Alii Cove Reviews

The accommodations were excellent. A couple of issues we had were fixed almost immediately. As mentioned in a telephone conversation, the only recommendation would be to replace the beds on the main floor. While somewhat comfortable, the noise was like sleeping on paper.

The condo was beautiful, It was clean, and had everything we needed during our vacation. Will Definitely stay there again when we visit the Big Island.

The unit was wonderful - very clean, in a very well kept and safe community, nicely decorated, and had everything we needed for our stay. It has excellent internet connection for working, and the work area upstairs is nice to have. Our young children loved it. There were even games like Clue, Monopoly, Sorry, and a few pool toys, 4 beach chairs, boogie board, etc. From the loft, we could see cruise ships and parasailers. We ate dinners on the lanai, which was nice. The neighboring units were quiet. Communication with the owners is fast and easy. We would definitely stay again. To note, the unit has a/c. The renter has control over turning it on & off and to some degree, control of the temperature. The owner controls a preset program that has a minimum temperature that the a/c can be set to. For our stay, that was 76 degrees (we could not turn it down lower). But, that said, we were very comfortable and never found it necessary to contact them to ask if we could have it any cooler. It would not at all hinder us from staying again. Overall, a fantastic stay! I hope we have the opportunity to return.

Nancy and Mark were great to deal with and their property has everything you could want. The location is perfect for walking into town. The view of the water from the lanai made morning Kona coffee even more special. Pool and BBQ area are very well maintained.

Nice condo, close to town but not noisy like town. Nice pool and small gym on premises.
April 2023

We spent 6 great weeks at Alii Cove before moving to Waikoloa. The condo had everything we needed and the central location made it a great launch point for many visits. Walking distance to beach, restaurants, bars, shops, and market. Knutson & Associates were great to communicate with and provided their office as a delivery point for Amazon orders. They always responded quickly and addressed minor issues we had upon arrival, such as replacing the living room fan remote battery, the kitchen faucet, and providing a standing fan for the bedroom. The kitchen was well equiped, lots of towels, and beach stuff. Condo was very clean. Definitely recommend and would love to return if available during our next visit.

Overall great experience. clean and well furnished. liked the location. grounds are pretty pool clean and we used BBQ for steaks. I recommend this location and would use it again. we used cooler and beach chairs nice to avoid rentals.

We had some hiccups with communication prior to arriving and we also would have appreciated clearer instrutions for how to use key box, but once we settled in all was generally fine. (Staff did come over to help us right away). The condo is well-appointed, and has a nice welcome basket and helpful binder. Comfortable walk into town. Very clean. Only real downside is that16 hours/day there is CONSIDERABLE noise from the main road - drivers seem to like to play music loud and have loud car engines, so not quite a paradise ambiance. But If this doesn't bother you, then no worries, it was overall a good value.

This two bedroom two bathroom condo/apartment was very clean. The master bed was very comfortable. Lots of pillows. I could sleep with the sliding screen door open and the fan and was very comfortable. The street out the window was noisy but it didn’t seem to bother me or my sleep. The master bath is lovely. I loved the glass rain shower, body jets and hand shower combo. The other bedroom bed was comfortable and the bathroom was good. No a/c in that bedroom. The fan helped. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. I couldn’t find a kettle to make tea, so just used a pot. The TV requires you to have subscriptions for most viewing like most TVs in the US but we aren’t used to that from where we come from. We enjoyed sitting outside on the very private patio. I also appreciated the snorkelling equipment and washer & dryer available for our use. We would definitely consider staying here again if we returned to the island.

We’d definitely rent this place again. It had everything our family of five needed, including comfortable sleeping quarters, a well equipped kitchen and ample beach gear (umbrella, chairs, towels, etc.). Short walk to town which has plenty of shops and great casual restaurants. No complaints. Loved it.

