were just the two of us, but plenty of room for more with the loft upstairs with 2 single beds and a second bedroom (2 full bathrooms). The bed was really comfortable! The condo is very well equipped with everything you need with high quality dishes, towels etc. and all the basics for cooking and in perfect condition. Its very well laid out and feels very roomy - you do not feel like you are staying in a condo. The lanai is a wonderful place to eat your breakfast and dinner when you want to eat in (and private), with an easy to use BBQ. If you are lucky you will get to see the green flash at sunset! WiFi works great - unfortunately we had to work while there, so had to stay connected. The location is perfect - with walk-able access to Keauhou Bay where we were able to go outrigger canoeing with a local club that invites qualified guests to join them for early morning paddles with experienced club members. Great restaurants and a store nearby for groceries and within walking distance to good (all-be-it crowded) snorkeling and surfing lessons - Go early to avoid the crowds! : ). Rent a car if you want to explore the island beyond the area. Parking was available in the visitor spots, which we always found available. The pools are nice too if you want to go for a quick swim, a really nice feature as well for people with kids. We definitely would use this place again! Thanks! : Date of Stay: Feb 2016.

5.0/5.0 Sooo serene and relaxing

by Anonymous on 04/17/2017
We loved our five day stay at this unit---great location, well equipped, comfy, and beautiful sunset views. We ate breakfast every morning on the quiet, serene lanai facing the golf course and ocean. The kitchen is well stocked for making meals; Foodland nearby at the Shops. Lots of beach towels in the unit to use at the private beach club nearby; washer and dryer work great too. The unit is very comfortable...we lounged on the comfy couch at night as we planned the next activities for the next day---so much to see on the Big Island! We used the TV and DVD player one night and they both worked great. Guide books in the unit to help you plan day trips. At night I fell asleep with the soft breezes and slept well; in the morning the birds were singing as we ate breakfast. Even on the first day you can feel the city stress leaving your body. Ha. I did not want to leave. So glad we got away to this amazing place and I look forward to the next time I can go.

5.0/5.0 I am in love with this property...

by Kim on 04/15/2017
I am in love with this property. We couldn't have stayed any closer to the ocean! Every day we were out on the lanai watching for whales, dolphins and turtles. Fun to watch the outriggers paddle by. Every night we were lulled to sleep with the sound of the ocean's waves. There's no a/c, but the fans and the ocean breezes make up for it. Everything is provided for you...there's even a cooler and some snorkel equipment. It's close to everything, and there are great places to eat nearby. Got to try Da Poke Shack. The property is well represented by the online photos and was very clean. We had to call maintenance for some issues, and they were promptly there taking care of them. A couple of cons - the pool and hot tub close way too early (7pm - and it's enforced by a resident), and parking is very far from the unit (carts are provided for groceries, etc). Overall, this property is too fantastic to pass up!

Perfect property for relaxation and turtles!

by Fraste on 04/14/2017
This top floor condo overlooked the crashing waves and three turtles that called the place home. The view was amazing, the water was so clear you could see the schools of yellow tangs moving in the water. Close enough to walk to town but on a side street so no traffic noise or people filing past. A perfect mix of being close to the action without having to see or hear it. The owners were wonderful to work with. After already staying in two other locations in the Big Island this was a perfect ending to our two week stay. Date of Review: Apr 14, 2017. Date of Stay: Apr 7, 2017.

Island Living

by Jeff on 04/13/2017
To describe the home and the experience in under 2000 characters would probably do it an injustice and could not even come close to the total experience. The home was well equipped, clean and centrally located to just about everything. I really do not think that you could fine fault with anything and just writing this review makes me want to return. Upon arrival we were somewhat concerned that the main part of the home and master bedroom was not air conditioned, but after the first night those concerns were easily overcome, simply by the ocean breezes and soothing sounds that they created. We would return to Villa kai without hesitation and would highly recommend it and Kona Coast Vacations. The only small negative would be that some of the furnishings are looking tired and that the pool loungers had no padding but again this is being extremely picky.

Management Response, AC has been installed in the Master Bedroom, so now all the bedrooms have AC for maintaining guest comfort. The Owner of this property is very dedicated to maintaining the home and guest comfort. Thanks for the kind words about the home and Kona Coast Vacations. We hope you return soon to take advantage of the new AC.

Great time on the Big Island

by Rene on 04/11/2017
We had a great time staying in unit 306. It is not a huge condo but was big enough for my wife and our 12 and 3 year old and a great value. The pull out bed in the living room is actually comfortable. We had all of the pots, pans, and plates we needed. We loved using both of the pools and watching the waves crash at the seaside pool. The patio area near the ocean was great and we cooked out every night on the gas grills while watching the sunset over the ocean. The complex was very clean and the people were friendly.

Big Island Vacation

by Paula on 04/10/2017
We loved the condo. It was right across the street from a fabulous snorkel spot. We enjoyed having our meals outside, unfortunately they were remodeling the condo beneath us & the noise was a bit overwhelming. Hammers, drill & saws at 7:00 am is a bit early but we made the best of it. The condo was comfortable for the six of us, 2 couples & the kids shared the room with the twin beds.

Aloha and Mahalo for the great comments.  We understand, the neighbors construction has been completed as of June 2017.  Unfortunately, private owners of neighbor units do not have to inform us of their plans.  We hope to see you back again soon.  Mahalo Kona Coast Vacations  

Heaven on Earth

by Peter on 04/10/2017
A modern, clean, spacious, totally relaxing and beautiful home. The luxurious accommodations and attention to the smallest detail in every room made this an exquisitely comfortable place to stay. A walk out to the deck with its swimming pool and colorful, well maintained garden — with a full view of the Pacific Ocean behind it — made this vacation superb. As a native NYC resident, reclining on a cushioned beach chair, watching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean, with a private swimming pool right in front of me, all the comforts of home right behind me, and NO BUGS to annoy me qualifies this home as the best vacation residence I have ever stayed in.

Spring Break Trip to Hawaii

by Laurel on 04/09/2017
We had an awesome time. Hale Kai O Kona #7 was a beautiful place to wake up in the morning. Sitting with a cup of coffee on the lanai to plan your day and finishing there to rest after a beautiful day in the sun!!

The rental was spacious and very clean. The location was perfect. It was just a few miles from the bustling city of Kona but close enough that you could easily get to some terrific restaurants.

I can't even begin to describe the views from the condo. They were different everyday!!

We all agreed we would definitely return again.

Killer Kona View

by Gail on 04/07/2017
Definitely better than the photo's this authentic Hawaiian home was beautiful and comfortable. The weather on the hillside was a little disappointing while we were there. Morning sun until noon then cloud cover and slight rain, but it was a welcome relief from the heat of the lower lands. The neighboring resident rooster crowed like clock work from 4:30 unit 8:30 and felt like he was just outside the window which didn't bother my husband much but was a noise nuisance to me. We loved the home, location and outdoor space with pool and hot tub. We will definitely go back and would recommend it to a friend. Date of Stay: 3/14/17 to 3/22/17

Lovely condo, great location

by Terri on 04/06/2017
Loved this condo. Initially disappointed because the description said there was a sofa bed, but then was informed there was not one right before our arrival. However, they rectified this by providing a blow up bed. The condo had everything we needed. A bit dated, but this did not bother us. A thorough spring clean would be beneficial. Surface clean, but utensil drawers and cupboards need a good cleaning.
Cannot beat the view and location. We absolutely loved sitting on the lanai for every meal, even when the turkeys were calling. Pool and BBQ facilities were fantastic. Overall loved it and would stay again.

We absolutely loved our stay at this condo and booked for next year even before we left! The condo is completely stocked with everything you need, is located in a great location, just a few blocks from a grocery store and a little ways from downtown Kona. The view is amazing, we slept with the doors open and enjoyed the fresh ocean breeze every night.

Great Condo

by Susan on 04/05/2017
Our family of 5 stayed in this condo over the new year and part of January 2017. It was perfect - beautifully decorated, clean, lots of room, and the kitchen was big and well equipped. The view was fantastic - golf course greens and ocean. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset every evening! Our family has visited the Big Island many times and we all agree this condo is our new favorite. My compliments to the cleaning crew as this is the cleanest rental we've stayed in.

Great place to stay in Keahou. The unit has a great ocean/golf view. A great layout to accommodate six guests. Well decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed for the home cooked meals on the lanai. The property is well maintained and we would highly recommend this to friends and family.

My wife and I celebrated our 10yr anniversary in Kona. We couldnt of asked for a better accommodation. Everything was provided!! The location is perfected situated in the middle of the west coast making trips north to Hapuna beach and Mauna Kea or South to Captain Cook and volcanoes perfect. Again couldnt say enough about the accomodations, very clean very modern yet comfy and close to restaurants and bars. I could go on and on but I'll end of by saying that we will 100% be coming back to Kona and will 100% look to book this unit again!!

Hard to beat! If we plan a trip back to Kona in future, we will certainly enquire about a return visit to Bali Kai.

Be careful about reservations and confirm with Kona coast immediately. The condo is comfortable and has a very good location on the water but doesn't afford alot of security.

Very clean place with lots of amenities. Great location right across to one of the best snorkel places on the island. The place is kept very updated. It has all what you need and more.

Nice location close to town. Pool and pool area and water front views were really nice. For the most part is all that you need for a home away from home. Convenient and the grounds were beautifully landscaped.

great place to stay. I was happy to find they provided two coolers with different sizes for us to use. they provided cooking and dinning utensils so we can purchase some local fish and cook our own meals instead of dinning out every day. washing machine and dryer are also included.

KCV was very accommodating to our needs. They provided all the amenities that we could have asked for. The location of our home is central on the Kona side and was a warm relaxing retreat for me and my family after a long day of site seeing.

This condo and this location were a perfect combo for a great getaway. Ocean front with view, beautiful grass out front and proximity to the pool was awesome. The suite it self was pretty well stocked, the décor good for that Hawaiian feel. Pot light with dimmers throughout the home added a nice ambiance for relaxing. Surprisingly quiet for condo complex. Walkable to 'downtown' Kailua which was great. Parking always available (find where you condo is and usually easy to park close). We loved staying here. Would go back again.

The complex is very well kept and nice and quiet. Our condo was clean for the most part. It's a bit far from anything so definitely rent a car if you want to travel outside the complex. The pool was great, but watch out for some of the very unfriendly regular residents. The host was great and communication was easy.

by Diana on 04/02/2017
The condo is a great location about a mile from town and right on the water. You can hear the waves crashing all night - so lovely. The pool is nice also. The staff were absolutely fantastic and very accommodating - wonderful to work with and always available to help out or answer questions. The unit itself could have been cleaner in the kitchen and living room and beach towels were not provided. Maybe you have to expect some dirt being so close to the ocean spray. Overall a nice stay.

We had a great time at the Ailina house - it was perfect for us with two kids and my mother along. There was plenty of space for us all to spread out and enjoy whatever spaces we wanted to be in. It's located about a 10-12 minute drive from Kailua Pier (the center of all the action in town), so it's easy to get everywhere, but also very quiet. The property management company is incredibly attentive, and the private concierge was so helpful with booking activities for us in advance of our trip - definitely take advantage of this service! The pool and lanai were FABULOUS, and the big gas grill worked great. Indoor/outdoor living at its finest! The TVs were completely unnecessary. The beds were very comfortable, and it was awesome to sleep with all the windows open and wake up to birdsong every morning. The two smaller bedrooms were always a bit warm during the day, even with fans going and windows open, but got very comfortable overnight. If you're into making exotic cocktails, I suggest you bring your own jiggers and/or liquid measuring cups. Also, the stereo equipment doesn't include bluetooth or a mini plug, which is a bummer, because the lanai is wired with speakers all around. You can plug into the TV's sound bar, or bring your own bluetooth speaker like we did. We couldn't stop raving about how awesome it was staying at this house. I want to try staying in Hilo next time we come to the Big Island, but it will be hard to not just want to go back to Ailina House!

Best family vacation we could have ever taken

by Amanda on 04/02/2017
Mom, Dad, 7-year old boy and 2 year old girl. Plenty of room for everyone and then some! The pools are spectacular and the house itself is what dreams are made of. We were trying to think of one thing that could make it better and we couldn't think of a single thing. Hard to find reasons to leave but when we did, we loved Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill and Mahai'ula beach (be sure to have a 4WD to access it). The concierge was wonderful, and our entire experience from beginning to end was smooth. We ended up renting a crib and some indoor/outdoor toys from and it was perfect.

