About Bob Murphy
We met and were married in Hawaii over 50 years ago. After raising our four sons we have been frequent visitors to the islands and have long dreamed of owning property in Hawaii. We live on the east coast a stone's throw from Gloucester Harbor - the oldest commercial fishing harbor in the US. Our plan is to eventually spend our winters in Hawaii and summers in Massachusetts.
Bob Murphy purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Bob Murphy chose Kailua-Kona
Several years ago we spent a month in Kona on Alii Drive. We walked past Alii Lani many times and admired the look and feel of the property - the buildings are attractive, the grounds are beautiful, and the location is perfect. When we made the decision to buy Alii Lani was number one on our list.
What makes this Condo unique
Alii Lani is our second home - we spend 4 months a year in Hawaii. We have tried to anticipate all the needs of our guests so that they feel at home immediately. We have a very complete library of guides and resources. All your needs for relaxing on the wonderful beaches are provided so you are ready to head out in comfort without heading to Walmart.

Perfect home away from home
Excellent location. Very well equipped. Comfortable layout for our family of 4. Quick response from property managers when we had an issue (the only issue during our stay) with the newly purchased washing machine. Would definitely recommend.
NIce place, great location
Well appointed property. Great location.
Sensational place to stay
We stayed here during our visit to Hawaii for my husband to compete in the Ironman World champs. It was a sensational place to stay for our family of 4, as it was slightly removed from the chaos of "town" but still close by and central to everything we wanted to do. The house had everything we needed and more and really felt like home by the end. It became our little slice of homely paradise that we really enjoyed coming home to after big days exploring the island or lazy days enjoying the close by ocean pool or the beach.
So glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay! Nice to hear that it "felt like home", that is what we strive for! Keep us in mind for the future. Mahalo nut loa. Bob and Barbara
Our month long vacation during the month of June and July 2017
Last days in the condo and we've enjoyed our stay. Already wrote about our stay in your guest comment book in your condo.
Close to town and our favorite snorkeling bay. We have visited the island on several occasions in the past and this has become our favorite place to stay.
Visited points all over the island and always enjoy all the sights. Volcano, lava tube, Hilo, waterfalls, Parker Ranch, the beaches and everything in between.
The condo was comfortable and everything we needed in the kitchen was there. Beds were comfortable and a number of beach items were in the closet for use.
The condo faces the roadway but the upside is the fact we had a partial view of the ocean. We live in Southern California so Hawaiian traffic passing by the condo was a fraction of what we're used to so passing cars were never an annoyance.
Again we've enjoyed our stay and we're already talking of our return trip in a couple of years as we're committed to an Alaskan trip next year.
A fantastic place to stay on the Big Island!
We love Bob and Barbara’s Big Island home. We have stayed twice in their unit at Alii Lani when holidaying in Kona and we’ll be back in the future. Bob and Barbara are very professional, helpful and very easy to deal with.
Alii Lani is a lovely, well kept and managed complex on Alii Drive. It boasts two lovely pool areas with BBQ’s, and the grounds and gardens are immaculately kept.
The 2 bed, 2 bathroom unit is on the second floor overlooking Alii Drive and has a spacious lanai - there is always an interesting parade to enjoy, lovely breezes to catch and beautiful sunsets to amaze! Love the rocking chair to relax in with a good book or to have an afternoon siesta. Bob has a great selection of books in the unit, and there is a library in the common room in the main pool area.
Bob and Barbara have thought of everything.Their unit is a home away from home and the hawaiian decor creates a great holiday mood. It has a fully equipped kitchen, great TV’s and entertainment system, good WiFi, A/C, fans in all rooms, and super comfortable beds! Everything is there to enjoy the nearby beaches - snorkeling gear, body boards, beach towels, chairs and a cooler.
The location is great! The unit is within walking distance to downtown Kona and close to beaches and shoreline access points. If you have a car and want to explore the Big Island and all its attractions, the major roadways of the island are easily accessible from Alii Lani.
Bob and Barbara’s unit is comfortable, convenient, and well located, the perfect place to stay for a fabulous vacation on the Big Island!
Alii Drive is a seven mile shoreline road which begins at the Kona Pier and ends with beautiful Keahau Bay. There are shoreline accesses all along the way. A variety of beaches provide for all kinds of water activities from surfing to snorkeling and just plain soaking up the sun.
