“This is a 5 Star Rental Property”
Reviewed 2 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

people found this review helpful

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.

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.

“Peace and quiet in paradise”

This was my second stay here and just as good as the first time. When I walked in the door it was like I had come home. The immediate sense is of peace and quiet.... At night the sound of the waves send you to sleep and in the morning the bird song awakens you. What a great way to decompress on a holiday.

The view out the doors to the ocean is amazing and the sitting outside to watch the sunset with a cold drink is the perfect way to end a day!

The condo itself is immaculate and has everything you need for a short or long stay. I'm already looking forward to when I can return!!

“Peaceful and private with stunning vistas!”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Aloha! I've separated my review into sections:
Booking & Arrival: Jennifer takes care of everything you need to know, when you need to know. Effortless to find the location (we rented a car), assigned parking spot, and keyed entry.
The location: This is my 15th stay on the Hawaiian Islands, and second on The Big Island. This condo complex was quietly off the road (no traffic or pedestrian noise), was oceanfront, with beautiful views and the wonderful sounds of waves crashing on lava rock. The grounds were kept clean and manicured by the resident manager, Carol. There's lots of colorful birds, flowers, and green grass. Also a private beach area and BBQ area with lots of seating. The pool is small with comfortable chaise lounge chairs and large umbrella tables. It's a 5 minute drive to all the restaurants and shops of Kona, and a 10 minute drive to Safeway, Walmart, Costco. There's no smoking allowed anywhere on the grounds, including the parking lot. Most followed this rule; we had neighbors that did not.
The D2 Condo: Ground floor condo with a nice-sized lanai, with 2 large comfortable chairs and table. We spent a lot of time here, watching the waves and birds and a sneaky mongoose, who kept to the side tree area. Patio doors that open wide with screen doors. You'll want to keep these closed if you don't want birds coming in visit. They're tenacious! Everything you need is here: beach towels, extra foam fold-up beds, towels, toiletries, cleaning supplies, lots of bedding, pillows and towels, coffee maker, BBQ supplies....just everything! It's really comfortable and spacious in the kitchen/living area. The bathroom is very small, and gets no air circulation. It also smells a bit pungent, like sewer. Every so often, the drain in the shower area backs up suds and black dirt, which could be part of the issue. (I'll be sure to let Jennifer know). We left the fan on continuously in the bathroom because of the smell and humidity. We enjoyed the large overhead fans in all the rooms; we're from the prairies, and found it very humid with no air-conditioning. (That being said, air-conditioners are loud outside, and we didn't have to deal with that from any of the condos. It was beautifully quiet). Excellent Wi-Fi.
Cleanliness: the condo is cleaned prior to arrival, so the surface-cleaning of kitchen and bathroom was shiny. However, this condo could use a big cleaning. The floors were swept, and only in visible areas, but not washed and were dirty. There was dirt and sand under the mats and behind the couch had lots of dirt and a dead gecko. The decorative palm tree's leaves are needing a washing - that's a lot of dust. The towels and sheets were very clean and fresh.
Tips: Carol told us to take our trash out every night and not leave anything around that a cockroach would like. We were diligent about this; even if we left for a few hours, we sealed the garbage and put it in the fridge. Recycle. Visit the little library near the office. It's well maintained and stocked with LOTs of good books.
Encounters: We encountered a gigantic cockroach in the bathroom and on another occasion, the largest centipede we had ever seen (also in the bathroom). We purchased (and left) 2 cans of roach/bug spray. It's the tropics. And Carol had already warned us about the size of critters. Everything is 'big' on the Big Island!
Summary: Jennifer is lovely to work with and personalizes her communications, making everyone feel special. The condo is fabulous, for its location, size, amenities, and view.

Aloha Alva and Paul,

Your kind words and comments are much appreciated.

The plumbing issue has been taken care of and our cleaning lady will be paying more attention to the detail. Thank you for telling us about the issues.

Although we have pest control regularly. it is not uncommon to see ""bugs"" on the tropical Island. However, we shall ask for reinspect and respray.

So glad you had a great time at our oceanfront condo at Kona Isle, please come back soon. You are wonderful couples and great guests.

Aloha,
Jennifer

We stayed at Jennifer's condo in Kona for a week last week and it was a wonderful stay. Ideal location about a mile from Kailua Village and all the restaurants and shopping. Easy walk along Ali'i drive. We spent many morning and evenings on the condo just relaxing and listening to the waves crash. Much better than being in a hotel! Thanks Jennifer!

This oceanfront 1 bedroom condo is an excellent value. It is on the first floor facing the ocean and has all the comforts of home. The complex is perfectly located within walking distance (if you take regular walks) to town. Jennifer, the owner is a pleasure to deal with. She went above and beyond to make sure our stay was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this condo and wish we could have stayed longer. Be sure to take a swim in the salt water pool next to the property that is filled by crashing waves.
