About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

My wife and I spent several years going to this condo as our vacation get away, and were finally able to buy it. We feel that the location is the best in the Kona Islander Inn complex, and the view is wonderful. We have spent lots of time living there, and have put lots of effort into decorating it.

Please visit our website if you're interested, you can just do a web search for, 'ihu nui vacation rentals' if you would like. You can see many more pictures, and get some other information. We hope to speak to you soon!

About The Owner

We just had some sashimi and garlic bread, watched the sunset, and we couldn't be happier!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2003

Why The Owner chose Kona Coast

This studio condo was a dream come true for my wife and I when we purchased it in

February 2003 from Linda and Grant Baseman. We feel that it is the nicest studio in

the Kona Islander complex.

Perfect condo in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Things we loved:

Lovely little lanai overlooking the ocean! We enjoyed having coffee there, dinner, cards, sunset.

Condo had everything and I mean everything you needed. Great organization!

Proximity to the ocean, restaurants, coffee, farmer's market.

The pool and bbq!

The grounds were lovely and everyone there was very friendly.

Thing we didn't love:

We couldn't stay 10 more days!!!

Thank you Rick and Colleen, for a lovely stay. Your place is amazing and we're so glad we were there. Mahalo!

There is no place like Home!

  • 5 of 5

Being the owners of our unit #250 it so nice to return each time

to find our studio as pristine a when we left. When you have a piece of

old Hawaii like the Kona Islander Inn which was built in 1978, there are

a few things that you don't have control of on the outside, but when you

step inside we thank Lenora, our caretaker for the awesome job she does!

Aloha to all our past and future guests!

Cheers! Rick and Colleen

Central location, great "in house" amenities

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very well maintained; clean, full of every possible kitchen gadget, picnic supplies and outdoor supplies! Clearly, Rick (owner) takes great pride in his condo and it shows! From the time of booking until we got home, Rick was kind and helpful and replied quickly to all of our inquiries.

We would highly recommend this rental.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this condo for 9 days and would not have chosen any other place. The location is right in the centre of town, across from the beach and near all the shops. It was a minute walk to the local market, which was very handy. The room itself is comfortable and has everything we needed to be self-sufficient. By staying here you also have access to a pool/spa and WIFI. It's a very affordable option; I highly recommend it!
