About the property

Oceanview 1 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, newly renovated, walk to everything!

Aloha Spirit at Kona Alii can offer you a private and quiet home base from the adventures of vacationing on the active Big Island and all it has to offer.

For Ironman triathletes & spectators this condo is 1 mile from the race start. The bike course is in your 'backyard' on Kuakini and the 'front yard' is ON THE RUN COURSE. It is 400 yrds from the Ironman Expo and is immediately next door to the famous Lava Java cafe. This is a perfect place for spectators to use as a home base and shelter during the long race day.

Lovely wood-look tile flooring is the medium for the master bedroom, dining and living room. The kitchen and foyer(entrance) is stunning black slate with a matching back splash in the kitchen which sits upon a beautiful granite counter top and eating bar. Over the eating bar hangs two hand-blown Italian pendants with matching tile within the back splash. Cabinets are custom designed maple with decorative black crown molding and added detailing with black metal hardware. The kitchen appliances are Whirlpool Gold and add to the functional beauty of this kitchen.

The dining area features a large table that can seat 6 and is expandable to 8 should you choose to entertain.

The living room is fully equipped with a large 55 inch flat screen LG LED TV, basic cable programming, Apple TV and a DVD player. In 2012 we added a beautiful Murphy Bed unit that folds down easily without having to move the sofa in front of it. It opens up to a queen sized bed with comfortable firm mattress, not a sofa bed mattress. On either side of the murphy bed you will find matching armoires complete with rods, shelves and drawers and slide-away nightstands. This addition has made a comfortable solution to accommodate an additional couple of guests and their belongings, making the living room comfortable, relaxing and versatile. (Sometimes we choose the living room as our room, using the armoires and all, so when our young kids go to bed or nap in the bedroom, we are free to use the common space without disturbing them, then convert it into our sleep area, listening to the crashing waves as we drift off to sleep.)

The application on the ceiling is a burnished tri-venetian plaster and adds to the elegance of the unit!

The master bedroom has cherry wood cabinetry setting off the ensuite bathroom and a white porcelain vessel sink beautifully perched on glistening granite adding to its elegance.

The main bath has a clear glass shower enclosure surrounding its decorative slate tiling. The cabinetry is maple and also has a mounted white porcelain vessel sink on lovely granite as well. It is there you will find the (2012) front loading high efficiency washer and dryer for your convenience.

Enjoy the beautiful Pacific and ocean breeze off the large lanai while you watch Ali'i Drive activity, dolphins playing, Ironman triathletes running (it's right ON the run course!) outriggers passing by all while listening to the tranquil rhythms of the ocean.

About Jasmene

We were born and raised in coastal Orange County, CA, where we currently reside with our two young children. Our family has native Hawaiian roots and we have come to love the Big Island through Ironman Competition and training. Chad has completed 9 Ironman qualifiers that earned him slots at 7 Hawaii Ironman World Championships between 2004-2012, for a total of 16 Ironmans with average finishing times of 9 hours and 40 minutes. Our family loves all things Hawaii and Ironman!

Jasmene purchased this condo in 2011

Why Jasmene chose Kailua-Kona

With native hawaiian ancestors on one side and a 7-time Hawaii Ironman competitor and finisher on the other, it only made sense to land our family's vacation home in Kona.

Kona Alii is the PERFECT place to stay in Kona Town! It's in the middle of it all, but is still oceanfront & quiet It has the amenities of a larger complex (pool, BBQ, security/privacy gates, private parking) yet it's quiet, owner occupied and very well maintained.

Our unit sits off of busy Alii drive yet you can still enjoy the ocean views and ocean breeze, without the noise of traffic. Our unit was completely gutted and remodeled in 2009 with brand new EVERYTHING. We took ownership in 2011 for our personal use and decided to share our piece of paradise for others to enjoy by listing it as a vacation rental in 2013.

We LOVE Kona Alii Condos and all that it offers up for a perfect vacation, we hope you do as well!

Great unit in the heart of Kailua

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location of this unit, just steps from the ocean and all that Ali'i Street has to offer (restaurants, shopping, Farmers Market, etc). The unit includes lots of beach items for use. Kitchen is nice for in-room meals. We didn't find that lack of air conditioning was an issue at all, slept with the windows and balcony doors open and had a great breeze to cool the unit. The large TV and included Apple TV for stay-in evenings was very nice. Other tenants in the complex were very friendly and inviting. The maintenance man Tom quickly remedied a few things that popped up during the 10 day stay, and he readily suggested some white sand beaches to visit north of the airport. Overall, a very nice 10 day stay on our first Big Island visit. Jasmene is great to work with. Make sure you have your check-in instructions with door codes, etc before you get there, it could be difficult to figure out otherwise.

Great location, beautiful condo. Perfect home base for exploring the big island

  • 5 of 5

The location of condo is very centrally located. Short walking distance to restaurants and shopping and no worry about finding parking. Condo is well equipped with kitchen supplies, bedding , towels, beach equipment and tons of storage for clothing. It is a home away from home. It doesn’t have air conditioning but has numerous ceiling fans and good ventilation to keep condo nice and cool for sleeping. The only negative we found was some noise early in am( like 5 am) when garbage was picked up but if u closed the bedroom window it was a lot quieter. Would definitely stay here again when we come back to the big island. Thank you for sharing your condo with us Jasmene

Great location!! Great condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to the big Island from NJ. Unfortunately, our flight was delayed overnight and they lost our bag. The property was beautiful and had the extra items needed until our luggage was returned. Lovely stay and cannot not wait to come back!!!

Redondo Beach Ca

Beautiful condo right off of Kailua-Kona beach

  • 5 of 5

We were really pleased with this location. You are right off of the beach Once you walk out the front of the Condominium complex you could head either way up the street to get breakfast, find an ABC store or explore some of the old churches. It is also within walking distance from many stores and restaurants. The condominium itself is newly renovated inside with a beautiful kitchen, a very comfy Murphy bed and an awesome balcony to relax on while listening to the sounds of the waves and the smell of the tropical air. Inside was clean and welcoming. It was very quiet and peaceful. The owner gave us very clear instructions for check in and check out and was quick to respond. Would definitely recommend!
