Went with this property on the recommendation of Westjet agent. It ws fabulous! The unit itself was a little tired and dated, but the location more than made up for that. Really enjoyed th sandy beach outfront (man made??) and watching the whales, dolphins and turtles from the lanai.

The staff was very friendly from check-in to cleaning folks! We stayed in room #111, and it was perfect! Initially I was concerned because we thought we would be at ground level,... More

What a nice place to be - our own lanai with an ocean view (especially wonderful sunset views), all the comforts of home plus maid service, a regular pool and a tide pool, and super friendly and helpful staff. Location is just about a mile out from all the action so quiet at night but close enough to town to... More

We were lucky enough to spend 3 nights at Aston Kona by the Sea. It's an amazing place and we LOVED every minute of our time there. this property is about 2 miles south of the real center of Kona. So you're far away from the craziness, the noise and the crowds. It's very quiet at night, just the sound... More
