Beautiful Downtown Kona...Oceanfront! Read my reviews!!!



Budget? OCEAN FRONT DOWNTOWN Romantic, Quaint, Tropical & Adventure.

~PRIVATELY OWNED in the heart of Downtown Kona. (Between Huggo's Restaurant & Bubba Gump's.) The Grounds are Beautiful Pristine & Tropical with Tiki Torches lit every night for added Hawaiiana Ambiance.

WALK to everything: Beach, Shopping, Dining, Church, Luau, Grocery, Farmer's Market for local fruit & veggies, etc. You really don't need a car.

(but arrange ahead for cab from airport. approx $40)

There is a shuttle that goes up and down town Ali'i Dr. as well.

FREE PRIVATE WiFi IN ROOM! Wireless & modem. This is an added bonus to our clients to make your stay easy!

Peaceful & Romantic...

CLEAN, NEAT & Charming. Newly Renovated & New Furniture.

~Little kitchenette with 18' x 30' small fridge for basic needs with many small appliances for at home cooking. ~Grounds have BBQ, Pool, Hot Tub.

~Queen bed very comfortable. Also a sofa pull out bed if you don't want to share bed.

~Linens & Bath Towels provided. Cool ocean breezes in this unit. A/C if need.

We love to listen to the ocean right outside. Having dinner on our private lanai watching the sunset into the ocean is a must do. Watch for the 'green flash!'

Once you come here you'll never want to go anywhere else.

Free Onsite Parking is limited first come basis. Security is strict & you need Parking Pass from Security.

24 Hour on-site Security and Cameras.

~On site Coin Washer/Dryers.

This Unit is on THIRD FLOOR. There is NO ELEVATOR. Great for security but pack your suitcase light! Forget something? No worries. Walmart & Ross, etc. close by.

THIS IS A NON-SMOKING UNIT AND SMOKE FREE COMPLEX. It is beyond my control & Security will fine for smoking on grounds or unit. NO PETS OF ANY KIND.

~~My unit is individually owned and operated as some are. Unfortunately some of the other units are not as nice as this unit & can give the Kona Islander a bad reputation. We take great pride in our unit to meet our needs & standards & the needs & standards of our guests.~~

About Gigi Hayes-Polk

We put our heart & soul into our Hawaii Unit. It was remodeled with Hawaiiana Design. We retired and moved to Hawaii for the winters. I came from Buffalo, NY & Cape Cod, MA. My husband from Northern CA. This is a golfers paradise (ask my husband... wink wink ;p) as well as a beach tropical dream. We split our time in Kona & Cape Cod. We rent it out when we are not here. Therefore you will find it CLEAN & NEAT with many small appliances for your needs. Although it is small and the kitchen smaller, it meets our needs. Having the Ocean waves right out the door is what makes it so special. Some of these units at The Islander are not up to par as is ours. We take pride in our unit and reputation. The grounds on the other hand are unbelievably gorgeous and tropical Hawaiiana and well kept. Banana trees onsite and occasionally in lobby you can get some local fruit from the trees! We do BBQ very often and meet people at the pool, hot tub area and it is so much fun. It is quiet and security is amazing. 10 CUBIC FRIDGE! fridge with freezer. (see pics)

Why Gigi Hayes-Polk chose Kona Coast

Kona is laid back. Not the busy hustle and bustle of the city. It has wonderful restaurants and beaches all over the place. It is hard to decide which one to go to.


What makes this condo unique

Being Downtown has it's advantages. You can walk to everything & work off all of the great food. Parking is limited so it's great to not even deal with a car. I have a moped for fun. You can rent them downtown too.

Visit Black, White & Green Sand beaches on Big Island Hawaii. Walk to a Luau at King Kamehameha Hotel.

The view from 346 is spectacular. A well equipped and modern updated studio suite from Gigi.

  • 4 of 5

The property is well situated within walking distance to a full range of restaruants and places of entertainment as well as beaches. Amenities include a full sized fridge and other modern appliances. Parking can be somewhat of a problem with a limited amount of spaces. I recommend Gigi's rental unit 346, and I would definitely come back here. Thanks, Al Brodie

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We enjoyed meeting you and it was our pleasure to accommodate you. Mahalo for your above and beyond kindness. I do understand at certain times of the year in peak season parking can be limited at the doorstep but there is always free parking very close. The good thing is being downtown is a great asset and you don't even need a car. Also there is Enterprise Rental which brings the car right to you. They also pick it up when you're done. This is a great advantage if you want to go here and there for the day or over to the other side of the island. Much Aloha and a hui hou! Gigi and Ray

Fabulous little slice of Heaven Gigi has here!

  • 5 of 5

What an excellent location to walk everywhere, whether it's to the shops, beach farmers market almost next door or many eating spots. Beautiful views from the balcony both day and night, and sleep to the sound of waves crashing from the fold out bed (even with my bad back it was a good nights sleep!). Exceptional equipped kitchen for a studio and Gigi was extremely accommodating! Mom and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit and loved meeting Gigi! Can't wait to go back! Aloha!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful and honest review. I always try to go above and beyond to make sure you have the best stay for your vacation and to see and hear how much you and your mother enjoyed it makes it all the better! It helps others know what to expect. I think that is important as a traveler. I know it coming to Hawaii is a great expense so Guests can be reassured that it was exactly as they envisioned. Much Aloha to you and your mom. It was great to meet you both! Gigi

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, & convenient! Arrive early in the evening to find parking & casually stroll to your Kona nightlife destination, but not before watching the sun set on the water from the oceanfront lanai. Easy checkin/checkout.

Oasis in Kailua Kona

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient location, walking distance to a lot of attractions and my fav restaurant BUBBA GUMP, great food and a fantastic service. Great sunsets, listening to the waves from the balcony. Gigi, the owner was very accommodating and I hope that we will keep in touch, maybe she will visit me in Canada? The swimming pool is surrounded by luscious palm trees, bushes with exotic flowers, friendly people with a smile. I would like to say mahalo to Gigi one more time🐬

Please come back and stay again soon. Much Aloha, Gigi

Located in the Heart of Downtown Kona. Amazing Snorkeling with exotic fish. Many local Adventure Opportunities & Entertainment. Luau within walking distance. Grab some local flyers in the kiosk as you get off the plane!

At night from the lanai there are flood lights illuminating the waves... so neat!

This is the island with the Actively flowing Volcano! A wonder of the world.

Walk to everything! It's ALL here.
