Property description

Kona Isle is on the makai (ocean) side of Alii Drive, 2 ½ miles south of Kailua-Kona. The condo has both a view of the ocean and swimming pool and a view of the mountain from the lanai. The grounds are beautifully cared for with lots of open space.

This ground floor corner (C8) condo is fully furnished with all amenities for your enjoyment. Ceiling fans and screened doors and windows maintain a comfortable temperature with security and privacy. Easily accessible walk-in shower. This is a Non-Smoking unit as well as the property is non-smoking. Sleeping arrangements include a queen-size bed in the bedroom and a hide-a-bed sofa in the living room. Our condo association house rules require a minimum 5-night rental and no more than 4 persons.

Wireless Internet Access is available in the unit.

Kona Isle is a taste of the real aloha of Hawaii. After a day of sightseeing and beaches, enjoy the relaxation of our barbecue area with picnic tables near the shore, or reclining on lounges under the palm trees on the white sand beach, where you can watch the sunsets and whales in the winter. Our pool is solar heated so it is comfortable all year. There is a salt-water pool adjacent to the property that is great fun when the waves are pounding in.

Kailua Town is 2 ½ miles north and Keauhou is 5 miles to the south; both with shopping, restaurants, music, snorkeling, and grocery stores.

We hope to make your visit to the Big Island and Kailua-Kona a wonderful experience.

Joanne and Jack

Car: Recommended

THe condo is conveniently located on Alii Drive which runs along the ocean from Kailua town to the Keauhou area. It is an easy walk into town and a fairly regular shuttle bus system. This area of the Big Island still has a small town feel with many of the major retailers on the outskirts of town such as Target, KMart, WalMart, Costco, and Safeway, Lots of restuarants and shopping within 2-5 miles each direction. Georgous beaches such as Kua Bay, Hapuna, Mauna Kea, to the north beyond the airport. Two major historic sites or museums. Hulihe'e Palace, one of 3 remaining royal palaces, located downtown Kauila across from the oldest church in Hawaii. South of Kona is the Pu'uhonua o Honaunau (Place of Refuge) historic site. Just a few of the wonderful spots to visit.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Hawaii has always been a special place for both Jack and me until he passed away in Janaury 2015.. He started coming in the 1970's. When we met in the late 1980's, Kona was the first place we spent a vacation and we have been coming back every year since then. The rest of the year is spent in Oregon in a small town outside of Portland. We are both Oregonians. I'm a native and Jack was a transplant from Montana. My pastime is Oregon history and Jack liked to garden and grows great vegetables.

Why the Owner Chose Kona Isle:
Kona Isle became our second home almost accidentally. We were vacationing in Kona in the spring and were looking for a place for our next visit. After spending a few weeks here we knew this was where we wanted to be. And we have never regretted our decision. It is really a special place for beauty, relaxation, friendliness and close to all the attractions, shopping and restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Sometimes the major decision of the day, after breakfast on the lanai, is whether to go down to the beach and sit under a tree in a lounge chair and read, swim a bit, or do some sightseeing. All we know is that soon it is time for dinner and we haven't done all we planned on doing. Life goes slower in Kona. Or it can go as fast as you want. Hawaii Excise and Transit Tax No. W14684625-01
