(2013) Yes the location is nice, but you would think with he yearly bad reviews on the testy attitudes of the office staff that either the staff would see the light or management would change what they need to change. When the four of us stayed there we had read the reviews and were aware of the possible irritable staff...

The Kona Billfisher is a small owner managed timeshare and is unique in that our fractional ownership period is one month and a large percentage of our owners return to our units every year. The Trip Advisor reviews are more than 10 to 1 complimentary of our facility, staff, location and amenities. Our towels are the best quality available, therefore...

We stayed 11 days at the Billfisher in T3, a 2 bedroom, third floor unit. We did not have a view, but that was fine. As long as you aren't looking for a big resort feel, this is a great place. I like the idea of having breakfast in the room and the ability to pack a cooler for lunch....

My wife and I stayed six nights October 6-12 on an exchange through RCI. We were very pleased with Kona Billfisher. We were in unit M-3 which is on the third floor with an island view. We liked that unit as it gave us privacy where our main windows were. Billfisher is a great location as everything in downtown Kona...

We have stayed here twice and have loved it. Every night we just walk across Alii Drive and have cocktails and watch the sunset. Romance at it's finest! We stayed on the 3rd floor which has a loft and very high ceilings making the place very roomy. The unit was on the end, overlooking the pool and we never heard...

On site parking, laundry, pool & BBQ grills. Unit includes pool noodles, beach chairs, boogie board & mats, but not beach towels. Full week rentals only. For those who want to cook-shop the farmers market...

Love the location of the Billfisher! It's not waterfront, but across street from ocean. Located on busy Alii Drive, but street is easy to cross. It's a fast and easy walk to Kailua Kona where all types of restaurants and shops are located. Pool is large and very clean, as is bar-b-que area which has several gas bar-b-ques and tables/chairs....

Booked 1 BR (King + 2 person pull out couch) through RCI and called 10 days prior to stay to request top 3rd floor/mid complex unit 3W (no elevator). Vaulted ceilings & ocean views from balcony in quiet location closer to the warm pool, clean bathrooms & laundry room with change & soap machines made it a wonderful stay! A/C...

Our time here was just fine, we had a one bedroom full kitchen unit. It was clean, plenty of room for the two of us. Storage and some beach stuff to borrow. Highly, recommend this resort. Negative are the dryers didn't dry the clothes well and the unit air con was noisy.

Individually owned condos, but managed by onsite manager. Great location with short 5 min. walk to Kailua Kona, and across the street from the first class Royal Kona Resort. Don't miss the Luau at the Royal Kona Resort. Service was poor, and few amenities. Best shopping at Farmers Market for food and reasonably priced gifts. Also, don't miss the history...

The Kona Billfisher is a small, friendly owner managed timeshare apartment complex. Our goal is to provide a clean, attractive Hawaii vacation home for our owners and guests. Because of our small size, we are unable to provide extensive services beyond check-in and midweek linen service. Over 90% of our apartments have an ocean view or garden view and our...
