Our overall our impression was it was satisfactory, but not great.
Cleanliness: This unit was reasonably clean. We were concerned with a previous review of cockroaches and rodents. In 7 days we saw and killed two very large, but very slow cockroaches. That’s not much considering the tropical location and ground floor unit. We saw no evidence of any rodent problem.
Kitchen: Overall, the pots and pans were minimal and fairly beat up. The hand-operated can opener did not work at all. The toaster was cheap and it always took several tries to get the toast to stay down. The coffee maker was inexpensive, but worked well. The stove top was ok, but the oven had some rust on it and looked really dirty so we never tried it. The refrigerator worked fine, but the top of it had a lot of rust coming through the paint.
The living room is a mixed bag. The furniture generally looks nice. The coffee table is beautiful. The rattan sofa and matching chair look very nice, but there is hardly any stuffing in the cushions, so you end up sitting uncomfortably on partially hard surfaces after a few minutes. The glass table for dining is nice with a beautiful sea turtle stand and the chairs around this table are the only comfortable chairs in the unit. The south wall is all windows and a sliding glass door. The framework around the fixed window is heavily rusted and gross to look at. The sliding glass door moves with some effort, but it had no working lock, our lock was a piece of bamboo in the door track. The door screen is very difficult and it often jumped the track.
The ancient CRT television works; a flat screen TV with high definition is sorely needed. The cable service has a TV station guide of channels and upcoming shows; but it must be for some other city because they don’t always match. The owner provided a rusty DVD player. It had so much rust on it I was afraid to put my DVD in, but I did, and it worked ok.

This place was great. Our condo was nothing fancy, but definitely nice enough and we weren't in want of anything but a softer couch. The property manager was a pain. We felt like we were scolded several times for really trivial things like leaving our bikes on our first floor patio. Aside from his nagging, the place was great.

My wife was to accompany me but had business responsibilities that required her presence at home.
Upon entering Kona Isle B8 my disappointment over her absence turned into relief. Walking into the kitchen and on the cutting board were the unmistakable droppings of a rodent.
At this point my wife would have turned about face and exited, never to return.
Leaving in this manner she would have missed the infestation of cockroaches in this unit. I did not. The discovery made when the light was turned on for a mid-night visit to the bathroom. There were five that I counted; they were big and they were slow.
Rather than further ruin a mellow vacation vibe, I decided to stay the course with the rodents and roaches. It was uncomfortable but not deadly.
Otherwise the place was generally worn out. The sofa and seat cushions hardly cushioned anything. There was obvious rust on appliances and the specks on the light colored carpet looked suspiciously like rodent droppings.
I was not curious.
It is first floor (hence the roaches and rodents)and opens out to a nicely landscaped green courtyard. It was convenient to the pool and a man made beach.
The only way I would ever consider Kona Isle is if they paid me to stay in an uppper unit that has been well cared for.
Of course it would be single occupancy as there is no conceivable circumstance under which my wife would accompany me to Kona Isle condos.
