Description

Hale Kona Kai will be undergoing spalling and pool repairs this summer. There will be some level of noise during the hours of 10 am and 3 pm. It is unknown how disruptive the noise will be during work hours. The pool will be closed from approximately July 15 - August 15, 2024. These dates are subject to change. We are offering a special summer rate with the understanding that guests will not have access to the pool during this time and that construction noise may disrupt their stay if they are in the unit during work outs..
This opens up a perfect opportunity for guests wishing to stay right in the heart of Kona at a discounted rate.

"Great location, right above the water. Easy walking to all the restaurants and shops of Kona, while not getting stuck in traffic on the main drag. Close, covered parking location. The condo was nicely furnished and had most everything I needed. They could use soy sauce and some condiments for the fridge. In general it was a relaxing stay and just what I wanted."

"This is an unbelievable location in Kona on the rocky beach. Constant waves breaking close-up to the resort make for mesmerizing entertainment. Hale Kona Kai has a nice-sized pool, a great propane grill, and laundry facilities, and it's a short walk from the Kona bars and restaurants. This unit was well supplied with all the amenities you can think of. This place would have gotten 5 stars except for repeated reviews with complaints about the front door that sticks so bad you can hardly open it and has no deadbolt and the bed which creaks, cracks and groans everytime you move to the point of waking us up. These items need to be fixed and then all your reviews would be 5 stars. Great place!"

"What an amazing location! Right on the beach, we were able to look down to the tide pools and the sea from our lanai and saw turtles come in to feed every day, lovely bonus! The apartment needs some updating, but overall it was clean and comfortable and is just a short walk into the center of Kona. Also loved having a dedicated covered parking space so the car didn't get overly hot!"

"My wife and I love a great view. Our unit at Hale Kona Kai is one of the world’s best we have experienced. It compares with places we have stayed in Santorini, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, LakeTahoe, and Niagra Falls. We also love restaurants. This unit is a short walk (minutes) to everything from oceanfront fine dining to tiki bars with local fresh caught fish tacos. The unit was very comfortable for us. Any needs we had were responded to promptly. The unit provided all the equipment and tools we are used to having in our home kitchen to make gourmet meals to wine time snacks we enjoyed while watching daily glorious sunsets on our balcony watching the waves crash into the lava rocks directly below us. Mahalo, Ted & Betty"

"View was phenomenal! Enjoyed our time in the unit. Things that kept it from being better than good was the front door sticks badly, and the AC still leaves things extremely wet. Yes, I know it's humid, but AC should pull out more of the humidity than this unit does. We did not use the individual units in the living room or bedroom, only the main AC unit."

"Aaaamazing! Impeccable view. Walking distance to town (5-7min). Plenty of beach accessories- boogie boards, chairs, umbrella, cooler. Had everything we need on vacation. The only thing that was an issue is the microwave is too small for the square plates provided @ the rental. The only ones that fit in the microwave are round and a little bigger than a saucer plate. I recommend a larger microwave or provide round plates. Definitely not a game changer. Loved the location. Would stay here again. Our parking spot was right below the condo. Up the stairs & your home. No long walking distances. Easy entry makes coming & going a breeze! Loved it!"

"AMAZING location! Walking distance to Kona Village, spectacular sunsets, waves crashing loudly just below us. Very quiet (except for the apparent National Irish Step Dancing Team above us). Yes, it was dated, but in a quaint way. The property manager was very responsive and helpful. The flaw? No central AC, just two very loud floor units blowing hot air onto the lanai. The BIGGEST charm of the place were those waves, which you could hear even through closed windows, but not if you were running the AC. Fix the AC and we'd be back."

"I loved the location at 201 Hale Kona Kai! It felt like we were floating on water on the lanai! Also, super convenient to be within walking distance to so many great restaurants. The condo offered many amenities (beach chairs, etc.) I only have 2 concerns. First, the the lack of central a/c - which is one of the reasons we specifically booked at Hale Kona Kai. And the water being shut off for a couple hours one morning. If the a/c problem is remedied we will definitely be back. Loved the location!

Kona Beach Properties Response:
So glad you enjoyed your stay Jessica! It really is a wonderful location. The HOA is working hard on a permanent solution for the central AC. We also hope that it will be remedied soon!

"THE GREAT! ocean view from corner glass is fantastic. Fun location near downtown with under building parking is very convenient. THE NOT SO GREAT! The condo is in need of repairs and overall attention! Security issues with the flimsy broken front door. Lacking pride in ownership in this unit. It is painful the write this review, this review could have been 4 or even a 5 if it wasn’t for all the deferred maintenance."

