    says ‘Look No Further!’
    Absolutely top notch!
    From the initial contact to followup, this owner was spectacular. The home far exceeded our expectations for as little as we paid. The kitchen blew us away with all the amenities. Many rentals only include a microwave and hotplate. Not here! Top of the line built-ins, countertop appliances and utensils were all included. You could entertain in this place. We didn't eat out once, saving hundreds.

    Living and dining room were tastefully decorated and included a huge flat panel TV in the living room. I didn't even notice the flat screen in the bedroom until we were packing to leave.

    Extremely comfortable beds and also tastefully decorated bedroom and bathrooms.

    The lanai had complete living and dining sets to enjoy the sunsets. Solar power, washer and dryer, and a very secure feel is what you'll be welcomed with. Minutes from the airport and Kailua Kona Town. We will be back! Mahalo to the owner for the best accommodation we've ever had (and we've been around the world). If you're thinking about this home, look no more. You won't find a better deal.

    It had everything I needed and then some. Linens were clean. Kitchen was immaculate. Good ice maker. Washer and dryer in unit. Great view of ocean. Pool area spacious with ample chairs. Grounds were immaculate. Plenty of hot water. Smart TVs. Excellent grilling area shielded from rain and sun. Ample parking. Close to shopping and restaurants in walking distance. WiFi was more than adequate. I hope to come back.

    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    says ‘A Tremendous Sense of Place.’
    The unit is on a quiet rather secluded road with a peerless view of Maalaea bay and Haleakala. It is a short stroll to the harbour restaurants and light shopping. The unit itself is immaculate and decorated with furnishings and local Hawaiian art that give a sense of place so many of the Kaanapali hotels lack. A true winner.

    says ‘Wonderful Maui Condo!’
    This is the best place to stay on Maui! The lanai looking out on the ocean and beaches was our favorite place to hang and watch the ocean, people playing on the beach and in the water. We got a special treat as a group of sea turtles played in the surf in front of the condo.

    The condo is beautiful and tastefully decorated. The view from the master bed is incredible! Everything was there that we needed, all appliances modern. We loved snorkeling right out in front of the condo and saw everything from angle fish to needlefish. Lots of commerce across the street including snorkel shops and our favorite restaurant, the Cafe O'Lei. Highly recommend this wonderful condo!

  • Continuously Updated and

    Kailua Kona: Kona Bali Kai: Condo
    • 2 BDR
    • 2 BA
    • Sleeps 4
    • #74938
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    says ‘Sounds and Sights: Surf and Sunset’
    A well appointed 2nd floor condo barely 25 feet from the surf. The living room AND the master suite share the balcony over the water. We stayed over two weeks and each morning we were treated to turtles being tossed in the surf while they grazed for moss on the rocks below. The kitchen has everything we needed: we cooked all but one evening and ate after watching the sunset. The beds are very comfortable, and the white noise of the surf gave us consistently good nights sleep. The pool and jetted hot tub in the quad are clean and comfortable. A very pleasant and relaxing memory.

    Kailua Kona: Royal Sea Cliff: Condo in a gated community
    • 1 BA
    • Sleeps 3
    • #206036
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    says ‘Clean, Above Average, Good Value for the Money’
    Nice condo. Good amenities. Clean. Equipped.

    Owner was gracious and easy to work with. We had an air conditioning problem which affected the whole resort and I heard about it from the owner before I noticed the problem. With 70 to 80 degree temperature, a good fan, and prompt management attention to the problem including flying in parts we quickly got past all that.

    All housing in Hawaii is $$$ and the Owner Direct price was at the lower end. The "additional fees" common in Hawaii were among the lowest I looked at.

    One of the things we got used to was the free Kona coffee each morning. Think that we never missed it. For those that do not know, Kona coffee is considered some of the best in the world, not bitter, smells great and no stomach acidity.

    We used the condo primarily as a base for trips throughout the island. The condo is conveniently located in proximity to many Big Island treasures.

    Parking is very expensive in Hawaii. This unit came with free parking in any unmarked spot in the garage or the mini lots located near the condos. This condo is an end unit and I was able to park my car no more than 100 feet from the condo door. Down one flight and drive away, so convenient.

    The inside of the building is gorgeous, the plants are a tropical paradise. The desk people are helpful. There is a computer next to the front desk which you can use for free to print your airline tickets or whatever. Just bring a USB jump drive and move from your own computer or access internet to do your printing.

    says ‘Stunning home. Stunning location. Stunning. Stunning. Stunning.’
    The pictures of this home are excellent and convey the home beautifully. The feeling you have when you walk in the door and realize that everything is exactly as pictured, and the sense of home that you have immediately, is what is longed for in a holiday.

