Perfect location! Lush tropical grounds!. Lovely, clean and comfy upgraded seaside studio. A fabulous setting with Olde Hawaii plantation-style architecture and Tiki torches creates a romantic ambiance straight out of a classic Hawaiian adventure novel.

"Me and my husband found this place with Tripadvisor, so thank you. The apartment is really nice, new, well designed, with a nice lanai on the pool. The place is very quite so you'll have wonderful night of sleeping (but jet lag...). In the apartments you'll find everything you need to make you're vacation a great one. They give you beach suppliers, Tupperware and more else. It's really in the centre of Kona, so you don't have to drive to have breakfast or dinner, everything is really really close, just five minute walk or even less! If I've ever come back to BI I'll check for the availability of this place first!"

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Our popular ocean-side pool view condo #216 on the second floor at the Kona Islander Condominiums with Old Hawaiian Plantation-style lobby and grand lanai is in the perfect location right in town, central to everything, walk everywhere! We offer beautiful, clean and comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. This is a privately owned, tastefully furnished, upgraded studio, 400 sq. ft, 37 sq. m., pool view beach condo plus lanai. If you are looking for an isolated, out-of-town, high end condo with a separate bedroom, this is not for you. If you are looking for a cozy, upgraded vacation rental studio right downtown, this is for you. Located on Ali'i Drive beach road right in the historic village of Kailua in Kona, you can walk everywhere instead of having to drive or take a cab - especially convenient after going out on the town. You really can't get a better and quieter studio beach condo location in the village than this one.
ALOHA, EXPERIENCE THE AMBIANCE OF OLD HAWAII. Welcome to our quiet beach condo set amid lush grounds abounded with floral gardens, banana, papaya, royal palms, coconut palms and walking palms. Bask in the Hawaiian sunshine at our beautiful pool and Jacuzzi hot tub spa. A few steps along our meandering hibiscus-lined paths lead you from our studio condo right to your own white sand sunning beach just across the narrow beach road. Relax and read a book or marvel at the daring surfers catching the curling waves just off the beach for Hawaii is the birthplace of surfing. Have a romantic dinner on your own private second floor condo lanai overlooking the tiki torch-lit pool, coconut palms and beautiful flowering plumeria trees. Relax and unwind in this peaceful setting. It's a truly friendly place to stay!
YOUR COMFORTABLE CONDO AND QUIET SETTING ARE YOUR PERSONAL RETREAT YET YOU HAVE ALL THE FUN OF DOWNTOWN WAITING FOR YOU JUST OUTSIDE OUR GARDEN GATE ON ALI'I DRIVE. In the morning, breakfast on your lanai in the dappled sunshine filtering through the palm fronds and watch the colorful tropical birds or perhaps walk our meandering paths that lead to the many cafes for breakfast just down the road. Then go exploring! Soak up the sun and the exotic Hawaiian atmosphere as you stroll down Ali'i Drive, the beach road that winds its way along the interesting shops of the historic village of Kailua in Kona. Along the way, enjoy a cup of world famous Kona coffee which is grown right on the slope above Kailua-Kona. You will discover the Kona Farmer's Market less than a block away for fresh fruit and vegetables, exotic flowers includingl Hawaiian leis and Hawaiian souvenirs and gifts. There is excellent shopping, restaurants, bars, nightlife and a myriad of tourist activities just a short stroll on either side of the resort. For example, dine at Bubba Gumps seafood, Lava Java, Polynesian, Thai and many other international food restaurants. Walk to McDonald's, pizza parlors and other chain restaurants. Our very affordable condo is central to all the best beaches - sunning, swimming, surfing, snorkeling and diving. We are within easy walking distance of the famous King Kamehameha Hulihe'e Palace. Kailua-Kona was the original seat of government for the Kingdom of Hawaii after Chief Kamehameha of Kona consolidated his rule over most of the Hawaiian Islands and became the king. The famous Ironman Triathlon World Championship start and finish is nearby at the world-famous, Kailua-Kona pier. You will notice that we are on the drier side of the Big Island of Hawaii on the sunny Kona coast. Perhaps plan a day trip farther afield to view an active lava-spewing volcano on the other side of the island. Later, maybe on to Hilo where it tends to rain a little more to see Rainbow Falls. You can also drive up to the top of Mauna Kea where a cluster of international celestial observatories are so high up that they are at the year-round snow elevation at the summit. If you are a tennis afficienado, there is a free public tennis court and basketball court in the park one block from our condo. Want to learn how to surf and be safe in the surf? Hawaii Lifeguard Surf Instructors building is but blocks away along the beach road, Ali'i Drive. If golf is your passion, there are at least 10 golf courses within a 20 mile radius - ranging from Championship 18 hole courses to easier 9 hole courses. There are many historical churches within a short stroll, all very interesting. Kona is the start point of expeditions to the volcano by helicopter, by car, by inter-city bus, by tour bus, by boat. Then there is the Parker Ranch, the celestial observatories, the historic Hawaiian cultural sites, the nearby university, the Natural Energy labs NELHA, the luaus, the surfing, the....
'Popular Kona Islander Condominiums is one of the exclusive Big Island settings of the romantic Hawaiian adventure novel 'Thundersea' by internationally acclaimed author Ernie Palamarek, whose novels also include the Secret Temple of Kintamani, Along Cama a Swagman, Amazonia and Hatari. His intriguing story, Thundersea, is based upon the history, myths, legends, first-hand experiences and tales of the Hawaiian people hidden within the veils of time and brought forward explosively into present day Hawaii.' Quoted with permission. The famous writer Mark Twain (novels 'Tom Sawyer'; 'Huckleberry Finn') said in the 1800's, 'Kailua, Kona is the Sundayest town I've ever been in! It's the greatest place to relax!' And, you know what? It still is! You'll love it here at our comfortable condo and want to come back time and time again!
Stay in the fabulous historic village of Kailua in Kona at the best-located condo on sunny Kona coast, grab your sunglasses, flip flops & sun lotion and get that beach book to read. Your place in the Hawaiian sun is here!
