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.