A whale of a good time!

by Mike on 04/01/2017
Impression: Beautiful property, amazing views, and you might even have some quality whale watching! Review: This place was fantastic. The house itself is large, well cared for, and a great space for a large group in a quiet neighborhood. I stayed there for a week, and it was great to have a beautiful view of the sunset every night by the lighted pool. A huge kitchen and large rooms with private bathrooms and balconies made this an awesome place to stay with multiple couples. Tons of restaurants and the main drag by the beach are within a 5 minute drive. We took surfing lessons in town, had tons of great poke bowls, and on our last day could see whales splashing around while sitting by the pool. Highly recommended, great property in a great location. Dates of Stay: 3/1/17 to 3/7/17

GREAT STAY - WOULD DO IT AGAIN

by Carm on 04/01/2017

Great ocean view rental

Great rental with everything you need. It was clean and well maintained, cooking facilities were good and the access to the communal grill was good to meet people and also to eat watching the sunset which was amazing.

A Brief Escape to Paradise

by Robin on 03/30/2017
Two couples from Montana enjoyed 9 days of sun and laughter away from the harsh winter in Montana. We really enjoyed the condo. Perfect size. Plenty of seating. Great beds. Well appointed kitchen. Very clean. Plenty of linens. Good location but in need of better directions, i.e. Hard to find.

Gorgeous Rental

by Laura on 03/29/2017
Our family vacation to the Big Island was incredible. Our 3 bedroom Kahalu’u Beach Villa home was a perfect fit for our group of six (2 kids, mom and dad, and grandparents)! The gorgeous property was spotless clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed cooking in the beautiful kitchen and eating meals on the lanai with nice ocean views. Our kids spent a lot of time in the refreshing pool when we were not off on an adventure! We even got to BBQ one evening down by the pool and enjoyed the spa. We had a wonderful stay! Thank you!! Date of Stay: 3/5/17 to 3/19/17

Great Location

by Alan on 03/29/2017
We stopped in Kona for 4 nights on our way back home from 2 weeks on Oahu. The location was perfect. A short walk to downtown but far enough away from downtown that night noise was not a problem. Noise from the surf is quite loud sleeping with the windows open, but it is the hypnotic kind of noise that lulls you to sleep. It was evident that the unit had been updated recently. The kitchen was clean and well stocked with utensils and tableware. We also appreciated that the unit had a starter supply of bathroom supplies. The unit is clean, comfortable and well maintained. We would have no hesitation recommending it to friends and family. Date of Review: Mar 29, 2017. Date of Stay: March 13, 2017.

A bit of bliss at Waikoloa Villas!

by Michele on 03/28/2017
We loved staying here- The rental was spotless and was exactly how it looked on the web site. Well stocked kitchen, lots of towels and beach towels, boogie boards, and beach chairs. The surrounding property was also clean and well kept. We enjoyed eating at Pueos Osteria (twice!) The property agent that we spoke with was so helpful and got us into the property on short notice! We loved it! Would definitely stay there again.

Great Stay in Kona

by Richard on 03/21/2017
We had a wonderful week stay at this great condo, located directly across from Kahalu'u beach park, one of Kona's best snorkeling places. The condo was comfortable, spacious, clean and well provisioned with 4 adults and a one year old. Onsite parking was sufficient. The pool, hot tub and grounds were well cared for. Prior to my stay, David from the concierge service was helpful with several emails. I would definitely consider staying here again. The only drawback is the walk up, no problem for most adults but a bit of a challenge for the 90 year old with us. Date of Stay: 2/24/17 to 3/3/17

Perfect setting for a Hawaiian vacation

Great place to stay for families. Very quiet and cozy.

Delightful in every way!

by Sabrina on 03/20/2017
First time booking through Kona Coast Vacations and I have to say, it was perfectly smooth, no hitches at all. The Condo ( C32) at Kona Isle was exactly as described, the photos were accurate. It was sweet, clean, and perfectly located... not too far out of downtown Kona, but just far enough to be away to be nice and quiet. The beach was delightful, we sat many mornings under the palm trees watching the little yellow Tang fish in the surf. Having washer/dryer in the unit saved a lot of extra packing. Little marketplace just a 2 minute walk up the road ( the truck there had AMAZING crepes!). Would definitely stay here again! Date of Stay: 3/8/17 to 3/18/17

An amazing view and location!!!!!!

by Jill on 03/19/2017
My husband and I stayed in condo #410 at the Hale Kona Kai and it was just wonderful. This condo had the most incredible view of the beautiful pacific ocean and we so enjoyed swimming in the pool while the ocean waters washed in just on the other side of the sea wall. The condo was very clean, well stocked with the things needed to make breakfast or any other cooking one might want to do, and the bed was very comfortable. It was a short, easy walk to the town which was such a great way to enjoy all that Konas Alii Drive had to offer with shops and restaurants. We highly recommend this true gem of a spot in Kona. Date of Review: Mar 19, 2017. Date of Stay: Mar 4, 2017.

Lovely accommodation

SUPERB LOCATION!!!

by Herb on 03/18/2017
In fact, for us, the single best location on the Big Island - for views plus access to the whole Island, from the Kohala Coast in the far north to the volcano in the far south - we get around! We had quite a few hikes where we did not see another person on the entire excursion, and others with only an occasional, or few, fellow hikers. Things like the rain forest a few miles east of Waimea are special, nearly private, treasures. Same for the western slopes of Mauna Kea. For that matter, I think we only saw maybe 3 people on our hike into the volcano crater, from Volcano House (in the south) and back out. Absolutely delightful tropical forest going down and up, and on the barren floor, it is a few flat miles (forbidden) across to the main, bubbling caldera..In fact, we chose this specific unit because we LOVE communing with the Nenes and turkeys right outside our door. The picture here really doesn't do justice to the view, and the immersion experience with the birds. So we stayed a full six weeks, in what is essentially a nice, ground floor hotel room, with kitchen, etc. But not a full condo, per se, but very adequate for us. (Last year we stayed upstairs in a full condo, in the same development, probably 100 ft from this one.)

This was a great condo with many extra amenities

by Lea on 03/18/2017
I loved this condo, from the location to all the amenities included in the condo. Really cute little pool, beautiful location just about a mile south of Kona town, not on a swimmable beach but a great spot to just watch the ocean. There were 2 comfortable beach chairs, a few beach pads, plenty of beach towels, coolers, and even some spices in the kitchen.

Great Property

by Dan on 03/18/2017
This is our first time booking through Kona Coast Vacations and staying at Waikoloa Village. The property was as described-it was very clean, it had everything you needed and the overall maintenance of the grounds and pool area spotless. Had a great vacation and will book it again if we return to the Big Island. Also would like to recognize the staff of Kona Coast Vacations who have been very professional throughout.
 

Wow. What a view!

by Regina on 03/17/2017
This is a very nice property. Nice kitchen and a to die for. Master bedroom is lovely and the second bedroom is comfortable, but is pretty small. Living room smelled a bit musty. I let the rental company know and they were going to get right to it. The pool was great. Overall, I think it was a very nice place and a very good value for the area. Date of Stay: 2/23/17 to 2/28/17

Wallowing in Paradise

by Stanley on 03/17/2017
This was a second year in this Villa and, once again, every thing was fine. A change of ownership meant it was not quite as well furnished with dishes, silverware and the like but what we had was still more than adequate. The villa was clean on arrival with every thing working as it should. As an extra bonus, we became friendly with Kona Coast's local Inspectors, Marcie and her daughter. We have already booked again with them for next winter. Date of Stay: 2/1/17 to 3/1/17

KRV 203 a great place to stay

by Duane on 03/17/2017
We've been here numerous times. It's not for everyone, but it's been perfect for us. Only 12 units, so a good chance to meet your neighbors. Great setting. Units are dated, but the association is constantly upgrading the complex. A+ from me.

Kamilo Place

by Christine on 03/14/2017
We had a lovely time while staying at Kamilo Place. The pool was a fantastic addition. The kitchen was great for accommodating our crew. Date of Stay: 3/4/2017 - 3/13/2017

Worked out well

by Patti on 03/14/2017
Having a 2 bedroom gave us more room and being right next to the patio where everyone gathered was great. Date of Stay: 3/5/2017 - 3/13/2017

Sea Village Winter Retreat

by Catherine on 03/11/2017
We had an amazing time at this unit. It was beautifully decorated and we enjoyed the Hawaiian artwork. The view was outstanding and watched many beatific sunsets from the pool. It was also very quiet. Everyone respected the quiet times. Nothing went wrong and the resort is well maintained. Would go back anytime.

Simply amazing

by Kurt on 03/10/2017
Super clean, well appointed space that was conveniently located to everything in Waikoloa. Communication with the manager was consistent throughout the booking and stay. I can't wait to go back!

Very nice vacation

by Katherine on 03/09/2017
Property management company was a pleasure to deal with and quickly resolved some very minor issues. Housekeeping was adequate. Kitchen could have been better equipped. Location was perfect for us.

Great vacation rental!

by Patricia on 03/08/2017
We loved our stay at this condo. The location is perfect and it's proximity to the Queen & King shops. And the Hilton is nice - highly recommend you spend a day there as the grounds and pools are amazing. The unit itself was very nicely stocked with with everything we needed. It was large and comfortable. We enjoyed the lanai for almost every meal and loved the balcony off the master for morning relaxing. The pool closest to the unit was very close and great for families. The other pool is a bit of a walk and is too deep for little kids. My son wasn't able to use that one as he isn't a strong swimmer and couldn't touch the bottom. That was too bad as it is a bit nicer with all the rocks and the hot tub. The only negative was the carpeting. Although it was clean (as was the entire unit), it definitely has seen its day. The upstairs carpet needs to be replaced (just looks very tired); the main floor carpet was replaced with a cheap burber. It wasn't a huge deal and definitely wouldn't hold us back from staying here again, but it did take away from the overall look of the unit.

Feb 2017 (4.6/5.0)

by Doug on 03/07/2017
This was a comfortable condo. Loved the relaxed setting and access to a beach. Quite. Critique would include that the condo did not have any staples such as spices (except salt), cooking basics (oil, spray oil), or games.

Ya Gotta Go (4.8/5.0)

by Patricia on 03/07/2017
Casa de Emdeko is a quite, clean vacation rental. Close enough to downtown Kona to walk. Loved the staff cleaning; tending to the flowers. Recycling was an important issue...liked that. Kona Coast Vacation Rentals staff was very helpful and friendly...on the spot. We'll return. Enjoyed great food at Huggo's and Kenichi Pacific. Had a good time snorkling with Fair Winds out of Keauhou Bay. Staff was helpful and fun. Our only regret was that we should have stayed longer than 7 days.

Big Island Fun! (4.6.5.0)

by Shelly on 03/07/2017
We have stayed at Casa de Emdeko many times and always enjoy. This unit was clean, with updates to the kitchen and in a good location in the Casa. Just what we expected! We were disappointed, however, that owners did not allow access to washer/dryer, like many in the condo's do, but pay washer/dryer are available. It is walking distance to town (Hugo's Sunnyside Up is the best!) and to nearby beaches (the sand was "out" though at Magic Sands Beach), and a good starting point for driving to all parts of the island. Gypsea Gelato is a new favorite in Kealakekua and Big Island Brewhaus is a new favorite in Waimea! We spent time exploring new beaches and towns on both the north and south end of the island...lots of fun adventures! BUT... some of the best days were spent hanging out at the salt water pool right there at the condo! Whale watching was great this time of year and sunsets were also amazing!!!

