I have stayed here multiple times, and have enjoyed it every time. The Condo is clean, and well appointed. The important things to me are a comfortable bed and an updated or well kept bathroom. This Condo has both. The bed was so comfortable for me, that I wanted to check the brand name to get one when I replace my own, but I forgot. The bathroom was remodeled from the original build, I believe, and it felt fresh. The kitchen is also fresh, but it’s not that important to me as I don’t always cook while I’m on vacation. But if you do, it has everything you would need. Only thing I can complain about is that there are no beach chairs to use. There are mats and beach towels, but I prefer to use chairs.

Just got back from our 18-day visit over Christmas break. Condo was clean and well set up with everything we needed during our stay: lots of room with a well-equipped kitchen and a laundry. A welcoming island fruit basket was a nice touch. Lanai was very inviting with a view of landscape and golf course. Beds were comfortable. We truly enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Hi Rita: Thank you so much for the lovely stay at your condo. The kitchen was very welled equipped which was well appreciated. The bed was quite comfy and we slept well. The only thing that was a bit bothersome was the urine smell coming from the bathroom. I think it was the toilet bowl cleaner maybe being old?? Also the kitchen cabinets smelt a bit musty, maybe the shelf liners??? Beside that though, we truly enjoyed the grounds and pool. Thank you again for sharing your condo.
Our cleaning lady has taken care of this issue by cleaning the toilet bowl cleaner, replacing the liners in the kitchen cabinets and placing air fresheners in the kitchen cabinets.
Overall condo atmosphere was great
Reviewed by Jenny
This condo area was by far the best atmosphere we’ve stayed. Most condos have so many strict rules, and with having boys, it was important to us that they could have “fun!” (We’ve stayed areas that they couldn’t even throw a football in the grass, and got yelled at in the swimming pool!) The amenities were open until 11 pm and had their own restaurant. The actual condo that we stayed in was ok, definitely needs a little updating, and there was no BBQ on the lanai like pictured or in the welcome book, (which was a big bummer since that was one of our requirements!) there was several community bbqs but we never used them with it being a little bit of a hassle. Overall it was ok, with it being the bottom condo, and no view, we most likely would not choose to stay there again, but served it’s purpose and the owner was quick at responding.
The pictures of our condo were taken about 8 years ago and since that time, Management has requested that we no longer provide the BBQ grill due to a liability issue. I'm sorry that this was an issue, but we are more concerned about the safety of our guests. We have also updated our welcome book. The pictures do show that our unit is a lower unit and the view is of the golf course.

We have been traveling to Kona for years. Kona is our happy place. My father has a time share at the Kona Coast where we have stayed multiple times. Recently my husband and I wanted a get-a-way. Out of curiousity, I check VRBO. We hit the jackpot when we found 5-102. Very reasonably priced and we were able to stay for 8 nights! Very clean, kitchen is well stocked, new washing machine/dryer, coolers for beach, pool toys and so much more. The bed was super comfortable too. They have a screened in lani which I had never seen before. A wonderful place for a space to read and relax. We will definitely be staying here again. Can’t wait for our next adventure. Grocery store two minutes away. And, as always, access to gym, pool and spa with breathing views. Aloha!!
Great vacation, except for...
Reviewed by Mary
Had a great stay...condo was great. Couple things would have made the rating 5 - the bedroom a/c worked great, but not so much in the living room and it’s needed being that Kona is so hot. Biggest annoyance which prevented us from enjoying the expected “great view” and “private patio” was that we stayed indoors with the curtains drawn most of the time because of the renovation/construction that was going on with the condo above us. The workers made quite a bit of noise going up and down, constantly passing the front living room area, and hanging out in front of the patio area too. We were really expecting to enjoy everything the place offered, with some peace and quiet, especially with the kids. Not trying to be antisocial, just trying to enjoy family time without the distractions. Other than that, looking forward to returning someday. Mahalo!
I'm sorry for the inconvenience of the remodel upstairs, we did not know that was happening. Thanks for the information on the a/c, it has been inspected and is running correctly. We have scheduled a thorough cleaning to help with efficiency.Rita
Wonderful Condo! 5-102 Kona Coast Resort
Reviewed by Claudia
Not only are the Resort's grounds and amenities impeccable, but Condo 5-102 is, hands down, the nicest condo I've ever stayed in. Not only is is well-appointed and decorated, but it has a huge open living/dining space, and a monstrously big bathroom with separate tub and walk-in shower and double sinks which, undoubtedly, have saved a few marriages during a Kona vacation (!) And kudos, too, for the king-sized pillow-top bed, which was a pure delight. Rita and Randy also deserve a lot of credit for their thoughtful inclusion of toiletries to which my husband has now become addicted (Organix, anyone?!) Basically, not only is this condo well decorated and designed tastefully, but also with a lot of thought and care, and I cannot speak highly enough not only of KCR's maintenance of the property, but also Rita and Randy's particular care and thoughtfulness of their guests.

