Premium position within Kona Isle, first row access to oceanfront, swimming pool...No stairs to fight with your luggage or groceries! No street noise, just the crashing of the waves at night. Grounds are well kept during the day and lit up at night for those strolls after the sun goes down. Unit is fit out with beach chairs to boogie board....I'd check the condo out first - then do your shopping. Many things like laundry soap, dish soap are already provided in the unit. From the onsett of the booking I felt right at home with the owner, she is really sweet & quick to respond to any of your questions. Our packet had tags, post card..you can tell Jennifer really does care about your stay and is all about the little details.
Kona has so many sights to see. Enjoyed the volcano. We were able to see the flame and molten lava. Great seafood restaurants. Jackie Rey, Splashers, Fish Hopper, among others. Our condo was on ground floor, close to the ocean. Enjoyed Kona Joe's coffee ranch and tour. Great coffee! Small towns were very quaint. Tourists and locals were all very friendly. Liked the crafts fair, marketplaces with fresh fruits. Vacation wasn't long enough. Weather was humid.
The condo has everything you need, the owners where great to work with which made the process very easy. Kona Isle's is very well maintained, nice pool, BBQ's for your use and a great water front area with tables and chairs. The location was very convenient.
We had a great time! Really nice 1 bedroom condo, ground level . Closer to the shopping area !
I would suggest to change the bed it's to small and noise !
We can't say enough good things about this quiet, one bedroom condo. The ground level made an easy walk to the lovely backyard park that was our own private beach. (There are no typical sand beaches in Kona but one was crafted on this property.) We were delightfully surprised that we could fall asleep listening to the ocean waves in the bedroom that is not on the ocean side. At nightfall, the ocean is lit from the property's edge providing a spectacular view of the rolling waves. We enjoyed watching daylight break while sipping coffee and the sunset fall while sipping wine on the lanai. Many days dolphins and whales were in clear view. It was a bit too far for us to walk, but the condo was an easy drive to downtown Kona as well as to other points south. The Kona Trolley picks up next door at Kona by the Sea. Get a schedule at any tour location. The condo is the best stocked rental we've stayed in. Everything you need, and more, is there. It seems folks buy things (we bought Dawn dish soap) to use and leave them for the next house guest to use. Don't buy anything other than food until you see what's at the condo. The house is decorated in local Hawaiian fashion which very welcoming. We hope to become repeat guests.
It has everything you need, plus a fantastic view. The owner Jennifer is great to deal with. The grounds are very maintained, and the pool is excellent!
We love the Big Island. You can go from a tropical beach to a volcano and a mountain with snow,amazing! We have stayed at Kona Isle six times and four times in D2. We plan to stay again. That should tell you how much we like Kona Isle and D2. It's a great oceanfront condo. Jennifer is wonderful to work with on booking and taking care of any problems.
