Aloha!

My Unit is #326 and it is a 400 sq ft studio condo in the heart of downtown Kailua-Kona. The studio is a very clean 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 (by pool) and beautiful grounds that represent the best of Hawaii. Cooking facilities are basic with a very small kitchenette that includes a coffee maker, new full sized refrigerator and microwave and very basic eating utensils- plates, bowls, glasses, mugs, forks. The pool BBQ is the only cooking facility except the microwave in the studio. There is only a Queen bed and it could sleep 2. Bathroom has a shower. There is 1 Kohler porcelain sink. Unit also has a small lanai that overlooks the pool and is a lovely place for some Kona coffee or island drinks. Quiet un...

I did not meet the owner, but she was very cordial and quick to answer any questions or concerns I had. The Condo is very small but clean. The location was great, however there was no parking and had to drive around for thirty minutes to find a spot. We rented a Yukon which did not fit into the spots...

We are so happy you had a great trip and mahalo for staying with us. Once you get your luggage up, it is a lovely oasis. In our description we do speak about 3rd floor walk up and our cleaning help is 75 years old and manages the stairs all day so it is whatever your personal preference is but...

Neva’s place is very well situated if you want to walk around downtown Kailua Kona district where everyone hangs out for waves, food, music, and people watching! Helpful staff worked hard to make your stay a pleasant one!

Great location, clean, neat, updated bachelor suite. Travelling as a single this was an ideal spot. Lanai overlooked the pool and well kept lush landscaping. Parking is not ideal but if you just want sun and surf a car is not necessary. Lots of coffee shops, restaurants and general shopping in walking distance. I would definitely stay in #326 again.

About the neighbourhood
The property sits right in the center of downtown on Alii Drive just north of Lava Java and South of Bubba Gumps. All shops, bars, restaurants within .5 miles walking either way. Gorgeous water and sunset views just at the edge of the property. Lots to do at night just steps from your door after a great day of seeing the island! You do not necessarily need a car if you are staying situated in downtown Kona and like to walk- however if you want to explore the island I highly suggest it.
Getting around
Uber is now on Big Island but does not service airport and I would recommend a car if not Uber will suffice. Tours can be booked to Volcano.
Access