This beautifully furnished, spacious condo provided everything we needed for a perfect week on the Big Island. From the moment we arrived and found the basket of fruit waiting for us, we knew we had made a great choice. We had family members staying in another unit at Kona Coast and our room was just a short walk from theirs. It was perfect. With so many rooms moving to a more "modern" decor, I was happy to find that sense of aloha and old hawaiiana in the furnishings of this condo. We highly recommend Condo 5-102.

As frequent visitors to the Big Island, we always look for places that offer good value, good location, clean, quiet and have enough room to relax. We were pleasantly pleased with this condo. It is all of the above and more. Communicating with the owner was easy and responsive. The condo was stocked with all kinds of extras. The welcome basket was a nice touch! The KCR is a nice complex, especially for families. As a gentle reminder to guests it would be great if a note was left in the condo on what days the groundskeepers are working. (Then we could plan our time to be out of the condo and away from the adult pool.. as it is kind of loud.) One item we missed having in the condo were beach chairs. Overall, our stay was great and would recommend this condo for a small party of 2-3. Thanks again.

Our Annual Home Away from Home....

We have stayed in Unit 5-102 at the Kona Coast for two successive summers and we look forward to going again next year!
The unit is very clean and has every amenity you can think of! Once you open the door, there is a beautiful tropical fruit basket waiting with the best pineapple I have ever eaten. The unit already has the air conditioning going and it was a welcome relief from the very hot climate. The kitchen has a full size fridge and all the cabinets are stocked with everything you need to make meals for the family. The full size washer and dryer was the best convenience to ensure that we could pack very lightly and still have enough clothes and swimwear for our vacation. The bathroom is very large with a walk in shower separate from the tub. The vanity area has two sinks which allowed me to get ready without hogging it all up to myself. The linen closet has lots of extras like shampoo, sunscreen, insect repellant and towels.
The bedroom has a large closet with a CA king bed and a lovely Hawaiian quilt. There is a small TV in the room, though we didn't use it much. There is a great sound system and TV in the living room. One of the best features is the enclosed lanai where you can drink your morning coffee and take in the fresh Hawaiian air without being totally attacked by the mosquitos!
I highly recommend this unit and look forward to booking it again!

A Pleasant Unit

We stayed almost a month in this one bedroom unit. Rita was very responsive to our needs. The unit is fairly spacious for a one bedroom, the bath is very large and bedroom roomy. We stayed without air and needed a couple extra fans, but it was comfortable once we acclimated. The furniture is comfortable and the lanai adequately large with its own gas BBQ. There is a mongoose den just across the grass from the lanai which kept Annabel fascinated. The fans in the kitchen and on the lanai wobble when on, which is disconcerting, but they seem to work. Use the server for the resort owner's WIFI, the resort's visitor server WIFI is very slow. We had a very pleasant stay. All in all a fair value.

