Description of the Kailua-Kona vacation condo rental
Relax on our large, covered, private third floor lanai while watching the spinner dolphins, whales breech (in season) boats and other activities in the ocean or happenings on Alii Drive. YES, OUR CONDO HAS A BEAUTIFUL DIRECT OCEAN VIEW!!!! Right in the heart of Kailua Kona, you're only steps away from oceanfront shops, restaurants and the waterfront! FREE INTERNET, PARKING AND CABLE!

NEW FOR 2016: Beautifully renovated kitchen, ultra secure keypad lock system. H/E washer and dryer. Newly decorated, our lovely condo is fully equipped with everything you need in a home away from home for a few days, a few weeks, or a few months. The romantic bedroom offers a california king bed and plenty of closet storage and a large flatscreen TV. The living room has a fold out queen sofa and a flatscreen TV. Quality linens are provided.

Kona Plaza is a four floor condo community with elevators and free, secure garage parking. The building is quiet and the double paned sliding doors leading to the lanai block outside noise when you're ready to relax inside. Kona Plaza also has a lovely pool and two sundecks with grills and beautiful views.

We do not have hidden fees and recently saved a lucky traveler almost $200 by renting with us!

Combining warm aloha with Southern hospitality, we offer you a wonderful vacation experience and are happy to have many return guests we consider ohana!

Look no further!!! Amazing Condo!!!

July 29, 2015

Aloha! This is the place to stay!!! My Husband and I stayed here from June 28th thru July 22nd. We had such an amazing time. This was my first time visiting in Hawaii, but my husband use to have a Charter Boat here many years ago; so he has lived and has stayed everywhere in Kona. By far this is the best place that he has stayed at. We can not thank Mrs Jinger and Roger for making us feel like family. Their Condo is absolutely amazing! It is so clean, furnished beautifully and all the extras that come with it, just makes it feel like home. I am so over the moon, that we found such an amazing place and it was a bonus for it's location. Every morning I would take the elevator to the parking garage and there is an exit that brings you into a little mall like setting that is exactly in the middle of downtown Kona. The shops are amazing! Since I kept my routine up on a daily basis of strolling around the shops; in a very short time I was on first name basis with several people who worked at various stores on the strip. I felt so safe walking by myself and it was more than convenient to have this shortcut through our parking garage. Every night my husband & I would end our night sitting on our balcony talking about our days events; then in the morning.... OMG! What a view; we would do our selfies.............. It was so cool to see the beautiful water, people sailing, rowing and on Wednesday the Cruise Ship would dock...........Words can not even describe the beauty of it. What a way to wake up every morning. As for the extras that came with this property; The private Lanai on the 3rd floor was fabulous! At least 4 to 5 nights of the week we would bar b que. The grills were kept so clean and it is so peaceful and beautifully set up. They even have a big closet for books! The swimming pool was also a plus to end my day with. The landscaping in this area is also very picturesque. I can go on and on about how wonderful our stay was. I feel that the biggest bonus of all was making two new friends/family. Roger & Jinger; as you already know - we can not thank you enough for your hospitality and sharing your wonderful home with us. I am so looking forward to November for us all to hook up and go out to dinner. Look no further! This is the place to stay. Please feel free to contract me if you have any questions from a guest.

Owner's reply:

Aloha Karen and Chet,

Mahalo nui loa for your kind words! We're so delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us, as well as all the local surroundings. One of the best things about our condo, for us, is getting to know such wonderful people and making new friends. Welcome to our ohana and we look forward to meeting in person very soon! Jinger and Roger

Owner Supplied Testimonials

I highly recommend staying at this condo. The location is perfect for walking around Kona. The porch was nice for dining outside. The kitchen was nice and clean. The bed and fold-out couch were comfortable. The air conditioning was nice for my family members who were not used to the heat of summer. It was nice to have the washer and dryer. My visiting family with 3 adults and 2 children were all comfortable, safe, and happy. I plan on returning to this same condo the next time I visit Kona. The most significant reason is because of the super excellent customer service that I received from the owner. She was great at replying right away to all of my emails and calls. She helped to make sure everything went perfect for our vacation. I am very pleased with everything about the Kailua Bay Hideaway!

