Keauhou Condo Rental Photos and Description

1BR, 2BA, sleeps 4. Enjoy the view from our oceanside lanai. Best Value in Kona!

Watch the sun set over the Pacific ocean at this beautiful oceanfront resort!. Your vacation hideaway is a spacious one bedroom, two bath, first floor condo. The complex is beautifully landscaped, very well maintained, upscale and quiet. A large comfortable(really!) queen-size sofa bed in the living room makes the condominium cozy for two couples or one couple with children. The delightful ocean breezes and ceiling fans throughout will keep you cool and content. Layout allows cross ventilation so its very comfortable sleeping even with no ac. The condo has a bedroom lanai, as well as a spacious oceanside lanai off the living room with a wet bar and view of Heiea Bay.

This is our Hawaiian getaway which we offer as a vacation rental while back on the mainland. The Koa-wood kitchen is equipped with pots and pans, quality glassware and utensils, and all the usual small appliances. Parking is free, covered, and convenient. Also free WiFi wireless Internet in the condo and at the pools that can be used while looking out at the ocean and gardens.

Kanaloa is a gated community with a golf course (Kona CC), two top-notch tennis courts, 3 pools and spas. The complex is lovely very well maintained, beautifully landscaped, and feels more like a village than a condo development. This is a truly tropical paradise right along the Pacific ocean.

Living Space: Over 1000 square feet of living space, plus a bedroom lanai and a spacious living area lanai (with wet bar).

About Jim and Debbie Spilman

We've been visiting Hawai'i since 2000,and fell in love with the Kona Coast - the snorkeling, the coffee, the sunsets and the near-infinite activity choices all within a few miles!

Jim and Debbie Spilman purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jim and Debbie Spilman chose Keauhou

It seems like we looked at dozens of condos, from Keauhou Bay to downtown Kailua-Kona, Kanaloa at Kona 3402 was one of the first we saw, and became our benchmark. Spacious and comfortable, NIce ocean view from the lanai; steps to the clubhouse pool and tennis courts, and just a short 2 minute walk to the oceanfront pool. Away from the bustle of Kailua Village, but close enough to be convenient for restaurants, nightlife, etc.

What makes this condo unique

We think this is one of the best values in Kona - a roomy, comfortable condo, great view, quiet, well-kept complex with all the amenities, and minutes from any number of great beaches, snorkeling spots, restaurants and all kinds of island activities!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are enjoying our stay at your Condo. It is very beautiful here and the apartment is soooo nice. Glad it worked out last minute. We loved the place, The space over all is great and we love the amenities of Kanaloa.

A quiet oasis..... just what I needed

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at this condo and was fortunate to find it available for 16 days, as I was not in a position to book until December. The unit is spacious, clean, reasonably well equipped, particularly in linens and well situated in the resort. I have stayed at Kanaloa on two previous occasions and am eager to return.

I would caution however, that anyone with mobility issues will find the bathrooms a challenge in this suite, particularly the master ensuite . This was not a problem for me, but I still felt safer in the second bathroom shower as the step into the tub is not as high.

The owners were easy to deal with, and I had no major issues during my stay. What I did have I reported and had their assurance they would be addressed for the next clients.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review - we're very glad you enjoyed your stay. A little more info for other readers on the bathrooms - the master bath has an older style jacuzzi tub/shower, and the side wall of the tub is higher than the "normal" tub/shower in the hall bathroom.

“Welcome Home to One of the Best Kept Secrets of Kona!”

  • 5 of 5

Kanaloa - we have recommended this complex as a place to stay while visiting Kailua-Kona for almost 30 years. The property in Keauhou sits between the ocean and a golf course with a small bay bordering its' eastern edge. This unit is located on a courtyard that opens to that bay. The courtyard lanai looks out onto the water emphasizing the oceanfront feel of the condo. The décor is homey with island kitsch appointments, a comfortable setting with a "we love the islands" smile and a wink added into the mix. The owners have generously provided start-up and support supplies to enhance the coming home feel. Most of what a couple or a small family could need to quickly start and thoroughly enjoy the outdoor activities available in Kona is provided. You need more supplies? Try the Keauhou Center shopping plaza.

This shopping and entertainment center is a short (6 blocks, about 3 min) drive or a challenging walk (all up hill, about 20 min) away. Shop at KTA (great Mac Nut Danish and take out coffee) or CVS, get a pizza at Bianelli's, sample some wonderful crepes or a cup of specialty coffee at Peaberry and Gallette, or pick-up a reasonably priced meal at L&L Hawaiian Barbeque. The center also has a great bookstore and a made in Hawaii collectibles shop. Lest we forget, Sam Choy's is there as is a multi-screen movie house.

This unit is a wonderful base of operations for doing anything on the island (15 min from Kona, 30 min from the Place of Refuge historical site and a number of coffee farms and processors, an hour from South Point, the Green Sand beach, the town of Naalehu or going north Waimea cowboy country and two hours from the Volcano). Beaches are a short drive or a long walk away (try the ones at the old airport). Everything you want is accessible from here, not to mention the 3 pools, 2 tennis courts and public outdoor grills available on property.

