If you want to be in Kailua with a great view, this condo will work for you! Access directly to Ali'i Drive. Well furnished and clean. 2 bathrooms are always better! Lani is good to hang out and watch the people and boats go by. Great pool not crowded with to many people. Breeze is nice as well. We would stay there again.

Fantastic Kona Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation in 601. We previously stayed in 601 many times before Larry and Connie bought it. They have updated the condo very nicely. We appreciated the furnishings and amenities. We ate almost all of our meals in the unit because the view is fantastic. The kitchen is nicely furnished. If we want to eat out, we love driving to Waimea and eating lunch at Meriman's.

The view from 601 is AMAZING! You couldn't ask for a better location. We loved hearing the ocean 24/7. We never got tired of the view or the sounds of the ocean. We look forward to planning other return visits to 601. We highly recommend 601!

Awesome view

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at the Kona Alii for several years in many different condos and this was by far the best condo we've stayed in. It had everything you need. And we loved to sit on the lanai and listen to the music coming from the Lava Java next door. We've already decided to book our next vacation in this condo.

Best vacation spot on Alii drive

  • 5 of 5

This place has both the awesome ocean view from the 6th floor balcony (the building is about 100 feet away from the ocean, we could watch reef fish through the water and have also seen dolphins jumping in the ocean) and the view on Alii drive with restaurants and live entertainment. The famous Lava Java restaurant is right under the balcony, we have enjoyed their nice live music in the mornings and in the evenings. It is located in the middle of downtown Kona and we could easily walk to the local market, shops and restaurants - no need to look for parking. We were lucky to watch the 4th of July fireworks from the balcony, the absolute front seats of the show. The boat with firework cannons was right in front of us, it was amazing. The apartment feels just like home. It had everything we needed and even more. The place is very well equipped with kitchenware and the bathroom stuff. The big screen TV and Bose sound system were a very nice touch. It is tastefully decorated with nice hawaiian art and comfortable furnishings. The property has a big pool which we enjoyed swimming in. We are very glad that we chose this place for our vacation and highly recommend it.
