About Jinger

My husband and I fell in love with the Big Island while honeymooning in Kona in 2004. We bought a home near Southpoint in 2007 and purchased our Kona condo in 2011. We combine warm aloha with southern hospitality and strive to exceed your expectations!

Jinger purchased this condo in 2011

Why Jinger chose Kona Coast

The minute I walked into our Kailua Kona condo and saw the gorgeous ocean view, I knew this was the place for us! We are right in the middle of everything and enjoy leisurely walks by the bay, to the shops and to a variety of restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

There are so many wonderful things we enjoy about our Kailua Bay Hideaway! The view of the ocean from our lanai, watching the dolphins play, the cruise ships and activities in the water, the convenience of being in the heart of Kona and in walking distance of everything, the variety of restaurants and shops, the pool, being beside the Mokuaikaua Church and across the street from Hulihee Palace! What's not to love?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a wonderful place. Coffee on the lanai was the best.

Fantastic condo in Kona.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was located right in town, close to shops, cafes, beach etc. It was well laid out, had amazing water views and was very well appointed.

The on site manager and the owners were very helpful and made our stay very comfortable.

The Kona Canoe Club and Kona Inn across the road were great places to eat, Kope Lani downstairs does the best coffee in town!

We went for the Queen Liliuokalani canoe race and this apartment was central to all our activities. We'd definitely recommend it to anyone - and we hope to make it back again soon!

I wasn't able to book this place but Jinger was VERY HELPFUL

  • 5 of 5

I'm writing this review because it's information I would like to have if I was considering booking.

I had a very narrow window of opportunity to book a place on Konacoordinating flight, car, departure hotel, time off work for both of us, etc. Jinger worked with me and went out of his way to help me. When all the stars failed to line up Jinger processed a refund within 10 minutes of my request. From my experience Jinger is someone you can trust to help you meet your needs and expectations BEFORE he meets his own.

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa for taking the time to write a review when you didn't even get to stay Gene! Please be assured that we will be happy to work with you if you can get the stars to line up in the future. We want our guests to feel like ohana every step of the process. Sometimes things don't work out and that's okay; we appreciate your giving us notice as soon as you knew your schedule wasn't going to work this time. We look forward to having you stay soon!

What can I say? Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to Kona for years as my escape from the rat race of work and city life. I have stayed at several different places over the years and I've used VRBO/HomeAway on each occasion. Every condo owner says "nice, clean, quiet", "best location, convenient to town, blah, blah, blah". Well, I can tell you, I finally found one that lives up to the description Jinger and Roger provided. This unit is clean, comfortable and truly the most convenient location! I could walk to everything! Even though the address is on Alii Drive, you hear NO NOISE at all coming from the town! In fact, this whole complex is very well run, quiet and clean. I particularly appreciate how well the unit is stocked with all the essentials you'll need for your stay. I walked in, unpacked, purchased a little food and I was all set for a wonderful stay. Let me say again, Jinger and Roger were amazing to work with. Ultra-responsive and truly care that you have a "perfect" vacation on the Big Island. I can assure, I will be back and this will be my first choice to stay every time! Thank you Jinger and Roger.

Perfect Quiet Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Jinger and Roger for sharing their place with us! The unit was as described with a very well outfitted kitchen. We especially appreciated having tupperware to use for our picnic lunches while out sightseeing. The unit was clean and the provided beach equipment and towels were appreciated and in great condition. The location was very convenient in terms of access to the highway, airport and shops (groceries, gas, etc.). Walking distance to Alii Drive is a huge bonus! This gave us easy access to restaurants, shops and the beach! The view was truly beautiful and we enjoyed sitting out in the morning and evening. Although other units are close by, you don't hear other people very much at all making for great night sleeps. The pool area was spotless and deserted when we used it and made for a quiet and refreshing afternoon. Extra touches like flowers and champagne (for our honeymoon) were very much appreciated and made the stay more homey and personal. We had one small problem connecting to the internet when we first arrived, but it was solved quickly. We emailed late at night and Roger responded to us before we even woke up. His suggested troubleshooting approach worked perfectly. We would definitely stay here again if we are lucky enough to find ourselves back on The Big Island! It truly is the perfect little hideaway and home base to use while enjoying the splendour of the island.

Great value! Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Jinger was awesome and very accessible. The condo had lots of nice amenities (i.e. beach chairs, great towels, hair products). The price was great. The location was great if you plan to spend most of the day exploring and then want to walk to Kona restaurants and bars at night.

Walking Distance in Kona

  • 3 of 5

We had some mixed feelings about our recent stay at the Kona Plaza. To start the positive column, the property is immaculately clean. We caught the cleaning lady on the way out. She was a very pleasant introduction to the bright and cheery Kona locals. The Lanai was huge and nicely complemented with furniture and overhead fans. We had two negatives to note that are totally out of the hands of the owners. One, the building seems kind of sterile without much external decor. Finally, there is a restaurant directly below the condo with an external air conditioner / fan that is very loud. It was disheartening to have such an awesome view and huge Lanai but have to ignore the fan. Overall, the Condo would not be my first choice for a quite beach getaway. I picked it for location and is fit the bill very well. The location is easy walking distance to several restaurants, shops and a fantastic outdoor market. We had a short stay in preparation for a loop around the island. This was our third island visit and the Big Island is our favourite. Thanks so much, Aloha

Owner's Response: We are glad you chose to stay with us for the beginning of your trip around the Big Island. Unfortunately, with modern conveniences come modern noise, as with the air conditioning unit on the restaurant below our condo. However, the fan does block street noise, which is a positive aspect. We have many repeat visitors who love Kona Plaza and favor our unit. We hope to welcome you back on your next Big Island adventure..

Stay in the heart of historic Kailua-Kona with a beautiful ocean view. Walk to shops, restaurants, beach and pier. The first Christian church built in Hawaii, Mokuaikaua, is next door to the complex and can be viewed from the the third and fourth floor sundecks. It's a beautiful church and still holds regular church services. The Hulihe'e Palace, previously the vacation home of Hawaiian royalty is located across the street from Kona Plaza on Ali'i Drive. It's now a museum run by the Daughters of Hawaii and there is frequently events held on the ocean-side lawn. The Farmer's Market is a short walk from the condo on Ali'i, offering fresh tropical fruits, souvenirs, homemade items and clothing.
