Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Newly Remodeled 1 Bed 2 Bath Gem With Beautiful Ocean Views.

Whether you are an Ironman triathlete or an ocean enthusiast, this stunning, just remodeled property, will please all. It's location in the downtown Kona, is lively and in the heart of all the amenities. Restaurants, shopping, the ocean are literally at your doorstep. It is roomy enough for up to 4 guests, as there is a sleeper sofa. 2 spacious bathrooms provide comfort for all the guests. The amazing chef's kitchen has it all at your fingertips and is open in a great room atmosphere. The furnishings are high end and designed to entertain. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and the bed is king size. The walk-in closet has ample space for your belongings. The lanai looks out onto the ocean and also, to the pool and immaculately kept gardens. The 2 chaise lounges are a great spot to sit and view the ocean with your favorite cocktail and the dining table seats up to 4. If you are competing in the Ironman, it is a stones throw from the Expo/finish line. If you are a spectator, the athletes can be seen sitting on our beautiful lanai. The pool is pristine and excellently maintained. There is a lovely waterfall feature and a BBQ for your convenience. There are cooling trade winds and gorgeous sunsets. There is a festive night life and live music usually morning to night. It's relaxing to sit and sip a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee house on the ocean, listening to live music while you people watch. It is fabulous to head over to any local restaurant or bar and watch the sunset with your friends or family sharing some wine. Don't forget to walk to yoga class and then hit the farmer's market for the freshest local produce. Alii drive is the greatest spot for athletes to get a good long run in and train right where the Ironman competitors compete. White sand beaches like Lunapule and king Kamehameha beaches and are within walking distance. Even try renting a paddle board or kayak at King Kam beach and see how far you can go. Grocery stores are with in a couple miles but don't worry, if you forget something there is a convenient store a couple doors down. So, creating a delicious master piece in this wonderful kitchen is a snap. There is something for everyone at the Kona Alii and we hope you enjoy your stay.

About Donald & Joanna Netzke

We reside in Southern California where we are raising our children. We have many family members dispersed amongst the Hawaiian islands and we visit them frequently. We travel extensively internationally as well. We appreciate the comforts of home when we travel, so it is with great pleasure that we can share our home with other travelers.

Donald & Joanna Netzke purchased this condo in 1998

Why Donald & Joanna Netzke chose Kona Coast

There just is not any other spot in the world as unique as downtown Kona. We have been part-time residence for years and we still are leaning new treasures that the Big Island has to offer. Plus, we like to spend time with our family members here in the islands and we have created many lasting memories for our children here and yet still have more to come.

What makes this condo unique

This location is what sold us. We feel we can easily go an entire week without having to get in a car. The beauty of this spot is that it has it all within arms reach. Honestly though, the view from the lanai is hypnotic and with the breeze and the fresh ocean air, we can hardly peel ourselves away from the chaise lounges. Many good naps have occurred there!

Kona Stay

  • 5 of 5

I'd like to thank Joanna Netzke and Home Away for a very pleasant stay. The building was centrally located in Kona, and within walking distance to downtown restaurants, shops, and beaches, especially those located along Ali'i Drive. Ms. Netzke provided concise, easy-to-understand directions about the condo that made our stay very enjoyable and hassle-free. She responded quickly to my few questions in a professional and friendly manner. The amenities in the condo were well-maintained and the place itself was comfortable, clean, and the decorations aesthetically pleasing.

I'd definitely recommend the condo to couples who want to stay in Kona. We used it as our "home base" for a number of day excursions to various parts of Hawai'i, from Mount Kilauea to Hilo. For those wishing to surf, the west side surfing beaches of Kona (e.g., Honl's, Banyans, Lyman's, etc.) are all within a short drive of the condo complex.

A quick word on Kona itself. The town is fun and lively but still has a laid-back feel that distinguishes it from some of the larger and busier places in Hawai'i. I especially liked the fact that by sunset the town quieted down. This is not to say there isn't night life for those seeking such things. But there is something unabashedly appealing sitting at a quiet eatery, listening to the sounds of night broken only by a man strumming his ukulele.

Amazing home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was amazing with everything one could think of!!!! The home is very modern and comfortable. The view of the ocean and hearing the crashing waves is just breathtaking! There were a few days that an A/C was much needed, but we survived. There are many fans in the home as well as a very large patio door! The location was perfect! Being right downtown Kona, we walked to many stores and or restaurants! I loved our stay at this home! Also, owners are extremely communicative and were always available to answer questions!!!

Great Place to stay in downtown Kailua Kona!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Kona Alii! The condo was very clean and had been recently updated. The hosts were very attentive and thought of all of the little things - there were beach towels and chairs, snorkel equipment and even some coolers to keep your drinks cool at the beach! The location can't be beat - right in downtown Kona within walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars. On Friday and Saturday night you can hear a little of the late night activities but it wasn't enough to disturb our sleep. We would definitely stay here again!

perfect Kona condo!

  • 5 of 5

By far exceeded our expectations! This condo was recently remodeled and is beautiful. The building location is right on Alii drive and directly across from the water. You can hear the ocean waves crashing at night and the sunset is beautiful from the lanai. This condo was perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 young children). The pillows weren't the best, so I'd advise you bring your own from home. Otherwise, all amenities were included. Can't beat the location plus the quality of the unit for the price. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone! Great owners who were very responsive, helpful and hospitable.

6 Weeks Of Paradise...Location Location, Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

The 3 of us (me, wife, daughter) stayed in the unit for 6 weeks beginning the middle of December 2015. It was perfect for us. My daughter (18) slept on a (deluxe) air mattress that came with the unit. It was very convenient as she was off to the side and we didn’t have to mess with the foldout couch every day. The many fans in the unit and ocean breezes made the lack of AC a non issue for us (and I really prefer AC). The covered parking spot was in the shade. The limited direct sun on the lanai made it very comfortable to be on at any time of the day and the ocean view from it is awesome! You can hear the waves crashing at any time but especially at night. Having two bathrooms was perfect, one for my wife and I and one for my daughter. The description and pictures of the unit are spot on, it’s just as advertised. And what a location!!! I tried to book again for next year but it’s already taken. Bummer!! Mahalo Joanne….Greg

This is a downtown urban Hawaiian village like no other spot in the world. Travelers come from all across the globe especially to watch the Ironman competition which occurs directly in front of our building! It's a once in a lifetime experience just to watch. Our place is only a 15 car ride to a white sand secluded beach or a 2 hour ride to the majestic Volcano's National Park Kilauea. If you feel like staying home just walk across the street and order a cocktail while you watch the sunset at Huggo's on the Rocks. There is always too many choices and never enough time!
