The Kona Makai community is surrounded by manicured gardens and fragrant tropical flowers.

Conveniently located near downtown Kailua-Kona, you'll love exploring the area and its many significant Hawaiian cultural landmarks. Both the Hulihee Palace and the Mokuaikaua Church are located on Ali'i Drive. King Kamehameha I spent his last years living near the current site of what is now the King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel, until his passing in 1819. The Ahu'ena Heiau, located on the grounds of the hotel, is a reconstructed temple rebuilt by the late king and is on the register of National Historic Landmarks.
People and cruises watch from the Kailua-Kona Pier, where you'll have access to Hawaii's best scuba diving, big-game fishing, kayaking, and dolphin and whale watching. Visit the famous farmers market. Enjoy a shave ice or a cup of Kona coffee. Dine on a light snack or a gourmet meal, buy an inexpensive souvenir or a piece of fine art, book an activity, go for a swim or hang out at the beach. The pier is the official starting and finishing point of the Ironman World Championship (held annually in October), and a great place to watch the sunset. Everything you want and need is readily available in the heart of Kailua-Kona town.
The Kona Makai community is the perfect home base to explore a variety of Big Island sites and activities, such as Volcanoes National Park, Mauna Kea Observatory and so much more.

Great place to stay in Kona. Close to shops, restaurants and beaches.by Amy M
Perfect Locationby Mickey T
We enjoyed our stay at Makai Kona #2304. The condo was clean and accommodated our family of 5 perfectly. Appreciated that the owners had supplied beach towels and beach chairs. The rental was perfect for our family providing space for all of us. The location was close to many local favorites. We would definitely stay here again .
Highly recommend this placeby Marco M
Our stay was very pleasant. The apartment is super central to beach’s, restaurants and shops on Kona. Cleanliness was superb and the apartment had great amenities for us to use. Everything from beach towels to a cooler was available. There were great views to the beach for beautiful sunsets. Highly recommend this place.
Résidence et appartement très agréable et bien situé. Nous le recommandonsby Geraldine M
Nice, spacious, clean condoby Liz J
Nice, spacious, clean condo. Watched some lovely sunsets while we grilled out on the common deck area. Close to everything.
Amazing location with many amenities and personal touchesby C S
Great location, views, amenities!by Linda P
Highly recommend! Great location in town, gorgeous views of ocean, lovely pool and the condo was big & clean. Only watch outs are that it is in 3rd floor so you have to walk up stairs with luggage. Parking is on property but not right next to condo & not reserved.
The interior was lovely. Great room !!by Kenichi O
We had an amazing time staying at the Kona Makai!by Aiden X

We really enjoyed our stay at this propertyby Elizabeth L
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The location to town is great: about a mile and a half, a nice walking distance. It was quiet, the ocean view for sunset from area by BBQs was excellent, the condo was clean and quite nice. We had 6 people and it was the perfect size.
This property is beautiful and it has everythingby Josseline S
This property is beautiful and it has everything. I loved the pool area and you can relax and watch the sunset. Got to see so many birds around the garden and it was a very quiet neighborhood. Loved that everything was close to everything.
Great location (right next to the water, near fun beaches, and decent food). The check-in process is a little different than normal since the property is run through a management company instead of an individual, and you need to communicate through email or phone. Once you get used to that, it's pretty simple, and they are very responsive. The property had all the amenities we needed (washer/dryer, dishwasher, beach towels, AC). We had to get more shampoo/conditioner and laundry detergent after a day or so since we had 6 people. There is no elevator, and it is on the 3rd floor so be prepared to haul any heavy luggage up 2 flights of stairs. There is reserved parking for 1 car and street parking for any additional cars.
The condo was very clean. Location was great. Complex felt safe and secure. Grounds are beautiful! Our favorite thing was watching the sunset nightly with the other guests and owners.
The Big Islandby Michelle M
This was an amazing property right on the water. The location was perfect. We had 5 people, two adults and three adult children and there was plenty of room for all to move about comfortably.
Favorite Complexby Katrina C
Kona Makai is our favorite complex to stay at. Pros on this unit.... enough space for all 5 of us, cooled down once we got the a/c units turned on, beds were comfortable. Cons.... the pillows were all flat, some didn't have cases on them. There was a towel that was stained very badly. Thankfully there were others to use. Overall, I would stay here again, it was very clean and had all the accommodations our family needed.
The condo was very clean and had the essentials for our trip. Pool and hot tub were well kept. Our view was breath taking. You can hear the ocean waves crashing in the rocks at night while you’re sleeping. The facility was so beautifully filled with so much tropical plants.
Aloha, There where many nice places to choice from on Airbnb. We settled on this space because of the location, amenities and value. We had a bigger budget but felt this was perfect for our stay. It was just that...Perfect. Everything that we expected and more. The space was very nice and comfortable. The property was exciting for the whole family. We enjoyed just chilling out after days of running. because of the properties and amenities. But the thing that surprised me the most was the people that leased to us and took care of us. I would give them 5 Stars for hospitality service and care! Thank you Ashley and Nick from Elite Pacific for all your help and communication. We had a trip of a life time. Mahalo, Steve
Kona Makai’s property is amazing. The grounds are well kept and spread out. I grilled burgers on the Webber grills out by the ocean. Stargazed on the black rock beach. Enjoyed the pool and lounge chairs daily. 5 min slow drive to downtown Kona or Magic Sands Beach. 30 min to Two-Step or Cook’s. The condo is very nice and well equipped. There’s AC in every room, which helps on the hot days. Sunsets are beautiful from the balcony. Kitchen is well stocked as well as chairs and beach towels. I’d highly recommend this place.
Great place to start our trip!by Cristobal B
Kona Makai 2304 was a wonderful way to start our trip. The location is close to Kailua Kona spots and the setting is beautiful. The garden views and beach scene from the balcony are much more than the pictures show. Truly stunning! And the birds! Wonderful sounds and sights all around. The apartment is super clean and comfortable. The loft space has some stairs to negotiate as does the building (third floor), but everything felt comfy, clean and enjoyable. We had a few issues (a coffee grinder that didn’t work, and a strange issue with the loft AC), but Tom was very responsive. Got us a new grinder that worked and the management did their best to resolve the perplexing AC issue. Luckily the unit worked when needed, and we are sure they will resolve it. Overall, we would stay here again in a heartbeat! Checking was easy, the management company ensured that we were up-to-date with COVID requirements before we left and they communicated well. It was our first week on the island and a great way to get our bearings and reset our clocks to vacation mode! Thanks!
Pretty nice location. House is clean and comfy.by Runjie Z
Great place for a family!by Kathryn T
We loved the loft, it was a perfect space for the kids to sprawl out. The unit was clean and updated, with A/C units in all the rooms. The grounds were immaculate! Also the ocean view from the lanai was nice. Check in/out was contactless which was great.
Nice clean condo, well laid out. Beautiful grounds and view. Have enjoyed staying here twice
This place is a must if you’re thinking of staying in Kailua Kona. Place was clean, and had almost everything you could ever need. Plus the view from the patio is one of a kind.
Quick response and communication. Great location. Cute unit. Nicely updated. Very comfortable for 6 people. Had a great stay. The whole family enjoyed it.
Very beautiful place to stay at. The two bedroom units with oceanfront view is unbelievable! Ocean breeze blowing in, listening to the waves crash onto the lava rocks. Dosen't have sand beach but they a just a couple blocks away.
Nice place to stay near the cityby Sarah S