This trip was one of the firsts I’ve had with my partner, and was are from the island of Oahu. I will say that we throughly enjoy the room, and it truly felt like a home away from home! Everything was so close in walking distance! We easily learned how to work the Kona Trolley station and that saved us a lot on money. We loved how spacious the room was for the two of us. The pool was very nice! We visited it 3 times! Lovely neighbors, and easily close to everything. We will be returning on a later date!

Before our arrival, we started getting nervous that this vacation rental would be dirty and in a bad location since it was so affordable compared to other rentals in Kona. When we drove up to the complex we quickly realized that "you get what you pay for" isn't always true. Alii Cove is a clean and quiet oasis right in the heart of Kona. Walking distance to downtown, a lovely coffee shop called Tea:licious Cafe, and several beaches. The Alii Cove pool is perfect for little ones with a 2 ft. kiddie pool & plenty of shade. Our condo was clean, spacious and well equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a coffee press, which we realized after we went to buy one (I think we might be coffee snobs). Both beds are extremely comfortable and there are so many pillows to choose from that I should've just left mine at home! It also has plenty of extra linens, soft blankets, towels & beach towels. This unit has A/C which is such a nice luxury after a long day at the beach. It also has a hose with sprayer attachment to wash salt and sand off gear and kids. We were just so impressed with how well equipped this home is. Management was helpful and easy to communicate with. Without thinking, we checked in before check-in time and the walk-thru manager was so kind and understanding with our mess up. We will definitely be back!

Welcome to Kona, and the Alii Cove. I have been coming to the island for over 25 years and this Condo is the best place I have stayed. The grounds are immaculate and you have access from Alii, Drive and or Walua Rd. You are walking distance to the center of town and it takes 20 min. There is a bus stop just outside of the entrance for the Kona Trolly bus and it's free for everybody. It takes you to Keahou and to Makala St where the Target is. There is a white sand beach just across the road from the entrance with washrooms and showers. The pool and exercise building are clean and a short walk from the suite, remember to take the key and please don't let the gate slam for consideration of the other guests. The condo is the best suite that I have rented in my 25 years of travel. Large and spacious with comfortably appointed furniture and beds. I like to cook and the kitchen has everything you could need to prepare meals for your family. The patio is just the right size to serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner faces west so you can enjoy the sunset while having supper. The host has a binder with local information that is an excellent resource for activities. The neighbours are friendly and a helpful resource for local information. This suite and facility are perfect for our family of four and I highly recommend it for your next vacation. I plan on returning to this condo next vacation.

Extended stay ...vacuum cleaner was broken...I fixed it but no simple hand tools on site. I planned to work on site but the internet connection was initially not adequate. Property owner was not present in HI, she was not initially clear about that. She did pay for another portable AC unit that I was required to. Pick up at Home Depot and install...Larry Krupa

First you need to know that, in order to get from the car to the condo unit, you need to traverse 36 steps (19 down and then 19 up). There's another way to get to unit from the car but it involves a much longer way around and going down a short, steep hill (or up on the way back to the car). This is of course quite difficult with luggage, or with packages/groceries from COSTCO, etc. (When raining it's also a bit dangerous unless you're holding on to the railing.) This was not revealed in listing details. Few of the upstairs units at this condo complex have this problem. Should've been disclosed explicitly. The other design flaw is that the A/C compressor is on the lanai. The lanai small and closed on the top and on three sides. The compressor turns the lanai into an oven - totally unusable when A/C is on. This is ok if there's only one person staying there, or if all people staying there are either inside or outside (in which case you can shut off the A/C). The condo DOES have some very positive attributes, the most positive of which is the view. There's a very nice view toward the ocean and you can even see waves breaking at Honl's Beach. Lovely! There were some irregularities with the owner. First, he was supposed to take half of the total due at first and half I think 60 or 30 days prior to check-in. Instead he took ALL of the amount due from my CC upfront. He apologized but did NOT offer to reverse it. Said he didn't understand the VRBO system very well. The other irregularity was check-out. Hawaii faced a COVID emergency toward the end of my stay. The State Health Director said: "I'm asking you to prepare like you would for a hurricane or other natural disaster...State health officials agree that the current situation is a crisis. We are there. We are on the point at which we overwhelm our resources, that’s a disaster. That’s where we’re heading". Later, Governor Ige pleaded with visitors not to come to Hawaii. I love Hawaii and its people. I felt that the situation required that I leave, even though I was vaccinated. So, I followed the State Health Director's plea and I left 12 days early from the 60 day reservation. I left as soon as I could so I was only able to give 3 days notice (though he would not I hope have re-rented it during the crisis ). Owner sent a refund check - but only for about 45% of what was due. Owner's not dishonest but makes decisions on what to disclose/do that are very skewed toward his financial interest

