The sunny coast of Kailua-Kona has long attracted Hawaiian royalty, and you'll see why when you book Big Island vacation rentals at Alii Cove. Located just across the street from Honl’s Beach, Alii Cove is just a few minutes south of Kailua-Kona village, putting you close to Big Island's irresistible beaches, abundant dining and shopping options as well as history and heritage.
Offering 2 and 3-bedroom condo rentals that sleep up to six guests, Alii Cove in Kona greets you with a promise of a tropical getaway worthy of Hawaiian royalty. All Alii Cove condos for rent are spacious and include full-kitchens, dining areas, and large lanais. Onsite amenities include a large saline pool, kiddies pool, and large jetted hot tub. You’ll find an outdoor BBQ area near the pool that includes tables, chairs, and a sink area. For those looking to work off a little steam in the gym, Alii Cove has you covered there as well with their fitness center!
Look out to the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific from your spacious and private lanai as Hawaiian nobility might have surveyed the same in the past. Choose a west-facing oceanview rental unit for a front-row seat of the sunset skies painted in pink, orange, and lavender. Don’t blink, and you just might glimpse that elusive green flash! In season, keep a sharp eye out for migrating humpback whales. Passing cruise ships also make regular appearances.
Invite the outdoors in when you open the curtains of your condo rental to reveal large picture windows that let natural light into your living space. Turn on the A/C in the living room, or open the sliding glass doors to breathe a lungful of the refreshing ocean breeze. Let the ebb and flow of the tide mark the passage of island time.
Vacation Rentals at Alii Cove
Sink into a plush sofa and put your feet up with a good book, or turn on the flat-screen TV to catch up with your favorite program. Connect to the internet to catch up with friends and family back home, or leave the outside world for a moment and turn your gaze seaside with hot coffee or cold drink in hand.
Downtown Kona is a short drive away so you can always find a place to dine, but if you like to prepare your own meals, the full kitchen is stocked with top-of-the-line appliances to help you serve your favorites hot off the grill. There are plenty of seating options, too, allowing you to enjoy mealtimes indoors in the dining area, on the breakfast bar, or out in the sunny lanai. The common BBQ grills also let you enjoy meals outdoors and socialize with other guests.
Choose three-bedroom townhomes to take advantage of high ceilings that the two-story interior showcases. You get plenty of natural light coming in and wonderful views just outside your window. The open layout of the vacation rentals interior is naturally partitioned by breakfast bars that separate the kitchen from the nearby living space. Bright and light colors lend the interior a roomier feel and make an excellent backdrop for eye-catching island-themed décor and accents.
At the onsite fitness center, prime your muscles for plenty of adventurous activities later on. Hit the links at the nearby golf course, or go for one of the many water sports on offer. Take a few laps in the pool to warm up for snorkeling or surfing later. Don’t leave out the kids, as there’s one specially assigned for them too. At the end of the day, soothe your aches and pains with a well-deserved dip in the hot tub.
Whether you seek an active vacation or a relaxing retreat, you’ll find plenty of options close by. Perhaps a serene stroll around the quaint town would replenish you with much-needed inspiration. The 200-year old Mokuaikaua Church, one of the oldest Christian churches in Hawaii, makes a fitting introduction. A look around the interior of Hulihe'e Palace will also take you back in time to when it was a summer vacation home for Hawaiian royalty. Inside, you’ll find Victorian furniture, ornaments, and artifacts associated with the 'ali'i.'
For invigorating activities on the water, there are abundant options to consider whatever your watersports of choice: scuba diving, surfing, or deep-sea fishing are all within stone’s throw of Alii Cove apartments. And if your sport of choice requires a squat board, you're right where it was invented. The sometimes massive swells inspired the inventor to ride a boogie board in the early ’70s, and Honl’s Beach celebrates this tradition ever since.
If you prefer an impromptu picnic, Honl’s Beach is as convenient as it is close. Beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, and toys for kids are provided by Alii Cove, so you can just go and throw down a towel on the sandy shore.
After sundown, enjoy a night out in town with a luau, a visit to the art galleries, or street shopping along the water's edge. Sample a menu of international cuisines or local favorites, fresh seafood and farm-to-cup Kona coffee included. If casting your cares away means enjoying cocktails offshore, a sunset cruise launching from the Kailua Pier might be more to your liking.
Getting out on the water also lets you fish in some of the best deep-sea fishing zones in Hawaii, just a few miles off the coast of Big Island. Closer to the coast, a sightseeing tour on a boat could get you a safe distance from the active lava flows along Big Island's southern coast. For a more immersive experience, set your sights a few miles down the road to Keauhou. The waters here are rich in plankton that manta rays feed on. Put on goggles and fins and swim with them at night. Boat tours leaving Kona will get you a respectable distance from these gentle creatures.
There are still so many things you can do just on this side of Big Island alone, so why not stay longer and scratch the surface a bit deeper?
