Spectacular Oceanfront 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Very Large Lanai in Quiet Complex
Aloha, this is Janet and Fred. We have been remodeling, renovating and fixing up properties for many years. Our background is in home construction and property inspections. We enjoy taking on these projects and when we are through, we love seeing the results of our long hours of work. We have been coming to Kona for about 25 years and bought our other unit at B34 Kona Isle in 2000 (VRBO#229525) and refurbished it. We consistently receive 5 star reviews on that property. In 2016 we bought this unit at Alii Villas and spent several months updating and remodeling it. We think you'll like the mixture of modern, mid-century and retro furnishings and decor and the new appliances and flooring. Come check it out. Janet is a cancer survivor of almost 10 years so mention you are a cancer survivor and we will give you a discount on your stay.
Janet purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Janet chose Kailua Kona
The ocean view is the first thing that caught our attention when we viewed the property and then the large lanai to enjoy the view on was the next thing we fell in love with. Plus, Alii Villas is well maintained, beautifully landscaped and has a large heated pool and BBQ area. It is just a lovely complex with friendly staff, guests and owners. Also, no street noise from Alii Dr. as we are at the far end of the complex and right on the water.
What makes this Condo unique
We love that we are just the second owners of this beautiful place. The original owners bought it when it was new and lived happily here for about 40 years. Although they had done some remodeling over the years the condo was in need of lots of updates so we came in and put our own stamp on it, but kept some of the original construction and flavor. We asked the previous owners to leave the Raquino wall sculpture from the 1970's because it just needed to stay with the condo! A unique and neat feature of the complex is that residents and guests meet at sunset down at the shore seating area to talk and mingle and toast another beautiful day in Kona!

Our stay at the Ali'i Villas was so nice-perfect location for watching the Ironman Triathlon. Janet was so helpful and patient with me, especially when I misplaced the information on entering the condo on our first night (I work her up at 2:00 AM mainland time...!) - she could not have been nicer. The place itself is comfortable and well-equipped, the lanai is wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing your condo with Karen and me.
Thank you Janine for your lovely review. The condo is a great spot to watch the Ironman events and I am glad you could be there for the experience.
I do try to be nice and accommodating to all my guests and am glad you found me to be that.
Please come back again.
Mahalo and Aloha.
Great stay. Nicely layed out. Beautiful view.
This property is exactly as described. The view is beautiful and the sound of the waves very relaxing. It was well supplied. We were able to cook a number of nice meals there. It is reasonable distance from town and beaches. Janet was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Highly recommend.
Hi, Lisa. Thank you so much for the 5 star review. I am glad you found the condo as described and enjoyed the location, view and kitchen.
I do try to be fast to respond and accommodating for any needs a guest might have.
You are welcome to come back anytime and it was so sweet of you to leave me a bottle of maple syrup from your home area to enjoy with some Hawaiian macnut pancakes.
Wonderful guests like you and your family make renting our little slice of paradise a joy.
Mahalo and Aloha,
Well located within minutes walk to Kona Town. Being oceanfront was so wonderful!
We had a very comfortable stay and found your condo clean, well equipped and well maintained. There were a couple of nights that it was too warm but the fans helped. We loved viewing the fireworks over Kona from the lanai. The swimming pool and library are well cared for and a pleasant spot to relax. We recommend your condo!
Mahalo for such a nice review. Yes, the view is great I am glad you enjoyed the fireworks display from the lanai. We love the north and west facing view of Kona town during the day and night.
We do try to keep the condo well stocked so you don't have to spend your precious vacation time shopping for supplies and a clean condo is very important to me.
It was great place to stay for our week on the Big Island!
The place was great and had everything we needed for our week vacation on the Island. The best part was the view from the deck. While actually at the condo and not sleeping, we were found mostly on the deck enjoying the great view and the sounds of waves crashing. I would definitely choose to stay here again.
Thank you Chris for such a nice review. Glad you found everything you needed for a great stay. Yes, the lanai is a wonderful place to watch the ocean, hear the waves and just relax. That is one of the reasons you take a vacation is to relax. Happy to hear you would stay here again.
Mahalo and Aloha,
I loved the condo, fantastic view, lovely deck, good location. The condo was in excellent condition, stocked well and directions and suggestions of things to do by the owner Janet were excellent. I would definitely stay there again!
Thank you Nancy for the 5 star review. I am glad you found the information useful that I send to guests.
The condo is really lovely and the views are great. Thank you for acknowledging that.
Come visit again.
Mahalo and Aloha
Very clean and comfortable 2 bedroom unit with good exposure. Nicely appointed and well stocked. Janet was quick to reply to all our questions. We enjoyed the BBQ, cooler, beach chairs and binoculars. We spotted dolphins off the balcony every day. The view was nice but I'm not sure where the profile picture was taken from. We discovered a car washing station on site which was perfect to rinse off our diving gear. Parking right at the door was appreciated as was the non-smoking policy. I would happily stay here again.
Thanks Suzi for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you found me responsive and the condo clean and comfortable.
I appreciate you mentioning the car wash area. I hadn't thought about putting that in my description, but I will now. It is a great spot to wash gear and is near the exit of the complex.
I want to assure you and future guests that all the pictures of the view are from the lanai with my I-phone 5 so no doctored or fake pictures. I believe in showing accurate and real photos on my listings.
All my best to you.
Mahalo and Aloha,
World class snorkeling and deep sea fishing. A must see is the Volcano National Park. Historical heiaus (temples) and of course Kona coffee farms. Swim with dolphins and manta rays. Tour coffee farms and chocolate farm. I'll provide my fun guides to Kona with every reservation--these include our favorite restaurants, beaches and shopping opportunities.
