About the property

Newly Remodeled 1 Bed 2 Bath Gem With Beautiful Ocean Views.

Whether you are an Ironman triathlete or an ocean enthusiast, this stunning, just remodeled property, will please all. It's location in the downtown Kona, is lively and in the heart of all the amenities. Restaurants, shopping, the ocean are literally at your doorstep. It is roomy enough for up to 4 guests, as there is a sleeper sofa. 2 spacious bathrooms provide comfort for all the guests. The amazing chef's kitchen has it all at your fingertips and is open in a great room atmosphere. The furnishings are high end and designed to entertain. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and the bed is king size. The walk-in closet has ample space for your belongings. The lanai looks out onto the ocean and also, to the pool and immaculately kept gardens. The 2 chaise lounges are a great spot to sit and view the ocean with your favorite cocktail and the dining table seats up to 4. If you are competing in the Ironman, it is a stones throw from the Expo/finish line. If you are a spectator, the athletes can be seen sitting on our beautiful lanai. The pool is pristine and excellently maintained. There is a lovely waterfall feature and a BBQ for your convenience. There are cooling trade winds and gorgeous sunsets. There is a festive night life and live music usually morning to night. It's relaxing to sit and sip a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee house on the ocean, listening to live music while you people watch. It is fabulous to head over to any local restaurant or bar and watch the sunset with your friends or family sharing some wine. Don't forget to walk to yoga class and then hit the farmer's market for the freshest local produce. Alii drive is the greatest spot for athletes to get a good long run in and train right where the Ironman competitors compete. White sand beaches like Lunapule and king Kamehameha beaches and are within walking distance. Even try renting a paddle board or kayak at King Kam beach and see how far you can go. Grocery stores are with in a couple miles but don't worry, if you forget something there is a convenient store a couple doors down. So, creating a delicious master piece in this wonderful kitchen is a snap. There is something for everyone at the Kona Alii and we hope you enjoy your stay.

About Donald & Joanna Netzke

We reside in Southern California where we are raising our children. We have many family members dispersed amongst the Hawaiian islands and we visit them frequently. We travel extensively internationally as well. We appreciate the comforts of home when we travel, so it is with great pleasure that we can share our home with other travelers.

Donald & Joanna Netzke purchased this condo in 1998

Why Donald & Joanna Netzke chose Kailua-Kona

There just is not any other spot in the world as unique as downtown Kona. We have been part-time residence for years and we still are leaning new treasures that the Big Island has to offer. Plus, we like to spend time with our family members here in the islands and we have created many lasting memories for our children here and yet still have more to come.

What makes this condo unique

This location is what sold us. We feel we can easily go an entire week without having to get in a car. The beauty of this spot is that it has it all within arms reach. Honestly though, the view from the lanai is hypnotic and with the breeze and the fresh ocean air, we can hardly peel ourselves away from the chaise lounges. Many good naps have occurred there!

The complex can use some upgrades and better maintenance but the condo unit was very nice.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the view of the ocean and the unit was very nice and comfortable. The owner was very responsive to our needs and promptly made a few changes in the directions that were a little confusing on arrival

Asolutely Top Notch :)

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you walk in the door your first word is going to be WOW! and it will continue to be that same word as you go from room to room, you will be in complete awe of the place as you let it wash over you for the first few minutes, then you most likely will head out onto the very spacious Lanai (as I did) and say WOW! a few more times for good measure.

apart from the unpretentious luxury, you cant help feel immediately at home here, I didn't feel like I shouldn't touch anything in fact I microwaved a Burrito and put my feet up on the couch ( shoes off of course) and turned on the TV. It was a magnificent place to spend 4 day's in Kona, the location was smack dab in the middle of everything, it was quiet at night time other than the gentle roar of the pacific slapping onto the beach and breakfast & coffee on the Lanai in the morning's was simply priceless.

Our whole experience was smooth and professional from the very beginning, the booking was effortless, very well priced and definite bang for your buck$.

I couldn't recommend this condo and it's cleanliness, security and location any more highly if I tried, not to mention it's enchanting and very helpful owner JoJo who was more than patient with some of the questions I had for her. For the price & the location you would be crazy to be staying anywhere else, and I cant wait to stay there again

Sincerely....... a very happy customer from Anchorage Alaska................ Aloha :)

Almost everything was perfect

  • 4 of 5

The location is ideal and the condo is very nice and updated. It started to feel like home. It was within walking distance of all the little shops and good restaurants on Ali'i drive. Joanna was great to work with and very responsive. The only things we didn't like were the broken AC unit, broken dryer (it broke right before our stay so there wasn't time to get it fixed), and the bed wasn't comfortable. If it weren't for those 3 things, we would give this condo 5 stars no hesitation. Even now, we would definitely consider staying here again.

This is a downtown urban Hawaiian village like no other spot in the world. Travelers come from all across the globe especially to watch the Ironman competition which occurs directly in front of our building! It's a once in a lifetime experience just to watch. Our place is only a 15 car ride to a white sand secluded beach or a 2 hour ride to the majestic Volcano's National Park Kilauea. If you feel like staying home just walk across the street and order a cocktail while you watch the sunset at Huggo's on the Rocks. There is always too many choices and never enough time!
