Welcome to our lovely remodeled ground level condominium, Unit B 6, in the charming Kona Isle oceanfront resort. Kona Isle B6 has been completely remodeled and feels airy and spacious because of its updated open kitchen. Since Kona Isle does not have elevators, the ground level location offers you convenience and easy access to the resort's private sandy beach area.
The open kitchen features granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and updated wood cabinets. This is one of the few units in the complex equipped with a dishwasher, washer/dryer and a full size oven, stove, built-in microwave and refrigerator. We love to cook and have made sure the kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare a meal at home.
The condo has wood floors throughout the living areas and bedroom and a tile floor in the bathroom. Comfort is a top priority, and you?ll enjoy an oversized sofa and chair and a luxurious California King mattress.
The ground level location provides an effortless transition from indoors to outdoors, and you'll find it's easy to take advantage of the beautiful grounds. Just step off the lanai to carry your drinks and food to the oceanfront pool, beach, dining and BBQ areas. There?s no need to haul luggage and groceries up and down stairs as Kona Isle does not have elevators.
New in 2013: A whisper-quiet drawer dishwasher, a combination washer dryer laundry unit, ceiling fans in living room and bedroom, lanai bistro set, dining chairs and LED lighting in the kitchen and bath.
New in 2014: Tile floor and fresh paint in the bathroom.
New in 2015: New lanai furniture, new hot water heater and new AC.
New 2017: Updated bathroom, new solid counter vanity with cabinets and draws, new sink, faucet, mirror and added shelf for storage. Fresh paint in living room and bathroom. New curtains, towels and bath mats.
You'll enjoy spending time on the furnished lanai with views of the beautiful Kona Isle grounds, the blue Pacific Ocean and the sound of crashing waves. Inside you'll stay comfortable with ocean breezes and ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom. Or, if you prefer, the condo has an air conditioner located in the living area.
While our unit has a true Hawaiian atmosphere, you'll also find all the modern features, including a flat panel television with cable, stereo with Bluetooth connection and high speed wireless internet available throughout Kona Isle.
Kona Isle features a true Hawaiian feel with manicured lawns that lead to a private oceanfront sandy beach area with lounge chairs, picnic tables and three gas grills. It's the perfect place to lounge during the day and to enjoy sunset drinks and dinner. The resort also has an oceanfront heated pool with new patio furniture and is adjacent to an ocean-fed saltwater pool.
Kona Isle offers a great location for exploring all that the Big Island offers. The resort is just over a mile from Kailua-Kona and its variety of shops, restaurants, farmer's market, entertainment and historic sites. Adventure and activities are also close by. Choose from relaxing at nearby beaches, snorkeling, golfing, sightseeing and more. And when you return, you'll have a convenient assigned parking space waiting for you.
Our love affair with Kona Isle started a decade ago. After years of trying and waiting, we got to have a piece of paradise. We visit our condo four times a year and with each trip we make updates and ensure it's fresh and well maintained. We are excited to share our condo with you, and we hope you will enjoy a truly Hawaiian getaway!

Pool / Spa
We were pleasantly surprised to find this small, but nicely appointed apartment in Kona! My husband and I unexpectedly had time off and planned a last minute trip to the Big Island. This was a great place to stay for a couple. We felt very safe at this apartment. The grounds were beautiful. It's a few steps from a small beach (but no access to the ocean). We saw a few spectacular sunsets here. The apartment itself was updated. It was nice to have a full kitchen as we did not want to eat out daily. We had never used a washer/dryer combo so that was interesting. It took about 4 hours to do a full load so we did our laundry at bedtime. We couldn't figure out how to wash and not dry our clothes? We appreciated the instructions on how to use (in the cabinet above). We appreciated the "extras" like large shampoo/conditioner, paper towels, TP, laundry detergent, dish soap etc. We only had to purchase an extra bar of soap toward the end of our week. There is AC in the unit, but the bedroom which is located in the back does not get as cool as the living room. There are ceiling fans and a large floor fan in the closet, so we were comfortable. The bed and pillows were super comfortable! The bathroom was clean, however the tub needed to be re-caulked big time! There were beach towels, which we used, in addition to two beach chairs in one of the closets. Unfortunately one of the chairs was broken, so we left a message, but did not hear back from anyone, so we just used one chair. It wasn't a big deal - just an FYI. An addition of an umbrella would be nice! There is a large cooler that you can use (in the bedroom closet), which was a very nice surprise. There are books about Hawaii on the shelves in the bedroom. I'd recommend maybe creating a binder of "places to see" or "restaurants to go to" just to make this place even better! Otherwise, we were very happy. We were close to downtown, went to Safeway for groceries down the street, and there was a gas station a few minutes away. We didn't use the pool or lay at the small beach on the property because there were a lot of ants/mosquitoes for some reason, but there are fantastic beaches with access to the ocean not far from the apartment! The price was great for us. We had a parking space for the rental car. We got so-so WiFi in the apartment, but didn't have much service on the island in general. Overall, it ended up being the perfect place for us to stay while we explored the island. Thank you!

Pretty much as described
Nice quiet community and a friendly environment. Enjoyed visiting with others in the BBQ area. The unit was warm at night, the AC didn't reach the bedroom very well.

Exactly as pictured and loved it. Kitchen had every conceivable need, bed was awesome.
It was just steps to a gorgeous, sunset beach. Grills and tables at sunset on the beach were better than restaurants. Everyone gathers for drinks and dinner, very friendly group. Would definitely stay here again.

Quiet, clean, peaceful ocean setting
It was lovely . Everything was as represented. Everything was nice and clean and worked. No problems at all. At 48 yrs old, we were the youngest people there. It was very quiet.

Beautiful Condo and Magical Beach
Love this condo, grounds and private beach area. Not many condos in Kona with this kind of access. Ground level sure makes everything even more accessible.
We are so glad to hear you enjoyed yourself and the condo. We would love to have you back as our guest in the future, please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
This was our second time to the Big Island and our second time staying at the Kona Isle. (First time for this unit though). We had a marvellous time. The condo was lovely and it was nice being on the main floor. It was so handy to be able to just walk out the door and be at the pool or BBQ area in a few steps. Great if you have issues with stairs. We love everything about this complex - the people that live there year round, the guests that come, the manager (he's great), the pool, the BBQ area - all of it. In this condo, it was great to have a washer/dryer unit there. I wasn't a big fan of the machine itself - 4 hours to do a load of laundry seemed quite excessive - but I was glad to have it there. The bed was very comfy but a bit too soft for my husband and I. But those are minor things. We will be back to Kona and would certainly stay in this unit again. Thanks for the great accommodations.
