We love it here at our condo at Kona Isle and think you will too. We are in an oceanfront complex on Alii Dr. and have views of the ocean, pool, palm trees and flowers from our unit. We are located in Building B, away from the street and on the quieter side of our small complex. In 2010 we remodeled the kitchen and opened it up to the living room. We replaced the countertops, added a ceiling fan and new cabinet hardware. Now there is a breakfast bar to eat at and the Kona breeze can circulate so much better now. We also painted the living room, kitchen and hallway. We replaced the plastic white chairs on the lanai with teak ones. In 2011 we replaced the bathroom vanity top and faucet and added a new storage cabinet for toiletries. We also painted the bathroom and bedroom. In 2012 we painted the interior trim and doors, front door and lanai. We also bought a new large flat screen tv and a new a/c unit in November of 2014. All the flooring is either tile or Pergo wood--no spotted or dirty carpets! 2015 updates include a new futon cover and accent pillows and a new dishwasher. In Feb. 2017 we replaced the kitchen stove with a new glass top range, replaced the microwave and added colorful seat cushions to the lanai chairs. New window ac unit in 2018.
We have lots of open green space and beautiful landscaping here at Kona Isle. Everything is situated on or near the beach. There are grills and picnic tables for enjoying meals and we provide picnic baskets and trays to take your food down. You can snooze or read in the shade under the palm trees or lounge in the chairs and get a tan in the Kona sun. Watch for the famous green flash that comes at the end of our beautiful sunsets. Our newly re-tiled pool is solar heated and the pool shower has been updated with new tile, too. Next door is a saltwater pool that is fun when the surf is high. Our lanai is a great place to read, play cards or just catch the ocean breeze. We spot whales and spinner dolphins from our lanai in the winter months.
You can walk to craft and farmer's markets from our condo or ride the Hele-On bus or the Trolley into Kona town or Keauhou for more shopping. There is a convenience/liquor store just a quick walk north on Alii. Snorkeling and deep sea fishing are spectacular here. Use our beach equipment, boogie board, towels and cooler for fun in the sun up and down the coast. And, of course, the volcano is a must see!
Hawaii is a fun, spiritual, beautiful island and our condo is located conveniently for you to see it all. When you make a reservation we can help you find the best deals on rental cars, the freshest produce, the most flavorful Kona coffee and beaches where you can spot turtles and not many tourists. Rest assured that you will have a clean, fun place here to call home while you explore the island. We replace the linens, towels and pillows frequently for your comfort and our housekeeper lives nearby if anything needs attention.
Thanks for viewing. We'll provide our annually updated guides to our favorite beaches, restaurants and fun spots to visit with every reservation. Give us a call or email us for more information.
If you find you need a larger condo please check out our other listing on VRBO#850396. It is at Alii Villas and is 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for up to 4 people. This is just up the street and is direct oceanfront. If by chance the Kona Isle condo is booked, email me and I'll quote you a discounted price on the 2 bedroom unit.

Aloha. We have been coming to Hawaii for over 25 years and the moment we landed in Kona I felt like I was 'Home'. The island has that effect on people. Fred and I have been in the building/remodeling business and most recently worked as home inspectors for 12 years. We stay in our unit every year so we keep it in shape, updated and fresh.
Janet purchased this Condo in 2000
Why Janet chose Hōlualoa
We stayed at many different condominium complexes while vacationing in Hawaii, but none of them are as welcoming, green and relaxing as Kona Isle. One of the nicest things about being here is that it is a small condo complex so there are always chairs available at the pool and beach. The condos and pool are arranged to view the ocean, not a parking lot or the street as some other complexes are. Our on-site condo manager, Brian, is very helpful and friendly and takes pride in making sure Kona Isle is a great place to stay. So, in 2000 we bought our unit and have been sharing it with family and friends ever since. Hawaii has so many unique features and places to enjoy that you will want to return again and again as we do.
What makes this Condo unique
As owners and guests ourselves, we try to anticipate your needs, so we have spices in the cabinet for you, extra light bulbs, shampoos and soaps, kleenex, laundry soap and plenty of cooking utensils, etc. Please use only what you need so that the next guests have supplies. If you find anything is not up to your standards we ask you to call or email us immediately and we will take care of it. We ask you to care for our condo in the spirit of Aloha and enjoy your stay.

