About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

My wife and I spent several years going to this condo as our vacation get away, and were finally able to buy it. We feel that the location is the best in the Kona Islander Inn complex, and the view is wonderful. We have spent lots of time living there, and have put lots of effort into decorating it.

Please visit our website if you're interested, you can just do a web search for, 'ihu nui vacation rentals' if you would like. You can see many more pictures, and get some other information. We hope to speak to you soon!

About Rick Rosa

We just had some sashimi and garlic bread, watched the sunset, and we couldn't be happier!

Rick Rosa purchased this condo in 2003

Why Rick Rosa chose Kailua-Kona

This studio condo was a dream come true for my wife and I when we purchased it in

February 2003 from Linda and Grant Baseman. We feel that it is the nicest studio in

the Kona Islander complex.

Perfect location for a carefree getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Paradise! Great central location; no need to rent a car. There is plenty to do within walking distance, especially with the use on the Kona Trolley for only $2 a ride. The view from the lanai was great. We enjoyed sitting and viewing the ocean and activity on Alii Drive. Room was very comfortable and supplied with everything we needed, but not too cluttered. Couldn’t have asked for more!

Quality Big Island Stay

  • 5 of 5

Every detail of home is in this lovely appointed studio. The galley kitchen has generous appliances to accommodate any type of food preparation. Beach towels and paraphernalia, comfortable bed and pillows, fabulous view of the ocean on the lanai. Even thread and sewing needles to fix a split seam in my dress! You won't want to leave.

beautiful little place, in nice complex

  • 5 of 5

This unit at Kona Islander is fantastic.....convenient location, ocean & sunset view, beautifully decorated, well equipped, lots of extras, lovingly cared for, sweet, meticulous housekeeper (island contact), accommodating , friendly owner. Easy transaction. Photos show exactly what you get.

I hesitated in giving such a "glowing" & accurate review for fear the it will be booked continuously & I may not be able to stay again.... but I did want to be honest !

Mahalo Rick (&Colleen) & housekeeper Lenora.

Awesome condo in an awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent over 3 weeks at this wonderful condo-- the location was excellent and the condo suited our needs perfectly! An unexpected feature is that we found the condo well equipped with incidentals, from minor items like garbage bags, spices and appliances to beach items like beach chairs and a boogie board... nice that you don't have to either rent these items or buy and abandon them... great thanks to Rick and his wife for a great time!
