Property description

We are at the epic center of Kona. Whether a week or two, a month or more, your stay is variety at your finger-tips and spaces to explore that perpetually give both invigorating bliss and adventure.


Tropic colors decorate an experience Hawaiian style. Our approximate 400 sqft studio condo is spacious yet cozy with comfort. A queen bed with a 3' gel topper gives total sleep pleasure. Our linens are luxery threads. Storage space below the bed. Paintings share your dreams of life in the Hawaii tropics. A darling round tiled cafe table with 2 cushioned chairs. A quality sofa-bed. Lots of space to put your personals in a Hawaiian style- 3-drawer dresser & end table, bamboo teak desk and bookcase shelf. Private wi-fi capable of smart phones, tablets, I-pads. Flat TV with DVD insert. Fully equipped kitchenette with 3/4 size frost-free freezer-refrigerator. Two sinks. Electric skillet, blender, rice cooker, crock pot, electric hot water kettle for teapot or for veggies. Dishes, bowls, glasses, silverware, cooking utensils, sharp knives, can opener, wine opener, strainer, BBQ utensils and carry-tray.

A reverse osmosis water tap, perfect for your favorite coffee and drinking water and cooking. Coffee pot with two pots: 12-cup glass pot and an 8-cup thermal pot that never tastes bitter no matter how long it waits. We have ample coffee filters.

We installed a brand-new shower stall, with a surrounding bamboo motif to give it that authentic outdoor Hawaiian tropic waterfall feel with just a little imagination and a rested soul! Bath towels, hand-towels, washcloths. A bathroom hand-rail. Overhead fans in both the living/bedroom area and the kitchen. The living room fan has a remote next to the bed on the wall for easy adjustments.

Our lanai has a patio table and 2 chairs and outdoor light for the evening dining or reading. The view is spectacular! Ocean view! and view for Ironman! Hibiscus flowers greet you first, with red ginger behind them contrasting a lovely green lawn with iconic tall palms with the blue Kona ocean directly beyond. Our corner lanai enjoys a jungle-like view on the corner end. Either the pool or the ocean is literally steps. The common pool enjoys a gas BBQ to grill, hot-tub, lounge chairs and umbrella table/chair sets. We have tiki-torches entertaining the perimeter at night, to add a festive and exotic touch. The walkways delight in their lush Hawaii jungle growth. Red ginger, Plumeria trees, banana trees, bushes ferns flowers a lot of green.

We have 2 beach chairs and a SPF50 beach umbrella, 2 bamboo mats for the sand, and 2 beach towels. The 'Kona Trolley' routinely makes it's route all along Ali'i Drive, extending from shopping centers in both directions, north and south. $2 is a deal to make a car virtually not a necessity -- though of course always very convenient, especially if your travel dreams involve get-up and go sight-seeing ventures. Parking is available at our condo's parking lot with our permit hung on your visor.
The Farmer's Market is the next block. Waterfront Row across the street, with a huge long dock comprised of a restaurants, shopping, tours, music some evenings at Waterfront Row, waterfront with crashing waves on the bulkhead. $2 trolley to Kahalu'u Beach Park for snorkeling! besides a walk to the pier for a morning's snorkel!


Kona living is filled with birds chirping, ocean waves, trade winds, volcano, beaches, snorkeling, shopping for keepsakes, whether tropic clothes, shoes, art, crafts, food.

Restaurants surround. Many with music. Many with ocean views. Many with happy-hr specials including food. Every venue -- from fine to a wide arrangement of mid to the more simple. Wide arrangement of cuisine -- fish to steak, hummus too. Ethnic choices too. Indian, Asian, Mexican, Italian. Besides, remember, you can be your own personal BBQ chef, at the pool or on an upper deck off the main front lobby building.

Snorkeling can be local at the King Kamehameha Beach pier area 10 min where the Ironman begins, or down along Ali'i Dr either on the bus or drive to Kahalu'u Beach Park for a protected reef bay filled with fish, great for snoreling. Other fantastic snorkeling beaches abound north and south. Choices of catamaran trips, kayaking, paddle boarding, outrigger canoes, bicycling, moped scooters, monthly art walk festival, monthly hula music event, Zumba across the street twice a week, a book exchange at our open air lobby, massage therapists who also do the lomi-lomi style, discovering history at the Queen's palace with a tour, or surprise both yourself and your best ones with a henna tattoo! You'll make this your memory for what you crave to see, to be, to do, to live. Kona offers peace and joy.

The Big Island offers time to savor. Time to delight. Time to live.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband and I attended Garfield High School in Seattle Wa. We met at the live dances given elsewhere, and were first-loves at 15. We remained friends, and met twice again -- once after my husband returned from Viet Nam in 1969, and again after my divorce in 1975 when he went to school to become a commercial sea diver. We re-met 17 years ago in 1997 and married in 2000, so it's easy to remember our anniversary years though we always add 3 years. We both love to travel, and we immediately moved to Mazatlan, Mexico to get out of the rain in Seattle, where we lived. 10 years later, after residing in Arizona where I worked for the airlines, and then in Ventura County where we took care of my father for his last 3 l/2 years, we returned to Seattle, to reunite with our home front. However, the tropics never left our soul. After visiting Oahu, Kawai, and Maui, the Big Island of Hawaii is all the peace and beauty and fabulous life we hoped! A home with an ocean view! A lanai to spend outside! A pool! Market! Ocean beaches!Snorkeling! Restaurant choices everywhere! And a wonderful kind culture with the best people, caring about one another in unity.

Why the Owner Chose Kona Islander Inn:
Our lanai's ocean view was love at first sight, all amid tropical flowers and palms, sound of the surf, birds, and great ocean breeze. We love everything about life in the tropics. Kona, Hawaii's the best! We live in Seattle, though we left for 10 years to find the sun. we lived in Arizona, Mazatlan Mexico, and So California, but only in Kona can we live across from the ocean, see it, hear the waves crash, and in moments be sitting on the beach watching the tide roll in, spot turtles, crabs, spinning dolphins. We visit here twice a year to both enjoy it, and to check every detail and make upgrades. This is our heart's home and we love the idea of sharing it with others who also find our condo an oasis of the spirit. We love the air mixed with the ocean. We love the lush plants and flowers on the property, the birds, the market with all the fresh produce just a block. We have the ocean to swim, snorkel, and the pool with covered tables and chaise lounges, BBQ, hot-tub -- for space to read, to chat or do Wi-Fi. We've visited the other 3 islands most see, but Kona is the perfect village offering us a life-style that is fun, relaxed, varied every day, regenerating to our very soul.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo speaks of the Hawaiian culture and colors, offers home comforts, and resort luxuries of Old Hawaiiana gardens, immediate choice of restaurants, recreation, entertainment, relaxation.
