Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bed/ 2bath spacious condo on the highly desirable Kona coast

Our condo is the perfect place to 'get away from it all' and kick back. We are located across the street from White Sands Beach, a premier boogie boarding beach which attracts swimmers and snorkelers alike. White Sands beach amenities include staffed lifeguard tower, volleyball net, bathrooms and white sand to relax and catch the sun. Just 1 mile south to Kahalu'u State Park (Snorkel Beach), view hundreds of species of tropical fish and giant green sea turtles in protected calm waters (no waves). We see turtles DAILY at Kahalu'u Beach as they feed off of the algae right at your feet. If you're a golfer, choose from one of the two 18-hole courses at the Kona Country Club just two miles away.

The inviting pool with chaise lounges, jacuzzi, game room with pool table, library, and free tennis courts are available for your use. Take an easy stroll over to the beach or park (with benches along a sea wall or shaded lawn) and enjoy the white sand beach,turquoise water, waves, a swim, snorkeling, the sun, or sunset. We have everything you should need for the beach-chairs/beach mats/snorkel gear/towels. Shop the local farmer's market for great buys on local fruits or shop at the large supermarkets and use the kitchen or barbecue.

Begin your mornings sipping Kona coffee on the 27' lanai while overlooking the palm trees, poinciana treehibiscus,plumerias,and banana trees with peeks of ocean through nearby trees. You may reach our condominium by elevator, up on the second floor away from street noise or pool sounds. It has a gorgeous large pool, four very nice barbecue grills, several free tennis courts , and a game room with a pool table. It also has a spa (hot tub).

We offer as a vacation rental our condominium to discriminating, non-smoking guests when we are tied up with our mainland duties. With that in mind, the kitchen has all of the amenities of home because this is our 2nd home and we keep our kitchen well equipped with a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave oven, and stove. We supply cooking and baking equipment, sharp knives, quality dishes, glassware, and utensils, and all the usual small appliances .Amenities include high speed internet, and 2 large flat screen cable TV's. The unit also includes a washer and dryer so all you need to pack is your bathing suit and a pair of shorts. Reserved parking is underground. We are near an elevator so you don’t have to worry about a long walk from your car to the unit while hauling your luggage. Stay cool in the central air conditioning or open the windows and enjoy the ocean breeze. Comfort abounds whether you choose to relax in the living room or on the lanai.

Additional activities in and around Kailua-Kona include kayaking, sunset cruises, whale watching, parasailing, deep sea fishing, jet skiing, paddle boarding, outrigger canoeing, snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, theater, movies, shopping, and restaurants.

Longer drives will take you to Kilauea Volcano, Mauna Kea Observatories, Waipio Valley, Akaka and Umauma Waterfalls, Dolphin Qwest, Botanical Gardens, Black and Green Sand Beaches, Waimea and Parker Ranch, Ancient Hawaiian Fishponds, Hawaiian Petroglyphs, Coffee Farms, Captain Cook Monument, and Historic Hilo town.

Come vacation at White Sands Village and make memories that will last forever!

About Sally Griffin

My husband Tommy and I are so pleased to be able to share our special place in paradise with you. Both of us were born and raised in MN/WI which means we definitely needed a place to mend our frostbitten skin from the upper Midwest winters. It is inherent in both of us to welcome people into our home so renting out our condo through VRBO and Homeaway seems like a great fit for us. We currently live in Eastern Wisconsin where we are raising our wonderfully curious little son and future surfer/ beach boy.

Sally Griffin purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sally Griffin chose Kailua Kona

We chose this condo because of the proximity to White Sands Beach. We tried to think of all the essentials needed for a perfect vacation and used it as a checklist when choosing to buy our property. We think we hit the mark with this condo! It has everything you need for a complete vacation. White Sands Village is truly a premier location as most condominium complexes on Alii Drive are NOT on a beach.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is spacious and the extra large lanai acts as another living room-just outside. There is a great breeze on the lanai making it a wonderful place for dining, relaxing, napping and listening to the birds. We spent a month in May of 2013 giving the condo a complete update from lighting, art, paint, linens, and furniture to make your vacation a luxury rental experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to thank you for renting your condo to us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The unit was just as described- the complex and the unit were in good condition, clean and well equipped. We really enjoyed coffee on the lanai in the warm sunshine. The location was ideal for us with easy access to the snorkeling beach, the grocery store, and into town. The just opened road, one block south of the condo, gave us quick access to Highway 11. We hope to return again in the future.

Great Help. Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to this great location apartment On January 2015 and had good times on it. We had a little problem and called Sally (owner) and she managed to help us straight away with a very nice attitude. Highly recommended.

Property was quite adequate for our needs.

