Slice of Aloha in Downtown Kona

Apartment, Entire place - Kailua Kona, United States

ID 38081



Fantastic location in the heart of downtown Kailua-Kona walk to everything! A 400 sq ft studio condo in the heart of downtown Kailua-Kona. The studio is a very clean no frills budget accomodation with a lot of aloha! The condo sits off of Alii Drive between Lava Java and Bubba Gumps. The property has a pool, jacuzzi, BBQ and beautiful grounds that represent the best of Hawaii. Unit has a small kitchenette that includes a coffee maker, small refrigerator and microwave and very basic eating utensils- plates, bowls, glasses, mugs, forks. Queen bed sleeps 2, there is a sofa in case you don't want to share. Bathroom has a shower. Unit also has a small lanai that overlooks the pool and is a lovely place for some Kona coffee or island drinks. Quiet unit on top floor in the middle so little or no foot traffic (3rd floor/walk up). Internet available in unit and public coin operated washer dryer on site. Restaurants, bars, and small beach just outside of your doorstep along with the weekly Farmer's Market.

On-site FREE parking available although space may be limited after 6 PM so grab your spot early. Airport shuttle is approximately $28 for 2 people one way if you use speedi-shuttle- and make sure you pre-book- they don't take walk ups! Taxi is about $38 one way from the airport.

Daily price includes Hawaii 13.24% tax.

The condo complex is a unique property that really has "old Hawaii" flavor and it is in downtown Kona on Alii Drive. You are right in the downtown area and steps from beautiful water views, sunsets, and nightlife, but my unit is quiet and secluded from any noise. There are 100 units in the complex in (6) 3-story buildings and all condos are individually owned. The best part of the property is its grounds- boasting of dozens of native plants and soon to be a very very small botanical garden. Most owners take great pride in their "small slice" of Hawaii because they live on site part of the year and most of the owners keep the property maintained very well for ourselves and guests. My unit is kept clean, has some updates and we are hoping to do the bathroom in November . All furnishings are Hawaiian contemporary and have much aloha. I have rented out my condo since 2004 and have enjoyed sharing Kona with many like minded travelers.

I bought the studio in 2004 when I was an Ironman athlete and trained 3 months out of the year on the Big Island and I raced several Ironman World Championships in Kona. I later became a pure cyclist and today I still train on the Big Island several times a year. Kona is my home away from home and is a pretty special place for me and it is fantastic to share a part of Hawaii with so many travelers. Owning a unit in Hawaii is expensive and we try to provide a nice clean travel option to budget minded travelers since so many options in the area can be dirty and uncomfortable or way too expensive.

Personally I keep the studio with very basic amenities so not to over complicate things and it has exactly what you need to make a great trip comfortable. We do not keep food or condiments in the unit between guests to avoid issues with heat, humidity, and bugs. If you plan on cooking on the BBQ you will need to bring or buy your own condiments (salt, pepper, sugar, etc). At the start of your stay you will be provided with paper towels, a small dish soap, a cleaning sponge and dish towel, 2 rolls of toilet paper, shower soap,clean linens and towels. These amenities are not replenished during your stay and the guest will need to buy products beyond the supplied inventory. If 1-2 people staying 2-3 nights, the supply should be adequate. Condo is cleaned ONLY at departure. If you have a daily/weekly cleaning need, you need to let me know an we'll see what we can arrange at the guest's expense. Also, if you will be visiting for a few days, I do NOT keep beach towels in the unit (just shower towels) and you may want to bring or buy beach towels for your stay.

I love sharing my slice of aloha and want you to enjoy Kona but please remember anything you damage, break or take will be charged to you.

Although the condo is not overly fancy and is not the Ritz, it is a lovely clean little gem and a great landing spot to visit downtown Kona, the surrounding beaches, and even a visit to the volcano- a must visit in my humble opinion. I hope to meet you through Airbnb if you choose my place but either way enjoy Kona and the Big I and its beaches, surf, history...it is a spectacular island! With much Aloha, Neva
