Kona Coast Resort Vacation
Such a beautiful condo, exactly as website and photos portray it. The condo was well supplied, very clean, lots of room and the beds were very comfortable. We started our visit with a welcome gift basket filled with local delights, it was a nice touch.... more The grounds of the resort were very well maintained and beautiful. Reserved parking only steps away from the unit. The vertical blinds need to be replaced, the sun has warped them and as a result there is no privacy. At night you are exposed, even in the bedrooms so you will want to be careful as you prepare for the night. Be sure you review all the rules for the unit and the property. We invited our daughter, who lives on the Island, and her precious family to dine with us on several evenings. Since the condo is monitored with a camera there was some concern we may have been using the condo for overnight guest other then those we registered , which was not the case. We were informed that the rules do not allow for us as a guest to invite our guest to join us for anything other than a very brief pick up or drop off. This may only be a concern if you have family living in Kona or you have others traveling with you on your vacation that you may want to invite over for dinner. Our overall review of the condo is very favorable. It is, indeed, a wonderful condo and a great place to enjoy the Island. less

Aloha and Mahalo for sharing your thoughts with us and others here! We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and time with your extended family members. Yes, we have received some estimates on replacing our not so old window coverings as the sun & salt air is brutal on them. We will certainly share your constructive insights with Resort HOA’s to see about a solution to additional guests visits such as checking in at front desk with id /names that are provided. Your original booking of 2 thru off a red flag when 7 guests kept showing up on the camera. Mahalo!
This is a wonderful property that is well-equipped, beautifully furnished and has outstanding ocean views. We have been coming here for years and appreciate the attention to detail that the owners have when setting up this condo for guest stays. The beds are especially comfortable!!!... more I cannot think of anything I would change in this unit. We especially enjoy sunsets on the lanai followed by quiet dinners as dusk turns to night. In addition to the amazing condo, the grounds of the resort are well-kept and have lovely walking paths for strolls after dinner. The two pools give you a choice of a family/party atmosphere with the restaurant and bar at the main pool, or a spa-like experience at the smaller Quiet pool. It is an easy walk to shopping and Sam Choys nearby and you can also walk to the launching point for boat tours to Captain Cook Monument as well as the snorkel beach at Kahalu'u. It is also an easy drive into Kona Village so the location is fantastic! My only regret after a stay here is that I have to leave!!!! less

AWESOME CONDO WITH EXTRAORDINARY VIEWS!!!
We highly recommend this condominium rental for your next getaway🌴 The unit was clean, spacious, comfortable and relaxing. It was also equipped with every possible item needed to make guests feel like home (i.e. BBQ on spacious private lanai, games, books, spices, pots/pans, dishes, utensils,... more etc.). We were also greeted with an abundant basket of local fruit, coffee & butter! Bonuses included numerous amenities on the property, such as multiple pools & jacuzzi's, numerous areas designated for smoking & BBQ, mini playgrounds for young children, shuffleboard area, tennis courts & volleyball site🙂 This resort is also within walking distance (across the street) from food shopping, drug stores, restaurants & bars which was extremely convenient. We cant wait to return❤ less

Very nice accommodations
This was very nice and clean place to stay. Close to grocery store and ocean shore:)

Great unit at the Kona Coast Resort
2 bedroom unit on the second floor with easy access. Unit has many modern updates and a lovely place to stay.
— Dennis, Stayed 05/14/2019
We often stay at Kona Coast. This was our first experience in the "older" section" and we cant wait to do it again. First, the unit was large, comfortable and had absolutely everything we needed including beach towels that were amazing in size!! This kitchen... more was fully stocked and the beds were comfortable. And on top of everything, the view from the balcony (while we had a pre-dinner drink) was just stunning! I will absolutely rent here again and have recommended this unit to people who will be coming to the big Island next year! If I were to make one recommendation it would be that the owners consider replacing the vertical blinds which have been exposed to a lot of sun with curtains that have a drapery pull to keep out the am sun in the master bedroom. The sun was brighter than our rental the week before that had room darkening window treatments. There was only a slight disruption in sleep - not anything that would deter us from renting again though!! less
— Tracy, Stayed 04/16/2019
Great for families
The condo was clean and well equipped. The welcome fruit and goodies basket was nice to arrive to after the long flight. I was, however, disappointed that there was no beach access from the condo (whatsoever) and though you can see the ocean from the... more room as you see in the photos, the view is really of the road. The beds were very comfy as was the rest of the furniture. The jet tub was not functioning (a sign was posted next to it) which I personally missed, the rest of the family didn't mind. The management company was very helpful and responsive. They helped us on a couple of occasions promptly and politely. It was all in all a good stay. less
— connie, Stayed 04/08/2019
Absolutely perfect in every respect except too close to entry. Traffic noise was a problem. The condo itself, and all it's amenities was really great.
— Colleen Schultz, Stayed 02/20/2019
Perfect Place for our Vacation
We loved our time at this condo and will definitely be back in the future. The condo is quite spacious and was very clean and well-kept. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook, including a very nice grill. We loved being able... more to cook most of our meals and enjoy them out on the lanai with the view of the water. The bed was very comfortable, which is important to me. The owners have really thought of everything you could possibly need or want including: beach chairs, coolers, boogie boards, pool floats, etc. An extra bonus is you get to use all of the facilities of the resort. We really enjoyed the pool and having a bar/restaurant onsite was great. The resort is located just across the street from a variety of shops, restaurants and a grocery store. And one of the best snorkeling beaches is just a minute or two down the road. The owners are also very nice and quick to respond to any questions. This is definitely a great place to rent in the area. less
— Jessica, Stayed 02/04/2019
We stayed here with our 2 college age kids and the place was perfect! It’s very roomy and the lanai is huge! It’s walking distance to a few beaches and across the street from a shopping area with restaurants. 5-10 minute drive to all the... more restaurants and bars in Kona. There’s an adult pool if you want it quiet and another fun pool with a bar. Would stay again! less
— Ann, Stayed 01/08/2019
Great condo; awesome view!
Great condo with an absolutely awesome view. Extremely comfortable for four people. Loved the kitchen and laundry. Great flower leis for the plastic cocktail glasses. Loved all the spices, knives and cutting boards. Made the prep for food a cinch. Great fun! Great mattresses for... more sleeping. Great a/c when needed. We rent the condo 1-2x each year, and will continue to enjoy it. Awesome welcome basket each visit. less

