We had a tremendous time while staying in the Kahului Alii house. Beautiful view, super easy access to a great snorkeling and surfing spot. The house was well equipped, clean and everything worked. I would highly recommend Kona Coast and especially the Kahului Alii penthouse.

An amazing snorkeling and surfing spot!

We stayed for 1 week at a beautiful penthouse condo in Kona, across from an amazing snorkeling and surfing spot. We were able to watch the surfers from our HUGE lanai, and even took a surf lesson from one of the 2 neighboring surf shops. The ocean views from the lanai were gorgeous and the furniture out there was perfect - it included a large table and chairs where we often tele-worked and ate, as well as a cozy set of lounge furniture for happy hours. The house was nicely decorated and included everything we needed for the beach and hiking. There were fans with lights in each room and there was a clicker for each, all labeled and hung thoughtfully on wall switches, which made them very easy use depending on which rooms we were in. The bed was incredibly comfortable and we slept each night with the screen open. Highly recommend!

Great Spot!

This penthouse was almost perfect. The lanai with the view is well worth the price alone. The property is very clean and very well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook or bbq. There are ceiling fans and ac units in each room which makes the entire place very comfortable to relax in . There was only one day we actually stayed home and enjoyed the unit but the temp was 91 degrees and humid which overpowered the ac units and fans so we ended up walking across the street to the beach. Our only issue was the private elevator. Our flight was delayed so we did not get to the house until around 1am. We put our bags in the elevator, closed the outside door and then the folding door and hit floor 2. The elevator started to go up and then it stopped. My wife pushed the buttons which did nothing and she tried to open the folding door but could not so we started to freak out a bit. Then i tried and was able to open the folding door but the outside door was locked. For whatever i looked at the top of the outside door and saw a metal sheet on the door and the door jamb so i assumed it was some sort of security sensor. we gave the outside door a couple of shakes, closed the folding door, pushed 2nd floor and the elevator took us up. Any other time it happened we followed the same steps and it worked like a charm. There are stairs but the elevator is very useful after a day of shopping and checking in and out and its your own private elevator! Aside from that the living space, the lanai and the view was perfect!!!

Clean, spacious, well appointed, comfortable beds, great location and well managed. Very relaxing stay and across the street from a public park with good snorkeling. Was very hot while we were there and started to use AC but not very effective once condo was already hot. Instead we opened up all the screened windows including ones up high. It cooled down nicely, and cool enough to sleep at night with covers. With open windows could hear wonderful birdsong in AM. Highly recommend and would go back.. Thank you.

This place was fantastic! Excellent location with truly "spectacular ocean views". We loved being able to listen to the waves! Everything about the place was great, from the huge and well furnished wrap around lanai, to the excellent cross ventilation, to the private elevator, and of course the well furnished interior. The condo was clean, well maintained, and very spacious. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone and the next time we visit The Big Island we hope to be able to rent the same place as it would be hard to beat!

We loved watching the whales while eating dinner on the lanai

The sunsets were spectacular as well. The Penthouse unit is a 2 bedroom & 2 bath unit, with a large open living room, dining room and kitchen, which face the ocean view. The kitchen is well stocked except for the number of glasses. The soap dispenser in the dishwasher only worked correctly about a 1/3 of the time, otherwise everything was fine. As mentioned in other reviews (and we were aware of this before renting the unit) there is an open beam ceiling through the entire unit and the bedroom walls only go up 8’. So there is not much privacy between bedrooms. All of this said, we had a great time. You are literally right across the street (Alii Drive) from the Kahaluu Park and beach, where there is great snorkeling. We saw turtles, eels, octopus, beautiful coral, and lots of colorful fish. The right side of the beach is reserved for surfing and you can rentvsurf boards right down the street. There is no boogie boarding available here though. The unit is about 4 1/2 miles from “downtown Kona”, but only about a mile from a shopping center, grocery store and good restaurants. When staying here I would recommend having a rental car. The unit has a beach towel for each guest (maximum of 4 guests) but no other beach equipment. Access to the unit is by steps or a slow elevator. But the elevator was handy when checking in & out with all of luggage and groceries. It was hard to leave the Penthouse and we look forward to returning some day. Thank you for sharing your fun home.

Very nice, clean, airy condo, especially with the spacious lanai. Good location and great views. Ample dishes, glasses, tableware, pots, pans; good appliances, good mattresses. Sometimes occupants of the other properties nearby are a bit noisy, but never late at night. Road noise from Alii Drive is very minimal. We certainly will consider renting again. Kona Coast Vacations is very service oriented. Bedroom walls are not finished fully up to the ceiling. Great for airflow, but it does not provide privacy. It did not bother us much.

This was a great location. Just across the street from one of the only beaches for snorkeling and surfing. The only negative was the early morning noisy neighbors to the east. They got up early and sat outside and talked nonstop which made it difficult to sleep in past 6:30. The beach chairs, umbrella and cooler made trips to the beaches very enjoyable. We particularly enjoyed Two Step beach near the painted church. The steps are to the far right as you look toward the ocean. We were snorkeling with Spinner Dolphins. If you like sushi, don’t pass up the opportunity to try Shimaichi Sushi in Kailua-Kona. Here are a few things that could be addressed to make the property even better: 1) Check the handle on the toilet in the master bathroom. It appears to have been installed toward the seat which, when raised, prevents the toilet from flushing properly. 2) More insulation needs to be added to the roof to reduce the heat buildup inside the unit. Maybe this could occur the next time the roof is replaced. 3) The elevator was stiflingly hot in the afternoon. The fan needs to be checked and solar film needs to be applied to the windows to reduce the heat gain.

