Kailua Kona Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2-story, 4 bedroom, 3 bath, Sleeps 8 comfortably.

Spectacular ocean and beach front home with an incredible rare location. Our vacation home is close to everything (town, shops, beach, boogie boarding, surfing, snorkeling, harbor, activities) yet private for your relaxing stay at your beach home-away-from-home.

We have air conditioning and a washer and dryer, and all the other amenities for your hale-away-from-hale.

Relaxing, private, and incredible views!: Our town home is located on the ocean side of the famous Ali'i Drive. Our home is so close to the ocean, you can toss a shell from the lanai and hit water. We have two three-sided lanais that offer incredible views of the ocean. The sound of the surf in front of the condo is so relaxing and if you look, you can see fish in the waves!

There are dolphins and many other sea creatures (human too) that pass by daily. We have a special little known beach just a few hundred feet away that honu visit through out the day.

Our home is ideal for couples or families and is decorated in traditional Hawaiian decor.

You cannot beat this view from three-sided lanais. The fourth side of the lanais are all glass sliding doors so that you can also enjoy the same ocean view from the inside! You will enjoy spectacular sunsets every night year round. During the peak season, whales swim and often breach right in front of the condo which is fun to watch from the lanais. You will also see dolphins year round.

We are close to all you could ever want to do in Kona!

Close by is a small private cove with a sandy beach that is kid friendly, shallow and protected. Turtles live there and they are very friendly and love to come swim up to you!! They are protected so please do not touch!

One of the most incredible snorkeling spots on the Big Island is about a mile or so away with easy access for all ages and snorkeling levels. It is actually known throughout the world for one of the best snorkeling and diving spots that can be found.

Our condo is located close to everything you need: downtown Kailua-Kona shops and restaurants, snorkeling, surfing, diving, boating, tons of water fun activities, golf, sandy name it!

Enjoy exploring any part of the Big Island and still be able to go home afterwards to the place where the Ancient Royals knew where to go to truly vacation. There is a reason they chose Kona. There is a reason we chose our home. Both are magical and unique locations that are difficult to find. We love our guests to share what we have found too! Great times with family and friends in a wonderful place creating special memories that last a lifetime.

About Geri Smith

Our home is very special to our family. We have owned, loved and cared for our Kona hale for over ten years to enjoy with family and friends along with sharing it with others like you.

Geri Smith purchased this townhome in 2003

Why Geri Smith chose Kailua Kona

Our home is located in a very small complex of owners that all know each other well. We take pride in our home to be simple yet extravagant enough to be a unique and wonderful experience for your time spent in Kona. Reunions, weddings, and family time are the best times spent here.

What makes this townhome unique

Our unique location is perfect and large enough to get together with family, friends, or to celebrate special occasions. Our location also offers a wonderful place to take unforgettable photos together. Photographers actually bring people to our beach for their photo shoots.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your Hawaiian hale & wonderous view! This is our third stay during the past six years and we love it and the memories created here more than words can say. Even the whales came back to visit yesterday & today to say Merry Christmas! From our ohana to you, Mahalo and Aloha Nui Loa.

We spent a very pleasent week in August 2005 and found everything to be exceptional. The accomadations, the view of the ocean and the sunsets couldn't have been better. Making all the arrangements with April was extreamly easy and she was most helpful with every concern I had. I would definitly like to stay at this location in the future.

Most Beautiful Spot on the Island!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay in Kona and Geri's home was absolutely perfect for our multi-generational group of 7! This house and the views are even better than the photos depict and the location is very convenient. The house is so welcoming and comfortable we would have been happy spending our entire week on the lanais watching the ocean! For those days we ventured around the island, we found everything we needed at the house for our day trips including beach towels, water shoes, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, coolers, straw mats, and extra flip flops! Restaurants in Kailua-Kona are a 5 min. drive away and there are grocery stores about 10 min. away. Parking at the house is very convenient; we had room for 2 rental cars. Thanks to Geri's tips on parking in town we never had difficulty finding a spot to park there either. We enjoyed the turtles at the turtle cove near the house and they truly do swim right up to you! One nudged my daughter on her leg! We took Geri's advice on restaurants and activities and all of her recommendations were great. There is plenty of room inside the home to relax (although we mostly spent our time on the lanais) and the bedrooms and bathrooms are all clean and spacious. I would love to visit the Big Island again and if I am lucky enough to do so I would absolutely stay here again. You will NOT regret one moment of your stay at this property.

My husband & I took a lovely trip with his parents & sister this past Feb to explore & enjoy the Big Island. We had considered staying at a hotel...but to have more room and options to make the trip more economical, we opted for a home rental instead. There were SO many to choose from, we even made a spreadsheet to help with our choice.After we narrowed our selection down I just kept coming back to this gorgeous property! The photos, the location-it seemed to be all we could have wanted. Let me tell you it was MORE!!!! The photos do the property complete justice! With 5 of us being on the trip it more than offered enough room! Our family greatly enjoyed the space, the gorgeous lanais, the very friendly, safe surroundings,as well as the close proximity to Kona. My husband & I walked numerous times to & from town. It is a quick 2.5 miles one way. It was an easy walk all paved.The kitchen was more than adequately supplied with very nice pots/pans etc. We happily cooked at least one meal a day there. The condo is also very clean & well maintained! We had no issues whatsoever. The beds were very comfy! It was SO nice having an in condo new washer and dryer as we were out exploring daily on our 12 day stay &certainly needed access to laundry cleaning capabilities! Our family agreed hands down the crown jewel of this property are the ocean over looking lanais! We had breakfast and/or dinner daily out there and would wind down the evenings enjoying whales jumping,dolphins playing,or just the amazing sound of the waves! So peaceful and just heavily! I frequently even did yoga on the lanais & the stars were spectacular out there as well! My husband's parents also greatly enjoyed the HUGE master suite! It was amazing! The other rooms were also very nice and it worked out we all pretty much as couples and our sister had our own bathroom. (Couples shared, sister got her own) which added to the sense of privacy & personal space. Something sharing a hotel room would certainly not have provided.

This was our 1st time renting a private home. Because of our great experience it will not be our last. It's always a little scary to trust the people on the other end, but if the property wasn't enough to dazzle you. .....the property owners should be! Geri & her husband were fantastic and so sweet!They really put our minds to ease immediately and we're so friendly, fair, & helpful! It was a joy renting from them!Rent this place! Don't miss out on the vacation of a lifetime!

A perfect and beautiful spot for vacation

  • 5 of 5

For a family of eight (8) you couldn't ask for a more spacious and accommodating home. All the rooms had all you needed to feel right at home. The view of the ocean was breathtaking and watching the sunset every night was awesome. The beaches were close by as were places to visit and sights to see.

The home was clean, spacious, and we would recommend, and have recommended the home for others to call and line up a vacation with Geri and family. Will line up another vacation with them in the future and Mahalo to everyone.
