The property is beautifully landscaped and maintained. However, there was never anyone available in the management office.

Unit 2303 was very outdated and in bad condition. The bed was the worst I've ever slept in. Old, stained, hard, thin mattress. Dingy rough towels, Smart TV that wouldn't get TV. If we didn't have Amazon Prime we would have had nothing to watch. Dirty, stained carpet, refrigerator that froze our food and awful Teflon pans that were scratched and peeling. That is downright dangerous. We weren't able to cook much in this dingy, old kitchen which meant we had to spend more money on eating out. Furniture is dirty and uncomfortable. Tub was dingy and really old. Few lamps with dim bulbs--had trouble reading. Overall, it was terrible. It's long past time for this owner to invest some money in this unit. Again, beautiful property, but find another unit.

Words cannot express how perfect this was. Loved every minute.

It was so good.but I think there was three problem about property.
At first, door to balcony is too heavy.
Second, there was no one in the office not all time but so many time there wasn't them.
Third, screen door was brokn.

The location and premises were perfect. Quiet and the grounds looked beautiful. The unit was great however the furniture, mattresses, pillows and appliances need to be updated. Not complaining but they do need updating.

Stayed here with 4 adults, 1 child. The unit has a master bedroom plus a loft bedroom. There is a single bathroom, plus a perfectly-sized kitchenette, and of course, lanai.

The unit came with strict warnings about proper behavior (e.g., no towels or gear on the lanai) and some reviews noted grumpy property management. We didn't have any issues, nor interactions with those folks, however.

The space was nice, well-furnished, and very comfortable. Multiple fans kept the space comfortable, though we turned on the AC twice over our weeklong stay. That was mostly for the folks sleeping up in the loft (heat rises ;-)).

The owner kindly rescheduled a few standard maintenance activities to allow our stay within our preferred dates, which was much appreciated. The unit itself was generally in great shape already.

Amenities were much appreciated as part of our longer vacation and included: full-sized refrigerator (with ice maker/COOOOLD freezer), washer and dryer, and even a dishwasher. It was also fully furnished with common kitchen tools and utensils (including quality knives!). We made good use of this and cooked several meals for ourselves.

We loved our vacation rental!
It was: easy to find, clean, well decorated which allowed for a peaceful atmosphere, had everything we needed!
The grounds were immaculate! Absolutely gorgeous and lush!
The pool and sitting poolside was great!
Being on the ocean was amazing. You could go down and be seaside or enjoy the ocean from the lanai!
Management was friendly and helpful! I also appreciated the fact that the enforced rules which helps keep a peaceful and enjoyable atmosphere!
All the folks staying at the condo were very friendly and helpful with information pertaining to excursions and beaches.
Location was central. Easy access to everything we needed!

Had a great vacation and the condo had plenty of room for the four of us, handy pool, great BBQs and ocean front. Great location and Boundless Hawaii was excellent providing prompt service. (PS Tesla Solar Powered Complex!!)
Cindy D. March 3, 2017
We really enjoyed our stay. Liked being on the 3rd floor with view of ocean and sightings of dolphins and whales. Pool and grounds were great. Good location. Furniture was a little dated...but not a deal breaker!

Property was excellent. Condo could use a good cleaning. Carpet was especially dirty

The property is very well maintained by the property manager living on the premises. The unit itself while incredibly located could use some improvements. The bed was horribly uncomfortable and the bathroom very dated with poor shower flow.

Our family of 5 loved staying at Kona Makai 2-303. The condo had everything we needed and was very clean. The location was ideal for beaches, restaurants and gorgeous view right from the lanai. The condo complex has beautiful gardens and is very quiet. Highly recommend staying here.

