You'll relax in a brand new, Hawaiian themed condo in a desirable quiet second floor location. The unit is situated far from all of the road noise, bordering the natural greenway behind the complex. You'll live like a local while being near all the activities, dining, and shopping in the Big Island!
Wake up in the new king-sized bed and get a Kona Coffee at the shop across the street. Relax by one of the two well-groomed pools in the complex and enjoy some sunshine in paradise. When it's time for a meal, the restaurant and dining areas of Kona are only a mile away - drive, bike, or walk to a day strolling through local markets, beachfront restaurants, and products of local artisans. Watch another fantastic sunset with a cocktail or world famous Kona coffee, and then enjoy the nightlife of Kona, go on a nighttime SCUBA dive, or just head back to your home away from home to relax and watch the 55' LCD HDTV with Blu-Ray player!
On our 3rd time to Hawaii- 1st time to the big Island, we decided to try a vrbo unit. We chose the Ali Lani complex. We were very pleased and happy with the unit. It was exactly as the listing and photos described, the property was very clean and well maintained The king size bed was very comfortable and the kitchen and bathrooms had everything we needed. The furnishings were tasteful and enjoyed! The internet was fast. We were spoiled with the big screen TV. The swimming pools and hot tub were great. We ate papayas every day, bought on the market. The town is with in walking distance. We can recommend this unit to anyone. Love to come back next year
...hubby & I celebrated 30 years by staying 30 nights in Kona where we eloped...the condo was a great 'home away from home'...the info & photos you see are accurate...it has everything you need! the pools are nice/quiet most of the time & the whole complex is well maintained...the minor problems we ran into (loose/missing towel racks & loose tp holder) were reported to the management co & fixed in a timely manner. Took a few day trips to nearby towns to take in the sights/sounds/smells of the quaintness of it all! And ate toooooo much ONO food....the Farmer's Mkts are not to be missed..fresh papayas at 3 or 4 for a buck were savored every day! Got our pork chop 'fix' at the Manago Hotel. Big Island Grill always satisfies & take home a doggie bag that will last a day or two! the portions are huge! Happy Hour at Don the Beachcomber's was our fav....pina coladas & pupus & local singers & the beautiful sunsets! Huggo's on the Rocks wasn't bad either! The monthly 'strolls' in Kona--town are fun...Alii Dr closed off & oodles of vendors/made in Hawaii top quality arts/crafts/more to be seen/purchased. And after a holoholo day it was nice to go back to the condo & watch tv/movie or read, & snack on the fresh poke we picked up on the way home at KTA &/or Sack & Save! Thank you Eric & Cathy...I would heartily recommend the condo to anyone who wants to live like a local!
We stayed at the condo recently for a month and had a great time. The island is so relaxing! We visited the pool, ate (too much!), slept, and in general were happily lazy bums. We appreciated the kitchen in the condo so we could stash leftovers from dinners in Kona, and have some easy breakfast items on hand. We also loved the huge TV - now my husband wants one. :-) We'd recommend this condo for anyone who wants to unwind in island paradise!
We have stayed at over a dozen VRBO rentals in the last five years. Truth in advertising.....or listing descriptions on VRBO leave many places wanting. This place is no exception. We stayed for 30 days.
The initial heading "Brand New Beautiful Condo with All The Extras" is very misleading. The condo is 10-15 years old as verified by permanent residents. The new king bed is far from new.....and has a foam pad on it.....hardly necessary for a new bed. The kitchen is sparely equipped and the rugs need to be replaced. While there I repaired both towel racks in the bathrooms and remounted the shower curtain rod several times that was held together with duct tape. The sliding window locks are broken so we purchased wood strips, cut them to size and placed them in the window tracks for security. We mentioned the short-comings to the management firm and their response was minimal. There are positives.....the pool areas are quiet and seldom busy. The big TV is wonderful. Location is quiet and close to town and attractions. Price is a great equalizer and was in this case resulting in an average rating. If your expectations hang on all the "new" words in the listing - you will be disappointed. If you keep reminding yourself of the price - relax and enjoy yourself.
Thank you Cathy & Eric for sharing your condo! We truly enjoyed the stay in your well-equipped unit! It was more than expected. The locale is great--close to Kailua-Kona town and accessible to all island destinations. We drove the entire island and were always happy to end our day, hot tubbing in your well-maintained pool area. The condo grounds are beautiful! This was our first trip to the big island and we plan to return. This island has it all--beautiful white, black and green sand beaches, unmatched and diverse vistas, as well as the sea life (turtles, dolphins and manta rays) you hope to see when coming to Hawaii. Mahalo!
