Keauhou Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Paradise is yours at our Keauhou Akahi condo located in the secluded Keauhou area; it is just south of the charming town of Kona and only 25 minutes from the airport. A lush, well-groomed garden complex with a lovely pool area awaits you. Our second floor, end unit condo has a spacious lanai overlooking a lovely golf course and featuring stunning ocean views. The master bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed while the alcove off the living room holds a trundle bed which sleeps two. This condo is perfect for two couples or a family of four! (An inflatable mattress can accommodate an additional guest if required. And we have a portable crib for little ones!) The condo contains everything you could possibly need to make your vacation in Hawaii perfect: TVs and DVDs in each room; a huge supply of DVD movies and family board games; a laptop computer with printer and wireless Internet; several boogie boards; an assortment of fins and snorkels in a variety of sizes; and beach chairs, mats, and umbrellas.

Within walking distance from our condo, you can take a look at the wild goats on the hillsides, wander along a path with breathtaking ocean views, learn to kayak and surf, or take in a round of golf at the public golf course. Our condo is a mile away from one of the best snorkeling beaches on the island and a very short car trip to the picturesque town of Kona. There is also a shopping center nearby with a grocery store, great restaurants, and a movie complex.

Using our condo as your leaping off point, you can travel up to lush rain forests, hit desert-like locales, observe wild sea turtles in their natural habitat, visit working coffee farms, and walk over recent lava flows. Short drives take you to locations like Hapuna Beach, ranked as one of the best beaches in the state, or Captain Cook's Harbor, one of Hawaii's most serene, sacred spots. For the more adventurous, the island offers scuba diving, horseback riding, zip-lining, and helicopter flights over the active volcano. To help you plan your daily itinerary, we provide a large library of tourist books about the Big Island, as well as a binder filled with helpful tips and recommendations from our previous guests and from us. And to help you get everywhere, we have a plug-in GPS for your car! It is our goal to insure that you have everything you need to make your vacation to Hawaii a memorable one!

About Karen Kenyon

My husband and I first stayed in a Keauhou Akahi condo on our honeymoon 30 years ago. Since that time, we have been continually drawn back to this special place. With my husband's deep love of fishing, scuba diving, and free diving AND my love of photography, our condo has proved to be in an idyllic spot for us.

Karen Kenyon purchased this condo in 2005

Why Karen Kenyon chose Keauhou

We enjoy the garden setting of this complex, as well as its location. Unlike the hotels and condos in the Kohala area, our location is much closer to the lovely town of Kailua Kona. It is also within walking distance to Keauhou Bay (with its canoeing, snorkeling, and boating), to the local golf course, and to the shopping center with movies, restaurants, and stores. Just outside our door are wild goats, birds, and flowers galore. Truly, you don't even need a car to enjoy this setting (though having one is better.) More than that, we like the more serene, quiet atmosphere and weather of Keauhou Bay. In the Kohala area, wind is much more prevalent; in Keauhou, the wind almost never blows.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would like to thank you for sharing your condo with us. It was our first time in Kona and we had a wonderful time. We enjoyed great weather, beaches, and most of all the food. All the tips in the handout your provided before our trip and the binder at the condo were very helpful. Our last day there was most enjoyable; by that I mean we did the kayaking trip and got to swim with 10 or so dolphins. It was magnificent. Again thank you. We hope to be back again sooner rather than later!

This was the best experience I've ever had renting through vrbo and similar sites...and I've never had a bad experience to begin with! In a nutshell- Wonderful place to stay, excellent communication, and the owners are just great people!

First, I want to point out what great communication I experienced in dealing with Dave and Karen. They were prompt to reply to all questions. I could tell that they really enjoy helping, as all communication was thorough and never seemed rushed or like it was a bother. They truly have everything well organized and streamlined to make the process as easy as possible for renters. It was all seamless, from the reservations, to getting in the door, to wrapping things up when it was over. These little things really matter! Lots of great information was provided before the trip (and inside the condo), on everything from places to visit and places to eat. They list all items which are found in the condo (beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, etc), before you leave, so you don't have to pack them or worry about them. They really have thought of every detail.

