Set along Kona's notorious black lava shoreline, Aston Kona by the Sea opens up to stunning views of the Pacific, creating the backdrop for a dream Hawaiian Vacation. In a popular location for snorkeling and surfing, this condominium resort is within ideal proximity to must-do Kona activities, while still offering a serene retreat with its tropical landscaping and sandy lounge area beneath breezy coconut trees. Additional on-site amenities include a saltwater pool, jet spa, barbecues, WiFi internet access, and meeting room/reception space available to rent.
It was a wonderful unit and the location is great. Unit 106 was perfect. Listening to the sound of the ocean and watching the sunsets from the lanai were great. This unit had all of the beach extras which was really great.the picture was taken from the unit. Thanks again for a great stay.
Location, Comfort, Well-Equipped, Nicely Furnished, a Trifle Dated, and a View
In Kona for business for a couple of nights, the Aston Kona was was perfect. Read on for details.
With a coastal location, the AKbtS has a lot to offer if you are looking for a condo. My one bedroom/two bathroom had everything I needed. The kitchen was one of the best equipped kitchens I have ever seen in a condo. The balcony offered a solid ocean view. The furniture and fixtures were a mix of dated and updated. The stacked washer/dryer was a nice touch, as was the dishwasher. The parking is free and the WiFi solid.
You bet I'd return.
Good for families
We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom suites and overall it was pretty good. It definitely feels dated with dark brown shag carpet and the cabinets are worn where they have taken lots of use. It was a well furnished kitchen with a full sized fridge, microwave, toaster, and coffee pot. We didn’t cook so I didn’t notice if it had a stove/oven. The views out of the ocean view condos were stunning, and we kept our sliding doors open almost the entire time to take advantage of them!
The pool was nice with plenty of chairs and tables. The hot tub wasn’t working during our stay. The beach is not kid friendly as it is a very rocky shore break. There is a protected area where some people were swimming but we didn’t venture down to it.
The downside: the master bedroom and the living room are separated by sliding panels with slats in them. It allowed for no sound barrier between the 2 rooms, and with kids that get up early, it was literally like having the kitchen in your bedroom. We could clearly hear the coffee brewing from bed.
Overall, we would stay here again if the price is right.
I would highly recommend this property. I had a challenge with my dates and the property was very accommodating and willing to help. I will definitely book with them again on my next visit to the island!
Lovely Setting and Great for a Relaxing Hawaii Get - Away
We stayed for two weeks and couldn’t have asked for a better property or location. Easy parking and the property was well kept. The orientation of the buildings is to be noted. The building runs almost parallel to the ocean, allowing all units with partial to full ocean views. The pool and sand area were updated with new furniture and we used the barbecues to prepare evening meals.