Very relaxing clean quiet at home atmosphere only the jacuzzi was not working.
— Cade, Stayed 08/12/2018
Great Base Location 7/11/2018
Kona Coast Resort Condo 10-201 was an excellent choice for a base from which to explore the island. It's about an hour from both the north and south points. There are several swimming locations within a short distance although sandy beaches around Kona are small... more and can get crowded. There is a shopping center across the street which was convenient. The condo was clean and well equipped. The only real complaint was there were only 2 wash cloths per bath. My wife and I each use 2 per day so we had to improvise. The resort staff was very helpful and friendly. Final note - the resort has no access to the ocean. less
— Jim, Stayed 07/23/2018
This was a great place. Larger and more "homey" than expected. There wasn't anything that we needed (other than food) that wasn't already there. Very clean, very nice bathrooms/showers, comfortable beds. We would definitely stay in this condo again. We had stayed at Kona Coast... more in the past, but this condo was much nicer. less
— Gregory, Stayed 07/11/2018
Home away form home
Rented this unit for only 2 night. Wished I was staying longer! Very clean! Lot's of board games for the family if the weather is bad. There are even some movies! TVs are UHD, very nice. The complex itself is nice and the people at... more the main desk are very nice. Only had to go there to get a parking pass, but they rented me like I was a regular guest of the complex and not renting a privately owned unit. Lot's to do in the complex, restaurant on site was very convenient, even though there is a mall right across the street from the complex entrance. If I'm ever back in the area, this will be my first choice to stay! Mahalo! less
— Gregory, Stayed 03/28/2018
Amazing location and apartment
This place was so easy to stay in. We were very comfortable. The facilities of the resort were great to enjoy as well and you are in walking distance to the beach. Beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you needed to make... more a great and healthy meal! Wonderful to have a full laundry facility in the apartment as well. My only feedback would be there needs to be more channels for children on the cable package e.g. nick jnr as channels available were for older children. less
— Louise, Stayed 03/23/2018
Happy Hawaii Stay
This was a spacious, very comfortable and welcoming apartment for a relaxing island break. Everything was very clean and well organised and we appreciated the mid rental extra clean the owner organised. Catering for ourselves was made easy with the well equipped kitchen and the... more very efficient barbecue grill on the lanai. One suggestion for tea drinking guests would be to provide a tea pot as we had to buy one while there. People around the resort were also very friendly and helpful when we had questions. The pools were very accessible. Borrowing equipment to play tennis and shuffleboard presented no problems and we thoroughly enjoyed the botanical walks. It would however, be good to have a little information about how to access the shoreline paths bordering the resort. We didn't fully work out what we could do and the owner's help about what is possible would be good. less
— Alan and Fiona, Stayed 03/15/2018
Great view, great condo!
All the comforts of home. Very well equipped condo with a great view and location. We had a great time and didn't want to leave!
— nancy, Stayed 03/10/2018
My partner and I shared this place with some friends. Beautiful home and wonderful location. We loved every part of it. We will absolutely stay here again next time we're on the big island. Thank you!
— Ali, Stayed 02/21/2018
My favorite condo
We've been coming to Kona for several years now, with many good resort and hotel experiences... but this condo blew me away! It had everything and then some: - super comfortable beds - room-by-room climate control (a member of our party who is sensitive to... more warm temperatures was able to sleep in cool comfort) - gorgeous renovated bathrooms - fully-stocked, well-organized kitchen - lanai view of ocean sunset - huge living space - close to quiet pool - close to jogging path - close to grocery store and more Not to mention... - a surprise gift basket of local fruit, jam, and coffee! What a treat! Another thing we appreciated a great deal was that this condo allowed guests to leave behind small consumables--coffee, sunblock, bug spray, laundry detergent. This meant not only did we not have to spend the first day shopping for every little thing we might need--or get caught off guard by something we forgot--but also we were able to avoid wasting what we had left over. That's the kind of detail that makes time off feel like a vacation... and a resort feel like a home. Thank you, Bill and Lesley! It was an absolute delight. I hope we can come back soon. less
— Victoria, Stayed 10/19/2017
Condo on the big island
Very nice place, everything as advertised. Lots of room, nice view. Condo has everything you need for a stay on the big Island.
— Knut, Stayed 10/12/2017
Kona gem !
Condo was beautiful , comfortable and very well appointed . Appreciated the cleanliness . Other than a shower draining slowly we had absolutely no issues . Even though we came prepared, to keep a five star rating I would provide a little coffee , bar... more of soap and little bottle of shampoo and conditioner just to get guests by that first day. Thank you for letting us share in a piece of your heaven on earth . less
— DAVID, Stayed 09/17/2017
Aloha David, We’re glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at our condo. Thank you for letting us know the drain is slowing down and we can get it fixed. Sorry that you didn’t find the Body wash and other supplies in the bathrooms as they were kept in the cabinet. Sorry about the coffee as we usually have some in the condo with the filters. We hope that you will come stay with us again. Aloha and Mahalo, Lesley
Anything you could want, and MORE!
I cannot express how wonderful this condo truly is.... Anything you could possibly need is in this place! Rooms are spacious, bathrooms are spectacular! As far as the kitchen goes- every utensil, dish or serving platter you could imagine is stocked! We even left a... more couple bottles of champagne in the refrigerator to welcome the next guests! :) When we arrived, it was late- there was no messy check-in- just keyed in the code to the lockbox and WHALAH!! in we went! Transaction was smooth and Lesley was responsive to any question or concern that we had! Next time we are in Kona- this will be the place we stay. Thank you so much for opening your home to us! less
— AMBER, Stayed 09/05/2017
Beautiful stay in Kona
A wonderful stay in this updated condo at the Kona Coast Resort. A very pleasant and comfortable vacation in the Keauhou area.
— Dennis, Stayed 04/25/2017
Fortnight's Holiday in Kona during Ironman week.
This Condo was everything it says on the tin! It doesn’t need me to tell people how good it is, the pictures are accurate but even they don’t do it full justice. The rooms are very spacious and could (with a sofabed) quite easily accommodate... more more than the 4 person maximum. What the pictures don’t show are how well the cupboards are stocked with every piece of equipment you’d ever need. From cool-boxes, to snorkelling gear to deep fat fryer’s to deck chairs. The complex is also of a very high standard. in fact we got a polite letter through the door on day 1 for having our towel draped over the Lanai(and quite rightly so). Do consider sleeping arrangements though if you’re a party of 4 that aren’t that close. Or, If like my wife and I, you take your teenage Son and elderly mother. 2 x double beds are obviously not suitable and with no sofa bed it meant we had to purchase an airbed and Hawaii isn’t cheap. We thoroughly enjoyed our fortnight here during Ironman week and deliberately chose a place that would see us living in comfort. It didn't disappoint. We would recommend to all of our friends and family. Like us, my Mother had the holiday of a lifetime. Thank you, Steve less