Our family of four had a fantastic few days in the kahalu'u Ali'i penthouse. The apartment is exactly as seen in the photos. Everything was spotlessly clean and the lanai was a really lovely place to eat and relax watching the sun set.
We were a bit concerned about the location near the road before arriving but the noise wasn't a problem at all- just a bit of care needed crossing with the children.
We spent our early mornings snorkeling over the road where the fish and turtles were beautiful. We also enjoyed visiting two step and beaches further north. The rental really is in a great location.
The booking process was easy and efficient.
Coming from the U.K. I am not sure we will get back to Hawaii but if we ever do we would love to stay in the apartment again!

This vacation rental was exactly as described and photographed. It was very clean and comfortable. It is a great location and the outdoor lanai is large and very relaxing with a great view. This rental is secured with a push button lock coding system rather than a key, which is extremely convenient, in my opinion. My only complaint would be our checkout time was 11:00 but the lock code was set to a timer that must have been set at 10:58. I was thankful one of us was still in the house as you had to make a few trips up and down the stairs to get all your belongings to the car. If it would have locked us out that would have been a real bummer. My suggestion would be to set the lock code to expire at 11:05 or 11:10. No reason to set it for earlier than the 11:00 check out time. Date of Stay: 12/5/16 to 12/9/16

We were looking for a great family vacation accommodation and we found it. The location is exceptional. Easy starting point for any adventure around at the island... Or just great to hang out with surfing and snorkeling across the street. The space itself was outstanding. Clean, spacious and comfortable. We've staying at many places and often found the pictures painted a more favorable impression of the place than it deserved. That was not true with this penthouse unit. It was as good or better than the pictures. It recently had AC added but we only used it sporadically. The openness, ocean breeze and ceiling fans made for a very comfortable unit. It did take some effort to master the ceiling fan remotes. We only needed to contact the property management one time for BBQ propane. Our one request was taken care of very quickly. I highly recommend this unit for anyone who enjoys beautiful sunsets, easy access to the water, comfortable accommodations and great location. I've already recommended this property to friends. Date of Stay: 11/17/16 to 11/30/16

The unit was great, lots of space and a great lanai. The master bedroom has a very comfortable bed, almost like home. The walk in showers were awesome. I don't like tubs in rentals as many do not provide no slip mats, so this was great. Lots fans to provide cooling along with the air conditioners. We only had 2 issues with the unit. The kitchen has very tall cupboards but I could not locate a step stool to reach the top shelves, which is were the wine glasses were, so tumblers it was. I would not want to use the kitchen chair as a stool as this can be dangerous as well as possibly damaging the chairs. Also, the kitchen cupboards do not have handles on them or grooves to open the door. This is hard if you have arthritis in your fingers. But again, we made do for the time we were there. 

A perfect slice of paradise!

This is a beautiful property with outstanding ocean views. I stayed here for two weeks with my wife and kids in August 2016 and we were all impressed by the quality of this property. Everything in this penthouse is new. The kitchen is outstanding and has everything you need to feel like you are living on the island. No need to go out to dinner every night. The bathrooms are updated and the master bathroom has a spectacular view of Kahaluu Bay. Living room is very bright and has an open layout to the kitchen and dining room. The vaulted ceilings make the property feel very roomy and the many windows and sliding glass doors provide an ocean view from almost every room. And then there is the lanai. This lanai would knock your socks off (if you were wearing any) and is absolutely huge and it wraps around the entire penthouse. The furniture inside and out is immaculate and the king size beds are very comfortable. I was a little concerned that there was no A/C. I must say that this property does not need A/C. It is so open and airy and there are ceiling fans everywhere. My family was quite comfortable and we live in Alaska, so that should tell you something. It was nice to not have to worry about keeping the doors closed to keep the A/C in. It actually allows you to keep the doors and windows open, which in my opinion, provides for a much better island experience overall. We loved staying here and will recommend this property to our family and friends. Mahalo!!

We enjoyed 6 lovely days and nights just yards away from Kahalu'u beach where the snorkeling was superb and the sunsets awesome. Out of the fray of downtown Kailua, this exceptional vacation rental was just right. Easy access to the major routes to visit the rest of the island and to services, yet off the beaten path a bit. Ali'i drive is just below but traffic and/or noise was never and issue. The unit is meticulously maintained with plenty of space and the oweners provide everything you need - beach towels and chairs, an outdoor cold water shower for hosing off the sand, ping pong, darts and foosball for the kids (and adults!). And the lanai - well just look at the pictures online. We spent most of our time there. If we get back to the big island we will surely stay here again.

Perfect for us !

I live here in Kona, and I have a friend in Los Angeles that has never been to the Big Island so I flew her out here. We are both seniors and don't like to walk long distances . We were very happy to see that we could park just a few steps away from our own elevator ! I took my friend all over the Island , and what a wonderful place to come back to. Without the crowded hotel scene we were able to find the solitude and surprisingly quiet that enabled us to enjoy each other's company ! What a great view !
