Private & modern hilltop home w gorgeous views & lots of space
Jessica M. from Newton Center, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2016 This property was exactly what my team was looking for. We were in Kona on business for the IRONMAN World Champs. This is our second year renting this property and I'm planning to secure for another year. The property is updated, modern, clean and beautiful. The pool is a major bonus. It comfortably sleeps 10 without having anyone sleep on couches. My biggest disappointment was that Boundless Hawaii had told me the entire property had been updated with air conditioning. I confirmed this meant all rooms and back private suites. This was not the case. One was not air conditioned entirely. The other air conditioning evaporation hose was disconnect above the garage roof causing a ceiling leak in the garage. The roof entry door was open upon arrival, so it was easy to connect and stop the leak. We were lucky to have someone handy on our staff as this would've been a major issue otherwise. This issue did cause damage to the ceiling roof prior to our arrival as we noticed it immediately. Otherwise, I was extremely happy. This was the only issue, and it did not ruin our stay in any way and will not deter me from returning.
Property Manager Response: Response from Boundless Hawaii LLC We are so sorry that you ran into this issue during your visit. This home was sold and took on new ownership. With that, there was a miscommunication about the air conditioning in the back bedrooms. We have now confirmed that there will be window AC units added to the back bedrooms. We sincerely apologize that this was not discovered prior to your arrival. We work with many partner services to help guests with any maintenance issues, that way a handy guest is not necessary. We will be happy to welcome you back to any of our homes next year, and please let us know if you discover any issues so that we can remedy it for you right away!
Jane S. from Ronaoke, VI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2016 We loved our rental. It was clean and had plenty of room for my family. I would love to stay in this house again and recommend it to my friends.We had a couple of problems that we noticed right away when we arrived. No iron, no grate for outside grill and the remote did not work very well for the large TV in the family room. There was also a note left at the house saying that the water would be turned off if the new owner did not switch the water bill to their name. This was a little upsetting and made me nervous. Unfortunately we arrived on a Saturday and the office was closed on the weekend, so we were unable to get the problems solved until the following Monday. Everything was fixed Monday morning except the TV remote which no one took care of.
Kim J. from Centralia, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2015 We absolutely loved this property and will stay here again when we come back. I do agree with some of the other reviews as far as the air conditioning in the one back room by the rock wall as there is not a lot of air movement but we made it work. We had coffee every morning looking at the ocean, enjoyed the pool everyday, explored the Big Island and finished our day watching the sunset from the fabulous deck before heading for dinner. Thank you for an unforgettable stay!
John B. from Dayton, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2015 Family of seven stayed for 6 days in early June 2015. Very clean, relatively new, large home in nice residential neighborhood with all amenities we needed. Kitchen was well stocked with tableware, pots, pans, appliances, etc and there was a good selection of condiments. Nice pool with automatic cleaner and plenty of pool toys. It was nice that there were beach towels available for use and a washer and dryer to do laundry. The back room behind the garage needs an AC unit. There is no breeze to allow ventilation and the fan is only a token addition to the room. Be aware that turning outside lights on at night will attack bugs and you will see a few geckos roaming about (even one or two inside the house). We had one issue with the AC in the main house but the management team responded and it was quickly resolved. Location provided easy access to downtown Kona (3 miles), the airport, coffee plantations, macadamia nut farms (30 min), and volcano national park (2 hours), K-bay for snorkeling/kayaking (20 min). The binder with area activities was a good resource.
Reviewed by: Koji F. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 Our stay at Ali'i Makai exceeded our expectations. Views were spectacular. The kitchen was very well stocked with pots, pans, tupperware, cooking utensils, spices, [plates, bowls, cups], coffee-making materials, etc. (more and better amenities than the typical rental which made cooking very easy).
A guest from Nanaimo, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in February, 2015 We had a great time despite some minor inconveniences. We were a little upset that there was no hot tub on the property. On the VRBO listing it states that there is one and that is half the reason we rented this house. The views are spectacular and it was great to have our own pool and BBQ. The set up of the house is a bit strange and will not work for everyone. There are 2 bedrooms that are not attached to the house at all, one of them is at the back of the house and quite isolated from everything. It worked out okay for us, but was not ideal.