Fantastic location and value. Very clean and well equipped. Perfect place to stay for a few nights or weeks.

Recommended for: Tourists without a Car

From the first e-mail response to working with us while at the condo, Jinger and Roger made our stay comfortable and worry free. The condo was lovely and inviting, with many amenities, including a full kitchen, washer/dryer, beach items, and air conditioning. Truly a home away from home. We liked the direct pedestrian access onto Ali'i Drive at Kona Marketplace, secure parking, and being in the center of town. This was a great home base for all of our day trips. We would love to stay here on our next visit to the Big Island. Mahalo!

We really appreciate your "Aloha" hospitality. The condo was clean, well stocked, and very comfortable.

Dear Jinger and Roger, Happy Holidays! Your condo was simply perfect! Clean, clean, clean! We could not have gotten luckier when we reserved it. Great location, comfortable bed with nice sheets too! We will surely be visiting the Island again and will not stay anywhere else. Thanks to you and Roger for making our stay feel more like home than vacation. Meeting you both was a treat for both Bill and I. Simply stated, "Awesome"! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

Thank you for changing the week so we could enjoy your condo and for the help getting us here. Hope we can come back and hope to see you next time around. Thanks again, Ailene Great accommodations and amenities once we found our way. Well worth the frustration and thanks for the patient phone help. You guys are great...will recommend to anybody as a wonderful, warm home away from home. Thanks again, Sinc

Thanks so much for this place. It is perfect because it's in the middle of everything. We had a blast. God bless you!

We had a wonderful vacation August 13 - 24. The place is very nice and beaches in the area are beautiful. The view from the balcony is awesome. The guidebooks were extremely helpful and we got to see most of the island, the guidebooks really helped us get around. Everything is closely located and the surrounding area is very nice. Thank you for letting us use the place and hope to come back someday.

Wish we could stay another week. Mahalo

7/21/12 We will be back! You can not beat the location we walked to breakfast everyday. We even walked to the local market and all shops. The little extras they left in the condo were a nice touch. There was a lot of info on things to do and see at the condo. They called us on the 2nd day to see if we needed anything. We will recommend this condo to everyone we know.

Wonderful "Home Away From Home"

I was so happy to have found this condo in the heart of Kona. The convenience of the location is great. There are MANY thoughtful details in this condo - everything you need to feel at home, regardless of the length of stay. I was impressed with the quality of the bed linens and towels. Not your typical "rental" linens. Nice touch! The ocean view from from the lanai and living room was wonderful. The unit offers much privacy, and I felt very safe. I also used the bbq grill offered on the property and was pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness. The thoughtfulness of the owners was greatly appreciated, I truly felt like I met the proverbial "old friend". Had I found this prior to making other housing arrangements for the last part of my trip, I would have been perfectly happy spending the entire 3 weeks in this condo. Thanks, Jinger, for having internet service in place for me - you knew that I would need it more before I did. The first week of my class would have been much more challenging without it. After having read some other reviews of Kona Plaza, I was slightly concerned with the potential noise level of being in town, right above a restaurant. Noise from town, or from the restaurant, was never a problem. Ironically, the ventilation system on top of the strip mall in front of Kona Plaza was a sort of "white noise", eliminating any "town sounds" there may have been. If you have a car, parking here was also very convenient - a plus for being in town. Also, having experience with staying at another property last year I know that pests can be a problem when staying in town. I did not see one unwanted "guest" during my week at this property. Thanks, I enjoyed your condo!

Enjoyed waking up on your lanai with a cup of java to the sounds of Kona's famous starlings joyously celebrating sunrise! And a magnificent view of a cruise ship all lit up in the bay...We love your place! So many thoughtful extras!
