About Monica Gelien

I love updating and remodeling homes and this wonderful studio has received a lot of attention. It is a cute, clean, beautifully decorated and a wonderful place to stay while visiting the Big Island. I live nearby, so can help you with your travel plans, questions, etc. I have managed vacation rental properties for about 10 years and know how to make guests feel comfortable. I'm constantly upgrading and adding new things to the condo.

Monica Gelien purchased this condo in 2014

Why Monica Gelien chose Kailua-Kona

I love how close the condo is to town and the pier. You can walk to everything in town and you would not need to rent a car. There are plenty of tours you could book and I can also steer you in the right direction as well.

What makes this condo unique

Pool, barbeque, lanai, privacy, Upgraded, memory foam mattress, proximity to Pier and downtown. Walk to the pier, downtown, Big Island Grill, Kona Brewing, Krua Thai, and many other amenities in Kona! :-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Monica was fantastic. Communicative yet respecting your privacy. Don't miss the opportunity to go stand-up paddle boarding and snorkeling - a highlight!

Condo had everything I needed with great location

  • 5 of 5

Truly one block from the Kailua pier, and an easy walk to all stores and restaurants. Condo was clean, spacious, fully equipped, and quiet, with nice pool. Restaurants recommended by Monica were all good choices. I would definitely stay there again. Condo puts you right in the heart of all the Kailua Kona action.

A Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

The owner of this unit was very easy to work with and was quick to respond to all of our questions before we got there and while we were there. The unit itself was nice but could have used a nice couch or easy chairs to sit on instead of the wooden bench. The view from the lanai is of the pool so if you want a city or ocean view this is not the unit for you. It is on the second floor so there are a few stair to take to get to the unit. We did have an ant problem but Monica was quick at dealing with the problem. You will need a car as it is bit of a walk to get to Downtown Kona.

Owner's Response: Sherri and her husband were respectful of the rules. I don't know what route they took to get downtown, but it is certainly within a block of downtown and takes about 3 minutes. I've never had an ant problem, except with these folks. I always ask that tenants use containers or ziplock bags for open items. This studio is wonderful with a view of the newly remodeled pool and a 3-5 minute walk to downtown.

I really enjoyed my stay here, the location is great and would be hard to beat, plus the host was very nice and helpful while I stayed here. I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Kona!
