Aston Kona by the Sea
- What's Included
We enjoyed this place tremendously. The condo was clean and beautiful. We had a car and enjoyed the farmers markets, coffee plantations, beaches and more. We cooked 80% of our meals in a well stocked kitchen. Sea turtles where 50' from our balcony. We would stay here again without a doubt if we choose this side of the island again. No issues at all.
Stayed here during the final week of our one month tour of Hawaii. This is a condo complex, so each unit is individually owned, but it is operated more like a hotel than a condo. The staff are very helpful, and accommodating. There are 86 units, with approximately 65 in the rental pool, approx 30% have two bedrooms, the rest one bedroom. Most units have either a direct view of the water or a fairly good partial view. Each unit has a fully equipped kitchen including, coffee maker with daily coffee, microwave, stove/oven, dishwasher plus it includes a washer, dryer, safe, two full bathrooms and wifi. The place is fairly quite with a pool, hot tub, and a sandy beach area beside the pool and 3 barbecues, but no fitness facility. There is also public access beside the building that leads to a public salt water pool that is continually filled with the incoming surf and even has some fish in it. However it is not maintained and can get very iffy to swim in if the surf is not active. The sea water comes right up to the protective water wall with lava rock all along the shore so not really swimmable but many locals do surf right in front of the place which is entertaining. With a 2.5 to 3 mile walk you can reach the main shopping, restaurant area of Kona. Lots of walkers, joggers, bikers etc along the way to keep you company. We really liked the place and will definitely return.
We stayed in a 2 bed 2 bath apartment with side views of the ocean, and i could not fault the complex or our apartment. It was clean, neat and updated inside and out. Being on the side i was a bit worried about ocean views but i couldn't believe what a wonderful view of the ocean we had. The swimming pool was clean and we enjoyed using it often. It was a bit of a walk to the main shopping area which is on the same road as the apartment, ( maybe 30 to 40 min walk). We loved the quiet location but not isolated to the point that it's too far too walk. I will be coming back here again.
We are a family of five,including three teens. Teens go to bedlam and it doesn't help at bedtime when the doors separating the master bedroom from the living area, is a louvred sliding door. Louvre doors let in a lot of sound and light.Our toilet had to be fixed twice...blocked and wouldn't flush....yuck.The best thing about this place was the location and the recliner chairs.
If you are looking for a place that is very chill that is also near town this is your place. There is no beach but there is a sandy area right on the water. The grounds sit on the ocean and the views are great! There is a nice pool area and some barbecues on the beach to use. The rooms we rented were great and very clean. We were able to cook some meals and save money. Kona coffee in the morning on the deck was priceless. I would totally stay at this place again!
