This was our third time staying at the Kona Tiki in as many years, and we simply cannot say enough positive things about it. The location? There's nothing that compares to being literally right on the water, going to sleep with the sound of waves...More

Cute older place. Service is great. They really know Aloha here. Ocean front place close to a few beaches. Very limited parking available and really tough parking lot to navigate. Super quiet and peaceful at night.

There were toys and gear people had left. I don't recall any boogie boards though. There is a Walmart a short trip away. We did not use the wifi but heard it was best near the office.
