Kona Isle is a taste of the real aloha of Hawaii. After a day of sightseeing and beaches, enjoy the relaxation of our barbecue area with picnic tables near the shore, or reclining on lounges under the tropical trees on the white sand beach, where you can watch the sunsets and whales in the winter. Our pool is solar heated so it is comfortable all year. There is a salt water pool adjacent to the property that is great fun when the waves are pounding in.

Kailua VIllage is about 1 1/2 miles north and Keauhou is 5 miles south, both with shopping, restaurants, music, snorkeling and grocery stores.

We hope to make your visit to Kona and the Big Island a wonderful experience.

About Joanne Broadhurst

My husband Jack and I purchased our first condo here at Kona Isle in 1990 and have spent winters here since 1998. When it became necessary to have a ground floor unit (no stairs), we bought C8. He passed away here in Kona in 2015 but I will continue to spend some time here. Kona and the Big Island grow on you and it rejuvenates the spirit to return. I am an Oregon native and live near Portland.

Joanne Broadhurst purchased this condo in 2008

Why Joanne Broadhurst chose Kona Coast

The first time we rented a place here at Kona Isle, we just felt comfortable and that it was home. We had no idea we would return to Oregon owning a spot of paradise here. And we have never regretted it. The original condo is currently on the real estate market but there are no plans to sell C8.

What makes this condo unique

We have made life-long friends from throughout the United States and Canada. Many of the same people, whether owners or renters, return year after year. It is a very special friendly condo complex with only 74 one-bedroom units.

Lovely condo in lovely complex within walking distance of downtown.

  • 5 of 5

JoAnne has a very nice condo. The view from the patio is of the ocean and the pool and well kept lawns and palm trees You have everything you need. Kona Isle which is the complex is very well run. Brian is a great manager and took care of anything we might need. The bed is comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed. She has all the toys that you might want for snorkeling and beach. The condo definitely gets 5 stars. The weather got unusually hot while we were there and she has fans in all the rooms. We come from Washington state so the heat was a bit much for us but we were OK with the fans. It cooled off nicely at night. Thank you for a lovely home to base out of.

This really is a tropical paradise and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

There was nothing more that we could have asked for in finding a nicer owner to work with or a more perfect location. The condos are just perfect. Joanne's place has everything one could want and more. The pantry was even stocked with staples unlike other places we have stayed in the Islands which was a nice treat and a huge money saver when grocery shopping. The beach area is amazing, our friends saw spinner dolphins and in the morning you can see the yellow Angel Fish in the surf. This location is so great, everything downtown Kona is just about 3 miles max. We just loved it. Thanks so much ! You can not beat the price! Aloha and thank you for allowing the late checkout. That was so sweet..Kari and Keith

Very comfortable condo next to the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We appreciated the central location: breakfast cafe, market and poke place within walking distance. Barbecue and sun terrace right at the ocean invited us every evening at sunset. The condo is fully equiped with everything necessary and much more. We had an amazing time there!

Truly a Tropical Paradise

  • 4 of 5

The Kona Isle accommodation was perfect for our needs. It was centrally located close to highway access and shopping but far enough away from Kailua to have quiet and privacy. The grounds were beautiful and right on the ocean. Although there was not direct access to the water there was a lounge and barbecue area that was directly over-looking the water. The condo was comfortable and the kitchen well-stocked. The whole complex was very quiet and peaceful. The only issue was there was no air conditioning and it was quite hot in the bedroom despite using two fans. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Kona Isle property.

Car: recommended

Alii Drive is the only through road following the ocean from Kailua Village to Keauhou 5 miles south. It connects to all other major roads. Grocery stores at both ends. Most all shopping and dining needs are contained here. Historical sites in the Village include the beautiful Hulihe'e Palace, one of 3 royal palaces in Hawaii and the Mokuaikaua Church which is the oldest Christian church in Hawaii. The Laoloa beach (known as Disappearing Sands or White Sands) is a few minutes south. The best snorkeling around is a mile further at Kahalu'u beach park. Turtles (honu) are spotted regularly. I recommend the "Hawaii Revealed" visitor guide (or known as the Blue Bible.) Whether you can get to all the sites, it is enjoyable reading. Familiar stores such as Costco, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, Safeway and Macy's are close by. Besides all the attractions nearby, the resort areas and wonderful beaches are 30 miles north on Hwy 19. . Hilo is an hour and half away on the newly improved Saddle Road. The Big Island has 7 different climate regions. Going north find Hawi and Kapa'au, Waimea, South of Kona is the Hawaii Volcano National Park. There are so many options from sand and waves, jungle, desert, ranch land, lava fields, Place of Refuge, or the volcano to chose from or the other option of just relaxing on a lounge in the sun with a good book and a dip in the pool.
