Steps to Beach Kailua-Kona Condo

Other - Entire home/apt · Alii Dr, Kailua-Kona, HI 96740, United States

The Space

This luxury condo is located in Alii Cove, one of Kona's newest complexes. All new stainless steel appliances and soothing furnishings add to the relaxed and calming decor. There is a large flat screen TV, wifi DVD player and wifi router.

The private, gated complex includes a resort style pool, jacuzzi, barbecue area and workout room. The unit has two assigned parking spaces, one covered and one uncovered. Guest parking is also available.

It is conveniently located, across from Honl's beach, a 15-20 minute drive from the airport, a short 5-10 minute walk to Kona village, restaurants and the farmer's market. A 10 minute drive in either direction takes you to golf courses, tennis or shopping.

This well appointed 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo has a California King bed in the master bedroom, two twin beds in the second bedroom and a comfortable pull-out sofabed that sleeps two in the living room. The condo has a flat screen TV, cable, wireless internet, new stainless steel appliances and washer and dryer. The quiet lanai has seating for 6 and is planted with tropical palms including banana palms. Brand new stainless dishwasher is installed (as all new appliances).

Again, the location of this complex can't be beat - across the street from a sandy beach and on the south edge of downtown Kailua-Kona on Alii Drive. The unit is in building C, a great location within the complex - close to everything (pool, beach etc), but far enough away from the main street, so very quite. For a map of the complex search Alii Cove online.

The best snorkling spot is Captain Cook - it's a bit of a hike in though. You're walking distance into town - Bubba Gump's in right on the water. Lava Java is nice for breakfast. The best and most inexpensive 100% pure Kona coffee is in the little trailer on the left near Java on the Rocks (a wifi cafe on the sand). The Farmer's Market is a little further down Alii Drive, again walking distance, and is open a few days a week - great for fresh produce of all kinds! There is also a Farmer's Market on Friday mornings at the Keahoe Shopping Center, and on Wednesdays in between Keahoe and Kailua-Kona.

The volcano viewing is worth the trip. Take a sweatshirt in case it's chilly or rainy there - it was for us the last time we went and we weren't prepard for it. There is a seahorse farm not far from the airport. You need to call or check online to make sure when they're open for tours as it's only 2 or 3 days a week. At the end of the tour you get to hold a seahorse! There is a special Manta Ray dive at night that is spectular. A submarine ride and the water parachute ride is available right on Alii Drive beach. Golfing is available at Keahoe which is only 10 minutes to drive.

The green sand beach is a few hours drive away but needs a 4 wheel drive or a day's hike to reach once you're off road. It's at the Southern Most point in the US!~ Along the way, there's a GREAT restaurant called Hanna Hoi that makes great homemade bread and pies! I try to stop there every time I'm in the area as in going to the Volcano, the Green Sand Beach, or Hilo. Turtles love to rest on the Black Sand Beach! It truly is black and isn't too far away from Kona.

Hilo takes almost half days drive but worth the trip. Take bug spray though because it's truly like a jungle in places there. There's a railroad museum near Hilo. The public gardens are beautiful!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • An absolutely fabulous place to stay just over a mile from Kailua-Kona pier, half a mile from Island Lava Java(lovely Kona coffee and muffins) and about 25 minutes drive from the airport.
    Rosabeth's place is a home from home and a lovely place to relax after a day on the beach or travelling the island.
    Everything you could need, except a kettle for us British tea drinkers, and spotlessly clean.
    I will definately be coming again.
    Thank you Rosabeth for the use of your wonderful home.

    Response from Rosabeth:

    I wish you'd let me know you needed a kettle when you where there Mat. I have responded to your comment by purchasing a tea kettle which I will bring on my next visit. So glad you had such a lovely time at our condo!

  • Rosabeth is a great communicator and a caring, warm host. The condo is very comfortable with a fabulous lanai. The kitchen is freshly updated with everything you need. The complex is kept in immaculate condition, the highlight being a really nice pool area. I recommend this home highly!

  • We loved Rosabeth's condo! It was like being at home. It was very clean and beautifully furnished. We stayed there with our 2 year old son and it was nice to have a full kitchen and space for him to play. There is a beautiful pool in the complex that's just perfect for relaxing. There is a beach across the street, but we found one just a few miles south of the complex that was perfect for us. It had more sand for our son to enjoy. There is a scooter rental place nearby. It's a great way to get around to all the shops and restaurants. Rosabeth suggested that we try Sam Choy's and it was delicious. She was very helpful and stayed in contact during our stay. She made sure we had everything we needed. We kept in touch using email and texting. If you choose her condo, I don't think you will have any complaints with Rosabeth as your host.

    You are welcome back any time!

My husband and I have been world travels for over 30 years. When we first came to the big island, we fell in love with it! There are so many things to see and do. Our condo is part of a luxury property and is wonderfully located. It is right across from the beach and a short walking distance to town. The premises has a picturesque pool, jacuzzi, workout room and barbeque area! We hope you enjoy our relaxing, peaceful place as much as we do!
