Kalanikai is a small complex with an 'old-Hawaii' feel. Located in the heart of downtown Kona, it provides conveniences not available in most condo complexes, yet in a lush Hawaiian setting. Our place is on the second floor.
Walk a block to the oldest church in the Hawaiian Islands, as well as along the sea wall, pier, and to restaurants, the farmer's market and other shopping. Walk to the Kona Inn Shopping Center and listen to Bosco the One Man band 7pm to 9pm Friday and Saturday nights. We are 4 miles from Cosco and near Walmart, Safeway, Longs, banks and the post office.
Our Kalanikai home has a full kitchen, with a breakfast bar. We have a large screened lanai that looks over the garden and resident Red Headed Cardinals. We have beach chairs, towels, coolers and some snorkel gear available. We have wireless internet. We also have a 42 inch HDTV in the living room, and an HDTV in the bedroom. There is a lovely pool and BBQ area available for dining and fun. We have a designated parking stall, just a few feet away from the stairs, assigned to our home.

We love Kailua and the Big Island of Hawaii. We bought our second home in 2003. We rented it as a long term rental for several years. At this time in our lives we are spending time at our place and sharing it with other's is a way to 'have our cake and eat it too'. We hope you will love Hawaii as much as we do and make wonderful memories at Kalankai and on the Big Island.
Great location, clean, quiet, and comfortable. A/C greatly appreciated. Lovely tropical setting. Several excellent guide books for the Big Island. Bruce and Bernie were outstanding owners! Great communication. They truly want you to have the best experience possible. No problems because they've thought of everything.
I spent 5 days at this unit. The Kalanikai complex is very nice, and full of very nice people. While I was there I looked at a few units for sale, and Bruce and Bernice's place ranks up as a top unit. They do a nice job of providing a home away from home. The screened lanai is great for coffee or dinner. The bed is comfortable, and there is adequate storage for your things. The kitchen and bathroom are clean and fully functional. I recommend that you rifle through the cupboards before you shop. There are unopened non-perishables up there. It is an easy walk to Kona town from here, and you really are 3-5 minutes from town by foot. I rented a car, but only used it to go up to Hapuna Beach, and to get groceries. There are a number of cab companies (Uber is illegal in Hawaii) that you could use for this and not need a car at all. Finally, since I was looking for a unit here, I got to interact with the owners more than usual, and they are very nice and helpful people. For the reasonable nightly cost and the high level of convenience, this is a very good opportunity to stay in Kona on a budget and not miss out on anything at all.
The condo needed updating if you were going to live there long term, but as a rental it didn't matter. And the bathroom was annoyingly small. But the great location, and the fact that it had EVERYTHING you could ever want, made it a great place to stay.
This rental is exactly as advertised. The owners are very friendly & professional. They were prompt to answer any questions & have the rental stocked to feel like a home away from home. If you are looking for a comfortable stay close to downtown, this is it!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Kalanikai. It was really clean, the bed was incredibly confortable. There kitchen was better than we expected; plenty of tupperwares, ziploc bags and there were more spices in the apartment than in our own home! Nice and spacious lanai. Great stuff for beach as well. Thank you Bernie and Bruce to share this place with us, we spent a marvelous time out there!
This is property is in a great location within walking distance to the village and major grocery stores. I had arranged a car however returned it after day two as it was not required.
The apartment is clean and has everything you need. The owners are great and very helpful should you need anything. I meet a couple of neighbours who are also very nice and helpful.
I recommend this apartment and Kona....Its a great place and living with the locals made the experience so much better
Kalanikai is located in the heart of Kailua Kona. Many of our guests come here without a car. However, if you want to take in the grandeur of the Big Island you will want to have transportation.
We are just 3-5 minutes walk from many restaurants and shops located along scenic and historic Ali'i Drive. The oldest church in the Hawaiian islands and a royal palace, now museum, are among the attractions 5 minutes walk away.
A protected small beach, suitable for young and old, is less than a 10 minute walk. Great snorkeling is accessible from this area and the site of the Ironman race start, finish, and swim are located here.
Besides snorkeling, there are a range of activities right out your door as well. They include para-sailing, jet skiing, paddle boarding, biking, and kayak and canoe paddling.
If you are not a water enthusiast there are plenty of oceanfront restaurants, lounges, bars, and parks for you to enjoy the good food, cocktails, and a sunset.
You are in the heart of some of Hawaii's rich historical grounds and sites. The oldest church in Hawaii, made of lava and corel with a beautiful Koa interior is just across the street. Kona also has one of the few royal palaces, now a museum, in Hawaii (the only State to have royal palaces) and is located next to the church. One of King Kamehameha I's favorite places, and location of his final days is on the shore of Kailua Bay. The site still holds the heiau and sacred grounds.
Spinner Dolphins put on aerial displays while you watch the sunset or paddle board in Kailua Bay. The Humpback Whales join them from December through March.
When you are ready to venture out of Kona you will find that there are so many sites to see, many withing 30 minutes drive, that you can not possibly see and do everything in a two week vacation. A few spots to hit include: numerous beaches located both north and south of Kona, historical sites that hold communities, sacred grounds, and the best observable petroglyphs in Hawaii. If you venture further away from town you can visit the birthplace of King Kamehameha I, the mountain known as Mauna Kea where the world's finest land-based telescopes peer into the clearest skies in the world, and the world's longest continuously erupting volcano, Kilauea, continues to build the Island of Hawaii. Coffee farms, rugged lava coastlines, historic Hilo town, and botanical gardens all provide many days of sightseeing and outdoor fun.
