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

“I just wanted to thank you so much for writing the terrific reveal travel guides. My husband and I just returned from a 2-week vacation to Hawaii. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary. We used your guides on all four of the islands that we visited, Oahu, Maui, the Big Island and Kauai. They seemed to be written just for our travel style. Just us and a rental car. No tour groups for us! We have done and seen things only possible with the insight of your books. One night at dinner we were talking to the waiter who, was native Hawaiian. He had asked what we had done that day. We went through a litany of sights and experiences (one being swimming in a fresh water cave). He got a stunned look on his face and then gave me the greatest compliment. Though I don’t think he knew it was a compliment. He said, “Wow, you are more local than I am!” That was so fantastic to hear. I wanted to share that with you since your books helped us be “locals.” Thank you again so much for your fabulous books.”
