Mom’s Condo – it’s a steal!

Tag: Updates
Sep 24th, 2007

Aloha All,

My mom has her condo listed for sale. Mom REALLY wants to sell her condo. It was listed originally for $359,000, which was a pretty good price at the time. She has dropped the price a lot – now it is only $309,000, which is less than she paid for it two years ago.


It’s a charming condo, very tidy, with lots of extras. It has two bedrooms and two baths, air conditioners, ceiling fans, and more. The kitchen is bright and cheery, and is open to the living room so you can entertain while you are cooking. It is in Alii Lani, which is located right across the street from the ocean on Alii Drive. Alii Lani has two pools with hot tubs and BBQ areas, and is close to beaches and all the conveniences of Kailua Kona, and the resort area of Keauhou. The maintenance fees are relatively low – Alii Lani has some of the lowest maintenance fees of any condos in Kona.


We lived in Alii Lani for a couple of years when we first moved to Kona. It was nice – we used the pool a lot, and there is a road that runs in a circle through the complex where I would walk every night (I think once around is a little less than ½ mile. Many of the residents take walks at night — you just do laps until you are worn out.) It is also easy to walk or run on Alii Drive (it is two miles into downtown Kailua Kona), especially first thing in the morning when the weather is cooler.


We made a lot of good friends at Alii Lani. We got to know many of our neighbors when we went to the pool, or when we cooked our dinner at the barbeques.

    Hi Monica,

    What a lucky lady your mom, to have you as her agent. Sometimes people think we’re not personally affected by the market, but as you can see by this example, we are all affected.

    You have presented the property very well and make it look attractive. I hope you get someone who will appreciate the condo and enjoy it as much as you and your family have!

    Aloha, Mike