  • 4 of 5

The property was in a good location relatively close to everything. The description of the condo was accurate. There were a couple of minor issues that we noticed. First of all, the bathrooms were not very clean. Soap scum, dirty showers etc. Also the ice machine in the refrigerator was broken. It was broken for the people before us also. I text messaged the owner regarding these issues but got no response. In fact it was very difficult communicating with the owner. Would not return phone calls in a timely manner. Other than those issues, we enjoyed our stay.

Great location and condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location, across from a beach, but not necessarily the beach you'd choose to go to every day. It was close to other beaches that had great snorkeling, it has a lovely pool, BBQ area and tennis courts. We loved the key-less entry and enjoyed the free long distance anywhere in North America. Has a great bed and shower, every comfort needed. The big lanai had both shade and sun at all times. My only complaints were that it's dated, where a lot of the other suites in the complex have been renovated, and that it didn't include toilet paper (we had to buy some the morning after our first night there) or laundry soap. The three other places we stayed on the island included those things for their guests.

Seriously, People Get to Live Here All Year Long?

Climate inequality! I can’t tell you how difficult it was for us to leave our new red-freckled gecko friend & his balmy paradise habitat to return to single digit temps on the Mainland. When we first entered your immaculate condo, we were greeted by fancy fan-folded towels (nice touch)! We could hang out on the lanai, hang out at the pool, hang out by the grills & hang ten off a surfboard (well, we watched others do that hanging, as we sat on White Sands Beach just across the street from the condo & were entertained by boogie boarders & surfers.)

We saw humpback whale mamas & their new calves as they breached the surface, slapped their tails, & blew spouts in the air; heard male whales’ mating songs; & even enjoyed the company of a manta ray who “adopted” our boat & swam by us for a little while! [NOTE: Whales come down (from Alaska) to these warm waters December-April to breed & give birth. Prime viewing time, our naturalist guide told us, is around Valentines' Day!] I learned the best Grandma trick to teach my grand kids -- how whales eat! They'll LOVE IT! (You parents... not so much!) By the way, when we saw the whales from the tour boat we were just parallel to our own White Sands Beach!!!!!!! And we even saw some as we sat on our beach one day!

A visit to the volcanoes, lava tubes & waterfalls was unlike anything we had ever seen before, & the steaming lava fields along the Saddle Road route were awesome & almost unworldly -- like moon terrain. Other not-to-miss sites were (of course) a traditional luau with its kalua pig feast & its hula & fire dancers (the “real deal!”), a coffee farm tour (talk about FRESH blends!), safe & lovely snorkeling, unbelievably beautiful beaches all around the coastline, terrific hole-in-the-wall to gourmet restaurants, and, naturally, breathtaking sunrises & sunsets.

And each day, we were happy to return, tuckered out, to the comfort of your tropically charming condo, Sally! Except for one impatient teenager who yelled at us for driving the speed limit (some things never change) everyone else everywhere on the island was SO NICE! You couldn’t have picked a prettier or more perfect spot to have a vacation home!

So as I write this review, from my bitterly-cold-minus-six-degrees hibernation cave, I wonder if that cute little Madagascar day gecko – that dear, happy friend who loved playing hide-and-seek with me behind the painting on your lanai -- misses me as much as I miss him. We can’t wait to go back to visit!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I selected this rental because of the location and price. This home was the perfect spot for us to call home for the week. Great, covered, parking. The bed was amazingly comfortable after a day spent exploring the island and the location right across from the beach was amazing. We enjoyed snorkeling at nearby two steps the best! We are already looking forward to when we can stay here again.

Fabulous Island Oasis

  • 5 of 5

I can not thank Sally enough for providing us the opportunity to stay in her condo. The location was fabulous. Less than a 2 minute walk to the ocean, absolutely breathtaking location to take in sunrise and sunsets.

The neighbors were very kind and helpful. They invited us over when hurricane Flossy tipped off. Helped to assure us what to expect.

Sally had also called and emailed to ensure that we were ok and check if we needed anything.

The accomodations were perfect, well maintained and a great layout for more then one couple allowing everyone their own space. Very clean and well kept.

Due to our Basketball schedule we did not have the opportunity to utilize any of the equipment that Sally had advised was there, but I thought that it was nice that they had mentioned items for use (boards, snorkel gear, etc)

I have already recommended this property to friends, family and colleagues that are considering Hawaii as their destination.

The markets, manta ray swim and snorkel beach were a must see. I did not have snorkel gear with me, and was able to still enjoy several varities of sea life.

This was truly a paradise oasis.

I would advise having access to a vehicle or bicycle to visit Kona shops.

Thank you again for a tremendous experience.