When you think of “tropical oasis”….

by Eric on 03/07/2017
I could have vacationed on the Big Island without having left this house and would have been happy. When you think of tropics, you think of flowers, ocean views, reclining chairs, cool breeze… and this place had it all. It was hard to leave with so many cozy chairs to laze around on! But luckily it was a 5-10 minute drive from Kailua-Kona, with incredible snorkeling and delicious restaurants (all the poké you could imagine), and you can take these beautiful drives either north or south to the magnificent hikes and views of the Big Island. This island itself has practically every type of natural phenomenon that you can imagine... volcanoes, rainforests, reefs- it is a truly incredible place. And each night, we were excited to get back to hang around! I'll be missing those sunsets for some time. Thanks for the amazing stay! Dates of Stay: 2/14/17 to 2/20/17

A dream home for an extraordinary vacation!

by Allie on 03/07/2017
Summary: This open, airy, beautiful home in Kailua Kona is a gorgeous spot for any group that is looking for a luxurious, high-quality vacation experience. Review Details: Our stay at this home was exceptional. The layout of the house is such that there is no "bad room" - every member of your group will have a comfortable, spacious, and clean space to make their own for the trip. The views are unbeatable and the house is located in a perfect spot for getting easily down into town for ocean activities, restaurants, shopping, and more. Did I mention the views are unbeatable?! This is truly a postcard-worthy vacation home and I would recommend it ten times over to any friend, family member, acquaintance, or stranger. Dates of Stay: 2/21/17 to 2/28/17

Wonderful home away from home

by Shawn on 03/06/2017

Lovely island get away

by Margaret on 03/04/2017
Kamilo Place was a lovely home with an excellent location and views. It was perfect for the family which included two small children. Lots of open spaces for everyone both inside and out. The kitchen was well equipped for my son the chef to work his wonders for us all. Loved the breakfast and evening meals on the lanai overlooking the ocean. The pool was perfect. The location was great with easy access to downtown via Kuakini. Also just a 5 minute walk down the hill to beach and market.Kona Coast was very quick in responding to a plumbing issue. Date of Stay: 2/1/2017 - 2/16/2017

Great House and location

by Robert on 03/02/2017
This was a great house. I have used lots of homeaways before, but this one was the best set up. Good selection of everything you need. The deck by the pool was fantastic for the kids and grandparents to hang out in. The morning coffee and sunsets were great. I will be back. Date of Stay: 2/16/2017 - 2/27/2017

This home is amazing !

by Kris on 03/01/2017
This home is amazing and view is speculator, ocean watching is relaxing and peaceful on the lanai. Our family was able to enjoy all being together under one roof without stepping on each other’s toes. Outdoor showers are very enjoyable with Hawaiian breezes and fresh flower smell all around. Location is only a few blocks from main attractions. It’s a nice morning walk down to Ali Drive for coffee or tea. House is fully equipped for creating meals, which helped cut down on meal expenses. I would highly recommend this home for your vacation needs, as it will meet and exceed your expectations. Date of Stay: February 2017

Nice Condo

by Bill on 03/01/2017
Overall a nice condo. Little dated and worn, but that's reflected in the price. Paper supplies were a little light for two people for a week. No grill utensils which was a shame because the developments grilling area was beautiful. Had some appliance issues. Fridge compressor, off and on sounded horrible and seemed to run all night. Last night of the stay we used the oven and then could not get it to turn off. Switch went out, had to turn off at the breaker. Emailed the owner and property manager late that night about it. Complex had security roaming and it seems gardners were there frequently. Grounds are very well maintained. Walk to downtown Kona, but far enough away it was still quiet. Built up beach are perfect for sunsets. stayed 2/20/2017 - 2/27/2017

A perfect week....

by Susan on 02/27/2017
This beautiful, well furnished, and fully supplied house worked incredibly well for our family of 8! Especially enjoyed the back area - view, hottub (great kiddy pool with the heat off), shaded and sunny areas, and barbecue.

Nice place

by Daniel on 02/26/2017
Condo is well equipped and nicely decorated. Pools on site were nice. View is ok. Bit far from beach good if you like to golf. Tennis courts were good and uncrowded.

Relaxing ocean views

by Melissa on 02/26/2017
We really enjoyed our stay at this ocean view condo. The updated kitchen and upstairs lift were great! Would have liked to have air conditioning throughout the house as some nights were too warm to get to sleep when there was no breeze. It had a very noisy a/c unit in the smaller bedroom that we had to use because road noise was loud if we opened the window. Kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Overall a great stay and we would stay here again.

Wonderful Place

by Tom on 02/25/2017
Loved the location. Great to have everything we needed for the beach (towels, chairs, boogie boards, etc)

Great Condo

by Carol on 02/24/2017
We were very satisfied with the Condo. It is very spacious for 2-4 people and very quiet as well. It was equipped fairly well; with some minor improvements on supplies it would go from great to excellent for a guest. Furniture was very nice and also comfortable. The Lanai was fantastic! Some suggested improvements would be blender that works, better boogie boards(Costco), maybe larger beach towels(Costco), a few beach chairs to in. With these few minor suggestions again it goes from great to good. Loved being across the street from Living Stones Church; great place 🙂

by Bonita on 02/23/2017
Somewhat flummoxed upon arrive - no 'office' just a no so welcoming (I guess you could call it a) building - that didn't appear to ever be open.
Found our way to our Villa - very bright and welcoming. It has everything except an inside door mat - luggage scale, coolers for picnics, road maps which we missed until too late :(, super landscaping,

A Quiet Retreat

by Devida on 02/21/2017
My husband and I were extremely pleased with our condo, the quiet gated complex, the location and the Manager. This condo is supplied with everything you might want so that day to day living is easy. The layout is excellent. We would be happy to stay here again.

Convenient condo with all the essentials

by Nick on 02/21/2017
This was perfect for us. We have a 2 year old and there was even a child gate to keep him from falling down the stairs. The location is perfect - close to great snorkeling at Kahulu'u and across the street from a shopping mall with a grocery and drug store and several great food options. We had a great time.

AirBnb Review

by Behnaz on 02/20/2017
We have enjoyed our stay. We have used the pool with our two year old grand child quite a lot. We were close to restaurants and beaches. We needed extra blankets and they provided immediately. They recommended a rental place to get a crib for our grand child and that worked out nicely. We had nice view of the ocean and we enjoyed many sunsets at the balcony.

The Host contacted us several times prior to our stay to help set up excursions and tours. We were so happy to have that help and guidance. The neighborhood was super quiet and very relaxing. There were grills on the shared deck space - very convenient!

We liked our place. It has all we needed, 10 minutes drive to Keaholu shopping center and about the same going the other way to Kona Village. There's a deli store right outside the complex, so you ca get the basics right there. We loved the ocean water pool!! Hope to be back again.

The place was excellent. Clean and modern - the unit matched the description in the listing perfectly. We were centrally-located near restaurants and shops. Overall an excellent value when compared to resorts in the area.

We had high expectations and they were exceeded. It was lovely to wake up and listen to the waves with a cup of coffee in the lanai. And watch sunset at night. Can see ocean from kitchen and living space!!! Very clean and really nice to have laundry in facility. Property has owners and renters whom are all welcoming. The only fall back... you will want to have a car because town is too far to walk on the windy narrow road. Esp with kids! I would def come back and stay again!!!

Great place in an amazing location overlooking a nice little surf break and quiet hotel. Had everything we needed and was only a 5-10 min drive into town depending on traffic. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We liked this condo best of the three VRBOs we rented on different parts of the Big Island this trip -- finishes were high-end, it was the cleanest by far, best mattress(!), most convenient to shops, and falling asleep to the surf sounds was wonderful (vs our rental above Waipio Valley where the frogs made a deafening clamor ALL night!) Sometimes photos can mask wear and tear, but not in this case -- it was even better than the pics. Would book again in a minute even though it broke the budget -- if we had another 30th anniversary to celebrate!

Kona Coast vacations made our first family trip to KONA so great and comfortable. The place was very big, clean and comfortable. They gave me a perfect defection to get there and responded my questions very quickly. Our concierge, David was very patient with us and helpful.

We were very happy with everything about our Kona Coast Vacation Condo . We loved that our condo had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and that it was on the ground floor. We were so near the ocean we could hear the waves roaring every night. Casa De Emdeko was very near Kona's downtown so it was easy to get to numerous beaches , shops and restaurants . Our interaction with Kona Coast was professional and everything was as it was stated on line and in future emails. Thanks so much !

Great place to stay with an easy walk to the main strip

AurBnb Review

by Jim on 02/20/2017
The unit is definitely on the water with the waves breaking right in front of the patio. You can't swim in front of the complex because of the lava rocks and shore breaking waves. We were thankfully close enough to town to walk, because parking in town was difficult. Parking at the complex was very limited and we had to park on the road two nights. We enjoyed falling asleep listening to the waves.

by Irina on 02/20/2017
The unit is great, well equipped and spacious (1277 square footage). It is located on a very quiet area in the middle of the golf fields. The staff from Kona Coast Vacations was attentive and paid close attention to the smallest of details.

by Chrissy on 02/20/2017
Beautiful property!! Perfect location! I'm pretty sure this unit has the best view in the entire complex, including an expansive ocean view with a local pod of dolphins that hangs out right off shore. The condo had everything that we needed for a short 3 night stay. We didn't cook or do anything really extensive, but seemed like everything was there that we would have needed had we wanted to. Parking was easy, getting in and out to all our various activities was also very easy as there are several routes to and from the complex to minimize your time in Ali'i Drive traffic. My only regret (as with any good vacation) is that I wasn't here longer! I could have easily spent several days just hanging out at the condo, enjoying the view... but the big island has so many other things to do, probably good to plan for at least a week if you want to do anything and have down time. The place was super clean and very comfortably appointed. We weren't sure how to use the A/C, but thankfully our January stay was perfectly comfortable with just the fans. We made the mistake of trying to sleep with the bedroom windows open the first night, and were just annoyed for hours at hearing our neighbors come in from their evenings, even when they were trying to be quiet. At some point we wised up and shut the windows and never heard anyone for the rest of our stay. We ran the ceiling fan, and that was plenty to keep us cool. WE LOVED how you could HEAR THE OCEAN the second you walked in the door! It was just a constant soothing sound you could hear from every room. Open the slider and its even louder. It was great! We sat on the balcony, spotted whales, dolphins, mongoose, geckos. It was phenomenal! Thanks for letting us stay here!

This is a fantastic home and just as pictured. We were so impressed with the beauty of this home and view that we just sat in front of the pool drinks in hand for the first 5 days of our trip. The kitchen is well appointed, and the master bedrooms are very large. Both masters have large balconies with panoramic views of the coast. The home is in a a quiet gated community so it was very safe and secluded. Definitely book this place if you can!

Great 2 weeks

by Diane on 02/20/2017
The Alii Villas was a beautiful condo complex with a great pool and BBQ area. Unit 306 was very nice and we spent much of the time enjoying the covered deck when we were there. The kitchen was equipped with everything you might need. The only thing I would wish is that it would have been a little cozier in the living space. Maybe another lamp and table for some soft lighting, an area rug and coffee table and a couple of more pillows would have added a lot. However, the bedroom was very nice and the bed was very comfortable!!! All that said, we enjoyed our stay very much! Dates of Stay: 1/21/17 to 2/4/17

Great place to stay

by Elena on 02/20/2017
Great place to stay. It's clean and looks exactly as described here. The kitchen is well equipped, although we used it for breakfast / light meals only. 5 min away from cafe / restaurant area. There is also Green Flash Cafe outside of the condominium complex - 100% Kona coffee, panini and sandwiches made from scratch 🙂 Overall, great experience. Thank you!

Wonderful place to stay. Beautiful and convenient location!

GREAT VACATION

by Donna on 02/18/2017
We loved our stay at our vacation rental. So relaxing and lovely. I have one suggestion - please leave a little more laundry soap or have small packages of it available for purchase.

Overall a great experience

by Dewain J on 02/18/2017
Condo was perfect and well equipped. Location is isolated from the shopping but that is a good thing as it is nice and quiet and a short drive there. I have stayed closer but a lot of activity and noisy sometimes at the other complexes. The north swimming pool was cold and so was the hot tub. The south pool and hot tub were just fine. Beautiful grounds. Master suite is upstairs so beware of that. Downstairs bedroom perfect. Would stay there again.

Trip of a Lifetime

by Nancy on 02/15/2017
This was the trip of a lifetime for us. When my husband and I walked through the front door of this home, I was so overwhelmed by the view of the Pacific, and by the beauty of the house and grounds, tears actually came to my eyes. The pictures in the listing don't do it justice. From the fully stocked kitchen, to the Jacuzzi in the master bedroom, to the gorgeous pool and deck, there wasn't anything missing. I even got to watch my favorite soaps on the big HD t.v. in the bedroom. The house was meticulously clean (thankfully, no bugs!), the decor was attractive and modern, and the AC was a blessing- it gets hot in Kona! Many restaurants and stores are minutes away, as is a beautiful snorkel beach. (Try to arrive early to snorkel- it gets crowded fast.) We had a wonderful time at this premier location, and definitely plan to come back! Dates of Stay: 2/6/17 to 2/13/17

Great stay

by Linda on 02/15/2017
This condo is a lovely place to stay. We loved the first floor location - the patio was spacious with a place to relax and a place to eat. The first floor location make it easy to get to the pools and the common spaces. It was well furnished except for a few things. The lighting in one bedroom is very dim and the blinds in that room are older and difficult to work. We had a minor glitch over the entry code on arrival, but the managers were very responsive. Overall, we enjoyed our time there very much and would go back. Date of Stay: 2/9/2017 - 2/13/2017

by Larry on 02/14/2017
Great place and location. Fully equipped kitchen Furniture was very comfortable. Because its review the only small drawback was it is situated near the pool without the hot tub and far away from the one with. For places in the complex to be equal a tub should be installed at the smaller pool. Date of Stay: 1/15/17 to 2/12/17

The condo is recently updated with granite and lovely bathrooms. It had AC which is not always the case and much appreciated. I would highly recommend as just minutes to walk into Kona.

by Peter And Barbara on 02/12/2017
About the only thing we wished for was a nearby beach, but in every other way Keauhou Punahele B102 made a wonderful home base for a terrific time on the Big Island. From extra towels and linens to a very well equipped kitchen, nice furnishings, and a pool complex just steps from the spacious lanai we were more than pleased during our 10-day stay.

wonderful

we had such a good time in kona. The house was so comfortable and we could not wait to come back to it after our days adventures.

