One Cool Kona Condo is super clean unit with really pretty designer touches. My unit features everything you need to make your stay a pleasant one. It is said a picture is worth a thousand words. so just take a look and you'll be hooked. Located on the top floor (second story) just left up the stairs from the lobby makes it a snap to check in and unload your car. Don't worry though, this is a solid concrete block building built in 1969 by Japanese designers, so is incredibly quiet inside. Once inside relax and enjoy a cool drink and pop your iPod into the iHome lamp and listen to some soothing island music. This will get you into the laid back groove of the Big Island. Once you are in the groove, head back to the lobby and check out the pool and hot tub for dip or follow the beautiful garden path past the pool area straight to Alii Drive to enjoy oceanfront dining and shopping. Whether staying just a few a days or a month, you will just love my Kona home.
I came to Kona about 15 years ago and fell in love with the Big Island. I returned a few times and in May 2013 stayed at the Islander in one of the units then returned a few days later after circling the island, and found a few units for sale. This one caught my eye as it was nicely renovated by a local writer as quiet place to put her thoughts to paper. Next thing you know I had purchased it. I put my artwork and personal touches in place and there you have it. I hope you enjoy the spirit and charm my place has to offer.
