Alii Villas 130
***** During the Covid-19 Pandemic, we (as well as all legal short-term rentals) are NOT permitted to operate as a quarantining facility. The only permissible way to rent our home during this time is to be exempt from quarantine, either as an on-island resident or as a traveler (as of Oct 15, 2020) participating in the Pre-travel Testing Program that requires a negative Covid-19 test 72 hours prior to arrival on the Island of Hawaii. If you are traveling under the Pre-travel Testing Program, OUR policy is that you must provide us with negative test results for ALL members of your party prior to entering our home. We will ONLY provide you with a valid door lock code with negative test results. Please bear in mind that by law ANY person who is not exempt from these restrictions or who tests positive for Covid-19 will be required to either quarantine in a hotel at your added expense, or return back to the mainland. Quarantining means that you are not allowed to leave the home under any circumstances except for in an emergency. It is a difficult time to travel right now- please consider these factors prior to booking. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out first.
Other travel details-
Before Travel: I've had good experience with Vault Health as an official Hawaii Testing Partner. It's a simple, do it yourself at-home saliva test for Covid-19 (no Q-tip up the nose!). Depending on your arrival date, this may or may not be your best option as shipping does not occur on Sundays. Also, complete all information online for Safe Travels Hawaii. Tip- enter each leg of travel within the state as a separate trip.
After Travel: You will be tested again for Covid-19 at Kona Airport. It's a less invasive, antigen test that just skirts the outer part of your nostril. There will be a line, but you're free to leave right after (no waiting for results). You're in the clear if you don't receive a call within an hour or so.
Mahalo for your understanding. *****
Accessible and modern ground-floor, 2 bedroom/2 bath unit with spectacular ocean front views on a 200 sq ft lanai. Only one small step from a parking spot directly in front of your unit separates you from your Hawaii Island home (walk around to the right for step-less entry). No other stairs! Granite counter tops and a fully stocked kitchen await, along with an extra-large washer & dryer, step in showers in both bathrooms, a king-size tempurpedic bed, and queen-sized Murphy bed in the guest room. Check-in anytime with our PIN-based door lock.
We are also sticklers for health and cleanliness. We follow VRHP/VRMA (Vacation Rental Housekeeping Professionals/Management Association) guidelines and protocols for cleaning, including blocking at least one day between rentals, having our cleaners wait at least three hours, preferably 24 hours prior to entry to protect their health, and using a comprehensive disinfection process with a focus on high-touch surfaces. Linens and bedding are washed using the highest possible temperatures, and everything that was out for use will be washed as well, regardless if it was used. Please note that some decorative pillows and other soft objects may be removed to improve cleanliness, and kitchen supplies (spices/condiments) will be limited to single-use items. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time!
Concrete construction, ground floor location, and ceiling fans in all rooms keep the unit cool. However, to accommodate those unaccustomed to tropical climates, there are two air conditioners: a 14,000 BTU unit in the master bedroom/living room and an 8,000 BTU unit in the guest bedroom. But feel free to keep all the windows open at night since you're set so far back from Alii Drive! Nearly 200 meters/yards separate you from the roar of traffic, leaving only the sound of crashing waves to lull you to sleep at night. Our building is the closest one to the ocean in the complex. Don't forget to catch the fiery sunsets from April - September from the privacy of your lanai, and from the viewing area the rest of the year.
Feel like getting a little work done? There's a networked laser printer and high-speed internet access and 5G router. In case you need a break from vacationing, Netflix is available on our Samsung SmarTV. Our unit comes with beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and coolers as well, along with boogie boards and assorted beach toys for the kids. These supplies are stored in the outdoor closet, next to your parking spot. Heated pool and BBQ facilities are close by for those relax-at-home days.
This is our home for part of the year, and it shows. Artwork from well-renowned local artists and our own photography grace our walls, and furnishings/bedding are high end. Kitchen cupboards are completely stocked with china, glassware, cutlery, and nearly every appliance imaginable. We also make updates every time we visit. And don't forget about the heated pool and BBQ facilities just steps from the unit. If you're daring (and a really advanced snorkeler/swimmer), there is good snorkeling right outside the unit. *Warning* Tides can be very rough and unpredictable. Enter at your own risk!
For full disclosure, there are two Google Nest cameras- one on the lanai above the love seat, focused on the space between the lanai and our neighbors, as well as the doorbell. The lanai camera will be disabled at check-in. For long-term stays, access can be shared, since it is essentially your home during that time.
Finally, whatever you choose to do, our Kona Town Condo is the perfect unit in the perfect location for you and your ohana. Mahalo and e komo mai!
