About Debbie

We live in western Canada. We have been coming to the Big Island for about 9 years and have loved renting in Alii Villas more than any where else in Kona. When the opportunity arose to buy there, we didn't hesitate. As long time vacation renters, we have a pretty good idea of what we wanted when we vacationed in Kona. We have done our very best to provide that for you. This apartment is a home away from the ocean in Paradise. We are very proud of our piece of Paradise and look forward to sharing it with you.

Debbie purchased this condo in 2013

Why Debbie chose Kailua-Kona

Alii Villas is a fantastic condo development. There is on site management. The grounds are beautiful and well taken care of. The pool is one of the nicest in Kailua-Kona. The people are so friendly here. The location couldn't be better- close to town, shopping, two farmer's markets, restaurants, beaches, snorkeling, diving, the Kailua-Kona pier and the airport. Our unit is located near the water with fantastic ocean views. It is one of the larger one bedroom units, with a big lanai and extra closets and storage areas. We are very familiar with Alii Villas as we have rented there ourselves for several years. We know how important it is to be able to sleep comfortably when away. We have provided really comfortable sleeping arrangements for 2-4 people. So......the unit has a Murphy Bed in it.....a real bed with a real mattress as well as the new bed in the one bedroom. As new owners, we are very excited to have you experience for yourselves how wonderful this piece of Paradise is.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location. The complex is located close to easy walk to town (10-15 minutes) and only 7 miles from the airport. The unit is close to the water with beautiful ocean and sunset views from the lanai. Finished with the traveler in mind, it is tastefully and comfortably furnished and well stocked with everything you will need to enjoy a most wonderful stay.

Back to our happy place!

  • 5 of 5

Once again enjoyed our second stay in #241 and will be back next year. This condo is a great value. In re-reading the previous reviews, manager's comments, and photographs we can think of nothing that hasn't been shown or said! It is just as presented. The owners are involved and take good care of their place. Thank you A. and B. for sharing your pleasant space!

Just like the pictures show, we will come back

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this apartment, it is just like the photos show. We had everything we needed. The bed was really comfortable. I enjoyed sitting on the lanai, watching the waves. The pool at the complex was great and the people there friendly and helpful. Nice and close to town. Don't know when we will get to Kona again but will stay here when we do.

Clean with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well appointed. It is not a 5 star hotel but a comfortable apartment and felt like it was our home away from home for the time we were in Hawaii.

I definitely would be back to this unit as it was quiet and the neighbors were friendly.

Hilo, hi

Terrible never staying here AGAIN

  • 1 of 5

Where should i begin. First of all the room we reserved was not available the night before we got there. Then on Friday at 8 :45 am renovations of jackhammering, pounding, sawing, going on below us at 12noon they started renovations above us. So i called the unit manager Debbie K. and she said i have another unit that i can move you to, so i was happy to accept the offer because i was on vacation and wanted to relax besides when you're on vacation you go out so the day we arrived we went out until 3 am. I am a full time uh student, mother, and i work full time so i was in vacation mode and wanted to just relax before school starts on monday 8/21. We ended up moving to the unit i originally booked. Which was not ready until 4:30. I texted Debbie and told her we wanted to be in the new unit soon because i have reservations at 6 and we still had to get ready. The place was about 20mins away so getting there on time was now rushing. Got to the new unit no soap, shampoo, we ended up using whatever i bought from home which wad very little and had to go buy later that night. There was a load of clothes still drying in the dryer towels and linen i left it on the floor in the room on the floor there was no soap for the dish washer so we left it. I texted Debbie to ask about compensation for all the crap we went through she said she would check on that and get back to me. Mind you Debbie asked me to clean the first unit before i left. NEVER STAYING HERE AGAIN NOT RECOMMENDING THIS PLACE EVER AGAIN HORRIBLE 2 THUMBS DOWN

Owner's Response: We, the owners of this condo are sorry for the experience you had. We have spoken with our property manager about your stay. We expect that everyone who comes to our lovely apartment enjoys the unit and has a wonderful, relaxing vacation. Construction can happen from time to time in any apartment complex. There are strict rules in Alii Villas as to when construction can and cannot take place......set up to inconvenience others as little as possible. In staying in a condo apartment , unlike a hotel, toiletries are not usually provided . Our unit is stocked with toilet paper and paper towels. To enable you to return to the unit as quickly as you requested, the clean towels were left in the dryer. Our manager will continue to communicate with you. Your experience is not typical of our vacation renters. Alii Villas is one of the best managed condos in Kona and we will further communicate with the condo management to ensure that the condo rules are being followed.

Great location, very nice condo

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the Alii Villas. The condo was very cleaned and really good equipped. Really good lanai semi facing the ocean. On the down side, the cable tv was glitchy most of the evenings and the drapes in the bedroom were not dark at all so we would wake up at 5 am... other than that, top place!

Owner's Response: Adiana, we are very glad that you enjoyed your stay in Kona in our lovely apartment in beautiful Kona. We strive hard to make our apartment the perfect place and appreciate your feedback. This is the first time we have had a problem with the cable TV. Indeed, it was upgraded just a few months ago to provide more channels and HD reception. We will follow up with the cable provider to prevent this from happening again. And we will also look at purchasing some extra blinds for the bedroom. We want to keep our home away from home, as you put it.......a top place!
