75-6026 Alii Dr. Kailua-Kona

Units are smallish but clean, and the price is decent. Some units are upgraded, while others feel dated. The grounds are pleasant. Only buildings 1 and 6 will get you close to the ocean; consider springing for them. End oceanfront units are certainly the most desirable with commanding views. Building 4 units ending in 01 or 06 have their views blocked by the buildings in front of them. If you are in building 1 or 2, expect to park far away from your unit. Most units have lanais off the bedroom in addition to the living room. This property is gated after 8 p.m. 1/1 units (687 sq. ft.) are $105–$180, 1/1s with lofts are $120–$205, 2/2 units (1,115 sq. ft.) are $125–$300.

What Readers Have to Say

“I generally go to the bookstore & spend at least an hour rummaging through 5 or 6 books, see where they agree, see where they differ, and decide which one to buy. I had been through at least six, none of which had any personality, all of which sounded like fluffy promo crap, and then I found yours. I read about 5 pages, fell in love with it, took it to the check out counter & bought it. I went through it front to back, at least twice, & planned the trip. Thanks to your book, I had the best time I’ve ever had on vacation. The specifics in the directions you give are GREAT. Trying to drive & find things in an odd environment can be tough, but you guys made it easy. I found a huge and awesome, (and totally uncrowded) black sand beach on the road to Hana, and other things I would never have known about… Your books make planning & having a good vacation SO much easier. Trust me, I perused a number of books for this trip, looked all over Trip Advisor, and planned like crazy. I’d rather do it all with your book. Trip Advisor can tell you some good stuff, but you don’t know where the reviewer is “coming from”, or if it was a planted review. I can ususally spot those, but sifting through all the crap to get good info is incredibly time consuming. Now, I find out you have an app!! WOOHOO!!”