Relaxed and refreshed (4.8/5.0)

by Susan on 02/12/2017
We love this complex, it is peaceful, beautiful and easy to enjoy.We love the option of salt water pool and that our lanai looked out on palm trees rather then the opposite building. we enjoyed mornings with the sun lighting up the mts and the sea! The condo is well equipped even though it is a bit dated. Our one suggestion would be to remove secondary rug in living room or replace it, it was a tripping hazard. When the coffee pot stopped working the management team at Kona coast were available immediately by phone on a Sunday and we had a new coffee machine by the end of the day! Great service. Mahalo!

Hawaiian Comfort At It's Best

by Leslie on 02/12/2017
This is the second time I have stayed at this location and I am planning to return in a year's time! This condo is newly furnished and has many new features. There are 2 Lanai's. The front Lanai has a spectacular, uninterrupted view of the ocean. The thundering crash of the waves is so soothing....There is also a Lanai off of the Master bedroom (on the upper loft) which looks onto the mountains. All appliances are quite new and there is wireless Sonos throughout the condo. The kitchen is well equipped. The King sized beds are very comfortable. Very quiet and private. It is located right in the centre of Kona. Restaurants and shopping only seconds away! This location is a place you want to come back to!

Wonderful rental home

by Ron on 02/12/2017
Beautiful rental home with exceptional view and great management service. My only complaint is the parking. If Kona is at all busy, it's dangerous pulling out of or backing down the steep driveway. After having a family member get out to stop traffic a couple of times, we just parked along the street.

We will book again!

by Catherine on 02/12/2017
.We have booked various units in Kona before and this was, by far, the best experience we have had. Right from the booking process to our actual stay, we were very pleased with our stay at this beautiful location. The unit itself was conveniently located on Alii Drive, a short walk to the restaurants and stores. We are scuba divers as well and appreciated the proximity to the dive shops and the great shore diving at the Old Airport. Our condo was clean, bright, well provisioned, and had a huge lanai overlooking the ocean. Yes, it is just as spectacular as the pictures look.

Amazing condo with a beautiful view

by Rylan on 02/11/2017
Really great condo. Had a wonderful view and a huge balcony. Pool was normally uncrossed and complex was quiet. Would definitely stay here again.

Big Island retreat

by Stephen on 02/10/2017
we like ground level units, the patio extends into the landscape and makes the area feel much bigger. The patio is blocked from the car areas making it private, has a walkway out to get to the pool area. Landscape crew are always attending the gounds.

The stay was good. The house is nice and pretty close to many things on the the Island.

Hate to leave!

by Tom on 02/09/2017
We had a beautiful vacation in your condo. The worst part was leaving to come back to the mainland. All the island adventures kept us so busy. We went snorkeling, swam at the pool, walked to the nearby marketplace, strolled the Kona-Kailua boardwalk area, did some fine dining, swam with the manta-rays, went on a whale watching tour, saw the volcano, and relaxed, relaxed, relaxed! It was so great to be able to prepare a bite and head to our next adventure. The view of the ocean from the lanai was beautiful and we could hear the ocean waves crashing. The weather was so beautiful we didn't need the A/C on at all. And the rain only happened when we slept - but it kept the island lush and beautiful. We plan to return ASAP. Thanks so much - it was better than we imagined. Date of Stay: 2/1/17 to 2/7/17

2 couples 17 days

by Michel on 02/08/2017
Good stay, good amenities. We received 2 golf ball on the lanai and we had to clean the BBQ because it had to much flame to cook. The tv in the small room have no cable. No beautiful beach in this area, a car is a must! Overall a good place to stay but very near the road for the pool a bit noisy!

Paradise in Paradise

by Nam on 02/07/2017
This home is just as pictured in the photos. You get THAT sunset every night. We spent the first five days just sitting in front of the pool with cocktails in hand. The hot tub and the pool lights are a nice touch in the dark nights. The home itself is expansive. The double master bedrooms have views just as spectacular as the pool view as you see the resorts along the shore. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need. It is about a 10 minute drive to the main tourist drag with no traffic (20-30) with traffic, so not to far to get to the local restaurants and such. Definitely Stay here!

We loved this home! Perfect for our mini family reunion!

by Anna on 02/06/2017
This was the perfect place for my inlaws, brother/sister-in law and kids to stay. It was so close to Kona but felt private and isolated. It's a beautiful place! Our young kids loved it! We could see whales with out binoculars! The sunsets were amazing! Our only "complaint" and they are minor are to get grilling utensils and a grill light and the master bath water never gets hot. Everything else was perfect! Loved it and would highly recommend it! The property management was great! I had been scammed before so it was great to talk to a professional. They were easy, accommodating and quick to wend someone for a minor maintenance issue. Thanks Kona Coast! Date of Stay: 1/15/17 to 1/22/17

Kona Coast 3309

by Gerald on 02/06/2017
We have stayed @ Sea Village 3x now & each time is as expected=first class accommodations provided by Kona Coast Vacations (can't say enough good about their personnel, helpfulness, friendly, & accommodating professionalism). Unit 3309 is just as it is pictured but the pics don't really give you the real feel of how nice this upgraded unit is. Even a desk for your office needs. The unit lacks nothing for convenience, cleanliness, & amenities.

wonderful

by James on 02/06/2017
The home was well appointed and suited a family of 9 quite well. It was clean, well supplied and perfect location. Our one problem was not able to connect to the internet for 5 days and four of the adults were physicians trying to connect with patient information. Kona management along with Comcast finally resolved the problem with both a new modem & router. Date of Stay: 1/25/17 to 2/5/17

Great condo

by Paula on 02/04/2017
Enjoyed our stay at Sea Village 3112. The condo has newer furnishings, it was clean and comfortable. Loved that the lanai was always shaded and comfortable to sit and relax on. The kitchen had all the necessary utensils, pots & pans. So glad it had an abundance of dishes, including plates, bowls, glasses & cups.

Our stay was enjoyable, great location a few miles up from the main road but a nice quiet complex that is well looked after. Unit was clean and well stocked.

Accurate Listing

by David on 02/02/2017
A very accurate listing from the pictures, to the seclusion to the early morning choir of chickens and roosters. If you are a light sleeper take ear plugs. Very nice house but located at around 1500 ft so it is cooler in the evenings and morning. If you are looking for beach and hot sunny deck this is not it. Definitely need a vehicle but if you want to see anything you would no matter where you stayed. Surprised that the island does not adopt a more user friendly recycling program even for just cans and bottles.

Greatest trip ever

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The only negative issue had to do with the cleaning. Those areas that get missed, like underneath the couch where I found (noticed only because I was doing floor exercises) several macadamia nuts and the bathroom ceiling light fixture had a lot of dust and dirt in it making the bathroom lighting even dimmer. I took care of cleaning up both of these issues. The bathroom could use higher watt light bulbs. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies. The storage chest on the lanai had beach equipment which we appreciated. Stayed: December 2016 Submitted: February 2, 2017

Very nice spot to stay in Kona Kailua!

by Allan on 02/02/2017
My husband and I and a group of friends each have a condo Casa de emdeko in January. We loved the common eating area with grills & tables and chairs both in the sun & shade. The central garden & pool area is lovely and brings bird song & provides palm trees for shade. Other guests long time and short-term were friendly but we were able to enjoy our privacy also. Kona Coast Vacations was very responsive & helpful for all our needs. The building is older but quiet and well maintained. We can recommend this property and the rental company with confidence. And we love Kona even if we do end up driving a lot.

Beautiful condo with amazing views

by Karlene on 02/01/2017
The condo was beautiful and that view was so incredible! So convenient to everything and I loved that the beach was right across the street. 2 large rooms and a very open concept. lf there was a downside, it was that the bedroom walls didn't go all the way to the ceiling, so limited privacy. Booking was easy and overall the experience was great. Date of Stay: 1/21/17 to 1/31/17

This spacious and welcoming condo was well appointed, very comfortable and was immaculate. It was relaxing in the mornings and we enjoyed the sunsets in the evenings. Golfer's paradise. Only little negative, 6 miles from the nearest beach, but worth the drive. Great supermarket nearby with excellent selection.

Enjoyed our stay at Sea Village! Beautiful view from the Lanai!

by Marilyn on 01/28/2017
We definitely enjoyed staying here at Sea Village in this unit. It was very comfortable both inside the condo and on the lanai. Plenty of dishes in the cabinets, so we were able to prepare meals easily. We loved the view and the ocean sounds from the lanai and from the living room.

None Better!

by Paul on 01/23/2017
We've rented some fairly spectacular homes over the years and this one was no exception - in fact it may have been the best one ever! Location, cleanliness, detailed house instructions, a fantastically equipped kitchen and ease of working with the rental company all made for a wonderful stay. If we could change one thing it would be to upgrade the master bedroom bed and furnishings. As they are, the bed and furnishings are comfortable and functional but when compared to the rest of the house, the master bedroom is the weak link. The other two bedrooms are compatible with the house's overall character. We certainly don't want to be mistaken on this point - in a lesser home the master bedroom would be absolutely fine but in this home (where everything lease is over-the-top) it could use an upgrade. Lastly, the pictures accompanying the advertisement for this house are very appealing as they are for most rental homes. In this case, while accurate, the pictures barely convey the beauty of the home or its views. This truly is a 5 star home!

wo couples shared this home and it suited our needs perfectly. The lanai was great-spent every morning and evening enjoying the view. The condo is well stocked and we had everything we needed. The private elevator up to the penthouse was extremely helpful as we were lugging golf clubs to/from the condo everyday! We enjoyed our time here very much! Date of Stay: 1/13/17 to 1/21/17

great location,nice facility,easy to get too.

by John/Doree on 01/22/2017
It was our second time staying at the condo complex , last time on the third floor. Both units were similar in nature, up graded. It would have been nice to have comfortable chairs out on the lanai since the view was spectacular. 500+ square feet is a little tight but we managed. Staff were friendly. We would considered staying again. Date of Review: Jan 22, 2017. Date of Stay: Jan 4, 2017.

Our family LOVED it.

by John on 01/21/2017
The house was just as described on line, but it was a much nicer feel because of the outside space and the proximity to the ocean. We felt safe the whole time and I would stay there again. Our family LOVED it.

Great place to vacay!

by Chelsea on 01/21/2017
My fiancé and I had an amazing vacation; our best yet! Alii Villas was a great place to stay. We often went to Green Flash coffee which was conveniently located two buildings down (yummy coffee)! Kona town was a mile down the street, which was where we went to eat often. The sunset views from the complex were amazing! We would definitely come back to this location. One thing we would recommend to the owners is getting an iron for the condo, as I couldn't iron anything, as well as make sure the toilet paper is fully stocked. Other than those small things, we had a great experience and would recommend staying here! 

Luxury condo perfect for a family

by Brenda on 01/21/2017
We really enjoyed our stay at the villages 333. The condo was perfect for the 3 couples that stayed there since each bedroom had its own attached bath. It was comfortably furnished and well appointed with kitchen supplies, but bath supplies were a little lean. we look forward to staying there in 2018. Date of Stay: 1/12/17 to 1/19/17

Would stay again and highly recommend (5 out of 5)

by Edward on 01/20/2017
We stayed in this unit for 10 nights. It is just as beautiful as the photos depict. There are only six units in this condo building and we hardly ever saw the other tenants. The kitchen was the most well-supplied of any rental we have had before. We spent most of our time on the lanai which is oceanfront and has comfortable furniture. The rocky beach out front was fun to explore, but the water is too rough for swimming. The pool was warm and we always had it to ourselves. If there is any downside to this rental, it is the road noise, heard mainly from the master bedroom. The automatic sprinkler also went off at 5:52 every morning, and there are roosters of course. We did have issues with hot water. It is a solar system and the water was hot most every afternoon, but a hot shower in the morning was never had. There is a water heater "booster" which we turned on, but still the water was only warm. This wasn't a big enough deal for us to report it to the management company. The location is good, close to downtown and within a few minutes drive to beaches. The furnishings and artwork in this unit were beautiful. We will keep this one on the list to return to one day!
Manager/Owner Response: Aloha and thank you for your outstanding review and for the compliments about our condo. We are so glad you shared our love of the lanai, the art work, the furniture and the kitchen! We also want to let you know that the sprinkler noise is from the condo complex adjacent to ours and we’ve requested that they move the time of the sprinkler to 7 a.m. or later. Regarding the hot water, since the solar hot water storage is on the roof and we are on the first floor with the bathrooms towards the back of our condo, it can take a few minutes for the hot water to arrive and is usual very hot. Generally, the electric booster is only needed if it’s been cloudy for 3 or more days in a row, which is rare in Kona. Thank you again and we look forward to hosting you again someday!

