The home is conveniently located close to many amenities which include a plethora of dining options (including the famous Sam Choy), a movie theater and shopping center, all within a five minute drive. Numerous resort amenities are available just to the South. The Keauhou Bay area offers great ocean access, scuba diving, and sailing, catamaran, fishing charters, sea kayaking and outrigger canoeing.
Just a few miles down the shoreline you will find Kahalu?u Beach State Park, famous for its encounters with the graceful green Hawaiian Sea Turtles. If you are seeking local markets and historical context, downtown Kailua-Kona is approximately a 10 minute drive for easy access to shopping, businesses, waterfront restaurants and hotels. Watch the people and the cruise ships come and go from the Kailua Pier. Visit the famous Farmer's Market. Enjoy a shave ice or a cup of Kona coffee, have a light snack or a gourmet meal, buy an inexpensive souvenir or a piece of fine art, book an activity, go for a swim or hang out on the many beautiful beaches. Up the coast is a busy marina with Hawaii's best scuba diving, big-game fishing, kayaking, dolphin and whale watching and other ocean activities. Ali'i Makai is conveniently located, a great home base to explore the many wonders of the Big Island including Volcano National Park, Mauna Kea Observatory, coffee and macadamia nut farms, artist communities, and more!
|FABULOUS!! WE LOVED THE ALI'I MAKAI!!!|
We absolutely loved this property and will stay here again when we come back. I do agree with some of the other reviews as far as the air conditioning in the one back room by the rock wall as there is not a lot of air movement but we made it work. We had coffee every morning looking at the ocean, enjoyed the pool everyday, explored the Big Island and finished our day watching the sunset from the fabulous deck before heading for dinner. Thank you for an unforgettable stay!
