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 heart of the old 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 and secured 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 in the middle of our restaurant and shopping area.
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 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 building and we abide by the condo association's rules. That is, mostly, considerate of others and quite from 8 pm to 8 am.. 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.

I am a professional landscape designer and nurseryman. I have a beautiful condo in wonderful downtown Kona. I know the island well, the special beaches and activities. I am a diver and avid swimmer and swim from the pier in Kona just steps away from the condo on a regular basis observing the amazing reef just across from the condo.
I am available to my guests 24/7 and enjoy helping them plan their experience here on the island. I enjoy traveling all over the world.
My other home in the mountains of Northern New Mexico near Angel Fire and I love the mountains.
I take my responsibility of hosting very seriously and know that your experience here is an important one. I believe that every decision we make is an important one.