The pictures and description did not do this condo justice. The bathroom was spacious and had a great shower layout. The entry is private (and hidden for those trying to find it the first time) and the unit is well shaded to keep cool. We loved having the ability to cook our own food and not depend on looking for restaurants. The kitchen was well equipped and the BBQ was ready to go. Everything was very clean. I have visited Hawaii many times and cockroaches were always around. I did not see any during this stay. The lanai's (yes 2 of them) were great for lounging after hanging out at the beach. Ali'i Drive is the primary run along the beach front and into downtown. Everything is close. Across the street is a shopping center that will help with quick pickups although we found Safeway to be the most economical way to shop.
The AC was not needed. Just opened the front and rear doors and the breeze was sufficient. Kona is a lava field and the scenery is very unique. Drive to the Hilo side and experience the rain forest feel. Kona is the sunny, arid side of the big island and is beautiful for everything that it is. Wear sunblock when outside.
After using this condo I will always try to avoid hotel rentals. This unit is a very beautiful, well cared for unit and anyone visiting the big island should consider this rental. It is much better than the pictures lead on.
FYI: Google directions were not accurate; however, the directions provided in the confirmation email were accurate.

Best location for the local experience

I couldn't believe how awesome this place was! It's a little resort that has a pool (actually has several pools, including an adult pool) with a bar that serves food and drinks poolside. It's not in the pool, but on the side with a rail, so you can kick back and watch your family splash about while you sip on a piña colada. You can even rent chairs and boogie boards for the beach! There was a sweet hula event with the local elementary school on the property with light refreshments which was a nice surprise.
The condo is located right across the street (literally!) from KTa Supermarket and a CVS in the same lot, you really just can't ask for more convenient location. The Poké there is amazing, so not leave without grabbing some.
It's the perfect place to run in and get the picnic essentials before hitting the beach 10 minutes down the road...and oh, the choices...! Magic Sands is so beautiful and barely a 5 minute drive. Best boogie boarding and sun soaking spot in the area. Kahaluu beach was only 10 minutes away and offered the best snorkeling we had on the entire trip.
Another 5 minutes away is the town where wonderful restaurants and shops are scattered all over alii drive. We went to the little street market past the mall for cheap and sweet fruit ($1 papayas!!!) every single day to stock up on more fruit and souvenirs. There was so much to do, but it was fine to lounge around on the sand and do the opposite...
This location couldn't be better and I was coming down the coast from the Four Seasons Hualalai. I didn't regret the change in the least and was happy I did! It's a cozy, clean home with retro decor, think 80's, but definitely comfortable with its big kitchen, patio and BBQ. Not much of a view, but you don't need it when you really should be outside anyway.
The only con: the bathroom has poor ventilation, but there was a tower fan that we just used basically all the time and there was no problem. Would definitely return in a heartbeat.

The parking was sometimes a challenge in that you cannot park in the garage, nor in front of it. Sometimes I had to walk a ways from the guest parking.

We always bring our daughter and our granddaughter from the mainland to Hawaii, where we live, every year. And we always drive over to Kona for a mini-vacation so our granddaughter can get her fill of swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and boogie-boarding. We usually stay in an ocean-front unit but this time, in order to save some money, stayed in this unit at the Kona Coast Resort. We didn't have a view of the ocean from our lanai but it didn't matter. The swimming pool with its great casual restaurant and bar was a block away, the shopping center was a block from the resort, Kailua's best snorkel beach was a half mile away and the boogie boarding was a couple of miles away.
The unit, quite modern and new, was well-appointed, spacious and immaculate. We were still finding neat things in cupboards and closets on our last day. The twin lanais overlooking the fairway were very private and much-used. Being at ground level was a plus in not having to lug suitcases and coolers up the stairs.
We did not need the staff but the few we passed were friendly and courteous. One chauffered us to the pool in his golf cart when we didn't know where it was. We would stay there again.
