About Ann Oliver

I am a Walnut Creek, CA resident who enjoys escaping the Bay Area for respite in Kona-Kailua.

Ann Oliver purchased this condo in 2004

Why Ann Oliver chose Kona Coast

We had enjoyed vacationing at Kona Isle many times and when this ocean front second floor unit became available, we jumped on it. The condo had been recently remodeled, but we have continued make upgrades. We recently installed a granite countertop in the kitchen. The washer/dryer are relatively new as is the refrigerator.

What makes this condo unique

I frequently play tennis at the nearby Royal Kona Tennis Club. We also like walking to local restaurants for breakfast or lunch, but find we most enjoy BBQing oceanside at our complex for sunset dinners.

We take much pride in our condo and endeavour to maintain it so that every guest finds it more than satisfactory.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"A very excellent condo & a most interesting island= a very wonderful vacation.



Thank you so much for sharing your Hawaiian home with other people. We have enjoyed every minute of our stay...."

Great Ocean View, Incredible Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

This second floor condo had every thing we needed for a relaxing vacation on the Big Island. The bed was very comfortable and the sound of the crashing waves lulled us to sleep. The condo is Ocean Front with an unobstructed view from the living room and lanai. Never turned on the A/C - used the ceiling fans, kept the windows open and lowered the lanai shade during the day. Kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed the man made beach right by the ocean, sitting on the chaise lounges under the coconut palms, then watching the beautiful sunsets with a cocktail every evening. There is a nice BBQ area and picnic tables down there too. The condo manager keeps the grounds immaculate. The complex is very quiet. We had the beach to ourselves most of the time, and the pool was never crowded. A short drive takes you to the Magic Sands Beach, Da Poke Shack - (the best poke ever) and the KTA grocery store that had everything we needed (great recommendation by a local). We enjoyed dining in as well as eating out several times at the restaurants at the other end of Alii Drive just a few miles down the road. Favorites were Huggo's and Jackie Rey's for dinner, and breakfast at Island Lava Java. A great day trip was a stop for lunch at Big Island Brew in Waimea before we toured the Hawaii Vanilla Company.

Ann was very nice to work with, and responded quickly. She has thoughtfully provided beach towels, beach chairs, a cooler, guide books, and even first aid supplies. If you love looking at the ocean, beautiful sunsets and listening to the waves without a crowd of people around this is the place to be!

Beautiful Oceanfront Setting

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed second floor one-bedroom condo is right on the ocean. The waves crash and sigh, and the sunsets are magnificent. The Unit has everything you would need for dining in or eating out. the Owners are very thoughtful, and much relevant and useful information is provided in books, brochures and maps. The condo is clean and well-maintained, and the condo complex is very pretty and carefully looked after. You can't find a better vacation rental on Hawaii Island. Nick & EileenSordi

Awesome Ocean View Huge Crashing Waves

  • 5 of 5

Ann is great and responds back to you right away. This was our first stay in Ann's condo and when my wife and I walked in the door we were blown away with the awesome Ocean view. No condo is perfect we notified Sunquest of a view things that need fixing (nothing major).

The condo was well stocked. We made the cleaning ladies job easy by washing all beach towels etc, and left a bath towel, small towel, and wash cloth to be washed. And left the condo exactly as we found it.

Theirs a lot of various instructions to follow here's a hint all fans have a light switch on the wall that's says fan in various places. Bedroom and living room (LARGE) fans are the ones to use. When cooking use kitchen fan, when taking shower use bathroom fan. Do not pull on chains on fans use the light switches on walls.

The rest you just have to figure it out as you go as I did (HA HA HA).

Now back to my original thought the reason to rent this CONDO is if you like Ocean View and like falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves.

We loved the AWESOME Ocean view and the longer we stayed the better we slept to the sound of crashing waves.

Tip leave all windows open at night it will cool down the condo tremendously. Look forward to coming back in a couple of years.

Thanks for sharing your home with us Ann (God Bless).

Excellent ocean front location. If you love to listen to the ocean, this is the place for you.

The condo was very clean and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. We did not figure out how to make the AC work properly so we just kept all the windows open and put the sun shade down while we were away. We also took advantage of the pool and spent a great amount of time on the lanai. We happened to vacation during one of the hottest summers in 40 years. The bed was super comfy. There were beach chairs, coolers etc. for our use. I would not hesitate to return

Pristine grounds, quiet surroundings, excellent accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described in the VRBO presentation. The location of the condo was perfect for watching the ocean and listening to the waves 24/7. The condo was clean, up to date appliances, well appointed. I would recommend to anyone but, this unit is heavily booked; reserve early. Excellent communication and follow up by the owner. We felt as though we were guests in a friend's home.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Spent five nights at Ann's condo and could hardly have been happier. It is clean, quiet and comfortable, and is perfectly located with a wonderful view of the ocean and sunsets. The condo contained nearly everything I could have needed during my stay.

Just three recommendations to make the place even better:

1- Do not leave the A/C cover on A/C unit for guests' arrival - may create confusion and guests could potentially damage the A/C unit. There are instructions on the wall near the A/C remote but I only read the instructions provided on the fridge. Alternatively, provide ALL relevant instructions on one piece of paper or in one document;

2- Leave enough laundry detergent for guests to do at least a couple of loads. There was plenty of dish soap but no laundry detergent provided, so I had to buy a large bottle and left it almost full, I hope it can be used by future guests;

3- Sofa bed was very uncomfortable when used as a bed - I would either discourage people from using it that way, or else replace it with something usable.

The toilet was leaking when I arrived, I called the property manager and someone came the very same day and fixed the issue.

Very happy with my experience and hope to return in the future. Thank you again Ann! :-)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. Will work on new instructions and laundry detergent situation. Sorry to hear about the sofa bed. I slept on it recently and thought it was okay. Will look into it. Ann