The location and the property itself is great. My family had 1 month remote work/study trip to Big Island, and enjoy the convenience of this gated community. Not far from town center, but far enough to escape the crowd. The property itself is great. The only improvement would be a better set of cutlery in the kitchen. The knives are dull. I think it's important because vacation rentals are advertised to be 30 day minimum stay. A well equipped kitchen is really a must. The property management is the only low light of my stay. They provided 3 garbage bags and ask me to buy them. Not a big deal, but seriously? No dishwasher detergent as well. Communication is very slow, and most things resulted in "we don't provide it" or "it's just a starter kit". It's not how most good vacation rentals hosts would handle it. I forgot a piece of luggage worth ~$50. And they claim they didn't see it. How is it possible? $50 is not a big deal, but all these things added up and the experience is really bad with the management people. I suggest the property owner change the management company.

If you're staying in Kona for a longer period of time, Alii Cove is simply the BEST! This place is one of the rare gems where pictures do not do it justice - the townhome is huge and has literally everything you could need for a stay in Hawaii. My friends and I stayed for a month, as we were working remotely - we could not have had a better experience. The wifi was excellent - with multiple people on Zoom all day, we never had an issue. We walked to the "downtown" restaurants almost daily and enjoyed Honl's Beach across the street multiple times a week. The pool/jacuzzi in the complex was such a nice way to unwind and all of the neighbors we met were so friendly. The view is just gorgeous - we enjoyed countless sunsets and dinners on the lanai as well. Alii Cove truly became like a home away from home for us all and I could not reccomend it enough!

Located on a beautifully landscaped property, with a nice but somewhat crowded pool. Great sunsets from the balcony. Clean, no insects. Good amenities, though really missed AC and fans only help a bit. Bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen are nice, living room looks better than in photos. Really enjoyed that the mezzanine level has a desk and a bed for my remote work needs. Great location near to Kona town center.

What a wonderful place to stay for an extended period of time. This condo, in Ali'i Cove, was perfect for our family of 4. It became our home away from home. The owner along with previous guests have supplied everything you need for a comfortable extended stay. From kitchenware to boogie boards, from beach towels to pool noodles, from a BBQ to beach chairs, from books to extra linens. The condo also includes a private garage! The location of the condo is excellent. We had views of famous Kona sunsets and could hear the sound of the ocean. During high surf, it would make loud crashing sounds and low surf conditions would turn it into a calming whisper. We slept with the sliding glass door open to hear it. The upper lanai features a beautiful view of the ocean and neighborhood beach below. Surfers and boogie boarders frequent it daily. The office in the condo was especially helpful as I was able to work remotely from Kona. There was reliable internet/wifi and a printer. Our family particularly enjoyed the Ali'i Cove pool. It was heated and clean. The spa was a good size. And if you have a toddler, there is even a toddler pool. And if you want to work out, there's a gym. Kona is not far from great snorkel spots (Kahalu'u, Two-Step) and a beautiful drive to other amazing beaches like Kapalua. It's within walking distance to good beachfront restaurants like Huggo's and Papa Kona. It close to brand new Safeway, plus Target, Costco, Macy's, etc. The only small drawbacks to note are that it's hard to feel the AC in the master bedroom and that mattress has seen better days. Also, Kona tap water is pretty poor so I would recommend buying bottled water for your stay. The owner was super responsive and helpful with recommendations as well. Bottom line is that we loved staying here and we can't wait to return!