Love the layout of the condo! Emaculate & well equipped with a perfect location. Mahalo nui Leslie!! Bob & Karen
— Robert, Stayed 07/07/2016
Gorgeous view, spacious and lovely space!
The condo was absolutely perfect for my birthday HI trip; my husband and I stayed for 9 days and were NOT ready to leave! The indoor space is huge, and comfortably decorated in the classic Hawaiian-getaway style. The kitchen has everything you need cookery-wise, plus... more some edible basics like olive oil and mustard. There was a Saturday Farmers market at the little shopping center up the road, and we got to buy local organic produce and coffee! We even bought a Thai soup kit from a nice married couple at the market. It came complete with lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves! There's also a cute coffee shop in the same center (great iced tea!), plus a supermarket, drug store and a movie theater in case of a rainy day. Oh I haven't said anything about the view! The ocean view from the condo is spectacular; both the living room and master bedroom open onto the covered lanai that looks straight at the Pacific, with panoramic blue in both directions. There's a BBQ, a big round table with cushy chairs, and a chaise for relaxing after a long day of snorkeling. In the cove that's 2 minutes down the road, Kahaluu I think it was called, we saw turtles and gorgeous fish galore! There were also people surfing on the north side of the cove, the waves looked decent, maybe 6-8ft most days. The little restaurant in the complex is yummy too; we had sunset appetizers there a few times and the food was casual, delicious, and served with a smile. They even had live music! In conclusion, I will simply say that we will be back, and as soon as possible. Mahalo to our gracious hosts for sharing their slice of paradise! less

