About Arnold and Laura

High school sweethearts who have been visiting the Hawaiian Islands for 41 years. Kona, and specifically Alii Villas, for 7 years.

We live in a small town in Oregon where it is beautiful, but cold and rainy allot of the year.

The Big Island has given us the best of both worlds.

Arnold and Laura purchased this condo in 2015

Why Arnold and Laura chose Kona Coast

We fell in love with this complex the first time we visited, it truly felt like paradise.

Maui and Kauai were beautiful but The Big Island has felt like home for us since day one.

Never even imagining we would purchase a condo here ,we kept returning and tried to do something different each time.

The warmth of the local people,and the true Aloha spirit we felt the minute we got off the plane, made us want more.

Our parents encouraged us to work hard in life and enjoy the fruits of our labors.

We finally fulfilled our dreams, and purchased our unit in February 2015.

What makes this condo unique

Private and quiet, no walls shared with other units. Top floor unit with comfortable breezes at night. Courteous and helpful staff who maintains a beautifully kept facility.

WiFi added !

Hopefully we will meet someday!! Mahalo, Laura and Arnold

Well appointed condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly what I needed and everything that was promised. It is close enough to the 'downtown' that you can walk, but far enough to be a quiet getaway when I wanted to get away from the (Ironman) festivities. This was more of a work trip for me than a vacation, so I wasn't able to take advantage of the pool or other fun things to do around Kona, but everything in the condo made my stay comfy and productive. The wifi works well and setting up my laptop out on the patio made up for the fact that I still had to do work.

The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals and I made use of the blender everyday for smoothies. Having a washer and dryer inside the condo made it easier for me to pack light and just wash clothes half way through my stay.

My only minor complaint might be that it is on the 3rd floor and with all my camera equipment the loading and unloading up three flights... let's just say, I got my workouts in each day. Again, not a real 'complaint'.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gani for your nice review ! We love the the beautiful view the 3rd floor gives us, with cooling trade winds at night and the soothing rustle of the palm trees, ( of course we aren't hauling gear up and down). As seniors we look at it as exercise so we can justify an occasional Lava Java cinnamon roll in the morning :) Maybe you can visit again with your wife and truly enjoy all there is to see and do on The Big Island, feel the Aloha spirit it offers and capture some gorgeous sunsets. Sincerely, Laura and Arnold

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Where we stayed had very nicely kept grounds and staff were very helpful with any questions we may have had during our 2 week stay.The Condo has a very well decorated and cozy feeling as you walk through the front door. It is very well equipped for the use by guests. A very good view of the ocean from the lanai. The island and condo very much provided the comfort and the R&R we were looking for.Thanks again Arnold and Laura

for the use of your paradise. We give you a 5 star !

Laura and Arnold's condo at Alii Villas was definitely our"home-away-from-home" during our three-week stay in Kailua-Kona. The condo kitchen was laid out very conveniently with lots of counter space. The owners supplied much more in the way of cooking ingredients (spices, oil, sugar, salt and pepper, etc.) than we have had in other condos in Hawaii. There was every pot, pan and utensil you could ever want, including a rice cooker that we used a lot! They provided lots of paper products too, so much that we didn't run out of anything!

The living room is spacious and there is a lovely breeze that comes from the large lanai off it. From the lanai we could see the ocean and pool. We enjoyed both very much. Additionally, the landscaping around the complex was lovely. There are tons of flowering plants as well as every type of palm imaginable. We especially enjoyed the fan palms close by our lanai.

There were plenty of fans throughout the condo, although we almost always had a breeze to keep things cool. There is a jalousied window by the bed where the air comes into the room to keep it comfortable for sleeping. I loved hearing the doves and other birds in the morning. They are the sounds of Hawaii for me.

The location of Alii Villas is perfect for walking into town. It is about 10 minutes to Lava Java and then another 15 or so to the pier at the end of town. There is usually lots of free parking by the Coconut Grove (behind Bongo Ben's). Of course there are lots of places to have coffee and eat. We always enjoy the Kona Inn happy hour from 2-5 daily. The appetizers are a good size and the Mai-Tais are delicious. We did a lot of snorkeling at several beaches, as well as doing the Fairwind cruise to Captain Cook Cove. It is not inexpensive but they provide lots of food and beverages, for both breakfast and lunch, as well as all the equipment and information needed for a good snorkel of the area.

All-in-all we enjoyed ourselves so much we cannot wait to return!

Great place to spend some time in Hawaii!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was super comfortable. It did not have that sterile feel of hotel rooms but a place that is loved and taken care of by real people. Sounds silly but it was such a comfy place to be, always felt great coming back. The condo is very very well stocked. More so than I expected. All the kitchen utensils needed, and condiments/spices left over from other guests. We used and left some things but it was really nice not to have to purchase all the condiments if you wanted to make some burgers or spice some tuna. Everything you could need was there including beach gear. (minus some boody boards). Laura I dealt with primarily, and she was fantastic. Responded to emails extremely fast, and very well informed. Took her time just to be friendly and gave us lots of great ideas on where to go and what to see which was never even asked for but made dealing with her very positive. All in all, fantastic people, fantastic condo and an amazing island to spend a holiday. Would recommend. Also, to list all the activities and things to see here is way too long! They left a fantastic guide book left on the counter that is used across the island. Use it, see everything!

Owner's Response: Reviews are so important when renting a condo,we had always read reviews before renting ourselves on the Big Island. Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to write us this wonderful review. We love that you took some suggestions of fun things to do during your visit. Some of these suggestions were recommended to us! There is nothing like listening to LT Smooth at Huggos on the rocks, toes in the sand, watching the sunset, truly breathtaking!

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful condo. We couldn't have asked for a better location or better couple to rent from. Laura was so attentive....answered every queation, shared great spots to go eat and visit and even accomodated a late check out for us which was soooo nice given our very late flight! Nice walk to town for a quick exercise before I parked my butt at the beach! Rent here....great deal for the big island!!
