Description

AIR CONDITIONING - The Central AC at Hale Kona Kai has been repaired and is fully functional as of 8/4/23.

HALE KONA KAI UNIT 212 SPECIAL FEATURES: This unit has uv film added to the living room window and sliding glass door. The film goes a long way to mitigate the heat stemming from the late afternoon direct sun into the unit.

Hale Kona Kai 212 has a large wraparound lanai that sits at the very edge of the water! This oceanfront property offers unobstructed views of the Kona coastline. Sit on your lanai and watch spinning dolphins year around and humpback breaching just offshore during the winter and spring months. Turtles and eels find plenty of sustenance in the tide pools. Wake up and fall asleep to the calming sound of the ocean.
This unit is beautifully updated. Featured amenities include central AC for those extra warm nights and high speed wifi, a necessity for "working" remotely where Zoom conference calls may be necessary.

Hale Kona Kai is an abslolute oceanfront condominium complex right on the ocean in the heart of Kona. It is a short walk to anything you need; restaurants, entertainment, shopping and beaches. An elevator provides easy access. The property boasts a heated salt water pool and BBQ area. Laundry rooms are available on each floor.

The island has many resort-quality golf courses, the closest one within 5 miles. There are plenty of places to snorkel from shore, or take a snorkeling cruise. Kona offers world-class fishing opportunities. Catch an ono for dinner or a world record Pacific Blue Marlin.

This is a no-smoking, no pet facility.

"We loved our stay at this beautiful condo right on the ocean. The large wrap around lanai has spectacular views of spinner dolphins, turtles, tang, surfers and best of all sunsets. The well stalked condo has everything we needed for our Hawaiian vacation. Beautiful Hawaiian decor and comfortable bed. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. Just a short walk to Kona and restaurants. Kona Beach Properties was a dream to work with. We will return again and again to HKK 212. Everything was wonderful! Absolute 10 stars!"

Tracy with Kona beach properties was just fabulous to deal with. Very professional and quick responses. We rented three units in this complex, one was from casa go. Never again from them.

"This condo is lovely. Amazing views, very comfortable bed, nice Hawaiian decor, even a beautiful cotton Hawaiian quilt. Portable air conditioning in living and bedrooms worked well even on very warm days. The front yard has waves crashing on the lava rocks below, tang feeding, surfers lining up for a wave, cruise ships, interesting life in the tide pools and local fishermen who are very nice and knowledgeable about the fish and tides. So many things to love about this condo. The parking spot is very close. We rarely used the elevator. There are laundry facilities on each floor. Thanks for being our home base for an amazing Anniversary trip to Hawaii. M & A"

"Fabulous location! Right. On. Edge. Of. Ocean. Great for watching whales, turtles, and other sea life. Corner unit fantastic. Pool area never overly crowded. Plenty of pool furniture for everyone. 180 degree view of ocean. Can see outriggers, cruise ships, catamarans, swimmers, and spear fisherman right from lanai. Nice to have a one bedroom versus a studio. A couple of things we did notice is that the tile floors didn’t appear to be fully cleaned (perhaps were dusted rather than mopped) and there was a bit of soap build up on the bathroom counter. We would be highly recommend the property and this unit in particular."

The pictures of the lanai do not do it justice - it's truly amazing as you are right over the water with waves crashing on the rocks under you and views of the ocean in every direction! The rest of the place is as pictured, a little dated but clean. The bed is really comfy!

"The good - the deck and view was gorgeous and one of the best we’ve had on any of our Hawaii trips. We preferred getting our food or making our own and eating out there to going to any restaurant because we just couldn’t tear ourselves away. You could literally see the fish in the water from there. Beautiful sunsets every night. Couldn’t be beat anywhere. The general layout of the rest of the condo worked ok. Small kitchen but ok. Well stocked with supplies. Closet with beach chairs, cooler etc was very appreciated. The bad: Air Conditioning (or rather lack there of). There’s really no excuse for why this isn’t fixed. I see in several reviews people talking about this issue and you would think it would have been resolved by now but nope. Despite signs in the unit talking about A/C - it’s non-functional. There is a portable unit jerry-rigged in the bedroom - but it sort of works (as long as you don’t mind the neighbors having a view into your bedroom from the upstairs unit) 8-O because you can’t close the shutter on one window with the A/C in the window. And yes there is a breeze from the ocean but if you run a little on the hot side (especially at night) - it might not be enough. Even with the Jerry-rigged A/C.:( While the view was great here - I would have to pass on this one and wouldn’t stay here again unless they get that fixed! We ended up with so little sleep."

"We have been staying at this condo several times and loved it. It is the perfect location for us and up until last year and this year was probably the best place we have stayed on the big island. We have come to the big island for the last 25 years. Once again this year the central air conditioner was not working and each bedroom had a portable unit that was loud and did not cool the entire unit. The maintenance of the entire building seems to have gone downhill. The common areas are dirty in a lot of places and there is a lot of repair that needs to be done. The overall appearance just seems rundown. Room prices are what we would expect for a nicer facility. We sadly (because we really like our rooms 212, 213) will be looking for another option next year.:("

"Other than some communication challenges with Vrbo (not property manager) our stay was excellent. The condo has one of the best locations/views on the entire island. Great view of Honl's, one of the best surf spots in Kailua, just a few steps away. And no trees in front blocking our view! It's located a short walking distance to restaurants and shopping in Kailua. The condo comes equipped with all the necessary essentials and then some: Kitchen accessories, abundance of towels (Bath and beach), beach accessories (boogie board, chairs, etc). Air-conditioning in bedroom kept the room comfortable, but the central air-conditioning for the rest of the condo was inoperable. However, two fans and breeze from the lanai kept a nice air-flow through the living area. The lanai was spacious including a table and four chairs, plus a taller bar table for two to enjoy beautiful sunsets. There is also one lounge chair for relaxing with a good book. My wife and I would definitely recommend this rental and we hope to return to it again some day soon."

"My wife and I have spent many vacations in Hawaii, but this was our first stay on the Big Island. Condo 212 was the perfect location and an absolute delight with the wrap-around Lanai. It is a short walk to the restaurants along Ali'i Dr. on the Oneo Bay. We had our evening dinner on the Lanai since it was the best place to be for a great sunset evening. The Honl's beach is only a 1/4-mile to the south, and we watched the surfers from the Lanai. Snorkeling at this location was not for me since the seas were too intense, but I found plenty of other beaches to the north of Kona that had perfect conditions. With Polarized sunglasses, we watched turtles, fish, and a Manta Ray from our Lanai. Dolphins were flipping but too far out to enjoy. The property is not the most up-to-date, but it was relaxing and enjoyable. The kitchen was well equipped and far better than most VRBO kitchens. Snorkeling gear, beach chairs, umbrellas, and a small cooler were in the closet, which was a bonus. This vacation spot is on my return list with a passion."