December 2020

We have stayed in Alii Cove a few times before but unfortunately the owner had just sold the property and therefore it was no longer available. We like the landscaping,pool and hot tub area plus the close proximity to town and other amenities of this resort which is one of the reasons we choose to stay here. Anyway,Wayne's condo suited our plans regarding time,size ,location etc so we opted to stay there and could not have been happier with our choice. The view from the lanai was wonderful,the neighbours quiet and friendly and the beds very comfortable(my husband is very picky) Yes of course I could nit pick about certain aspects,some furniture needs updating for example and pantry,cupboards and drawers need a good sort out,but as new owners the Coppers have probably not had time to get everything done. The fact that when we return to the Big Island we shall not be looking elsewhere for accommodation is recommendation in itself We had an enjoyable 3 months and anyone who decides on this apartment will not be disappointed
June 2020

This two bedroom is very comfortable. Kitchen was stocked with most everthing we needed to cook some meals in the condo. There is window AC units in the living room and master bedroom. The front bedroom dis not and was a bit warm, but ceiling fan did help. Cute little lanai , but Alii drive does make it a little noisy (but to be expected as it is the main drive) to keep door open or to sit out there. The property manager was very responsive and helpful. Wi Fi and TV were great for down time in the evening. Bathrooms were good sized and nicely appointed. Note no tubs if traveling with little ones. Were were not, so perfect for us. We would stay here again when in town!

Wayne is a new condo owner. He is working on communications and information. I found him very receptive to my inquiries. The condo is wonderfully situated with a great swimming pool. Beautiful view from the lanai (although heat pump on the lanai was a negative- turn off air conditioner before using lanai)

This as one of the best rental houses I have had the pleasure to rent. The cooking equipment included everything we needed and then a little more. Perfect family rental with lots of extra room, games and closets full of beach toys for adults and children alike.

We rented this condo as a transition between just moving to the island and a longer term rental. It was perfect for us. They had everything we needed. When they said fully furnished, they truly meant it. The loft really is a third bedroom and the condo is in great shape and well decorated. The location was perfect, we walked to town and/ or across the road to Honls beach every day. We also used the pool almost everyday and they keep it, along with the rest of the grounds very well maintained. It feels like a very secure and safe place. We absolutely loved this place and it was hard to leave when the time came. I would highly recommend this place.

We have just returned from our third stay at this wonderful condo. It continues to be our favorite place to stay when in Kona.

Thank you Melanie for allowing us to stay at your condo. It met all our needs, as a family of five adults. The unit was freshly painted and very clean. The sleeping accommodations in the three bedrooms were excellent, with the mattresses being very comfortable. The kitchen allowed us to prepare meals when we wanted. Small appliances were available. The lanai provided a magnificent view of the ocean. Many coffees and meals were had on it. The complex, too, is immaculate - lush and well groomed. The pool and hot tub were well maintained and used daily. A gym and barbecue were also available. The central location made for an easy 15 minute walk to all that downtown Kona had to offer. I plan to return to this condo and would encourage others to also consider it. Mahalo Melanie.

If you need a larger space and have a chance to stay here, you'll be very happy and comfortable at Les and Ginny's place!

We stayed at the condo for five weeks during Ironman World Championship (sept-oct 2018). There were six of us for most of the time. The house was spacious and full of amenities. The air conditioning was good. The location was perfect. Everything you could think of was there. And even if it wasn't there (in my case - a scale) they bought it the next day. Water filter in the fridge was also changed the next day after I asked about it. Any questions or inquiries were answered super fast. We really enjoyed the stay. Highly recommend the condo!