We love Kona Makai & have been spending Christmas in Kona for last 10 years. This is the first time in his unit, however. Although it was clean (with new carpet) & adequate. We are used to preparing & eating most meals in the condo . it could stand a bit of updating & there are some recommendations: unit is to accommodate 4 people & there were just 2 of us... We would recommend he following: kitchen (more full sized forks... Silverware is mismatched wh only 2 dinner forks, potato masher, fix broken drawers, acrylic glasses for pool use (only 3), liquid measuring cup, fix stove burners & stove clock or replace stove). Living room: chairs are very uncomfortable, and most people might not spend much time in the unit, but we go to Kona to relax & had to bring bed pillows to chairs to be comfortable while watchng TV. Lanai... We spend much time there & play games at night, plus eat all meals there. The small lamp does not provide enough light. There are hooks for hanging lamp, & would recommend a lamp be hung there. Bathroom: fix sink stopper. Cannot close drain. Other: We have stayed in other units & most have coolers to be used when going to beach or on day trips this one did not.

beautiful grounds and a very quiet place. The master bed was very very comfortable. a little warm in the loft on really muggy nights. They need to fix the leaky kitchen sink. would stay there again.

Lovely place. Love everything about this apartment from location to set-up. Will definitely be back. Only one suggestion for you, best to run the dished in the dish washer every so often as not all guest use them. Other than that is is without a doubt one of the best places I have ever stayed at. Can't wait to bring my family with me next time
Cindy A. January 10, 2018
Our stay at Kona Makai 2303 was pleasant - here are the good points: location (about a mile walk to Kona), view of ocean, pool/barbeque area, layout of condo, extra's it had ie, beach umbrella & chairs, cooler, plastic containers, extra towels and linens. Property management company was very good - had an issue with construction noise which they dealt with professionally.
The bad points: the condo is a bit tired - it needs updating and the carpets were pretty dirty. The bathroom in particular needs updating. In saying that, the price for the condo was good, so I guess you get what you pay for. I would stay in this unit again if it was updated (carpets/bathroom/kitchen).

Great complex, grounds are well maintained. We stayed in same building, different unit 6 months ago and were happy (except for 1 x centipede) ... this time we stayed in top unit while there was construction (installing solar panels on roof?) which resulted in debris falling inside the condo. Wish we knew that was happening at that time, we would have come a week or so earlier or later. Also (and this was a BIG issue for us) the 3 inch cockroaches we saw inside the unit (one fell on one of us while we were in bed!) were not appreciated. Not sure if we were just lucky in Dec. not to have seen any but we will definitely have to think twice about returning because of the cockroaches.

Great location and very nice Condo. We would go back to this unit again.

Cindy T. December 9, 2014
The condo was lovely and more than adequate. Loved having a big window in the main bedroom to see the sunrise, then watching the sunset from the balcony. Location was wonderful - close to everything. The grounds were beautiful. A wonderful, relaxing, beautiful place to enjoy the Big Island. We hope to be back!

We had a wonderful stay at Kona Makai 2-303. The location made travelling in any direction easy. The grounds and pool area are beautifully maintained. The only thing we would suggest for improvement is to the unit itself. While it works extremely well, there are things that should be either updated or repaired. The kitchen contains lots of repeat items and yet is missing some basic ones. The bathroom should be redone completely, and perhaps the kitchen as well. It's just time.

We enjoyed our stay in Kona. The directions from Boundless Hawaii to the Condo were excellent. When we arrived, the air conditioning did not work. Called Boundless Hawaii and they came and fixed it within an hour which was awesome. The bed was comfortable and the view from the lanai was fantastic! All in all a nice and comfortable stay. I do think the carpet and furniture could be updated, but it did suit us just fine. Would like to see handicapped designated parking in the lot somewhere.
Debbie F. April 14, 2015
We arrived April 3, 2015. The information from Boundless Hawaii was very clear and concise. Our condo was on the third floor, which provided us a stunning oceanview! The two of us had plenty of space, the kitchen was well stocked, with the exception of non-breakable plates for use around the grill. But this was remedied by us purchasing paper plates. I would highly recommend this condo.

Well maintained condo (though dated) in a good location, with beaches and other attractions to both the north and the south. Lovely grounds to condo complex; partial view of ocean. We appreciated the option of room a/c which worked well. We didn't use the amenities - small pool and hot tub oceanside, and tennis courts streetside. Internet very poor with erratic and weak connectivity. Condo is a 3rd story walk up, which was fine for us (and, as a result, we had the partial ocean view and quiet), but potential renters should take note.

