Overview

About the property

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

This 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?

The Beauty of Kona Isles

  • 5 of 5

Kona Isles is a wonderful place to stay. The sunsets from this beachfront unit are spectacular!! Hauling your luggage to the 2nd floor can be quite strenuous if you are elderly like us. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who wants a very quiet, peaceful, restful stay in Kona. If you want internet service you must either go into the bedroom or visit their very quaint library that is close by. If you want to go downtown, the trolley goes past the front of the condo or you can use Uber. Washer and dryer are an added bonus! I would stay there if we ever returned to Kona.

Owner's Response: We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Kona Isle. We're also well past our youth so elected to buy a condo on the second rather than third floor (where we used to stay on occasion). With a washer/dryer in the unit, we've learned we can pack very light for our visits. There are full time residents in Kona Isle approaching their 90s who live on the upper floors. While we've attributed their vitality to the climate and restful vibe of this place, maybe the exercise they get between their condo and the beach or pool also plays a role. ;-) In a week it seems you'd fully embraced the Kona Isle lifestyle, we look forward to having you back.

Great view and unbeatable sunsets

Well appointed. Everything you need to cook some quick meals. The BBQ area is beautiful. Comfy bed. Perfect for a couple.

The best sunsets-period.

  • 5 of 5

The codo was clean. The bed was very comfortable. The condo was a nice size for the two of us. Great shower. The living room furniture is nice, good tv, but honestly we never turned it on. We spent most of our time on the lanai. The view was breathtaking. The waves breaking were majestic. My favorite was hearing the waves and the birds from the bedroom.

Good pool area, nice BBQ area with propane grills. Wonderful "beach" area to watch the ocean from, when you can tear yourself away from the lanai.

Again-the view, the sunsets, were everything!

To consider though, there is not a swimming area, very rocky, though locals get in and fish and dive. The pool area is fine though. Also the condo is on the second floor, which capitalizes on the view but as there is not an elevator, might be a problem for some. Also I missed having an oven, even though its hot to cook, we ate in most nights. There is a counter oven though, but we mostly used the microwave. All in all great value with stunning scenery,

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide an excellent overview of your visit to our condo. The lanai is also our favorite spot from the first cup of Kona coffee in the morning until the sun sets. The first time we stayed in an oceanfront building at Kona Isle we knew we had found the ideal setting for a relaxing vacation. So when we acquired our unit, the top priority was enlarging the lanai. We're glad you enjoyed it.

Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

The unit had everything we needed and the view was even better than the pictures. The complex is great. We used the grills and ate dinner right on the ocean four of the nights we were there. The location is also perfect. We used the saltwater pool the first couple days while the waves were strong enough to keep the water fresh. We would definitely stay here again if it is available the next time we go to Kona.

Owner's Response: Thanks for mentioning one of Kona Isle's great amenities: barbeques and tables in an ocean setting practically none of the seaside restaurants can equal. While we often eat lunch elsewhere on the island, we prefer sunset dining on our lanai or at the water's edge. We're pleased you also enjoyed staying here and hope you can visit again.

Very comfortable living accommodations with a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly enjoyable vacation for the second time in this condo. The sound a feel of the crashing surf, sight of palm trees, sound of birds and our front row seat to the sea made our experience wonderful. All that we needed was provided in the condo and it was very comfortable. My only request is that internet service is unavailable in this unit and required taking my computer to the library for service.

Owner's Response: Since your first visit, Kona Isle installed two additional routers near the front of the complex to better serve the beach buildings & pool. It helps us use our laptop and IPhone from our unit but we do find the signal influenced by where we are in unit, device and time of day. We're exploring installing a signal booster to improve things. We're flattered you chose to adjust your dates to be able to spend another vacation in our condo and are happy to hear it was an enjoyable one,
