Kona Isle condo description

Aloha and Mahalo for visiting our site!

We recognize that these are hard economic times.

We are ordinary people, retired and very fortunate to own such a beautiful condo. Our goal is to provide our guests with the safest, cleanest, most beautifully furnished, well stocked condo, supported by layers of support and customer service. Simply put, your holiday and the memories of it are very important to us. In these tough times we feel it necessary to keep our rates low, for your sake and ours without compromising the quality of your holiday. So take a look, we are extremely proud of our unit and the beautiful grounds of KONA ISLE. With these prices we truly believe this is one of the best values on the Big Island. Guests who have stayed with us have loved the location, the cleanliness and the special attention to detail with which we have outfitted our unit. (Two issues here: when was the last time you stayed anywhere where THE BED COMFORTER WAS WASHED BETWEEN GUESTS? - we do and look at the 'Traveler Reviews ' section, just above this section, we cannot change what is submitted and we are proud of the comments!!)

Our small (74 unit) complex caters to those who would like to enjoy serenity, a sparkling clean HEATED pool to swim in, beach side BBQing using BBQs that are cleaned daily, awesome sunsets and yet close to the heart of the Kona vacation experience. I emphasize heated because it is important: most pools go unused in Hawaii. From our experience many visitors tour most of the day and tend to enjoy a relaxing swim in the early evening hours. There is nothing like the experience of lying back in a heated pool and looking up at the moon through palm trees! That is tranquility!

Using the lessons we have learned we focused on making the unit feel like home, not like some sterile hotel room without any character. Bright Hawaiian colors and all a guest might need for a great vacation: two coolers for that beach picnic, beach chairs and snorkel gear, some great Hawaiian CDs to enjoy while you are browsing through the many Hawaiian reference books, planning the next day's experiences, a really comfortable bed for a good night's sleep, a Brita water filter system so your coffee in the morning will be as good as it should be and a kitchen stocked with many basics from spices to tinfoil, laundry soap to cooking oil all to save you time and money.

We proudly offer it newly refurbished with a Hawaiian decor and all the amenities you should need for your vacation. We listen very carefully to our guests and make changes and improvements on our twice a year visit. In November of 2013 we had it professionally painted, updated the furniture in the living room, replaced the TV and DVD with state of the art units, did our annual towel and linen replacement, our semi annual deep cleaning ... and much more. You are important to us... we are doing all we can to make your vacation a very special one.

Just added: FREE LONG DISTANCE CALLING to Canada and the US as well as secure wireless connectivity in the condo.



We take great pride in our unit. With 12 years experience of owning a condo in Hawaii, we believe we have found the perfect combination of all that Hawaii has to offer. It is important to us to provide a very clean, quiet on-the-ocean holiday experience.

One last point, while some rent the same sized unit allowing 4 guests, we do not. We want you to really enjoy your stay and not be in cramped quarters, so in the fall of 2013 we replaced the pull out sofa with a more comfortable one that does not make into a bed. We do however include a fully equipped Pack 'n Play for any younger guest!

Mahalo for visiting our site. May you enjoy your Hawaiian holiday where ever you choose to stay!

Rod and Delana

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We fell in love with Hawaii in the 1990's, when Delana worked part time nursing on Kauai. With vacation rentals so very expensive we felt forced to buy a little condo. It proved to be a wonderful decision! In 2005 we decided that Kona would be a better place for us: it has the least rainfall in the state. In purchasing, furnishing and decorating our Kona Isle condo, we wanted it to become a tranquil retreat, with as many of the comforts of home as was possible. To quote a guest 'New furniture, comfortable bed and the place was clean! Not to forget to mention all the thought that was put into their condo to make sure we were comfortable and had everything that we could imagine! I have had a condo vacation rental myself before and we both think alike! Thankyou Rod and Delana for making our trip memorable! We are definitely coming back in the future!' We seem to have arrived at the right combination, we have had some guests return more than 8 times with one actually on their thirteenth stay!! Rod and Delana

                  Why the Owner Chose Kona Isle:
                  Kona Isle has some of the most beautiful grounds and waterfront areas in all of Kona. Kona boasts the least rainfall in the state! There is so much to see and do: from volcanoes to lava heated pools. You can circumnavigate the Island in just over 4 hours including a picnic on a beach near Hilo, the midway point! The Big Island has it all and the true Aloha spirit prevails.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN- we are relentless about cleanliness. Yes - we do insist that as every new guest arrives, there is washed comforter on the bed. Ever had that guarantee from any hotel?? Our cleaning staff understand how we feel and work to support our standard. Because Kona Isle is a small 'boutique' 74 unit development with only one bedroom units, neither the pool or BBQ areas are crowded. The BBQ and pool are situated beside the water rather than between the buildings. The result: it is particularly appealing to those who want a quiet and restful holiday. A nightly feature is to BBQ (so close to the water that sometimes you can feel the spray) and then enjoy dining RIGHT AT THE WATER'S EDGE!