Rest, Relax, Return
We have stayed at Kona Coast Resort for over twenty years and always rent a second week there or elswhere on the island. On a number of occassions we have rented from a private owner at the resort and have always been satisfied but have... more never returned to that same place again. This year (2016) we booked our return visit to this unit for 2017 before we checked out. It is all you could ask for in a vacation rental and then some. Comfortable, well decorated, FULLY furnished kitchen, beds you do not want to get out of, and a very nice view from an expansive lanai. Did I mention the beds? The owner responds almost immediately should you have a question or concern and the location is a perfect easyin/out within the resort. A two minute walk to the nearest pool makes it nice if you forgot your sunscreen. Please do not hesitate in booking this condo if it is available. less
— GAIL, Stayed 01/23/2016
This unit was unbelievably spacious and comfortable with views from every room. Because it is an end unit a wall of windows along the side afforded a view out the other direction as well. I have never seen a kitchen that was as well stocked... more as this one with casserole dishes, crock pots, bowls and serving trays. We had a party and our friends were very appreciative of the size of the condo and the ample seating on the patio. Everything was clean and well decorated. Of course we will return. Were loved every minute of it and spent a lot of time sitting at the high table looking at the sunsets and sipping a cocktail. Thank you to Leslie and her husband. less
— Sara, Stayed 01/11/2016
The condo was perfect for our family of four. It was a quick drive to the beach and walking distance to grocery and restaurants. We wished we could have stayed longer!
— David , Stayed 11/28/2015
A beautifully appointed, cozy, comfortable dwelling with a great little restaurant/bar/pool---so welcoming and friendly. The lanai is a large, beautifully furnished area with table, bar, and gas BBQ, with an expansive side to side full ocean view. WHAT A TREAT. We simply LOVE the Kona... more Coast Resort, this being our 10th time to visit with friends and family. This unit is particularly charming, with gorgeous bathroom counters and curved glass shower enclosures. We'll be BACK! Ethel and Ray, Mary and Ken less
— raymond , Stayed 08/19/2015
Loved this place
The room was fantastic. Bathrooms were large. Beds were comfortable. It was very clean. You can't beat the price. Having a kitchen kept the cost down and the grills on site were clean.
— Gina103, Stayed 07/02/2015
Great place to stay and nicely furnished with all sorts of extras
kitchen was well stocked with every pot and pan needed including utensils. Comfy beds, the unit was very nicely furnished and clean. The owners have rally gone the extra step making it a beautiful unit. Also lots of beach items like chairs & umbrellas in... more a bin on the deck, coolers, snorkel equipment beach towels everything was there at the unit. They even had condiments in the frig. I would definitely stay there again less
— Carol D, Stayed 03/29/2015
Can't imagine anything better than this!
My husband and I have stayed here several times and it is hard to believe it continues to get even better. You never have to leave the condo to see the spectacular sunsets because the lanai has the perfect view. The unit itself is beautifully... more furnished and fully equipped. Everything you need whether you are dining in, entertaining guests or heading to the beach for a day of snorkeling. This year the unit had a new washer and dryer (super-efficient), new bed mattresses (love the pillow tops!), new flat screen TV, new shelf unit filled with books) and a new Weber bar-b-que (my husband took over all responsibilities for cooking and was down-right possessive about it). The bedding, bath towels and beach towels are all top quality and match the standard of the unit itself. The resort has two lovely pools, two small gyms, and walking paths around the grounds. It is conveniently located close to a grocery store (walking distance), an easy walk to one of the best snorkeling sites on the island and is a short scenic drive into Kailua Kona town. It just doesn't get any better than this in my book! less
— CRZYCNK, Stayed 12/14/2014
Great condo in a great location
Visited Kona to compete in Ironman, and loved the condo at Kona Coast. The condo location was super convenient right on Alii drive across from a large supermarket. The condo was very spacious with great views. Although there wasn't air conditioning, there were many large... more windows that could be opened and the breeze cooled the condo down quickly. less
— JaredTri, Stayed 10/21/2014
Wonderful place with great location
We really enjoyed our stay... very spacious and comfortable/updated condo. Enjoyed the sunsets every evening and the breeze that kept us cool for the whole month we stayed here. Lesley is sincerely helpful and caring. Convenient location.. near to south end of Kona, 10 min,... more from downtown Kona.. and 30-40 min from Kohala Coast. Thank you Lesley for maintaining a very nice home away from home! less
— Ruth092014, Stayed 09/15/2014
Wish I lived here!
This unit was definitely a home away from home. It was extremely clean and well stocked with basics, beach equipment, plenty of linens. The view was beautiful, good location. I only wished we had more than just two nights, so we could have enjoyed the... more beautiful patio and barbeque! less

