                  The Big Island of Hawai'i is known for adventure ranging from whale watching to mountain climbing, and there are gorgeous beaches where you can soak up some sun too. The Kona Coast stretches for more than 60 miles on the western side of the island. Beyond its historical significance, special coffee, and opportunities for water sports, there are also some great beaches that will make you want to put your feet up and stay awhile.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: My daughter loves to come visit the Island to visit me. I live on the Hilo side of the island. I am a happy, down to earth guy with a welcoming sense of life and living. I am always interested in travel and discovery and trying something new. I enjoy meeting open minded people who enjoy exploring new places and trying new things. Photography is my passion. If you'd like recommendations on places to shoot on the Big Island, ask me! Anyone who is easy-going, sociable, and loves to laugh will get along great with me. I have one daughter living on the mainland. She is a great young professional woman. I look forward to your stay on the Big Island. I travel the world and love to discover new places and revisit my favorite 'old' places, too.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kona Islander Inn:
                  My condo is a reminder of the earlier years in Hawaiian tourism. Immaculate gardens and pool area are the best in the village. You are within walking distance to village services, shops and numerous restaurants. One of only three royal palaces in the U.S. is just a couple blocks away. Located in a lush tropical setting, the condo reminds us of old Hawaiian territorial style. Enjoy basking in the Hawaiian sun at the pool or hot tub, or just across the street at the beach areas. There is also a spa on site. Full laundry facilities are located on site for your convenience. The property is centrally located and is a great starting/ ending location for all your site seeing trips. You can buy great Hawaiian fresh fruits at the near by farmers market.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Cleaning service is done at your checkout. If you desire additional cleanings please inform us for availability and the costs.
