This beautiful condo was just fully and expertly remodeled and furnished. It is new inside with sophisticated Polynesian accents. We are in the heart of downtown Kona on the island of Hawaii or "The Big Island". We overlook the oldest church in Hawaii, Mokuaikaua Church, and the Hulihee Royal Palace in downtown Kona. We are steps away from the pier, restaurants and special activities. This is the old heart of the village of Kona, literally in the back yard of the Hulihee Palace.
We have one bedroom one bath with large lanai and a new kitchen, fully stocked with all the necessary dishes.
Although we are in the core and center of the town, we are quiet because of the church as our closest neighbor. We are on the quiet side of our building orientated toward the church grounds. We have covered parking in a garage and elevators from the parking area. Cable, high-speed internet and a new washer/dryer is included. This is truly a wonderful property unique because of its setting.
Our building includes a wonderful pool and barbecue decks which overlook the busy Ali'i Drive and the Pacific Ocean. Step out of the parking garage and you are right where all the downtown action is.
Prices include Hawaii tax of 13.42%! This is important when comparing prices because many people add it in later.
WE ARE NON SMOKING!
This is a beautiful condo. Sitting on the lanai in the early morning and early evening I could listen to the birds forever. There was everything I needed for cooking as well as beach gear. Edward prepared us with much information of the Island. I could have stayed forever.
It is next to the first church built in Hawaii. Also very close to the main strip but not loud like you would think. I will be back. Four days is not near enough to see this wonderful island. Mahalo Edward.
The condo is very comfortable and clean as well as attractive and well furnished. Location is perfect: central to downtown Kona, yet quiet. Sleeping on the lanai was great. Edward was a good host, promptly answering questions and meeting needs.
The Big Island is really big and rent a Condo at the center of the island is good idea if you want to explore island and do not have a plan only for one special location.
We have driven to Condo from Kona Airport no more than 15 min.
Check-in will easy if you carefully read all information that Edward provide to you.
Undeground parking was convinient and usefull via basement you can easily reach ocean-front restaurants (Lava Java was the best for the breakfasts and Bubba Gump for the dinner) and shops.
Condo was fully equiped as in description.
Use lanai for the breakfasts if you don't want to go to the caffe.
20-30 min by the car and you are at the greatest north beaches of the Big Island.
2 hours by the car and you are at the Volcano Park where you can take any trails, view glow of the volcano and even to see the lava flow if you will lucky.
1,5 hours and you are at Mauna Kea summit - incredible views!
Especially i want to say thank you for decoration of the condo - it was great!
Nice, clean place, well stocked kitchen. As advertised! Communication with Edward was easy and straightforward. Check in via a keybox was super easy.
This condo was lovely! Perfect location close to everything. Was very accommodating to all needs! Thank u!
Edward accommodated us from Dec 26 through Dec 29 and the condo and location were absolutely perfect. Easy to get to, great parking options, well equipped with every last detail. He was also attentive to additional needs and a true host. We would love to use the condo again, should we make it back to Kona sometime soon.
The place was a true paradise. I stayed there for 7 days with my mom for Christmas vacation. The first words out of my mom's mouth was "the pictures do not do this place justice" it was love at first sight. Mind you this was her first experience with AirBNB, I had to practically drag her there. I don't think we will be staying in hotels any longer.
Edward's place is perfectly located. Central to everything "downtown". It was really easy to get groceries, supplies that we did not think of bringing, and there are also plenty of restaurants within blocks. The decor is adorable and the place provides all the necessary amenities. I did not get to check out the pool or sunning deck, since the weather was perfect so we always went to the beach, but drove by the pool side and it looked great.
The bed is phenomenal, possibly more comfortable than what I have at home. I also slept in the couch in the living room once, and even napped in the couch in the veranda. All were comfortable as well.
All in all couldn't have asked for more. It was the perfect accommodation to an awesome vacation.
we had a great time at the condo!
kona is a wonderful place and is not overloaded with tourist and hotel blocks.
the condo is in a quiet corner of the main street and is very well equipped, so you find EVERYTHING you need for cooking and many other useful things. sometimes you can hear the people singing in the church, which you can see from the balcony. this is great.
the condo is big, very clean and has a huge balcony you can chill after the sunset. the condo is arranged very aesthetic with much love for details.
there are many awesome beaches and snorkeling spots just 10 minutes
away by car. ist is the perfect place to explore the west of the island.
edward was the BEST host we ever had! He gave us many Informations about the beaches and dining locations in the near!
Lovely well equipped condo and perfectly located. Great lanai.
Super ausgestattetes Apartment, zentral gelegen, perfekt zum Erholen auf und Erkunden von Big Island geeignet. Edward hat alles gut vorbereitet und der Informationsaustausch hätte nicht besser sein können. Ich würde auf jeden Fall wieder hier übernachten und kann es nur weiterempfehlen.
