KJ’s Place is a newly remodeled condo located in the heart of Kailua-Kona. The kitchen and living room open up to a covered lanai with view of the city and the ocean. Custom touches abound, from the granite countertops to the mahogany in the bathrooms to the grass cloth on the walls. Enjoy the luxury of a California King in the master bedroom after a long day at the beach or the bliss of a rainfall shower after taking in the sights. Don’t worry, the full-size sleeper sofa in the living room is easily as comfortable and the sounds of the ocean will soothe and restore. We want your vacation to be as relaxing and amazing as possible and we hope KJ’s Place is the place you come back to again and again for your Big Island adventures.

Why Joy Knight chose Kailua Kona
KJ's Place comes with an almost full kitchen with everything you’ll need (minus oven and dishwasher). We also have a washer and dryer, free WiFi and cable, plus an oversized storage locker in a common locker room right next to the elevator. You’ll have access to the pool with BBQ grills and a 7th floor sundeck which overlooks Kona. And, of course, Kona, the Big Island, and the Pacific Ocean are quite literally right out the front door. The Kona Ali’i is located in the midst of Kailua-Kona and you will be within walking distance of numerous shops, restaurants, and attractions. Local culture, beaches, and adventure are all excitingly close. Our guest book has a few pages listing many of our (and other people we know) favorite Big Island activities. Please explore, and if you discover an adventure that we don’t know about please let us in on your secret so we can add it to our book and spread the word!
What makes this Condo unique
There are a ton of shops and restaurants within walking distance of KJ’s Place. Short drives down Ali’i Drive get you to beaches great for snorkeling, diving, and surfing. Since it’s one of the main routes for the Ironman Triathlon, Ali’i Drive is perfect for strolling, running, or biking. You have easy access to highways that put the rest of the Big Island at your fingertips. When you’re back and the sun is still out, enjoy the shaded parking that will keep your vehicle cool until your next grand excursion. Please read our guest book for house rules as well as suggested activities. Kona is an amazing place and we hope and pray your stay here is amazing! If it’s anything but, please let us know what we can do to make it better.

Home in paradise!
Wonderful helpful owner, home away from home, view overlooking pool and peek of the ocean, sun deck located on top floor for lovely dinners by sunset, walking distance to everything from the local pier to the best dinners and gelato on the island....just, wow! Joy was amazing in all ways making the visit seamless and enjoyable. All the necessary toys and accouterments one could ever desire in a vacation home. Thanks, Joy, and see you next year!
Great unit, great owners!
I loved this place!
This condo has it all! Probably the most comfortable, well equipped condo I have ever stayed in. A peek-a-boo view of the ocean in a very quiet part of the building. The location couldn't be better, right in the heart of the Kona restaurant and shopping areas. Joy was such a pleasure to do business with, VERY responsive and helpful!
Very comfortable. Great location.
Not only is this condominium comfortable, but we could tell that thought went into furnishing and organizing the unit. It felt like borrowing a friend's condo; it didn't seem like a vacation rental at all.
We would love to return again.
Beautiful condo in the heart of Kona! Owners care about you and are available if you need anything!
This property is exactly as advertised. Very clean and comfortable place. Walking distance to many restaurants, shopping and markets. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to this island🤔� Make sure you ask for the name of the condo complex if you need a taxi, our driver tried to dump us at the wrong place, complaining the whole time about missing other fares with her meter running... The only bad experience of our trip to paradise! Thanks for letting us use your home to explore the island! Aloha and Mahalo!!
Beautiful and comfortable condo with fantastic location and friendly, helpful hosts.
We just loved staying at KJ's place! Their condo is beautifully designed and spacious with a wonderfully comfortable king bed and great A/C for nighttime. The large lanai was a great place to lounge after busy days. We really appreciated all the little extras such as having 2 bathrooms, nice beach towels and boogie boards and recommendations about places to go and things to do. The condo location is so ideal, as you walk right out to Alii Drive with the ocean right there, along with all the shops and restaurants. The condo complex is very clean, safe, friendly and quiet. The covered parking space was an added bonus. We will be coming back and highly recommend KJ's place!
