About Kyle Cunningham

Owned and operated by Mountain and Oceanfront Properties - John and Margie Bartleman. Managed by our son, Kyle Cunningham.

We are from Chicago originally and hated the cold weather so we decided to buy a condo in a warmer climate located in a paradise location helped too.

Kyle Cunningham purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kyle Cunningham chose Kailua-Kona

John and I always walked by this complex on the way to town and loved that it had an elevator and air conditioning. We wanted to buy a condo in the Kona Reef resort for many years, but very few condos were for sale with full ownership, rather than most of them being a leasehold property.

The grounds are very well maintained with a BBQ area, spa, oceanfront pool and a white sand beach right next door. We loved that there is covered parking and it's only 1 block walk to town! This a true location, location, location property.

What makes this condo unique

Elevator to our 2nd floor (unlike other units in Kona Reef that the elevator doesn't go to their floor), Air Conditioning, Oceanfront, Beach, 1 block to the town of Kailua-Kona and all it has to offer. Side unit with side windows that make this unit have a lovely breeze! 50 inch 3D HDTV with surround sound, totally updated with all new furniture, appliances and much more! Also the 'little extras' that all our properties come with. Coolers, beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, spices and cookbooks!

Loved the view and location

  • 5 of 5

The view was spectacular, seen dolphins swimming while drinking my morning coffee. Location was great close to the town. The owner was very responsive. The only thing that would have been nice was sheets for the air mattress and maybe more condiments like sugar syrup and ketchup. Would definitely recommend it and would go back.

Wonderful view, great price, poor condition and service.

  • 3 of 5

Great views & air flow! Condo is still not in very good shape. Broken kitchen faucet so we had no water to do dishes for the first two days. Then no effective internet service. The only one availble to respond to our issues wasn't on cable account to get it resolved. So no internet for 2 weeks. Half of the shower water comes out the tub faucet giving a low pressure shower. Beetle and maggot found in front of sink crawling under sink. Food crumbs in couch and carpet is pretty dirty. They desperately need instructions on how to use audio visual system. No manager availble to resolve issues. Only got 2 rolls of cheap toilet paper for two weeks so we ran out. We were informed there rental only comes with a starter kit. Lol I would say the price, location, view and air flow make up for the negatives but I do what people to understand the trade offs. I really wanted to give them a good review but there was just to much that want taken care of. We also had trouble getting the check in information and codes in time.

Nice location but not well maintained.

  • 3 of 5

Nice condo location but unit not well maintained. WiFi not working, causing data issues for me. Tv very complicated to operate and no instructions. A/C too high to reach and no remote and no ladder. Sliding doors to patio need service.

Water supply in kitchen needed repair during our stay.

Horrible property manager and condo

  • 1 of 5

Do not stay here! The amenities they advertise either don’t work or are far from the description give. 1) the property manager never gave us check in instructions. Fortunately we caught the cleaner running late that let us in. 2) cleaner was running late because dryer is broken. 3) TV is burned out- Black bar across middle section. 4) Internet is so bad you a) can’t use the WiFi they say they offer b) can’t use the Netflix they offer c) can’t use the cable they offer. 5) the furniture is broken and damaged, there’s mildew in the bathroom, horrible paint job where they tried to cover spots with the wrong color, the ceiling is falling down in places, and the sliding door and screen door are broken. 6) when we told them about these issues they never fixed them and tried to blame them on us, threatening to keep our deposit to cover the damages even though we told them about them day 1. 7) they also criticized us for wanting to use the ammenities they listed in their posting- saying that we shouldn’t use the washer/dryer, Internet or TV. 8) even when we tried asking for the check out instructions they refused to send them to us, instead giving us more sass and attitude.

This was a true nightmare and I hope no one rents from them.

Owner's Response: I wish we could warn other Vacation Rental Owners to BEWARE of this guest as they are scam artists so I would recommend to not rent to this person. I hate to say something bad about one of our guests, but they did nothing but complain since the moment they arrived. We did provide them with the check-in codes and instructions. We tried to accommodate this you, but you expected everything to be corrected immediately and if not just continued to complain. Our on island contact, who is one of the sweetest and nicest people I know, tried at lengths to help you and resolve your issues but it seemed all you to wanted to do is complain and setting your whole stay up to complain and demand a refund. We have gotten many great reviews, and have had many happy and repeat guests, but some people just could not be satisfied and nothing we did was good enough to satisfy you from the moment you checked. When you informed us the dryer was not working our maintenance person checked it out and had to order a part to fix it, and in Hawaii things can take much longer to get delivered if the part is not in stock on the island which was the case in this situation. You even expected to have an unlimited supply of toliet paper supplied for your entire stay. Then after you stay in our condo you have the nerve to call your bank and tell them to reject payment and to get your money back. You are a scam artist and I hope no other vacation rental owner has to deal with you or all your complaints. We do are best to help our guests out when there are problems we are notified of, but some people cannot be satisfied at all. We have many charming guests and get a lot of repeat guests. I believe your plan all along was to get a FREE vacation stay by complaining continuously and then call your bank to issue you a refund on your credit credit card. It is like going to the grocery store and buying your groceries and eating all of them, then complaining you did not like them and demand a refund after you ate all the food. I believe maybe staying in hotels from now on would better suit you.
