|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
Imagine being surrounded by beautiful views, where you are on a lava point jutting into the surf. You can relax on the 3rd story private Lanai (balcony) and drift off to sleep to the sound of the waves in stereo. Or, you can drink your favorite beverage and watch spinner dolphins and whales.
From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by the ocean breeze and gorgeous views. The layout is romantic, with Japanese Shoji doors opened to expose the fabulous queen-size bed. From the master bedroom, the view is only of the ocean. The large screen cable TV is viewable from either the living room or can be rotated to be viewed from the bed.
The second bedroom, private with a set of twin beds (convertible to a king bed if needed), also has a panoramic view of the ocean, the coast, and Kona. And has its own private bathroom.
The kitchen, stocked with everything you need, except your groceries, is equipped to handle your gourmet meals and your blended tropical drinks.
The living room has comfortable seating, large screen LCD cable TV, wireless Internet access, Network Printer, DVD player, CD player, radio, movies, books, games and an excellent Big Island guide book.
For your convenience, there is a washer and dryer, and all the linens and things you need everyday.

We are very hard working people who like to take a nice vacation break in beautiful places like the Big Island of Hawaii. In comparison to a hotel stay we much more prefer spending our precious vacation time in a condo – especially a spectacular condo that has a private setting like this one. We just purchased this little slice of heaven and love to share it with our guests.
We strive to make your stay one of your most memorable vacations. The Kailua-Kona area of the Big Island offers more than you can imagine: From a very active island vacation to a quiet romantic time. Whatever you choose, it will be a nice break from a busy mainland life style.
We hope you value your time off as we do and will consider spending it as a guest in this spectacular condo with views and convenience not available anywhere else on planet!
Monika purchased this condo in 2011
For a surprise 50th birthday vacation last spring we rented this unit in Alii Villas and totally fell in love with it. Everything else we looked at didn’t even come close to the beauty, setting, views and privacy of this condo. The complex is beautifully landscaped and maintained, there is a heated swimming pool for the days you don’t want to master the ocean waves and a convenient BBQ is for “grill-master” dining. Or just sit out on the very private lanai. We knew this was what we wanted.
Alii Villas is very conveniently located one mile from downtown Kona... great for shopping, restaurants, and night spots. We can walk into town in just 15 minutes. A Farmer's Market has a great selection of tropical fruit, vegetables and souvenirs all at good prices. Best of all, the people are wonderful. Every day, you will find the wide bicycle/walking paths along Alii Drive active with many friendly folks.
All activities including snorkeling, surfing, swimming, outrigger canoeing and shopping are minutes away. In addition, Volcanoe National Park is amazing too, as is all of the Big Island.
The overwhelming reason we bought unit 334 of Alii Villas was for its location... absolutely the best. One unit from the ocean and on the third floor, it is very private. There is no direct hot western sun to overheat the condo. The unit is on a point so views from every window are literally “to the horizon”. The large lanai offers lounging, eating and reading with only the sound of the ocean. There are no human noises... no pool below or street noise... just the stereo sound from the ocean on both sides of the condo. Condos this close to the ocean are not built anymore. This is the ultimate in oceanfront!
In addition to spectacular views the condo is naturally air conditioned by the ocean breezes. The point location means all the air is conditioned by the ocean...perfect temperature! Open the windows and there is a perfect cross breeze too.
We love this place!
Again, location, location, location! Being one unit from the ocean end makes it a very private and quiet setting. There is only one other couple sharing the third floor. Amenities within the condo make your outings even more enjoyable. You will find amongst other things beach chairs, beach towels, snorkeling gear, a cooler and a travel guide to point out the best places to go.
Every activity including surfing, snorkeling, swimming, fishing, outrigger canoeing, kayaking, beach relaxing are literally from right in front of the condo (snorkeling, swimming and fishing access right below the lanai in the inlet seen in the photos).
In addition to being mesmerized by the beautiful ocean waves just below the lanai, short trips to the markets or walks up and down Alii Drive make staying here as convenient as one could imagine. Trips around the island to Volcanoe National Park or Hilo with its lush green gardens are easily accessible from this condo.
Thank you Monika and Joseph for sharing your lovely Hawaiian home with us. We all had a wonderful time and your place was a perfect spot to relax at the end of our very busy days. The kids kept us moving!
