We stayed in unit 301 three years ago for two weeks and loved it. Wanting to return, we checked online (unit 302 looked pretty good) and booked it for two weeks in February 2013 as 301 was reserved for that time period. We were very disappointed especially after having such a wonderful condo experience in 2009. Not only has the... More

We booked this condo as a bit of a splurge for us and that turned out to be the decision that we made. This unit was well decorated, and in very nice condition. The lanai makes the location, the view and sunsets were amazing. The focus of our stay was in Kona and this unit is very nicely located just... More

This unit served as our honeymoon getaway in 2009. The biggest disappointment was the lack of AC. Apparently at this complex, it is up to the owner to install their own AC. When I had researched it online, I assumed since other units had AC, the all did. WHOOPS. As you search for a place to stay, everyone will tell... More

We stayed in Kona Nalu #302 for seven days in mid-February, 2011. This unit rents for luxury prices but the facilities leave much to be desired. The unit has not been renovated: be prepared for dirty, stained carpets and throw rugs; outdated, chipped, and worn appliances; stained sheets with holes; stained towels that look and feel like they have been...

We enjoyed 6 nights at Kona Nalu #105, the condo was the best part of the trip, the sunsets from the lanai, the sound of crashing waves. The decor was pleasing and everything was satisfactory. There are boogie boards, beach towels for use. The bathroom towels could have been updated, they are very rough, however. There were a couple lightbulbs... More

We have stayed in #301 numerous times. What a wonderful place. The owners are updating it constantly, with new linens and up to date furniture and colors. The locationis fabulous, you couldn't be any closer to the ocean. The whales are great to watch along with the spinner dolphins and sea turtles. The sunsets cannot be beat. I would highly... More

We stayed in unit 105, managed by Abbey Vacation Rentals. We loved the location--right on the ocean!--close enough to hear the surf crashing all night long when we slept with our patio doors open. We ate every meal on the lanai to enjoy the ocean view. We could walk to a nearby small beach (a short but tricky walk over... More

We stayed here in April 2008. All the pics show is the gorgeous view, and a fairly nice living and master. What they don't show is a horribly old and outdated tiny, closed-in kitchen overrun with ants everywhere and god knows what else. Then if you have CHILDREN BEWARE, many unsecured cabinets holding insecticides, toxic paint cans and many other... More

My wife and I recently returned from a week at Kona nalu unit # 302. The property is about 3 miles south of Kailua Kona, so far enough away to be quiet, but very conventient to downtown shopping, etc. The complex sits on a small beach, with a reef right out front where turtles could be observed feeding in the...
