Aston Kona by the Sea
- What's Included
We really enjoyed our stay here. We stay in a similar type condo in Maui, so we felt at home. The condo was well equipped with most necessities (some ziploc bags or plastic portable containers would have been helpful.)Best of all air conditioning. Yes the units are air conditioned which helps one sleep at night. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the whole unit very spacious. We spent a good amount of time out on the lanai as I we just could't get enough of the surf - which changes every day. They do have underground parking - maybe a dozen spaces - and if you come in at a reasonable hour, you should have no problem finding a spot. There is plenty of above ground parking as well.There is a liquor and deli store within walking distance and a market place just across the street. You could potentially walk to downtown Kona, but it would be quite a walk, in the heat, on the side of a very heavily traveled road. I would recommend driving and parking outside of town a bit, and then walk in. And this is coming from an avid hiker/walker.This condo is in a great location and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We didn't use the pool, hot tub, or BBQs, but we saw many people utilizing the facilities. In addition, this is a great place to watch the sunset. We were completely satisfied with our stay and would not hesitate to book this property again. The wi-fi was good and strong and they have a DVD rental (like Redbox) on site.
The property was ocean front. The condo was very comfortable and clean! Kitchen was fully equipped and bedding was comfortable. East access to all shopping, activities and pier. I strongly recommend this place for stay! Staff were very helpful when we wanted a late check-out
Our family of four stated here and really loved the location, not far from Kona, right on the ocean with incredible views, and very comfortable accommodations. The staff is WONDERFUL, friendly, and helpful. The one downside is that the bathrooms feel a bit on the worn side and could be upgraded. Would have preferred tile floor throughout the unit instead of carpet. But loved the a.c.! Was great to be able to spread out, have breakfast in our room, and have a home away from home.
We stayed here with our preteen son. It was a perfect condo for a family with one child (could accommodate one more child). One bedroom with king bed and master bath, and another room with 2 twin beds and another bath. Note that master bedroom connects to living room with sliding doorsBest part is the lanai overlooking the beach. Great to hear the waves and you see the sun set on the water. Gorgeous view!Note that the beach isn't sandy but rather black rocks, but the property has a small pool and jacuzzi if you enjoy swimming.The kitchen is Ok, but there didn't appear to be many implements for cooking so,if you were to p,an on cooking dinner, ask ahead to see if the proper utensils are there.Linens and towels (including beach towels) are included, and one serving of coffee (enough to make a pot), dish soap, dishwasher soap and laundry detergent were included, which was nice.Didn't appreciate the $12 mandatory resort fee. Includes wifi and free DVD and Xbox game rental. Our preteen couldn't find any games he liked or that were appropriate for him of the only dozen available to the condo complex. Wifi should be free.The condo complex is well situated close to downtown.
Last summer we stayed at Aston Mahana in Maui, so when looking for a condo to stay in a few nights in Kona after visiting the Hilo side, I checked into available Aston property condos. I e-mailed the property directly and received a same day response about cost for travel dates we were considering and promotions available. I'm glad we chose an upgrade to oceanfront, as we had a spacious lanai and enjoyed the morning view (I attached pictures). Our condo was on the 4th floor. While the condo had noticeable upgrades, it was not as modern as the condo we stayed in at Aston Mahana. However, we were pleasantly surprised how spacious the condo was. The bedroom is separate from the living area, the two full bathrooms are large, a large entrance hallway and spacious layout provide enough room that a second couple could sleep in the living room. Wal-Mart is close by and where we bought breakfast food and snacks. We went both nights to Ali'i Drive for dinner and had no problems parking in the same parking space or close to same spot when we returned. We appreciated how efficient the check-in and check-out staff were. We were checked in and out in less than five minutes. Our only concern was having to go through the parking garage to get the elevator to go up to the 4th floor. While a key is needed to push the elevator button, I wasn't comfortable, esp. at night, going to/from the car or loading/unloading the luggage from the car without my boyfriend present. Walking the hallways outside the condo and the parking areas are separate from where the lobby and pool (traffic) areas are. Due to being an oceanfront property in a convenient location, I will recommend Kona by the Sea to those visiting Kona area.
