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.

Why Bernice and Bruce chose Historic Kailua Village

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.

                                                                Jesse T.

                                                                As described. Nice place super convenient close to downtown Kona. No problems while I was there. The A/C unit is in the window in the living room, so I slept on the murphy bed to keep cooler at night. Murphy bed was a double or queen and super comfortable so no worries there. There are fans in the bedroom as well though. Otherwise kitchen was minimal but stocked with all the basics I needed to be able to cook food from the grocery store. Plenty of space and light coming in from the big window. Neighbors were mostly quiet expect one night where they were doing some kind of picture hanging on the wall or something a little late, all other nights totally fine. Bruce was great, easy, responsive. I locked myself out one day and he was able to get me in from another tenant without too much trouble, which was awesome! Great place to stay and great hosts. Appreciate it!

                                                                Great 10-day stay!

                                                                This condo was well furnished and right next to the relaxing pool. The complex was one block from Alii Dr., where all the shops and eateries are, so this would make a great home base, even without a car. Owner was quick to respond to a couple of questions, and I would definitely stay here again! --Mike Ramos

                                                                Beautiful, stunning, gorgeous

                                                                The property was beautiful and its closeness in relationship to all major tourist attractions was phenomenal.

                                                                Clean, nice and exotic

                                                                Very well maintained property, with all needed amenities, including laundry in the unit and pool right below. Excellent lanai (balcony) with insect net and luxurious tropical greens insuring privacy... For parties over 2, the Murphy bed is more than comfortable! Only 2 little minuses: a little hot, and noisy sometimes in the bedroom. Anything else was perfect! Highly recommend! Cannot beat this price!

                                                                Convenient Downtown Location

                                                                I was in Kona for work and the location of the Condominium was near my office. The unit was very comfortable and clean. The a/c cooled the living room and kitchen and there were fans for the bedroom and bathroom areas. The bed was very comfortable. The washer and dryer came in handy for my stay. Could have used a sunk in sink for the bathroom instead of the bowl sink and the door to the bathroom was in the way. I like that the unit was conveniently located near the pool. I had a problem with the shower head and Bruce was very responsive and got right on it and had it fixed by the time I got home. I would definitely stay there again.

                                                                Wonderful week in Kona

                                                                What a great location, everything was easily within walking distance if you wanted to walk! If we had not been with a group we probably could have skipped the car rental. Their home was very nice, there was everything you needed for home & the beach. The Murphy bed was a bonus, both beds were very comfortable. I recommend going through the bins under the TV on the first night. There is a ton of information and history for the Big Island...Definitely recommend their home, they were very responsive to all questions and concerns.


                                                                Kailua-Kona, HI, USA

                                                                Aloha! 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. Hawaii TAT No.-W39339936