Cute, clean and great location!
We had a great couple of weeks in the condo! Janet has provided everything we could possibly need during our time in Kona. Pretty view of the ocean and great complex make this a perfect spot to stay in Kona.
Hi Jodi. Thanks for the 5 star review. I'm glad you found everything you needed during your stay. Hope you had a chance to use the boogie boards you asked about and that are in the unit.
Come back again.
Mahalo and Aloha
A great place to stay while in Kailua-Kona
We really enjoyed our stay at the Kona Isle condo (unit B34). Janet was great to work with and sent all kinds of information prior to our arrival regarding shopping, restaurants, beaches, etc. and everything was just as we hoped/expected.
Mahalo for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you found the condo as you expected and found the information I sent ahead of time to be helpful. Hope you can visit again.
Our Stay at condo B34 of the Kona Isle Resort - Kailua Kona
My wife and I stayed at this condo for two weeks in Feb / March 2018. We found the unit to be very well equipped and maintained The queen bed was comfortable however for us a king would have been preferable. This condo complex is older and the units in "B" block are situated across a green space from another block of condos with the ocean and pool view being off to the right from the lanai. We enjoyed spending time on the lanai which is furnished with a large comfortable chair in addition to a table and chairs. We found the unit to be quiet and well away from street noise. Perhaps the nicest feature of this complex is the ocean front bbq, picnic and lounge area which is a great place to spend time and to watch sunsets.We found the owners to be very helpful and they reached out to us during our stay to see if we needed any additional household supplies. The only disappointment for us was that there was no landline in the condo as we didn't bring a cell phone with us. There is a number listed in the guest info so I assume there was one previously. We enjoyed our stay at this condo.
Hi, David. Thank you for the review. I am sorry that you didn't bring your cell phone with you. My listing doesn't state there is a landline so I will check to see where you got the information that there was one.
I'm glad you had a good time and yes the oceanfront bbq and beach is a wonderful spot and unique to Kona Isle. Please come back anytime.
Mahalo and Aloha,
It could not have been better!
The condo is well equipped, we did not miss anything. We enjoyed the pool, the tiny beach on the ocean front and the lush garden. Thank you Janet for the many helpful tips regarding excursions, shopping and restaurants. We would stay at the condo also a second time.
Thank you Christian for the 5 star review and please do come back for a second visit.
I am glad you used my "fun guides" that I send out with a reservation to help you plan your trip. I think it is helpful to get some recommendations when you are going to a new place.
Best wishes. Aloha and Mahalo.
Clean, exit local.
Second time at this complex. Very nice grounds, location to everything, quite. Always happy to stay here and will return. Great place.
Thank you. Jeff. Kona Isle has many return guests and I am glad you are one of them. In fact, I recently met a guest we had in the unit last January and she told me she and her husband bought a unit there this year because they loved the condo and grounds so much.
Aloha and Mahalo
Perfect Big Island vacation spot!
We cannot say enough about this lovely property. The view of great crashing waves from the lanai is perfect. THe condo is charming, very well supplied and has an extremely comfortable bed (and we're picky). Kona Isle grounds are well manicured with beautiful plantings and a swimming pool. We went down to the sandy beach on the property every night to watch the spectacular sunset. Best of all, the owner is very generous: when a snow storm cut two days out of our schedule, she asked us if we wanted to extend our stay in her condo without charge! She's also gracious: she offered to send two jackets I forgot to my home. We've stayed in many VRBO places. This is one of the very best.
Carol, thank you so much for all your compliments and the great review of the condo. I do try to be a gracious host and I want guests to feel important because they are to me.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay. The beach on the property is one of the best features of any condo complex in Kona so I am happy you commented on it. Kona Isle is a special place.
Mahalo and Aloha.
Volcano watching, Scuba diving, Manta ray viewing, Whale watching, Snuba, Coffee farm tours and tastings, On-site book lending library, Saltwater pool next door that is fun if the waves are high, ziplines, royal palace tours, historical museums, pickleball and tennis.
