Our condo #213's lanai hung over the ocean!!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 5, 2008

We stayed at Hale Kona Kai #213 for 2 weeks and were amazed, we have never have been this close to the ocean in our lives, even on a cruise ship. The lanai hung over the ocean! We saw turtles right below our lanai every day! Every morning at 8AM the dolphins did spins and raced across the bay, we just sat on the lanai with coffee and mango and watched them. There was a big teak chaise on the lanai which we loved sitting on and reading. The condo was very nice, granite kitchen with everything for cooking including table cloths, lots of china and loads of drink ware... we did mai tais every night. Bedroom was beautiful with nice art and a great comfy bed. Living room was bright and cheerful, flat screen TV and loads of books on Hawaii!! The complex is very nice, it is small and on a side street off of the main street that goes through town, so it is very quiet, all we could hear was the ocean. The pool was nice, no one really used it, we used it one night and had it to ourselves. Most everyone seemed to go next door to the lagoon where there were turtles and fish. The lady in the office was very helpful, she directed us to a nice beach that had loads of turtles and also directed us to the Royal Kona Resort next door to Hale Kona Kai where we had a nice dinner. She also showed us some of the other units there, I think we will return to unit 213... We liked the units ending in 12 and 13 because those had the bigger lanais and hung over the ocean, however we did like some of the other units she showed us (405 and 411) and would stay in one of those if 213 was not open. Oh by the way, the bedrooms and living rooms are oceanfront! Very unusual for condos in Kona. We walked into town a few nights, it was not a long walk maybe 10 minutes. We walked to the farmers market, which was especially nice. We booked through Triad, spoke with Adeline at konanow.com 800 421 3696. She sent us directions from the airport which was very helpful since we got in so late. She also sent us a list of activities and directions to the market and beaches. It was an easy drive to most things that we wanted to do, we found this location very nice yet off of the beaten path. We have stayed at other condos in Kailua-Kona and none are as nice as this complex especially for the price.

Unique Quality: 10 feet to the ocean. Amazing sunsets. Sounds of the ocean. Bed room and living room oceanfront. Turtles and dolphins viewed from the lanai. Clean condos and friendly staff. Walk to town. Walk to beach.

Directions: Near town and next door to the Royal Kona Resort, down the street from Huggos.

Hale Kona Kai is not a resort. It's a four-story building of 39 one bedroom condos, right on the water in Kailua-Kona Town. We stayed in unit number 408, which was very clean and comfortable. The air-conditioned unit was carpeted and tiled, with a full kitchen with granite countertops and a nice lanai (balcony) facing the pool and ocean. We chose it mainly because of the location and price. The location is right in town, within walking distance to all restaurants & shops on Ali'i Drive, the main drag in Kailua. The price was $125/night, through Triad Mgmt's web site, halekonakaicondos.com, $10 off the listed price.

Unique Quality: I wouldn't call Hale Kona Kai outstanding but it was certainly fine, especially for the price. It's definitely a good value. However, I think I'd avoid the unit numbers ending in -09 and also -11 because they have views only of the Royal Kona Resort next door. All of the rest of the units have great views of the ocean though I can't vouch for the condition of all of the units since they are all individually owned and maintained. Each unit has one assigned parking spot, so parking is not a problem. It's also located on a small side street off of Ali'i Drive, so you don't hear all the traffic noise like some of the condos on Ali'i. All we could hear was the ocean but I didn't find it too loud like I've seen some people complain about on other travel web sites. The pool is small but clean and serviceable. If you're not looking for glitz, but simply a cozy home away from home on the Big Island, right in Town then I can certainly recommend Hale Kona Kai. If you like the extra amenities that a resort can provide then I'd say try one of the resorts in Keauhou or Kohala.

Directions: Hale Kona Kai is right in Kailua-Kona Town and right on the ocean.
