ON THE OCEAN WITH FRONT ROW SEATING FOR DOLPHIN SIGHTINGS

Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Aloha. Hale Kona Kai is known for its location. It is a small, quiet, well-kept complex within easy walking distance of Kona’s downtown. It’s surfside, about the closest you can get to the ocean unless you are swimming. Many of our guests return year after year.

Our unit, #202, is on the south end of the building providing additional privacy away from the pool and away from the other wing. Most of what you see is the ocean. Hale Kona Kai’s units are one-bedroom and the property is entirely non-smoking, with easy private high-speed internet access. Its proximity to the ocean makes it a wonderful place to kick back with a cool drink to enjoy nature’s many offerings oceanfront. If cooking doesn't feel like a vacation there are dozens of restaurants to choose from within walking distance and many more a short drive away.

Begin your day with breakfast on the lanai, watching a school of spinner dolphins swimming by---it is a fanciful show. Looking south you can also see the accomplished surfers. At lunchtime you will likely watch sea turtles sunning themselves on the lava rocks just feet below our lanai, and no one will want to miss the unobstructed view of the romantic sunset. You will not tire of the beautiful scenery throughout the day as it is ever changing. Many guests comment on their restful sleep as they are lured into the land of nod by the rhythms of the ocean surf.

This unit has been tastefully renovated and is well-maintained. It has a comfortable new king-sized bed, a fully-equipped kitchen, fresh paint, a fully tiled shower, and new appliances. It is decorated with a “spirit of aloha” and ready for your enjoyment with all the comforts of home. We leave the condo outfitted as we want to find it when we come to stay.

We have many repeat visitors year round. The building has a heated pool, reserved parking, an elevator, and on-site coin laundry facilities on each of the three floors.

There is so much to do on The Big Island. Here is a just a small list: swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, snorkeling, golfing, hiking, kayaking, walking, whale watching, scuba diving, biking, shopping, dining, and more. There is also great bird watching, botanic gardens and waterfalls to see, and don’t forget the many sacred Hawaiian ancient sites. If you’ve ever thought you’d like to see a volcano close up this is your chance! The Big Island has a little something for everyone and it never feels crowded.

The thing most people ask after visiting is when they can return.

Mahalo for viewing our listing we look forward to hearing from you.

Why The Owner chose Kailua Kona

We bought in this location because it is so close to the ocean and walking distance from so many great attractions. There is also a nice cross breeze making using the air conditioning optional.

What makes this condo unique

Most guests find it hard to leave the lanai, there is so much to see, dolphins, paddlers, surfers, turtles, distance swimmers, cruise ships, it's a changing landscape on the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Love the quiet and privacy here---will absolutely consider coming back again, great location, did not use the a/c as the breeze and fan was enough.

Oceanfront with A/C

  • 5 of 5
My two requirements when visiting the islands are oceanfront and A/C....for those few times one needs it. I have stayed in this unit three times and it brings the best that Kona offers at a reasonable price coupled with prime location for walking to restaurants as well as a base for sightseeing. I have recommended this property to others and they have not been disappointed.

Holiday in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
beautiful location. Clean unit. Very well stocked unit. Much appreciated. Very quiet place. Nice pool on the water. Since I was there a couple of nights by myself, I felt very safe with all the locks on the doors. It was absolutely perfect and I did not want to leave and cannot wait til I can go back.

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
This is our 3rd time staying at Hale Kona Kai and the 2nd in this unit. We will defiantly be back. It is a great home base. Close to some great beaches and you can walk down town to some great shops and restaurants. There is also Farmer's Market you can walk to with great fresh fruit and vegetables. The condo is well equipped with every thing you need for the beach including chairs and umbrella. You can't go wrong renting this condo for your next vacation!

Great location, quiet Very good

  • 4 of 5
I would give this a Very Good, if that were an option. Great location, off the bustling Alii Drive, so noise wasn't an issue (except for the breaking waves!). Easy walk into town for dinner or shopping Lovely view, we did get to see a few turtles right below our lanai! Sunsets were magnificent. Anne was helpful in providing info, and promptly returning the security deposit. The condo was clean and maintained, but could use some updating (the television, for example). The wifi worked great. The bed was very comfortable, as were the pillows. There was enough light in the living room, but the bedside lights could use higher wattages for reading (my pet peeve). We really appreciated the beach amenities...2 boogie boards, 2 really good beach towels, a large beach mat, and 2 chairs and an umbrella, plus a small cooler. We were provided 3 rolls of toilet paper and a partial roll of paper towels, plus a partial box of tissues (it would have been nice to have full boxes since we stayed a week). Plus, coffee filters, and some butter, spices, and saran wrap, ziploc bags, etc. So, overall some nice supplies. The dishware was all good, and clean. The bedroom closet was very nice, with alot of room for storage. The bathroom was slightly weird, but I imagine the reason the shower was elevated had to do with a remodeling issue. Nevertheless, the shower was spacious and worked well. The toilet did have a tendency to run (I forgot to tell Anne that!). The furniture was comfy and in good shape. However, there was a mustiness kind of smell that might be attributed to the location right on the water. I'm not sure, but it did compel me to purchase some air fresheners. And after opening the patio doors and getting some air movement, the odor seemed to lessen.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for staying with us. Yes, tropical life on the water does create some high humidity challenges & opening a window is always a good idea on the ocean. Glad you enjoyed your stay and the amenities we offered!

Great condo with breaking surf out your window

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. Very centrally located nearby the farmers market, cooffe shops, and Huggos which has local music, hula, and beachside dancing. Unit has all the needed supplies and includes some extras like boogy boards and umbrella. Nice pool and off main road - so quiet. You can't get closer to the ocean than this.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here in Feb. 2011 and enjoyed our vacation so much. Every day there was something new in the ocean in front of us, it was spectacular. Really enjoyed the amenities of the condo and the ease of booking it. Great location, loved every minute!
