About Jan Harrington

My husband and I love Hawaii and hope to retire there someday. We love the slower pace of the island and how diverse it is. We both love the outdoors and sports. We love to swim, bike, surf, hike, and play tennis among other things. The weather on the Big Island lets us enjoy all the sport we love all year long. We purchased our condo in 2005 and have enjoyed renting our condo out to family, friends and VRBO guest on a semi limited basis, usually to returning guests, so you will see that there is not a lot of availability. We have a 30 day minimum stay. Our guests are hand picked, and know up front that they will be coming to stay awhile and make our home their home. Our condo is in the Alii Lani complex that is very well maintained. The condo is situated across the street from the beach. There is a couple of spots you can walk to for viewing whales, dolphins or the amazing Kona sunset. So if you are looking for a place to call your second home for awhile our condo is just right for you.

Jan Harrington purchased this condo in 2005

Why Jan Harrington chose Kailua-Kona

We choose the location because we wanted to be in a quiet area of Kona, but still be centrally located. We are located on Alii drive, across the beach from the Ocean. Our condo has wonderful kona breezes and a view of the ocean and sunset off the lanai. We are only one mile from Kona town where all there restaurants we love are located. We are near great surfing and snorkeling beaches, and have found many hidden beaches over the years.

What makes this condo unique

We have recently re-decorated our condo, have new carpet, paint, window treatments, furnishings, art, counter tops. We have all new dishes, pots & pans. We have exceptional bedding and our beds have memory foam mattresses for a comfortable night sleep. We have AC and ceiling fans in every room. I have beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, ice chests for our guests to use. We are hoping that our guests will come back to our condo year after year, and make our condo their second home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have stayed at this beautiful condo 3 or 4 times. Each time was amazing. It is conveniently located by snorkel beach where I have often seen many sea turtles. It is also just a mile or so down the road to downtown Kona to shop and hit many great happy hours. The condo itself is very clean and like brand new with everything state of the art. I enjoy Kona much more than Wakiki and I have been to the Hawaiian islands at least 15 times. Anyone is lucky for the opportunity to stay at this beautiful condo. My husband feels the same & he is traveled the world many times being Force Master Chief of all Navy Seabees.

Absolutely Breathtaking Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything Jan and Michael said about their condo is 100% true. The pictures are exactly what you are renting. It was a beautiful place. We stayed here for the month of February 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Everything you need is here from the kitchen to the beach. Only used the air conditioning once during the entire month. Open the door and windows and you get a wonderful cross breeze that cools the unit down quickly. Location was close to downtown which we liked; restaurants, shops, etc. You could walk downtown if you wanted. Condo area was quiet and relaxing. If you want to explore the island, you will need to rent a car. We used Hawaii Discount Car Rental and found the best monthly rates. Jan's suggestions for grocery shopping, restaurants, beaches, snorkeling, etc. were most helpful. They truly created a hone away from home for you. We would highly recommend staying here.

Very nice condo with all amenities

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this condo for a month in January 2017. This was our 18th visit to Kona and it was one of the best condos that we have ever stayed at on the Big Island. We found it to be very clean and it had everything that we needed or wanted during our vacation. The kitchen was clean and well stocked with cooking utensils, dishes and spices. All of the appliances worked well and the fridge had an ice dispenser that came in handy. The living room and master bedroom was comfortable with a nice cross breeze and the ceiling fans provided enough cooling that we did not have to turn on the air conditioners. There were flat screen TV's in the living room (with PVR) and master bedroom. The master bedroom had a comfortble king size bed with sufficient closets and plenty of dresser drawers. Having two bathrooms with showers was a luxury. The lanai was quiet and perfect for the two of us to enjoy some beautiful mai tai sunsets. We were impressed with the amount of beach equipment including boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, umbrellas and ice chests that have generally been in short supply in other units we have rented in the past. A dedicated parking stall was also nice to come home to after a long drive around the island. As we prefer the beach, we only used one of the two pools in the complex during our trip. The pool and BBQ area was clean and very closely monitored by pool security. In the past we have never booked with VRBO and Jan immediately addressed our concerns to put us at ease. She was easy to communicate with and promptly responded to any concerns and questions. We will definitely be back! Mahalo and Aloha.

Warm Cosy Home Filled with Aloha

  • 5 of 5

Perfect base to call home for a long trip to the Big Island. Jan is a great communicator and provided a clean, tidy hale filled with everything needed for a perfect stay. Great energy about the place. Peek-a-boo view of the ocean from the lanai makes for lovely leisurely morning starts and perfect endings to big days. Furniture is comfy (crucial for a long stay), kitchen is PERFECT, bed is so comfortable that you want to sleep in every morning. And block NN is very quiet and private. Highly recommend Alii Lani and in particular the Harrington Condo to anyone wanting to feel like they're in a custom home away from home while on the islands. Mahalo nui loa, Jan! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review filled with Love and Aloha. I am glad that I was able to provide you with a Hale to suite your needs. Thank you for taking such great care of it. As you know we were able to stay at the condo right after you guys. Thank you for decorating it for Christmas! It was a very special gift to both Michael and I, it brought tears to my eyes. Please keep us in mind for future travel.. Warm Kona Regards, Jan and Michael

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo twice and both times it was an excellent value. The condo is well equipped and is nicely located in a quiet area. We walked to town (1 1/2 miles) and enjoyed the shops and the marketplace. The condo has a nice BBQ, pool and library area. The condo is on the second floor so is fairly secure. The beds are memory foam mattresses and are very comfortable. The owner, Jan, is very easy to talk to and very accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.

Awesome Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 1/2 months from December 2015 to February 2016. During that time we had an amazing stay at the condo! It had everything you could think of and more. We had guests 3 times during our stay and found the second bedroom and bathroom set up ideal. The unit was extremely well stocked from beach towels to kitchen items. The decor was a relaxing color combination and very well suited for the location. We used the pool a few times and found it to be wonderful! Many times I was the only one there. We'd definitely recommend Jan's unit to our friends.

Centrally located on the Big Island. Our condo is on the world famous ALii Drive, where Iron Man is held once a year. You can walk across the street to the ocean, walk to town, or take the shuttle from Alii Market place, located next to our condo that takes you up and down Alii Drive to the shops restaurants, pier, white sands beach, or to the world famous snorkel beach. Our condo is located in the Alii Lani condominium complex, an extremely well maintained condominium complex, beautifully landscaped with a gorgeous pool. It is 1.5 miles from Kona town. Our condo sits at the top of the hill in the complex, and has no road noise from either Alii Drive or Kuakini Highway. It is an upper unit that looks over an undeveloped field where you can enjoy a wide variety of native birds. Sunsets from the Lanai are simply too beautiful to capture on film, and you can catch a glimpse of the ocean and even see the cruise ships when they are in the bay. Inside the condo: All new beds, bedding, furniture, appliances, electronics, ceiling fans and air condition units. We have tried to anticipate our guests every need, the condo is supplied with beach gear for four including chairs, towels, umbrella, ice chests, snorkel gear, and more. Every small appliance and cooking device I could fit in the condo and it is all sparkling new. We have flat screen T.V's, and a DVD player with a large selection on DVD's to choose from. We have HD DVR, High speed internet, and a printer. This is our own home away from home. We truly love our condo and strive to share and bring the Aloha Spirit to each and every guest hoping that they too will make this their home away from home. Our condo is not suited for 'spring-break party seekers. In-fact, we have a strict 30 day minimum stay, and encourage our guests to stay even longer. So if you are interested in a second Ohana with a true feel of Hawaii Life our condo will be perfect for you. Hawaii Tax ID #W68986530-01
