LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Our popular oceanside 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! This is a furnished, privately owned 400 sq. ft, 37 sq. m., pool view beach condo plus lanai, not a hotel room. Situated on Ali'i Drive beach road right in the historic town of Kailua-Kona, you can walk everywhere instead of having to drive or take a cab - especially convenient after going out on the town.
ALOHA, EXPERIENCE THE AMBIENCE OF OLD HAWAII. Welcome to our quiet beach condo set amidst 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 hibiscus-lined path 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 to Lulu's famous $5 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-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 and authentic 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, the world's only non-explosive flowing 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 are free public tennis courts and basketball courts 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. Oh yes! There is also that active volcano. 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 fabulous Kailua-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!

Our building, one of seven, is unique in that it backs onto a quiet area of lawn and banana trees. Our 440 sf (40m) condo is the quietest and most private as it doesn't back onto resort parking lots nor is it fronting on any public streets such as Ali'i Drive which has 24-hour car and pedestrian traffic. Our condo is just far enough from the beach so that any airborne sea spray and fine mist doesn't affect us. Relaxing on your lanai in the evening, taking in the old Hawaiian plantation setting, the tiki torches along the paths and the illuminated pool, you would think that this eye candy was a magical movie set. We chose our historic plantation-style condo for its unique beach location right in the heart of historic Kailua-Kona while still affording us a tranquil retreat in this beautiful tropical setting....moreless

Great condo, great location!
Great condo, great location!
I spent three weeks in the condo. There was everything I needed to live and work. I hooked the TV up to my laptop to make a giant monitor for it. The wifi was a bit spotty, but I understand it has been updated since then. The location is great - only a few minutes from everything in Kona including the market and the library. By the way you can get a three month library card for $10 at the library. It is good anywhere in the state of Hawaii.

Owner response: Thanks for selecting condo #216 for your 2012 stay. The WiFi signal from the lobby is weak due to usage by other guests in the lobby. So Sharon and I installed our own private in-condo high-speed internet router with coverage extending out to the pool, hot tub and BBQ areas. This private signal allows Skype and Viber to work great too! With the library just around the corner, it is a great place for readers to browse and researchers to peruse Hawaiian artifacts and documents. Aloha! Ernie, Sharon and Sandra

I recently stayed for a week in this condo, which is a privately owned condo and I loved it. I found their place to be clean and comfortable with nice furnishings, well equipped kitchenette, very comfy bed, and a fantastic pool view lit up with tiki torches at night. Their condo is in the perfect location in Kailua Kona with lots to do and within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and beaches. The pool was clean and inviting and I would return to this condo in the Kona Islander without hesitation and recommend it to family and friends...

My husband & I stayed for a week and the small but clean condo in a great location worked well for us. I like to cook; so it I were staying longer, it would have been less convenient with the limited kitchen. But the folks at Islander Inn were great; and the place clean and well maintained. We were there for the tsunami evacuation; the staff were very capable and made the evacuation process as easy as possible.

"Myself & my girlfirend stayed in the condo for the Hawaii Ironman in October 2012. The location is absolutely perfect, being so close to all the action of downtown Kona and supermarkets further up Palani Road. Being in between Alii Drive and the Kuakini highway means you have both a busy street on 1 side or a quiet option the other. The Kona Islander Inn, despite being in the thick of the action, is very quiet. The complex grounds and garden are very well kept and the staff helpful. Additionally there was never a wait for either the laundry room or shared bar-b-qs. The condo itself was very clean, spacious and had more than enough facilities for cooking. There was also a tv but this was never turned on by us as Kona is too beautiful to spend time watching tv! I will miss having meals on the balcony, with the smell of the bar-b-q down below". All the best, Liam

An Awesome 2 weeks stay at your Condo
An Awesome 2 weeks stay at your Condo
It was such a welcoming pleasure to arrive at your condo after a long evening flight. Your condo was very clean upon arrival and had such a warm welcoming feel. We felt very much at home. Your kitchen was so cute and with the large fridge it was so great to be able to go shopping at the market & costco and be able to buy food for more than a day or so use. Your microwave, deep electric frying pan and steamer were well used and was just great for cooking everything. Your kitchen is very well equipped and 3 people were able to work (co-ordinately) in it. Your bathroom is also very nice and was very clean.. We really liked the condo layout and your bed and pull out bed were very comfortable. We enjoyed our coffee and breakfast in the morning on your lani looking out to the wonderful plumeria trees and the pool area. The grounds are maintained so well and are so beautiful. Our dinners were so peaceful and we enjoyed sitting out on the lani at night watching the tiki torches being lit and watching the sun set.. we were in paridise for sure. You have all the things we needed for the beach. We really appreciated the beach chairs and other goodies and the cooler too. Your flat screen TV was also watched lots, with the games in London, we would come home after an awesome day at the beach or shopping and then get caught up on the games. (from the livingroom area or the lani) It is so nice to see modern upgrades in the condo. All in all I would and will recommend your condo to my friends and family and others reading these comments. I hope to be back soon and stay in your condo. We all had a super time.

Why the Owner Chose Kona Islander Inn:
Location! Location! Location! Seaside, right in town, walk everywhere. There is no better location on the island of Hawaii! Unique architecture Old Hawaiian-style tropical plantation ambience. We had a fantastic time staying at the popular seaside Kona Islander Condominiums right in town a number of years ago when we visited historic Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. You can't help but fall in love with the Hawaiian culture and Aloha spirit. We've always thought that someday we would like to own our own piece of paradise. We chose this condo at this complex because there are no condos situated better than this one! We've vacationed in the other Hawaiian islands. Exploring the Big Island of Hawaii and using our comfortable condo in its beautiful setting and very convenient location, we've concluded that it can't be beat. With all the shopping and restaurants nearby there is no need to rent a car if you choose not to. We love it here and so do our children and grandchildren. You will too!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
South-facing, our pool-view condo's unique position affords us viewing both sunrise and sunset. Our second floor condo is more private and secure than any ground floor condos. Dappled sunshine filtering through the shade tree off our lanai allows a leisurely breakfast on the lanai without the heat and glare of the tropical sun. Around 10 a.m. the lanai is bathed in sunshine until it's time for lunch around 2 p.m. when the shade returns. The third floor condos generally do not have the benefit of the shade from the trees. We enjoy having a drink at sunset while overlooking the beautiful tiki torch lit pool from our own private second floor lanai. It is especially romantic when the golden moon rises into a star-studded obsidian sky. In the still of the morning, the sunrise is majestic! Colourful tropical birds make for spectacular bird watching from our lanai as we enjoy our breakfast. We are well situated to catch the gentle tropical sea breeze which flows like silk from the lanai through our condo. Later, we may see how the bananas are ripening on the banana trees planted outside our condo's entry door or, perhaps, check if any ripe fruit has fallen from the tall papaya trees or indeed, any of the many different types of tropical fruit trees scattered around the complex grounds. When you zoom in using the hybrid satellite map below, our condo is directly up and across the blue oval pool from the green marker. You will notice that our condo building backs onto a treed, grassy area. It is the only one of the resort's 7 plantation-style buildings which does not back onto the various parking lots nor does it back onto any roads like the others do.
