About this listing
We are a nicely appointed condo in the heart of Old Kona Town. We are across from the Hulie'e Palace and only a couple of hundred feet from the ocean. There are restaurants, galleries, Kona coffee houses and exotic shopping right out our doors.
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 onto the posted price.
WE ARE NON-SMOKING!
We have a beautiful salt-water pool and fabulous rooftop lanais where our guests can have a barbeque and get a sun tan. Our main downtown area in Kona is right out our doors.
Interaction with Guests
I am always available to give advise about the island and share some special places with guests. There are so many things to do here, an adventure at every turn.
I just love living in downtown Kona. We are on the quiet end of the "strip" here along the oceanfront at Kailua Bay. It is quiet in our neighborhood soon after dark. Just a few blocks down along the waterfront are our nightclubs and late-night restaurants with daily live music. It really is a special place, very calm with many shopping, dining and night club options.
We have a daily bus that goes up and down Alii Drive for many miles. Taxi is always available and there is a very good bus that goes all the way from Kona to Hilo for a very small price.
Other Things to Note
Only a city block from beautiful Kona Pier, the starting point for our triathlons and the world famous Ironman Triathlon Competition. Snorkeling in this bay is world-class. We require a 9 day booking for the Ironman week.
We are in a very nice condo buildking and we abide by the condo association's rules. That is, mostly, considerate of others and quite from 8 am to 9 pm. Respect the furnishings and leave the space in fine condition. NO SMOKING!
We do not do dishes. There is a $50 charge for dirty dishes left behind. We will empty the dishwasher for you though.
Great Condo, and so convenient to everything in Kona. Very well appointed and comfortable. Enjoyed our stay. Parking availability appreciated.
Prime location, comfortable apartment with plenty of amenities. Appreciated the beach chairs, coffee grinder, and blender especially!!
Location is so perfect! Everything is near by which is so convenient:) We stayed for 4th of July & got front row views of the fireworks . Condo is well equipped with everything and parking is underground so there's no hassle. Will defitinly recommend to others. Thanks Edward
Edward's place was wonderful! The best part was walking through the door into a nice cool air conditioned condo after being in the Kona heat. The directions that Edward left for check-in were on point and very helpful, and he was available for a call when we checked-in if we had any questions. The condo looks exactly like it does in the pictures, and the experience was great! The spot is centrally located in the heart of restaurants and the marketplace, and is only a few minutes walk from the coast. I would recommend getting a rental car in Kona if you plan on staying for more than two nights. We ended up making it without a car because we went on a one day tour which picked up right across the street from the condo, and we got our meals from the restaurants nearby. There is taxi service from the airport, and we just kept the taxi guy's card if we needed to get around anywhere. Overall it was a wonderful experience at Edward's Condo in downtown Kona, and we would recommend it to everyone else!
We had a wonderful time in Kailua-Kona at Edward's condo. It was everything we needed in a place to stay and more. We will be back!
My husband Tom and I thoroughly enjoyed Edwards condo. He had everything a person could possibly need, of which we were grateful. The location is perfect! We were in the heart of town but was a block from the main road so incredibly peaceful. I would highly recommend Edwards kona king condo!
Edwards place is very strategically located. My family and I had a great time in Kona. The condo is clean and complete with supplies from coffee to shampoo. Plus parking was free. Checking-in and checking out was simple and easy. I also like the short cut to Alii Drive. Everything there is perfect. I will definitely stay again in Edwards Condo if i go back to Kona.
