Kona Makai Resort is a direct oceanfront resort on Alii Drive about 1 mile south of town. An easy walk for most. Also a trolley shuttle stops out front.
The complex features oceanfront swimming pool and jacuzzi, tennis courts, BBQs, lots of lounge chairs by the ocean, and great snorkeling. There is also a small gym with equipment, ping pong table. Nice lawns and tall palms and tropical flowers.
Our unit is top (3rd) floor, with 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath, full kitchen, view balcony
This is a nice oceanfront condo complex. Many people come here year after year!
There is a shuttle bus stop out front, that goes between Kailua-Kona and Keauhou several times a day. We do recommend a car for driving the island and from the airport about 20 minutes away.
