Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)
About Rick Rosa
We just had some sashimi and garlic bread, watched the sunset, and we couldn't be happier!
Rick Rosa purchased this Studio in 2003
Why Rick Rosa chose Kailua-Kona
This studio condo was a dream come true for my wife and I when we purchased it in February 2003 from Linda and Grant Baseman. We feel that it is the nicest studio in the Kona Islander complex.

We could not have been happier with our stay. The condo was spotless. We thought the location was the best on the big island. Within walking distance of so many shops and great restaurants. The bed was comfortable, and we had everything we needed. We loved that we could walk a couple minutes down the road to the farmers market for fresh fruit. Everything about our trip to Hawaii was fantastic, and this condo was a big part of it.
Thanks for the kind thoughts! We hope you are able to come back soon!
Cheers! Rick and Colleen
I recommend this location because it honestly made our stay in Hawaii awesome. Being in the center of Kona made getting food simple after a hot day in the sun. This also meant that we didn't have to worry about finding parking. The apartment is small, but remember you're not going to spend much time there. We traveled with a 1.5 year old and the property manager did a great job 'baby proofing' the apartment prior to our arrival (We didn't even ask). The complex where the apartment is located is clean with a pool. We were worried about parking but wasn't an issue during our stay. You can clearly see the ocean from the patio. Accessing the ocean is easy - there is a small spot where you can cross the street and go for a dip.
The kitchen has the basic things you need -
Bowls - plates - hot plate - microwave - small frig. There is also a farmers market almost next door where you can buy fresh fruit and souvenirs.
The only thing I wish the apartment had was a King size bed (it has a queen) and a desk (I just worked from the coffee table).
I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to the Big Island!
Thanks for your thoughts! Hope you can get
back to the Big Island sometime soon!
Cheers! Rick and Colleen

Thank you for your thoughts! Hope you return soon!
Magical paradise by the water !
Everything about this property is amazing ! The owners take such good care of the place and are welcoming and kind. Place has everything you can think of and more !View from lanai is breath taking . Easy to get around town from here. Staff at Islander very helpful as well ! We plan to come back next summer.
Thanks so much for your kind thoughts! Hope you return soon!

Great Location with Ocean View!
Our 1-week stay in this gem was the icing on the cake at the end of our month-long stay in the islands! Rick & Connie's condo is right across the street from the ocean. (Yes, you can see and hear waves!) There are oodles of restaurants and shopping within easy walking distance. And the unit’s grounds are kept in immaculate condition…they even light tiki torches every night! Plus there’s a pool and new hot tub available. The condo itself is well maintained with all the amenities (i.e. – coffee maker, hair dryer, cable tv, wifi) that we wanted and a few extra (i.e. - boogie board) that my wife and I may try the next visit. Yes, parking is a bit limited but we had no problem finding a space. We definitely plan on a return trip to this oasis in paradise! Mahalo!!!
Thanks so much for your Kind thoughts! Hope you return soon!
We are 29 days away from enjoying it ourselves! Cheers! Rick and Colleen Rosa
Perfect Kona Getaway
Perfect spot for us, lots of extras around the condo available like beach chairs, beach towels, microwave, good sized “mini” fridge, plus plenty of kitchen items which we appreciated. There is no better deal in Kona than this spot with it’s proximity to downtown and ocean view. I’ll never stay in a hotel in Kona again, this was so much more comfy. Cute decor and very clean, thank you for sharing your great spot!
Alice: Thanks so much for your thoughts!
You seem to enjoy our tiny little place as much as we do!
We just don't get there as often as we would like!
Retiring 11/25/2020 God Willing so we will go there
whenever we get the Itch! Hurry Back! Cheers! Rick