We stayed at this place for a week and a half in July 2018. It was exactly what we needed and would definitely stay again on a return trip . The condo is located just minutes from the main street in Kona. There are food stores and restaurants a quick drive away. There is a beach within walking distance and the pool at the residence is great for kids and families. The condo is large, and has everything we needed. It was nice to have three bedrooms, with everything from twin beds up to a King in the master suite. The information provided about our stay was very helpful and complete. Les was very responsive, helpful and reasonable in our correspondence with him. In short, this was a great find on the Big Island and we would not hesitate to stay again.

July 2018

Property badly in need of thorough clean, especially kitchen cupboards. Several pans in the kitchen needed replacement as did most of the plates and bowls which were more suited to a hostel rather than a luxury apartment. The small broken window had been 'repaired 'using a brown Safeway carrier bag. The owner informed us that she already knew about the window. Be prepared to shop for kitchen and bathroom paper goods, dish soap laundry soap and a pot scourer within 48 hours as a minimal supply was available. Seven light bulbs were either missing or burned out with only one spare available. On the plus side, the bed was very comfortable although the pillows seemed to have ancient stains. Yes, we enjoyed Kona and the Alii Cove complex but I recommend this property is renovated to bring it up to the standard of other properties in this complex.

The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Our condo was one of the nicest places we have stayed on the island. We had a few maintenance problems which hopefully will be fixed soon. Dryer broke a week into the trip, but hanging clothes to dry wasn’t a big problem. We called maintenance and they got right back to us and a new washer/dryer was ordered. The purpose of our trip was to see family and our new grand daughter. Can’t wait to come back.

Beautifully decorated and everything we needed for our 6 week stay. We enjoyed the convenience of being able to walk into town for dinner or shopping. The lani had a great view of the ocean and was a wonderful place for morning coffee or to watch for whales or dolphins. There always seemed to be a nice breeze off the ocean in the morning and one down from the mountains in the evening. Communications with the owners was easy and they were very responsive to any questions. We would love to stay in this unit again.

We really enjoyed our stay at N23 and found the accommodations better than most we have stayed at. Kitchen appliances have all been updated and are quite nice. Great use of space in both bedrooms on the main floor because the shelves for keeping all of your clothes and such are below the bed. This opens up the rooms and they are a lot less cluttered than some we have stayed in. My wife especially liked the white linens and towels as it really brightens up the place. Five breach towels were also provided as well as a nice cooler and beach chairs to take to the beach. Each of the chairs also had a bamboo mat and also room in the back for additional cold items if required. Nan and Mark were easy to reach for questions and any issues that came up. We communicated by email while there and any we sent were answered in some cases immediately or at most within an hour or so. They do also have a local couple that can be reached as well if something comes up, such as a repair or delivery and you can't be at the condo for any reason.

One of the most attractive vacation rentals we've ever stayed in. Everything was new and upgraded. Grounds were immaculately kept. Fabulous location. Beautiful pool. Walk to downtown Kona. Looking for quiet...this is the place.

This vacation rental is your home away from home, but in Beautiful Hawaii! Spacious layout for a family vacation or girls getaway, with lots of room to spread out and relax. Lovely outdoor spaces with comfortable furniture. Large kitchen with upgraded kitchen appliances, and care taken with the interior furnishings. Would recommend to all of our friends ! We are so grateful for being able to spend time there and just relax. Can't wait to go there again for a longer period of time, the sunsets are divine!

This property is your dream home away from home. Well-appointed unit perfect for holidays with family or friends. Steps away from the main street (Ali'i Drive) and great beaches. Great home base from which you can tour the entire island. We're lucky we got this one!!

