Great view, nice well kept grounds, choose a unit based upon preferences. South facing has good morning sun, north facing shade almost all day. Sunsets from almost every unit. Easy parking, great pool and hot tub, snorkeling out front on very calm days. But, some units are dated, look close at the pictures and ask questions. Our unit had a...

Location on the beach was relaxing and beautiful. The unit 2-304 air conditioner in the master bedroom never cooled the room - added room fans made it less uncomfortable. The unit was infested with tiny ants - when reported, we were told the unit would be treated, but the problem persisted.

Recently stayed at Kona Makai because the unit at another complex I usually stay in wasn't available this trip. We stayed in 4-103 and had a nice time. The unit was in the back with a lovely direct ocean view. It was clean, comfortable, and very quiet...the entire complex was quiet. The building is older but well kept. The wifi...

Kona Makai is a perfect location right on the water. We stayed in 1202 and everything we needed was provided to us. Our view from our lanai was fantastic. The dolphin show every morning and the beautiful sunsets. We will stay here again. Mike the grounds manager kept the landscape very beautiful.

My husband, teenage son & I stayed here for 10 days in January 2014 and found it to be almost perfect for what we needed!! We never spent too much time around the condo area as we wanted to see and do all there was on the Big Island, but it was great having a quiet, comfortable, relaxing place to...

The condo was okay, but certainly not the best I've experienced. Our unit was pretty dated and the mattress definitely could've used replacing. It was extremely hot and, since we were on the ground floor, we could not leave windows open to let it cool off. All in all not bad, since we spent most of our time out, but...

The complex in general is great. Very well looked after and great location. We walked to dinner most nights. Some places within easy walking distance (Jackie Rey's, Island Lava Java), others a slightly longer walk to the end of the main area (Fish Hopper etc.), but a reasonable $10 cab ride. Great sunset views even if your condo is not...

My husband and family stayed in unit 2-301 and loved it. Sitting on the lanai and drinking coffee and watching the dolphins every morning was something we looked forward to. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained also. The unit itself was very comfy and in very good condition. It was nice having the two big rooms and bathrooms and...

We had a wonderful stay here in unit 5-104, with 4 of us sharing this one bedroom one bath. Loved to have breakfast out on the lanai looking at the ocean. Pool is great as is hot tub. This unit is clean and well kept, and very reasonable. Owner is very sensitive to your needs. Would book again!
