If you like a beautiful settings near the water and enjoy doing so in an old, dilapidated, smelly, outdated Motel, (yes, MOTEL) then this place is for you. Otherwise, don't waste your money, because I most certainly DID waste my money on this old, icky, motel. What a terrible disappointment. Nice people seem to inhabit the place, but geez...our "condo" had filthy carpets, a musty, gross stench, and toilets that did not work well. Everything is just worn out. Oh, and the condo did NOT sleep 4 as advertised. However, they did provide us a cot to allow one of our sons to sleep on. Seems as though the owners had not invested any monies into our condo for decades. Plus, as a bonus, the property is located right next to a busy road....meaning that road noises infiltrated the condo at all hours of the day and night. And, oh yeah, the master bedroom is located closest to the road. Good luck getting a good night's sleep at this place. Basically this place was just gross. Maybe other condos are nicer that the one we rented?? Who knows. I just know that I would NOT recommend you waste your money on this stinker. Yuck.

Property's Favourite Review
Had a fun week in Kona and was pleased with our accommodations at Aston KBS. The oceanfront location and sunset views were wonderful. The warm swimming pool & hot tub were greatly appreciated and enjoyed after a day of exploring. The resort is peaceful and the rooms are quiet. Get a 2-bed unit if you want the master near the lanai. The 1-bed unit has master near outside hallway so no view of ocean. Loved listening to the waves break on rocks at night. Highly recommend LaBourgogne, delicious French restaurant. ‘Da Best’ Mai Tai at Jackie Ray’s and sunset view at Don’s Mai Tai bar (the fish tacos are yummy too).

If you have a family, need two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a fully stocked kitchen and washer and dryer, right by the ocean, this is the place for you. If you plan on going into the ocean, there are nearby beaches. The property is right on the water, but as in may places on the Big Island, it's not sandy on the shore. It is also close (enough) to town, Walmart, Safeway, Costco, Planet Fitness (you'll nee a car, but way closer than other parts of the Island)

Owner must revisit all the rooms and inspect for cleaning. The tubs and toddlers cribs were very important and they were both pretty bad. Specially one of the cribs. Will not be coming back or recommend anyone with children

The staff, front desk clerk, maintenance and people that lived here were extremely nice. Everyone was very welcoming. The beach area, bbq area and pool were thoroughly cleaned everyday! I gave a poor rating because the room we stayed in 207 was in need of new floors(stained carpet throughout with a big blue stain and gum in the master bedroom), carpet coming up by the guest bathroom, kitchen cabinets need repairs, needed paint in almost every room, rusted fixtures in the master bath, rust on the ceiling by the air conditioner, need pictures on the walls where hooks were. NOT what I expected for the price!

Cannot say enough about the beautiful view from this unit! However, it is very run down - broken closet door fell on me, sink faucet broken, bathroom mirror broken, gross carpet. With an update, this would be fantastic!

It's a beautiful facility with great views, well equiped, large rooms, good WiFi. Kind of pricey for those of us from the midwest. The kids loved the pool. There's an adjacent sea water pool, which is great when the tides are high enough to fill it. The main business (tourist) district is close.