"This was our 5th stay in unit 201. The Lanai's view of the tide pools below and surfers to the south is what makes the unit. Also, it's location to town can't be beat. We spend 90% of our waking time at the condo on the lanai. In the end that's what you are paying for, so if you like eels, turtles and yellow tang, this is your place. A couple things about the unit itself: This was the first time in the unit that there were no beach towels available. While a very small inconvenience, it would have been nice to know before we'd already hit costco and sack n save after a long day of traveling. Otherwise the unit is well stocked. Some minor updates and repairs (i. e. the running toilet) would be nice, considering the price has nearly doubled since 2021. The central air conditioning wasn't working on our last two visits, this impacts all units not just 201. They do provide a portable air conditioner in the bedroom. If you are gone in the afternoon, close the blinds before you leave as it will help keep the unit cool from the late afternoon sun. DO NOT use the tub mat provided (as of 4/2023), it doesn't adhere to the tub's surface and can be dangerously slick. I learned the hard way. Overall we love this unit, the positives outweigh any negatives (except maybe the price:))

Response from Kona Beach Properties:
So happy you enjoyed the condo! the part is in for the central AC and it should be up and running very soon. . We look forward to seeing you again soon!

The toilet should be replaced with a chair height toilet. The front door needs to be replaced. Door knob is loose and door sticks when trying to open it. Drop down sun screens on the lanai are rusted shut and inoperable."

"The location of this unit is perfect. It's not only oceanfront; it's literally ON the ocean. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves. The morning views from the lanai were unbelievable. (If it's sunny, in the afternoon there's too much glare to enjoy the views.) The location is also perfect because, while the unit is on a quiet side street, it's an easy walk to everything in Kailua-Kona--shops, restaurants, historic sites. The unit is also clean, and most items were in working order. We didn't cook in the unit, so we can't comment on how well equipped the kitchen is. We knocked a star off our rating for three reasons. First, the lanai looks completely different. It has a good bit of rust, and the carpet and cushions have considerable rust stains. The furniture is not the nice wood pictured, and the cushions are not outdoor fabric that dries quickly after rain. Second, the living area was photographed with a wide angle lens that made the area look much bigger and lighting that made the unit look brighter than it really is. Note that there is no dining table except on the lanai, which isn't usable when it's raining. Finally, the unit needs updating in a lot of small ways. For example, the bathroom vent is rusted; the plunger for the bathroom sink stopper was missing; some of the wood floor is water-stained, some of the kitchen window jalousie panels are broken and held in place with scotch tape, the doors and their hardware are tired, kitchen cabinet doors don't all close. Access is by a lockbox holding a key rather than a modern keypad. The bathmats have no rubber backing, which we felt made them a slipping hazard, so we didn't use them. We reported the missing plunger and was told they'd look into it and heard nothing more. Some context: We spent the week before at an oceanfront condo in Maui that was about the same age as this building, the same price, but in far better condition and accurately pictured. So, while we enjoyed our stay overall, we were a bit disappointed in this unit."

"201 is a corner unit and the lani is much bigger, great view. "The kitchen is well equipped and the furnishings are good. I had several complaints, one the window in the kitchen was broken along with the shade. The couch (hide a bed) mattress was terrible, the bed had a very difficult time being put back in. therefore, we weren't able to use it. Other than that, I loved the place, hope they get those things fixed I would rent it again"

"The outdoor pictures show why we love this place. There is no spot closer to the ocean. We sleep to the sound of the waves. Being on the corner, we never need the AC. There’s always some sort of breeze. It’s a bit aged and rustic. Nothing fancy. But it’s well stocked and we live on the lanai. Already booked again for next year!"

"This was my second stay in this unit and I hope to have a third sometime. It's an end unit so it has a wrap around lanai with great views. It is meticulously maintained and has state of the art appliances and consumer electronics along with every conceivable cooking utensil any cook would want. This may seem like a small point but the parking stall assigned to the unit is directly beneath the condo and next to the stairs which make it very convenient to access. The onsite rental agents, Taina and Tracy, are helpful and responsive."

"Super easy arrival: Parked in the assigned spot, used passcode to open lockbox, and walked right into the space. You immediately see the corner views of the ocean when you walk in. This place is a great place to stay for those who want to be in walking distance to the Kona strip, who might want a fully stocked kitchen, great views, loaded TV package, and a pool for the "stay in and relax" days, and all the equipment for a day at the beach. We had all that we needed - plenty of linens, towels, beach chairs/umbrella/body boards/flippers/snorkel gear. The king bed is comfortable but note: It's noisy and if your partner moves you'll feel it! (not great for light sleepers). We did laundry, which is located at the end of the hall (bring quarters!). Would be lucky to stay here again - might plan our trip around availability."

"We have stayed in several units at Hale Kona Kai. Unit 201 has a great lanai. We stayed two weeks at the beginning of Dec.. The view was fantastic, unfortunately no turtles this year. Great location to beaches and shops. The kitchen was well stocked and the bed was comfortable. Were a few small things that needed fixing: The kitchen blinds were broken so we had to use a towel to block the sun and the bathroom sink stopper was broken. Also, it would have been nice to have had some way to play music (boombox, attachment for an iPod). We would recommend staying here but felt the price was a little high.

Thank you so much for letting us know about the issues and your recommendations. We appreciate your constructive criticism and will get those items addressed as soon as possible."
