    This place has it all! It was centrally located next to lots of shopping, food, beaches and the harbors for water exertions. We stayed here for 6 nights. Katt was amazing to work with from the time our reservation was made and throughout our stay. She was quick to respond with any questions we had.

  • Great location in the heart of Kona


    We stayed here 17 nights while I was working remotely during the weeks and on "vacation" on the weekends. This unit has been renovated and it's pleasant to stay here. There was plenty of internet bandwidth for video conferencing or streaming Netflix, Hulu, etc with your own Roku or Fire TV. Probably the best thing about this unit is the location. There are tons of restaurants and bars within a short walk. There's even beaches and snorkeling within reach without driving. Summary:Pros -- great location right by the 200 year old church. - bbq grill on the fourth floor with a great view of the water and the church. We used this almost daily for lunch and only saw another person once. (We grilled for lunch on Pacific time so it was around 9am). - recently renovated unit with nice bathroom and kitchen- the owner is VERY responsive and was amazing to work with the few times we experienced minor issues. - the unit is nicely equipped with all the kitchenware and bathroom supplies most people would need. - central air in this unit is much better than window A/C units that only cool one room and are noisier. The central air went out twice during our stay but the owner was able to get the condo complex to fix quickly both times. Cons:- there's really no view from this unit. I mention this because for this price range a view of the ocean is available. A colleague of mine stayed in another Kona Plaza unit in the same floor and had a decent view for about $40 less per night (his unit was otherwise not as nice, however). - if you are working remotely, you may need to supply your own desk and office chair as the furniture in the unit is not really suitable for this purpose. It was no big deal for me as I keep an office chair and folding table (I use for a desk) in offsite storage between trips. - water pressure in the shower could be a bit stronger, but it was not too bad. - small main TV (for the space) that was difficult to view in the daylight. No big deal because who goes to Hawaii to watch TV? But I mention because it's an easy fix. - no tv in the bedroom. Again no biggy, but an easy fix and available in most other units at this price point.
