We purchased our condo January 2010 and had it completely renovated and redecorated. EVERYTHING IS BRAND NEW! Even the windows are new. We also own the 2 bedroom unit next door and the 2 bedroom unit above. See VRBO #311117 & 437284). Please take the time to read all the 5 star guest reviews on our 3 units. All units together make for a great multi-family vacation. We want it to be very nice because this will be our home away from home whenever we can escape to the Big Island for some rest and relaxation...
Our unit is a ground level, small 2 bedroom, 1 bath condominium in a low rise complex located one mile south of downtown Kailua-Kona. Even if you don't need the second bedroom it is a nice room to read or take an afternoon nap, and we have priced our unit to provide affordable vacation accommodations. Both bedrooms have new sliding doors to the patio/lanai and both bedrooms have new queen size beds. The lanai has brand new tile and patio furniture and is a great place to enjoy dinner after a busy vacation day at the beach or sightseeing!! Relax and watch a movie on the new flat screen TV in the living room. We provide free wireless internet (bring your laptop), but bring your cell phone as there is no phone in the unit. The updated kitchen is well equipped and has brand new stainless appliances. An assigned parking space is only 30 feet from the front door. Beach towels, coolers and lawn chairs are also provided for your beach days.
The Kona Shores is an ocean side complex centrally located on Alii Drive which is the oceanfront road that goes to Kailua-Kona. It is a short walk for shopping, dining, people watching or just to go down and have an evening cocktail. The Big Island has just about everything you could ask for...Great Beaches...Deep-Sea Fishing...Golfing...Snorkeling...Diving...an Active Volcano and Much, Much More!
We hope you enjoy your vacation at our condo and we know that each day will bring you a new and wonderful experience on the Big Island of Hawaii. Be sure to explore all that the island offers!

We bought this condo in January 2010 in a small 80 unit complex. We have been visiting Hawaii for over 30 years, but only discovered the Big Island 8 years ago. We have not been back to Maui or O'ahu since we fell in love with the Big Island. The friendly attitude of the people (both local and tourists) make this a great place to visit. We are both retired and are looking forward to spending time at our new place with the kids and grandchildren. Doug & Evie
Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 2010
"Our visit to the Big Island was wonderful. We stayed in Hilo for 5 days and in Kona at your place for 5 days. We enjoyed your condo very much. My mother, who is a chef, especially appreciated the updated kitchen and appliances available. The place was very clean and we appreciated the little details you provided, like the books on things to do, beach towels/chairs, ironing board etc...."
What a wonderful stay we had. This was our first trip to Hawaii and we can't wait to go back. This unit was recommended by a friend who stayed and we were not disappointed. It had everything you could ask for. The location was perfect for everything we wanted to see & do. The pool overlooking the ocean was great. We would definitely recommend this unit. It was perfect.
The owner, the unit, the caretakers, the people....all wonderful!!! This was our first trip to Hawaii and look forward to going back! The unit was equipped with everything we needed right down to beach towels, chairs and cooler! We even had coffee supplied for us!!!! The location of the unit was perfect, we could walk to downtown in minutes, everything was so handy! There was easy access to the unit, in and out. The price was definitely perfect! Even though the unit is on a main road, we couldn't hear any road noise (very important). The unit was so comfortable for us, very relaxing! Rosie and Mark are great, very helpful and always available!!!!! Doug answered all questions promptly! Would I recommend this unit to others?.....already have! Would stay here again? In a heartbeat! This unit was perfect for us!!!
This was our first time to the Big Island and staying here was perfect. The hosts were very responsive when scheduling our vacation and then followed up with us shortly before our arrival to ensure we were comfortable with the entry instructions. Everything went very smooth and we really liked how close the parking space is to the first floor unit. The other tenants were very friendly and we loved the pool overlooking the ocean. The unit had everything we could possibly need, for example, there was a cooler, lawn chairs and beach towels available making day trips to local beaches for bogie boarding and snorkeling very easy. We would definitely stay her again.
Very comfortable and well appointed place from which to explore the west side of the Big Island. I couldn't have asked for better, and the owner Doug was helpful, and super easy to deal with!
This was our 3rd time staying in this condo and hope to stay again. Everything is provided for you in the condo, it's clean, and the price is right too! It's close to shopping, restaurants and easy access to sight seeing. What more could you ask for?
We have recommended this condo as the place to stay on the Big Island'
We were two couples in our 70s that had the pleasure of staying at this loverly condo for 9 days. It is every thing you see in the pictures and very well kept. Doug advised us to get a rental from Thrifty as a means of exploring this wonderful island. The pick up of the rental was the only down side to a great stay. 3 hours in a que in the heat for an ordered car not a good start after a long flight from NZ. If only we new we could have joined there VIP club and got our car imediately! We ill next time.
Hawaii is a magnificent island to explore and the 9 days went so fast. Highly recommend this condo for location and comfort.