The condo: Loved it! It stayed cool with just fans and the ocean breeze. Nice furnishings. Very clean. It was well stocked with many items to help enjoy the beach, including nice beach chairs and plenty of snorkel gear. Great entertainment setup, apple tv, movies, fast internet. The lanai was very nice, private, and relaxing. The trundle bed was very comfortable and it sits in an area that you can close off to create a second sleeping area at night (closet as well!). We enjoyed their grill, feeding the geckos on the lanai, and watching the ocean. Comfortable patio furniture to relax in as well. From the lanai we spotted a large pod of spinner dolphins swimming out in the ocean. Great view of the sunset as you can see in the photos. Parking was easy and close to the building, never a problem to find a place. The area was quiet in general, great for relaxing. The kitchen was well stocked with spices and everything you might need for cooking a nice meal.

The location: If you're planning to spend time in Kona, as well as travel south to some of the other beaches and sights like Captain Cook's, this is a perfect place to stay. I liked that it was so close to Kona with all its restaurants, markets, and beaches... but just far enough outside of the crowded area that it was quiet and felt safe.

I will stay here next time I visit the big island! Mahalo Karen and Dave!

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week at Keauhou, HI. This condo was everything as described. The master bed was very comfortable. It was great to have "real" furniture instead of the uncomfortable wicker stuff in other places we have stayed. It was convenient to snorkel beaches, kayak rentals, great restaurants and shopping. I would definitely stay here again! The owners are very helpful and have lots of books, maps and even a variety of snorkel equipment available at the condo. This is the 3rd island we have visited and it was our most relaxing, fun trip!

Wonderful stay in Keauhou.

Our stay here was great. All the comforts of home with a great view to boot. Our favorite time was sitting on the balcony while eating our meals and listening to the quiet sounds of nature. I highly recommend this condo!

The best recommendation I can make for this condo is that we plan to rebook when we return to the Big Island in 2014. We have stayed in other units at the Keauhou Akahi and many other condos in the Islands but have never felt more "at home" than at this condo. The unit is equipped with every amenity you can imagine like DVR and On Demand TV - how many condos have this luxury. The location is ideal, much less wind and rain than further North at the Kohala Coast. It is close to many good restaurants and better yet, close to several farmer's market where ripe fruit and fresh veggies can be had at reasonable prices. The renting process for this unit was clear and easy to accomplish.
You will get an informative and comprehensive packet with recommendations for restaurants, all kinds of activities, beaches, etc - a great packet for the first time visitors.

Great Place To Rest & Rejuvenate

Absolutely marvelous! The wife and I are Big Island residents who needed a vacation of sorts and feel fortunate to have come across this lovely condo. The owners professionalism and prompt attention to our inquiry allowed us to secure the rental with short notice and at a price that is hard to find in the Keauhou area. The pictures can not do this place justice - if you are looking for a place to stay in the Kona area, look no further :-D

Thank you for sharing your space with us, we hope to return for another stay-cation sometime soon!

Aloha

Relax on the Lanai

  • 5 of 5
I awoke each morning to the sound of birdsong and an occasional bleating of a wild goat. The condo's lanai, overlooking a well-kept golf course, was a beautiful spot to watch the sun sink into the ocean each night while sipping a mai tai.
The rooms are well appointed and beautifully decorated -- the master bedroom is very large. It doesn't have air conditioning, but the ocean breezes and orientation of the screened windows and fans makes that a moot point.
I loved watching the friendly geckos on the deck and seeing the myriad tropical birds that were swooping around the gardens. I love to eat local food when I travel --I felt that I hit the jackpot being able to walk to two small farmers' markets nearby (one just a stroll down the hill to the Sheraton Keauhou) to get stocked up on local Kona coffee, baked goods, coconut candy, pineapples and mangoes and to talk to the locals. (The other farmers' market --about a mile away--was much larger.)
Karen and Dave were very helpful on orienting me to the local sites and restaurants. They have a terrific binder featuring "best bets" that they have discovered. I was pleased with their kindness, friendliness, and expertise. I am a stickler about rental cleanliness and I was very impressed at the high standard of care of the condo and the high level of maintenance throughout the complex.
There is one set of stairs to climb up to the entrance, and there is a little incline to get down to the very sweet (and small) pool area, so you do need to be able to climb stairs.
This condo is about a mile or so away from one of the best snorkeling spots on the whole island; I saw a sea turtle nearly every early morning swim! I am going back to this condo this year; I've already recommended it to several friends.
