Welcome to our condo in Hawaii, we like to give everyone a well deserved and affordable vacation. This is a very private and newly renovated, top floor corner unit centrally located in Kailua-Kona, Big Island Hawaii. 350 days of sunny weather in a year with some of the best beaches in the world, all within a short distance.
Our condo complex Kona Shores is located just outside the busy part of Alii Dr. within 1 mile walking distance to the town centre and farmer's market. There is a ocean side pool with beautiful sunset and possible whale, dolphin sighting in the early mornings.
Our condo offers a private and relaxing setting with cozy home feel and designated parking space. A great place to come back to after exploring what some of the amazing and diverse places the Big Island has for you to experience.
Description: Kitchen is all newly renovated with granite countertops, new cabinets and matching vanity set in a large bathroom with a waterfall faucet. Fully furnished top corner unit with a very private and tranquil setting. There is a Nova Gel Memory Foam mattress, leather sofa bed, 32 inch Samsung TV, DVD Player, cookware, rice cooker, coffee maker, kettle, dinner ware and cutleries for you to use. There are lots of novels, guide books, body board, and snorkeling gear left from previous guests. High speed internet is available. Coin operated laundry facility in complex. No Smoking and no pet allowed.
We spent our honeymoon in Kona and was captivated by the beauty, life and diversities of the Big Island. Fell in love with the island life and our condo is our 2nd home away from home. We would love to retire here.
Kim and Lake purchased this condo in 2011
The space within this unit is private, peaceful and tranquil, we immediately felt right at home!
We were very pleased with the condo, location, and pool. Kim and Lake are excellent to work with! Prompt replies, very polite; they have kept the unit in nice condition with new kitchen cabinets, countertops, bathroom fixtures, etc. Beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, boogie board, etc. are all available. We also, like other guests have noted, found ourselves on the tiled lanai every morning for breakfast and most evenings for dinner. Even though it is on Ali'i Drive, which tends to be busier, it still feels very private and it was quiet at night for a restful sleep. We have been coming to Hawaii for 10 years and have stayed in many condos and houses. We would definitely come back to stay at Kim and Lake's!
My wife and I consider this condo our home away from home. We enjoy this condo and its location so much we have already booked next years stay. this will be our 3rd year staying here. Its close to Kona, within walking distance to restaurants and shops it has a great pool with access to the ocean and the beautiful Kona sunsets. The condo is very comfortable and spacious, large living area, kitchen and bathroom. We enjoy cooking in the newly renovated kitchen and enjoying our breakfast on the lanai with the family of gecko's who scamper up and down the palm trees right next to the lanai. There's a couple of farmers market within a 15 to 20 minute walk from the condo. If your into snorkelling there are some great beaches within a short drive, great hikes, Pololu Valley and volcano's they are all within a couple of hour drive. We are already starting to plan what we will be doing next year. If you are looking for a great place to stay on the Big Island you couldn't do better than this condo and Kim and Lake are always respectfully and a pleasure to deal with.
We had the best vacation ever! We downsized this trip, our sixth to the Big Island, and the condo was perfect for us. Breakfast every day and dinner most nights on the lanai. The rest of the time we were at the beach or the farmer's market or sightseeing! We'd stay again except we're moving to the Big Island!
This was our 2nd stay at this condo and it felt like home again. We love that there is a lot of space to spread out and the new couch is very comfy! We didn't use the kitchen, but it contains everything you might need to cook a good meal. The bathroom is huge with a lot of hangers to store your clothes. You can find a lot of beach gear on the lanai incl. bodyboards and beach chairs, snorkel gear etc. so you can have a good day at the Magic Sands Beach or the turtle beach (Kahalu'u Beach Park), which is very close by car.
But besides all the beaches I LOVE the pool. It's awesome to go for a swim and watch the ocean at the same time. Could spend days there!
The condo is very close to everything and I'll give you a restaurant recommendation: Da Poke Shack, just down the street, serves the best Poke I've ever tried!
Kim and Lake are so easy to deal with and we would love to come back very soon!
We had plenty of room to spread out in, and enjoyed afternoons at the pool. Traffic on Alii Drive was noisy at 6:30 am and 9:30 pm - we couldn't bear to have the sliding door onto the lanai open at those times. We had no car, and did a lot of walking - also rode the "trolley", which only made a round-trip every two hours. Kim and Lake were super hosts! Everything was perfectly clean, with lots of utensils and even a few starters in the kitchen cupboards - rice, sugar, tea, s&p, olive oil. That reduced our shopping list nicely!
This Kona Shores studio condo is clean and simple accommodation providing a quiet comfortable space for the budget conscious traveller. The condo is located approximately a mile from town, about a 15 minute walk. Both the kitchen and bathroom are older in style, but are spacious and the kitchen is equipped with plenty of pots and pans and also an electric kettle for tea drinkers like myself! There is a small electric grill intended for indoor use if you prefer not to use the communal charcoal BBQs. There is no dishwasher or washer/dryer in the unit, but there are excellent laundry facilities in the complex with brand new washers/dryers.
I found the queen bed to be very comfortable and with the addition of the extra memory foam mattress provided, the futon/sofabed was ok as well. The covered lanai was very private with a lovely plumeria tree directly in front. The new patio table and chairs on the lanai were a nice touch and I enjoyed the view of the mountains from there. Having A/C and WiFi was a terrific bonus as well as the snorkel, masks and a dedicated parking space. Without a doubt, the biggest assets were the gorgeous ocean view pool area and the owners, Lake and Kim. All my correspondence with them was promptly answered and they even sent me an e-mail while I was there to be sure I was enjoying my stay.
Mahalo Kim and Lake for sharing your Kona condo!
