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

"The view is terrific, location is great with all of the restaurants, outdoor market, nail salons, hair salons, dining out. The view is fantastic! and when you close the door it's so quiet and can still see the Ocean. Bathroom so private. BED EXCELLENT SOOO comfortable! Love the Large Refrigerator. Makes Ice quickly. Lots of storage everywhere and love the storage under bed for suitcases. Love the extra sink. The decorations beautiful. The kitchen is well stocked. Just LOVE it and love everything about it and working with you Gigi.I am recommending to my family and they are coming! "

Excellent Lanai Views

  • 4 of 5

Having breakfast on the lanai and enjoying the awesome ocean views made this a real vacation. This unit had everything required for making your own meals , was next door to the farm market for all those goodies like apple bananas , strawberry papayas and of course pineapple. There is also a multitude of restaurants within close proximity for those ocean front evening dinners. The owner has also left a load of good information about everything in the area, from places to eat to things to see and do. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and that my condo lived up to your expectations! I take great pride in my condo and go above and beyond to make sure it is up to date with everything you would expect in a vacation rental PLUS. I know Guests like to sit back and relax and just enjoy the ocean view from the condo, so I've stocked the kitchen so that you can have your Mai Tai and a steak dinner right there in the condo. I took a great deal of time formulating a synopsis what to do in the area as I have done it myself. I'm glad you enjoyed the tips on places to go and see! I hope you come back again or recommend it to others. Much Aloha, Gigi

Clean Studio - Great Place!

  • 4 of 5

This was a small place but very well kept. One could tell that the owners took pride in their property. We loved the décor. Very close to ocean and within walking distance to tons of amenities. Nice pool and hot tub. Grounds were very well manicured! Would stay here again!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the great correspondence and compliments and tips you have given me. As an owner I need to know what I can do to make your vacation top quality. No worries... that is why they call it "vacation!" So again, Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo for all of your kind words. I worked hard and it is great to know people appreciate it and will come back again. Much Aloha to you! Gigi

Exactly what I wanted!

Very nice location. I love the ocean and this condo's view did not dissapoint! Beautiful view and I enjoyed listening to the waves.

Owner's Response: Thanks Diane! I really appreciate your feedback. It helps me and other Guests get a perspective and point of view from those that stay there. Speaking of "point of view..." can't beat that view, eh? I am glad you enjoyed your Free late check out. I know it helps when you have a late flight and you can still capture 1 more day in Hawaii , hang by the pool, hot tub or beach and leave the luggage and worries until the last second. Hope to see you again in the future! Mahalo nui loa, Gigi

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! Gigi

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! Gigi

At night from the lanai there are flood lights illuminating the waves... so neat!

This is the island with the Actively flowing Volcano! A wonder of the world.

Walk to everything! It's ALL here.
