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.

Everything you could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mark and Mary’s for two weeks and it was perfect. We were able to limit the clothing we packed knowing we had a washer and dryer in the unit, which was super helpful. We utilized both the rooftop deck and lanai daily, the views were fantastic. Mark and Mary have stocked their place with everything you need and then some. The location is outstanding, so close to everything, we only rented a car for two days our whole stay! Mark and Mary picked an amazing place for their second home. Not only were they super friendly and helpful during our entire stay, so were the residents! Always striking up conversations, giving suggestions on things to see or places to go, very helpful. We loved our stay and will not hesitate to book this condo again the minute we decide to head back to Kona.

Great location ... Wonderful unit !

  • 5 of 5

This unit has everything you could want! It has a beautiful kitchen so you can prepare your own meals if you want to or because it is in a prime location you can walk to the many different restaurants located on Alii'i Drive easily anytime. It has a lovely big Lanai with water views which we sat out on everyday. The whole unit is spacious and tastefully decorated (we loved the gecko theme) and stocked with everything you could need.

We absolutely loved our stay here and will definitely be back again for another visit.

Thank you Mary and Mark.

Best VRBO we have stayed at this far .

  • 5 of 5

This unit was centrally located and within walking distance to all the shops. The unit was so well stocked you would think you were at home. The loft gets full sun all day and gets warm early in the day so the AC came in handy and worked wonderfully. The unit even comes with its own parking slot. We will definitely be renting this condo again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Condo was great. Nice location and very comfortable (minus no air conditioning). After paying a large cleaning fee it was unusual to receive a notice that you cannot leave more than 2 loads of laundry while one set of sheets took up the washer. Minus those little details we really enjoyed our stay and loved the roof-top lanai
