75-5776 Kuakini Hwy, Kailua-Kona

Designed more like a hotel than a condo (but rooms are individually owned, so we’re calling it a condo), these basic rooms lack a full kitchen. Just a microwave, coffee maker and small refrigerator. Some units were in need of updating upon this visit. Bathrooms have showers only. They have a rating system from one to five. You may want to spring for a five and avoid anything rated from one to three. The number listed above is for the on-site rental agent. Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. Rooms (372 sq. ft.) are $129–$149 or cheaper if you stay two or more nights. Priced about what it’s worth. Some units require a cleaning fee.

What Readers Have to Say

“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Maui Revealed was our bible on our recent trip to the island and we have one well-thumbed, shave-ice-splattered, beach-sand-encrusted copy to prove it. I’m not a fan of most conventional guidebooks, but I enjoyed the conversational style and sense of humor of yours, as much as your unflinching reviews, insider tips, and on-target traveler’s‚ advice… Again, thank you for your wonderful text. It was the best $15.95 we spent on the trip.”
