"The apartment is really nice, well designed, with a nice lanai on the pool. The place is very quiet so you'll have wonderful night of sleeping. In the apartment you'll find everything you need to make your vacation a great one. They give you beach supplies and more. It's really in the centre of Kona, so you don't have to drive to have breakfast or dinner, everything is really, really close, just five minute walk or even less! If I've ever come back to the Big Island I'll check for the availability of this place first!"

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Our popular ocean-side pool view condo on the second floor at the Kona Islander Condominiums with Old Hawaiian Plantation-style lobby and grand lanai is in the perfect location right in town, central to everything, walk everywhere! We offer beautiful, clean and comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. This is a privately owned, tastefully furnished, upgraded studio, 425 sq. ft, 40 sq. m., pool view beach condo plus lanai. If you are looking for an isolated, out-of-town, high end condo with a separate bedroom, this is not for you. If you are looking for a cozy, upgraded vacation rental studio right downtown, this is for you. Located on Ali'i Drive beach road right in the historic village of Kailua in Kona, you can walk everywhere instead of having to drive or take a cab - especially convenient after going out on the town. You really can't get a better and quieter studio beach condo location in the village than this one.
ALOHA, EXPERIENCE THE AMBIANCE OF OLD HAWAII. Welcome to our quiet beach condo set amid lush grounds abounded with floral gardens, banana, papaya, royal palms, coconut palms and walking palms. Bask in the Hawaiian sunshine at our beautiful pool and Jacuzzi hot tub spa. A few steps along our meandering hibiscus-lined paths lead you from our studio condo right to your own white sand sunning beach just across the narrow beach road. Relax and read a book or marvel at the daring surfers catching the curling waves just off the beach for Hawaii is the birthplace of surfing. Have a romantic dinner on your own private second floor condo lanai overlooking the tiki torch-lit pool, coconut palms and beautiful flowering plumeria trees. Relax and unwind in this peaceful setting. It's a truly friendly place to stay!
YOUR COMFORTABLE CONDO AND QUIET SETTING ARE YOUR PERSONAL RETREAT YET YOU HAVE ALL THE FUN OF DOWNTOWN WAITING FOR YOU JUST OUTSIDE OUR GARDEN GATE ON ALI'I DRIVE. In the morning, breakfast on your lanai in the dappled sunshine filtering through the palm fronds and watch the colorful tropical birds or perhaps walk our meandering paths that lead to the many cafes for breakfast just down the road. Then go exploring! Soak up the sun and the exotic Hawaiian atmosphere as you stroll down Ali'i Drive, the beach road that winds its way along the interesting shops of the historic village of Kailua in Kona. Along the way, enjoy a cup of world famous Kona coffee which is grown right on the slope above Kailua-Kona. You will discover the Kona Farmer's Market less than a block away for fresh fruit and vegetables, exotic flowers includingl Hawaiian leis and Hawaiian souvenirs and gifts. There is excellent shopping, restaurants, bars, nightlife and a myriad of tourist activities just a short stroll on either side of the resort. For example, dine at Bubba Gumps seafood, Lava Java, Polynesian, Thai and many other international food restaurants. Walk to McDonald's, pizza parlors and other chain restaurants. Our very affordable condo is central to all the best beaches - sunning, swimming, surfing, snorkeling and diving. We are within easy walking distance of the famous King Kamehameha Hulihe'e Palace. Kailua-Kona was the original seat of government for the Kingdom of Hawaii after Chief Kamehameha of Kona consolidated his rule over most of the Hawaiian Islands and became the king. The famous Ironman Triathlon World Championship start and finish is nearby at the world-famous, Kailua-Kona pier. You will notice that we are on the drier side of the Big Island of Hawaii on the sunny Kona coast. Perhaps plan a day trip farther afield to view an active lava-spewing volcano on the other side of the island. Later, maybe on to Hilo where it tends to rain a little more to see Rainbow Falls. You can also drive up to the top of Mauna Kea where a cluster of international celestial observatories are so high up that they are at the year-round snow elevation at the summit. If you are a tennis afficienado, there is a free public tennis court and basketball court in the park one block from our condo. Want to learn how to surf and be safe in the surf? Hawaii Lifeguard Surf Instructors building is but blocks away along the beach road, Ali'i Drive. If golf is your passion, there are at least 10 golf courses within a 20 mile radius - ranging from Championship 18 hole courses to easier 9 hole courses. There are many historical churches within a short stroll, all very interesting. Kona is the start point of expeditions to the volcano by helicopter, by car, by inter-city bus, by tour bus, by boat. Then there is the Parker Ranch, the celestial observatories, the historic Hawaiian cultural sites, the nearby university, the Natural Energy labs NELHA, the luaus, the surfing, the....
'Popular Kona Islander Condominiums is one of the exclusive Big Island settings of the romantic Hawaiian adventure novel 'Thundersea' by internationally acclaimed author Ernie Palamarek, whose novels also include the Secret Temple of Kintamani, Along Cama a Swagman, Amazonia and Hatari. His intriguing story, Thundersea, is based upon the history, myths, legends, first-hand experiences and tales of the Hawaiian people hidden within the veils of time and brought forward explosively into present day Hawaii.' Quoted with permission. The famous writer Mark Twain (novels 'Tom Sawyer'; 'Huckleberry Finn') said in the 1800's, 'Kailua, Kona is the Sundayest town I've ever been in! It's the greatest place to relax!' And, you know what? It still is! You'll love it here at our comfortable condo and want to come back time and time again!
Stay in the fabulous historic village of Kailua in Kona at the best-located condo on sunny Kona coast, grab your sunglasses, flip flops & sun lotion and get that beach book to read. Your place in the Hawaiian sun is here!

