About Gigi Hayes-Polk

We put our heart & soul into our Hawaii Unit. It was remodeled with Hawaiiana Design. We retired and moved to Hawaii for the winters. I came from Buffalo, NY & Cape Cod, MA. My husband from Northern CA. This is a golfers paradise (ask my husband... wink wink ;p) as well as a beach tropical dream. We split our time in Kona & Cape Cod. We rent it out when we are not here. Therefore you will find it CLEAN & NEAT with many small appliances for your needs. Although it is small and the kitchen smaller, it meets our needs. Having the Ocean waves right out the door is what makes it so special. Some of these units at The Islander are not up to par as is ours. We take pride in our unit and reputation. The grounds on the other hand are unbelievably gorgeous and tropical Hawaiiana and well kept. Banana trees onsite and occasionally in lobby you can get some local fruit from the trees! We do BBQ very often and meet people at the pool, hot tub area and it is so much fun. It is quiet and security is amazing. 10 CUBIC FRIDGE! fridge with freezer. (see pics)

FRIDGE ENVY!!

Gigi Hayes-Polk purchased this condo in 2011

Why Gigi Hayes-Polk chose Kailua Kona

Kona is laid back. Not the busy hustle and bustle of the city. It has wonderful restaurants and beaches all over the place. It is hard to decide which one to go to.

IRONMAN??!!! WATCH FROM THE ROOM LANAI!!! WALK TO START IN MINUTES!!

http://www.ironman.com/triathlon/events/ironman/world-championship/course.aspx

What makes this condo unique

Being Downtown has it's advantages. You can walk to everything & work off all of the great food. Parking is limited so it's great to not even deal with a car. I have a moped for fun. You can rent them downtown too.

Visit Black, White & Green Sand beaches on Big Island Hawaii. Walk to a Luau at King Kamehameha Hotel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We made it! What a cute little slice of paradise! We look forward to our stay!

Great location, ocean view, clean and comfortable unit.

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants, shops, beaches. Very clean and nicely decorated unit. The grounds are lovely and the staff very helpful. Gigi is quick to answer questions and she gives many good suggestions of activities to do and restaurants to try. We were able to prepare nice meals as the tiny kitchen is well equipped. We ate on the lanai watching the waves hit the shore. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental property.

Owner's Response: So glad to see you are enjoying our Condo and your stay in beautiful Downtown Kona Hawaii! There is nothing like it in the world. And thank you for the great compliments. We strive for top quality and comfort in our condo to assure a great stay for our Guests.

I am glad I was able to accommodate you with a Free 11pm check out! I know how hard it is when you have a late flight and you are all packed with no where to go! So sit back... take in the Ocean... relax... and hope to see you back again soon!

Paradise With an Ocean View

  • 5 of 5
As I write this review, I am sitting upon the lanai of this rental which is about 50 yards from the ocean. The soothing sounds of the waves are so loud that we had difficulty hearing the audio on movies we watched on Netflix on our computer. The wifi in this unit is strong and reliable and streaming movies was a breeze. Being in the center of Kona, this rental is surrounded by restaurants. You really have no need for a car unless you want to explore the rest of the Big Island. Inside, you will have all you need to make your stay pleasant. Gigi provides everything as well as great communication. The unit is clean and the bed is comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen are small but that's to be expected in a 0 bedroom condo but they are more than adequate for your needs. I highly recommend this condo. We stayed here for a month and we were totally satisfied.

Owner's Response: I am sooo glad you had a lovely stay! And a big MAHALO for the 5* star rating! We have worked very hard "polishing" our "slice of paradise" so that is perfect in every way. We too stay there and I make sure it is the best for us... and especially our Guests. The full ocean view is a blessed Bonus!! I guess the loud ocean that day was God's way of saying.... "watch the ocean instead of TV" lol!
I am so glad we were able to give you the whole day Free for your late check out. I know it is hard winding down before you have to go back to "reality."
Mele Kalikimaka and hope to see you again soon!

Awesome Location

  • 4 of 5
We just stayed in this condo for a week. Super great location, awesome view. Had breakfast on the lanai and watched the cruise ships come in. You can walk to most everything. Free WiFi was a great bonus. Laundry mat is on premises if needed. We were able to park in the lot every night but one so no worries if you do rent a car. The condo was perfect for the 2 of us but we were gone most the time anyways. Loved listening to the ocean once we did get back and put our feet up. Much better than a hotel! VERY quiet! Great value.....

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your awesome review. The condo really does sell itself with the Ocean Views and being centrally located downtown. That being said I'm glad I was able to make my Guests like you have the quality, luxury and comfort, yet the Islands "home life" feeling right in the condo. Hope to see you again soon.
Also I hope the Free Extra Night helped make an even extra special vacation stay.
Mahalo nui loa and Mele Kalekimaka!

Awesome views, location, amenities

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 8 days in this studio condo. The views were wonderful, as the lanai is practically on the ocean. Everything you needed was in this place. The kitchen had all you would ever need to create wonderful meals. Every small appliance was there for cooking or preparing food or drinks. The full size refrigerator was nice to have. We had air conditioning, Wi-Fi, T.V. (which we normally wouldn't watch while on vacation, but the World Series was on!). The bed was comfortable, and the island style decor made you feel at home. We would definitely stay here again. We had no problems with parking on site. Stores, restaurants and beaches or shore front access were a short walk in either direction. The owner, Gigi, was so helpful, and corresponded frequently as our arrival date got closer, to be sure we had all the information we needed.

Please come back again soon for a visit!

Fabulous Location!

  • 3 of 5
This unit is in a fabulous location. Clean and tidy and a comfortable bed. Good fridge space and all you need in cutlery/dishes. The hot tub on the complex was a wonderful extra although it was a bit too hot (even when we turned it down). Mind you, that's not any fault of the owners of the unit. Sitting on the lanai watching the waves was a lovely way to spend time after a big day ... Relaxing. Mahalo to the Big Island - loved it!

Downtown Kona Condo

  • 5 of 5
Our 3rd stay in Kona and we booked Kona Island Inn for 5weeks instead of a hotel. The location was perfect, the view from the lanai amazing and everything provided in the condo was just right. Dusty who managed the front desk was a lovely lady who was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble- she tried very hard to make sure our stay was trouble-free.

Owner's Response: I'm glad to hear of your lovely trip. From what I understand you both took advantage of all of the great things to do and see in Kona to make it the best vacation ever! The view is truly amazing and I am glad you were able to enjoy our little slice of paradise.
Dustie is remarkable at Security and we are very blessed to have her and her team on board. I will pass it on.
Looking forward to seeing you back in Kona again.
Mahalo to you both,
Gigi
