One mile south of Kailua-Kona on Alii Drive, Alii Villas is a beautiful oceanfront complex with tropical landscaping, a large freshwater pool, and a patio area perfect for barbecuing or sunbathing. Black-and-white spinner dolphins and green sea turtles are frequent visitors to the bay just north of the complex, and bright reef fish school in the little coves and beaches nearby.
A short, pretty drive south leads to the best surfing, snorkeling, and diving areas in the Hawaiian islands; a trip north through 19th century lava flows takes you to dozens of peaceful white-sand beaches lined with palm and kiawe trees. Inland—a longer drive, but well worth the trip—is Kilauea, the Big Island’s active volcano, and the weird extraterrestrial landscape of Volcanoes National Park. To see the whole beautiful island and travel easily from one great beach to another, we recommend you rent a car at the airport.

We had a pleasant stay of one night, the place was clean, the neighborhood quiet and everything as expected. No problems during arrival.
Perfectly located an easy walk from all the attractions of Kailua Kona, the condo works perfectly as a "base of operations" and has all the facilities you might need.
The only (very minor) criticism would be that the place could to with a little TLC … as would, I'm sure, any property that is well-used by holidaymakers.
In summary, if you're looking for convenience and good location to explore the Kona side of Big Island but don't need anything fancy this is perfect.
Nice stay at alii villas at Kona.
Great apartement, not far from Kona center.
We were not Lucky with the weather, but great area. Apartement really well equiped!
The condo was very convenient for walking into town. We sat on the lanai for coffee and dinner; so pretty and relaxing. The condo was clean and pleasant. There are snorkels, boogie boards, water shoes and beach towels for use, also some much needed sun screen and after-sun care.
The only reason we didn't give a 5 star rating is because the bed really needs replacing. It was very noisy, old and uncomfortable.
Myself and 3 others stayed here a week. We had a lovely stay at this condo. It was as described and met our expectations. We were able to walk to many attractions in town as well as drive to beaches, historical sites and hikes in the area. A nice bonus was a closet with lots of beach items - snorkels, boogie boards, etc. that was pretty awesome. The pool in the middle of the complex is very nice and has a library of books and magazines to borrow. Eric was very helpful and prompt responding to emails and calls. The complex is a bit noisy but no more than one might expect as there are a lot of buildings close together and most people kept their windows open. We very much enjoyed our stay and found this to be a very good value.
Perfect and lovely place. Beautiful apartment with all possible facilities. Hosts left us a perfect guide book which helped a lot when traveling around island.
If we return (and we know it will happen soon) we would definitely come back to this place. Big A+
