Kona Isle is a taste of the real aloha of Hawaii. After a day of sightseeing and beaches, enjoy the relaxation of our barbecue area with picnic tables near the shore, or reclining on lounges under the palm trees on the white sand beach, where you can watch the sunsets and whales in the winter. Our pool is solar heated so it is comfortable all year. There is a salt-water pool adjacent to the property that is great fun when the waves are pounding in.

Kailua Town is 2 ½ miles north and Keauhou is 5 miles to the south; both with shopping, restaurants, music, snorkeling, and grocery stores.

We hope to make your visit to the Big Island and Kailua-Kona a wonderful experience.

About Joanne Broadhurst

Hawaii has always been a special place for both Jack and me until he passed away in Janaury 2015.. He started coming in the 1970's. When we met in the late 1980's, Kona was the first place we spent a vacation and we have been coming back every year since then. The rest of the year is spent in Oregon in a small town outside of Portland. We are both Oregonians. I'm a native and Jack was a transplant from Montana. My pastime is Oregon history and Jack loved to garden and grows great vegetables.

Joanne Broadhurst purchased this condo in 1990

Why Joanne Broadhurst chose Kona Coast

Kona Isle became our second home almost accidentally. We were vacationing in Kona in the spring and were looking for a place for our next visit. After spending a few weeks here we knew this was where we wanted to be. And we have never regretted our decision. It is really a special place for beauty, relaxation, friendliness and close to all the attractions, shopping and restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

Sometimes the major decision of the day, after breakfast on the lanai, is whether to go down to the beach and sit under a tree in a lounge chair and read, swim a bit, or do some sightseeing. All we know is that soon it is time for dinner and we haven't done all we planned on doing. Life goes slower in Kona. Or it can go as fast as you want.

Alii Drive

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect,accurately described by the owner. Owner provided all essential information. BBQ area consisted of 3 burners, so no waiting list was required. Beside that tables, lounges, all within a short distance from the surf. The property is very well maintained, with beautiful garden, full of exotic trees and shrubs, and pleasant, clean swimming pool. I would recommend this property, and I would like to come again.

Pleasant and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Kona Isle is well located with easy access to downtown Kailua. The property is very well maintained, nice pool and waterfront amenities. The unit was clean and the owner Joanne was on site and very helpful. The only slight negative would be the kitchen utensils and cookware,(a little dated and some need replacement). We would recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Great little place in a great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Kona Isle in Kailua-Kona and I only wish we could have stayed longer! The condo, while small, was more than suitable for our family of 2 adults and 2 children. Our girls could have stayed in the pool from 9 to 9 if up to them as it was consistently the perfect temperature. The view from the picnic area was amazing and we saw humpback whales (Feb. is prime viewing time) and spinner dolphins flipping out of the water - amazing!! The vast majority of the permanent residents and other guests were super friendly and loved to chat. Lots of Canadians come here so it helps to know your hockey!

The location is perfect in terms of getting around the island as we explored a lot of different beaches north and south, lava tubes, and also spent an overnight in Volcano National Park at the Volcano House Hotel.

Some hints:

Definitely hit Kahalu'u Beach Park. This might be the best snorkeling I have ever done with tons of tropical fish and even the occasional eel and loads of green turtles in the vicinity.

If you like Vietnamese food, Ba-Le was really good and cheap and if you crave some authentic Hawaiin food, Da Poke Shack was a fantastic choice.

We'll be back!

Small place, close to everything

  • 4 of 5

This place is a little dated but comfortable. The first night we arrived we noticed roach traps everywhere. This was a big concern for us. The following day we spoke to the owner and she assured us it was from last spring when the buildings got tented and sprayed for bugs. We did not see any live bugs in our stay.

One the other hand this place has everything you could ever want in it. Beach chairs, boogie board, towels, paper towels, some condiments, laundry derterjent and on and on.

It was great having the laundry facilities. The free wifi worked great. The view was nice without being so close to the ocean that the waves might keep you up at night. The building an location felt very safe. The pool was great. Close to lots of beaches.

The owner was around and very helpful as was the building manager.

The day after we arrived a new lazy boy arrived now the couch and the fridge just need to be replaced.

I would recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Salt air is hard on appliances and the refrigerator is next on our list to continue to upgrade the unit. Roach traps are there for a purpose. They are needed to keep the roaches out as they are a common nuisance in any tropical area.

serene location with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Kona Isle condo. The view of the ocean was great, it was located close to shopping and restaurants and the neighbors were quiet and respectful. The only downfall which we knew about ahead of time was the lack of an air conditioner but there were plenty of fans available for our use. We will definately recommend this place to others!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Having our guests enjoy their trip is our number one hope. We believe the ocean breezes and fans help to make this a tropical trip without being behind closed doors. Mahalo.

THe condo is conveniently located on Alii Drive which runs along the ocean from Kailua town to the Keauhou area. It is an easy walk into town and a fairly regular shuttle bus system. This area of the Big Island still has a small town feel with many of the major retailers on the outskirts of town such as Target, KMart, WalMart, Costco, and Safeway, Lots of restaurants and shopping within 2-5 miles each direction. Gorgeous beaches such as Kua Bay, Hapuna, Mauna Kea, to the north beyond the airport. Two major historic sites or museums. Hulihe'e Palace, one of 3 remaining royal palaces, located downtown Kailua across from the oldest church in Hawaii. South of Kona is the Pu'uhonua o Honaunau (Place of Refuge) historic site. Just a few of the wonderful spots to visit.
