Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom Condo, Practically On the Beach, Superior Ocean View

Only 200 Feet to Shoreline, Free WiFi

Aloha. You will love the view! We believe this condo offers what may be the Best Ocean View of all 1 bedroom units in Alii Villas. It is on the third (top) floor for the best view (like most condos in Kona, Alii Villas has no elevators so the trade off to get the best view is to climb 30 stair steps). This unit is only 200 feet from the rocky shoreline, so the sound you hear will be the waves.

The lanai is larger than most you find in Kona condos, so you can hang loose with your favorite beverage while you watch the sunset. Or have breakfast at the teak bistro table that seats 4 and sip your coffee knowing that you truly have arrived in paradise.

The bedroom has a queen size bed, walk-in closet, ceiling fan, and even a peek-a-boo view of the ocean. A queen size sofa sleeper is in the living room.

Alii Villas is one of the most popular Oceanfront Condominium complexes in Kona for vacation rentals, just 1.3 miles (2 km) south of downtown Kailua, and only 10 miles from Kona International Airport. Sand beaches may be found 0.6 miles north, or 2 miles south.

You can pack light thanks to the Washer & Dryer in the unit (we even supply laundry detergent). The kitchen has every amenity you should need -- just add food and beverages.

Fed up with resort and hotel fees? Check out our list of amenities, all free. There is never a hidden charge nor surprise fee at checkout.

A computer with broadband internet service is available so you need not bring your laptop to check email and stay in touch. Bringing some WiFi devices? No problem--we have a wireless router for your use.

We respond promptly to all inquiries. If you do not see a response within 16 hours, please check your spam folder.

We have a strong privacy policy. To prevent your personal information from being harvested and exploited by VRBO, feel free to submit your inquiry using an email address you will abandon after we establish direct communications. If you use a false name or phone number in the inquiry name/phone number boxes, please disclose your correct name and phone number in the comments box where they are less likely to be harvested.

So, come and hang loose, and enjoy our piece of Kona Paradise. Mahalo.

About The Owner

After many years of frequent visits to Hawaii, we were lucky to be able to move to the Hilo side of the Big Island in 2004. While we considered the other islands when it was time for our move, we feel the Big Island is the best island.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why The Owner chose Kona Coast

Although we live near Hilo, when we want a break we head to Kona for great food, the best beaches, and just a whole lot of fun. We wanted a condo for our own use and spent quite a long time looking for just the right place. Alii Villas is that right place--close to downtown Kailua, on the oceanfront, and a well-maintained complex.

What makes this condo unique

The view. We believe this unit has the very best ocean view of any 1 bedroom unit in Alii Villas. We wanted to stay with a 1 bedroom unit, which ruled out the oceanfront units, all of which are 2 bedrooms. When we heard this unit was offered for sale, we jumped at the chance to own it, and hope to share this special place with you.

Great condo and very helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful, very well-maintained and equipped with everything you need. We stayed there with our two year old daughter, we cooked a lot ourselves, we had a lot of laundry to do and we found everything was matching our needs perfectly. Parking and a very nice swimming pool are available. The condo has a nice view and is quiet. The owners are extremely professional and nice. We will certainly come back if we will spend time on Big Island.

Even better the second time around

  • 5 of 5

I provided a review in February 2013, and rather than repeating everything, will provide an update from our latest stay.

We thought this was the perfect condo for our small family on our last visit, so we returned for 2 weeks this time. They made it even better!

We were very happy that we experienced the same, or even better, level of professionalism and hospitality from the owners this time around. The owners make sure nothing is left to chance (keys, supplies, secure payments, etc), while still making us feel very welcome. This condo feels like home. It's practical, has ambiance, great location, well-maintained, well-equipped, and spotless.

New this time around:

- Fresh paint job

- Either I didn't notice the artwork last time, or it's a new addition, but we really liked it.

- New dishwasher and stove

- Bathroom remodel is very nicely done, contemporary, and practical

- They've supplied even more fun supplies, like better boogie-boards and comfy beach chairs. Note that this condo has everything we needed, except swim-suit and flip-flops (OK, we brought a shirt and some undies too, but you get the point). I don't know where they put everything, but it's all in there, without taking up any living space in the condo. This is hands-down the best-equipped VRBO condo we've every stayed at - anywhere.

- New DVD player and a great selection of animated movies let the tired kids hang out and decompress in the evenings so mom and dad could sit on the lanai with a Mai Tai in peace.

-New keyless entry, so we didn't have to worry about who had the key and who was getting locked out. Very handy.

We weren't sure how it would be in august with no A/C. We never had a problem with comfort at all. The condo had been closed up, and we arrived in late afternoon, so it was hot the first few hours. After opening up things, letting the trade winds blow through, and getting the ceiling fans going, we were comfortable for the entire stay.

One thing that sets this condo apart from others we've rented is the supplies. All condos I've rented give us a couple trashbags (great, I have to buy a box of 45 to get us through the week), and maybe 3 coffee filters (so I have to buy 100), and one roll of toilet paper, etc. We had enough here. We replenished some things that we felt we used too much of for Karma's sake. Mahalo!

This condo was excellent for my husband and I. We enjoyed the nice amenities provided for our use in the condo & at the beach. The owners were accessible to answer our questions before arriving and took good care to make sure our stay was wonderful. Loved the pool & Lanai with sunsets!

Fantastic Owners and Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property are exceptional. They are organized, thorough, caring and go out of their way to make you feel at home. They guide you simply and clearly through the rental procedures and use of their condo. The listing was accurate and the owners allowed the use of personal high quality items such as the beach chairs, boogie boards, computer/internet, etc. The property was exceptionally clean, highly maintained and well equipped. We would definitely return to this condo and strongly recommend it. Our recommended nearby activities are kayaking and snorkeling at Capt Cook Monument, Manta Ray Night Dive or snorkeling and power hang gliding. The owners and the property are the best we have encountered in the rental of many condos. Thank you to the owners for a most pleasurable and relaxing stay in Kona.