Owner purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Owner chose Historic Kailua Village
Location! Location! Location! Seaside, right in town, walk everywhere. There is no better location on the island of Hawaii! Unique architecture Old Hawaiian-style tropical plantation ambience. We had a fantastic time staying at the popular seaside Kona Islander Condominiums right in town a number of years ago when we visited historic Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. You can't help but fall in love with the Hawaiian culture and Aloha spirit. We've always thought that someday we would like to own our own piece of paradise. We chose this condo at this complex because there are no condos situated better than this one! We've vacationed in the other Hawaiian islands. Exploring the Big Island of Hawaii and using our comfortable condo in its beautiful setting and very convenient location, we've concluded that it can't be beat. With all the shopping and restaurants nearby there is no need to rent a car if you choose not to. We love it here and so do our children and grandchildren. You will too!
What makes this Condo unique
South-facing, our pool-view condo's unique position affords us viewing both sunrise and sunset. Our second floor condo is more private and secure than any ground floor condos. Dappled sunshine filtering through the shade tree off our lanai allows a leisurely breakfast on the lanai without the heat and glare of the tropical sun. Around 10 a.m. the lanai is bathed in sunshine until it's time for lunch around 2 p.m. when the shade returns. The third floor condos generally do not have the benefit of the shade from the trees. We enjoy having a drink at sunset while overlooking the beautiful tiki torch lit pool from our own private second floor lanai. It is especially romantic when the golden moon rises into a star-studded obsidian sky. In the still of the morning, the sunrise is majestic! Colourful tropical birds make for spectacular bird watching from our lanai as we enjoy our breakfast. We are well situated to catch the gentle tropical sea breeze which flows like silk from the lanai through our condo. Later, we may see how the bananas are ripening on the banana trees planted outside our condo's entry door or, perhaps, check if any ripe fruit has fallen from the tall papaya trees or indeed, any of the different types of tropical fruit trees scattered around the complex grounds. When you zoom in using the hybrid satellite map below, our condo is directly up and across the blue oval pool from the green marker. You will notice that our condo building backs onto a treed, grassy area. It is the only one of the resort's 7 plantation-style buildings which does not back onto the various parking lots nor does it back onto any roads like the others do.

Beautiful condo in a lovely setting!
This is a very quaint and well managed condo in a friendly and relaxed older plantation style condo with lots of trees and flowering plants. It has a lovely lanai overlooking the pool area. The condo was very clean and well stocked with everything one might need. Within walking distance to the pier, a nice swimming and snorkeling area as well as all of the shops and restaurants. Very friendly and safe area. My son and I loved staying there and hope to visit again! Thank You! Holly and Aaron
Mahalo! We'd love to have you stay again, Holly.
Sandra and Ernie & Sharon
We really enjoyed our stay (second time), beautiful property, excellent location. The condo has everything you need, including lots of towels, beach towels, cooking utensils etc. We even found some candles in the cupboard to cast a romantic glow over our dinner on the balcony. Will definitely be back.
Mahalo, Jay! We would very much welcome a return visit.

Excellent Location in Kona
We really enjoyed our stay. The extra touches were great, including plenty of extra towels, thick beach/pool towels, cooking appliances (if you want to cook in your suite) and the sink in the bathroom (loved it)..... Nicely decorated and very clean. We had a small problem with the shower drain, were impressed by how quickly it was fixed. Definitely will stay here again. Very nice property, great pool, walking distance to everything. We have stayed at other suites at the Kona Islander and this was by far the best.
Nice grounds well kept, every thing in walking distance.
. Place was well supplied and clean. Will plan on staying here again 5-10 min walk to great food, beach, bars and stores.
Had a wonderful stay in Kona at your condo, well equipped and a great location.
The property is obviously well maintained and the mature plantings really added to the Hawaiian experience.
Take a copy of Thundersea along with you to read then tour the book's exotic locations on the island of Hawaii. It's a great beach book! Arrange island, volcano and other tours in the lobby or nearby just out on Ali'i Drive, the beach road . Shop at the multitude of interesting Kailua-Kona village shops along Ali'i Drive. Dine at one of the 150 different restaurants every night. Check out the clubs and bars then simply stroll back to your condo. NELHA - National Energy Labs Hawaii (by the Kona airport), take the on-site free tour! King Kamehameha Palace - a tour within easy walking distance from your condo! Central to the famous Ironman Triathlon World Competition first half of October. The farmer's market for fresh fruit, produce, exotic flowers, Kona coffee and authentic Hawaiian-made souvenirs is just a half-block away, all at very reasonable prices. Luau's and hula shows nearby. Wyland Art Gallery is next door. For only a couple dollars each way you can take an open-air trolley, The Honu Express along Ali'i Drive through town between shopping malls, stopping at different beaches and shops en-route. You can see the sights in town while doing some shopping or getting out to do some snorkeling at one of the many bays! It's a fun way to get around! Your condo is central to all the different tropical bays where turtles hang out and whales spout. . . .
