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 learning 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!

Perfect location to see all that Kona has to offer!
This condo was the perfect location to experience Kailua Kona. But first let me say we are from North Carolina and had to leave right as Hurricane Florence was hitting. It took a bit of effort and a lot of frustration but we were finally able to get there and JoJo was very understanding and accommodating as we were a day late on our arrival. The condo is well appointed with everything you could need including beach towels, a cooler and chairs for the beach! The location is within easy walking distance of restaurants and stores. Both Kona Brewing and Target are just a short drive. There are many beaches to chose from within an easy driving distance as well. If you don’t mind driving over a rough lava field and a short 10-15 minute walk, we found a sweet almost private beach area at Mahai'ula beach just north of the airport. There are shade trees along the beach and we got to swim with two sea turtles! Perfection! We will definitely stay here again should we find ourselves on The Big Island! Mahalo!
Great location, amenities, and stay
From the time we opened the door we knew this would be the ideal location for our trip to Kailua Kona. The condo is nicely appointed with all that you would ever need. We loved the large beach towels and cooler for your days at the beach. The location is close to all the elements of the town, the shops, ABC store, the farmers market type thing on Alii drive, and we walked to dinner most nights - the exception being when we went to Kona Brewing Company. We tend to have active vacations, hiking down to Kealakekua Bay, the Waipio Valley, and days at the beaches. That said this is all you ever could need or want for this type of stay. We will definitely be looking to stay here again on our next trip to the big island.
Location! Location! Location! We stayed at JoJo’s property the first week of June and loved it. The location was key…we were able to walk to all the restaurants or jump in the car to go to the beach. The condo was super clean and loved the décor. We spent the mornings on the lanai listening to the ocean. JoJo provided all the beach equipment needed. She was very responsive to all of our questions.
In the centre of everything
Great condo, just like the photos. right in the centre of everything, restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk. Great to have a bit of a view of the ocean and sunset from the lanai. Would stay again if I could!
Best Place to Stay in Kona
Kailua Kona is by far our favorite place in the Islands, and we were able to make it even better by staying at this property. We have been staying at Kona Alii off and on for almost 20 years, and this was the nicest and best equipped unit we've had the opportunity to stay in.
We contacted the owner regarding a couple of issues, and the response time was almost immediate letting us know that they were on it and it would be handled.
Complete and well equipped kitchen made those meals at the unit seem like you were working at home. Beach towels, noodles, beach chairs are all you need to make your trip to the beach easy and enjoyable.
WI-FI which worked great and a printer to print off your airline boarding passes was a very nice touch.
All in all you couldn't go wrong staying with these owners.
Wonderful location to stay in Kona :) with lots of amenities *****
We absolutely loved our stay at Kona Alii. The condo was spacious and close to everything such as the Farmers' Market, fabulous restaurants, and of course, Kona Brewery. The location is ideal for your home base and we wished we booked for a longer stay. The condo was exactly as described. The host Jojo and Donald were super friendly, responsive, and provided a lot of tips on where to go to shop and eat. The kitchen was fully stocked if you wanted to cook your own meals. Would highly recommend. Hope to book again soon. Thank you for your kind hospitality!!!
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!
