Overview

Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

The unit boasts a panoramic view of the ocean framed by palm trees from the living/dining and kitchen areas through twelve foot sliding glass doors. Relax on the expanded private lanai overlooking the surf, marine life and unsurpassed Kona sunsets. This second floor end unit in the desirable beachfront E building is quiet, secure and private. A full remodel started in Fall 2012. The well equipped kitchen has all new appliances including a dishwasher. There is also a new in-unit clothes washer/dryer. The upgraded ceramic tile bathroom features a walk-in shower. The bedroom, completed in 2014, has a wall of windows that can be opened to the trade winds and lulling sound of the near-by waves.

To help you enjoy your visit, there is beach gear, binoculars to watch passing whales (in season), guidebooks and a reserved stall in an adjacent lighted parking area. We have assembled an on-island team that takes pride in insuring that everything is extra clean and in good repair, as well as a concierge if you need assistance in making any special arrangements for your visit.

Kona Isle delivers the old Hawaii that visitors dream about. It is a small, intimate resort of five low rise buildings nestled in lush, pristine landscaped grounds. A heated fresh water swimming pool adjacent to a private beach area affords plenty of space to soak up the sun or relax with a book from the extensive library. There is also an adjacent ocean-side surf fed pool. Gas bar-be-ques are maintained for your use in a lighted beachfront picnic area, a favorite gathering spot for sunset viewing. Kona Isle is a Wi-Fi enabled, non-smoking facility.

Kona Isle is situated in the heart of the Kona coast on the ocean side of Ali'i Drive about 1 1/2 miles from Kailua-Kona restaurants, shops and nightlife. Both a convenience store and farmers market are within a 1 block walk. The Alii Drive shuttle bus also stops near-by. Some of the island's best snorkeling and surfing spots are less then a ten minute drive.

The laid back, serene ambiance within the complex coupled with the convenient location accounts for the many repeat visitors. This unit puts you out front, right on the ocean -- no roads to cross, no buildings restricting your view, no vehicles parked in sight. How close is the ocean?

Awesome Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st time using VRBO and I could not have had a better experience anywhere. The condo was very clean and had everything you needed. Loved how peaceful and quiet - never heard neighbor. The only noise was the ocean and birds - how amazing. The view was spectacular. we even had a whale put on a show right in front of the condos just at sunset, even though we were told this was too late in the season. The grounds were well maintained and the grills in perfect working order. Great location. Perfect vacation. Highly recommend this unit.

Owner's Response: Even in the busy midwinter peak season, Kona Isle is a restful place to recharge. But one of our most memorable visits was in the late Spring - it can truly feel like your camping out on your own private beach. To have that with whales to keep you company -- how awesome! We're so glad your first vacation rental worked out so well.

Wonderful relaxing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property. Enjoyed the surf right outside our unit! We loved morning coffee watching ocean life from the balcony and evening barbecues on the beach. The owners supplied us not just basics in the condo, but with a great selection of gear for enjoying the beach and sightseeing, as well as suggestions to help us get the most out of our vacation. We definitely hope to return and would rent this unit again. Cheers!

Million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular view as soon as you enter the unit. It was what sold us on the condo in the first place and it was even better in person. Very, very clean, neat, and comfortable. Only about two miles or so from town and easy to exit the complex even on a sometimes busy Alii Drive. Good access to highways if you want to go out to Hawi or the volcanoes. No lack of good places to eat and relax, Huggos, Humpy's, Lava Java, Kona Inn, and Daylight Mind to name a few. No question we will stay here again next time we are in Kona.

Owner's Response: The most frequent question we get is if the view is as good as it looks on the VRBO site. We always want to say "no -- it's lots better". Thank you for setting the record straight on that point. Thank you also for sharing places you found for meals out -- there are a couple we will look into next time we are on the island.

Kona Waterfront Gem

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this condo, would return to this unit the next time on the island. Having an ocean side view with our morning coffee, lunch, and evening cocktails was incredible. The unit has great amenities, washer and dryer is a must, dishwasher, microwave, no conventional oven though but it was not needed. Also available was a small cooler, beach chairs, beach mats, umbrella - this made it a lot easier not having to go get out and get anything. There was a DVD player and they updated the flat screen TV just before we got there. The bed & pillows were comfortable, good stock of towels available. The complex is well kept, they kept the BBQ area, tables and beach chairs clean and orderly. The wifi signal sometimes faded off, but most times it was good. Communication with the owners beforehand was very good, even advised us on some sights, restaurants and beaches. You're not far from Kona, very convenient.

Owner's Response: As tenants we learned how much a clean, well kept and stocked condo contributed to our vacation experience. As owners we learned what a challenge it is to provide in a tropical oceanfront complex. Most essential is the cleaning crew - we've found one whose expertise and dedication is obvious from guest's comments over the past couple of years. Beyond that, moist salt air attacks everything, so we regularly replace items. The new T.V. you mentioned replaced one about 3 years old and, while a slight upgrade, it's more an example of maintenance required to keep things up. As a complex, one of the attractions of Kona Isle is how well it's association and manager Brian maintain it. Thanks for a comprehensive review and we're happy the complex and our unit met your expectations. We'll do all we can to make sure you find everything just as nice when you return.

Great View

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed the up-front view of the ocean and all that happens there. Easy to get downtown Kona or out of town to see the sights.
