You will feel like you are on a cruise ship in this absolute oceanfront unit. Almost every room in the unit boasts oceanfront access. Enjoy outstanding Kona sunsets and fall asleep to the sounds of the surf!
Enjoy your meals on the oceanfront lanai and save by cooking in the full kitchen or the barbecue area located on-site.
The unit has two bedrooms plus a dividing wall and queen sleeper sofa to comfortably accommodate 8 persons.
Tons of beaches nearby, including black sand and one of only two green sand beaches in the world! World class snorkeling only a few miles away. Walk one mile to the heart of the central business district for meals and shopping.
The State of Hawaii is among the most beautiful places on earth - and the Big Island of Hawaii is the most exciting and active of the islands - with live volcanoes, world class snorkeling, rainforests, and even snow bound activities!
that's about the most spectacular view from a residence we've ever seen, and really liked how the waves varied.
Also, the stone surfaces in the main bathroom are a nice touch, altho less quote-worthy. (Quote if you'd like, though.)
Yes, we had a very nice stay. One other observation - the daily gatherings for the sunset are a nice social aspect of your and neighboring complexes.
Centrally located 2BR/2BA unit in Ali'i Villas. Everything a vacationer needs for a wonderful stay in Kona.
Nice touches include bikes, boogie board, coolers and more. Cute beach-themed decor in unit. Wonderful balcony overlooking ocean from two sides. Sleeping at night to the sounds of crashing waves. Relaxing beachy comfort and a good place to come home to at the end of each day. Nice extras and owner takes great care to have all the incidentals that make a vacation perfect. In fact, I have never stayed at any other VRBO property where the owner provided so many of the comforts of home like soaps, lotion, cleaning supplies including dishwasher and laundry detergent, trash liners, etc. The kitchen has everything you need for chopping, cutting, cooking & dining.
The condo, its views, its parking space, and all the extra touches make this one to return to. In a few words... Comforting Kona Condo in a great location at a great price!
We (5 people) had a fantastic time on our trip to Kona and our stay in this condo was one of the highlights. The location directly on the ocean with the sound of the waves, the dolphin, whale, and water sport viewing is wonderful! Oh, and the amazing sunset right off of the lanai. We also appreciate all the items the owner had for us to borrow during our stay (cooler, beach chair, mats, boogie board, etc.). That was very considerate, helpful, and much appreciated. I would not hesitate to stay at this condo again. I hope it is available for our next return trip. Mahalo.
Our family of 4 stayed in this condo for 4 nights and it was perfect for us!! We absolutely loved hearing the waves all night and seeing the water as we opened our eyes each morning. We had breakfast on the porch, watching the dolphins go by. We packed picnic lunches for our beach days; there are coolers and beach equipment to borrow. I would recommend a car so you can tour the island and see all there is in the area. The weather was a bit humid, but there were plenty of fans to keep the ocean breezes moving. The owner was very helpful and responded to all our questions promptly.
Well I can't say I agree with the previous review and it certainly sounds to me like nothing short of a 5 star hotel would satisfy them. This condo was great and Barry could not have been better to work with. Is it a little older and used? Yes, but overall, there were no major complaints. Quite frankly, I don't really think you go to Hawaii to spend much time in your condo anyway! The kitchen is smaller, but more than sufficient. The views and overall location are absolutely perfect! As for anyone looking in, I am not sure how this is possible unless someone had really good eyes or binoculars? The owners asked very nicely if guests could water the plants (which we did twice in our five days), but if people aren't doing this and no one is staying there, then there is not much to do. Besides, they aren't dead, just a little "dry" :). The bikes were fine as my teenage daughters used them with no problems. The space is a little tight, but we are a family of six and had more than enough space for all of our belongings. There are plenty of extras which were super nice (groceries, toiletries, etc.) Certainly saves having to go buy them all which we have done at other condos. Barry was also super nice and let us check out very late (6pm) so we could fully enjoy our last day there without having to pack the night before. For the price, this condo is spectacular and I would absolutely rent again without thinking twice!! Thanks so much Barry for making Our stay the highlight of our trip!! Mahalo!!
Well, I can't say I agree with the previous review and I suppose if you are planning to spend all of your vacation in your condo, some of this might have been an issue, but for the price, the value of this condo was AWESOME! Barry could not have been more helpful and accommodating and I would absolutely rent here again. We are a family of six, and yes there was not a ton of open space but certainly plenty for all of our belongings. As for plants, the owners asked kindly that guests water them (which we did twice in our 5 days), but if no one is staying there, there is not much one can do. The views were awesome and I do not know how neighbors could be looking in unless they have really good eyes or binoculars! As for kitchen, it is small, but more than sufficient. I am not sure anything less than 5 star hotel could please the last reviewers, but let me assure you this is a very nice condo...a little used, but the location, the views, the customer service, the price and the sounds of the ocean more than make-up for any of the insignificant shortcomings. Having stayed at other condos, I would most assuredly recommend this location to anyone. Barry was also SUPER kind and let us check out VERY late (6pm) at no extra charge so we could fully enjoy our last day in Hawaii and didn't have to pack the day before! Thank you Barry for making our trip to the Big Island the highlight of our vacation. We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed ourselves and spend our last hours trying to think of ways to "miss our plane" so we could stay longer!
We found the location of this condo extraordinary but that is where it ends. The condo itself needs to be gutted and started over. The smoke detectors were missing. A stool was broken and shoved in the closet. We reported it but no one came to fix it. The plants on the lanai were dead - we asked if we could buy a few and plant them, but this was not to be - we stayed with dead plants for 3 weeks. The shower floor was black with dirt, which no amount of cleaning could remedy. There was no privacy - sheer curtains could not stop the neighboring building from looking right into the bedroom. The stove and fridge were rusting. There was bedding piled high on the floor in the bathroom closet. There was no mattress pad for the bed, just an old foam mattress on top of the mattress. The kitchen utensils were old and worn - the non stick pots and pans were losing their finish. The closets were stuffed with the owners things - there was little space to store our suitcases. We tried to use one of the bicycles but it was not safe - the brake handles were in the wrong place. The lanai furniture was torn and old. Electrical and speaker wires were draped haphazardly over the floor and curtain rods. We cannot recommend this unit. The view is wonderful, the neighbors are great, there are many other units to stay in at the Alii Villas - this one is not it.