Waikoloa Colony Villas Vacation

by Michael on 01/19/2017
My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at the Colony Villas. The condo was more than we expected. Clean, up to date and the grounds were beyond our expectations. Plenty of adventures and things to do. We just ran out of time. We will be back.

Awesome! Great Estate!

by Seigo on 01/17/2017
This house exceeded all of our expectations...! has a beautiful outlook and was located perfectly for us. We could see wonderful and amazing view from everywhere in the house. The house is very well equipped and supplied so we did not have to provide ourselves with any expendables for a week stay. Dining, supermarkets, gas station are 5 minutes away. We could enjoy beautiful sunset just in front of the dining room. About the other rooms, the pictures do not lie! Everything was as described. Overall, we would fully recommend this house! We would definitely want to stay there again on our next visit to BIG ISLAND! Mahalo nui loa

Unit 128 was wonderful

by Deborah on 01/14/2017
The unit itself was wonderful. Nicely decorated and very updated and modern. We had a few friends staying in separate rooms and this one was by far the nicest!! The property is very well maintained and quiet. If your looking for quiet this is the place. The complex itself I would not say is a very kid friendly atmosphere and the pool area is barely adult guest friendly. We ran across quit a few rude owners at the pool. No noise. No liquids even water we were told.. No food. No floating devices. I understand why they have to be very strict but we saw the HOA lady make a women take her small child's life vest out of the pool and make her stand outside the gate to eat a gogurt . I looked in the rule book and what was written there was quit different than what the owners would bark at people, So if your planning to want to enjoy a pool I would not recommend this complex to you. Otherwise the unit was great and close to town.

Beautiful sunsets and ocean view

by Guest from Bend, OR on 01/13/2017
We enjoyed our stay at Kona Riviera Villas 203. The kitchen was adequately equipped for us to prepare our meals. Even though the lanai was not private, we never had anyone walk by or through our lanai area. The pool area was well maintained. It was convenient to have a designated parking place available during our stay. This smaller condo complex was comfortable and well-appointed for our 10 days in Kona.

Great Stay in Kona Bay Estates

by Linda on 01/13/2017
Great location close to our ball tournament. Lovely, quiet, clean, spacious house in a private estate. Well kept and nicely furnished. Ample toiletry supplies and accessories.

Blissful

by Chris on 01/13/2017
We had a lovely stay here at the Orchid Inn - absolutely blissful. We love the location and how cool it is compared to sea-level. The nearby town is adorable, and town/beaches are never too far away. We recommend you have socks and long pants for the lovely, brisk mornings and evenings. We got used to and grew quite fond of the rooster crows each morning, but you may opt for earplugs.

Big Island Holidays

by Matthew on 01/12/2017
Our family celebrated Christmas and New Years on the Big Island. We had a wonderful time--even better than we imagined! This property was the perfect place for us to venture from on day trips or to rest and relax by the pool. The House: Beautifully furnished and in excellent condition. We had plenty of space to be on our own and every one had their own bathroom. We are a foodie family and the kitchen was well stocked with pots & pans, dishes, and utensils to allow us to eat many meals at home. We took a few holiday decorations to make it festive. The A/C was difficult to manage in all parts of the house (and none in the Ohana suite), but we were comfortable most of the time. The Location: Excellent location close to downtown Kailua and easy access to highways for other attractions. It is possible to walk down the hill through the development and access the beach, but not close enough for water activities. Local recommendations: Various farmers markets to stock up on fresh produce. TJs BBQ in Alii Marketplace for amazing BBQ ribs. Annies Island Burgers. Sam Choys and Huggos for drinks at sunset. Hapuna Beach was fun for the whole family. Long day trip to Volcanoes National Park is worth it!  We had a wonderful time and would definitely return to this home for a future visit to the island. Still much to explore!

Fantastic house!

by Carla on 01/09/2017
The house was a beautifully maintained vintage home. The view was amazing. It was spotless and very well stocked (beach gear, pool toys, kitchen items). The only small downside is that it is near the road and the traffic noise is quite loud, however it dies down from midnight to 6am. The upside is that once the traffic dies down you can actually hear the ocean waves! Dates of Stay: 12/30/16 to 1/6/17

Very nice stay in Mauna Lani Villages

by William on 01/09/2017
We spent a very nice week in this unit. Great condo layout and lots of space for family of five. Very nicely furnished, very comfortable. A few notes: (1) Condo was not as clean as expected when we arrived and BBQ was not fully operational. Management company took care of both problems reasonably quickly; (2) Unit is about 5min walk to small shopping center (nice), 35min walk to beach; (3) View was as expected (rooftops); (4) nice quiet area. Date of Stay: 12/31/16 to 1/7/17

Great condo for family of 5 (4.8/5.0)

by Helen on 01/08/2017
spacious modern condo, great location - 5 minutes to gas and groceries, good starting out point. Hour to kona ... Might rent a place here and then on an opposite part of island to see it all. But I loved this condo for our family!

Tropical HQ (4.6/5.0)

by Greg on 01/08/2017

Christmas In Hawaii

by Erika on 01/07/2017
We loved our time in Hawaii, spending many mornings and nights on the Lanai enjoying the view. Sunsets were phenomenal from the Lanai. We spent quite a number of days driving to the other parts of the island and it wasn't a terribly long drive to get back to the condo. When we go again we will stay on the Hilo side, it was gorgeous and much less touristy. The condo had everything we needed, we bought groceries and cooked most breakfasts and dinners and ate out on the Lanai. I would recommend KTA Superstores for your groceries, they were not terribly expensive and carried local items. We also frequented the farmers markets. Costco was a poor decision as we were only there for ten days and not all of the bulk items were used. There is a fantastic little coffee shop called Green Flash right at the entrance to the condo's. We loved being able to utilize a washer and dryer while we were there. We drove the entire Island while we were there, experiencing Volcanoes Park, the visitor center at Mauna Kea, the Zoo in Hilo, Waimea, Hawi. This island was like traveling the entire US in a week. It was amazing how many different ecosystems there were. Mahalo for having us.

AMAZING Property and Atmosphere

by Kelly on 01/06/2017
We loved this unit! For our first time visit to Hawaii this was a great place to stay! Centrally located and everything you need to feel at home. The unit was very comfortable. Waking up to the waves right outside your front door is the best! We will absolutely be coming back every year and hope this unit is available for us to stay in again!***This review was transferred from our old website to the new one effective Jan 1, 2017***

2 Weeks in Kona Reef Heaven

Everything was wonderful. Everything in the Unit worked well, no issues at all. Top floor privacy and view of surf break all day long.

Perfect Location and Nicely Decorated

by Marion on 01/06/2017
We loved the location and the view from the lanai. This condo would be very nice for a couple. I was traveling with my sister and we needed separate beds. I slept on the pull out sofa bed. The mattress was very thin and I would not recommend it for an adult unless a board was placed between the mattress and the springs. I weigh 130#s and it caved in between the springs with my weight. Because the view and the sound of the surf were spectacular I would probably be happy to sleep on the sofa bed again. The air conditioning is wonderful on a hot humid day. ***This review was transferred from our old website to the new one effective Jan 1, 2017***

Great oceanfront condo

by Michele on 01/06/2017
We had a 10 day stay here in Dec 2016. Top floor oceanfront condo, we could see yellow tangs darting in the clear turquoise water beneath us. Staff at the resort were friendly and relaxed. We didn't use the pool or the onsite barbecues, but they looked very nice. The grounds are well-kept and other guests mostly respected the quiet-hours. Ensuite laundry is nice. Location is about a mile south of the commercial/tourist district in Kailua-Kona, and it was nice to be nearby yet out of the busy area. Bed and furniture were reasonably comfortable, not the best, but no real complaints. Great kitchen. Premises were clean. Would definitely stay here again, The way these condos are laid out, they feel very private and secluded, and even though it's just off a busy road, the proximity to the ocean drowns out any traffic noise and it really feels like its just you and the ocean. Left on Jan 6, 2017 for a stay in Dec 2016

Wonderful home away from home, thank you.

Better than the posting led us to expect

by Christiam on 01/05/2017
We chose this place based on the pictures and the proximity to everything we wanted to do. When we showed up and met Dave, our expectations were surpassed. The house is larger than you expect and all the rooms are tastefully decorated. The kitchen and dining area were great for the eight of us. We cooked every night and hung out and then spent the rest of the evenings in the Lanais.

Great vacation home to enjoy Kona & HI!

by Michael on 01/05/2017
This is a fabulous vacation home. So close to many Kona experiences. We also loved both the private beach and the public beach a bit further down the road which was wasn't crowded either. Even a bit of snorkeling available at high tide in the public beach. The home itself was beautifully decorated and stocked with lots of beach items (towels, snorkel gear, chairs, etc. etc.) to make the stay that much more convenient.

Great vacation rental home in Kona

by Terry on 01/05/2017
The home was perfect for our party of seven. One is a 3 year old. The location is so close to the water & the closest beach is just right for young children. The pool was much appreciated as weather was warm & humid. The kitchen is well equiped and the two lanais are so nice in morning & evening. Bedrooms very comfortable and lower level has big screen for a few football games. We walked to town for shopping & luau.

What a delight

by Joanne on 01/05/2017
What a delight to stay in such a beautiful home. 11 nights and we didn't want to leave. Every thing was clean and tidy and location is so close to town not to mention the ocean which was enjoyed each afternoon. I can't wait to come back and would certainly rent this home for our next visit. Thank you!!!

Gorgeous location, amazing views

by Pat on 01/05/2017
Gorgeous views from the porch - potentially the best in that area because of the height of the porch. Very clean, extremely well kept up. AC throughout (and it actually works!). Such a beautiful house and location. ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

Sunsets on the Lanai

by Maureen on 01/05/2017
Three couples shared this home on the beach and would definitely return. The large lanai has attractive, comfortable furnishings for lounging and dining with unobstructed vistas of the ocean and sunsets. A gorgeous beach and lagoon is a few steps from the house. It was never crowded. The owners have equipped the house with everything you might need and management was exceptionally responsive. The DVD player was not working and they replaced it within a few hours. The main drawback is that the two bedrooms on the first floor share a bath. But we would still happily return because the other features of the home were so good. A great rental home.

Great vacation home

Perfect home away from home

by Graeme on 01/05/2017
This is a very beautiful home situated in the perfect locale. Great size for a family of four. It was a very close drive to all restaurants and shops on Alii Drive but yet so secluded and so much privacy. We could hardly hear other homes around us.
The home was well stocked, furnished with top end appliances, and very large entertaining space and the pool was a great addition. We swam in it everyday. The photos on this website did not lie, it is that pretty. We had a great stay and would recommend this home to others who are looking for a less crowded vacation. ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

4th of July (4.4/5.0)

by Sarah on 01/05/2017
This is our fourth trip to the island and we stayed here over the 4th of July. Kona is a great area and staying in Keahou Estates is fantastic if you are looking for sweeping panoramic views and quiet! You are about 15-20 minutes away from downtown Kona (not a lot of restaurant choices but there are a few, however if you are staying at the house in general you are cooking your meals and sitting on the Lanai enjoying the fabulous sunsets). For better dining options you need to go about 35-45 minutes up the shore to Waikoloa village Where there are several options for dinner. There is also a nice beach at waikaloa that is good for young kids, but if you like waves then go to Hapuna which is another 10-15 minutes north. Bigger waves can be found on the south side of the island (green sand beach which we visit every time). There is also a lovely black sand beach about 15-20 minutes past the south point road exit.

About the house.....Its beautiful and we would definitely return. The upkeep could be a little better but it is the ocean and Hawaii so sometimes that's to be expected. We recommend the surround sound get repaired so it can be used as well as the receiver which controls most of the media (they were not working). Outside of some other small issues which Kona Coast took care of promptly everything was wonderful! Kudos to Kona Coast and their professionalism! And a warm Mahalo to the owners for opening up their beautiful home to us! This is a driving island and there are many great places to go so explore!