Nice condo, disappointing beach
Very nice condo for those who don't want or need beach access. Very roomy, all amenities ( except beach towels) . The beach nearby is not nice, hard to get to. Town in 10 minute drive. Beaches are about a half hour either direction. Close... more to groceries. Nice owner and front desk person. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 03/29/2014
Aloha K. H., Thank you for sharing your experience with us and sorry you didn’t locate our beautiful blue large beach towels. We wish you had asked so we could have assisted you to their location in Condo. The beach that can be found about ¼ of mile is Turtle Beach (Kahalu'u Beach Park) where you can see all sorts of colorful local fish and the protected green turtles when snorkeling the bay. The Big Island has many types of beaches (Black, Green and white sand) where one can experience all the beauty the Big Island has to offer. We’re glad that you found the ones you enjoyed the most. Mahalo, Lesley, owner condo 10-201
Leslie, I am remissed in telling you how much it meant to my sister and me that we had such wonderful accommodations in which to relax and enjoy tender moments. Your condo is beautiful, comfortable, and inviting. Thank you for your generosity in sharing this... more space with us. All my best, Darcia less

We have stayed in this Condo several times and have always found it very nice. The decor and amenities in the Condo are superior. The location which is near the shopping Mall, beach, Kona property facilities are very convenient and pleasant.
— Moffat Family, Stayed 11/30/2013
Spacious Island feel with breezy comforts
This 2 BR unit has lovely updated bathrooms and many elements that make you feel settled-in. One downside is it is located very near the resort entrance which results in truck and car noise often audible inside the unit (which has no air conditioning. A... more well-stocked kitchen helps with food prep. less

Spacious and comfortable apartment.
This condominium was very spacious, clean and comfortable with a lovely sea view, lanai, well equipped kitchen including condiments, 2 bathrooms and just about everything you can think of.
— Laureen, Stayed 08/31/2013
It was a beautiful amazing place to stay.
First impression are everything. What a beautiful condo to walk into. To look straight out to the ocean is amazing. It's decorated beautifully and has all the amenities you would need. They add a nice personal touch by having a gift basket with all kinds... more of local goodies and a note welcoming you to their home. We loved the fact that they have boogy boards and snorkel gear and a variety of things to use during your stay. We loved everything about this condo and are already planning our next visit. less
— Rick and Annette, Stayed 08/26/2013
lovely ocean view
The condo was well furnished and has a lovely ocean view. There are amenities there such as beach towels, coolers and other beach gear to use. The condo owner was available to handle questions and even called during our stay to check how things were... more going. I recommend staying here and plan on staying again next year. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 08/06/2013
Felt like home!
This condo was spacious, homey, and exceedingly comfortable. We took advantage of the BBQ on the lanai several evenings, and truly appreciated the beach equipment (umbrella and tatami mats). We have stayed at the Kona Coast resort many times in different units, but would not... more hesitate to book this condo again. The location within the resort was perfect for us - near to the two other condos housing the rest of our thirteen family members. It was lovely! less
— The Collins Clan, Stayed 07/13/2013
Another Great Stay at Condo 10-201
We have stayed in this condo several times since 2008 and have enjoyed every stay. The condo is exceptionally clean, well maintained and spacious. The kitchen is well stocked. There is a storage box on the lanai well stocked with beach items, such as folding... more chairs, boogie boards, etc. The view from the lanai is fabulous and includes views of the ocean, the best views in Kona of the sunsets, the resort and the golf course. We enjoy the location of the condo within the Resort. It is near the entrance to the Resort but has a very private feel in front and a great view of the Resort. less
— Jim, Stayed 06/17/2013
Beautiful condo-great access
Our stay was perfect! Great access, beautiful views, nice amenities, prompt service. More appliances than you might have at home! Thanks, Lesley, for being a gracious host.
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 04/14/2013
Well maintained and wonderful setting
We were return customers and were just as happy the second time as the first. The condo was well maintained and had a well equipped kitchen, and we enjoyed the personal touch of the magnificent fruit basket that was left for our arrival. Details were... more well communicated, and we love this location as it has a beautiful view of the ocean, is within easy walking distance of a great snorkeling beach, and there is access to a pool. It has a great deck where we enjoyed many of our meals. Other benefits were a farmers market across the road that is open on Saturday's, and the cinema nearby. We had a fantastic week! less

