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 Kona Coast

Our nickname is 'Alii Villas 4 Seasons', and we continually redo and upgrade our condos. We have owned in Alii Villas for over 15 years. We have another two bedroom condo in the same complex and 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 price. Specials for returning guests.

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.

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!

Sad to leave......

  • 5 of 5

I write this review on my last night here ....this place has been my home for The last two weeks. This is my second time here and I most definitely will return again and again. This condo leaves you wanting absolutely nothing more then it can give. It's beautifully has everything that you need and more. I used to be a timeshare condo owner but no more. This place is easy to book ...there's no drama ...I can't say enough about it - especially after reading all the other reviews ---there is nothing more to say : just come here and enjoy !! aloha

Practically perfect in every way (like Mary Poppins)

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and has a lovely view from the lanai. More importantly, nothing has been forgotten. There is more than enough of everything from bed linens through towels to dishes and cutlery. This is absolutely the best-supplied kitchen I have ever had in a rental. There are spices and condiments available. Also, there is laundry and dish detergent, paper towels, cleaning supplies, first aid supplies, etc. And how nice to have beach chairs and boogie boards for those days by the shore.

Outside the condo, the complex is very nice and the pool is perfect; just warm enough. It is a bit of a walk into town along a busy road, so we preferred to drive, but there is lots of parking in Kailua Kona.

We thoroughly recommend this unit to everyone. The owners are fantastic to deal with and really care about their property and the happiness of their guests. I will be following their lead in furnishing my own new rental property!

Amazing Condo in Kona

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo upon a recommendation from a friend and it was everything she had said and more. Gene and Charlie have a beautiful condo and have perfected every last detail to make you feel comfortable in their home. The condo has been beautifully remodeled with extraordinary details in every room. The lanai was spacious with table and chairs to enjoy the gorgeous view of the ocean. At night we could hear the ocean waves crashing which was delightful. The beach equipment contained umbrella, chairs, and even coolers which was exactly perfect for a day at the beach. We really can't adequately express how much we enjoyed this condo and would dearly love to return and stay here again. Mahalo Gene and Charlie for making our stay so memorable!

Heaven In Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this condo the first time we walked in the door. The unit is beautifully decorated and due to an extensive renovation, has the best layout of any Alii Villa unit. It is stocked with everything you could possibly want to enjoy your time in Kona, not just beach equipment but enough cookware to prepare gourmet meals for a gang. We even had our choice of firm or soft pillows! From the lanai we enjoyed spectacular sunsets while listening to the ocean breeze whistle through the palm trees. It truly is heaven in paradise and we can't wait to return for our fourth stay here. Kudos to Gene and Charlie who are the best hosts ever!

Excellent location and quality condo

  • 5 of 5

Gene and Charlie have thought of everything for the comfort of their guests. This condo was very comfortable for our 3 week stay. The furnishings were comfortable including the bed. The housekeeping staff do an amazing job in keeping this condo top notch! We found lots of extra sundry items, cooking spices and beach accessories for our use. The condo complex was quiet and the grounds and pool were well maintained. Parking is very convenient to the condo's stairwell. The condo overlooked the pool so it was easy to enjoy it everyday. The walk to town took approximately 20 minutes one way. We appreciated the use of a good washer and dryer along with the in room safe. The owners respond promptly to any questions via email.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We would recommend your condo to our family and friends.
