Welcome to the Kona Billfisher! The Kona Billfisher is located on the southern edge of the village of Kailua-Kona, on the island of Hawaii. The Kona Billfisher is walking distance to shops, restaurants, clubs, and many other activities. The village stretches for a total of one mile from the King Kamehameha Hotel on the north to the Royal Kona Resort on the south, and provides almost any amenity that a visitor might need or want.
The Kona Billfisher is a 65-unit facility. This resort was one of the first timeshares in the state of Hawaii and is one of very few timeshares where ownership is a simple fee and includes 1/12 of a title to a single unit. Out units are great for families, couples, and groups. We hope you enjoy your stay at the Kona Billfisher and experience a vacation marked by the beautiful Kailua-Kona coast, just a short stroll away from the Billfisher.
