About Jim Purdy

Both of us grew up in mountain towns but now live in Seattle, WA. We split our free time between San Juan Island and Kona and enjoy scuba, running and pretty much all outdoor activities.

Jim Purdy purchased this house in 2008

Why Jim Purdy chose Alli Heights

We looked at over 60 homes and when we found this we knew immediately we had found the perfect spot. It is very private as it backs up to undeveloped real estate and you wake up to amazing song birds and views as far as you can see. What we love most is you are only minutes from town yet enjoy total privacy in a setting that feels like a resort.

What makes this house unique

16 foot sliding door creates that indoor/outdoor feeling and the perfect elevation of 450 feet means you almost always have a warm kona breeze flowing through the house. You can enjoy the amazing sunset every night by the pool with a Mai Tai and appetizers on the lanai. We almost always have fresh fish on the barbecue for dinner.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. Very clean and nicely decorated. Great ocean view from the living room, kitchen, and patio. Neighborhood was very quiet. We saw whales from the patio. The owners were easy to work with and they quickly responded to any questions. Thanks for a great experience in beautiful Hawaii.

Million Dollar View I just wish the house was as nice.

  • 2 of 5

It's not very clean. The walls, window sills and bedding need attention. The sofa was stained. The outdoor space was beautiful. We spent most of our time out there but the pool was too cold to swim and enjoy. We were very disappointed. Getting the grill to work was a challenge but after a trip to the store we were able to purchase a better lighter helping us to get it working. We loved the location as we were close to all of our favorite places to visit on the island. We love Kona and the people just wish our stay would have been in a better place.

Peaceful location for a great vacation on the Big Island

  • 4 of 5

Our family loved staying at this house during our vacation Dec-Jan '18 holiday break. The location is in a very nice, quiet, peaceful neighborhood. Easy trip to the beaches and restaurants. The floor plan is ideal for a family - if one goes to bed early and others stay up, it is a spacious house so night owls were fine to enjoy their space. We enjoyed the outdoor space all day and evenings watching the sunsets and looking for whales in the mornings. It is a well stocked home. Plenty of towels and probably everything a family might need during your stay. Very clean and comfortable. The pool is not heated so be prepared to cool off in a chilly pool. The sound system was so great (I want to add the same system at my house) I would stay here again. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Wish we could have stayed longer!

  • 4 of 5

You can’t beat the view at sunset from the lanai or the family room! Felt completely relaxed the whole time and we had all the room we needed. Would love to know what type of bed was in the master because I had never slept better than that whole week. Would love to stay here again!

Waypoint Properties presents Lani Kai at Alii Heights which sits just above Kailua-Kona and offers 180 degree view of the bluest ocean you will ever see. Enjoy your view from a very private lanai which includes a salt water pool with both shaded and sun drenched lanai areas. Friends have named it the 'little resort' they don't want to leave.