Great stay

Whole family vacation

by Michael on 01/05/2017
This was a family vacation. Our children and their children were all there, eight in all. My wife and I had been to Hawaii several times and knew of Keauhou Estates. This time we decided to rent one of the homes. This property has a fantastic view. The owner has provided everything you could possibly want as far as supplies, linens, entertainment options, walls of books and DVDs, games etc. You just have to show up and supply your own meals. The grandsons went to the beach almost everyday and boogie boarded with the 3 boogie boards from the house. Nearly everything and option was provided by the property owner to make your stay enjoyable.

Terrific rental (4.8/5.0)

by Elena on 01/05/2017
This rental provided so many amenities. It was perfect for our family of 6. 4 Kids ages 14-21. Pros- Pool, hot tub, grill. Stocked kitchen (food was all we needed), multiple bathroom/showers got us out of the house quickly. Great wifi for the kids. Towels, washer/dryer, I can't say enough of how perfect of a home away from home it was. Cons-hot tub and side pool light didn't work. Called maint. (very responsive) and hot tub fixed, pool light wasn't so no night dips. We stayed in August and the locals even said it's rarely that hot. Almost everyday mid 80's to 90. Humidity 50-70%. No A/C, so it was very muggy and hard to sleep some nights. Outside it was cooler either front or side of house, but air wasn't moving inside well (even with ceiling fans). Oldest boy slept outside by pool one night. Couldn't shut up house when we left during the day because inside temperature became unbearable, and screens didn't lock. So we were told to leave house open. We locked valuables in the safe, but felt uncomfortable having to leave the house open and unlocked all day and at night while we slept. Gated community and security drives around, but I'd like to see that matter resolved for future renters. I didn't feel unsafe, but all of us having to leave our bedrooms doors open at night to try to circulate the air (no privacy) and then having all the screens unlocked was something we had to get used to. Knowing that heat/humidity is rare, even in August, means the next renters in Aug. may not have the same experience. In the end, we did love the house and enjoyed it greatly. The layout was great and the sunsets amazing. Clean rental and lots of supplies. The home is decorated beautifully. Our stay was wonderful. Thank you!

Excellent stay

The house and pool/whirlpool with ocean view were fantastic! The golf course in front of the property went bankrupt so the grass is brown instead of green, but it was much more private without golfers.

The Perfect Spot For a Family Vacation

by Emery on 01/05/2017
The perfect property for our family vacation with our 2 adult children and their spouses! Having three separate master suites ensured everyone had their own roomy private space. The common areas of the house were incredibly spacious and well appointed. The photos on the website give you a very good idea of the property with some pleasant surprises like the beautiful atrium with the water feature in the middle of the house. The sound of running water was most pleasant.... we just wish the timer had been set to run longer. The whole back of the house opens onto a beautiful lanai with a spa, pool, BBQ, outdoor eating area and outdoor bar all with a wonderful ocean view. The sliding doors are all screened as well. We enjoyed the spa most evenings. It was nice to have the pool available but we did find the water a bit too cool to spend much time in it.The location was ideal for our needs. The gated community is very private and quiet. However, it is very close to a beach, shopping centre and restaurants. It is only a short trip to downtown Kailua with all it's city amenities as well as being central to many of the activities we were interested in doing. We're glad we chose this location rather than one of the more remote resort properties along the Kohala Coast. We found the house very clean, well maintained and well stocked with all the supplies promised. One bedroom did have a couple significant stains on the carpet that could have been attended to but otherwise everything was in excellent condition. Kona Coast Vacations handled all our arrangements efficiently and responded promptly to any questions and concerns. Michelle and David at Kona Concierge were most helpful with offering advice and booking activities. Thank you to the owners and management for a wonderful stay.

Paradise

by Harvey on 01/05/2017
Our vacation home was perfect. The property description and amenities are spot on. We enjoyed the beautiful ocean views and sunsets from the large, comfortable lanai. The pool and jacuzzi were enjoyed by all. The great customer service throughout the rental process and our actual stay was very much appreciated.

Paradise on the Big Island

Beautiful home - great stay!

by Traci on 01/05/2017
I was hesitant to book this property as it had no reviews. After being reassured by the rental company, I went ahead and am glad as it is a fabulous place to stay! We wanted 4 master suites and this was the most affordable home we found. It's an incredibly good deal as the home is very large, has a private pool, and it's very clean.The master suite is huge. The 2nd bedroom, right off the front door, has its own veranda. The bathroom has just a tub with a shower wand, no curtain, so it's not ideal for a shower. The other 2 bedrooms are a bit separate from the main house, but that was actually nice since it afforded more privacy. However, if you've got young kids it might not work for you. The neighborhood is very quiet and secure.The pool is great – lots of room to swim or float – there are several blow-ups for the pool. 4 nice lounge chairs. Lots of beach towels! We brought extra from home but didn't need them. The towels in the bathrooms were nice, too. I think we had a lot of brand new things since we were the first renters – nice! The kitchen is fully stocked with just about anything you could need (other than food). They have tons of new dishes including plastic ones that are safe for the pool area. The only things I can think of that they didn't have were a garlic press and foil! Fully stocked in the way of paper napkins, paper towels, tp, and laundry soap. There wasn't any dishwashing detergent, but I think that was an oversight and we just bought our own. We used the barbecue a couple times. We had a couple issues with the internet and the company responded immediately. They were very good to work with.The location was great for us as we had a car. It is about a 10 minute drive into the downtown Kona area. There is a nice shopping center and movie theatre about 2 minutes drive. Beaches are as close as a 5 minute drive. Costco about 20, longer depending upon traffic.I highly recomm

Review for kila kila house

by Diniz on 01/05/2017
We were very satisfied with the Kila Kila house it had every thing we needed plenty of room and very well kept.

Great place to stay at if you have a car! (4.8/5.0)

by Stefan on 01/05/2017
Very modern and clean house in a very quiet area of newly built houses. Next supermarket/shopping center > 1.5 miles away.Large rooms and kitchen, the latter being well equipped. Nice terrace with view to the ocean and BBQ. Very comfortable leather sofa in living room with huge TV and some (quite old) DVDs. Unfortunately, no AC, only fans (therefore one star less in the overall rating).Easily accessible with code. ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

Very nice place (4.4/5.0)

by Lyle on 01/05/2017
The house is stunning. The view, well it's hard to describe how beautiful it was. Everything about this house is great, with only one exception, it is located on a busy road and at times the traffic was very noisy, especially the large trucks trying to climb the hill. If it wasn't for that this would be the perfect place for us. We may be sensitive to the noise as we live on a farm where it is quite. We loved the house and the view very much. The owners where very friendly and helpful. I would rent from Kona coast vacations again. They did all they could to please us and accommodate us with our needs. If it wasn't for the road beside this house I would rent it again. It is close to beaches and town.

Paradise in paradise

by Joseph on 01/05/2017
We took our family members to the Big Island for our 70th birthdays. The ages were from 13 - 70; all of us LOVED Koihale. The architecture was unique, the layout was flowing, the size of the house was perfect, and the location was close to everything. The furnishings and kitchen supplies were comfortable and plentiful. Whether eating at the dining room table or enjoying the atmosphere of the koi ponds, meals were fun.
The house was amazing, and the only down side was the humidity. Even with all the house fans, the electric fans, and the windows open, the house was difficult to cool. I'd suggest visiting at another time of the year when the weather is less humid. All in all, we all were extremely satisfied.

Living in an Architectural Gem

by Valentia on 01/05/2017
We stayed at KoiHale for 6 nights in August, 2016. What a wonderful way to cap our vacation! The house was beautiful, a classic of its time and type. We loved discovering all of the different rooms, connections, and architectural details. There were a lot of different spaces that allowed our large party (7, including 2 teenagers) to find privacy, yet we all met in the large kitchen for sharing stories and cooking together. The upstairs master bedroom was luxurious and comfortable, and the elegant ohana suite downstairs (off the pool) was a great private space. The main floor bedrooms were a little warm at the start of the evening, but there were plenty of overhead fans to help keep us comfortable. The property met the descriptions we read on-line and was clean and well-stocked. The 3-layer koi pond was fantastic (look out for the frogs every evening!)and we spent many hours on the lanai (breakfast, lunch, after-dinner...). We made good use of the lovely pool every day, along with many trips to the beach (Kahalu'u beach really IS great for snorkeling!). The house and grounds were well maintained, and the Kona Coast vacations crew were very helpful at all times. A special shout-out to David at Kona Concierge for his excellent suggestions and assistance with the surfing lessons and the octopus farm visit. We would definitely recommend this beautiful house!

Unbelievable rental place! (4.8/5.0)

by Ana on 01/05/2017
The Koihale is just as beautiful live as it is shown in pictures. Beautiful, peaceful house, superbly maintained and with lots of attention to details such as excellent cookware and linings. Couldn't have stayed in a better place. ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

Kona Family Vacation (4.2/5.0)

by Steve on 01/05/2017
The home was beautiful and exactly as described on the web site. Our family was able to enjoy each other in one home versus multiple hotel rooms at a resort. The ability to hang out at the pool or in front of the big screen watching the Olympics with no other guests around was quite nice. The home was a bit far from the beaches and nicer restaurants, but this situation allowed us to eat more meals as a family and cut down on the cost of having to eat out for every meal. Overall, the house we rented was perfect for our family vacation. ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

Great stay in a beautiful home (4..8/5.0)

by Danielle on 01/05/2017
We had a great time in this lovely home. The children love the pool. The house is well equipped with pool toys and full set kitchen ware. Very nice view of the ocean and sunset. The staff is very professional with any questions. Impressed and would go back in the future.

We loved the Lanai!

by Kim on 01/05/2017
Very nice house for the four of us spending a week on the Big Island prior to kids going back to college. We have rented a home in this same neighborhood, so we knew it was quiet. The amenities and ease of slipping into the Hawaii life was great! Mahalo

Hawaii Paradise!!!! (4.4/5.0)

by Jeffrey on 01/05/2017
This was a fantastic place to stay. Yes, some of the cushions on the deck needed to be cleaned up a bit. And yes, some of the cabinets could be cleaned up a little as well. But overall, it was a wonderful place to stay. Very convenient place to stay. Very private. Very quiet a night. The house had everything we needed to get started. Loved the artwork throughout. The pool was the best part. It's wonderful to have your own private swimming pool. Also, having the grocery store just minutes away was a huge plus. This place was so nice, we did very little sightseeing. It was just a joy to relax at the home, and by the pool. Very ample parking. Just overall a great home. So nice in fact, we booked it again for another 25 nights for the end of the year. Can't wait to get back there!!!!

Perfect venue for a family holiday.

by Olly on 01/05/2017
Lovely open plan house. Perfect living accommodation for family with space for everyone to relax together or quietly on our own. The pool is a real plus. Car needed. We will look to rent this property again if possible. ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

The Lanai is the Heart of the home (4.8/5.0)

by Leslie on 01/05/2017
There were 4 couples who stayed very comfortable in this beautiful well decorated home. We could have invited another couple because the family room is set up just like a 5th bedroom. We never had to the lanai doors the whole time we were there. The Concierge Service was great helping to set up our tip to the Volcano with tips on sites along the way. They were there every step of the way to answer questions and give tips for the kind of visit we wanted. We will all be glad to return to Hawaii.

by Jessica on 01/05/2017
We had a great time. Perfect house, location and view for perfect family vacation!! Only suggestion... Don't leave your fruit on the counter, the little gecko's (I think that's what they are) love bananas.

Absolutely beautiful!

by Amy on 01/05/2017
My mother, four boys, and my husband and myself decided to go to Kona for a vacation. Hotels would have been cramped, so we decided to rent a house. We were so happy we did! The experience was a truly authentic way of island life! Close to the beaches and main highway on the island made it convenient! The pool in the front yard is the perfect size to cool off in the heat or a night swim. The open Lanai was perfect for meals with a beautiful view of the ocean. We loved the colorful wild birds in the yard and welcoming geckos! The bedrooms are beautiful with comfortable beds and extra fans to help move the ocean breeze throughout the room! Highly recommend Kona Coast Vacations to help with your vacation! They were friendly, helped book excursions (Manta ray snorkel is a must) and made the experience that much better. Mahalo to David, Michelle and Amy for all your help!

Yearly Hawaiian vacation

by Kevin on 01/05/2017
The house exceeded all expectations, and the kona coast vacations concierge was a very nice added amenity, if ever on the big island again I will not hesitate to stay in this same place. ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

My family, nine of us, really enjoyed our Kona stay.

by Sherry on 01/05/2017
Very satisfactory. House was large enough for everyone to do their own thing. Kitchen was excellent with utensils. Location was great for shopping, beach visits, etc. we would certainly do again!

