Guestbook comments from the manager

This has been our third visit to Marianna's condo at Kona Alii and we also stayed

in her condo at the Banyan Tree.

Both condos have been well kept and one can feel the love and care in both of them.

Kona Alii is still our favorite because of the location alone.

Since we have stayed on the Big Island may times we are mostly interested in relaxing at the condo, walking into town for meals, coffee and to shop for fruits and veggies at the farmers market.

The condo is very, very comfortable and one can watch the waves from the deck as well as people strolling by without them watching us.

The pool and the grilling area is very nice as well.

Another Great Kona Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Marianna's condo for several years. We truly enjoy our time there. The condo is well equipped and the view from the lanai is spectacular. You are within walking distance from shops and eating establishments. We are staying again next year. Marianna is a very special lady. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful condo.

Nice place, but probably won't ever stay there again

  • 3 of 5

The condo was nice. A little dated but comfortable. The biggest disappointment was the pool was in the the back of the building (kinda boxed in) so it never got any sun back there. And because the pool wasn't heated it was too cold to go swimming.

Owner's Response: This pool is heated at about 82 degrees. I just varified this with the site manager. I have spent many afternoons there to catch the sun and have privacy and security. The pool is one of the largest pools in the older condo buildings. This building is from 1971 and that is why the location is a prime spot in Kona.This condo has been renovated several times since it was build and I just retiled the entire flooring , remodeled bathrooms again. This is a security building and I never had any complains about this before. I have many returning guests year after year because they are happy there including with the pool.

Amazing Dolphin show for breakfast...

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic condo!!!! I have vacationed in Kona for over 15 years and I can honestly say that this is my FAVORITE condo I have stayed in. The view and the location are perfect; you are right in town but still very private and quiet during the day and night. When you first walk into the condo the floors are cream white marble in appearance. Beautiful!!! The kitchen and bathrooms are all modern and updated. The smaller bathroom has a wonderful rock shower very tropical. The bed was very comfortable, not to soft and not to hard. We slept like a baby every night. When you wake up the first thing you see is the ocean view from the bed. You do hear the ocean waves throughout the whole condo. Not crashing waves but lapping waves. There is a very nice brand new stackable washer and dryer. Very nice couches T.V. stereo system and dvd player. The closet is stocked with umbrella, ice igloo cooler, 2 beach chairs and snorkel gear. Watch out in the morning for dolphins jumping, they put on a wonderful breakfast show some mornings. I can go on and on but I better stop here. If you rent it you won't be disappointed. Brenda from Monterey California :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I do strive to make my guest comfortable and happy, hoping that they will return someday. I consider this also my home away from the farm and my critters. With Aloha Marianna Rainbow

well appointed unit, close to the action

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully appointed unit with many nice features. Beach gear provided, even an umbrella, snorkeling stuff, fins, towels, mats. Good reference material to help sort out which activity to pursue. Great view of the sunset and people watch on Ali'l Drive. Sound of the surf within 100 feet quite soothing, traffic on Ali'i less so, but drops off after about 9 p.m. Doors, when closed, do a good job of keeping out most of the noise. The owner was responsive and helpful. Breeze off the ocean sufficient most of the time to keep the place cool, temperature was always OK by bedtime. Some noise in the building, but not significant. We rented a car, so the parking space was useful. Having washer and dryer in the unit was very convenient. Two bathrooms also came in handy.
