Excellent location, small and handy
Excellent location, small and handy
An excellent location in Kona! We had a great stay here and the description is accurate. Gigi was very helpful in arranging the place for us. The place is small and could do with some maintenance but it has everything you need, and the location more than makes up for it.

Owner response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Having the ocean view right out your lanai is pretty incredible. Plus being downtown, makes it quite convenient. We did many renovations in the front room and geared up for comfort, convenience and cleanliness. The kitchen and bathroom is next on our list and renovations will be completely done in spring!
The unit was exactly as advertised. The location was awesome, close to everything and the view from the lanai was fantastic. The unit is clean, well kept and has a very firm bed. Gigi was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this unit.

Owner response: Aloha, I am glad you both had a great time and it was what you expected. I always try to go above and beyond to give one to one personal service for my Guests. I know it is expensive to go to Hawaii and I want my Guests to get the quality and comfort they deserve, as if it were myself. Much Mahalo for your review! Gigi

I am IronMan from Japan. It was excellent! I was right downtown by starting. I love the hot tub and pool. I will recommend and tell all of my Japanese friends. It was very reasonable and I was surprised how clean and nice it was. I loved waking up to the sound of the ocean.

Beautiful condo grounds
Beautiful condo grounds
The condo was as described. The main bedroom/living room part was very nicely furnished and clean. It is a bachelor, but it was comfortable for 2 adults. We enjoyed the AC and DVD player provided. The bed was comfortable, as was the couch. No complaints about the main room. The kitchenette/bathroom area was quite small and really did not meet our needs. There is only 1 sink, so you wash your hands and brush your teeth in the same room as you prepare food. Especially in the morning, this setup was a bit awkward. We decided to eat out for dinner every night as it was just easier. This is not like us, as we had just spent a week in a condo in Maui with a full kitchen and made our dinner every night. However, despite this, we enjoyed our stay and loved the condo grounds. The Inn operators have made huge attempts to create an oasis in the middle of a busy street (read loud and lots of traffic and foot traffic). Lots of huge plants and flower line the walkways on the grounds. The pool and hot tub are fantastic and relaxing. This is where we spent most of our time while on the grounds. For the price, this condo is a great option and is within walking distance to several restaurants and Jack's Diving Locker (Manta Ray night dive or snorkel highly recommended). We ate twice at Rosa's Cantina - excellent!

Owner response: Aloha, I am glad you enjoyed your stay at our Condo. I always try to make sure there are no surprises and show many pics and give lots of information. I am a one-on-one "no nonsense" home owner and want to give my Guests what I would expect from a condo. As of now we have taken a lengthy process to update the condo as you have mentioned. We are presently working on phase 2 of the renovations so possibly by your next visit there will be 2 sinks and an updated kitchen! I know this is not always convenient but I try to make up for it in other ways with many handy appliances, early check in's, late check outs (such as your 9 PM check out, instead of 10 am, giving you a complete extra day.) I take pride in it's being clean, neat & comfortable. Having the Ocean View and being Centrally located is a huge bonus. As you mentioned the price is the best in town. Our Home Owner Association has gone above and beyond with our grounds. The pool and hot tub, BBQ area is an Oasis for sure. We are all involved in this process to make sure it is Safe and Clean. We take pride in our accomplishments and thanks for mentioning it! It is a lot of hard work but we all pull together to make it our little paradise. Thank you for your response and hope to see you again in the future. Mahalo nui loa, Gigi

very decent condo
very decent condo
Overall, we are very satisfied with our stay. The condo is very well located and Gigi did everything to make the welcoming condon. The bedding was clean and comfortable. However, the condition could have been a little cleaner. The residence is very nice and the staff is quite friendly. In conclusion, I recommend this place.

Owner response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Hawaii! When you mentioned that "it could have been a little cleaner" I know that you found a stain on a towel. It is my utmost goal to make sure that every Guest is satisfied with the clean and neat condition I maintain in our condo. In all fairness I must mention that at the time the cleaning person went to go to the condo that it was during the huge Tropical Storm "Flossie" and she was unable to come until the next day to bring additional towels. Thank your for your input and as always I encourage all Guests to let me know immediately upon arrival of any conditions they do not find up to their standards so that I can accommodate them. I take great pride in our condo and am a "no nonsense" kind-a-gal. I know it is a lot of money to come to Hawaii and want the best experience for my Guests, as if it were myself. Much Aloha! Gigi

About the owner: We put our heart & soul into our Hawaii Unit. It was remodeled with Hawaiiana Design. We retired and moved to Hawaii for the winters. I came from Buffalo, NY & Cape Cod, MA. My husband from Northern CA. This is a golfers paradise (ask my husband... wink wink ;p) as well as a beach tropical dream. We split our time in Kona & Cape Cod. We rent it out when we are not here. Therefore you will find it CLEAN & NEAT with many small appliances for your needs. Although it is small and the kitchen smaller, it meets our needs. Having the Ocean waves right out the door is what makes it so special. Some of these units at The Islander are not up to par as is ours. We take pride in our unit and reputation. The grounds on the other hand are unbelievably gorgeous and tropical Hawaiiana and well kept. Banana trees onsite and occasionally in lobby you can get some local fruit from the trees! We do BBQ very often and meet people at the pool, hot tub area and it is so much fun. It is quiet and security is amazing. 10 CUBIC FRIDGE! fridge with freezer. (see pics) FRIDGE ENVY!!
Why the Owner Chose Kona Islander Inn:
Kona is laid back. Not the busy hustle and bustle of the city. It has wonderful restaurants and beaches all over the place. It is hard to decide which one to go to. IRONMAN??!!! WATCH FROM THE ROOM LANAI!!! WALK TO START IN MINUTES!! http://www.ironman.com/triathlon/events/ironman/world-championship/course.aspx
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Being Downtown has it's advantages. You can walk to everything & work off all of the great food. Parking is limited so it's great to not even deal with a car. I have a moped for fun. You can rent them downtown too. Visit Black, White & Green Sand beaches on Big Island Hawaii. Walk to a Luau at King Kamehameha Hotel.