Great Island Getaway Home

by Jennifer on 01/05/2017
The Maluna Palm was even better than I expected. Its breathtaking sunsets, refreshing pool, and great living space helped us have a relaxing and enjoyable time on the Big Island. Our family of four (kids 7&10) had ample space to do our own thing at home.The location of this home is choice for exploring the Kona, Kohala, and Pahala Coasts. Volcanoes National Park and Punalu'u Black Sand Beach were two day trips we made from the home. We visited Wailea Beach (Beach 69) and Hapuna Beach a total of 4 times and found the 40ish minute drive to be satisfactory since we stayed the bulk of the day. Maluna Palm is well-appointed. When we stayed there, the garage had 2 functioning beach chairs, two beach mats, multiple coolers, and an umbrella. We added kids sand toys and a water cooler to the collection. The kitchen was not lacking anything you would desire to cook. It had a toaster, coffee grinder & maker, slow cooker, blender, rice cooker, and every sort of pot/pan/implement you need. We enjoyed dinner at home on the Lanai all but one night. I strongly recommend doing your grocery shopping at ChoiceMart 20 minute drive south of the home. We appeared to be the only tourists in the store and it was full of local merchandise. It definitely had the best options for our foodie family. The pool was a real treasure. It was the perfect refreshing temperature and did not smell like chlorine at all. My kids spent hours and hours in it while my partner and I relaxed in the lounge chairs. Should we return to Hawaii again, we would certainly want to stay at this gorgeous vacation home.

Lovely house (4.8/5.0)

by Alan on 01/05/2017
This house was as described with all the facilities we could ask for and well maintained. The house managers were very welcoming and helpful when we accidentally damaged a screen door. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to any other family

Paradise

by Andrew on 01/05/2017
We couldn't be happier with our stay. The home was super clean and beautiful. The kitchen had everything we needed and the pool was perfect to relax in. There was tons of beautiful flowers all around the house. I highly recommend staying here. ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

Mountains in the mist

by Anthony on 01/05/2017
This place had incredible views. We would wake up every morning to watch the sunrise and listen to the birds make beautiful music. We did not realize their was a mountain to see, some days the clouds hid it from view. What a way to start the day. And the pool was so much fun for our family.The kids had a blast and so did we. We would be in it some mornings before 9 a.m. Everything about this place was wonderful. Great location and stunning views. I wish we could have stayed longer!

Perfect Getaway!

by Lori on 01/05/2017
We were a group of 4 adults, one teenager and one toddler and this rental was so perfect for our vacation. Loved everything about the home -- the location, the layout of the home, the saltwater heated pool, the fenced back yard. Also, the home was in great condition and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Thank you so much!

Great home with ocean view

by Susan on 01/05/2017
We loved this rental home! It exceeded our expectations. It's close to shops and grocery. Loved the floor plan for adult family members. The quiet nights were very relaxing. Felt very safe in a secured neighborhood.

Best Vacation Rental Spot

by Terry on 01/05/2017
This was my second year staying at the Nakukui Elua and hopefully will be staying there again in 2017. This rental property is the ideal vacation spot. Last year (2016) did all of the tourist hotspots since I had not been to Hawaii for many years, but this year actually stayed at the house more and just had a very relaxing and leisure time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and demands. What a great trip!!! ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

Would Rent Again

by Melinh on 01/05/2017
I loved the home and so did the guests with me. The main selling point for me was the lanai that stretched the entire back section of the house- including living room and kitchen. There were a few things I that I think would make it easier or information that would serve the next guests:1. The pool is in the backyard of the house, but because the house is on a hill, the pool is down a few steps at the bottom of the hill from the house. I preferred this as I have kids, but this information was lacking in the description of the house.2. I had also inquired as to whether the house has a crib. I was told they did not and directed to a baby rental center. I decided to travel with our travel crib (a sort of pack and play). Upon arrival to the house, I found a pack and play in the master closet. This was a little annoying.3. I would have appreciated also a notice on when the gardeners/landscapers were scheduled to come and work on the house. We had planned a day to stay at the house and hang out at the pool. The landscapers arrived and stayed for 4 hours. There's no way to get away from the noise except to leave the house. I would have appreciated this information ahead of time to plan appropriately.4. The information book did not state a day that the garbage trucks were to stop by.5. Information also not readily found- how close the house is situated to the beach. The house is up the hill in the rainforesty area of the island, about a 10 minute drive from the beach. Recap: I loved the house and the communication from Kona was great, but there was a bit if missing information that I had to find myself or had to ask to get the answer to- I feel like these things were easy to answer questions that any renter would ask, so it is kind of a misstep to not include any of this information on the rental page or information book on arrival.I loved the house and would rent again.

Excellent place (4.6/5.0)

by Ben on 01/05/2017
We really liked the house. Perfect for families with the pool and Ohana. We will definitely stay here again when traveling with large group.

Beautiful vacation home

by Cassandra on 01/05/2017
Our party of 10 + a baby enjoyed the Ohai home. We had lots of space . The property is lush with plants, flowers and grass. The home was well stocked with everything you would need. I wish we would have known they had a high chair and playpen for babies so we wouldn't have to check lots of big items on plane.

Beautiful retreat

by Elodie on 01/05/2017

A Place In The Sun

by Genevieve on 01/04/2017
Wonderful house, pool, and views of the Pacific and CRAZY sunsets! A comfortable, well equipped, and totally cool house located on a private road yet close enough to Kailua-Kona, snorkeling trips, dolphin swimming, resorts, beaches etc. Love the geckos and wild turkeys! ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

Perfect view of the ocean in luxury (4.8/5.0)

by Lori on 01/04/2017
Almost perfect stay.The living room ceiling fan did not work nor did the bathtub plugs work. The rental co.called the next day to check and see if everything was okay. We did let them know about the problems and by the time we returned home from our activities the fan had a new switch and the tub had a new plug. It was a little too small but we made it work. We were sad to leave at the end of the week.The only downside side was the weather was just a little to cool to enjoy the pool.A hot tub would have been nice. Close to the Kapalua beach (9 min)with excellent snorkeling. Plenty of extra beach towels,chairs , umbrella, boogie boards,& snorkling equipment. Would definitely love to return to this home. Would recommend 4 wheel drive vehicle to be able to visit the secluded hard to get to beaches. P.S the beds are very comfortable.

Great Family Vacation Home

by Allan on 01/04/2017
A beautiful home with a magnificent view. Very spacious for our family reunion of seven people. Wonderful salt-water pool, private, and in a quiet neighborhood. Best stocked kitchen we have ever used. Loved every aspect of it except the openness of the home allows sound to carry to all parts of the house making it harder for our 18 month old to sleep and nap. ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

Great Home

by Amy on 01/04/2017
This home does not disappoint! It's tucked away in a quiet location where you can enjoy beautiful sunsets from the pool and also close enough to town to enjoy restaurants and activities. The house is equipped with everything you'll ever need and is absolutely spotless! We will definitely be back!

A perfect stay (4.8/5.0)

Beautiful Kona House (4.8/5.0)

by Jane on 01/04/2017
The property was as lovely as shown in the pictures. Beds were very comfortable. Sitting on the lanai overlooking the upper Kona area was extremely relaxing and we enjoyed the distance from downtown busy Kona. However, we were very close to all shopping. The spa is great as it quickly warms up; the pool was a bit cool which caused us to not use it as much as we would have liked. We also had a battery operated smoke alarm go off without provocation at 11 p.m. at night. Property Management sent someone over the next day to take care of it. Overall, a very enjoyable visit.

Amazing Vacation!!

by Hilary on 01/04/2017
We absolutely loved the rental house! It exceeded all of our expectations and would highly recommend! The pictures of the house were very accurate.

Couldn't Be Happier

by Linda on 01/04/2017
A part of me is hesitant to give a review because I don't want this gem of a place to get too popular before my next visit. My family and I stayed 3 days in this condo, and while we perhaps did not get to know it too intimately in that short time, we had little to no complaints. Most everything is updated and functioning great. You can open the entire place up to the elements with the sliding windows, or close them and pay for A/C (which I recommend in the summer if you're not used to the humidity). The patio/lanai is incredible and overlooks a great little beach that you can walk down to via the access gate behind the pool. There is snorkeling straight out or just to the right. In our three days there, we hardly saw another person. We really felt like we had our own private area which you wont find at one of the larger complexes.The condo also came stocked with plenty of other things like glue, binoculars, and detergent that came in handy. We were never wanting for anything.If I really had to give a complaint, the only thing that I'd suggest is perhaps upgrading the beds a little bit or putting a softer pad on them. They are not uncomfortable by any means, but they could be more comfortable. Otherwise, for the price, this property is fantastic. The owners have done an exceptional job and I can only hope that it is available for rent the next time we visit.Thanks for everything,Evan

Great condo

A little bit (okay, a lot!) of heaven (4.8/5.0)

by Bill on 01/04/2017
It was the trip of a lifetime for the sisters Linda! We were attending a wedding of a friend and decided to take our sisters along. I found Hale Pohaku 3 ingriguing based on its internet description. I booked it. I was contacted by David, the concierge, immediately after the booking, offering his services to book events and be our intermediary. What a delightful man AND service. He proved to be very helpful! It's a long way from South Dakota to Hawaii, and we were exhausted when we arrived. EVERYTHING was as it should have been. The view is spectacular. The accommodations, comfortable and well appointed. The lanai? Oh my, the lanai! Morning coffee. Mid morning coffee. Lunch. Afternoon coffee. Supper. Pre-bed nap. All on the lanai! In all our travels, the lanai not ranks FIRST on the list of "Oh My's!" Our suggestion for improvement? As you book this property, opt for the additional cost of air conditioning. We learned the first night, and by 10:00 the next morning, we had air! Properties live and die by the service accompanying them. I have nothing but praise for Kona Coast Vacations. We are old. We try not to revisit a place until we've been everywhere we want to go. Hale Pohaku 3 may break that trend. We would love to return!

by Arne on 01/04/2017
Very spacious and nicely appointed with quality furnishings. Well maintained grounds and pool.Management company was very responsive, delivering a new barbecue that the unit and complex was missing.Without AC we used the ceiling fans and opened the many windows. Only drawback to that was the end units location beside a noisy side street.Overall, really enjoyed our two week stay.

Perfect Vacation!

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. This rental accommodated our family of 6 perfectly! We felt total relaxation for our entire stay! The pictures on the website were absolutely accurate. We were able to easily travel south to the volcano and north to Kona and beyond. We really enjoyed the Lanai, taking in the beautiful view as presented in the pictures. Thank you so much for this perfect vacation!

We have been in this unit before and still very happy with everything that is included in it. Truly a home away from home. If anything needed to be attended to, the Kona Coast folks dealt with it pleasantly and immediately. The carpet could probably do with a clean soon but other than that everything was fine. Great place for a holiday!

My wife, two kids (6 & 9), and mom all had a blast.Normally we try to avoid the overcrowded hotels and large resorts in favor of a more relaxed environment. This condo was a perfect fit for our family. We were able enjoy home cooked meals on the patio while watching the ocean, and still be in a central enough location to enjoy a lot that the island had to offer.Definitely a good trip and a great stay!

Beautiful high-end condo in wonderful location (4.8/5.0)

by Lynda on 01/04/2017
This condo is absolutely beautiful and is located on the ground floor with a wonderful ocean view. The community condo pool was conveniently located nearby. The only thing that definitely needs to be changed in this condo is the queen bed in the second bedroom should be a king. There is enough space to accommodate. This is a luxury condo that demands a larger bed for ALL guests. We will return if the bed is changed because we always travel with another couple.

Spectacular!

The Perfect Chill Spot

by Joey on 01/04/2017
It was really easy, and the place was really nice. I really hope to go back soon. The complex was quiet, there was parking and the condo itself was really well taken care of, beautifully furnished and just comfortable to be in. We spent a lot of time on the lanai watching the ocean. We raced back from every days adventure to make sure we caught the sunset from the lanai. It was really nice having a kitchen and laundry too. The AC worked pretty good except my wife and sister in law got very hot each night when they tried to sleep. Maybe there's a trick to the AC we didn't know...

Very Tasteful Art (4.6/5.0)

by Cynthia on 01/04/2017
The view is awesome and the property was well furnished with tasteful artwork. The complex was much larger than I expected but still had a reasonably private feel. I did not know the complex had complementary activities until we left. If these are also available to the renter, it would have been nice to know in advance.

Delightful Unit - Great View

by Richard on 01/04/2017
This studio unit was more than we expected. Nicely furnished, quiet, clean and well maintained and more than enough space for two people. We saw whales in the ocean while relaxing on the lanai. Very close to Kaiula-Kona Village and a snorkeling beach. Nice coffee shops and restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay - would return in a heartbeat!

