About mary sells

Mark and Mary live in Birdcreek, Alaska, a small rural community outside of Anchorage. Mark is a retired electrician and Mary is recently retired. We just celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary and hope to have many more in Kona. We have two grown daughters and four grandchildren. We enjoy skiing and biking in Alaska and live in a somewhat isolated area where we spend a good deal of time driving. While we're in Kona we enjoy the fact that we can head right out the front door and walk to our favorite restaurants and bars with no driving! We love our condo. We hope our guests will enjoy it as much as we do.

mary sells purchased this condo in 2001

Why mary sells chose Kailua-Kona

We have been visiting this building since 1974. Mark's parents own another penthouse in the same building. We were so happy to buy here because it feels like home to us and our family. Our girls learned to swim in the pool and now our grandkids are learning in the same pool. It's quiet, clean and in a wonderful location. It is definitely THE premiere condo building in Kona Town.

What makes this condo unique

One of the benefits of this unit is it's location! You are able to walk all around town and there are nice walking trails near by. You can have breakfast on the lanai and listen to the waves crash. With a rental car you are able to drive 2 hours south to Volcanos National Park or an hour north to some of the best white sand beaches in the Islands.

I exhale when I walk through the front door!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely love the location; middle of Kona town. Great views of the ocean and the village. We saw spinner dolphins in front of the complex from our lanai, grabbed our snorkeling gear and went swimming with them! A tricky ocean access, not for everyone so be careful, guess that keeps the crowds away. Walking out of the complex, there's the ocean. LOVE the 2 lanai and 3 bathrooms; I've stayed in this unit 3 times in the past 6 years.The recent upgrades in this unit are beautiful. Enjoy the food and local grown coffee at nearby Bongo Bens!

Loved the condo and felt the price was more than reasonable for this gem.

  • 5 of 5

Great location that had 2 fabulous views from one Lanai and a walk out deck. Nice to have 3 bathrooms as well. Walking distance to shops and restaurants with beaches close by. Modern updated kitchen and upstairs air conditioning unit that quickly cooled both floors when needed. We only used the pool a few times but it was nice and clean.

July 4th Spectacular!

Mary was very responsive to all of our needs. Condo is sufficiently supplied with easy check-in & check-out. Nice views from both lanais. We walked out onto Ali'i Drive to watch the awesome 4th of July parade & firework show that happens right in front of the condo complex! Thank you!
