Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Only one opening available for balance of the year. Five nights in early November is a perfect time to relax without the crowds. Shop for exotic gifts and come home rested and ready for the holidays. Best of all, you'll get a reduced rate for all this:

The unit provides a panoramic view of the ocean framed by palm trees from the living/dining and kitchen areas through twelve foot sliding glass doors. Relax on the expanded private lanai overlooking the surf, marine life and unsurpassed Kona sunsets. This second floor end unit in the desirable beachfront "E" building is quiet, secure and private. Full remodel completed in 2014 provides a bright and contemporary feel that is open to the view and ocean breezes. The updated kitchen features a dishwasher and eating bar. The ceramic tile bathroom has a walk-in shower. The bedroom includes a wall of windows that can be opened to the trade winds and the sound of near-by waves.

To help you enjoy your visit, there is beach gear, binoculars to watch passing whales (in season), guidebooks and a reserved stall in an adjacent lighted parking area. We have assembled an on-island team that takes pride in insuring that everything is extra clean and in good repair, as well as a concierge if you need assistance in making any special arrangements for your visit.

Kona Isle delivers the old Hawaii that visitors dream about. It is a small, intimate resort of low rise buildings nestled in lush, pristine landscaped grounds. A heated fresh water swimming pool next to a private beach area affords plenty of space to soak up the sun or relax with a book from the Kona Isle library. There is also an adjacent ocean-side surf fed pool. Gas bar-be-ques are maintained for your use in a lighted ocean front picnic area, a favorite gathering spot for sunset viewing. Kona Isle is a Wi-Fi enabled, non-smoking facility.

Kona Isle is situated in the heart of the Kona coast on the ocean side of Ali'i Drive about 1 1/2 miles from Kailua-Kona restaurants, shops and nightlife. Both a convenience store and farmers market are within a 1 block walk. The Alii Drive shuttle bus also stops near-by. Some of the island's best snorkeling and surfing spots are less then a ten minute drive.

The laid back, serene ambiance within the complex coupled with the convenient location accounts for the many repeat visitors. This unit puts you out front, right on the ocean -- no roads to cross, no buildings restricting your view, no vehicles parked in sight. How close is the ocean?

home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This year was our 2nd stay at Jim & Penny's condo. We love everything about it, the location is close/walkable to town, the grounds are well kept, it has 2 movable fans which help keep the humid warm air circulating, sitting on the deck watching the sunset is great, this year we saw dolphins swim by every morning & our favorite thing is going to sleep & waking up hearing the ocean! Jim & Penny's condo has quickly become our home away from home and we look forward to returning next year!

Owner's Response: We can relate to the joy of returning to a place knowing in advance it's where you'll want to be. When your visit includes helping to stage the popular (& crowded) Iron Man, finding that right spot becomes even more of a challenge. We enjoy sharing our condo with you knowing in advance it will fulfill your expectations. Thanks for regularly making it your home on your special trip.

Our overall impression was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed drinking our morning coffee on the lanai and watching the Dolphins swim by! Then the evening with the spectacular sunsets from the lanai as well as the wonderful BBQ area provide on the property.

The condo was very close to awesome snorkeling , shoping, and the farmers market. The grounds were gorgeous! I think we enjoyed every color of Hibiscus there is. Jim & Penny gave us vey detailed instructions on getting to the condominium as well as things to see and places to eat. My husband and I have wonderful memories that will stay with us for a lifetime. Look forward to returning soon.

Thank you,

Tom & Tami

Owner's Response: When you're fortunate enough to have a home in this location, it almost seems wrong not to share it. We fully understand the memories many guests take away from a visit here and to be able to help make that possible is very rewarding. We're glad it helped make your vacation special.

Best condo in Kona

  • 4 of 5

Love this condo complex, peaceful, quiet and very well maintained. Condo was well stocked with everything you need. View is to die for! A little warm in the summer with no air conditioner. Would definitely stay here again.

Absolutely Perfect Condo in an enchanting location!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous Condo/Perfect Setting: if you're planning a visit to Kona, this location is peaceful and beautiful beyond belief. Central to everything yet an oasis from any hustle and bustle. This is not our first time visiting the Big Island but when we return we'd live to stay with Jim and Penny again! Their condo is lovely, spacious and clean with awesome ocean views and perfect sunsets every night. It is part of a perfectly manicured property with a lovely pool. A walk to town or short drive to many a dive, volcano, Mauna Kea, great beaches...thank you Jim and Penny...we hope to be able to.stay with you again!!

Owner's Response: Wow! It's almost humbling to have a guest this impressed by the beauty, peacefulness and surroundings of our little Kona hideaway - especially when they're coming from a famous, world class island like Manhattan. Seriously, we really love it when guests find this kind of experience - it's a big reason for sharing our bit of paradise. You're welcome to visit again anytime (except next February when we need the enchantment).