Hawaii at it most charming!
First of all working with Lesley made making my arrangements a breeze. We had some issues with my email, but all I had to do was email or call Lesley and the issues were taken care of immediately. The cost of renting this condo was... more actually less than it would have been to rent two hotel rooms so the economics of it was a no brainer. We walked into 10-201 and felt like we were in Hawaii at it's most charming! The decor was so authentic, and not overdone. My husband and I were traveling with my brother and his wife, whom, had never been to Hawaii before, they were so blown away by the home, and that is exactly how it felt like we were home, not just checking into some hotel room. We did not do any cooking as we were on the go the entire time, but had we wanted too, we would have had everything we needed, right down to salt and pepper. The bedrooms and bathrooms were so well appointed and spacious! Watching the sunset on the lanai was breathtaking! The location was very convenient, and parking was so accessible. I would not hesitate to stay here again! less
— Melissa, Stayed 02/24/2013
Relaxing, spacious, and loved being able to eat out on the lanai
Well-stocked. Enjoyed going through the shelves to see what goodies were available! Very close to a mall
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 02/18/2013
The condo was great It had everything you could possibly need on your trip, from boogie boards; everything for the beach and spices for cooking. We even found a sewing needle to take the sea urchin out of my finger.We could watch the amazing sunsets... more from the lanai.And the condo was beautiful decorated and up to date. We would like to thank the owners for a wonderful fruit basket that was there on our arrival. We ate every last thing. It was delious. It was easy to find from your directions and was close to alot of the beaches and restaurants.They also gave alot of info about the things to do or see in Hawaii in a binder in one of the drawers.The condo has no air but there is no need because it has ceiling fans and it cools off at night. The only downfall and this is beyond the control of the owners is that I left the bedroom lanai doors and a big noisy truck barrelled down the street. But all in all it was a great condo. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 02/14/2013
Huge Condo - Great Location
My husband and I stayed here for 5 days with another couple. Condo was super spacious with a large lanai. Very comfortable. Kitchen was well supplied. It was close to the "quiet pool". A short walk down to the resort restaurant and bar. And only... more a couple blocks to the shopping center where we bought all our groceries. Tvs were a bit outdated and small, but we didn't come to Hawaii to watch TV. less
— Chris & Dick, Stayed 02/08/2013
Wonderful home away from home!
I totally agree with the previous review by Helen and Mark of Chicago. This is a lovely, well maintained, and very spacious condo with amenities galore. The resort itself is very nice and well groomed. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

It doesn't get any better than this!
This is the second time we have stayed here. We holiday in Hawaii very regularly and have stayed in many places but this Condo is our favorite for a number of reasons: 1. Condo is on virtually the same level as the car park so... more no need to drag luggage and groceries up and down stairs. 2. It is an end unit so has windows right down the south side giving extraordinarily good light. 3. Beautifully furnished. Walk through the front door and we feel at home. 4. Ocean view so you can watch the sun go down and look for that ever elusive green flash. 5. Sea Breeze that constantly flows through the unit with a front door that has a meshed security screen to take advantage of the airflow. 6. Great WiFi that is easy to connect to and has good download speed. We are almost hesistant to let you know how great this condo is becasue we don't want you to book it when we want to be there! Little things mean a lot like having steak knives in the cutlery draw, a blender to make Margaritas and then for the alpha Male, a 5 burner BBQ on the lanai. Some people complain about the noise but the grounds are beautifully maintained and that means the occasional mower or leaf blower. Just head to one of the two pools and voila - no noise! The layout of this Condo is simply superb. Kitchen overlooks the living room which overlooks the lanai which overlooks the fabulous view of the immaculate grounds and the ocean. Sit on the lanai and watch the sun go down sipping on a Margarita. Then throw some steaks on the Barbecue and ask yourself if it gets any better than this. It doesn't! less

Comfortable Condo - excellent location
We enjoyed our stay at the Condo and appreciated the well-stocked kitchen/laundry. It is very convenient to shopping, beach, activities, etc.

Very comfortable, clean, quiet condo with a good view.
Condo 10-201 at the Kona Coast Resort is a very well maintained private condo. We received excellent courteous service from the owner. The condo felt like a home from the moment we arrived, beautifully furnished, comfortable beds. The kitchen was fully equipped and spotlessly clean.... more The location of this unit is excellent, right by the resort entrance but still very quiet. The view from the lanai is lovely. We didn't use the resort amenities, too busy enjoying the Big Island adventures. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 10-201 and would stay here again in the future. Thank you Lesley! less

Lovely time in Hawaii.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The weather was perfect, and the resort is very nice. The condo has been updated nicely. We have stayed at 2 other condos in this complex before. Other than the kitchen, this condo is fully updated and modern. The... more bathrooms are great, the beds are comfortable, the living room and lanai are relaxing. Electronics are good. The kitchen could use a little updating - (counter is old and grout is missing in spots allowing for bacteria: knives and cutlery could use updating). It was great to have laundry and internet, and all the beach items - the kids loved it. The condo itself - we were very happy. I will say the noise from the cars, many trucks and landscaping crew was louder than any other condo I have stayed at. We still enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you. less

