The space

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.

Guest access

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.

The neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Clean, convenient, central without being noisy. Great for us and our five year old. We appreciated being within walking distance of so many things. Having a parking space was a big plus, and Edward was easy to reach and communicate with. No complaints, would happily stay here again!

Edward's place was easy to find and a great hub for our kona adventures. The condo was well maintained, clean and well stocked. We could walk around downtown kona from the condo but the beaches in walking distance were not swimming friendly.

Response from Edward:
Actually there is a fabulous swimming beach just two blocks away at the pier. This is where the Ironman swimming competition starts. It's also a world-class snorkeling site. I'm sorry this guest missed this.

Great location. Close to downtown Kona and all the restaurants and shopping! We slept 4 and used the pull out couch, which isn't the most comfortable, but it worked!! All in all, great place!!

Excellent condo with everything you need. Secure parking. Brilliant location - directly across from the pier and ocean. Edward, even though remote during my visit, was very helpful and always available to answer questions and give tips. Had an amazing time at Kona and seeing the whole of the Big Island using Edward's condo as my base - would stay here again.

The location of Edward's condo is perfect. It is within walking distance to a ton of restaurants, shops, and even a couple beaches that the kids really loved. The condo itself was great and had everything our little family needed; including a great pool. Edward himself was super friendly and accommodating. Overall a great place to stay!

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.
