easy to book, location was great, well equipped. had everything we needed for our stay and would def recommend and stay again.
This 2 bedroom condo is in Kona, about 2 blocks off the beach. It does not have a view of the ocean, just views of the rooftops of nearby buildings. Not a problem if you're gone most days, like we were. The unit was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. A nice basket of fruit greeted us on our arrival. We enjoyed the decor, which was very detailed and Hawaiian in flavor. The owners' care was evident everywhere. The unit advertised AC, and the master bedroom and livingroom had small working units. Unfortunately, the second bedroom had no AC, and we failed to notice the unit in the livingroom until the end of our second day! The unit faces west, so it can really heat up if you don't put the air on. If you look in the upper right hand corner of the livingroom, you'll find the AC. There is about a hundred feet walk from the assigned parking spot to the entry, and stairs (no elevator) to haul your luggage up, so if this would be a problem for you, you might want to look elsewhere. All in all, a clean, cozy unit with lots of atmosphere.
A very nice appartment, very well equipped with partial ocean view and we watched twice a beautiful sunset from the balcony!
Discovered it was walking distance to shops and beaches along Ali'i Drive stopping by drinking Kona coffee overlooking the ocean. A great place to walk around the neighborhood finding a quaint shop serving coffee and tea - tea-licious. It was close to the freeway which was great so we could travel to the places we visited and were able to get back without going through traffic.
What a blessing it was to have room to spread out! We were a family of 4, then Mother in Law joined us for a few days. Snorkel stuff, boogie boards, beach toys/umbrella/stuff, hats, some food--all inside the condo to use. There's also a washer/dryer which wasn't listed, which would have saved us lots of packing. Location is just perfect, walking distance to everything. There are 2 levels in this rental, we have a split level home, so it wasn't an issue. Both beaches of Kailua-Kona village are a ways away, but the trolley runs right near the rental and will take you just about anywhere you'd want to visit for $2; including grocery store and Target.
We really enjoyed our stay in Kona Mansion 227. Jim, our host, covered all the bases to make sure our check in was easy. We were thrilled with the lovely basket of organic products that greeted us, which included incomparable Kona coffee. This condo is not new, but it is very clean, well maintained, spacious and comfortable. There is air conditioning on both floors, a must in the hot climate. It has a great view of the ocean from the upstairs lanai, which is a lovely place to have morning coffee or an after dinner drink. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, utensils and small appliances. There is a great selection of outdoor gear - a cooler, folding chairs, beach towels. A nice touch is the in suite laundry. to freshen things up during our stay.
Kona Mansion 227 is very close to Kona Town, with its many shops and restaurants - just a couple of minutes by car and a ten minute walk. The complex is well run, quiet, with nicely kept grounds. The property includes a swimming pool and bbq area. All in all this condo is an excellent value, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Kailua Kona.
