This condo lived up to you our expectations The Neighbourhood is very quiet you are close enough to town to enjoy the nightlife. Very accessible to all the highways to get to the main attractions that Hawaii has to offer sandy beaches to the north volcanoes to the South and everything in between.
The AC came in handy on a few evenings when the breezes didn't cooperate.
The pool and the barbecue area is very clean and well maintained and we put it to good use in the two weeks that we stayed at Kona Mansions 227
thank you to Larry for supplying a new coffee grinder so we could enjoy the Kona coffee that was in the gift basket that was at the condo when we arrived. We will definitely stay there again if we come back to the Big Island
A Big Mahalo to Jim
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.
