Large Oceanfront 1 BR, 2 bath condo right down town, great Ocean views
The Kona Alii is located right in the heart of Kailua Kona.
Enjoy waking up to the crashing ocean with a cup of world famous Kona Coffee!
This 1 bedroom enjoys the ocean sounds through out. A pull down bed in the living area allows for additional sleeping. Upgraded unit that is well appointed.
Enjoy one of the largest pools in Kona at this community. Tennis and basket ball close by as well.
Stroll down Alii Drive and you will find a variety of shops and restaurants. Nearby restaurants include Splashers Grill, The Fish Hopper, Huggo's, Don the Beachcomber, Kona Inn Restaurant, Kona Canoe Club, Outback Steakhouse, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co, Island Lava Java, and Bongo Bens Island Cafe and the list can go on.
But the town of Kailua also "hides" some very important Hawaii Island historic spots. Both the Hulihee Palace and the Ahuena Heiau are located on Alii Drive. King Kamehameha I spent his last years living near the current site of the King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel. The Ahuena Heiau, located on the grounds of the hotel, is a reconstructed temple rebuilt by Kamehameha himself and is on the register of National Historic Landmarks.
The Kailua Bay pier is a short 10-minute walk, from which most of the boat excursions on the Big Island's west coast depart (snorkel, whale watch, dinner cruise). The pier is the starting and finishing point of the Ironman World Championship (October) and a great place to watch the sunset.
Michael W. from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in November, 2016 Had a very nice stay here. There was plenty of room and seating which was very nice. We did find the place had inadequate lighting especially in the center bathroom and bedroom. Over head lighting would be nice in the bedroom. In addition the beach towels and lanai cushions were spray painted making them very scratchy on the skin. When you are wearing shorts most of the time there is nothing worse than sitting on an irritating seat cushion. This would not stop us from staying here again. Mahalo
Cathy D. from Carbondale, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2016 Had a wonderful time in this remarkable condo. Everything was exactly as described on the site but better. Great digs, pool, view, convenient to amenities. We'll be back!
Rene W. from MT SHASTA, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in March, 2016 Amazing location! Convenient for walking to numerous restaurants, shops, farmers market. Total ocean view from condo for watching sunrise with a cup of Kona coffee and relaxing to a romantic sunset in the evening. All of this and you hear the wonderful ocean waves throughout this oasis.The pool is large enough for swimming laps or just a cool down relaxed environment. Morning and afternoon sun affords all day Vitamin D therapy. Ocean swimming is just a short walk away.Very comfortable home away from home!
Marilyn C. from Del Mar, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2016 Have stayed in this condo a number of times and would definitely stay again. We absolutely love the location. Over the years the furniture has gotten a little worn. Would love to have an end-table between sofa and large chair as there is no place to sit (for example) a glass of wine. Overall, plan to be back.
A guest from Incline Village, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in August, 2015 Very pleasant unit...well-equipped, functional, GREAT views, perfect location for Kailua-Kona activities, great parking arrangement, lovely pool area...We stay annually from ten to fourteen days. This was our third rental of #504.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2015 We had a nice visit and the accommodations were very nice. This was our first visit to Kona so it was in a good location to see the entire island.
Carol W. from Monterey, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in December, 2014 We typically stay on the Kohala Coast or near Keauhou Bay but made the decision to stay at Kona Alii 504 for 8 days. It exceeded our expectation. Given the fact that it is literally in the heart of Kona it felt quite and peaceful in the unit. We loved sitting on the lanai morning, afternoon and night. Parking is easy, the unit is comfortable and everything we needed was readily available. If you are looking for luxury and a resort environment you may not want to stay in downtown Kona, but if you want convenience along with comfort until 504 is highly recommended. We are recommending it to our friends.
A guest from Holland, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in April, 2014 A wonderful condo overlooking the shore. A great balcony to hear the surf and watch the waves. Easy walking distance to many great places of Kona. A beautiful, comfortable and well managed location. We really enjoyed our time here.
A guest from Pendleton, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in February, 2014 Relaxing, fun, and a feel of home. Our condo was so comfortable( except we need one reclining chair) and everything worked and if not was fixed quickly. The office staff was so accommodating and helpful.
Nancy P. from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in August, 2013 This is our second stay here. It was not as clean as last year. Spot on the carpet as you walk into living room. The kitchen floor needed some additional cleaning. The lanai would be so much cleaner if it was tile. the birds like to come and it gets wet in the rain. Overall we love the condo and will stay again.
Butch & Jessie S. from Redding, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2013 Excellent. My son didn't leave the Condo for three days because he just wanted to relax and said the view was fantastic. Perfect location. The area has almost everything you need within a short walking distance. Although beaches and snorkeling areas were close, we did rent a vehicle to get to some of the beaches and snorkel areas north and south of Kona. Anna Marie was five star in putting together our vacation rental package. She was always cheerful very knowledgeable and returned every phone call and answered every question we had. Thanks for a great stay.
