|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
This property is quite lovely, with fabulous views of Kailua Bay, Kona Town, and Hualalai mountain. It is situated directly across the street from the ocean, with access to many nearby beaches and water activities. 7 stories above Kona Town, you can walk downstairs or take one of two convenient elevators to street level and find yourself in the center of some of the best dining, shopping and nightlife the Big Island has to offer.
The condo is 2 stories and features 2 private lanais, one off the dining area on the main floor, and a private rooftop sundeck on the top floor. Both have ocean views. During the famous Ironman competition, you can view portions of the run, swim and bike events from either lanai! There is common sun deck on our floor, and a swimming pool and BBQ lanai on the ground floor.
The master bedroom and bathroom are newly remodeled, they are on the Upper Sundeck level looking East out onto the lanai, where you will catch breathtaking sunrises. There is a big screen TV serving both the Master bedroom and adjoining sitting area. The guest bedroom is on the main level and features a jet-bath, granite counters, and marble floors. The half bath with shower is also on the main level, and houses the washer/dryer as well.
The kitchen has been remodeled with granite counters, stainless steel appliances and a marble floor which opens into the dining/living area, and gives the chef a lovely penthouse view of Kona Town.
This condo is perfect for one couple, but can be suitable for 2 couples traveling together, please note the rate is $275 per night when there are 4 renters. It is not suitable for children, due to the steep open stairs, the open railings, and the high-end decor.
There is an electric keyboard for the musician, bring your own music!
This is the perfect rental for those of you who want to be right in the middle of all of Kona's activity, yet you can escape to the privacy of your penthouse in seconds! Truly a lovely choice.
We are both artists and musicians, and live on the northern tip of the Island in the little town of Hawi.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2004
Location! It is right in downtown Kona, across from the ocean and walking distance to everything you need. The Volcano, South Point, Kona Coast hotels and beaches, Parker Ranch in Waimea, Hawi up North and even Hilo are within a days driving distance from here. Costco is nearby, as well as theaters, galleries, churches, museums, coffee farms, and important historical sites.
We love being above it all, being able to look down on all the activity in the center of town, yet enjoy the privacy of our property and lanais. It takes 2 minutes to get downstairs and walk into the best shopping, dining and nightlife on the Island. The ocean is across the street, the farmers market is a block away, the Pier is a 5 minute walk away. There are boat rides, parasail rides, cultural sites, galleries and much more right at your fingertips.
Words cannot describe our delight in the condo! It had all the comforts of home, and a beautiful view, right in the centre of Kona town.......
Exactly as advertised. Everything we needed for our 3 day stay. Beach towels, snorkels, cooler and boogie boards were much appreciated. Awesome sunset views from the balcony. Pool was well maintained and at a perfect temp. Would definitely rent again.
We rented the condo first two weeks of March, 2015. It was perfect for us. Great downtown location in Kona if we wanted to get out for meals or whatever in Kona. Excellent central location to get to beaches, Walmart, Target, Safeway. The condo itself was very nice and comfortable and a pleasure to return to after a long day of adventure. There were a couple of coolers, boogie boards available. Nice pool even though we never got a chance to enjoy it we were so busy. Kitchen and appliances top notch with everything we needed. Sunsets we completely enjoyed. The parking space and location, very convenient.
Would definitely stay again if we came back to Kona. The place sets the bar pretty high to anything else we looked at.
This is the perfect location for a vacation in Kona, Top floor, 2 lanai's, extremely comfortable and walk or bike anywhere within Kona. A very nice pool and the other residents are very friendly. We were invited to a Pu Pu party at the pool on our first night there. The condo is beautiful and the owners very easy to get along with.
This is one of the nicest places we've stayed. It's close enough to the ocean that we could hear and see the waves on the beach and watch sunsets. It's right in town, so we were close to restaurants and shops, and only one block from the Farmer's Market. A few times, we could hear the revelers from nearby places leave, waking us up, but our bed was so comfortable, we fell back to sleep easily. The owners made our stay most comfortable with a kitchen loaded with utensils for cooking, and gear for outdoor adventures. I'd come again if ever we get back to the Big Island.
The condo was everything we expected and more! The kitchen was well stoked with dishes, pots and pans and even a few spices. We loved the proximity to all of the shops, restaurants, and especially the farmers market which we frequented daily. There is nothing better for breakfast than fresh papaya on the lanai!
Even though the condo is in the middle of Kona activity (a bonus), being on the top floor we were peacefully away from the street noise.
The owner, Kristi was readily available to answer any questions we had during our month stay.
Highlights for our stay:
Very comfortable bed, and in condo laundry
Pre dawn fishing off the pier
Fresh fish for dinner
Fresh fruits and vegis from the farmers market
Music at Bongo Ben's
Walking along Ali'i Drive
Whale and dolphin watching off Ali'i Drive
Volcano, drive to Hawi and Waimea
Beaches at the Harbor and along Kahala
We hope to return soon!
We were on our honeymoon and Kristi was warm, friendly and welcoming. The place exceeded our expectations and her and Jack made it feel like home. My husband loved the fully stocked kitchen. The views, penthouse sundeck, marble floors and Kristi's beautiful artwork were lovely. I enjoyed the jacauzzi tub after going out on our snorkeling, diving and ATV adventures. No internet in the condo, but easy access at the Lava Java next door. Centrally located in town. Great Value! We'd go back!
We have a keyboard in the condo for those of you who like to play music. We ski on the Big Island! One hour drive from Kona, November - April, most years.
