Overview

Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-3)

Aloha.

When you enter our Hawaiian home, you are in the downstairs living room. A lovely dining area sits to one side, and a lovely sofa invites you to watch the ocean just beyond the patio doors, maybe watch TV, or just take a nap (the couch is a hide-a-bed sleeper).

Walk outside; sit on your comfortable lanai and watch the Pacific Ocean move by. Enjoy a cup of Kona coffee or a glass of wine. A parade of dolphins passes by in the early morning along with paddlers from the nearby Keauhou Canoe Club. You may even see whales breaching just offshore. It is difficult to stay indoors when the view from your lanai, especially at sunset, is so spectacular. If you are lucky, you may even see the famous “green flash”. It really happens.

Go upstairs; the entire second floor has been remodeled into a large bedroom suite. You can watch the ocean from your king-size bed and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the surf. You will awaken, refreshed, with the smell of plumeria blossoms just outside your window. A comfortable sofa-bed is available for another guest. A lovely walk-in shower and bath complete the upstairs suite.

Explore outside; walk down to the black sand beach to collect shells, look for sea turtles, or discover ancient Hawaiian petroglyphs carved in the lava rock. Just a short stroll beyond takes you to one of the finest snorkel beaches on the island. And if you have even more curiosity, you can look for the resident moray eel who lives in the rocks just below your lanai. He likes fried chicken.

Our complex is quiet, safe and lovely, with gardens, pavilions, 3 newly-resurfaced and lighted tennis courts, a large pool and friendly residents. The Keauhou Surf & Racquet Club is close to shopping, restaurants and unlimited beach activities. World class golf is within minutes.

The annual IRONMAN takes place in nearby Kailua-Kona, a lovely and vibrant village just 5 miles up famous Alii Drive. A scheduled shuttle bus runs up and down the drive several times a day.

Up the hill you will find yourself in “Old Hawaii.” Here you find coffee and mac nut plantations, historic villages like Kealakekua and Holualoa, wild groves of papaya, guava and mango. The cool elevations can be a welcome contrast to the sunny and dry weather that has made the Kona Coast a favorite destination for generations of Hawaiians and visitors alike.

Aloha.

About WL FLOOD

I am a pediatrician, and my wife is an educator and writer. You will find several of her books on the bookshelves.

WL FLOOD purchased this condo in 1995

Why WL FLOOD chose Kailua Kona

We first came to Hawaii in 1970, and have been returning ever since. My wife's parents retired to Kona over 30 years ago and we purchased our unit to be able to visit and spend time with them and our growing family in this lovely place.

What makes this condo unique

The sunsets, and the protected location on the bay, make this one of the loveliest locations we have ever seen, anywhere. You can even live here without a car! The shopping is up the hill with a fabulous Farmer's Market on Saturday. You can buy organic vegetables, fruits, coffee and flowers from the growers. We can walk to the beach, play tennis, snorkel with the manta rays, or just sit and relax. We can do much of our work using the very fast broadband wireless connection.

Quiet, ocean front and a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 10 nights in this beautiful townhouse and it was perfect for us. The view is spectacular and we had everything we needed. It is gated, quiet and within walking distance to our favorite beach, Kahalu'u Beach Park and the grocery store is less than 5 minutes away. I would highly recommend this rental especially for an over 55 couple who enjoys quiet, amazing sunsets, snorkeling, and a convenient location. My husband is an avid cyclist and enjoys climbing the hills in the area while enjoying the amazing views. The owner was very easy to communicate with and prompt with responses. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Such a gorgeous location with whales to watch, neighbors to socialize with, and sunsets to enjoy. Who would not want to be here! The condo is beautiful and the owners are wonderful people. We highly recommend this beautifully appointed unit to anyone wanting to enjoy Hawai'i life. There is a very private beach right beside the complex...no snorkeling they say but it is good snorkelling when the sea is calm, which it often is. Lots of yellow tang to enjoy from the condo and a resident eel that provides early morning entertainment. Sunsets are deserving of the return home to enjoy and peeling yourself from the lanai each day is difficult - a true gem! we'd love to return - stayed 2 weeks and we could easily double that time! Centrally located but so peaceful and relaxing!!!, Truly loved our time in this spectacular condo.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We felt the kind hospitality of the owners even before we arrived: We had a crib arranged for our 1-year old son and did not need to worry about bringing our own.

The location is excellent for snorkeling and body boarding beaches nearby. The shopping center is so close also, even offering movies and weekend farmers market.

We enjoyed listening to the endless sound of ocean waves and an amazing view during our patio meal times.

The condo had everything we needed, clean and was very comfortable. There are pool and tennis courts to use if we ever wanted. The archeological site in the complex makes it such a special place.

A big Mahalo to Bill and Nancy. We'd love to come back if we ever get to!

Kona visit

  • 4 of 5

This condo was exactly as advertised. The location was great. Close enough to Kailua/Kona and shopping but not in the middle of a lot of traffic. The views and waterfront location were magnificent. We would give this unit 5 stars if a little TLC and maintenance was provided.

Owner's Response: Thank you! The unit will be painted later this year and issues with water damage near the oceanside windows will be fixed as soon as possible. It really helps to receive helpful comments like this.

Great 2 week stay. Everything wonderful.

  • 4 of 5

Our two week stay at this condo was great. The location was perfect - could walk to snorkel, or just have a wonderful walk along Ali'i Drive (it is a short drive to the main village). Mostly we enjoyed sitting on the lanai watching the waves and the sunset. The view is amazing. The sound of the crashing waves was quite loud but does block out any other noise from either neighbors or the street. We cooked dinner every night and found the kitchen to be quite adequate - the charcoal barbeque was handy. There are so many great things to do on the Big Island - our highlight was "Poke a Stick" lava tour - yes you get to poke a stick in flowing lava. Overall would definitely recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: We are happy it was good for you. The waves are one of our favorite sounds, but they are there all the time! We will have to add the "Poke a Stick" tour to our next trip and add it to our suggestions for future guests. Thanks again.
