We stayed in 4-202 for a week in February. It was a small one bedroom but had everything we needed, included a washer/dryer albeit a small one. We cooked a few meals at the condo since eating out became a chore with the crowds. The view was partially obstructed by the trees, but I think Bldg 4 has the best...

Stayed in 3-202 for a week and loved it but we were in Hawaii. :) Fully stocked condo, everything we needed and plenty of space for the 2 of us! Each condo is privately owned so they vary. Ours had some update, but could use a new mattress and such. Kona Makai has plenty of parking for guests and is...

We stayed here for 4 nights in building 6 unit 303. The condo was perfect. Clean, well stocked and the view from the balcony was spectacular. Although we didn't snorkel there, there is a great cove to go and explore right out front of the resort. We would stay here again if we go back.

We stay here every trip to Kona. The grounds are beautiful. The ocean front condos are the perfect place to watch Kona sunsets. Great pool area and ocean front barbecues. Ping pong table and small gym. If you can get an oceanfront unit do so. The wrap around lanai are amazing. Would highly recommend staying here for any occasion. Manager...

We stayed in this condo the first time we visited Kona over 10 years ago. We have been back to Kona many times, but this is the first chance we've had to stay here again. It has been remodeled and is better than we remembered it. We love the views, the sound of the ocean, the privacy, and the well-manicured...

My wife and I stayed at the Kona Makai for a month (Parts of March and April 2016). Its an okay place if you intend to sleep only. Before renting ask about the house rules but don't worry when you get there they are posted all over the buildings and grounds. You cant be on your lanai after 9pm, don't...
