The best way to get around the Big Island is to rent a car. There are bike rentals in town as well as a local shuttle bus that can get you to and from downtown Kona and the condo. There are even bus tours that can be taken to various areas of the island. There are shuttle buses that will take you from the airport just down the street from the condo for about $40 a person. I recommend this if you're traveling alone and don't plan on driving around a lot. There's so much to see and do on the island however a rental car is truly best.

Hi, we had a nice time staying at the condo. The condo was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything you would need (very few plates, cutlery, cups....). We recommend.

We were very pleased with our stay at the Royal Kahili! The condo was as advertised and as expected. Checkin was pretty easy except for the fact that "maps" in the iPhone brings you to a different complex about 1.5 miles short of the actual address, so be aware of that and double check the address your gps sends you to, to avoid some time scratching your head. I would say this condo is best for the traveler that needs a basic place to rest their head while they spend the bulk of their time venturing out to all that the big island has to offer... which is exactly what we were looking for (i.e., we didn't want to spend a lot on a room that we didn't plan on being in that much). We actually ended up spending more time at the condo that we anticipated and are still very very pleased with our choice.
The complex itself is a really nice perk. The pool area is pretty much brand new with beautiful plants, tile, retaining walls, bbq's, fire pit and clean pool and hot tub water, a friendly building manager and friendly full timers. We also felt very secure in the complex. There were no signs of riffraff and for the most part it is a very quiet complex. There is a wonderful beach access right across the street that several turtles visit daily to feed on the rocks. Cynthia was always responsive to my emails and texts leading up to our vacation... and once we were there, I didn't need anything that wasn't outlined in the "during your stay" materials. All in all, we had a fantastic time on the big island. Thank you Cynthia and Noah for offering us a perfect fit!
This is our second time staying at Noah and Cynthia's condo. Our experience was wonderful. The condo is a good location... close to downtown Kona, beaches, shopping, ect. The condo itself was clean and well stocked with towels and body boards.
We are considering coming back again next summer.
We had a great time staying at the condo and enjoyed the surrounding areas. Hosts were very responsive to emails, and the place was very clean. Nearby beaches are great, pool area is great, and the car parking spot is conveniently close to the stairs and elevator. Thanks very much!
Had a wonderful time visiting Kona. Condo was a great place to launch from and explore the island. It was wonderful to have access to coolers, boogie boards, beach umbrellas, snorkel gear and beach towels. The condo itself could use some updates and TLC but overall a very good value and great location. The pool and BBQ areas were recently updated and are a wonderful addition to the condo. The parking spot was also nice. Elevators handy for packing up groceries/beach equipment. Cynthia was a thorough, prompt and accomodating hostess. We would definitely consider staying here again:)
Great location! Very comfortable for two couples. The pool area was the best part of this condo. The ground keepers have done a fantastic job! The condo itself could use some updating. Although it is true that it has everything you would need, things are sparse. Very few plates, knives were terrible. Beds were slightly hard for my taste. But all in all, would happily stay here again as the condo did feel very homey, with some mild updates would be one of my favorite condos in the area. The condo was very clean and in perfect condition when we checked in.

We want nothing but a wonderful stay for all our guests because that's what we get to experience while booking through airbnb.

A great little shack for grabbing some of the best (if not the best) fresh poke in town. They have a couple tables outside this place is VERY popular so get there early for the best selection.Alii Dr # 101 Kailua-Kona HI 96740
A great beach for swimming, boogie boarding and snorkeling. This beach is also called Magic Sands Beach due to the nature of the sand, which can disappear when the tide is high.Alii Dr Kailua-Kona HI 96740
One of THE best snorkeling beaches on the island. Theres a break wall that keeps the larger waves out. Go in the morning for the clearest water and youll probably encounter sea turtles in the water!Alii Dr Kailua-Kona HI 96740
A great place to eat dine outside right next to the ocean especially on your first night when you dont want to have to think too much. Simple tasty fare. Nothing special but still yummy.5776 Alii Dr Kailua HI 96740
A great shopping center that includes restaurants and shops that sits in the center of downtown and right on the water!5744 Alii Dr Kailua HI 96740
This shopping center includes a movie theater, grocery store, drug store, health clinic, shopping and restaurants. Theres even a farmers market on certain days!Alii Dr Kailua-Kona HI 96740

Great Mexican food that sits on the second floor and is open air to the downtown area. Great place for drinks as well!5719 Alii Dr Kailua HI 96740
One of the best Luaus in Kona. Having been to almost all of them on the Kona side of the island, this has the best entertainment and food for the price. When youre in Hawaii you MUST see a LuauPalani Road Kailua-Kona HI 96740
