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.
I can't imagine a better location for a holiday in Kona! The apartment is in walking distance of everything and very quiet & peaceful! I look forward to coming back again!
The condo is very nice and the kitchen comes fully stocked. I didn't receive the email of instructions but when I let Edward know he promptly resent them to me. Also when issues arose Edward quickly resolved them.
The instructions that Edward gave us were easy to follow to find the condo. The apartment was beautiful and with all the cookware that we needed to. The included parking was pretty helpful. We recommend this condo for everyone that wants to stay in big island. We will be back for sure.
Edward's condo is perfectly placed in downtown Kailua-Kona, a great jumping off point for excursions all across the Big Island. The place couldn't be more comfortable or peaceful. His instructions were clear and informative, so you have nothing to worry about. Just relax and have fun.
Well let me start with the condo, its amazing right on the downtown and very close to beach and amazing location. We had a great time.
Condo is well organized have every thing that we need. I would recommend this place to everyone very elegant and affordable.
Thanks Edward for all the guidance and help.
Edwards place was great. First of all, the location could not be better, right in the center (and by an ice cream place). Free underground parking was a big plus. The apartment is very clean and spacious. Everything we needed was there. Edward was very flexible and responsive. The apartment is quiet and the mattress and pillows very comfortable.
Great location, easy walking to Alii drive and all the attractions there! Edward has done a good job providing the little necessities for guests. The free underground parking was a great feature, that we really appreciated! The in unit washing machine was an added bonus, we hadn't planned on using it, but it was nice to take home some clean clothes.