We would definitely use this condo again! It was beautiful and well kept. Has all the amenities needed for your stay. Loved the shower!!
— Ken & Kelli, Stayed 02/16/2012
The condo was everything we expected and more. The bathroom updates had a spa like feeling. All the rooms were large and we loved the extra large lanai. We were able to whale watch from the deck and ate every meal outside. The kitchen was... more supplied with everything we needed right down to the cooler we used almost everyday. The kitchen could use an update but still met our needs. We stayed for 2 weeks in this condo with another couple. We talked to some friends who were in the same complex as us but one floor down. He rated their condo 2/10 and ours 9/10. less

Great time with the family with an awesome view!
This is a fantastic condo with an equally remarkable view. Our family of five had plenty of room. This location is very near shopping and good food. Both in walking distance. With a little drive you have a host of activities to choose from.

Outstanding, except for renovation taking place upstairs.
The condo was very clean, well decorated and had many amenities. The wi-fi was outstanding. The furniture was very comfortable. The view from the lani was outstanding. The kitchen was well furnished with many items. The appliances all worked well. The library was well-stocked. The... more only negative thing during the time we were there, was the noise from the construction workers upstairs. The noise continued for four days and was extremely bad the last two days.

Aloha William and Lorraine, We look forward to your return trip to the Big Island and our condo so that you can completely enjoy your next stay. Mahalo for your understanding of the unforeseen delay the owners above incurred as they were to have completed in October. As with most renovations – it takes longer and usually more funds than one plans on. We hope the owners above have now completed their renovations as they are due to move in at the end of November. Aloha and Mahalo, Lesley Blanco
Beautiful condo, has everything you need for a perfect vacation!
— D Johnson, Stayed 08/18/2011
A great condo in a great location
We have stayed in this condo three times. We love watching the sunsets each night from our lanai. The condo is spacious and has everything you could think of. Including beach towels, folding chairs for the beach, beach mats and more. The condo is exceptionaly... more clean and well furnished. less

Very Nice Condo
We thought the Condo was very wonderful, well decorated, clean and roomy. It exceeded what were were expecting. We were expecially appreciative of the extra spices and kitchen things that normally are missing from previous rentals . The only thing lacking was extra linens for... more the living room bed. We had reserved the condo for three people and required three beds (one of the reasons we chose a sleep 6 condo). Our third guest lived in the islands and had brought a sleeping bag just by chance so we were OK, but would have preferred that there had been lines for his bed. There was also more traffic noise than we had anticipated from the resort less

Aloha Geraldine Hankins, We’re pleased to hear that our condo 10-201 at Kona Coast Resort exceeded your expectations and everything worked out well during your 4 night stay with us. I wish we could have assisted you and certainly would have preferred it, had we been informed of your need of a third bed. The condo was rented for 2 beds only (a King & a Queen size) sleeps 4 guests and we do offer a sofa-sleeper for (2 additional guests) for an additional fee as stated in the Policies and Web Page. Please in the future when booking make the owner aware of your intent of use of property as it will make for your stay more complete and no surprises for anyone. Kona Coast Resort is a large property with 2 pools, Jacuzzis, Tennis Courts, Restaurant, workout room, activities center and many services for our guests and can be very busy at times. We hope you enjoyed some of the many amenities that it offered you. -Lesley Blanco, Owner condo 10-201.
Great time, great location
This condo is very well set up and in a great location. There is security on the gate which makeas it easy to let kids explore by themselves. Easy access to the pools in the condo and a 10 minute walk to a beach wirh... more great snorkeling. Five minutes to walk to a the nearby mall with movies, resturants, and groceries. A very comfortable stay. less

Romantic, Affordable & Can't Wait to Return to 10201
This is a very large one level unit that has views of the ocean from the minute you step into the condo. The pictures do not do justice to this well maintained condo. The Spa shower was wonderful at the end of a full day... more of sightseeing & hiking. We enjoyed some of our dinners relaxing on the large lanai and watching the sunset. less

We travelled to Kona for an outrigger canoe race. The condo was absolutely perfect for team dinners!! Kitchen well-appointed, lanai large and facing the sunset, great bbq on the lanai, dining room table for all. It's a really big condo!! Washer & dryer, dishwasher, nice... more evening breeze. Would be a nice place for a family get-away also. less

Wonderful summer getaway!
We have stayed in Kona Coast Resort before, but this condo was bigger than the ones we have stayed before. It also was very quiet, has a beautiful view from the lanai and is easy to check in. No hassle to pick up the keys... more and signing up papers. Key box code is a great thing! We had to stay an extra night due to a canceled flight and that was not a problem, we just booked another night and went right back. This is a great condo for a family or 2 couples... clean, spacious and easy to access! less

