Unique and immaculate First Class renovation and a nice ocean view from the lanai and peek-aboo view from the bedroom window; no detail left to the imagination... artwork from around the world and detailed mahogany framed ceilings and many extras…we have one of the best condos in the vacation rental pool; just ask people who have stayed here!

There are many beaches within a few minutes drive of the complex. Less than 1 mile from town, fully-equipped, non-smoking queen-size larger one-bedroom, one-bath with walk-in shower residential style 3rd floor condominium on Alii Drive. Very comfortable for two persons with a queen size bed and posturpedic mattress. Condo is ideal for 2 persons, but there is also a FULL size SOFA BED WITH MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS for 2 additional persons at a slight additional cost. Best of all - hear the ocean from this condo and see the white water from the lanai. (VIEW SHOWN on the left side of the lanai.) PLEASE NOTE: VIEW DEPENDENT ON LANDSCAPE AND TREE MAINTENANCE - with slight enlargement - but you can still see the ocean all year and a wonderful sunset in winter months or you may take a short walk to the sea wall). We are close enough to town to be convenient to all activities and restaurants. Hear the surf, bird songs, and trade winds in the palms. We have a very high rate of repeat visitors who return again and again (and tell their friends!) Discount for repeat guests and their referrals.

About Gene

In the true spirit of Aloha… We are committed to exceed our visitors expectations. We continually improve the quality of the condo to enhance our guest's vacation experience. We pride ourselves in attention to detail and a quick response.

Gene purchased this condo in 2009

Why Gene chose Kailua-Kona

Our nickname is 'Alii Villas 4 Seasons', and we continually redo and upgrade our condo. We have owned in Alii Villas for over 17 years. We purchased this one bedroom unit in November 2009 because we found this complex to be one of the most desirable vacation rentals on the coast. Everyone is friendly, the grounds are well manicured, the buildings are kept in good repair and we have a very good manager, assistant and groundskeeper; some of the best in all of Kona.

What makes this condo unique

Only one other apartment shares this landing. It is private and quiet. 5 Star quality and a budget pricing for the discriminating traveler. Specials for returning guests, and their referrals of family, friends and colleagues.

One of the nicest one bedroom condos in the complex. A total renovation has been completed stone left unturned. It was stripped down to the studs and concrete. A new layout for the kitchen and bedroom made those two areas very spacious and the largest in the complex of any one bedroom condo. Concierge Services by Kona Concierge available (some services free of charge)...just like at the hotels only with more personal service.

We spent the first week of February at the condo. It was beautiful, well-stocked, and very clean. The breezes cooled it off nicely and we watched the sunset each night from the lanai, listening to the surf crashing on the rocks. The lanai was private and comfortable and we really enjoyed relaxing each morning and evening on it. The walk into town was short and was much easier than driving in and trying to find parking. There were several great restaurants within easy walking distance. Gene made the whole process painless and easy! We hope to be back very soon.

Staying 11 days at Ali'i Villas Jewell

  • 3 of 5

My sisters and I loved the condo, the gorgeous view and the wonderful pool. However, one sister is on a cane and walked very slowly up and down the staircase 2 or more times per day. Also, we wished there would have been AC in the unit (even tho we know it didn't have it) as we were all quite hot. Never really cooled off at night like we thought it would. Did a lot of sightseeing on the Island and enjoyed everything we saw. Everyone was very friendly. The grounds were kept very nice. We would love to come back to your condo sometime if it only had AC. Thanks for the stay.

A Gem

  • 5 of 5

September 2017 was our first stay on this condo and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Gene and Charlie have this place in top-notch condition. It is nicely decorated and furnished. It is the neatest and cleanest place we have rented in Hawai'i over the last 10 years. It is conveniently located on Alli Drive and though not direct ocean view, you can see the ocean from the lanai. It is located close to the pool and can be viewed from the lanai. The groundskeepers are constantly working throughout the day and the grounds are nicely maintained. We would recommend and we look forward to staying again.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for taking time to review our condo on vrbo. It is very rewarding to hear our guest's comments and to know that all of our hard work and effort to make our guests feel special has been worth it. Even though we no longer own the other oceanfront condo, we still feel this condo is good value for the money, but still a nice view from the lanai. Our oceanfront condo was rented at a higher rate, but this condo has all the same amenities and a bigger kitchen. We look forward to your visit again in the future. Mahalo, gene and charlie

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We first saw this listing three years ago and booked it with Gene and Charlie - but had to cancel due to family issues. So we re-booked and AGAIN had to cancel. The 3rd time we were sure they would tell us to "get lost" but they were most welcoming and accommodating of us and we finally got there. I can't begin to say how wonderful the place is. Great location in Kona and the condo is beautifully renovated with everything you may need - from a fully stocked modern kitchen to guide books, snorkeling and beach gear to ample closet and dresser space. The bed is extremely comfortable, the bath easy for two people to share and the washer and dryer really comes in handy. We spent almost all our time when at the condo on the lanai, with it's beautiful view of the ocean and pool area - nice for morning coffee and great for sunset viewing in the evenings

We stopped at a few open houses and saw nothing as nice as this unit and even the realtors we spoke to knew of Gene and Charlie's unit as the best in the complex! We were lucky enough to have no one in the unit next door and felt like we had this "penthouse" unit all to ourselves.

The complex is also the cleanest and well kept I have ever seen. They wipe down the outdoor tables and BBQ area daily, the pool is crystal clear and the grounds are a joy to walk with their foliage and palm trees. We especially loved that there is "lenders library" at the pool with books, magazines and puzzles for all to enjoy.

I almost hate to rave about this place and want to keep it a secret, but if you are going to the Big Island, this is the about as good as it gets!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this amazing review. We feel privileged to be able to offer this property to our guests; our goal is to make the vacation for our guests a memorable one. We know the philosophy of treating potential guests the way we would like to be treated has paid off many times over. We always look forward to meeting new and returning guests whenever we are on island. We look forward to many years of hosting. Thank you again for your time in creating this review and for allowing us to be your hosts. Much aloha, gene and charlie
