About Amber Walker

My name is Amber and our family has been visiting Kona since I was a little girl. My grandparents have owned this unit since the late 70s and now our family's children get to enjoy coming here just like we did when we were young.

When we visit we especially love going to Makalawena beach (worth the hike!), Keiki pond (behind the aquatics center), tide-pool exploration, perusing the shops, Magic Sands, Kahaluu beach/snorkeling, kayaking to Kealakekua Bay with dolphins, and Hawi town.

When we are not relaxing in Kona we reside in Washington. I enjoy speaking with renters and helping them to discover Kona.

Amber Walker purchased this condo in 1978

Why Amber Walker chose Kailua Kona

My grandparents first fell in love with Kona in the late 60s. During their first trip they stayed at the classic Kona Tiki hotel, still in operation just down the street from the Alii Villas condo complex. At that time, Kailua was a very small town with only 2 hotels (The Kona Inn, once a large, grand hotel turned the rooms into shops in the early 70s.) and no traffic lights. Quite the sleepy hawaiian village!

After visiting for about a decade, they bought at the Alii villas because the unit's view is unsurpassed. Looking north into Kailua Bay and west out to sea, it offers the best shoreline and ocean/sunset views!

What makes this condo unique

One of my favorite rituals is to go walking on Alii Drive early in the mornings. The air is cool, yet it's sunny. You can smell all the tropical flowers!

Our location is very convenient to shopping centers, beaches, and even just to putter through the shoreline access trails near home. There is so much to do right from the condo, even if you didn't rent a car!

What a great apartment.
To be so close to the water with a great view and the sound of the sea to send you to sleep at night was perfect.
The apartment had everything we needed, (including snorkelling gear and boogie boards !) and the 2 bedrooms were just right for the 4 of us (2 kids).
Kona town is 10 min walk away and very relaxed with lots of cafes and bars.
Beaches are a bit further away, but they do have turtles and lots of fish to swim with !
The apartment pool is a great size and very nicely set out.

The Best

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I were in Kona just this last April, we had such a great time and so thoroughly enjoyed staying in this condo we've made plans to go back in October. It's a really wonderful place, peaceful and airy. We spent hours on the lanai watching spinner dolphins playing close to the shoreline. It might not be obvious, but just steps from the condo there are a couple of places to access the ocean and go for a swim or a snorkel. And what's really nice is your provided with just about anything you didn't even think you'd want, for instance binoculars! You won't need to drag your fins, mask and snorkel along on your trip, there is actually a decent selection. Lots of good snorkeling spots in the vicinity and if you like Poke, you'll be happy to know The Poke Shack is not too far away (on Alii Drive also). So you really can't beat the value, it's like a home away from home, comfortable and cozy and I really don't care if I ever stay anywhere else. Highly Recommended!

This was our fourth stay at this condo, which truly is ON the water. We come to Kona every year to visit our son who moved here a few years ago. We stayed for almost 3 weeks this year. After researching many other condos when we first visited and renting another one a few years ago, we were very pleased to find this wonderful unit, which is very reasonably priced for the incredible view and excellent location. We know we're in paradise when sitting on our lanai watching the whales and dolphins breaching in the morning or the beautiful sunsets in the evening. The grounds of the Alii Villas complex are very well maintained, including the beautiful vegetation and the pool area. The neighbors in the complex are quiet and friendly, and our unit is far from Alii Drive , so we don't hear any noise from the road. The only sounds are of the waves breaking right below the unit, which are so relaxing when retiring for the evening and so welcoming when rising in the morning. Even though we usually have a car available, we often enjoy the short walk into town in the morning for some Kona coffee and breakfast. We agree with the many positive observations and comments from the other reviewers. Amber, and previously Tawni, have been great to work with and very accommodating. We are looking forward to returning next year for a month and have already reserved this condo for a fifth year!

You will love the oceanfront views from inside and from the lanai!

  • 4 of 5
We spent 5 nights at this condo. The unit has absolutely wonderful views over Kailua Bay. We could see cruise ships, other boats coming and going- including the paddling canoes and on several occasions spinner dolphins. The Lanai was wonderful for relaxing and eating meals. It was quite warm while we were there- even the locals said so. The trade winds were rather still, so most days not much of a breeze. The unit was quite warm for sleeping, especially, even with the sliding doors open. But the overhead fans did help some.
This condo is very well stocked for a long stay. The kitchen is well stocked with lots of dishes, pots, pans, glasses, etc. There were even spices, oils for cooking, and plastic wrap for some leftovers! Also, there were plenty of beach toys, some folding chairs, beach mats, large and small coolers, snorkels, masks and fins, and even some sun screen. There is a spacious desk, including some desk supplies, for those who have to work- even while on vacation. However- there was no internet in the unit. We tried to find a connection and there were none to be found. So, a daily trip to Starbucks (or somewhere else) was required in order to take care of emails and some business.
The unit was clean and well maintained. The washer and dryer were nice to have in the unit. The parking space right outside was convenient, with the condo just up two flights of stairs. We also enjoyed the swimming pool which is quite large.
Overall, we enjoyed this unit very much. The owner was very responsive and quick to answer any inquiries. I would recommend this condo!

Incredible view, great owner to work with, and best stocked unit I've found!

This fantastic view unit came with everything I hope for in a well-stocked condo: books, binoculars, games, puzzles, 3 boogie boards, 3 beach chairs, mats, umbrellas, ice chests, and a kitchen stocked with air-tight sugar, rice, oatmeal, etc., plus spices beyond belief and nice olive oil, vinegars, etc. I'm not sure how much is left by each tenant (I left a great jigsaw puzzle, for example, and two mysteries) but the unit has what you need. I've stayed in other Alii Villa units, and this one is oceanfront, so the two bedrooms were perfect. I let my in-laws have the big room and took the small...and realized I could hear the ocean from my "back" room as easily as they could from the "ocean front" room.
My experience was great; Tawni was easy to work with and accommodated me buying an emergency tv (cannot miss Downton Abbey, now, can I?) after theirs gave up its tuner. My biggest issue was that their internet access was spotty, but I handled that once I got to know the neighbors. Speaking of neighbors...Alii Villas as a living, breathing, entity is one great condo complex. The people meet ocean front every evening and chat about the sunset: the bbque tables are in great condition and kept clean; the poolside chairs are brand new in 2013 (I know..I was in a different unit in 2012 in the same complex). The complex has not only the manager (Jack) but also the assistant manager and groundskeepers. In other words...the unit was great, the people are great, the ocean is great...and the granddaughter handling the rental (Tawni) was easy to work with and very professional.