So wonderful

Fantastic views and ocean breezes

by Licia on 01/04/2017
The condo has beautiful views, ocean breezes and decor. The gorgeous wood finishes and updated interior make this unit stand above the rest. One of the nicest I've stayed in for the price. Location was perfect for our south Kona Coast adventures. Close to amenities but felt a million tropical miles away! Thank you for a great stay.

WOW! What a spectacular view!

by Richard on 01/04/2017
Fabulous 2-week stay at Surf and Racquet 1206! Kitchen was top notch for preparing meals. We donated a muffin pan to the bakeware selection. Really appreciate the beach accessories in the deck box (i.e. chairs, mats, boogie boards, snorkel gear). The place was spotless upon arrival. Very comfortable beds and luxurious linens. A few picky things: could use more paper products upon arrival (paper towels, TP, napkins), a few burned out light bulbs, kitchen faucet leaked, so water accumulated under the sink and the lanai most definitely could use a couple of ceiling fans. None of these little things, however, should keep you from booking this place. It is gorgeous! A BIG thanks for a wonderful stay on our first trip to the Big Island! Mahalo!

Stunning views from most of the condo. Beautifully appointed and even though there isn't AC all the fans made us very comfortable even in the middle of July. We will be back. Thank you!

Fantastic views and great location (4.8/5.0)

by Marie on 01/04/2017
Apartment was in top condition. Everything was clean and high end appliances. We really enjoyed our stay. Pool was being renovated which was a shame but overall great stay. Kona does get quite hot but we were provided with lots of fans. ***This review was transferred from our old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

Awesome Condo

by Jane on 01/04/2017
Had a great time in this gorgeous, spacious condo. Very clean, great view, and lots of room. Convenient location, and far enough away from the busy town of Kailua, but not too far. Highly recommend this condo, and would return.

Wonderful! (4.8/5.0)

by Jane on 01/04/2017
The unit was very spacious and beautiful. The loft bedroom and bath were nice and large and quite comfortable. The two downstairs bedrooms were also comfortable. The view was spectacular! The lanai is ocean front!! And we loved the location of the development. The only suggestion I would have is to add to the stock of dishes & kitchen items. Otherwise, everything was great and we would definitely stay there again. The grounds were beautiful and were well maintained, as were the pool and tennis courts. I highly recommend!

Great ocean view condo

Big Island restful vacation

by Stephen on 01/04/2017
We have rented this unit for a second time. We stayed 28 days each time. The unit is in Waikoloa Village which is NOT at Waikoloa resort. It is a quiet location that looks out over the golf course and provides a great view of the sunset and a small view of the ocean. This time we rented from Kona vacations. They were very helpful with answers for any of our questions (I used email during my stay). They provide good support and would use them again.This unit has 2 master suites and 1/2 bath at the entrance. It has a washer and dryer.The location provides a short drive to a KTA grocery store and a 10-15 minute drive to Hapuna Beach. We spend the morning at the beach and then use the afternoon to explore options. If you want to try horseback riding try Paniolo Adventures. We are novice and they have a City Slicker ride that walks horses

Quiet and Spacious

by Amber on 01/04/2017
Very quite and spacious place to stay. Only bad thing I can say is the shower didn't seem to ever get hot enough.

Beautiful condo! (4.4/5.0)

by Andrea on 01/04/2017
We felt welcomed, comfortable and at home.During our time there, there was some issues that came up with the PH in the pool, which was disappointing, and seemed a little weird that it took over 4 days to resolve. We only got to the pool the first day during our stay, which was quite frustrating as we were traveling with kids. The master bedroom was quite warm, the AC didn't seem to come though the vents in that room well. But we were overall happy with our stay and would stay there again.

Great vacation

by Shawna on 01/04/2017
The condo was very nice and located close to shopping, eating, and the beach. We had a beautiful view of the golf course and the ocean. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen had everything we needed. The pool was nice. ***This review was transferred from out old site to the new one Effective Jan 1st, 2017***

Great Place to Stay! (4.4/5.0)

by Alice on 01/04/2017
We spent the month of January 2016 in unit A-309 and had a wonderful time. The place was well equipped, clean and newly remodeled. Sandi and Daryl were a joy to work with. (Living room sofa could stand to be 's showing wear and not all that comfortable any more.)

A Home Away from Home (4.8/5.0)

by Sharon on 01/04/2017
We have been staying at Waikoloa Fairways for several years. It has truly become our home away from home. We have stayed in several units at the property and have found all to be satisfactory.

Home in Paradise

by Gayle on 01/04/2017
We have come to Waikoloa Village for years. We have friends that lived in the area. Fairways is a very nice place to stay but the Fairways is not a resort, the place is a home.Village Market is excellent grocery store, places to dine Lava Java great coffee and breakfast, Banjy's at the golf course excellent macadamia crusted MahiMahi and fish tacos, Pueo's Osteria good Italian-inspired.Hapuna Beach State Park 15 minutes away and great for boogie boarding has rentals for beach chairs and boogie boards and Three Frogs Cafe.

Great place!

by John on 01/04/2017
We enjoyed this place very much. It was very clean and had a nice touch everywhere. The view is beautiful with a great location. We will visit this resort and choose this condo again. 5 stars !!***This review was transferred from our old website to the new one effective Jan 1, 2017***

A Week on the Big Island

by Lorrie on 01/04/2017
The condo was much larger than I expected. It was well furnished. Only thing that was needed was taken care of with one quick phone call.

A wonderful condo in a great location at a great price! Felt very much at home here. If you need anything the management is very helpful and quick to respond

by Rodney on 01/04/2017
We had a great vacation. The unit we rented was clean and nice. If we had any issues Sandy and Darryl were right there to address the situation. We would recommend this unit. If we come back to the area we would rent again but would prefer a unit with an ocean view. ***This review was transferred from our old website to the new one effective Jan 1, 2017***

Orchid Inn review

by Anonymous on 01/04/2017
Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a wonderful stay at the Orchid Inn. A specious and open property with a great view of the Kona area and the ocean. The yard was a great bonus, full of flowers and fruit, as well as the vocal chickens. Date of Stay: Dec 2016

A great place for a family vacation..

by Peter on 01/04/2017
We held a family get together with our adult children and friends. This house was a great place to have as home base, especially for family meals and just hanging out. I had wanted to be right on the beach, but came to appreciate the easy access to the highway, plus 10 minute drive to KTA. The large lanai were very nice for morning Pilates, watching the sunset, and watching the fireworks across Kona on New Years Eve. As a Hawaiian style home most of the rooms were naturally cooled and we were entertained by the geckos that wander thru. We really valued that the home had pretty much every thing we wished for (coolers, snorkeling and beach gear, plenty of beach towels, binoculars, books and games, etc). Heck, it even had a massage chair which was great after getting off the long flight from the mainland. The pool was nice for relaxing when we didn't quite feel like going to the beach just yet. We had the opportunity to meet the owners (Kathy and Bob) and they are very nice people. David was our Kona Coast Vacations concierge and hooked us up for snorkeling at Captain Cook, swimming with the dolphins, a luau, and pulled off some magic when we decided at the last minute to go night snorkeling with the manta rays.

Everything was what we were told it would be. We would stay there again.

A very enjoyable stay despite the rainy weather!

by Mowafak on 01/03/2017
This is our third stay in Colony Villas and we enjoyed it just as much. This unit has everything a family or a business traveler needs. It is spacious, beautifully decorated and very well located. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The vacation rental service was superb. We had some initial problems with the Wi-Fi and they immediately came and fixed it. We look forward to yet another enjoyable stay at the Colony in beautiful Waikoloa Beach Resort.

A Perfect Week at Blue Water

by Charyn on 01/03/2017
Our stay was wonderful from beginning to end. You even arranged for gorgeous weather everyday. We were there with only one of our sons and his family but are already talking about coming back with everyone. Date of Stay: 12/26/16 to 1/2/17

Royal Sea Cliff 209

by Kallien on 01/03/2017
This is a beautiful property that is centrally located in Kona with close proximity to all amenities and tours. The best unit in the complex!! Beautiful sunsets right off the lanai, with no obstructions to the view. Overall property and the management staff was courtesy and prompt to take care of any requests. 2 suggestions, unit needs a cookie sheet and garlic press, otherwise the kitchen was fully staffed with everything you need to prepare meals. We would definitely rent this same unit on future trips. Date of Stay: 12/23/16 to 1/1/17

Excellent quiet get away (4.6/5.0)

by David on 01/02/2017
We enjoyed our stay at Waikoloa Village. If your looking for that quiet get away with lots of sun this is the spot. The unit was perfect for my wife and I. Lots of space to unwind as a couple.

waikoloa fairways c217 (4.8/5.0)

by Robert on 01/02/2017
Fantastic place! Clean and well kept. It was a very safe, secure condo and the town of Waikoloa is great. Condo was close to groceries and gas station. It is a 15 min drive to the nearest beach, which is our only minor complaint about the condo. My family and I loved the place and hope to return! Big thanks to owners and management!

Fun in the Sun (4.6/5.0)

by Joy on 01/02/2017
This is a great spot to stay. It is right across from the beach and the condo has everything you need for the beach. The place is dated but very clean and everything works. I would stay there again.

Enjoyed our family reunion (4.2/5.0)

by Betty on 01/02/2017
Nice to be together and enjoy the area. Barbecue accom was good. Security great. Hard to keep quiet with several who have hearing loss. The beach was fun.***This review was transferred from our old website to the new one effective Jan 1, 2017***

Great location but condo is not updated (4.6/5.0)

by Barbara on 01/02/2017
White sands village is across the street from white sands beach- a small beach that is not for swimming. Another beach down the road, say 15 minute walk is good for swimming and snorkeling. The condo unit was clean but needs to be updated! Nice pool and great parking.

Penthouse with a great view and wonderful amenities

by Richard on 01/02/2017
This condo is second to none. Very clean, very well stocked with items you will need while staying. Basically, pack your suitcase and hop on the plane. Go to the grocery store to get food and drinks, and you are ready to have a fabulous time in Kona. Kona Coast vacations and VRBO were great during the booking process and David, the concierge was wonderful in helping us with things to do while in Kona. Overall, a great experience. Date of Stay: 12/23/16 to 12/31/16

Perfect Vacation Home

by Peter on 01/01/2017
This was by far the best travel experience we've had with our kids (2 & 4 years old). The house was perfect inside and out. The beach it sits on is just right for young children, with shallow & protected water full of bright tropical fish. The pool/hot tub/barbecue set-up got a lot of use on our stay. The house is just a couple of minutes from the pier in Kona, so we could easily get to all of our excursions every day. Also, there's lots of dining close by. If you're a fan of architecture, the house itself is a dream home. Every inch of it is trimmed in the highest quality furniture & fixtures. We never once closed the patio doors in the master suite, opting to sleep to the ocean breezes every night and wake up to birds singing. The kitchen is fully stocked with every bit of cookware you could imagine. I could go on. Kudos to the management team for the thoughtfulness in which this property was presented.

Best vacation ever!

by Mary Beth on 01/01/2017
The house and location were exactly as described. You were literally on the beach with access to a lagoon that had a beach front entrance. The pool and hot tub set up was ideal for small children. The swim up bar was great fun for eating snacks and getting drinks! We were in the pool or on the beach all day and all night. We loved it so much that we really didn't do anything else but just be there at the house! Construction next door could be loud at times. This was the only downside of this property.

Great Vacation Location

by Donna on 01/01/2017
A short drive to Kailua-Kona, this was a great location. The house is in a very nice community and was exactly as pictured. The pool is unheated, but was warm enough to swim daily. Our two young granddaughters played everyday in the shallow end. And no worries, the pool was fenced so they were not able to enter it alone. We cooked some of our meals at home and the kitchen was stocked well. had a fantastic vacation and Michelle at Kona Coast Vacations was very helpful, even meeting us at the house to show us around. Thanks Kona Coast Vacations! Thanks Michelle!

Best place to stay in Kona!

by Tanya on 01/01/2017
Our family of 3 has been visiting Kona for the past 10 years and renting various condos with an ocean view. This year we thought we'd rent a house with a pool, even if it wasn't right on the ocean. Best decision we've made! The saltwater pool was a great way to start and end the day, and you can still see the ocean from the beautiful lanai. The house is tastefully decorated and the grounds are so beautiful. We couldn't wait to come home after our daily excursions. We got to eat a few meals at home, and even grilled on the lanai. The kitchen had everything we needed, and if not, Longs Drugs or Safeway was nearby. There was a storm for 2 days when the beaches were closed, but it wasn't a problem because we had the saltwater pool surrounded by beautiful foliage, so we didn't feel like we missed out on water play at all. Out of all the years we've been back, this was the most relaxing vacation on the Big Island we've had because of this beautiful home and we can't wait to stay in it again. It was like we had our own private oasis. Thank you!