    We stayed in this wonderful home in early May and fell into the warm aloha at once. The rental process was excellent, the owner a pleasure to deal with. The directions supplied made the house an easy and stress free drive from the airport. The attention to detail is evident, from the home, to the pool, to the landscaping, to the very detailed introductory booklet covering all aspects of your stay in the home and the area.

    We toured the island, which was amazing. We enjoyed the surrounding beaches, shopping, cafes, etc, which was wonderful. We came home each night to our own personal very private oasis, which was spectacular. We played games in the great room, looking out over the pool and the city below. We swam under the stars to the sound of the waterfall, with the volcano feature casting a mesmerizing glow. We lazed on pool floats provided, under the warm Hawaiian sun. We sat quietly and reconnected, away from the distractions of the busy world. We embraced all that the house has to offer, physically and mentally. It was shear perfection.

    I would, without hesitation, recommend this home for family, friends, or couples stays.

    We spent 3 nights in the condo in late April. The complex was a nice walk from Kona town or an inexpensive cab ride from town. Well equipped unit and laundry which was useful coming off an 18 night cruise. Good outside area to have breakfast. Great value for money unit, with helpful owners who sent us plenty of information. We would be happy to stay there again.

    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    says ‘Wow, this is Paradise!’
    I went to Kailua Kona to take part in the Ironman and wanted somewhere quiet I could relax and prepare myself. This was the perfect place. Walking in the door and being greeted by the magnificent sea vista was just stunning.

    The apartment had everything I needed for my 2 week stay and was immaculately maintained. The apartments are close enough to walk into Kona if you wish, or catch one of the trolley buses that pass. (I did not bother with hiring a car)

    During the day it was quite cool to see a pod of Spinner Dolphins cruise past. The shoreline is only a 100 yards from your lanai. At night I joined others in the favourite pastime of sitting in a deck chair by the waters edge and watching the sun set with a cold beer.

    This is a stunning location. Nice and quiet and the owners a delight to deal with. I can't wait to return!!

We were happy that everyone was so friendly and were just like family, we met so many nice people. It was so nice to have the beach so close as the view was breathtaking.

    It was perfect for our family of 6. There were 2 folding cots for 2 additional people, but we couldn't figure out where those 2 cots could have been set up and still give some privacy to all. The owner responded quickly when one of the toilets was having some problems. Very comfortable home. What we appreciated the most was the washer/dryer, the free WiFi, and the beautiful deck/view. The owner was very nice to deal with; she responded to my questions quickly so we knew what to expect before arriving. We really appreciated being able to stay at her home. Thanks!

    We'll definitely be coming back to Maui and when we do we will be staying here again. It is simply the perfect place to stay in Maui. Beautiful, clean, very well equipped, quiet, sunset view, right on the beach, and right in the middle of the island so a short drive to anywhere on the island! The place was very easy to find, book, and there were absolutely zero issues with the entire process. Highly recommend!

    We loved staying at this condo in Maui! We walked across the street to lay on the beach or snorkel in the morning and watched the sunset on the lanai in the evening. Everything we needed was there and we were very comfortable. Thank you and we look forward to staying with you on our next trip to the island!

    says ‘Lovely Stay!’
    We had a wonderful time staying at this property. This property was everything it was advertised to be. It was large and spacious and there was plenty of room for our three adult children and ourselves. We enjoyed being on the main floor and the large wrap around lanai. The grounds of this complex are beautifully kept and we really enjoyed the peacefulness of sitting on the lanai enjoying the surroundings. We also enjoyed the pool. The stove and dishwasher in our unit did not work properly, but that was okay because I am not used to cooking on vacations and we usually went out for suppers! We would definitely consider booking this place again if we were to return to the Big Island. Thank you!
    Owner Comments
    Thank you for your wonderful compliments. We are thrilled that you and your family enjoyed your vacation with us. We appreciated you letting us know about the oven and dishwasher. These appliances were immediately checked out by a service representative and are now working properly for our guests.
    Mahalo,

    Our family of 4 adults stayed here and had a very enjoyable stay. The house was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and everything worked. The view from the front porch was as in the picture on the site. It was quiet in the community and this was a good location for exploring the island and so close to Kona- Kailua. We would stay here again.

    says ‘Pleasant and affordable.’
    As a first time user with Owner Direct I found the process simple and easy to use.

    After finding accommodation on the Owner Direct website I was put in touch with the owner of the condo that I had selected.

    The owner was very easy to deal with and always promptly replied to my emails. He is trustworthy, honest and very helpful.

    The condo was a little outdated, but the owner assures me that he is starting renovations later this year. The price was very affordable, as accommodation in Hawaii can be very expensive. It had a comfortable king size bed and a fully equipped kitchen.

    The condo is situated in a really good location within walking distance to Waikiki and the major shopping centre, Ala Moana. It is also in close proximity to the beach, major bus routes and many eating places.

    All in all it was a pleasurable experience and I would recommend this condo for it's affordability and location.
