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.

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.

Center of Paradice

  • 5 of 5

Marianna's condo was exactly as advertised. We sat on the lani and watched dolphins and the ocean breaking on the shore. We could even sit in bed and see the ocean.

I felt like I was a guest in her home. The kitchen was complete, we saved so much money by cooking. Having - washer and drier was great! This location is so central that we could walk anywhere in Kona.

Just remember that there is no air conditioning. There are lots of fans, but it still was quite warm and humid. On really hot days, we would just go for a swim in the beautiful, little used pool.

My only regret is that I never got to meet Marianna Rainbow and see her wildlife refuge..

Great view- comfortable- well appointed

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice condo with an amazing ocean front. We had breakfast every morning on the lanai watching the ocean waves. Easy walking to restaurants and shops. There is a lovely pool on the property. The main road goes right by the condo and the traffic noise gets fairly loud at night but the ocean waves help mask that. No a/c but lots of fans provided.

Can I stay forever?

  • 5 of 5

Of all the places I visited in Hawaii, this was my favorite place. Marianna was great to work with, the view is as spectacular as it shows in the pictures. The condo was so tastefully decorated. I highly recommend this place. Honestly, I was so comfortable there, I could stay forever. So glad that there were two bathrooms. Living couch turned into comfortable, thick, leather futon bed (nothing cheap about anything in this place). If you choose to stay here, you will not be disappointed. (If you don't have the homeaway app on your phone, let Marianna know so that you can communicate via regular email. Also, if you need wifi, make sure the password is clear to you.)
