Property description

Tastefully designed and newly upgraded reflecting quality and comfort, this top floor cozy condo is nestled among the tropical treetops, with private lanai and peek-a-boo views of the ocean. My wife and I affectionately call our unit #322 the Kona Dove. It is, in our opinion, one of the more desirable units in the Kona Islander Inn complex; ours is a top-floor unit, away from the traffic noise of Alii drive and Kuakini Highway, but close enough to hear soothing surf sounds at night. Our west-and-south facing lanai has an extra-expansive and open view since our unit is also a corner unit. And my wife Therese is an artist and designer- we keep our unit lovely and clean inside!

Car: Not Necessary

Kailua-Kona has the sunshine! The weather on this side of the Big Island can best be described as eternal springtime. Quite simply, it's almost always warm and wonderful. Kona has the calmest, clearest water in the state. This side also has the best beaches on the island, with some, such as Hapuna, consistently rated in the top five in the United States. All this adds up to a traveler's delight, one of the reasons that the Kona side has such a high visitor repeat ratio. Our personal favorite local activities in the area include snorkeling, Farmer's Market, local shopping, Kahaluu Beach Park, Kealakekua Bay, (Captain Cook Monument), Place of Refuge, Kua Bay, whale and dolphin watching, and Kona coffee tasting at local mills.
