Although we never met our host Sandra, we were very pleased with our stay at her unit in Hawaii. She was very accommodating with her communication with us. Everything you need for a wonderful stay including beach items was perfect. The complex is first class and well maintained. The location is excellent to explore most areas on the island and convenient. We highly recommend this condo for anyone considering visiting the Big Island. Thank you Sandra!

Sandra's place was perfect for our stay. Just walking distance to the touristic restaurants and shops. The view from our balcony was beautiful and peaceful every morning, our perfect spot for morning breakfast. She has pretty much everything you need for the beach, towels, chairs, boards, sunscreen, cooler, and more. She has all the kitchen stuff as well and the place is super clean and cozy! We would probably stay here again if we visit the big island!

Sandra's place is absolutely amazing! Neat, extremely well organized, and equipped with everything you'll need to have a great vacay on the Big Island (beach chairs and towels, boogie boards, snorkels, fins, coolers, etc)! The location and the apartment complex are excellent. Shops, restaurants and all Kona attractions are just a few minutes away yet you're in a quiet secluded paradise with a shore access, pool, jacuzzi, gym, barbecue and other amenities that will make you want to stay there forever :) And you can not beat the view from the private lanai! Sandra is a very friendly and hospitable host who will make you feel right at home and help you with everything you might need. We absolutely loved her apartment and we're already planning to be back next year! Best vacation ever! Mahalo for everything!

Wonderful place with a great view to be staring at all day. Sandra was extraordinarily patient and kind with us after me made some pretty substantial mistakes. Parents first time doing airbnb and this was a great place to start them off with.

Sandra'a condo was great. It was clean, very spacious, in really nice grounds with great sea views. There was a nice pool by the sea and the communal BBQ area was a nice touch. I thought the location was a fairly long walk away from Kailua Kona (not that we walked it but it seemed a long way in the car), but there is a regular bus service and its only a short drive away. There is loads to do and see in Kona, so if you are looking for a nice place to stay, I'd highly recommend Sandra's place.

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I fell in love with Hawaii when I came to visit in 1968. I always had a love for Hawaii as my grandmother was born right here on the Big Island back in 1887. My sister also lives in the Islands (Honolulu, Oahu). It took my husband and I until 2003 to move here. Unfortunately he passed away in 2015. So I live down by South Point (the southern most point in the USA) here on the Big Island. Kona was our fun retreat away from the farm chores. We decided to rent our condo out to others to enjoy the Kona life when we were not using it.

Why the Owner Chose Kona Makai:
This complex is right on Ali'i Drive. Walking distance to Kona's famous restaurants, shopping and beaches.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This complex has beautifully maintained topical gardens and direct access to the ocean. In calm surf, access the tide pools right at the complex.