I still miss the sound of waves crashing as I fall asleep!
Thank you again!
Took my three grandchildren for 1 week. All three are graduating from high school this year.The condo is right on the ocean and if you like the sound of the waves this is the place. What a beautiful view of the ocean and sunset every night from the room. Condo was very clean and well stocked with everything you would need. Would go back again anytime. Thank you Joseph and Monica
I stayed with my wife and mother-in-law for 2 weeks.
When we arrived at the condo the first thing I did was jump into the ocean and this view and sound of the ocean was really fantastic(we still miss it!)
The first week was ironman week so there was lots of going back and forth to Kona to complete the last trainings and make the race preparation. So the location close to Kona came in handy.
My mother-in-law stayed on her own for quite some time, but didn't mind. She enjoyed the breeze to stay cool and enjoyed the scenery on the lanaii at his fullest.
The condo had lots of luxury and lots of stuff (even music, books, binoculars, boogie board,...)
This all contributed to a fantastic race (won by Frederic Van Lierde, also belgian :-)) and vacation.
Just got back from a week stay in Kona at this condo. The condo is everything the description say it is. Very nice, lots of ammenities, very clean unit and grounds. I would stay here again when in Kona and do recommend it. There are cheaper units available, but this was very nice with no disapointments and lots of extras not usually found in a rental.
We just returned from spending one week at a small hobby farm in the country (near Captain Cook), and a second week at this Alii Villa. Our country week was great fun, but it was awesome to follow it up here. The other reviews are spot on. Amazing views, and sounds, directly on the ocean. Very comfortable and super-clean place, virtually "like new". The owners have thoughtfully provided lots of extras, from kitchen utensils, cleaning detergent and candles, to beach towels and chairs, snorkel gear and boogie boards. Short drive to many beaches (favs were Kahalu'u Beach Park for snorkeling, and White Sands for swimming / wave crashing), as well as tons of Kona restaurants (especially loved Jackie Rey's, Orchid Thai, and Killer Taco). Great week, thanks Monika & Joseph!
We stayed at this nice condo for ten days in November, and liked the condo and the area very much. Another couple shared with us. We had all the amenities and conveniences we needed. The condominium is attractive, clean, and very well kept, and the view is fantastic from the lanai. We watched activites on the water--canoe racing, scuba divers, parasailing, ec, and saw pods of migrating dolphins close by, twice. The grounds at the complex are beautiful and very well maintained. You can't beat the convenience; it is a nice walk to shops , restaurants, etc., and there is a little grocery and convenience store a short walk south. We enjoyed the Thai Rin restaruant; it is not advertised much, but very good Thai food and service. This location is convenient for day trips, too--either south toward the black sand beaches, and on toward Hilo, etc, or northward toward the big luxury hotels along the coast (all worth a visit), and on to Hawi, etc. We would definitely recommend this rental to friends and family and would stay here again when we return to the Big Island.

I was in a unique situation when I rented this condo as I had a meeting to attend in Kona but the Kona vacation rental property I own was already booked so I couldn't stay there. Mary and Dennis, the owners of this property, provided good information and communication prior to my stay. But probably like most travellers, I worried about whether the pictures were accurate and whether the place would really be as nice as the description indicated.
As soon as I walked in and saw the ocean view, I was quickly able to stop worrying. It truly has a full ocean/shoreline view. The place is immaculate (the owners live locally and clean it themselves between guests). The decor is wonderful -- very Hawaiian in feeling and very comfortable.
Anything you could possibly want/need is located in the condo -- condiments and all kitchen supplies and equipment, beach towels, cooler, snorkling sets, and even a printer for your computer (to print out your boardig passes or whatever). And, there is also a washer/dryer inside the condo.
Although this is not a big resort property, the grounds are beautifully maintained and flowers are in bloom all over. The location is convenient on Alii Drive but maybe a bit far to walk to "downtown" Kona.
The only negative is also a positive. That is, this condo is on the 3rd floor and there is not an elevator. However, that creates a setting that is absolutely private. You will not hear or see guests in other units.
I highly recommend this condo and can't imagine anyone having less than a wonderful stay in it.
