Welcome to Kona Makai

Welcome to our one-bedroom condo at Kona Makai.  Kona Makai is a condo complex in Kailua-Kona known for its privacy, easy access to town, and its amazing tropical gardens.  Nestled just about half a mile from Kailua village, Kona Makai gives you everything you need in a vacation condo.  Ocean views, a work out room, pool, spa, tennis courts, ocean side BBQ, and most of all, that feeling of being in a tropical paradise on the edge of the Pacific ocean. 

Our one-bedroom condo is ready for your tropical vacation.  With a California King bed in the bedroom and a queen-size fold out sofa in the living room, our unit fits four comfortably.  A full kitchen lets you eat in or sample any of the world-class restaurants on the island.  We supply everything you could need, right down to the blender for those sunset cocktails.  Beach towels, snorkel gear, lunch cooler, even a hairdryer is provided.  You just need to bring your bathing suit and toothbrush.

Our Tropical Condo Awaits

Our condo has everything you need for your perfect Hawaiian holiday.  One bedroom and one bath is the perfect size for a couple or even four people.  Our unit is our vacation home, and we love to share it with guests when we can’t be there.  We have recently updated the unit with new flooring, new washer and dryer, new slider screen doors, and even new plumbing.  In July, 2021, we replaced the older sofa bed with one sporting a high-end eight inch queen sized mattress for greater comfort for our guests.  All you need to do is relax and enjoy.

This is a no-smoking unit, and smoking is only allowed in designated areas within the complex.  Our condo is decorated in a Hawaiian plantation style, with tropical touches so you really feel like you are in the Islands and not just a hotel room in Anywhere, USA.

Some Comments From Our Guestbook

"I don't know how many hours I spent looking at vacation rentals but kept coming back to this one, and I was glad I chose it. The lanai is just as inviting as it looked in the picture, a great setting for breakfast and morning coffee. The condo has everything we needed, the grounds are beautiful, the location convenient. Thanks for the use of fins and the tip about Kahalu'u."

Thanks so much for sharing this little slice of paradise with us! We absolutely fell in love with the Big Island and particularly with this cute little town (Kailua-Kona)! We can't wait to come back. We are actually thinking about planning our next trip next year. You guys have a lovely home and everything was made to make us feel very welcome, which is why it's going to be hard to go back to our cold Canada.

The week has been both relaxing and rejuvenating! My daughters were able to make it, my mother was coincidentally down the street for a few days and it was truly a retreat for three generations of women. Your place is just lovely. I spoke with a few neighbors and everyone agrees Kona Makai is very special. The gardens, the ocean/rocks, quiet and tranquil and perfect weather this time of year (October). We had a wonderful time! Thank you so much!

We loved being here on the Big Island for a week's vacation. We very much enjoyed staying in your beautiful condo. We also really appreciated how well supplied it is, meeting our every need! Our favorite adventures were the Umauma Falls, zip-lining, snorkeling with the mantra rays and the volcano! A lovely, relaxing trip. Thanks for your hospitality!
