IRONMAN? WATCH FROM THE CONDO LANAI. WALK TO START IN MINUTES! ( I have several IRONMAN UNITS)

Budget? OCEAN FRONT DOWNTOWN Romantic, Quaint, Tropical & Adventure.

~PRIVATELY OWNED in the heart of Downtown Kona. (Between Huggo's Restaurant & Bubba Gump's.) The Grounds are Beautiful Pristine & Tropical with Tiki Torches lit every night for added Hawaiiana Ambiance.

WALK to everything: Beach, Shopping, Dining, Church, Luau, Grocery, Farmer's Market for local fruit & veggies, etc. You really don't need a car.

(but arrange ahead for cab from airport. approx $40)

There is a shuttle that goes up and down town Ali'i Dr. as well.

FREE PRIVATE WiFi IN ROOM! Wireless & modem. This is an added bonus to our clients to make your stay easy!

Peaceful & Romantic...

CLEAN, NEAT & Charming. Newly Renovated & New Furniture.

~Little kitchenette with 18' x 30' small fridge for basic needs with many small appliances for at home cooking. ~Grounds have BBQ, Pool, Hot Tub.

~Queen bed very comfortable. Also a sofa pull out bed if you don't want to share bed.

~Linens & Bath Towels provided. Cool ocean breezes in this unit. A/C if need.

We love to listen to the ocean right outside. Having dinner on our private lanai watching the sunset into the ocean is a must do. Watch for the 'green flash!'

Once you come here you'll never want to go anywhere else.

Free Onsite Parking is limited first come basis. Security is strict & you need Parking Pass from Security.

24 Hour on-site Security and Cameras.

~On site Coin Washer/Dryers.

This Unit is on THIRD FLOOR. There is NO ELEVATOR. Great for security but pack your suitcase light! Forget something? No worries. Walmart & Ross, etc. close by.

THIS IS A NON-SMOKING UNIT AND SMOKE FREE COMPLEX. It is beyond my control & Security will fine for smoking on grounds or unit. NO PETS OF ANY KIND.

~~My unit is individually owned and operated as some are. Unfortunately some of the other units are not as nice as this unit & can give the Kona Islander a bad reputation. We take great pride in our unit to meet our needs & standards & the needs & standards of our guests.~~

About Gigi Polk

We put our heart & soul into our Hawaii Unit. It was remodeled with Hawaiiana Design. We retired and moved to Hawaii for the winters. I came from Buffalo, NY & Cape Cod, MA. My husband from Northern CA. This is a golfers paradise (ask my husband... wink wink ;p) as well as a beach tropical dream. We split our time in Kona & Cape Cod. We rent it out when we are not here. Therefore you will find it CLEAN & NEAT with many small appliances for your needs. Although it is small and the kitchen smaller, it meets our needs. Having the Ocean waves right out the door is what makes it so special. Some of these units at The Islander are not up to par as is ours. We take pride in our unit and reputation. The grounds on the other hand are unbelievably gorgeous and tropical Hawaiiana and well kept. Banana trees onsite and occasionally in lobby you can get some local fruit from the trees! We do BBQ very often and meet people at the pool, hot tub area and it is so much fun. It is quiet and security is amazing. 10 CUBIC FRIDGE! fridge with freezer. (see pics)

FRIDGE ENVY!!

Gigi Polk purchased this studio in 2011

Why Gigi Polk chose Kailua-Kona

Kona is laid back. Not the busy hustle and bustle of the city. It has wonderful restaurants and beaches all over the place. It is hard to decide which one to go to.

IRONMAN??!!! WATCH FROM THE ROOM LANAI!!! WALK TO START IN MINUTES!!

What makes this studio unique

Being Downtown has it's advantages. You can walk to everything & work off all of the great food. Parking is limited so it's great to not even deal with a car. I have a moped for fun. You can rent them downtown too.

Visit Black, White & Green Sand beaches on Big Island Hawaii. Walk to a Luau at King Kamehameha Hotel.

We had a good time in Kona despite the rain. Went snorkeling and to the volcano and all the way to Hilo. We could walk all through town and the farmers market was interesting. Thanks!😎?

well maintained grounds, nice clean pool...parking can be a problem..great location..

Owner's Response: Always a pleasure to host you Dennis year after year! Being centrally located downtown oftentimes you don't need a car. I'm finding Uber to be everyone's new best friend. Save money on car rentals too. Vacationing in high season as you are I'm sure has it's parking challenges at times. We tend to go out early in the day and come back get our spot and then just spend the day walking around town, walking to dinner, go to the beach locally or lounging at the oasis of the pool and hot tub on grounds. Hope to see you again next year! Warmest Aloha, Gigi

Located in the Heart of Downtown Kona. Amazing Snorkeling with exotic fish. Many local Adventure Opportunities & Entertainment. Luau within walking distance. Grab some local flyers in the kiosk as you get off the plane!

At night from the lanai there are flood lights illuminating the waves... so neat!

This is the island with the Actively flowing Volcano! A wonder of the world.

Walk to everything! It's ALL here.
