We booked our arrangements thru Costco Travel. There were three of us women vacationing for a co-workers wedding in Kona. We stayed at the R.K.B.T.S the first week of September. We had a great condo on the corner. We had oceanfront, so every morning we would sit our on our lanai and have our Kona Coffee. Two mornings we saw... More

My husband and I stayed at Resortquest Kona by the Sea Aug 1st-Aug 6th 2008. We were married on Oahu and had our honeymoon on the Big Island. This was a great place to spend our honeymoon. It was a spacious 1 bedroom 2 bath condo overlooking the ocean. The kitchen was well equipped to cook some basic meals. This... More

We had a wonderful time in Kona. With all the talk about VOG (volcanic gas) we were a bit concerned. The afternoons tended to be cloudy, but the mornings were clear and sunny. Kona by the Sea was a great choice for our family. It was near the strip in Kona without being right in the middle of it. We... More

The resort is located about 10 minutes out of Kailua, which is far enough to avoid the crowds, especially when the cruise ships are in port, and yet near enough to enjoy the restaurants and little shops. It was calm and restful to look at the broad horizon of the Pacific Ocean and to hear the rythym of the waves... More

We keep returning to Kona By The Sea when we are visiting in Hawaii. This past Jan. was our 5th stay at this property. Have stayed in different units each time and never have been disappointed. Each unit has been very clean, decorated nicely, had comfortable beds, and wonderful ocean views. We love eating dinner on our private lanai while... More

We arrived late in the day on the 27th of February and I was suffering the after eftects of jet-lag and a bout of killer flu.

For ocean views from your lanai, and the sound of pounding waves all day long, this place if for you. If you want a nice, clean, updated condo, DO NOT rent #107 at Kona by the Sea. Let me just say ahead of time that we are not "5 star" people, meaning, we don't expect lavish lodging wherever we travel,... More

We are truly sorry your experience was less enjoyable than you expected. As you noted, all of our condos are individually owned and are therefore not all the same. We regularly work with our owners and advise when they need upgrades or "refreshing" of old and tired furnishings. We have passed on your comments to the owners of unit #107,... More

We were joined by another couple and stayed unit #120 and it was perfect. Ocean view, new furniture,ceiling fans, washer & dryer, and very clean. Lots of room for all. We had the pleasure of watching surfers ride the waves from our veranda while drinking our morning coffee. We used the barbecues located in the pool area and met many... More

Our family of four stayed at Kona by the Sea for six nights. We found the property to be excellent. Our condo was updated, clean, and very comfortable. It had the usual condo amenities and all items were in excellent working condition. The property is waterfront and the views are great. All personnel were very friendly and accommodating. We will...
