My husband and I rented condo #5-207 a at the Kona Makai resort March 15 - April 15, 2016. The unit was very nice and had everything we needed for an extended stay on The Big Island including a full kitchen with a great selection of pots/pans/dishes and a washer & dryer. My husband and I are 73 and 63...

Kona Makai 5-301 We stayed in this unit December 2015 and had a great vacation. The grounds are kept very tidy, and maintenance appears to take place once a week. FYI: the lawnmowers and weed whackers were fired up at 8am so don't plan on sleeping in when they arrive every Wed & Thurs. The pool and hot tub are...

BUYER BEWARE...If you are traveling to this property it IS NOT family/kid friendly. The property mamagement mislead us and there was a lot of incorrect information given to us about the property. There isn't "high speed internet", the pool is only open until 8pm for children and from 8pm-9pm for adults only. The complex quiet hours start at 9pm and...

We stayed the week before Xmas week 2015. The complex is private, secure and hidden away (but easy to find from the directions provided). There is access directly onto the water from , swimming pool, recycling ping pong and bbqs. The apartment itself was clean and tidy with a kitchen full of all the things you need. It is a...

This was our fourth stay at Kona Makai. It is always beautiful and so well kept. Love the gorgeous grounds. We stay in the end units with wrap around balconies. You can't beat the views. I can sit on the lanai all day and never tire of it. Watching all the dolphins swim by. The fishing tournaments get started. Cruise...

I have been staying here for 3 months and have been thoroughly enjoying myself. The complex is right on the ocean (though like many beaches on the island contain lava rock) and has a pool & hot tub. The grounds are impeccable! They really take care of this place. The property's manager Bud is super nice as well. If you're...

I'll be short and to the point. Great WiFi everywhere, easy access to the highway, beautiful and clean grounds, nice beach but not swimmable a nice lookout where you can see dolphins, very close to the airport.

Although I would agree that some properties were dated, the overall convenience and location made this an agreeable destination. Best of all, tremendous snorkeling opportunities are at the tip of the property. The other guests inherited the laid back and friendly attitude of the Islands. It's best to use the upper floors; our ground floor unit lacked an ocean view....

Great grounds. Spacious enough for four people. Super view. Very helpful staff. The 2 decks were great for meals and relaxing. We cooked out several nights at the grills and it was fun to talk to others doing the same. The second bedroom can be loud when the windows are open because it is next to the driveway and the...

What do you want in a housing unit in Kona? An ocean view and TWO lanais. Yeah, I thought so. The accommodations were beautiful and the proprietor provided all of the resources needed for a comfortable week in my home away from home. I could walk down to all of the shops on Ali'i Drive, but I wasn't in the...
