  • Everything you need and nothing more


    Staying in #231 at the Islander Inn was great for us and our week on the Big Island. It's probably not a fit if you're looking for luxury, but the unit was just fine with everything we needed, the location can't be beat, the pool is nice, and the price is right.


    -While it is small, the studio has just about everything you need for a nice stay: Kitchen is well equipped, the closet had all sorts of things, including beach chairs and an umbrella, there was a large TV, comfy couch, etc.

    -Lanai/deck is very nice and the pool is great for sunning/swimming, and is convenient to the unit

    -Bed was comfortable and it was very quiet - we slept well.

    -Amazing location - so close to everything in Kailua Kona, we walked places a lot! Beaches and other activities were a short drive away.


    -Saw one cockroach (ew!)

    -No dishwasher - we did a lot of dishes since we were eating meals in the unit pretty frequently

    -No elevator

    Very small and basic. Limited parking. No extra blanket if you want to run the AC, who’s controls are hard to reach high up. Kitchen sink drains poorly. Good location.

    A very quiet location about 10 minutes from town. Beautiful trees and foliage.

  • Parking issue and unwelcome


    There are three buildings (3 floors each) in the complex and it has less than 30 parking spaces. The front office know that until you move in and ask again.. then they tell you can park on the busy street that you have hard time to cross it... the owner of the unit just worried about they put in big investment, so a list of chores will put on couple place to ensure you will do it. There has no Welcome atmosphere at all. The hallway light is broken, bathroom door can't be closed and next to kitchen..

    The place is in very good location but there are many other choices in the same area. I won't go back to this place again.

    Hi Pikwah, we truly value the experience of our guests, and we're genuinely sorry if your recent stay was not as welcoming as we strive for it to be. Following up on your feedback, we connected with the homeowner who wished to address the concerns:
    - There are #51 parking spaces available. While not every unit has a reserved spot due to the central downtown Kailua Kona location and the historic nature of the building, there is ample street parking across from the building and a sizable public parking lot just 150 yards down the road.
    - We acknowledge that our accommodations don't include room service to keep the pricing reasonable. Guests are kindly asked to manage their daily trash disposal and dish cleaning, especially if they choose to prepare meals in the condo. A collection station conveniently located 30 yards from the reception makes this process convenient. However, we are more than willing to arrange room service for a fee if requested.
    - We regret any inconvenience caused by the hallway light or the sliding door issue. A quick email or phone call would have allowed us to swiftly address these concerns. The sliding door, which requires delicate handling, is being replaced with a modern door on hinges to ensure a smoother experience for our guests.
    - Your comfort is paramount to us, and we genuinely appreciate your feedback. We encouraged open communication during your stay to promptly address any issues and enhance your overall experience.
    - We eagerly look forward to hosting many more delighted travelers in the future. If you have any further concerns or if there's anything we can do to make amends, please don't hesitate to reach out.