A guest from Thayne, WY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 Absolutely no storage in kitchen for groceries, other than refridgerator. Everything else sits on limited counter place, maybe some of the 42 glasses could be stored in the storage facility on each floor. There were 3 of us staying in condo. Daughter slept on murphy bed. No storage there for her clothes, we had to double up in the dresser in master bedroom. We have used murphy beds before and there were drawers and closet space in the frame work around murphy bed.
Rebecca M. from Waianae, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 WE had a great week...THe view was so beautiful we hated to go out and do things. We had two condos-the other one being two floors below. Great week... Highly recommend.
A guest from Portland, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2012 We had a wonderful stay & got our bearings very quickly.Condo 504 is very spacious & well equipped.My wife loved having 2 bathrooms...Great views from the entire unit (even the bedroom if you leave the door open.And even though there is no AC - the cross breezes are perfect.All the fun places are incredibly close (Lava Java in particular - great coffees & great ocean view breakfasts).They have free wi-fi (the condo doesn't).Saw dolphin almost every other day - swimming in the bay with humans training for the Ironman.Amazing beaches about 1/3 hr away (Makalawena is worth the 1/2 mile hike over lava bed).Weather was a constant 79-81 degrees - just a few sprinkles during our 2 weeks there (one short period of massive downpour).Thought we'd see all of the island but stayed Kona & north.A few things to be aware of:Unit is non-smoking - but resident owners are allowed to smoke in other units in the building - and with all those open windows & tropical breezes....Again - no wi-fi in the unit - so you have to spend some quality time @ Lava Java if you need to connect (I-pads & the like excluded).Weekends can be fun - but if you retire early - the party crowd is 5 stories below on the streets - till 2:30-3:00 am.All in all - great time in Kona @ Kona Alii 504!PD & SD
A guest from Dakota Dunes, SD recommends this property. Stayed for 42 days in January, 2012 We were not happy that we could not use a credit card for the rental unless we paid a fee. That seems unusual for a rental company.There are a few downsides about this unit: the lighting in both bathrooms is nonexistentand there are way too many glasses and dishes.There was nowhere to put canned goods and we stayed six weeks!
A guest from Provo, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in May, 2011 We've stayed in this unit several times, and have always loved it. Nothing much has changed. Everything was great -- except the sheets and matress protector had plainly not been changed when we went in, which is really out of character for this owner.
A guest from Happy Valley, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 17 days in February, 2011 The Property Mgmt. was wonderful and very helpful. We return every year to the same condo. Very happy with it all!
JOY W. from St. GEORGE, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 12 days in October, 2010 FIRST OFF WE WANT TO THANK THE GIRLS AT THE OFFICE WHO HELPED US WITH ALL THE RENTAL INFORMATION AND SET UP FOR OUR STAY.THE 4 OF US TRULY ENJOYED THE CONDO AT KONA ALII #504. WE WERE CELABRATING OUR 50TH AND OUR SON 1ST ANNIVERSARIES. THE VIEW AND SOUNDS OF THE WAVES FROM THE CONDO CAN NOT BE BEAT ANYWHERE. WE FEEL THAT WE COULD NEVER HAVE FOUND A BETTER PLACE. WE WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY DISAPOINTED STAYING ANYWHERE ELSE. WE SAY THANKS TO JOE AND VIRGINIA CARVALHO FOR TELLING US ABOUT KNOA ALII.THANKS ALSO TO THE OWNERS OF THE CONDO FOR SHARING IT WITH OTHERS. IT IS THE ONLY PLACE WE WOULD STAY IF WE EVER RETURN TO KONATHANKS TO ALLJERRY, JOY, DARREN,WENDY WILSON
Alicia B. from Happy Valley, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 17 days in February, 2010 We love the condo. Would not stay in any other on the property. We were VERY disappointed in the fact that the shades were not put up. They were not up last year either. The ongoing renovation was noisy and disruptive to an otherwise peaceful and much needed vacation. The lounge chairs on the 7th floor sundeck need to be replaced. The flooring on the deck is DANGEROUS. We see how the owners are wanting to improve the property. I hope those improvements are included. As a result of ongoing work, with a worker jumping onto our lanai and NO shades/curtains to protect our privacy, we were forced to consider our dress attire and other such private matters at least 8 hours a day. For a married couple, that is NOT the best situation while on vacation. I will say that the contact (Susan McKay) was as helpful as she could be. I understand that some things are out of her control. I would NOT recommend all condos at this property. We have had the displeasure of staying in two different ones before #504. But I would trust the agent, Susan, to find a place worthy of the prices that are charged.
Susan B. from Naples, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 12 days in October, 2009 Property was very noisy during our stay. A famuky wut screaming chilren disurbed our stay day to night, Kona ALii needs disable access to Alii Drive, It is too steeo and sangerus to go through the parking kt.
