This unit is elegantly yet simply furnished, decorated, and remodeled with modern materials and easy to clean surfaces.

"Excellent location, very close to Kona and many restaurants (1/4 mile). Lovely view of the ocean, sunsets, and rainbows! from the balcony, west facing and only 20’ off the rocky shore. Only 200’ from a surf beach (though reef break makes it a bit treacherous). Comfortable bed with nice linens, ample towels, well stocked kitchen with basic supplies (sugar, pepper, etc), coffee grinder, cooler and ice pack, beach chairs and beach towels, etc. Unfortunately, the lack of central air was a big drawback as the single ac unit in the bedroom was not adequate to cool the other rooms despite max cool setting with closed doors/windows and drawn shades at all times. The living room was sweltering. Bedroom was somewhat cool at night but humid—dehumidifier rapidly switched off as the water reservoir rapidly filled. I believe the ac issue occurred after we rented the unit and probably too late to change our plans, but it would have been a non-starter if we had other options. Hopefully they will fix it soon. If not, perhaps a second ac in the kitchen or living room would help."

"My wife and I are devoted Big Island fans; much of the credit attributable to our love of Hale Kona Kai. We experienced a scare a couple of years ago, but a change/rescue/tremendous upgrade in management 'saved the day'. If closeness to the ocean, never ending upgrades to individual units and public areas, easy stroll to cute little Kona (especially our all-Islands favorite restaurant; Huggo's), plenty of chaise lounges at the ocean front pool, assigned parking and absence of rowdy neighbors appeal to you, we're pretty sure you will be extremely happy with your decision to give Hale Kona Kai a try. Aloha, Dodge and Sharon"

"Condo had the absolute most gorgeous view on 2 sides - got to see sunrise and sunset. unit is dated and smelled a bit musty but the staff was wonderful and responsive and brought a dehumidifier which helped. the property is very close to downtown Kona so easy to walk to meals, drinks and shopping (and more gorgeous sunsets). Our return flight was cancelled and we had to book one 6 hours earlier so we had to high-tail it out of there and couldn't clean up as we should have - but staff was very understanding and nice about it. Would highly recommend staying here."

"Oh, that view. Started every morning of our trip out there with fresh ground Hawaiian coffee. Well-stocked condo, including just about anything you might ever need in a kitchen, and beach chairs and umbrella for beach day. Great communication - I discovered that having all the fans, and the portable A/C, and the hair dryer, running at once was a bad idea, but they came over to flip the circuit breaker in minutes. Loved being able to walk mere minutes down Ali'i Drive for shopping and food. Very happy with our stay!"

I found it amazing that we were right in the main drag yet we only ever heard the peaceful sound of the waves at night. Nice little condo, great location perfect for us!