The property is quiet, comfortable and accessible. This unit has been set-up to be one of the best units on the property (we have stayed at a few). The owners provide guests with a library of books including a number of Hawaiiana titles and more than a few Hawaiian themed DVD's to get you into the Aloha Spirit. You can lunch looking out on the water and truly immerse yourself in paradise. Best of all, you can have all of this at a reasonable price.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unit. We recommend it to you. We will reserve it again, unless you get there first.

A wonderful, peaceful place with a great view!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is a wonderful condo. It can get a bit warm during the day and an air conditioning would make this place absolutely perfect! It is VERY clean, well maintained, nicely furnished, comfortable bed and everything needed was available to make our stay very enjoyable. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai playing our guitars with a beautiful view. It was completely safe, not even a need to lock the door. The grounds are kept beautifully and there is an adult pool that overlooks the ocean. The owners were very hospitable and generous and made sure we were happy with the arrangements. The location is a great location with a shopping center just a few blocks away as well as Sam Choys for an amazing dinner. Ali'i Dr. with all it's wonderful shops, outdoor markets and eating establishments is a quick and easy drive. I would stay here again and would recommend this to any of my family and friends.

Perfect Spot for a Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 days, and loved every minute of it. The condo is spacious and very comfortable. It was very clean when we arrived, and has a relaxed, homey feel that contrasts favorably to the sterile modernity of a lot of condo developments. We enjoyed watching and listening to the waves from the oceanfront lanai, watched sunsets from the oceanfront pool, and snorkeled off the little "hidden" black sand beach below the condo.

Kanaloa is a great complex - multiple buildings spread out on 17 beautifully landscaped acres makes it feel more like a village - shopping center about 1/2 mile away was very convenient, and Keauhou Bay Park is a short walk from the condo.

The unit is not air conditioned, but the ceiling fans and box fans kept air moving around, and it was very comfortable at night. The king-size pillow-top mattress in the bedroom was perfect! A little warm at midday, but then, we were always out anyway - at one of the pools, or snorkeling somewhere, or shopping, etc, etc.

The kitchen is very well stocked, and the equipment closet had everything we needed for the pool, snorkeling, or the beach.

This was our 5th trip to the Big Island, and our second stay at this complex. We will definitely come back, and highly recommend this unit to anyone.

Great Place (4.5)

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed this spacious unit. All the extras, as listed (boogie board, beach chairs, beach towels, cooler, etc.) made it a wonderful stay. All the little extras were there, dishwasher soap, laundry detergent, so there wasn't anything that we needed to purchase other than food.

There's a few things that could use updating, but the spaciousness of the unit and having 2 bathrooms outweigh that. Everything was clean.

We happened to pick a very hot week, with no trade winds blowing, but we used all fans available.

The view from the lanai is beautiful. Most every day we walked to the far side of the pool to watch the sunset, what a treat! Having the grocery store/strip mall so close is great. The setting was perfect for us, not in the heart of town where it was very busy, but close enough as it wasn't a far drive.

This was our first trip to Hawaii. No question that this was a great value!

We had a Great Trip!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great trip!! We visit the Big Island at least once a year and always enjoy!! Your place is very nicely situated on the bay. Much enjoyed morning coffee and breakfast on the lanai. Very nice spot.

We especially enjoyed the ocean-side pool... Great location with the crashing waves and usually quiet (ie very few kids splashing around). We used the floating mattress in the pool, the beach chairs and of course the little cooler. I'd fill it with ice and a few beers and head to the pool. Also spent a few hours on the black sand down below the condo, what a great spot to just watch the waves and veg!!

A refresh may be in order. But the layout is fine. One comment we both had was A/C would be a definite bonus. We've stayed in non-A/C condos before, but in the winter months when its a few degrees cooler. We really noticed it this trip. Once we got the fans going it was a little better, but even the evenings were quiet warm this trip.

Another thing specific to our own personal taste would be a TV in the bedroom. We tend to like laying in bed and falling asleep to a movie or something, but that's just us. For us, the mattress was fine, we sleep on a firm mattress at home and were quite comfortable.

I'd give it a strong 8.5/10, but on a scale of 1-5, its a 4.. A refresh and A/C would put you over the top. We much enjoyed it and will consider staying again (but maybe in the winter months) All in all, you've got a great little spot there!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the detailed feedback and we're glad you had a great time. AC is a challenge for us - Electricity is very expensive, and if we installed it, we've have to raise the daily rate to compensate for the cost. Plus, we've gotten more favorable feedback for not having it - guests don't have to re-acclimate from inside to outside temps. We did add more fans this year to increase the breeze, and recently installed a screen door to improve air flow in the main living area We are working on buffing up the condo, without losing the comfortable, homey feel. New coffeemaker, Hawaii pictures, new bookcase, memoryfoam mattress topper for the king bed, are all recent.