Unit very well equipped. Great location, wonderful vibe with the Iron Man competition on.
Jan M. April 8, 2016
We found the property management staff very helpful and always responded to the needs we had, quickly. We had to have maintenance come up to the room 2 or 3 times for a couple of problems.
Laura M. January 3, 2016
Very noisy neighbors in hotel next door - internet did not work - I was told not to talk on my cell phone while on the lanai but the people who work at the condo can talk on their phone while cleaning the grill - would not stay there again nor would i reccommend

We spent a very enjoyable 12 nights at this lovely condo. The condo was very comfortable, nicely decorated, and well equipped. It was so peaceful sitting on the lani drinking Kona coffee and watching the Dolphins swim right off the shore. The complex is beautifully landscaped and the pool area and ocean lounge are are very nice. The residents are friendly and sunset is a social gathering on the waterfront. The only negative is the long list of rules especially at the pool. Children under 2 are not allowed in the pool and the hours are 9 to 9. There is a lovely spa that would be nice to use later in the evening after dinner. The location is also great because it is close to town, restaurants and shopping.
Elizabeth D. February 29, 2016
The Condo grounds were very well kept and beautiful; however the Condo itself needs some updating. ex: carpet must be replaced or need stretching and cleaned. The kitchen needs some work as well. Overall we enjoyed our stay in Kona Makai, but we will not stay in this unit in the future due to there's no elevator and we had to climb 3 flights of stairs with very heavy suitcases. We almost took my Mother(80 years old) on this trip and thank god she decided not to join us. This unit is not for the elderly (please be aware of the stairs).

We loved everything about Kona Makai and our 2 weeks in paradise. Most important thing is our condo was exactly as advertised and we would definitely stay there again.

we really enjoyed the condo .The location was perfect.the place was very quiet and we appreciate that.A very nice place to stay thank you
Anonymous December 31, 2013
Great place to stay! It was hard to get a sense of the place from pictures, but it was perfect for us. Clean, cozy, great for a 2 week stay. Best part: looking out to the ocean while drinking ocffee on the lanai. Worst part: a bit too long of a walk to get to downtown Kona(not bad at all for a 'worst part'. Also - the condo rules were not very family friendly (pool restrictions, noise restrictions). Best for adults only.

Superbe location. Wonderful unit. All what you dream for on vacation in Hawaii.

We loved our stay at Kona Makai 2 303. The place fit our needs and had a great view. We watched spinner dolphins as we ate breakfast on the deck! Jamie at the mgmt company was prompt and helpful. We wouls stay in this unit again.

I found this property through Trip Advisor - who I trust. The listing said $125 a night - so $480 for 4-nights. When all was added up is it ended up being $801.00 with Rent, Damage waiver fee, Booking fee, departure cleaning fee, and taxes. If this had been added in to the $120, we would have been fine with an honest amount. The property was very dated and needs cosmetic work. Needs a fire alarm. Loft AC doesn't work. No toilet paper. It was fine for us and we enjoyed our stay. We loved the grounds and pool and LOCATION!
Rent $ 480.00
DamageWaiverFee($49), BookingFee($17),
DepartureCleaningFee($135) $ 201.00
Taxes $ 82.52

I would definitely recommend this property. The property management company was excellent as I was sent the wrong code to enter the condo and they promptly [and I mean very promptly] responded to my call and settled the matter immediately. It is a beautiful location.
Joyce B. May 11, 2014
My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful, relaxing few days at this property. It was very well maintained and we had everything we needed as well as having a super, quiet location from where to watch the amazing sunsets. There was a good choice of restaurants,beaches and shopping within the area and a great place from which to explore the island. I would definately recommend it .

We only needed a short term rental that was centrally located, and this fit that bill. But we had trouble logging into the secure internet, and in this day and age where we are so dependent upon the internet for travel info, this made things a bit difficult. We also appreciated the welcome coffee, but it would have been nice to also have welcome coffee filters so we could actually make the coffee. It wasn't worth going and buying a big package of filters for only a couple of mornings of coffee.