Want to stay forever.
This was by far the best condo we have EVER stayed in. The owners provided all the necessary information a few weeks prior to the trip and then contacted us a couple of days before arrival to make sure we had all the information we... more needed. Directions were easy to follow and the coded lockbox ensured it was easy to get in and we never locked ourselves out. The condo itself was beautifully constructed, furnished and decorated, with pictures and art work that gave it a warm, welcoming feel. Although the entire condo was woonderful, the bathrooms deserve special mention. Spacious layouts, beutiful tile work and the rolled river rock floors int he showers are a great touch! The kitchen was a delight with Island-themed dishes and every cooking utensil imaginable. We hosted a number of dinner parties for local friends and all were very impressed with how at home they felt there. They were also envious of the spectacular sunsets they enjoyed from the dining room and the lanai. The condo stayed pleasantly cool with its' East to West exposure capturing breezes off the ocean ( I swear best location in the whole complex). In the mornings we watched whales breaching and every evening we watched the sunset from the lanai before firing up the bar-b-que for dinner. Although we were on vacation, we have 24/7 type jobs so the wireless connectivity allowed us to check in and avert an insurmountable amount of e-mails upon our return to reality. The resort property had two lovely pools, three hot tubs, two tennis courts, and a small workout facility. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The grocery and drug stores were a five minute walk and Kahalu'u Beach with its' friendly fish and abundance of sea turtles was a 10 minute walk. Kona town is a 10 minute drive. Despite the convenient location, the condo was incredibly quiet with no noise from Ali'i Drive. There is nothing I would change about this condo or the location. It was perfect! less

Fabulous Family Vacation
This condo is in a prime location right off the highway and right near the market. The ocean view from the lanai is just fabulous. We felt at home the whole week we were there and everything you need is there including beach and pool... more toys, cooking spices and condiments, internet and entertainment. The condo is very well kept and very comfortable. We had a great time and would come back any time! We loved the big island. There is sooooo much to do. Thanks for a lovely stay!! Mahalo! less

This condo was absolutely fantastic! We stayed for about a week and it truly felt like home. Having the "extras" like beach towels, sand mats, ice chests etc really made life easier. The condo was in wonderful condition, and it's so large and spacious. We... more have stayed at this complex many times before and this unit was by far the best. We will definitely be back! less

Relax and Enjoy!
We had an absolutely fabulous week in this condo! It was clean, decorated very nicely, peaceful, and quiet. It was a joy to wake up in the morning, sit outside drinking our coffee, and look out towards the water. After spending a week in a... more hotel on Oahu, this was a much welcomed change of pace. My mother fell in love with the floorplan and is still asking to this day when we are going back! There is a grocery store close by and it is convenient to just about all the activities available on the Big Island. We would definitely recommend a stay here! less

We had a great week in Kona with two small children. The unit was spacious and roomy with a full kitchen to cater to most family needs. Conveniently located close to the gate of the complex, but no noise of traffic. The sunset from the... more Lanai is quite a sight, and makes you feel as though you own a piece of paradise, for a modest price. Keauhou is a nice quiet location, just the right distance from Kailua so that you don't feel too secluded, but have the luxury of silence at night at the same time. Groceries and daily necessities are just across the street at the Keauhou Shopping center, where you can just about find anything you may want during a one week vacation. A 10 minute jog down to the beach is great getting down, but the hill climb up can be a challenge if you jog too far down Ali'i drive. Overall, it's good fun for the kids and family. less

Restful and fun
The condo was very spacious and very clean. The owners were kind enough to accomodate our tennis group of senior women. Yes, we will definitely consider staying at this same property again during our next Kailua-Kona Tennis Tournament. Mahalo Plenty, Leyen Meyer

Great place for family fun
We spent a wonderful week on the Big Island. Keauhou is a quiet and peaceful area, just the right distance away from Kailua Kona, but convenient enough not to feel secluded. This is a great base for activities, and the complex has just the right... more size pool for kids. Groceries are a 5 min. drive away, and a beach at walking distance. less

A great escape in all ways
We got exactly what was advertised a very well appointed, very clean, beautiful and a very handy location from which to base our vacation from. Seemed to be about exactly central to all the things we did. Would we stay here again? With out hesitation,... more we even left our boogie boards there to see if they survive till we can make it back again. Hopefully sooner than later. less

What a great stay!!
We had a great stay at the Kona Coast Resort 10-201 in Keauhou with all of the comforts of home. Large lanai with an outdoor gas grill. KTA, local grocery store, and Longs are located within walking distance to the property. Kahulu'u is the closest... more beach with great snorkeling. We visited in April, so eventhough there wasn't any air conditioning, the ceiling fans provided adequate air circulation. There's a pool that's great for little ones and you can get towels there. We can't wait to return! (Note: In the description it mentions there are no steps to/from unit. There are actually a few steps down to the unit from the parking area.) less