Absolutely gorgeous! Our stay in Kailua-Kona was exceptional based on the accommodations. The condo is immaculate and exquisitely furnished, having everything you might need or want while on your vacation, making our stay absolutely perfect. We loved to sit out on the master suite lanai for breakfast to enjoy the beautiful ocean view, and our favorite part of the day was always spent soaking in the breathtaking Hawaiian sunsets over dinner from the main lanai. We loved the location of this property. It was the perfect walking distance to Kailua Village and all of the popular restaurants, shops and farmers market. We took our infant son for stroller walks every morning along the water’s edge, often stopping at Honl’s White Sand Beach, and every evening to enjoy the local culture and cuisine. When we weren’t out sightseeing, we were enjoying the outstanding weather splashing around at the complex’s large pool and Keiki (kiddies) pool. This property is perfect for families and friends of all ages and truly made our Hawaiian vacation dreams come true! We highly recommend it and can hardly wait to go back!

We have stayed at this location twice, and I would go back again in a heartbeat. We love this place. The Unit is new, very well maintained and has everything you could possibly need. It has 3 bedrooms, full kitchen, living room and dinning room and a great deck with a view of the ocean. It is a true home away from home. The property has its own pool (great for the kids) and the ocean is literally a 5 minute walk down the hill. It is located at the end of the main strip, so very easy to walk to all of the restaurants and shops. It is close to everything in downtown Kona. Honestly, you really couldn't ask for more in terms of location and quality of the unit. Can't wait to go back!

Highly recommend this Condo. It is spacious, very clean, super comfortable, with heaps of pantry / bathroom extras in a lovely secured property, so close to town a car is not essential. The views out to the ocean are lovely as are the sunsets, and many good nights were spent playing cards around the cute little games table. We have respect for other peoples places and had our own "In house rule" of no food or drinks on carpet flooring and hope others are like minded. Being near the non busy Walua Road has benefits of no traffic noise. Nancy the owner is lovely to deal with and very accommodating. Keep in mind it is on 2nd floor if stairs are an issue. Stayed as a family for Ironman 2015 and this place was a blessing compared to 1 of the 2 Condos we had to book a little further out of town the previous year. Oh love Kona "Mahalo"

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The owners were easy to work with and always quick with their responses to any questions we had. The apartment is nicely furnished and the sunset view is wonderful. Location is right in Kona, close to everything. The pool and grilling area is beautiful -- right on Ali’i across from the ocean! We would highly recommend staying here to anyone!

What a Great Experience. This was a terrific condo and location. The Condo was very comfortable and well decorated. The appliances worked well and we had all the cookware and dishes we needed. The washer and dryer was very handy. The condo was very clean and well supplied with towels and linens, coolers, boogie boards, wifi, a big flat screen in the living room and one in the loft as well. The “Big Island Revisited” book and other travel information that was there was invaluable. We felt totally at home after only a couple of days. The best thing about the condo was the terrific view. I’ll never forget that view of the Pacific, the big cruise ships and long canoes and the sunsets were magical. We have sooo many pictures. The grounds around the development are beautifully landscaped and we used the pool and fitness center almost every day. We walked into town (12 minutes) often for shopping as well as a terrific luau the Royal Kona just down the street. Melanie was very easy to work with and made the rental process a pleasure. We will be back for sure. Thanks for everything Melanie.

We truly enjoyed staying in this great location. It was wonderful walking into town each day.The condo was lovely and very comfortable. The condo was well stocked for all of your needs in the kitchen not to mention beach towels, boogie boards and a great electric grill. We had a lot of entertainment watching whales in the sea from our lanai. The other guests at this location are very friendly. The pool and fitness room are both great as well. We had a terrific time here and hope to come back again! Thank you Melanie for everything :)

Lovely condo, close to town without being in the middle of the nightlife. Friendly neighbors. A family community. Condo owner provided many of the beach toys needed for fun. Nice view, 2nd floor.

This was our 10th vacation on the Big Island, and one of our favorite locations. The property was beautiful well cared for and we felt at home. The amenities were all there. The short walk 5 minutes to downtown Kona and all of its activities made for enjoyable short trips with much to do. We have recommended it to our friends. From the views atop the location we could see the Cruise ships coming into port, the daily fishing boats taking their passenger out each morning, the outriggers digging their way into port each morning, coffee on the deck, and relaxing with unbeatable sunsets each day.
