Great Location

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in October. The studio was part of an old building but clean and felt uncluttered and spacious. It had everything we needed including beach towels. There is no wifi in the studio, but we got it in the main foyer by the office. It was great to walk out the gate and be so near to the shops and restaurants. We especially liked Lava Java. The bed was large and comfortable. There is no oven or cooktop which didn't matter - we could cook what we wanted in the electric frypan and microwave. Didn't want to cook much anyway! The air conditioner was noisy but we coped with this as we were out a lot and we didn't have it on all the time while we were in. There was traffic noise with the doors open but it was surprisingly quiet when the doors were shut. I would recommend to others who want to be in central Kona and don't want to spend a fortune on accommodation.

Cute great location but needs to be cleaned badly

  • 2 of 5

It is in a great location however the studio is it need of deep cleaning The nice tile floor was soooo dirty it was vacuumed but had not had a mop used on it forever. Our feet were black and sticky just walking to the tv. We usually take our shoes off when inside but we had to keep then on always when inside. We should have called house keeping but didn't want to complain as we never do Coffee cups in the small kitchen area were dirty with lipstick marks on them and the shower is just plain old So I think the owner has a great spot they just need to know that the cleaning service needs to improve their standards and care no need for a dirty cute place like that Louise Nixon FYI bed was very comfy

Owner's Response: I was in Kona the week of your arrival and I helped the cleaning lady to clean the place. I put in a new couch and we touched up the walls and scrubbed the floor. The morning of your arrival I went over the floor again. If there was anything sticky it was from all the pinesol I used. I know that floor was not dirty. I even left a beautiful bouquet of flowers for your anniversary. Why would you not call us and let us correct any issues? You even said that you thought about calling housekeeping but you didn't want to complain --- but yet you put a bad review on the internet! I'm sorry you weren't happy. And I'm sad you didn't give us a chance to change anything you were unhappy about.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

A nice apartment that is very well located.

The unit is across the road from the ocean and you can sit in the garden admiring the beach as cars and people go by.

Room was nice and clean with a very comfortable bed. The combo kitchenette/bathroom is great to have allowing to make basic meals.

Walking out the door, in either direction you have access to plenty of restaurants, cafes and bar options.

The major stores are only 5 min drive away.

The complex has a pool, spa, bbq and laundrette available.

Would've liked to have a lockable garden security door so we could leave the window open at night. The AC was a bit noisy as well.

Also make sure you get back at a reasonable hour as parking spots are at a premium.

Great little apartment - has everything you need for a stay in Kona. Location is awesome - view of the ocean from the balcony and right in the middle of Kona.

A Sweet Spot with View of Ocean

  • 5 of 5

Incredible location with view of ocean and walking distance to many eateries and a variety of shopping. We loved hearing the waves roll at night and the pool, hot tub and grill were hardly ever populated, so I often had the pool to myself for night swimming. The grounds are lush with greenery and it's right next to the farmer's market. Oh, I'm going to miss the yummy apple bananas as well. The coffee maker, hot plate and fridge allowed us to only eat out once a day, so we could spend more money swimming with dolphins and manta rays!

Mahalo! Would love to stay here again. (:

Nice, clean and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Great location. The shops and Alii drive are right outside the door. You can barely hear the waves crashing at night.

Nice decor. The place feels more like a friend's apartment and less like a hotel. Plenty of amenities are included, which is great because eating out every meal can add up.

The staff at the Islander Inn complex is very friendly. This is a great alternative to a resort or a budget hotel.
