About the property

Spotlessly clean, quiet condo steps from restaurants, shops and the ocean!

E Komo Mai - Welcome!

Amazingly quiet, this Tiki Treasure is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping just steps from the ocean. You'd never know that you were in the center of Kona with restaurants, shops and the ocean on your doorstep!

This 400 sq ft super clean studio is part of a totally non-smoking complex. (A small area at the edge of the property is designated for smoking). Value for money is excellent with many little extra treats provided, particularly for those staying a few days or more.

There is a small but efficient kitchenette, perfect for preparing breakfast and lunch. Although there is no stove in the unit, there are 2 large BBQs available in the pool area if you would like a to use them. They are cleaned daily and we provide great BBQ utensils.

A refrigerator, programmable full size coffee pot, microwave, toaster oven, blender and rice cooker are available for your use, along with all the basic kitchen utensils, plates, mugs bowls etc. Paper products, saran wrap, foil and a basic selection of condiments can also be found for your convenience.

The unit is well stocked for your beach adventures. Beach towels, new Boogie boards, Tommy Bahama back-pack chairs, cooler, beach bag, beach umbrella, sunblock and snorkel gear. Even some beach stuff for the kids!

New queen size bed, new pillows, bedding and luxury sheets make for a heavenly like sleep experience. There's also a day bed which will sleep one adult or could accommodate 2 small children sleeping top-to-toe :-) New porcelain 'hardwood' tile throughout makes for a cool, easy maintenance environment.

The shower and bathroom area are separate from the kitchen in this unit. The shower is newly remodeled, creating a spacious and clean shower with terrific shower, and great water pressure. Beautiful luxury towels are provided for your comfort.

A tropical style ceiling fan, AC with remote control and flat screen TV are also provided, along with books and magazines of local interest.

This is a corner unit on the second floor with a slightly larger Lanai than most, and a view of the pool, hot tub and beautifully maintained tropical grounds. Enjoy coffee or cocktails, breakfast or lunch and in the evenings perhaps dinner while enjoying the tiki torches!

Free On-Site parking is on a space available basis - usually fills up late in the afternoon, but additional parking is available across the street, and also next to Bubba Gump for a small daily fee (I believe it's still $3/day). If you are arriving in the evening or at night, we will help locate parking for you - just let us know :-) If you're not renting a car to begin your trip, there's a shuttle available from the airport for less than $30 (you must pre-book, so ask about the option). A cab should be around $40.

Free Internet access is available from the unit with a code which will be provided upon arrival. A coin operated laundry facility is available on site.

The majority of the units in our complex are privately owned and operated. Owners take great pride in their units so visitors, be they friends, family or paying guests can all enjoy to the same level. We want you to make yourselves at home and enjoy all the unit has to offer. Our unit is exceptionally quiet, no noise from Ali'i Drive and yet only steps from all the restaurants, shops - it is truly an oasis!

The condo is cleaned only upon departure. If you are staying for an extended period we can arrange for additional cleaning of the unit and linens at the guest's expense - just let us know.

Whether you're staying for a night, a week or a month we look forward to helping you discover the best the Island has to offer and can even help you arrange other short stays around the island if you'd like to spend some time exploring the Volcano - a must see, we believe, especially if your visit will be a once in a lifetime event!

We strive to provide a clean, comfortable environment for your stay and great value for money! Ours is a beautiful little gem which we believe you will fall in love with :-) We will do everything we can to make sure your vacation is special and filled with wonderful memories as you explore this incredible Island!

About Virginia Jensen

After visiting Hawaii for many years, it became the obvious destination when my husband and I met and decided to marry. The next step was a leap of faith; to sell everything and move to Hawaii and make it our home. It has been the best decision we have every made! Living and working locally led us to purchase this little slice of paradise, which we love sharing with visitors. Welcome!

Virginia Jensen purchased this condo in 2014

Why Virginia Jensen chose Kona Coast

The beautifully maintained, lush tropical grounds, friendly staff and its proximity to many activities, the ocean, restaurants and shops could not be beat. This cute condo is a very special place and has a wonderful feel to it! Hard to believe you are SO close to downtown.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy the tranquility of this tropical setting in our 400 sq ft condo steps from the ocean and the heart of Kona. Beautifully updated and enjoying a wonderful energy, make this Tiki Treasure your home away from home.

Amazingly quiet, tropical location with wonderful lanai. You'd never know you were in the center of town with restaurants and shops on your doorstep.

So much to see and do throughout the year to include the International Billfish Tournament, IRONMAN World Championship, Merrie Monarch Festival, Kona Coffee Festival and many, many more local festivals, fairs and activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Apartment is part of a very clean and safe environment. We found the flat well located and silent. You can reach every place in Kona easily. It was possible to book very short term and communication was friendly and professional. There is almost new snorkeling equipment and all new bodyboards, beach chairs and cooler.

Quaint Space to Relax

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I's stay at the Tiki Treasure was great. Nice little unit perfect for two people. Close to the shopping in Kona and right by all the good restaurants. Tucked away just enough so you feel like you are in a tropical rainforest. Overall, great experience!

Loved this place

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here prior to our Ragnar adventure. Great place, Virginia was so sweet and provided some as a welcome gift too. Really close to the beach front. I would love to come back and stay longer.

I can only say positive things about our stay. Virginia met us at the unit to make sure we checked in okay. We had all the snorkel gear we needed, as well as a beach bag and towels. My 13 year old wanted to sleep on the day bed instead of with me. That was perfect. The kitchen is super small, but we made do, considering that the bathroom and mirror space is more. Just an FYI............the hot and cold are reversed on the shower! Cold shower aside before I figured that one out! Beautiful place. I can't wait to stay here again!

This condo was perfect for the two of us, exactly as described.

The condo and grounds were clean and tidy and located centrally on Ali'i Drive. Close to the water and all the shops and restaurants, but set back enough to be quiet and relaxing.

The owners provided everything we needed and offered advice (very good advice too!) on the best places to eat etc.

We would certainly consider another stay here on our next visit to the big island.

All in all the perfect place to celebrate our 20th Anniversary.

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Virginia made our stay so homely by providing a fresh fruit bowl, local travel book and arrival gift. The room was perfect for what we were after and in a great location. The balcony over looked the tropical garden and pool in which we loved sharing with the nearby geckos. We were very thankful of the use of the snorkeling gear to explore the beautiful waters that were nearby. We would definitely stay here again. :)