Louise A. from Limoges, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 We had a wonderful time on the Big Island and our stay at the beautiful home made it all even better. The property is amazing, the view and sunsets are incredible, 3 of the 4 bedrooms are just what we dream of, the 4th is nice but nothing like the 3 others. The property I give it 6 out of is that nice.....:)
A guest from Roscommon, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in November, 2013 We had a wonderful vacation and this house was lovely. Returning to our home away from home at the end of the day was always something we looked forward to. Being able to watch the area wake up in the morning and see the sensational sunsets at night while looking over the Pacific ocean around the pool area will always be treasured.Our reservation was made prior to any reviews being written and now that we've stayed at Alii Makai, we understand some of the confusion renters have with the layout of the could be very helpful to post a layout of this home with your listings. The photos are accurate, but give no indication of which bedrooms are in the main house and which are external to the house.We learned that 2 bedrooms are part of the main house and one is quite small and an ordinary bedroom with a bathroom that was not attached. The other bedroom suite and attached bath inside the main house was quite spacious.The main house has AC. A 3rd spacious bedroom suite is separate from the main house, looks out to the pool area; this unit does not have AC but the ceiling fans and breeze made it fine for us. The entertainment room as pictured appears to be a separate room, but is actually part of this bedroom. There is a 4th bedroom suite (which we did not use), referenced in previous reviews, that has ceiling fans and no AC. It is separate and against the back stone wall and has the reputation for being too hot to sleep in at night and noisy. AC would make it usable. This is a fabulous house and I would expect all details to be attended to. Other issues:1)sandy window sills that hadn't been cleaned because the shades hadn't been opened 2) we emailed ahead to see if the house had hairdryers. It didn't and two were quickly purchased 3)Information on how you'd like garbage and recycling to be handled for longer stays would be helpful. We learned on our own that recycled items need to go to one of the transfer stations. Staff was attentive.
A guest from Chicago, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 The home was all we epected. It was very well equipped from the kitchen to the laundry room. Everything we needed was provided. Only set back was that we paid for air conditioning but the 2 tangent bedrooms did not have a/c which was very uncomfortable for the person in the back bedroom since there was no circulation at all. when you pay for a/c, it should be in all rooms. Suggestion is to place a separate a/c unit in each tangent bedroom. Other than that the home was beautiful and the sunsets were great. Thanks.
Geoff B. from North Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013 We stayed at this property Aug 12-20 loved every minute of it. The house was amazing and fit our group of 8 perfectly. We had two kids and 6 adults ranging from 3-72 and we all had a great time. The view was amazing and we enjoyed sunset nightly. We took our family Christmas pictures with the sunset as our backdrop. The house was so big that we missed the extra room on the back of the house until we were almost done with our stay. The kitchen was perfect for our family as well. The only suggestions would be to heat the pool slightly and to have a Jacuzzi. But, those are minor things and do not take away from our stay. We loved being able to wake up whenever we wanted and make our own meals vs wasting money at restaurants. The house was a short drive to the beach and not within walking distance, but that was not an issue either. We cant wait for our next trip to Hawaii and know it will be just as amazing and relaxing as or first trip. The staff was helpful and allowed us to check out later than normal which was great. Our flight wasn't until 11:00 pm so being able to check out around 6:00 was very helpful. Once again, best, most relaxing vacation ever for us. We have been to the Caribbean and stayed at all-inclusive resorts and didn't enjoy our time as much as we did here.
Brenda C. from Severn, Maryland recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in July, 2013 The house was gorgeous. Very happy with the condition of the house and the kitchen equipment was in great condition. Only complaint was that the 4th bedroom in the back of the house needs air conditioning, does not get tradewinds and a few of the nights were very hot/humid. My son had to sleep on the couch in the main house during those evenings, acceptable, but not ideal (especially for the price). The view was magnificent from the lanai and we watched the sun dip into the ocean every evening. Splendid!
Beautiful view, just needs air conditioning or fans
Noel L. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 This house is beautiful and the view is amazing. The one thing it really needs is either air conditioning or fans for use in the rooms that are not in the main house. The two suites that are separate from the main house can get very warm, especially the suite in the back of the house. We could not even sleep in that room during our stay. if you opened up the doors during the day you were eaten by bugs at night and there is no air flow along the back. The other one opens up into the pool area with large screen doors, so that really helped. Also there is no indoor seating at a table, only bar seating. I recommend you buy mosquito coils or spray to use in the lanai area at night since that is where you will sit and eat or enjoy the sunset. It would be nice to have indoor table seating for playing games in the evening of eating inside.
A guest from Lake Forrest, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in January, 2013 Eight of us rented this home for a week and really enjoyed our stay. The home is new, spacious and lovely. The pool was too cold for us to swim but added a nice ambience to our time relaxing on the patio. The view of the ocean was spectacular and we were able to see (with binoculars) whales from the patio. Our only issue with the house was the fact that 2 of the bedrooms are not air conditioned. That was not mentioned in the home description. It was fairly cool at night but not always as comfortable as we would have liked. There are ceiling fans everywhere which helped. One of the bedrooms is near the large AC unit for the house and, combined with the proximity to the highway, was a bit noisy at night with the windows open. Maybe minor issues...overall a very enjoyable stay.
