This 2 bed / 2 bath unit is quiet and fairly private for being in a condo complex. Relax on the patio, in the shade of an umbrella over patio table. while BBQ'ing your favorite fresh fish.
The master bedroom has a California King bed w/ air conditioning and cable TV. The second bedroom has a Queen bed with a memory foam mattress for extra comfort. You have extra guests? No problem, there is a pull our queen size couch bed in the living room. Almost all the living room furniture is brand new in 2011, and we tried to go with a tropical theme. In December of 2011, both of the bedrooms were repainted, and we replaced the dishwasher with an ultra quiet Bosch. It is hard to tell it's even on. We have a wireless router in the unit connected to the cable broadband for internet connection.

We live in Anchorage, Alaska. I was born in Alaska, but my family lived for 10 years on the big Island of Hawaii. I am now married with two daughters.
Winters are long in Alaska, and we were looking for a winter vacation home. Our goal is to get to our unit at least once a year. I grew up on the Big Island and am pretty familiar with the islands attractions and activities. My family loves the ocean, both for body surfing and snorkeling, and there are great places for both within a 5 min. drive of the condo. We also like to take walks and hikes. Our condo is right off Alii Dr., which is a favorite place for our morning walks. We also like to drive to Volcano National Park to go hiking and exploring. The town of Kailua- Kona has a few great farmers markets, with fresh tropical fruits and vegetables. Coming from Alaska in winter, it is great to have access to such a great selection. Kona is on the dry side of the Big Island, but it still gets good breezes, so the temp. mostly stays between 65F(18C) and 85F(30C) If you decide to stay here and have any questions about the unit or things to see or do while your are in Kona, please email me. I would be happy to point you to some of our favorite places.
The Alii Lani complex is across the street from the ocean, and less then a 5 min. drive away from the beaches. Shopping is also less then 5 min. away. While we stay at the unit, my daughters love the swimming pool. There are other children in the complex for them to play with. The pool has a nice area for sunbathing or resting under the palm trees, and a Jacuzzi for the adults. I have never seen it get too loud around the pool, even with the children playing. One of the reasons we chose this condo was that it faced the back of the complex. We wanted a unit that was fairly private and that did not have the noise associated with units that are closer to Alii Dr. We find the unit is quiet and the patio is surrounded with tropical plants that give us pretty good privacy from the adjoining condos.
