"Stunning view of ocean sunset and sound of the crashing waves! You can view Yellow Tang and Achilles Tang fish with a splash of black and orange in the reefs below from this balcony. A top notch management team and on-site manager was very helpful. We are so grateful for a best vacation stay at this unit and the location is ideal for driving around the entire island."

"Property was just as pictured, except the views and sounds of the ocean were better! Check-in and parking were easy. Everything we needed (even a beach cooler and snorkel equipment) were provided. The hotel next door is still under construction, but we were mostly there over the weekend, so it didn’t bother us at all."

"This VIEW! Ocean front is an understatement. I was literally in a trance watching and hearing the waves pound against the shoreline for the first 48 hours. Tracy was great with our reservation process. This unit is compact but very accommodating. When we arrived it was scrubbed, sparkling clean and so welcoming. Kona Beach Properties had left several nice preboxed packs for dishes, laundry and toileting. Mahalo nui loa, to all who assisted in every way to make this a great stay- Suz"

"This unit is walking distance to downtown Kona which is great because there is now a charge for parking in town. Although the lanai is large and partially oceanfront, the view from the master bedroom is of the hotel next door which is under construction. It was not loud or a problem, but we chose a unit with a smaller lanai with an ocean view for our next visit."

"We loved our stay at Hale Kona Kai unit 213! The location was fantastic - easy walk into town but just far enough down Ali'i to avoid all of the foot traffic and noise. Central location for daytrips to Hilo, Wailea and Volcano National Park. The complex is small so not a lot of people around (unlike the busy Royal Kona next door). Parking was directly below the unit - super convenient. The unit itself was in great condition and very well outfitted. Kitchen has everything needed including some spices (always hate having to buy spices to use once or twice and then toss). They have an umbrella and two beach chairs, plus boogie board and cooler. Everything needed for a day at the beach or hiking. Comfy king bed, large bedroom with huge window looking out to the lagoon/tidal pool. And the views from the lanai are amazing! We spent a lot of time watching the waves and boats while enjoying drinks and meals. And it's the perfect view of the gorgeous sunsets. No need to go anywhere else to take it all in. Thank you for such a great vacation on the Big Island!"

"You don't get any better ocean view, breeze, and sound of the waves crashing than this. The condo was fully equipped with everything you'd need, but there's just a lot of clutter inside, which made it feel not quite as peaceful for me. That being said, I like very minimal décor so others may think it's perfectly Hawaiian. Tracy was really easy to work with and very accommodating and helpful with my special requests."

Just a note - some people might want to know for safety - the balcony door does not lock because of the air conditioning panel. I felt a little weary about this and the property manager did not respond to the video I sent. Great parking, it has an elevator to get to 2nd floor, well stocked, comfortable couch, bed, etc. Would stay here again!"

"My initial thoughts were that the property was much smaller than the photographs showed. However, after getting settled in, we really enjoyed everything about 213. There was a little noise from next-door, where the Royal Kona resort is being renovated. But this has a little effect on our enjoyment of the lanai. We had some trouble figuring out the television channels at first (!) Location is first rate. Easy walking distance to anything you want along Ali’i Drive. All in all, very enjoyable."

"My husband and I booked a late trip to go enjoy our wedding anniversary & get some dives in. We enjoyed: Location is perfect, within walking distance to all restaurants, shops, etc. View is lovely looking out over the ocean & listening to the waves crash right outside your lanai. The a/c was fixed & worked great. The kitchen had everything needed, was stocked & worked well for us. There were beach chairs, snorkel gear, towels, etc. We didn’t enjoy: Place was small & only surface clean. Things were wiped down, vacuumed, mopped, etc. But there was so much caked on (moist) dust on everything that I spent the first 1/2 day cleaning everything so I could be comfortable. For example: I threw my pillow down after fluffing it & a cloud of clumpy dust blew up everywhere. On further inspection the entire headboard (wood) was covered in that gross wet clumpy dust. I went to plug in my phone charger & the wood on the side tables was the same. I put all the fake plants outside because the wet dust was so thick on them. The lamps, backs of the tv, all the a/c vents & return were thick with dust. I’m not talking about a months worth of dust. I’m talking thick, moist, layers of neglectful dust. Sheets & towels are TIRED & need replacements. Construction is going on at the Royal Kona & our building had a new security system installed during our stay. No naps for us, just constant drilling. Place is outdated & needs love. Please talk to your cleaners to do a more thorough job."

"The place is within walking distance of everything you need. Restaurants, shops, bars and entertainment. The place was very clean and well stocked with dishes, pots and pans to cook with, beach equipment and beach towels. The lani is a wrap around which was nice. There is AC in the central area but we didn't need it, the ceiling fan and the ocean breeze were enough. In the bedroom was a small AC unit which made it very comfortable to sleep in. I would make one suggestion because there is a lagoon and trees right next to the unit there were the sounds of birds and frogs all night long. If you are sensitive to noise, I would suggest bringing earplugs. The AC unit in the bedroom did act as a white noise fan, but I was sensitive to the wildlife sounds. All in all, it was a great unit."

There's new tile flooring throughout including the bathroom shower stall. I'd recommend the unit enthusiastically.

"My husband and I rented unit 213 for six nights / 7 days. We found the unit met our needs. Check-in and out were seamless. Pre-arrival communication was timely, clear, and prompt. The one issue was the wifi was painfully slow and unusable. We used our cell phones as personal hotspots to get online and answer emails. The furnishings of the unit were a bit outdated but well cared for. We spent much time outside on the wraparound balcony listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the lava rocks below. This in and of itself was the reason we look forward to staying here again. The condo is located within walking distance of restaurants and shops. We enjoyed strolling to get coffee each morning. The reason we did not mark our stay as "excellent" was really a function of safety. The building stairs and access to the units are open-air, and there is no barrier to walking the unit hallways nor a gate between the road and the parking garage. On our last evening there, we walked down to see a random person loitering in the garage smoking. This was made more unnerving by the open-air drug scene at the end of the block, which comprised a group of people that became more aggressive as the week went on. While cameras are visible on the property, securing the driveway, garage, and stairs up to the units would be welcomed.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review Annette! We really appreciate your constructive criticism. We understand the wifi is slow. The equipment is slated for an upgrade as soon as it becomes available at Spectrum. We will be sure to pass along your security concerns on to the HOA for consideration.
We look forward to your future visits to Hale Kona Kai.
