About the Owner

Marianna has been living in Hawaii since 1994.

She started and operated the Rainbow Plantation B&B in Captain Cook and sold this in 2012 and moved right below the Rainbow Plantation where she lives in harmony with her animals.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has been our third visit to Marianna's condo at Kona Alii and we also stayed

in her condo at the Banyan Tree.

Both condos have been well kept and one can feel the love and care in both of them.

Kona Alii is still our favorite because of the location alone.

Since we have stayed on the Big Island may times we are mostly interested in relaxing at the condo, walking into town for meals, coffee and to shop for fruits and veggies at the farmers market.

The condo is very, very comfortable and one can watch the waves from the deck as well as people strolling by without them watching us.

The pool and the grilling area is very nice as well.

Thai has been a perfect vacation without the use of a car. Each day we walked over to the farmers market for some fresh produce, we checked our e mail right next to the condo and we even played tennis whenever we felt like it in the public tennis court. Jeff would just walk out ot the condo, looked over to the tennis court and came back to to get me and the rackets, great.

We took the tour bus around the island

which also stopped by the Volcano.

Thank you for lsetting us stay in this wonderful, spaciour and comfortable condo.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jeff and Helena. Yes, I agree that this is a perfect location when you don't drive. Kailua-Kona is such a lovely town to walk around in. I also enjoy the little beach right across from the condo. Please return Best wishes Marianna

Great condo to stay in! Amazing location and a lovely owner, Marianna. We loved staying here, especially with the ocean view and constant sea breeze. We'll definitely be back!

Great view- comfortable- well appointed

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice condo with an amazing ocean front. We had breakfast every morning on the lanai watching the ocean waves. Easy walking to restaurants and shops. There is a lovely pool on the property. The main road goes right by the condo and the traffic noise gets fairly loud at night but the ocean waves help mask that. No a/c but lots of fans provided.

Can I stay forever?

  • 5 of 5

Of all the places I visited in Hawaii, this was my favorite place. Marianna was great to work with, the view is as spectacular as it shows in the pictures. The condo was so tastefully decorated. I highly recommend this place. Honestly, I was so comfortable there, I could stay forever. So glad that there were two bathrooms. Living couch turned into comfortable, thick, leather futon bed (nothing cheap about anything in this place). If you choose to stay here, you will not be disappointed. (If you don't have the homeaway app on your phone, let Marianna know so that you can communicate via regular email. Also, if you need wifi, make sure the password is clear to you.)

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location and perfect accommodations. We will stay again when we visit Kona. Everything in the Condo was just what we needed. We didn't need the rental car for other than exploring the Island, other than that everything is within walking distance. Marianna was a great to work with while doing our reservation, just wish we would of had time to visit your farm. Thank you :-)

Exactly where your want to be!!!

  • 5 of 5

If we were able, we would happily return to stay at this lovely accommodation over and over again! Yes, it's that perfect! Surounded by everything needed for a fun time in a lively and active Village. It would be even more enjoyable for us since we've seen all of the island sites and there works be no need for a rental car. It just seemed wrong to have to leave in order to explore the island. The view is outstanding and mesmerizing! We found everything we needed to live as if we were in our own home. Marianna is a very caring owner totally committed and concerned with being sure we were happy and content. Too bad we live so far away.
